Paul and Nick Crouch – home improvement experts and co-owners of family business NPC Installations Limited in Clevedon – share their tips on how you can refresh your home whatever your budget. 

Q: How can I modernise my old kitchen? 

A: If you have a limited budget, changing certain elements, but keeping the skeleton of your kitchen, would be the best solution. 

Replacing doors, plinths, fascias, cabinet handles or worktops alone could make an astonishing difference to the overall look of your kitchen, and leave you with a space you’ll enjoy spending time in. Re-tiling your kitchen is also a great way to create a fresh, up-to-date look. Although this is not always a quick fix, it is very effective if you want to breathe new life into your space.

Alternatively, if your budget allows, you may wish to completely redo the room to create your dream kitchen.

Q: What are the benefits of outdoor kitchens?  

A: Despite popular belief, outdoor kitchens are achievable for all budgets. They’re fast becoming a top trend and can create the perfect outdoor living space for all seasons.

An outdoor kitchen can come in many forms and can blend seamlessly with the style of your garden landscape to create a personal retreat. It can be framed and covered overhead with the roof made in almost any way you like, or feature a bar and seating area, making it the ideal space for enjoying time with family and friends – the possibilities are endless. 

We can build outdoor kitchens in beautiful natural materials like slate, granite and stone – the units can be built in pretty much any durable material you want. We can make bespoke pizza ovens, or a state-of-the-art BBQ (to satisfy the enthusiastic grillers among you!), or we can install other appliances of your choosing like fridges and ovens. 

Q: How can I improve my bathroom?  

A: Most old bathroom sanitaryware is incredibly good quality and may be worth keeping hold of. It is possible to modernise what you’ve already got and make it into something wonderfully unique with a few small touches.
