WE ARE ORIGINAL
CLIENTS COME FIRST
We put our clients first and create a comfortable environment where we can sit and discuss your ultimate dream kitchen. With a design lead approach, we do not agree with pressure sales or ‘the hard sell’. Together, we will listen to you and suggest design options that best suit you and your family’s lifestyle.
WORKING WITH OTHERS
We understand that taking on a renovation or building project is not always an easy process, therefore we will happily work with builders, architects and other trades to ensure clear communication throughout. We will produce plans and drawings to work from, so that things run smoothly.
Creating professional 3D visualisations will provide you how precise ideas of what your new space will look like. The realistic graphics are especially immersive using our VR goggles, taking you into the virtual room.
Space fitting furniture timeline 1972-2019
Fitted furniture was a new concept to the market.
Steve’s Dad, Melvyn Bloom, opened the first kitchen and bedroom showroom on Fredrick street, Cardiff City centre.
The showroom moved to Whitchurch Road when St David’s shopping centre was built.
Rational German kitchens were introduced to the UK and Space fitting furniture were one of the first showrooms to take on the brand. As well as Rational, Neff was adopted as a premium appliance brand.
Steve started working for the family business
At this point there were 3 generations working for the same company, as well as himself and his dad, Steve’s Grandma Ray would oversee the accounts.
The showroom moved to another premises on Whitchurch road under Claire and Steve’s ownership
This was the first time they had the opportunity to showcase their own design ideas.
The showroom moved to Colchester Avenue, this larger showroom was a great way to expand.
Bigger, more immersive displays allowed customers to visualise schemes and concepts.
2010 - 17
Numerous awards were obtained during this time including: • 2010- Finalists in the KBB Customer Service Award • 2014- Winner of the prestigious KBB Showroom Of The Year, hosted by comedian Al Murray. • 2014- Cardiff Life Interior Award together with Steven Salamon from Wally's delicatessen, winning the best retailer category. • 2015- KBB awards, Kitchen of the year finalist hosted by Tim Vine • 2017- KBB awards, Kitchen of the year finalist judged by renowned interior designer Linda Barker
