Choosing Handles For Your Kitchen

Choosing handles for your kitchen is one of the many important decisions to make during the design process. There are many different options available, but our clients usually end up choosing from Armac Martin’s range of solid brass handles. They are available in a range of finishes, including Satin Brass, Burnished Brass, Satin Nickel and Satin Chrome. Each handle is made in their Birmingham factory and finished by hand.

Our favourite handle collections are now available to purchase from the Herringbone Pantry along with a selection of decorative tiles and stone flooring. There are a range of styles, traditional, industrial and contemporary handles. We have used all of these on our classic framed shaker door and we love that they are versatile designs that can be customised to reflect your own personal style.

We design and make bespoke kitchens from our studio and workshop in Canterbury. We are a family business and we believe that kitchens should be built to last, from first steps to first dates. For more examples of the handles our client’s have chosen, have a look at our Projects page where we post images of kitchens we have designed and made together.

If you have any questions about choosing handles for your kitchen we would love to help, you can drop us a message on Instagram, by email or just give us a call on 01227638066.

Tea for Ru

On Saturday 16th June we will be joining others from across the UK to raise awareness and money for RU's Fund. Ru was a very happy little boy, who sadly passed away last August after being diagnosed with a rare form of paediatric cancer. Since than his parent's have done an incredible job at raising funding and awareness for rare and underfunded paediatric cancers.


Ru had a malignant rhabdoid tumours (MRT), which is a very rare but very aggressive tumour that occurs in childhood, with only a few cases diagnosed each year in the UK. Because the cancer is so rare, it is also one of the most underfunded.

Ru's Fund is a named fund for the Grace Kelly Ladybird Trust which aims to-

  • raise awareness of childhood cancer

  • educate about the early signs and symptoms

  • provide grants for research into rare and underfunded cancers

  • support families of children with rhabdoid tumours


On 16th June there will be fundraisers held all over the UK and Northern Ireland to commemorate one year since Ru's diagnosis. We will have tea, cake and information on rare and underfunded paediatric cancers on the day, at our Canterbury studio in Palace Street from 10 AM-5PM. This is a cause that is very close to our hearts. You can read more about Ru by clicking here.
