It is the most interesting part of the whole development process. It is the stage where we innovate and present different concepts for your new kitchen product design for review and early stage development. Our design team provides technical and creative ideas to make your product appealing whilst bearing in mind the necessary production methods and materials. We arrange innovative workshops with our potential clients and this is one way of combining our experience and knowledge with your vision for the new kitchen product. It helps to shape your concept using our expertise and your thinking to get the maximum value for the end consumer. A commercial viability assessment might be a key part of this phase depending on the concept as well. Keep on reading to get into more details on the concept development part of the overall process.
The prototyping of the kitchen product ideas is often dependent on the type of material being simulated. Some products need less time to develop their prototypes compared to others with the integration of electronics making this much more complex and expensive. Overall, prototyping is the most crucial part of the product development phase. Moreover, it makes sure that your new kitchen idea has been fully validated before moving towards production.
The ideal balance is to source the product from a supplier that offers quality and good communication along with competitive prices. Reducing your product cost also reduces the cost of shipping and import taxes. For most of the time, sourcing your products from China is often the necessary choice.
Manufacturing your kitchen product entails detailed specifications once your idea is finalised. In addition to that, this stage consists of some other important elements like quality control, product packaging, secure delivery to the customers’ doorstep. Moreover, warning labels, as well as instruction manuals, must also be considered during the manufacturing process.
This stage comes at the end and is considered the most critical stage of the kitchen product development process. This stage plays a key role in establishing your business. Once you are done with the designing, prototyping, and manufacturing of your new design kitchen idea, you need to know the art of presenting your goods in an engaging way to grab the attention of potential customers. Often you must be able to communicate effectively and to gain the trust of buyers.
You can approach retailers and ask them to place your items in their stores but you will have to show some samples or prototypes very close to your actual product.
Below are just a few of the different Kitchen products that we have designed and prototyped. We also source manufacturers and can guide our clients through to tooling and production, if required.
