When designing your kitchen Caroline aims to be more than just an acquaintance. She’ll build a relationship with you many other businesses over look which therefore ensures the process is seamlessly executed from start to finish. In Caroline’s design process, she works by appointment only, guaranteeing you a perfect amount of time to discuss designs, colours and materials. She then works off your architects plans or completes a site survey, which aids in construction of a mood board which can spark ideas for colour schemes, materials and finishes. The final part of Caroline’s ‘design journey’ with yourself is a CAD drawing. This benefits her clients as it is easy to see layouts and how each part of your chosen kitchen works within the space. Throughout the process Caroline is always there to help as she will not only be on site on installation but can also help with interior design queries such as sourcing tables, chairs or soft furnishings that will fit in with your kitchen.
