One size does not fit all

As the engine room of every home, the kitchen assumes great importance in any renovation or new build when it comes to design and aesthetics, expressive as it is of the homeowner’s personal décor style and ‘must-haves’.

Family-run and multi-award-winning Advanced Cabinetry has been part of the new-kitchen scene since 1999, manufacturing kitchen cabinetry in a purpose-built facility and displaying beautiful examples in showrooms in both Geelong and Ballarat.

Owners Clint and Tanya Smith say the business, servicing Geelong and the wider region, has been built on in-house design and best practice, coupled with a strong customer service ethos.

“Our showrooms offer full-sized kitchen displays so customers get a genuine feel for what they could have in their home,” Clint says. “Cabinetry features all the latest hardware and finishes, and can be built to suit all styles – from traditional through to utterly contemporary.

“On our manufacturing side, qualified cabinet makers oversee all operations, with the latest technologies in machinery and processes in place. The facility is pretty impressive in all aspects.

“And as a Registered Building Contractor (CDBL 51288), we provide warranty insurance and are a member of several industry-related groups. This provides our clients with peace of mind, knowing they are dealing with a very professional crew.”

Journey to a dream kitchen

“When working with an Advanced Cabinetry designer, expect to enjoy the journey watching your dream kitchen come to life,” explains Tanya. “When planning arguably the most important – and most-used – room, you want to get it right, with the end result a functional, beautiful space to be enjoyed for years to come.”

Here’s how the journey unfolds:

Meet the designer – in the showroom or your home – to discuss all details

A kitchen concept is created, including a 3D coloured render video walk-through

A formal check measure is carried out

Kitchen is drawn to detail

Contract is prepared

These steps could all take as little as a few weeks to as long as several months, dependent on the need for speed and the stage of the project.

The magic happens and it all comes to full-colour life, with the installation ready between 6-12 weeks dependent on materials selected

The installation manager certifies the job is complete.

“We’re not a DIY or retro-fit service. We custom-make kitchens to individual space and budget, understanding that everyone’s home is different and one size doesn’t actually fit all,” Clint says in conclusion.
