From Design to Installation
Make an appointment with a designer. At this meeting we will discuss with you your ideas, needs and requirements for your kitchen. This helps us to build a picture of your project. The discussion will include items such as appliances, worktops, lifestyle and budget. Everyone has a budget to work within, and establishing this enables us to suggest the correct materials and design for your kitchen. We are also able to work from architects plans which can be a useful starting point if you are not local to the area.
Working with the collected information, it would not be unusual to work on several designs. To view and discuss the options further a visit is offered. This gives you an opportunity to input your thoughts and any further requirements you may have. We illustrate all our designs on a CAD package, that will help you visualise the overall look. One the design has been agreed we will provide you with a written quote.
When the design/quote has been agreed a 50% deposit is required. We visit your home to complete a final measure and survey with a carpenter, who will be responsible for fitting your kitchen. This is a good opportunity to meet with him and to discuss any questions that may arise during our visit.
After the final survey we will send you a letter with details of your kitchen order and a suggested fitting date. We will also provide you with a final plan and fitting requirements guide as a point of reference. This is especially helpful if the project involves the services of a builder of you are managing the project yourself. Alternatively, when details are provided we can communicate all information directly to your builder, plumber and electrician. If guidance is needed on deadlines, we can provide a schedule list of works.
Approximately three weeks before the fitting date we will send you a full statement. Only when your kitchen has been manufactured and a delivery date confirmed will we request the remaining balance less the cabinet fitting charge that will be due on completion of the kitchen fit. All our kitchen cabinets are hand finished, so once the cabinet installation is complete we will arrange for our painter to either paint or oil the cabinets. The charge for the painting and fitting is paid directly to the kitchen fitter and painter.
