We love every one of the designer kitchens we’ve produced for our clients here at Kitchen Design Centre – after all, a whole lot of personal passion and creativity goes into the making of each one! This year has obviously presented all sorts of challenges for us – just as it has for everyone else – but we’re proud to say we’ve nevertheless managed to help a wide range of customers realise their own vision for their dream kitchen, including one or two particularly ambitious or creative projects. We thought we’d take a moment to tell you about them, especially if you’re looking for some extra design inspiration on your very own dream kitchen! So, in no particular order, here are some of our favourites from this year…
Our designer Jenna Roberts had a very clear brief for this particular kitchen – customers Katie and Graham wanted to transform their existing space into a much more open-plan area, something that flowed much better with the other rooms in the house. They wanted a space to entertain and have parties in, and according to Jenna, “Katie absolutely wanted something pink!”
Jenna’s finished design delivered all that and more. Katie thinks that the finished kitchen “looks incredible but works so well for us in a practical way”, and particularly highlighted Jenna’s attention to detail, such as the litter tray section for the couple’s cat. Take a look for yourself at this stunning blush kitchen with rose gold accents for a family home!
In one of the most ambitious projects we’ve undertaken in our recent history at Kitchen Design Centre, we worked together with Candelisa Properties to supply and install 51 luxury fitted kitchens at a historic textile mill in Cononley. The team at Candelisa chose us for our ability to offer quality kitchens in a range of styles, as well as the level of our bespoke, personal design service for each of their clients.
Under the leadership of veteran designer Simon Thomas, Kitchen Design Centre’s kitchens exceeded Candelisa’s expectations, and they’ve now asked us to do an additional 41 kitchens for the individual houses they’ve built behind the mill! Take a closer look at how we’re working with an award-winning property developer.
Another ambitious project, we delivered this one for a family in Preston, who were renovating their dream Georgian home. Their brand new extension would house their new designer kitchen, which they wanted to be contemporary in look and feel in contrast to the rest of the building. For a project on this scale, the family needed a kitchen design company who were able to work closely with their architects and fitters, and our designers at Kitchen Design Centre were only too happy to oblige.
Blackburn Showroom Manager Will Hustler managed the kitchen from start to finish, co-ordinating with external contractors and teams while adapting the design to accommodate various last-minute changes and additions. The family were thrilled with the final results – truly a kitchen fit for a grand design!
Our designer Rowan Chick found a highly creative solution for this family kitchen in Oldham, where space was at a premium for the new design. In terms of style, the couple wanted a contemporary style with muted tones, and also a kitchen that would accommodate a separate table, bulkhead and island.
To achieve this, Rowan presented a clever design that involved knocking a wall down to create a much larger space, which could house a huge variety of Neff appliances and functionality. One word in particular was used by both the customers and the designer to describe the finished kitchen – ‘delighted’!

A notable contrast to Rowan’s design comes courtesy of our equally talented designer Maxine, who created a winning design for a beautiful barn kitchen. The customers Joanne and John renovated the front of their property with a glass extension to make the most of their stunning lake views. A brighter palate was chosen to keep the space light and airy, enhancing the natural light flooding in from the windows.
Joanne took plenty of inspiration from the beautiful displays in Kitchen Design Centre’s Barrowford showroom, and Maxine’s finished design incorporated Sparkling White Corian worktops, and a variety of high-tech Neff appliances to complement Joanne’s Aga cooker. “Everyone is absolutely blown way when they see the new kitchen,” says Joanne happily.
