If your home is your castle, the bathroom is an oasis of calm. A place to unwind and reflect: the bathroom is that part of the home where you go to have a little me-time.

A bespoke bathroom allows you to create an aesthetic that is uniquely your own. At SDP we treat every project: we strive to create a bathroom that is exactly as you imagine it.
So, will a spacious walk-in shower catch your eye, powerful enough to leave you refreshed and rejuvenated, with a softer flow too for those lazier days? Do you dream of a deep, luxurious, standalone bath? If there’s room, why not do both?

We heard about James and SDP through a recommendation, so arranged what was a very friendly and informative meeting. We received a quote from him that was good value and comparable to other quotes received. We chose James because the finishes on the pictures on his website certainly looked impressive, and for the personal touch that was already apparent. This was also true of Steve, who designed the kitchen, and who was equally friendly and full of ideas. Nothing was too much trouble throughout the project, which was completed quickly and in a highly efficient way. We were in very regular contact with James, who was incredibly accommodating of anything we asked, and offered plenty of good suggestions, always looking to minimise costs as well as deliver a quality product. An example of this was a suggestion to alter the original design to incorporate a goalpost steel and remove a large pillar – something we didn’t think was feasible. He did this despite additional pressures on his team’s schedule, and kept costs down as much as possible. The end result was phenomenal - and hugely appreciated - transforming the space into a stunning kitchen diner that has wowed everyone who has visited since. Throughout the project, we were kept completely informed of timescales and what was happening next, and this was all done with a great degree of humour – the relationship developed between us and his team into a really close one. All of the numerous guys who worked on our extension were friendly, polite, clean and highly skilled. The end result has transformed our lives. It’s the first extension we’ve had done, and we were full of trepidation, but the whole experience was far less stressful than we imagined it would be; a major factor in this was that way that everything was managed via James as our main point of contact (although the various workmen were equally accommodating whenever we asked anything of them). All in all, I would highly recommend James and SDP. It’ll be the bathrooms next! Cheers bud Matt
"I selected SDP to undertake a redevelopment and extension of the rear of the ground floor of my 100 year old semi because James approached the project in a very professional manner, explaining that he supplied a price, not an estimate, he gave a timescale and guaranteed daily visits to my house to project manage the work. There were inevitable little hiccups but nothing that James and I could not discuss and sort out. It was most helpful that James was always on hand so that queries could swiftly be dealt with. Together we could talk through tweaks to the plans. James employs a team of very polite, considerate and caring workers who always treated the house as my home, not as a ‘building site’. As well as this team James also hires in skilled artisans which has resulted in a completed open-plan family room/kitchen/dining room along with a loo and utility room that exceeds my original hopes and plans. I can highly recommend James and his team to anyone considering renovation work, large or small."
"We recently used SDP to relocate our bathroom and the other rooms on our first floor. From the initial visit to the end of the build they understood what we wanted and worked with us to achieve it. They removed the existing bathroom and completely relocated it, including all fitting and plumbing, a new wall, doorway, skirting boards, and skimming the walls in the process. They protected the carpets throughout the work and tidied at the end of each day. They had great attention to detail and the tiling in the bathroom looks fantastic. The final invoice was very reasonable and we would definitely recommend them again. Rob and Lucy"
"After looking around various kitchen design webpages and talking to people, the website for SDP caught our attention because of the bespoke design aspects and the quality of the workmanship. At our initial meeting with James, we were able to explain what it was we were seeking and he was able to advise and make suggestions. This collaborative approach was also taken when we met Steve the kitchen designer. From our first meeting to the completion of the project, continued close communication meant the project ran smoothly and we were aware of what was happening at each stage. James was an excellent project manager, liaising with various trades, electricians, plumbers, plasterers, kitchen fitters, flooring, to ensure the work was done to the agreed timescale and to a high standard and finish. The final result is exactly what we wanted with a few additional ideas from the design team. All of our friends who have visited echo our appreciation of the quality design and workmanship of our new kitchen which we are delighted with. We would highly recommend the work of SDP."
"Thank you very much to Sheffield development properties. Recently we had our brickwork cleaned and re-pointed and I could not be happier. I had tried with many attempts to clean the brickwork around my front door and was having no success so I rang James at SDP to come and give me a quote for the pointing, while he was there he recommended having the brickwork sandblasted and what a great idea it was, the price was very good and the results are fantastic. Couldn’t be more happier with the finished result. Thanks very much James , I will not hesitate to call you in the future. Kind Regards, Callum and Cat."
"The company has recently fitted me a new kitchen, the quality of service and workmanship has far exceeded my expectations, I had prepared myself for a chaotic 11 days !! In fact the whole job was a stress free experience, workmen came and went, only bothering me if really important . They kept mess to an absolute minimum, clearing up at the end of each day, they were also polite and courteous .All in all I can t recommend sheffield development properties highly enough. Good job lads! Kind Regards, Susie Coish"
"We first met James when we went to view a house he refurbished on Cobnar Road, Woodseats. We liked him and were so impressed with the work his team had done that we didn’t need to think twice about who to call when we wanted an extension on the back of our house. James was on hand with help and advice from the very beginning right through to completion of the project. He introduced us to Ahmed, his architect (Nada Architects), who drew up some great plans for us and dealt with the planning permission. Once the building work began, James visited nearly every day to make sure everything was going well. His team of workmen were extremely hard working and polite. They arrived on time and at the end of each day they tidied up before leaving. Their work was of a very high standard, as we knew it would be. It was a pleasure having the whole SDP team around. We are absolutely delighted with our new extension and it has significantly improved the quality of our living space. It is modern and tasteful and integrates well with the rest of the house. It looks attractive from the outside as well as on the inside. We can recommend James and his team, without hesitation, for any building or refurbishment work. They are competitively priced without compromising on quality. It is good to know that we can call on someone we trust when we need more work doing in the future."
"I bought my house a few months ago and needed some work doing. I have never heard about SDP and when I did meet them they gave my a very professional service. James listened to me and was very passionate about the project as just as me. I am delighted with the work that he has done already and look forward for him to work for me in the future. Thanks James. Christine"
"James, We would just like to say thanks to you and your team for completing the alterations on time and to budget . You kept us informed throughout , the work was to a high standard and the various tradesmen turned up when you said they would. We were very appreciative of the fact that your tidied up after themselves and kept the disruption down to a minimum. Once again, many thanks Michael &Sandra Totley , Sheffield"
"When we first thought about having the house extension built, I expected to be fulfilling the role of project manager, organising the trades and resources etc. But when the quote came in from SDP, which included James’ performing that task, it seemed a much more sensible idea to leave it to him given the differences in our relative experiences of the building trade (I had none). James did as he’d promised and turned up almost every day he had workmen here, making sure they were doing what they were expected to and that they had the resources they needed. He also kept us well informed about what to expect next. He’d provided a complete plan and timescale (which was perhaps a bit ambitious) at the start, and as is the case with many builds, things sometimes happened beyond our control that impacted the completion date. But James was always happy, willing and able to work around the delays, revising and rescheduling as required. Throughout the whole build James and his team have always been friendly, honest and polite, and have often contributed ideas and suggestions for making the build better, more professional and more effective. Now the build is finished, we’re delighted, as we have a new kitchen, garage and workshop that get’s a ‘Wow!’ from everyone who sees them. We are happy to recommend SDP and would have no hesitation in using them again."
"We have recently moved house and decided to knock through a couple of walls to make a larger kitchen diner. Initially we contacted about 5 other companies but for one reason or another they were not interested or didn’t turn up. I felt like I was coming to the end of my tether with it all, then I saw one of the Sheffield Development Property Vans; I made a note of the name and sent James a text. He arrived when he said he would, he helped us plan the space and dealt with the building inspector. What a refreshing change! The work started when he said it would ( almost to the minute ) and the guys who turned up worked in a very professional manner, they did not stop, not even for a break! They really did put in a sterling effort! Am I happy with SDP? Yes, I am delighted. Thank you James, Paul, and Guntis! Thanks again James"
"Hair Salon Design Set Up. My Project was to set up a hair salon on the first floor of the striking and iconic ‘Sinclair Building’ in Sheffield City Centre. The Sinclair name itself is synonymous with quality, taste and a name ensconced in the history of Sheffield so the quality and finish of the project had to match the quality of the Sinclair’s store. SDP understood this from the start and James Clarke (Managing Director) project managed it personally from day one. The main reason I chose SDP was that I needed a diverse range of trades, joiners, plumbers, electricians, tilers and floor layers and SDP have highly experienced personal in house, who regularly work on “Blue Chip” projects..so I didn’t have to wait for a contractor to “fit me in” between jobs. The other unique factor for using SDP was that they also fabricate designs from stainless steel which was exactly what I wanted, as I needed shelving, sinks and panelling making to bespoke specifications out of metal. Working with James Clarke was an very enjoyable experience and I enjoyed the project immensely..there were no major problems, the project was finished bang on time and with no overspends! I would rate SDP ten out of ten and will be using them for my next shop and all future work on my house. Duncan Gillespie The Cutting Club"
We had been considering having a kitchen /diner extension for a number of years, hoping to make more efficient use of our home. We first met James two years before our project started, and after consultations with other builders felt that we would like him to do the job. We had James architect Ahmed to draw up the plans for us, he achieved just what we had asked for a room filled with lots of natural light and views onto the garden. The team started on a bank holiday Monday which was a nice surprise to us All of James team from the bricklayers, labourers to electricians were hardworking polite and friendly guys. After spending many weekends looking at kitchens we met Steve Wake the kitchen designer who works with James. He listened to our ideas and eventually came up with a beautiful fitted kitchen for us and managed to design us a corner larder cupboard to optimise our space. We couldn't decide on a colour, luckily Steve gave us right up until the final minute of production to decide. A problem we did have was trying to arrange time to see James as we were both at work and James wasn't available of an evening. However he came to the site each day to see how things were progressing. We now have just what we had dreamed off and everyone who sees it as to how it was before is very impressed. Thank you to James and his team.
"From the start SDP were professional and filled me with confidence about the standard of their work. James was friendly and helpful in getting exactly what needed doing sorted and timely in all his responses throughout the project. The on site workmen were friendly, reliable, helpful and did a fantastic job. I am really happy with the standard of the work and would recommend them to anyone. My house looks exponentially better than it did as a result. Kind Regards, Adam Wood"
"I needed some basement work completed as it was determined that after a surveyor had looked at it, there would need to be a full rebuild of the wall. The guys who came round were friendly, hard working and did an excellent job. They tidied the place up nicely after the work had been completed. Extremely happy with the cost for doing it and would not hesitate to ask for future work to be completed by Sheffield Development Properties."
Highly recommended. Used James and his team for a rebuild of an extension. The team were so professional, on site every day. The coordination of all the trades was seamless and the work was to a very high standard. Great communication, everything cleared away well, the building secured and weekly payments so you only pay for the work completed that week. Would definitely use SDP again.
We decided that as we were getting older a downstairs toilet would be beneficial. This would be built in the rear of our integral garage. With the front of the garage being extended, with new roof, to allow the continued garaging of our car. Getting planning permission took about 7 weeks. I felt that at least 3 quotations would be required. I had listed our requirements as detailed as possible and identified 3 builders, two local and the third, SDP, I found from a web search. Although SDP were not the lowest quote, we both felt that the way James, the Managing Director dealt with us, was impressive. We went to SDP office to discuss and sign the contract. I had thought of a few queries and tweaks which James accommodated without issue. He also advised us of suppliers they used, for us to choose some of the fitments etc. We were advised of a probable start date and probable duration of the work. Although there was some slippage it did not affect us. The basic building work was done by the team of Ian and his mate Richard. James was on site early most mornings, checking progress and ordering the materials as required. I had not really fully anticipated the level of work required, with lots of sand, bricks, aggregate, timber, and two skips etc. The weather was not always good but it never stopped Ian and Richard, although they were very wet on occasions. Cups of tea seemed to work wonders. James was open to my suggestions and queries although he did suggest on one occasion that I had ‘too much time to think’! Anyway most were accommodated where possible. All the tradesmen were also very professional and competent. Tidying up as they went along. Overall we were happy with the work; in particular the way Ian built false doors to the garage extension for security and in our hallway which really kept dust and disturbance to a minimum. He also built replacement shelves to the rear of the garage. Pricewise I was a little concerned, due to my suggestions and tweaks but it came in ‘on quote’ apart from a couple of items which we asked to be changed. James certainly seems to keep his several active projects, small and large, going with very little impact on ours. We would thoroughly recommend DPS and wish James and his team best wishes for the future.
"We found Sheffield Properties Development efficient, effective and value for money. James kept us informed of who was coming and when. He also solved any problems that occurred there and then. We didn’t have to wait long for answers or solutions. His teams did a good job and were reliable, personable and hard working. Our new extension is a delight and it’s almost impossible to tell that it is new brickwork from the front of the bungalow. We are planning to do our kitchen next year and will be using this firm again. Regards Christine"
SDP recently completed our loft conversion, from start to finish they were superb! James and the team were incredibly open minded and friendly, they listened to all of our requirements. They kept us up to date with all progress and any amendments / changes which were required they offered options along with the pro / cons to each choice. Each day we were made aware of what they were doing and progress which had been made. They ensured the site was tidy and clean after each visit, which was important as we had to live in the house during the conversion. The finish was amazing and we would highly recommend them to anyone doing any building work. Absolute pleasure and we will always look to use them in the future.
"Thank you very much for all at SDP Ltd who have recently refitted our kitchen and carried out building works to make our kitchen and dining room open plan. The work was carried out to a really high standard and all of the workmen who attended our house were friendly and professional and left the house tidy once they had finished each day. The work they have carried out is fantastic and we are really glad that we instructed SDP to carry out the works which were all organised for us from start to finish. Thanks James. Lindsay"
