At Hallmark Kitchens we make designing & purchasing your new kitchen an enjoyable experience. We do however recognise that buying a kitchen can seem quite daunting, especially if it’s your first time. You may not want to jump straight into the process without first doing some research of your own. We invite you to contact us with any initial enquiries you may have. You can contact us in any way that suits you, and we’ll get back to you with answers to all your questions.

If you are at the stage of setting your budget, we can help.

You can send us a rough sketch of your kitchen layout and a list of your requirements, and we’ll be able to send back some different pricing options.

You may already have a price and design from another company, and just want to know how our prices compare. Simply email us the competitor quote & drawings and we’ll draw up a comparison quote for you.

2. Free Kitchen Measure

Free Home Measure

At Hallmark Kitchens we understand that accurate measurements are the foundation of a successful kitchen project. That’s why we offer a home measure as part of our free kitchen design service to help get things started. In fact we do more than just measure the kitchen walls. We take detailed measurements of everything that will affect the kitchen design. This includes any obstacles or obstructions, all power points and electrical supplies, drainage points, and anything else that may affect the design or installation of your new kitchen.

Our designers all use the latest laser tape measures, to ensure our measurements are as accurate as they can be.

Our designers only design kitchens & bedrooms, which

makes them kitchen & bedroom experts. They’re always aware of the latest trends, technologies and design possibilities. Having seen and measured your space at home, your personal designer can design your kitchen to work as ergonomically and efficiently as possible.

You may want to take your own measurements or you may already have a kitchen plan you are happy with. You can still take advantage of our free kitchen design service. Simply email us a copy of your plans with your wishlist and we’ll get a design ready for you.

3. Free Kitchen Design Consultation

Free Design Consultation

When it comes to design & price, we are one of the best kitchen companies in Bournemouth.

To help keep things nice and simple you will deal with the same Designer throughout the whole project. You may already have your own ideas, in which case you’ll get the opportunity to show off your creative flair, or you may choose to let your Designer take control of the design. Our Designers pride themselves on the ability to offer unique, innovative design ideas. It’s our Designers that make us one of the most innovative kitchen companies in Bournemouth.

To get the best out of this meeting, the key is to give us as much information as possible. If you have found photos that inspire you from other brochures or magazines, then have them ready so we can start to paint a mental picture of what

you’re trying to achieve. Have you heard of Pinterest or Houzz? If not, these are great websites that you can use to start building a free mood board for your new kitchen. Our design team use these all the time! Check out some of our boards for inspiration.  Houzz
A home survey doesn’t mean added pressure – it’s a totally no-obligation appointment. Our Designers never sell in the home, they’re only interested in taking measurements and finding out exactly what you’re looking for. As soon as we have all of the information we need, we’ll start work on your design and quote back at our design studio. This should take approximately 3-4 days.

7. Kitchen Installation

Our recommended kitchen company installation teams have worked with us for many years and know our products and design styles inside and out. You can have 100% confidence in these teams as they guarantee all of their work. Any electrical, plumbing or gas work will only be carried out by qualified tradespeople and all relevant certifications will be issued at the end of the project.

We can undertake the very basic installations right through to the more complex installations that involve structural building work. The installation teams have been hand-picked by Hallmark Kitchen Designs not only because their workmanship is second to none, but because they also share our commitment to exceptional customer service.

Installation starts with a pre-fit technical survey to make sure we really understand what your installation will involve.

Then, if required we will remove your old kitchen before starting to fit your new one. An installation can include a complete ‘wet fit’, which means that the fitting teams can also take care of any gas, electrics and plumbing requirements that arise from fitting your new kitchen. The installers know our kitchens inside out, so they get the job done quickly and efficiently. And they always tidy up on completion. Once your kitchen is installed, you’ll receive a 12 month workmanship guarantee directly from the installer.

You will also receive a full a schedule of works so you’ll be able to plan around the installation.
During the course of your kitchen installation, your kitchen designer will visit the site on several occasions and speak with you regularly, as our objective is the same as yours: a high

quality installation, completed in a timely fashion with diligence, care and attention to detail. The installers never forget that they are working in your home and aim to minimise disruption as much as possible.
