How We Work

The Ulrich Process:
Complete and Comprehensive Design and Remodeling

At Ulrich, Inc. we’ve had decades to refine and perfect our design and remodeling process so that each project goes from a well-designed plan to well-executed completion with our trademark attention to our customers’ needs—and every detail along the way.

Seven Steps to a Gorgeous New Space

Ulrich, Inc.’s process is designed not only to build a beautiful new kitchen, bathroom, addition, or other living space in your home … it’s also designed to build a long-term relationship with our clients, from initial consultation through construction and many happy years beyond.

Showroom visit / initial consultation.

Visit our Ridgewood, NJ showroom to meet us and see first-hand the quality and beauty of our work, the spaces we have designed, and the products we offer. You’ll be able to meet with a design team member or set an appointment to go over the breadth of our services. This will give you a chance to express your unique requirements, share your ideas, and discuss budget parameters.


In-home design consultation / in-depth needs assessment.

Your designer can view your existing space, take measurements and photographs, and help flesh out your vision for your new kitchen, bath or home remodeling project. He/she will ask you questions about your lifestyle in order to create the most comfortable space for the way you live and your household’s particular needs.


Design concept and budget presentation.

Your designer will present the conceptual ideas and a project budget developed with your objectives in mind. A project development fee is required at this time to engage Ulrich, Inc. as your design firm. We will then complete the design and specifications including detailed floor plans, elevations and interpretive drawings (or renderings) for final review.


Expert guidance with product selection.

Shop our showroom or local vendors. Either way, your design expert will help you select all of the products and materials to achieve the look and function unique to your vision. This includes the cabinetry, countertops, flooring, backsplash, fittings, fixtures, and hardware. With great attention to detail, we will guide you towards a beautiful outcome!



At this stage, you will review all the final plans, specifications and contract documents. Product selections will be listed as will the anticipated timing for start and completion, total project cost, and payment schedule.



Project management.

Your dedicated project manager will double check all on-site measurements, and work with our operations and production teams to ensure that all products and materials are ordered to specification and arrive on site when needed. You’ll have a capable professional overseeing every step and troubleshooting as needed, so you don’t have to.


Ulrich’s long-term, hands-on commitment to service and quality.

We stand behind all of our installations and provide lifetime service on our work. Should you need a knick repaired on a cabinet door, a hinge adjusted, grout replaced, have a question, need help in setting up a service call for one of your appliances, or need other work done on an Ulrich installation, we will gladly work with you to get it taken care of.

Contact us at any time at 201-445-1260.


Consumer Care Consultant

As an added benefit, if you’ve renovated or put in a new kitchen and purchased your appliances with us, our Consumer Care Consultant will contact you upon project completion to set up an appointment to help you get started with everything. This personal, in-home service—a hallmark of our commitment to quality and service— ensures you are comfortable using and caring for your beautiful new kitchen for years after it’s completed.

Our Consumer Care Consultant will show you how to use all of the features of your new appliances and how to maintain them. She will help you register the appliances to make sure you receive every possible benefit from the manufacturers’ warranties; instruct you on how to best clean and maintain your new surfaces, including cabinets, countertops and floors; and will remain available to you for any future use and care questions or service issues.

    “We are quite pleased with the design and construction of our kitchen. Your guidance during the selection of cabinetry, appliances, countertop material and hardware was invaluable. Adding in the obstacles caused by the pandemic created a challenging situation, however, your professionalism, experience and knowledge made the project a success. Our kitchen surpassed our expectations and we are grateful for the time, thought, energy and effort expended on our behalf. We are happy to have chosen Ulrich."

    Every morning when I come downstairs and walk into the kitchen, it feels like Christmas all over again. Many, many thanks Ulrich, Inc., for the spectacular work done in creating our beautiful new kitchen.

    Ulrich built a 300’ addition, created an open concept encompassing the kitchen, dining and living rooms, a hearth room with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace, and a lovely outdoor space for us – all of which looks amazing!

  • Deborah Davis and Mark Urman

    We postponed renovating our kitchen for ten years because we heard so many horror stories from friends and neighbors about their experience. Then we met one of your interior designers – she turned our small kitchen into a high-wattage jewel box that delights us every day. ULRICH is a superior company that delivers the best ideas, the best materials and workmanship, and, in the end, the very best kitchen. Thanks you and we would be happy to recommend you to anyone who cares about perfection.

    I am writing to thank the entire ULRICH team for transforming our kitchen and powder room into the perfect space for our 1918 home in Westwood, NJ. I believe the remodeling process was as quick and painless as it could possibly be and completely free of the horror stories that one typically hears when discussing home remodeling project.” “We have been impressed by the team approach your company uses. Every person we have come in contact with has been friendly, responsive and helpful in finding answers and solutions throughout the process.” “ULRICH operates like a well-oiled machine and we want to thank everyone for doing such a beautiful job.
