Kitchen/Diner Renovation & Garage Conversion, Poole

Papps Cock & Co were delighted to be appointed to carry out a ground floor renovation on this detached country home in Poole. Our client’s vision was simple; to create an open and inviting kitchen/dining space to entertain family and friends as well as considering the more practical aspects of storage and functionality.

After taking the time to understand our client’s vision and assessing their property, we worked together to agree the layout and design, which included:

  • Creating a new entrance to the kitchen to maximise the space and enable a better flow of movement between the dining and kitchen areas
  • Converting half the garage into a utility room
  • Installing new partition walls to divide the functional spaces from the social spaces with plenty of storage

The project was completed within 3 months and our client was very pleased with the results:

“I recently used Papps Cock to convert half my garage to a utility room, my utility room to an overflow kitchen and then completely refurb my main kitchen. The guys took our vague ideas and aspirations and helped us to turn these into a beautiful reality. The project started as they often do with a ‘can you come round and take a look at a small job I have in mind’ conversation.  We wanted to free up some space in our utility room by moving the washing machine and dryer into the back of the garage, but also connect these rooms with a new internal door.  They understood what I was trying to achieve and were able to quickly provide me with a quote outlining what would be required.  We needed to create a new doorway, add another door to divide a room, raise a floor, add plumbing, heating, lighting, a new roof and insulation.  All of a sudden this small job took on a whole new dimension, but with their help we were able to appreciate not just what would be involved, but how it would become a very practical addition to our home.  The team were confident that they would be able to cover all aspects of the work, and project manage the renovation for me.  As the job started to take shape we discussed our plans for the old utility room and ultimately what we wanted to do with the kitchen.  This involved a little more remodelling but with their help we were again convinced it could be done and that Papps Cock would be able to manage the project for us. This included putting us in touch with the kitchen designers and worktop suppliers.  Once we’d agreed on the price, PC took care of all the details and managed the trades people, so we didn’t have to worry at all about coordinating who would be coming when.  Whilst we decided to independently purchase all the appliances, PC were on hand to make sure everything would fit and work together, offering some expert advice along the way (and some very much needed storage!). As the rooms were beginning to take shape, PC were able to accommodate a number of additional requirements that we had, which apparently are quite common, so we were never made to feel like we were asking for too much.  Any changes that incurred a cost were agreed in advance, and we were never left not knowing what we were paying for. The guys on site were conscientious and treated our home with respect, even when knocking holes in walls!

Overall PC have delivered a first class job. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and would happily use again.
