From Old Kitchen to New Kitchen and Everything in between.
Thursday 31 January
Having a new kitchen is not a quick, 5 minute job – it’s a big deal! But the results are fabulous and often completely change how people live in their homes; for the better.
When people first get in touch with us either by telephone, our website or by popping into the showroom one of the first questions they ask is what does the design service involve?
There is no straight forward answer to this really as every customer, kitchen and requirements are different, some people have very definite ideas about what they want and others aren’t so sure and are more open to ideas and suggestions from our design team. However, in general the following explains the process and will hopefully give you a good understanding of what is involved.
After a customer has visited our showroom we then arrange to go out to their home to see the current kitchen space, get an understanding of what the customer likes about their old kitchen, how the layout works for them, what doesn’t work or they would like to improve and what ideas they have for the new kitchen. We will also take some photographs and measurements so we can begin the design process. We also work from plans/architects drawings if the kitchen is for a new build house or an extension.
Back in the showroom the design process begins with a scale plan of the kitchen being drawn up in our design software, the designer’s layout the room with units and appliances and produce a rendered image. The rendered image includes colours, doors, worktops, door handles, basically all the details to produced the 3D computer visuals to give you a realistic view of what the kitchen will look like.
Nothing is set in stone at this point and changes can be made, colours, details etc. Designs can be updated and changed and new visuals produced. Along with the plan drawings and the 3D computer visuals we will give you a fully itemised quote. Once a deposit has been paid your kitchen will go into production.
Below are photographs of the customer’s new kitchen – what a difference!
The new kitchen is a Second Nature Remo Gloss, white kitchen. The new design seamlessly connects the kitchen space to the conservatory and dining space by creating an entertaining space with built in wine cooler and lots of extra units for storage.
Bespoke depth units have been built to make the most of slim line spaces. Coloured glass and lighting make the white gloss stand out and keep the space homely.
