Kitchens & Bathrooms • Design & Installation
After owning and running a successful interior reform company for many years in the south of England, we decided to take things a little easier and uproot and head to the sunnier climes of Southern Spain.
Not being the type of people to stand still for long, we found ourselves creeping back into our old ways and have been carrying on our expertise here on the Costa del Sol for over 20 years now.
We have "collected" a trusted team of local Spanish workers - each with their own line of expertise - tilers, cabinet makers, electricians and plumbers - to mention just a few of the trades we cover.
WHAT WE DO
We all know how much of a hassle it can be to renew your kitchen or bathroom. So many different skills are required and work often has to carried out in a very small space.
Initially, you need a smart interior designer to listen to you and your requirements and to advise on any necessary permissions from the authorities.
Then a local plumber is a must, one that has a full knowledge of the Spanish plumbing system and necessary appliances. You will need a competent electrician to make sure you have enough power (potencia) installed for your hobs, ovens and kitchen appliances. Someone who can advise on beautiful lighting that resists kitchen vapours and bathroom steam and heat. You will need someone with an in-depth knowledge of the appropriate marble or granite for counter tops and the best tiling available for walls and floors.
All too often people will employ a succession of different individual tradesmen... but we all know how this ends: slow, expensive, frustrating - and everyone passing the buck and blaming mistakes on others, slowing down the whole process.
It’s so much easier to entrust your project to one company, to take away all the headaches of trying to run your own project - a lot of the time while you are not even in the country!
That’s where we step in - from initial contact to your very first boiled egg in your new kitchen, you will have one point of contact to give you peace of mind with regular updates including pictures... available just a phone call away, 24/7. And we will be there ready to celebrate with you at the end of your successful project.
As soon as you contact us we will be there for you. We will visit you on-site with our designer and a selection of catalogues for you to drool over. We will advise on what would best suit your space and budget. And to give you a better idea, we will take you to visit the showrooms where you can "feel" the quality of the units and accessories and help you purchase your final choices.
We will then introduce you to our team, meeting with them on-site so they can flag up any problems that they think may arise and advise on the best solutions. Once all agreed, we will supply you with plans, timeline and budget (we will require a percentage of the final budget in advance).
Once a start date has been agreed, then the fun begins. Our team will be wholly involved in your project, and yours alone - they will not be whizzing off to other jobs. We will keep in regular contact with you, updating you on the progress and send you pictures for your scrapbook !
On completion and once the site has been professionally cleaned, we will walk through the project with you and, only after you are 100% satisfied, we will request the balance of the monies outstanding and join you in a celebratory bottle of cava!!!
We engaged Don and Sharon Bagnell to carry out major works on a house we had purchased in the Spanish village of Benahavis in 2015. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable, yet very personable. They really did look after us and they project managed and sourced everything for us. The works included a complete sub-floor strip out; removal of all plaster and ceilings; moving an interior wall; putting in new full drainage system in the house; a full electrical re-wire; completely new floor; new doors and windows; replastering throughout; two new bathrooms and a new kitchen. The workmanship was first-class and the job completed in a timely fashion without any snags at all. We could not recommend them more for anyone wanting work done to their property however large or small. We have recommended them to other people we know and have indeed since become very firm friends with them such was the excellent job they did. Really exceptional. You will be in safe hands with Don and Sharon”

From concept to completion was painless, Don and Sharon have a wealth of knowledge and experience which really helped us. They have a great team of conscientious, polite and tidy tradesmen that I can highly recommend and would not hesitate to use again.

OUTSTANDING DESIGN AND BUILD
Sharon and Don did an outstanding design and build on our apartment’s kitchen and bathroom. They had some great design ideas and sourced materials within our budget. We were delighted with the standard of workmanship throughout. In our absence, Don managed the whole project from start to finish and it was great knowing we had a team we could rely on and trust.
