Kestrel Kitchens has been creating handmade kitchens in Norfolk for 30 years. It is has completed more than 6,000 kitchen transformations – each designed individually and crafted in the county.

Today’s modish kitchens have curved worktops, island units, LED lighting, glass splashbacks, high-gloss soft-close handleless doors, hot taps and energy-saving appliances, but back in 1986, when the company was launched, the most important must-haves were built-in ovens and gas hobs. Dishwashers were also the height of luxury.

“The introduction of the built-in dishwasher was something that really set kitchens apart!” says Edward Hill, of Kestrel Kitchens.

Kestrel fitters have created kitchens in a huge range of homes during the past 30 years. Some of the more unusual projects include a circular kitchen for a windmill, a kitchen made from 70-year-old railway sleepers, a large island unit designed to mimic the waves for a seafront home, a kitchen sparkling with gold leaf, and a his and hers kitchen with two sinks and two preparation areas.

“A Kestrel kitchen is designed to the specific requirements of each customer by one of our highly trained designers,” says Edward. “Listening to the customer and gaining an understanding of not only how they want their kitchen to look but also how they want to interact with it allows us to design and manufacture a kitchen that meets all of their needs and is completely personal to them.”

While the company specialises in kitchens, it can also fit out bedrooms, offices, bathrooms and utility rooms, using the same mix of individual design and handcrafted fittings.

Based near Norwich, its first showroom was in Barnham Broom before it relocated first to Horsham St Faith, and then to Great Plumstead. Here, state-of-the-art showrooms reveal the kind of kitchens which can be created by the craftsmen and women in the nearby factory workshop. As Kestrel designers specialise in translating customers’ requests into stunning kitchens, making the very best use of the space available, every kitchen commissioned is unique.

“There are so many choices today and we are proud to be able to cater for everyone’s taste and style,” says Edward.
