We are absolutely delighted with our kitchen. Instead of a gloomy, impractical and impossible to keep clean corridor, we have a light, spacious kitchen which is a pleasure to work or just be in - and all within the original footprint.
Tony's genius lies in imaginative use of space, with elegant solutions for all those awkward corners, and maximising the efficiency of the work-space without compromising design. The problem of providing enough storage space without recreating the corridor effect was solved by two large larder cupboards. These have lots of shelves at just the right heights, and folding doors for ease of access. Large drawers under the work-top take all our pans, utensils and cutlery, and one is devoted to all those bits, like pens, batteries, drawing pins and elastic bands that everyone collects and no-one knows what to do with.
We had clear ideas of what we wanted from our kitchen, and Tony and his team quickly came up with a design which suited us. They were always helpful and patient, and, by use of CAD, could show us how things would look, so we could be confident about the finished kitchen. Choosing the colours and materials from the large range of samples was very exciting, and the CAD image confirmed our choices.
The work involved moving a door and putting in extra windows, so was not a straight forward kitchen refit, but all went forward according to plan. Tony and his team were very good about sorting out the glitches which occur in any project, and all was completed on time. Tony over-saw the project throughout, often calling in after work to check all was well.
We have seen some of the large kitchens Anthony Edwards has designed, and they are amazing. However, we thoroughly recommend this company to anyone who has a modest or impractical space, as our kitchen has been totally transformed as a work-space and the combination of materials and colours make it beautiful and fun to be in.
