This was our opportunity to work with a long established customer of ours for whom we had undertaken a number of kitchens and bathrooms for him personally in the past. He was now looking for us to support him with the updating of one of his rental properties.
The client’s brief was to create a light, airy, modern kitchen with high quality fixtures and fittings to withstand the normal wear and tear of the rental market whilst keeping a keen eye on budget. For this reason we chose Crown LifeStyle Nova J-Profile, white high gloss door, coupled with Minerva Nimbus Grey solid surface worktops complete with Essentials Linear composite sink in Graphite Grey.
The overall lightness of the kitchen was retained by selecting a high gloss 300mm x 100mm tile on the walls and a matt 600mm x 300mm porcelain floor tile. At the same time we took the opportunity to install Sensio LED down lighters in both the ceiling and LED under cabinet lighting.
Appliances were kept to free standing where possible to assist with the inevitable repair and replacement issues of a rental property. All built-in appliances were sourced from the Essentials Premium + range which carry 5 years parts and 2 years labour warranties, thus giving the landlord peace of mind.
The Minerva solid surface worktops are designed to take all the knocks and bumps of everyday wear with the added bonus of being able to be re-polished/repaired at the end of any tenancy thus maintaining the fresh new look.
Sensio under cabinet LED lighting compliments the down lighters in the newly boarded ceiling giving a warm glow to the kitchen from dusk onwards. The client was so pleased with the kitchen that they engaged our services for a full bathroom refurbishment following on from completion of the kitchen works.
