A growing family is an absolute joy but accommodation that has happily housed a couple can quickly become crowded when new family members and grandchildren arrive.
Parents-of-four Susan and David Taylor were delighted to welcome back grown-up kids and their extended family but faced a space dilemma when everyone got together to socialise.
Reluctant to move from the home they love at Elrick in Aberdeenshire, they found the solution in Bon Accord Glass, a company they already knew and trusted since contracting them to install a conservatory ten years ago.
‘We were so impressed with their work then that we decided to see what they could do,’ explained Susan, ‘and we didn’t even consider anyone else.’ Bon Accord came up with a number of ideas and the Taylors ultimately opted for a large light-filled extension into the garden incorporating the space occupied by their original long, narrow kitchen, utility room and conservatory.
And one great bonus when they came to source a new kitchen to enhance the extra living space, was that Bon Accord now has a dedicated kitchen showroom with a fabulous range of Beeck kitchens. Susan and David chose sleek white high-gloss, handleless units with a Silestone quartz worktop, a huge island with induction hob, pop-up extractor fan and large wooden bistro table and matching stools. They especially love their stunning bright blue splashback behind the sink unit.
The project, which included a new front door, took just over three months to complete and, thanks to Bon Accord’s team of experts, the work was seamless. ‘We didn’t have to chase anyone up, we got weekly bulletins about what was happening next and any changes or adaptations were accommodated, no problem,’ said Susan. ‘The quality is so good and the staff so approachable and friendly, they went out of their way to be helpful.
‘With all the glass in the extension it’s almost like a garden room, we’re just delighted with it. It’s now a big, friendly sociable space and it suits us down to a tee.’
