What The Process Of Getting A Custom Kitchen Design Looks Like
Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in the house, and they are often where families gather most frequently to share time with each other. It is a very practical room that requires special attention from all sorts of trades, from plumbers to electricians and, of course, cabinet makers. If you want a kitchen that is made specifically with your needs and your floor space in mind, then you need to engage kitchen designers who can help give you a one-of-a-kind and practical kitchen. Here is what ordering a custom kitchen looks like from start to finish.
Incorporating Your Ideas
The first thing you need to know is that when you hire kitchen designers, you don't get left behind in the dust but are included in the design stage of your kitchen. They want to hear your needs and vision, and then they will go off and make those ideas into a practical solution that fits your space and budget. That means they will take what materials you want to use, the amount of storage you need, any specific design elements (such as a kitchen island) and turn it all into a cohesive and quality-looking environment for you and your family to enjoy.
Engaging Cabinet Makers
If your kitchen designers are not cabinet makers themselves, they will have a partnership with a company that they know and trust to do their cabinetry. This is where the backbone of your kitchen will be made, and it is a very precise process. They will likely need to be onsite a fair amount to ensure all the measurements are correct down to the last millimetre. You will also likely be able to go and see what the cabinet makers are doing and how your kitchen is coming along at their warehouse. Depending on how intricate your design is, this process can take a few days to a few weeks.
Installing The Finished Product
After the cabinet makers have completed your designs, the next step is to put everything together. Since your kitchen is custom-made and not mass-manufactured, it requires professionals to put it together properly. Your kitchen designers also likely have partnered with a trusted tradie and know who to use to get great results. This should be done in conjunction with all the other trades that need to be engaged to complete your kitchen, including electricians and plumbers. Depending on if there are any setbacks, this takes generally about a week, and then your kitchen will be ready for you to start cooking!
