As a family run business we are proud to take responsibility, offering ownership to what we do, and give that personal service to all our clients. Tonight on BBC three at 9pm watch Hidden Histories – Britain’s Oldest Family Business’s.
Supporting British industry and keeping old traditional manufacturing crafts going for future generations are slowly becoming things of the past.
Our shopping behaviour has changed, it’s not about enjoyment, satisfaction, quality or choices anymore but about bargains, a quick immediate purchase and having what everyone else has.
We are becoming a nation that is making huge corporate companies richer; we encourage their cut throat approach and the government allows them to suffocate smaller business by allowing them to take over and branch out to all services.
We no longer cherish our heritage, look after our forgotten industry’s and are not getting the satisfaction for buying quality over mass produced produce, which is quite often sourced from overseas.
It’s evident that we like the idea of supporting local British industry, we like the idea that English heritage is striving and exists but the reality is we are forgetting to support and consider smaller companies that are striving to carry on regardless.

Here is one of our bespoke kitchens; its hand painted with oak internal cabinetry and has granite worktops. It features an island with a seating area, hanging pot rack and a circular drum cabinet on the end. Full height cabinets including breakfast dresser, larders and pan drawers.
The house is a large Victorian house that was previously used for offices. And when we were first commissioned to the project, the house was just being renovated and converted; enabling the internal rooms to become functional for family living.
The original kitchen was very limited due to lack of wall space; we needed to design a large family kitchen by incorporating 3 rooms into one space.
The kitchen had to compliment and involve the period features, such as making the most of the huge bay window, and the kitchen over mantel was made from using the stone & surround from the original fireplace.
The design style of the cabinets are classic with cock beading around all doors and drawers, shaker style panelling, traditional cornice and solid plinths.


Here’s a unique interesting piece of furniture we made from hand selected solid Pippy Oak with a Danish oiled finish.

It’s a bookcase with a difference, featuring 2 drawers, irregular spaces for books / ornaments and mortised & tennon bar detail on the sides.

Would a home office be something you would like to have, but you have not got a spare room to allocate.

Well how about making better use of the space under your stairs.

Here is a fitted home office we have made for one of our clients.

We used solid European Prime Oak with a Danish oiled finish. The style the client chose was Shaker; featuring a typical square panel on doors and deep drawers and bespoke oak handles.


Grey has become the new trend at the moment in the world of bespoke hand painted kitchens and furniture; tones ranging from charcoal grey to pale stone colours are very on trend.

The best thing about grey is that it goes with so many different other colours when looking for a new colour scheme, you just cant go wrong.

It works beautifully against yellows; we recommend matching a similar tone / depth of yellow to your choice of grey. this way they will work well together rather than against. its also advisable to add some white to a yellow colour scheme to offer some muted relief. Even darker muted blues can be added to this colour scheme. Finding a colour that goes well with yellow is a great solution for brightening up any North facing room.

Or perhaps a mix of mineral tones, such as rose / corals with pale yellow and grey is more suited to you, and there’s always the warmer option of having the natural hues of wood mixed with berry colours with grey.

Grey is just so versatile, its no wonder that its become a favorite with our clients. it seesm to give a more sophisticated option from just having safe creams incorporated into your room setting.

Salcey Cabinet Makers are showcasing at The Listed Property Show this Feb and we have chosen Elephants Breath No.229 by Farrow & Ball for our hand painted kitchen Larder cabinet which we will be displaying along with our extensive portfolios of work.
