We plan, design, manufacture and install bespoke handmade kitchens and home furniture.


The best way to ensure you get things exactly the way you imagined is to keep it all under one roof. Traditional or contemporary, natural wood or painted, colour, worktops, appliances, taps, tiles... whatever your vision we are here to ensure it is delivered in its beautiful reality.

Top Notch Designs was founded by the two of us back in 1987. 

The aim of the business was simple – offer a complete service from planning and design to manufacturing and installation. And, of course, do it really well.

The result is a business that has grown through word-of-mouth, creating distinctive kitchens and a range of fitted and free-standing furniture in a variety of styles for over 1,000 clients.

Still located in Chesham, Buckinghamshire (where we started) we are now a team – design and showroom upstairs and workshop downstairs. 

Our style is to work closely with every client, translating their ideas, suggesting our own, planning and crafting the modern and traditional to achieve something that everyone feels is special.

Please take a look at our portfolio page to get a more detailed idea of what we can do. Then give us a call. We would be delighted to give you our thoughts on your project.

We start by looking at your space - how can it best be used to achieve your vision, your style. Working together we use the latest tech to produce vivid 3-D perspective images. A visit to our showroom, catalogues and samples all help to ensure you can carefully plan your exact requirements. 


Our workshop is where it all takes shape, crafted by our team of specialists. Measuring, cutting, assembling and finishing to quality 'old-school' standards; every kitchen or piece of furniture we make looks and, most importantly, feels bespoke. As you may have gathered, it's these standards we are deeply proud of.


Having got so far, we are obviously keen to see the project is complete to your total satisfaction. We offer a full range of installation services, working with our people and/or yours to ensure everything goes smoothly in the final stages. Our eye for detail and pursuit of quality ensures everything is carefully completed.



Your company’s standard of service has been quite outstanding. You took endless time and trouble over the detailed design of the kitchen (which has really paid off now) and went to extraordinary lengths to ensure that the finished product is as near perfect as humanly possible. Where problems arose you sorted them promptly and with a minimum of fuss...we have also been most impressed by the quality and craftsmanship of your team and it was a pleasure to watch you at work.

We wanted to write to say how delighted we are with our new kitchen, it’s exactly what we wanted. The plan you gave us initially was exactly what we wanted and dealt with all the problem areas we had. Everything went so smoothly and was done so efficiently that we couldn’t believe how quickly everything was done. We couldn’t be more pleased.

We are extremely grateful for the ease with which the whole operation on the kitchen was carried out. Everybody who arrived to work was pleasant and cheerful and never failed to clean up after themselves - all in all a pleasure to have around. And we certainly couldn’t have hoped for a better end result! We are absolutely thrilled with it and would recommend anybody to use your company.
