Book Your Appointment
When you book your appointment, you’ll be asked if you would like a measurement appointment too or if you’ll provide the measurements for our team initially work with.
If you book a measurement appointment, a member of our team will come out to your home and take accurate measurements of your kitchen, they’ll also note where the plumbing & electrical points currently exist, the views to take advantage of, and any other features to take into account in the kitchen design.
How To Prepare
We recommend you take a brochure when you book your design appointment, go through it and tear out the pages with ideas you’d particularly like to include in your design. Plus use a service like Pinterest or create a physical vision board of the types of style looks you love.
Once you’ve completed your wish list, send this over to your designer who will incorporate these ideas into their initial design.
If you have a budget in mind it is useful to provide this to the designer as they will work to your wish list but can then make suggestions of how you can save if needed to keep the style and quality within your budget.
You’ll view a 3D picture of your kitchen at the start of your appointment with the initial design idea. From there the designer will take your thoughts and begin to incorporate them.
You’ll be taken around the showroom to view different storage solutions, appliance options and all the other accessories like sinks & taps you’ll want to consider for your kitchen.
By the end of your appointment, you’ll have a complete idea of how your kitchen will look and which appliances will make your kitchen work perfectly for you.
The designer will then make sure all changes from the appointment are included in the design and update the price breakdown which will be provided to you via email soon after the appointment. You can update and alter the design as many times as you require to create the perfect look for you.
