Case Study

Kitchen Renovation in Churchdown

Kitchen Renovation in Gloucestershire
Jane and Colin of Churchdown, Gloucestershire had an out of date and very tired looking kitchen and decided that it was time for a renovation.

The Kitchen was also part of an extension previously built by some other builders that weren’t done correctly leaving them with a cold, uneven floor and with very narrow working space.
The Consultation Process
We sat down with Jane and Colin and went through the process of choosing colours and styles until they found something that they loved. We then provided ideas and solutions for the best route to take in terms of providing as much space as possible in their kitchen environment.

Modernisation and Space Saving


Light Grey
Mint Green


Once Jane and Colin had decided on the light and airy shade of grey for the units we then moved on to the wall colours. We suggested a subtle mint green wall finish, this exudes a cool calmness to the working areas of the kitchen while fully complementing the unit colour as well as the dark bronze handles that were picked for the units.

To complete the look Jane and Colin opted for fully tiled splashbacks throughout the whole kitchen for a more modern feel to the working surfaces. We fitted LED Spotlights along with LED under pelmet lighting to give a nice contemporary feel.


We knew the extension wasn’t done correctly by the previous builders and we hit a few obstacles when we started ripping out the old kitchen. We discovered dodgy wiring and pipeworks, to overcome this we removed the wiring and the pipeworks and stripped the walls right back to the brickwork and took the ceiling right back to a shell.

We levelled out all the uneven floor slabs and set down a layer of underfloor heating then screeded the floors after. We fully rewired the electrics and correctly plumbed the pipes.

We plastered and then refitted the kitchen with Minerva(link) worktops complemented with the magnet (link) kitchen units, We fitted new skirting boards and flooring to take the project right down to the turnkey finish as promised.

Project Management

Managed completely by ourselves at the McGuinness group. Naturally, we faced a few challenges when ripping out the kitchen. However, in any planning, there should always be some time factored in for such situations. The problems with the previous build that we faced were easily overcome and the clients were kept up to date.

Throughout every stage of the Kitchen renovation project, we implemented changes from our client's daily input for the ever-growing project. All fixture and fitting times were well-coordinated and kept on schedule and this resulted in a successful renovation project.

The Result

Client satisfaction is key to our business and our clients were delighted with the transformation. The result was a spacious, warm and inviting kitchen with plenty of room to work in. A modern contemporary look that met the brief and exceeded our clients' expectations.
