Brexit, What Brexit? Designer Chris Tells Us How Oxford Kitchens Overcome The Challenges They Face
Joining Oxford Kitchens and Bathrooms in May 2017 company Designer Chris is soon to be celebrating his 2nd year within smooth functioning, Abingdon based interior design team.
With over 15 years industry experience behind him, Chris came to Oxford Kitchens from a high street retailer, seeking the challenge of a more prestigious market. Equipped with passion and dignity, Chris transferred his previously learned skills over to his new role and quickly settled in joining Nicky, Julie and Company Director Richard.
With Brexit at the forefront of everyone’s minds, the company are yet to report any stagnancy in their buyers’ market. Though this is hot topic within the showroom, clients and prospective clients still feel assured that their money is safe and whatever the outcome, our partners will be working behind the scenes to minimise disruption.
With this so-called challenge currently not cause for concern, Chris tells us of one challenge that they do face as designers; “Often we need to use our expertise to advise our clients with alternative options to what they may have envisioned. This can be tricky if they had their heart set on a certain feature for example. Many of our clients come to us from listed or part listed properties and this can initially appear to restrict their options. Luckily we have a fantastic range of high-end products and appliances with a top-class team of contractors to help us.”
Company founder and Director Richard adds, “It is our job to give our clients what they want whilst ensuring that we meet the building standards that we would expect within our own homes, and sometimes building structure or budget can get in the way. Being tactical and courteous are largely characterised within this role but ultimately, we must have integrity at all times. Our clients are investing a lot of money and trust in us to help them to create their dream home.”
With new enquiries and confirmed designs proceeding to flow each week, it is clear that word is continuing to reach county wide, even after 40 years in business. Brexit or no Brexit it appears that our population continue to yearn for glamorously depicted, modern spaces.
