Kitchen remodelling

House in Weybridge

Construction Bear undertook the renovation and interior decoration of this lovely two storey house in West London. The bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the upper floor with a large living room, the kitchen and another bathroom situated on the ground floor.

We were responsible for:

Electrical work
Ventilation system installation
Construction of walls and partitions
Flooring / floor screed
Wall strengthening, alignment and plastering
Plasterboard structures
Installation of lighting fixtures, sockets, electrical panels
Plumbing and piping (installation of toilets, shower and bath, water heaters, installation of mixers, filters, water meters, boiler installation, washing machine and dishwasher installation)
Kitchen installation

Our team carried out the initial design and planning of the project including the engineering plan, the floor plan, cost calculations and project management.

The client chose a contemporary style with wood as a key material. They had a taste for straight lines and geometric shapes, preferring straight walls, columns and suspended ceilings. All rooms were decorated consistently throughout.

We created an open plan living space on the ground floor, with zoning effected by columns and drywall partitions. Starting with the kitchen, we installed the latest modern appliances, integrating them into the kitchen’s layout to allow plenty of surface for cooking. We chose beige and pastels for the colour scheme to increase the sense of space. The kitchen flows smoothly into the large dining / living room, which we decorated in the same contemporary, sophisticated style. The white ceiling visually expands the space, whilst scattered ceiling lights and a large chandelier over the dining table create a soft, warm light to emphasise the elegance and purity of the dining area, which has been decorated in beige tones.

Large windows and decorated shutters let nature into the living room area. In keeping with the simple, natural feel, we dressed laminate with a rug for the flooring. The soft leather furniture reflects the theme of the room – simplicity, comfort and understatement.

Property redevelopment in Waddon

House remodelling in Waddon

Construction Bear undertook this complete house refurbishment with two storey rear extension and landscaping to create a beautiful new family home with all the modern conveniences fit for 21st century living.

The original 1920s building was in a bad state of repair, yet the property and its location had good potential for remodelling. Our design team decided to extend the structure to allow for a reception area, generous family room with a contemporary open-plan kitchen and an extra bedroom upstairs.




These structural works proved quite complex and took considerable technical skill on the part of the Construction Bear team to execute. The extension required structural reinforcement in the form of a 7m long steel beam placed on the first floor load bearing wall. To position the beam, our team had to demolish the rear wall of the ground floor, support the first floor with acrow props, then slide the steel beam through an opening in the side wall, guiding it precisely through the acrows to its exact placement on the load bearing wall. We then further reinforced the extension structure by building an additional three support columns.

To create the ultimate in comfort for family living, our kitchen specialists fitted a brand new modern kitchen, fully equipped with double oven, microwave, American style fridge freezer, wine chiller and four point induction hob with hood. For a beautiful, contemporary finish, our designers chose a stylish work top hand-cut from natural granite, along with a peninsula bar table for easy entertaining.

Our team remodelled the bathroom and installed a shower room (walk-in wet room), both with underfloor heating, brand new contemporary-style fixtures and fully tiled from floor to ceiling.

For the landscape design, we created a perfect entertainment/relaxation space in the rear garden with a large decking area that flows naturally out of the family room. In the front we regenerated the lawn and laid a block paving pathway and driveway, which provides off-street secure parking for four vehicles.

Construction Bear undertook all necessary works and finishing to remodel the house to the highest standard, including:

  • All electrical works
  • Carpentry work (including doors, stairways, skirting, shelves/cupboards)
  • Installing a complete new roof
  • Rendering
  • Flooring and adjoining
  • Boiler installation
  • Security installation

  • Insulation
  • Interior plastering
  • Perimeter fencing
  • Interior/exterior lighting
  • Interior decoration
  • Drainage
  • Window and door installation
  • Loft storage space
  • Achieving 75 EPC points for energy efficiency

The result is a superb 3/4 bedroom semi-detached family home that is setting the tone for other developments in this exciting up-and-coming area.
