Modernised Council Home Rooms Unveiled in Basildon

The new trends of interior design are spreading to all types of homes in the UK, and innovative features such as granite worktops are now characteristic for a host of new houses. In Basildon August was a month of unveiling of new kitchen and bathrooms, sleek additions to council houses in areas of the Basildon borough. The new service rooms, modernised and ready to welcome new residents, total 300 and more. The first ones, kitchens with shiny granite worktops and no less shiny bathrooms, have already been unveiled.

The Government headed initiative undertaken to introduce new standards with the Decent Homes programme was the initial culprit for the trend for modernisation which led to the rewarding results and made Basildon residents happy and eager for more innovative design scopes. It is increasingly mandatory to regard granite worktops, marble worktops, granite and marble baths and sinks not as luxuries that can be dispensed with but rather as staples which conform to modern design trends and add not only opulence but also convenience. Especially the convenience of granite worktops in kitchens with heir durability and ease of maintenance is leading to a soaring demand on the market.

So far, the number of homes refurbished and fitted with innovative granite worktops and granite and marble fixtures amounts to 308. The initiative is under development and will continue to yield results.

The council representatives unveiled some of the newly refurbished council home kitchens and bathrooms in an official manner in homes located in Shrubbery Close, Basildon. The Council’s Deputy Leader who also functions as a cabinet member responsible for housing expressed his satisfaction with the fact that the Basildon residents obtained the refurbished homes and overwhelmingly approve of the innovative kitchens and bathrooms, appreciating not only the appeal of new design, but the new kind of comfort and convenience they bring. He also shared the fact that the refurbishments in the unveiled kitchens and bathrooms such as granite worktops etc. are part of a larger investment contributed by the Basildon Council as part of the plan to improve a housing stock totalling more than 11,000, in accordance with modern design. All residents of Basildon expressed their eagerness to see more council houses refurbished in this way.

The Decent Homes Programme is certain to improve the conditions in a number of council homes and for a host of social housing tenants. The programme has already brought significant benefits not only in terms of modern kitchens with granite worktops, or innovatively shiny bathrooms, but also more opportunities in the form of tenant involvement. Employment opportunities have also widened thanks to the Decent Homes programme.

Naturally, there is more remaining to be done, but social housing tenants have already experienced the comprehensive results, and together with them many other people have taken advantage of the widened employment opportunities. The appropriate refurbishments together with the appropriate funding of housing are the formula for success and great value for money achieved to benefit tenants of modernly attractive council homes.
