THE PROCESS - DESIGNING & FITTING YOUR KITCHEN
Designing your kitchen is an exciting process!
We will work closely with you throughout the entire project to ensure your kitchen works perfectly for your lifestyle.
Below we have outlined how we work with our clients, but you can always give us a ring to chat through your project.

Planning your Kitchen
In your initial consultation we will go through what you would like in the kitchen and your options for materials and finishes, we can do this over the phone/email or in our showroom in Newcastle Emlyn.
Then we will make an appointment to come out and measure your space to enable us to design your kitchen.
If you have a simple kitchen layout and are just replacing your existing units, then it shouldn’t take too long.
However, if you’re looking to change the layout of your kitchen or add new features, it may take longer to detail what you need.
We often go back and forth with our clients until everyone is happy with the design and quote.
We provide 3D rendered visuals, so you will get a good idea of how your new kitchen will look when installed.
Ordering and Delivery
Once you are happy with everything and have paid the initial deposit your kitchen will be made and delivered.
We require 50% deposit payment upon order.
(Our Sheraton and Chippendale kitchen customers are automatically enrolled in our major partners Omega PLC deposit guarantee scheme meaning your money is always safe.)
The balance payments we will discuss and agree with you at the time of ordering.
All major credit cards
We can also put you in touch with a finance company if you would like to set up a monthly payment finance agreement to pay for your kitchen.
Most of our kitchens can be delivered in 2-4 weeks and we will be able to confirm the delivery timeframe when you place your order.
Removal and First Fix
The first job is to remove your old kitchen; if we’re simply taking out the old fittings then this should only take a few hours, all works of this nature will be discussed and agreed at the quotation stage.
Remember that if you have extra work that needs doing before starting to fit your kitchen, such as knocking down walls, this will add time onto the job. If you would like us to undertake either the capping off, removal and/or installation of water end electrical services then we would be happy to discuss and agree this with you, again preferably at quotation stage.
Fitting your Kitchen
Now all the groundwork is complete, your kitchen should take shape quite quickly!
The cabinets and worktops will be fitted first, followed by the sink and hob. The majority of the kitchen should be completed in 3-5 days, depending on its size; it will of course take less time to fit a small kitchen.
If you’ve chosen solid worktops such as granite or Silestone, these will have to be templated to ensure they fit perfectly. Templating and fitting your countertops will take around 10 days.
Templating has to happen on site after all units have been installed to achieve complete accuracy, so this will lengthen the time needed to fit your kitchen. However, we can provide some makeshift countertops while yours are being prepared.
Once all your kitchen units and countertops have been installed all that is left to take care of are the details like plinths, skirting boards, splashbacks and any tiling and redecorating. Again we will go through all of this with you at the quotation stage.
