Rattlesden Kitchen : 2017

Fed up with her dark uninspiring kitchen Susan asked Kitchenology to create a completely different layout with space to sit and have a coffee, or a bite to eat. Kitchenology were happy to oblige…

THE KITCHEN – before and after

My existing kitchen was old and worn out. The layout did not flow due to too many doors shutting off zones making the space dark and cluttered. As the utility is entered via the rear door then through to the kitchen, I wanted an open area running seamlessly from utility to kitchen.

I wanted to rethink the layout of the kitchen and utility room – in particular the cabinetry, appliances, sinks, taps and electrics. I was after an organised work space with a lighter and much more open feel – also the inclusion of plenty of drawers and more work surfaces as well as somewhere to sit and have a coffee, or a bite to eat.

I visited several kitchen companies and received quotations from two. However, both companies based their plans on the existing kitchen layout and never suggested anything different. Jennifer at Kitchenology, on the other hand, spent time with me and seemed to know what was in my head even if I never fully understood myself! I just knew as soon as I saw her design that it was exactly what I wanted.

Buying a new kitchen and appliances, plus refurbishment work on my own was a huge concern. I didn’t want the worry of appointing different trades. For me it was the trust I felt when I first met Jennifer. She took away the anxiety and fear with her expert knowledge of different kitchen styles to suit different spaces and lifestyle, together with advice on appliances, taps and sinks, electrics, etc. As soon as I visited the Kitchenology showroom and viewed the displays it was plain to see the quality was way above other kitchens I had viewed.

I never had any fear as I totally trusted Jennifer’s knowledge and expertise being a family run kitchen business with many years’ experience.

I adore the fresh, light and modern clean lines of the cabinetry, together with the Siemens appliances, and the worktops look superb. I’m so pleased with all of it but particularly:
1) I now have the fridge in the actual kitchen!
2) I can spend time in the kitchen with friends and have a coffee from the superb Siemens coffee machine
3) I feel like I have gained another room in the house as it is so wonderful to sit and admire. In the evening the different lighting to suit one’s mood is amazing.

My favourite part of my Kitchenology experience was seeing the design on Jennifer’s software for the first time, and the relief that this was exactly what I wanted. And to top it all the whole project would be carried out by a company I could trust 100%.

It was stress free. The installation team were second to none. I can’t praise them enough. Attention to detail, checking with me on where I would like things positioned, etc. All fantastic.
