When you’re ready to order, we agree production, delivery and if required, installation timescales with you.  If we are installing for you we will provide templating services.

Payment terms

  • 50% deposit on order confirmation

Templating must be booked in advance. Lead time is often 2 weeks

Your kitchen units should be installed and all your appliances (hob/sink) on site so we can measure up for cut outs.

Timescale – terrazzo

Lead times on terrazzo differ greatly depending on your choice. If your terrazzo is in stock, the lead time is usually 1 – 2 weeks.

  • We keep good stocks of our standard range
  • If we need to order the terrazzo in:
    • Standard 3 – 4 weeks
    • Standard Plus 3 – 4 weeks but can take 8 weeks
    • Luxury – (we keep some in stock) lead times can be longer
  • We will confirm lead times once you have chosen your terrazzo


  • We arrange an installation date to suit you
  • Installation can take between 1 and 2 days depending on specification – 95% are a 1 day installation.
