Midweek Blues…

Blue, we love blue. No midweek blues here in the mill today however as we are all busy admiring the new ‘Blue’ collection from our Friends at The Little Green Company. We always finish our cabinetry and other hand painted furniture with Little Greene’s wonderful paint – so it’s always exciting when they release more shades.

With 21 hues in the collection blue fans have plenty to choose from.

Here’s a few of the new collection’s shots, all available to view over at

Shades of Grey…

Grey… by far the most popular colour choice for 2015 so far.

Perhaps is the book or film that’s pushed grey into the spotlight (I have to admit I haven’t had much to do with either although I presume that it’s not a colour consultation guide!) but grey has certainly been fantastically popular over the last year or so.

I can certainly see why. Both timeless and classic grey can offer depth and drama to any room.

The Little Greene Company have responded to the popularity of grey by introducing their own ‘Grey’ collection. A whole booklet dedicated to the shade and there’s certainly something for everyone.

The Little Greene Companies ‘Grey’ Collection

French Grey ‘113’ from The Little Greene Company has been a solid favorite so far as it is the perfect balance between being warm and cool and subtly enough to work on a large-scale. We are currently installing a beautiful kitchen in three glorious and bold shades of grey and even black. Needless to say we can’t wait to take some shots when we’re all done and dusted!

Thinking about a new kitchen next year?

We have had such a busy year this year and we have been extremely lucky to have worked with lots of lovely people to create their perfect new kitchen. We are now taking bookings for installations in January 2016 – so if you were considering contacting us for your new kitchen new year please do get in touch.

We are ever expanding our team and as a result slowly increasing the number of kitchens we make per year. Our main concern is ensuring that each of our customers receive the high level of service we pride ourselves on – personable, in-depth and supportive throughout every stage of the process.

We positively encourage our customers to come and see their kitchen being handmade and finished in our Mill workshop. We are very proud of our team, processes and responsibly sourced materials and love the opportunity to show them off!

If you’re seeking a beautifully handmade new kitchen in the new year then give our friendly designers a call for a complimentary design and quotation.

Victorian Subway Style

We absolutely love these images sent over to us from a recent customer. This beautiful kitchen extension in Surrey offered an amazing space with dramatic high ceilings, something that our clients were really keen to take full advantage of and really emphasise. Crisp, clean subway tiles really offer a classic vintage feel to this impressive room.

The cabinetry is painted in The Little Greene Companies Gauze- Dark and offers a lovely cool finish perfectly paired with smart polished chrome cup and knob handles and a traditional bead to frame.

This kitchen is testament to picking a couple of key elements and really sticking to your guns. The overall effect is simple, clean and calming. We can’t wait to come and take some more shots soon.

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

Here is the lovely Rachel, busy hand painting our doors.

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.
