A family business with a passion for kitchens
Established in 1973 by Charles, and run by the Warnes family ever since, we know a bit about what’s needed to create the perfect kitchen. You could say we have a passion for it. A love that has been nurtured for over 50 years.
It’s that experience coupled with a strong commitment to customer service, that allows us to help our clients to realise their own dream kitchen. After all, it is where we spend most of our family time.

What our customers say about us
We are delighted with our kitchen and very impressed with the speedy and efficient way it was installed while still giving attention to detail.
We would like to commend you for your marvelous service. My wife called around 4pm, and, the machine was delivered about 5pm, installed by about 5.30pm, now working! Thank you so much, we are delighted. Your delivery guy was brilliant.
