“You have given us such a special place to gather as a family whether that’s making a cuppa, baking or cooking the evening meal. We all just love to be in the kitchen ... Our kitchen is such a happy place.”
A and G, East Horsley, Surrey
This review made our day. We feel so lucky to be able to make furniture that we know will be enjoyed for generations…to think of all the special birthdays, summer BBQs, anniversaries as well as the day-to-day breakfasts, homework sessions and family meals. We are a family business and going the extra mile is important to us.
Creating your kitchen is the start of a relationship - as your requirements change over time, we can work with you to help your kitchen evolve with you and your family.
Your kitchen will often be the heart of your home. Over time, bumps and knocks can happen. Our kitchens are extremely tough, but if something needs repair, we will be on hand to fix it. Wood is reasonably simple for us to fix - dents, chips and scratches can be sanded down, oiled or filled. In rare instances if the damage is significant the wood can be replaced, to restore your Shere Kitchen to its original beauty.
In our own small way, we’re trying to do our bit to help look after our local area – where we are so lucky to live, work and raise our children.
Our apprentice Tom is an absolute gem. He makes Bug Hotels from the off-cuts. It’s a really lovely project inspired by The Surrey Hills Enterprises who encourage us to think about what we can do to help our local community and environment. Tom makes the luxury bug homes and then we find a lovely home for them and invite local school children to come and fill it with sticks and wood. The kids always make it so much fun, finding creepy crawlies to put into the new home, making themselves crowns from daisy’s or sticky weed, asking a gazillion questions and rolling down the hills.
We plant a tree for every kitchen we make. We always plant in the winter so the trees are ‘asleep’ and have the best chance of settling in. We’ll invite you to come and plant your tree with us, but if it’s not your thing we’ll send you a photo of us in our wellies.
“We pride ourselves on sustainability whether it be in the planting of a tree at Clandon nature reserve for every kitchen we make, or in the sourcing of wood or materials – where possible - locally. We wrap our cabinetry in blankets and not plastic during transportation and we donate our off cuts to a local Design Technology college ”
