All day on Friday 24th March we ran a pop up cafe, bake sale and a Live Bake Off Competition for Red Nose Day this year. Our brave contestants, Lucy and Daniel Holt from RAF Wittering 'baked their aprons off' over the course of 1 hour and the results were judged by the Mayor and Mayoress of Worcester - Paul and Lynn Denham.
All the action, pictures and video, can be found on our facebook page:

Our most popular month here at Henley McKay is historically, July. Why?  Because some of our clients choose to go away on holiday whilst we are working on their house. While all of the messy work is being done - they can go away and enjoy a bit of sunshine (or snow!)?

​Save yourself time and hassle by booking your kitchen installation early, to coincide with your holiday. But hurry, so we can book our fitters in at the date to suit you.

Let us work, while you Play!
We are accredited by BiKBBI - the only government sanctioned professional body for Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom installers and also by WHICH? Trusted Traders. This means we adhere to strict moral, ethical and profesional standards - so you know you can trust us in your home.

  • Tackle understairs clutter. Often this is the place where things live, when there is no where else for them to go. Consider covering the area with fitted doors, so that the mess is hidden away, use pull out drawers for ease of access,or putting in shelves to offer more usable storage. 
  • Streamline your wardrobes. Make your wardrobes organised and stylish again by sorting out items into 3 piles - to go, to repair, and to wear. Don't be afraid of those bad purchases, take them to a charity shop where someone else may love them! 
Give your wardrobe a New Year Detox - clear out and make room!
  • Do some quick revamps. Give your home a refresh with easy ideas like painting a feature wall, or changing the colour of your kitchen island. Minimum effort, maximum impact!
