Your kitchen and bathroom are the areas of your house where you are likely to invest the most per square metre of space. It makes absolute sense to have a carefully considered plan and process to follow. If you are redesigning a kitchen, bathroom or laundry, but are not sure how to lay out the space, exploring the possibility of moving walls, or the adjacency of the kitchen and dining/meal areas, you’ll benefit from forward planning. If you are demolishing the existing and starting with a clear slate, you will require all new fixtures, appliances, finishes and perhaps custom built in cabinetry.
Compared to the possible cost of renovating an average kitchen or bathroom which, with entry levelfinishes & fixtures can start at $36,000*, the percentage you invest in design is less than 10% of the value of the project. Your forward planning will ensure the project runs smoothly, minimising last minute changes, unforeseen builders’ variations, which can often exceed your contingency.
2 hour Project Briefing Consultation
An initial 2 hour Project Briefing consultation for Ongoing Design Services is required to kick start your kitchen, laundry or bathroom project. Every project is different, and this stage allows us to establish your project brief, timelines and budget. At this initial meeting, I can bring various samples relevant to your project, to establish an understanding of the types of materials available, the level of quality, and look & feel you desire. We’ll review your completed questionnaire & establish an outline of the project. I can assess the existing conditions of the space, do a check measure, and review any existing special pieces you’d like to keep, and discuss any functional requirements. The initial consultation for design advice can help you get focussed with establishing a plan for the room.
From this appointment I can then form a scope of works & prepare a fee proposal for us to complete your project.
This initial project briefing is $570 + GST. A 50% non-refundable deposit is payable up front to secure a booking, as I’ll need to prepare, order samples & brochures relevant to your project. I’ll email you a questionnaire to fill out, and will request photos of your existing room, plans of your house, and any inspirational photos you may have collected, so that I can review this relevant information prior to the consultation. This information must be supplied a minimum of 7 working days in advance.
