THE ARTISAN COUNTRY STYLE KITCHEN
The Artisan® custom made kitchen is our original and most easily identifiable John Lewis of Hungerford kitchen design.
Its traditional and elegantly plain English style works perfectly in a range of homes from a country kitchen to a Georgian town house and in authentic farmhouse kitchens too. Like a well-loved piece of furniture, Artisan® kitchen designs age beautifully and settle comfortably into the heart of your home.
Freestanding kitchen units can make a powerful statement in Artisan®, with showpiece Islands that offer lots of storage, pot-ends and deep drawers – and provide a very social space to entertain and prepare food. Continuing in the tradition of classic English kitchens we have extended the range to include beautiful glass-fronted wall cabinets that act like a dresser – perfect to show off your collection of crockery and glassware. Contrasting paint colours can even be applied inside.
The door for the Artisan® classic kitchen is available in two options that both incorporate a Raised Fielded centre panel and drawer edge detailing. The painted kitchen finishes available for original Artisan® kitchens can be either rubbed & antiqued or satin eggshell.
Like any John Lewis kitchen, our in-frame, handmade kitchen brings a nostalgic, traditional cabinet construction at a surprisingly affordable price, with some up-to-the-minute advantages.
In-frame Artisan® handmade kitchens are created with pride by one of our skilled artisans using a Medite frame for a flawless paint finish. Adjustable hand-forged butt hinges are available in a pewter, polished or antiqued finish. The inset magnetic door aligners ensure that the kitchen unit doors close neatly without binding and our wall cabinets retain our super deep shelves allowing you to place large dinner plates inside. Drawers feature traditional dovetail jointed, fully-extending drawer box construction and are fitted to be soft-closing every time.
The Lay-on look is an alternative style for classic kitchens and gives a timeless, easy on the eye, balanced look. As with all our handmade kitchens, high quality workmanship means that Artisan® delivers a real ‘cook’s kitchen’ that will last for years.
ARTISAN DOOR STYLE
A frame is attached to the front of a cabinet to hide the front edges of it. The doors and drawerfronts sit and open within the frames and the cabinets are fitted with special hinges and drawerfronts to suit. The hinges are often visible when the door is shut.
This is a feature of traditional cabinetry inspired from the early 1900s but tends to be more expensive than lay-on doors.
ARTISAN DOOR STYLE
The advantage of the lay-on door style is that there are very small gaps between doors and drawers, creating a consistent and continuous appearance, but still with that ‘traditional kitchen’ feel. That means bigger drawers and more space for storage.
