  1. San Diego Restaurant Supply has a design dept that's geared towards commercial but may do residential. Give 'em a call.

    1. Also check out Fixtures- I believe they have folks in house to help you out.

        1. All the last 5 years I've been through the design process on 2 large commerical kitchens, 4 convenience stores, 5 espresso units and 1 residential kitchen (mine).

          I can tell you what works, what doesn't work and who *not* to use. Our kitchen is functional and a thousand times better than it was, not to mention far more attractive, but there are a LOT of things that I still want to change.

          Over the years I've also purchased several million dollars worth of kitchen equipment and know what will last for a very long time and what won't. Would be happy to share

            I would hire you in a hot second...stand by, waiting for money... :(

          2. Can't compete with DD. . impressive!

            Depends on what you want to appliances..complete overhaul?

            When I built my home, I went around to the different kitchen studios with built out kitchens for ideas and then implemented them into my own.
            Design Studio West in LJ is a great place to get ideas and I have used their designers on some schematics.

            Pacific Sales has some great deals on ss appliances..

            Use a licensed contractor...lots of Dbags out there.

              Truer words have not been spoken on this forum. A good, licensed contractor is worth his (or her) weight in gold and then some.
