Your journey to a beautiful home with
Modern Living”


Good design ​never looks tired, ​it’s not about being noticed, it’s to be appreciated and enjoyed.


So how can Modern Living help to reshape and remodel your home?

It’s about removing you from risk.

In the first instance, we take care of everything, removing you from the need to appoint, negotiate, plan and manage all the trades, such as builders, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, tilers and decorators.

​Work with us

Work with us and you won’t need to source separate architects, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and study designers. Who, in our experience, individually has any understanding or desire of how their products and designs however costly - impact or complement the overall remodelling scheme.

We can help you to pull together all the products you’ve seen on the internet and beautifully presented house magazines; helping you to successfully bring together the different designs and styles you desire.

Design & flow

It’s about helping you, when you’re remodelling your home, building an extension in helping to understand how to create public and private areas in your home. How to make sure doors are in the right place so you don’t create corridors or introduce people traffic where there shouldn’t be any, making the most of a beautiful view, the sunlight and your garden.

It’s about making sure that children’s bedrooms are not directly above noisy social areas, about making sure that windows and doors make the most of the available light, and giving you good access to your garden about making sure your kitchen is in the right room, facing the right way.

Making sure that when you’re cooking you are not disturbed and have sufficient preparation space when handling hot pans and casseroles,
work surfaces are close to hand and uncluttered, the dishwasher door doesn’t catch your ankles when down.  

Making sure you don’t inadvertently design bottlenecks, there is room to entertain family and friends, you have an area for the dogs and those muddy boots.


It’s about making sure that when you settle the final bill, you have added value to your home and the way you now want to live. That whenever possible you haven’t spent money you have transferred it from your bank account to your house account. It’s about working with a professional business that has the skill, knowledge and experience to guide you on the right path, a company that has a proven track record in delivering its promises.

​In the first instance.

You will have become frustrated with some of your existing home’s finishes, layout and design; it’s not all bad, but it just doesn’t fulfil the needs of you or your family anymore.

You may be moving into a new home and can already see you it’s not going to work just as you would wish.

You will have identified you need to make changes and improvements but are not sure where to start.

But you all agree.

It’s time

To do something, you will have probably made dozens of phone calls, chatted with friends over dinner, spent hours on the internet, driven hundreds of miles looking at showrooms for inspiration and fallen asleep looking at magazines and brochures with “home” in the title.

You will have discovered there is a bewildering array of choice, quality, price points and standards of service. In order to make any sense of it all, you’re going to have to make hundreds of decisions and choices you’re not confident in making on your own or necessarily qualified to do.

All this is good groundwork, as it gives you an understanding of your likes and dislikes, establishes the standards of quality and workmanship you want in your home and crystallises the need for you to get professional help, the need to appoint a business that can bring all these elements together.

Take the first step

Our team

Driven by its founders Nick Potter & Mark Hamilton along with our great team, our direct approach and ability to often see things other people can’t see allow you to quickly establish if what you’re proposing will work, not only in the way you would like to live now and in the future but also to your home’s value.

In many instances, our involvement is also the crystallisation of whether​ you are being realistic about your budget and allows you to align your understanding and expectations of what is achievable.

Our first visit and discussions are just the start of a journey, a journey of design, discovery and the formulation of an integrated plan for the reshaping and remodelling of your home, the beginning of a partnership.

It is this partnership with Modern Living, along with your vision for the overall concept that will concisely and precisely put the best elements of design into your home, so you can get the best out.

Next stage

Having talked through all the permutations and design options which may take several meetings, it’s then time to move on to the next stage which, depending on individual circumstances, could involve the development of Architectural plans or if required, a visit by our Structural Engineer.

This is followed up by further meetings to develop the plans with the help of our design software.

Once we have agreed on designs for your bespoke kitchen, luxury bathroom, internal remodelling, build and construction work.
It’s time for us to put together a comprehensive costed works schedule gathering all the important and agreed details
This costed schedule will form the basis of all the work we are to do for you.

It is inevitable that certain elements of the design or specification ​need to be fluid and cannot be decided before work commences.

In this instance we will always provide you with  provisional costs so you are able to budget.

Works Schedule

Both the financial detail and specification of all the works required are recorded on a dedicated spreadsheet. This makes everything easy to read, digest and understand. It also allows us to keep you up to date with any changes in specifications and costs. Once we have all the plans, activities and specifications in place, it's time to confirm a start date, agree on a payment schedule and a realistic time frame, so you are able to plan.

​We will also discuss with you, if it's practical for you to remain in residence, or move in, depending on the impact we believe the work undertaken is going to have on your daily life. We will then organise all the different professions and trades who will be involved in seamlessly working together at your home.
​Throughout all the works we will be in constant contact with you either by meetings at your house, email, messaging or phone updates to review and discuss progress, ​we believe this constant communication is vital to your journey.


Very often, as you see things developing, decisions you made two months ago no longer seem appropriate. We are used to this, and getting it right is as important to us as it is to you. This is where our flexibility to advise and adapt to changes plays an invaluable role, it gives you the opportunity to explore and develop any changes you wish to make.

As we are co-ordinating every aspect of the work taking place at your home and in regular contact with you, this gives you the comfort of knowing that every aspect of the work and the link between the designs and tradesmen is being taken care of by someone who has an intimate knowledge of how all the pieces of the jigsaw should fit together and ultimately how everything should look. Often, in busy households, you only have time to review progress in the evening or first thing in the morning, so we rely on regular contact to deal with any issues that may arise. ​

The end

As the last pieces of the remodelling jigsaw come together, you’ll now be able to see the vision we created finally evolving as planned.

At times your home may look like a bomb site. At times things may have seemed to be going slowly, and at times you may have wondered, “will this mess ever end”.​

It will, we promise!


Isn’t having all this space just wonderful - The new floor is just as you imagined
Underfloor heating is such a luxury.
The new shower makes you tingle - Your new kitchen and work surfaces are just as you dreamt.
​The Island is a wonderful centrepiece - ​Storage aplenty and so intelligently designed.
You finally have the space you wanted to entertain - Family meals are now a pleasure to cook and eat.
There is finally enough room for everyone - The garden is now part of your home


​In fact, everything is just perfect, and that’s how we like it to end, with a satisfied client, who has been guided through a very complicated process in a courteous, polite and professional manner.

You will then appreciate choosing Modern Living to handle every aspect of your home’s remodelling.

In the end, it comes down to this:
We will treat your home as if it were our own.
We are as proud of the work we complete on your behalf as you are.
​We are mature enough to understand, this really matters.

Praise from our clients

Stewart & Angela

Dear Mark,

We would like to share our experience with future clients of Modern Living.

If you want something special for your home, you should work with Mark Hamilton and Modern Living.  For us, they have designed and built a new kitchen and family room.  Their hand-crafted kitchens are superb, and they have created for us a wonderful, spacious family room that brings our garden into the home.

The whole process has been very interactive, with design decisions talked through and agreed upon at every stage.  Mark employs high-quality tradespeople who are professional, friendly, and reliable.  We are absolutely delighted with the end product and cannot recommend Modern Living highly enough.

A huge thank you to Mark and all the team who worked on our “Bungalow”.  We could not have wished for a greater group of people in our home.

Stewart & Angela

John & Caroline

Dear Mark,
John and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and all of your marvellous team for transforming our 1980’s bungalow into a complete house renovation when you opened our eyes to the wonders of remodelling and the endless possibilities to improve our home. You have supported us on our personal journey and never faltered with your energy, enthusiasm and passion and together we have achieved a truly stunning result. Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to all of the team involved for their professionalism and for looking after our home so well throughout the entire process. John and I would not hesitate to recommend Modern Living to anyone looking to renovate their home and would encourage them to work together with you, Nick and the team to unlock their home's true potential. No words can truly express what a difference the end result has made in our lives but quite simply our stunning home is now a very special place where we truly feel at peace.

With best wishes
Caroline & John


​Thank you for the work carried out on the loft conversion. It was important to me when looking for a contractor I found one that I could trust in my home whilst I was at work and would keep me up to date with any decisions needed. The Modern Living team did this, with the well-planned schedule and regular updates I felt comfortable and involved with the process. The guys on site were great, hardworking with great attention to detail.  
Thanks again and best wishes,

David - Westonbirt School
Dear Nick & Ted
I just wanted to send over a quick note to say a huge thank you to yourself and Ted for producing such a lovely bar unit. The quality was perfect, and the service received from enquiry through to completion/delivery has been brilliant.
The bar had its first outing a couple of weekends ago and looked great within the setting of the Reading Room and worked really well. We look forward to many more uses out of it.
Best wishes,
Weddings & Events Manager

Kate & Keith

Dear Mark,
We are now the proud owners of a beautiful bespoke kitchen, thanks to Mark and his marvellous team of extremely professional carpenters/plasterers/electricians/cabinet makers/decorators etc.
We wanted a company that could not only fit a beautiful kitchen but one that would ensure that the room was updated, prepared and modified to a very high standard prior to the kitchen fitting. We also deliberately chose Modern Living in order to have the knowledge and support that comes with a Project Manager.
Mark was able to help us right from the start with suggestions and ideas to ensure that our completed kitchen was exactly what we wanted.  And he didn't even flinch when we suggested a slightly different door style! Or when they discovered that part of the floor needed repairing!  Mark was always there making suggestions, keeping an eye and ensuring that things went smoothly.
All the tradesmen involved were brilliant.  Hardworking, careful and diligent throughout their time on-site with us.
A very big thank you to them all. We were also very impressed that they kept to the initial budget, charging only when extras were requested by ourselves.
We can't fully express how really pleased we are and would highly recommend them.
Kate and Keith.

Bob & Carol

Dear Mark,

Ten years on, we are as pleased today as we then with the restructuring transformation to our home designed and carried out by Mark and his team. From his initial vision through to the final details of our kitchen installation and conversion of original kitchen and utility rooms-to our new lounge we were delighted with the quality of their workmanship. They were very accurate with the timescales required for such an extensive project, meticulous in meeting all the building regulations requirements and help every step of the way and included advice on our selection of the various materials and finishes required. Our kitchen has been much admired and the quality of the workmanship in both unit construction and its fitting is superb – it looks exactly as perfect today as it did when it was installed. Mark has also provided excellent after sales' service and was ready to help with the installation of replacement units to ensure the quality of finish was not impaired. We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and Modern Living to anyone considering a similar large transformation project and we still consider his kitchens to be the benchmark for quality.
Once again, many thanks for the help with the new dishwasher install – just so pleased that it is impossible to tell there was a replacement with the new unit installed
Best wishes

Bob and Carol.

Deb & Maurice

Modern Living worked extensively for us, creating a new kitchen, utility and garage. We were delighted with the finished results which look fantastic and are so glad that we went ahead with the work.

Mark and Nick were lovely and very easy to work with; polite and helpful they just wanted us to be happy with everything - and always went the extra mile to make sure they achieved that. They allowed us the flexibility to develop the project as it went along; incorporating extra features as they occurred to us as much as was possible.
Their workforce were friendly and respectful - every single trade that was involved was represented by a thoughtful person who explained their objectives for the day, worked tidily and cleared up to the best of their ability before leaving. They were all lovely, happy people.
Mark has been so good at dealing with the very few snagging items that cropped up post completion; our job was by no means on Modern Living's doorstep but for Mark and his team this has been no obstacle to providing an exceptional service throughout.

Our thanks go out to them all.

Deb and Maurice.

Chris & Andrea

It is impossible to understate how pleased we are with our new kitchen. Mark and his team have delivered beyond our expectation, not only in the finished product, but in their professionalism and insistence on causing as little disruption to us as possible despite moving walls, heating, water and electrics.
The quality of the workmanship, attention to detail and final finish is outstanding.
Particular thanks go to Gary and John for laying out the options clearly throughout the build and ensuring that we ended up with the right solutions, even when it digressed from the agreed plan.
We now have a kitchen which we will spend much more time in as it has become the hub of our house, suited perfectly for our lifestyle.

Thank you to you all.

Chris & Andrea


Good Morning Mark
Just wanted to say, our kitchen is beautiful so thank you. Practising Yoga with the doors open listening to the birds singing this peaceful its..wonderful and worth all the effort.
Kind regards

Mr & Mrs Coleman

As you approach Babdown Airfield, you would be forgiven to think that there was not much up there,
but you would be wrong !!
Inside the hanger is a showroom crammed full of ideas and wonderful bespoke kitchens.
Mark visited our home several times " he was very straight forward " We agreed on a design and cost for our new kitchen, timings and a date for work to start
This was followed up with a detailed itenarry for all the works as agreed, the itinerary proved very accurate, except the kitchen was finished ahead of time, to our delight
All the workmen were very pleasant and hard working, Mark's many visits kept everything on track, informed and up date.

We would certainly recommend Mark and his team

Mr & Mrs Coleman

David & Norma

Dear Mark

We wish to express our gratitude for the excellent renovation of our downstairs cloakroom and toilet, which you and your team have recently completed. The standard of workmanship is of high quality, your team were skilled, polite, punctual and friendly. All this was overseen by you, which enabled us to achieve the finished product which we had planned, with the minimum of stress and inconvenience. When we had concerns you always responded promptly, and visited regularly to check on progress and our satisfaction. We would not hesitate in using you and your team for future projects.
Kind Regards
David & Norma

Richard & Jane

Mark and the Modern Living team were a pleasure to have work in our home. From developing ideas to make the most of our space and rooms through to the highest standard of built bespoke pieces to the professional finish in fitting and painting.
I can't recommend the team highly enough. Thank you for the end result - absolutely delighted.
Richard and Jane

Hi Mark
Loving our new look! The workmanship throughout is superb.
Thanks to you and your team. Jane & Richard

Helen & Jonathan

We were new to the area and contacted Modern Living simply because we saw their advertisement. The good news was that Mark Hamilton got in touch with us promptly and came to discuss our ideas. We warned him that we had the potential to be difficult clients - in the past, we have completed our own building work personally and have high standards. Our project involved building a self-contained annexe using part of the existing ground floor and then extending the remaining area to replace and improve lost accommodation. This needed to be completed while we lived on site.
Mark worked closely with us from the earliest discussions to the planning process and through to the final day. He never seemed phased by us, or our requests and the team which arrived at the start of the build became like family over the next year. There were inevitable hiccups, but the standard of work was great, Mark was always available if we wanted to talk and the home we have now is unrecognisable. One of our particular pleasures is that people come and say ‘it doesn't feel like an extension.' That means a job well done.

Helene and Jonathan

Ray & Shane

After looking at a tired and old kitchen that had eventually died on us, along with most of the appliances in it. We asked Modern Living to bring us back to life. Everything was project managed by Mark who offered us his knowledge and design expertise, keeping us informed of progress all along the way with regular meetings on-site and phone calls all along the journey. A truly professional approach by a company who are backed by a great team of skilled tradesmen and women or should I say "woman" (thanks for all the painting Helen!) The actual build of the units and the quality of workmanship involved is second to none.

What a transformation!. The end result was truly amazing. Something so lifeless has now turned into the kitchen of our dreams. We are delighted and extremely grateful for everything Modern Living has done for us and have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his team to anyone thinking of any renovations in the home.

Ray & Shane

John & Christine

We currently live in the US and needed someone that we could rely upon to refurbish our holiday let home in England. Mark is a terrific project manager, very customer-focused, a gentleman, and a joy to work with.
He is extremely knowledgeable and came up with practical and attractive design solutions. Nothing was too much trouble, and he kept us involved in all the details throughout the whole project to make sure that we were happy with the end result. The bespoke woodwork is particularly impressive.
His team were very polite and helpful. We would definitely work with Mark/Modern Living again.”

John and Christine

Josie & Jan

"Modern Living was absolutely the right choice for us.
Mark sees the bigger picture and has great flair for design and attention to detail.
He is able to interpret the needs of the client and then add practicality and style. Both Mark and Nick oversaw the day to day running of the project with a keen eye for the logistics along every step of the way, ensuring that no time was wasted or lost.
Each person involved in the project was skilled and expert in their particular field of work. They were pleasant and considerate, which is important when they are in your house while you are trying to cope with the day-to-day stresses of not having a kitchen and experiencing continuous disruption.

Thanks to Moder Living we now have a kitchen/diner to be proud of. It suits the house, is a massive improvement and a pleasure to work and live in."

Josie and Jan

Steve & Judy

Dear Mark,

What can we say, our newly refurbished kitchen is truly exceptional, never thought it could possibly end up looking this good! Steve and I cannot thank you and your team enough for brightening up our mornings, breakfasts are a whole new experience now!
Please pass on our huge thanks to Tony, Tom for the carpentry & fitting, Helen for the weeks precise in-situ painting that was required, and special thanks to 'Little Rob' who so very kindly worked at the weekend to complete the 'piece de resistance' our built in oak wine rack that everyone says looks simply stunning - oh and we nearly forgot the ideas and project management of your goodself!
We would also like to mention that all of these works were carried out extremely professionally and tidily, no mess to clear up each evening, which makes a change nowadays.
Mark, you and your team have done a fabulous job and we will recommend Modern Living time & time again.
Many Thanks To You All. Kind Regards, Steve & Judy

Peter & Carol

Dear Mark & Nick,

We would like to thank you and the Modern Living team of craftsmen for the remodelling and complete transformation of our new and superb bespoke kitchen.
From the very first visit to your Babdown showroom where Nick met with us and showed us your manufacturing capability to the completion day prior to a family special event, the whole process was managed with total professionalism from start to finish in just 12 weeks.
Prior to meeting Modern Living we had received several kitchen designs - none of which really inspired us, or seemed ‘good value for money' - the day after our visit to Babdown Airfield Mark arrived at our house to discuss our project ideas. What a breath of fresh air this visit was, Mark's enthusiasm, passion and skills for home re-modelling shone through and we knew immediately the design and project management of our new kitchen was in a safe and very experienced pair of hands with Modern Living.
“Wow, what an amazing kitchen” is the first comment said now many times by our family and friends on first sight of our new contemporary kitchen/diner, the overall design concept, usefulness of the space available and the build of the cabinetry is real ‘quality' with a capital Q.
Every aspect of the work undertaken was discussed with us in some detail at daily site meetings, ensuring that nothing was missed and all of their skilled tradespeople were ‘on the same page'.
We are simply delighted and have no hesitation in recommending Modern Living to anyone looking for ‘peace of mind' in having major home improvement work ‘Project Managed' from start to finish by an expert company, without the hassle of trying to manage numerous tradesmen and materials from ‘day to day'. The small premium paid for this was well worth it.

Thank you for your professionalism in delivering a product that not only looks stunning but is highly practical for a kitchen design, you have really transformed our home for the better.

Peter & Carol

Mike & Juile

To Mark & Helen
Wow ! what can I say..... except thank you for all your superb hard work in transforming our kitchen,
we truly love it.
Thank you too for your efficiency and patience ..... we definitely couldn't have achieved our dreams without you !
Best wishes. Julie and Mike


Hi Mark
Many thanks, and for your as-ever excellent service.
Much appreciated.
The kitchen is looking and working as well as the day it went in - all credit to your team's craftsmanship.

Best wishes


Maggie & James

To Mark and his team at Modern Living,

We were so pleased that we followed a friend's recommendation and asked Mark and his team at Modern Living to replace our downstairs floor tiles. From our initial discussions, Mark has managed the whole process magnificently and his team were great, helpful and pleasant as they worked to transform our downstairs with a new floor and underfloor heating. The end result was magnificent!! The place has been transformed; our house is now warmer and much more welcoming, more practical and a much more pleasant space to relax in.
So a big thank you to all for this transformation!!
Maggy and James

James & Joe

Dear Mark,

Just a message to say thank you for producing a beautiful kitchen.
Jo and I have sat down with a glass of wine just admiring it all and what good workmanship has gone into this project. Please pass these comments to all involved.
Looking forward to phase 2!!

Thanks James and Jogy

Colin & Sue

Dear Mark,

As we embarked on the extension to our home, it was imperative that we chose a company that empathised with the character of the existing building, and we wanted the Kitchen to look as though it had been there forever.
You never ceased to amaze us with your attention to detail, support, patience and creative advice along the way. You fulfilled all of our expectations and we believe the result is truly spectacular'

Mr & Mrs Dennis OBE

Mr & Mrs Freeman

Dear Mark,

We would like to place on record our thanks to you and your team for the wonderful work they did on the remodelling of our home, which although only 10 years old needed a complete makeover.

As we were not yet living there, we were searching for an organisation to oversee the project for us. You fitted the bill exactly. We had looked around at other
companies offering refurbishment but we were not very impressed, that is until we met you and we knew we were in the hands of a true professional.
We would recommend you without hesitation. All your staff were brilliant - it would not be fair to single out any one of them - they were all very skilled, friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Please pass on our thanks to everyone, we are thrilled with the result.

Mr & Mrs Freemand

Jenny & Paul

Dear Mark,
We have had a stunning transformation of our kitchen. Magically more space has been created with bespoke storage and a real appreciation of how the kitchen is used as the heart of the house.
All the tradesmen involved were as un-intrusive as possible and did a fine job.
Thank you !!!!!
Jenny and Paul

Mr & Mrs Holder

Dear Mark,

After visiting several kitchen shops and other outlets, we made an appointment for you to come and give us a quote.
We were expecting yet another salesman offering to replace our boxes with newer boxes and maybe the odd up to date gizmo.
How wrong can you be. Your vision bowled us over and your enthusiasm was a breath of fresh air!
All thoughts of moving house were quickly dispelled, instead, the ground floor was to be completely changed and used to its full potential, all this for the fraction of the cost of moving. The whole project, completed by your company has given our house the WOW factor that we wouldn't have thought possible.
Thank you for the skill and professionalism

Mr & Mrs Holder

Terry & Zoe

Dear Mark,
Could you pass on a big thank you to everyone involved with our project so far.
We were both surprised at how smoothly and quickly the operation was carried out despite the obvious restrictions and constraints. Least of all me pointing a camera at them!
They are a credit to your company. Pat yourselves on the back. Terry and Zoe

Mr & Mrs Ranger

Dear Mark,
You were with us for just over a year, having redecorated our bathrooms and remodelled our old garage into a new kitchen. The pre-existing kitchen was converted into a new dining room and they also built a new double garage on our lawn. The interior work including our new oak kitchen was to the highest standard.
Mark was very enthusiastic about his work and his passion for perfection was evident from the time we first met. The workman began on time and worked diligently and consistently with no significant absence throughout their time with us, weather permitting.
I was impressed by the quality of their work and in particular the regular visits by Mark to ensure we were happy with progress.
I would have no hesitation in using Modern Living again (and have done so recently!) and would highly recommend Mark and his team for their quality of work. The small premium that we paid in comparison to other quotes was definitely worth it for the peace of mind in such a large project.
Mr & Mrs Ranger

Mr Mills

Dear Mark, For me the outstanding feature of your service is the 'one-stop shop' element.
What I wanted for my new kitchen was someone to whom I could give the keys, they do the whole job and give me the keys back when all was finished.

That's what you did for me and I am so pleased with the end result.
With any job like the one I have had done, there are 3 important words - Design, Quality and Workmanship.

I had various ideas for improving my home, but in terms of Design, no one thought laterally until you came along. Thinking outside of the box you came up with the idea of moving the kitchen into the dining room and vice-versa and this has resulted in much better use of space and a better balance to the house as a whole.

The Workmanship on the whole project has been second to none. The attention to detail was superb.
Of those 3 words 'Quality' is the most important and that's the word I would say best describes you
Mr Mills

Mr & Mrs White

Dear Mark,

Embarking on a new kitchen was a major financial commitment, so it was important to choose a company which delivers and we could trust.
You proved to be truly refreshing in their approach to our extension and new kitchen.
Communication was always excellent. The whole team were professional, reliable and went the extra mile in helping us achieve a stunning result which was truly bespoke.

We are delighted with our new kitchen and would not hesitate to recommend you

Mr & Mrs White


Dear Mark,

We would like to thank all of the team following the completion of work at our home. From the initial concept meeting through to completion.

We can't fault the professionalism and commitment shown by all to meet both our exacting requirements and timelines. The kitchen and bathrooms are beautifully finished and a testament to the standards set by all the team in producing a quality design and finished product. Thank you

Mr Warby

Keith & Judith

Can't praise Mark and his team too highly! Our tired 1980s house has been transformed into a contemporary home that makes great use of light and space.
We emptied our downstairs into storage and moved out whilst the bulk of the work took place. We were happy to allow Mark and the team access to the house, and they took good care of it. The team were great to work with – professional, helpful and cheerful. The quality of their work can't be faulted, with close attention to detail and a high finish. They always thought about what they did from the customer's perspective.
Mark kept to his quoted fixed costs, and the only additions were extras we commissioned. Nick's financial statements and invoices were detailed and kept up to date.
We started with some ideas for remodelling, and Mark's stimulation and enthusiasm opened our eyes to other possibilities. We had regular meetings to agree a detailed spec, which forced us to reach design decisions and then enabled the team to make good progress.
We knew we would want to add to and refine the spec along the way, so it was essential that we could work interactively with our builder. A big reason for our choice of Modern Living was that we felt comfortable having Mark as the Project Manager. He was responsive and sympathetic to our requests (even our e-mails from abroad or in the middle of the night!). He was in charge of both the big picture and the detail, and always made us feel that the most important point was that we, the customer, got what we wanted, giving his professional guidance and steer on options without imposing decisions on us.
Mark‘s resourcefulness and cheerful unflappability came to the fore when coming across the unexpected (such as discovering that the floor levels in adjacent rooms were different)! Even more, our works began just as the UK entered coronavirus lockdown, and Mark and his team did wonders to maintain workers and supplies (including queueing outside suppliers at 0700!) and to keep to timescale as far as possible.
Thank you very much!

Keith & Judith

Mr & Mrs Patrick

Dear Mark,
As with our first kitchen from you, the care and attention to detail in the design and fitting of our kitchen has been perfect.
Everything went smoothly despite changes along the way and nothing seemed too much trouble to change.
Your advice has proved to be correct on more than one occasion and the final product looks stunning, is extremely well built and works brilliantly. Thank you again for a job well done.

Mr & Mrs Patrick


We recently employed Modern Living as the main contractor on what started out to be a restaurant refurbishment

Nick and the team were quick to turn around quotes and adapted quickly as the project turned into the whole hotel.
After 3 weeks of commencing the scope of the works had trebled however this was no issue. The guys at Modern Living thought of every detail working closely with our design team.

The finished look is absolutely fantastic !
I would not hesitate to recommend Modern Living as a professional contractor who genuinely cares about the product they are delivering.
We are already planning the next projects with Modern Living as our construction partner
