What is the process to getting a new kitchen on the IOM?

What do I need to consider when buying a new kitchen?

Do not worry, we will talk you through everything at our discovery meeting.

What is a discovery meeting?

A discovery meeting is the first part of the exciting journey to your new kitchen. We will make arrangements with you to meet at a mutually convenient time at our showroom. We will talk you through the process involved and how we break it down to manageable “bite size chunks”.

We will also how you around and demonstrate our displays, talk through the types of doors, worktops, appliances and storage options that you can consider, so that you fully understand what we have to offer.

We will then sit down over a tea or coffee and talk about what you want to include and don’t want to include in your new kitchen. This allows us to develop your brief which provides a solid footing for us to commence design. If you have architect plans of the property it is advisable to bring these with you.

Do you offer free design and quotations for our new kitchen?

Our design and quotation service is free of charge and takes place after our “discovery meeting” within the showroom. We use the latest state of the art computer design software so you can visualise and walk through your new dream living space. Should you require plans before you are ready to proceed with your order, we may charge a “release fee” so you can have your drawings. This fee will be credited towards your deposit.

Do you do installation?

We offer a full installation service using our own employed and highly skilled and experienced installers.

Can you arrange associated building work?

A kitchen project will generally involve a lot more than simply removing the old kitchen and fitting a new. Projects can involve structural and building work, plastering, electrics, plumbing, decorating and more. Using our extensive knowledge and experience in the building industry, we offer a full project management service – you could say ‘one call does it all’!
