Life Kitchens
Tailored state-of-the-art kitchens built to last a lifetime

A fifth-generation family kitchen company with its roots tracing back over 110 years, Life Kitchens believes that its British heritage plays a large part in inspiring customer trust. Proud of its tailored, hand-finished cabinetry, state-of-the-art paint finishing and work surface manufacture in its own UK factory, Life Kitchens is living proof that focusing on what you do best will bring success, regardless of the prevailing conditions.


During the challenging months of 2020 and several lockdowns, Life moved to online consultations. As so many customers found this convenient in their initial kitchen planning stages, it’s an option that is still offered today. One advantage of a Life kitchen is that every aspect is manufactured and managed in house from bespoke cabinetry to work surface fabrication, handles, lighting and internal storage, as well as appliances, sinks, taps and installation. This means the team can quickly react to the changeable nature of project timelines.

Life’s collections put people at the heart of the design, taking into account the way we live now with the kitchen as the hub of the house

Renowned for crafting trend-leading kitchen collections of the finest quality, Life takes customers on an immersive and personal journey toward their new kitchen. Product diversity and a passion for working closely with each individual to tailor every part of the kitchen to their lives is what truly sets Life apart. Whether you’re looking for a sleek and handle-less look or a classic in frame timber design, there is something for everyone. No set rules or ranges means that customers are always encouraged to create a look that reflects their personality and lifestyle. Plus, through Life’s virtual reality theatre and 4D headset customers can literally take a step into their new kitchen before buying. A unique innovation for the company, it really brings the whole experience to life.


The expert team scours the globe for the latest trends, bringing kitchen products to the market that are accessible, relevant and exciting in the interiors industry. ‘We’re constantly looking to expand our product and material offering, so that we can always offer customers something unique and ahead of the curve,’ says owner and director Oli Stephenson. ‘We take inspiration from interior trends, and collaborations with design professionals, as well as customer feedback and we’re most at home bringing all of those elements together in a tailored design to meet the customer’s vision.’


Life’s collections put people at the heart of the design, taking into account the way we live now with the kitchen as the hub of the house. The company has recently launched seven new colours for 2021, which are available across every product range. ‘These build upon our popular blue and green hues, and also add new depth and warmth with two exciting new red shades,’ comments Head of Design Graeme Smith. ‘There’s also a major new collection launch coming shortly that will offer our customers unprecedented choice to create a really signature look for any setting.’


Kitchens start at £30,000, but with the wide choice of creative finishes, colours and fittings on offer, as well as an ultra-personalised design and planning service, a Life kitchen is to be seen as an investment – materially adding to a property’s value, as well as its desirability for living.


With the most established supply relationships in the industry, comprehensive manufacturing capabilities in place and a trio of showrooms spread across the country (in London, County Durham and Slough), Life can support and inspire all of its existing and future customers in creating the kitchen of their dreams.
