As you would expect from Kestrel, we work with only the very best materials. This is why we only use oak, ash, maple, walnut and cherry; woods of the highest quality, responsibly sourced to have minimal impact on the environment. We are committed to ethical trading and adopt a strict ‘Responsible Purchasing Policy’, to ensure that all the timbers we use are from legal origin and sustainable sources. This means you can be assured that every piece of wood used in your project comes from a well-managed forest. Kestrel is also the region’s founding member of the Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA), whose members are dedicated to upholding the Association’s high standards of design, supply, installation and customer service. As the region’s only truly bespoke manufacturer of kitchens, as well as bedroom, bathroom and home office furniture, we never compromise on quality.





The quality craftsmanship that we provide here at Kestrel is the key to every aspect of your bespoke project.

    Mrs Thurtle – Norwich

  • I was impressed by the relaxed fashion by everyone that carried out their work. It can be a stressful time for the customer as they know they are ‘in the hands’ of professionals who know more than they do. This fact as well as all the upheaval can cause stress. I was amazed to find I did not feel stressed – for which I am also very grateful. Please pass on our many thanks for the combined efforts of all the ‘Kestrel People’.

Disruption within my home during the fitting period was kept to an absolute minimum and let me pay tribute to your excellent team – they are superb tradesmen. Many thanks for a job well done!
