Elfin Kitchens Premium range offers solution for homeless women

Elfin Kitchens has supplied 20 ‘Premium 1000’ kitchens to White Heather House in Southend-on-Sea. The installation was part of a new build project by charitable organisation HARP, which has constructed the facility to offer accommodation to homeless women in the area.

The purpose-built property consists of three buildings; two with eight en suite rooms each, while the third adds another four. All 20 ‘Premium 1000’ kitchens were finished in stainless steel and were supplied with a range of ‘Bolt-ons’, including splashbacks, side cheeks and wall cupboards.

Mitch Hutchens DEM (Hons), HARP Property Manager, said: “White Heather House not only provides an additional 20 beds for local homeless people, but the introduction of HARP’s new single gender service will also broaden the support available to empower local women that are homeless to make a positive change in a safe and supportive environment too.

“The installation of such high quality kitchens is so important to us, as we pride ourselves on providing safe accommodation of a high standard – especially as those that will be moving in will have been through a difficult time and having a nice place to retreat to is the first step towards recovery. We are really happy with the service and installation provided by Elfin Kitchens and are pleased to have been able to install such excellent facilities.”

Bob Andrew, Managing Director at Elfin Kitchens, added: “We’re really proud to have been involved in this project, especially as HARP will be helping individuals in need in the local area. We’re confident in the longevity of our products, so there is no reason why these units shouldn’t continue to provide practical and good looking kitchen facilities for many years to come.”

The ‘Premium 1000’ range of kitchens incorporates high quality appliances, including a refrigerator, sink and tap, plus a choice of solo microwave or combination microwave, oven and grill. In addition, ‘Premium 1000’ models are supplied with optional soft close drawers and optional ceramic hotplate.

All ‘Premium 1000’ models are also available in a range of colours, from gloss powder coated White and Claret, to matt powder coated Sand and Bronze.

Starting at 900mm wide up to 1500mm, compact kitchens from Elfin save space and offer great flexibility, with right or left-hand versions available, as well as hotplates, dishwashers, combi-ovens and additional storage units.
