About us

What do you look for in your ideal kitchen, bathroom or other items of fitted furniture? Individuality is probably a high priority: you want your furniture to have been designed for you, not for someone else. The choice of materials is no doubt important, too: high quality materials have a tactile and visual quality all of their own, and tend to be more durable than cheaper substitutes. And the calibre of the craftsmanship is also clearly an issue: investing in a kitchen or other fitted furniture is not a step to be taken lightly, so you want to know it will last for decades. On all these criteria, you can be confident that Thomas Ash, with over 30 years' experience of making fine, fully-framed furniture to customers' precise requirements, will exceed your expectations.

The workshop

You can see at a glance that Thomas Ash furniture is made from high quality materials, but it also repays closer scrutiny. Features like fully dovetailed drawer-boxes, or solid timber doors, panels and mouldings provide an integrity and dignity that mass-production simply cannot match. But then Thomas Ash furniture is not mass-produced. With the exception of machines to saw, plane and sand the timber, every item of furniture that leaves our dedicated workshop is made entirely by hand by skilled cabinetmakers. Each is a specialist in their field: one, for example, is dedicated to making our solid timber doors; another performs all the finishing and lacquering. It is a painstaking approach, but we find it's the only way to create furniture that will perfectly express your individuality and enhance your home for many years to come.


Please click on any photograph to take a closer look. If you do, you'll notice how our kitchens fit the dimensions of each room perfectly. This is because unlike other manufacturers who offer cabinets in standard sizes, the vast majority of ours are made to measure. You'll also see that although we are specialists in oak and hand-painted furniture, we also work in a rich variety of other sustainably-resourced woods. For your worktops, we offer a choice of granite, slate, Corian or various hardwoods, while our sinks, taps, appliances and door handles are sourced from the world's finest manufacturers.


To find out more about Thomas Ash's uncompromising approach to cabinetmaking, please feel free to make an appointment to visit our showroom. Here we can talk you through all the possible layout options, materials and design styles. Should you decide to proceed, the next step is to make an appointment to visit your home to gather the information we need to create a scaled floor plan design, together with an initial quotation. Once these meet your approval, we begin the manufacturing process, with installation following usually within a few weeks. As well as fitting the new furniture and appliances, our installation service can include removing your old kitchen or bathroom, and installing new electrics, plumbing and tiling. We can also work closely with your own builder if your project includes major structural alterations.
