How We Work

At The Kitchen People our friendly team of experienced designers are here to help you through every stage of your kitchen journey. We will design a kitchen as individual as you are, listening carefully to all your individual requirements and needs.

The process:

Come and visit our stunning showroom in the picturesque village of Lindfield and meet the team. We can introduce you to our selection of kitchens from our four suppliers and show you around our beautiful displays featuring all the latest storage solutions, worktops, appliances and much more. Alternatively if you are unable to visit the showroom you can call us to discuss your project during which we can arrange a time for us to come and see you.

The next stage is to arrange for one of our professional designers to come and visit you in your home. This usually takes 1-2 hours and gives us the opportunity to get to know you and your home in order to create a design suited to your lifestyle and budget. We ask that you prepare a ‘wish list’ for us prior to us visiting you so we can discuss your vision for your new kitchen, appliances, all the features you like and dislike, and your budget. At the survey we will record all the necessary measurements and information for us to then start work on your design back at the studio.

The next meeting is then with your designer at the showroom. The concept for your new kitchen will be presented to you using the latest computer technology which allows us to bring your design to life with 3d visuals and tours of your new kitchen. At the showroom you will be able to see the products and finishes that we have recommended for the scheme. An initial cost for the supply of the kitchen will be presented to you at this meeting to give you an idea of the potential costs for your new kitchen. At this meeting we will schedule a time for one of the fitters to visit your home with your designer so you will then have an installation quote for the kitchen too. Our fitters are independent local tradesmen and work direct for our clients, ensuring that you get the most competitive price for the installation of your kitchen and all associated works. We can undertake all aspects of kitchen installation and our team of experienced craftsmen – including plumbers, builders, electricians and flooring specialists ensure we take care of everything for you.

Once the technical survey has been carried out you will have the total costs for the project. Upon your acceptance of the quotes we can now book your installation date, place the order for your new kitchen and establish a schedule of works with the fitter. Your designer and fitter will project manage the installation smoothly and efficiently for you, working with architects and builders, if required, from initial concept to final completion. On completion of the project, your designer will return to make sure that you are completely happy with the final product and to handover your beautiful new kitchen.
