Made in Britain

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Thursday, 27th August 2015

There are many reasons to choose Rangemaster, the world’s oldest cooker manufacturer. One of which is its heritage and the fact that their range cookers are still made in Royal Leamington Spa, 181 years after the very first Kitchener was created in 1830. To celebrate the very best of British, this month we take a look at some of the kitchen industry’s leading UK designs with something for every style and budget…



A multi-award winning British design and manufacturing company, Roundhouse creates bespoke kitchens as well as other furniture. Made up of independent British designers, architects and craftspeople, their approach embraces the house, the home and the whole creative process from concept to completion. All furniture is made to order at its own factory in Malvern, an area with a long heritage associated with furniture making.

With 25 years experience in the bag, deVOL has grown from humble beginnings to become a renowned design-led manufacturer of bespoke kitchens, designed and built in Leicestershire. In 2012 the company bought a historic 16th century water mill on the banks of the River Soar and the showroom now covers four floors displaying Shaker styles and an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, gifts and homewares.
