The Art of Kitchen Design

Collins Bespoke can help you create your very own dream kitchen with stylish ideas from layout to storage solutions.

Back in the summer of 2019, Collins Bespoke began work on their biggest project to date – the brand new Surrenden Manor Showroom – which has now, proudly, opened its doors. With owner and director Nick Collins’ creative vision and the hard work from him and the team, the building has transformed from old offices, to an empty shell and rubble, into a beautiful showroom that’s ready to inspire. A showroom which they are really proud of.

Nick began working as an apprentice for Kent-based rocking horse makers, Stevenson Brothers, in 1994. In 2001, he took a large leap into self-employment, where he started designing and making bespoke cabinetry and joinery from a small garden-based workshop. Demand for his work grew and Nick began working in a partnership and took on his first apprentice. Gradually, his team flourished and they moved into Old Surrenden Manor’s industrial estate. Over the past eight years, Nick and his team have worked in a number of different premises on the estate, finally moving into the largest – The Surrenden Manor Showroom – this year. Within those years, he and his team established Collins Bespoke, where craftsmanship has been nurtured, refined and shared.

Surrenden Manor is home to three popular kitchen styles, plus a beautiful boot room and pantry, too!

With its pretty clean lines and simplicity, customers are greeted by a bright and modest Shaker kitchen. The natural light makes it the ideal spot to soak up inspiration and discuss exciting new projects. Next, step through into the luxurious Beaded-Shaker. Its finer detail and intricate mouldings break slightly from the Shaker’s modesty, adding grandeur and opulence to the showroom. And, if your heart is set on something a little different, Collins Bespoke’s impressive Distinguished Collection is for you. The vibrant style brings a contemporary twist to the more traditional designs, adding a fresh modern element to Surrenden Manor.

With the workshop right next door, you can actually see the kitchens being made, too!

Collins Bespoke work with spaces – and, are inspired by them. Unique rooms, focal points, unusual spaces – their kitchens are far from standardised. No set designs – each kitchen totally unique to its owner. Which really is what makes Collins Bespoke different, and – that extra bit more special. Custom-made cabinetry: kitchens – ready to entertain family life, whilst being one of a kind.

Collins Bespoke is a Kent-based and Kent-bred family-owned and run business, working throughout Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London. The Surrenden Manor Showroom and workshop can be found just outside Ashford, Old Surrenden Manor, Bethersden, TN26 3DL, where they always have good coffee.
