Autumn Savings

I don’t know about you, but I always think that Autumn is the perfect time to nest at home, get cosy and cook big hearty meals for family and friends. It’s the perfect time to begin to enjoy cooking again, rustling up hearty stews and warming casseroles.autumn_home_main

It’s also a great opportunity to start to consider your kitchen in the run up to Christmas. Particularly if you are planning a new one sometime soon, take this time to really think about how you use the space and what you need to make the experience a real pleasure.

With that in mind we thought that we might offer you Half Price installation as an early christmas present!

Thinking about a new kitchen next year?

blog2016booking

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.

Revisiting a Beautiful Barn Conversion

We have just had the pleasure of visiting one of our previous customers and their kitchen. One year in and they have really grown into their new barn extension, using soft colours to bring plenty of light into the room and highlighting the original old rustic beams with industrial pieces such as their stained oak and metal bar stools.

We love revisiting our customers and taking some photos of their kitchen once they have had time to settle into their new home. We often bring a big box or two full of props to dress the kitchens for photo-shoots. But this time we hardly brought anything out as it was already so perfectly finished already. Just a few pieces from the cupboards, a couple of figs and a handful of turnips sufficed.

This happy customer picked a lovely soft off-white shade to offer a warm feel to this large room. The Little Greene Companies’ Tusk worked perfectly to throw light around the room without being cold or too contemporary.

They also picked out some gorgeous pewter handles to compliment and finish the cabinetry. These work wonders in marrying the industrial elements together within the room.

We can’t wait to pop by and visit again sometime 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.
