Press Release : 7th September 2020
Hamilton Refurbishments Ltd based in Chenies, Buckinghamshire has launched a brand new buy on-line trading web site for replacement kitchen doors.
Since 2012 Hamilton Refurbishments Ltd which owns The Hamilton Kitchen Company brand has been designing, supplying and fitting new kitchens for a large number of clients on the Buckinghamshire / Hertfordshire borders from their kitchen showroom and design studios. However, they were increasingly being asked by individuals and trade kitchen fitters to just supply individual and suites of replacement kitchen doors.
Jamie Matyus-Flynn and Scott Peterson founders of Hamilton Refurbishments and their on-line brand The Hamilton Kitchen Company discussed the idea with Andy Watts from Chalfont Web Design and hkuk.co.uk was conceived with the purpose of offering thousands of combinations of door styles, colours, finishes and door sizes with a no frills self service web site.
The most popular door styles are available on the site including Shaker, Handle-Less and Modern as well as some more niche kitchen door designs. Each door is made to customer order, so once placed on-line, it is sent straight to the UK manufacturer and the customer receives their bespoke order within a couple of weeks.
Both the trade and end user DIY enthusiasts are catered for with no minimum order levels and discounts for registered trade kitchen carpenters and fitters who purchase on a regular basis. With many years of experience on the tools themselves, Jamie, Scott and the team offer a depth of industry knowledge that is greater than many competitors.
For the end user, there is a sample service where HKUK will send out a selection of colour swatches to check they are ordering the correct colour. An image upload service is also available for the HKUK team to check the door style selection matches with their existing kitchen if they are replacing a few damaged doors or extending an existing kitchen.
Jamie said “the web site is a no-frills service for customers who know what they are doing and looking for competitively priced replacement doors. However, we will be there to give some advice as required such as providing samples and identifying their existing kitchen style”
Scott went on to say “we will still be offering our full kitchen design and fitting service for existing clients, but this does offer our freelance trade kitchen fitters a chance to purchase from a trusted supplier”.
The web site has been built to be as simple to use as possible for first time purchasers with a simple walk through selection process of finish, colours, sizes and hinge holes to suit every variable. The on-line site also allows for bespoke sizes from the standard sizes.
Andy who has been designing web sites for over 20 years said “this has been an interesting project to work on with its appeal to both end users and trade customers, huge complexity of variables yet needing to make the sales process as simple as possible”. The medium to long term plans are just as exciting if the site proves popular with Andy adding “chatting through with Jamie and Scott and what we can do over the coming months and years there is a host of opportunities to explore as well as being driven by customer demands”.
Hamilton Refurbishments Ltd will continue to provide local kitchen customers, property developers and kitchen fitters with existing 3D services from their showroom in Chenies whilst also providing support for the new on-line venture.
