I highly recommend David de Mestre of Inspired Restorations. He offers an incomparably high standard of workmanship, technical expertise, design flair and professionalism. David has just completed renovating a bath/shower-room in our late nineteenth century terrace house and has transformed a rather tired space into an attractive modern bath/shower room whilst sensitively accounting for its context in a late Victorian house. He carried out the work himself, except for the plastering and electrical work which was completed by his sub-contractors to his same rigorous standards. He closely consulted us through out the project ensuring that every feature met or exceeded our expectations on budget - his insightful technical and design advice was invaluable. Thoughtfully, at the end of each day’s work, the workspace and access routes were left impeccably tidy. It was a pleasure to have David undertake the project, which is reflected by the outstanding recommendations of all the other reviewers on the Which Trusted Traders website. Unsurprisingly, you may have to wait a few months before David can fit you into his customer schedule, but it is very definitely worth the wait. Contact David if you would like to see the project he undertook for us.

We were extremely fortunate to get David de Mestre of Inspired Restorations to renovate one of the two bathrooms in our Victorian house, and turn it into a modern shower-room. We can't recommend him highly enough. He manages to combine superb technical expertise with very good taste. He's a great communicator and takes pains to find out what it is you want, and then present you with options for achieving it. When you don’t know what you want, he is happy to come up with suggestions which, in our experience, turned out exactly right. He's a great problem solver, and is a bit of a perfectionist. His rates are very reasonable given the high quality of his work, and the project was finished on time and on budget. He did most of it himself, but brought in an electrician and a floorer whose work was of a similarly high standard. David is also a really great guy and it was a pleasure to have him working in our house for a couple of weeks. He'll be coming back to do our other bathroom later in the year.

We found David de Mestre of Inspired Restorations via the Which Trusted Trader website, are very pleased we did so. We needed a complete bathroom renovation in a house that is tenanted, including incorporation into the bathroom of an adjacent airing cupboard on the landing. David's quote was in line with some of the others we got, but the deciding factor that made us choose him was his professional approach and his flexibility to adapt to the specific needs of the property and usage. He totally appreciated that this bathroom not only had to look good but that it also needed to be durable for tenants. We were delighted with the workmanship. We are hoping he will come and work on our own house later this year.

This Summer (2017) David de Mestre completely renewed our shower room and upgraded our en suite, with great care and attention to detail. He talked through the various options and explained what he proposed to do and why, which gave us confidence in the end result - which was excellent. Our two shower rooms have been transformed to a very high standard and we would highly recommend Inspired Restorations Oxford Ltd.

A wondrous transformation

David De Mestre has just completed a third project in my 17th century cottage, this being the most challenging: to convert my dingy, dysfunctional kitchen into a welcoming working space. I had complete faith in his abilities and this was well-founded. Whilst respecting my ideas, he gently nudged me towards better solutions - such as drawers behind the kickboards and a sinuous shelf contraption for the corner cupboard. Over the few weeks of the build, he worked tirelessly and with great care, overcoming the difficulties posed by the age and layout of the space, to give me a kitchen that is a joy to behold as well as to use; I could not be more delighted. Throughout the time that he was here, David was thoroughly considerate and at pains to perfect his work - even repainting units for which I had chosen the wrong shade - all this with the utmost good humour. I am only sorry that I do not have more rooms upon which he could perform his magic.

We live in a 1960s house with a bathroom that hasn't had an update for 20 years or more. We discussed a basic design with a knowledgeable supplier, decided on a layout and bought the fittings. Given the challenges presented by a 55 year old house, we asked for a recommendation of a fitter who would work with us to ensure that these and any associated problems were identified and overcome. We had estimates from three and had no hesitation in choosing David as someone who appeared meticulous, skillful, pragmatic - essential as some elements of the job couldn't be worked out in detail before he started - and took a pride in his work. Above all, he was clear that he would work with us and consult about the job at all stages. We weren't disappointed. As the job progressed, issues emerged and were dealt with, sometimes with considerable ingenuity. The quality of the work was excellent whether David did it himself (which was most of it) or was subcontracted (e.g. electrician and plasterer). Some of the changes he suggested were subtle but effective. The finished bathroom is beautiful - better than we could have hoped for. David gave an estimate of cost which was accurate, reasonable and not exceeded. In summary, David is easy to work with, meticulous (often ingenious), in what he does and we have no hesitation in recommending him. He won’t be the cheapest, or the most expensive quote you'll get but will almost certainly be one of the best.

Dave has just redone our old bathroom from scratch, fitting a new bath, washbasin, toilet and tiles, and has re-done all the old plumbing more efficiently. He worked very tidily, cleaning up at the end of every day, and finished the job in a week. The workmanship is of a very high standard all round. We recommend Dave unreservedly - he clearly knows what he's doing and how to achieve a beautiful finished product.

We used David for a bathroom modernisation - demolishing a partition wall to join the toilet & bathroom into one, & installing a new suite, re-tiling etc. Very pleased with both the outcome and the process of getting it done. Highly recommended.

David has recently completely refurbished our bathroom, shower, tiling, basin etc. etc. Both my wife and I were impressed with David's attention to detail, especially the fact that he wanted constant feedback from us to make sure that the job was done to our satisfaction - which he achieved.. I think the attribute that impressed us most about David was his pride that he has towards his work. He was as excited as us to see what the bathroom would look like. David assisted us in making all the right choices. He is now undertaking further work for us. Thanks David, well done !
