Bed & Breakfast is given new lease of life – in time for check in! 

Bed & Breakfast is given new lease of life – in time for check in! 

David MacLehose and his wife, Anne, have been the proud owners of the Beechgrove Bed & Breakfast, in Perth, since 2011. The Victorian-era property, a former vicarage, houses six guest suites and, due to its semi-rural location in a beautiful part of Scotland, thousands of guests frequent the B&B every year. 

As such a sought-after location for a weekend getaway, it should come as no surprise that Beechgrove B&B falls victim to a certain amount of wear and tear. As any other successful business owner will know, closing up shop to make time for any sort of property renovations can significantly impact revenue and client engagement. After seven years of continual custom, it became clear to David and Anne that significant ‘sprucing up’ was needed.  

“We use the kitchen for so much more than just preparing meals. Much like other people’s homes, we spend most of our time here. The worktops were becoming tired and, as the kitchen acts as such a multi-purpose space, we both decided replacing the worktops was our first priority. Ripping out the entire space and starting all over again would have been a non-starter. We would have been without a kitchen completely and would have had no choice but to close the B&B for at least a couple of weeks. 

“Luckily, we were introduced to Robert Campbell and the team at TREND Transformations Perth. They made it all so easy. Within a few hours of visiting the team in the showroom, Robert was out at the property, providing us with a quote and explaining how it all worked. Once he described the innovative fitting process, it became clear that updating our kitchen with TREND was a no brainer.”

TREND Transformations is a home renovation business that offers quality-minded home and business owners an extensive choice of makeover solutions, without the demolition, debris and disruption associated with conventional kitchen and bathroom installations. The exclusive ‘top that fits on top’ service allows beautiful high-grade work surfaces to be fitted directly over existing worktops, tiled walls and other finishes, eliminating the need for removal, shortening the project timescale and reducing costs. 

“It’s why our product works so well for those who are working to a limited timescale,” explained Robert Campbell, owner of TREND Transformations, Perth. “The team really enjoyed working on this project. David and Anne were so open to our ideas and made full use of our complimentary design process. Getting them back in the kitchen – and back in business – was of the utmost priority to the us, and we’re so happy they were both pleased with the result.” 

With the entire renovation taking less than 24 hours, David and Anne were back in business and once again welcoming the many patrons of Beechgrove B&B – and David would recommend the process to any other likeminded business owner in the same predicament.

“The entire process, from start to finish, was seamless. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, and they completely understood how multi-functional we needed the space to be. The notion that nothing need be completely ripped out and replaced is the perfect solution for any hospitality business, looking to modernise, refresh, or completely renovate. The work took no time at all and has made a significant impact on our productivity. It’s the best thing we did for our home and business.”
