Fox Wardrobes & Cabinetry is your trusted partner for top-quality cabinetry and wardrobes! We understand that every home is unique, and we’re excited to embark on this renovation journey with you. But before our designers step into your home for your measure and quote appointment, there are a few crucial things you should know to ensure a smooth and productive process.

The Ultimate Guide to Your Measure and Quote Appointment

Your Measure and Quote Appointment: We’re excited to embark on this journey with you, but before our designers arrive at your doorstep, there are some important considerations we’d like to share to make the process as smooth as possible.


Qualified Tradesman: Our team of designers comprises highly skilled cabinet makers with years of experience. We’re passionate about crafting quality, stylish, and functional cabinetry that adds value to your home. It’s essential to ensure you’re working with a company that truly understands the trade. When organizing your quote, don’t hesitate to inquire about the qualifications of your salesperson to guarantee that your project is in expert hands.


Budget Considerations: We understand that the price of cabinetry can vary significantly based on style, finishes, and construction. To prepare for your quote, we recommend having a budget in mind. Our on-site cabinet makers will walk you through the differences in finishes, styles, and pricing. This way, you can get the most out of your budget. We aim to provide you with a detailed, on-the-spot estimate, followed by hand-drawn designs and a written quote within 24 hours of your initial design appointment.


Time and Detail of Your Designer: At your measure and quote appointment, our team members allocate a specific amount of time based on your project’s complexity. If you have additional spaces or require quotes for multiple cabinetry items, don’t hesitate to contact our office or designer to extend the appointment duration. We set aside enough time to ensure our designers collect all necessary information, perform a comprehensive needs analysis, and understand your vision. Our 14 years of experience have taught us that this dedicated time is crucial to delivering a quality result. When a designer spends just 15 minutes and fails to inquire about your needs and desires, it’s worth questioning whether they can truly meet your expectations.


Purpose of Cabinetry: When our designer arrives, they’ll want to explore the spaces you’re interested in. They’ll ask a fundamental question: What’s the intended use of the space? Wardrobes aren’t solely for clothing; some serve as storage for linens or household items. Before your appointment, take a moment to consider your preferences. Would you like more hanging space, additional drawers, or more shelves? This forethought will help our designer create a tailored solution.


Samples, Styles, and Finishes: Our designer will arrive equipped with a range of samples, showcasing various styles and finishes. They’ll also share photos of previous projects to help you visualize the potential outcomes. Our cabinetry is customizable to your specifications, and the choice of materials and finishes can impact the cost. If you’ve already done some research by exploring our website or social media, our on-site guidance will be more tailored to your vision and budget.


Demolition and Disposal: If you have existing wardrobes that need removal, there’s no need to worry. Fox Wardrobes can assist with this process. However, if you prefer a DIY approach, you can refer to our online article on the do’s and don’ts of self-removal. It’s important to note that as cabinetmakers, we don’t handle structural work, such as removing walls or creating new spaces. For such tasks, you’ll need a licensed carpenter or builder. Our designers can provide guidance on what needs to be done and when.


Timeline and Strata Rules: Before the project begins, it’s crucial to think about when you’d like it to start. If you live in a unit block, it’s equally important to consult with your strata to understand any specific rules regarding cabinetry installations. Our goal is to ensure that every step of your project proceeds seamlessly and with consideration for your unique circumstances. Our lead time is usually four to six weeks after your deposit is paid. Your designer can advise on current lead times at your appointment.


We look forward to working with you, bringing your cabinetry project to life, and creating space for what you value. A space that’s not just functional but also a reflection of your style and needs.
