Guy and Pam Cheeseman have been designing and hand making truly bespoke kitchens for more than 35 years. We find it a joy to create kitchens that solve all problems, deliver a polished result and delight our customers. Please call us to arrange a free consultation and see how we can transform your kitchen.
With our workshop and studio situated in the heart of the South Downs National Park, our talented team makes every element of a new kitchen by hand.
We stick to traditional methods and don’t cut corners using easier construction techniques at the expense of quality. We have an open door at our workshop and welcome new and existing clients to come and visit our team at work.
Guy and Pam
Guy and Pam started out restoring old stripped pine furniture, which quickly developed into them being asked to make kitchens. We have worked in a washhouse and a converted pig shed, survived a devastating fire then moved to our current workshop.
In 2019 we brought our Petersfield showroom to the workshop to give our customers a seamless experience. In our spare time we are heavily involved in Petersfield Rugby Club where we are both Vice Presidents (Pam is a former head of England Women’s Rugby). And after 40 years together we are still talking and still married!
Guy leads our workshop team, who are still using some of the same hand tools Guy and Pam picked up the day they started.
What is bespoke?
Here at Dowers Kitchens we have the skills and tools to make whatever you need – and since you’re not restricted to a manufacturer’s specifications, feel free to set us a challenge: we’re always up for it. We can cater to any need you have.
A truly bespoke kitchen is made to fit the space, not the other way round. That often calls for some intricate cutting and imaginative problem-solving by our craftsmen and fitters.
Why a good kitchen lasts a lifetime
At Dowers we build our kitchens to last! We use traditional dovetail joints in box constructions such as drawers to ensure strength and trueness. This ensures your new kitchen will withstand all the pressures of a busy house. Within your overall kitchen concept, we’ll use specialist materials in specific locations, such as breadboard ends next to an AGA to prevent warping, cracking, overheating or other damage.
The detail we put into the finish is another contributor to our kitchens lasting. This is your kitchen, and you’re welcome to get involved. Some clients get hands-on and spend time with us in the workshop, liming their own cupboard doors with us to achieve the exact shade and finish they want.
