With the help of Indie Cambridge - the community of ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network resumes its exploration of the best independent businesses, people, shops, cafés, restaurants, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: Kitchensmiths in Histon.
Explore Indie Cambridge - Kitchensmiths
As the famous quote by William Morris states, “Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful and believe to beautiful” – and surely this must apply to the ‘heart’ of the home more than any other room – the kitchen. The sentiment of this quote is at the cornerstone of everything local award-winning indie Kitchensmiths stands for, with quality and reliability upmost in their work of designing and fitting the most stunning kitchens.
Kitchensmiths is a close-knit team of talented designers and skilled fitters, run by Martin Smith and his wife Debra. Martin, himself a fine craftsman by trade, started his working-life at 16 as an apprentice cabinetmaker before making the move to installing and then designing kitchens, so there isn’t much that he doesn’t know about crafting the finest kitchens. The company has been trading for 26 years, with much of that growth down to recommendations, which tells you a lot about how highly regarded they are.
Form and function, style and simplicity, practicality with a dash of showmanship are all elements that go in to each tailor-made kitchen. Long-standing partnerships with some of the best manufacturers in Europe such as German brands Rational and Störmer and English brand Stoneham, ensure a top-quality, stylish finish every time. Plus, a range of appliances from Gaggenau, Miele, Siemens & Neff with sinks, taps and work-tops from carefully selected suppliers completes the final look. Just pop along to their showroom to see for yourself.
Kitchensmiths is open...virtually
The team says: "Due to current COVID-19 guidelines, our showroom is closed to the public. However we are still open and working, and we look forward to showing you around our showroom virtually via Zoom, and as soon as we are safely able to re-open we would love to invite you in and show you our stunning range of displays.
"We are fully geared and ready to offer virtual appointments, utilising Zoom and our industry-leading CAD design software to create the kitchen of your dreams."
