Designs for Life by Cottage have been in business for 30 years. Here, director Jane Nixon tells us how
What service does your business offer?
We describe ourselves as a one stop shop for all your home improvements. We refurbish homes, be it kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms or home offices. We build extensions, remove walls, move windows, boilers, doors, fit new doors or ceilings; we do as much or as little as you require. We genuinely care about our customers and treat them as we would like to be treated. When working in homes it is vital that there is a relationship of mutual respect and trust. Our name and service may be traditional but our products and designs are cutting edge, top quality products at the most competitive prices.
What is the secret of your longevity?
A true family business for 30 years, our business is built upon customer satisfaction and reputation. It's quite simple - in our industry, to be a successful business you have to respect and care for your customers. It's our passion, pride and sense of achievement all rolled into one when our customers are thrilled with the work we've done. We've bumped into customers at the local shops, restaurants, the school run and even on holiday. We care that they are satisfied and that we can look them in the eye with pride.
After 30 years some of our original customers are still returning to us - for some we've refurbished every room in the house! For others we are on the fourth and fifth kitchen depending on how many times they have moved. It's lovely that even though they can't take their kitchen with them, they can take us!
Where are you?
Our showroom is at the main lights in the centre of Timperley village. We love to talk homes, so we encourage people to call in to chat about what they are thinking of for their home. We can create designs and offer quotations, all at no charge and no obligation - though we do find that once someone has visited, they choose to work with us.
