Our Process

A     t D & F Cabinets we want to make the process of building your artisan kitchen or cabinetry a rewarding and seamless experience. We love the challenge of designing and creating something that is individual to you – whether you come to us with an idea in your head or your building plans or a cutting from a magazine or newspaper. We can build what you dream!

Our design and build process goes through these stages – 

  • Come to our workshop to discuss your needs and start planning.
  • We will draw up the plans and supply either basic or 3D drawings depending on the complexity of the design and your requirements.
  • We supply you with a quote based on these drawings and then proceed to next stage once approved.
  • Next you can peruse our timber samples and choose the materials to suit your design.
  • Then we move to choosing the finishes for the timber – we only use a highly durable, hard finish 2-pack polyurethane. This gives a beautiful finish to painted services or enhances the grains in timber.
  • You then can choose the finer details e.g kickboards or cupboard inserts.
  • If samples are required we will make them for you.
  • The cabinetry is then built in our workshop. Our clients are welcome at any time to drop in and see the progress. We also call you with regular updates.
  • The building process takes approximately 2 to 8 weeks depending on complexity. We only build for 1 or 2 clients at a time to ensure focus and quality.
  • The client then chooses the day they would like us to install and it is scheduled in. We can liaise with plumbers and electricians on your behalf if requested.
  • If required we remove the old kitchen before installing the new. 
  • The installation of your new kitchen then begins and is ready in 2-3 days.
  • All our work comes with a 10 year warranty.
