We had found the house we loved and wanted our own bespoke kitchen. Bryan came highly recommended from my sister. The minute we met him in his showroom we knew we would love this whole process. We fell in love with the showstopping kitchen he showed us and his enthusiasm in letting us modify it to suit our space was infectious! Nothing seemed a problem and his expertise and love of his craft was so obvious. When it came to fitting, He, Mike and Richie were as good humoured as they were professional and they made our beautiful bedroom built ins as well as some wall units in the utility room. We absolutely love every inch of our kitchen. As well as having the wow factor, it is a pleasure to work in. It is good to know that getting your dream kitchen is possible and the journey can be smooth! Our highest recommendations. Fiona and Pat

Testimonial Bryan O Rourke of Aubie Fitted Furniture I met Bryan on a project that we were both brought into in 2014 and we have worked on all types of projects since then some very small some very large. No matter what the size of project Bryan is very professional in his approach and is always interested whether the project is big or small. Aubie Fitted Furniture have provided my clients over the years with the best possible bespoke designs and hand made fitted furniture for all size projects large and small. Bryan’s love & passion for what he does shows in every single job and put’s his heart and soul into each job making every client feel like they are his only client. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bryan & his team at Aubie Fitted Furniture to any friend or client.
