Kitchen:Republic – Areas of Expertise


Of course we provide all the normal services you would expect from a dedicated kitchen company such as the design and supply of kitchens, which is covered in great detail in other areas of this website. However it is our extra level of service when it comes to installation that sets us apart from the competition, you see Kitchen Republic was born out of a property refurbishment company that has been transforming homes in Brighton & Hove for the best part of 15 years. In addition to gaining our specialist knowledge within the kitchen industry, we are also experts in many other areas of construction closely linked with the fitting of your new kitchen.

We spend considerable time on the technical specification of items such as tiling, electrics, plumbing… even the paint we use for your walls has been carefully selected to give maximum durability whilst still having a beautiful matt finish. What’s more we hold direct accounts with major brands such as Porcelanosa, Designers Guild, Little Greene, and Fired Earth to name just a few, meaning that we offer you the full interior package to complete your room, often at prices which other retailers can’t touch.

Full Range Of Building Services

Carpentry – Of course much of kitchen fitting is carpentry based and we have heavily invested in some of the best wood working tools on the market to ensure the work is quicker, cleaner and of high accuracy.

Although most of our kitchens are constructed off site, we have the skills and tools to create custom units directly on site to ensure a perfect fit. In addition our carpenters undertake all manner of tasks such as timber flooring, skirting’s, window and door installations. If it’s made of wood, then we can build and install it.

Electrical – All electrical work is undertaken by our qualified electricians and to the latest regulations. Electrical changes can either be minor changes to the current system or a complete overhaul with new rings and consumer units installed.

All new installations are designed with one eye on the future so should you wish to add to it a later date, certain elements can be upgraded with little cost. We also give careful consideration as to what is powered and how. For instance we often place any fridge freezers on their own dedicated RCD protected circuit, so should the power trip for any reason whilst you are out or away on holiday, you can be sure it will not knock out your chilled or frozen goods with it.

Plumbing – Whilst our customers are unlikely to get all excited about the plumbing. We still take great pride in the trade and ensure that it remains hidden just like it should be!

One of our pet hates is sink units that are filled with needless excess pipework due to poor planning. Extra time is taken to make sure you can still use these cupboards with maximum storage instead of fighting for space to place your washing powder.

Along with the general plumbing to sinks and heating, we can also install handy extras such as filtered water systems and boiling fresh water taps.

Plastering – Perfect walls and ceilings are always a good grounding when it comes to presenting a well fitted kitchen.

Whether it’s a simple skim over the existing or taking back to brick and starting again, our plasterers have the skills to produce a super smooth surface. In addition new coving or restoration to some of Brighton’s finest Regency cornices can be carried out with care and attention to detail.

Tiling – The tiling industry has changed vastly over the last 4 or 5 years with technological advances in producing new tiles in an exciting mix of different compositions, sizes and styles.

Now more than ever you have to be at the top of your game, as it is no longer simply a case of sticking square bits of ceramics to walls and floors. We keep up to date with the latest developments in fixing techniques and materials on the market. You can be sure your tiling will be specified and installed to the highest standards and look great for years to come.

Kitchen Republic through its trade links can supply tiles from some of the best names in the business such as Porcelanosa, Fired Earth and Original Style at very competitive prices.

Decoration – Decorating is a huge passion of ours and is where our sister building company Colour Republic started in the industry some 15 years ago before evolving in to the complete property refurbishment firm it is today.

Attention to detail has always been of the highest order for our Brighton decorators and that level of skill has been at the root of all work carried out ever since. Along with general decoration we have made quite a name for ourselves with the installation of wall coverings. We regularly hang wallpapers from just a few pounds a roll up to exclusive designs and materials which can cost hundreds of pounds a meter.

What Our Client’s Say

Hi Rob, I know it’s been some time since we last spoke but just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for all the hard work you and the guys put in. Our new kitchen really has made a huge difference to us and has already been the venue of quite a few late night dinner parties! Most agree the glass splashbacks look amazing, i’ve no shame in admitting i’m quite enjoying making our friends just a little bit jealous. Opps!
Linda F., Hove
Kitchen Republic certainly designed a kitchen far more visually stunning than any other plans we had from local firms. This along with impressive knowledge of materials available gave us great confidence in just letting them run with it. Whilst we did spend more than we originally budgeted, it is money very well spent for the beautiful results acheived. Highly recommended.
Paul R., Brighton
Right from the initial meeting it was clear to us these guys know what they are talking about. We thought we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted but Rob (the owner) showed us just how much more usable our space could be with a few simple tweeks. We are thankful we found a company who delivered a better kitchen than we ever imagined, in what is essentially quite a small area.
