Step 1. Book A Free Consultation. With our team, you can book a free consultation so that we can discuss your project’s details and answer any questions that you may have about the process.  This will help us understand exactly what you want, and you will be able to ask us any questions you have about the process

We can cover the specifics of your project, such as how large your budget is, how much space you have to work with and so on.

Step 2. Craft Your Project Plan. After the initial consultation, you will receive a detailed proposal tailored to your renovation, with a summary of each step in undertaking successful Christchurch kitchen renovations.

The proposal will include a summary of all of your requirements, an outline of the collaborative design process, the processes to keep you in control of your budget and options for other architectural services that align with your needs.

Step 3. Begin The Design Process: Create Your Layout. Before you go into specific colours, finishes, materials, fixtures and more, make sure you have an idea of the layout that you want to use.

Using computer models and drawings, we can ensure you grasp all of the design nuances, allowing you to provide feedback for what you like and don’t like about your kitchen layout. This collaborative approach keeps you informed and engaged throughout this process.

During the layout design process, we can discuss your lifestyle, your wants and your needs to discover a kitchen layout that suits your home perfectly. Using your ideas and our experience, we can design a layout that flows well with your life and your home.

Step 4. Develop Your Design: Choose Your Materials And Fixtures. Navigating Christchurch kitchen renovations, especially while on a budget, requires thoughtful consideration of key elements to make sure your kitchen is as beautiful and functional as the ideal kitchen you dream of.

These details can include the following:

  • Materials. Whatever your budget, there are materials that will allow you to achieve the look you are after. Cabinetry can range from neutral or woodgrain laminates through to real timber veneers. Benchtops can be Formical high pressure laminate, stainless steel, engineered stone or even concrete. Regardless of your budget, the most important thing is to consider the durability of each material and ensure that it is appropriate for ths application. Pay particular consideration to areas of your kitchen that are subject to heat, moisture or wear.
  • Fittings And Fixtures. Of course, your Christchurch kitchen renovation won’t be very useful without the right fittings and fixtures. Some items, such as fridges and cooktops, can vary considerably in size, so it is useful to consider this at the outset so that enough space can be allowed to accommodate them. Many other appliances are generally of a standard size, so your selections aren’t so critical when the kitchen is being designed.

Step 5. Detailed Design And Documentation. After your layout is confirmed and your materials have all been selected, prepare for construction with detailed drawings, specifications for construction and applying for a building consent if required..

Step 6. Complete Your Kitchen Renovation. The final step for Christchurch kitchen renovations is, naturally, to commence and complete construction. We can assist you with obtaining prices from one or more contractors or joiners to ensure everything runs smoothly. You can then sit back and watch your dream kitchen become a reality.
