The first stage in the kitchen design process is for Ian Harris, our experienced cabinetmaker and installer, to visit you in your home for your kitchen design consultation. (Or if your home is still under construction, we can meet you at our workshop in Haruru Falls.) We cover the Bay of Islands area, including Kerikeri, Waipapa, Paihia, Opua, Russell and further.
At your kitchen design consultation, Ian will discuss what you have in mind for your kitchen in terms of looks, as well as functionality. He’ll also measure your kitchen, and discuss your preferences for colour schemes and finishes.
If you’ve seen any ideas online or in magazines, please bring them along to your kitchen design consultation. You can also see our gallery for kitchen ideas.
As all our kitchens are crafted by hand and bespoke to your needs: we can create something very unique and special for you. Please let us know if you have any ideas for bespoke cabinetry or special storage requirements.
Ian will coordinate with our in-house Kitchen Designer, Adam, to create the concept plans of your ideal kitchen design. Adam’s a whizz at kitchen design in CAD software, and you’ll be able to see your customised kitchen design via 3D modelling.
You’ll be able to review your kitchen plans and be able to make any changes you wish for a perfect result.
If you decide not to proceed with Harris & Thurston, our kitchen design work is chargeable at $85 plus GST per hour, with a minimum charge of $200 plus GST. This is fully refundable should you wish to proceed with your order at a later date.
Once you’ve approved your kitchen plans, we’ll be able to provide you with a cost for the work.
Unless you make changes to your kitchen plans, the price we quote is the price you’ll pay.
Kitchen installations are undertaken by our experienced in-house team. So the people who designed and made your kitchen will also install it. This hands-on approach means that all the little details are taken care of, and the work is completed to the highest standards.
We’ll arrange and coordinate other trades (plumbers, electricians
