How do you work?
How much should I expect to pay for a Planet Furniture kitchen?
Our prices tend to start at around £25k and go upwards towards £100k. However, this price range is approximate and, at the top end, reflects multiple room refurbishment and bespoke cabinetry.
What is the installation process?
We start with the ‘dry fit’, once the all the associated works have been completed by your own builder including the removal of the existing kitchen, plumbing, electrics and flooring.
We recommend your plumber and electrician attend the site during the last days of the installation to connect the appliances and plumb in the sink to the services.
After the installation is complete our project manager will make a final inspection and sign off the project with you.
What is the average timeframe to install a kitchen?
A typical project will take approximately 4 weeks to complete with hand painted finishes taking an additional 4-5 days on site. Certain items such as quartz/granite worktops and glass or mirrored splashbacks can take approximately 2 weeks from templating to installation so our fitters may not be on site at this time.
Will you work with my builder?
Yes, we are happy to liaise with your builder throughout the process and are happy to provide detailed drawings of suggested plumbing, electrical and lighting layouts.
Do I pay for the initial design - even if I don’t go with you?
All drawings remain the property of Planet Furniture until a deposit is paid.
What deposit should I expect to pay?
We usually request a deposit of 50% on confirmation of the order. The remaining costs are split into 3 further payments; 35% prior to delivery, 10% prior to the worktop installation and 5% balance on completion of works.
Are there any other branches of Planet Furniture?
There is only one Planet Furniture showroom which is in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. However a Planet Furniture kitchen can be seen in the AGA showroom in Harpenden.
Will I need a site survey?
Once you have expressed an interest in Planet Furniture for your project, one of our designers will undertake an initial site survey unless you have architects scale drawings. A final survey will be made once our design has been agreed as minor alterations may be necessary. Following which, the final specification and working drawings are prepared ready for sign off and manufacture.
Will you produce M&E drawings for my plumber/electrician?
Yes, once the order has been confirmed.
Where will my kitchen be manufactured?
It will be manufactured in our workshop in Hitchin, Hertfordshire unless you have chosen one of our German ranges.
Will you be able to hand paint the finished kitchen?
Yes, if you have chosen furniture from our Handmade in Hitchin range, this will be a hand painted finish.
Do you just do Kitchens?
No, we can design and manufacture bespoke, built in furniture for any room in your home.
