When it comes to making a really important purchase, such as a kitchen, then we should all agree that there’s nothing more exciting, engaging and reassuring than seeing and feeling the real thing. Whilst many of us may spend more time on the digital high street rather than the physical one, for those big home-infrastructural, lifestyle-changing, long-lasting buys, we cannot rely purely on clicks, we still need bricks (and mortar) to help us decide on those all-important styles, shapes, sizes, materials and finishes.
But above all, true value is always found in the most personal, tailored experiences.
Here at Life Kitchens, we’re known for crafting a rather unique, interactive journey when it comes to helping you design your dream kitchen – and our luxury, destination showroom is where it all begins.
At the heart of Life’s ethos is people, and crafting personal kitchens around the real lives they live. Every lifestyle is wonderfully different, which is why each Life kitchen is entirely unique and tailored to you from start to finish. You’ll never find two the same.
Designed to embrace this, Life’s flagship kitchen showroom is all about exploration and discovering how you want to live in the most important room in the home. It’s an immersive experience from the minute you set foot in the large brick-domed space nestled underneath Waterloo’s historic railway arches.
There’s something to inspire everyone. From sleek, modern, handleless designs, to others which exude classical English styling, or eclectic mixes of both and everything in between. You’ll find an abundance of trend leading colours, textures, detailing, state of the art appliances, smart storage, and luxuriant granites, quartzes and timbers, all which combine to produce a truly inspirational space.
But while Life’s designs deliver luxury wow factor, the spaces are realistic to a wide range of Uk homes, allowing you to really envisage each look in your own setting.
And there are never any set rules or ranges to adhere to. Mix and match, create your own personal style. A life kitchen is always what you make it.
With the digital world creating a huge cultural shift in the way we shop, the Life Kitchens showroom has been designed to provide a ‘phygital’ environment - blending physical reality with digital virtual reality, for the ultimate immersive experience and the opportunity to try your new kitchen before you buy.
As part of your complimentary design consultation, we invite you to step into our VR theatre – and through the use of a 4D headset you can literally step into your new kitchen designs and experience living your new kitchen lifestyle in your own home.
You can walk around, get a feel for the space and the layout, open cupboards, reach for the shelves, turn the taps on, and see your chosen colours and materials come to life. And if you’re remodelling an entirely new kitchen space – whether that’s knocking through, or building out – we can visualise that for you too!
It puts you firmly in control and helps ease your decisions, making your kitchen buying process not only reassuring, but also a truly exciting, interactive adventure.
Our award winning showroom not only makes you think you could walk straight into each kitchen and start living – with groceries packed neatly in cupboards, the smartest storage keeping pots and pans in check, and the smell of freshly made coffee - but it truly stops you in your tracks, and makes you think ‘wow’.
Whether it’s our stunning metro-tiled pink gin room, our clever hidden kitchen, or the fine joinery revealed when you open our beautiful pantries, the Life showroom encourages you to combine style, functionality, and most importantly your own personality into how you dream of living Life in your kitchen.
It’s also home to Life’s highly experienced kitchen designers, who are there to help guide your journey from start to finish. You’ll find us down to earth but utterly uncompromising when it comes to nailing every last technical detail. You are always welcome to pop in to browse at any time. And when you feel ready, your personal Life designer will arrange a one-to-one consultation with you to take a look at your space in greater detail.
It's a warm, inviting atmosphere. Over a relaxed cup of coffee, we’ll discuss your ideas and get to know how you live your life, providing plenty of expert inspiration along the way. We’ll explore colours, products, materials, layouts, and together we’ll craft a personal kitchen that not only suits but enhances your life, because it’s designed for YOU, and only you.
As a fifth generation, British family business, we have kitchens in our blood – so you can rest assured we know a thing or two about crafting beautiful furniture. With our roots tracing back over 110 years, we insist on the highest standards of manufacture and service, and meticulous attention to detail in the design, planning and installation of every single kitchen. Life kitchens are beautiful on the inside and out. But more importantly, they are built for life.
At Life, we know that our showroom plays a massive part to your whole kitchen buying experience. It’s not simply a place to shop, it’s the start of an experiential and exploratory journey which puts you totally at ease as you make one of the most important lifestyle purchases you’ll ever make.
So, whether you’re full of ideas, or are keen to be inspired, pay us a visit and tell us – how do you WANT live yours?
