Yes, there are always benefits in doing multiple rooms at the same time. These are both financial and convenience benefits. Obviously, the more you spend with us, the more we can make our price attractive. All savings achieved would be passed on to you.
There are many kitchen showrooms in Sydney. Most of them do very good work but of varying standards. You will need to visit some of the showrooms in your local area. You should visit at least three showrooms. Look at the quality in the showroom. The staff attending the showroom may provide you with some indication as to how the business is managed. When you are satisfied with the quality of the work and the showroom staff, ask for a designer to meet with you for a brief.
It is recommended that you visit at least three showrooms in order to form a definite feel of what you want and which company is best suited to your requirements.
A kitchen or bathroom renovation can be very expensive and disruptive. A professional joinery company design representative will guide you through the process. Depending on the complexity of your project, you may be without a functioning kitchen for some weeks. You should arrange for storage of all your kitchen goods, arrange for some temporary cooking and washing facility, (a laundry perhaps?). Again, a high quality and professional kitchen company should provide you with floor coverings to protect your floors. If not, you will need to think about floor and furniture protection. Pets can become very nervous with all the action happening around the house. You may need to think about this as well.
Depending on the style and complexity of your project, a renovation may take between 8 to 10 weeks. This does not include the time for design and finalization of your plans.
From the start of the renovation until the reconnection of your services will be around 2 to 4 weeks. This is called “Practical” Completion. But you will need to allow more time, (around 3 – 4 weeks), until the project is totally completed. There are some exceptions to this, for example, if you are doing some of the trades, or arranging for your own stone benchtop installation. If these are not under the control of the kitchen company, then delays may be incurred. This also can happen with timber floors which may need to be installed before the cabinets.
We offer a 7 year statutory plus 5 years of extended warranty on all cabinets and joinery. Some of our hardware, like hinges and drawers are covered for life by the manufacturer.
Kitchen and bathroom renovations are complex building projects. As well as design, accurate measurements, and high quality build, you need to ensure that the company employs competent trades for the installation. Even a high quality constructed kitchen or bathroom can be poorly installed. You need to ensure, therefore, that the company you select to do your joinery employs competent people and has the reputation for quality to ensure that, should problems arise, they will be dealt with efficiently, promptly and, at no cost to you.
We have been designing kitchens for Sydney residents for 41 years. We have accumulated a vast design repertoire. Our designers go out of their way to listen to you, talk you through the many options and help you to finalize the best design that suits your home, whatever style or age.
Often, the most challenging designs are the smaller spaces. This is where design becomes crucial. Our designers will work with you to identify all of your needs and to help you maximize your space, however limited that may be.
All factors are significant. Children are an important part of the family and should be considered, perhaps even consulted.
We specialize in apartment renovations. These require special skills. There may be strata rules to consider, lift access, special parking and rubbish handling requirements and, of course, courtesy to your neighbours must be always considered.
