The Process

Get your dream kitchen with Applewood Kitchens
We like to keep the process of fitting your dream kitchen as efficient and simple as possible to minimise the disruption on your day-to-day life as we fit your kitchen. Each kitchen is different, as we tailor our services to suit your needs, however most fitted kitchens take the following stages.

Visiting our showroom

We always suggest paying a visit to one of our local showrooms, in Ascot and Warfield to browse the units, worktops and appliances on display and talk through your requirements.

Once we’ve established your needs and have an idea of your likes and dislikes, we’ll offer our opinions and advice on the products we feel will best suit you. If you wish, we’ll then make an appointment to visit your home.

Structural work

Before work starts on site the surveyor & project manager who will be overseeing the whole process will introduce themselves. Your chosen builders will then come in to prepare the space for your new kitchen. This may include dismantling your old kitchen, carrying out any structural work required and laying new flooring. Your electricians will then prepare the electrics ready for the new appliances, install your new lighting and replace your fuse board if the existing one doesn’t comply with Part P regulations. Your plasterer will then come in to make good.  We have many teams of builders that have undertaken work for us over the years, we are happy to recommend these to you if they are required.

Fitting

If necessary your appointed plumbers and gas fitters will come in at this stage to prepare the pipework and make any changes required to your heating system, such as replacing radiators or relocating your boiler, and perhaps supplying a new feed to a gas hob.

Our fitters will then come in and install your new units and appliances. Once they’re in place the stone mason (if solid surface material is being used) will take the exact measurements so your worktops can be cut to fit perfectly. The units we supply have fully enclosed tops, so there’s no need to worry about dust and debris getting in before your work surface arrives.

Finishing touches

Our floor tilers will usually complete their work while the worktops are being prepared. Finally, our stone masons will install your worktops and the installer will return to make the finishing touches and connect the taps and hob into the stone tops before leaving you to enjoy your new kitchen.

We understand that our customers have busy lives, so we do our best to keep disruption to a minimum, working around your schedule. We’ll also make sure to leave your home safe and clean at each stage.
