What do I need to do prior to the installation?


Please have the following ready:

  • Disconnect all plumbing and electrics (Plumber and electrician required to disconnect and reconnect)

  • Demolish the old kitchen (if you haven't chosen us to do it for you)

    • After the demolish, sometimes you will need a plasterer and/or painter to touch up the walls. This is not included in the cost of demolish.

  • Have a detailed plan ready (unless we made a plan for you)

  • Sink and oven/hob must be purchased and be ready on the day of cabinetry installation. This is so that we can measure the size for the bench top cutouts. 

  • Make sure someone will be at the property or the key is left in a agreed location

  • Choose bench top colour here

  • Choose handles here

What are your payment terms?

Option 1: 

  • 50% to initiate the order

  • 40% a day prior to the installation

  • Level legs

  • Cabinet assembly, delivery & installation

Are any appliances/installation included?


Unless otherwise stated/agreed, then no, no appliances are included. 


By default, we will not supply: Dishwasher, rangehood, insinkerator, hob, oven etc. 


By default, we also do not instal any of these appliances. 

​Will you purchase a sink for me?


We've found most suppliers have a standard policy that warranty transfers are not permitted. However, we are happy to buy a standard sink on your behalf, but if you want anything more special, please supply it and have it ready on the day of installation. 

​What warranty do you offer?


We offer full 3 year manufacturers warranty on our MDF cabinets (Silver, Gold and Platinum), and 2 years on our flat pack series. Rest assured, your cabinets should last you much, much longer than this! We offer 3 years warranty on our hinges. Our supplier of Formica bench tops offers 30 days warranty. Stone bench tops have 1 year warranty. Warranty is not transferrable. 

​Will you compensate me for any delays?


We will try our utmost to make everything go according to plan, but building & installing a kitchen is actually pretty complex - a lot of things have to come together seamlessly. Most of the time this works out nicely, but unfortunately sometimes unforseen issues arise. Unfortunately we can take no liability nor offer any compensation for delays (e.g. for lost rent). You can rest assured we will do everything in our power to make things right and finish on time!
