Having been designing kitchens and bedrooms for over 35 years Tony Parkin has extensive knowledge of the industry.
From a budget £4-5K kitchen up to a £30-35K all singing and dancing kitchen he can deliver. He will design with the best materials that are available. All units are factory built and feature German soft close hinges and drawers and can be tailor made at less than DIY shed units. He knows 90% of clients don’t really know what they want but with his tried and tested method of listening to what the basic requirements are, ie. what type of oven range or built-in oven & hob, builds a layer upon layer design to the finished requirements. Sometimes it is what a client doesn’t like as well as does that formulates his design. He recalls going to measure the biggest kitchen he has ever designed measuring 8.5m x 8.0m, the only thing that the client wanted was a powder blue Range cooker, the rest was the trusted formula. You will see the empty room and finished project in our Kitchens section (In-Frame Solid Oak). Tony despises sales gimmicks. He once had a January Magnet quotation to look at. This unit has been priced at £24,995 less 60% = £9998. He priced up with no discount at £6200 and supplied with rose quartz for £3500 which was still cheaper than sale price. Tony says a kitchen is the biggest purchase anybody will make for their home. You only do it once. So get it right no matter how much your spending.
We start with
1. a home measure or
2. New Build or Extention an architect’s plan.
The tried and tested formula leads on to a scale line drawing – once this layout and costings has been agreed an initial (200) deposit is paid (fully refundable). From the graph drawings we will produce a 3D CAD drawing. On final agreement the deposit will be brought up to 20%. We will then put into our production fitting slot this can be upto 6 months.
Once the final 20% is paid this price is fixed.
