Bespoke fitted furniture for living rooms and bedrooms is a great way to maximise living space and incorporate a little bit of style into your home.

How often do you wish you had more cupboard space? The family is growing, everyone seems to have more and more “stuff” and there seems to be less and less room to store it and maintain some order in our busy lives.

We understand your frustration and we are here to help you

Bespoke fitted furniture for living rooms and bedrooms is a great way to maximise your storage capacity and free-up your living space whilst adding beauty and value to your home.

Eric Bates & Sons is an independent furniture design and manufacturing company with a rich heritage in Norfolk. The family business is rooted firmly in the furniture business and in recent years has extended its portfolio to include beautiful bespoke fitted kitchens and home furnishings, all handmade in our factory in Hoveton on the Norfolk Broads.

With no set style or fixed ideas the range of high quality furniture we can offer means there is something for every home and every room. Manufactured in the traditional way in beautiful high quality timber we offer both traditional and modern designs to complement the style of building whilst embracing your personal style and vision for your home. All our furniture is finished in-house using top quality polish and paint products ensuring it remains robust and durable for everyday living.

The process is very simple. When deciding on your next project take a moment to browse our website www.batesfurniture.co.uk where we showcase some of our recent projects, all photographed as end products in use in customers’ homes. We then recommend that you come and see us in our showrooms in Hoveton where we have a number of display rooms that you can look at in detail and speak to a member of our team in a relaxed and informal setting with no hard sell or expectation from us.

If you like what you see and feel we can offer you the product you are looking for and the service you expect we would then arrange to visit you at home to discuss your requirements in more detail. We can then make suggestions on how to make the most of your space and offer those all-important storage solutions including long and short hanging areas, jewellery trays [including secure concealed storage options] shoe and coat racks to name just a few.

Your project will then go to our design team who will turn these discussions into stunning full colour 3D design images which bring your thought processes to life and allow you to see your dream as a reality.

All our furniture is built at our premises in Hoveton. A dedicated team of trained cabinet makers use time-honoured traditional methods of manufacture including dovetail joints on drawers, mortice & tenon joints and hand cut glazing bars on glass front doors. All to ensure strength and durability. All our products are then hand-finished by a team of skilled polishers.

Bespoke fitted furniture gives you the dream kitchen or living space you always wanted. The company’s ethos is to bring people’s dreams to life and we do our best to fulfil this with beautiful unique products for your home.

Our enthusiasm for our product we think is clear and the whole team feels strongly about the advantages of bespoke furniture. There is no concern about pieces not fitting in the room, or not matching existing much loved items. Everything is designed to complement the room, the environment, and your vision. Our designs will accommodate all your media requirements that are now ingrained in modern living and we work closely with other agents in this area to ensure a clean and fuss free finished product for TVs, games consoles and IT equipment.

Remember us next time you think you have outgrown your beautiful home. You likely haven’t, it just needs a bit of organising and we look forward to helping you achieve this.
