Bespoke Carpentry Dunmow, Essex

Darren McLagan Kitchens


I can create either a full bespoke kitchen or provide a full kitchen fitting service for clients who have purchased a kitchen i.e. from MFI, Homebase, Ikea, B&Q, Wickes or any other company. I can also offer a kitchen refurbishment service including replacement worktops & doors.

Darren McLagan Kitchen and Storage


I can make fitted wardrobes in a variety of styles. As there are really no standard sizes and as everything is made from scratch in my workshop the available space is maximised so you can fit as much as possible into your wardrobe.

As I have said I can make your kitchen or bedroom to fit and I can solve your storage problems, BUT, did you know I can also provide the perfect gift for a wide range of ages?

Tailor made to suit your requirements


I have been trading as a carpenter in and around the Dunmow area since 1984.

Over the years my experience has grown and I have seen many trends/fashions come and go and come back again. Pine, painted wood, oak, sleek modern, the trends always seem to be swapping places as the ’in look’. Whatever the ’look’ is that you are after I will endeavour to deliver that aspiration.

I can tailor make from scratch; buy in and fit; or buy in, alter and fit. I have experience of working in older properties with those ’wonky’ walls and ceilings and can always find a solution to these challenges.

Over the years I have made many trusted contacts and friends in the trade. If you need recommendations for other services such as electricians, plumbers, builders, granite worktop suppliers etc. then please ask.

I do not have a showroom - preferring to keep my overheads low - and I have worked through recommendation since 1984, but there are of course examples of my work here on this site as well as some kind words from satisfied clients.

I work on my own - if you choose me then that’s who you get, not subcontractors or fitters, and my personal service is my strength - my golden rule is ’if you treat it as your own you can walk away with a clear conscience that you have done a good job to your best ability’.

What my client’s say...

"Dear Darren, thank you for designing and building the kitchen which we really wanted."
