Quality & Pricing

All my furniture is individually designed and made to the highest possible standards in my own workshop. Doors are normally set inside frames and hung with butt hinges. Drawers are made from solid hardwood with dovetailed sides. Carcasses are usually built from hardwood faced MDF and where wooden tops are required, these are made to table top standard by a local timber company.

Prices are of course higher than most mass produced units, though this is not necessarily so. I was recently asked to provide an expert opinion on the quality and pricing of a home office bought through a major furniture retailer in Colchester. This turned out to be of mediocre quality at a price considerably higher than I would have charged to make it all to order to a much higher standard.

There is no charge for designing and estimating, though on large projects such as a kitchen I prefer to give a price based on a ground plan, before proceeding with a complete design.

If you would like a design and price please phone me on 01473 328087, email john@johnsalmon.co.uk or call in at the workshop. Usually I will arrange to pay you a visit to measure up and discuss the requirements. I will then produce a drawing together with a price and specification and simply post it back to you. There's no hard sell and no pressure. I'm a cabinet maker, not a salesman.
