Meet The Team

    • R Jewkes
    • Richard Jewkes – Managing & Design Director

      Channelling his vast interiors experience, Richard Jewkes set up KC Design House after spotting a gap in the market for a high-quality kitchen design and installation service that would enhance people’s lifestyles.

      An absolute labour of love, Richard stops at nothing to transform ordinary spaces into the extraordinary, creating truly unique and luxurious kitchens for clients in and around Yorkshire. It’s this attention to detail, his passion and drive for being the very best, along with his decades of experience which ensures every room designed by the team is nothing short of perfect.
