The Mail on Sunday

Can a new kitchen make pots of cash

31 July 2014

When renovating a home, the kitchen is one of the largest jobs in the project. Recently, The Mail on Sunday questioned to what extent a new kitchen can add value to your property. They enlisted the expertise of our designer, Grahame Jones, for tips and advice on what to look out for when purchasing a new kitchen.
The story focused on Anne Salisbury, who employed John Lewis of Hungerford to redesign her kitchen, 15 years after she asked us to create her original project. Grahame, who is quoted in the article, advised that traditional kitchen designs, such as our Artisan range, last longer than modern, hard edged kitchens in terms of style and durability.

Grahame also advised that our painted cabinetry has the toughest wear-rating of any surface one typically finds in the kitchen. He explains that customers should also avoid marble kitchen floors, as the stone is an alkali material which can be affected by acids, such as red wine or vinegar, even if sealed.

The article features our Crème de la Crème and Pure gloss kitchen ranges, as well as Anne Salisbury’s finished project.
