Kitchens In Kent

We love fitting kitchens in Kent and this is a picture of a recently completed project near Kings Hill, West Malling.

 

From start to finish this kitchen re fit took us just two weeks to complete, which is exactly what we promised our client as it was in December and getting close to Christmas.

Preparation and attention to detail is always important to achive the best results possible, this project was no exeption and was finished to an impeccably high standard.

 

 

Day one is obviously all about the removal of old cupboards, worktops, wall and floor tiling,  we also had to take down the old ceiling and coving to accommodate the electrical work and new downlights.

 

 

These pictures are of day two, taken after the first fix electrics and first fix plumbing, as you can see it looks quite a mess but this is the blank canvas we like to start with and can now begin to put everything back together.

 

 

A new pipe casing from the upstairs sevices was constructed as we decided the old one wasn't up to scratch.

 

 

While the ceiling was open we were able to check the existing pipework and some repairs were carried out.

 

By the end of day three the new ceiling board is up and the walls are prepared ready for the plasterer.

 

 

Day four the ceiling and walls were plastered and the room really starts to take shape.

 

 

Two days drying time with a de-humidifier and fan heaters.

 

 

Time for nice new 600x300 porcelain floor tiles, laid wall to wall in a herringbone style and by the end of day seven the plaster is dry enough to recieve the first two of three coats of paint.

 

 

Day eight, second fix electrics, nice chrome socketts, switches and downlighters

and third coat of emulsion to ceiling and walls.

 

 

We were asked to make the lighting nice and bright, so nine new downlighters were installed.

 

 

All on shedule and ready for the kitchen fitter

 

 

Days nine through to fourteen is all about fitting new units, we left the fitter to get on with things and these pictures dont really do justice to the finish that he was able to achive.

 

 

Nearly done, just the glass tiles behind the hob to do, all the plumbing is finished and appliances are working.

 

This was a complicated design with curved units, worktops, cornice and lighting pelmets.

 

 

All finished, well nearly, we are going to put some more glass tiles up around the extractor as we think it will look more balanced if this is tiled as well.

 

 

Many thanks to all of the fantastic tradesmen involved in this re fit,

and many thanks to a wonderful client who just let us get on with no fuss whatsoever.
