The kitchen has evolved from its predeceasing design of an enclosed room which only the mother of the home utilised. In this day and age it has been transformed to being the heart of the home. It’s a place where the entire family gathers and a space where everyone can get involved in. Along with bathrooms and outdoor living spaces, the kitchen is at the top of the list when it comes to resale value. So if you invest wisely in this space you will see it’s return not only in the transformed lifestyle it will provide you but also at the time should you sell your home down the track.If your current kitchen is lacking in providing you ample workspace, ease of flow when working and functional storage systems then this is the package for you.
Not only will you be receiving the best in designs but you’ll also have access to the latest products and finishes on the market. As part of this set design package it is inclusive of the following;
In our first meeting wewill come out to your home- if renovating, if you'rebuilding a new home we'll meet over coffee. Here we’ll document and measure the areas that can be worked with. This first meeting is all about usfinding out exactly what you are looking for. Your brief is an important starting point. In saying that, you by no means need to know every single detail but if you’ve seen things that you like or have photographs this is the best time to share them. We will discuss your budget and also time frame considerations.
In our second meeting this is where the fun begins. Between our first meeting and now we will have been busily creating some designs for you. You will be shown 2-3 floorplan layouts which will show you your potential options and the possibilities of what direction we can head in. Sometimes clients fall in love with one particular design straight away. Other times they may like elements out of one or two of them so collaboratively we’ll work towards getting a final design that meets your requirements. Once a design is finalised it will be drawn to scale using CAD. You will receive an A3 copy of a floorplan, lightingplan, elevations and any relevant detail drawings at our next meeting.
*Should your project require council, building or development approval a price for additional drawings and application fees will be given, all dependent on the complexity of the project. This will be discussed with you at the time required before submitting applications.
Now that we’ve finalised the floorplan of your home it’s time for us to start adding in the detail. Between our last meeting and now we will have drawn up all of your internal room elevations. This meeting gives us time to go through each room and see your home come to life. We’ve now designed all of the custom joinery, you’ll see exactly where each pair of shoes in your robe, cutlery trays in your kitchen and towels in your bathroom are going to be located. This will give you a greater understanding as to the overall design we’re heading towards.
