Gary enjoyed numerous cookery courses at Braxted Park, near Kelvedon. He came to admire the kitchen there and on finding out that Davonport was responsible for designing and manufacturing the kitchen he and Nikki followed Davonport on Facebook and started to gather ideas of which of Davonport’s kitchen designs they liked.
Thanks to this, when Nikki and Gary came to Davonport they had a clear idea of what they were looking for – they wanted a complete aesthetic overhaul to create a shaker style kitchen. As part of their visit, at the beginning of the design process, Nikki and Gary were taken around the Davonport factory. They were able to see for themselves the quality of timber and craftsmanship that goes into every kitchen. This was the deciding factor in choosing Davonport to create their new kitchen.
Having two children meant it was very important to Nikki and Gary to keep disturbance to a minimum therefore no structural work was undertaken. The sink remained on the island and the cooker was only moved a short distance, therefore disruption to the space was reduced.
