A year ago we upped sticks and moved about a mile and a half down the road into a detached house. This detached house was a bargain having been previously occupied by an elderly gentleman who was still quite happy living in the 1960s. Needless to say, the kitchen hadn’t quite moved in to the 21st century. Actually a more accurate description would be that it hadn’t quite moved in to the 1970s so a new kitchen was top of our “to do” lists. We had made a bit of money on our previous house but due to the new house also needing a complete rewire and other vital work, the budget for the kitchen wasn’t huge, but then neither is the kitchen – about £4000 was the top end to kit out a 9ft by 7ft space.MFI were one of a number of places we looked. They stock a good variety of Hygena and Schreiber kitchens
~ ~ ~ February ~ ~ ~We had sold our house and the hunt for the new kitchen began. We saw two styles in the MFI showroom that had really taken our eye and we met with Lisa who gave us brochures with all the current prices in and all the appliance packages that could be included. We had decided to go for the built in look and wanted to include a fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher which were all extra costs on top but affordable with the (never-ending) MFI sale. At this stage she advised us to spend some time going through the brochures so that we would go to the planning meeting completely prepared. We arranged our planning meeting for the following day.
Armed with the list of appliances we wished to purchase, all our measurements and the style of kitchen we had chosen we turned up for our meeting. Lisa met us personally at the time we had agreed and off we went to the computer. We then spent the next hour planning our kitchen. Lisa was extremely knowledgeable and managed to cram in all the appliances we required as well as giving us plenty of cupboards and drawers for storage. She was very well trained and experienced at seeing ways around any problems that cropped up. One example being that there was no way we were going to be able to squeeze in a conventional radiator along with everything else so she suggested a plinth heater which fits into any plinth and blows out hot air. It is ideal for a smaller kitchen and was something I had never heard of.Once the plans had been drawn up, Lisa did a costing.
