Kitchen Installation in Rayleigh, Essex – Mr & Mrs J


After exploring the housing market for some time Mr & Mrs J from Rayleigh decided that they would prefer to improve rather than move from their property. Although their house was a generous size they felt that the kitchen let it down both in terms of size, style and function.

It was then that they considered removing an internal supporting wall, blocking up the back door, removing the window and replacing with bi-fold doors and moving the utility room wall.

The first port of call was some local building companies, they soon realized that whilst builders were happy to take on the work, they all wanted to put an off-the-shelf rather bland kitchen in. From there they contacted some more reputable kitchen companies but it seemed the problems were reversed as although they had better designs and more quality products to offer they seemed unable to manage the build.

It was then that they stumbled upon Regal Kitchens in Chelmsford, after visiting the showroom, they invited the designer, John Martin, over one weekday evening, within an hour they had given a brief, been inspired by the ideas and even had a guide price. Less than a week later they were back in the showroom perfecting the plan and working through the vast product choice.

They opted for a Schuller kitchen in handleless concrete grey & white gloss. Corian wortops and a set of Neff appliances, including the brilliant venting hob dismissing the need for an unsightly extractor. The hidden extras such as internal larder drawers and recycling system help make the kitchen accessible and the water softener and kettle tap ensure it will be limescale and clutter-free for years to come. The finishing touch is the Amtico Rustic Barn Wood flooring which added a warm and homely feel to the modern kitchen.

Between Regal Kitchens and it’s partner company Regal developments ably managed by Phil Edgell they took a dated, modest sized room and turned it into a practical yet beautiful family kitchen.

If ever a company lived up to it’s tagline it’s clearly Regal Kitchens “Where Client is King”
