As unfashionable as it may be, we are a team that believes in good old fashioned personal service.
We work in country houses of all sizes, from cottages to manor houses. We love the variety of our client’s homes, and we believe that for back of house domestic spaces to perform to their fullest, they are best created by designers with experience of life. After 20 years, we have that in abundance.
The rooms we create are there to be used. To be there for your family’s journey. To be dented, scuffed and enriched with the hallmarks of daily life. To tell stories. And, after a few years perhaps, given a fresh coat of paint ready for the next generation to enjoy.
Designing good value, beautiful and high functioning environments for families to thrive in requires a highly collaborative approach between us. It also requires trust. Through enthusiasm, curiosity, collaborating closely with you, caring deeply about your project and communicating clearly, we can create wonderful kitchens and domestic spaces which will be a joy to live in for a lifetime.
We design and make bespoke handmade kitchens, pantries, sculleries and boot rooms. We work across Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and sometimes further afield.
Most of our kitchens cost between £60,000 and £120,000 (includes VAT, appliances, fitting etc)
"It is a lovely big kitchen where I could choose all the things I wanted. There is a large island unit, an area for dining, and an Aga of course, but also a Miele for testing recipes. I worked with Nick Anderson and he was absolutely brilliant. I could not recommend anyone more. We worked together and it took a long time, but it was done beautifully."
My mission is simple: I am absolutely passionate about designing bespoke handmade kitchens and furniture for country houses. We work everyday, hand in hand with other professionals, to advise the best use of space and layout to achieve designs which accommodate modern living while respecting the proportions and character of our client’s homes. Guild Anderson designs and makes handmade kitchens and domestic back of house spaces which look like they have always been part of the house.
"The fact that over 80% of our kitchen projects are obtained by recommendation or repeat business speaks for itself."
"What we liked the most about Guild Anderson is that they are open to trying new things out. Commissioning a kitchen or piece of furniture is very personal - some people want to buy off the shelf , others see it as a journey, they want to collaborate and be involved. We love the end result: our kitchen is modernity with soul. It is very warm and tactile"
"Guild Anderson are designers that happen to make furniture - they are interior furniture designers. They go so far above and beyond with the level of service they deliver, it is hard to describe what they do for people. The added value becomes clear to my clients so I have no hesitation in recommending Guild Anderson, knowing they will be well looked after. Moreover they provide the same care and attention that we deliver to our clients"
"Our new kitchen has been well worth it and will be here long after we are. The bespoke design is brilliant - we love the different elements, the island, the larder cupboard and especially the chalk board and cookbook shelves. This is how to turn a compromised space into a feature. Guild Anderson is so creative and very good at taking the initiative.
