The kitchen design process
How to get started with a kitchen renovation?
Information and meeting
Our first point of contact is to arrange an appointment with you. This is usually done onsite where we can see the space, take measurements and discuss your requirements. If your project is a new build or extension this meeting usually takes place in our showroom. The purpose of this meeting is to collect your thoughts and ideas as well as your preferences. These preferences can include design concepts, preferred materials, colour schemes and appliance details. We also encourage customers to visit our showroom so that you can meet our team, see where everything is manufactured, view the quality of our work and take some samples and information home. We welcome customers to our showroom at any time, no appointment is necessary.
The designing process
All of your kitchens measurements are transferred into our design program where our designers can then begin to digitally create your new kitchen. We take into account storage areas, ease of access and generous preparation areas whilst designing. Once completed it is then shown to you as a digital representation of what the finished kitchen will look like within your space including multiple 3D views as well as a detailed floor plan.
Multiple Contract Options
Our contract can be for the supply and installation of your new kitchen only, or we can include the supply and installation of your new kitchen as well as the coordination of our reliable longstanding team of subcontractors (plumber, electrician, plasterer etc). For your peace of mind we offer a fixed price contract, this includes the coordination of all of our subcontractors. Most of our customers choose to include the subcontractors as part of their kitchen contract. We then project manager the entire job from start to finish making the process of installing your new kitchen smooth and stress free.
Manufacturing Your New Kitchen
Once you are happy with your design and have made all of your final selections regarding materials, colours and appliances and the contract is in place we will then commence building your custom cabinetry. We combine modern technology with quality craftsmanship to build your custom kitchens in our modern workshop. We take enormous care at the kitchen manufacture stage to make sure that all kitchen cabinetry we produce is something that we can all be proud of. We put our name to every kitchen we create so we strive to maintain the high standard our customers have come to expect over the last 30+ years!
Only the very best materials and hardware are used during manufacture, ensuring your kitchen is made from the finest components available. For over 30 years we have been using the 'Blum' range of hinges and drawer systems that carry a lifetime warranty. Please visit the links to our many suppliers. All of the materials and hardware we use and recommend are on display in our showroom and we encourage you to come in to view the many different options available.
Below is Blum's latest 2018 - 2019 catalog of all of their kitchen cabinet hardware
We believe onsite cabinet installation is of vital importance to the end result. The team installing your new kitchen are fully qualified cabinet makers with many years of experience both building and installing kitchens. We have very strict guidelines for our kitchen installation to ensure that it is without flaws or imperfections.
Having the best kitchen design means nothing if it is not manufactured and installed correctly and to the highest standard. We take immense pride in every kitchen we create!
