How far would you go?

It is extraordinary how far people will travel to get the right thing.  Even in this age of internet shopping, purchasers still value the importance of actually going to see and try out the things they want to buy, especially the higher value purchases connected to home improvements, such as new kitchens, bathrooms, bedroom furniture and other items of furniture.

They then also have a better idea of the quality of the products and also very importantly the service they will received.  When investing in any major projects on your home, it is essential that you find the right products, best quality, service, value and affordability, plus the right people to work with who you feel you can trust to do the very best job.

Cooking from scratch is back in foodie fashion

Are you tired of the disappointment of ready meals?  Apparently cooking from scratch is back and that’s official, well it must be - Mary Berry says so!  In her recent TV series she is seen close to our patch at the farmers’ market at Guildford, selecting lots of seasonal food to turn into delicious meals.

Property TV programmes demonstrate the importance of a good kitchen

BP8607_818

I love the property programmes on the TV - ‘Escape to the Country’, ‘Homes under the Hammer’, ‘Location Location Location’ - and I watch all of them whenever I can.

With so many properties featured and an equal number of characters looking to move home, it is interesting to see the one thing the house-hunters all have in common is their need for and appreciation of a good kitchen.  Often referred to as the most important part of the property and the heart of every home.
