“To make something with your own bare hands is so rewarding”, says James, Owner and Principal Cabinetmaker, BH Kitchens. And he’s right. Don’t get us wrong, technology has helped us come on leaps and bounds in manufacturing—especially within the carpentry and cabinetmaking industry—but there is a certain quality, and aura almost, that comes from something that has been handcrafted; and never was that sentiment more true, than in the case of this incredible local business, BH Kitchens. We’re in the workshop as we speak; James is showing us around the current projects he is working on including the showcase pieces on display in the showroom. We stand in awe as he shares with us his passion for his beloved craft. The pieces really are stunning. On initial inspection the quality easily stands out, but as we creep closer to inspect the finer details you can’t help but be taken aback by the intricacy and clear attention to detail.
James wishes to dispel the myth about the price of bespoke kitchens: “There’s a myth that bespoke has to cost you the earth, but it’s really not the case. Take your average high street kitchen company, for example. They offer you an unbelievable price to start, then by the time you’ve added in the things you want, you’re back up to some slightly more unsettling figures—and for something that isn’t custom-made, and likely made of more budget materials. Everything that we install into our clients’ homes are made right here, within our workshop in Poole”
