It’s always great when customers let us know how our worktops are making a difference to their homes. We were delighted to hear from customer Dave Wring just this week; not only is Mr Wring very pleased with his worktops, but also his newly refurbished property is due to appear in ‘Selfbuild & Design’ (a magazine containing advice for those hoping to build their dream homes).
In June this year, we supplied two worktops for Mr Wring who was in the middle of an ambitious redevelopment project. The family own a 200-year old cowshed which was formerly used to hold the largest dairy herd in St Columb until 1950. After a string of unreliable tenants, they decided to convert it into their dream home. The build took over 7 years to complete and makes a brilliant article for the magazine. Due to appear in January’s edition, we’ve had a sneak preview and think our solid counters complemented the overall design scheme beautifully. The project was a risky move, but it certainly paid off.
The Wring’s choice of oak worktops was ideal: oak’s strong grain pattern and natural features add character, making them a perfect fit in their traditional kitchen. The timber was not only used for countertops, but created a stunning, rustic dining table too, which takes centre stage in the open plan living room/kitchen – a truly atmospheric place to dine.
Hearing from the Wring family really made our day, and we were also very impressed with their worktop choice – oak was a perfect fit within the refurbished house, which has bags of character! We will soon be updating our customer reviews page with personal testimonials from customers like Mr Wring, so if you’ve recently purchased anything from us please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’d be thrilled to receive your feedback.
