At Nicholas Hythe we believe good design marries the beautiful and the practical to create the perfect dream kitchen for a client. Itâ€™s not all about the look (important as that is) but itâ€™s about individual requirements, practicality and ergonomics. On top of that, and perhaps most importantly, we listen intently to a potential clientâ€™s wishes about what they want and how they use their kitchen.
So why are we succeeding when many â€˜big ticketâ€™ retailers are struggling? As with most successful businesses itâ€™s about giving customers what they want at a price theyâ€™re prepared to pay for the quality and service offered. Our long experience told us that what potential clients wanted was to rely on a company that will take all the stress and hassle away from fitting their dream kitchen.
And, in a nutshell, thatâ€™s what we do really well! When you start to think about the complexity of fitting a new kitchen and all the trades that have to be managed to ensure it turns just the way youâ€™ve agreed with us, it can give all but the professional supplier sleepless nights!
The 1970s are also remembered for glam-rock, punk and disco and, if you were growing up like I was, the classic must have toys such as the Chopper bike, skateboard and the smurfs! That little wave of nostalgia was brought on by a comment by my brother and business partner after Iâ€™d mentioned that the pictures of a kitchen weâ€™d recently installed had a very modern yet retro feel.
Now the memories of the riots are fading and the riotwombles are hopefully a thing of the past, the central message of my blog was about how the Government could help small businesses – like ours and the Reevesâ€™ – to grow and prosper and be central points within our communities.
With so many kitchen companies looking for business, no doubt all doing a job they love and are presumably good at, being successful in these difficult times means we have to bring something else to the proverbial party to win new clients.
