Glen Kelman from Install Concepts (now named Kitchen Concepts) made a really positive impression on us with not just his creative skills, but his ability to listen to our dream and vision, and turn that into a design that really excited us.
It’s hard to describe the excitement we felt when we received the full 3D computer concepts! Our kitchen, there on paper in 3D for us to really get a good feel of. That process allowed us to identify elements for tweaking and refinement, and it took a few iterations before we felt it was perfect. Glen was only too happy to guide us through that process and tweak and refine the design.
Glen picked up on the laundry early on and suggested he do a design to compliment the kitchen. At that stage, we hadn’t properly thought about the laundry and it was in a bit of a state due to the hot water cylinder relocation. The initial design he did was really impressive, and we couldn’t say no.
We visited Glen and Aimee at Kitchen Concepts’ showroom to discuss and select materials, colours and appliances. We settled on a relatively inexpensive but high-quality laminate benchtop; white with a fine speckle. The kitchen doors, drawers etc would be flat white, with black oven, cooktop and range hood. The dishwasher would be “hidden” behind a seamless panel. Sink, faucet and all handles would be brushed stainless. The look we wanted to create would be right in line with our renovation “mission statement”, i.e. clean, modern, timeless and functional.
Kitchen Concepts used high quality Austrian blum hardware as standard, which meant soft closing cupboards and drawers.
