Glen co-ordinated our kitchen renovation, which also included electrical, plumbing and glass splash-back work… He had excellent communication skills, great knowledge of his product, and was very organised. Most of the work was finished within two working days, with minimal disruption. We would highly recommend Glen Kelman and his team for your new or renovated kitchen.

Where is the joinery made? Is it imported from overseas?

Our Joinery is manufactured by our own team locally here in Canterbury.  We have exceptional workmanship and offer a quality product at a competitive price.  We offer a 10 year manufacturers warranty.

How much will it cost?

Each project is unique, we have an option to suit your budget.  Whether it be a Kitchen or Kitchen Facelift OR a Granite, Engineered Stone or High Pressure Laminate Bench-top.  We have a great range of options to help make your new kitchen come to fruition.

How long will it take?

We pride ourselves on efficient turnaround times and minimal disruption.  Refurbishing can be a remarkably quick process because we usually don’t change the existing layout or footprint. It can take from as little as 1 day to install a new kitchen to two-three days to complete a Kitchen Facelift.  If you opt for a solid surface for your bench-top, from time of bench-top template – install can take around 1 week.

How can I get a quote?

As all kitchens and clients are unique, we like to visit you in your home.  Glen will call out and have a chat to you about what you’re wanting to achieve with your Kitchen, the budget you are working to and measure up the space so a quote can be prepared – all without any obligation

Can you arrange the Sub-Trades?

Yes we sure can – we can even project manage it all for you.  We use a trusted pool of sub-contracters that we know will take just as good care of you as we will.

I might need a new oven - can you sort that?

Yes, we can access a range of appliances at really competitive pricing.  We can arrange the Electrician or Gas Fitter too and take care of it all at the same time we are installing the kitchen.

I see alot of white kitchens on Facebook ....do you do other colours too?

Yes, of course we do.  White is just such a neutral and popular choice for many of our clients  – and an easy canvas to add personal touches and pops of colour.

Do you do Bathrooms?

We are all about Kitchens, Laundries, Robes and Vanities.  Anything joinery related we are happy to help with.

Do you have a Showroom where I can see some samples?

Yes we do, call Glen and the team to arrange a time – 0508 695 482

I have a folder of ideas on Pinterest - can you help me mash them all together?

Of course we can and a Pinterest folder gives us a great idea of the look and feel you are going for.  Our experience in both design and manufacturing means we can all put our heads together and make your Pinterest board come to life.
