Kitchen and Laundry Renovation in Papatoetoe, Auckland
Duration of project
August 2019, project took 5 weeks
Our clients are just like any other young family, facing the issues that come with having young children.
“We wanted to have an upgrade and the shelving was getting old and we just wanted to change things before the kids grow older and we get busy with other things” explains our client as a reason for renovating their kitchen and bathroom.
With two working adults with young children aged 5 and 7, a practical kitchen with plenty of storage and easy maintenance was high on their list.
Initially they only wanted to get a few cabinets upgraded in their kitchen but after speaking to Kevin our senior project manager they decided to get their entire kitchen, bathroom and laundry redone.
“We had certain things the way we wanted at the back of our mind but talking to Kevin we realized that there were a few problems with it. We just thought that he was trustworthy” says our client about his initial consultation with Kevin.
While his wife says “About interior of the cabinets he told us the new designs that were out that were more practical and more modern designs”.
In order to add more storage and convenience we added a ‘magic corner’’, custom made storage trays within shelves and a pull out drawer system for the pantry.
Kevin himself has two twin daughters which means that he is well versed with what is practical in a kitchen with young kids.
“We did have a few hiccups just like with anything but we worked through it” – client
One of the hurdles that we faced during the project was with the custom drawers in the pantry. Our junior installer took longer than we had anticipated which extended the project time slightly. However Bonnie who was the main project manager ensured that it was re-done according to our clients’ satisfaction.
”Everyone was very respectful of us living in the house” – Client
Their kitchen renovation was completed in 3 weeks after which they went on to get a bathroom and toilet renovated.
”Bonnie made a schedule for 3 weeks and everything was mostly delivered on time” – Client
Our Clients’ Kitchen transformation
