Having lived with the kitchen as supplied by the builder since buying the property new they had finally had enough of its poor and inadequate design that provided only a basic L shape layout, no dining area and only a single built under oven.
At our initial design brief meeting it became clear that the Gardner’s wanted more light in the kitchen, more useable work surface, more storage, high level built in cooking appliances, an island with somewhere to sit and socialise but not to compromise on the aesthetic which was all important.
They liked the whole look of the Second Nature 1909 in frame painted style but were concerned about price.
We suggested breaking into the pitched roof and introducing a long bank of Velux’s to create a much lighter, airier feel to the whole room. We also suggested removing the existing radiator and replacing it with a plinth heater thus freeing up an otherwise difficult to use wall.
To keep cost down We also suggested using the Second Nature Milbourne painted foil wrapped shaker door in contrasting colour ways shown.
We created the desired look but keeping within the budget. As you can see from the photos, the room is much lighter.
We were planning to renew our kitchen and had already visited some of the usual DIY stores to get ideas and estimates.
We then went along to Rugby Fitted Kitchens to see what they could offer and were immediately impressed by the showroom; The variety of kitchen styles and design ideas on display were inspirational and brought the prospect of a new kitchen to life, far better than flicking through brochures.
Trevor understood our requirements and guided us through the design process suggesting options for the cupboard configurations and fitments that maximised our storage space, in addition to which the pricing for the Neff appliances was second to none either matching or bettering the best buys I could find online.
The installation was expertly undertaken by Daniel & Daniel (Yes they really do have the same Christian names!!) and nothing was too much trouble for them.
We are absolutely delighted with the finished product and would have no hesitation in recommending RFK to our friends.”
