Ella Austin Kitchens

Welcome to Ella Austin Kitchens. We are an independant company specialising in the design, manufacturing and installation of luxury bespoke kitchens in and around Surrey.

With over 20 years experience, we are a small, friendly team, with a strong background in kitchen & architectural design, joinery & general construction/property development. As a previous property developer, all property projects were always based around creating stunning open plan kitchen-dining areas – the true hub of the home and where any extension or new build should be based around.

Over the years, we’ve seen pretty much every type of kitchen there is and experienced the good and not so good. This ignited endless conversations about the quality of kitchens available on the market, and how we could do better ourselves. After years of gradual and extensive research into all aspects of manufacturing – including sourcing the finest materials, learning the most sturdy and reliable cabinet construction methods, and finding the very best cabinet makers for our installations.

We quickly realised that this dream we had fantasised about for years was actually within reach. We found we could supply a far better quality kitchen than available in the market using superior materials for the same price as our competitors, if not cheaper.

Whilst we’re not strictly a family business, we run the business on the same principles, and we continually strive to provide not only the finest products on the market, but also deliver superior customer service for the complete shopping experience. Our wives are involved behind the scenes and help out with their vital experience in marketing, interior design and photography, whilst adding that all important female finesse to everything we do!

We use industry leading CAD software to produce realistic high definition 3D designs and detailed plans and elevations, so you can really see what every inch and corner of your new kitchen will look like. The designs renders we produce are so realistic we regularly have customers asking if they are real life images.

With the Covid-19 lockdown meaning face-to-face client consultations were temporarily unavailable we decided we needed to expand our design presentation capabilities so we added a brand new feature to our design process, and we can now offer Virtual Reality “walkthroughs” of each proposed design, all included within our free design service package.
This has proven hugely popular with our clients so they can really get the best idea of the space and feel of their kitchen from the comfort of their sofa. View an example of a previous VR walkthrough by clicking the image below.

Hand-made Ella Austin Signature

We specialise in hand-made bespoke kitchens, all hand-crafted in our Surrey workshop just 30 minutes down the road.

Every Ella Austin Signature kitchen uses only the finest materials on the market and are lovingly hand-built to the very highest standards by experienced cabinet makers with impeccable attention to detail. You are in complete control of every aspect that goes into your Ella Austin Signature kitchen, therefore it’s not a case of picking a “range” from a catalogue of options – we will make anything you like, and our design team are on hand to offer guidance on everything from the most suitable timbers for your requirements, hardware selection, customisable decorative beadings for doors, cabinets, cornices, plinths, pelmets, as well as offering a stone hand selection service to choose your worktop, just to name a few.

Customise your internal cabinetry with what works for you.

    • Need deeper spice racks to keep larger items easily accessible on your doors?
    • Want to add laundry baskets to an integrated double washing machine/tumble dryer larder
    • Want to customise your internal shelves to keep long items such as ironing boards, brooms etc?
    • Would love a drinks larder/bar with integrated wine cooler, wine racks, shelf cutouts for your finest cut-glass flutes?

No problem, together we can design completely one-off bespoke cabinets to suit your requirements.

Choose from your favourite shades from any paint manufacturer, including the likes of Farrow & Ball, Little Greene, Mylands, Annie Sloan, Dulux, Johnstons, or even just give us a sample of your favourite scarf and we will colour match it. Once installed, it will be given a one last coat of paint by hand, on-site.

Ella Austin Catalogue Kitchens

As well as our signature hand-made kitchens, we also supply a huge selection of kitchens from our Catalogue Collection, to cater for any budget whilst constantly maintaining the highest quality across the range.

We’ve worked hard to source leading suppliers that can provide the level of quality to match our in-house hand-made kitchens, to enable us to offer the best kitchens on the market at the best prices. We’ve hand picked kitchens that can offer a huge choice of customisable options, industry leading design and quality. Kitchens range from traditional solid timber in-frame kitchens, lay-on shaker kitchens, plus ultra modern linear slab designs with true handleless options.

Every one of our kitchens are made to order, regardless of price, so you won’t find a warehouse full of stock we need to shift. Most are available with bespoke sizing options, customisable decorative door beadings, a huge range of painted finish options, as well as all the usual handles, sinks, taps, worktops, appliances and accessories across the board.

Take advantage of standard colour finishes for highly competitive pricing, and much quicker production times.

Materials & Finishing Touches

Choose from a huge range of handles and hardware – polished chrome, antique bronze, pewter, black, knurled, we have something available for every style and taste.

We offer an extensive range of worktops such as quartz, granite, marble, solid timber, corian and other solid surfaces, concrete, copper, stainless steel, and glass.

We work with leading brands such as Caesarstone, Silestone, Dekton, Cimstone, Radianz, Sapien Stone, Neolith, Ceralsio, just to name a few.

Our worktop fabricators currently operate a 5 working day turn-around to template, cut/polish and fit worktops and splashbacks, to ensure the entire kitchen installation process runs as smoothly as possible.

We are also able to offer micro-cement worktops – a relatively new, but incredibly versatile option. Benefit from continuous surfaces (no joints – option to cast sinks in one continuous run), great resistance to scratches and stains, low maintenance, adheres well to most substrates and is applied aprox. 4mm thick (so can easily create stylish thin worktops). There’s a huge range of textures and finishes to choose from, including poured concrete, liquid metal, venetian/polished plaster.

Time to deliver the dream

We could supply you with the best kitchen in the world – but when it comes to fitting it, all of that means nothing in the wrong hands. We’ve worked incredibly hard to find reliable installation partners that shares our philosophy for perfection. They’re not just kitchen installers, they are a team of highly skilled cabinet makers and carpenters that are also able to offer any associated services to create your dream space.

You’ll be assigned your own project manager so whether you need a bespoke cooker stack built, plastering, decorating, or plumbing and electrics, they can provide everything you need to ensure your new kitchen installation runs as smoothly as possible.

Plus we don’t make a penny from installations, we organise everything and you pay them direct, and we are safe in the knowledge that you are in the very best hands.

SOME OF THE BRANDS WE LIKE

 

Where are we?

We currently operate by word of mouth and recommendations, which enables us to work remotely without the large overheads, which in turn allows us to offer our clients the best prices. You may have also seen us at various homebuilding shows and exhibitions, which we occasionally take part in.

We appreciate that a kitchen is a big investment. It’s probably the biggest outlay in a new build or home renovation. It’s not a decision to be taken lightly, and we also appreciate that finding the right kitchen without seeing it in the flesh first can be off-putting. 

That’s why we go that extra mile to make sure you feel as happy and comfortable as possible with our products, services and processes. 

We always prefer to visit your home first anyway to survey the space, (although we are also more than happy to work from architectural plans) but also get to know you and together start brainstorming your dream kitchen ideas. We’ll then go away, work on the designs, produce some full size sample doors in your chosen style and finish, as well as arranging samples for worktops, cabinets, handles, and any other accessories required, then when we come back to present your designs, we’ll also bring along all related samples (similar to a mood board) so you can see how the actual door works up against the worktop, handles etc, plus feel the quality of our hinges and hardware.
This is also why we’ve invested in the industry’s leading KBB CAD software so we can generate super-realistic 3D designs in HD, and we can even walk you around your new kitchen via virtual reality whilst you’re sat on your sofa.

In the meantime we’d love to talk you through all our options, show you samples of what we can do, and discuss how we can turn your dream kitchen into reality.
