Design Process

More Than Just a Kitchen

Kitchens have become focal points and are now the heart of many homes. Your kitchen might be where you cook as a family, have coffee with friends, entertain on special occasions or routinely find yourself perched on a stool with a cup of tea or glass of wine to unwind and share stories after a busy day.

Whatever your kitchen means to you, it is important that it not only looks beautiful but is also functional and perfectly suits your needs.

For many people, even the mere thought of designing and purchasing a new kitchen can be daunting, but the whole process doesn’t have to be stressful and intimidating – we want it to be an enjoyable task, something you can get excited about, knowing you are in good hands.

Your Dream Kitchen

We know a new kitchen is a big investment and it has to be right, so we will work with you to create your dream kitchen, exploring different options and ideas until everything is perfect. You will receive images of what your new kitchen might look like so you can see your ideas brought to life and what’s even better is our design service doesn’t cost you a penny.

We work alongside you in good faith and want you to be so thrilled with your experience, our service and our product, that you choose us because of who we are and what we offer.

Should you wish to, you will be able to visit our workshop to see your kitchen being built and follow its progress as it is transformed from the raw materials into the beautiful, finished product.

Our workshop team are very skilful and really know their stuff. So, if you have ideas for an original piece or more unusual element of your kitchen and would like to see if it can be incorporated, you will be welcome to discuss it directly with the team that would make it. They will work with you to come up with something unique – and not many companies can say they offer that truly personal approach.

Finishing Touches

We are happy to advise you on and help you source worktops, appliances and other finishing touches for your kitchen to help the process run smoothly.

We have established great relationships with a number of trusted local suppliers that will provide you with choice, value and professional installation services where necessary. We are certain you will find their prices competitive and their teams friendly and knowledgeable.

However, should you have something specific in mind, you are welcome to choose your own suppliers and we will be happy to work alongside them too.


There are so many variables that affect the price of a kitchen. A kitchen with lots of drawers, clever storage solutions and intricate detailing will cost significantly more than if the same size kitchen had more cupboards than drawers and simpler features.

A St Cross Kitchen will always cost more than a kitchen from any of the well-known mass-produced kitchen manufacturers. This is because each St Cross Kitchen cabinet is designed to the precise millimetre and made locally by genuine, talented craftsmen.

The personal and flexible service that we offer, along with our beautiful bespoke cabinetry simply does not compare to the service and product you would receive by using an ‘off the shelf’ ready-made kitchen company.

We are often asked about "the rough cost" of one of our kitchens, and while we never like to guess, on average our kitchen cabinetry starts from around £14,000 for a simple kitchen but can reach anywhere in the region of £40,000 - £50,000 or beyond for a larger, more complex space. The possibilities are quite endless depending on your imagination and how much you decide to invest in a new kitchen.

We would be delighted to discuss your requirements and ideas for your new kitchen and work with you to create a beautiful kitchen that works within your desired budget. We can also advise on changes to the design that could make some savings to keep your budget on track if required.
