Spiral cellars

A real lifestyle choice, no additional ground required, just careful thinking of its location. With the correct design factor and location within your property, the spiral cellar can be a real master piece in your home.

At the design stage; lighting, whether standard or mood can be be incorporated, with clever thinking electric functions can be incorporated withn an av installation.

A watertight, pre-cast cylindrical system that's sunk into the ground. You don't need an existing basement or cellar - we create it for you! It can keep up to 1,900 bottles in perfect storage conditions and since, like a traditional cellar, it relies on the surrounding earth for its insulation, plus an ingenious air-flow system, it requires no power to maintain its constant temperature.

Naturally, these elements require building regulations and approval, but with the right consultation we can bring your ideas to life and make this a reality.

Stone Flooring

Natural stone brings a timeless beauty and great sense of permanence to any interior.

It's fire and water resistant and can be fully restored after flooding. No two slabs or tiles are alike, which gives stone flooring an inherent vitality. If you are replacing a floor as part of your project it's the perfect time to consider installation of under floor heating which has become an affordable luxury in recent years. New systems consist of very thin mats, placed directly beneath the flooring material, which means the heating is very responsive. Stone is a good conductor of heat because it has a high thermal mass, it absorbs heat slowly and releases it gradually, avoiding temperature swings.

We can supply a diverse range of over 100 different stone tiles and flooring. The range includes Limestone, Travertine, Slate, Marble, Granite, Basalt, Terracotta, Mosaics, Sandstone and now, Porcelain as well as a diverse range of Stone Bathware in a variety of materials.

We pride ourselves on taking a personal approach with every customer's individual requirements. Stone consultants are always at hand to help achieve the desired look, by talking through colours and textures. Practical considerations are also covered, with sound technical advice given on issues such as creating fashionable wet rooms over underfloor heating, to using correct sealants on your stone.

The correct stone choice will enhance your new area, provide that feeling of space and continuity, the layout of the stone is an important factor too, as to where your eye is drawn. Carefully considered at the design process to dovetail with the lifestyle choices this is the finishing touch to your journey.

Careful consideration has to be given when choosing your desired finish, correct consultation will help us bring your ideas to life.

Bathrooms

Bathrooms are one of most important rooms in many people's homes and can be unexpectedly expensive. As well as the functional aspects of bathrooms, with showers, bathroom suites, baths and other bathroom accessories, bathrooms are often viewed as places of relaxation after a long day at work. Choosing the right bathroom can be difficult with such a huge range out there to choose from, which is why Design Appeal is there to help you decide on the perfect bathroom accessories, fixture and fittings in order to create your perfect bathroom.

When choosing from the incredible ranges of bathroom suites available, there are several decisions which you need to make in order to make the best choice of bathroom suites for your requirements.

When it comes to design, bathroom suites come in all sorts of styles, shapes and sizes. Whilst this means that you will always find a bathroom suite to match your home's style and décor, it also means that you need to decide on which line of bathroom suites to choose from. But its not just about the bathroom, because we build to the design and not design to the build, sometimes with a little thought a complete new layout can be achieved, incorporating walk in dressers, his and her sinks with mood lighting and wet rooms.

Orangeries

A unique lifestyle choice;whether used as a room for enjoying meals, entertaining or simply relaxing in, an orangery is incredibly versatile and really does bring the feeling of house and garden into one.

The uses of a semi-glazed room are endless, they can be used as a separate room or form part of a unit including kitchens, games/tv rooms, dining rooms and offices Orangeries create a far more substantial room than a fully glazed conservatory. It far out performs a traditional conservatory with a combination of traditional build, careful engineering and consideration of heat loss, an orangery provides for a comfortable environment.

An ideal use is as a family room, encouraging the modern informal style of family living especially if in close proximity to the kitchen. Alternatively it becomes a glamorous place to entertain, providing a spacious and bright area giving lift, for guests to enjoy the views into the garden, or open up the whole room with bi-folding doors.

A small extension, as an orangery with roof lantern, can give you that large room you've been looking for, by removing the original outside wall to extend a space. So often in the case of smaller kitchen areas, what was once dull and unattractive becomes a light and spacious room.

Ultimately versatile, an Orangery is a prestigious addition to any property, a proper consultation will help us bring your ideas to life.

Balconies & Porticos

We design, manufacture and supply high quality cast stone products for a very wide range of property types ornamental and restoration applications. Cast Stone, or caststone as it is also sometimes spelt, is an excellent alternative to quarried stone for architectural features and has a number of advantages over it such as price, consistent quality and consistent colour. Cast Stone for housing is very popular, both for new builds and restoration projects.

As well as new-build, cast stone is regularly used on sensitive conservation and refurbishment projects where natural stone is a predominant material. Its use includes the replacement or repair of natural stonework damaged by exposure or neglect.

Cast stone stands alongside natural stone as a building material in appearance and performance, yet it's readily available and can cost up to a third of the price. In many ways, cast stone is far better. It can beat natural stone on strength, moisture penetration, colour and textural consistency. Stratification is never a problem and it's free from imperfections. Cast stone can weather like natural stone and it looks much the same.

For designers concerned with truth to materials, there's another thing that today distinguishes cast stone. Often its colour is the result of choosing an aggregate with the appropriate inherent colour. So the final product can mirror the way natural stones are coloured.

With a dedicated design team, the use of cast stone is a fabulous addition to your enhanced lifestyle, offering, porticos, bespoke porches, balconies, detailed railings, bull-eye detailing around windows, cast copings and cornices, all making you journey more exciting and different to everyone else. All these elements can be incorporated during the design stage, let us help you bring your ideas to life.
