Whenever you’re renovating your kitchen, or installing a new one, you need the reassurance that the kitchen fitters are reliable; and reliability is the overriding objective of JDS.


Whether you are renovating a current kitchen or adding a new kitchen extension, the actual kitchen design is critical. You need to take into account all these aspects:

  • How does your family actually use the kitchen area?
  • What appliances need to be in the kitchen?
  • How do you currently cook your meals?
  • Do you want to listen to music or watch TV in the kitchen?
  • Lighting needs for tasks and mood.
  • Where are the current services, such as power, gas and drainage?

We have designed, installed and renovated all types and sizes of kitchen and have probably overcome any kitchen installation challenge you might have.

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home so it is easy to understand why you want this room to be warm, welcoming and multi-functional. But from the appliances to the backsplash to the lighting fixtures this can become an incredibly expensive job.

Whether you are looking to simply give your kitchen a new look or it is in desperate need of some major updates there are a few key features you will want to focus your budget on with your kitchen design and remodeling in Oxfordshire, UK.

kitchen lighting


While many homeowners will splurge a great deal on the perfect light fixtures and accent lights you might want to consider updating the lighting with new windows. Light fixtures, like pendant lights, are incredibly affordable and easy to install yourself so why not put the money you would spend on the labor cost and materials and focus on new windows?

Adding in windows can let in a great deal of natural sunlight that can actually reduce the number of light fixtures you need to properly light your kitchen and this can end up saving you in the long run on electricity. Consider having awning windows added into your kitchen remodeling design and save the updated light fixtures for a later time.


The sink and the faucet are two separate expenses in the remodel job and many times people will splurge on the perfect faucet and have to settle for a not so ideal sink.

Sinks cost more and are incredibly difficult to replace so this is one area of the kitchen that you will want to put in your budget. What good is picking out an expensive faucet when the sink will need to be replaced before the faucet? Invest in the sink you want and consider


Most often the cabinets bases don’t need to be replaced but many end up have the cabinets completely redone when all they really need is a new door and handle fixtures.

Instead of having your cabinets completely gutted and replaced have the kitchen remodeling company assess the wear and tear on the cabinet bases. Chances are they can simply keep these in place and end up saving you thousands of pounds.

Countertops for kitchens


You want the countertops to be sturdy and be able to last for a good number of years so it is wise to spend a little extra of the right one. Your countertops will get a lot of wear and tear and you want to be sure the one you choose can withstand the beating. When choosing a countertop forgo a full spread backsplash to go with it.

Backsplashes can add up to a great deal of money and are not necessary for the entire length of the wall. Keep the backsplash to a simple four-inch rise and invest the money you would have spent on an elaborate backsplash into the countertop.
