How we work with clients.

At Tec-Lifestyle we provide more than just a kitchen design. Thanks to our personable approach towards our clients, you can expect a personalised service to exceed expectations from concept to reality.

Our CAD designs and consultations are free with no obligation.

OUR STEP BY STEP PROCESS

Inspire

The first step of any successful project has to be the research stage, gathering inspiration and forming an idea of how you would like your new space to look and function. We encourage our clients to begin their Design journey in-store to get a feel for what we are all about. Our displays really showcase what our supply base is capable of and the looks that we can create

 

Another great source of inspiration are our social media accounts and completed projects, where you can see some of our clients completed designs brought to life in their homes.

Plan

The planning stage of the journey is probably the most important. For this we arrange an in-store appointment with one of our Design specialists.  When attending your appointment we would kindly ask you to bring the following information with you:

*Exact measurements of your Kitchen space, including ceiling height, window & door sizes to enable us to create accurate 3D images of your Kitchen.
*Boiler position if located within the kitchen area and any other items or obstructions that may need to be considered when designing the space.
*Whether you have a ‘gravity fed’ or ‘pressurised’ hot water system, so we can quote for suitable taps based on your water pressure.
*A selection of quick photos of your current kitchen space from each angle really helps too.

Our Kitchen Designer will start by taking a brief. Together you will spend time exploring our kitchen product ranges within the showroom and create a wish list of desired furniture, appliances, sink & taps, lighting, flooring as well as colour scheme ideas. They will also talk about product specification and budget.  We encourage you to be as imaginative as you like. Bring images, magazine cuttings, material and colour samples if you wish. This is your dream kitchen and we want to make it perfect for you.

 

After the in-store appointment our Designer will where viable arrange a visit your home to see the space and take accurate measurements. If your home or extension is currently being built we are more than happy to work off of scaled drawings.

Design & Present

Working from the brief taken in the planning appointment, our Designer now gets to work, creating layouts and bringing your new Kitchen to life with 3D Designs.

Our CAD designs and consultations are free with no obligation.

 

Once our Designer has completed your Kitchen concepts and quotation you will be invited back into store for a second appointment where you will be presented with the finished visual designs and shown sample colours & finishes included.

 

This will often be a collaborative process making any required changes and finalising colour & finish choices to complete your new Kitchen scheme.

Create

Once you are happy with the Kitchen designs, product specification and final costings, it is time to formally place your order and pay a deposit to secure your new Kitchen.

 

You then can relax and let us and our brand partners get to work creating, supplying and collating every element of your new Kitchen ready for delivery and installation.

Install

Now it’s time to turn your dream Kitchen into an everyday reality.

At Tec-Lifestyle our preferred method of working is by our complete project management service, comprising of design, supply and installation. However we also offer a design & supply service for those who already have a builder or installer appointed.

 

Our installation teams are experts in their own fields and ones who we have built very strong working relationships with throughout the years of partnering together. Depending on your requirements we offer as much or as little as you need. Our tailored installations are individual and quoted on a project by project basis.  They range from a simple fit of a kitchen up those incorporating complex building works and everything in between.  Where complex building works are required we work alongside a select few trusted local companies co-managing the project together, leaving you with peace of mind that between us we have your project covered.

 

Where our customers have their own appointed builder or installer we would always recommend we arrange a quick  briefing meeting within our showroom where our designers can talk through the plans and highlight any specialist products ensuring the project is brought to life as everyone intended.
