Mr & Mrs Donnelly's Kitchen Update
It’s not every day that you get a phone call from one of your old teachers. Especially when you left school… actually, lets not even count how many years ago. Jim, aka Mr Donnelly, was my old history teacher and everyone whom he taught will know that he’s quite a character. The Donnelly’s called us completely by chance as we recently completed Mr & Mrs Donnelly’s niece’s kitchen and she was so pleased with our work that she suggested her aunt and uncle give us a call.
Jim and Mary were looking to modernise their out-dated kitchen. Their existing kitchen was fitted over 20 years ago with artex walls – a short-lived fashion in the 80’s – meaning a full new plaster job was required to bring the space up-to-date.
The Donnelly’s opted for our lacquered white gloss doors complemented with a simple stainless steel door handle, and finished with our elegant Silestone blanco stellar quartz white worktop with subtle grey sparkles – a real stunning combination. We also fitted the kitchen out with integrated Bosch appliances, accurately placed and concealed nicely behind the couple’s beautiful glossy doors. Furthermore, we installed the new Bosch Series 8 oven and microwave – this combination looks great especially stacked one on top of another in a tall unit. We also installed a Bosch cast iron gas hob, which together with everything else gives this kitchen a real premium feel.
Finally, we laid sleek grey quartz tiles on the floor and white brick-like tiles for a neat splashback. The kitchen was then painted Mary’s favourite colour – powder blue. Paired with their new blinds, we think that the fresh blue flatters the rest of the kitchen.
Jim and Mary were delighted with their new kitchen and have since recommended Mulberry to one of my old French teachers – it’s really lovely to be able to do work for people who had such a big influence on your childhood! We start that job next week so keep an eye out to see how that job goes.
Jim & Mary have Kindly written us a lovely review below;
Earlier this summer we decided to replace our kitchen and we visited a few nationally known names in search of our perfect kitchen design. None captured our imagination. Later in conversation with my niece she recommended Mulberry as they had just done hers. I contacted Stephen and was very impressed from the start with his approach. He kept us involved from the outset in all aspects of the process. Every appointment was kept promptly. He gave us a variety of options in terms of design, appliances, tiles, doors, panels, handles and colours. He took responsibility for order and delivery of all materials. Moreover, we were delighted with the final price which represented great value for the quality guaranteed. Stephen kept us informed about the dates of all the fitting jobs. Stephen's team were a delight to work with. All work was finished to a first class standard. We are delighted with our kitchen. Everyone who has seen it has commented on its quality. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen and Mulberry to anyone considering a kitchen.
