In November, we will be celebrating 40 years since Ashford Kitchens & Interiors first started helping people transform their homes.

We have loved working on bespoke installations of all shapes and sizes over the years, and seeing the difference our work has made to our customer’s lives. We are incredibly proud to still be one of the go-to companies in the local area for kitchens, bedrooms and home offices, and we are excited to see what the next 40 years have in store for us.

A Look Back Over the Years

Back in 1984, Richard Flower founded Ashford Kitchens & Interiors with his wife Tracey, opening their very first showroom in Ashford, and have been a part of the Kitchen Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA) ever since.

After working for a large furniture store in the 80s and being put in charge of a new kitchen department, Richard knew he wanted to be a part of the growing trend of kitchen specialists. As the business went from strength to strength, Tracey helped with the day-to-day running of installations and kept a close eye on the finances. It’s thanks to her that Ashford Kitchens & Interiors remains financially sound to this day.

Although there have been some hurdles along the way, we have made it through the 1990 recession, the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and the 2019 COVID pandemic, and come out the other side stronger. Now in 2024, we are still a family-owned and family-run business, led by Stephen and Grace Flower. We have another showroom in Farnham Common, which is also celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and we continue to bring our customers’ visions to life.

What the Future Has in Store

We are very proud of our history and to be a long-established company, but we are always looking ahead to the future. Our team is passionate about improving our customers’ homes and we stay up-to-date with all of the latest trends in interior design. There’s a reason why we have become a renowned name for quality and first-class service in the South of England, and we are committed to exceeding expectations with every project we undertake.

As we have grown as a business, we have created an exceptional team that provides knowledgeable, impartial and constructive advice to our customers. From the first time you contact us about your home improvements to the final installation of your new kitchen, bedroom or home office, our team will be there to guide you through the process. Our welcoming approach sets us apart, and it’s one thing that will never change.

Now, looking ahead to what the future holds, we have big plans for growing the business to enable us to support more homeowners with their renovation projects. We will continue to update and refresh our showrooms to provide customers with new inspiration, and offer new solutions by keeping up with the latest advancements in technology. By working closely with our supplier, who we have partnered with for many years now, we will ensure our products continue to meet the highest standards and stand the test of time.

Striving for Excellence With Our Growing Team

Although a lot has changed over the years, one thing remains the same – we are a truly local company offering the very best in kitchens, bedrooms and home office designs. We strive to provide a seamless and efficient service, taking the hassle out of renovations and making the whole process much more enjoyable. Every member of our team is devoted to helping you create your dream home and our creative flair paired with our attention to detail allows us to deliver exceptional results every time.
