Well known as key rooms in any new home, adopting the right approach to creating stunning kitchens and bathrooms is an important element in any development. PHPD chats to Gill Mathison, founder of Create Homes, about her approach to these vital spaces.
Q. Kitchens and bathrooms are well-known to be key rooms in any new home. How do you approach the design and specification of these spaces?
At Create Homes our main objective is to create beautifully built family homes, that offer the perfect balance of country living for a modern lifestyle. As a company, Create Homes is synonymous with quality. That’s why we have chosen Stuart Frazer to professionally design and install beautiful handleless SieMatic kitchens in all our new homes. The clean and unpretentious lines of a SieMatic kitchen fits seamlessly within the living space design of all Create Homes. And with great functionality, timeless styling and integrated appliances, it can be enjoyed for decades.
Q. What styles of kitchen and bathrooms have you chosen to use on recent developments?
All of our kitchens are open plan kitchen/diners and where space allows, we try to incorporate a central island and a sit up breakfast bar to allow informal as well as formal seated dining. All our bathrooms and ensuites include good quality sanitaryware from Vitra and Vado and are all fitted with chrome heated towel rails.
Q. Do you place particular emphasis on any areas of specification, such as appliances or fittings?
We believe in style and substance and so we have really gone the extra mile to ensure our Create Home’s will exceed expectations. This means paying attention to not only the large details but also the smaller ones. We include high quality brands as standard in all of our homes, giving the customer the peace of mind that they are choosing a quality dream home and lifestyle, built to last.
Q. Are branded items featured within the specification?
We feature branded items in our specification such as; SieMatic kitchen units, Neff Hide & Slide oven, Neff dishwasher, Neff electrical induction hob, Zanussi integrated fridge freezer and Integrated wine cooler, Vado Chrome shower and Porcelenosa tiled walls.
Q. Do you offer any upgrade opportunities to purchasers and, if so, what are the more popular options?
Yes there is still plenty of free rein for purchasers to add their own stamp and to make sure that they end up with a kitchen that suits their exact needs. Create Homes also offer a wide choice of finishes – as well as other upgrade options to get that truly unique look for your kitchen. The most popular upgrade options are Quartz and Corian work tops.
