Merge tradition with modern simplicity in a classic shaker style kitchen.
This new kitchen needed to feel at home in a 200 year old cottage and provide all of the modern solutions for a couple who love to cook. Pete and Dee gave us such a great testimonial we couldn’t resist sharing it with you.
The design took account of our thoughts and desires; to create a classic but functional kitchen in what is a (200 year old) 'traditional' cottage. The designer offered useful ideas without trying to push us in directions we did not want. We only required a small amount of fitted units - with traditional materials and designs - as the majority of the kitchen would be 'free standing'. The plans that we arrived at achieved this perfectly. They also included some lovely touches, such as granite splash-backs matching the work surfaces and (walnut) wooden inserts for the cutlery drawer. Installation took place efficiently, cleanly and within the expected timescale. The team of craftsmen were friendly and it was a pleasure to have them working on our kitchen. Also, they were all highly skilled in their trades - an important point that is managed and ensured by Milligan and Jessop. The outcome was a beautifully designed and well finished kitchen - exactly what we wanted. The kitchen was completed over 15 months ago and we have been using it extensively. (We both enjoy good food and like to cook.) Nevertheless, there is absolutely no evidence of wear and tear on anything and the kitchen looks like it was completed only yesterday - a testament to the quality of the materials and installation.
'Overall, although this project represented a significant investment, the execution and outcome were both excellent and represented great value for money. We would highly recommend Milligan and Jessop to anyone considering a new kitchen.'
