Joseph Whitaker - Aesthetic Interiors


I cannot praise Joe´s work highly enough. He designed and built for me  two large bookcases and a long CD/DVD cabinet, as well as installing two wardrobes and numerous smaller items over a five month period. His work is meticulous and careful. He pre-empts problems by thinking through in advance all the possible pitfalls and he is always practical and cost-efficient in offering solutions to difficulties.

The quality of his work is exemplary. I was more than 100 percent satisfied with everything that he did and I was delighted with the excellent appearance of all the items he built.

He is easy to work with, totally reliable, doesn’t complain if something needs to change and is a really nice guy to have working in the house.

I would not hesitate to call on his service whenever I need a joiner in the future. I have already recommended him to friends and I would be delighted to provide further references.

We approached Joe to help out with a TV cabinet and a Utility cupboard in our kitchen. Both were challenging jobs. In fact other joiners had shied away from the work. Joe took time working with us to explore options and discuss the right design for us. His experience helped a lot at this stage as he was able to bring loads of new ideas into the equation. Both designs were pretty complicated in the end. Joe then took time to put together detailed designs and cutting lists. The majority of work was done offsite minimizing the impact to us at home. All that was needed onsite was assembly and detailed fitting. Joe was patient and meticulous and the end result shows this. Both cabinets are finished to a very high standard and are practical and durable. We would strongly recommend Joe to anyone looking for high quality fitted cabinets.

We have a high regard for Joe´s work as he has done considerable amount of bespoke fine cabinet making and carpentry in our home on successive occasions. He is honest, trustworthy and meticulous.

We have recommended Joe to neighbours and friends for whom he has worked and they have all praised his work.

We have no hesitation in recommending Joe given his quality workmanship.

Joe Whitaker has carried out three pieces of work during the past nine months at our home in Camden Town. These were:
- Making and installing period style cupboards with adjustable book shelves above for two chimney alcoves.
- Making and installing cupboards and shelving for a home office, and fitting preparing work-top.
- Strengthening and weather-proofing wooden front door

Joe was recommended by friends and has proved a good workman and one who is reliable, accommodating, and entirely trustworthy. He discussed in detail what was required and made intelligent suggestions for how this could be achieved or might be improved. he was meticulous in taking measurements prior to ordering materials and provided receipts for everything he purchased for the jobs. The completed work was always extremely well constructed and the quality of finish very high so that it could be painted with minimum preparation.

Joe is a quiet and very tidy worker, cleaning up thoroughly as he goes along. He also removed rubbish and scrap at the end of the job. I was able to carry on with my work while he was there but i was equally happy to leave him to work alone and to give him a set of house keys.

We are extremely pleased with all the work Joe has done for us and would highly recommend him. I would be happy to support this by telephone call.

Joe has done four carpentry jobs for me over the last couple of years. The work included the repair of windows and doors suffering from serious wood rot, as well as the reconfiguration of expensive built-in kitchen cabinets to seamlessly accommodate a new refrigerator with different dimensions. Joe has also designed and built a very clever screen panel for French doors.

All of Joe´s work is meticulous, and he is not satisfied until every detail is right. I can recommend his work without hesitation, and plan to use his services again in the future.
