The kitchen is the hub of many a home. It is where everyone congregates and where the majority of group activity tends to take place. With this being the case, it makes sense to have your kitchen the exact way you want it. There are limitations to how personal you can get with an ‘off the shelf’ kitchen that all the big-name high street companies provide. The only way to get things exactly the way you want them, is to opt for a bespoke kitchen.
A bespoke kitchen gives you access to an infinite level of choice with which to achieve a kitchen whose aesthetic is original, individual and, essentially, you. At SDP we tend to have a bespoke attitude towards each project we undertake, so of course, when it comes to bespoke kitchens our aim is to work with you to provide you with a bespoke kitchen that represents the pictures of your dream kitchen that you have inside your head.
So, is your kitchen going to be specifically geared towards preparing food, and totally utilitarian? or, are you looking to create an area where there is plenty of room for entertaining guests? Whatever your ideal kitchen is, whatever you have in mind, SDP have the expertise to ensure that the end product is above and beyond your expectations.
Here at SDP we have over 25 years experience in the construction industry. We have worked to build ourselves an excellent reputation that is based upon high standards and impeccable attention to detail, sourcing the best materials and presenting our clients with outstanding value. We see this as a testament to both our standards and our approach – the respect and sensitivity with which we treat our clients and their ambitions.
We work alongside the best kitchen designers and employ a team of kitchen fitters whose expertise and standard of work cannot be beaten. This enables us to take dream kitchens and turn them into a reality. Your kitchen space is a direct reflection of who you are as a person, your passions and your outlook – your kitchen is a reflection of you. At SDP we strive towards creating kitchens that become a strong representation of who you are and what you are about. We make kitchens that our clients are extremely proud to own.
"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"
"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"
"Dear James I just wanted to thank you and your team for a great job carried out on my property. I felt that your quote was fair and that I was kept up to date with proceedings and felt included in decisions to be made during the project. I also felt that your team were timely, polite and clean, taking care to clean up after themselves. I particularly liked the fact that you managed the project bringing in tradesmen when required to ensure minimal wasted time and that you finished on time and in budget. Thankyou for a job well done and I wish you the best for you and your team. Jamie Denholm"
"As new house owners, we had no experience of having work done on property. James and his team made the entire process simple and easy, working with extreme professionalism, to schedule and on budget. Even our requests for custom wardrobes and awkward tiling didn’t phase them! We are overjoyed with the results, and will seek out SDP next time we need work done. Thanks again, and send out regards especially to Gundas! Lizzy and Ian"
"Hi James, Many thanks for these fantastic photos. They do indeed look brilliant. It really does put my amateur efforts in to place but on the other hand they show our home in the most wonderful way. Let us also take this opportunity to thank you and your team. We are absolutely delighted with what you and your guys have done. You have helped us realise our vision for our dream house. From the outset we were confident that you would be able to deliver what we wanted, on schedule and within budget. The format of payments was excellent. We really appreciated your “can do” attitude and the way we were able to add items into the schedule as we realised that we needed to do more to our house to make it into our home. The finished quality of what you have done is wonderful. Your guys have been a pleasure to work with and we thank you for the care that they took working in our home. Also, watching your guys tackling some of the more ‘difficult’ tasks was truly exciting. Working through the development of the project, day by day with you on site, has been a pleasure , your attention and sense of humour have ensured that it has been a really great build. We have really enjoyed our time with you and your guys and want to thank you all so much for building our dream. We are so pleased and delighted that everyone who walks in goes WOW! Best regards, Jim & Adrienne"
"Our long awaited extension is so impressive and looks amazing. Everyone who comes to the house and sees it, always gives the same reaction – Wow! James and his team were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. At one point we wanted to amend a section of the build, James worked with us to make sure we got the result we wanted and the finished result was definitely worth it. The extended area has given us much more space and light and creates a wonderful relaxing environment which is perfect for a family with teenagers. We would highly recommend James for any building project , his approach is professional and he looks after his customers well, we will always return to his company for anything we may need in the future."
"James did a great job project-managing the refurbishment to our apartment, especially considering I was based out of London and unable to regularly check on progress in-person. His past experience was evident in all the design tips he shared (and implemented) to prep the flat for a quick sale. Finally, and most importantly, the realistic timelines which were very much appreciated in order to keep the project on track. Thanks, James!"
We love our new kitchen extension. It is exactly what we wanted. SDP listened to exactly what we were after and did a fantastic job. Everyone who worked on it was very friendly and polite and worked to high standards. I would definitely recommend them.
"We contacted SDP to do a house inspection for us prior to buying our first house. James was very helpful in taking us through the potential works identified in our Home Buyers report and associated costs and risks. Once the house purchase was complete we took up SDP’s offer to undertake some works to the timber in our cellar. The work was completed in a professional manner and to a high standard and SDP could not be beaten on price by the other companies that we considered. Overall we were very pleased and will definitely consider SDP for future works. Kind Regards, Andy & Liz."
James and his team have just recently completed renovation work on our new home. The house was extremely dated, so required a new kitchen, new bathroom, as well as a lot of other work (knocking down a wall, moving an existing wall, changing a cupboard to a doorway, new boiler, changing a door to a window, installing French doors, removing a porch, new front door). From start to finish, the installation was seamless and completely stress free. On top of this, the work was completed on time! James organised all of the work to be completed by day, and managed the entire project. James put us in contact with Steve, the kitchen designer who listened to every aspect of our needs, and created a bespoke kitchen. Cannot rate this team highly enough - they are trustworthy, reliable, completes the work to the highest standard, and is constantly on standby to answer any questions. The house was always left clean and tidy. Overall, we are so impressed with the quality of the work, we will undoubtedly be having SPD back to complete further work on the house. Thanks so much!
"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 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 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 hearing good things, I contracted James and his team to do some considerable refurbishment work on one of my student terrace houses. The property needed a full loft conversion, a refurb of the main bathroom, bedroom, and dining room, and a totally new kitchen. Not only that – but with it being a student property we only had the small window of the summer holidays to get everything looking tip top again in time for the new academic year. It was a tall order but the job was completed to highest standard and with complete efficiency from the whole team at SDP. I couldn’t be happier with the work. Everything was completed on schedule, and with total transparency from James about where we were at, at every stage. Because of the terms and conditions drawn up in advance, I knew the exact schedule of works. Payment was spread across the duration of the project and there were no hidden costs. SDP also sourced the kitchen themselves, using my specifications – which was a massive weight off my shoulders. The team were always punctual and polite. All in all, I couldn’t recommend them highly enough."
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.
"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."
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.
"I would like to say that I only have praise for the team that completed my insulation work in my roof/attic. All work was completed within the specified time and on budget with a friendly manner, James was on site to check all work was on schedule every day. Cleaned up after themselves everyday & was polite punctual. I would recommend them to anyone."
"The small bedroom in our house required a complete refurbishment, including re-plastering, new electrics, re-siting of the boiler and the installation of wardrobe/cupboard space. We approached SDP as, when looking for potential builders, we came across their website, which seemed very professional. James responded promptly and came to meet with us to discuss our requirements. He was receptive to our thinking, listened carefully and offered good advice. We received the estimate within two days of meeting James. James arranged for the various workmen to visit prior to commencing their part of the work, where this was necessary and scope what needed to be done. When the work commenced James project-managed each aspect and visited each day while the work was ongoing. He also responded promptly to any telephone or text messages from us. We are very happy with the end result and the way this was achieved. Any unforeseen difficulties were resolved quickly by James in a professional and reassuring manner. Keith and Hilary"
