Backed by the highest craftsmanship from our experienced cabinet makers and the personal service that is the hallmark of our family company, Valley Kitchens is with you every step of the way on your journey to a new custom kitchen – from design to installation.
From the minute you step into our selection studio, you’re in expert hands. After all, the kitchen is the hub of your home, and is quite often the showpiece of a larger, open-plan area, so you want it to be perfect!
Our design team can help you create welcoming spaces that turn hard-working kitchens into rooms where everyone wants to gather and relax.
But we also know you don’t just want your kitchen to look good – it has to function in a way that suits your lifestyle as well. Practical storage is a must, as is clever layout and low maintenance design to keep kitchens looking good without hours of upkeep.
You’ll also be allocated a project manager, who will coordinate the design, construction and installation stages of your kitchen. Valley Kitchens takes all the stress out of the process so all you have to do is enjoy!
Here’s how we work with you:
First things first – initial design appointment
Once you’ve made your initial enquiry, either by phone or a visit to our Kitchen Design Studio, we’ll book an appointment for your first design consultation. Our designers can come to you, but it usually works best in our studio so we can guide you through our display kitchens and show you our different products, finishes and colour ranges.
It’s at this consultation we encourage you to bring along any photographs or visual ideas you have, so we can truly understand the style and look you want to achieve in your kitchen. We’d also like to see your plans of the room – or of your house, if you’re building from scratch.
Our designers will talk to you about how you want your kitchen to function and ask questions so we can pin down the way your kitchen needs to function to suit your lifestyle. What stage is your family at? Will there be a rush of people using the space at busy times, like breakfast and dinner? Do you entertain a lot?
All of these questions help our design team when it comes to designing the perfect space for your home.
Design and Quote
So, all the hard work and decision making is done! Once you are happy with your Valley Kitchens design and quote and you would like to proceed with your kitchen purchase, we will prepare your contracts for signing and go through the finer details of your job to ensure everything is perfect with your colour and finish selections.
It’s at this stage you’ll be required to pay a 10% deposit on the total cost of your kitchen.
Made to measure
The next step is the site measure. This is when we’ll come to your site and check measurements and dimensions so when you are ready to make your final choices we have accurate representations of the space to ensure everything you select for your kitchen will function smoothly.
Following the site measure, our production team will create your final plans for your new kitchen ready to send to our CNC machine for production.
This will also produce a set of drawings to assist our install team and tradesman and can be sent to you upon request.
Construction and installation
This is when it all gets exciting!
All of our kitchens are custom-made in our local workshop using leading-edge technology combined with the timeless art of expert craftsmanship.
When your joinery is built, our team of qualified tradesmen will come to your home to install your kitchen and complete plumbing, electrical and any other requirements.
Following installation, we’ll do a thorough check before final sign-off.
And that’s it!
We’re looking forward to working with you – you’ll love the difference.
