Green Shaker Kitchen with Perrin & Rowe Ionian with crosstops in Aged Brass

“We were delighted with our choice of Sustainable Kitchens for house. From the design through to the installation they were thoroughly professional and a joy to work with. We particularly enjoyed the attention to detail of the design phase and time taken to ensure we the design made the most of the available space and captured everything we desired. The finished product is fantastic and a real pleasure to use.!

Dark Green Shaker kitchen with Polished Brass tap on a Carrera Mable island and Vintage Holophane pendant lighting

"I found your kitchen company via a Pinterest picture – and BOY! And am I glad I did! I very much hope this is the end of a frankly frustrating search for a kitchen company that totally gets the look I’m going for, and at the right price point. When I say “industrial shaker” to any other company, they just look at me like I’m a few clowns short of a circus. When I saw the very same phrase written large on your website, I said a silent “hallelujah”. When I saw the exquisite cabinetry, I said “yes baby, I’m home!”

Pegboard Plywood Kitchen with movable island with 50mm thick stainless steel worktop

"There’s one thing having a dream about how you want something to look and function and another thing completely seeing it executed to perfection by a team of people who have enough faith and passion to think a hob in an island on giant castors isn’t totally bonkers. Every line is millimetre perfect and we feel incredibly lucky to have a kitchen that we continue to look at and think “bloody hell, that’s beautiful.”

Scandinavian Woodland Kitchen with large kitchen island and breakfast bar stools

"We used this company to make our new kitchen a year ago because their unit sizes were bespoke, hand painted, solid wood and they also did larders something we really wanted. We liked the Shaker look and had found it hard to source. We also liked the young, independent feel of the company. The price also fitted our expectations. I would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone and subsequently friends have used them. Our kitchen even ended up in Ideal Home magazine this June. If we move and need a new kitchen again I would definitely be calling Sustainable."

Contemporary Eco Kitchen with plywood cabinets and stainless steel worktops

We were delighted with our entire experience of working with Sustainable Kitchens. The design process was a complete pleasure. We wanted a unique contemporary kitchen and they enthusiastically embraced the challenge. Sam really listened to what I wanted and was prepared to change, refine, experiment as many times as was necessary until all the detailing was perfect. Nothing was too small or insignificant- and this was all juggled with entertaining my toddler in their showroom kitchen! It was such a personal service, I was able to see the cabinets being made up in the workshop and kept up to date with progress. Installation was brilliant and Charlie made sure that the attention to detail was maintained to the very end. The workmanship is excellent and the pleasure gained every day from using our beautifully crafted kitchen is priceless.

Steel, Marble, Reclaimed Wood Kitchen with stainless steel worktop, Calacatta Venato marble island worktop, Lacanche Hood & Range and reclaimed boxcar oak larder

“It took much longer than expected to find a company that gave us a high enough level of confidence in their design sensibilities and competence to proceed with this project. We eventually achieved these, and more, with Sustainable Kitchens, and right from the very first meeting. Ahead of appointing SK we were excited to have created a great space for a new kitchen from what used to be the old milking parlour. We had a good sized, bright and open space with three sided rural views that also possessed simple but strong structural features. We wanted something a little bit different, a bit less like “a kitchen” and something with gorgeous natural materials and textures. It would also need to be simple and in balance with the lines of the new room. The space however had already eluded a number of attempts at successful kitchen design by others. We figured we had the right people as soon as we met up with the proprietor Sam Shaw who was enthusiastic, interested in ideas and had a great eye for design and aesthetics. Rather than seeing the problem of creating a kitchen in what we considered a unique room he saw the opportunity for something special. This rapport continued throughout the process with not only Sam but all the staff at Sustainable Kitchens until the job was eventually finished, and indeed afterwards too. Even the long delays we introduced insisting on waiting for different timber samples of rare reclaimed oak timbers was accommodated without fuss. Sustainable Kitchens retained their positive attitude right through, providing a practical, functional and attractive kitchen, and were also respectful and realistic about budget control too. It was refreshing to have such openness and honesty. They were thoroughly professional and personable to deal with from beginning to end and we will have no doubts about appointing them again.”

"Great team you've got there... Gianluca even swept up biscuit crumbs, which, given the amount of dust there is, was incredibly thoughtful. Superb customer service and, more to the point, really nice people."

A&A V

"We are delighted with our new kitchen and would like to thank you for your great service and brilliant craftsmanship. As part of our renovation project we wanted something really special for our kitchen and we were certainly not disappointed. Sam's personal and professional approach was really refreshing. You helped us turn our ideas into a great design, even if that meant reworking things until we were 100% happy. Charlie's calmness at the house was really needed. The fact our Victorian house had really uneven floors and walls created a few fitting dilemmas. Charlie was unfazed by this, making it all work and fit beautifully. The end product is fantastic and the layout works really well. The service throughout has been excellent and all the team have been great. We would highly recommend It Woodwork."

M & A M

Having a kitchen with rough stone walls made finding a company who could deal with them sympathetically a challenge. However It Woodwork's approach was really positive, and the answer to our ever more pernickety requests was almost always an unfaltering "yes". We loved the suggestion that the work could be done while we were on holiday, so upheaval was kept to a minimum. The finished product is stunning, and of the best quality we could ever have expected. It is telling that visitors now come in and, instead of commenting on the bright yellow cooker as we'd expected, start lovingly fondling the wood!

We couldn't wish for a more beautiful, high quality kitchen. From our first meeting, the team at It Woodwork were so helpful and clearly extremely talented with outstanding design ideas. We found it very refreshing not to be dealing with a sales person but someone who really knows the ins and outs of what makes a great kitchen and clearly so passionate about what they do. After having received quotes from a number of competitors we were delighted to find a company offering the highest end quality at competitive prices. The level of detail is fantastic and the craftsmanship couldn't be beaten. We're extremely pleased with our decision to choose It Woodwork and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Sustainable Kitchen's attention to detail on this project has been painstaking, making sure the finished product is stylish, practical and unique. Every time we use our kitchen we are reminded of the quality of materials and the high standards of crafstmanship that has gone into its construction. Designed with our lifestyle in mind, the use of space and functionality of the layout is wonderful. Being involved in the process throughout has been an organic experience for us and we have learnt a lot about ourselves which we ingrained into the heart of happy and busy home. Sustainable's workforce are consummate professionals that are a pleasure to have around the house. We would recommend their services highly.

We are really pleased with our kitchen and the service. Things we love about the kitchen: The wooden shelves in our tall cupboards which pull out so we can actually find things! The beautiful island with wrap around oak. It not only looks fantastic but it's become the hub of our house. It's great for socialising and the kids love having their breakfast on the island and hanging out after school. It's also great for cooking. we love how bright and clean-lined and simple it looks. Thanks to the wood worktops and clever lighting it's also warm and inviting. It's also very practical and functional. Everyone who has seen our kitchen has said either "Wow" or "Stunning". What we love about the service: We felt listened to and that nothing was ever too much. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and patient.
