Our Process

Initial Consultation

We invite you to call or email to schedule an initial consultation that can occur in our Metairie Road showroom, in your home, or over the telephone. The goal of this first meeting is to get an idea of the scope of your project and for you to get a better idea of the types of products and services we offer.  If you have house plans available you would provide us these either initially or in our follow up meeting.

Follow Up

After you have had a chance to view some of our recent kitchen designs, product lines, and door styles, we then determine our role in assisting you in your journey. We can assist you strictly on a consulting basis which we charge an hourly fee of $175 or we furnish you with a kitchen design for a sum of $2,000 which includes four hours of consultation. When we provide you with a design, we will also provide you with a cabinet and appliance quote for your project. All fees due for design and consultation can be applied to the purchase of your kitchen.


In the envisioning stage, we begin looking at any ideas or inspirations you might have, we explore the many cabinet door styles and colors as well as our portfolio of recent projects for inspiration and defining your preferences. We also examine your house plans and/or the existing structure to help us create a space that is architecturally harmonious with the rest of the house. We take your vision and combine it with our nearly 50 years of design expertise and best practices, and we create a plan that is completely unique to your home and lifestyle.


If you elect for Lagarde’s to supply you with what we believe are the best cabinets in the industry both on a build quality and absolute value, we will order your cabinets and/or appliances with a 50% deposit required at the time of order.


Once your cabinets and appliances have arrived and it is time for installation, we will recommend a highly skilled carpenter to install the kitchen. We work with only a select group of craftsman that are capable of executing the job who have a keen eye for detail and meet our standards of stringent quality. We make frequent visits to the project to ensure that the installation is progressing according to our plan.
