Price of Kitchen Cabinets in Nigeria
We would be using a standard kitchen space with dimensions 3600 mm x 3000 mm (client’s available space) for this costing.
In calculating the price of kitchen cabinets in Nigeria, the following process is done below.
- The client provides the dimension of the available space. In most cases, the architect visits the site to get accurate measurements directly.
- A 3-dimensional (3D) sketch of the proposed kitchen space is sent to the client. This design can be reviewed a limited number of times.
- A quotation would be sent.
For this case sample, dimensions were measured at the client’s site and a draft 3D rendering was sent to the client. The approved image is shown below.
After this is done, the next step is to generate a quotation. For this job, view a detailed quotation below.
