Richard Johns Kitchen Designer Director

A professional interior designer with an impressive resume of designs and installations under his belt, Richard has extensive knowledge of all the latest design trends and is passionate about pushing boundaries, bringing a fresh approach on kitchen design to Somerset. He does like to think outside of the box, which enables him to create kitchens that are not your standard run-of-the-mill room full of units, by way of focusing his attention to clever storage solutions and real functionality coupled with exciting aesthetic design ideas. If you are looking for a kitchen with design flair that you’ll not achieve by going to the sheds, then Richard is your ideal designer.


Project manager and head of installations, John Mills.

A seasoned professional kitchen installer and master carpenter craftsman since 1989 following an initial intensive 5 year carpentry apprenticeship, John is our head installer and project manager. Having been in the building industry his entire working life, John offers our clients an all inclusive service, where nothing is off the table. From simple kitchen installations, right through to knocking through walls and even building extensions to put the new kitchen into, John and his team of highly skilled professionals offer a one stop shop for our clients, covering everything from building work, plumbing, heating, electrical, plastering, flooring, decorating and all other works required to fulfil our projects brief in full.

Why it works.

Richard and John have been working together for many many years, and understand each others strengths and abilities perfectly, creating the ideal team to take your new fitted kitchen, bedroom, home office or bathroom from conception to completion in a highly effective manner. Each knows what the other is all about, and both strive for the exact same level of perfection and attention to detail. John has an amazing ability to take Richards often specialised designs, and turn them into a reality with an advanced level of skill and professionalism that is usually hard to find in the industry.

Our manufacturing partner.

AshleyAnn manufacturing

We are proudly part of the AshleyAnn family. This partnership means that while we are still very much an independent local business in Taunton and focussed on the needs of customers throughout Taunton and the surrounding Somerset area, we are fully supported by AshleyAnn. In all respects, this relationship has considerable benefits to our clients. All of our fitted Kitchen, bedroom, home office and bathroom furniture comes from our manufacturing partner, AshleyAnn, who are based in the Highlands of Scotland, meaning all of our furniture is made here in the UK.

Being one of the most forward thinking and extensive manufacturing facilities in the UK, AshleyAnn offer us the ability to create designs without limitation, including bespoke styles and finishes, custom paint jobs, special sizes and superior joinery and craftsmanship. If we can design it, they can produce it, making AshleyAnn our ideal manufacturing partner.
