A new TV show all about deVOL on Magnolia Network
There has never really been a TV show about kitchen design before, so we are super chuffed that deVOL was invited to do it first. Our now two-time Emmy-nominated show is back for a second season, each episode follows a customer's journey from start to finish. We meet them right at the beginning when their dream kitchen is nothing but a dream, just a building site and some grand plans. Helen and Paul take you along as each design comes together; choosing a style, settling on a layout, picking appliances, colours and worktops. We take you into our workshops to see the furniture being made and painted, we join our amazing fitters and show you how Helen works her magic, styling the room for the final reveal. And because it's deVOL, we don't just make the cupboards, of course, we make everything; throughout the show, you'll get to see Robin and our talented designer makers at work on some exciting new products and old favourites.
