Fotheringham Homes Case Study

THE BRIEF

The Laings contracts division were asked to design and supply luxury kitchens and bathrooms for Fotheringham homes at their exclusive Glithno development. The project included collaborating with the team at Fotheringham to create an inspiring show house, as well as supporting each of their customers in selecting their dream kitchen and bathrooms for their homes in this unique development.


THE CUSTOMER

Established in 2002, Fotheringham Homes is a family owned and managed business built on over 35 years of construction knowledge and experience.

The company specialises in small developments in the South Aberdeenshire countryside and has worked with the Laings Contracts Division on a number of its projects.

The Laings team is delighted to offer Fotheringham Homes and their customers the ‘Laings experience’, providing them with expert design support and the opportunity to create a kitchen and bathrooms to suit their lifestyles.

DESIGNER

Our Kitchen & Bathroom Contracts Teams were responsible for the design of both the show home and the other properties in the development.

DESIGN

Fotheringham Homes offer their customers the opportunity to work with a Laings designer to create a kitchen and bathrooms to suit their own unique style and requirements.

To inspire their customers, the company asked Laings to design the kitchen and bathrooms within the stunning Glithno show home in a proposed standard layout with some upgrades, to give prospective home buyers an idea of what they could include should they wish to.

The specification of the kitchens and bathrooms in the Glithno show home are of a high standard, featuring luxury German kitchens, Siemens appliances and Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware.

A sleek, contemporary style was chosen for the kitchen, which offers a real contrast to the traditional, painted design created for the company’s previous developments. Stratos units in Carbonite and Polar White were selected for their high shine finish and on-trend colour scheme and the kitchen was designed with a sociable island for cooking and dining at its heart. A range of Siemens appliances were included to show the broad spectrum of products available, including a Combination Steam Oven, Warming Drawer and Built-in Coffee Machine.

The bathrooms combine contemporary glamour with a classic neutral colour palette, producing luxurious spaces for rest and relaxation. Luxury sanitaryware by Villeroy & Boch and brassware by Hansgrohe feature throughout the property, creating a consistent contemporary design style based on clean lines and soft colours. A freestanding bath and wet room shower add wow-factor, while built-in furniture as standard offers crucial bathroom storage.

INSTALATION

All goods were supplied in line with Fotheringham Homes’ build programme and Laings’ Warehouse and Contracts teams worked closely with Fotheringham Homes and each of their customers throughout the project.

RESULTS

Fortheringham Homes and their customers were delighted with the kitchen and bathroom design service provided by Laings throughout the development of the Glithno site.

A very special development, featuring just 9 houses built around a shared green which offers communal seating and a barbeque area, Laings worked closely with Fotheringham Homes to create kitchens and bathrooms which are as unique as the properties and their owners themselves. The second phase of the Glithno site is now under way and the Laings team looks forward to supporting Fotheringham Homes in this new project.
