We feel very lucky to have found Shere Kitchens. Despite the extremely challenging conditions of the last few months, they have installed and delivered a beautiful kitchen for us. Their designs were excellent, the quality is superb and nothing has been too much trouble the whole way through the process. The whole service really is bespoke, and very good value for money. From the very beginning they have listened to everything we wanted and have made great suggestions on how to achieve it. It has been an extremely positive experience working with them and we would thoroughly recommend them.
Having started a complete refurbishment of our kitchen, involving major structural work to increase its size, we began the search for a kitchen company to design, supply and install new cupboards and cabinets. We contacted a number of national and local companies before we came across Shere Kitchens’ website, following which we decided to visit their workshop one Saturday morning. There we were warmly welcomed by Andy and Mike, who explained their approach and proudly showed us some of their work in progress. We were instantly impressed by their skills and enthusiasm and the fact that, not being limited to standard unit sizing, they would be able to provide an entirely bespoke and hand-built product. We asked them to visit us and come up with a design and costing and, to cut a long story short, we are now the proud owners of a wonderful new kitchen with which we could not be more pleased. In addition to integrated Shaker-style cupboards and cabinets and a free-standing larder cupboard, Andy built a solid oak L-shaped bench, a uniquely-shaped matching table with an oak base and quartz top and a pair of solid tulip wood doors with glazed panels through which we now enter the new kitchen from our hallway. Mike and Andy, and their apprentice Tom, were always a pleasure to deal with throughout the process and patiently and calmly handled our numerous questions and requests for minor design changes. We would not hesitate to recommend Shere Kitchens to anyone seeking a high quality kitchen, built by craftsmen who take pride in their product, pay great attention to detail and provide a very high level of service while offering excellent value for money.
We are delighted with our beautiful handmade kitchen. It has created a wonderful heart to our new home.
Shere Kitchens were recommended by a neighbour, who said they were just the nicest guys. We chose them because they were a local company, and we loved the fact that we could see where our kitchen was being created, and speak with the guys who were making it. No levels of sales people to negotiate! And we were also won over by their ethos of planting a tree for each kitchen they made.
They were an absolute delight to work with throughout the entire process. Nothing was ever a problem or too much effort, and there were no hidden extra costs. Mike and Andy were always on hand or prompt to respond and chat through details, and were incredibly patient and helpful with final decisions. The finished result is beautifully crafted and is all we hoped for.
We would highly recommend Shere Kitchens, because they care about their work and craftsmanship. Satisfied happy clients and the environment.
Dear Andy, Mike and the rest of the Shere Kitchens Team.
We just wanted to say a very heartfelt thank you for taking our ideas on paper and putting them into reality! You have given us such a special place to gather as a family whether that’s making a cuppa, baking or just cooking the evening meal. We all just love to be in the kitchen ... even Zach, age 9 now, made dinner last night!! Our kitchen is such a happy place and I know part of that stems from your incredible craftsmanship, your love of cabinetry and attention to detail. I remember seeing my larder cupboard and thinking “it’s so wrong to paint this beautiful wood!” We cannot wish you well enough as you grow your company ... we love to recommend you as we know what a pleasure awaits your clients!
Much love Anji, Graham, Hannah and Zach.
We commissioned Shere Kitchens via a highly regarded recommendation. It was a good feeling to be working with local kitchen makers using locally sourced timber and who had a sustainable vision of replanting trees in a nearby conservation area, enabling rare butterflies only living on those specific trees to thrive into the future - we even helped plant a tree. From the outset, Mike and Andy listened to what we required in a hand-built kitchen: everything would fit like a glove (no compromises with set sizes of cabinets and drawers). Throughout the process we were kept involved every step of the way, including design challenges and solutions, helpful suggestions resulting in decisions reached as a partnership - a very satisfying customer experience! Shere Kitchens have delivered on a beautiful, solid, hand-built kitchen which is everything we imagined it would be and more - stylish with a wow factor all round! Our grateful thanks to Ella in the office for responding so very promptly to our e-mails and messages, liaising with Andy and Mike every step of the way. Additional thanks to Mike for his professionalism and patience when installing our kitchen during an extremely busy build. We are delighted with our lovely new kitchen and would highly recommend Shere Kitchens to make yours.
I interviewed several kitchen companies and chose Shere Kitchens because they listened to what I wanted. Doing a great job obviously matters to them and they are keen, skilled and reliable. I'm thrilled with my new kitchen, delighted to give a personal reference to anyone who wants to get in touch. You won't be disappointed - the quality of their work is excellent and it was all done on time and to budget - impressive. I was lucky to find them and hope they enjoyed working here too. Onwards and upwards - good luck Andy, Mike and Ella.
Shere Kitchens created a stunning kitchen, a masterpiece. We worked together on the design to carefully consider our space and lifestyle, and they made it by hand just for us. That’s really special. Our new kitchen has become the real heart of our family home, we feel very lucky.
I had a client with exceptional taste who lives in a beautiful manor house in Surrey. I commissioned Andy to make a few bespoke contemporary items of furniture. Andy provided exactly what I wanted and my client was very happy. He is very hands-on and he just gets it – he is extremely competent and very passionate about what he does. I have always found him to be highly capable, nothing is a problem. Andy is one of the nicest people I have ever commissioned work to. I have worked with many high-end manufacturers and Andy stands out - he is not only very good face to face but he also delivers excellent results.
Our kitchen is wonderfully handmade and practical, exactly what we asked for. The guys were a joy to work with and delivered on time and within budget. If you want a bespoke kitchen, we highly recommend Andy and Mike at Shere Kitchens.
Always on time, professional, polite and tidy with excellent workmanship. I would definitely recommend.
True craftsmen who take a pride in their skill, and as a bonus are thoroughly pleasant. We are more than content to recommend.
Coveted by of all our friends and family - very high quality of workmanship, on time and to the agreed price. Great service from start to finish.
