Frequently Asked Question's

Q. What sort of budget should I allow for my kitchen?
A. This is one of the most difficult questions to answer. All we can do it give you a feel for our prices within the market, because every project we undertake is unique and therefore costed individually.

The cost of a project is not directly related to the size of a room, but to the level of cabinetry required, appliances etc within it. The majority of our bespoke kitchen projects fall within a price bracket of around £30,000 - £50,000 +, whereas our German Kitchens are £8,000 - £25,000 + Bedrooms and dressing rooms are around the £15,000 +

The figures are of course based upon an average spend and are purely speculative, but will give you an indication of where we stand within the market.
Q. What are your lead times?
A. Usually 12 weeks from order, although this can vary throughout the year depending upon our workload.
Q. How long does the installation take?
A. Again this can vary depending upon the size of the project, but we average 2 weeks for a kitchen, plus any building alterations, electrical, tiling and painting.
Q. What are your payment terms?
A. Payments are staged with an initial deposit to confirm your order, followed by an interim payment and a final payment upon completion.
Any appliances that are supplied by Matthew James Furniture are to be paid for in full, prior to ordering. [usually 6 weeks before the installation date]
Q. Do we get a copy of the plans and drawings?
A. Plans and drawings are only released once an order has been placed and a deposit paid.
Q. What types of wood do you use?
A. We use only the finest materials available from sustainable sources only and can buy virtually any type of wood. The most popular woods are Tulipwood for painted furniture, Ash, Maple, Walnut, Cherry and European Oak.
Q. Do you hand paint the furniture?
A. Yes. We have a specialist painter who will hand paint your finished kitchen, bedroom or furniture to a colour specified by you from the Farrow & Ball range.
Q. Do you supply appliances?
A. Yes. Matthew James can offer a wide variety of appliances from top of the range companies such as Viking, Wolf and Sub-Zero, as well as many other quality appliances including Falcon, Britannia, Rangemaster, Siemens and more.
Q. Can I source my own appliances?
A. If you search the web, you may be able to find the appliances we recommend slightly cheaper, but our ability to ensure delivery and the correct model at the correct time far outweighs the price difference. We also include a charge for fitting the appliance into your kitchen - a price we will still have to charge you if you order your own appliances.
Q. Do you make any other types of furniture?
A. Yes. We undertake projects for virtually any room in your home, such as, home cinema furniture, studies, dining tables etc.
Q. How far do you travel?
A. The majority of our work is within Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire and within a 20-25 mile radius of our base. Although further distances would be considered.
