16 Nov The Shaker design process: all you need to know
It may seem like there’s a mountain to climb if you’re just starting off the planning of your new kitchen. Here at The Shaker Kitchen Co, however, we aim to make that process as smooth as possible. Here’s everything you need to know…
Ideas and inspiration
All our kitchens are designed and made exclusively for you -there are no flat packs here. To help give our designers the best idea of what you want in your space, gather ideas from Pinterest, magazines, or even just pictures from friend’s houses. It all helps to collect your thoughts and share them with your designer.
Meet your designer
Book a design appointment at one of our showrooms (Fulham, Clapham or Cirencester) and one of our professional designers will be ready and waiting to talk about your space and how to achieve your dream kitchen. Of course, we appreciate that not everyone can get to a showroom so we also design via email – simply send your ideas and measurments to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do the rest virtually so you don’t need to leave the comfort of your home.
Once they’ve understood your brief, our designers will set to work creating the perfect arrangement of cabinetry and appliances for your space. This process can take up to 15 working days to allow the designer to cover all the detail and create the drawing for you. Of course if you need a faster turnaround for whatever reason, just let the designer know and we’ll do all we can to meet your timings.
After you’ve received the drawings from our designers, now’s the time to review everything and check that you’re happy with the look and arrangement of your kitchen. If there’s anything you are not sure about our designers are on hand to answer any questions or to make any changes until your totally happy. Then simply decide if you would like your cabinets fitted or not and let our designer know.
Get set, go!
Depending on whether you’ve chosen cabinets from our Pure or Bespoke range, your finished kitchen could be with you in as little as a few weeks (Shaker Pure only). Our cabinets will arrive fully assembled, and hand painted in your chosen colour.
