All about Kitchens by YOU
Hi, my name’s Russell Bedford and welcome to my website.
I’ve been installing kitchens for over 20 years and have worked for the majority of the “big names” you may be more familiar with.
I started my career straight from school, installing kitchens while doing a carpentry apprenticeship, and carrying out electrical work under supervision. My boss was a local guy who had over 35 years’ experience and he was a great mentor.
After 7 years, aged 23, I decided to set up my own business and, once self-employed, I set about getting my own electrical qualifications to further the skills I could offer my customers.
I have made sure that I have all the relevant insurance and training in place to ensure that my installations go smoothly and with all the correct paperwork issued, including:
- Public liability insurance
- Disclosure and barring service
- Asbestos awareness training
- NICeic Approved contractor
- Gas safe certification
Other accreditations that I have gained over my career include:
- Miai worktop approved installer
- Maxtop worktop approved installer
- Alusplash accredited installer
Over the years installing for the big companies I began to see that things could be done better and I wanted more for my customers. I believe that by keeping supply and installation separate some of the big companies let us down.
I have set up Kitchens by You to improve the service I can bring to customers. I can now provide a new and better experience to you by supplying and installing new kitchens in house, with one point of call – Me! I hope that I can be of service to you!
