Yves was traditionally trained and is a City & Guilds Carpenter with extensive experience within many other building trades. He has been developing and honing his skills over the last 16 years and as such, there’s little he doesn’t know about kitchens. From a young age Yves always pushed the boundaries, continually going outside of his comfort zone to learn new techniques – so when Yves’ started his own kitchen design and renovation business 11 years ago it was set to break the mould. Yves’s romance with kitchens was a fast development, as a carpenter Yves had been employed by many high end companies to be part of an array of challenging projects, but none he found as rewarding as renovating Kitchens. Starting his own business and niching himself to this market has allowed Yves to indulge in his creative side, merging knowledge in property renovation with passion for design and craftsmanship.

Yves’ covers a full range of services from a simple appliance changes or just new worktops, through to full scale kitchen renovations. Working with a team of specialist trades expects including Gas Safe engineers and NEIC registered electricians, ensuring that all work is carried out to the latest and safest regulations.

TV work

In 2010 one of Yves’ projects was seen by a TV producer who would create a fork in the road and send Yves’s career in a direction he had never considered. Yves was invited to be part of the ITV show ’60 Minute Make Over’ and he went on to become the resident carpenter and kitchen specialist for the show.

Yves’ ‘cheeky chappy’ personality and expertise attracted the attention of another television production company and in 2011 Yves was cast as the Kitchen Specialist for Channel 4’s ‘The Renovation Game’ which ran for 3 series. Alongside this Yves has presented kitchen installation Videos, has just finished fitting the kitchens on Linda Barker’s new show ‘Brand New House For 5k’ and is currently filming with Peter Andre for the all new ‘Peter Andre’s 60 Minute Make Over’.
