Fitted Furniture at Christmas

This time of year is the busiest time for many companies and for those involved with the supply and installation of Kitchens and Fitted Furniture it is no different. However, it can be incredibly frustrating for both staff and customers alike when you leave planning your new kitchen or bedroom to the last minute and start contacting companies at the beginning of December, wanting furniture to be installed before Christmas.

Whilst we do everything we can to keep our lead times as short as possible, the minimum time from place of order with us, to installation is 4 weeks. As everything is made-to-measure, we don’t keep a stock of items and this is the quickest we can receive items. Add in the length of time from Design Consultation to place of order and the lead time is at 6 weeks, without taking into consideration how busy we are and whether we have installers available within that time period.

So when should you start the process of choosing your kitchen or fitted furniture so that it is nicely installed before Christmas and you don’t have any stress in the weeks leading up to the big day? Well, we would suggest that September or October are good times to start the process. Early enough that you don’t have to rush any of the key decisions but not too early that you are waiting forever after the decisions have been made to place the order (assuming of course that you want the items installed in December).

So, if you haven’t already placed an order for your new fitted furniture or your new kitchen, why not browse through our brochures now, then wait until the house has calmed down after Christmas, book a Design Consultation in January, place the order in February and have your lovely new furniture installed in March. Just in time for Easter…
