John Pardey Architects have been proud to work with Phil Brown of Kraftwork where he has become part of our team, creating kitchens for our award-wining houses. What sets Kraftwork apart is personal service, attention to detail and the most extraordinary finish – all at less than half the price of the quality German kitchens – creating beautiful hand made kitchens with soul, that give so much pleasure to the home owners.

I have had the pleasure of working with Phillip on several of my contracts. Not only does he have excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail, he also provides the invaluable addition of actually listening to client requirements and will happily suggest (what usually turns out to be better!) design options to tailor their needs. Something you don’t even get from larger and far more expensive companies! From a main contractors view point you get the whole package, as he takes control right through the design, manufacturing and fitting, much easier than dealing with several individuals. I’d definitely recommend using Kraftwork to anyone.

Working with Phil to design and build my dream kitchen was exactly that – a dream. From start to finish he not only understood what I wanted but also knew better than I how the kitchen needed to work for our lifestyle. Every idea, every suggestion made the kitchen even better than I had hoped it would be. And the whole process of the build was so educational and enjoyable, being able to watch the kitchen come alive in the studio really made it possible to build the best possible kitchen imaginable. I have recommended Phil to many friends and clients and will definitely work with him again. Thank you for all of this.

Our birch ply kitchen by Phillip and his team is a fitted piece of art in our house. Beautifully crafted with precise attention to detail. Phillip has given us a practical thing of beauty. Thank you!

We have had our Kraftwork kitchen for 3 years and it is still as beautiful as the day it was installed. We live in an architect designed modern house and the kitchen complements it perfectly. Choosing our kitchen was tricky… there were so many to choose from but we know we could not have found anything that so completely met our design requirements and was so well made. We can’t speak highly enough of Phillip Brown and his company.

Phil at Kraftwork designed and made my kitchen and the cabinet fittings for my ensuite bathroom. From a few photographs and a meeting to discuss how I wanted to use the spaces Phil designed, made and installed a beautiful kitchen that works just as I do. All the details that I worried about (the fridge projecting so that it was openable while still recessing it in a housing) he worked through to produce a very clean and beautiful result. He gives fantastic attention to detail and he will think about little touches that lift the design (slanted edges to my pantry shelves) and make your life easier (corian shelf to bathroom cabinet) details that I had not thought about and he just did. My kitchen units have a book matched veneer which must have been a headache in the workshop but has resulted in a very harmonious natural look in my kitchen. He really is an excellent cabinet maker.

I must express our thanks for the quality and service provided by your company in supplying and fitting our new kitchen. The quality of the units is outstanding and the fit is spot on. I would like to say that we will definitely order our next kitchen from your company, but due to the build quality of the new kitchen I feel it will be many many years before a new one is due.

Kraftwork built us a kitchen with real ‘wow’ factor that is both functional, and a pleasure to work in. It was an important consideration for us when choosing a company, that we could convey our ideas to the designer, as well as having the benefit of his knowledge and experience. We were not disappointed. They designed us a very stylish kitchen that contains many innovative solutions to common storage problems. Kraftwork deliver a very professional service. Reliability and customer satisfaction is a strong feature of this company. The quality of craftmanship and attention to detail is obvious from conception through to installation.

Phillip Brown of Kraftwork designed, built and installed a beautiful oak kitchen for our home. I worked with Philip to produce a design particular to my requirements and tastes and he proved himself to be open, practical and creative. Phillip helped in the sourcing of appliances that would compliment the overall design, and built the main kitchen units himself with great care and precision. I was able to visit his workshop on several occasions to see work in progress and he then installed the kitchen painlessly and to schedule. Phillip has successfully designed and installed oak units and bath surrounds for us, as well as bedroom cupboards. I would not hesitate to recommend him for a quality service and approachable manner.
