With COVID-19 forcing people to stay at home and refrain from “non-essential” activities, you may be wondering if moving forward with your planned kitchen renovation is a good idea.
The answer? YES! The time has never been better.
Finding the time to tackle home improvements can be difficult under the best of circumstances. Being homebound, however, does have its advantages: This is the perfect opportunity to spruce up your living space.
Virtual Kitchen Design Consultations
Despite the challenging circumstances, you can use this time to design the kitchen you’ve always wanted. Even though we can’t meet face-to-face during social distancing, I can help you create the kitchen of your dreams through a virtual consultation.
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, in-person meetings were the norm. But it’s become clear that online or telephone consultations are just as good (and often much more convenient for time-crunched professionals and multi-tasking families).
In fact, online design and problem solving are something that I will continue to offer to clients in the future as they ultimately provide more flexibility!
What to Expect
Before our online meeting, I’ll ask you to send me photos of the space you want to work on, as well as measurements. Don’t worry if you don’t know how or what to look for – I’ll walk you through the entire process!
After we set up a time to ‘meet’, whether it’s online or over the phone, we will discuss ideas, budget, and the entire design-and-development process.
We’ll exchange dynamic, 3D renderings for your review. And once a plan is agreed upon, I can also provide a rough estimate of your installation costs for your budgeting needs. We can begin the purchase and scheduling as time and circumstances allow.
Why Use Lyons-Archer?
You don’t want a cookie-cutter kitchen in your home – and now is the time to dream big! This is a great time to think about how we can design your space to work better for you and your family.
Cabinets form the backbone of any kitchen, and as an independent kitchen designer, I take pride in the brands that I offer. For example, my Woodland, Prairie and Artizen lines provide classic or contemporary American looks. These lines are all family-owned businesses and made in South Dakota.
My newest cabinet product line, Prodigy, offers sleek European styling, is designed in Spain, and manufactured in the South Carolina.

Narrow Kitchen with Wide Appeal
By removing the soffit, and replacing the squat cabinets with tall ones, the client realized more storage and an updated, roomier look. Visitors often ask the client if she bumped out the kitchen, since it feels larger than before the renovation.
With this newly redesigned kitchen, our client realized more storage and an updated, roomier look. "Visitors often ask me if we bumped out the kitchen since they say it feels larger, " she said.
Removal of the soffit and replacing the squat wall cabinets with taller ones were responsible for this effect.
During these unsettling times, your home is your refuge. You may be looking around and noticing areas that no longer fit into your design concept or don’t spark joy. Maybe you intended to begin a home renovation this spring anyway, and now you feel like there’s no way forward.
