Take those ideas right through to completion.

Design Process:

We recommend that it is best that you firstly book a consultation with one of our designers to meet in one of our Kerikeri or Auckland showrooms.

At this stage we need to know an approximate budget, your style preference and other factors that will influence the desired outcome.

If your project is a new build, we will require you to bring along your architects floor plan of the kitchen area. For renovation work, we will look at these on a case by case basis. Either we can work off a dimensioned plan, or you may require a site visit.

Working with you we will come up with a design and written price proposal that best fits your criteria. We prefer to discuss the quote and drawings face-to-face, as there is a lot of detail that may not be apparent in just the end ‘price’.

In order to carry out a design, we do ask that you agree to our drawing contract. This states that our design work is free of charge if you purchase your fitout from Kitchens by Wood Design*.

Manufacturing Process:

Once the design process is complete, the drawings need to be signed by the client in confirmation that all details are correct and a 50% deposit paid. Once this process has occurred, your kitchen will then enter production.  Our standard manufacturing times are 6-8 weeks, but will need to be confirmed upon the ordering of your kitchen.


A site visit by Kitchens by Wood Design will now confirm all dimensions we require for pre-production ordering of materials and computer generated data to enable us to commence actual machining of components.

The manufacturing process then continues till all components come together ready for final assembly in our factory.

Installation Process:

The installation date will be confirmed with either yourself or your builder. This needs to be coordinated with other sub trades depending on whether the situation is a renovation or a new build.

Your kitchen is then dismantled and packed into our delivery vehicle (s) awaiting site delivery by our own team.

Installation is performed by our team of contract installers; qualified tradespeople who share our desire that no detail is overlooked.

Final payment is required at this stage to enable all warranty detailing to be submitted to our suppliers.

We take pride in our finished work and will professionally photograph most completed installs with your permission. Any door/drawer adjustments can be attended to at this time to ensure all hardware functions as it should.

*If you decide not to proceed with Kitchens by Wood Design, our design work is chargeable at $85.00 +gst/hour, a minimum charge of $200.00+gst. This amount is fully refundable should you wish to proceed with your order at a later date.
