The kitchen is said to be the heart of the home – a place which binds the family together, where memories are made and dreams are created, where feuds are resolved and good news shared. Consequently for many of us, a kitchen has many uses, and it goes without saying that preparing food is only one of them
Many years ago most kitchens, although functional, were very often the least inspired part of any home with restrictions on size or content. These days however, this room is often one of the, if not the largest space in the house, as the kitchen has become multi-functional. This increase in both space and use has led to so many opportunities for both homeowners and kitchen designers and it is an opportunity often missed when buying purpose-built designs or off the peg varieties.
This is where choosing a kitchen designer with flair, vision and skill becomes paramount. For any designer, the ultimate is being able to stamp their own identity on a project. This makes every commission unique, every client’s wish taken into account, and every craftsman commissioned with a single aim: to create a kitchen that is a piece of art in itself.
Such a designer is Steven Andrews, who is Oxford-based but whose skills have made him the designer of choice for bespoke projects throughout the UK. Steven graduated with honours in transportation design and finely tuned the creative skills he had developed to establish himself quickly and firmly in the kitchen industry. Designing many interior spaces for discerning clients, from concept and project management to completion, Steven is still humbled by the results of seeing his ideas go from the drawing board to the workshop. As he told OX Magazine, “My motivation is to create beautiful working spaces for each client. Everyone is different and I strive to help inspire everyone I meet.
