Newhaven Kitchens & Bedrooms are a Carlow based company specialising in bespoke fitted kitchens and wardrobes.

We specialise in designing and appointing bespoke kitchens and bedrooms of the highest quality to suit the individual styles and tastes of our customers. What sets us apart is our dedication to quality and our focus on the latest in kitchen design.

At Newhaven Kitchens we GUARANTEE that you will not get a kitchen or bedroom of the same quality at a better price anywhere else in Leinster.

Our Specifications

Your Kitchen Carcass:
All of our kitchens come with an 18mm carcass as standard (many kitchen companies only supply a 15mm carcass).  This provides extra strength and rigidity.  This extends the lifespan of your kitchen.  Our carcasses are machine edged – so you can be sure that your edgings wont fall off or deteriorate.  We do not use iron-on edging.

Your Drawers:
Many modern and contemporary kitchens feature wider drawers.  We use Meaton soft closing drawers in our standard kitchens – or Blum soft closing drawers in our Deluxe range.  Each of our kitchen drawers can take a load of 30kg so that you can be sure that your drawers can hold all of your pots and pans without damaging the kitchen drawer.  All drawers have quality approvals and test ratings.

Your Hinges:
All of our hinges are soft close hinges from a company called Blum. We work with Blum hinges as they are the market leader and have the best track record for quality.  Blum hinges are certified with ISO quality certificates.  See for yourself:

Our Worktops:
We source from the very best manufacturers. We can offer:

  • Quartz Worktops – from a large range of suppliers – Silestone, Compac, Quarella, Continental & Cambria to name some.
  • Granite Worktops.
  • Solid Surfacing from LG.
  • Solid Wood kitchen worktops.
  • Laminate Worktops from suppliers such as Topform, Micapost & Westag & Getalit

Ironmongery, Bins, Wirework & Accessories:
Are all sourced from leading Irish suppliers such as Springhill Woodcrafts, Flanagans Fittings, Hafele.

Your Painted Kitchen: 
We have our own spray facility so we can literally build your kitchen in any colour you want – working with reliable palettes.  We work from our own custom colours and from known paint producers such as Farrow & Ball, Little Greene or Colortrend.

We offer the latest in kitchen appliances from a range of high quality brands.  Our showroom features appliances from  Hotpoint & Indesit – the only appliance house to support their products with a 10 year parts warranty on their products – but we can supply most leading brands.

Why outline all of this?

We provide you with this information because we have nothing to hide. We’re proud of what we do and what makes up our kitchens.
Unlike other firms we are not obligated to provide only pre-set designs because of supplier contracts. We have a completely organic design philosophy and as such we are committed to sitting down with the client and finding out exactly what they want, how they want it and providing a full range of colours, finishes and materials to choose from.

As we design and create everything to your specific requirements you are guaranteed a uniqueness and style that is completely yours. You outline your dream to us and we make it a reality.

The core of the firm is the years of combined experience that our team brings to the table, each member bringing a range of complimentary skills. Our business has been born from our intense passion for kitchen design and woodcraft, and our dedication to high quality products and customer satisfaction.

Our showroom is a testament to the diversity of options and choices which are out there, we constantly search across the world for new ideas and designs to ensure that our customers are offered the very best in both creativity and craftsmanship.

So take the Newhaven Kitchens challenge and see if you can find a bespoke kitchen of similar design and quality anywhere in Leinster for a better price. We GUARANTEE that you won’t.
