Bristol Kitchen Makers

FAQs

Who are Bristol Kitchen Makers ?

We are a small team of experienced cabinet makers with decades of experience in design and furniture making. We are committed to delivering the highest quality bespoke kitchens to customers in and around Bristol.

How much will my kitchen cost ?

All of our kitchens are bespoke to fit your exact requirements with prices starting at £10,000. An average project you might see on the website is likely to be between £15-30,000.

Why should I choose to buy from Bristol Kitchen Makers ?

At Bristol Kitchen Makers we believe that if you’re looking to commission a bespoke kitchen it should be exactly that. It should be designed around your needs, lifestyle and home.
 
You may live in a traditional home but would like a cutting-edge modern look that fits over an uneven floor. We can design, make and install your kitchen so that it fits perfectly into your room. Our designers are also cabinet makers and we will work directly with you to grow your ideas using CAD until we arrive at exactly what you want.
 
We provide an accommodating service, our flexible working methods and design service is tailored to you.

What does bespoke design really mean ?

Bespoke design means that your furniture is built to fit perfectly to suit you and your home.  We do not select from pre-made standard cabinets and then use filler panels at the end of each run. Our designers will come up with something unique for you and we will make each cabinet exactly the right size to fit perfectly in the space it was designed for.

Do you make other furniture apart from kitchens ?

At Bristol Kitchen Makers we make a comprehensive range of fitted and free standing bespoke furniture. We can design and make a home office for you, bookcases, alcove units and wardrobes or anything else you may need.

Do you do projects outside of Bristol ?

We work mainly within Bristol and surrounding areas. Projects further afield may be taken on under the right circumstances.

What sort of materials do you use ?

We use a wide range of materials based on customer needs and budget. Our carcasses are usually made of birch plywood and the doors and frames are usually made from solid wood or made with veneered or birch plywood depending on the design brief. We only use timber and sheet materials which are deemed to be ethical and which carry certification from the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) who promote sustainably managed forests worldwide.

How long will my project take to complete ?

A typical project takes around six to eight weeks from the point that we begin constructing your kitchen to when we begin the installation. The design process prior to this is usually around two weeks.
 
The installation depends on the size of the project. A medium sized kitchen usually takes around one week with larger installations taking between two and three weeks. Please be aware that we have an average lead time of around two months.

What kind of finishes do you provide ?

We use a wide range of finishes dependent on customer choice. Our suppliers include amounts others Farrow & Ball, Little Greene and Morrells. We use water-based, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) sprayed lacquered finishes in clear and polychrome which are eco-friendly and have a low odour. For a hand finish we spray all components with two coats of water based primer and hand paint everything upon fitting.

Where are you based ?

The workshops are located in central Bristol in Easton.

What kitchen styles do you offer ?

We can work with you to produce a unique contemporary design to fit your lifestyle, or if you prefer we can reproduce a style from any period you choose.
