Faced with a condensed works schedule, Full Works Facilities Management Limited worked with supreme speed and accuracy to complete this kitchen renovation.

Taking on some aspects of the design process as well as the lighting and installation, this Master Builder’s comprehensive service won high praise from the homeowner, who said:

Kitchen Project - Bagshots Ltd (Southern Counties)

Working to a maritime theme, this kitchen renovation project saw Bagshots install a raft of bespoke features including a central island, window seating, an oak table and benches for seating. Paying close attention to their client’s vision, the team pursued a traditional style incorporating 'old fashioned' frames around the cabinet doors combined with solid oak furniture. When creating the oak table and benches, they routed a pencil bead on the edges to match the existing fixtures, maintaining a consistent aesthetic throughout and delighting their client, who stated: “I was dreading the build, the disruption, the stress, but the reality was the opposite, it was exciting!”

Kitchen Project - Kevin Wilson Joiners and Building Contractors (Scotland)

This kitchen renovation project by Kevin Wilson Joiners and Building Contractors required the blocking and plastering-in of a window, before an existing doorway was also replaced. With the addition of bespoke kitchen units above the space and clever use of materials that saved their client more than £3,000, the kitchen now offers plenty of storage space and a fresh new look. The homeowners were pleased with this Master Builder’s efforts to make the most of their limited budget, stating: ‘Thank you, what you have helped us achieve is just outstanding quality and service, we are indebted to you.’

Kitchen Project - PAP Building Services Ltd (South West)

Part of a project to transform a derelict bungalow into two high quality new-build homes, these dual kitchens showcase PAP Building Services’ attention to detail and outstanding carpentry capabilities. Positioned to provide optimal access to the gardens and make the most of the views of the Bristol channel from within, they both feature high vaulted ceilings, oversized external door heights and frameless balcony balustrading. Adjustable LED lighting illuminates the solid-surface worktops - each of which has been carefully “waterfalled” down the sides of the island fixtures - and handle-less doors make for a flush finish. The clients described the kitchens as “outstanding” and “better than we could ever have imagined.”
