It’s tougher than ever for homeowners to move up the property ladder, which has prompted most people to adopt an ‘improve not move’ mindset, focusing instead on home improvement. Channel 4 series ‘Double Your House For Half The Price’, hosted by Sarah Beeny, takes this one stage further, showing viewers how to make the most of property they already own, by extending every which way and maximising their living space.
Granite Transformations is at the forefront of the ‘improve not move’ trend, typically transforming customers’ properties in just a day or so. Thus we welcomed an opportunity to become involved in an expansive rebuild project for Double Your House…, supplying our best-selling Black Star worktop material and Brillante ‘mosaics on a mattress’ splashbacks for a major kitchen extension in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
House owner Mark Ricketts originally wrote to us asking for help with their new breakfast bar and kitchen units, at the suggestion of Sarah Beeny. He and wife Francesca were looking for something ‘black with sparkles’, which more or less described Black Star, a deep black recycled glass finish with fragments of mirror fleck.
