Earle and Ginger were brilliant from the word go. Our project manager was Francesca from the Hale branch, with a little help from Lucy thrown in. The startling difference, compared to other kitchen companies that we looked at , was that this was not just about designing a kitchen, but designing a kitchen for us. Francesca took lots of time to understand how we worked as a family and where we kept things, from mobiles being charged , to household bills, to homework books. She then built all these things into the design. If we weren’t sure about something she happily did some more research and came back with more suggestions, working tirelessly until we were completely happy with the final design. We then moved to the real project. We asked Earle and Ginger’s builders to quote along with two local companies, expecting them to be more expensive. They weren’t, so we went with them and the result (despite my living, cooking and doing homework in our small hallway with two small children ) was a relatively easy build. They even had a system to control the dust! The communication between Francesca and the chief builder was excellent and any difficulties ( which occur in any project -in our case several things which included a hidden ceiling that we weren’t expecting) were ironed out seamlessly. We even threw in the desire for a log burner in the room, midway through the build and this was met with a ‘can do’ attitude from all rather than a ‘can’t do’ despite the extra work involved. The kitchen we now have is perfect- it is high quality, looks fab and has a place for everything, thus staying relatively tidy despite it being a busy family room. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Francesca, Lucy and all at Earle and Ginger includding their hardworking builders.
