We originally came across Chris and his team via Panoramic Properties who were doing a complete refurb on our house!
Once most of the work was completed, we decided to re-do the kitchen too, as it would tie in with our new colour scheme and layout of the house!
The design process, choosing the colours, details of interiors of the drawers, handles, worktop etc were all made so easy….. We went along to the showroom to see all the choices for ourselves and once we’d made the decisions, we were able to see it all “on screen”! Complete, our lovely new kitchen. It looked amazing, being able to visualise it, see it, all in its glory, it was fantastic!
The installation date was a few weeks away so we had plenty of time to choose accessories etc. The team arrived to install our new kitchen and every day, the area was left clean and tidy! Taking away all the rubbish, cardboard boxes etc. The guys were very respectful of our space, our home! In turn we made sure they had plenty of refreshments!
I can honestly say, the whole experience from start to finish has been fantastic! Chris and the team kept us in the loop with everything that was happening regarding the kitchen, it’s installation and whether anything was running late!
We love it! It’s a great entertaining space as well as our every-day cooking area! Thank you to everyone at Arthouse, it was probably the least stressful experience we’ve had, especially as it affected the most “worked” area of the house. Would we recommend you? ….. 100% we would!
WE GOOGLED LOCAL KITCHEN SUPPLIERS AND FOUND ARTHOUSE IN ALDERLEY EDGE AND A FABULOUS JOURNEY STARTED THERE. WE VISITED THE SHOP AND IT HAD SO MANY KITCHEN STYLES AND COMBINATIONS TO VIEW WE KNEW WE WERE JUST GOING TO HAVE THEM FOR OUR KITCHEN AS THEY WERE CONTEMPORARY BUT ALSO HAD SO MUCH CHOICE AND EXPERIENCED SALES STAFF.
WE DISCUSSED OUR THOUGHTS, AND THE DESIGN WAS DRAWN UP WITH SOME CHOICES TO MAKE. YOU COULD SEE THAT THE DESIGNER HAD LISTENED, AND WE WERE THRILLED. THERE WAS NO PUSH TO UPSELL OR TOWARDS EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS BUT A DESIRE TO SEE US CHOOSE OUR DREAM KITCHEN. THE TEAM CAME TO MEASURE AT HOME, AND WE EVEN COULD MAKE SO LAST-MINUTE ADDITIONS. THE AMAZING THING WAS NO DELAYS THEY CAME TO FIT ON THE PROMISED DATE ALONG WITH CHRIS WHO HAD HELPED IN DESIGN AND THE SALE IT WAS A PERSONAL SERVICE.
THE FITTING TEAM WERE QUICK AND TIDY, AND ALL APPLIANCES AND THE ISLAND AND CUPBOARDS ALL FIT AND FUNCTIONED PERFECTLY. I HAVE RECOMMENDED THEM TO FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES AS WE HAVE OUR DREAM KITCHEN WITH NO DELAY OR HITCHES … GREAT PERSONAL SERVICE.
We tried some other high end kitchen designers in the North West and were disappointed at the level of service we received. ArtHouse was totally different. Emma was so engaged with us from the start. She was interested in what we wanted in our kitchen, rather than forcing ideas onto us. She guided us through the design process and made it fun.
We’ve now got a kitchen that is better than we imagined it could be. It’s the centre of our home life and means that we entertain all the time.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK JULIE AND HER TEAM FOR ALL THE EFFORT THAT THEY HAVE MADE TO ENSURE OUR KITCHEN WAS INSTALLED TO THE SCHEDULED DATES, WHICH HAS NOT BEEN EASY DUE TO SUPPLY SITUATIONS AND ALL THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH COVID JULIE DID THE INITIAL DESIGNS FROM OUR ARCHITECT’S PLANS, VISITED ON SITE AS OUR NEW HOME WAS BEING BUILT AND ENSURED THAT THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION MET ALL OUR INITIAL REQUIREMENTS.
ALL OUR FRIENDS HAVE BEEN VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE BEAUTIFUL KITCHEN, AND WE WOULD NOT HESITATE IN RECOMMENDING ARTHOUSE CREATIVE INTERIORS TO ANYONE WHO IS CONSIDERING THE PURCHASE OF A NEW KITCHEN.
I used to walk past ArtHouse Creative Interiors in Alderley Edge, and I fell in love with the kitchen in the front window. When it came to having a new kitchen in our renovation project, I had to get the kitchen from the window display!
Emma was extremely lovely, very helpful and responded quickly. We designed our kitchen during lockdown so we couldn’t go into the studio, but Emma brought out samples to our site. Emma helped us stick to our budget by having two different worktops – which look amazing!
The visuals Emma created look identical to what is now our living kitchen!
We would most defiantly recommend ArtHouse.
We absolutely love this kitchen!
Throughout the process, Arthouse were simply a joy to work with. Incorporating all our own ideas and family requirements into the build. Nothing was too much trouble and we picked up some lovely freestanding furniture from them also.
Arthouse were by far our favourite supplier. Attention to detail, tons of support and ideas and always delivering to the highest possible quality. They really do take great pride in what they do.
After our kitchen installation, Arthouse were available for tweaks and anything we have needed. Again, a wonderful partner to work with long after the initial install was completed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Arthouse. We love our kitchen and our appliances really are superb. The Arthouse team are definitely the ones to help to fulfil your dream kitchen!
THE EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH ARTHOUSE FOR THE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION OF A NEW KITCHEN AT OUR HOME WAS A PLEASURE FROM THE OUTSET. THE BRIEF WAS CAPTURED ACCURATELY, AND WE WERE PRESENTED WITH STUNNING DESIGNS. AFTER FINALISING THE DESIGNS, THE PROJECT WAS DELIVERED ON TIME AND WITH HIGH LEVELS OF PROFESSIONALISM.
THE INSTALLATION TEAM DID A FANTASTIC JOB DEMONSTRATING REAL CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THEIR WORK. WE ARE DELIGHTED WITH THE END RESULT.
OUR KITCHEN SPACE HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED AND WE HAVE THE REASSURANCE THAT ARTHOUSE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT DELIVERING HIGH LEVELS OF CUSTOMER SERVICE SHOULD WE REQUIRE ANY AFTER SALES SUPPORT.
HAVING PREVIOUSLY HAD THREE HAND PAINTED KITCHENS WE KNEW WE WANTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT. WE HAVE ALWAYS ADMIRED SIEMATIC FOR THEIR SHARP INNOVATIVE STYLE. ARTHOUSE CREATIVE INTERIORS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED IN ALDERLEY EDGE SINCE 2004 AND WERE THE OBVIOUS STARTING POINT FOR OUR RESEARCH. HAVING WON NUMEROUS ACCOLADES IN AS MANY YEARS WE WERE GREETED BY A PROFESSIONAL TEAM.
WITH A STATE-OF-THE-ART SHOWROOM WE WERE GUIDED THROUGH THE MANY DESIGNS AND OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR OUR NEW OPEN PLAN KITCHEN. THE TEAM EFFORTLESSLY CREATED A DESIGN WHICH WORKED WELL FOR US, SUGGESTING THE USE OF THE LATEST MATERIALS AND APPLIANCES.
WE ARE DELIGHTED WITH THE SERVICE AND INSTALLATION ARTHOUSE PROVIDED AND WOULD RECOMMEND THEM.
I required several SieMatic kitchens and associated appliances for a multi-site development. Against this criteria, Arthouse Creative Interiors are simply head and shoulders above others in being able to deliver.
From the design experience, the depth of products and appliances offered, through to installation, the experience is second to none.
Everyone is a pleasure to work with, but a particular mention to Chris, who combines inspiration with practical application and unrivalled attention to detail. The end results are without equal.
Buying a SieMatic kitchen through Arthouse was a pleasure from start to finish. The design process was very collaborative, and Julie also liaised well with our architect and main contractor to tweak both kitchen design, and interior wall layout to create the perfect space for us.
Installation was superbly done by very experienced fitters, and the inevitable minor glitches that come with all building works were quickly resolved. We now have a superb dining kitchen where it is a pleasure to cook for (and with) friends and family.
I would happily recommend Arthouse to anyone who is looking for a kitchen that is as stylish as it is practical
Installing a new kitchen, although exciting, can be a daunting experience especially for a single person. There are so many elements to consider and decisions to be made.
I had been toying with the idea of a change for some considerable time, but the SieMatic kitchen I had installed 20 years previously, was still in good condition and also I didn’t think it was possible to come up with an alternative layout that fulfilled my requirements.
After admiring a friend’s superb new kitchen, she recommended I visit ArtHouse Creative Interiors in Alderley Edge. I was warmly welcomed by Julie who I recognised to be the designer of my existing kitchen all those years ago before setting up her own business. I knew at that moment that I wanted to work with Julie again, her warm and friendly manner putting me at ease instantly.
In the comfort of the Arthouse office over a cup of coffee, Julie and Emma showed me various layout options, but the design which blew me away was the wildcard. I had wanted to keep building work to a minimum but the suggestion to replace two existing windows with patio doors was something I hadn’t considered and really excited me; I was able to have a layout which otherwise would not have been possible. Including a few of my own ideas and tweaking the design was no problem to Julie and Emma who could not have been more accommodating. Further adaptations were made after building work commenced, the opening of a bricked-up fireplace provided the opportunity to install more storage units and an area to house the coffee machine and toaster.
Many cups of coffee and meetings later, the kitchen was installed by their own fitters who were not only a pleasure to have around but extremely clean and tidy. Two of my favourite elements of the design are the Quooker boiling tap and the Bora glass induction hob with integrated extractor both of which enabled me to achieve the sleek and uncluttered look I desired.
Having to apply for planning permission delayed the project but the extra time and cost incurred was definitely worth it, the outcome being a much more pleasant and sociable space which gives access to what was a little used area of the garden.
An added bonus of working with ArtHouse was that through their contacts I was able to sell my old kitchen thereby helping to reduce my carbon footprint.
For a kitchen that stands the test of time, I have no hesitation in recommending Siematic at ArtHouse Creative Interiors, a truly professional company.
We were completing a large renovation project on a barn conversion and had decided to upgrade to a contemporary kitchen. Having looked at various products and being a previous customer, we settled on a SieMatic kitchen due to its contemporary design, clean lines, precise engineering and our previous experience of its robustness and durability. We then started our search for a supplier and that is when we saw ArtHouse’s article in Cheshire Life. We had spoken with several SieMatic dealers but when we sat down with Julie and her team at ArtHouse in Alderley Edge we recognised that there was an immediate understanding of our needs and willingness to work with us and our budget to achieve the best possible outcome. There was no hard sell but a genuine desire to deliver a kitchen that would not only look stunning but meet all our practical requirements.
Julie and Emma took us through the design stage and then produced detailed drawings and 3D pictures to help bring the final design to life. The team than worked with our builders and contractors to provide detailed drawings and specifications so that all the services were correctly installed. Julie visited the site on several occasions to support the process and this proved invaluable, plus they were always at the end of the phone if any of our builders had a query. This service was included as part of their support.
Installation was timed to meet the building project delay and through good communication we were able to co-ordinate the installation to ensure delivery of the project in a timely fashion.
Installation by Paul was meticulous, and perfection was his watch word. A freezer damaged in transport was immediately re-ordered and replaced with no fuss. Once again Julie and her team oversaw the installation and visited the site before final sign off.
The final kitchen exceeded our expectation. SieMatic did not let us down and the quality of the units and the fittings are outstanding. The design that ArtHouse put together exceeded our expectation and every morning when we walk into the kitchen it feels like a dream come true.
We would not hesitate to recommend the ArtHouse team to our closest friends and family for every aspect of their service from initial design through to support for the contractors and finally the expert installation. Nothing was forgotten or missed out and we have a kitchen to die for at a price that was very competitive.
When we decided to build a new home we wanted to feel we created an environment, which made you feel good waking up each day. We worked tirelessly to find exceptional suppliers and sub-contractors who were innovative and delivered on their commitments.
Our kitchen and dining area are so important as we are passionate cooks and enjoy entertaining. We became saddened when 3 kitchen companies offered standard non-descript modules with no design thought. A friend of ours suggested contacting ArtHouse and they immediately listened to us and understood our needs.
They really make you feel you are not just another customer and work with a lot of pride and talent. They take care of all the tricky bits of integrating the equipment and services into the building, providing beautiful worktops, mirrors and lighting design. The installation was meticulous and nothing was too much trouble.
We used a professional Japanese chef to make a lunch for 24 people in the house recently and he said it was one of the best kitchens he had worked in!
We walk past the ArtHouse Creative Interiors showroom regularly as we live in the village, always admiring the kitchens on show from the window. When the time came for us to replace ours, they were the first studio we visited. ArtHouse set a high bar that others were unable to match.
Julie welcomed us into the showroom and instantly made us feel at ease. Discussing our drawings and working together created not just a practical, but a stylish kitchen which surpassed all our expectations.
The installation process went very smoothly and any little hiccups which unfortunately happen with any building work, were resolved swiftly and competently.
Our new kitchen is the hub of our home and a wonderful focal point to the house. Thank you, Julie and your team, for helping us create a fantastic home to start our family in.
Arthouse Creative Interiors have provided a seamless process from start to finish and made sure they go above and beyond to provide an outstanding service. From the very beginning, Chris has been extremely helpful and listened to every requirement we had.
The whole team are professional, efficient, and most importantly; reliable. The kitchen fitters were very respectful of our house and always kept it spotless where they could! We were always kept informed of each part of the process from the initial design to installation – this is where Arthouse Creative Interiors excel.
We are extremely pleased with the finished kitchen, and it has become the central hub of our home, where we spend all our time. I would highly recommend Arthouse Creative Interiors and the fantastic service they provide.
As we had previously experienced poor design and workmanship in our kitchen replacements over many years we asked Ian Scotland of C.Scotland Construction our local builder for his recommendation on kitchen companies. He had no hesitation in recommending ArtHouse because of their excellent performance on his contracts.
Because of COVID restrictions choosing furniture and appliances was very difficult but once we had seen Emma’s initial designs we decided to leave the whole thing to her. That was a very smart decision as we now have the kitchen of our dreams. All tradesmen were punctual efficient and talented and all timetables were met and the kitchen was completed under budget! The SieMatic units are perfect.
We have no hesitation in recommending Emma and the whole ArtHouse team to anyone who wants a dream kitchen.
We worked closely with Julie and found her Company to be reliable and trustworthy.
The kitchen supplied met our requirements very well and our requests were met with courtesy and good practice.
We particularly liked the overall design concept with a style which blended modern with the traditional barn conversion setting.
The work was carried out in a professional way and the snagging was efficient. We found the pricing of the kitchen to be reasonable, comparing well with products from other firms which we researched.
In summary we have no hesitation in recommending Arthouse to its prospective future customers.
I first came across ArtHouse in 2013 when I was moving to a new build in Alderley Edge. I was very pleased with the level of service, good communication and input throughout the project. I felt that we worked together to achieve the desired outcome, but were guided professionally throughout the process with regards to overall design.
On the strength of that experience, I decided to use ArtHouse again for another project. This was a renovation project, so I wanted a different feel to this kitchen. I am delighted with the outcome, and I feel that it really sets off the character of the house – a mix of more traditional looking units, but still contemporary with all ‘mod cons’! Again, I felt that we worked well together to achieve the correct outcome for the property, but were advised and guided throughout the project to ensure everything came together.
They have also been excellent following up any queries or issues that may have arisen, which allowed for peace of mind once the kitchen was complete.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them to my friends and would highly recommend ArtHouse to anybody. They really do make the daunting process of choosing a kitchen remarkably easy!
From our very first visit to ArtHouse & meeting with Emma, ArtHouse stood out from all other companies with regards to detail & design ideas. We desired a kitchen that would work for the family and as an entertaining space; ArtHouse gave us this and so much more.
To make a real ‘statement’ when walking into the kitchen, Emma designed a large 6m island, perfect for entertaining with a spacious breakfast bar and champagne trough. The main cooking zone is positioned to the back of the island with easy access to the main ovens and existing Sub Zero fridge/freezer. We decided on a Bora Basic hob to keep the ceiling free from an extractor fan which meant we could install pendant lighting across the whole island space.
Having previously had a SieMatic kitchen for 12 years, we knew the quality of the product and had a clear vision in terms of materials, specification and details with the design. With this in mind, Emma designed a beautiful drinks area as a focal point with under counter Miele wine cabinets, matching Neolith worktops and a statement book matched splash back; above is the gold bronze glass cabinets and feature lighting. This drinks area is positioned between the kitchen, new formal dining room and the informal lounge area to optimise functionality between the spaces.
The end result is a beautiful large & light airy space that is a pleasure to both work in & entertain. We would highly recommend ArtHouse Creative Interiors, due to their quality in material, design, installation and customer service.
Shaun & Lisa
We are absolutely thrilled with our new Siematic kitchen designed by Chris from Arthouse Creative Interiors. From the moment we started working on the project with Chris, Julie and the team, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with them. Chris turned around the design in an incredibly short timeframe, to ensure he could meet our timelines, and his design was very well thought through and met all of our requirements and more!
And Chris didn’t just design the kitchen, he designed the whole living space for us. The fitting of the kitchen is perfect and the installation team (Dan and Tom) were very thorough and professional throughout. They have created us an easy to use, gorgeous, showstopper of a kitchen that’s the heart of the house. My 10 year old daughter is loving learning to cook in it! We would highly recommend Siematic and Arthouse, and hope to work with them again in the future.
Dawn and James
With regards to our experience with Arthouse I would say that everything was very professionally handled, with all queries dealt with promptly and efficiently. From the initial viewing, through the subsequent arrangements for kitchen removal and then fitting here in Woodheath.
The kitchen fitters were excellent – taking a lot of time to get everything just right. Julie was always on hand to answers any questions and was very helpful in sourcing any extra kit we needed. The finished kitchen really does have the WOW factor and we couldn’t be happier with it. It’s a total dream to work in and provides both a working and entertaining space for the house.
We would definitely recommend Arthouse to our friends and acquaintances.
We are now enjoying our seventh year in our Siematic kitchen designed and fitted by Arthouse Creative Interiors.
It looks and feels as good now as it did on day one and we still absolutely love it. In the extremely rare event that something hasn’t functioned quite as it did or something has needed restoring aesthetically, the team at Arthouse has been fabulous in responding promptly and fully to address any concerns.
We’d highly recommend both Julie and the team and their products. We haven’t looked back!
Julie and Emma really are experts in their field. A visit to the showroom in Alderley Edge is a must, where you will receive a warm and friendly reception. You will immediately see what an eye they have for design, there is so much to look at and so many ideas so it won’t take long to find some initial inspiration.
The team really take time to understand what look and feel you are trying to achieve and what your budget is before they start the design process. Once the initial design is complete you will be invited to the showroom to view your design in 3D. This really does help visualise the room and any connecting spaces.
Nothing is too much trouble for the team as they work through any changes you require to ensure you end up with the perfect design.
Due to unforeseen circumstances regrettably, we were unable to progress to order and fitting however I know the whole process would have been seamless with Julie and Emma project managing.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Arthouse Creative Interiors, you really couldn’t be looked after any better and by such experienced professionals. I sincerely hope I will have the opportunity to work with Arthouse again at some point in the future.
Arthouse Creative Interiors were recommended by a family member after discussing how difficult it was in getting a kitchen design which, we felt, met our needs. We met with Julie who immediately set us on the right track with the optimum kitchen layout and also gave us some really useful guidance of how the kitchen layout was best aligned with the wider living and dining space we were creating with our home improvement project. The professional 3-D graphics soon became reality and we now have a modern kitchen we are delighted with.
When our friends first visit the comment is “Wow!” as the kitchen makes such an impact in our new open plan kitchen, living, dining space. Based on our experience, we would certainly recommend Julie, Chris, Emma and the team in helping to create your dream kitchen. Thanks again for your advice and assistance throughout the project.
When we first moved in to our home 20 years ago, we chose a Siematic kitchen and although it was still in good condition, we wanted to modernise the kitchen and update the layout to better suit our needs.
We visited Arthouse Creative Interiors showroom in Alderley Edge where we met Emma for the first time, she was incredibly helpful and arranged to look at the existing kitchen space and to discuss our requirements. Emma then put together an initial design along with several options on the various worktops, cupboard fronts, accessories and prices. Our new kitchen design has exceeded our expectations. It is simple, spacious and beautiful. On a practical level, it has met all our needs, but from a design point of view it has united the adjoining spaces.
We were determined not to rush in and gave ourselves time to consider the options and make sure we were focussing our budget on things that would really make a difference. We did go and look at other kitchen options, but none of them compared to the build quality of the Siematic units and we didn’t want to compromise on quality, especially on something we would be using every day.
Emma was great in working through solutions, such as the lighting under the wall units above the hob. I wanted this to be a continuous light. So having originally proposed a conventional hob and extractor above, we changed to a Bora hob with an inbuilt extractor fan. I love the way the light has got 3 dimmer settings and also warmth levels can be adjusted.
We wanted to recycle our old kitchen, so Arthouse put us in touch with Kitchen Exchange. They were great to deal with and we did successfully sell the old kitchen.
The installation went smoothly, the kitchen fitter Dan and his colleague Tom from D & B Joinery were possibly the tidiest contractors we have ever had do any work for us. They were meticulous and minimised the impact on the rest of the house. Although there were a few issues, and some minor challenges presented, Emma quickly dealt with them and the project was completed just before Christmas.
Emma and the Arthouse team were a joy to work with. They were considerable, knowledgeable and have offered a great service before during and after the installation, we would highly recommend them.
We are delighted with our new kitchen!
My husband and I bought a beautiful new home in Prestbury in August. We decided to put a brand new state of the art kitchen in which would need to be redesigned in able to accommodate our family.
We had the incredibly talented Jan Dickov working for us as an interior designer, she highly recommended ArtHouse Creative Interiors to design and fit our new SieMatic kitchen.
ArtHouse were great they had lots of beautiful SieMatic kitchens on display and various brands of appliances in their showroom.
We met Julie and arranged for her to pop over and see our existing kitchen so that she could look and work with the space available when designing our new one.
All designs were presented in 3D images on a slide show at the showroom and Julie ran through everything in great detail.
We were super excited and blown away by the designs, it all looked fantastic.
ArtHouse worked to our budget and project managed everything so that the entire process was as stress free as possible.
During the installation of our SieMatic kitchen everything ran so smoothly, Julie was on and off site making sure everything was perfect.
We are absolutely thrilled with our new SieMatic kitchen. It fits beautifully in our new home and is everything that we ever dreamt of.
We can’t thank ArtHouse Creative Interiors enough!
Art House Creative Interiors were fantastic from beginning to end with our kitchen project.
They were able to come up with solutions to the best use of space for our kitchen/dining room and were able to add to our existing kitchen improving the current layout but whilst maintaining the existing style and design.
They kept us informed during the whole process reworks schedule and payment.
Very easy to deal with and would highly recommend!
Recent kitchen refurbishment, Arthouse offered their design expertise, creative flair and installation skills. Throughout the process, the team were engaging, easy to work with and professional. I would highly recommend this company for any refurbishment work, in particular, Chris, Julie, Emma and Danny.
With a whole new build project taking place, this client wanted to ensure that their kitchen design would complement the open plan layout of the ground floor space. They originally visited ArtHouse Creative Interiors as they knew that they wanted a high-end German kitchen that would not only be contemporary and functional but also balance with the interior design of the space and it was important for ArtHouse to work with the interior designer throughout the design and installation process.
After visiting the showroom in Alderley Edge, the clients were surprised by the size of their studio and the stunning displays on show. It didn’t take long for them to disregard the other kitchen companies that they had looked at, as the level of detail and expertise that Julie and her team showed throughout the design process was exceptional.
Appliance choices can sometimes be a difficult decision to make and so the clients attended a couple of Miele cookery demonstrations at the showroom with Executive Chef, Sven-Hanson Britt who was not only able to give the clients a delicious 3 course tasting menu, but he was also able to demonstrate the appliances and answer any questions. This assisted on making the whole kitchen project more personal and assisted in ensuring that the appliance specifications were right for them.
Now that the whole project is completed, the clients are delighted with their new home and especially their new SieMatic kitchen as it is a perfect space for entertaining that complements the luxurious open plan living space which was a must for this family. They wouldn’t hesitate in recommending friends and family to go to ArtHouse for any future kitchen design projects.
When we initially started the process of looking at re designing our kitchen, we had been recommended and advised to visit ArtHouse Creative Interiors in Alderley Edge from friends who had a great experience with them; from the service, design details and after care. We were excitedly looking for a new kitchen but who were we to put our faith in to lead us through this process from start to finish as smoothly as possible?
During the initial planning stages, we were blown away by the National Award Winning showroom and knew that we had found the right company to complete our kitchen design. We felt the right ‘vibe’ from the start; ArtHouse had a very professional service all the way through the development. The computer aided design images that were created helped us envisage the whole transformation of the open plan living space that we were working with into the flawless kitchen we had hoped for that would complement the dining and living areas well.
During the kitchen design process, we had detailed meetings at the showroom where we were listened to, advised, reassured and lead through the kitchen design journey. The project management was overseen throughout from the building alteration stage with all the necessary working plans. Julie, Emma and the team were always on hand with a prompt response to any query, which was very reassuring when you are making such an important home investment. Also, ArtHouse highlighted other elements of the renovation that were separate from their kitchen installation that needed to be considered through preparation, installation and completion, to ensure that the whole outcome of the project would be to the highest standard.
We are delighted at what we consider to have been the right choice in Arthouse Creative Interiors and would recommend them without question to anyone looking to invest in a quality kitchen for their home. In return for our investment and trust in Arthouse we have received excellent service and guidance throughout, to make the project work both practically and aesthetically into our wonderful new kitchen.
We initially heard about ArtHouse through Boarhurst building company who had worked on various kitchen projects throughout the North West and assured us that Chris would come up with a contemporary and unique kitchen design which would provide a real “WOW” factor as people came in our new home.
We didn’t just want the standard kitchen that came with the house. We wanted a kitchen that would be a real talking point and to also be personally designed for our individual needs. We had been to various other kitchen company’s and we were beginning to lose heart with the designs that they were coming up with and it was like a breath of fresh air when we sat down with Chris! The design that he created made sure that we maximised the light and space of the room and ensured that all of the additional features complimented the rest of our house.
Throughout the design and installation process ArtHouse worked closely with our builders, ensuring that all necessary deadlines were met and that work was completed on time.
Key design details that we really like include; the way our Corian work surface flows seamlessly onto our dining table and the bronze mirrored base of the table gives the illusion of more space whilst also matching in with the bronze mirror which frames our main bank of tall units perfectly. We also love our stunning ceiling feature bulk head that not only looks fantastic but houses our white ceiling extractor and spot lights.
In regards to our appliances, we chose a white Miele oven, Steamer, Coffee machine Combi Microwave & warming drawer which are central to the design. We really don’t know what we did before we brought Miele into our home! The Quooker hot water tap in rose gold not only gives us constant boiling water but blends in flawlessly with all the tones of our lighting and accessories in the room.
We have already recommended friends to ArtHouse who have gone on to have their kitchen designed by them too. The kitchen is definitely our favourite room in the house where all the family spend most of their time a perfect functional design which has fulfilled our every need.
When I came to start the journey to have a new kitchen, I knew that I wanted the SieMatic product as I was used to the high quality furniture in my previous kitchen. I wanted to find an alternative SieMatic supplier to whom I had worked with in the past and we came across ArtHouse Creative Interiors. After an initial meeting at their stunning showroom, we didn’t consider looking anywhere else!
Julie proposed ideas that we hadn’t even thought of and after many meetings on site and in the showroom, she fully understood our brief, taking into account our taste and personalities that needed to be represented in the kitchen design. The layout and use of space was transformed on the design with walls removed and other walls added to make the whole ground floor flow. We knew that this was going to be an exciting journey, especially when we saw the photo realistic CAD images that showed the whole living space and how the kitchen, snug and dining areas were zoned and the separate utility room. Julie and her team listened intently to our brief and after a number of showroom meetings we knew that we had finalised the perfect design.
Julie oversaw all the installation process with the support of her team. There were a few issues that came up during the installation but these hitches were dealt with remarkably quickly and efficiently. It is a problematic industry but it’s the speed at which issues are dealt with that counts. Julie is an absolute professional!
Now that our kitchen is completed, we are blown away with our beautiful kitchen. It is an absolute joy to walk into the kitchen every morning and be greeted by our elegantly minimal design.
Julie’s knowledge of the industry is vast. Her guidance and clear understanding of her customers’ needs are always at the forefront of everything she does. This lady puts her heart and soul into the entire project, we couldn’t possibly imagine anyone other than Julie ever being able to undertake such a huge project like the one we had with Arthouse. We have already recommended ArtHouse to all of our friends and family who have been to our home since the kitchen was completed!
Our kitchen additions are fabulous and we are so pleased with them. The quality of the units, the correspondence from your team, keeping us up to date with the delivery schedule and installation schedule was excellent. I can’t express how delightful it was to have your fitter and his apprentice complete the installation, the care and cleanliness they portrayed was a pleasure. As you know we’ve had some builder issues with our home purchase and it was refreshing and installed faith back to us that there are people and companies who take huge pride in their products, workmanship and after-sales care.
Would not hesitate to recommend you!
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.
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!
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.
