Replace shower unit, retile and refloor bathroom Bathroom Fitting
Kevin did an excellent job from start to finish, and we could not be happier with our new bathroom.
We chose Kevin for the job because he listened to what we wanted and was able to provide expert advice and guidance throughout - he showed us that some of our ideas would not work, explained why, offered alternatives and the end result shows he was right every time.
Throughout the job Kevin kept us fully informed on progress and next steps, was flexible to fit our time scales, and was always checking in to make sure we were happy with progress. The quality of the work is first class - no complaints at all.
We have no hesitation recommending Kevin - honest, experienced and full of ideas. A really nice bloke too.

Complete bathroom re-fit Bathroom Fitting
We're really pleased with the end result and were so impressed with the work as the job went along. Kevin helped re-imagine the space in our bathroom right on his first visit and he saw that through to completion to a very high standard. Exceptionally tidy, excellent time-keeping, quality of work and all-round service. Would recommend to anyone. Project also did not go over-budget so you know Kevin isn't over-quoting for the sake of it.

replace bathroom suite Bathroom Fitting
Our beautiful Bathroom. We would like to highly recommend Kevin from Templar Bathrooms, a true professional ,many thanks . Kevin consulted with us weeks before work started, regarding our ideas, tastes, and we made our choices of floor tiles and shower cubicle. I had a distinctive bath shape,taps and hand basin in mind, the rest we left completely up to Kevin. He forgot none of our likes and dislikes. Each day we were amazed by his work , his perfectionism, and his tidiness. All his daily debris was taken away and the bathroom was as tidy and functional as possible. We had chosen a grey-marble effect ceramic tile for the walls, which is gorgeous and the bath is a deep one with taps in the middle , this was Kevins suggestion. Kevin chose this himself after our chat. He fitted lovely flat , sleek modern taps with a shower head- absolutely beautiful. When Kevin is presented with an obstacle he is excellent at 'thinking outside the box'. Problems with piping, and juggling fittings in our postage sized bathroom were sorted out superbly. Kevin chose a black/grey chrome mosaic strip in line with our taps which added a wonderful highlight behind the bath and echoed the shower wall perfectly.I cannot fault Kevins work, his professionalism,his artistic vision , and his finished work. We love it so much that we immediately booked him for another project. Kevins co-worker , worked like a 'trojan', thanks Danny.

refurb existing bathroom Tiling
Contacted Kevin, to look at a refurbishment of existing bathroom. After consultation, we decided to go for a full refit. Kevin talked us through all costs, fixtures and fittings. The original price quoted was honoured. Excellent service from start to end. We were given an indication each day of what would be achieved and it was. All rubbish was taken away each evening. Dust sheets were used throughout the job. No mess at all. The bathroom took a total of 6 working days. We could not fault any of the work provided by Kevin and Dan.
They have provided us with a beautiful first class bathroom. Thank you very much. We certainly would not hesitate to recommend Templar bathrooms for any job.

En-suites Bathroom Fitting
Kev had a big job on his hands with our house. He completed 3 en-suites from scratch, however had to contend with the very poor workmanship that had already been done previously.
His work is nothing short of impeccable, he has done an amazing job and I am very happy with the work completed. He had a vision that I could not see but I'm so pleased I trusted his judgement because the end result is amazing. Thanks Kev, I would highly recommend you 😄

It was evident that Kevin takes pride in his work and his attention to detail was reassuring ,ensuring the finished product was first class

Bathroom fitters Bathroom Fitting
I am very pleased to share my happiness and joy to have a very decent and up to high standard ensuite finished by Kevin and Dan today.
We posted a job on mybuilder and we decided to hire kevin from his work history and lots of positive feedback.
And when he started work i was very pleased day by day as he proceeded with the job.
Kevin carried out a complete renovation of our ensuite to very high standards and left the area in a clean and tidy manner at the end of each day.
Our finished ensuite looks unbelieveable and incredible. I was verry pleased with his work and happy that he gave his guarantee for the work carried out by him.
He was very tidy, punctual, polite, friendly and a pleasure to have around our house.
We will definitely be hiring kevin to get our bathroom rennovated as soon as we have saved up the money.
I would highly recommend kevin to my friends.
Thanks kevin and Dan.

Kevin did wonders with our small bathroom. From having a badly done wet room we now have a lovely tiled bathroom with shower, bath, new toilet and sink unit. I never thought he would fit it all in but he did and it looks lovely. Work was completed on time and to a high standard. Would definitely use Kevin again for any other job and/or recommend him to anyone else.

Cloakroom refit Bathroom Fitting
Kevin has been fantastic, and has left the work area clean and tidy at the end of every day. from design to completion he has kept me involved all the way offering better ideas than I had and the final product is a very usable downstairs cloakroom. from a very cold drab room, he has worked wonders, we now have a very smart and warm area.
he has had to work on his own with my dogs and had his own house key to get in as required, a very trustworthy person.
I only wish I could upload photos to show his work standard. we are very happy with the end result, and would happily hire Kevin again for future jobs.
Many thanks for a job well carried out and completed.

Kevin is and does what it says on the tin. He installed new products in our family bathroom and en-suite and completely tiles both rooms. He sourced all the products and ensured timely delivery. He also arranged the electrician. When we discussed the design of each room he made excellent suggestions and recommendations and easily incorporated our wishes. He completed the works within schedule and is a real grafter. Any problems/issues are quickly resolved. I definitely recommend Kevin as not only does he project manage but works hard too. Thanks for your excellent work.

Bathroom refit including tiling Bathroom Fitting
Based on the many positive reviews of Kevin's work we asked him to quote for a revamp of the fairly basic bathroom fitted in our new build house. We were immediately impressed with Kevin's advice on design and quality aspects of the proposed work and, with the job now finished, we are so glad we went with his suggestions. We now have a high quality stunning bathroom that has exceeded our expectations.
Throughout the work Kevin kept us informed on progress and impressively left no mess or accumulated debris at the end of each day.
The end result is something that has really added value to our house and we would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin and Templar Bathrooms.
Thanks Kevin for a great job well done.

Bathroom refit & refurb Bathroom Fitting
From concept to reveal our experience of working with Kev at Templar has been nothing less than positive. In design, he brought his own ideas to the table, whilst also listening to our opinions, he was honest and forthright about what would, and would not work, but was never over bearing. Throughout the build Kev kept us informed of every detail with an evening update. The final result was a bathroom that exceeded our expectations due to his high level of workmanship and attention to detail. And unlike many, he was always tidy and would not hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Kev

Kevin has done an excellent job of redesigning and fitting both our en suite and main bathroom. The En Suite proved more challenging than first thought but Kevin spent an extra two days overcoming the problems encountered and a lot of extra hard work!

Kevin responded quickly to the posting and came out and repaired the faulty shower. He gave suggestions for a refit and creation of an en suite cloakroom and a high level verbal estimate of the cost. He offered to provide a detailed quote with drawings if/when we decide to go ahead with the work.

Kevin has done a fantastic job of all 3 bathrooms! They are above and beyond anything we expected. His experience meant he offered much needed advice in the design process, allowing us to achieve maximum results in the available spaces! We now have bathrooms that we didn't dream we could own.
Kevin and his assistant Daniel have worked hard to complete the project ahead of schedule. They have always been clean and tidy and have left the job spotless!
I have nothing but praise for templer bathrooms - so much so we have ready discussed our next job for Kevin!
We will genuinely miss you being around Kev, but look forward to seeing you in the future!!

Kevin has just finished our bathroom and has done a great job. His ideas for what is a very small room were spot on. We have what appears to be a bathroom from a very posh hotel for a very fair price. We had to wait a few weeks for Kevin to start as he is in demand.He kept in touch,started on the date we agreed,finished within his estimated time scale and kept the place clean and tidy during the work. Its been a pleasure having such a component professional carry out a lovely job. Can't recommend Kevin highly enough.

Kevin visited quickly and located the shower leak. He explained a number of options for us to consider with a rough cost guide for each. In the end we decided on a temporary fix which Kevin carried out promptly. We aim to contact Kevin later in the year for re-fit of the shower cubicle......if he can fit us in! Definitely recommend him. Very thorough.

Bathroom and toilet room refit Bathroom Fitting
We hired Kevin based on the positive reviews on here, and we weren't disappointed.
We started with a few rough ideas for our bathroom and Kevin's knowledge and experience was invaluable in moulding these thoughts into a design that's attractive, practical, space-efficient and cost-effective.
We particularly liked the fact that he wasn't afraid to point out our bad ideas, explain from his own experience why some of the things we were suggesting wouldn't be wise and suggest better alternatives that achieve the same goal. Kevin knows the difference between what will work well in the long term and what will look nice at first but be regretted six months later.
In the bathroom, Kevin installed a bath with shower overhead, and a sink and toilet in built-in units. Into the separate toilet room went a new toilet and a small corner sink. In two and a half weeks, both rooms were completed to a very high standard and the house was left clean and tidy each day. Kevin was in touch by phone each day to update us on the progress and his plans for coming days.
We’re a little sad that we weren't around more when Kevin was in the house. As well as being a top quality craftsman, he's a great guy to spend time with - very entertaining and easy to get on with, and infinitely patient with my incessant questions about the smallest of details!
We're very grateful to Kevin for a fantastic job from beginning to end, and would have no hesitation recommending him.

We posted a job on this site, Kevin quickly got in touch and following a positive telephone conversation we arranged for him to view the job, subsequently we were very impressed with his ideas and had no hesitation in hiring him.
The job Kevin did for us was absolutely fantastic. He was prompt, tidy, his workmanship is of the highest standard, and he kept us up to date every day.
Overall we could not be happier with the final result and Kevin turned a tiny room in to what feels like a far more spacious and modern en suite. Could not recommend highly enough.

En suite Bathroom Fitting
We needed our ensuite completely renovating and after checking out Kevin's feedback, we asked him to give us a quote. I knew exactly what I wanted but before I could say anything Kevin came out with exactly what I wanted. On receiving our quote we were more than happy, especially as Kevin was able to provide a better quality of bathroom fittings and furniture than we were looking at but for pretty much the same price. He agreed a start and completion date, and also kept in touch before the job began. Once he started he kept everything clean and tidy, checking with us at each stage to make sure we were happy. The electrician he uses came and did the electrical work for us (even doing some other work outside the ensuite whilst he was there) and was quick, efficient and very friendly also issuing the electrical certificate for us. The job was completed a day ahead of schedule and to be honest looks even better than I could possibly of hoped for. I would highly recommend Kevin o any perspective clients and will use him again when I've saved up enough to get my main bathroom done. Many thanks,Kevin.

Bathroom refurbishment Bathroom Fitting
Our old bathroom was in need for a total refurbishment and we took Kevin on based on feedback as well as our own intuition. We were looking for a contemporary design and whilst we had our own ideas, Kevin also had some good recommendations and looking back we are glad we listened to his suggestions. The new bathroom has worked out really well and we are very happy with the results. Kevin had to remove and take the old bathroom out, start all over again and basically start from scratch. Kevin touched base regularly with us with regards to the progress and worked very tidy which makes all the difference if one gets home in the evening. Kevin designed the way that the bath features within the bathroom and also helped us out in organising all the materials and his advice made quite some difference in a very positive way. He took the job on and finished within the time he said and also for the price we agreed. The new bathroom has now been up and running for about 10 days and it looks really good. Kevin, as you will no doubt read this, we do owe you an apple pie as promised....so you do have to come back to do the downstairs loo and we will get that organised!

New bathroom suite inc. Tiling / Decorating. Bathroom Fitting
Following the reviews on here, we hired Kevin for our bathroom refit. The reviews were important, as 6 yrs ago we had many tradesmen in our home to build an extension. In the main they were great, but we had problems with one, so it was important to get someone trusted, which we found in Kevin.
After we invited Kevin to quote, he answered quickly and visited us the same weekend. Our bathroom was pokey, but with Kevin's vision and experience, it has been completely transformed. Kevin advised on products of higher quality than B&Q but comparable cost. I am so glad we listened, as were delighted with the result.
We were given a detailed quote, which allowed us to budget confidently. When the work was complete, we paid exactly what we had been originally quoted.
It was reassuring to have Kevin managing all aspects of the work. We literally handed the job over to him and he organised everything from removal of the old suite to bringing in an electrician to fit the new lights and fan.
Each day we knew when to expect Kevin, and we were kept informed every step of the way.
I'm over the moon with my new bathroom, and the care and attention given by Kevin along the way. I'd highly recommend Kevin to anyone in the market for a new bathroom.
Thanks very much - very happy customers!

Fit new bathroom Bathroom Fitting
This was to be a dream bathroom.At £2,500 for Kevin's time and material with contractors (electrician and plasterer) extra it should have been.
Firstly,you need to ensure that you get a full written quote and schedule of works.What we were told and what we got were two different things.
(We have shortened this as only 1,500 characters can be used. A full transcript has gone to the site.)
Leak from shower (3 visits)
Lights (buck passed around)Who's responsible for repairing holes in the plaster and ensuring the spotlights fit.Still waiting for repairs.
Finishing touches done by ourselves- grouting and filling the gap around the extractor fan.
Fan was to be an over the shower one but on Kevins instructions was replaced with a wall fan in the existing site.
Decorators cork used for Kevins accident with newly plastered wall.A revisit with the right equipment was needed.
Several other issues which have been discussed with Kevin and would take too much space on here.
All kevin does is hold his hands up to it or blame the other contractor.
On one revisit Kevin hugs my wife and says I am sorry, I would give you some money back but I spent it.
Says it all.

Right first fan. My elec went discussed lights fan etc, spoke to him he said HE WAS TOLD FAN IN WALL not above shower why did they not say so while work was being done not weeks later Lights elec put lights in left hanging through holes in bags for plaster, was plastered but he wanted to paint ceiling before lights went in place said he would do it it after made a mess of it. Yes while fitting skirting plaster cracked along edge of bead sorted, things like this can happen. Problem customer supplied all used products for job wc could not be taken out as was rotted together would have had to smash it. Some people you just can't please bent over backwards lots I need to say but not enough space daft
Instalation of new shower and tiling of walls & floor Bathroom Fitting
After posting our job on the site Kevin was quick to respond and offer a consultation. He came to our house when it was convenient for us (as both work full time) and gave us a quote. As we had no experience in renovating rooms, He offered us valuable advice on how to make the most of a small room. From that initial consultation we decided that we would hire him to replace our bathroom.
Kevin was prompt, arrived when he stated he would and also kept us informed of what he had planned for that day. He is very tidy and respectful of his surrounding, dust sheets were laid up the stairs, right up to the bathroom, and no mess was left at the end of the day, When the old bathroom was removed, it was taken away the same day along with all rubbish.
As he was working on the bathroom if he came across any problems , before he did anything he consulted with us first and advised us of the best solutions. This did not affect the price quoted in the initial meeting.
Kevin is a great guy, he works to a very high standard and who clearly takes pride in what he does. We are extremely pleased with our new bathroom.
I would recommend Templer Bathrooms to anyone and will be keeping his number for the next time we need work doing in the house.
Thank you Kev, everything was much appreciated.
P.S He really, really likes peach melba's... just a heads up :0)

bathroom and en suite refit Bathroom Fitting
We chose to get a quote from Templer Bathrooms after reading all the positive feedback on MyBuilder. Kevin gave us lots of design ideas for our bathroom and en-suite re-fit. We knew straight away we wanted to use Kevin as the other plumbers who had given us quotes lacked the ideas, experience and enthusiasm that Kevin has.
On our second meeting to discuss the design etc, Kevin was happy to spend time with us to ensure we chose the right materials and also put forward his ideas to help us as much as he could with the planning process.
The work took approx three weeks to complete and during this time, Kevin made sure there was as little disruption as possible to our lives, due to us having a young family. Kevin is a very tidy and neat worker, he cleared up every day ensuring no mess was left in the house. We received a phone call every evening from Kevin to check we were happy with how the job was going. Kevin was very helpful and approachable and happy to help us if we did have any queries.
We are very happy with our new bathroom and en-suite, it has made our house feel more like a home. They both look very modern and tasteful and just what we wanted. Looking back, the whole process was very staright forward and we are more than happy with the end result.
We would not hesitate in using Kevin's services again and would defnatley recommend him, he is a very skilled tradesman who ensures he does an excellent job!
Many thanks Kevin.

Ensuite to be fitted in attic bedroom Bathroom Fitting
Well what can we say! Found Kevin through previous recommendations on mybuilder and we weren't disappointed. Been thinking about building an ensuite in our attic for over for 2 years, but just hadn't found anyone we had confidence in. That changed when we met Kevin, our house, grade 2 listed and over four floors, it wasn't going to be a straight forward, stress free job. Our main concerns were not compromising the size of the bedroom, incorporating an already installed skylight and avoid a macerator if at all possible. With his design he found solutions to all, firstly he built a false wall to avoid wasting space under the eaves, incorporating the sky light, creating a useful shelf space, a large cupboard for the small room next door whilst still maximising the size of the ensuite without compromising the size of the bedroom, a genius idea. He also managed to get in the soil and waste pipes with very little disruption to the original building both internally and externally, avoiding the need for the noisy (and unwanted) macerator. We have ended up with an ensuite that we couldn't be happier with and looks like it has always been there. The wet walls in the shower look fantastic and we even managed to fit a full size sink. Kevin spent hours with us before he even got the job putting our minds at rest over the design. Kevin communicated at every stage and would always call when we were unable to to catch up at the end of the day to let us know how the day went and his plans for the following day (invaluable and uncommon in most trades). When the original design could be changed for the better he would make suggestions that would cost him time, but gave us the best possible outcome. Kevin also recommended a plasterer and electrician with whom we were not disappointed. Just wish we had found him before we had done the other shower room and bathroom, the ensuite puts them to shame! We would not hesitate to highly recommend. Thank you Kevin.

Tile utility floor install downstairs shower room Bathroom Fitting
This job was never straightforward. It was to incorporate a bathroom from another house. The properties are over 100 years old so lots of unknowns. Kevins quote was comparable to the other quotes but decided to hire Kevin from his work history, the feedback, and he came across as a guy that I could work with i.e gut feel. We agreed the scope of the quote and it was made visible what was included and not.Kevin is very clear on his limitations and will not take on his any trade where his skills would be deficient. For example bricklaying. I valued this as it meant that i knew i was going to get a great finish. He worked with me on the initial design, even when i changed my mind a couple of times, always wanting an end product that i would love. As predicted along the way there were a few hidden nasties but again Kev was really flexible in arranging his jobs so that i could deal with these. I work full time so i basically handed the keys to Kev and left him to it. He rang me every night to make sure I was completely happy with the work and told me the plans for the following work which i really appreciated. I am extremely pleased with the end result, it looks great and the standard of work is fantastic . I hired Kev for the utility refit too .A great guy to work with, whose se standard of work is exemplary, takes pride in his work and ensures that the customer is 100% satisfied. THANK YOU KEV !!

Remove old bathroom suite install shower and tile Bathroom Fitting
I have no hesitation in recommending Kevin to all, a truly a gifted craftsman who discussed all aspects of our work in great detail before and during the project, there were no surprises. I would go as far to say it was a pleasure having him in our home.
Prior to posting the job on mybuilder we had designed and found our perfect bathroom, or so we thought. Kevin’s years of expertise as a skilled tradesman came to the fore and he advised us both on design and product and the result was a much better bathroom that we ever could have imagined and enhanced units and more for our money.
On his first visit Kevin showed us his plans and we were astonished at extras we could now afford and the space he could provide and all in an inexpensive way. His advice and guidance was provided at each stage of the build and with a courteous approach giving us the time to discuss and consider his mythology.
The project went ahead without delay and we were impressed with the way in which he discussed all aspects regardless of what they were small or big in order to ensure we were happy.
Electrical aspects of the project were outsourced to a third party who were absolutely outstanding in their approach to the work in hand and so polite.
We have been so overjoyed with Kevin's work that we have no hesitation in recommending Kevin to anyone.
All in all a great job…thanks Kevin

Bathroom Bathroom Fitting
I would highly recommend Kevin to family and friends. It has been a true pleasure to have him in our home. He started as a tradesman and left as a friend. Over the years we have dealt with many in the building trade and straight away we could tell that Kevin was a highly skilled craftsman and very experienced in his trade.
We had planned our bathroom as we thought with maximum use of space. After measuring up Kevin showed us his plans and we were amazed at the extra floor space and storage that we gained. It was also a more affordable way of doing it. He gave us his feedback of his plans in a very polite manner and gave us time to consider his ideas and to discuss it thoroughly. The installation went very smoothly and he consulted us on the tiniest of details to make sure that we were happy. Kevin also arranged for the electricians to come at a time that was convenient to us. They were excellent and also consulted us in the course of the installation. We were very pleased with the quality of their work.
We have been so thrilled with Kevin's work that we have now discussed plans for another project in the near future.
We would therefore have no hesitations in recommending Kevin to anyone.

full new bathroom refit Bathroom Fitting
I needed a whole new bathroom including a fairly large walk in shower. Kevin came to have a look at the job and after spending a couple of hours with me i decided to hire him... from the onset he was very friendly and very informative, he spent time with me to make sure that the items i needed/wanted were the right ones and that it was within budget, nothing seemed to be a bother to him. Every step of the way he explained to me exactly what he was doing and what was to be done next.I am such a nosey person i would often stand and watch but this never phased Kevin at all ... we would chat but he still kept working it never slowed him down. The bathroom is fantastic even with a BIG walk in shower it still looks spacious, bright and airy. I am more than pleased with the work Kevin has done and would definitely recommend 'Templer_Bathrooms' to others. Thank you Kevin

Shower removal and refit Bathroom Fitting
Kevin recently fitted a new shower for me, due to problems with leakage in the old one. Kevin provided a solutions-based approach to the job. He provided options and explained the benefits of more modern materials and kept me involved/informed throughout the process. He was friendly, punctual, tidy and reliable. Any minor glitches and he knew how to resolve the issue immediately. Despite fitting a larger shower than the previous one, Kevin used his knowledge and experience (and possibly a little bit of magic?!) to make the bathroom appear MUCH more spacious. He listened and understood my requirements from the very beginning, suggested and discussed the right products for the modern look I wanted, and helped me achieve budget compromises without sacrificing quality or style. The difference Kevin's work has made to my bathroom has to be seen to be believed, it is a vast improvement. The place looks lighter, more spacious and far more modern - all from changing the shower and bath panel. It has definitely breathed new life into the place. I honestly don't feel many fitters would be as helpful, or demonstrate the same level of design knowledge - I'm really pleased I chose Kevin, he was well worth the money :-)

Fit 3 new bathrooms Conversions - General
Kevin designed and converted a bedroom into an ensuite and dressing room leading into the Master Bedroom. He made sure that maximum use was made of the space available. He then divided the house bathroom to make one ensuite and a house bathroom. He built the stud walls, fitted doors and door frames in the ensuites ,all the plumbing and tiling of floors and walls. He also replaced the downstairs cloakroom toilet and sink . In all bathrooms he boxed in the bathroom furniture giving a professional finish and shelf space for toiletries. He went out his way to source a raised toilet and low bath to meet the needs of my 83 year old mother. The job then developed and he fitted the kitchen and all white goods built into the units. Again tiling the floor. He laid the laminate flooring throughout the downstairs and in 2 rooms up stairs. A large number of other trades were involved with the total refurbishment of the house. Kevin always made sure that he liaised with them to ensure smooth working during the project. He has also designed and built decking for the back garden. Kevin always works hard and will go out his way to make sure the customer is satisfied with the job. His work is of an excellent standard. I would recommend him for work whether it be a direct replacement of a bathroom or complete redesign.

Looking to redo tired bathroom Bathroom Fitting
Well I'm absolutely thrilled with my new room.
Kevin took out the bath which was never used and replaced it with a lovely large shower cubicle. New loo and wash basin with surround also fitted with tiles to wall and floor. Initial time estimate was two weeks but after 8 working days, here we are finished.
Throughout the time Kevin kept me informed of what was happening and suggested one or two things which have made a huge difference such as resiting the the towel rail to better position. A lovely man, just gave the key to him and left him to get on. Left everything tidy and took old suite away.
I would definitely recommend him if you're looking for a good job done. Many thanks Kevin.

Create an ensuite bathroom Bathroom Fitting
Kevin gave us great advice on how to create our ensuite from scratch. He knows what works and what doesn't and by following his recommendations we couldn't be more pleased.
Kevin was very conscientious, punctual and makes sure you get what you want. During the job, he worked while we were out of at work and you would not know he had been (Very tidy worker!) apart from the progress each day and the regular phone call to check we were happy with how things were going.
This job took nearly two weeks to complete and we are ecstatic with the finished result. It looks fantastic. Just need to save for the main bathroom update and Kevin will be back - can't recommend more than that.

Shower room refurbishment 9x4ft Bathroom Fitting
An absolute Gem of a guy - Kevin has done a fantastic job in refurbishing my rather small shower room - full of good ideas and even after settling on a sink that would fit it, he still took the time to look for the kind of sink unit that I really wanted and he found it! Had to go away for the week so gave him the keys and when I returned I couldn't believe it was the same room - absolutely brilliant. Absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him.
Again many thanks Kevin

Kevin did a fantastic job with our bathroom and turned it into a relaxing place to unwind. Right from the start he took great interest and time to explore all options to create a room which we really wanted and he came round and spent a long time providing advice whay we could do and what would work well. During the job he also ensured he kept the place tidy throughout the job. The finished room is first class and I would most certainly recommend him to anyone so forget the rest as Kev's the best. Thanks very much again Kevin and also not forgetting the Tank.

Kevin carried out a great job on our bathroom, it's now gone from an 80's throwback to the best room in the house. A few problems we're uncovered with bad walls etc but Kevin took it all in his stride and produced a brilliant final finish. My advice to anybody looking at hiring Kevin is to get him on the job before you buy anything for your bathroom as his design advice and product knowledge is fantastic. He's not just a bathroom fitter but has a great eye for design and bringing the best out of a room,even one as small as ours.I can't recomend Kevin highly enough. Thanks Kevin & Tank a job well done

His work is absolutely impeccable and we could not speak more highly of Kev and his colleague. No job was too small and Kev kept us in the loop about every detail. His workmanship is to the highest standard and we absolutely LOVE our new bathroom.
Kev was punctual, extremerly polite and a pleasure to have around our home.

We were very satisfied with Kevin's work. Start was delayed by heavy snow, but Kevin kept us well informed throughout. He completed the job quickly and tidied up after his work.
He helped with ideas for design and we are really pleased with what we have ended up with (which was quite a long way from our original plans). Kevin's suggestions have left us with much more space and a room free from clutter.
Kevin supplied our bathroom suite and fittings. We are pleased that he did - what we have feels really solid quality and a cistern lid which was chipped when it arrived was quickly and efficiently replaced.

I'm very pleased with how the new bathroom has turned out. I gave Kevin a fair amount of freedom in terms of the overall arrangement and I am really glad I did. He has transformed what was a dark and dreary area of the house into a bright an airy room that is a pleasure to visit. He met a number of challenges along the way with his typical friendly professionalism and overcame them, often with innovative solutions that worked well and improved the overall outcome. His design ideas, one of which involved simply moving the bath from one wall to another, were inspired.
He worked tidily and the inevitable disruption was kept to a minimum. He kept me informed all along what he was doing and how the project was going. He turned up when he said he would and worked conscientiously until the job was finished.
