Personalised service from go to whoa
Wellington based Pridex Kitchens offers its customers a fully personalized service from start to finish, says Margriet Lynch who owns the business with husband Mike.
“Our customers enjoy the continuity of the same person assisting them through the whole process – from initial design to finished kitchen.
This means that we can truly assess their unique requirements and needs and deliver a kitchen that meets their expectations and lifestyle,” Margriet says..
“We recognise that every home is unique and therefore every kitchen we produce must be specially designed to suit the particular home.’
Pridex Kitchens has been proudly designing, delivering and installing high quality kitchens in the Wellington region since 1998.
In fact the company has now installed well over 2000 kitchens meaning customers benefit from a lot of expertise.
Mike, a trained industrial designer, inspects the plans of every kitchen that is designed by the in-house design team and it is this personal attention to detail that makes the difference, says Margriet.
“The process starts with a meeting with the customer to find out what they desire from their kitchen,” says Margriet.
“For example some people may just want a simple kitchen to make a cup of coffee while others want a full entertainer’s kitchen with all the bells and whistles,” she says.
“There may also be other needs – does the customer want a place to hang around with the kids when they come home from school or to hold dinner parties with friends? “Or perhaps a place to store an entire collection of cookbooks and gadgets? This initial design and consultation process along with a quotation is
offered free of charge.
Three dimensional imagery helps customers to visualize how their finished kitchen will look.”
Once the design has been decided Pridex Kitchens then gets the kitchen manufactured in New Zealand using lazer edge, an innovative adhesivefree laser edging technology, which provides a superior finish.
Pridex Kitchens can take care of the whole building project by organising builders and sub-contractors. The company can also provide the right appliances for the project.
Margriet says flexibility is also important so if the customer prefers to organise their own contractors or source their own kitchen appliances they are free to do so.
Located at 105 Thorndon Quay, Pridex Kitchens offers a large showroom displaying four complete kitchens demonstrating a range of products and price ranges of kitchens. There is also a computer display of previous kitchens completed by the company.
Margriet says keeping up with the latest products and technological advances is an important aspect of the business.
For example, the company has installed a blue tooth device in a kitchen that, once placed in the cabinetry, turns it into an amplifier. A vacuum cleaner that is built into the bottom of the cabinetry and at the push of a button sucks up any debris that has been swept within range is another of the latest devices.
But it is simpler trends that are currently popular – stone bench tops and use of white and stainless steel – giving a modern, clean look.
The Wellin gton region is currently buoyant with plenty of projects on the go and Pridex Kitchens aims to continue to deliver designer kitchens that uniquely fit the lifestyle and homes of its customers.
