Pamela contacted us to assist with bulk heads design and installation at her residence in Olivedale as part of her project to completely redo her kitchen.
She already had a clear picture in mind of how she wanted her kitchen to look but asked us to assist with the bulk heads to ensure that it is aesthetically suitable for her vision.
She desired to accentuate the kitchen and also have a lighting solution not only impress but also give a atmosphere of sophistication whilst still creating a relaxing and conducive environment with a bulk heads design.
Pamela replaced all the kitchen cupboard and appliances. We had to fix the bulk heads frame directly to the slab and compensate for a slight deviation in the slab level.
The final design was a rectangular bulk heads with a recessed center which also allows for the option to fit pendulum lights, the drop from the ceiling to the bottom edge was carefully planned to fit in with the height and with of the room. Too little or too much of a drop is aesthetically displeasing.
The bulk heads looks amazing and compliments the surrounding areas amazingly. Pamela did an amazing job with the combination of fixtures and fittings.
The structure of the bulk heads was created from galvanized main tees and cross tees as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with wafer tech screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality.After the bulk heads structure was completed 9.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used and corners trimmed with corner beads. Care needs to be taken that this done properly as a corner bead fitted a slight bit out of position will have a disastrous effect on the final aesthetic look.
After all of the above was completed two coats of Rhinolite was applied to the bulk heads and skimmed to a smooth flawless finish. Toni-Anne and her team then applied paint and fitted LED strips lights and pendulum lights.Both the bulkhead for the boardroom and meeting room was constructed and finished in only 3 days, which in it self is mammoth of a task not only to complete in 3 days, but also to do with detail and perfection.Well done to the team!!!
