Design Research Shopfitting Ltd are a bespoke joinery manufacturer based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire. We provide our services also in London. Established in 1979, we are a well-known and reputable joinery company, capable of taking on both small local projects for homeowners to larger national projects for major building contractors.

We offer a full range of joinery services, including the manufacture of stairs, windows, doors, counters, furniture and other fully bespoke work. Our quality craftsmanship has been proven throughout our past projects, and we have earned an excellent reputation for our ability to compete elaborate and complex work to the highest standard.
We endeavour to ensure complete satisfaction for our customers, tailoring our services to meet the individual requirements of each project. We provide a full site measuring and survey service, and will then supply a set of drawings or prototypes if required for your approval, before we start any work on the products.
