Here at Vale Designs, the team and I understand that the kitchen is the heart of most homes. Quite honestly, nothing beats that feeling when a client enters their newly designed kitchen for the first time.. That’s why we never tire of receiving emails and letters from our clients. When Amandine emailed us following the installation of one of our designs at her 16th Century cottage, we couldn’t help but smile.
“We have been very pleased with the process of buying a handmade kitchen from start to finish. The plans made maximum use of the space available and the consultation process was excellent with lots of helpful advice. The finished kitchen looks superb and we are delighted with the result. Thank you, Andy and team.”Amandine Dornton-Duff, Levington, Suffolk
We have been making beautiful, handcrafted kitchens for over 25 years but no two kitchens are ever the same. Working closely with our clients every step of the way, each design is bespoke and reflects the individual needs of the people and their home.
From the first phone call, we make sure make sure our clients feel special, valued and cared for. I like to encourage everyone to visit our Suffolk Workshop where you are welcome to see our furniture being made and feel the quality of our craftsmanship. You can spend your time exploring different textures, finishes, handles and design features. It’s a really enjoyable experience.
We have an example kitchen on show, which is fully constructed and finished to help you visualise your new kitchen. You also get to meet the whole Vale Designs team.
Once I have an idea of your brief, and I have visited you at home to take accurate measurements, I design a kitchen that works to your budget and space . The level of detail and attention devoted to these initial drawings is high as I believe in investing time and skill in producing a design that fits your brief. This is one of the many reasons why a Vale Designs kitchen is outstandingly designed and built.
Small or awkward spaces, while challenging, are not a problem. We frequently handmake kitchens for listed buildings and are acutely aware of building constraints. Likewise, we create kitchens for small spaces and many rental properties feature our kitchens along the Suffolk Coast.
All our furniture is built to exact specifications using traditional cabinetry techniques.. As such, we invite our clients to come and see their kitchen take shape.
We believe a beautiful kitchen deserves a beautiful finish and so all our furniture is hand-painted, varnished or oiled by our expert finisher using the best materials for each job.
At Vale Designs, we’re a close-knit team of skilled cabinetmakers who are passionate about what we do. What’s more, we love sharing our craft with other people and so please feel free to pop along and see us. Just don’t forget to call first. We want to be able to give you our full attention when you visit.
