Transformation of an Apartment in Bendinat by Justine Knox

Colour of the Year 2018

Justine's last 2017 project was a beautiful apartment in Bendinat. It underwent a big renovation. We knocked down walls, rewired and replumbed, added a new kitchen, a new bathroom, underfloor heating throughout, new wardrobes and changed all the doors in the house. We then painted and decorated and changed the lighting. Decided on a colour scheme with the clients and added furniture, soft furnishings and accesorized to finish it off.  

The end result was a up-to-date contemporary apartment, perfect for their holidays in Mallorca and, of course, some very happy clients! Here are some before and after pictures:

The Best Outdoor Furniture for Mallorca

Are you looking for the best outdoor furniture for your home in Mallorca? Discover what our furniture store in Mallorca can offer. 

Knox Design have been selling outdoor furniture in Mallorca for over 15 years and we specialize in offering the best options for all tastes and styles.

Owning a home or holiday home in Mallorca is a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of our great climate and we strongly recommend that you make the most of your outdoor spaces and furnish them accordingly.

Garden furniture choices include, Metal, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Natural Rattan, Synthetic Weaves, Batyline, Teak and many more options all suitable for outdoors. Make sure to look at all the options available and their care as some are more maintenance friendly than others. So if you don’t want to be a slave to your furniture we would recommend going for Aluminium or Synthetic weave models.Even the highest grade of Stainless Steel needs cleaning and protecting to avoid oxidization.

We personally love Teak furniture, however if you don’t adore the grey effect of leaving it to do its own thing you will need to clean and oil it at least twice a year so keep this in mind when deciding which furniture to chose.

We find that some of our clients overlook storage of cushions for their outdoor furniture leading to either unnecessary stains and damage of them or storage that is so difficult they often miss out on a sunny winter afternoon as its too much hassle to get them out. At Knox Design we can offer covers for your furniture or storage boxes to solve this issue. 

As well as outdoor furniture we also offer a range of BBQ´s, Hot tubs, Sun shades, Outdoor Lights, Hammocks, Planters and much more..

Pay a visit to our furniture store in Santa Ponsa Mallorca and discuss your needs with our friendly team whilst browsing our vast selection of outdoor and indoor furniture and accessories. If you need help to plan your outdoor space you can book a consultation visit to your home to help you make the right decisions.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Stressless Project management in Mallorca

The importance of hiring qualified tradesmen.

 

When we are designing your dream home we ensure to give it the best attention that it deserves. Not only do we install the best features and accessories but we also ensure that we hire qualified and experienced tradesmen.

Building and renovations can be difficult and extremely stressful. To ease the pressure we have put together a team of qualified tradesmen so that the job goes as smoothly as possible and they are all used to working together and helping each other. Through experience we have found that this not only ensures good quality workmanship but also speeds up the whole process  without delays of  "I was waiting for the electrician to finish his part before i could do mine". 

The work of the tradesmen will reflect in the quality of your home and they are always kept busy working on our projects throughout the year and being availible should any repairs or issues arise in the future. 

Knox design has been Project managing for over 15 years and our attention to detail and professionalism is a high priority.

Just ask our clients.

 

Project Management

Delivering your project on time, to cost and to the highest quality in an efficient manner and with minimal disruptions to your day-to-day life is what we do at Knox Design.

Between concept and completion, there’s a lot of activity taking place that needs to be tightly managed so that your project runs smoothly and results in a successful outcome.

The key to making sure everything comes together is a project management approach that is rigid when it needs to be but flexible enough to adapt to unexpected events. Trust us there is always something.

Attention to detail is everything.

Through regular site meetings, proper co-ordination of product orders, managing tradespeople and effective troubleshooting of any issues that may arise during your interior design project, we ensure an on time and on budget outcome.

  • Overall project coordination and planning with specific focus on time, cost and quality.
  • Organising, scheduling and checking deliveries of materials (kitchen, bathroom fittings, flooring etc)
  • Organising and managing the schedule of work—ensuring the right people are on site in the right order and minimising stress.
  • Sourcing furniture, appliances, tradespeople, and obtaining estimates for work you want done. This can include, Tel installation, pest control etc.
  • Manage tradespeople (builders, specialist kitchen and bathroom fitters, gardeners etc).
  • Being on site regularly to oversee and manage tradespeople and make sure they are doing what was in the plan.
  • Final Handover followed by snagging.
