What’s more, we’re able to bring expertise from the wide range of other services we offer to the job of designing and fitting beautiful kitchens. Is it time for you to get a new kitchen? There are some circumstances where it’s definitely advisable to invest in a new kitchen.

In fact, here are a few reasons why you should consider a new kitchen:

Adding value to your property with a kitchen renovation

Even though your property is your home it still holds some kind of value. If your keen on having the value of your home as high as it can be then a kitchen renovation is for you! If you’re planning on selling your property in the next twelve months, then it’s definitely time to take advantage of our kitchen design and kitchen installation services. Even if you’re not planning on selling your property soon, it can be worth looking at Ideas For A New Kitchen in a new kitchen anyway. A well-designed kitchen that is installed with care will still look fabulous and add value to your property years after it is fitted.

Dealing with a damaged kitchen

Has your old kitchen sustained serious fire or flood damage? In this situation, having the old kitchen repaired is likely to cost a substantial amount of money and take a considerable length of time. You may, therefore, wish to take the opportunity to have an entirely new kitchen fitted. If you choose to spend your time and money on having repairs made, you’ll just get your old kitchen back. In contrast, if you choose to spend that time and money on having a new one fitted, you could substantially improve your home environment with a wonderful new space.

Home Remodelling

If you’re in the process of improving your entire home environment, it’s vital not to overlook the kitchen. The kitchen is one of the most practical and important rooms in your house and its appearance can seriously affect the way the rest of your home looks and feels. Don’t pass up the opportunity to have a new kitchen fitted when conducting house renovations!

You should certainly have a new kitchen fitted in any of the circumstances we’ve listed here. However, that doesn’t mean you should refrain from investing in one at all other times; if you want to have a new kitchen fitted for any reason, feel free to contact us today!

Wallpapering for dummies

By | Decoration | No Comments

Wallpapering is a task that may seem easy to someone who has basic knowledge of home DIY but a lot of the job depends on the type of paper you’re going to put up. When it comes to plain or lining paper it’s relatively straightforward. But for patterned paper, keeping it consistent over the whole surface area is a tricky task, even for those who have experience with the job. When it comes to plain or lining paper it’s relatively straightforward.

What should you consider?

There are a lot of things to consider when wallpapering. The walls’ shape, features in the walls such as door frames and many more, are things that you will need to keep your eye on when wallpapering.

Another is the state of the actual wall. Once you remove the current wallpaper you will notice that it’s either smooth or it has little bumps which will show if you don’t get rid of them.

Is a “reasonable” job good enough?

We take our work very seriously so the word “reasonable” doesn’t even come into our vocabulary.

A professional can make wallpapering look easy, but that is a skill that takes years of training or practice to get good at. Since wallpapering adds the finishing touch to home decorating projects, it’s important that it’s done right. By all means, consider wallpapering a small room yourself to get in some practice first, and keep things simple by using plain paper. If the renovations are any more extensive, however, we always recommend getting in the professionals. To find out more about our wallpapering services, please give us a call.
