About Us – Fitted Bedrooms, Wardrobes & Home Offices
GPM Designs Ltd, based in Ash, Kent is a family business established in 1980. We have an excellent reputation with our customers for building quality fitted and freestanding made to measure furniture. That is why approximately 70% of our work comes through customer recommendation and a good proportion also comes through repeat business when previous customers move home or want a second or third room fitted out in their home. View our customer testimonials for further information.
How we started
In the late 1970’s George fitted his first wardrobe in his house in Earlshall Road, Eltham. Not long after that, his neighbour saw it and asked if he would build one in their home. It wasn’t long before 6 people he didn’t know in his road saw his work and came knocking on his door asking him if he would fit furniture for them. Enquiries continued to come in and George juggled this side-line alongside his full time job in the newspaper industry until in 1980, he established GPM Designs Ltd. Soon after, he gave up his full time job to run the new business.
Today George is semi retired, but Adam, his son, still continues the family tradition of individually made to measure bedroom furniture, tailored to the customer’s specific requirements. All furniture is truly made to measure, not adapted to fit.

Get Your In Showroom Quote
If you would like to bring along a sketch of your room showing sizes and an idea of what made to measure furniture you require, then we can generally give you an idea of cost in the showroom before visiting your home. Please call to make an appointment before you come as either George or Adam would need to be in the office to provide this service for you. At your request, we can subsequently carry out a home survey to confirm details and then provide high quality CAD design drawings and a written quotation.
GPM Designs Workshop
The workshop is situated directly behind the showroom within our industrial unit in Ash. It covers an area of approximately 1500 square feet and all of our made to measure bedroom furniture is cut and assembled on the premises. We are well equipped with a good range of modern machinery which enables our staff to manufacture made to measure high quality units to any specification.
