Project Managed Installations
With our truly personal approach and wealth of knowledge and experience using our own employed installations team we are here to guide you every step of the way, doing everything we can to ensure that the process is as comprehensive, professional and stress free as possible and that you are delighted with the finished result.
The stages of your project journey…
1. Visit our Showroom
We would be delighted to welcome you into our Southampton kitchen showroom. There’s no need to make an appointment so do come and browse, get to know us and chat through your wishes and ideas. This will give you an opportunity to browse the room-set displays showing some of the latest kitchen styles for both contemporary and traditional tastes, peruse the huge array of door, worktop, tiling and flooring samples throughout the showroom and experience some of the latest appliances and innovative accessories.
One of our designers is usually on hand to answer your questions and give you some advice and guidance with all aspects of your potential new room.
2. Design and Quotation
Our free design consultation is carried out in the showroom with one of our designers. You will need to bring your room measurements or building plans. Our designer will discuss your project concepts in detail with you, maybe sketching a few initial design ideas, discussing the pros and cons of different options and advising on features, practicalities and colour ways. Over the following few days your designer will then draw up a quotation covering the points of your discussion and invite you back into the showroom to discuss this with you.
Full Survey and Design Service
Alternatively, our full survey and design service starts in your home. This is a fully comprehensive design survey, not simply taking a few measurements but also assessing plumbing, electrics, structural factors, room flow, natural light and anything else that may have an impact on the design and installation of your new kitchen. There will be lots of discussion about how you intend to use the space, your likes and dislikes and the possibilities available to you. Back in the design office your designer will create your design, prepare 3D illustrations using some of the most up to date CAD technology and a detailed quotation. The design will be presented to you in the showroom where the samples and displays are easily on hand to support the discussions.
Following the presentation and discussion of your design and quotation it is not unusual for there to be a few things you would wish to change or maybe explore different cost options. Your designer is happy to work with you to finalise those details and once you are happy we will go through the final choices and discuss an installation schedule.
3. Full Project Installation
Using the expertise of our own employed fitters means that we can assure you of the consistent high standards of workmanship and professionalism that we are known for. Our complete installation service routinely covers: Removal of the old fitted items, fitting of units, appliances, worktops and accessories, plumbing work for water, gas and boilers, electrics, tiling, plastering and floor laying. We also regularly carryout small building works such as removing internal walls.
In contrast to many other kitchen companies all furniture and accessories are delivered directly to us and we only bring your new furniture and appliances to site on the first day of installation, so there’s no need for you to clear your garage or a spare room (and your diary) to accommodate deliveries over the days or weeks prior to installation.
On the first day of installation your designer will be there alongside the fitters. If you have requested for us to remove the existing kitchen then that is where we will begin! With decades of experience behind them and a close working relationship with the team back in the design office we then let our fitters get on with the job. Your designer will pop in regularly throughout the fit to check all is going well. As a part of our full project management service, we arrange for all other specialist trades – electricians, plasters, tilers etc to turn up when needed in the schedule.
4. Completion sign-off and Guarantees
Once the project is complete your designer will come and visit you to check for any snagging, answer any questions you have on points such as general cleaning and maintenance and basic appliance instructions and hopefully take some photographs of your beautiful finished project to display on our website!
We pride ourselves on working only with manufactures that provide extensive guarantees and exceptional aftercare services and, with our own comprehensive workmanship guarantees for installation and the traditional values that come with a long-standing small family business, you can rest assured that if problems do occur we will be here to help and support you post installation.
Supply Only Kitchens Service
If you have your own fitter in mind, you are a fitter yourself our just love what we do but are outside of our fitting area then please talk to us about our supply only offering which includes our bespoke design service.
To date we have supplied kitchens as far a field as Scotland and the French alps.
From receiving the Schedule of Works everything was seemless and the operatives and contractors were exceptional and their support and quality of work gave me a stunning kitchen. Everyone over the Festivities this Christmas whave commented WOW…
what a brilliant decision I made in walking into your showroom. From the courteous manner of the Staff to the professional way that Darren, Paul and the other members of the crew literally transformed a tired 10-yr old kitchen into the wonderful room it is now.
