Looking back over the past 30 years
As we prepare for Christmas and the end of 2016, we look back over the past 30 years and look forward to helping future customers.
We’ve seen some big changes over the last 30 years in business. When owner, Steve first started the company his clients were very much focused on using every centimetre in their home wisely.
Over the years lifestyles have changed and with the increasing desire for open plan living, designers are given more space to play with and more room to be creative too. Design and colour co-ordination have become as important as practicality. Detail, such as managing heating and acoustics, of these larger spaces requires careful consideration. These factors provided new challenges, and Steve and the team retrained to ensure that we continued to provide professional advice, making the whole project a success.
Identifying that change has been key to reaching the 30 year milestone, and we never stop learning.
It’s been a marriage of embracing new ideas without undermining the company’s core values; that is to provide a project that is practical, beautiful, on time and on budget. As the recession bit Steve ensured we had the best showroom, products and fitters by moving to the current premises. It took a huge amount of investment in tough times but it paid off and made the business stronger. Our knowledge expanded to understand soundproofing, lighting and sound systems as well as underfloor heating. During all these changes customers were very supportive, many contacting us with messages of support and their repeat business saw us through some difficult times. Steve comments ‘we have been lucky enough to meet some wonderful clients over the years with many becoming friends.
It’s been a pleasure to work with such a diverse range of clients on projects of all shapes and sizes. It’s been a very rewarding 30 years.’
Here’s looking forward to 2017, and another 30 years of stunning kitchen and now bedroom designs!
