It ensures the design works with your home and to your needs & lifestyle without any compromise.
Getting To Know You
The secret to any great relationship is a sound understanding of each other. Getting to know you and your family is first and foremost and our design consultation will help us gain a better understanding of the vision you have for your dream kitchen.
Our professional team will assess your needs and lifestyle to best determine the type of kitchen you can build.
We find this is a great way to build confidence and trust, the foundations of any great partnership.
Kitchen Design Consultation
Now that we have a clear understanding of your kitchen usage, lifestyle, and the vision you have for your kitchen, it is time to start designing!
Our Estimator/ Designer will visit your house and listen to your wish list, guide you through the practical design consultation and work with you to create your perfect design layout to suit your needs for your dream kitchen.
The Quotation + 3D Plans
Next stage, our Estimator / Designer will prepare your itemised quotation.
At this stage we also prepare 3D plans for you to visualise your kitchen before it goes into manufacturing, it also allows you to discuss the design with your family.
Once complete, we email your quotation and 3D plans, then follow up with you, should you have any questions.
Acceptance On Quotation
Once received, you may wish to make alterations to ensure the plans align with your ideas. Once you are happy with them, the next stage is acceptance of your quotation by paying a 10% deposit.
You can feel confident that our entire team is working together with the same vision in mind. Our Estimator/Designer then issues final plans and specification with your finishing choices.
Upon receiving your approval on the plans, specifications and the next progress payment we then go into manufacturing at our factory at kings park.
The Manufacture of Kitchen
It is time to start manufacturing your new kitchen. We process your entire job via computer then send it down to the latest CNC machine. The CNC machine takes digitized data from a computer to control, automate, and monitor the movements of the CNC machine. The automated nature of CNC machining works laser guided which enables the production of high precision and high accuracy. Our qualified team of joiners then knock up your custom-made cabinetry to the design of your approved plans. We only use the highest quality of Australian made products. Depending on the type of cabinetry of your dream kitchen, this process can take between 4 – 6 weeks. A further progress payment is required one week prior to installation. You are advised at each stage and informed of your installation day/s.
Installation Of Your Dream Kitchen
The exciting day has arrived to install your dream kitchen. The rip out of your existing old kitchen and finishing up your new kitchen can take between 8-9 days. We manage the whole process by managing different trades for you, once the new kitchen is fully installed, then our stonemason measures the benchtop and splashback, usually one week later the stone will be installed, trades then follow to fit off. Once all trades have completed their work you are ready to enjoy your new dream kitchen.
Outlining our process up-front means we can both ensure deadlines are met, avoiding unnecessary delays and additional costs.
