Here is the latest kitchen project that’s just been finished.
My first time fitting a Wren supplied kitchen, this is the J Pull Range finished in Pebble Gloss with a Super Silk Night worktop and upstands.
Starting with a freshly plastered room, the walls and ceiling were mist coated and painted.
Then the remains of a tiled floor was removed to expose the original floorboards and make sure everything was secure and level for the new oak wood flooring to be laid.
Once the flooring was down the cabinets could begin to be brought in and put into position, all of the existing plumbing has been moved and rerouted so it can all be hidden from sight once finished. The worktop could then be cut to size and the sink could be connected.
The left row of cabinets were then fitted which included the built under fridge, oven and induction hob.
Then it was onto the wall units beginning with a bespoke built boiler cupboard to allow correct ventilation. Once the height of that was finalised the other wall units could be hung at a height to match with one of them housing a microwave oven.
Then the extractor was hung and connected and a custom panel made from remaining kitchen panels to hide the remaining pipework below the boiler.
Finally a UPVC windowsill was cut to size and the glass splash back behind the hob also fitted.
The electrician had fitted odd non matching wall sockets so these were changed so that they were all the same.
A final coat of paint and finishing touches and another happy customer that I will return to later in the year to continue the flooring into the hallway and build some understairs storage.
Incidentally, there was a couple of items that were damaged and we spent hours trying to get through by telephone with no luck.
The damage was reported via the Wren website and was the sorted within a day or two with no questions or issues at all.
This customer had already had someone that had painted her original kitchen cabinet doors white but it still needed a lot of work to get it looking new again.
The old tiles were removed first and then the old brown worktops taken off and a pair of marble effect laminate worktops cut to size and fitted with the existing hob and brand new double bowl sink and tap.
Then the walls were made good in preparation for the new white tiles.
A birds nest of dodgy wiring found hidden behind the cooker has made safe by re-wiring in new boxed and routing cables where they can’t cause any issues.
Also a light switch that was previously tiled over has been moved to it’s correct position and a new extractor fan fitted.
All tiling done and the ceiling repainted as well as re-fixing the lights.
Walls finished in B&Q’s own brand ‘Whisper”.
It’s really hard to see in the finished pictures but it’s sooo much brighter now!!
