It always helps, in our view, to do a little homework before you meet with a kitchen company, by having a look on Pinterest or picking up some magazines to get a feel for the kinds of kitchens that are available and currently in vogue. Usually we recommend a trip to our showroom next, however we’re currently closed in-line with government guidelines. When open, we will be following all social distancing recommendations and a mask is required. On your first visit you might feel you just want to look around, but if you would like to spend a bit more time to talk through some of the options, then we would suggest an appointment, or calling ahead to ensure that one of our designers is available, particularly at the weekend. The next step is usually a site survey, where we can get a feel for the style and design that would work best in your home. If the site is not existing or is going to change drastically then we are more than happy to work from architectural drawings. From this meeting we can prepare a rough draft for the layout of your new kitchen, and give you an idea on budget. If you would like us to continue on with producing a full estimate, as well as some 3D perspectives and appliance suggestions, we can do so for £250, which is without obligation and deductible from any order.
A Seymour’s kitchen will probably not be the cheapest you will find nor, by a long way, will it be the most expensive option. But we would strongly contend that no kitchen company will be able to offer you better value for money. Cost is always important and we accept that everybody has a budget, but typically a Seymour’s kitchen will start at around £20,000, however some ranges do start at a lower price point. Although our initial consultations are without obligation, we will need to have a rough idea of your budget so that we can design an appropriate kitchen. In order to continue our work to produce full 3D drawings and plans, we request £250, deductible from any order placed. Once our estimate has been accepted, we will ask for a 25% deposit. After a full site survey we will prepare final drawings, and when these have been accepted a further 25% of the total will become payable. The next payment of 40% is required 10 days prior to installation, leaving the final 10% to be paid only when the kitchen is finished and only when you are totally satisfied that the job is complete. Payment terms may vary depending on the project type.
