We say our Bespoke kitchens start from £30,000 to include worktops and appliances for smaller spaces.
In addition we can offer a delivery only or installation service package which includes final measures and hand-painting.
Our plywood and slab door kitchens start from £20,000 .
Most of the kitchens you see on our website are usually between £45,000-£85,000.
Our Bespoke and Concept Kitchens come with a 30 year warranty when we install.
If you choose to self-install, your kitchen will have a 10 year guarantee.
Clients will need to register their appliances for warranties.
Bespoke means that it is designed and built to fit perfectly and to suit you and your home. Each cabinet is designed and manufactured uniquely to meet your needs and make best use of space. Our talented designers will come up with something uniquely you and we will make each cabinet exactly the right size to fit perfectly in the space it was designed for.
A typical project takes around 4-6 weeks from the point that we begin building your kitchen to when we begin our installation. The design process prior to this depends on your specifications and revisions required.
The installation itself will take 1 week but if you have natural stone or concrete worktops then we will return 2 weeks later to install the worktops. Please be aware that in busy period, our lead times can reach up to 6 months, so please do get in touch early on in the process.
As a standard, we colour match using a water-based paint for a more robust and durable finish. We utilise water-based, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints which are eco-friendly and have a low odour. We spray one coat of primer with two coats of paint and hand paint our Bespoke Kitchens upon fitting.
Yes. During the design process we’ll discuss your appliance needs, you can stipulate your exact specifications or we can suggest ideas based on your design and kitchen. When you work with us, we’ll give you exclusive access to better pricing on appliances (as well as suggest the perfect appliances for your needs – appliance integration really is key to a well-designed kitchen).
We can supply the same high quality cabinets for you to install, we understand sometimes you have builders on site or trusted installers, or are a little further afield and would like to use someone local.
You can also collect to remove delivery costs.
We provide full drawings for your builder to work from, along with videos of how we would recommend your kitchen to be installed, with tricks and tips on the tricky bits! We would always advise for tradespeople to install your kitchen and not DIY to ensure the best installation to ensure that your kitchen lasts and looks great!
We love a challenge. We believe that if you’re looking to commission a bespoke kitchen it should be exactly that. It should be bespoke to your needs, your lifestyle and your home.
Do you live in an traditional home but would like a cutting-edge modern look that blends in with the wonky flagstones? We can design, craft and install beautiful furniture that perfectly fits your brief. Our design team will work directly with you to grow your ideas from your mind to reality in a wholly sustainable way.
We pride ourselves on our accommodating service, our highly flexible nature and a design service that is tailored to you, including remote consultations if you require. We can meet at a time to suit you and as much as you require until you are completely satisfied and thrilled with your design.
We’re a design house, so we create beautiful kitchens that aren’t limited by specific styles. That said, we often find our clients requesting one of three different kitchens styles:
- Shaker – There is an inset panel on the front of the cabinet doors which are set within a frame
- Flat Panel – The cabinet doors have a flat front panel. They usually sit within a frame, however we can do without in our Bespoke service
- Plywood – Exposed edge plywood kitchens with painted doors and a varnished plywood edge left exposed for a scandinavian touch.
- Overlay – For a slab door look sitting outside of the frame
- Reclaimed Wood / Veneered Wood – As part of our Concept range, starting from £50+
- Molding – Shaker style with intricate beading
Yes. We offer exposed plywood cabinets within a plywood frame.
Our plywood kitchens are made from sustainably sourced plywood and showcase the end grains as a frame around the door.
Doors can be painted or a laminate such as Fenix.
A playful Scandinavian style that won’t date.
The most sustainable kitchen worktop that we offer is oak, which can be stained to the colour of your choice. We also offer stainless steel, copper, granite, corian, durat, richlite and various stones.
We use solid wood for all of our kitchens. The carcasses are made of birch plywood and the doors and frames are made of solid oak, birch, tulip wood, medite or plywood dependant on which style you choose.
We only use timber and sheet materials which are deemed to be ethical and which carry certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) who promote sustainably managed forests worldwide. We do not use any tropical hardwoods.Through our partnership with the Avon Needs Trees we are helping to replant the UK’s native woodland and prevent any further loss of this ancient resource. The Sustainable Kitchens tree dedication scheme ensures the planting and maintaining of trees with every kitchen we make.
Because it’s so light and airy, photographers love to use our space. So far, we’ve hosted photoshoots for:
- Recipe and Cookbook product and production shots
- Cutlery and Crockery
- Cookery Product launches
- Homeware products
Cookery It probably won’t surprise you that our showroom, as a fully-functioning kitchen, is often used for cookery events. Recipe demonstrations, tasting sessions and product launches all benefit from the boost of being hosted in such a high-quality space. If you’re hosting an event and wondering about hiring a chef, we’ll be able to point you in the right direction. Bristol has no shortage of amazing chefs and we frequently work with the best of them. If you don’t see what you need there, drop us a line: we should be able to sort that for you. Evening Events We’ll happily host an out-of-hours event for you and your clients. Previous events that we’ve hosted include:
