We are a small independent design, make and manage business that focuses on delivering good design and high quality items for the home.
We understand the importance of design when it comes to making quality kitchens, bathroom joinery, furniture and built in storage. This understanding allows us to work along side architects, designers and builders as well as produce our own original works.
We wanted to be able to do it all for our clients, design, make and manage projects for all things relating to the home so have obtained nationally recognised qualifications in cabinet making, project management, design and business.
Welcome to Smith and Others.
We make houses into homes.
