Our Story

Here at Life, we create kitchens to be lived in. We’ll plan your kitchen around your life, and the way you live it. Whatever you do, in or out of your home, your kitchen’s at the heart of it.

Getting your design right couldn’t be more important – because real life is complex, and everyone is different. That’s why we’re here to listen, to simplify things, to inspire, and to guide you as you realise your vision. So come with all your ideas, or no ideas at all. Drawing on our decades of experience, and your approach to life, let’s see what we can create together. The result will be utterly personal to you.

Relax - Enjoy a Great Experience

Let’s face it, a kitchen is a big purchase. So our job is to make it enjoyable – all the way from choosing and planning your kitchen to its installation. Pop in to our showroom in Waterloo; come and talk to us over a relaxed cup of coffee: we’d love to get to know you, hear your stories, discuss your ideas. Wander around and experience everything in our stunning kitchens: peer into the fridges, unearth hidden storage, browse our vast array of samples. Knock on our worksurfaces, examine our colours, feel our handles. Be inspired by our interpretations of the leading kitchen trends.

A Personal, Practical Approach

When you’re ready for a one-on-one design consultation, just ask for an appointment, and together we’ll take a more detailed look at your own space and what you want to achieve. You’ll find us very easy-going and down to earth; after all, we’re dealing with real life. On the other hand, we’re uncompromising when you need us to be. When it comes to nailing every last technical detail, you can depend on us.

British Designed and Crafted

Life is a British company, and we’re proud to have some of the best kitchen craftsmen in the business, with many decades of experience. We insist on the highest standards of manufacture and service, and we ensure meticulous attention to detail in the design, planning and installation of every single kitchen - carefully considering storage and spatial practicalities too. Life kitchens are beautiful on the inside and out. But more importantly, they are designed to be lived in.

Don't just see it - live it. Visit our amazing showroom to explore your personal kitchen design through a 360° 4D virtual-reality headset.


Our expert design consultants will see you through the entire process, from the first moment we meet. Throughout your journey with us, you’ll benefit from our many lifetimes of skill and experience. We’ll take great care of you at every stage, from design to home survey, through project management, to installation and after-care. You can relax in the knowledge that you're in good hands. As well as designing kitchens for your home, we also work closely with architects, designers and contractors all over the world, for both commercial and personal projects. We conceptualise and supply tailored kitchens for anything from compact city apartments, to high-end housing projects, hotels, restaurants, and VIP residences.
