Our Heritage

Founded by Steven Croston in 1994, his family has a rich history of cabinetmaking and building stretching back to the early 1800s when Steven’s great-great-great-grandfather, Richard Croston, was a master cabinetmaker and master clog maker based in Ormskirk, Lancashire.

Each generation since then has continued in the same family tradition in becoming a master craftsman.

Today, Mastercraft Kitchens continues in this proud heritage delivering innovative design, quality manufacturing and all-inclusive installations of beautiful, yet affordable, handcrafted kitchens for the home.

Trinity Court Unit

The Original Workshop Premises – April 1994

From Humble Beginnings – 1994

Our fitted kitchen story began in April 1994 when Steven, a time-served joiner and builder, began supplying made-to-measure kitchen cabinets from a small workshop at Trinity Court, Warrington.

Steven went out most evenings to measure-up clients’ homes to plan and design great-looking kitchens. The business took off, so his half-brother Jonathan Butler soon joined the business to help with the ever-increasing workload.

The business became known for high-quality products and great value for money prices.  A succession of kitchen showrooms were opened in and around the north-west, each one offering a full plan, design, and installation service.

The First Showroom – 1995

Our first showroom was opened in the affluent area of Formby, Merseyside in July 1995 – famous for its red squirrels and the homes of footballers and sports personalities such as Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and John Parrott.

Our showroom was designed to offer visitors an ‘immersive’ experience and featured working displays of the latest innovations of the day from the latest designs to a complete range of connected appliances.

Bigger factory premises

Aintree Factory Workshop Just Opened – Spring 2001

Bigger Workshop Premises – 2001

After opening another two showrooms in Warrington and the Wirral we moved to bigger purpose-built factory premises in Aintree, Liverpool.

Later the same year we invested in more specialist woodworking machinery and increased our factory workforce three-fold.

We also opened a logistics and distribution centre right next to the factory.

Purpose Built Head Office – 2002

In 2002 we moved our business management and customer support operations from Warrington to a new purpose-built head-office next door to our distribution centre in Aintree.

We installed twelve dedicated digital phone lines and the latest high-speed internet to handle the volume of enquiries and kitchen orders we were receiving.

By 2003 we were supplying and installing more than twenty-eight kitchens every single week.

In-House Web Development Team – Present Day

Internet Development & Investment – 2005

In 2005 we invested and expanded our business using internet technology and brought all of our web development work in-house. We soon had enquiries for our kitchens arriving from all over the UK.

We were now becoming a national brand and rather than growing the business nationally with bricks-and-mortar showrooms, decided to invest in internet technology and online marketing instead. It was a bold move, but a clever one.

We were able to go from strength to strength throughout the banking crisis of 2008 as a series of well-known kitchen brands such as Moben, Tesco’s kitchens, Kitchens Direct and many other household kitchen names disappeared.

We Supply and Install Nationally

We now comfortably supply and fit our kitchens nationally, yet we still like to keep everything in-house. Our dedicated team carry out an all-inclusive service and we look after every stage of your project, from start to finish, including the initial home consultation, creating an original design, manufacturing the furniture, sourcing and supplying the appliances and finally fitting your kitchen ourselves.

We can even carry out any associated building and structural work required.

Today almost all of our new business comes via word-of-mouth and online enquiries and we are the No.1 online supplier for quality bespoke fully-fitted kitchens in the UK.

testimonails background image "Mastercraft fitted the bill perfectly" "We wanted a company that could come in and do everything which meant knocking a wall through, bricking up a doorway and other alterations. Mastercraft fitted the bill perfectly as other companies only wanted to price for the kitchen units, not the building work." Mr & Mrs Wilikinson, Northampton testimonails background image "The best fitted kitchen experience we have ever had " "We are very impressed with the service we received from Mastercraft Kitchens. Everyone has been very pleasant to deal with and nothing has been too much trouble. We can honestly say this is the best fitted kitchen experience we have ever had and would highly recommend anyone in the process of shopping for a new kitchen to try Mastercraft Kitchens, you won't be disappointed" Stephen Cooper, Solihull testimonails background image "We're very, very happy with everything" "Well, I can say again, we're not disappointed as yet another Mastercraft Kitchen has been successfully completed to a very high standard. The speed of service, the ease that everything went together and the quality of the finish is superb. Thanks again to everyone at Mastercraft, from the guys in the factory to the aftersales staff, Lee's fitting team and to Steve our long suffering kitchen designer and project manager. A great job by all, we're very, very happy with everything." Adam Owens, Property Developer testimonails background image "Amazing service. Would definitely recommend" "The whole service was wonderful from start to finish. The workmen were a friendly lot and they all did a fantastic job. Although my kitchen is only small, the design is very practical and the finish and quality of the units are noticeably better than a lot of the showrooms I looked around.  Best of all was that on the last day the guys cleaned and polished everything up for me. Amazing service. Would definitely recommend." Mrs C Quinn, Manchester testimonails background image "I'm a very happy customer" "The workmanship, service and quality of the products supplied have all been and still are excellent.

We are particularly impressed by the friendly, cheery attitude everyone has in their work and would recommend anyone to use Mastercraft Kitchens for their kitchen project. I'm a very happy customer."
John Vine, Wakefield
testimonails background image "Above and beyond what we expected to get" "Having traipsed around expensive kitchen showrooms as well as the usual B&Q and Wickes, and being disappointed at the prices being quoted we decided we would try something a little more up to date and used the internet to shop around for our new kitchen. We are so glad we did...the level of service we received was far above and beyond what we expected to get for the price." Mrs Pam Jones, Sheffield testimonails background image "A great service, great price and brilliant quality" "All in all a great service, great price and brilliant quality.  You only do a quality kitchen once every blue moon so I would seriously recommend you go with Mastercraft Kitchens if you are about to make that all important decision." Mrs Elaine Sumner, Wirral testimonails background image "Exceeded our expectations" "We love our new Mastercraft kitchen. Everyone who has visited has been wowed by the style, colours and tones.

Mr Graham Hall, Worksop testimonails background image "Our only regret was not calling them in earlier" "Full marks to Mastercraft Kitchens for all their help in our recent project.  Our only regret was not calling them in earlier. The out of business hours support and quick replies when we had any questions was very reassuring.
The kitchen is now the best room in our house and all our friends and family love it.  We would highly recommend anyone thinking of getting a new kitchen to get a quote from Mastercraft Kitchens."
Mrs Helen Shaw, Lancaster

Mr Alan Davies, Llandudno testimonails background image "Nothing was too much trouble" "Cannot speak highly enough about this company and everyone involved in bringing our kitchen to life. Steve did the most amazing design and he simply couldn’t have been more helpful, friendly and professional.
Lee who fit the kitchen was amazing, hard working and did a superb job, nothing was too much trouble.
Everyone else, electrician, plasterers and floor fitter did such a good job"
