An independent source of kitchen design advice & ideas
Taking advantage of our Gold Kitchen Design Service is likely to be quicker and easier - for you - than trying to explain what you like, and what you don't like, about our ideas, by e-mail ... but obviously, to us, it's a lot more time consuming to come out on a second appointment ... hence the extra cost. It's perfectly possible to modify your design(s) without a second visit (and to come up with a design in the first place, without an initial visit) ... most of our plans have been successfully carried out in either of those ways ... but the ideal is to discuss the kitchen with you and show you your plan on the computer.
That's the laptop in our office, of course ... we expect it to be in much more comfortable surroundings in your house!
Unfortunately, if you decide to upgrade from our Silver Kitchen Design Service to the Gold ... then there is an extra £250 to pay. In other words the total is £500, rather than £450. This applies only if you have already had your designs from the Silver Service finalised ... and the extra charge is, of course, because we will need to do two sets of finalised plans, in that case.
An upgrade of this sort is sometimes necessary for large kitchens designed from architects plans - when the actual building work involves alterations to the space - or for complicated extensions where, for instance, several rooms are being knocked into one, and the amount of wall remaining in the room changes.
The kitchen below required an upgrade for just that latter reason (you can see the various wall pillars and ceiling beams in the pictures). The final room is a slightly odd shape but will make a great family kitchen.
Here's a computer drawing first, followed by some photorealistic visualistions:

We have yet to charge more than £750 for any kitchen design, however expensive and complicated the kitchen! That compares rather favourably with the 10% commission that many in-house designers get paid. You won't get very much complicated and expensive kitchen for £7,500 these days.
