The heart of a home

Derbyshire Life - - Homes & Interiors - WORDS AND PHO­TOS: Geoff Ford

Re­cently cel­e­brat­ing its 90th an­niver­sary as the go-to place for home fur­nish­ings in Derby, Hun­ters has now added kitchens to its range

Hun­ters of Derby, the city’s lead­ing home fur­nish­ing re­tailer, have ex­tended their prod­uct range and ser­vices to in­clude kitchens and kitchen de­sign, adding to the ex­ist­ing range of home in­te­ri­ors and de­sign ser­vices avail­able at the iconic store on Babing­ton Lane.

‘We are re­ally ex­cited to have launched our Nep­tune Kitchens De­part­ment,’ said Nina Sheard, di­rec­tor and in­te­rior de­signer at Hun­ters. ‘The launch, at our 90th an­niver­sary event in Oc­to­ber, went very well and since then Con­nie, our kitchen de­signer, has been re­ally busy with lots of in­ter­est and con­sul­ta­tions. We were all so ex­cited when the first or­der came through!’

With kitchen de­signer Con­nie Sharpe join­ing the team, Hun­ters now has the ca­pa­bil­ity to of­fer a de­sign ser­vice for the whole house. ‘We can do the whole thing from con­sul­ta­tions and de­sign, lay­out, all the way through to fit­ting, if re­quired, the whole process,’ ex­plains Matthew Sheard, di­rec­tor at Hun­ters and Nina’s hus­band. ‘Our in­te­rior de­sign ser­vice is a grow­ing area of the busi­ness.’

‘Some­times peo­ple re­quire help be­cause they are short on time and de­cid­ing on how you want your home to look can be a lit­tle over­whelm­ing. We can help by pro­vid­ing a tai­lor-made ser­vice that makes it as has­sle-free as pos­si­ble,’ said Nina.

‘We of­fer room plans and colour schemes, we co­or­di­nate de­liv­er­ies and fit­ting and, if re­quired, we can take away cus­tomers old fur­ni­ture for re­cy­cling. Be­cause we have ac­cess to the best brands in fur­ni­ture our cus­tomers know they will be get­ting a pre­mium qual­ity prod­uct with a first-rate ser­vice. We are so ex­cited to have added Nep­tune kitchens. They are the per­fect com­ple­ment for our cus­tomers who are build­ing ex­ten­sions or look­ing at a whole house make-over.
