Open Days Fri. 21st & Sat 22nd Sept.

Posted on September 10th, 2012 by martinb

For 55 years Barratt & Swann have been quietly creating unique Kitchens – Bedrooms – Studies – Furniture & Staircases. We’ve always relied on “word of mouth” to advertise our bespoke service. But in these challenging times more is required, so we’ve decided to take the opportunity of our 55th year in business to either introduce or catchup with as many local people as possible. Once here we can give you a taste of the current fashions in the bespoke Kitchen & Bedroom world, from the Modern Contemporary market place to traditional classic designs, and all in between.

We have a huge collection of photos from past jobs to draw inspiration from as well as 6 decades of experience in the bespoke industry both making & designing, enabling us to create what ever you are dreaming of, perfect for you.
