With vast expertise and an unrivalled passion for creative design, The Main Company have been creating handcrafted, naturally bespoke kitchens for over 40 years. Combining organic design and meticulous craftsmanship, The Main Company pride themselves on using the very best in new, salvaged and reclaimed materials to deliver custom-made designs abound with distinctive charm and individuality. The use of reclaimed wood and copper are just a couple of the materials that The Main Company chooses to create its truly bespoke kitchens. Engineering original wood for flooring, wall cladding, kitchens, bed heads or individual tailored pieces of furniture is one of the company’s prized skills. No piece of wood is identical, no kitchen the same – each piece of timber has a unique history.
The Main Company’s onsite kilns in North Yorkshire allow all the timber to be dried to the correct moisture content prior to order. As one of only a few companies in the UK that engineer reclaimed timber flooring that is also compatible with underfloor heating, The Main Company’s state-of-the-art machinery ensures that flooring can be re-machined to the highest of standards.
Alex Main, Director at The Main Company, comments: “With the recent rise in awareness for sustainability and eco-conscious materials filtering through to design, reclaimed wood is a great option that not only considers the environment but also introduces an authentic charm to the kitchen.”
From cabinetry to engineered flooring, reclaimed wood has many uses in the kitchen and is celebrated for its unique surface texture that only improves with age. Repurposing timber not only provides the material with a new lease of life but also introduces a rich design history to a kitchen design that doesn’t compromise.
A family run business since 1978, the kitchens are handcrafted by skilled joiners in the North Yorkshire workshop and meticulously fitted into homes across the country. Incorporating both modern and traditional design, The Main Company seeks to bring authentic character and charm to today’s homes through its naturally individual designs, unique textures and finishes.
