sustainable philosophy

We profoundly believe in continuous incremental improvement.  We understand that we will never reach sustainable perfection but are constantly striving for a greener future.

CARBON neutral

Sustainable Kitchens operates as a certified carbon-neutral business, recognised by the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), and forming a part of our wider journey to becoming net zero.

Our passionate team will work together in all aspects of the business to measure, manage and reduce.

Our next focus will be on our supply chain, promoting transparency with suppliers and partnering with companies who are equally invested in fighting climate change.


Our cabinets are built primarily from wood and we are obsessed with this most elemental of materials sourced from responsible suppliers.

We use high-grade Birch plywood for our carcasses, a material so strong, it will not sag or swell over time. Our carcasses are finished with a tough, water-based, matte lacquer, retaining the natural beauty of the wood.

We have removed the need for plastic feet in our Bespoke range and replaced them with a wooden adjustable plinth, made from our offcuts.  


Our kitchens are built to last a lifetime backed up by our 30-year guarantee.

Our kitchens are robust and built to stand the test of time, which to us, is the ultimate measure of sustainability in that they won’t need to be replaced.

Invite us back in 10 years for a fresh coat of paint and a quick tune up to keep your kitchen in new condition.


Through our partnership with Avon Needs Trees, we are helping replant the UK’s native woodland.

The Sustainable Kitchens tree dedication scheme ensures the planting and maintenance of trees with each kitchen we make. As a team, we volunteer for the plantation and upkeep of these wonderful projects.

We have previously supported planting through The Woodland Trust and The Forest of Avon Trust. 


Our website is powered by 100% renewable energy through Kualo to help reduce the environmental impact of the internet. 

We can’t live without the internet, but we can make it a greener place!



We source our materials as locally as possible. 

Whether it’s our hardware from Herefordshire or wood from Wiltshire; we have a rich manufacturing history in this country which we all need to champion for tomorrow.


When planning your dream kitchen, you may be stuck trying to figure out how you can get rid of your existing kitchen without it going to landfill. We’ve teamed up with Rehome, formerly known as Used Kitchen Exchange, who specialise in dismantling and selling perfectly good pre-loved kitchens to reduce waste and give your used kitchen a new lease of life.

Find out how you can sell your used kitchen with Rehome.


We strive to re-use and recycle wherever and whenever possible committing very little of our workshop materials to waste. Careful cutting lists and an eye for recycled design means nothing is wasted. 

Our kitchens are installed with no plastic or wasteful wrapping, we carefully deliver them in reusable protective packing blankets.

Any non-recyclable waste is zero to landfill, managed in the most sustainable way possible. 

Some of our offcuts are shared with external companies who reuse to make wonderful items such as bird boxes and bee hotels. 


All of our kitchens are handmade right here in the UK at our workshop in Bristol by our incredible team of joiners and makers. By having full control of manufacturing and sourcing most of our materials from local businesses, we can keep our transport emissions as low as possible.


We hand paint our kitchens giving them depth and texture allowing you to easily touch up any marks or choose to repaint the kitchen in time for a fresh lease of life.

We use water-based paints through a colour-match service allowing us to have a  more durable, longer-lasting finish.

Prior Made

To prevent our offcuts from ending up in landfills, we share them with local independent maker Prior Made, who skillfully transform these materials into exquisite homeware and trinkets.

We are delighted with the quality of our Sustainable Kitchen. Sam and the team guided us through the design process, really listening to what we hoped to achieve. They were very flexible in the face of our shifting building schedule and the fitting and painting team did a superb job. We should never need a new kitchen, but if we did, we wouldn’t hesitate to call on Sustainable Kitchens.

Couldn’t be more pleased with Sustainable Kitchens. They respected our very specific requirements, contributed some helpful suggestions, came exactly when promised and did precisely what was agreed. They completed even earlier than the time scheduled, were clean and efficient and did a perfect job – we’ve never had such a good installation experience and we’ve had plenty!
