We're Brexit ready, are you?
With all the recent discussion around Brexit we thought we had better address the implacations it will undoubtedly have for your Kitchen project in 2021.
Our manufacturers and suppliers are working hard to ensure that appliances are available, but we are regularly hearing of disruption to supply chains already.
If the appliances you require are not ordered in time this may have a knock on effect for your project completion dates. Some items are taking 7-10 weeks so we urge you to order early !!
The below extract is from this months KKB magazine.
A kitchen retailer has many plates to spin, a typical kitchen involves coordinated product deliveries and services across the areas of furniture, appliances, sinks, taps, solid surfaces, delivery, and installation, all being delivered to an individual customer brief within a specific and narrow window of time. I can think of very few businesses where the product delivery is as complex. Let’s not forget that this chain of events only starts once you have found the customer, designed and sold the product too.
if it is sold with appliances or solid surfaces, it is almost inevitable these will be sourced in whole or in part in Europe, and a kitchen is only finished when its finished.
The business of bringing products from Europe to the UK will not be the same

We are OPEN
We reopened our showrooms on Wednesday 2nd December.
While the doors were closed, we were still here doing business on the phones and online.
Our appliance sales department have been busy working with manufacturers and suppliers, to secure stock despite delays and interuptions to deliveries.
We've been able to continue delivering and installing appliances for our customers, as well as carrying out repairs and service work.
The Kitchen designers have had their work cut-out for them. Communicating by phone with customers to discuss designs and alterations.
All our current projects are continuing and the kitchen fitters are now booking for February-March 2021.
If you would like to visit the showroom, we do ask that you wear a face covering and where possible please call us to make an appointment, so that the correct member of staff is available to speak with you.
We look forward to seeing you.
