We work with you for the perfect result

When working on a commission, Dylan will work with you to turn your concepts into designs.  Alternatively, he will work with scales design plans produced by your architect or interior designer.  Dylan places particular emphasis on ensuring that you as the client are consulted and involved in the project to the extent that you would like.

Dylan Russell work in many types of wood depending on the effect you would like to achieve.  This could include anything from MDF and wood for a painted kitchen to oak or ash if the wood is to be more of a feature. It might also include metal and glass.  You might want for example, a lovely oak work top or handsome ash wardrobes; mirrored doors or metal ironmongery.

With Dylan’s boat building background, he is used to being creative with space and will ensure that he maximises the possibilities of your design.

Once plans are agreed, work begins at the workshop.  Clients are welcome and encouraged to come and see their commissions during the manufacturing process.

The final and key part of the process is fitting and finishing.  Dylan and his team have extremely high standards about the look and usability of the finished product and aim to amaze their customers.  Wobbly walls are a feature of old Cotswold homes and we have much experience in fitting to them.  We have some expert special effect painters and varnishers who ensure that your furniture stands out.

We are very experienced in working in with other trades during the fitting process including builders, plumbers, electricians and granite fitters.

Brief:  To create a light airy kitchen that took the emphasis off the narrow nature of the space.

Solution:

The first action was to turn the aga round so that it instead of sticking out into the area, it went with the lines of the room.  This automatically made a more open space and less narrow.  The aga then became part of the line with the window and sink.

To create a feeling of light and air, we used glass fronts to the wall units.  The kitchen was painted beautiful blue.

The client was keen on both larder and wine storage.  We created a large pull out larder in the centre of the unit run.  We found a bit of dead space at the top of the units which made a perfect storage area for wine.

Brief:  To create a country kitchen in large space

Solution

Although the kitchen was a large space, it was restricted by the fact that the room is used as a walk through and that there is an open fire on one side of the room.  There was also a big table in the middle of the room.  We therefore had to make the kitchen in an L shape, along the window wall and by the aga.

The client was very keen on a large extraction unit.  We designed a fake chimney breast to cover this.  This also incorporated some secret cupboards for spice racks.

To create the country kitchen feel, we made wooden worktops with integrated draining rack.
