Installing Bespoke Kitchens in Suffolk for 15 years

At Debenvale we have been designing and installing bespoke kitchens in Suffolk for 15 years. Styles and trends come and go but what we know is that having a well planned and well made kitchen is the key to creating a space you will enjoy for many years to come. 

Bespoke kitchens in Suffolk

For many, the kitchen is the hub of the home and if managed well, this multi-functional space can be an inviting social space for everyone to enjoy. A well designed kitchen will have a space for everything to be neatly organised and easily tidied away at the end of a busy day. 

A clever blend of cooking and dining zones creates a practical space that’s sociable too for the whole family to enjoy.

How to plan a kitchen you will love for years to come

How to plan a kitchen

At Debenvale we offer a free design service for our clients. But, if you are beginning your journey and thinking about a new kitchen then here’s some ideas on how to plan a kitchen to help you get started.

Whether you are planning a kitchen extension or changing the existing space, there are many factors to consider.  We have been offering kitchen design in Suffolk and East Anglia for 15 years. So, here’s a summary of some the aspects that you will need to consider when planning your kitchen.

What’s your lifestyle?

Its likely that you will spend a huge amount of time in your kitchen so its important to think carefully about what  you are looking to achieve. Be really honest about your lifestyle and how your kitchen needs to work for you. 

Are you regular entertainers? Do you need extra space that can cater for large family get together’s or social gatherings with friends? Think about dining table sizes, breakfast bars and seating requirements. Do you prefer eating at low level or high?

Are you planning to spend your evenings relaxing in the kitchen? If so you’ll need to create space for soft seating and if you are dreaming of an open plan kitchen you will need to be on top of clearing away after mealtimes! 

Do you have pets or a young family, if not now in the future perhaps? Whether you are a young family or busy grandparents you will need to use materials that are hard-wearing and will stand the test of time. Flooring and work surfaces in particular will need to be scratch and stain resistant so that your kitchen stays as good as new for many years to come.  

Your Home Style

Do you have a period property or modern home? Do you have existing features to enhance such as beams, period features or high ceilings. Your new kitchen needs to be in a style that suits your house and taste, whether traditional or modern.  Create a flow from room to room with furnishings and colours that compliment each other.  

Think about the style of kitchen that you are trying to achieve. Do some research, there are plenty of ideas in magazines and on websites like Pinterest and Houzz and you can collate your own ideas gallery on there. Or browse our project gallery for inspiration.

Door styles

Choosing your door style can be a great place to start. Shaker style kitchen doors are timeless and will suit both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs.

Flat doors can create a modern and clean look and can be completely free of handles and knobs. 

Do you prefer clean and straight edges or would you consider adding curves to your kitchen with curved doors or a social circular breakfast bar? 

Colours and finishes can be decided closer to the time but you will soon start to get a feel for your favourite colour pallets and what you works for you. A quality handmade kitchen will last for many years, and if you opt for hand-painted cabinetry you do have the option to alter the colour in the future.

Create a wish list

Put pen to paper and create a wish list that you can run through with your kitchen designer. Firstly, think about the essential appliances you must include.

Ovens and hobs

Your oven needs to suit your style of cooking and also compliment your kitchen design. Would you prefer high spec built in oven at eye height with slide and hide door or a feature free standing Range style cooker?

Do you prefer cooking on a gas or induction hob?


How much fridge and freezer space do you need? Is a single combination fridge freezer enough or do you need two separate models with full capacity in each?

American style fridge freezers can also include an ice-maker and chilled water. 


Are you a keen cook? Pantry units are great to keep all cooking ingredients organised in one area. You can also conceal toasters and neatly store breakfast cereals, plates and bowls in here.

felixstowe kitchen

Deep drawers are great for pots and and pans and there are many pull out storage systems available to provide easy access to hard to reach corners. Bespoke cutlery trays and dividers keep all your utensils in order and can be designed to your specific requirements.

If you love accessories and cook books you may want to include open shelving. Or make a feature by displaying your favourite home and glass wear pieces behind glass panel doors. 

Sinks and Taps

Sinks come in a variety of shapes and sizes from single to double or with a half size bowl for draining. And materials could be stainless steel, ceramic or composite sink in a colour to suit your scheme. Belfast sinks create a classic look and gives you a large capacity for soaking trays and pans. Rinse sinks can be a great addition to an island unit for rinsing and prepping.

Taps and handles come in a range of finishes and styles to suit. Brushed steel, polished chrome, aged brass and pewter are just some of the options available.   

Utility Area

Will you have a separate utility room or are you including washers and dryers within the kitchen? 

Optional Extras

And for those non essentials, but great additions, consider adding the luxury items that would complete your dream kitchen. Wine storage and cellars, drinks cabinets, coffee machines, an instant hot tap or waste disposal incinerators. TV and audio equipment will also need to be included in your planning.

Extensions and alterations

There is no doubt that a new kitchen is a big upheaval and, of all the rooms in your home, its likely to be the biggest expenditure.

This is your opportunity to add value to your home and ultimately get everything exactly as you want it so you can enjoy your kitchen for many years to come. So, after carefully considering your lifestyle and making your wish list you may need to make some alterations. Consider moving a door or a window if you need to. Or if you need to enhance the space consider extending externally or by knocking through some adjoining walls to really get what you want. 

At Debenvale we can undertake minor building works but for larger alterations you will need to consult a builder or architect.

Bi folding doors, orangeries and garden rooms create light and airy environments and make the most of outdoor spaces and pretty gardens.

Kitchen islands are simply great for extra workspace and storage and can often provide additional seating too. We love designing bespoke kitchen islands in all different shapes and styles using solid oak and quartztone or a blend of the two. But you will need adequate space all around.

Flooring & Worksurfaces

Your designer will advise on suitable flooring and worksurface options.

For a practical and stylish worktop, quartz stone is our best seller due to its hard wearing properties and with so many different colours and finishes it’s a great choice along with natural granite. Wood surfaces give a beautiful finish but be prepared for some future upkeep with a light sand and re-oil required. Corian, laminate and glass are all other options to discuss as possible alternatives.

Stone flooring is available in tiles of all shapes, sizes, colours and finishes to suit every style of kitchen. Porcelain flooring is a popular choice for kitchen floors as its low maintenance and resists wear even in areas of heavy footfall. Porcelain flooring can give the appearance of marble, stone or even wood. A thermostatic underfloor heating matt can be installed to gently warm the tiles beneath your feet.


Lighting is an important feature and your designer will work with you to create different moods and highlight specific areas. Consider low energy LED spot lights, under lighting on wall units, plinth lighting and pendant lighting over dining and prep areas.

Kitchen designer

A good kitchen designer will create a personal plan for tailored for you. They will include the basic kitchen design principles and create workable spaces for cooking, prepping and dining. But they will also take into account everything else you and your family needs from the space. An area for homeworking, relaxing in front of the TV or playing family games, whatever is important to you. 

There are many decisions to make and its important to work with an experienced designer that will guide you through the process offering technical advise and practical expertise. 

Debenvale can offer expert advice and take care of all aspects of the project, including plumbing, heating and electrics. For more extensive alterations we work alongside locals architects and building firms and can liaise directly with them on your behalf.

New year, new kitchen! But what are the Kitchen Design Trends for 2020?

Debenvale director, Andrew Southgate, has been designing luxury kitchens in East Anglia for 25 years.

So, as we reach the end of another year and look ahead to 2020, what are our predictions for the key kitchen design trends for 2020?

Colourful Kitchens

Shades of grey have dominated kitchens and other interiors over the past few years. It remains a popular choice and can be used in both contemporary kitchens and traditional style kitchens. The grey pallet has a vast range and is so easy to accessorise with.

We have seen a rise in using tones of blue. This is a great choice for adding depth and warmth to your kitchen.

However, many clients are now becoming bolder and experimenting with strong stand out colours in the kitchen such as green, yellow and pink. Last year we created a bespoke kitchen at a project in Ipswich using Little Greene Trumpet 196 and Delicate Blue 248 used on the kitchen cabinets.

More recently we made and installed a bottle green handpainted kitchen in Suffolk. Green is another colour tipped for next year. We see this trend for bold colour choices to continue to grow in 2020.  

We are so excited to explore these new colour choices with future clients. We provide several samples to help you make the right choice for your new kitchen.  

Dark and luxurious interiors

From the bathroom to the bedroom, clients are drawn towards the luxurious and atmospheric feel of deep and dark blues, blacks and greys. Adding texture, metals and statement tiles to complete the look.

By contrast, we are also seeing a greater choice of sanitaryware becoming available in pastel colours and shades. A modern alternative to the traditional white sanitaryware.

Energy efficiency

The focus on sustainable products is an ever growing factor in all industries. The importance of not only using energy efficient appliances and products but also the choice of materials being used in and around the home is becoming a key factor.

Smart Homes

Market leading kitchen appliance brands such as Miele and Neff have developed their products with the ability to communicate with each other and be remotely controlled. And, with the constant advances in technology, this is an area that will be constantly improved to add  even more convenience and ease to our busy lifestyles.

Designer Handles

There is so much more choice now with kitchen handles. You can really make a inpact in your kitchen with an impressive designer kitchen handle.

Knobs, T Bars, Cup handles and pulls come in all shapes and sizes in a range of finishes including brass, nickle, bronze, black or even leather or fabric.  We work with many bespoke handle manufacturers and have many examples in our showroom. Or we can source samples of your personal choice of handle.

No Obligation Design Service

At Debenvale, we design luxury kitchens in East Anglia and provide a free no obligation design service.

We are an authorised kitchen appliance dealer in Suffolk and work alongside market leading brands including Quooker, Rangemaster, Franke, Kohler, Perrin and Rowe and many more.

Simply call into our showroom to chat about the kitchen design trends for 2020 and how to create your dream kitchen.

Case Study: Bespoke Fitted Kitchen in Felixstowe

At Debenvale we specialise in quality fitted kitchens in Suffolk and the surrounding East Anglian counties. This week we were delighted to visit one of our clients to take a look at their completed bespoke fitted kitchen in Felixstowe.

Luxury Fitted Kitchen in Felixstowe

Personal Kitchen Design

Our client was looking for a modern kitchen designed for a rear extension of their home with an open plan feel.

Contemporary Kitchen Style

At our kitchen showroom our client was drawn to one of latest displays featuring a sleek handleless kitchen door with an ‘L’ profile hidden handle. This particular design is unique as it works well with a two tone effect, allowing you integrate a contrasting colour or material such as oak, metal or glass to your kitchen cabinets.

Our client chose a graphite grey which themed throughout the kitchen and on the insides of the kitchen cabinets too.

Open Plan Living

Luxury Kitchen Features

This luxury kitchen in Felixstowe is packed with the latest technology and appliances.

Central Kitchen Island Unit 

A central island unit was essential for cooking, dining and entertaining. A Neff induction hob and powerful downdraft extractor fan sits seamlessly out of sight within the island when not in use. 


Smart Storage Solutions

The space on the back wall was maximised with a tall bank of units to house 3 Neff ovens and spacious pan drawers. Our solid drawers  take heavy loads of up to 40kg with high quality runners and soft close features.

We included some surface area for prep with contemporary bi fold wall units above and a neatly concealed wine storage area. All with the complimenting graphite grey internal finish.

Worktop, Sink and Tap

Luxury Quartzstone surfaces fitted throughout provide a practical and hardwearing surface with a little sparkle for a touch of glamour!

A Quooker tap gives instant filtered and boiling water from morning through to night and sits stylishly above the designer solid stainless steel sink by Kohler.


Our Client’s Comments

“From our initial enquiry, it took only a week for plans to be drawn with suggested layout of the kitchen and only one item needed changing, which was the location of the wine rack. We were then able to discuss and choose appliances and placed an order straight away.

Andrew then visited the site when we had reached a stage for him to physically take accurate measurements and manufacture our kitchen. The workmanship was to an exceptionally high standard and the finished product has exceeded our expectations.

Friends and family have all been impressed with both the design and the finish and I would certainly recommend Debenvale without hesitation.”

We’re not just about kitchens! A handmade furniture in Suffolk project featuring a floor to ceiling library wall and ladder

At Debenvale we are not just about Kitchens, we also design beautiful cabinetry for living rooms, studies and ancillary rooms around your home. We are passionate about providing practical solutions by creating well designed and quality handmade furniture in suffolk and surrounding areas. 

Library wall project in Suffolk

One of our valued clients was looking for a library style wall from the floor to ceiling to display and store their treasured books, trophies, record collections and more.  So we set out to create a design completely made to measure to their personal requirements, including a movable rolling ladder for ease of access to all shelves. 


Practical design process 

Once the design process was complete and our client happy with our design, the plans and specifications were handed across to our skilled cabinet makers who bring the design to life using high quality raw materials and solid woods. Our team of cabinet makers bring together decades of experience and take great pride in their work ensuring that each and every piece of furniture we produce is of the highest standard for our clients.

Fully manufactured at Debenvale

When the woodworking elements are completed, the furniture is then carefully finished in our onsite finishing booth with lacquer to bring out and protect the fine quality of the Oak used in this piece of furniture.

We are proud of our people and our product

At Debenvale we have a long standing team of professional bespoke furniture installers. Our friendly and trustworthy team take great and respect while working at our customers homes, keeping working areas clean and tidy and ensuring our customers feel at ease while they are working in their home.
