HOW MUCH WILL MY KITCHEN COST?
This depends on your personal preference. Every kitchen is different and as a result pricing is calculated on your individual requirements.
The pricing is based on the overall size, desired kitchen range and type of material. Additional costs for fitting and installation need to be considered before calculating the final costs. We will break down the key components of your kitchen project so you have clear idea of what everything costs.
If you have an idea of how much you want to spend, our designers will help and assist you with ideas to create your dream kitchen suitable for your budget.
HOW WILL MY KITCHEN ARRIVE?
Prior to delivery, you will be asked to confirm if there are any restrictions that might affect your delivery, such as the width of your road, or any parking restrictions.
You will need to bear in mind that your kitchen units will need to be stored somewhere for the period between delivery and installation and can take up a considerable amount of space. Please note, if you have ordered specific appliances, these need to arrive before installation start, for installers need to make sure that all provision for appliances are correct.
HOW LONG WILL THE INSTALLATION PROCESS TAKE?
Just like the pricing, the installation process and completion time is dependent on a number of factors including the size of your kitchen and the complexity of your design.. All this can take more time than a simple furniture installation only. Solid worktops, such as Granite or Corian will also add time to the installation, due to the templating and fabrication.
Please be aware that as with all types of building work carried out in the home, you will experience some disruption whilst your kitchen is being installed and we recommend that you try to make alternative kitchen arrangements where possible and we do our best to complete the work and leave your new kitchen tidy and ready for use as quickly as possible.

10 KITCHEN RENOVATION TIPS
Renovating your kitchen will add ease to your lifestyle and value to your home. Here are the 10 most important things to consider when you're updating your kitchen.
1. Use quality materials - Quality drawer slides and hinges mean cabinet doors will stay closed and drawers won't stick. If you are planning a kitchen renovation, or a new installation, take a look at Blum fittings for your new kitchen.
2. Determine cabinet heights - If you have two-metre ceilings, choose cabinets that go to the ceiling. They offer more storage, enabling you to use extra wall space for even more storage or open shelves.
3. Decide whether to paint or stain
- Though stained-wood cabinetry is forgiving, most finishes date quickly and aren't easily altered. Brush-painted cabinets can lend a unique personality.
4. Select an elegant countertop - PG Bison offer a wide range of Formica LifeSeal Worktops finishes that add functional style to any kitchen style. Surrino solid surfaces provide a spectrum of tones and shades, blending and texture to create a three-dimensional product. CaesarStone manufactures natural high-tech quartz surfaces that offer ideal solutions for kitchen countertops.
5. Install an island that works - Beware of placing a bulky cube in the middle of the room. We like islands that have an open, airy look. Ideally, an island should be unencumbered by appliances, but if you want it to house a dishwasher-sink combo or a cooktop, try to maintain the light look of a leggy harvest table.
6. Don't overdo the details - Design accents such as pediments over stoves and plaster mouldings on cabinet fronts can represent decorative excess and easily become outdated. Remember that the style of your kitchen should be compatible with the rest of your home.
7. Avoid maintenance nightmares - Natural surfaces with inherent texture - slate, terra-cotta, brick and tumbled marble - are more difficult to clean but camouflage the odd crumb. Smooth surfaces in light colours, such as white Formica LifeSeal Worktops or ceramic floors, are easy to clean but show everything. And as much as we love stainless steel, it's not easy to keep smudge-free.
8. Stick to basic appliances - Instead of lots of appliances and gadgets, consider selecting a few reliable basics. For example, a commercial-quality stainless-steel range makes an interesting focal point and takes up less space than separate wall ovens and a cooktop.
9. Plan for plenty of lighting - As the room where a multitude of chores take place, there should be sufficient lighting to accommodate individual tasks throughout the room. A central ceiling fixture will provide adequate general lighting but don't forget about downlighting for particular areas such as, over the preparation area, above the wash area, around the cooking area, and over a breakfast or kitchen island.
10. Add interest - Your kitchen should reflect your personality - not look like a showroom. Before designing the space, search for a piece of unique furniture or accessory and use it as inspiration when planning your design - a room full of floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall kitchen cabinets looks boring and uninspired.
