They say a picture speaks a thousand words, "Tired" summed it up in one ! with it's doors hanging off and outdated tiles. A little misleading these pictures though because a similar kitchen came out to the one that was installed, just in case you thought I had just levelled up the doors…

Before and after pictures of this year, please click on an image to enlarge.

Truly a stunning kitchen with it's ivory doors, classic handles and solid granite worktops, even the window cill and upstands were made in granite.

The transformation was amazing on this kitchen, even though the original tiling was retained it still looked great.

Before and after views of this kitchen which was tiled by me, for a couple whilst away on holiday, they didn't even know it was being refitted.

Before and after pictures, removed all tiles, blocked up hatch, installed kitchen with high gloss worktops and matching splashback, looks fantastic doesn't it ?.

Before and after pictures, an instant update to this very 70's kitchen.

It's bizarre how fitted units can completely transform an old kitchen, this one was ripped out and painted before I started the installation.

Ripped out these old units, removed the tiles, moved that ridiculous looking boiler spur under the double socket with the cable running under the window, to just under the boiler where it should be, refitted the new units, re-tiled and grouted.

This installation just had a few tweaks removing the oven housing and installing gas hob and cooker hood and on the other side to remove the old integrated cooker hood and fit wine racks removed from other side, also chop off tiles ready for tiling again.

A very neat  and compact kitchen in light oak with integrated washing machine and dishwasher either side of the sink. Check out that wall mounted microwave too.

This kitchen looked like a building site when I arrived but the finished kitchen looked stunning, thanks to Sam for the coffee and chocolate biscuits

Definitely in need of a refit this kitchen was, and as I left it the walls and floor were about to be retiled.

One of my favourite looking kitchens this year, finished in natural wood with Axiom granite black laminate worktop with matching splashbacks all round, a very tidy kitchen.

This kitchen looked very special with curved doors and walnut block worktops and the wall boiler on the right boxed in.

This kitchen was quite a large one so I had to take a left and right picture of it to get it all in, there was also a small utility room included.

There was more to this fabulous kitchen than i could show here, The brass cooker hood was fitted in the original kitchen and re-installed here.

Very similar sizes of units replaced here but what a stunning transformation.  Thanks to Derek & Maria for putting up with me.

Four images showing every stage of installation, The existing 30amp supply is no longer required but in case someone may need it in the future I have resited it on top of the wall units, I have also removed all the old tiles and first fixed the plumbing and waste pipe. Third image shows after the kitchen was fully plastered and ready to install the kitchen. Fourth image shows the finished installation with matching upstands, looks fantastic doesn't it.

This kitchen looks much better now that peninsular wall unit has been removed. Many thanks to Tom & Helen for the emailed pictures

The above images are pretty self explanatory showing views of each side of this rather large kitchen before and after completion.

If ever a kitchen was transformed, surely it must have been this one...

A complete refurbishment of this kitchen including new sockets above worktop and sockets for appliances to be purchased in the future, hence the gaps in the units.

A small but truly stunning kitchen with equally stunning red gloss worktops.

Two weeks this installation took me to complete and the pictures do not do it justice, white gloss doors with off-white Silestone  quartz granite worktops and upstands. The work went right through to the utility room and into the next room where the fridge/freezer and larder units were situated.

Yet another white gloss kitchen, this one had been ripped out, plastered and had the floor tiled before I got there.

This kitchen hadn’t been updated since the 70’s and badly needed it.

My last kitchen of the year, the existing cooker hood stays in position and all the cabinets were changed for this oyster veneered kitchen with granite worktops. You can just see the snow on the ground if you look through the window. Many thanks to Grant & Kate for their hospitality.
