I feel that I’ve got a kitchen that’s been designed especially for me. Like the mirror splashback; I can be washing up and still see what’s going on around me and behind me in the garden. It’s not like standing facing a wall, you can still speak with people and you feel part of the room. When you’re sitting at the breakfast bar, the kitchen looks twice the size because you can see the reflection all the way back through to the garden. It’s really clever and there are fantastic pictures at different times of day. And it makes the room look huge. It’s very exciting.Hatton Park, Warwickshire
We like to be together as a family, and the kitchen gives us lots of areas to sit and do. I feel a bit sorry for the rest of the house, it’s become a bit redundant. And I’d always wanted a kitchen island, it’s the perfect spot to sit and chat with friends while cooking.Mrs H, Stratford Upon Avon
Bower Willis explained how they could move things around to work within what we had, rather than knock down walls to create more space. And they were right, we now have more space than ever.
I believe you get a better personal service when working with local companies; if there is a niggle, they can pop back and fix it straight away. But there was very very little that needed fixing, you couldn’t fault it. And I’ve never seen anyone work so quickly in all my life, no mess, they took away all the rubbish. I was expecting a load of work to do, but each day it was nice and clean and tidy. You couldn’t fault it. If anyone asked me where to get a kitchen done, I’d recommend them every time.Mr F, Shipston on Stour
We wanted a really social party kitchen that also worked as a professional catering space. We enjoy having friends over for dinner, and have a busy family life too. It made a difference that Angela is such a keen cook too; when you speak the same language and can communicate exactly what you need. There’s an extra level of understanding on how the room will be used. I still come down each morning and feel ‘wowed’ by it. I’d say the only downside is that we don’t use the rest of the house much anymore!Mr & Mrs M, Warwickshire
I love to cook, and Angela understands kitchens and designs from a cooks perspective. She’s also very good at understanding what people want from their kitchen. And having worked with her before, it would have been foolish to go anywhere else. It’s a cheerful room to work in, and very functional with everything easily at hand. It works!Mrs T, Wellesbourne
I’ve always had a dream of this open plan living space where you have kitchen, dining and somewhere to sit all together.
It’s a real party house, dinner parties, big gatherings, it’s great. Everyone stands around the island chatting and socialising and then moves to the table to eat. You’re never away from your guests even when you’re cooking or preparing, and you’re never in a different room, wondering what you’re missing. It’s a more inclusive feeling for the guests too.
And it’s not just me, my teenage daughter and my mum both say it’s a lovely space to be in, to work in and eat in. It feels like a holiday house!Mrs P, Leamington Spa
It was so helpful that Angela and Jeremy are passionate about cooking and understand the importance of functionality. They didn’t try to pigeon hole us into a standard design. Our new kitchen lends itself equally to intimate gathering as it does to large-scale celebrations.
We wanted the kitchen colour scheme to blend harmoniously with the décor of the rest of the house. At the time, Callerton had never offered a Farrow & Ball paint finish, so Jeremy personally undertook the task of managing the process to ensure this new combination was a success. The service really went above and beyond expectations.Mrs N, Henley in Arden
We went all over the place. London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Oxford, and just couldn’t find anything that we liked. But as soon as we walked into the Bower WIllis showroom and saw the Zebrano, we said “that’s it!” Angela and Jeremy understood what we wanted straight away.Mrs C, Stratford on Avon
Angela listened to how the kitchen would be used and made suggestions about the seating area. Now the kitchen is somewhere the whole family like to eat. It’s made life much easier.Jim and Linda
The fitter was amazing, and made practical suggestions such as changing the positions of handles, even though it made his life harder. He made the kitchen work.Jane Linforth
After a hard day, we really enjoy an evening meal in the new space. We rarely light the fire in the living room as I don’t want to leave the kitchen.Ali Grundy
Angela was able to suggest additional features which I wouldn’t have thought of myself. We now have a window seat, plus a chill out area with a sofa and TV. I love it! And so do my guests.Andrew Badham
Bower Willis designs have delivered not only outstanding service but a remodelled kitchen that is beyond our expectations.
The initial survey was an exciting and productive time. Angela excels as a designer and her ability to assess the potential of a space and interpret her client's needs is remarkable. I already had plenty of ideas of my own (having owned the kitchen for five years) however, Angela was creatively adding new suggestions to the discussion. Many of her ideas have had an immensely positive affect on the final results.
The ideas / designs are implemented by craftsmen. I cannot speak highly enough of the workmanship and dedication of the fitters; Lucas in particular should receive a 'knighthood' for his attention to detail and untiring good humour.
We now have a kitchen with beautiful high quality appliances, an intelligent use of space and the finish associated with kitchens far far more expensive than the price paid to this remarkable company.Anne & Dave Alderson
