London Carpenters and Joiners

Investing in bespoke furniture, perfectly designed to fit your space or complement your style might seem a real luxury, but it’s an investment you are unlikely to regret. Carpenters and joiners are true craftsmen, highly skilled at working with wood. The range of jobs a London carpenter or joiner might do for you is almost limitless, whether producing made-to-measure pieces of home furniture and bespoke joinery or woodwork, or working on larger construction projects. You might want to employ your carpenter in London for everything from constructing a roof frame to architectural trims, from building a wall-to-wall bookcase to crafting a bespoke kitchen table, and from designing a one of a kind balustrade to building open shelving in the kitchen. They can also add a special artisan’s touch to normally incidental items such as door frames, picture frames and panelling, or fashion storage solutions in normally unused spaces such as under the stairs or in alcoves and niches. Essentially, London joiners and carpenters can cope with all sorts of woodwork and bespoke joinery in London, install it in unusual spaces and dimensions, and also instil your home with real handmade quality.

Featured Reviews for Carpenters and Joiners in London
FORM CARPENTRY | Carpenters & Joiners West London
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"Thanks Brett for the work you did to completely re-design and install our kitchen. There were a number of idiosyncratic elements - working with uneven floors and walls, an inconvenient central pillar and various design ideas we had. We're delighted with the level of craftsmanship, the ease of working with you and the pleasure the kitchen is now giving us. Would happily recommend you to anyone. Andrew"

MW Creative Carpentry
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"Martin was recommended to us after our relatively small but highly bespoke projects were turned down by several large companies. Looking back, we’re very glad they did, as we are absolutely delighted with the work Martin did for us. Martin took the time to discuss with us what we were trying to achieve, understand how we wanted the end result to fit within our interior and came up with great design ideas. His craftsmanship is really excellent and you can definitely see the quality of his work in the various pieces he produced for us. Further, he is very responsive to emails and sticks to deadlines (or will let you know in advance if something takes longer than expected). Even better, the rooms he was working in were clean at the end of each day when he was on site. Overall, we can only give high praise to Martin for his work. We have recommended him to our friends and neighbours, who have all been equally pleased with his work."

MJS of London
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"Bespoke panelled wardrobes (contemporary) for an awkward space with sloping ceilings. Excellent joinery: only reason for removing one star is the fact that the undercoat/primer was applied roughly and needed refinishing. If we had used a decorator for the finish I would have awarded 5 stars."

Shape London
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"Amazing personal service from Rob and the rest of his team. Lots of time and effort went into the design stage so we were comfortable with the scheme, materials and scope of works prior to installation. The quality of workmanship was very high and the follow up service dealing with any snagging has been exemplary. Have no hesitation in recommending them."

Thorsen Joinery
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"I found Klaus Thorsen through various local web sites with high recommendation. I needed some special shelving units and cupboards to be built in my study. The space was complex due to it being in a loft extension and my requirements were very specific. Klaus took my very rough drawings and measured up perfectly to adapt this to the actual space. The quality of his work was perfect and I am delighted with the result. As important was his attitude, which including being punctual almost to the second, being excellent to work with, ensuring not a speck of dust remained after he had finished and keeping perfectly to schedule. Indeed the only problem is that Klaus is booked up for several months in advance!! I would HIGHLY recommend him"

"Ben was brilliant and professional. Aside from being a talented craftsman, Ben communicated very well throughout the project and understood our requirements very well. The outcome is a beautiful built-in wardrobe. I am only disappointed we won't be able to take it with us everywhere we go!"

The Hampshire Bespoke Carpentry Company
Carpenters and Joiners in London
"I first engaged Lukasz because he had done the carpentry in the kitchen and the bathrooms of the house I bought. From that, it was clear that there was an excellent attention to detail as all the corners fit perfectly, and everything was well thought out with quality materials. Since then, he has also made built in wardrobes and fitted dado rails. In all instances the quality was great and the people working with him were very conscientious, paying attention to detail and tidying up after themselves. I have been very happy and will continue to use Lukasz for further work."

"Best trade company ever! I’ve had my fair share of terrible experiences, but WoodArt give everything you expect - creative, easy process, fantastic quality, attention to detail, timeliness. I had a new bookcase, study, lounge units and utility room designed and made. I was more than impressed and have already recommended to several friends who have also used Anton’s company."

"We couldn't recommend Duncan more highly. He made us the most beautiful fitted cupboards for our lounge, as well as a bespoke home office. Great value for money, super nice guy as well as clean, tidy and courteous. We've already recommended him to friends and they're also thrilled with the work he's done. We're just deciding what work we want him to do next!"

What is the difference between carpenters and joiners?


Carpentry and joinery are two specialisms within the overall trade of woodworking. There is certainly much overlap between the two trades – both primarily work with wood, of course – but one does not perfectly equal the other. At its simplest level, a carpenter will create, install or repair on site what a joiner makes in a workshop – the latter focusing on cutting and fitting joints. But there are also exceptions to this broad distinction. Some joiners will be involved in finishing and fitting certain pieces of bespoke joinery such as skirting boards and architraves, and many professionals work as both joiners and carpenters.

When deciding whether to employ a joiner or carpenter in London, it is best to pick your professional according to their experience on projects similar to your own. For example, installing bespoke joinery such as a staircase involves significant structural work and you might want to work with a carpenter in London with considerable experience in bespoke staircase joinery. You will often find you need to employ both a carpenter and joiner on a single project, and some firms will offer both skillsets which can simplify your overall hiring process.

Where can I find a good London carpenter or joiner?


On Houzz there are many professional London carpenters and joiners that specialise in providing a full carpentry service or bespoke joinery in London, whether dealing with fitted or freestanding, traditional or contemporary furniture. Simply search for a joiner or carpenter in London in the Find Pros category, then add images of designs that you like to an Ideabook and contact those on your shortlist. If you need reassurance beyond photos of their work and reviews of previous clients, then you might check to see if the carpenter or joiner is a member of The Institute of Carpenters (IOC), The Guild of Master Craftsmen, the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) or the Federation of Master Builders (FMB). Each asks its members to meet a certain level of expertise and abide by a code of conduct. Have a face-to-face consultation – basic brief and image references in hand – see which joiner or carpenter in London is the easiest to get along with and who best understands what you’re trying to achieve.
