Why choose a Stone and Chrome bespoke kitchen?

This Bank Holiday weekend perhaps you are looking around your home (yes we know, you’ve seen a lot of it recently!) and thinking it’s about time to make some changes? So here are six good reasons to consider a Stone and Chrome bespoke kitchen:

Family run

We are a friendly and approachable family run business with over 30 years experience. This means that we are able to really listen to your needs and will work closely with you throughout the project to ensure that everything is just as you want it to be.

For example, in the classic shaker kitchen shown below, one of the priorities for our client was to have an open feel to the kitchen but with a visible ‘break’ from the rest of the living area. This would enable her to be able to chat to family and friends whilst cooking but without them getting in her way! The ideal solution was a peninsula, which provides a natural divider between the two areas.


All our kitchens are handmade in our Oxford workshop and are constructed using the best combination of traditional joinery methods with modern machinery. This enables us to create the beautiful dovetail joints and precision construction that have become hallmarks of a Stone and Chrome bespoke kitchen.


We’re also big on sustainability. We feel passionately about preserving the forests for future generations. So all our kitchens are made from solid timber, including our carcasses. Our wood is sourced from well managed responsible forests, and provides the best foundation for the solidity and longevity of your kitchen.

We love the pantry shown below. It features smoked oak internals and the drawers can be customised to say anything. This formed an essential part of one of our beautiful handmade in-frame shaker bespoke kitchens. You can take a look at the rest of the kitchen here.

High quality materials

We only use the best materials. Our kitchen cupboard carcasses are all constructed from birch ply and our doors, cornice and skirting are made from tulip wood and accoya. 

Our quality bespoke work surfaces are made either from natural stone or a stunning man-made alternative. Our key worktop partners are Silestone, Classic Quartz Stone and Caesarstone. To find out more about our work surfaces take a look at our recent article The best work surfaces for your kitchen.


A Stone & Chrome bespoke handmade kitchen arrives fully assembled and hand painted. This avoids the inconvenience of having your kitchen painted after installation, and means that installation usually only takes a few days. 

But the choice of colour is completely yours! We can match colours from a variety of colour palettes from different manufacturers such as Farrow and Ball, Mylands, Paint and Paper library or Little Greene. To find out more, check out our recent article Colourful kitchen designs.

We love the colour of classic shaker kitchen below, painted in Farrow and Ball’s Dove Tale, which we recently installed for a client in Camberley. You can see full details of this wonderful kitchen here.

Expert project management

Last but by no means least, your bespoke kitchen project is fully managed from start to finish by one of our expert project managers. This not only adds that all-important personal touch, but ensures that the whole process is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
