Kitchen design at its best

From start to finish we'll work closely with you to design, manufacture and install the kitchen of your dreams. 

Give us a call and we'll come round to your property to measure up and discuss your requirements before producing detailed computer designs and plans for you to look at.

Once you're happy with the design, we'll prepare a quote for your consideration, before, writing up a contract and specification sheets detailing colours, appliances and any special requests. 

Depending on the materials chosen and the size of project , it will take between three and six weeks to custom-build your cabinetry in-house. We'll then agree a date for installation, which will usually take one or two days.


Kitchen remodelling

Every house has a character/era in which they were built.

In the early 1900's, houses didn't have kitchens in the way we do today. In the 21st century it would be hard to live in a house without the type of kitchen we've become accustomed to - but we can create a character kitchen that 'fits'.

For example, the use of natural stone benchtops can give an older-style look, when coupled with fancy patterned doors that are in keeping with the colonial mouldings and doors already in situ.

In the 1960s a lot of standard housing had small galley style kitchens. This type of house gives you the option of a simple re-vamp or removing dividing walls to create a new open-plan kitchen - we are happy to advise you!

A modern kitchen for newer homes will typically have very clean lines, square edges and big appliances. You're limited only by space and budget.


Top 10 kitchen tips 

1. Know what your budget is. It's easy to over-design your kitchen so it gets too expensive. Kitchen Draw can manufacture kitchens to suit all budgets, low and high.

2. Two-way communication is vital! Your views are important as you'll be using the kitchen every day. But we've designed hundreds of kitchens so we know where the pitfalls are likely to be. Let's talk and listen to each other.

3. When comparing prices for custom-designed kitchens versus a flat pack, don’t forget to allow for panels, fillers, toe spaces etc.. R
emember too that the flat pack will usually need assembly and benchtops will need cutting and joining.

4. Let us know who and how many people live in the house. Quality and durability of materials is important.

5. Putting an expensive kitchen in a low-cost house isn't a great idea. Nor is installing a low-cost kitchen in an high-spec house.

6. Replacing benchtops on an old kitchen can be like putting new mags and paint on a second-hand car. 

7.  The 'working area' of fridge, cook top and sink is the hub of your kitchen. Make this space a practical size.

8. The fridge is the most used appliance in your house and should therefore be the most accessible.

9. Try to avoid having a dishwasher in your working area. You'll find it really frustrating if someone wants to load or unload the dishwasher while you're working there.

10. Don't put your dishwasher a long way from where you'll be storing your crockery.
