The Better Bedrooms' Story

At Better Bedrooms, our story is woven into the fabric of a larger narrative – that of the Better brand's dedication to transforming homes across the UK.

While Better Kitchens has been the cornerstone, our venture into bedroom furniture is a natural extension of this commitment. We bring the same ethos of quality, innovation, and customer-first approach to the world of bedroom furnishings.

Building on a Foundation of Trust and Excellence

Our roots are deeply entwined with the story of Better Kitchens, which began in 2006. It was in a modest cowshed in Somerset where Ardene Stoneman and his brother Julian embarked on a mission to redefine the kitchen industry.

Their focus on customer needs and quality products laid the groundwork for what would become a trusted name in home improvement. This foundation of trust and excellence is the bedrock upon which Better Bedrooms is built.


The Cowshed  

With 15 years of experience in bespoke joinery and luxury kitchen installations, Ardene Stoneman, alongside his brother Julian, founded Better Kitchens.

Their vision was to leverage their expertise to set up an online platform that would bring luxury kitchens to the masses.


Going Digital  

In 2007, we launched our first website, marking our entry into the online kitchen retail space.


Partnering with CDA  

We became an approved reseller for CDA appliances in 2008, expanding our product offering from our first showroom to include kitchen appliances, sinks and taps.


Weathering the Recession  

The 2008 recession was a challenging period, especially for a new company, but our online services were perfectly positioned to offer cost-effective solutions, helping us weather the downturn.


Expanding Horizons  

In 2009, work started on a new building another of the farm buildings, providing us with more room for a larger showroom and warehouse.


Catastrophe Strikes!  

November 2011 was a testing time as our warehouse flooded due to excessive rain, damaging stock and machinery. Thanks to understanding customers, we persevered and decided to relocate to a larger unit on Weston Industrial Estate in 2012.


Elevating Partnerships 

We became a CDA Select Partner in 2014, strengthening our relationship with the UK's best kitchen appliances manufacturer.


Showcasing Our Range

Our first 100-page colour kitchen brochure was printed in 2015, offering customers a comprehensive look at our products.


A Decade of Excellence

Celebrating our 10-year anniversary was a momentous occasion, marked by a grand event attended by the local Mayor. This milestone not only commemorated our achievements but also reinforced our commitment to serving our community and customers. The event served as a testament to our enduring presence in the industry and set the stage for the exciting journey ahead.


Innovating Online

Our new website was launched at the Home Building & Renovating Show with the aim of creating the best online kitchen buying system, which we named "Smart Features."


Going Green:
Zero To Landfill

In a significant step towards sustainability, we transitioned our waste process to Zero To Landfill in 2018. This eco-friendly initiative underscored our commitment to environmental responsibility.


New Fleet of Delivery Vehicles

In 2019, we took customer service to the next level by introducing a new fleet of customer-friendly Low Loader Luton vans. This move aimed to enhance the reliability and efficiency of our deliveries.


A New Home

We relocated to a modern, purpose-built premises featuring a two-storey showroom with 28 displays and a 15,000-square-foot warehouse. 


Going Green

We made the decision to stop printing brochures to reduce our carbon footprint and focus on building the website online brochure.


A Family Affair

Our brother Lee Stoneman joined the company to oversee our most significant website upgrade to date, leveraging his background in IT project management.


Empowering Customers

We launched our 3D online kitchen planner, allowing customers to visualise their dream kitchens in their own homes.

2023 and Beyond

The Future

We have ambitious plans for the future, including the introduction of dedicated websites for Bedrooms, Bathrooms, and Worktops.
