The art of kitchen design

When it comes to creating your dream kitchen, most retailers will have a great brochure and a clever piece of software on their computers to create a plan for a kitchen fitter to follow. Of course we have those too, however, where Kettle Co is different is that we recognise there’s much more to it than that.

Everybody has their own idea of what kind of kitchen they need, right down to the nitty gritty of including a special place for the dog’s bowl or needing a certain length of worktop for making pasta. With kitchens now often being the heart of the home, a place for the family to gather, it makes sense that when the time comes to invest in yours, you’ll want your kitchen company to feel as passionate about it as you – and here’s where we come in.

Unlike many kitchen companies, our roots are in creativity and design, rather than just how to operate a computer. As our Founder and Managing Director, Dale Williams, says: “I grew up immersed in kitchen design and manufacture. My father was a time-served cabinet maker, carpenter and all-round kitchen craftsman and his passion embedded deeply in my soul.”  That passion led to Dale completing a BA in design before becoming an apprentice in kitchen making and fitting, where he was able to use his background in design to create well thought out kitchens, that were part and parcel of each customer’s aspirations and personality.

We won’t offer you a ‘one design fits all’ solution. We believe that if you commit to buying a kitchen from us then the very least we can do is to ensure we fit the kitchen to you, rather than the other way round. So, for example, if you like a certain type of door from one range and a cupboard design from another, that’s no problem for us. Because we are independent, we can choose which door manufacturers we work with, which worktop companies we want to create your worktop – and we’ll work closely with you every step of the way to ensure you are satisfied. So, whether you want a traditional style kitchen or something sleek, glossy and modern – or something in between – we’ll make it happen and it won’t be the same as anyone else’s kitchen.

You’d think that all this would make us more expensive than the big retailers – but we’re happy to tell you that, like for like, we tend to be more competitive price-wise. We don’t have the big overheads or infrastructure costs of the big retailers so we can spend more on your kitchen, more on ensuring the design and the fittings are exactly what you want and more on spending time with you to ensure everything is going to plan.

Customer service is very important to us, but you don’t need to take our word for it. We are the only multi-store kitchen supplier in Devon and Cornwall to have been endorsed as a Which® Trusted Trader.

What’s more, because our showrooms are based in the same building as the well-known electronics and appliances retailer, HBH Woolacotts, you can plan your kitchen design with us and then take a stroll round their showrooms to get some inspiration for a new kettle, toaster or coffee machine to go in your new kitchen. After all, when you’ve decided to invest in making your dream a reality, you want to be sure that every last little detail is just as it should be.
