The stunning range of kitchen designs have been developed and created by hand in a variety of classic through to contemporary styles that will complement any type of property.
John Lewis of Hungerford has thirteen showrooms open to the public across the country and has launched an online store where the beautiful kitchen and furniture collections can be viewed and purchased. With four decades of expertise, the company has seen extensive growth and the demand for nostalgic kitchen styling has resulted in the revival of the traditional front framed kitchen. As a British manufacturer, John Lewis strives to source locally produced items, which enables the company to be competitive and flexible.

The ‘Artisan In your Home’ service is a full home design and consultation service which enables the customer to view all the kitchen and furniture collections in the comfort of their own home.

Within the showrooms are teams of skilled and dedicated designers who can provide guidance and advice on a no obligation basis. The designer can then produce an initial drawing for consideration, together with a ballpark kitchen and installation cost. Once the customer has agreed on the basic design a technical survey will be carried out and a design approval meeting will be arranged to put into place all the details and specifications. Detailed drawings will be created with a final costing and once confirmed, the kitchen will be ready for installation in around eight weeks. Installation is carried out by the company’s team of professional installers who have full project capability, including gas and electrical installation compliant with current legislation.
