What is an Artisan kitchen?

Traditional, elegant Artisan kitchen style

The Artisan kitchen is our original and most identifiable John Lewis of Hungerford kitchen design. If you’re looking for a traditional country kitchen that is the heart of your home, our original Artisan design is for you. Its 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 an Artisan style kitchen, 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 the Artisan range includes 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.

What makes an Artisan kitchen special?

Artisan kitchens are all about the details. Drawers feature traditional dovetail jointed, fully-extending drawer box construction and are fitted to be soft-closing every time. 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. These are all part of the hallmark design of the traditional country kitchen.

Crafted Cabinetry

Artisan handmade kitchens are created with pride by our skilled craftsmen. The detailed cabinetry incorporates a raised field centre panel and beautiful drawer edge detailing. We use a combination of traditional and modern techniques and select only materials best suited to making each part. That way you always get a Artisan kitchen that’s built to last.

The Artisan kitchen makes a great canvas to put your own mark on. Choosing options such as neutral colours with pared back cabinetry allows for the eye-catching granite worksurface to have maximum impact, making it the focal point of the design. By successfully creating a middle ground for old and new to come together, this Artisan kitchen design incorporates the popular interior design style for mixing materials in the kitchen.


Our Artisan kitchen range is available in a choice of lay-on or in-frame doors. Our in-frame, handmade kitchen brings nostalgic, traditional cabinet construction with some up-to-the-minute advantages. The Lay-on look is an alternative style for classic kitchens and gives a timeless, easy on the eye, balanced look.

The new kitchen is lovely. The fitters were absolutely excellent - they worked through the snow every day with only the shortest break for lunch to get it done and were extremely courteous and helpful. The kitchen looks excellent. K. Russell, Donnington
