Hello, thanks for taking the time to take a look at our Checkatrade page. 

Principle Kitchens & Carpentry is a family run business established in 2010 by Peter Hodgins, an experienced carpenter with more than 15 years of quality builds under his belt. In the last seven years, the business has experienced rapid growth and built a reputation founded on referrals. 

Whether you are here because you want to remodel your existing kitchen or if you want to rip the old one out and create something brand new, we have three core pillars that we apply to every job to ensure we continue to achieve the best results for our customers

DESIGN - We have over 15 years of experience in the building industry. Our team of carpenters, builders, plumbers and electricians are all trusted and talented experts in their field. We work with you to help you reach the best design solution and, ultimately, your perfect kitchen.

TRUST - We’re proud of our work and the lasting relationships we’ve made along the way speak volumes about how we conduct our business. We understand that a new kitchen brings a period of upheaval and change and we’re sympathetic to this. We pride ourselves on punctuality, cleanliness and clear communication.

DELIVER - We work with you no matter how far along the line you are! If you’ve got your plans, know what kitchen you want and you’re ready to go then contact us to arrange a site visit with Peter. If you’re just getting started then pick our brains and let us use our extensive knowledge to help you chose a kitchen design that will best suit your taste and budget.

We enjoy what we do, and our ultimate aim is a satisfied customer who will continue to recommend us to their family and friends. We understand that your home is the biggest investment you will make and we are passionate about producing work of the highest standard that adds value to your property and your lives.
