Most of the work we undertake is referred to us by recommendation so, It is often the case that a call will made to us by a friend or relative of a previous customer.
After a brief conversation in which we can often gain a good idea of the type of kitchen a customer may want ,a meeting will be arranged to measure the room in question or to view architects drawings of the proposed extension or new building.
During this visit sizes will be taken, styles will be discussed and the type of home ie age architectural style and room dimensions will be taken into account. With the information we take from this first stage we are then able to return to the workshop and draw up preliminary 3D plans and are able at this point to give both a rough estimate of cost* and a set of plans and elevations for you to consider.
*(We do not have a “prices start from ”figure each Kitchen is costed on a case by case basis depending on size specification, material and complexity).
It is now that the design consultation begins, another meeting is arranged to discuss in greater detail, positions, sizes, appliances and most importantly how you would like to work in your new kitchen. Advice will be given on all aspects of your design from materials chosen, colours used and practical advice on both durability and ease of care.
A new more detailed and accurate set of drawings will be produced based on this meeting. Alterations will be made, and additions will be included until a final plan is approved by the client and work can begin on making your design reality.
N.B. The consultation and design process is an exhaustive one. A handmade kitchen is a complex and detailed piece of interior design so it is important we take time with you to aid your choices and ensure that the final product exceeds your expectations.
