The following information has been prepared to explain the steps involved with the Creartt kitchen design, manufacture and installation process.
STEP 1 - INITIAL CONSULTATION
On the first meeting we will discuss your initial ideas and collaborate together to establish a balance between your wants, needs and what works best with the space you have available.
The other important aspect of a new kitchen or any construction project is to look at forecasting a reasonable budget based on your initial requirements.
In order to give you the best value for money, it is important to specify a budget amount. We understand that the kitchen construction market is very competitive and we aim to deliver the best custom product for a fixed contract price.
If we know your budget up front, we can design a kitchen packed with as many features and quality products as possible to suit your specified budget. All we ask is that you compare the full details of our package with any competitor’s quotation and make sure that you are making an accurate comparison. We aim for a quality product and exceptional service within a reasonable price.
STEP 2 – PROJECT ESTIMATE
Although it is important to establish a functioning design first and foremost, it would be unrealistic to pretend that the cost of the design does not influence the final outcome.
All sketches, notes of communication and ideas from the initial consultation will be sufficient to establish a project estimate figure which will give you a very good indication of the direction that the project is going and if it is within your pre-specified budget. This is a free service.
Having a project estimate up front will give you a basic idea of the value of your project and a reference point for any alterations that you may make in the future and how those changes can influence the final price.
The project estimate will include details of the project and a startup deposit amount. This will be sent to you in writing (usually via email) for your written approval.
STEP 3 - FEE STRUCTURE
If you are happy with the project estimate and the startup deposit amount, you can then pay the account so that the design work can begin.
On receipt of your startup deposit and before any works are started or your contract is signed, a comprehensive building inspection and measurement is carried out by a qualified supervisor.
STEP 4 - CHECK MEASURE
Soon after the contract is signed we will contact you to organize a time to inspect your current kitchen and confirm final details and measurements. At this stage we will also establish a project timeline which will specify the order in which all of the relevant trades and processes will be completed.
STEP 5 - DESIGN REVIEW
During this meeting you will be shown the concept design that has been created from the previous stages of the design process.
STEP 6 - PREPARATION AND HAND OVER
Before work commences, we have a final meeting with you to ensure that all details of the kitchen project and any special considerations you may have are discussed and completely understood.
We are fanatical about understanding your expectations because this is how we consistently delight our clients. When you hand over your property to the Creartt Design Team, you can be sure you are in good hands. We will lay industrial protective coverings over all of your important possessions and treat your home with the care it deserves.
STEP 7 - KITCHEN WORKS
Once your new products are delivered to your home and the kitchen area has been prepared for building works, the construction and installation process will commence. You will be kept up to date on a daily basis with the progress of your kitchen project.
STEP 8 – PROJECT COMPLETION
Once the kitchen project has been completed, we will ask you to finalise all accounts and complete a feedback form evaluating our service. We will also explain what is covered by warranty and provide instruction manuals or documentation related to devices that have been installed. We hope that your experience will have been so wonderful that you will happily refer us on to your friends, family and neighbours!
