When it came time for a contemporary update to their home, our clients chose to upgrade the heating and electrics as well. A wise choice and the energy savings will pay dividends. In this instance they took it to the next level with smart integrated systems for lighting operation, zoned heating controls as well as monitoring new security cameras, installed for their safety and peace of mind. Sometimes simply relocating a doorway can make all the difference and the entrance to this home has had the full treatment with the living room door moved down the hall and a beautiful new bannister to the stairs. But it’s the new under-stairs storage working hard to improve practicalities in this space. The stylish oak handrail creates a beautiful feature, set off by the fresh finish painting of the replaced newel post, bannister, skirt, architrave and doors. This home has been given a modern makeover with fresh plaster work to remove stippled ceilings and old wallpaper. Now decorated in clean tones throughout. While installing gas for a new fire, all the radiators were replaced and a new Vogue gas condensing boiler was installed in the attic enabling the hot press to be removed from the 1st floor landing. We renovated the bathroom, incorporating this extra space vacated by the hot press and relocating the door for clearer access. This makes for a fresh space for a relaxing bath and a walk in shower separate, all tiled to the ceiling. A clever addition downstairs is the slim line Sara towel rail by Niko.
Each enquiry is different but 9 times out of 10, the first question we ask is: Do you have a drawing & some details of the works for us to price? In the absence of drawings & specifications it is difficult to give you an idea of price. Worse still, when comparing between builders, prices can differ greatly if not priced off the same plan/spec. Better to have a clear plan in place and something to present to builders for pricing, to ensure you are comparing like with like. For clarity and to set you in the right direction, we would suggest you start with getting scaled drawings prepared by an architect or designer and working through ideas. Our experience has shown, this gives clients greater confidence in the whole process, not just at the pricing stage.
