Our Kitchen Design Process – 6 Steps to Your Perfect Kitchen

For 25 years we have designed and installed hundreds of kitchens and using this experience, we have developed a 6 step kitchen design process which we believe will make the fulfilment of your kitchen dream as simple and stress-free as possible. A new kitchen is a major investment and will usually only need replacing every 15-20 years. This may mean that you only change your kitchen once or twice in your whole life! For this reason, we feel that the design of a kitchen is a very important. No two kitchens or customers are the same, so we aim to make your kitchen as individual as you would like it to be.


1. Book a free home consultation with a designer.

This will usually take 1 – 2 hours, during which the room will be accurately measured and you will be helped to produce a ‘wish list’ for your new kitchen. Possible budgets will also be discussed along with ideas that inspire you. We will also answer any questions that you may have.

2. Visit the showroom to make your design choices or we will come to your home with a selection of catalogues and samples.

At this point you will be shown a selection of door samples for you to choose from. You will also consider your appliances, work top materials, accessories etc. Steps 1 and 2 can happen in either order. If the property is a new build house then measurements can be taken off plans and checked on site before ordering.

3. Plans and quotation are prepared.

Having made your design choices we will design your kitchen using a Computer Aided Design package. We will take all of your needs into consideration to produce a ‘first draft’ of your kitchen. We will also produce a quotation of the costs of the project.

4. Consultation.

This is the area which we believe sets us apart from other kitchen design companies. Having produced a first draft of the design, we will sit down with you, talk through the design, and make any alterations with you present. Our very sophisticated CAD software lets you instantly see what effect your alterations will have on the kitchen. We don´t mind how many changes you make or how long it takes – it has to be right for you!

5. Custom Manufacture

Having made any changes to the design for your kitchen, we will order the many components needed to create the reality. Every kitchen we sell is made to order and delivery times range from 3 – 10 weeks depending on the supplier.

6. Installation

Our own fitters are experienced subcontractors who know the products well and will be happy to fit your new kitchen for you. Most have worked for us for a number of years and are well trusted by us. We are, however, happy to simply supply the kitchen so you can install it yourself and are always on hand to offer advice if needed.
