Project Method

Philip will be happy to discuss your project with no obligation or cost to you. After an initial chat on the phone or by email, he will make a visit to run through any ideas you have, and suggest design ideas. Within ten to fourteen days he will return with scale drawings and an accurate costing of the project. Brochures for appliances or specific products are supplied along with timber samples. Most people need time to consider the proposals, so there is no pressure to commit at this stage. Once a decision to place an order has been made, the design is discussed in greater detail and final drawings produced.

As every commission is made specifically for the individual, time and attention is paid to material selection. Be it the particular board of timber to be used, to a style of handle or hinge. It is this attention that makes a completed project by Philip Heaton so unique and distinctive. If the project is a kitchen, Philip can project manage the whole scheme, introducing an architect and all the trades required. Alternatively, if the client has preferred trades people, then Philip is always happy to work alongside them, providing all necessary drawings and information.

As each project is tailored to the individual, it can also be fitted to a particular budget. Over the last few years, kitchens have ranged from £8,000 - £45,000. The average cost including installation, granite surfaces and VAT is £25,000.

Again, furniture varies enormously in cost and can be made to suit most realistic budgets. A 2.4m long x 2m tall maple breakfront bookcase with two glazed doors and an integrated wine fridge was recently made for just over £5,000.
