The Minerva Journey

Matthew Cruse and Joshua Arkell, directors and founders of Minerva Design, have been friends for a long time. With an accumulated knowledge of more than 25 years between them in the trade, they knew it was time to start a business together

Dedication, long hours and reinvesting into the company has allowed the two to form one of the fastest growing companies in the area. Customer service, going above and beyond and bespoke quality that shines are the most important elements to building their sustainable business.

Despite their experience, they still look forward to learning new skills as well as finding new people with different qualities. As Minerva grows and they build a company with long-term viability, they aim to take on new and interesting challenges. To begin with, they wish to expand the business into London and other major cities throughout the UK, as well as introducing new materials and designs into their handmade kitchens and furniture.

Minerva Design Service

Minerva offer a full design service. We can work closely with a clients interior designers or architect, or supply our own. Otherwise, Minerva have an in-house design team who can transform any space into a dream kitchen.

Our excellent 3D software can render any plan into reality, which offers potential clients an accurate idea of the potential of their space. This stage also eliminates problems further down the line as each client knows what to expect from their handmade furniture.

Our designers will collect samples of finishes, ironmongery and materials, as well as paint charts with 3D and 2D plans. We will then arrange design consultations with the clients to finalise each detail of the project before delegating to our craftsmen to hand-make each commission.
