SH-ABC - most common brand used in China. In other word, most hardware you see in Fast East is producing by this factory. 80,000 test but really price sensitive. Visit http://www.sh-abc.cn/


All 4 brands come with similar products. For instance, self closing slide, blum motion slide and hinges, metal drawer side and organizers. And they all carry similar warranty which is two years.

For instance, Teak, Birdnestwood, Brazil Rosewood, Bird eye maple and so on.

However, please note that our kitchen quotation usually do not included the price of handle and knobs.

STEP 4 - FLOOR PLAN
In order to eliminate any hassles and having the best result, Comodo Living will need the complete floor plan on each projects. 

At most cases, developer or their architect will have the kitchen specification and drawing ready. Since Comodo Living produce all the products from China. Our North America team will need the floor plan in order to re-confirm all the on-site measurement. On the other hand, our associates need all the details to produce our in-house drawing.

Last of all, it will help to verify with final count on ordering quality. We will work a lot closer with the General Contrator if we always have the UPDATE plans.
STEP 5 - DESIGN & 3-D DRAWING (optional)
This is optional and depending on client. Comodo Living is capable to design the kitchen set and producing the layout in three dimension drawing. However, we definite prefer to work with the architect and designer. 

On the other hand, once the client approved on the quote and contract signed. Comodo Living will generate the 3 dimension drawing as SHOP DRAWING for confirmation with designer or architect. 



             
STEP 6 - SHOP DRAWING
In every kitchen projects, Comodo Living will require the manufacturer to provide its own shop drawing to verify with our 3 - D drawing. Designer or architect does not need to review such drawing, it is going to be done by our kitchen expert and guide the manufacturer.





             
STEP 7 -PROTTYPE & PRODUCTION
After the 3-D drawing approval by the client and our controller sign off the shop drawing with the factory. Factory will first produce one complete set of prototype to confirm all the details. 

It is desirable if the project principle and their designer to confirm the prototype in China. If there is sufficient time, Comodo Living can also ship the prototype back to North America for approval (extra 30 days).

Once the prototype sign off and approved. Production will start immediately. Extra parts and spare units will first produce and shipped. The whole order will be produced all in one batches and store in China. But shipment will be arranged according to the schedule given by the General Contractor. Comodo Living will ensure there is no delay during the whole process and ship just in time. 

Different arrangement can be set based on the request from General Contractor.
