Here are my thoughts about the kitchen you designed and built for us - how lucky we were to find you!
It was a leap of faith for you to take on this project so far from your home base. However it could not have worked out better especially for us.
We still marvel that all your measurements and calculations were so very accurate that when the kitchen arrived there was no need for any adjustments to the cabinetry.
Your advice on using drawers - all of which are super strong to carry the immense weight of cast iron pans - has made the whole place very ‘user friendly’. The linings in the cupboards are laminated plywood - again your suggestion and they give the cupboards a great finish along with the hand painted exteriors.
So we are wanting to show off this room to everyone who comes to the house. A HUGE THANK YOU to you and the team.

Thanks to Luke for helping us to have a fantastic new kitchen area specific to our personal tastes.
Our desire was to have a kitchen that is the hub of our home, that is comfortable for everyday life and also for entertaining. We wanted an area that is light, spacious and contemporary with clean lines and as much storage space as possible.
Luke guided us through the whole aspect from initial Architects floor plan stage, his design and drawings, any adaptions, then the making, final fitting and completion.
There were many different processes to go through as this was a major project for us involving a total restructure of our living space.
Luke is understanding to a clients ideas, he uses his knowledge and workmanship to make the process flow from the designing, to the making, to the finish and then fitting with care and attention. Luke liaised comfortably with all trades at each relevant stage of our project from beginning to end.
We now have an amazing bespoke kitchen area which combines everything that we were looking for, we are very proud and pleased to say that it was designed, made and fitted by Luke at Cherrywood Kitchens and Interiors, we cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work, patience and care.
We absolutely love it...

Luke turned our "back of an envelope" idea; into a practical and beautiful set of bookcases, expertly fitted into our wonky house, a work of skill and genius.

I approached Luke after seeing what a great job he had done for friends of ours.
From the start Luke was extremely professional and we were very impressed with the level of detail in his quote and drawings.
We were absolutely delighted with our wardrobes - Luke has done an amazing job (our house is very old with very uneven floors which doesn't make things easy!) Luke's level of workmanship and skill is first class and we would not hesitate to recommend him.

Good use of space is very important to me so I redesigned the dressing room I inherited after we bought our little cottage. The design gave my husband and I defined 'his and hers' storage areas, opened up the corners of the room, gave us drawers, dual height hanging space and shoe stroage. I just needed it built and installed. After scouring through a list of local joiners on the internet I came across Cherrywood. I looked at their website and liked their designs and installations so I gave them a call to pop round and quote the job.
Luke Cherry kept his appointment and turned up on time. After showing him the design and the room and despite the issues a small room in an old cottage could throw up, Luke seemed excited at the new project. He talked me through the quotation process, the staggered payment arrangements and explained the build and installation process.
I liked Luke immediately, he was engaged in the project from the start, which resulted in a beautifully made and professionally installed and finished dressing room.
Aside from being a highly skilled craftsman, I particularly like Luke's work ethic, it's fabulous. We suffered very little disruption thanks to his organisation and efficiency. He's a great communicator, updating us every step of the way on the build, fit and finish and he allayed all my fears and answered my endless list of questions on a daily basis with patience and ease. But even more than that, Luke went the extra mile and erected our fitted wardrobes in his workshop so that we could see it ahead of installation - truly wonderful service!!!
If I had another project, I wouldn't hesitate giving it to Luke and Cherrywood. I absolutely love my new dressing room and have showed it off to friends at every opportunity. I lived in it for at least a week after it was fully decorated, playing around with the space and just sitting there admiring it. Luke and Cherrywood brought my design to life with wonderful craftmanship, attention to detail and care. Thanks, Luke!
