Our Process

From dream to reality

To achieve the kind of customer satisfaction that Sola Kitchens has attained means taking infinite care of the smallest details of your needs. The process has several stages:

Free Initial Design Consultation

Your kitchen journey starts with a free Initial Design Consultation. The consultation takes around 2 hours where you and your Sola Kitchens designer will discuss your kitchen layout in detail, including the choice of storage, worktops, appliances and the budget for the project. At the end of the meeting, your designer will arrange another free appointment, the Kitchen Design Presentation.

At the Kitchen Design Presentation, your designer will present the initial design proposal, illustrated with detailed plans, elevations and computer generated graphic (CAD) illustrations to enable you to visualise your new kitchen. You will also be given a detailed quotation for the kitchen.

If you wish your designer to make any additional amendments to the design, prior to the final commissioning of the kitchens, a £1000 drawing fee is required. This also enables you to take all the plans and drawings with you.

Commissioning the kitchen

To commission the project, a 25% deposit is required. When the kitchen has been commissioned, we will finalise all the details of the kitchen design, including choosing work surfaces, handles and all the details of your kitchen layout. When you are completely satisfied with the design, your kitchen will be carefully handmade by skilled Swedish craftsmen who build your cupboards out of solid wood in their workshop in southern Sweden. The cabinetry takes approximately 8-10 weeks to build.

Surveys and schedules

Once the kitchen has been commissioned, a detailed site survey will be carried out before the kitchen order is finalised. If you have other builders involved, for example if you are doing a kitchen extension, we will liaise with your builder and provide them with detailed plans and service schedules to establish the location of gas, electricity and plumbing services etc to ensure that the project runs seamlessly.


The installation of your kitchen will take 2-4 weeks depending on the size of the kitchen, the choice of worktops and splashbacks and whether the kitchen is hand painted. Sola Kitchens’ own installers will expertly install your kitchen and your personal designer will oversee the installation to make sure that everything goes smoothly. We ensure that all our kitchens are installed to a perfect finish and we do not sign off a kitchen until the very last handle has been fitted and you are 100% happy.

"A fabulously slick service from start to finish. The product is pure quality and Sofia made the process of a new kitchen an enjoyable one. I would thoroughly recommend Sola Kitchens."
