Kitchen Makers

By Burbidge

In 1867 Henry Burbidge founded his woodworking company with ten shillings.

Today with the fifth generation at the helm, Burbidge & Son is widely recognised as one of the leading kitchen makers in the UK.

Born From Cricket Stumps & Croquet Mallets

Burbidge are a family business that has flourished over the years, surviving economic recessions and two world wars – the destruction of the factory during the Coventry Blitz was seen as just an interruption to proceedings.

Originally their work involved making wooden sports equipment such as cricket stumps and croquet mallets. However, across the decades, Burbidge continually reinvented itself making a diverse range of products from timber.

Their legacy means they have an intimate knowledge of production methods, whether incorporating intricate beading onto a shaker ash door or hand-spraying your kitchen with a bespoke colour palette that masterly reveals the beauty of the wood.


Bespoke Is In The Blood

By choosing Burbidge, you can rest assured that you are investing in the highest standard of kitchen, meticulously crafted by a British manufacturer.

Testament to the quality, craftsmanship and intricate detailing that they have become trusted for, they hold the prestigious Manufacturing Guild Mark, awarded by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers – a mark of excellence in British furniture making.

Real Kitchen Projects

Deep Green In Frame Shaker Kitchen

For the owners of this charming 18th century listed Cotswold stone barn in Warwickshire, a full renovation project also included creating a spacious open-plan kitchen diner. Having bought the property in 2020, the couple have lovingly spent time giving their home a completely new look, sympathetically designed to complement the warm, honey-coloured local Cotswold limestone that adorns the walls.

Dark Blue In Frame Shaker Kitchen

The owners of this stunning renovation relocated to Edgbaston as a family in 2015, and as their family expanded, their home evolved into a contemporary living space while preserving the Victorian charm of the house.

Charcoal In Frame Shaker Kitchen

Period properties are fantastic buildings in which to create a dream kitchen, especially when they include a rear extension that lets the light flood in. This Victorian house had a complete single-storey renovation at the back, with an extension for the new kitchen-diner-living area plus utility room complete with skylights and full-height, full-width sliding doors to seamlessly connect the inside and outside spaces.

Beautifully Crafted In-Frame Kitchens

We insist on traditionally crafted, rigid built cabinets of the highest quality. Everything about our products and design service are of an exceptional standard. We think style and substance go hand in hand. Our solid In-Frame kitchens showcase the tiniest details with masterful construction.

Our doors are left to cure for several days before the primer is applied prior to painting. The doors are then sanded again before another coat is applied, we repeat the process over and over until the finish is perfect. We have a collection of 16 beautiful paint colours which can be applied to your kitchen before installation. Alternatively our master painter can hand paint your kitchen any colour you chose following installation, to make your dream kitchen as unique as you desire.


A Wealth of Colour Choices

This year, we have introduced two new colours to the Kitchen Makers palette, English Red and Plaster. Inspired by our travels to Milan design week, the colours bring warmth and distinct style to any interior space.

With a move towards colour confidence, customers are uncovering new opportunities to express individuality, incorporating colour into their overall schemes.

Plaster; A timeless dusky-washed out pink that is reminiscent of freshly plastered walls – offering vibes of the Mediterranean.
