New kitchen and a new first floor bathroom
We are very excited and proud to share with you this recently completed project in Stotfold, Bedfordshire.

Our client wanted to transform the layout of their house which involved moving their downstairs bathroom to the first floor and updating their kitchen. Both rooms were small, dated and not having a bathroom on the first floor was becoming a functional pain.

The project took 10 weeks to complete and this included safely knocking out a structural wall and vaulting the ceiling to make a huge, spacious area on the ground floor. We removed the old bathroom suite and extended the kitchen diner area to where this used to be, then moving on to update and modernise the kitchen.

Upstairs we split the third bedroom into two new rooms, one serving as a home office and the second as the new family bathroom, of course requiring a new plumbing system to run upstairs. And finally, we updated all the windows and doors to the rear of the property.

We converted the clients house from a 3 bedroom into a 2.5 bedroom but now with a beautiful large bathroom on the first floor and a warm, modern and inviting kitchen on the ground floor, and whilst this customer has lost a bedroom, we are already planning the next stage of their home improvement, a loft conversion, with them.

Converting an unused loft into a new bedroom and snug area
We are very proud of our recently completed project in Stotfold, Bedfordshire.

Our customer wanted to utilise their unused loft space and create an additional bedroom and secret snug area with its own entrance door. We love it when a customer gives us something unusual to create, and we really enjoyed this challenge, giving us an opportunity to be creative.

On the first floor, we created a new corridor, leading to a door that was originally a cupboard. We knocked this through to create a bigger space and then built a flight of stairs, taking you up to the loft space. The client suggested lighting the handrail up the new stairs, so we added a strip of LED lights. Such a brilliant and simple addition. And if that wasn’t enough light, we added a beautiful Velux skylight above the stairs for sunny days and stargazing.

On the left-hand side at the top of the stairs is the newly created 4th bedroom to the house. With windows at either end of the room, there is a lot of light, making the space feel enormous. With the smooth walls and fluffy carpet, this room feels like a cosy and warm bedroom.

And on the right-hand side of the stairs is the secret snug, accessed through a hobbit-type door! Whilst this room is not regulated (meaning this house cannot be listed as a 5-bedroom property) this space is versatile enough to be a dressing room, a TV room, a games room, or just somewhere to play hide n seek in (or just hide from the kids in!) With a beautiful bright window, it again, feels roomy and spacious.

Radiators have been added to both rooms, as well as roomy eaves storage, separated from the main space by handy little doors. To complete the job, we painted and decorated the stairs from the ground floor upwards, ensuring a seamless and beautiful finish.

And it doesn’t end there! To appease the outside eye, we also reclaimed some roof tiles to ensure a consistent look with the rest of the building, also giving the impression that the conversion was always there.

We pulled together a brilliant team and worked over 10 weeks to get the job completed.
  
Upon completion, our customer said, “I am so impressed with the space and the nice, clean finish. Special thanks to the site foreman for all his hard work and attention to detail”.

Summer open plan living
With the sun shining this week, and the daffodils sprouting up all around, it’s easy to start daydreaming about this years’ summer. Will it top last years’ long hot one?  I hope so! We had endless weeks of eating meals in the garden and the kids bouncing on the trampoline until the sunset. Our space outside quickly became an extra room at our property and we utilised it to the max.

A perfect way of bringing the outside in is to add bi-folding doors to your property. By creating this big, spacious opening to your ground floor, you instantly have a quick and easy way of basking your home with fresh air, sunshine, and light. Imagine opening the doors in the morning of a summers day and filling your kitchen with the sound, smells and warmth of summer. Or hosting a party at your house and being able to slide open the doors and let your guests spill out into the garden. And these doors also work well during the winter months, with insulated frames and glass keeping you cosy but still allowing the winter sunshine to flood in.

If you are interested in making a structural change to your home, to include bi-folding doors, or to add an extension to your ground floor, please get in touch with us for a chat on how we can help you achieve your summer dream.
