Mr and Mrs Arnold live in Whitchurch, Cardiff. Their original kitchen was only 8 years old but they hated it. It looked jumbled, badly designed and out of date. It did’t take into account the quirky features the room presented. Two bathroom waste pipes in the kitchen needed to be hidden. The previous designer’s ‘solution’ was to ‘hide’ both with more furniture. This wasn’t the Your Space Living approach. We created a false wall with built in book shelves to deal with one pipe and a simple boxing to cover the other pipe. This enabled us to keep all the storage units at base level and eliminate the cluttered feeling of the previous design. The Schuller units in Nova White blended beautifully with the Corian Warm grey worktops. The Corian mixa sink adds a touch of class, brilliant if you wanted to include a hot tap.
Mr and Mrs Arnold’s kitchen leads conveniently off to a small utility room. Due to the open door layout, they requested matching Schuller white cabinets and corian in this area. We needed to build around a pre installed boiler and a pre owned washing machine. This was more difficult than it sounds due to the size and layout of the room. However, Schuller’s versatility was key in creating a beautiful and practical solution.
Bathrooms and cloakrooms aren’t projects that Your Space Living usually take on. However, for certain clients, who express an interest, we do make exceptions. This compact downstairs cloakroom was requested by Mr and Mrs Arnold and the finished room is stunning.
Jo provided us with a first class, personal service for our new kitchen. We had a rough idea of what we wanted but needed some lateral thinking for a couple of problem areas. Jo was excellent in coming up with solutions to our problems that we were really happy with. Her attention to detail throughout all of the project was first class - nothing was too much trouble for her. The team of workmen that she uses were all excellent, very reliable and obviously used to her very detailed instructions and requirements.
Jo seemed to be always available to answer any query, no matter how small. Her attention to detail ensured that the project timings were adhered to throughout every step. We would have no hesitation in using here again or recommending her to anyone else. We love our new kitchen and so does everyone else that has seen it!Mr and Mrs Arnold, Cardiff, South Wales
