The Team

Did we mention….

We were very happy to be awarded Best of Service 2015 by the lovely team over at Houzz this year.

We love meeting and working with all of our customers as well as creating their ideal home.

We’re all booked up now for 2015 but we are already having a great time here at the mill planning 2016’s new kitchens. From cosy country cottages to chic city pads there’s nothing like a bit of variety and our – team relish the challenge.

If your planning on embarking on a new project next year then why not give us a call.

Off to pastures new…

It’s quite a sad time for us here in The Old Steam Mill as we have to wave goodbye to our brilliant workshop guru James. James walked in here one year ago looking for a job and we snapped him up there and then. Visiting the U.K with his lovely fiance Mel the pair had chosen Brighton to live for their year-long overseas experience.

It has been a real pleasure working with James and he will certainly be missed amongst the team. It was quite a regular occurrence that we would find him in the workshop over the weekend creating some wonderful piece of furniture, he even hand crafted our loo roll holder from solid oak… a must in any wood workshop!

 They popped in to give us all a beautiful Bonsai tree for the office. Thank you guys, we promise to take good care of it.


Sadly all good things must come to an end and we wish you both all the very best in your new life together back in New Zealand. Make sure you send us plenty of wedding photos come the spring!

Many hands make light work.

We are very lucky to have a fantastic team of talented people busy at work here in The Old Steam Mill. We have been on the hunt for lovely skilled people to join our ever-growing team and we have certainly been very lucky in finding some gems!

We really do value the creative values our designers, joiners, finishers, painters, finishers and installers all share and everyone here knows our individual manufacturing process from start to finish. We love it when our clients come and visit their new kitchen in production here in our West Sussex mill and meet the men and women who put their time and attention into each handcrafted kitchenphoto 1

We quite often ask our designers to try finishing or our painters to spend a day in the workshop so each member of our team has a full understanding of our kitchens construction as well as the time and attention to detail required in each and every stage.
