Kitchen vs. Interior Design

In episode 104, James speaks to interior designer Sarah on the topic of kitchen vs interior design. Can an interior designer offer you more for your money? Is the free design package offered by your local kitchen store REALLY free? Are the people fitting your kitchen actually even employed by the store? With many seeing the kitchen as the heart of the home, it is so important to make sure you get the kitchen you really want that works in a way that suits your life. So why limit yourself solely to the items in store? By going to a store, you could be missing out products and options and are a perfect match for you. No matter what your budget, Sarah gives us her top tips on how to make sure you get the best deal for your perfect kitchen, whether that is from within a store or from an interior designer.

Picking The Perfect Window

On this week’s podcast Juliette talks us through what she believes is one of the most important parts of every home renovation, windows. Windows are often costlier than people realise and so it’s important that you go shopping knowing exactly what you are looking for. Juliette talks us through the different types of window and the advantages and disadvantages involved with each. Juliette also explains the price tag attached to each type of window and gives her professional (and personal) opinion on her favourite windows. No idea whether vinyl, fiberglass, wood windows clad with fibreglass, aluminium windows clad with wood or steel and bronze windows are for you? Curious as to what U Factor, Low E Glass and SHGC is referring to? Undecided on casement window, double hung, single hung, awning windows, hopper windows or a sliding window? Clueless when it comes to true divided light, full divided light, simulated divided light or interior grill? If you want to make sure you understand ...

Reading Quotes and Understanding Extra Costs

In this week’s quick pod episode James uses his experience renovating over 250 homes in the UK to give us his top tips on reading quotations correctly. James explains why sometimes, opting for the cheapest quotation is not always the best option, and may actually end up costing you more money further down the line. By focusing on the numbers, rather than the meat of the quotation, we can make some crucial mistakes. Recognising how life changing it can be to have a house renovation, James talks us through his tips for ensuring that you encounter no hidden surprises along the way that will negatively affect this experience that you will remember for a lifetime. It turns out having your contractor round for a cup of tea could make all the difference!
