My architect & I are just about to finalize the plans for my new house. I want to do a detailed plan of the kitchen now to make the kitchen walls fit the kitchen layout I want, not do it later and have to compromise the layout to fit the walls.
I have a good idea of the layout I want, the problem I have is that standard size cupboards are not the same across kitchen companies – for example: some only have 800mm wide drawers & sink cupboards, others only have 900mm.
We haven't chosen a builder yet. Do some/all builders insists on a particular kitchen company they always use? Or do I shop around & choose a kitchen company? Does the builder install the kitchen or do they leave it to the kitchen company?
If it's up to me to choose any kitchen company (or supply only from Ikea/Bunnings/Mitre10 with builder to install?) how do I choose? There's so many! Any recommendations?

Our builder has a "recommended" cabinet maker, but you can use anyone in town you like. The cabinet maker does our kitchen install. The builder would not install a DIY kitchen but I guess you could negotiate this with some builders for after handover.

You have paid for a new kitchen, not a touched up one. Ask them to re do the damaged panels and correct their poor workmanship. This should not be too hard for them.
