Timber Framed Extension in Sheffield

This timber framed extension in Sheffield has been an absolute joy to work on over the last month or so.

Our team were given a list of requirements, criteria and idea’s from our customer on the overall look which was to be achieved.

From the start our team worked with our customer to deliver a bespoke small timber framed extension.

To accomplish this our team knocked through a large area to the rear of the property and built a timber framed extension to create a truly wonderful, light and vast area for our customer to enjoy with their family.

The result has created a stunning open plan kitchen, dining and living area.  With a beautiful, high quality, traditional fitted kitchen with ample work space and storage, deep coloured practical units, solid wood shelving, white tiles and high gloss work surfaces the overall feel and look of the kitchen is effortlessly stunning and homely.

After working with our expert suppliers we were able to install aluminium folding doors and a feature window which were custom made to our requirements. Together with cedar wood cladding and white rendering our team accomplished an extension which has an overall timeless and elegant feel.

The amount of features that this project has had installed to create this bespoke extension are vast. Not forgetting the smaller details like flooring, internal and external lighting, coving, feature picture rail – all ensure that the new extension is in keeping with the existing house and therefore only adds to the value of the property due to the amount of detail and workmanship undertaken from construction to completion.

As you can see we still have some finer details to undertake but we couldn’t be more happier with the outcome of the work our team have done.

Transparent Pricing & Excellent Communication

Transparent Pricing & Excellent Communication

Transparent pricing and excellent communication are some of the wonderful comments our lovely customer has given recently.

On this project completed in the Autumn/Winter 2015 our customer came to us with a full house renovation.

After she had been let down by other builders and the house had been condemned by environmental health our lovely customer came to Milestone to see if we could help.

Initially due to the timing we didn’t think we could help, however after finishing projects early we released the time to help and we are so glad we did.

Albeit the project had its challenges we were able to work closely with our customer to give her the house she dreamed of.

We are thrilled to receive her testimonial and comments on the attached video……check it out!

Kitchen Islands

Kitchen Islands

Traditional kitchens are predominantly installed against a kitchen wall, however kitchen islands are becoming more and more popular over recent years.

Obviously it is advantageous if your kitchen is large enough to accommodate a kitchen island, however whether the island is large or small a kitchen island has many benefits.

Most of our customers want a kitchen island not only to complete the design of their kitchen but also to provide them with more cupboard spaces.

As well as providing you with more cupboard space a kitchen island can also be a useful addition to your kitchen by either integrating a hob, cooker, sink or other large kitchen appliances such as dishwasher or oven.

Obviously by having this addition certain utilities will need to be sought such as electricity, gas and water, however in the long run the addition of these facilities in your kitchen island can be very advantageous when you consider the space and kitchen work surfaces you will be provided with.

As well as these facilities, space and work surface and obviously if your kitchen is big enough, at one side of your kitchen island you could create a breakfast bar.

By having extra addition it can also become a focal point for a busy family whereby children can sit around the bar whilst you cook and are busy in the kitchen.  For those whom don’t have children, this addition can become a great focal point when entertaining as you can cook, drink and entertain all at the same time whilst you engage with your family and friends.

Whether you have enough space in your existing kitchen or you would simply like to plan your new kitchen more appropriately to maximise your kitchen space, give Milestone a call.

L Shape Kitchens Sheffield

L Shape Kitchens Sheffield

With limited space in most Sheffield kitchens, the traditional L shape kitchen never ceases to be a success.

This style of kitchen gives an occupant maximum storage space whilst utilising the area with which it occupies. From contemporary, traditional, inset fireplace stoves to the minimalistic – the choice can be whatever you want it to be.

Milestone has designed and created many L shape kitchens within the Sheffield and surrounding areas due to the size and style of the properties in the area.

We’ve had great success with these styles of kitchens and whilst some customers have required a single storey house extensions, many have simply utilised the space they already have or they have converted the basement into an amazing L shaped kitchen that gives the home owner all the requirements they need.

From Belfast sinks, stainless steel splashbacks and appliances, glass front cupboards, marble worktops, skylights and bespoke lighting – the list of requirements has been endless. But regardless, Milestone love utilising their experiences to meet the needs of their customers.

If you would like a bespoke design consultation with one of our team, please contact us today for more information and to book an appointment.

Brighten a Dark Kitchen

Brighten a Dark Kitchen

If your in need of brightening your dark kitchen, we can help.  One of the greatest and most positive starts to a day is enjoying a coffee in your bright naturally lit kitchen.  However if your kitchen is dark due to not having any form of natural light or you are constantly turning on the light to see maybe it is time to look at your options.

Layout of Cabinets

If you are renewing your kitchen think about where to place the units.  Well placed units can give you great advantages for natural light especially if strategically placed so the light bounces off of them.

If you use french doors or full length windows, place the units away from this source, this will give you maximum light and flow through the kitchen.

If you are fortunate enough to have a large single wall whereby units can run along the length, this makes use of the rest of the room to add french doors and to bring the outdoors inside.

Harness a Garden

Make full potential of a single wall kitchen by ensuring all gadgetry and storage are selected so you do not notice the lack of cupboard space.  By using a single wall kitchen, as described above, this ensures that more windows and french doors can be used without the units blocking the view/access. Pale painted wall and decking/paving outside doors will complete the overall feel of creating the overall feel.

Glass

Use as much glass in the form of windows and large french doors or bifold doors as possible.  Include sky lights if necessary and don’t use glass with lead inserts as this will give a darker feel to a room.

Sky Searching

If you are fortunate to be able to have a single storey extension or are planning on building one, as mentioned previously, use sky lights or angled roof light to ensure maximum natural light floods the room.

 

Brighten a Dark Kitchen

 

Flooring

One of the first permanent aspects of a kitchen and the largest light reflecting fixture is the flooring, therefore it is always essential to give this great consideration.  We would recommend using a low sheen floor for its light reflecting attributes and maintenance.  Try not to go for dark colours but flooring with a vein through them will give forgiveness for the odd piece of dirt between cleaning.

Pale Units

It’s not entirely rocket science but if you pick very dark units you will not get the overall look you want. Try white or a pale grey or pastel coloured unit to give that extra warmth and light reflection for the optimum effect.

Work the Worktop

We would recommend either installing a white worktop or to add some warmth to room, why not try natural wood thick work surfaces.  A light wood will give the warmth whilst keeping the room light and airy.

Splash out on Splashback

There are many products on the market from  tiles to PVC cladding, tile effect panelling and stainless steel panelling.  By choose the correct colour and effect will give you a great homely, warm and light feel to your new kitchen.

Kitchen Extension Sheffield

Kitchen Extension Sheffield

If you are in the Sheffield area and are wondering where to start with a kitchen extension, Milestone have a few pointers to help you on your way;

Firstly you need to find a professional. One of the best ways to find an experienced designer, architect and builder is by asking family and friends who’s projects you have admired when visiting.

Check out the boards and signs that architects and builders put up outside a site whilst they are undertaking the works and check them out on social media, google and their website. Get a feel of the work they’ve undertaking, check out their testimonials and compile as much information as possible before you make a decision to commence your project with them.

Most industries have a professional body – search online and check their credentials out.  Also ask to see their current and valid insurance certifications.  You have every right to be sure you are dealing with a true professional whom truly cares about you and your project.

Make sure that when the said professional visits you in your home they are not too sales orientated, they listen, they discuss and most importantly they make you feel at ease in their presence.  This is an extremely good indicator as if they do none of these aspects how do you know you will get what you have paid for?

A good professional will not only listen to your specifications but they will advise you on certain aspects.  It’s a good indicator if they bring some idea’s to the ‘table’ and even give you idea’s that maybe even you haven’t thought of.  A true experienced trades person or professional will be able to advise you on not only the legalities of undertaking a project but also the little extra’s that will give a project the WOW factor.

As mentioned before, check out their social media, most successful professionals will be on all of the social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to name but a few, also search for them on YouTube, most give regular video updates on the site which gives you a clear indication that they actually care about the work they do and shows you what they can do.
