When Ron and Wendy Tomlin came to Modern Homes, with a ‘design and supply only’ brief, we were more than happy to accommodate them. They loved our Mereway kitchens and we had just the units the couple were looking for.
After contacting a couple of other places in the name of market research, they selected us, thanks to our mixture of expertise and our approach to their job.
The couple were in the process of completely modernising their home – and having ripped out the original Hygena kitchen (which they subsequently managed to sell to a retro enthusiast!), they were left with a complete shell.
Wendy was keen to install a no-fuss kitchen that was modern, and slightly different from the ‘norm’. “I’ve never understood why people always opt for a hob above an oven,” she says. “If someone wants to get out a roast, and another person is stirring gravy on the hob, you end up in each other’s way. So I was absolutely definite about separating out the two.”
Tina at Modern Homes incorporated all of Wendy’s wishes, making a few helpful tweaks and suggestions along the way, like the installation of a couple of tall cupboards at one unusually-shaped end of the kitchen. These now serve as useful ‘office’ space for the computer.
As for the end result, Wendy and Ron are delighted. The overall look is of sleek, low surfaces, with a clean un-fussy style that also manages to be stylish and homely.
As a final thanks, we were delighted to see an online review from the family that said the following – what more could we ask?!
The Customers Words…
“We were impressed by Modern Homes’ ‘can do’ attitude,” says Wendy. “They gave us confidence that we were in good hands, so we were more than happy to proceed with our plans.”
“Can highly recommend Modern Homes. The knowledge and experience of Tina and her team gave us the confidence to put the fitting of our new kitchen in their hands. Nothing was too much trouble and questions were dealt with promptly. Nice to work with a local family firm.”
