Our Approach

1. Consultation

2. Design Review

3. Booking Deposit

Book an appointment to come into our kitchen showroom and meet with one of our designers who will go through your needs and lifestyle to develop a design that is in tune with how you live. We will explore your preferred kitchen styles, accessories and appliances during your initial consultation. Then our designers will develop a preliminary outline design to meet with your specific needs and budget.

Our designers will contact you to make a follow up appointment in our showroom so we can share and review the preliminary design with you. We will discuss ALL the costs of the various options you are considering and put a final quote together.

Once the kitchen design and costs are agreed, we will prepare a contract for the ‘construction and installation’ of your new kitchen. At this stage each party commits to the project and the price and specification agreed. You will pay a booking deposit to confirm your purchase.

4. Site Survey

5. Kitchen Installation

6. Granite Worktop Installation

We will arrange a suitable time to call to your address to assess the room and confirm all measurements. During this survey, we will identify where the electrical sockets and extraction opening should be located in your kitchen for your electrician and plumber.

Our Kitchen installers will fit your kitchen cabinets and worktops over a 1 to 3 day period. This time will vary depending on the size of your kitchen but the majority of kitchens are installed within two days.

If you have ordered granite worktop, we will arrange with the worktop manufacture to visit your home, scan the worktop area and build out a highly precise virtual replica of the area your worktop will be installed in. They will return to install the worktop within ten days from the time of template.

About Us

why fitzgerald kitchens

Fitzgerald Kitchens was set up in 1987 by two brothers, Des and Eamonn Fitzgerald. They started from humble beginnings in Hacketstown, Co.Carlow in a tiny shed behind the local Curates house. Their father, Jack Fitzgerald operated in Hacketstown from 1974 making custom built furniture with Des and Eamonn’s older brothers who used the business to finance their college education.

In 1988, Des and Eamonn moved the business 6 miles down the road to Tinahely, Co Wicklow and upgraded to a 3000 square foot facility, and in 1996, bought their own premises in the centre of the village. It wasn’t long before they quickly outgrew that and so they built a purpose built factory in Lugduff on the outskirts of Tinahely in 2004 where they have operated from ever since.
