Meet Claire!

Your specialist Kitchen Restylist in Somerset

If your kitchen is in need of a refurbishment, then you're in the right place!

Hi, I'm Claire.  And being able to spread a little happiness is what gets me out of bed in the morning.

I love nothing more than seeing the smile on my client's face at the 'reveal' when they see their bright and fresh revitalised kitchen for the first time.

Our kitchen plays such an important role in our home these days taking centre stage for many precious family moments.

Where they are looking a little tired (a bit like me sometimes!), being able to transform it into a stunning vision that looks brand new again, and become the heart of the home my client is proud of once again, gives me so much joy.  

Right from a young age, I have struggled with throwing things away and I believe everything deserves a second chance.  So the thought of being able to save something from taking up valuable landfill space and subsequently doing a little bit to preserve our planet for our future generations is so satisfying.

My Story

Leaving school I had no idea what I really wanted to do, and followed the traditional path back then of secretarial / administration work following my mum into working for the local government. 

Fast forward 20 years, I was still there!  I had progressed my career being promoted several times, but left the office often wondering what I had actually achieved despite a super busy day!

In 2018, my friend and colleague tragically died in an accident, at the tender young age of 34.  This really struck a chord with me, only being a few years older than her, wondering what life was really all about.

The following year the chance for voluntary redundancy came up.  I had the choice whether to dig deep and stay there probably until I retired always wondering 'what if' or, take it as a sign from the universe and grasp it with both hands.  I chose the latter! 

So leaving behind a 9-5 office job, I itched my scratch of persuing my own business and spent many hours researching and training in order to follow my heart and be able to make a real difference to someone's home.

I had first picked up a paint brush in 2015 and was instantly addicted.  The transformation I could make to unloved pieces really lit me up and I was rarely from that point forward seen without paint either on hands or clothes - usually both!

Originally restyling furniture, my 'side hustle' started in 2017, but grew to become full-time in 2019.  

Post covid, I have focused and now specialise in kitchen refurbishments, which I find so satisfying and a privilege to be able to make such a difference to my clients' home.

The feeling of walking into a home you love at the end of a busy day really does put a spring in your step and a smile on your face, no matter how hectic the day has been.

Now in my 6th year, I am proud to have been featured in media outlets such as Goodhousing Magazine, Somerset Life and Somerset Living and can honestly say I am loving the journey!
