Important Note: The planner and the online ordering platform are two separate systems, you will need to create two separate login accounts.

After creating your account and logging into the system go to the products menu tab, and clicking on the relevant product you want to order eg. Base, Upper, Pantry etc. Scroll through the images of available products and select the type you are after. This will take you to a section where you can enter all the information for the product. Take care to read over the product descriptions as it contains important information which will assist you to correctly order your products. Complete the product specific information and add it to your shopping cart.

For example when ordering a Standard base cabinet, double doors:

If you know the name of the material you want to order, click the dropdown menu under Material / finish* and scroll down to select the colour. If you are unsure you can select the Material chooser button below the dropdown menu and select your desired colour. Now enter the cabinet dimensions (Height, Width and Depth) you require. Take note that the depth you enter will be excluding the door and/or drawer fronts as the thickness of these might vary depending on your material choice.

Now enter your quantity and click the “Add to cart” button and continue to enter any additionally required products.
