I have been in the kitchens industry for my entire working life. I live, love and breathe it, and I really enjoy designing kitchens and furniture to this day.
Following a two-year apprenticeship in skilled cabinet-making and with some very big ideas, I started designing and making kitchens in 1991, when I was just 18 years old. Following a feature in the local Alton Herald Newspaper we began receiving commissions for bespoke furniture and kitchens, which started to build the business. With my former business partner, I gradually made the transition to designing bespoke handcrafted kitchens from a small farm workshop in Alton until we soon moved to larger premises in Winchester.
Today, I remain the proud owner of Searle & Taylor, which is now the longest-established kitchen design studio in Winchester. Over this time, we have designed and made thousands of kitchens for clients in Hampshire and beyond and we have always been renowned for providing outstanding and considerate customer service
I am supported by a fantastic team of talented designers and craftspeople, some of whom have worked closely with me for over 20 years. My foundation in bespoke cabinet-making ensures that we all have a fundamental understanding of every aspect of kitchen design and planning; from expertly hand-crafted curved cabinet displays, to walk-in larders and foldaway pocket doors. All elements intrinsically come together and work beautifully with one another.
We bring your ideas to life with our thoughtful and intelligent designs and working with you, we create both practical yet elegant solutions to suit your needs and desires. Offering precise installation advice our kitchens and furniture pieces are built to withstand the test of time.
