Based in Caterham, Surrey, we are a small family business that take pride in designing and creating quality home interiors. Over two generations, our family have honed and perfected our unique craftmanship in custom-made carpentry, joinery and cabinetry.
We are passionate about what we do and work in a small team that invests time and skill into every design project we take on. Our team is fully committed to delivering truly exceptional and bespoke handcrafted furniture to your interior spaces. Excellence and a very personal customer service are always at the heart of our business.
It is paramount that the cabinetry has a practical use as well as being aesthetically pleasing. As such, we create bespoke furniture that we are proud to have displayed. Our items are designed to enhance the way you live.
Having been trading for over 40 years, we feel privileged to enjoy long-lasting relationships with interior designers, architects, property developers and homeowners, many of whom return to us for subsequent interiors projects.
DISCUSSING YOUR IDEA
Projects normally start with a discussion over the phone in order to determine the scope and to outline your plans, as well as to give any further details or design specifications you may wish to include.
Initial discussions are usually followed by an onsite visit, which will allow us to develop plans, as well as to provide you with a rough cost estimate.
Following our site visit, we proceed to preliminary design drawings. We ensure you are happy with the designs and pricing before we move to more detailed drawings and starting your bespoke interiors project.
BUILD AND CUSTOM-MAKE
After the detailed drawings have been finalised and agreed, the craftmanship begins! This stage could take from a few days to a few weeks depending on the scope and complexity of joinery work.
After the build is complete, we then proceed to install your handmade furniture in your interior space. We also liase with other trades to make sure your bespoke carpentry items are delivered and installed in a timely manner to meet your renovation and build project schedule requirements.
Our family business grows through recommendations. We continue to strive to improve our customer service and experience. We always appreciate and value your insights. We will always listen.
“Having designed and built our new house, we were keen to have quality, bespoke fitted furniture for our master bedroom. Jim provided a great service from designs and plans for our proposed units through to construction and installation. The finished product is superb. We are delighted with the furniture and we would have no hesitation in recommending Jim and Johnston & Sons.”
“We are delighted with our new oak office, and with the extra storage cabinets you cleverly created elsewhere in the house. The whole process was impressive, from your patience in understanding our specific needs during the design phase, to the quality of the workmanship and functionality of the finished products. It was a pleasure to work with such a courteous and professional team. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone.”

“Following some time in choosing the correct company to design and make our kitchen, we settled on Johnston & Sons. Our main concern was to find someone that could design a kitchen that complemented our property and was of the highest standard. Jim had some fantastic ideas, which added to what we had in mind. Jim and his team fitted the bill and the deciding factor was the history of his business. Jim is the third generation of family joiner to work within the business. The end result is we now have our dream kitchen. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim and his team of workers to anyone that wants high quality workmanship. My friends and family have now also used Johnston & Sons.”
