Keen to make the most of their downstairs living space, Mr and Mrs Meskell from Bolton decided it was time to renovate. With a largely unutilised dining room, the couple decided to merge the space with their kitchen – creating an open plan room that was sure to wow. “We knew that merging the two would enable us to make a lot better use of the space,” explains Mrs Meskell. “After we saw some of Kitchen Design Centre’s completed projects, we knew they were the right company to help us achieve our dream kitchen,” she adds.
Mr and Mrs Meskell already knew they wanted a spacious, open plan kitchen but were open to ideas when it came to the rest of the design. “One of the things that made Kitchen Design Centre stand out was the thought and attention to detail they put into their designs,” says Mrs Meskell. “Paul presented us with a fantastic kitchen design – it was exactly what we wanted.”
The couple’s designer, Paul Harrington, guided the pair through his ideas for their kitchen – refining their own ideas and adding a few of his own. “We were so happy with everything he presented,” smiles Mrs Meskell.
The couple decided on a neutral colour palette in grey and cashmere. Cameo white Corian worktops were also added to enhance the contemporary design and complemented by a Corian sink. For casual dining, Paul also designed in a stylish grey acacia breakfast bar – ideal for busy mornings and quick meals.
Kitchen Design Centre also managed all the building works, electrics, plastering and installation – taking the stress out of the process. A variety of high-end Neff appliances were installed, including the popular Slide & Hide Oven and Combi Microwave. And for all those social events, Paul also recommended the Caple Built-In Wine Cooler. “The finished kitchen looked just like the sketches – it’s a sheer delight to work in and spend time in,” says Mrs Meskell from Bolton. “Best of all, the whole process was stress-free too. The timings were spot on and the quality of workmanship was brilliant.”
Mr & Mrs Meskell tell us:
“We love our new kitchen! It’s perfect for family celebrations and for entertaining friends. It’s now the hub of our home where everyone gathers. We couldn’t be happier.”
"Our new kitchen has real wow factor. When we first saw Paul’s initial sketches of the design, we didn’t even think it was our kitchen. It looked amazing."
"The modern, open-plan kitchen is perfect for the Meskells. It was a great idea to knock the two spaces into one and helped create a kitchen that flowed and functioned optimally."Paul Harrington
