Milbourne Hartforth Blue
We asked Natasha about her initial visit to the store, and what her first impressions were…
“I popped into the store and explained to Exeter Kitchen Store Designer Jack what kind of thing I was after and what my budget was. I never felt judged on my design choices or on the amount I was able to put towards my new kitchen, which helped to lift a huge amount of pressure!
He made it fun and easy, and the simplicity of the process was great. Jack was also able to give us lots of different ideas and options for the kitchen that we didn’t consider.”
Milbourne Partridge Grey
When Claire and Andy were in the initial stages of planning their kitchen, they couldn’t agree on a design. They were at odds with what they wanted, Andy was drawn to something ultra-modern, whilst Claire wanted a more current design.
Both Claire and Andy didn’t like the traditional section of the showroom. However, they did like the style of the Milbourne door on its own. Without the cornice as a part of the design (which was displayed in the showroom), this resulted in a more contemporary silhouette.
Impressions Dust Grey & White
Gary and Verity had never been in the market for a kitchen before, so went about the common process of visiting local kitchen showrooms.
While they were visiting Exeter kitchen showrooms, Gary and Verity also visited the national kitchen companies, which were the likes of Howdens, Wickes and B&Q. The couple chose EKS over other showrooms due to budget plans, customers service and designs. As their kitchen budget contributed to the decision-making process, Exeter Kitchen Store was a sensible choice due to the payment plan available. However, the main factor that sold EKS to Gary and Verity was the service from their designer Jack.
The kitchen was designed around Jayne’s home extension, which resulted in a large, open plan kitchen. Prior to the extension, the kitchen was much smaller, with the new Milbourne design making the most of the increased space.
Jayne went into the Exeter Kitchen Store without a clear idea of a design, however, she did know specific elements she wished to have. The only style idea that Jayne was set on, was a kitchen that wasn’t too modern.
Jayne knew she wanted a working island with a hob before she got her design. She also visited the EKS showroom with the view to include a built-in, eye-height oven, an American style fridge and a wine fridge.
When Jayne and her partner visited the showroom and saw the Milbourne display, they knew that was the style of kitchen they wanted.
Mornington Dove Grey
To stay in keeping with his 1920s home, Ian was looking for a door style that offered a traditional approach. With the concise range, Ian was able to easily select a door style he liked that would fit in with the era of his house. While the Mornington door wasn’t ultra-modern, it was contemporary enough to look current and to allow modern appliances to be incorporated without appearing out of place.
Due to the small kitchen space, Ian appreciated how his designer had made effective use of the room available. He found that the inclusion of taller wall units on back walls, this added increased storage space. A Wari Corner (pull-out corner storage unit) was included in a bottom corner unit, to make full use of the awkward space and ensure the entire unit was accessible.
