Bespoke, Real wood Kitchen


The owner of this beautiful 16th Century Cottage in Seer Green was known to our kitchen designer. She advised them that rather than buy an off the shelf kitchen for their budget, MPG Kitchens could design and build a bespoke handmade real wood kitchen totally to their specification.

When we met our client, they were mid-way through an extension with another building firm. Our original brief was to create a modern kitchen and utility room – clean lines with contemporary features. We did, however, become far more involved in the preparation and 2nd fixes of their extension including plastering, underfloor heating and installation of a boiler. Parts of the building did not meet the architect’s plans – unable to use them we re-measured all areas and began the kitchen and utility design work to include a large Island with storage space, double sink unit, specialist hot water tap etc.

All units were created in our workshop and hand painted on-site. The kitchen cupboards were finished in De Nimes (a similar colour to pavillion grey from Farrow and Ball)

The kitchen features handcrafted cutlery drawers, an IT unit housing usb points and a cold cupboard for bread, vegetables etc.

In the utility area we created floor to ceiling real wood cupboards to house the washing machine, tumble dryer, household cleaning products, coats, shoes etc – all neatly out of sight

“Kevin and his team are meticulous – their attention to detail is outstanding. Despite the issues they encountered, as a result of the previous builders, they remained totally professional. They simply corrected issues along the way – finding solutions rather highlighting issues for us. They also carried out some additional features to our handmade kitchen including lights to the island, changes to oven area, larger cupboards in utility etc. It is beautiful and now most definitely the heart of the home. So high is my confidence in their professionalism that I have recommended them to a friend carrying out a huge renovation in Bourne End.”
