Brandler London kitchens are all bespoke creations. Every kitchen is a unique composition of our favoured raw materials, which are tailored to fit our clients’ finish and colour palettes. We pride ourselves on offering an extremely personalised service, making kitchens for a relatively small number of clients each year, ensuring the kitchens are all unique to their owners. Additionally, each reclaimed board that we use will have its own grain, weathering, and depth of texture, giving you an individual kitchen finish.
We offer a full kitchen design and build service, including retrofitted lighting designed to maximise the dramatic textural finishes. All installed to our exacting standards.
An Edwardian house refurbishment, this kitchen is formed of two existing rooms and extending into the garden with bi-fold doors and a glass roof. Reclaimed wood beams, exposed steels, and original Benjamin Electric pendant lights create a domestic, industrial feel. The raw, reclaimed barn wood used on the tall kitchen units and kitchen island are illuminated from above to highlight their deeply weathered surfaces. The open shelving spans the back kitchen wall, with concrete surfaces below. This kitchen is designed to be highly functional and unique to the owners who cook three meals a day at home. The handles are routed into the doors creating recessed pockets in the wood, backed with steel plate. A built-in storage unit and reclaimed wood bookcase for the owners’ cookbooks was constructed with hydroponic lighting system to feed and nurture the clients’ herbs.The interior of the extension is clad with a light coloured, reclaimed pine, accessorised with plants with the aim to create a jungle canopy.
Now owned by Tom Daley, the penthouse unit in Brandler London warehouse conversion offers a glimpse into a property purchased by a British sporting icon. Reclaimed joists removed from the warehouse were given a new life and reinstalled as the bespoke kitchen doors, shelves and island. This kitchen and dining room of this three-level penthouse use the midlevel floor exclusively, creating the hub of the property. It is a space designed specifically for cooking, dining, entertaining, and relaxation. Concrete, metal, and wood come together in a stunning composition of orthogonal lines.

To bring this dark basement to life, we substantially raised the ceiling height and added a mezzanine. We used LED lighting on the shelves, alcoves, and beams to permit ambient mood lighting and illuminate every detail. The movement of the open space design with altering levels from the kitchen to the living space and with the materials of wood, stone, and metal, all come together and give this room its own unique identity.

A Brandler London kitchen of one of our favourite repeat clients. They opted for the a mixture of Raw and Native barn wood cladding which provides a satisfying composition of reclaimed wood. Our Cabinet makers spent a meticulous amount of time making the internal cabinetry. This was a long process starting with charring and sanding the wood cabinets, repeating this process followed oiling and sanding which is again repeat several times to get the desired affect. We applied a white hardwax oil to finish the cabinets and against the charred black wood have a beautiful affect in the grain of the wood. The handles we routed into the kitchen doors and kitchen drawer fronts, with acid etched and lacquered steel back plates. This creates and industrial kitchen in a contemporary design.

The main tall wardrobes are fitted out with central sliding shoe rack, with plenty of hanging rail space, and integrated drawers. The wardrobes on either side of the vanity frame the garden view providing supplemental storage. The space was re-wired with retrofit lighting and a discreet built-in sound system.
Tom Daley's Wardrobes
These wardrobes bristle with all of the original character of the converted warehouse in which this project is located. The reclaimed wood used here is embedded with numerated rusted nails that were part of a foot long measurement system, revealing a glimpse of the inner workings of a warehouse built in the hops processing era.

This loft conversion is a master bedroom, crafted and restyled by Brandler London using numerous types of wood. The main wardrobes here are constructed out of reclaimed wood from a beekeepers barn in continental Europe, with the horizontal wood grain arrangement appearing like the storms of Jupiter.

The down lighting creates dramatic shadows on the wardrobe fronts and illuminates the inside when the doors are opened. These wardrobes wrap around the perimeter of the room with glass shelves, concretes worktops, and a vanity unit with a number of built-in drawers and LED up lighting. The vanity surface culminates with a drop into a laundry alcove. A line of light coloured pine doors house a run of low-level hanging wardrobe space with more storage behind.

Brandler London can design and build all types of bespoke furniture, from vanity or AV units, to massive steel and reclaimed wood tables or beds. We are very passionate about helping people with creative and playful projects. No idea is too outrageous. Therefore, we encourage our clients to tell us all of their imaginative ideas, unrestrained. However, if you would like us to take the creative lead in designing a unique space or piece of furniture we’d be delighted to assist, from indoor trees houses to arts and crafts work areas, from kids bedrooms to secret passageways.
Combining warm wood, raw metal, and tufted silk velvet, the Brandler Bed fits well in a modern design context while maintaining the character and comfort one wants in a bedroom. The base is visually grounded with large planks of honey-toned reclaimed wood that serve to conceal practical under-bed storage. The headboard is upholstered and hand-tufted in a deep blue velvet adding a classic sense of luxury and a soft place to rest one’s head. The steel frame ties these two materials together and adds a sleek industrial flavour to the domestic piece of furniture.
Brandler beds are built bespoke and can therefore be customised with each client’s style or storage needs.

This piece maintains the signature Brandler London look of reclaimed wood and raw materials all while surviving the wear and tear of a bathroom’s daily routine.
Our Interior Architecture
Our structural reclaimed wood can be used for a wide range of internal applications from beams to cladding, staircases to doors, or even tree houses. We have wood in all shapes, sizes, and types to suit your needs. As long as it’s reclaimed wood that you are after, you can be assured Brandler London can supply it.
In order to use aged materials that meet modern standards, we use hardwood for structural load bearing items, with larch and oak being our preferred species. If you are looking to add reclaimed wood for non-structural items, such as cladding for an existing stair or beam, we can offer a range of wood species to achieve your preferred look.
We also offer design and build of bespoke under-stair storage options, From sliding drawers for shoes and jackets to larger general storage cabinets, we can build a beautiful piece to tuck away all your household items. These can come in finishes of any of our wood varieties or painted to blend into surrounding walls.
Brandler London’s reclaimed wood can be used to clad interior or exterior walls, kitchen islands, beams, and a myriad of other areas. This aged wood cladding gives depth, warmth and texture to any space, helping to hide structural steels or unattractive surfaces on stairs and walls. These areas then take on a whole new personality at night, where lighting can be implemented to cast a play of shadow and illumination across the clad surfaces.
Our bespoke, reclaimed, and hand-crafted doors create a statement in the home or commercial premise. A door, often being the first thing you use when entering a building or room, gives a lasting impression. We create doors with big personality that aim to impress. We can design or replicate a door to your specification and manufacture it in our London workshop. We do not make any off-the-shelf products meaning the door we make for you will be completely unique.
We can apply a variety of finishes to the doors, as well as supply door furniture, hardware, and installation.

We use structural wood to construct our bespoke reclaimed wooden stairs. We only use structural hardwood for load bearing stair components, with larch and oak being our preferred options. If you are looking to clad existing stairs, we also offer beautifully aged pine.
Under Stair Storage
In addition to our stairs, we offer bespoke, space-saving under-stair storage options. We can design and build various storage units from sliding drawers for shoes and jackets to larger cabinets. These designs are available in any of the finishes of our wood varieties or painted to blend into adjacent walls.
Beams & Joists

If you’re looking to add the aesthetic of textured wood beams to your space, we we can supply the necessary pieces to complete the look. These reclaimed wood beams cannot always be used in a structural application but can be installed in non-load bearing capacities to give the appearance of timber construction to your otherwise plain space.
We’re always eager to work with clients who have innovative ideas in how they envision these materials to transform their space. If you have an idea in need of reclaimed wood beams, contact us to discuss.
When typical garden walls need more interest, our reclaimed wood supplies are used to create cladding and bespoke features to enliven the garden space. As most pieces are already suitable for outdoor use, these reclaimed wood planks used as garden cladding add warmth and texture to what would otherwise be a bare garden wall surface.
Our Barn Frames are created with particularly textured components. These weathered and character-filled focal points tie an outdoor space together with the same effect as your interior framed art or gallery wall.
Brandler London was commissioned to design and construct this colossal door for the fabulous Siouxsie Dickens, a freelance fashion stylist who designed the amazing Photographic Location House, Kempshott Road.
Made from reclaimed larch and painted black, these “doors” were designed to appear as two doors while actually being just one beast of a door. The painted surface still maintains the rich character of its 150 year old reclaimed material, with still visible dowel and nail holes, cracks, weathering and grain. The two different styles on each side of the door give additional depth and character. This door is fire-rated FD6 with smoke seals.
