Renovation of the 200-year-old property had taken many years and the couple had made it their mission to modernise each and every room in a contemporary style that was sympathetic to an old property.
The kitchen, being the one of most important rooms in the house, was one of the most crucial areas to get exactly right and also one of the biggest projects.
After visiting various showrooms they decided that Kitchen Design Centre’s innovative design ideas would be perfect for their home.
“We were impressed with the creativity and flexibility of the kitchen products they offered at their Blackburn showroom” said Mark Hudson.
“However initially we weren’t sure exactly what we wanted. Roger, one of the designers from their Blackburn showroom came to our home and then later showed us several fantastic designs ideas as ‘thumbnail’ ideas.”
“These gave us a clear idea of the possibilities. We eventually decided on the kitchen with the largest ‘island’ workspace because it offered the perfect preparation area, a breakfast area and also had extra storage space. “It really added to the overall kitchen design in terms of appearance as well as practicality.”
The kitchen was designed using the latest cutting-edge Neff and Miele appliances. It boasts a combination microwave, circotherm oven, warming drawers, induction hobs, integrated fridge freezer and dishwasher and a Quooker boiling tap.
It was decided that a wall should be removed and patio doors be enlarged to make considerably more space and light. After the wall was knocked through and tri-fold patio doors installed the room became incredibly light and spacious. “Roger helped us envisage this and create this space. His ideas and artwork gave us a much more developed end result and gave us the confidence to progress.”
Roger Astin, designer at Kitchen Design Centre Blackburn, said: “We helped Mr and Mrs Hudson tackle all the decisions required in a logical order, on time and in budget. Nearly all the work took place whilst they were away on holiday. They came back to find a huge transformation.
Now that all work is complete and the family have had chance to get used to their new room Mark and Jane said how delighted they are with Kitchen Design Centre.
“There is nothing I would change about our new kitchen,” said Mark. “I love everything about it and it has improved our quality of life as a family.
“The service has been fantastic. From the start to finish Kitchen Design Centre have been brilliant and we are thrilled with the end result.”
