Behind The Scene
Please view our video showcasing ‘How We Work’ at Blackstone Kitchens. Its an insight into our HQ based in Essex, United Kingdom. We manufacture of of our furniture in house so we can make any custom cabinetry.
Our design process starts by the client making an appointment with one our experienced designer in our Greenwich design studio. This will help us determine your wants and needs for your project. We work directly with your contractor when time comes to install your cabinetry. If you have any plans from your contractor or room dimensions we can then start to implement them into our new design software that allows us to give you a 3D experience and flawless visuals of your kitchen. We also have an exciting new virtual reality software that allows you to step inside your new kitchen. Speak with our designer to find out more about this new feature.
We also work with local stone companies to be able to source any counter tops needed for your project or any other areas of your home.
Once we have completed the initial preliminary design with initial changes to get to a level where you are satisfied, we can get you a formal quotation from our database software and further discuss the financial aspect of the project. For us to be able to design within your project budget we would need an indication of the this. Then after the initial design phase this will allow us to provide you with the formal quote to suit. This can be inclusive of cabinets, counter tops and installation.
Our flagship inset furniture ranges are made from solid Beech wood and is built using time honoured joinery methods. Our cabinet doors are set into hardwood frames and fixed with traditional butt hinges, creating strength and support enabling longevity and stability whilst maintaining a timeless look. Our latest Contemporary slab range is constructed with a high density composite board and hung between a 1.42″ (36mm) frame on soft closing hinges.
Our solid birch plywood cabinets are cut using state of the art beam saws and detailed using high tech digital CNC machinery to apply all of the necessary cabinet specification. All of our cabinets are hand assembled in our work shop in the United Kingdom before they get hand finished and shipped to our shop space in Greenwich. Our solid oak drawer boxes are dovetailed and work effortlessly on our Grass Dynapro soft closing drawer runners.
Our in house paint team finish each piece of furniture by hand using the intelligent water based eggshell from Little Greene Paint Co. All of our birch plywood cabinets are finished in our stock colour French Grey 163 and the doors and frames can be painted from our Little Greene colour range. All doors and frames are hand finished leaving a soft brush marks to the timber. Once the installation is complete our painting team come to site for final flash coating.
