After searching the Internet for alcove storage ideas, one image really stuck with me, and luckily the company ended up being Sheffield based. Contact with Freebird has been excellent and Alastair is an absolute professional, from the initial plans through to the finished product. They are not the cheapest option around, but, oh my goodness, you definitely get what you pay for- the quality is stunning. We are absolutely over the moon with our alcove storage and are currently looking for potential other projects that we can get them to do. Would 100% recommend if you are looking for a high quality, professional finish.Read More

I could not be more impressed with Alistair and his team. Right from the start the communication was excellent and Alistair listened carefully to our vision for the space. The furniture is beautiful, we actually feel it makes our room seem bigger! It was colour matched perfectly to our decor and the quality is excellent - thank you!Read More

We contacted Freebird to help design and install Alcove cabinets and floating shelves based on a vision we've had for a couple of years. Starting with a blank wall, Alastair provided different options for us to choose and although we used a different company to build the chimney breast, the process was made so much easier due to the detailed design provided by Freebird. We had to wait a little while for our installation for various reasons, but were really happy with the final outcome. The colour and finish was just what we imagined and the lighting with hidden cables look fantastic providing a great effect and really modern and neat overall. Even when requesting small adjustments, Alastair was happy to revisit and ensure all the furniture was just as expected and the room was back as it was and hoovered. He was courteous, professional with great attention to detail and he ensured every query was answered. A really great company to work with and highly recommended.Read More

Thank you for an excellent job supplying three bespoke wardrobes for our new house in Lincolnshire. From the measuring, to the design and construction the job has been excellent. Your ideas, attention to detail and care in construction have been great. You arrived on time, worked hard and tidied up well on completion. We are very pleased. Thanks to you and your team.Read More

Struggling to find a good solution for built in wardrobes in our newly converted loft when our builder suggested that we talk to Alastair at Freebird Interiors - so glad that we did! He came up with an excellent solution that made good use of available space. The company is well-organised and we were kept up-to-date at all stages of the work. Alastair was very courteous and tidy in his work and we now have some lovely wardrobes giving us useful storage that blends in very nicely with the rest of the room. I would have no hesitation in recommending Freebird Interiors.Read More

Alastair was wonderful to work with from start to finish. Extremely professional to deal with. Understood our requirements fully and clearly explained what could/couldn’t be done. He had to accommodate for very wonky walls for our fitted wardrobes and still did a perfect job. Will definitely be using again for our next beautiful storage needs! I wish more companies were as reliable and pleasant to deal with. Many thanks!Read More

A very professional and helpful approach at every stage, from planning through to completion. Due to the pandemic some materials could not be delivered on time but we were kept informed at all times. The final result is just what we wanted - more storage space and a small office, all finished to a very high standard. The work was completed with care for the surrounding areas and there was no mess left when the job was finished.Read More

Having seen some of the work done on social media for other clients I knew immediately that I wanted to contact them for a quote for our home study/office. I had some sketches of what we needed in the space and Alastair quickly drew up some CAD designs. We only needed a few tweaks and then we were ready to start the project. It was great timing as both my partner and I work from home and we needed to maximise the space for both our needs. Alastair came up with some ideas for lighting and radiator panels which are both very stylish. The white gloss cabinetry and the oak work well in the small space to bounce light around. The desk design works well as we are able to move freely without the obstruction of table legs. Some of the things we love about the design are that it’s beautifully crafted and a joy to be at ‘work’. We have ended up working longer hours as it has become a tranquil place to sit and work. The open shelves with the charging socket is a great place to place all our electronic devices that need charging. The radiator shelf also acts as a stand up desk. The oak shelving is a perfect size to store our laptops at the end of the day keeping our desk clear and clutter free. Alastair and Brady were both very considerate working within our home and left the place spotless. We will be working on the next project with them in future, as we were really pleased with the quality of the work. From intial contact to the final sign off, it was all handled efficiently, the team are well organised and communicate in a timely manner. Thoroughly recommend this company as they really do take care in crafting a bespoke solution to your needs.Read More

Very friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient service. Really nice ideas and superb execution. Would happily re-use and recommend. A pleasure to deal with.Read More

I've had four installations from Freebird over a couple of years. I'm very pleased with the design; the whole experience of dealing with the company went smoothly and was a pleasure. The installation was well planned and through. No snagsRead More

Birds

The Bird

On completion of their project, every customer receives a free bird ornament.  These are hand-made from offcuts.  Most customers are happy to keep their bird as an ornament on a shelf.  This creates a ready point of reference with a unique job number written under the base: so if we are ever contacted in future, for example to match a handle style, door style or paint mix, we can easily find the details in our records.

Camilla

A final touch

We also provide an information card summarising key details of the project for your future reference.  Attached to this is a card confirming the lifetime guarantee provided by our supplier Blum for the hardware used (the highest quality soft close hinges and drawer runners).
