About Us

The Stanford Design Family

Stanford Design is an independent kitchen retailer, owned and managed by brothers Ken and Richard Addison. Their Dad owned a kitchen factory, manufacturing has always been in their blood, and they frequently assisted and began to learn the trade from a very young age.  With experience in kitchen design and manufacture, the brothers also spent many years working across Europe as part of the same install team for one of Britishy’s leading kitchen manufacturers, before returning home to the UK with the desire to open their own mid-high end kitchen showroom in Upminster. 

The Team & Our Ethos

Following family tradition, brothers, Ken and Richard now have grown up children of their own, with one of their sons working in the factory, and another working in installation.  Also part of this dedicated team, they have 3 highly experienced kitchen designers, who thrive on producing inspiring kitchen designs to suit each client and their specific needs.   

 All of the Stanford team share the same drive to deliver excellent customer service, with this being central to all that we do.  We recognise the trust that our clients place in us when ordering a kitchen and appreciate that having a new kitchen designed and installed can appear, at times, to be a daunting prospect. We offer a no obligation design service and at every stage we want our customers to feel involved, informed and confident in every decision made.  

What People Say About Us

Kitchen Showroom

At Stanford Design we know there’s nothing like seeing and touching a product for getting a sense of how it’s built and what it can do. As such, we welcome you into our Upminster kitchen showroom where you can fully explore our range of kitchen furniture, worktops, and appliances. Each is arranged in complete and fully dressed kitchen displays, which also include many of our popular kitchen storage solutions such as larder units, carousels, and efficient kitchen bin systems. We have fully-working displays, including appliances from brands such as Neff, Bosch, Miele, Smeg, Bertozzoni, Quooker (for taps) and we are an accredited Studioline partner Siemens. You will also see worktops from popular brands Compac, Caeserstone and Cosentino.

We are immensely proud of our kitchen showroom, and the quality of finish you see here is what all our clients can expect for the quality of installation within their own homes.
