Kitchen project in Southville

Kitchen Project in Southville

This kitchen project was undertaken in 2019, in South Bristol. The house is a traditional Victorian terrace with a small garden to the rear. As with many such houses, the kitchen was at the rear of the house, separated from the dining area by a large chimney breast.

 The chimney breast was completely removed and a supporting RSJ installed. This created a large room with space for a galley kitchen and a spacious dining area. The old dresser was retained and painted to match the kitchen cabinets.

Double doors were installed at the end of the kitchen, opening out into the south-facing garden.

In order to maximise the light, and give some climate-control, a large electric smart Velux window was installed in the roof above the kitchen. 

The boiler was moved, and installed into a large cabinet in the corner of the kitchen.

Plumbing, electrical work & kitchen fitting were carried out by the Practical Women team.

Central Heating work by Greentech Heating & Plumbing.

Kitchen cabinets were supplied by Nailsea Electrical in Bristol.

Structural work was carried out by Stepping Stones Building.
