Bespoke Artisan Kitchens

The traditional and elegant Artisan kitchen style.

What is an Artisan kitchen?

The Artisan kitchen is a quintessentially country kitchen brimming with quality materials, handcrafted cabinetry and classical details, and is our original and most identifiable John Lewis of Hungerford kitchen design. Its elegant and simple English style works perfectly in a range of homes, from an authentic farmhouse to a Georgian town house.

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.

The detailed cabinetry in this range incorporates a raised field centre panel and beautiful drawer edge detailing. You can add to the traditional aesthetic of our Artisan kitchen cabinets by showcasing your collection of crockery and glassware with beautiful glass-fronted wall cabinets that act like a dresser.

Elegant and Traditional Country Kitchens from John Lewis of Hungerford

Our beautiful Artisan kitchens offer a traditional design that can be tailored to your needs, personal style and preferred kitchen layout. At John Lewis of Hungerford, we are meticulous about the details and finishing touches that go into each of our bespoke kitchen designs.

What makes an Artisan kitchen special?

Artisan kitchens are incredibly detail-oriented. Drawers feature traditional dovetail jointed, fully extendable drawers fitted to be soft-closing every time. Adjustable hand-forged butt hinges are available in a pewter, polished or antiqued finish, while the inset magnetic door aligners ensure that your kitchen doors close neatly without binding. These are all part of the hallmark design of the time-honoured country kitchen. Traditional touches such as extra deep shelving for large dinner plates, pull-out chopping boards and glazed wall cabinets can be juxtaposed with contemporary splashes of colour and sleek worktops to create a kitchen that is truly bespoke and one of a kind.

By choosing from an array of paint, hardware and layout options, this traditional kitchen style can be moulded into something truly unique. By successfully creating a middle ground for old and new to come together, an Artisan kitchen design presents the perfect opportunity to mix materials within your kitchen. From neutral cabinetry to statement islands, we work with you to create a kitchen that is distinctly ‘you’.


Our Artisan kitchen range allows for a choice of lay-on or in-frame doors. Our in-frame handmade kitchens and doors bring nostalgic, traditional cabinet construction with some modern advantages. The lay-on look is an alternative style for classic kitchens and ensures a timeless and balanced feel.

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
