What is bespoke furniture?

houseUP creates more than just custom built furniture, made to specifications.

We create bespoke furniture through a true connection with our clients and their needs and wants. Be it a big kitchen or a small under-stair cabinet, the real value of our furniture is in creating storage and beauty for your very special place.

What is our process for building your bespoke furniture?

Consultation

Get in touch from the very start or get us your designer’s drawings for a quote. If you come to us from the start, you’ll get a reliable ballpark figure on the costs at a very early stage.

Design

For the odd corner in the guest bedroom or the under stair space in the hallway, design is when we find solutions for storage and interior design, in one. We always include at least two revisions of our designs.

Materials

Understand all the materials and the finishes, choose the right weight, texture and durability and make it perfect with the final finish that completes your interior decor

Making

Our workshop in North London is constantly in motion, creating all the little details that make your furniture unique. We regularly upgrade and expand our machinery, with joiner teams that include three generations of joiners.

Pricing

We usually quote against final drawings, especially if by external designers. If you choose to design with us, the design cost is included in our pricing. We take a deposit when you place your final production order.

Installation

Our expert installers will carry out the installation of your custom made furniture. We install full kitchens, fitted wardrobes, shutters, shelvings and also doors, windows and anything else you can think of.

Other services

If you are planning an overall renovation of your property, we specialise in high end residential refurbishments in London and we’d love to help you give your place a makeover.

Materials and Finishes

With an excellent design and the right choice of materials, bespoke joinery makes everything possible.

But the greatest boosters of creativity come with the choice of finishing. Colours and textures play with light and the human eye, to create infinite combinations.

Environmental challenges

In houseUP we particularly care about the environmental challenges of our work, especially considering our bigger renovation and refurbishment projects.

When possible, we give new life to reclaimed and up-cycled objects and materials. When working with new timber, we select the most reliable sources.

Most of all, we believe in sustainability and the right for families and local people, everywhere, to support themselves and their families for a fair profit. That is why we choose local producers when possible and select small businesses that are environmentally conscious.

With our digital vocation, we believe in using AI, Automation and APIs to support our sustainability journey. houseUP has been carbon neutral since October 2020, in partnership with Equilibrium.
