Having a new kitchen can have a bigger impact on your lifestyle than you might think.

According to a recent survey, based on more than 3,000 responses from UK homeowners using the Houzz® platform, more than a third of homeowners report leading a healthier lifestyle after a kitchen renovation, from eating more fruits and vegetables to preparing more meals at home. It also leads to other lifestyle changes such as spending more family time in the kitchen and entertaining more.

Shaun Davies Home Solutions of Cardiff has won “Best Of Customer Service” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home renovation and design. The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom design company was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than one million active home building, home improvement and design industry professionals.

Colin Jackson CBE, christens his new Shaun Davies Home Solutions kitchen, in a brand new series of Welsh Bites.

Our latest kitchen renovation project in Penarth has generated quite a buzz on social media and home design websites such as Houzz.

British Ceramic Tile has also just selected it to feature in it's real homes section, thanks to Shaun and the client's brave use of these stunning Ted Baker Geometric feature tiles which make it a real showpiece kitchen.

So what do you do if you get asked to do a cookery show but fear your kitchen is not as good as your soufflés? Call the Shaun Davies Home Solutions team of course!

That's exactly what our latest client, former Olympic medal winner Colin Jackson, CBE, did.

A thumbs up for our design skills from Mr Ted Baker none the less………………

These hot of the press project photos really capture the essence of the kitchen and bathroom we have just completed in Wordsworth Avenue, Penarth.

Nothing better than starting the week with a great customer review. Thank you Mr Matthews!

Here are a few snap shots from the latest kitchen project to join our porfolio of work.

We took a tired kitchen with a poor, anti social and impractical layout and transformed it into an open plan kitchen, dining room and snug, with a cosy and stylish traditional feel - perfect for family life.

 We really appreciate it when our customers taking time out of their busy lives to leave us a review. A big thank you to Mr Stephens for this glowing one last week:

"I invited Shaun Davies Home Solutions to revamp my kitchen which involved the installation and fitting of new work surfaces, sink, cooker and gas hob and high quality tile flooring. The work was of a very high standard and carried out with skill and professionalism and to my entire satisfaction. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a top rate home improvement specialist."

Shaun Davies Home Solutions is bringing the next step in virtual reality to its kitchen, bedroom and bathroom designs!

There is no doubt that visualising the end result is one of the biggest challenges facing those undertaking a new home project. When it’s hard to visualise, making design choices can sometimes feel daunting and stressful.

Are you looking to update your kitchen, and fancy more contemporary look? Then why not follow designer leaders and step away from the typical high gloss units and try a matt finish kitchen instead. We love the matte look as it can add an edgy sophistication to kitchen and in particular recommend Kitchen Stori’s brand new Strada Matte range. It has a beautifully modern, handle-less door design which exudes a silky, durable, matt painted finish. The range also has curved doors which gives the kitchen a premium high end designer look.

Wordsworth Avenue, Penarth:

A glowing review from another happy customer! Fantastic kitchen and bathroom renovation project. Thanks for the great review on FreeIndex:

" My husband and I had never been involved with building work before and were nervous when searching for a company to take on our rather large project of a new living/dining/kitchen and bathroom. We had bought our house purely to renovate and make into our dream home, therefore getting the detail spot on was important to us.

Photos of one of our recently completed projects have just been added to our project portfolio page.

The kitchen, in a traditional apartment on Westgate Street, Cardiff, incorporated a beautiful oak worktop, shaped to create a breakfast bar seating area to maximise space in a bijou kitchen.

It’s that time of year again –Spring is almost upon us and so is the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom industry’s largest and most anticipated trade show, KBB 2016.

This weekend we will be visiting the show on your behalf and absorbing all the latest designs, trends and pioneering innovations that are being previewed by the 350 world leading KBB suppliers attending the show, from furniture and accessories to components and surfaces.

Enjoy a Christmas gift from us!

Spend £10,000 or more on your kitchen, (excluding installation) and receive the revolutionary Franke Omni 4-in-1 tap worth £1349 for FREE.

Imagine if you could actually ‘step into’ your new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom at the design stage....... With Shaun Davies Home Solutions, you can.

We use the very latest ArtiCAD computer aided design technologies to present your dream room design in high definition 3D with a panoramic viewer.

According to Kitchen Stori, the UK and Ireland's leading kitchen brand, one of the big looks for kitchens trending at the moment and set to be even bigger next year is a smooth, painted kitchen door finish.

The painted door gives a classic feel to the kitchen, yet the smooth finish injects a more contemporary edge, making it perfect for those seeking to achieve a seamless blend of traditional and modern in their homes.

This month, tiling is in the spotlight as we add an exciting array of new products and ranges to our portfolio.

Choosing the perfect tile is the type of detailing that can take a kitchen or bathroom project from average to amazing.  

Every tile in our wall and floor tile portfolio has been carefully selected to make the process of choosing the right tile much easier for our clients.  The range narrows down what can sometimes be a daunting selection as offered by most tiling retailers, to encapsulate the best in classic ceramic, stone and porcelain tiles, along with a selection of tiles that follow the latest trends. 

These are totally independent reviews, that are supplied and vetted by the "Free Index" business website.

AS THE FINAL FINISHING TOUCHES TO OUR NEW DESIGN STUDIO TAKE PLACE, SHAUN DAVIES EXPLAINS HOW IT IS NO ORDINARY SHOWROOM.

"My vision for our Design Studio stemmed from a general dislike of standard kitchen and bathroom showrooms. Their layouts never reflect a true or typical space, and the ambience is generally sales orientated and not conducive to decision making.

Shaun Davies Home Solutions has now been made an ‘Official Retailer’ of Franke kitchen products, bringing many exclusive benefits to our customers.

Franke of Switzerland is the World’s foremost kitchen sink manufacturer, renowned for a commitment to quality and a flair for design. It is also a leading name in kitchen taps, cooker hoods, ceramic and fragranite kitchen sinks.

We are delighted to announce that we have just been appointed as a retailer of Faber cooker hoods

Here’s a sneak peak of the solid oak internal larder that went in to our new design studio today....We love it  - tell us what you think........

Shaun Davies Home Solutions has just been signed up as a retailer for the exclusive ILVE Italian cooking collection.

Our brief was to replace a standard “developers” style kitchen with something a little more contemporary and functional. With the apartment having a wonderful waterside view, we needed to use colours & materials that worked harmoniously with the ever present landscape without stealing the show.

Silestone has chosen our new Design Studio to become an ‘Elite Showroom’ for its luxury quartz worksurfaces.
