Beau-Port Kitchens opened a new showroom in Southsea, since then they have been designing and installing, stunning, cutting edge contemporary kitchens and handmade traditional painted kitchens in homes on the south coast. This small family business offer a very personal service and have over twenty years experience and expertise with showrooms in the north and south of the county. They are delighted to report that one of their latest kitchens has been featured in this month's Southsea Lifestyle magazine. As reported by Kate Thompson "It has changed the way our customers live"
"We knew what we wanted, but we weren't entirely sure it would work," said Chris. "We wanted a much more social space where we could eat with friends."And what we have now has surpassed our expectations"
When Chris and Derra decided to have a new kitchen, they had little idea of how it would transform their lives. The busy executives who live in a conservation area in the heart of Southsea turned to Mark Johnson and the expert team at Beau-Port Kitchens in Marmion Road to make their dream a reality. And the result has revolutionised the way the couple now live.
Derra explained they had been thinking about having a new kitchen for some time, and if the space would allow, they were keen to have a central kitchen island. Work began in January 2019, and within six weeks, they had a workable kitchen that was completely finished by May. "I was really impressed by Mark's attention to detail – things were measured to the millimetre.
"I was really impressed by Mark's attention to detail – things were measured to the millimetre. He also came up with ingenious ideas that we wouldn't have considered or even known about," said Chris.The futuristic looking kitchen has a central island with under-counter lighting that makes it glow. The Island featured a wine fridge and induction hob. Space was at a premium; and the extractor fan, which discreetly rises from the counter with a touch of a button, is both practical and pleasing.The ovens are wi-fi enabled; so the evening meal can be heated using the same technology as Hive heating.
The kitchen is in the basement of their Victorian home, and before the transformation, the couple admitted they didn't spend much time there.But now they come home and are instantly drawn to the new heart of their home. "We can sit and chat as we prepare the meal – and on a Sunday afternoon we often both sit here with our laptops as we prepare for the week ahead.
