TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE CHARM COMBINED WITH MOD-CONS
When Louise and Tony Armour's old family home began to show its age, they called upon Paal to help them replicate the traditional style, although with the convenience of modern fittings. For sentimental reasons, the family wanted their new home to look like the old one, and Paal was able to help.
Customers benefit from in-house kitchen production
Paal kitchen workshop manager Brian Coles: "In-house production is a big advantage for our customers."
Paal designs and manages its kitchen production in-house rather than outsourcing the work. This means unmatched responsiveness to the needs of customers.
"The advantage for customers is that they can see right from the start the range of kitchens that are available and how they can modify them," said Brian Coles, manager of Paal's kitchen workshop.
"Firstly, in the display home showroom, our housing consultants will work with customers to produce a kitchen plan that is easily altered onscreen to meet their wishes."
After the chosen design is turned into a workshop drawing, Paal emails it to the customer, who sends back any desired changes. Paal then prepares a plan for final approval.
"Working closely in this way means that any possible issues are picked up and resolved early, rather than becoming a problem that must be fixed when the kitchen is actually being installed."
Brian has produced home kitchens for most of his working life, including 19 years as a Paal contractor and the past two years in-house.
"Managing the process ourselves means total control over the design of the kitchens and the quality of the components, which is a big advantage for both us and our customers.
"We help by pre-building the drawers and any specialised cupboards before dispatching them as part of our delivery of the kit internals. The remainder of the components are left in flat-pack form for the customer to assemble."
Controlling production also means that Paal is able to incorporate the latest styles in kitchen design, including soft-close drawers and cupboards, which are now the expected standard.
"Another trend is to provide cupboard inserts such as wire baskets, slide-outs and spice racks," Brian said.
