Even though we design and sell both German and British kitchens and interiors, we are still a patriotic bunch here at Beau-Port. We love working with British craftsmen and we have formed close links with some of the very best in the business, who are all based in our green and pleasant land. We are also very choosy about who we will work with and trust with our bespoke designs as we always want to be better than the competition! Our Shaker style and traditional kitchens are not only handcrafted by our talented team of expert cabinet makers but are also installed by the very same craftsmen who have turned our designs into reality.
We all have a passion for what we do and enjoy the process of seeing a kitchen or interiors project evolve from first ideas — ours and crucially the client’s own ideas — into the final finished and perfect project. We also get a huge buzz from the client feedback we get and can boast that it is always positive — so much so that many of our clients call us back to do further projects in their homes, usually starting with a kitchen then moving onto projects in the bedrooms, living areas, laundry and boot rooms and more recently with our media centre designs which sit well in open plan living/dining/kitchen areas or some clients prefer to have their own separate media rooms — these can be either bespoke British made designs or contemporary German furniture, handcrafted by Rotpunkt, a leading name in fitted high-end cutting edge modern furniture.
Our best of British also extends to the independent standalone pantries we have recently designed. A great idea for those who want a bit of extra storage space in or close to their kitchens. As a separate piece of fine furniture they have the additional benefit of being able to go with you should you decide to move home. We see these pieces of furniture as the heirlooms of the future, to be handed down from generation to generation.
We can also alter these and customize them for use in other areas of the home — as a bed linen store — the French would call them an armoire and the old-fashioned name for them in Britain used to be ‘linen press’. A great place to store all the bed linen, towels, table cloths etc.
Another area we enjoy working in is the creation of bespoke individual pieces of furniture to go with a kitchen project, a specially designed dining table, or console table — all British designed and hand crafted to the client’s specifications.
Our 2000 sq. ft. showrooms at Bentworth, Hampshire – close to Alton and just off the road to Basingstoke which is approximately 8 miles away, currently houses a range of full-scale kitchens and interiors displays including our new AGA kitchen display. You can’t get more British than an AGA – the epitome of British style and has been part of our culture for generations.
Our Patterdale terrier cross Ted, a vital part of our team and again a very British breed, seems to favour this part of the showroom and we often find him loitering close to the Total Control AGA, especially when it is on in the winter months. We couldn’t resist taking this picture of him by the AGA and how beautifully he colour coordinated with the entire kitchen – except of course the Heather signature colour AGA!
Ted and the rest of the team would be delighted to chat with you over a coffee around the AGA and explore your vision for your dream kitchen or interiors project that we can help you turn into a reality.
