Treske's Kitchens are designed and made in-house by expert cabinet makers with a vast wealth of experience that enables us to continually produce superior quality solid wood kitchens designed specifically to each clients requirements. Our family business is proud of the relationship we build with our clients. We believe the passion and attention to detail we invest in each project is key to our success.
We will move at a pace to suit you. Generally speaking, following your enquiry and a discussion about your kitchen with a kitchen designer, we will be ready to present an initial design within two weeks. Dependant on feedback, changes will be made and a full design and costing will take up to a further two weeks.
Following your order a survey is undertaken by the designer and the project manager who will be responsible for your kitchen installation. This results in very accurate measurements enabling the design to be modelled further, to create accurate drawings for the factory.
The work in the factory, from the receipt of the designs, takes between 8 to 10 weeks to be transformed from the raw materials to your kitchen. During this process you are welcome to visit to see your kitchen being made.
Once made the kitchen is checked alongside the ordered appliances before installation. Installation generally takes two weeks. The first week sees cabinets fitted and the surfaces templated. The second week sees the work-surfaces installed and plumbing connected.
Treske always aim to install your kitchen with the least amount of fuss and disturbance. The whole process of design and specification can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on build complexity and the need to work with complimentary trades. The process of physically installing your new kitchen would normally be completed within a two week period.
Treske will always install your kitchen with highly trained and experienced craftsmen who are specialist cabinet makers and kitchen fitters either from our own workforce or from trusted specialist fitters we work regularly with.
Yes - Although most of the kitchens we design for customers are in Yorkshire and the North East, Treske are proud of the fact that we have installed kitchens the length and breadth of the UK and we continue to do so on a regular basis.
As a designer and maker of the very highest quality kitchens you might be pleasantly surprised at the competitive price. The cabinetry element of any kitchen may only be 50% of the overall project cost, as the final price of a kitchen is heavily dependent upon choice of appliances, work surfaces etc. As a general guide Treske cabinetry would normally cost around £30,000 to £40,000 for the typical sized kitchen.
Treske utilise the most appropriate and durable materials in the construction of all their kitchens and where possible solid hardwood is used.
An example of where solid wood is not appropriate would be for kitchen carcases or internal frameworks as this would add cost unnecessarily and be a wasteful use of valued timber for sections never seen.
A kitchen carcase is the internal framework of a kitchen.
Treske carcases are made from 19mm veneered oak medium density fibreboard as standard, however, if you would like something different to our standard we can discuss that with you.
We never use chipboard or MFC (melamine faced chipboard)
The furniture is first spray primed, then painted in the workshop before the final coat is applied once it is fitted in your kitchen.
Treske supply and install many different types of kitchen work surfaces. Granite, Corian, wood and quartz are popular choices but Treske designers will always advise on the most suitable surface to suit your individual requirements.
Treske have two acknowledged appliance partners in Miele and Neff. We have a wealth of happy clients who assure us that the quality and service of these two major manufacturers are the perfect match for your new Treske kitchen. However as we have close links in the industry we are happy to supply your own personal choice of appliances to suit your exact requirements.
Cabinet doors that are within a traditional frame are called In-frame, while those that lie over the carcass with no frame around them are Lay-on. In-frame give a traditional look to a kitchen but require more work to make, and do also work with a wide choice of hinge styles. Both styles are extremely useful for different situations, for example the kitchen might be In-frame but the utility might be Lay-on while both could use the same door style to provide a design link and continuity.
We give a full guarantee on all our products, guaranteeing against any faulty component or material, or any failure in normal use, occurring within two years of purchase. In practice we would look after our customers kitchens for far longer should it be necessary as our reputation for quality care and attention is important to us.
Not usually - the way we construct our kitchens means they are much more complex than the usual kitchens 'boxes' and we would strongly recommend that you use our highly skilled installation teams.

We will move at a pace to suit you. Generally, following your enquiry and a discussion about your furniture with the designer, a design will be presented within about two weeks. After this discussion, if necessary, our designer will add any alterations. Once the design is given the go ahead from you, we hand it over to our workshop team.
The essence of Treske is that we are not mass producers, and each piece of furniture is treated as a new and individual commission. We work closely with our customers to tailor the furniture to their requirements, and this involves the timber choice and its finish and colour. The design may be an adaptation of an existing item in our range, or in many cases is conceived as a completely new solution to the customers specific needs and aesthetic.
Treske always aim to make your furniture with the least amount of fuss and disturbance. The whole process of design and specification can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on how fast we can work with you to progress designs. Generally, furniture takes 10 to 14 weeks to make once designs are agreed and the order placed, but this timescale is related to and dependant on how many orders we are committed to over the next few months.
Treske furniture is designed and made in-house by expert cabinet makers with a vast wealth of experience that enables us to continually produce superior bespoke furniture designed specifically to each client’s requirements. Our family business is proud of the relationship we build with our clients. We believe the passion and attention to detail we invest in each piece of furniture is key to our success.
We are one of the few British companies who actually design and make furniture, so what you buy can be matched in wood, style, finish and colour to the piece you may want to add to your collection in ten years time. Many customers, once they find us, come back time after time, to have different pieces made and to have resurfacing of tables or other alterations.
Treske are proud of the fact that we have not only made furniture for most locations in the UK but also send items of furniture abroad for customers including the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle and Far East. We have use trusted shippers to deliver your furniture.
Treske utilise the most appropriate and durable materials in the construction of all their furniture and where possible solid hardwood is used, but always with a preference to use solid hardwood whenever possible.
An example of where solid wood is not appropriate would be for wardrobe carcases or internal frameworks as this would add cost unnecessarily and be a wasteful use of valuable timber for sections never seen.
A flat panel constructed in solid timber is inherently unstable and can result in changes in shape and dimension.
It is possible to manufacture a carcase for a cabinet, large or small, using solid timbers only, but this requires the use of traditional framed and panel construction. This looks very attractive but does not readily suit the more contemporary design of furniture where a flat veneered panel may be more appropriate and cost effective.
Glass, metals and ceramics are all used if required. For example, a decorative leaded pane of glass in a cupboard door.
Treske wardrobe carcases are made using medium density fibreboard with a real wood veneer finish, with veneers available in a wide variety of timbers. If you would like something different please say, however veneers are normally used for constructional stability. Wardrobe doors are made in solid hard-wood for the more traditional designs, but may also be of veneered MDF, or a combination of veneered panel and solid hardwood, governed by the design of the furniture and its constructional needs. with many different hard woods available to choose from.
Treske use as standard a lacquer or an oil finish, but coloured oils and different sheen levels of lacquer are also available. Treske also stain or fume to produce a desired effect or to match your existing furniture, but this can depend on the wood chosen. We will advise you on woods and finishes.
Yes – Treske painted furniture is painted in the client's choice of colour. We have brochures to hand in our showroom from Little Green, Zoffany and Farrow and Ball. If you're matching existing interior colours we can colour match the paint for you.
The furniture is first spray primed, then depending on your finish preference either hand painted or sprayed again. A spray finish will be very smooth, while hand painting will leave some brush marks.
Cabinet doors that are within a traditional frame are called In-frame, while those that lie over the carcass with no frame around them are Lay-on (this is often seen in kitchens). In-frame give a traditional look to a cabinet but require more work to make, but also do work with a wide choice of more traditional hinge styles. These can often be of quite distinctive style and character and are available in many metal finishes. Lay on doors are usually fitted with the self-closing and adjustable type of hinge and are hidden when the doors are closed.
We give a full guarantee on all our products, guaranteeing against any faulty component or material, or any failure in normal use, occurring within two years of purchase. In practice we look after our customers furniture for far longer than the two years should it be necessary as our reputation for quality care and attention is important to us.
