Medium Renovation Project Winner
This breath-taking renovation has produced an open-plan paradise bathed in natural light thanks to the dual lantern roof windows. The project was a complete renovation that included a new Sunroom, kitchen, bathroom, and wrap-around double extension providing an abundance of space.
The sunroom contains three main living zones and a functional set of bi-fold doors that beckons visitors outside the patio space for true “In & Out Living”.
A new underfloor heating system ensures energy efficiency, with an LED lighting system offering a choice of uplighting, downlighting and floodlighting via the specially designed canopy installed above the central kitchen island.
The heating and lighting all run from a Hive system for convenience and efficiency, including underfloor heating.
“Our ‘house’ has undergone such a transformation and has now become our forever ‘home’. Russell and his team have been nothing short of professional, trustworthy and supportive from start to finish.
Never in our wildest dreams could we have envisaged a ‘home’ like this, but Excel have made it happen. Our fantastic new open plan space has created a new style of ‘living’ which we love.” – Nikki and Jason
Small Renovation Project Winner
Initially planned as a kitchen renovation project, the brief expanded to include a redesigned balcony above and provide easy access to the ground floor cooking facilities from the rear garden.
The revamped balcony features a new floor covering, a glass and stainless-steel balustrade and bespoke lighting to help set the mood for those dining al fresco.
The clients were thrilled with the build, stating “We are so very pleased with the end result. It looks amazing! We can’t wait to make full use of the outside patio in the summer.”
Kitchen Project Winner
This stunning kitchen design doubles as an entertainment space for the client’s friends and family, replete with clever storage options and made-to-measure units, all arranged around a central breakfast bar.
This focal point also boasts a bespoke canopy and hob cooking area, as well as a newly installed LED lighting system.
Opposite the kitchen, a specially designed TV cabinet also incorporates a custom-made wine rack. Colour-contrasting quartz work surfaces and a lovely timber-effect tile floor complete a beautiful kitchen that is sure to ‘wow’ guests for years to come.
The kitchen was an important zone for the customers who wanted a chic, modern look with the functionality to cook, entertain and congregate together all in one. The patio could be easily accessed via the large, sliding doors for In & Out Living.
“Excel Home Design were different to everyone else. We did shop around but as soon as they came they gave us a clear vision of what we could have.” – Katrina Cross

Bathroom Project Winner
Excel Home Design Ltd have lived up to their name with the creation of this luxury en-suite bathroom. The new vaulted ceiling features four Velux windows to accompany a redesigned main window, creating an abundance of natural light and ventilation.
A stylish new bathtub has been installed within a quartz surround, carefully designed to incorporate the room’s main windowsill. The bath is also fitted with a flush-mounted overflow and the taps are wall-mounted into a quartz upstand surrounding it.
All the units are a bespoke design with a large integrated sink and mirror acting as a focal point, with a contrasting tile finish completing a gorgeous aesthetic.
