Welcome to our proprietary Kitchen Design Survey!

The following survey will help us understand, 1) how you use your existing kitchen and, 2) how you hope to enjoy your new kitchen. Please answer all questions openly and freely. To stimulate design ideas, you may find it helpful to also survey others in your household who will use your kitchen. The answers you provide will help us design a new kitchen that fits your unique taste and lifestyle.
