we do Hassle-Free
Kitchen Design from concept to Renovation
With a project portfolio as extensive as ours, you would expect that we have a highly refined design and building process. At Large’s we guarantee those expectations are met, accompanied by exceptional customer service, ensuring you a hassle-free experience every time!
Our entire process, from initial contact and idea generation to the installation itself, has been optimised and streamlined over the years to give you the best possible results.
As qualified project managers, we have the capability to work directly with you as your principal contractors, quoting off plans and arranging additional tradesmen as necessary. Alternatively, we can complete work under the management of a building team of your choice.
No matter how big or small your kitchen renovation is, we promise competitive quotes and outstanding workmanship. And we have rarely gone over schedule in more than 70 years’ of industry dedication!
Our Kitchen Design Process:
We’ll visit you (wherever possible) or you can visit us at our factory to discuss your ideas in person, from the layout and colour scheme to the finer details of fittings etc. This can be as rough or specific as you like. The aim is simply to get to know you and start forming a mental picture of how you want the finished product to look and function.
Using our notes from the initial meeting, we’ll prepare a rough design as a starting point. Nothing’s locked in at this stage. This is simply your chance to get a feel for how things will look when completed.
Using your sketches as a base template, we’ll discuss all your options with you. We can now start refining the details, such as finishes and materials. We’ll take as much time as is needed to make sure you’ve had as much input as you want.
4. Quote & Drawings
Once we’ve together decided on the parameters of the job, we’ll prepare a written quote. When you accept the quote, we’ll deliver our draftsman’s drawings, ready for manufacturing. If there are any more changes, now’s the time to let us know!
We’ll custom-manufacture everything that needs to be built, and order any pre-built items. Everything is quality controlled before, during and after this process to ensure we’ve got the perfect fit.
Now it’s time for the installation. We’ll have arranged for all the necessary tradesmen, unless you have someone else in mind who you’ve worked with before. If there are other components (e.g. glass splashbacks or granite or reconstituted stone countertops) that can only be measured and fit after installation has started, we’ll fabricate or arrange them now.
Congratulations, your project is finished! We’ll make sure everything’s cleaned up and ready for use before signing off and leaving you to enjoy the finished product.
A few things to consider for your Kitchen Design
Dealing directly with architects, designers, project managers and principal contractors, our communicative approach ensures everything goes to plan, from start to finish.
We can quote directly from plans upon request. Where necessary, we can also provide detailed drawings and designs ourselves.
We are committed to doing everything in our power to meet your project in the scheduled time frame. We have more than 70-year track record of very rarely being late. You can rely on us to deliver your project on time and on budget.
We have extensive experience working in heritage-listed buildings, and will protect and preserve as many of the original heirloom materials as possible.
At the point when the vast majority consider a kitchen rebuild, they have a comparative item as a top priority, proficient evaluation treated steel apparatuses, rock ledges and a colossal island.
While there’s surely nothing amiss with this vision, it’s critical to remember that it isn’t your only criteria.
Instead of simply meeting business as usual, think about how your family will really utilise the kitchen.
Sufficient lighting is needed for various aspects of your kitchen. The last thing you need is to endeavour while squinting for all the more light.
Therefore, kitchen lighting is one of the most important features. Attempt to imagine yourself working in the space while thinking about where to include lighting.
Obviously, you’ll need to incorporate some light by the stove, close to the sink and over a kitchen island.
Commercial Kitchen Design
At Large’s, we have years of experience designing and installing kitchens for commercial premises including restaurants, canteens, and offices. Commercial kitchens should be functional, space-efficient, and hygienic, ensuring that staff and visitors can prepare food and refreshments safely and efficiently with minimal disruption to coworkers and operations.
Our team of expert commercial kitchen designers has years of experience designing bespoke kitchens for businesses and offices around Rockhampton. If you’re looking for professionals who can help you at every stage of your commercial kitchen fit-out, from design through to installation and finishing touches, contact us today.
The kitchen is the heart of a home – but it could also be the heart of your business, especially when you work in the hospitality industry.
This is where you’ll make your money; a kitchen that serves your needs, your workers’ needs, and your customers’ needs will carry you towards success.
A commercial kitchen must handle a flood of visitors during any mealtime, and a lot of this might be down to how your cooks hold up under pressure, but they should have a kitchen that works for them.
On top of this, though your kitchen most likely has a specialty, it also has variety, meaning you require the space and layout to accommodate the different types of food that people would be cooking. Otherwise, cooks and chefs may slow down due to an inefficient kitchen design.
With our quality fittings and eye for detail, you can be confident that we will provide you with the most efficient and effective kitchen layout. We know what commercial kitchens must have to work at their best, and we bring this knowledge to every job we take.
New Kitchens Rockhampton
With years of experience designing and installing commercial kitchens around Rockhampton, we know exactly what considerations need to be made when designing the perfect commercial kitchen.
There are lots of decisions that you will need to make during the design process relating to the aesthetics, function, and materials in your commercial kitchen. We can help you to make decisions that are right for your business, whatever your goals are.
Some considerations you might need to make before your commercial kitchen design begins are:
- What local regulations do you need to follow to ensure that your kitchen meets Australian hygiene standards?
- Who will be using your kitchen: kitchen staff, employees, or visitors? Do the aesthetics of your kitchen matter?
- What materials should be used for worktops and cabinets? Is your priority hygiene and durability or does style matter too?
- How much kitchen storage space do you need? Do we need to plan for expanding capacity in the future? Where will utensils be stored?
- What appliances does your commercial kitchen need?
- How can different areas be separated for hygiene purposes; for example, keeping pot washing separate from food preparation?
- How is food served from the kitchen, and is there a way to make this more efficient in your kitchen design?
- Which extra elements can we include to make your kitchen easier to keep clean and tidy, such as splashbacks?
We have helped many commercial clients to design efficient, hygienic kitchens for restaurants, offices, and canteens across Rockhampton and surrounding areas. With our help, you can be confident that your commercial kitchen design is the best it can be, and meets the needs of your staff and customers for years to come.
Why You Need a Large’s Custom Kitchen
Commercial or residential, you will find no shortage of benefits when you opt for a bespoke kitchen.
First and foremost, your cooking will taste even better, thanks to quality fittings that last for years that can assist and enhance the flavour in everything people make.
At Large’s, our custom kitchens will give you new and durable ovens, cooktops, taps, and more, all from high-quality materials. There’s also the obvious – you can have a kitchen that adapts to how you cook rather than the other way around, along with a choice of how to organise your cabinetry.
Custom cabinets are at the core of a bespoke kitchen; this means you can have them in the size you want, and wherever in the room that works best, for you or your family to get the best results.
If you sometimes struggle to reach the top shelves, you could have cabinets that are easier for everyone to use. You can even position the cabinets based on what you’ll need to get from them and when.
A bespoke kitchen requires perfect synergy – meaning every single element has to work in tandem with one another to provide you and the whole home with the cooking and dining experience of your dreams.
Custom kitchens will shine even after years of use, helping your house stand out both to visitors and potential buyers.
The benefits go beyond just the room itself; for a residential kitchen, it could substantially increase the property’s value on the market. Buyers always want a good look at the kitchen – property experts recommend that you make sure it looks good in advance, and this is far easier when it has the expert crafting of a Large’s designs.
Our collaborative planning stages will guarantee that you are not the only one who ends up adoring the final product; your kitchen could easily be the envy of all of Rockhampton.
