“I have been particularly delighted and impressed with the way that nothing is too much trouble for Ruach Kitchens! There were so many truly unique aspects to my kitchen, the team have approached every one of those unique challenges with a professional and efficient manner.

A few examples of which are:

  • The macassar ebony doors are not commercially available and had to be made uniquely for this kitchen – Ruach obliged.
  • I asked for a handle-less copper trim that I believed was discontinued – Ruach obliged!
  • I wanted to personally pick out the individual slab of granite to be used – Ruach obliged.
  • I wanted to use a decorative panel in a way never done before – Ruach researched and obliged.

There are many other examples too numerous to mention.”

‘My favourite feature of the kitchen is strangely – what is not there! I had originally envisaged having more cupboards and work surfaces. While discussing this with Violet, she said something, which has made a real impact on me, and has stayed with me since: “Space is a luxury” And she is right! Not only did I not need the extra cupboards and work surfaces (it reduced the cost also), but what I really appreciate, is the sense of openness. It allows one to experience a truly unique perception of space.’
