Kiwi’s have a staunch DIY attitude and cringe at the thought of paying someone else to do home renovations.
But when it comes to designing, renovating or building something as important and complex as your kitchen it is seriously worth considering using a kitchen designer to do it once and do it properly.
Employing a qualified kitchen designer offers many benefits as they have skills and experience that can’t be matched.
Kitchens aren’t that simple to construct, there are a huge number of building regulations and codes to comply with. If you aren’t familiar with them you could make major mistakes which cost you time and money. It is a kitchen designer’s job to stay up to date with codes and regulations, which is particularly useful when renovating older homes.
Designers have working relationships with exclusive suppliers in the industry. Using a designer means you have access to the latest products at great trade discounts.
The kitchen is the heart of your home so it is important to create something truly unique and special to you. A kitchen designer will create a one-off bespoke kitchen which is personalised to your needs, rather than just a cookie cutter kit set.
Kitchen designers work for you and manage the entire process from start to finish. It is their job to ensure the project comes in on budget and on time, taking the stress off of your shoulders.
