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

Our cabinets are built primarily from wood and we are obsessed with this most elemental of materials sourced from responsible suppliers.
We have removed the need for plastic feet and replaced with a wooden adjustable plinth, made from offcuts.
For a lifetime
Our kitchens are built to last a lifetime backed up by our 30 year guarantee. 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.
We need to run a van and use electricity in our workshop and design studio but we balance this by investing in forest credits to offset our carbon.
Our workshop runs on 100% renewable energy from Ecotricity and in winter is heated by burning our offcuts.
We are currently in the process of calculating our emissions with a view to reducing and offsetting all that we emit, working closely with Future Leap, a local Sustainability hub.
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.
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.
We hand paint our kitchens giving them depth and texture. This also means you can 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. We can colour match to our favourites which are Farrow & Ball, Little Greene and Paint & Paper Library (and any others!)
The dovetail is the strongest joint in woodwork. A method used for hundreds of years to build beautiful solid furniture.
Our drawers have a thick plywood base and run on the best soft close runners.
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.
