Kitchen Renovation

This is a great opportunity to look at the results of a kitchen renovation.
Various trades are involved including Kitchen specialist, Timber Floor specialist, Electrician, Plumber and Painter.
The hardwood floor is 20 years old but is retained and patched to perfection.

This particular renovation requires the Timber Floor specialist to patch and add timber to an existing floor and make it match.
The Kitchen specialist needed to create custom benches install them and template out the benchtops.
The Electician was required to connect everything up.
The Plumber needs to connect sinks etc.
The Painter had to help with the colour choice, prepare all surfaces and work within the scope of the other trades.
