'Divine by Design' is our strapline and for good reason - inspirational design is at the heart of everything we do.
From the Hehku Home Extension Concept Centre, we work with you to create a detailed brief from which we will produce a stunning life like visualisation of your bespoke kitchen design. This includes a detailed plan, precise elevations and beautiful 3-D colour representations of your new kitchen. Our Hehku kitchen designers work with you to enhance and progress your design, inspiring the most creative and practical use of the space available.
You can be sure that your experience with Hehku will be a fulfilling, productive and an inspirational one. Take a look at the Hehku team of leading kitchen designers who will work alongside you on your project.
If you can't wait to meet with us to feel inspired, then start working on your kitchen designs right now using our ‘My Room Plan’ design tool at the bottom of this page. It will give you a flavour of your very own kitchen extension ideas and design options to consider prior to your Hehku kitchen design consultation.
If you’ve decided to embark on a standalone kitchen, or kitchen extension project, it’s likely you’ve already spent some time researching design ideas. You may have collected some inspiring photography or a wish list of appliances, or probably been overwhelmed by the choices available! We are on hand to help make sense of the detail, guiding you through the steps, from visualisation, design, to building your Hehku transformational living space.
Step 1 - The Fact Find, Wish List & Discussing your Requirements The purpose of our first consultation is to prepare a basic brief of your project requirements. We’ll help you learn about our kitchen styles, cabinetry, appliances, sinks, taps and kitchen work surfaces, attentively providing the advice needed to compile your wish list. We will then establish the intended scope of your project; are we working to your existing kitchen layout, extending, redesigning or moving the kitchen in its entirety? If you already have a budget in mind, then we can suggest what might be achieved within this - if you don’t, then the brief will help us give you an indication of the projected kitchen cost.
Step 2 - Home Visit & Creation of your Brief The next step is to meet you at home where we can advance to producing a detailed brief. We will carry out a full laser measured survey and guide you through a detailed interactive presentation to establish your exact requirements. At this stage we seek to understand what this living space means to you, we help you challenge how you use your kitchen and consider how the layout will make this a space that is functional yet enjoyable at the same time. This information provides the ingredients we need to move to the design stage.
REMEMBER - the earlier we get involved the better, even prior to planning permission. Our team of designers and surveyors are hugely experienced in all aspects of planning, and can tailor the perfect design for your home whilst being mindful of attaining planning consent.

The term ‘Modern kitchen’ can be thought of in two senses - one, in relation to advancements in technology and another in it’s linear designs, use of metals and chrome, and incorporating bold colours.
Hehku Cucina designers create ‘modern kitchens’ combining both of these traits, but also placing a huge emphasis on a third - the variety and type of materials we introduce. These include incredible plastic laminates, lacquers, stones, wood, stainless steel and glass. Simplicity is the norm, but Hehku Cucina bring you so much more.
The key difference between modern and contemporary design is the use of new technologies and materials. Today, this includes well known features such as LED lights, resins, flat screens and induction hobs, plus more bespoke subtleties like lit wooden panels, or back lit marble stones.
A contemporary kitchen can seem to have limitless boundaries from the almost infinite options available in terms of lighting, materials, appliances, colours or shape of surfaces. Hehku Contemporary kitchens are extremely exciting projects that can see you and your home explore new horizons.
A key element that clearly defines British identity is truly embracing tradition. However, we all perceive ‘tradition’ very differently… Within Hehku Cucina Kitchen design, ‘tradition’ is created through our precise blend of materials and styles - such as our choice of wood types, door styles, period brassware, sinks, and our introduction of age proven materials like stone. This can also include more subtle touches such as mouldings and ornate columns.
The kitchen today must work impeccably as standard. By definition, traditional form and modern reliability are polar opposites - this is the challenge that we rise to overcome within this range to suit a modern home. Your personal taste and your Hehku Cucina Designer’s experience combine to create something truly individual.
The Germanic kitchen range is one that is instantly recognizable both visually and functionally. With the precise lines and clean aesthetics, come extremely high quality materials and appliances, and ergonomic perfection.
To accentuate the uninterrupted sightlines, the Germanic style is often lit with extreme consideration to bring out the beautiful colours and enhance the finish. Germanic kitchens can complement almost any property type, whether blending in with an ultra modern apartment, or contrasting with a bold statement inside a period home. They also look incredible enshrouded within a glazed aluminium extension to create a ‘Hehku’.
There are many reasons why we can deliver the very highest level of customer service, with a strong supply chain a key ingredient. Naturally, the materials and craftsmanship delivered by our partners has to be first class but we also look for other qualities such as innovation, sustainability and commitment to excellent service. We take pride in building loyal and positive relationships with our suppliers that will stand the test of time.
