Design Consultations

Design & Proposal Appointments

The first step in the process of getting a price proposal is to determine whether you need a straight forward proposal meeting or a more detailed design consultation appointment with one of our designers.

Proposals Appointments

If you have plans or a design outline for the joinery you require and know what type of materials you would like to be quoted on, then a proposal can be provided free of charge.  Proposal meetings take about 30 minutes and can be booked in the showroom or requests can be emailed, posted or dropped into the showroom.

If you are unsure of materials or finishes then feel free to pop into the showroom – our staff will be happy to review your requirements with you and answer any questions you have about material options prior to you booking an appointment.

Design Consultations

These are best suited to clients who want to help with a new design and access alternative finishes and materials to achieve a unique result.  This appointment will be advantageous to the client to achieve optimum results in their project.  A hand sketched floor plan is provided with an indication of finishes (not including colours at this stage).

Design advice includes investigating what your requirements are, developing a floor plan layout, product inclusions and material selection.  Following your 1 hour appointment the joinery designer spends approximately another hour completing a hand drawn floor plan to scale as well as preparing a price proposal.

Appointment Fees

Proposal Meeting $0 Client provides measurements, materials required and product selection
Design Consultation $150 inc.gst Design consultation for 1 to 2 rooms, includes floor plan sketch, product & materials selection
Large Project Design Consultation $150 inc.gst per hour Design consultation for multiple room or whole house joinery projects.  Price is dependant on scope of work and is charged purely on hours required.

*Any fees paid are fully reimbursed against the cost of the project if you select us to complete the job.

On Site Measure & Design Consultation

Only in rare cases is this done first. Note: If the kitchen design is going to be different there is no need to see the original design.  Please consider if an onsite measure is necessary as it is likely that a Design Consult appointment in the showroom would also then be required.
