Extremely happy with the results
Handbuilt kitchens were recommended to us by a friend and from the first meeting, we found the company to be extremely professional with a wealth of experience behind them.
Julien came out initially to discuss our ideas for the kitchen. We found his advice to be very honest and he wanted to know what we wanted from our kitchen to understand how it would work best for our family. Julien advised what would work best and came up with brilliant suggestions to make our space work the best for us. As our house is quite traditional we wanted to keep the kitchen in fitting with this. Some of the initial ideas we had would not have worked and Julien discussed this with us, resulting in the kitchen working out best both financially and aesthetically.
Due to the age of our property we required quite a lot of prep work before the Kitchen could be fitted this included a rewire, walls to be stripped of old plaster due to damp issues and a re-plaster on the walls and ceiling. Julien recommended workers to come in and complete this work and project managed this for us, he planned what needed to be done and when and managed the workmen coming in to do their jobs. This relieved the stress from us and the prep work went smoothly. Once this was all complete Julien was able to start with the Kitchen fitting, before this began he finalised the plans and ensured we were happy with the plan of the kitchen, the cupboards we have chosen and the work tops, alongside all the accessories. At this point we decided to change the work surfaces and this was not a problem.
Overall, I found the service we received from Handbuilt Kitchens to be excellent and we are extremely happy with the results, the kitchen fits in with the rest of the house and works well for our family and will no doubt add value to our property.
