Step 1: Measuring The Kitchen Area
Every kitchen reno starts with us visiting our client’s home, measuring their kitchen area and discussing their kitchen design ideas. On this occasion, it was our designer, Ed that visited the Bolitho’s home in Cooparoo on the 23rd of March 2015. Ed remembers the Bolitho’s having the following design ideas:
- White and Black
- Handleless Design
- Stone benchtop
Here are some before pictures of the Bolitho’s kitchen:
Step 2: The Kitchen Design Process
Having met with the Bolitho’s, measured their kitchen space and discussed their kitchen design ideas it was now time for Ed to get on with designing the kitchen:
Ed invited the Bolitho’s to our kitchen showroom in Capalaba at 2/6 Dan Street on the 26th March 2015.
This is the initial design that Ed showed them:
The first design is never final and as expected, the Bolitho’s wanted several changes. This is what the Bolitho’s decided to change:
- The island was important to the Bolitho’s to get right, for the whole family to be able to fit around it. Several changes were made to get this right.
- We also worked together to get the right balance of black and white cabinetry
The Bolitho’s were very happy with their final design and price. They were wanting to proceed to the next stage where a contract is typed up and signed by both parties.
Step 3: The Cabinet Maker Process
Once the client has confirmed the design, paid the deposit and is happy to proceed with ordering their new kitchen (by signing the contract), our Cabinet Maker must come to site to complete a check measure.
The check measure ensures that we have the correct details concerning measurements, colours, materials, tradesmen, etc. The cabinet maker will then confirm his details and cross check the order. Once this is complete he will place the order.
Note this process is subject to the availability of both the client and cabinet maker.
Our kitchen design software syncs with our local manufacturer in Brisbane. So, when the Bolitho’s were happy with their final design we placed the order with our manufacturer on the 8th April 2015. Our manufacturer uses laser technology to cut and assembly the cabinetry and install the hardware (soft close) resulting in high quality cabinets.
Step 4: The Kitchen Installation Process
3 weeks later their new kitchen was complete and sent onsite. We had organised to remove the existing kitchen the day prior to this to ensure our installer could install that day. As planned he completed the kitchen cabinetry within the day.
Our stone mason was notified of the kitchen progress and came onsite to do his template measure. He was able to return to the Bolitho’s in a week to install the final polished stone.
Here are some after pictures of their modern kitchen renovation:
The Bolitho’s were very happy with their final product. This is what they had to say:
Fantastic company with outstanding customer service! I would recommend Exclusiv Kitchens to anyone. Ed and Toni were friendly, professional, and extremely helpful and went above and beyond to ensure my experience was stress-free and enjoyable. My kitchen looks like something out of a showroom; it is of such high quality and designed so well. Friends and family all comment on my amazing kitchen and want to know which company I used. I couldn’t be happier with the quality and appearance of the kitchen, the incredibly affordable price and the amazing, hard-working and dedicated staff. Thank you so much Exclusiv Kitchens. I will be using you again!
We loved working with the Bolitho’s. They’re a lovely family and we just wanted to publicly thank them for their business.
