Plan It

Things you will need: Measured drawings of the space, Style you are trying to achieve, Features you would like to include.

Planning your kitchen is when your ideas start to become reality. With the help of our Kitchen Designers at CW Kitchens, we will ensure that you get the kitchen of your dreams. Some considerations when planning your kitchen can include the style, design, and colour. Before you start to plan your design it is recommended that you do some research to narrow down your personal style. Think about how you use your current kitchen and what feels comfortable to you. Consider what you like about your existing kitchen and what particular items you would like to change. It is extremely helpful if you make a list of things that you would like to keep versus new additions that you would like to see in your new kitchen. Our Kitchen Designers will then design your space with the specific items, style, colours and material that you would like to see in your dream kitchen.

Finalize It

Things you will need: Appointment with Kitchen Designer.

When you are satisfied with your design it is time to sign off and put it into production. You will make one last appointment with your Kitchen Designer to go over any last minute modifications or changes. In this appointment all your selections and modifications are final. Drawings are then released to home owners upon sign off of drawing and deposit. If we will be delivering and installing the cabinetry, a final measurement will take place to ensure that everything designed fits properly.

What To Expect


Be Budget Wise

Think Ahead


Do some personal research into the style, colour, and design that interests you. Each individual has different interests and tastes. Visit our instagram page for inspiration.


Meet With Us


Book an appointment with one of our professional designers. The Design Showroom is open from 8:00am - 4:30pm Monday - Friday. Let us help make your dreams a reality.


Make It Reality


Measuring, designing, and making adjustments can take a long time. This particular process does not have a set time length as many things can change with the design.


Sign Off


Once the original design is complete and to your liking, everything needs to be signed to put it into production. This process occurs in the original meeting with your design consultant.


Production Process


The production timeline all depends on how busy the shop currently is. Time frame for job installation, once sign-off has been completed, can range anywhere from 3-4 weeks.


Installation Preparation


Prior to installation all pre-existing cabinetry must be removed and discarded. A clean and clutter free work space is needed during installation.


Installation Day


During installation sometimes additional pieces must be cut to adapt to the structure of the kitchen. If that is the case, installers may need to complete these cuts within the home.
