At Prima, we pride ourselves in delivering timeless designs
tailored individually to maximize space functionality,
boost aesthetics, and boast personality.
The first step in the process of creating your dream kitchen, bathroom, living room, or storage space begins with the collaboration between the client and our designer team. Whether done remotely, or in person, the first step aims to understand what aspects of functionality and aesthetics fit within our clients’ dream space, and how we can maximize the potential of any space through optimal design methodology based on the clients’ needs and desires.
The design follows the conceptualization from the first meeting. Understanding how our cabinets work allows us to fit them around a space based on your needs, putting both functionality and aesthetics at the forefront. After a baseline design is curated, our team at Prima works with you to further refine the details, and address the most important elements that separate a good kitchen from a great one. The design flow process is generally organic on both ends, allowing for a multitude of revisions of concept, and alterations of layouts and finishes.
Following the completion of the final design process and approval from the client, our team takes over the entirety of the logistical duties for the order, configuration, manufacturing, shipping and handling, as well as customs clearance between Germany and the United States. Our team completes all technical packets for the ordering of the material and ensures their fitting capabilities and compliance with our quality control team in Germany over the span of a week.
After receiving clearance, all your new kitchen material is manufactured in our partner’s factory in Germany for a lead time of approximately 10-14 weeks. Once completed, our team ensures the proper packaging and handling of your completed pieces with our forwarders, as well as their placement in a singular container, not shared with any other products that are not arriving for Prima, to ensure quality control throughout the transportation and minimize the probability of over-the-sea damages. Lastly, once the container ship arrives on U.S. soil, we schedule and carry forward the pick-up and delivery of your new kitchen or living space through U.S. customs and finalize all clearances before the final delivery.
After clearing customs, we’re at the final stretch before your dream cabinets are delivered! At Prima, we handle the last mile completion by reloading the cabinets from storage or customs to our trucks, then delivering them directly to your home! This ensures the last mile quality control of the process is handled internally. Upon delivery, we begin the installation. As with any major interior project, the installation is the most crucial step of all.
A controlled design process ensures that we will face no surprises in the end, that all ordered items will fit perfectly into your space, and that any and all alterations are planned ahead of time if need be performed. At Prima, we complete every single installation internally without ever outsourcing, boasting two decades of experience in installing German kitchen cabinets for perfect outcomes.

“I recently had my basement remodeled and turned into an apartment. I had Prima Kitchen design and install the entire kitchen, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Besnik is extremely professional, precise, and timely. The woman at the showroom was also extremely helpful, recommending the best options given my preferences and budget. The kitchen came out absolutely marvelous, I’m overjoyed and could not be more pleased!”
“From the moment I walked into the showroom I knew this was the kitchen I wanted. Natasha and Aris were fantastic to work with. Natasha heard everything I said, and worked tireless to design my dream kitchen. Her designs were perfect. Once the cabinets arrived, they were quickly and efficiently brought inside. Then, before my eyes, Aris and his father worked for five straight days installing. The work was clean and done to perfection. Natasha’s design appeared before my eyes. Everything is perfect and Natasha came to make sure. Prima Kitchen was a pleasure to work with and the end result is perfect. I could not be happier. Will update with photos when the counter top is installed.”
