Understanding your needs
We believe service and support is crucial to achieving a successful project. We take time to focus on each client’s individual needs and requirements, often this involves a visit to our workshop to meet our production team and discuss the details of your furniture.
Watch our NEW video on how we do it. An insight into Blackstone Kitchens.
Our philosophy is to offer handmade kitchens and furniture with great service and value for money. We have a dedicated team who work on a one to one basis with each of our clients, with showrooms based in Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and now on the east coast of American in Greenwich Connecticut.
We offer many different types of furniture packages, including bespoke kitchens and our modular kitchen range where you can create the perfect kitchen based on any design. Our fully fitted handmade modular kitchens range from £12,500 to £30,000.
We pride ourselves on quality and durability. All of our cabinets are constructed by hand from European birch plywood which is sanded and then hand painted.
Blackstone’s framed furniture is made from solid hardwood and is built using traditional construction methods, our doors are set into hardwood frames and fixed with butt hinges, creating strength and support enabling longevity and stability whilst maintaining a timeless look.
We have vast experience in working within period and listed homes where standard kitchens just wouldn’t work. We also understand the pitfalls to avoid, and what makes a project run successfully.
Full HD Quality CAD Designs
Conception to Completion
All kitchens should have a blend of practicality and aesthetic design, we aspire to achieve this during the planning stages. We have our head office in Earls Colne, Essex; our creative process can start here, or within the comfort of your home where we can discuss initial ideas and designs working within your room dimensions.
Once we have your initial design brief we can provide you with a guide price for your project. Full HD computer generated images are provided for your approval enabling us to generate a full quotation.
The Blackstone Complete Service
We understand that communication is key from the initial consultation to the final completion. We will guide you throughout the complete process.
Once you become a Blackstone client we assign an account manager to project, they will guide you through the process helping you with additional requirements and decisions from work surface options to handle choices. Your account manager will communicate with you regarding payment stages, survey dates and production time scales.
A full site survey will be carried out prior to production of the furniture, at this point we would liaise with any other trades involved to plan project requirements and time frames etc. Once the site survey is completed a full set of technical plans are produced and sent to our workshop to commence production, from this point we need a minimum 8 weeks for production.
Your installation manager will carry out a site inspection a few days prior to the delivery date to ensure the site is ready for commencement of your installation.
The Production Team
Our workshop is located in Earls Colne, a small town in the heart of Essex, and is managed by a team of highly experienced cabinet makers and joiners. Having our own workshop enables us to monitor quality and control, manage delivery dates and time scales and gives us the flexibility to adapt to any special requirements. If you would like a tour of our workshop and get an insight into what we do please book a meeting with one of our design team today.
