Exceptional Quality & Service

At the Handmade Kitchen Company by Nicholas Bridger we have gained a fantastic reputation for our quality of kitchen design, finished product and service.

Being a family run business based in Essex we are able to serve our clients in and around Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, London and the Home Counties. Our size enables us to take time with our clients and ensure fantastic service from start to finish and beyond.

Our designers work with you from the start to design a kitchen around your current and future requirements.


Nick Bridger has been designing beautiful kitchens for discerning clients for two decades.

Having worked in a wide variety of roles within the construction industry since leaving school, Nicholas branched out into kitchen design and installation, opening his first showroom for Handmade Kitchen Company in Epping Essex.

His continued success in developing and delivering beautifully designed bespoke kitchens that perfectly match your lifestyle has led to expansion of the business.

“I believe in the personal touch. My wealth of expertise in kitchen design has been gained through many years of practical experience in all aspects of a business I love. This means that my customers benefit from advice given by a knowledgeable designer who is passionate about kitchen furniture and customer satisfaction.”


Exceptional Attention to Detail

Our traditional cabinet making process is combined with the latest technology from design in 3D to sub-millimeter precision production – your new furniture will fit beautifully into your available space.

We use beautiful raw materials which are handcrafted by our skilled craftsmen from scratch. Mortice and Tenon jointed doors and dove tail drawer boxes are some of the traditional methods used in the construction of the cabinetry.

All hardware used such as hinges, catches, handles & knobs are all the highest grade possible from leading manufacturers.

Client Testimonials

Nick installed our kitchen 6 years ago , it still looks fabulous, the craftsmanship is very high as it still looks and functions as well to this day The odd minor issue which has actually been our fault was soon resolved by Nick and his team , even many years after installation. Top service all round !

Stunning showroom, was very happy with the information available to me, Nick is very knowledgeable. I had a demonstration of the Sub Zero wine chiller which is dual zone exactly what we wanted, we are looking to include that in our upcoming kitchen project. We are looking forward to the kitchen being installed by Nick and his team in the coming months.

We are thrilled with The Handmade Kitchen Company’s work – they’ve created us a beautiful kitchen in terms of design and finish and were brilliant to deal with and highly responsive throughout. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent quality kitchen. Thank you!

Exceeded our expectations from design to completion. Very professional with great ideas, on time and on budget transforming our house.

We had our kitchen replaced in 2013 by Hand made Kitchen company.
They did a great job and were really responsive, helping us to design the layout and making really helpful suggestion. I didn’t leave a review at the time, just didn’t get round to it but 4 years on it still looks like new. Someone visited the other day and commented that we had a new kitchen. It made me realise just how good it still looks. That prompted me to leave a belated review.
