Our Kitchens

Built on our passion for craftsmanship

We’ve been designing and building handmade kitchens in Hampshire for more than 35 years. In that time, styles and finishes have come and gone, trends and fashion have ebbed and flowed: we’ve stayed true to the principles of good design, and our dedication to working only in solid wood is as deep as the day we started. Our Showroom and workshop are based in Petersfield, Hampshire – come and visit us!

The important thing is, we’re craftsmen, not artists. Everything we make looks beautiful because it’s designed and built to perform a definite function, using the best materials for the job. And when it comes to your kitchen, we can bring insights, ideas and suggestions based on hundreds of previous projects and decades of combined experience. But it is your kitchen.

The Collection

Your handmade kitchen will, of course, be designed and built to your precise, personal specification. certain styles have proved enduringly, and deservedly, popular. Our collections offer inspiration and the perfect starting point if you’re specifying a handbuilt kitchen for the first time.

Remember, we’ll make every element, from scratch, for you, so there’s plenty of scope to let your imagination run wild.

If you want simple, this is simple. The doors and drawer fronts are all completely flat. Like many of our designs this was driven by client’s requests for something that was very, very simple and very easy to keep clean.

This has been our most popular kitchen over the last 35 odd years. It harps back to the old ledge and brace doors which you will find in many old properties.
