Our kitchens are beautiful, solid and built to last. But with the environment at the forefront of our minds as a more globally aware population, this just isn't enough. With climate change rapidly descending on our planet, it's up to us as individuals to do our best to make more conscious decisions to help reduce our carbon footprint and slow the destruction of the planet. Something we at Thomas James Bespoke are passionate about.
We pride ourselves on being more eco-friendly than leading high-street chains for numerous reasons, including how we source our materials. We only use the highest quality wood from Forest Stewardship Council (or FSC) assured suppliers, which continue to care for the environment, improving forest management worldwide. The wood we carefully and skillfully craft into your finished kitchen is proudly sustainable and environmentally friendly.
As a local, UK based company, choosing us for your next project means reducing the carbon footprint of your finished design. With fewer miles travelled, through both installation and sourcing of products, we're limiting the amount of harmful gases expelled during the entire process. By considering packaging and transport, we are able to minimise the amount of unnecessary waste such as plastic and styrofoam, further reducing our carbon footprint.
Our strong partnerships with local businesses such as Shaws of Darwen ensures this practice is continued down to the finer details. Furthermore, Quooker- our go-to for stunning and functional taps- are heavily invested in eco-friendly solutions to everyday needs. With their innovative boiling water feature, they ensure you only use the exact amount of water every time- no more waste from over-filling the kettle and reboiling time again because it's cooled down. The instantaneous ice-cold or piping hot water is produced via their thermos-like system, using much less energy each time.
Our kitchens come with a 25-year guarantee, meaning you can rely on the quality of materials used and craft involved to stand the test of time. Additionally, you won't be rushing to replace hinges, doors or other fittings, further improving our sustainability. Our exclusive and vast colour palette has recently changed from solvent to eco-friendly water-based paint, which emits fewer harmful gases and is overall better for the environment and people's health.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, and making sustainable and thoughtful choices now means you will have peace of mind for years to come, not only in terms of quality but also in reducing your impact on the environment and ultimately adding value to your home.
