The top 10 tips to get you ready for your Design Appointment!
Undergoing a kitchen renovation is one of the most exciting home improvement projects you can undertake. It can also be overwhelming, so at Kinsman, we offer free design appointments with our experienced designs within your home, via video call, or within selected The Good Guys stores. During the meeting, you and your designer will discuss various things and work together to create your dream kitchen design.
To get the most out of your design appointment, we spoke to some of our top designers to understand how to best prepare for your consultation. Here are their top 10 tips!
1. Trust the professionals.
Commissioning a reputable and high-quality kitchen company to transform your kitchen is so important, and rest assured, when you work with Kinsman and our design experts, you’re in great hands! Your designer is there to listen to your needs, wants and ideas and will offer you excellent solutions and even ideas you haven’t considered. Plus, we offer a 7-year guarantee on our kitchen cabinets and doors so you can enjoy the space you create for a long time.
2. Have a good idea of your budget and share it with your designer.
While it may seem daunting to share your budget with your designer, it’s actually very helpful and will allow them to identify which Kinsman Range is best suited to bring your perfect kitchen to life. We offer four collections from our luxury and extensive Designer Range to Xpress, our flat pack offering- and often have special offers running – so there is something for everyone and every budget.

3. Understand what ‘Kitchen Style’ you want to achieve.
Our magazine-style catalogue is a great resource to look at before your appointment to see what style and colours you like – particularly in terms of your cabinetry colours and profiles, as well as benchtops and handles. Moodboards are a great visual way to share with your designer what you love and will allow them to find the right selections within our ranges.

4. List any special ‘finishing touches’ you’d like in your kitchen.
Share with your designer if there are particular features you’d like to include in your design. Kitchen handles, sinks, tapware, pendant lighting, and splashback tiles can all significantly impact your kitchen’s ‘look’. Again, this is where a moodboard, Pinterest board, magazine clippings or physical samples are great to share during your kitchen consult so that you and your designer can ensure that your dream kitchen look can be brought to life.
