The approach to this project was a full renovation of the existing kitchen. The client requested modernisation to the services and installation of a ground floor toilet.
We start with removal of the existing kitchen units, and make safe the water, gas and electrical connections.
The flooring tiles are lifted and carted away. We then screed the subfloor with a 3:1 strong mix of sharp sand mortar to create a level floor to work from.
Before we begin the installation of the kitchen services, we removed a load bearing wall and installed a high performance bi fold door. Case study can be found here.
Next step was to reposition the kitchen side window. The window required lifting to ensure the trim was not below the newly installed worktop units.
The customers chose a tewksbury blue style kithcen, supplied by Howden’s joinery. They style of the kitchen was traditional, and the colors presented a very classy tone. Mixed with newly installed modern appliances the look was very balanced.
We then install the first fix services, plumbing for the modified kitchen layout. Gas services for the newly located range master cooker and electrical services for the appliances.
The cooker unit was to be located within two existing chimneybreasts columns. This presented a challenge during the install as the maximum width we could take the chimney opening to within 10mm of the width of the range cooker.
The next challenge on this kitchen was installation of the cooker extractor hood. Once we had installed the cooker unit between the chimney legs, we then attempted to hide the bulk of the cooker hood within the existing chimney bulk. I must admit, this was a very dusty part of the project.
