Well-crafted kitchen transformations are dollars wisely invested – and one to take pleasure in every single day.

“Over the last 18 months people have put money back into their homes,” says owner Mark Allworthy of Bates Joinery.

“Most of our suppliers have had supply issues, however alternatives throughout the supply chain have been available, and with rationing and forward planning, its all been running smoothly.

“Blum who is our main supplier of drawer and hinge fittings are back to normal with their supply.”

This worldwide company produces European innovations. Mark says the trend is darker colours and wood grain finishes. The difference this time round is brightening the depth with clever LED lighting. Joinery is fitted with strategically placed power points, ready to plug and play.

Soft-touch matt black and brass tap wear is still popular. And now gold and brass faucets and sinks bowls add a little glamour, as do engineered stone and porcelain benches.

Bates Joinery is running at a 12 to 15 week wait after the planning – that’s a new bespoke kitchen by spring.
