There’s no shortage of kitchen studios out there, which can make finding the right one for you confusing. So, we’ve simplified it, helping you to make the right choice for your kitchen.
Elite group of kitchen studios
At Ideas for Living, we partner with an elite group of kitchen studios who provide homeowners with beautiful, local kitchens in their area; these are our Studio Partners. We want you to have absolute peace of mind in your local Studio Partner – here are some ideas of just how you can do that;
1. Visit the showroom
Pop in and have a look around. This is when you’ll get a real feel for the kitchens they design and fit. Don’t be afraid to talk about the kitchens in the showroom with the staff there at the time – this is a fantastic opportunity to discuss design ideas, and also to get to know the team and how comfortable you feel with them, as they will be working in your home. You can find your nearest Studio Partner showroom here.
2. Check out previous work with photos and case studies
Take a look at the studio’s website and social media pages, especially looking out for case studies. They may also have a physical portfolio that you could request. Give them a call to ask, or complete the online contact form on our Studio Partner profiles – you can find your local Studio Partner here.
Once you have found your local Studio Partner, check out their profile page where you can find links to their website, the services they offer, addresses and contact details.
3. Make sure you feel comfortable with them
Feeling comfortable with the team is absolutely vital as you are trusting them with one of the most significant investments you can make to your property. If you feel like you are in safe hands at initial meetings, you are more likely to have peace of mind throughout the project. Ask to meet the kitchen fitter as you will be trusting them in your home. Think about whether they inspire confidence.
Questions to ask your Studio Partner
1. How far in advance are you working on kitchens at the moment?
2. How many kitchens do you complete a year?
3. Can you provide me with some case studies?
4. How can you make the best use of the space that I have available?
