How did you select Hehku as your kitchen supplier?

A close friend recommended Hehku to us, even though their showrooms are a fair distance away from our address, they were extremely accommodating and did not hesitate to look at our plans and advise us on the right products to suit our designs. 

Why were you in the market for a new kitchen?

We moved to a new area and built a large detached home; the contemporary design and large open plan space required a kitchen with a “wow” factor. Part of our criteria was to ensure the internal kitchen cabinetry was made from the same solid ‘Wenge’ wood in keeping with the rest of our home, Hehku really raised the bar in terms of attention to detail throughout the whole design process.

Has your new space improved your lifestyle?

We have so much space for entertaining, plus our stunning Gaggenau appliances make everyday tasks so much more enjoyable. Our three dogs are often in and out of the garden so having a bespoke doggy shower designed by Hehku and fitted into our utility room makes life much easier and the dogs love it! The 3.2m seamless Island is a real show stopper and a space we can use daily.

What are your favourite features?

With so much to love it’s hard to pinpoint just a few favourite features. The concealed Butlers Drinks Pantry and breakfast station add real depth to our unique and timeless kitchen design, they are great focal points at our social gatherings.

Which? Trusted Trader Review - They understood exactly what I wanted

We decided to build a house and so I approached Hehku to plan, build and fit the kitchen. The overall design of the house is very contemporary so I knew I wanted the kitchen design to reflect this clean, sharp look. At our first meeting I took with me some magazines and books to illustrate my ideas and I was pleased that the designer seemed to understand very quickly the look I was after. We had a number of meetings and each time I felt Hehku were keen to ensure I got precisely the kitchen I wanted. I am an avid user of Pinterest and set up a number of boards that I then shared with my kitchen designer. These boards included lighting, floor finishes and appliances. This worked well and I would suggest this as a good tool for anyone planning a kitchen. The fitting of the kitchen went very smoothly. The fitters worked with my plumbers and electricians and I was particularly impressed with their standard of work, they were perfectionists. The end result is beautiful. It is just as I imagined and I am happy that a room we spend a lot of our time in has turned out so well. I spent a lot of time with the designer but never felt anything was a problem or too much trouble. They gave me plenty of advice too. From design to build to fitting they were a delight to work with. I am very happy! Rachel 24/10/2017
