We can’t praise the team at ArtHouse Creative enough. The professionalism, advice and service is second to none. We had a great customer experience from the start of our project, from walking into the showroom Julie made us feel very welcome. We were wowed by the choice in designs and after many further visits (and lots of latte’s later) with their guidance and expertise we finally created and built what we think is a fabulous kitchen that as a family we love spending time in.

Adlington 2017

We are renovating a 200 year old farmhouse and wanted a very sleek and modern kitchen in contrast to the character of the old building. We chose Arthouse Creative Interiors because they not only listened to what our wants and needs were, but also added their experience and design know-how to deliver a kitchen that exceeds our expectations. Julie and her team, especially Chris Lord, were exceptional from start to finish. They helped make this part of the journey stress free and we are so happy with our beautiful kitchen. Would we recommend Arthouse Creative Interiors?…..most definitely!

Northwich 2017

Working initially with Tsiantar Architects, it soon became apparent that our kitchen space was going to be the centre of the house. The place where most of the socialising, family events and action was going to take place. With this in mind, and with the knowledge that a flexible, contemporary kitchen with clean lines was the aesthetic I was looking for, Suzanne Tsiantar recommended ArtHouse Creative Interiors.

This started an interesting journey of ideas, expectations, choices and more choices! There were some setbacks, all of which were underwritten by the determination to get it right by Julie and her dedicated team.

The ArtHouse team considered and covered all aspects of the project and they worked endlessly with the builders, with a ‘hands on’ approach from the very start. Initially, several options were considered, visuals were made which were then presented with photorealistic images of my kitchen, to visualise the space and design clearly. Things were constantly tweaked and changed as things developed. With open dialogue continuing throughout the job, the project became a proactive journey. The inevitable changes and issues which occur with a total refurbishment were seen early in the project and the design was adapted accordingly. Everything was resolved in a practical and design lead way.

One of the unusual features of the kitchen is a very high ceiling for which Julie created a design that would highlight and exaggerate this space with the extra tall oven housing furniture. The layout of the kitchen design works perfectly with our ‘L’ shaped island which features a herb garden and small breakfast bar for entertaining. We needed a downdraft cooktop extractor system and we were invited to the BORA showroom in London for a demonstration to show how the system worked to draw vapours and odours downwards directly from the hob. All of our other cooking requirements have been met and co-ordinated by Miele, including the vacuuming Sous Vide drawer which is perfect for food preparation.

Other elements of the design also needed to be carefully considered for the open space, which includes the exposed pantry area which is great for storage and clearing things away. The drinks area is neatly situated on the dining side and is perfect for our daily morning coffees and as an evening entertaining bar. Finally, as we have collected a lot of art and ornaments over the years, Julie created a floating spaces wall which links the kitchen and dining area together where we can display our memorable pieces.

We are thrilled with our kitchen and the space that has been created. It has been a real pleasure to work with Julie and her team. We had some laughs and some lows (as the whole of the back wall had to be taken down- this wasn’t part of the plan!) The end result for us is just fabulous.

Bowdon 2017

When we first discussed our ideas for our new kitchen with our architect Stephen Wall, who felt we were being too traditional and conventional. Having worked with Arthouse Creative Interiors in the past, he suggested we go and meet with Julie. I was somewhat sceptical about what could be done within our budget constraints, but Julie listened to what was really important to our family life, and then gently guided us towards appropriate solutions. The design concepts she came up with were much more bespoke than the other kitchen companies we visited, and the 3D designs she developed really helped us visualise what was possible.

Julie listened to our ideas of fusing a clean, contemporary finish for the kitchen itself with an industrial look throughout the rest of the space, and provided practical pointers on the overall look and the compromises we could make to deliver it within budget. The process was helpful without being intrusive and there was thankfully no pressure selling like we experienced elsewhere. We were both surprised and pleased when she showed us the costs and they were in-line with our budget.

With everything ordered and a date set for the Arthouse kitchen installation team to start, our main builder missed his deadlines and we had to put the install date back. Arthouse responded well to this, using the time to meet on site with our builder to discuss some of the finer details which made the ultimate installation run more smoothly. Inevitably there were some snags with the installation, but the Arthouse team were responsive throughout.

Whenever people visit us, they are taken aback by the kitchen, which does looks breath-taking. However, what is just as important to us is that it works for our family on a day-to-day basis, which is due to a combination of the smart features built in to the SieMatic range and the clever planning of the layout developed by Arthouse.

We are genuinely pleased that our architect suggested Arthouse Creative Interiors as we would likely have ended up with the ‘kitchen of the day’, which would have dated quickly. Instead, we have a stunning kitchen that suits our family’s lifestyle and will stand the test of time in all respects. We have therefore already recommended Arthouse to a number of our friends that are considering updating their kitchens.

Kitchen Profile:
This SieMatic S3 collection combines innovative design ideas with quality materials in a Matt Laminate finish and stainless steel coloured grip rail handles. The contrasting warm tone of the furniture is offset by the cool, thin, Glacier White Corian work surface on the geometrical shaped island, which complements the angled architecture of the room. Sleek Neff appliances and a minimalist Neff down draft extractor complete the contemporary design.

Now that we have spent time enjoying our fantastic kitchen, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team at ArtHouse Creative Interiors for our amazing kitchen. We are so thankful to our friends who originally recommended you. When we first walked into your inspiring showroom, and had a first-hand experience viewing the kitchens you had to offer, we knew there was no going back. They are so unique and stylish, yet utterly practical.

From the outset through to design, Julie was an absolute pleasure to meet with and her expertise, passion and knowledge were invaluable. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the visuals and were so excited when the installation began. Steve, our ArtHouse kitchen fitter was so professional and ensured the installation was completed with as little disruption as possible and on schedule. He was so passionate about the kitchen he was fitting.

Now that the kitchen is complete it has definitely changed our home and the way we live. So much thought had gone into the details of the design as my husband is a lot taller than myself so having the split worktop heights really worked with the ergonomics of the kitchen. We have had the pleasure of using the Zip tap and we certainly couldn’t live without one now! We love spending time as a family cooking, baking, eating and entertaining together. The kitchen has definitely given our home the WOW factor and we will certainly be recommending ArtHouse Creative Interiors to friends and family in the future.

Bolton 2016

We are totally thrilled with our whole experience from Arthouse. From our first meeting with Julie and our subsequent design meetings with Chris we have ended up with our dream kitchen. Steve the fitter was a pleasure to have in our home. He fitted the kitchen with precision and passion as if he was fitting his first, although it was probably his one thousand and first. All together it’s been a pleasure and we can’t recommend Arthouse highly enough.

Bowdon 2015

Arthouse provided a very thorough and professional job, resulting in a beautiful kitchen and dining area. But more than that it has changed the feel and the way we live in the house for the better.
It has integrated all the living spaces into a single contiguous area.
We love it!
