20 Dec Annual Review 2018
From spacious, light-filled Sunrooms, chic bathrooms and contemporary kitchens, 2018 has been an inspiring year where our Craftsman and Designers have continued to excel in our mission to build Designs For Living! Creating additional living spaces that perfectly balance function and form are always central to our design considerations.
Designing maximal natural light flow into the home and bespoke LED lighting concepts have illuminated our work again this year, as the psychological benefits of natural light and ambient surroundings stay high on the list of clients’ priorities.
Yet again we are overjoyed and humbled by the recognition we have received from Rhondda Cynon Taff (RCT) Building Control and the LABC by winning four prestigious building awards.
This was our year!
From Award Winning to Multi-Award Winning!
April 2018 was an inspiring and humbling month for us. Through the hard work and dedication of our skilled team of expert craftsman and Excel’s ethos of intuitive, design-led construction, we were delighted to have won four prestigious building awards.
First Excel won three Rhondda Cynon Taff Building Control Awards in the categories for:
• BEST EXTENSION OR ALTERATION TO AN EXISTING HOME
• BEST CHANGE OF USE OF AN EXISTING BUILDING OR CONVERSION
• BEST LOCAL BUILDER OR TRADITIONAL CRAFTSPERSON
All three Local Award Entries were deemed to have achieved the required level of excellence to be put forward for the Local Authority Building Control South Wales Regional Awards, in their respective categories.
We were overjoyed on Friday 27th April, when we won the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) South Wales Regional Award for:
• BEST EXTENSION OR ALTERATION TO AN EXISTING HOME.
The LABC Building Excellence Awards are the largest business-to-business awards in the UK.
The appeal of In & Out living continues, as awareness of the benefits a Sunroom can bring over a conventional conservatory, becomes widespread.
In many cases, a new Sunroom is far more than just additional space. It is now often designed as the new hub of the home, particularly when this includes an open plan kitchen.
The optimum combination of Velux windows and Bi-folding doors ensure maximum light throughout the year. The Bi-folding doors fold out to create a transitional space between the home and garden. When the sun is out, they really do bring the outside in and the inside out.
We were delighted to have completed this stunning Sunroom for some wonderful customers.
“We’re absolutely delighted with our new kitchen extension. It’s surpassed all of our expectations and made a huge difference to our family home. Everyone has been amazed at the transformation and can’t believe what has been achieved in such a short amount of time.
We’d wholeheartedly recommend Russell and his team at Excel Home Design for being professional, reliable, and trustworthy, but also extremely patient and respectful. Thanks guys!’

With the hustle and bustle of modern life, we all need a personal relaxation space to refresh, recharge and relax.
At Excel, we design bathrooms to be your own mini spa. Marrying elegant design with functionality, the bathrooms create a tranquil environment where colour and lighting help us unwind and feel reborn. Here are some of the bathroom sanctuaries we have created this year!
The kitchen is no longer just a cooking zone. It’s an entertainment centre where we co-ordinate quick snacks whilst watching TV, family meals to share the day’s activities and dinner parties with on-trend vibes playing in the background from the inbuilt sound system.
From additional storage to creating a social spot in your kitchen, bespoke Islands offer many benefits and certainly delivers that WOW factor.
We have certainly enjoyed helping our clients celebrate in the culinary arts and their flair for entertaining with these stunning, bespoke kitchens!
We were very proud when our Director Russel Everett added to his extensive qualifications by becoming a Chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB).
Achieving this standard not only consolidates the extensive knowledge within the company, but also continues to assure our customers that Excel Home Design will manage everything to the highest standard from concept to creation.
We have more exciting news to follow in the New Year, so this watch this space!
The Big News for 2019
We are very much looking forward to 2019 with many exciting Designs For Living projects to show you and for us to begin work on. One very close to our hearts will be our new home at St George’s Church in Tonyrefail. We have been looking for a perfect venue that will serve as an exciting environment within which we will be able to showcase our work to our clients.
St George’s Church is an easy to reach destination, with ample parking and is a majestic building which we will renovate to act as a shining example of our capability as an Award Winning Building company. We are able to meet anyone interested in talking about creating their own Design For Living project right now. We do operate a ‘by appointment’ service, so please contact us to find out more. We look forward to sharing with you the development of St George’s as it happens.
From the whole team at Excel Home Design, we wish you a prosperous New Year.
