Kitchen Planning Procedure

For kitchen planning, clients visit our London kitchen showroom which is located at Winchmore Hill, London N21. Our initial kitchen planning meeting will determine the kitchen brand that you want. Without this as a starting point, we’re unable to start the designing of your kitchen, as we need to determine the supplier first. We have an extensive range of kitchen brands that we represent.

We can also discuss all the other elements to complement your kitchen, such as worktops, splashbacks, sinks, taps and kitchen appliances. We have a wide range of work surface materials and handles on the premises along with cabinet doors and other products.

We discuss your kitchen requirements in detail which takes into account the room size and configuration, how you want to use your kitchen, specialist requirement and storage needs. We can then help you make a decision on the kitchen brand based on your budget. From this information we will begin to design your luxury kitchen. Once we have designs to show you, we will arrange for you to visit our showroom again, and for this we allocate one and half hours with you.

The software that we have is the state-of-the-art that will show you an actual visual presentation of the entire room. We find that most customers are not visual enough, so the CAD software is a brilliant tool to showcase your entire kitchen.

Adjustments can be made at this stage, if required, until we get the design right. Once we have made all the adjustments, we will email you with a breakdown quotation showing you all the elements in your kitchen.

All designs and plans are copyright of Montana kitchens. Should a customer want plans to take away to discuss in the privacy of their own homes, and released to them, we charge £250 for this service.

Kitchen Planning for Larger Building Projects

We often work with clients in the early stages of house builds or extensions. It is best to involve us at least two to three months before a major building project because we can help with plans for the tradespeople, such as electricians and plumbers. We are happy to work alongside your architects and builders if this is a supply only kitchen.

Architects Drawings: Unlike most kitchen dealers who are not prepared to work with architect plans at a very early stage, we feel this is critical, and for this we are happy to work with you. For this service we charge £300 we can transfer all the information and measurements from the architects plans to our software. We will then design your kitchen and invite you to our showroom over to talk you through the plan. Please remember that we have not seen your property and we are only guided by the architect’s plans.

Once the extension is built or your rooms made bigger, we will send out a surveyor who checks all the room measurements again, as this is critical especially as your kitchen will be made bespoke for you.

A number of our clients may not have builders allocated to their projects. We are happy to recommend builders, flooring, tilers and other tradespeople that we have forged good relationships with over the years should they wish for more business. These are solely recommendations which we will incur no liabilities.

Kitchen Planning Design Fees

Our initial meeting and first viewing of the designs is free of charge, however if after that meeting the customer wants more time to think about the design and wants to come back for further changes, we will charge £250.

Kitchen Planning Payment Terms

Most of our kitchens are based on a ‘Supply Only’ basis which means that where we are supplying kitchens to the end user. We will request 50% deposit and the remaining balance to be paid three days prior to the kitchen delivery to site.

If fitters are required, we can recommend fitters that we have worked with over a number of years. The fitters get paid direct by the customer. We will of course oversee the project until the final installation.

We are very flexible on delivery times as we can work around our customers.
