  • How much should I budget for the complete renovation of my kitchen?

    You must consider several factors; the kitchen includes many elements such as plumbing, electricity, lighting, ventilation, heating, finish carpentry, tiling, flooring, cabinets and countertops, paint, and decoration, etc. … Not to mention the purchase of new electrical appliances. The choice of materials largely influences the total cost of the project, hence the importance of carefully planning the design and layout with an experienced team that will help you achieve your goal, without breaking the bank. In general, the total price of a turnkey project is between $25,000 and $50,000. Every project is different and unique, and the best way to know the cost of your project is to meet us in our store so that we may advise you and meet your needs.

  • How long does it take to complete the work?

    In general, a period of 10 working days (two weeks) is required to completely renovate a kitchen. The total time may be extended by a few days for example, if we have to remove a bearing wall, add a new window, or change the location of structural members or appliances. The redesign of lighting and electrical circuits, as well as plumbing modifications must be considered. If only kitchen cabinets are to be installed, please allow 2 to 3 days depending on the complexity of the layout.

  • Must I leave my home during the work?

    Your complete absence is not required, as the work takes place during normal working hours (8:00 am to 4:00 pm) from Monday to Friday. We install protective mats on the floors and stairs, isolate the work area from the rest of the house areas with plastic sheeting, and take care to clean up at the end of each workday. Just be prepared to have no access to your kitchen for about 10 days, and then you can enjoy your new layout!

  • What materials are used and where are they from?

Annual visits to several international shows, including the prestigious Euro Cuccina in Milan, ensure that we keep up with future trends.

  • What is the warranty on my kitchen?

    Your kitchen cabinets come with a 10-YEAR WARRANTY against defects in manufacture, assembly or operation. See details in the section reserved for this purpose. Installation and labor are covered by a one-year warranty.

  • What does the name Bröder mean?

    In Swedish, bröder means “brothers”. Since the management team is made up of two brothers, among several other people, the choice of the name was derived from this inspiration. The entire team is represented by a camaraderie of five core people; the CEO and his wife, the main designer, the CFO and his wife, the sales director, and his brother, the director of operations.

  • Do you offer financing?

    Yes, your complete project can be financed on-site using Desjardin’s AccordD program. We would be pleased to explain the tools and how it works during your visit to our showroom.

  • What is the price per linear foot?

    We do not offer a price by linear foot, simply because this practice does not represent the final price of a realistic project. Your kitchen project is like no other – it is unique in its design and construction, choice of accessories, and the choice of materials and options influence the final price. We prefer to calculate the actual price, offering you a realistic number based on your choices and preferences.
