We build all of our kitchens in our Cambridgeshire workshop and they are constructed to the same rigorous, precise standards using in-frame construction. If you don’t love your kitchen space however, then you probably want to spend as little time in there you need to. Our fitted kitchens can revolutionise the way you use your kitchen, giving you adequate storage and making the most of your space. If you want tall, wide, fitted or island units, you’ll find our kitchens can flex your imagination. The mouths of the 1,200-odd members of Henry VIII’s court required an endless stream of dinners to be produced in the enormous kitchens of Hampton Court Palace.

Kitchens must, of course, be practical, but with an ever-increasing range of kitchen cabinets, kitchen appliances , kitchen worktops and kitchen accessories to choose from, they can also be a stylish space that reflects your personality. The most common cooking equipment in Chinese family kitchens and restaurant kitchens are woks, steamer basket, and pots. Great finishes and design consistency can be achieved when designed and built at the same time.kitchenskitchenskitchens

There will be one winner selected at random each calendar month from new subscribers to the in-toto Kitchens newsletter in the previous calendar month. Designer Amir Khamneipur likes to throw cocktail parties — he once fit 60 guests into his tiny Flatiron apartment — so he incorporated the kitchen into the design of the living room. Commercial kitchens are generally (in developed countries) subject to public health laws. This type of design proved very popular and featured within many homes throughout the 1970’s.
