"Heaven and Stubbs" are a local company who were recommended to us by a friend. Without hesitation or second thought I would highly recommend Howard and his fantastic team to anyone planning a kitchen, bathroom, study or indeed anything else, as they are able to turn their hand to pretty much any project.
Their motto is "anything is possible" and this positive attitude is implemented from day one and is carried on throughout the project. Planning, manufacture, installation and finishing touches are carried out to the highest of standards. Communication with the client is respected and fully demonstrated at all times and the workforce carry out all tasks with the utmost respect for the clients possessions and property.
We have moved and renovated many houses and have used a wide variety of builders and kitchen companies along the way. I can honestly say that none have met the standards of Heaven & Stubbs. Companies in glossy magazines can promise you the perfect kitchen, but simply cannot deliver that promise - believe me, I have spoken to all of them!
If you need further evidence about Heaven & Stubbs you are more than welcome to come and look at my kitchen and see for yourself the finished product - it is truly amazing!
It must be almost three years ago that I first met Howard who had been commissioned by a builder to design a bespoke kitchen for me. I was impressed by his professionalism, eye for detail and that he listened and could somehow put my thoughts and visions to paper. Unfortunately, we never did proceed with the purchase of the property, but I vowed that when the time came, I would definitely contact Heaven & Stubbs to create my ultimate kitchen.
Well that time came and it is not often one has the opportunity to create a vast kitchen that is sleek, elegant and functional, moulded together by timeless craftsmanship. New, innovative and diverse challenges are what Heaven & Stubbs thrive on to achieve their client's ultimate objective.
Heaven & Stubbs are made up of highly skilled, efficient and experienced craftsmen and my kitchen is indicative of their uniqueness. I have no reservation in saying that it has been a privilege working with them and together we have surpassed my expectations.
I also commissioned Heaven & Stubbs to create a library, laundry and study. There were never any excused for late delivery and every project was done with the same dedication, perfection and professionalism.

We asked Heaven & Stubbs to design and fit another kitchen and utility room for us when we moved house. New design software helped us to visualise a kitchen in a room that had previously been left bare.
The new kitchen contained a very large oak-topped island as its centre piece. All went according to plan and on time again and we are delighted with the result. We are currently looking at plans for a study, a den and some free-standing furniture for the bathroom.
The team at Heaven and Stubbs are excellent; attentive, polite and very conscientious in their work. From planning through to installation the service and care were exemplary.
Julie & Adrian Clitheroe
We originally commissioned Heaven & Stubbs to build some fitted wardrobes in our master bedroom and it was clear from the outset that the company was a breath of fresh air compared with the many others we had encountered while renovating our house. Three years on and they have built and fitted thee bathrooms with cabinets and framed mirrors, made and fitted essential shelves for our children's bedrooms and family room, built a recessed cabinet with shelving in our snug, fitted a fabulous study complete with a beautiful oak desk and last but not least designed and built a stunning bespoke kitchen and utility room.
Howard takes a collaborative approach when designing each project and is always open to ideas and suggestions. The 3D drawings Howard produced for the kitchen helped us enormously to visualise the final layout and allowed us to fine tune the design to achieve the exact look and finish we required. The finished product exceeds our expectations and gave the kitchen the wow factor.
The quality of workmanship has always been excellent and the team of cabinetmakers and fitters are always courteous and respectful, ensuring that each day the room they were working in was left clean and tidy.
We are delighted with all the projects we have commissioned Heaven & Stubbs to build and we would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for quality workmanship from a company who quite simply does what they say they are going to do and does it well!
Sue & Ken
A thoroughly professional but personal service from Howard and his team - we are delighted with our new kitchen! The workmanship and attention to detail was excellent together with the after sales service when snagging issues arose (fundamental in our book). We would recommend Heaven and Stubbs to anyone contemplating having a new bespoke kitchen.
We are immensely pleased with our new kitchen. It's a very elegant job, beautifully designed and finished. Nothing was too challenging, even the specially made handles. The work progressed swiftly and smoothly, according to plan and the fitters were a pleasure to have about. The detailing is admirable; bespoke really means bespoke, clever cupboards, lovely oak drawers. Howard's problem solving is impressive, he translated my wishes in to well thought out working designs and then added super quality. Even emptying the dishwasher is no longer a chore!
Thank you Heaven and Stubbs, we're very glad we found you.
Delightful. To be engaged with a company totally prepared to go out of its way to ensure we were treated to a kitchen that met our high expectations. As customers we felt valued, and it was so good being able to discuss changes and any concerns throughout the process that were met with understanding and solutions.
"We can do that" seemed to come naturally from all those we met at Heaven & Stubbs.
The Fitters have a real pride in what they do, but then again they would, as they are some of the actual craftsmen who made our cabinets, and it is this pride which emanates throughout our kitchen that we still enjoy each and every day.
Thank you so much for such a positive experience providing a beautiful kitchen in this frantic world!
Keith & Sue
Thank you very much for our new kitchen! It has turned out much better than we could have ever imagined, the craftsmanship and quality are superb!
We will need an Oak study in the near future!
Best of success
Having worked with various craftsmen in my time, I can say with conviction that dealing with Heaven and Stubbs comes at the top of my list of pleasant experiences of that kind. From my first contact, our encounters were entirely pleasurable. All my requests were met (and several more besides) and all discussions were calm and efficient, as was the planning and installation. All those associated with the kitchen - Howard, Chris, Dan, Toby and Paul, and unseen others - did terrific work, in which they took pride, and were a complete pleasure to deal with - as well as being really nice guys. I would recommend them to anyone and much regret myself that I shan't have an occasion to call upon their skills again soon.
With respect, gratitude and best wishes,
We are so delighted with our new kitchen from 'Heaven & Stubbs'. Everything from the design aspect at the very beginning, to the fitting and after-sales follow-up has been perfect.
After hearing so many stories about how things can go wrong ,we were so impressed by their skilled craftsmanship, attention to detail and the ability to listen to want we actually wanted and needed.
Everything went according to plan and the end result has been an absolutely stunning kitchen which our family and friends have all been so impressed with.
I couldn't fault them at all and we would have no hesitation in recommending them and their work.
We were looking to have a new kitchen in the house we have lived in for several years. Our Son in Law recommended us to Heaven & Stubbs.
We had a long design process with Howard Stubbs as we hadn't done anything on the house for years, so we wanted to make sure that what we were having we would be happy with for a long time.
The whole process went very smoothly and the end result is just what we wanted.
We would very much recommend the company in all aspects of there business, infact we now have another project for them soon.

In praise of Heaven & Stubbs Bespoke Furniture! - Ingleton Kitchen 2005
Heaven & Stubbs came to us through recommendation from a friend. We began planning our kitchen in a very haphazard way, adding onto the design and scope of the project as we went along. Howard Stubbs patiently put up with our last minute dreams and inspired amendments until we had very clear plans, drawings and pricing in place. The project was for a large scale kitchen (one of the largest they had done) in a completely new location in the house.
Despite reservations about having a company doing major work in the house whilst we were on holiday, we were extremely pleased that all the messy and noisy jobs (knocking down walls, ripping up floors, plumbing, electrics, false ceilings) had been completed in our absence, leaving us to watch the kitchen units themselves go in (by far the most exciting phase!).
All went to plan, on time and on budget, with Stuart Heaven and his team overseeing every aspect of the installation. They were able to accommodate last minute changes to the design and were very flexible about how they worked around our family life (much of the work was completed with a toddler underfoot).
The resulting bespoke kitchen is very much how we had hoped and has been beautifully finished with touches that make it stand out from a mass produced model. Furthermore we have invited them back to do the cabinetry for our study.
Howard spent a great deal of time with us at the design stage, making a number of creative and helpful suggestions to ensure we were fully satisfied with the final plan.
The quality of the units is excellent and the craftsmen were flexible and professional ensuring minimum disruption.
We are delighted with our beautiful kitchen and thoroughly recommend Heaven & Stubbs to anyone who is considering a similar project.

Upper Wardington, Banbury
We have recently used Heaven and Stubbs to make additional cupboards for our hand made oak kitchen and have been delighted with their work from start to finish. Howard fully understood our needs and made many visits to our home in order to ensure that we would be happy with the final design.
Communication with the company was outstanding, emails and phone calls were quickly answered, and they provided a highly professional standard of service throughout.
The finished cupboards are fantastic, the workmanship and attention to detail is exemplary. On the day of fitting the cupboards, the whole team worked with incredible efficiency and left their work area spotless.
We found Howard and Stubbs by driving past their base and just called in to have a chat and look at examples of work in their show room. I have already recommended Howard and Stubbs to friends and our new cupboards have been admired by many visitors!
Epwell, Banbury - Kitchen
The planning, building and after care for our kitchen from Heaven & Stubbs has been fantastic. The whole process was handled with the utmost professionalism and Howard has been a delight to work with.
Hope you are all well,
Just to re-iterate our thanks for the island unit with which we are very pleased indeed.
Thanks for the very punctual delivery of our island unit. We are delighted with it. It is beautifully made and finished and complements our kitchen just as we would have wished if not better. Your craftsmen were professional, friendly and helpful at all times.
Best wishes and thanks,
Douglas and Anne Boyle.
Shutford - Kitchen
Living in an old cottage possessing a very difficult kitchen floor layout, we felt it would be very hard for us to find a new kitchen "off the shelf", as we simply had to make the best use of the limited available space. But from the moment we elected to give our tentative ideas to Heaven and Stubbs, we knew that we had made the right decision to source a bespoke approach.
Plans were drafted and redrafted, in order to incorporate the new ideas that emerged during our consultation process. Nothing was too much trouble - in fact, several ideas suggested by Howard were so impressive that we incorporated them into the final plans.
Then what a joy it was to see our kitchen emerge! To say that our new kitchen was "constructed" would not do justice to the highly professional and amenable team that worked with such care and precision. As a result, we feel that we have a kitchen that has been crafted with pride, and we have no doubt that it will be a focal point of our home for many years to come.
Thank you - all of you - for a wonderful and unique service; we would not hesitate to recommend you!
