  • Contact
  • Design

  • Installation

Projects typically begin with a site visit to discuss your ideas and requirements, and to look at the space where your bespoke fitted furniture or hand-made kitchen is to be built. We will then provide a no-obligation quote and an idea of timescales, usually within 48 hours.

If you are happy to proceed, we will then begin work on an initial design. When drawings are ready we will contact you to arrange a second site visit. Any necessary changes to the design can then be made, and the finer details discussed. Drawings will then be submitted to you for sign-off, and the exact installation date will be arranged.

As much of the work as possible will be done in our Bristol workshop to cut down on installation time and reduce inconvenience to you at home or work.

When your project is ready, we will install it on site.
