Barnes of Ashburton

At Barnes of Ashburton we design and hand-build beautiful bespoke kitchens and freestanding furniture. We have over 35 years of experience and have worked with a vast range of properties from ancient Devon farmhouses to modern seaside developments, from luxury London apartments to quaint cottages in Cornwall.

We pride ourselves on making kitchens that enhance homes. We are equally happy working with the irregularities of an aged period building as we are with the dramatic designs of modern architecture. Our talented and experienced designers will work closely with you to create a design that is suited to your individual requirements and desires. Your Barnes Kitchen is then built from scratch by highly skilled cabinetmakers in our Devon workshop and then installed in your home, wherever it may be.

Beautiful handmade kitchens

We have designed and built in virtually every style imaginable from classic farmhouse kitchens to stylish contemporary kitchens. We pride ourselves on innovative design skills, superb craftsmanship and exceptional attention to detail to ensure that the finished article will look fabulous and last a life time.

Functional space

With the kitchen often seen as the heart of the home, it is vital that the space works for you and your family. Whether you opt for built-in or free-standing pieces, we understand the importance of ample storage, creative use of space and easy movement in the kitchen. More often than not we want to do far more than cook and want space to relax, entertain and work. Our commitment to careful consultation with all our clients helps us to understand and fulfil these requirements.

Kitchen design

Every Barnes Kitchen is different! Our designers approach each project with an entirely open mind and listen to your requirements. Your individual style and the character of your home informs and influences the design process, while our highly skilled craftsmen make all things possible!

How can you commission a Barnes Kitchen?

Firstly we visit your home to meet you so that our designer and project manager can listen to what you are looking for from your new kitchen and carry out a full site survey. We like to hear and understand how your kitchen will be used, what storage space you require, what your budget and timescale is and talk about the overall look or style you want to achieve. Once designs are ready we will invite you our Ashburton showroom to present our initial ideas. This meeting is a great opportunity to discuss any fine tuning that may be required. Once you are happy with the design and budgets have been agreed and worked to it is at this stage where we ask for a 20% deposit to book your workshop time and discuss installation dates.
