  • I would highly recommend Markus Schmid Kitchens to anyone who is looking to have a professionally designed and built kitchen. My new kitchen looks very modern and well designed and the high quality and finish on the cupboards and countertop is immediately apparent.

Lucy, Battersea

  • If we were going to have something bespoke, then we wanted it to look different. Our designer was a perfectionist, and our kitchen is full of amazing details that make all the difference. Everything is beautifully designed and well made.

Ideal Home Magazine Feature

An internet search led the couple to a small family company, Markus Schmid Kitchens. “When we met the designer at his house, Will and I saw his kitchen and changed our minds about what we wanted”, says Lucy. “We scrapped the idea of a wooden worktop in favour of a white stone one, and added grey base units to pick out the colours of the floor tiles.” Within weeks of the building work finishing the couple’s kitchen was fitted. ”If we were going to have something bespoke, then we wanted it to look different,” says Lucy. “Our designer was a perfectionist, and our kitchen is full of amazing details that make all the difference. Everything is beautifully designed and well made.”
