Dave Brailsford, Head of GB cycling, when asked what made the difference between Team GB and others at the 2012 Olympics, said that it was all about attention to detail. In his field Steve Flewitt has the same approach. He consults on numerous occasions to make sure he is planning what is required, his preparation is meticulous, his work rate is amazing and the quality of what is produced is outstanding. On top of all this he's just a really nice guy who arrives when he says he will, keeps you up to date with progress, minimises inconvenience to normal existence and finishes the job within the time scale he sets. The result is what Steve's tag line is: “An installation that turns dreams into reality". We now have a superb, very workable kitchen. Not only was the kitchen finished within the timescale quoted but Steve has since been in touch to make sure everything is to our liking. And what brought us to Steve in the first place? Recommendations from three very satisfied previous customers. Two friends who have seen the finished kitchen have already requested Steve's details and we were happy to oblige.

Having had surgery on both knees I knew that a walk in shower would make life much easier, but could not face the trailing around and organizing that I thought would be necessary. When I admired my friends' new bathroom and they explained that with 1st for Bathrooms and Kitchens I would not even have to leave the house my problems were solved. From the beginning to the end Steve made it as easy as possible. I was never without water and he tidied up meticulously at the end of each day. He even came in on the Bank Holiday to finish a job. I am delighted with my new bathroom and very impressed by the high standard of the work. I can highly recommend 1st For Bathrooms and Kitchens and the kindness and patience of it's owner. .

Steve came to us highly recommended by friends whose bathrooms and kitchens he had transformed. We are now the delighted owners of a "Steve" bathroom, lovely to look at and finished to the highest standards. He has,in addition to all his technical skills, a very calm and reassuring manner. He accepts that for some people decision making is difficult and is always ready to listen and discuss alternatives. He is endlessly patient and with his years of experience can be relied on to steer you in the right direction. We cannot recommend 1st Bathrooms and Kitchens highly enough, in fact, one of our friends having seen our bathroom, immediately contacted Steve and is now another very satisfied customer. Thank you Steve. Brian and Pauline Groves

Steve was recommended to us by friends who described him as "a perfectionist". Since this recommendation Steve has re-styled our kitchen, bathroom and two toilets The results have been stunning. Not only is Steve a perfectionist inhis workmamship but he makes practical and tactful suggestions and solves any problems that may arise. Steve provided us with working timetables so that we what was in or out of action at any time and he did his utmost to make the processes as pain free as possible. We found him to be totally reliable - always coming exactly when he said he would and alwas contactable. The results have been stunning.

1st For Bathrooms & Kitchens has transformed a tired leaky bathroom into our very own Italian Spa. Despite our own conflicting ideas, we were diplomatically guided through the decision process and given expert advice in choosing from a wide array of stylish products. The quality of craftsmanship, from a hand built tiled boiler cupboard and sink area to the tiling of our irregular walls was of an exceptionally high standard. We were continually consulted throughout the process and given daily updates on progress. Each day the bathroom was thoroughly swept and tidied and throughout the process we were never left without the use of toilet, bath or sink. We would thoroughly recommend 1st for Bathrooms & Kitchens. A quality company that really cares.

Steve Flewitt installed a new bathroom for us during the summer, but the story begins some 9 months prior to this. We had received his name by recommendation. In initial discussions he was more than happy to spend time and effort discussing our needs and how that might come together in a final design. We were impressed by his creativity, technical knowledge and pragmatic advice. Having established precisely what we wanted, Steve went “the extra mile" to ensure what we said we wanted would work to our expectations. This highlighted a problem with the flow rate of mains water to our 1930's property. Apparently, the previous 75 years had taken its toll and the water pipe had filled with lime scale to a point where the flow rate was very poor. Steve made all the measurements, gave advice on who to contact to resolve the problem and even spoke to individuals at the Water Board on our behalf. This facilitated considerably our efforts to resolve the problem which involved the Water Board replacing our road side stop cock and our insurance replacing the pipe to our property. What makes this more commendable was that at this stage Steve did not have a confirmed order and the resolution of the problem took many months. Having confirmed our order Steve produced a detailed plan and schedule on how the job would be completed. This was not just a paper exercise; he maintained progress precisely against it, completing the work on time. Throughout the period Steve kept everything clean and tidy and delivered work to the highest quality standards, responding in full to our comments as the work progressed. Upon completion everything looked exactly as we had expected and worked perfectly. But the story does not quite end there, following completion, Steve has remained in contact to ensure that we are still happy with the work and everything continues to operate as required. In conclusion my wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Steve Flewitt for any bathroom or kitchen renovation. He is an excellent designer, a dedicated worker and an outstanding practitioner of customer service.
We found Steve via a Google search and asked him to quote for our conversion of a fourth bedroom into an en suite. We also asked some well-known Nottingham bathroom companies to quote too and not having any personal recommendations, we were cautious in our approach. While all quotes were around a similar price, we awarded Steve the business for a range of reasons: He was the most innovative in terms of design. He thought outside the box, was aesthetically aware and sympathetic, and he provided 3D drawings each time we decided on a different approach so we could visualise the outcome (which was very helpful for me as I discovered I was very poor at visualising how a room would look after it had been worked on). He was the most attentive in terms of materials. Steve brought lots of ideas to the table and popped over many times to deliver samples. He was very responsive even though up to this point he had not secured the business. In contrast, the other companies left us alone for many weeks and when they did get in touch it was a phone call from an unknown salesperson. He provided the most comprehensive estimate (of anyone I have ever known!). There was absolute transparency in terms of what you were paying for and what you would get and that made it easy to make decisions along the way. He asked and worked to our budget rather than assuming anything. He offered choice of products and materials. Some of the more well known companies insisted you purchase all fixtures and fittings from their range and we didn't necessarily want or like what they had to offer. Although we wanted Steve to do the job, based on the above reasons, we were still hesitant at the point of awarding the contract because he was just one man and it was a big job with lots of different skills required: building, plumbing, tiling, joinery, plastering ... We asked Steve for some references and called some previous clients who all spoke of the quality of his workmanship and his exacting standards. And so we decided to go with Steve. In hindsight, and now as one of the existing clients, we would wholeheartedly recommend Steve. He is punctual, reliable, hardworking, exacting, good company, and most of all, he did exactly what he promised and created a beautiful en suite for us to enjoy each and every day. We already have plans for Steve to return to work on another bathroom and in fact, I would consider utilising his skills in as many different ways as I possibly could. We can't recommend Steve highly enough and would be glad to speak to any prospective clients considering employing his services.
