Mr and Mrs Baines were building a considerable extension to the rear of their Cardiff home. They were creating an open plan environment and wanted a kitchen that would complement this very modern way of living. We were consulted at the planning stage. That enabled us to have influence over some of the more practical aspects of the build in regards to the best position for the window and bifold doors as to not hinder the overall design layout. Clean lines and a smooth finish were priorities to Mr and Mrs Baines. They also wanted very neutral colours with the hope of making the kitchen blend into the overall structure. Additionally, we were tasked with lighting design, the structure around the “hidden” chimney breast and the layout of the utility room which needed to accommodate the boiler, cylinder and laundry. They were delighted with their handleless Schuller kitchen and the worktop by Dekton “Zenith” was the ultimate finishing touch.
Mr and Mrs Baines had a chimney breast that protruded into the kitchen area. This would have been a real problem for many kitchen manufacturers. Not so with Schuller. The wide range of cabinet sizes enabled us to deliver a unit that could be incorporated into the structure of the wall. The finished result is stunning, with the larder, ovens and fridge freezer all flush with the surface of the wall, hiding the chimney breast in the process.
Mr and Mrs Baines extension was all about spacious, open plan living. They wanted to create a light, expansive area that would be practical for family living and entertaining large groups of visitors. It’s fair to say they succeeded with their plans.
We were lucky enough to come across Jo at Your Space Living after a recommendation from our architect and what a stroke of luck we had! We did the usual look around at all the high street kitchen retailers and there was no comparison with the level of service we had with Jo and the quality of the bespoke kitchen she provided us with, at a really competitive price. Jo had that eye for detail we were looking for which gave us real confidence we would have a stunning kitchen at the end. Jo had innovative ideas in order to make the finished product look great. Jo was always on hand to give us peace of mind if we had a query, her communication and organisation were excellent. She delivered exactly what she planned on time, organised the other trades (electrics, builders and plumbers) to make sure all went smoothly. The installation team were fantastic, very efficient and tidy which makes a real difference when your house has been a building site for so long and finally getting back to normal. We really cant speak highly enough of the Your Space Living team, we've been recommending to everyone we speak to. Words to describe Jo and her products: Perfectionist, super organised, friendly, great value. Thank you so much for all your help and your always welcome for a cuppa when your passing, Rwth and Stu xMr and Mrs Baines, Cardiff, South Wales
