Working with KI Atelier
First, get in touch and make an appointment with our design team to join us in the Vancouver showroom. This is your opportunity to put your ideas on paper, or if you don’t know where to start, let us help you create them.
At this time, bring your room dimensions. We will discuss appliances, fixtures, and finishes, but you will still have time to make specific decisions later.
In our second meeting, you will start to see your custom kitchen come to life. We will present our proposals, drawings, and estimates. Then, we will explain our ideas and recommendations, providing our expertise and rationale behind the designs. We hope you love what you see!
If you are happy with the proposal and wish to proceed, the next step is a design retainer. This will need to be signed before any drawings are released or amended and a site visit arranged. The design retainer is credited to your account when an order is placed. If the purchase is not completed within six months of the retainer, this retainer will serve as compensation for our services rendered.
Making it your own
After a site visit by your designer, measurements and site conditions will be confirmed, and changes may be made if necessary. Once we have the final design, we will issue a contract with a quote for the final project. This quote will include the supply and installation of cabinetry as per drawings.
Confirmation and Order
Your dream space is almost ready to come to life.
In order to move forward, a signed contract and deposit are required. Therefore, 50% of the total contract is due upon signing. During this stage, final drawings will be completed, and cabinetry will be ordered. Once the supplies arrive in Vancouver, another 50% of the contract will be due.
Once an installation date is mutually decided, we will work with your contractors to confirm the status of your site. Final payment is due at installation. Installation times vary by the size of the project, but we will be sure to keep in close contact with you and visit the site regularly.
