About Back to Basics

Our History

Established in 1995 by Andrew Parsley, a traditionally trained cabinet maker, Back to Basics was conceived to meet the challenge from friends who couldn’t find a company to make a bespoke kitchen to suit their specific requirements. They wanted a kitchen to fit the unusual space in their period house that would look good now, age with character over the years and add real value to their property.

The challenge was met, and far exceeded all expectations – Back to Basics was born.

From its foundation in kitchen design and building, Back to Basics has evolved through the years to encompass all types of one-off wooden furniture ranging from dining tables to fitted bedrooms and home offices.

We have flourished through word of mouth, relying predominantly on recommendations from satisfied customers, building a reputation for quality in both craftsmanship and service. Run by craftsmen rather than salesmen, Back to Basics is dedicated to helping customers realise the kitchens and furniture of their dreams.
