Kitchens are the New Communal Space.
We re-imagine kitchens as affordable, useful and elegant pieces of furniture, perfect for modern living and open plan spaces.
Our founders, Rachel and Ian, are parents of young children and love to cook. We believe kitchens need to be durable as they are the workhorse of the home, but the choice seems to be clinical kitchens, or dated traditional designs unsuited to how we live. We help you create wonderfully atmospheric and timeless spaces where friends and family can gather, spending time cooking, eating and socialising.
The simplicity of our designs allow the exceptional materials, nature inspired palette and fine craftsmanship to speak for themselves.
We design and make everything ourselves under one roof, and our hands-on connection to every step of the process ensures the highest of quality and craft.
People are charged far too much for fully bespoke kitchens, and budget kitchens can be shockingly low quality and unhealthy for your home, using materials like MDF and toxic paints.
There is another way. With decades of experience designing, making and installing kitchens and bespoke birch ply furniture, a previous background in fine art and design, and a keen interest in sustainability, we make kitchens that don't just look good, but ARE good.
Make Everyday Extraordinary
As we had installed countless Ikea kitchens, including in our own homes, we knew the high quality and affordability of their cabinet system (25 years guarantee!). But there was a narrow choice of doors. So, we had the idea of combining our premium handcrafted products with existing cabinet systems, such as Ikea, and Custom Fronts was born.
Since launching we have had orders from all over the UK and Europe, many enquiries from further afield (even the US and Australia) and lots of interest from industry professionals and interior design publications. Our showroom will open soon near Brighton, one hour from London and we hope to meet you there.
