These are some of the questions you may have. If you don’t see your question here, by all means contact us and we will be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Who builds your cabinets/cupboards?
Q: Why is it necessary to measure appliances before designing my kitchen?
Q: Are colour samples available?
Q: How long does it take to get my cabinets after I place an order?
Q: How long is the Ceanesse warranty?
Q: Why is my Ceanesse Kitchens quote higher than some other firms?
A: No two kitchen designers will produce the exact same design. The designer’s knowledge and experience, the product offerings and standard sizes, space and appliance allowances, and the ability to interpret your wishes all influence the quote. After all, a quote is an educated guess, and we strive to give you a realistic so you don’t get extra “surprise” costs halfway through a project.
That said, we design your space as if it were our own and take care to ensure nothing is overlooked. We aim to maximize efficiency and functional space, and at the same time, provide you with options to upgrade or demonstrate ways to reduce or eliminate features to meet your needs and budget.
If your Ceanesse Kitchens quote is higher than your budget, there is probably a good reason. Ask your designer to walk you through the design and the quote and suggest options that will better fit your budget or get you closer to your dream kitchen.
Q: Can I install my own cupboards/cabinets?
A: Yes, you can do the installation yourself, but we strongly recommend that a Ceanesse Kitchens professional do the installation to ensure safety, precise fit, and correct procedures, as well as to meet warranty requirements.
However, if you decide to do the installation yourself, it is important that you understand potential issues:
- In many cases, walls and floors are not level. A professional installer uses techniques to resolve these issues.
- Cabinets must be plumb and square, otherwise drawers and doors will not function properly. Hardware adjustments will not solve these issues.
- Cutting fillers, toe kicks, crown mouldings, scribe mouldings, and other parts is a complicated task that requires skill; if not done properly, the result will be visually unattractive.
- Sometimes installing your own cabinetry ends up costing you more in time and money than you would have spent using a professional. We have the equipment, experience, and expertise to do the job efficiently and properly the first time.
- Cabinetry will not be warranted when installed improperly or by someone who isn’t a professional installer.
If after considering these potential issues you still choose to install your own kitchen, speak with your designer about getting a copy of the layouts and paperwork to help you with the process. Ensure you have the proper tools and allow adequate time. Be absolutely sure you have identified the location of studs in order to fasten your cabinets securely.
