FAQs2021-09-06T15:08:54+10:00
How long does the average kitchen renovation take?2019-11-05T16:10:07+11:00

Every kitchen is different, but we suggest that customers allow at least 6-8 weeks from start to finish for a kitchen from the Designer kitchen range. A kitchen from the Xpress kitchen range will arrive around 10 days after final payment, ready for you to assemble.

How soon can I have a kitchen designer visit me?2018-02-16T09:29:24+11:00

In most cases we can have a professional consultant in your home by the next business day.

I’ve paid the deposit on my kitchen and have changed my mind and want to cancel. Can I get my money back?2018-03-09T17:00:42+11:00

There is a 5-day cooling off period. Beyond this period, you have entered into a legal contract which states Kinsman Kitchens is entitled to retain all reasonable costs and expected margin that would be derived from the job should it have proceeded to completion, subject to the non-excludable guarantees and warranties under Australian Consumer Law. The placement of a kitchen order generates significant work including the creation of original designs, check measuring, CAD drawings, and client account management.

However, for our Designer kitchen range, we strongly recommend you using tradespeople who are fully licensed and who have lots of experience in installing kitchens. Talk to your proposed tradespeople before you engage them and ask them to provide references and examples of their recent work.

Can you remove our existing kitchen?2018-02-16T09:34:09+11:00

Yes, for a fee, the site checker can arrange for your existing kitchen to be removed and disposed of.

What are some popular colour palettes to incorporate into your new Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:58+11:00

Similar to kitchen trends, some popular Home Office colour palettes we are seeing at the moment celebrate the Hamptons, Modern and Scandi styles. We love to mirror or complement the existing cabinetry and tops that you already have in your home so as to create a cohesive look.

If you love a Hamptons style then a classic combination of Somersby Shaker-profile doors matched with a marble-look desktop works a treat. Alternatively if a modern and moody palette is more to your taste, you might like to consider darker-toned doors, integrated handles and a cool concrete or matte black desktop. There are plenty of options to pick from in the Kinsman range!

Is lighting important in a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:46+11:00

Yes! A well-planned lighting scheme will improve your productivity in your work space. Depending on your home office layout, LED downlights or Strip LED lighting within the cabinetry or a combination of both, are great options.

What is something that is sometimes overlooked when designing a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:38+11:00

It can be easy to overlook small details that are actually very important in the functionality of your home office/study. Our designers will work with you to work out best placement of essentials such as power points, cable access, as well as space for printers and internet modems.

What are 3 essentials for a functional Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:33+11:00

Our top 3 essentials are:
1. Ample storage. Smart storage is king! We love to use a combination of solutions such as drawers, cupboards and open shelving to ensure you have everything where you need it.
2. Tactile surfaces. Beautiful and stylish finishes and textures for your Kinsman doors and desktops aids creativity and ensures that your home office is a place you love spending lots of time in.
3. A functional & practical layout: It’s the small details that can make or break the functionality of a home office. Give careful consideration to details such as the placement of power points.

How do you create a stylish & functional Home Office in a small space?2021-01-13T13:51:27+11:00

Short on space? Don’t worry! There are still plenty of great options to create your perfect Kinsman Home Office. Our designers will look to create a Home Office that utilises all the space that you have available to you in a smart and stylish way!

A great option is for a desk area to be added to your new Hinged Kinsman Wardrobe or as flowing joinery such as a benchtop from your robe to form a desk. You can also look to create an office/study zone in an existing part of your home, such as guest bedroom, lounge room – you can even add a stylish slimline desktop in your hallway!

What height should a desk be at?2021-01-13T13:51:22+11:00

Typically the height of a desk should be around 720-750mm for a comfortable place to work.

What is the minimum size for a desk?2021-01-13T13:51:16+11:00

If space is tight, then its best to create a simple desk area where you can use a laptop, which means that your desktop should be no less than 450mm deep with 300mm leg room/depth underneath.

Where should a desk go in a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:09+11:00

Most of our joinery is suitable for built-in solutions, between wardrobes / nib walls, or built around your room dimensions. However you can also opt for a freestanding office desk, centred to the room with space to walk around (for this layout you will need to be conscious about factors such as power access).

Most of our joinery allows for your Kinsman wardrobe design to flow effortlessly into a study nook or home office space.

How much space do I need for a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:51:03+11:00

As above this will very much depends on how you plan on using the space and what your exact requirements are.

If you’re simply looking for somewhere handy to sit at your laptop a 600mm deep space with open shelving works really well, however, if you need more storage have a few screens and/or have equipment such as printers and the like then you will require a larger space (with smart storage solutions of course).

How do I set up a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:50:56+11:00

Planning, Planning, Planning! Make sure to design around all your office needs, allocating space for any equipment such as printers, as well as all-important storage. Our experienced designers will work with you to create the perfect Home Office that meets all your needs! You can book an in-home appointment or one of our Virtual consults where your designer will video-call you to help you get your Home Office journey started!

What is a good size for a Home Office?2021-01-13T13:50:50+11:00

This really depends on a number of factors. Considerations such as how many people will work in the space, whether multiple desks are required, what needs to be stored in the space, will there be large office equipment such as printers that will need to be accommodated in the room, will all affect the space needed.

Ultimately, the answer is that we will create a Home Office or Study Zone that is both comfortable and functional with sufficient storage within the space you have available.
