After purchasing our home we knew we'd have to replace the kitchen. We looked all over, in IKEA B&Q and magnet to name a few, but none of them really hit the spot. Eventually we went to Hatt Kitchens to look for the style we required. Once we had agreed on an overall style,we asked Trevor from Changing Kitchens to come round to measure up and draft a design. He listened diligently to our requirements and also made a few suggestions regarding the ergonomics of the layout. After a short time he produced a detailed plan. On first view it took about 5 minutes for us to take in, the silence was deafening as we stared at the plan. Trevor seemed a little concerned at this point but, the truth was, we were blown away with the design.
The next step was back to Hartlebury to firm up more detail including door handles, granite and work surfaces. There was a little change that we made to the design, we wanted oak shelves in our design after a little more discussion we had enhanced the design and we were totally thrilled with the plan. We gathered several building quotes as we needed a supporting wall removing in the house. Trevor recommended a builder who was in budget for our needs. We also used Mark Ballard for a window and french doors that we had fitted.
So the deposits were paid and the work commenced with the demolition. The talented team were all polite and respectful throughout the build. They were also very respectful of Trevor saying how in the past they had worked for many other kitchen companies but that Trevor's kitchens and plans were always correct down to the millimetre. This was extremely reassuring.
The kitchen was stripped, the ceiling taken down, the wall was taken out, the electrics and lights were put in, as were the window, doors and the flooring. The kitchen arrived and was fitted, the oak shelves went up, the island was put in place and granite top was placed on. The kitchen was fitted on schedule and in a most professional manner, with Trevor popping in most days to project manage the whole job. The kitchen is absolutely awesome. It is a place where our family and friends all interact and love to be in it. It makes people happy to be in such a wonderful environment, we love our kitchen. The food that is served up is always magnificent.
To say we are totally thrilled with the kitchen is an understatement. Trevor's years of experience in quality kitchens is outstanding, we can't speak highly enough about Trevor and his team and will strongly recommend Changing Kitchens to all family and friends.Mr and Mrs LM Dandy,
Just a quick note to confirm the completion of kitchen installation.Ron & Chris Newton,
We would both like to thank you for your professionalism, guidance and expertise in helping us install a kitchen which we believe will last us for many years.
Although installing a new kitchen is perhaps the most difficult room in an household to change, we both felt confident after the detail you had provided to us during the quotation that as long as we chose the correct units for us the completed installation would be good!
Fortunately we did our part 😀 and you certainly did yours .
Changing Kitchens has changed a working space from merely functional to inspired.
Thank you Trevor for bringing an idea to life.Vivienne Dance,
We bought a run down old farm and 12 months ago we took the step to have the kitchen done. To say our kitchen was awful is a huge understatement, it had last been done in the 60's or 70's, the floor tiles once had a pattern, but it was long since worn off and the ceiling had wooden boat type panelling that Phil had made me promise not to poke at it in case it fell down on us..... so we called Trevor in to get his thoughts.
As a photographer and an engineer I accept that we are possibly not the easiest people to work with, but Trevor absolutely put us at ease, the kitchen is such an important room and needs to be absolutely right. The design he came back with amazed us both, the chaps that fitted the kitchen for us were so neat, tidy and polite we couldn't believe it, to the point where we have used them for more work since then too. From planning, through to installation we were genuinely really pleased, the attention to detail with Trevor's design for us worked wonderfully.
Everybody that has been in our kitchen since can't believe what he has achieved with the space, as the kitchen isn't a big room. The other thing that everybody says is how fabulous it is - I'm so impressed with what Trevor has done, I recommend him to everybody who says they need a kitchen.
I have a breakfast bar that I never thought would fit in our kitchen and a bin that's hidden away, I have corner cupboards that I can easily access and a wonderful quartz worktop with copper bits in it that I love so much. I cannot speak highly enough of Trevor Hatt and his team. Even to the point that when our integral fridge freezer broke down after the 12 month warranty was up and they wouldn't help us, Trevor phoned up Hotpoint and organised them to take the faulty one away and a brand new one - with full warranty to be fitted.
I don't know where else we could get such personal and professional service. To have a happy engineer husband also means that it's and excellent kitchen.
Thank you so much for our fabulous kitchen - and to be able to cook Christmas lunch for 12 people with such ease because the layout works so well means the world. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
(Very Happy Customers)Alex and Phil Pargeter,
