Getting your internal affairs in order by renovating your kitchen or bathroom can have a dramatic effect on the value of your home, and is sure to win favour with family and friends.
James Guest started planning kitchens and bathrooms forty years ago with his family. Ten years later he opened his own shop, Raffles, on Linkfield Road, naming his business after this particular pocket of Redhill, Raffles Bridge. In fact, the original name is Reffell’s Bridge after Henry Reffell who ran a brewery here in the mid 19th century.
Having major renovations is a big deal, so James likes to take things in little steps. First a design pow-wow at the shop, then a measuring-up visit to your home, then presentation of the digital plans about a week later – and that’s when the real debate begins! Which style will you elect? How conservative or liberal is your budget? How much labour is involved? And, most important of all, will your neighbours be green with envy?
“I love a challenge as well as meeting and helping people!” says James, who won’t kick things off until he’s got a clear mandate to create the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams – one that’s not only strong and stable, but liked by the many, not the few.
