At Somax Kitchens, we believe in meticulous planning, thoughtful consideration, and outstanding design to create kitchens that seamlessly blend style and functionality. Led by owner and kitchen designer Toby Lister, our talented team is dedicated to guiding you through every step of the kitchen design journey.
Guided by the information gleaned during your personal design consultation, we then use the very best, state-of-the-art CAD software to produce photo-realistic, 3D visuals and plans which really help to bring your new kitchen to life. Not everyone has the vision to appreciate what your new kitchen space will look like, so these are a superb tool to help you with this. Initially, we may keep the visuals slightly neutral in terms of colours in order to focus on the form and function of your new kitchen.
We’ll also produce a clear, easy-to-understand, but comprehensive quotation for your kitchen which we’ll discuss in detail at the showroom. If you require any building work, we generally tend to get the kitchen design process underway first and then introduce the building trades once we have a rough idea of what will be involved.
During the design review at the showroom, we will then start the process of looking at the finer details such as colours, textures and finishes in conjunction with individual appliance specification, lighting, accessories and even flooring. Our kitchen design expertise makes this process enjoyable and stress-free.
It may take a number of amendments or redesigns to perfect your dream kitchen, this is perfectly normal and always part of our service to you. Once you’re 100% happy, then its time to pass the baton to the factory in Germany. In the meantime, we’ll produce accurate M & E plans (Mechanical and Engineering plans) which details all of the electrical and plumbing requirements for your new kitchen.
Leicht’s state of the art, Carbon Neutral manufacturing plant near Stuttgart will order the components for your kitchen, “just in time” meaning it holds no stock of cabinets as every order is totally bespoke.
