Will the government’s relaxation of planning rules really help local fitted kitchen companies like ours?

So the government’s decided to relax planning rules to help boost the economy. On the face of it, suppliers of new fitted kitchens like us should be welcoming this development. But I can’t get more than mildly excited about the opportunity.

What’s the difference between good and great kitchen design?

At Nicholas Hythe we believe good design marries the beautiful and the practical to create the perfect dream kitchen for a client. It’s not all about the look (important as that is) but it’s about individual requirements, practicality and ergonomics. On top of that, and perhaps most importantly, we listen intently to a potential client’s wishes about what they want and how they use their kitchen.

Exciting times in St Ives for Nicholas Hythe Kitchen Design Studio

So why are we succeeding when many ‘big ticket’ retailers are struggling? As with most successful businesses it’s about giving customers what they want at a price they’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, that’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 you’ve agreed with us, it can give all but the professional supplier sleepless nights!

So, what does make Nicholas Hythe Kitchen Design Studio different?

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.

What’s your new kitchen’s guarantee actually worth?

You can’t fail notice all the television advertising of new fitted kitchens currently taking place.  As regular readers of our blogs know we’re always happy when our larger competitors spend big promoting their kitchen offers.  Why?  Because advertising creates higher consumer awareness of the sector which potential customers then explore via search engines and find […]

What you secretly need to know when buying a new kitchen!

Everybody we speak to about what we do, friends, neighbours, clients, everybody reading this blog will have experienced or heard about the kitchen company from hell.  Stories about poor fits, leaky plumbing – you name it we’ve probably heard it. And despite the fact that often all we can do is sympathise, such stories are […]

How much should you spend updating your kitchen?

The number eight. At first, it appears to be an unassuming number – until you realise the importance of it to the entire world around us. It’s the number that ensures that we humans exist (it’s the atomic number of oxygen and the number of known B vitamins); it can be a force for good […]

Cheap kitchens don’t have to be poor kitchens

Unsurprisingly in today’s tough economic climate, every customer we’re lucky enough to talk to is after the best-priced new kitchen they can find for their hard-earned money.   I choose the phrase ‘best-priced kitchen’ rather than ‘cheap kitchen’ because, having seen three clients this week each one has had a view in terms of what the […]

The Apple equivalent of the fitted kitchens market?

With the worldwide economy continuing to contract as consumers and businesses rein in any discretionary income they have – something as retailers of new fitted kitchens we’re heavily reliant on – I’m struck by two news stories that have come out over the past week about Apple and Sony and how they’re each reacting to […]
