Grace and Favour: Bespoke kitchen

Grace and Favour: Bespoke kitchen

As part of our bespoke carpentry series, we spoke to different Checkatrade carpentry members about some of their most memorable projects. In this guide, Grace and Favour share a recent bespoke kitchen project.

The project

This bespoke kitchen project was in a residential 1980s built home that had a very standard dark enclosed kitchen that simply didn’t work for the family. One of the family runs a successful deli and enjoys cooking, so lots of storage and easy cooking placement were key.

Adjacent to the kitchen was a carport that had in the past been badly converted into a granny annexe with some very poor DIY. Grace and Favour offer a full design and build service and carried out a 3D LIDAR survey to capture every detailed measurement of the space.

Once the team had the measurements and the customer’s likes and requirements, they created a design brief along with a fully detailed quotation to ensure all parties were in agreement with what was to be delivered.

The team worked through a number of designs with the customers to accommodate their budget and also ensure they got the look and feel that the customer wanted completely right. As well as completing the kitchen, Grace and Favour also installed new hardwood engineered floors in their lounge/hallway and what was to be, the new kitchen eating area and utility space.

The budget was £30,000 excl. VAT and the team achieved this with only a 5% increase on variations. This was because as the project progressed, changes were made and existing shoddy DIY works needed to be addressed.

Customer review

“I had very specific ideas on how I wanted our new kitchen to look and from the outset, Paul interpreted those ideas beautifully and organised the whole thing with the utmost professionalism. Being an avid fan of home improvement programs I was expecting the timescales and budget we agreed to slip, especially as I was working from home at the time but I was reassured by Paul’s updates and full transparency on costs/ planning as things evolved. The team were considerate, hard-working and left at the end of each day making sure we would have what we needed overnight and everything was left tidy. All in all a very happy customer and would have no hesitation recommending Grace and Favour.”
