About Us

Our Story

  We began our journey as a team of kitchen installation specialists, transforming homes for families across Kent and beyond. We’re hands-on every step of the way, and seeing the process from drawings to completion is truly rewarding. It’s more than just cabinets and worktops, we know that kitchens are the heart of the home, where families cook, laugh, and make memories. That’s why every project we do matters – we’re not just installing kitchens, we’re helping build the soul of a home.

   Now, as a thriving kitchen design company, our growth hasn’t changed our core values. We’re still committed to staying close to our customers, ensuring every project receives our utmost care.

   About me

   I always enjoyed woodworking. As a child, I used to spend time in my dad’s workshop, helping my dad with various joinery tasks, and first learning about designing and building pieces of furniture. After leaving school I studied languages at the university, however, instead of going into education or becoming a translator, I chose the path where my heart was – crafting and fitting furniture.

What I love about my job

   Since founding Kraus Kitchens my role includes many aspects of managing the company, making sure everything runs smoothly, but I still enjoy spending time on site during installation and seeing the whole transformation take place. My favourite part of the job are the final stages of kitchen fitting, and handing it over to our clients..

My dream kitchen
   I like both contemporary and traditional kitchen designs, but if I had to choose one, it would be an in-frame kitchen with solid hardwood cabinet doors, dovetail oak drawers and natural granite surfaces. I love the natural beauty of solid wood doors, the 5 piece shaker are durable and work well in most properties. My dream kitchen would have an island with a breakfast bar which is great for having breakfast or entertaining friends. And as a cherry on the cake, I would have an illuminated coffee/drinks cabinet with an antique mirror splashback.

About me

  Ever since I was young, I’ve had a thirst for knowledge and a passion for reading. This love for learning led me to become a teacher and earn a Master’s in Literature. However, life took unexpected turns, bringing me to the United Kingdom, where I embarked on a journey of new languages, cultures, and motherhood.

   As a co-founder of Kraus Kitchens, I found my true calling. Designing kitchens is a constant learning journey for me. I enjoy exploring new products, finishes, and their combinations. I travel to exhibitions in the UK, Germany, and Italy to bring fresh ideas to life. Each project is personal to me; it’s not just about drawings but about fulfilling someone’s dream. My goal is to make kitchens beautiful and practical, where families can enjoy time together. Witnessing these designs come to life brings immense joy and fulfilment.
