HOME REMODEL & DESIGN FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will my cabinets take to arrive?
The lead time generally runs about 8 weeks, but can vary. Check with us for current lead times.
Does Quail + Blu provide labor?
The only labor Quail + Blu offers is countertop installation. However, we do have a referral list for clients who need someone to install our products, or who need a general contractor. Clients contract directly with the installer/contractor of their choice and not through Quail + Blu.
Can you come out to my house to design my space?
Quail + Blu offers in-store design services, but we also work with excellent interior designers who offer a variety of on-site design services. Contact us for more information.
What is Quail + Blu’s role in my project?
We design and provide your finish materials, including cabinetry, countertops, tile, lighting, cabinet and door hardware, carpet, and hardwoods.
I already have a designer/contractor/home builder…can I work with you?
Yes, absolutely! We welcome working with any professionals you’re already working with.
We’re doing a custom home/whole house remodel, and I don’t know what I want to do…where do I start?
If you don’t have a clear direction of where you want to go with your remodel, start by looking at Pinterest, Houzz, or Instagram. Save pictures where you like the overall look, or a specific element you love, or pictures of spaces you don’t like. That is all very helpful when you come in to begin your design, and it will begin to give you a direction. Bring your architectural drawings in with you for your appointment, or email them ahead of time and we can print them.
How much should I budget for my materials?
There’s a vast range of what you can spend on materials. You may have been given a budget by your builder or contractor, and that budget may or may not be able to be reconciled with what you are trying to achieve. It’s always best to get your estimates as early on in your project as possible so you can determine if your numbers are in line, and if they’re not, whether you need to adjust your budget or your materials. Check out our budgeting tool in our Design Tools section for more detailed help with your budget.
