Couldn't recommend Humphries Cabinets more. Excellent and quick communication with all members of the team. Very helpful site visits which allowed for tweaks to be made to our plans for the better. The service was very quick, and we are very happy with the final product. Will definitely be returning in the future. Special thanks to Zephyr and Anatoly for being brilliant to work with.

Thank you Zephyr, Veronica, Anatoly, Kimi and team. A fantastic service from start to finish. Very helpful early consultation and design advice; Zephyr even arranged a visit to a previous customer so we could see the final finish. All our design wishes were accommodated, with detailing to match existing detailing on our period property. The installation was quick and very professional and the end quality is excellent. A fanatic product and excellent value for money.

We had a fantastic job completed by Humphries Cabinets. Cupboards and shelves either side of the fireplace, large storage cupboard and a desk with shelving. The whole process from measuring up to completion was exceptional and the standard of carpentry first class. The best tradesmen that we have dealt with during our refurbishment. Would give 6 stars if we could. Thank you Zephyr, Matis and Marina!

This is the second time we have come to Humphries Cabinets and they did just as beautiful a job as the first time. As before, I was so impressed at their expertise and attention to detail. The job was done promptly and beautifully finished and all for a very competitive price. I would highly recommend this firm.

We needed a fitted wardrobe for a small bedroom in a victorian house to maximise the space we have. Humphries were great from the first point of contact through to design, installation and painting. Their communication was good and their team punctual, friendly and delivered great workmanship. They cleaned up after themselves too:) Yet to put the wardrobe into action but really happy with the result.

Humphries have just finished 2 jobs for us : a built in wardrobe in an awkward sloping ceiling alcove and a home office desk/workstation/shelving unit. We were very pleased with the process from start to finish - from agreeing the designs, finalising the drawings to the builds, which were carried out quickly and to a very high standard. There were good communications throughout the process and we thought the price was very fair for the work involved. Recommended - we would use Humphries again.

Amazing work from Humphries! They managed to build our wardrobes quickly and to a fantastic standard. They were transparent throughout, moved the work forward when they had gaps in the schedule and didn't upsell us for things we don't need. Thanks Zephyr, Rory, Veronica and the team 😊

I got Humphries cabinets to install some bespoke shelves a couple of years ago. When it comes to furniture, I feel like a late review is always useful - I can confirm these shelves have stood the rest of time! Almost 2 years on, they look as good as new, and the experience was excellent. Would recommend to anyone.

We had our bedroom cabinets done by Humphries Cabinets and can't recommend them enough. Super professional and very quick. Since we had a builder provided wardrobe, it was going to be a tricky one to get another cabinet next to it without it looking out of place. But Zephyr guided us very nicely and explained to us our options. Veronica was super quick in getting the drawings to us and responded to all our questions in an efficient and professional manner. We did an end moment change in the handle design and Veronica did manage to cater to that. She even managed to get us slotted in an earlier available day. Rory, who came on the day to fit/make the cabinets was very professional and so quick. The job was so well done and the end product looks amazing. All in all, we had a very good experience.
