About us

Bath Kitchen Company is an independent family business that’s been operating in and around Bath for over 30 years. Every kitchen we’ve ever made is unique, because every client is different. Inspired by your tastes, home and lifestyle, we create a bespoke kitchen that strikes the ideal balance between your aesthetic and practical needs.

James Horsfall

James learned the trade through a traditional apprenticeship under his father, working alongside skilled craftsmen and architects to gain practical knowledge of materials and design.

James has a wealth of expertise designing and creating bespoke kitchens for discerning clients and his goal is simple: to offer a more personal service – designing luxury kitchens, built by regional craftsmen, using quality materials. Over the decades, Bath Kitchen Company has become a local institution, with award winning kitchens at the heart of many beautiful homes.

Classically trained at the Sydney school of design, Sara is an accomplished designer with an eye for detail. The combination of her unique skills and passion create exceptional spaces.

“Can’t recommend Bath Kitchen Company highly enough. James has a great eye for design and really listens to clients’ individual requirements.

He’s incredibly helpful with any queries throughout the design and build process, and the workmen he uses are skilled and good to deal with.”

– Natasha

“During the widespread preliminary research, only James actually listened open-minded to an explanation of our particular needs and aspirations. Using his insight and experience, and without further to-ing and fro-ing, he produced an attractive design needing only minimal fine-tuning.

All those who then played their parts in the fitting-out sequence proved efficient and amiable, contributing greatly to a stress-free and fulfilling process. We are delighted with our kitchen, which is just what we were looking for.”

 – Judith & Stephen

“I would like to express my appreciation for the excellent job you did in fitting my new kitchen.

James was very helpful in helping me to decide what might work best, and in suggesting new ways of improving storage and access space.

Your fitter and his Team were excellent and did their best to minimise disruption. They could not have been more courteous or helpful.”

– Tim & Angela


Bath Kitchen Company was established in 1990 at a time when kitchens were becoming commoditised and depersonalised by national chains. The goal was simple: to offer a more personal service – designing luxury kitchens, built by regional craftsmen, using quality materials. Over the decades, Bath Kitchen Company has become a local institution, with our award winning kitchens at heart of many of Bath’s most beautiful homes.

Initial Consultation

At Bath Kitchen Company, we’ve never believed in impersonal showrooms. We don’t want you to be interrupted by other customers, pressured into making decisions, or swayed by ideas that aren’t completely ‘you’. So every project begins with a personal visit. It’s about gaining a deep sense of who you are and how you live. It’s also an opportunity to discuss initial ideas, styles, colours and materials in a relaxing environment.


James personally designs every kitchen. Working from his studio in central Bath, he experiments with layouts, worktop materials, cabinet colours and integrated technology – transforming that initial conversation into a set of cohesive designs that meet your brief and reflect your character. Once you’ve seen a 3D visualisation of the new space, the process of fine-tuning begins: reviewing samples and carefully deciding on every last detail – from the size of the island to the shape of the handles.


When creating a bespoke kitchen, there are no standard sizes – everything is made to order.

We individually craft or source every element of the kitchen including, islands and worktops, sinks, taps and splashbacks, cupboards, pantries and storage, tiling, doors and handles, appliances, lighting and seating areas.

Experienced and passionate, our kitchen-makers are craftsmen in the truest sense. They combine the latest skills and technology with an old-fashioned pride in their work – hand-made with care and precision. Whether it’s local oak or imported Italian marble, walnut cabinets or brass panelling, we extract maximum beauty from your chosen materials.


At this exciting finale, detailed project management takes place in the preceding weeks: access is carefully planned, material deliveries are synchronised, cookers and fridges may need large teams to carry them, or specialist expertise may be required for assembly. But this is what we love – bringing your vision to life. And this is where our experience really counts.
