Everfine Installations first opened the doors to their village showroom, in Eccleston, Lancashire, in September 2015 and since then this family business has really created a name for themselves, with exciting plans ahead.
Headed up by David and Gill Reid, Everfine Installations designs and fits kitchens, bedrooms, and studies. They provide a free planning and design service, all within a friendly and relaxed environment. David and Gill have been married for 12 years and have two children Eva and Fin, which is where the name Everfine comes from.
Between them, David and Gill have over 20 years’ experience. David began his career in the kitchen industry in 1995, starting off as a cabinet maker before moving on to installations, and with his wealth of knowledge and experience he can design and install the kitchen of your dreams.
Gill runs the retail showroom and with her experience in customer care and sales, she is on hand to help and support customers through the entire process, from concept through to installation.
David and Gill Reid are in the hot seat and we want to find out why they are so proud of their family business, what plans they have for 2017 and what they love about living in the area!
Why did you decide to launch Everfine Installations?
We really wanted to start and run a family business where we live and hope that one day, our children, Eve and Fin can join us on this exciting journey!
What does Everfine Installations stand for?
Everfine Installations is a family business that provides extremely high-quality kitchens and fitted furniture. We live and work in the village of Eccleston and we want to ensure that every service we provide is the right one; we aim to get it right each time. We provide the best and we fit the best.
All Everfine kitchens are bespoke and unique and David will advise and deliver the best solution for the customer. This is particularly essential in our area, where there are so many quirky properties that need a bespoke approach from someone who has an eye for detail, and knows what works and what doesn’t.
We want to create a brand that the whole family is proud of. Our reputation is everything and this so much more important to us than making a quick buck!
What do you most enjoy about running Everfine Installations?
We love seeing the end result and although we work with our customers every step of the way, there is nothing better than seeing the finished project.
What time do you start work and finish work?
The show room is open 10am-4.30pm Monday to Friday and 10am-3pm on Saturdays. Additional appointments can be made at times to suit our customers. We are extremely flexible as we understand that people are often working during our opening times, so we are happy to make appointments in the evenings and at weekends, to suit our customer’s needs.
What has been your favourite memory so far?
It has all been so great, it’s difficult to pick one memory, but the standout memory must be when we first opened the doors to Everfine. We couldn’t have been prouder!
What plans do you have for the next year?
We are expanding the showroom, to more than four times the size that it is now. We want to grow the business, but at a steady level to ensure that we maintain the high level of customer service that we are recognised for. We will also be providing a new value range of kitchens, to suit a wide range of budgets.
Why should people use Everfine Installations?
We are a trusted business that cares about our customers and with our experience we know how to provide the best solution for customers each time.
What is the most used service and why do you think that is?
Our most popular and requested service is for kitchens designed by David. People know that David really understands their needs and can deliver kitchens that look good, fit with the style of the property, and are bespoke to each customer.
What are the latest trends in kitchens?
People are really embracing open plan living, where the family can cook, eat, and entertain together, all in one room. Bi-folding doors are also a popular option in kitchens, particularly popular in this part of the world where so much beautiful countryside surrounds us.
Also, in kitchens, the handleless kitchen cupboards are extremely popular as are solid wood materials in grey, and high gloss is still a favourite.
One of the most popular pieces of technology in the kitchen is the tap with boiling water, so no need for a kettle. Or for those with deeper pockets, there is the new Zip Tap, that provides a choice of boiling water, chilled water, and even sparkling water!
Steam ovens are also popular. They are the biggest new development in ovens over recent years, as people are increasingly turning to healthy cooking.
What do you love most about the area you operate in?
We live in Eccleston, just five minutes from our showroom. Our children Eve and Fin both go to the local primary school, across the road from the showroom, so we really are in the perfect location.
We love the tight knit community and since we moved here 12 years ago we have all made so many great friends. It’s amazing how people in this area really like to support and advocate local businesses, it has a great community feel and we wouldn’t change a thing.
What do you like to do on your day off?
On our days off, when we get them, we spend our time at a variety of activities with our children, football, dancing and any extra time is spent taking the dog for a walk around Heskin
In one sentence, why should people use Everfine Installations?
You can trust us to provide the best!
