FAQs Kitchen, Bathroom & Bedroom Design Projects
Do you replace just the kitchen worktops and doors?
From experience, once the doors and worktops have been removed the carcasses have also degraded. The doors are around 80% of a cabinets cost, so the difference in replacing it all, against just parts is harder to justify. If you are selling your home with new workstops and doors, it won't be seen as a new kitchen and this could be seen as a wasted return. We have solutions which will make full replacements more beneficial.
How long will an installation take for a new kitchen & bathroom?
For a kitchen installation, including electrics, lighting, tiling, up to decoration, it will take approx three weeks. We endeavour to keep the kitchen sink, oven and washer available for as long as we can, before we swap to the new fittings. On bathrooms a full installation can be two weeks, and three weeks for larger more complex rooms.
Would I expect to see the project manager onsite every day?
Yes, not only do I enjoy the installation stage, but it also allows me to ensure its done correctly. Every appliance, cabinet and bathroom suite needs inspecting before installation. My hands on approach with our team is as important to me as to the client.
What are the payment terms?
We ask for a 20% deposit, 50% of the remainder for works to commence, the remainder on completion unless a long time scale requires some part payments. Its important that clients don’t feel we have all their money and they have nothing to show for it. It's about building confidence with the client.
Do you do everything for a kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom Installation
Yes, we will project manage every trade, all deliveries and give you one point of contact. We will unlock, lockup and even feed the cat if required. After a project has been signed off, we think the client should be able to carry on without the worry that they will need to be home to answer questions every two minutes.
Do you have past clients I can speak to about how you work?
Yes, we are lucky to have a long list of clients happy to endorse what we do. I ask all new clients to speak to our past clients, so they gain confidence in what we are promising. I find it hard to understand how some people pay deposits, sign off quotes, without checking who is coming to their house and how good they are.
What areas do you cover?
The areas we cover include Windsor, Ascot, Bracknell, Sunningdale, Chobham, Crowthorne, Wokingham, Eversley, Arborfield, Hartley Wintney and Hook.
Can you supply just the kitchen cabinets & appliances?
Yes, we can supply only the kitchen cabinets and appliances for self installation or for another trade two install. We will still provide the design process, drawings and also electrical and plumbing requirements for that space. This is ideal for self build, architects and builders.
How much will a kitchen/bathroom installation cost?
The size of a room will only effect the quality of items like tiles, plastering, lighting. Most rooms, for example a bathroom will still have the basin, loo, bath, shower, it just depends how it's spread out. It's the same for kitchens but much smaller rooms can eat into clever space saving solutions. As a rough guide, I would initially consider a 10-12k budget for a standard bathroom, from here you can spend up to 25K depending on your luxury item list!. On kitchens it's more complicated due to any building works, flooring, electrics and the level of kitchen you choose. We have clients spending from 14k up to 50k, if a large room requires structural building works.
Are you able to provide product samples for kitchens & bathrooms?
We have a full range of samples we can bring to you. By listening to your requirements, we can limit what you need to see to make decisions less complicated. We also use past clients to show kitchens/bathrooms when required. The use of technology also helps in understanding a product.
Bathroom fittings are a little more complicated as there are so many. We install a wide range of designs and can supply brochures and links via websites.
