A specification to be proud of: Your new kitchen

Here at Thirteen Homes, we believe in seeing things differently. Our homes offer a well-considered design and a practicality that just makes life better and a lot of what we offer as standard would usually be considered an upgrade, that’s why we are extremely proud that our homes offer a different way.

Over the coming weeks we are going to be sharing with you further details about our home specification; what exactly you get included, what upgrade options you will be offered and which suppliers we are using.

Today we are going to explore your new kitchen!
