About

We launched A & R Design as a small, local, family business back in 1996, building on the experience we both already had in design and decoration, to offer a high quality service to our clients, encompassing all aspects of property refurbishment and renovation – see what we do.

This original ethos remains at the heart of our business, and we have built on these firm foundations and have gone from strength to strength, by offering only the highest quality service and craftsmanship to all our customers.

We are now a well-established firm, with over 40 years’ combined experience in all aspects of the trade, and we work with a hand-picked team of 30 trusted and fully accredited professionals, each with specialist expertise.

We believe that word of mouth is the best advertising a business can get and the very fact that over 85% of our custom comes from referrals proves to us that we are doing our job right. We have an excellent success rate for finishing our work to the highest standard within budget.

New kichen & diner formed from 2 rooms
Customer Service
Quality

We had a tired kitchen which linked through to a back room that was never used. A&R Design undertook the removal of the kitchen, removal of a substantial wall, removal of patio door and windows, installation of 2 large steel beams, bi-fold doors, new windows, new kitchen installation in a new position, underfloor heating, new radiators, all plumbing, electrics, plastering painting and finishing and renovation of a utility room. All of this was carried out in a most professional manner by a fantastic crew that were always polite and cheerful, kept us informed and consulted at all times and kept the site clean and tidy with the minimum of disruption. The finished kitchen and diner is amazing and ended up being far better than we could have expected. Can't recommend A&R Design enough.

We had a loft conversion and an extension to convert our small kitchen, utility room and garage into a large kitchen, new bathroom and new double bedroom. It was great to work with A&R throughout the process, the whole team were professional and the work was to the standard we hoped for and more. A&R really help with ideas an suggestions to make the build the best it could be. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to improve and expand our living space and we are glad we chose A&R to do the work!

A&R built our rear and side extensions. From start to finish they were absolutely great to work with. Every part of the process was carried out with care and attention to detail. Any queries or comments were communicated to us clearly and quickly. And we now have two great new living spaces. We would highly recommend A&R and will be using them again in the near future.

3 metre single storey extension at the rear of the property, creating a new kitchen, cloakroom and utility area. Drainage, plumbing and electrical work was undertaken. The new kitchen is light and airy. A and R Design were very helpful in suggesting the layout. It was quite interesting watching the constant stream of different trades arrive to do their job then make way for the next person. Very well choreographed! When the odd problem arose it was dealt with quickly.

New Kitchen Design and Build

A & R worked tirelessly to design and build a new kitchen for us. From the initial project meeting until the final tasks we were extremely impressed with their knowledge, experience and professionalism. The main kitchen fitter was extremely tidy and friendly. The design of our kitchen was adapted over time and A & R were very helpful in listening to our needs and making the changes. We are delighted with the final finished product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family. C. Whetstone 16.05.2017

A & R recently completed a rear extension and loft conversion at our house in Enfield. We are very pleased with the results and would highly recommend them. We have had a number of complimentary comments about how the work has improved the house and the high quality. Robert and his team are highly professional, easy to work with and made the whole experience as painless as was possible.

Bathroom refurbishment including minor building work
Customer Service
Quality
Value
A&R Designs refurbished all bathrooms in our house, which included combining two bathrooms into one, moving some walls, replacing all the tiles, sanitary ware etc. In two bathrooms and one cloakroom, and advising us throughout on the best design, best products to go for etc. We were very pleased with the result. Allison was very generous with sharing her experience, excellent taste and wisdom when it came to making choices (which we really needed) and all her team were highly-skilled and very considerate. It was quite easy to continue living in the house while the work was going on, as they were very tidy, flexible and considerate with their timings. Allison pays a lot of attention to detail and strives for perfection, which we appreciated greatly. We also thought it was very good to have a local company doing the work, as they could be at our house within 5 minutes if needed (e.g. when the tile delivery guy insisted on leaving the tiles on the road where they were in the way of traffic - Robert turned up a few minutes later and moved all the tiles for us inside the house, which was very kind of him). If we do any more building work on our house, we would definitely ask A&R Designs to do it for us.

Single storey kitchen extension
Customer Service

A and R Design finished our single-storey kitchen extension about 2 months ago. It came in on-time and on-budget. The two lead builders were on site nearly every day during the 10-week build and, not only did they bring their skill, dedication and attention-to-detail to the project, they also maintained an upbeat and courteous disposition throughout the build. Despite having to completely remove our existing kitchen to build the new extension, we were never without water, heating or cooking facilities - and our comfort was clearly as important to them as the build itself. The finished extension elicits genuine gasps of admiration from all who see it, especially those who remember the existing kitchen as it was. It's truly a fantastic room - light, spacious and well-designed, and they've even pulled off the seemingly-impossible task of making our garden seem bigger, despite having to steal some of it for the new build. Rob and Allison are the husband and wife team who run the company, and as well as being the first point of contact, they also act as project mangers for the build. They were always available to supervise, answer questions and provide quotes for any additional work, as well as coming up with helpful ideas and solutions to problems. Perhaps more importantly, their experience and family-orientated ethos ensures that every project is completed in a friendly and positive atmosphere, as well as to an extremely high standard.

Kitchen Overhaul
Customer Service

A & R Design recently gave our kitchen a complete overhaul. Not an easy job as this involved dealing with knocking through walls, correcting a number of plumbing issues and problem electrics. All of which were dealt with smoothly and with minimal disruption. We are so pleased with the final result. The team are very trustworthy and didn't require babysitting. We were happy to leave them to work while we went on holiday. Allison and Robert were very patient with our requests for information and gave us time and space to make our own decisions. Allison was able to give us interior design suggestions and this helped to create the wow factor. We are so happy with the work that has been undertaken and would have no qualms about recommending them. A great family owned company.
