It does what it says on the tin

March 29th 2012 by .

Dear Sirs

I received my order on Tuesdays mid morning. The packages were in perfect condition and all the doors undamaged.

I began fitting them and I must say, the doors could not have been manufactured any better. The finish was absolutely wonderful and the edging on all doors was perfect. The handles chosen complimented the doors perfectly.

I finished the units with hi gloss black plinths and fitted blue 10mm LED’s mid height and at 300mm centres. The appearance of the whole kitchen is fantastic. The units are complimented with a white tiles counter top around 4 walls, finishing with a high raised breakfast bar.

I have taken before and after photo’s for you to look at. I built the kitchen extension and 1st floor extension myself 15 years ago (I enjoy DIY, and made all the “Shaker style” doors myself) This is why there were a few odd sized door. I wanted to utilise the space fully.

Thanks for the work put into my doors.

I have one problem!!!!…………..I asked for 1 door to be 715hx225w…..It should have been 715hx255w.. I have no idea how I gave this wrong dimension. I have cut the door you sent and fitted it. (It cut without any chipping and I have a perfect edge) Could you please make me another door, the correct size, at your convenience and send next time you are in the area.

Thank you again for “It does what it says on the tin” doors. I will send photo’s as soon as I can upload from my laptop. There is something preventing me uploading anything. I will have to sort this out.

In the meantime, if you wish to use my feedback you are welcome, and I’ll certainly recommend your company to everyone.

Best regards

How to create a family eating area when you are refurbishing your kitchen

March 27th 2012 by .

Increasingly in our culture, the kitchen has become the hub of the home. We have knocked down walls and created kitchens come dining rooms to help us feel like our family space is also our food preparation space (or vice versa!).

The result of this has been a proliferation of places to eat in the kitchen. This might mean a breakfast bar, a central island, a corner nook or even a full-blown dining table and chairs. Which ever you want or already have, it will always mean more cupboards and certainly more work surfaces.

Breakfast bars and central islands in particular come in for some pretty serious family time. They can be places for eating breakfast and snacks through out the day. They are also used by children for homework while they watch Mum or Dad cook and they are places for a chat with your friends. This means that any cupboards underneath are likely to be kicked and scratched by little (or big) feet. Replacing these kitchen doors is a breeze, if you know how.

Unless you can find cupboard doors to match (which is often possible) it will mean that the entire kitchen cupboard doors will need replacing so that everything matches. But this doesn’t have to be the end of the world.

With the price of replacement kitchen doors coming in at a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen, you can afford to replace them with cheap kitchen doors for a lot less than you might think.

Replacing kitchen doors is as easy as getting on the Internet and choosing the doors you like in the sizes you need. Once you receive them (which could be as soon as a few days) you can set about attaching them to your current kitchen carcasses. With the help of a screwdriver and a level, you will have the job done in less than a day.

If you are creating a new eating area in your kitchen, your approach is going to be a little different. You will need to extend your worktop and probably build some new cupboards. This is easier than you might think.

Simply buy the number of carcasses you need to extend the area of kitchen you have allowed for. Then top it with a worktop which has an overhang. Place your replacement kitchen doors underneath and even above as required and you have the perfect eating area. Not only does this provide you with more space, it offers extra storage.

Even a separate dining area can be incorporated into your kitchen with the addition of some kitchen units to store crockery. A line of extra cupboards along one wall in your dining area will bring it together with your kitchen, clearly marking it as part of the same room. You can add the same replacement kitchen doors and you have the ideal place to store everything from your plates and cups to your best silverware.

You could even choose to add a worktop to this area of your kitchen /dining room to allow you to have room for serving your family. While this may seem rather grand, the cost does not have to be prohibitive. You can order your doors, carcasses and the worktop online from a replacement door merchant.

An eating area in your kitchen is as natural as having a television in your living room. It is the perfect spot for a quick snack or even a full sit-down family meal. Whatever you have room for, you can achieve with replacement kitchen doors and work surfaces. The hardest jobs is actually choosing the best styles and design for your particular needs.

The new doors look fantastic

What do you think about your new kitchen doors? THE NEW DOORS LOOK FANTASTIC
How did you get on fitting your new doors? THERE WERE NO PROBLEMS AT ALL AS THERE WERE NO DOORS FITTED TO THESE CABINETS PREVIOUSLY, ALL I HAD TO DO WAS MEASURE FOR THE HINGES THAT WERE SUPPLIED.
What does the finished job look like? THE NEW DOORS HAVE MADE DISPLAY CABINETS INTO USEFUL STORAGE CABINETS IN OUR HOLIDAY HOME, AND THEY LOOK AS THOUGH THEY WERE THE ORIGINAL QUALITY FITTINGS
What could we do to improve our kitchen doors or our service? I CAN THINK OF NOTHING TO BEAT THE SERVICE AND QUALITY OF PRODUCT I HAVE RECEIVED.
Would you recommend us to others Yes
Any other comments?

Hi

We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen doors – what a difference it has made to our kitchen.  I just felt it was time for a change.  I was a little disappointed that the bridging unit supplied was just in plain wood and did not have the same features as the other doors.

Attached are some photographs of the new doors.

I have to say that there was nothing wrong with our previous doors apart from the fact that we had had them for a long time – they were still in perfect condition.  I  have passed oon your contact details to a friend who is intered in replacing his kitchen doors.

Regards

Sylvia
