Contemporary Family Kitchen

This family of four wanted an open plan kitchen incorporating a long island and dining space for 6, with a family TV and seating area as well. Large bi-fold doors would ensure external and internal areas were merged. The look they wanted was modern, with a muted colour scheme of greys and white, ensuring a minimalistic feel was achieved.
Also on their wish list was a new utility room, tall units with an integrated American style fridge freezer, a pantry area to hide the kettle and coffee machine, and a project manager!
This was a back to brick, full refurbishment – the dividing wall between the existing kitchen and dining room needed removing, in addition to the wall between the kitchen and garage to construct brand new spaces. Existing doors and windows needed removing and bricking up, with the installation of new bi-fold doors, a new boiler, electrics and replastering.
The family shopped around for kitchens and services but found GKC to be the right choice for them based on the professional design service and the full project management service offered.

“GKC provided a timeline for the works which would take around 4 weeks and provided us with daily activities and key milestones that would happen at the outset of the job, including things like turning the water off for the new boiler installation, removal of doors and turning off of power for new electrical systems. The quality of the samples and the finished kitchen was also to a high standard and the units weren’t just standard off the shelf items, Neil measured the space and the kitchen units were made to measure and constructed to fit exactly”

The communication throughout the process was excellent and if anything needed discussing or the sequence of tasks needed to change, Neil would raise this as soon as possible and kept us in the loop with what was going on. The project was completed on time with very few snags, which were closed out within 1 or 2 days. Overall we are extremely happy with the finished kitchen and have since been enjoying the space as a family and can not recommend GKC highly enough. The service from Neil & Carole and their team of tradesmen before, during and after the project was second to none.
