hand-made kitchen

By design, by hand, by Dowers

There comes a point where you just want your kitchen your way. To be unconstrained by standard shapes, sizes, styles and configurations that someone else has chosen. To begin from the premise that not every space comprises four flat walls that meet in perfect right angles. To create something that truly reflects you, your life and way of doing things.

And the only way to do that is to go handmade. But a handbuilt kitchen isn’t an ornament, trophy or work of art. It’s a living, working space, at the very centre of your home and family life. A place to cook (of course) but also to chat, entertain, relax or just take a minute to think. And it’s where all the best parties end up.
