Refresh or replace?

Do you need a new kitchen? Or do you just want a new kitchen?

Either’s good with me of course, because I sell kitchens. But it’s always worth thinking before you rip out a perfectly good kitchen and begin again about whether it really is the units and tops you want rid of, or whether just replacing appliances, or redecorating the walls, would give a pretty good kitchen a new lease of life.

Your floor, too, could make a huge difference. And once you replace the lighting with new, low energy eco or LED downlighters, the place will feel different anyway.

Of course, once you’ve relit, repainted and replaced appliances, you’re going to be even more annoyed by the old units and worktops.

So you’d better give me a ring anyway. 07973 313983.

Taking out a wall

Construction, Design, Family, Floors

Trying to work out the best way to do your new kitchen, and still got a wall between it and a sitting room?

Get it out! Seriously. If you can live with the mess and have the budget to do a building project (and it’s not that much more work anyway if you’re going to rip out your kitchen), get a decent builder in with a couple of hefty steel joists and open up your living space.

It’ll improve the light, improve the family feel of the house, give you masses more options in designing and choosing a new kitchen and you’ll love it from the second it’s finished.

If you’re wondering if this would work in your house, give me a call and I’ll put you in touch with my favourite builder.

These guys are fantastic. They do a really good job, they’re not expensive and they’ll do all the prep work as well ready for your new kitchen to go in.
