Your kitchen is probably the most important room in your house. You and your family will spend most of your time in a kitchen – living area. You will want to create the mood, get the ingredients right, make sure there is a flow for people to move around, room to prepare and space to dine, drink and dance.
KITCHEN CONSULTATION – €500*
You can of course design your kitchen yourself but to avoid making costly mistakes we suggest you avail of our expert kitchen design service. Our designers will help you choose the perfect kitchen and one that suits your lifestyle. We will think about how you will use it, when you will use it and who will be using it. If you are a reluctant gourmet or budding chef, or have a hungry family of four or convivial host to entertain, you will need your design to reflect these different requirements. During our initial design consultation we will discover your vital cabinet and appliance requirements.
OUR KITCHEN CONSULTATION FEE INCLUDES:
Thirty minutes initial consultation to fill out our briefing document to establish your exact requirements. During this time you will run through all your wants, needs and wishes and we can start talking through some initial ideas. You’ll need to bring along any room dimensions to this appointment or an architect’s plan if you’re doing an extension. We allocate two hours of design work to draw up your perfect design. One hour follow up consultation where we will present you with plan, elevations and 3D visuals of your kitchen design. Any amendments you require will be made during this consultation. Once your order for a kitchen is placed we will provide you with drawings for all suggested mechanical and electrical requirements.From there the full design process begins to unfurl. There are quite a few steps but here’s an overview so you have an idea of what to expect.
THE FULL DESIGN PROCESS
First you decide which Kitchen Collection suits you best. Every one is unique so its important to take time looking at these options. Every collection has a different design journey.
If you’re happy with your initial consultation you can now move on to the full design service. This is when your designer will draw up formal plans of your new kitchen’s layout and will visit your home to fully understand the space, lighting and any specific requirements (such as awkward angles that will require some imagination). Again, if you’re having an extension, your designer will still come to visit the site to discuss the project in person with yourself and the architect.
Once you’re more than happy with your kitchen design, we ask for a 20% deposit. We’ll then work on finalised drawings, filled with every bit of detail we can to help you plan everything from electrics to plumbing. You’ll then sign off these final drawings and we’ll provide you with an estimated delivery date.
YOUR VERY OWN DESIGNER
Our kitchen designers work with you on a one-to-one basis. They’ll be your key point of contact throughout the entire design process. You’ll work together. They are there to guide, advise, listen and insport, but we love you to be involved in the design process also. Your designer will want to hear all of your thoughts from cabinet colour to learning the things you’ve always wanted in your kitchen. It’s very much a collaboration.
