From small and challenging to well designed and easy to maintain

After 1 resized

This new kitchen replaces one which was well past it’s sell by date. The challenge was to update the kitchen but also to make it much more ‘user friendly’ and easier to clean after a busy cooking session. The old low level oven was replaced with an eye level grill and easily accessible oven. The small textured tiles with their large areas of grout were replaced with new larger glossy tiles in our customers favourite colour.  Our brief included retaining the existing tiled floor but it became clear that we would have to cut out some cut tiles and replace them with new to meet the footprint of the new kitchen – thankfully, “we have the technology!”

The whole kitchen was replastered (another ‘Artex’ ceiling eliminated!) and a soft shade of green paint applied to the walls with white ceiling and woodwork. There is a lovely little pull out unit to maximise the storage in this challenging space … along with 2 drawer units making access to pans and cooking dishes much easier

Before 1 Before 2

Our customer has kindly allowed us to post a few ‘before’ pictures too – it’s still a challenge to take photographs in such a small space … but thankfully much more enjoyable to cook in day to day apparently.

What a difference a foot and a bit makes!

In a traditional cottage in Steeple Bumpstead –  a cottage with lots of history and charm –  we needed to help the homeowners find a way for their new, modern shower room to work for them (they are a very tall family). Our solution  –  “Head-Up” into the un-used loft space ( with lots and lots of structure and insulation of course!)

Another ‘warm’ customer

Chris completed the installation of a new Worcester Gas Combi Boiler into a bungalow in the village last week – our very warm customer now has peace of mind and a very cosy home

Thank goodness we also replaced the thermostatic valves on her radiators too – at least now she can control the temperature in each room as she reports it to be a lot warmer in there since the system was power-flushed prior to the installation of the new boiler

Another decorating project completed

Happy to report that the “HSL” ( hall, stairs and landing) project in a local customers home has now been completed. Wallpaper was carefully removed from the whole area and then after filling and sanding, repainted in a beautiful warm fresh matt emulsion. Fresh white paintwork on all 11 doors and skirtings helps too!

Bouncing sunlight and spring freshness even on a dull day ….
