Planning your new Kitchen is an exciting venture and should not cause you any headache, that is why we at Kitchens by le Roux are here for you every step of the way. Here are some guide lines when planning your new Kitchen.
1. Make a Wish List
First things first you need to know what you want. Whether it’s cabinets that reach the ceiling, a big kitchen island, or a sink facing the outside window, having your wants and needs written down is the first step in a kitchen remodel. Pinterest is great source for some awesome ideas. You can also download our as a guide line.
2. Figure Out Your Budget
How much are you able to comfortably set aside to cover all the costs of your renovation?
3. Hire a Contractor
Contact one of our very talented team members to setup a meeting, either on site or at our offices - (Site Meetings are preferred as the Consultant is able to measure the walls, etc. after the meeting and there is no need to reschedule for an onsite measurement.)
4. Receive your 3D Render
Our Consultant will take all your info to our in-house Designer who will recreate your vison and send you your quote along with your realistic 3D renders.
You will now have the opportunity to revise your design and quote options, add, remove and make changes if and where necessary, you can send these amendments to our Designer who will redesign and requote you.
6. Deposits & Order
Once you are completely satisfied with your design and quote, you can pay the deposit. Only after the amount reflects in our bank account will our Analyzing team process the order for the cabinets and tops, if need be the Consultant might schedule a final measurement especially on new buildings or revamped properties - measure twice, cut once
7. Lead Time & Site Preparation
Our lead time is anywhere from between 3-6 weeks as some products might need longer to be produced than others, and some designs are bigger than others. During this time our Manufacturing team will be cutting and assembling your cupboards.
Please note the following we require from you during this time: (If you are making use of our CBLR Building and Renovation Division this will be done prior to Installation)
All plumbing and electrical work should be completed prior to installation, even if you’re only replacing worktops.
We don’t do plumbing or electrical work. Please ensure these are done.
We remove existing cupboards (price on application) but don’t remove tiles.
For cabinet installation, we require that:
Screeding of the floor is complete
Tiling is finished
Ceilings are installed
Rhinoliting is done
Glass windows are installed
Doors are installed
Plumbing and electrics are working
Walls behind built-in cupboards are painted
Power is available on site
The site is secure.
We will not accept any liability for damage to our product if installation is arrange and the above mentioned is not done, please contact your Consultant should you rather require a later installation date, this will be subject to availability of the installation teams.
8. Delivery & Installation
Your cabinets will be delivered to site, once this has been delivered, we require the delivery amount to be paid as this is a gesture for work to commence. Once proof of payment has been received the Installation team will begin the installation.
9. Final Sign Off
Once the installation is complete, you will be required to sign a Sign of Sheet and pay the final outstanding amount. We believe you will be very satisfied with our workmanship and quality of our installation, please remember to rate and comment on our Facebook page
