Remodeling your kitchen is both a fascinating process and a great investment. You create a wonderful and functional living space to cook fantastic meals, have fun, prepare lovely beverages, with friends, and family. Additionally, a kitchen remodeling project yields a very high return rate in the real estate market. To ensure that such a large project goes smoothly as possible, it is essential to carefully plan factors like labor, kitchen size, and product selection. The process can take days or weeks depending on the project. We at Hillside Kitchens are here to help with your kitchen remodeling project with our expert designers and professional team. With our 20 years of experience in the kitchen design and remodeling industry, we will create the kitchen of your dreams!   

Measuring Your Kitchen for Free

Our kitchen remodeling process for your dream kitchen begins with a simple call. At Hillside, we like to see this first touch as the beginning of our unique relationship. With this unity, we aim to fully please you until the end of your kitchen design project. We can talk over the main points of your remodeling project over the phone and then begin our first step; measurement. You can either measure your home yourself as instructed by our side or schedule an appointment for one of our experts to come to visit your home for measurements without any charges. The choice is yours, however, we suggest that we assist you at the very beginning by taking the measurements ourselves, as professional measurements can yield the best results.

Deciding On Your Kitchen Design Layout


Our expert designers will be with you from start to end. We will present your kitchen in real-time 3D color rendering for free. Our kitchen remodeling software will be able to show you the unique details of each and every product that you selected in a digital environment. The best way to do this is to schedule a kitchen showroom appointment for free with one of our expert designers. After you narrow down your desired products, colors, materials, styles, and brands, our kitchen designer will present you with a final design. Once pleased with the project, we will begin the most fun steps; selecting our kitchen products.

Selecting Your Kitchen Cabinets


From traditional remodeling ideas to modern remodeling ideas, kitchen cabinets are one of the most functional elements of our kitchens. That’s why their color, details, and style are very important. We assist you in choosing the best style, color, and brand of kitchen cabinets for your home depending on your needs. Our wide variety of different kitchen cabinets will ensure that you find exactly what you seek for your dream home kitchen!

Ordering and Delivery of Your New Kitchen Cabinets

Once you are set with the style of your kitchen cabinets, we make the order to various manufacturers. We require a 50% down payment during this stage. Depending on the origin zone of your product manufacturers, the item arrival dates can vary. Europe originating kitchen cabinet brands tend to naturally deliver their products later than domestic orders. It is essential to be informed of the potential delivery date of each and every one of your items by your project manager. Once the products arrive, we will inform you and schedule a suitable date for installation.

Ordering and Delivery of Your New Kitchen Cabinets


Once the installation date arrives for your brand-new kitchen cabinets, our project manager will facilitate communication between you and the crew. After confirmation, the installation crew will arrive on the premises with your products. We’ll do everything possible to prevent us from disrupting your daily life cycle. If specific requirements are needed such as extra space, area vacation, or removal of certain items from a site we will inform you in advance.

Measuring & Selecting Your Kitchen Countertops and Backsplashes

Now that you have gotten your new kitchen cabinets it is time to choose other essential units for your kitchen such as kitchen countertops and backsplashes. The reason why we measure these after the installation of your kitchen cabinets is due to the fact that kitchen countertop and backsplash measurements require your kitchen cabinets to be installed first for accurate measurements.

Unlike the measurement process in your kitchen cabinets, we take the measurement for your kitchen countertops and backsplashes ourselves to make precise calculations for the installation process. We take these measurements after you make a 50% down payment for your surface products.

There is no wrong choice when it comes to countertop and backsplash materials. You can choose whichever selection you’d like suitable to your unique requirements. To have a better understanding of how different types of stone materials feel and look like, you can visit us in our own in-door slab yard located in Ridgefield, New Jersey.

Ordering and Delivery of Your New Countertop and Backsplash Products

Now that your kitchen countertops and backsplashes are chosen, we can move on to their ordering process. When it comes to marble, granite, and quartzite, we will most likely have them in our stockpiles located in our own slab yards. Quartz surfaces may require ordering from time to time depending on their stock availability, and if that is the case, we order them from their respective manufacturers. Our quartz surfaces usually take 2 to 4 work days to arrive. Once the products arrive, they are fabricated in our own premises. As soon as your products are ready for delivery, you will be informed and we will schedule a suitable timeframe for installation.

Installing Your Stylish Kitchen Countertops & Backsplashes


When your schedule has been assigned for installing your new kitchen countertops and backsplashes, our crew will arrive on the premises with the necessary tools and equipment required to design your beautiful kitchen surfaces. The process is pretty much the same with kitchen cabinets, as we will do everything in our power to allow you to maintain your daily routine. If specific needs arise, we will inform you in advance.
