Describe your business:

We are a husband and wife team of designers specialising in innovative kitchens and living spaces. From our diverse backgrounds we bring our unique skill sets to bear on our designs and delivery; Jeremys in construction, which is invaluable in our project management, and as an accomplished cook, Angela has practicality at the heart of her designs. Combined and working together, our clients get a unique mix of skills that makes sure our kitchens work as good as they look.

Who are your customers?

Our customers range from architects, builders to small developers but the majority are private clients.

What inspires you?

In this information filled world we live in, inspiration is all around us, but our greatest inspiration comes from working with our clients. The relationship between designer and client in close collaboration to create a dream kitchen always brings out the best in us. Some spaces are more challenging than others but the overall aim is the same, to create a room that our clients will love for years to come.

What sets you apart from your competitors?

9 out of 10 kitchens require building work of some description, ranging from structural alterations, to new floors or simply new lighting. Of course this will involve a whole raft of trades people which takes time and expertise to co- ordinate.

We project manage each of our kitchens every step of the way and we only work with a dedicated team of first class craftspeople. So you can be sure of top quality workmanship, down to the last detail, delivered when promised, and to budget.

What has been your greatest business challenge?

Working and living together, 24-7 can bring its own unique challenges. However, we are completely in tune with the commitment it takes to bring together all of the aspects of design and practical application necessary, to deliver a truly bespoke service to our clients. In our case, my husband/ wife really does understand me!

What has been your greatest business success?

The success of our new showroom, where all of the displays are fully functioning, allowing our clients the opportunity of experiencing what it is like to cook in one of our kitchens. Our free monthly professional cookery demonstrations are always well attended. Giving our clients first hand practical knowledge of just how easy it is to get the best out of the very latest innovations in kitchen appliances.

What keeps you motivated?

Seeing our clients fall in love with their kitchen. Hearing that it has changed the way they live their lives. We even get the odd invitation to join them for supper, who wouldnt be motivated by that?

What are your plans for the next 12 months?

Obviously, we would like to build on the success that our showroom has given us. We also want to increase peoples awareness of how important it is to consider the design of their kitchen at the earliest stage. It's never too early to discuss your vision with us, even if your plans are still months away, earlier is better, especially if the project involves building work, as often we can help in ways you wouldn't have imagined.
