London Kitchen Installations
Do you live in London and want one of our kitchens but are not sure how it will work? Even though our main workshop and showroom are both based in Bristol we are in London most weeks installing our beautiful Sustainable Kitchens.
We are very used to working on London kitchen designs remotely with our clients to make sure they get exactly what they want out our the design process and their dream kitchen. We use the same installation team to install kitchens in London as elsewhere as they know our cabinetry the best and have years of experience working with us. So how does it all work?
London Kitchen Design Process
There are a few different options to start the design consultation if you live in London:
1. Remote Design Consultation – This can be done over the phone, via Skype or Facetime. We require floor plans and measurements and can remotely ‘walk through’ the space and work on a design for you.
2. Showroom Design Consultation – If you are passing through Bristol shortly we would recommend popping in to see us and we can organise a consultation, we would love you to see our showroom and workshop but understand that it is not always possible.
3. Email Design Consultation – This is possible if you can’t do a call for any reason, as long as we have the measurements, we can work through the layout on a phone call to better understand what you would like to achieve.
When can you have a consultation?
We can accommodate consultations during our normal working hours Monday- Friday, 8.30 am – 5 pm, if it is proving difficult to find time during the day due to other commitments then we can also do evening consultations and Saturday consultations by special request. You can book a consultation by using our appointment system or if those dates don’t work for you then by calling or emailing us directly.
How long do consultations last?
Any consultations done in person can last between 45 minutes to 2 hours so please make sure you have the time to do this, remote consultations by phone will last between 30 mins – 1 hour.
Who will you be having your consultation with?
Meet our full design team by following the link, you will most likely have a consultation with our founder and lead designer, Sam who will share his years of design and technical experience with you in every design.
If you are heading to the showroom, chances are you will meet with our Studio Manager, Lindsay. And behind the scenes, Charlie and Matts will be working on your perfected design. The entire team work on every project together combining all their joint experience and design knowledge so you get the best service.
Book a consultation
If you’d like to start the consultation process then please contact us and we can book your initial consultation.
We require floor plans and measurements and if you have any Pinterest boards or inspirational images, this always helps.
How does the design process work?
After your consultation, we will start the process by sending one design and a quote over to you within 2 weeks of the initial consultation based on the conversations with Sam, the design may include multiple layout options if you aren’t sure so that you can better imagine the space.
We will give you a follow-up call to discuss the designs, answer any questions you may have and book a revisions meeting. We will collate all your feedback from your initial designs and organise a revision meeting to discuss changes to the design.
Designing your dream kitchen is a process, one we don’t expect to get right the first time so we will work through your ideas and changes with you. We usually work on 1 round of revisions before the deposit is paid to ensure we are on the right lines. We offer a free design service but for any work post the first revision, we usually require a deposit. Depending on the value of the project, this will be either £3,000 or £5,000 to continue the design process with us.
We will organise for you to have a final design meeting to discuss all the finer details with your lead designer and our technical team.
The Installation Process of a Kitchen in London
If you are happy with your design project and want to book in then we ask for a £3,000-£5,000 deposit depending on the value of your project.
Then you will receive the following:
a) Additional technical revisions as needed
b) Design meeting to include a technical consultation
c) Full technical support & plans if you need it
d) A dedicated design & technical team to help you through your project
Once the design aesthetic is fully signed off, our technical team will do a full technical consultation and site survey, produce any technical plans that are needed and support the project where needed.
Project planning – Exclusive and personalised service by our skilled technical consultant includes all the necessary pre-installation site visits, full electrical and lighting plans (for kitchen area only), appliance and technology integration, cutting lists, close cooperation with your tradespeople including architects and builders and any technical plans necessary to deliver a completely bespoke project.
Installation – Our highly skilled installation team will fully protect your home before beginning your kitchen installation. They will supervise the template production and final installation of stone worktops and liaise with your tradespeople to complete a timely and tidy installation. This excludes plumbing and electrical connections and any extra work deemed necessary during installation.
Hand painting – Once your kitchen has been fitted our fine furniture painter will delicately add the final coats by hand. Please note that we apply primer, undercoat and one top coat in our workshop spray booth before the kitchen arrives onsite.
These are all services that we provide if you are already working with a builder with whom you trust then they would be able to do the installation. However, we would always advise that we go through the planning process in every kitchen.
