Call For An Appointment
At Portfolio Kitchens we understand that creating your new kitchen requires product knowledge, discussion, time and thought. Therefore, we operate on an appointment only basis so we can fully dedicate this time to you to discuss your kitchens needs.
Whether you have a firm idea in mind for your new kitchen, or need some inspiration, Portfolio Kitchens can help. We are a friendly team so please phone in the first instance for a brief chat about your new project. From here we can arrange a showroom appointment where we can introduce you to our beautiful product ranges, demonstrating the quality of our furniture and appliances and explaining the different properties of each.
It is always helpful if you can bring architect plans with you to your showroom appointment or even a rough drawing of your intended space. If these aren’t available then we will be more than happy to explain how to precisely measure your space, or following your initial appointment we can arrange a time to visit you.
To book your appointment, you can call us on 01617948262 or complete the booking request form.
Our Virtual Design Service Explained
Draw a floor plan.
Start by doing your research both for the style, look and feel you wish to create as well as all the practical elements that need to be included and, most importantly, your budget. Draw a floor plan and make it as detailed as possible. Mark up the position of doors and windows, light switches, plug sockets, the boiler, even structural elements such as a chimney breast, any pillars and beams or a sloping ceiling supporting a staircase above – basically any immovable details that will need to be worked around. Note down their measurements, including the height from floor to window sill and the top of the window to ceiling for instance as well as which direction the doors open. You don’t have to be an expert draughtsperson to produce a helpful floor plan, just do what you can. Take photos of the room you wish to redesign from lots of angles and in a good light. This now forms the basis of your starting point and you can discuss with us the sort of thing you want to create within the space.
Use online tools.
When it comes to style and layout, use online tools and social media platforms such as Pinterest, Houzz and Instagram and search for terms that interest you such as ‘2024 Interior Trends’, ‘Industrial’, ‘Contemporary’, ‘Classic’ or ‘Space-Saving’. Save any designs, room schemes or general images of materials, products, finishes, textures, colours and styles that you are drawn to and send them to us. This can be incredibly helpful in assisting our designers really ‘get’ your style.
What Needs To Be Different?
Make a note of anything that does and doesn’t work in the current layout – perhaps you need more storage space or extra workspace; maybe now you’re working from home more and could do with an ergonomic desk area that fits in with the rest of the room scheme.
