At Jacob Roberts we want to bring families closer together by changing the way that the kitchen is used by completely transforming the space to allow the whole family to enjoy it. We believe the kitchen is no longer a space to simply cook a meal – it has become a place in which to socialise, to laugh, to cry, to share stories and to drink endless cups of tea (or wine!) while you talk about your day.

What is on your kitchen wish list? Whether it is a larder cupboard, an American fridge-freezer or an island, an experienced kitchen designer will find a way to incorporate the items into your new space, and if they can’t they’ll think outside of the box and find a damn good alternative! Getting the layout of your new kitchen right from the start will save you years of frustration from a lack of worktop space, a lack of storage or badly designed traffic flow. We have been designing and installing kitchens for over 16 years and know what it takes to create a space that works. Our client Discovery Sessions enable us to really understand what you don’t like about your current kitchen, and what it will take to make your new one a place you will want to spend every minute in.

We are so passionate about kitchen design that we have published a bestselling book on this very subject. You can grab a copy of The Lifestyle Kitchen via Amazon., or pop into the shop. We were also thrilled to be invited to speak at Grand Designs Live this year and to act as an advisor on their Ask the Expert panel.

Having the ability to manufacture our own cabinetry in our own intimate factory means that we are able to design kitchens that are truly personalised to you and your space. We are passionate about problem-solving and this allows us to do just that.

We have used Catherine and Robert to design our kitchen and we have been so impressed by their approach and the resulting design. Their approach is totally focussed on designing you a kitchen that suits your lifestyle and your needs…We have ended up with a fabulous kitchen design that absolutely meets our needs and is so much better than anything else than we’d got from anyone, proving that in this case at least, you really do get what you pay for. Our building work doesn’t start until 2020, but we can’t wait to see our kitchen come to life under Robert and Catherine’s careful stewardship. If you are looking for someone to design you your dream kitchen do give Jacob Roberts a go.​ Catherine Woolfe
