Our Process – From dream to reality
We offer a complete service from design to final finish, providing custom furniture for your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, library and home office. Our experienced and skilled design and installation team will guide you through the design process to ensure that your every requirement is fulfilled and that your furniture is perfectly fitted to your home.
To achieve the kind of customer satisfaction that Sola Kitchens has attained means taking infinite care of the smallest details of your needs. The process has several stages:
Free design consultation
Your kitchen journey starts with a free Initial Design Consultation. The consultation takes around 2 hours where you and your Sola Kitchens designer will discuss your kitchen layout in detail, including the choice of storage, worktops, appliances and the budget for the project. At the end of the meeting, your designer will arrange another free appointment, the Kitchen Design Presentation.
At the Kitchen Design Presentation, your designer will present the initial design proposal, illustrated with detailed plans, elevations and computer generated graphic designs (CAD) illustrations to enable you to visualise your new kitchen. You will also be given a detailed quotation for the kitchen.
Commissioning your kitchen
When you have commissioned the kitchen, your designer will continue working with you to finalise all the details of the kitchen design, including choosing work surfaces, handles and all the details of your kitchen layout. At this stage you can also take all the plans and drawings with you, and we will provide detailed service plans if required.
When you are completely satisfied with the design, your kitchen will be carefully handmade by skilled Scandinavian craftsmen. Our modern furniture is handmade in Denmark and our classic furniture is handmade in Sweden. The cabinetry takes approximately 8-10 weeks to carefully build and deliver to your house.
Surveys and schedules
Once the kitchen has been commissioned, a detailed site survey will be carried out before the kitchen order is finalised. If you have other building teams involved, for example if you are doing a kitchen extension, we will provide detailed service plans for the location of gas, electricity, plumbing etc to ensure that everything is in the right place when we come to fit the kitchen. We have our own installation manager and installation teams to ensure that your installation goes as smooth as possible.
The installation of your kitchen will take 2-5 weeks depending on the size of the kitchen, the choice of worktops and splashbacks and whether the kitchen is hand painted. Sola Kitchens’ own installers will expertly install your kitchen and our installation manager will oversee the installation process to make sure that everything goes smoothly. We ensure that all our kitchens are installed to a perfect finish and we do not sign off a kitchen until the very last handle has been fitted and you are 100% happy.
