A Kitchen Refurbishment in an Unlikely Place

An unusual location for us required all the usual skills of our team to transform a kitchen and toilet area at St Luke’s church, Kentish Town.


First we stripped out all the existing units, uplifted the floor coverings and open up the enclosed cupboard area. Using a Quartz stone worktop and splash back, we built a structure for the work surface to rest on above fridges and dishwasher.

We also carried out all alterations to the electric and plumbing supply. Before removing the existing under-the-counter water heater, we isolated the electric and water supplies, and then set aside the heater for re-use later. Having the water heater power supply, plumbing and drainage, we re-instated the water heater into new cupboards under the counter.

A significant part of this work in the kitchen was to supply and lay (if necessary) the wood, self levelling latex screed, safety vinyl flooring and carpet tiles along with appropriate joining strips and thresholds.

In the toilet area, we removed the existing door and frame, and stud out before insulating. We supplied and installed plasterboard and skim ready for painting. We also replaced tiles where currently missing and re-grout everything.


The installed worktop was a difficult shape, and we had to cut around the pillars to ensure that it was fully fitted. As a registered charity, we also had to be mindful of keeping the project within the church’s budget, which we were successful in doing.


We created a smart, clean and safe new kitchen and toilet area, fully powered and complete with storage.
