In this article, we are looking at how the general public has improved their kitchen whilst the country has been in lockdown. We will try to look at how kitchen owners have used the seaside theme to revamp their kitchens and especially concentrate upon kitchen renovations in Broadstairs, Kent to see how people living by the coast have got on. We hope you enjoy reading our article and it gives you some ideas you can use on your upcoming kitchen renovation project.
One of the finest kitchen manufacturers in the marketplace today has to be Stoneham, appointed to Her Majesty The, Queen, they have been designing high-quality kitchens since 1864, a company with rich heritage and an eye for classic, beautiful designs. As kitchens are seen as perhaps the most important part of your house to marketers it’s no surprise that installing a Stoneham kitchen in your house increases the value of your property by more pounds than the kitchen actually costs. AJ Ball & Sons in Broadstairs have been kitchen installers of Stoneham products since 1948 and are the local experts to contact. If you are looking for something a little less traditional, more modern, and striking then you should look at the Leicht contemporary range of kitchens also by AJ Ball & Sons in Broadstairs. Between these two high-end kitchen manufacturers, there will be the style and design that ticks all of your boxes.
One thing we have seen a lot over the lockdown period is the use of natural products scavenged from the beaches and made to be centerpieces of a sea-based kitchen design. If you are looking to upgrade your Broadstairs kitchen design, then head to the beach as soon as possible. Look for shells and even seaweed as these items can transform the feel of your kitchen all for free. Kitchen designers in Broadstairs have a real advantage with the beach and the sea being right on their doorstep. If you look around the boats in the harbor for bits of old rope and netting these too have been used to give a real seaside feel to an older style kitchen. The more adventurous of us out there even have been asking some really interesting looking old sea dogs if we can take a picture which, when blown up in black and white, really gives a focal point in your designer kitchen and, of course, with the added bonus that it’s of a local fisherman which gives some lovely authenticity to your new kitchen design.
Old pieces of reclaimed wood have been used when walkers have found them during the lockdown in woods, tracks, and even on the beachfront. These can add real character to your kitchen design but be careful, do look to get them treated in case there are little parasites such as woodworm hidden inside as you would not want to bring things like that into your house when you are designing your new kitchen.
Some outdoor reclaim yards have also been open partly through a lockdown and continuing with the by the sea theme you can find all sorts to complement your kitchen design such as old ship’s wheels and even some ready-made portholes which you can work into a new wall if you are that way inclined. Throughout the lockdown items such as these have been sought after more thoroughly than during normal times. Kitchen owners during lockdown have also been busy buying up reclaimed ships decking and relaying it in the kitchen to give a really authentic feel to the seaside kitchen. Again, if you live looking for kitchen design in Broadstairs then you are lucky as there are many reclaim yards spread throughout East Kent that you can visit now lockdown is coming to an end. The nautical theme can be continued further by reclaiming large wooden beams, such as you would find on old sailing ships such as the HMS Victory based down in Portsmouth, and using them in your kitchen ceiling to really give the impression you are sailing the seven seas.
So, in summary, during lockdown people in Broadstairs have been busy redesigning their kitchens by really using the ideas that are around them in everyday life by the seaside and from reclaiming yards. When you are not allowed outside people have been busy bringing the outside, inside really becoming kitchen installers in Broadstairs in their own right. The real professionals, however, are AJ Ball & Sons so if you have some ideas about your kitchen design but want a quality craftsman to take that idea forward just contact AJ Ball & Sons who would be only too happy to help.
We do hope that you have enjoyed our article on what people have been doing to refresh their kitchens during the lockdown and hopefully it’s given you some ideas for the future. Thanks for reading.
