Kew Seal Grey

The showroom is always a work in progress, as we continue to bring the latest styles, colours and products on to display. September will see several updates including Kew Seal Grey.

Kew forms part of the popular Simply Burbidge range, with Finsbury and Barnes, which we have on display in Putty and Alabaster. The three doors are now available from stock in four colours, Alabaster, Putty, Soft Grey and the new Seal Grey.

The Simply Burbidge range represents excellent value for money. It is a solid timber, painted door but priced around the same as a foil wrapped door. This is why it has been a popular choice for our customers for the last two years. Seal Grey is a rich, dark green-grey colour which looks stunning with light granites and Silestones.

The new display will form part of a raft of updates including a new bathroom display for the front window, two new kitchen displays and some minor updates.

Call in to the showroom to see them progress, apologies for any noise or mess in advance.

Improve or move? Update to sell? or Make your new house your home!

There are a lot of buzz words and phrases these days, improve or move, update to sell and make your new house your home are just a selection. For most people the kitchen is the heart of the home and the trend for open plan, exciting and inclusive kitchens continues. At Billingham Kitchens we’re here to help with all of them.

Improve or move;

Improving your home can be a daunting task and many people look at selling their house and finding another that fits their needs. This too can be difficult and expensive so sometimes the idea to turn the house you’re in, into the house you’d like it to be. We can show you what your kitchen could look like if you did “take that wall out” and we can also tell you how much it’s all likely to cost. When it comes to the project itself, in most cases we can take care of everything, from taking the wall out and all the preparation work, plastering, electrics, etc. to installing the kitchen. We offer a huge range of kitchens, granite, quartz and Corian worksurfaces and big name appliances at competitive prices, everything you need to make your dream kitchen.

Update to sell;

If you think that your kitchen could be the reason that your house isn’t selling then it’s definitely worth looking at refreshing it. Replacing the doors to your kitchen could be less than a £1,000 and in many cases replacing doors, worktops and a new sink and tap is just £2-3,000 and often the work only takes a couple of days. We can give approximate estimates from your sizes or we can call out to measure it for ourselves and give you an accurate […]

Ian Goodwillie retires

Ian Goodwillie, a renowned businessman, whose name is synonymous with home makeovers and self-voiced radio ads, has retired after 30 years of serving the North.

Ian Goodwillie, who regularly featured in ad campaigns with his son Frazer from 1991 for Court Homemaker, is stepping down leaving his latest venture in safe hands.

Ian sold the family business but came out of retirement three and a half years ago to launch the new kitchens business with Frazer, which they have both worked tirelessly to build.

Frazer said: “Watching my dad being so passionate about the North East and home improvements certainly inspired me and I am proud to be carrying on this family legacy.”

His new business, Billingham Kitchens, specialises in bespoke and project managed installations continuing the one-stop-shop ethos associated with his family name.

These values have seen operations grow significantly and to take the business to the next step a former colleague, Paul Cook, has joined Frazer’s team.

Frazer said: “Paul has nearly 20 years’ experience at two of the biggest names in home improvement in the area and we are very pleased that he has accepted a role with us.

“We might just be a small business in Billingham but with Paul here and his vast design and customer service experience people can see we are taking it seriously.”

Paul added: “Frazer and I have the same ethos when it comes to helping customers achieve their dream home improvement. We believe in offering a personal level of service that is not found enough in the industry and to help customers through the sometimes bewildering range of products to help them choose what’s right for them.”

Each kitchen may require as many as 20 different elements, including suppliers and tradesmen. Frazer and […]

Simply Burbidge

We have just updated one of our displays to show the new Finsbury Putty from the Simply Burbidge range.

The Simply Burbidge range comprises three doors in three colours, Finsbury, Barnes and Kew all available in Alabaster, Putty and Light Grey.

The Simply Burbidge range is all made in the UK and all three doors are in stock in all three colours, so you don’t have to wait the usual 4 weeks for a painted timber door. They also represent a cost saving of 25-30% versus a typical painted timber door and the colours have been carefully selected so that matching cabinet material is available, eliminating the need for expensive painted end panels.

At Billingham Kitchens, we’re all for products made in the UK especially when they make the kitchen more affordable to you and more convenient to us.

To get a quote on a Simply Burbidge kitchen call us on 01642 550909 or call in to the showroom on Mill Lane, Billingham and make an appointment for a home survey.

Burbidge Stowe light grey

Burbidge Stowe Light Grey featuring Aura (Dekton from Cosentino) solid surface worktops.
A beautifully simple, yet effective, shaker style door in a modern and light colour with a stunning and very hard wearing worktop.
This new display is the first in a series of showroom updates which will see some brand new designs and materials to the showroom.

Stowe has a smooth, lacquered paint finish that’s durable and easy to clean. When you see the door for yourself you will  also see that it does not have the same “dirt trap” inherent in most shaker doors. The slightly more modern feel to it also makes it a great partner to edge handles (handles which fit to the edge of the door, rather than drilled into the door) which create a more streamlined, fuss free look.

Available in porcelain and light grey from stock or painted to order in 3-4 weeks it’s a versatile door and more budget friendly than solid wood.

Dekton from Cosentino is unfortunately not so budget friendly, sitting right at the top end of luxury worktops. For more information on Dekton please check out their website, as its much too technical to get into here. To get the same look for less we would suggest one of the new slimline laminate worktops.

Call in to the showroom on Mill Lane,  Billingham to see this display for yourself and follow the progress of our other updates.

Egger kitchen worktops

At Billingham Kitchens we are always seeking to offer the latest in products, designs and finishes and we are happy to now be offering some stunning new Egger kitchen worktops.

Egger are one of the , if not the, leading sheet material manufacturer(s) with a great history of quality and innovation. Almost all of our kitchens are made from their excellent 18mm board often giving us perfect colour matches to the kitchen doors and we are pleased to be able to offer their worktops to complement them.

Their brochure is one of the best I’ve read, offering great advice on materials and colours which work together well or contrast and the quality of the worktops lives up to the brochure. With 4.1 metre lengths at just £150 they also offer great value for money.

Call in to the showroom on Mill Lane, Billingham to take a look at the Brushed Concrete that we have just put on display as well as samples of the full range.

Made to measure kitchen doors

Whether you want a complete new kitchen or just a makeover made to measure kitchen doors offer significant benefits.

Made to measure kitchen doors allow you to really make the best of the space available without relying on set sizes and large fillers and also offer huge possibilities in colour and style combinations.  In the case of door replacements, some companies use or have used various different heights of cabinets or drawer fascias and it is not possible to get them “off the shelf”, by offering made to measure doors we can always get doors to fit.

So far we have offered two ranges of made to measure kitchen doors with our acrylic gloss and matt vinyl ranges, both of which have been extremely popular, but to respond to customer demand we are now launching a new range. The two key features of the new offering; are that they include a made to measure, integrated handle/handleless door design and that there are some beautiful new colours including painted effect vinyls.

So whether you fancy a modern handleless door, in pretty much anything from white to black gloss, a typical shaker kitchen in any of the matt colours or woodgrains or a traditional style in a painted effect vinyl, such as the cashmere and stone grey featured, you can have it and at an excellent price.

Contact us on 01642 550909 and we can take care of everything from there.
