About the Project 

The award-winning project is a modern and durable family kitchen for a family home in Windsor. The brief, to create a harmonious space full of warmth for the family to spend time together and relax after a busy day at work or school. More than just a direct replacement of the clients existing kitchen, the design needed to be durable, modern and flexible to create a beautiful and functional kitchen diner that also facilitates home working. The design complements the modernist, classic feel from the Crittall windows and characterful Victorian architecture.

Very professional company. A pleasure to work with. The kitchen designed and workmanship was stunning. They really listened to our wants and lifestyle needs. Would wholeheartedly recommend.
Mr. Magal
It really is an excellent service. No detail is left unchecked. Everything from the beginning has been amazing. The initial design was well thought out, imaginative & exciting. All our questions no matter how silly were answered. Measurements on site were checked very carefully which meant when issues were found they could be resolved before the kitchen was ordered. It arrived on time & was fitted with the same care & attention we'd come to expect. The kitchen itself - WOW!
Mrs. Scott
After visiting a number of kitchen specialist, KCA were the only ones who listened and were able to translate my ideas into reality. The final product was perfect and the service and after care provided was exceptional.

Having previously worked in kitchens, I know how painful having your kitchen fitted can be - I think our experience was as painless as it could have been.

From concept design to finished kitchen the process was seamless. KCA not only produced a great design but their interface with the architect and builders made the project a great success.

The customer service is second to none. The kitchen design and choice is superb.

KCA were the 3rd kitchen design company we approached, they were the only ones to listen to us and our design requests and ideas. The 3D view of how the kitchen would look was perfect.

The kitchen fitter is very efficient & an excellent communicator, his work is to a very high standard & he is very tidy!
Mr. & Mrs. Cass
Very friendly, informative and helpful service. I would definitely use KCA again. Thank you all.

The design of the kitchen differed hugely from any of the others we received. This really was a "design". Clever and inspiring, not just someone drawing what we'd said. The fitting was efficient with the same regard to detail.
Mr. & Mrs. Scott
Great service from start to finish.
Always a pleasure to deal with, fantastic designs and great service all round.

KCA have installed a new hob and oven, a Quooker tap and new work surfaces. I am overjoyed with the results.
