Your Journey - Commissioning a Shere Kitchen

Creating Your Shere Kitchen

As bespoke cabinet makers all of our kitchens are different. Each kitchen is made to order, and so your journey with us is always unique. But all of our projects follow the same road map - Design, Craft, Install, Enjoy and Care.

One of the most important things is that you’ll work with Andy, Mike & Ella throughout the entire project. We work with you from the start, to develop your ideas all the way through your building work, to fitting the last handle on your cabinetry.

We believe commissioning a new kitchen should be a joy from start to finish.  


Designing collaboratively with you is really important to us. It means we can craft your kitchen to your specifications – we can work together to choose proportions, style, materials, colours and features.

We invite you to meet with us at the workshop (by appointment only). We’ll listen to what you want, which styles you like, the history of your property, the needs of your family, your vision and all the details you’ve been thinking about.

Then we’ll develop an estimate for your unique kitchen, detailing layout, style, key features, cost and timescales.


Your bespoke design is tailor made, hand-painted and finished in our own workshop to make sure it fits your unique space perfectly.

Our classical furniture-making techniques incorporate the features that you expect in outstanding cabinetry and joinery.

We are able to create any style of kitchen, larder cupboard, pantry or island unit to your bespoke dimensions and style requirements.

Your kitchen is made from the highest quality materials to ensure lasting quality and beauty.

You’ll be welcome to come and see your cabinetry being made.


We take as much care fitting our kitchens ourselves as we do in designing and handcrafting them.

Our whole team are acutely aware of the need for keeping stress and mess to a minimum in your home and will minimise the potential disruption often associated with building work.

The installation stage of the process is very exciting. Your cabinetry will be scribed and fitted perfectly.


Our kitchens are carefully crafted at our workshop and pretty tough, but if something needs fixing, we’re here if you need 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.

As we are cabinet makers we can add to your kitchen in future. If you extend your home, we can help you to reconfigure your kitchen furniture to fit your new space. Boot Room cabinetry, Islands, Larders and Prep Tables are popular additions.

Our apprentice Tom makes Bug Hotels from the off-cuts and we plant a tree to pay back for the wood we use in your kitchen, so you can enjoy that good feeling.


The first step is to design your Shere Kitchen

“Shere Kitchens were recommended by a neighbour, who said they were just the nicest guys … They were an absolute delight to work with throughout the entire process. Nothing was ever a problem or too much effort, and they were incredibly patient and helpful with final decisions.”
