When George boldly began his namesake kitchen company in 2002, he built upon a wonderful and storied family heritage within the sphere of artisanal craft and carpentry. However, even with such strong foundational roots, he could never have imagined the incredible journey of creativity and compassion that lay mapped out before him.
In the years and decades since, the kitchen and fine furniture-crafting adventures of the GRK team have allowed us the incredible honour of collaborating with a host of extraordinary and visionary homeowners from across the UK and beyond.
These shared experiences have given us the opportunity to learn so much—not only about the rewards of creating truly spectacular and joyfully functional interiors, but also of the innate pleasure that comes with developing concepts in unison, playfully teasing out new ideas, and bringing dream projects to life in tangible, hardwood form.
Remarkably, as the company has grown and matured, George has retained the two original staff members that he started out with all those years ago. Of course, the GRK family has also expanded along the way, uniting a dynamic team that draws together the most phenomenal skills and experience.
In recognition of our current coming-of-age milestone, it only seemed fitting to do something special to celebrate the arrival of the 21st anniversary of George Robinson Kitchens.
With this in mind, we are thrilled to announce that we have rebranded and launched a new website to mark the occasion. We truly hope that you will enjoy this elevated digital experience, as we look forward to discovering what the upcoming decades have in store for the GRK team and our incredible clients.
As ever, while we may cherish the glorious aesthetics and innovations of modernity whenever our customers wish it so, we also continue to hold absolute reverence for time-honoured techniques and impeccable craftsmanship at the core of everything that we do.
We believe that it is our dedication to kitchen design and fine furniture making as art forms that ensures the relationships we share with our clients stand up to the test of time. Nothing gives us greater joy than reconnecting with familiar faces as customers return to GRK, time and time again.
Just recently, we were delighted to receive feedback from just such clients, after coming together for the creation of their third GRK kitchen. Here's what Chris and Heather had to say about their kitchens:
“We bought our first from George Robinson Kitchens around 15 years ago, the second 8 years ago, and now we’re onto our third. All very different properties with different challenges—but each kitchen design made the most of the space, for beauty and functionality. We keep coming back—for George’s design expertise, his team’s craftsmanship, and of course the absolute quality of the end result. Each time we have appreciated the creative flair, and general support throughout the process. A quality experience.”Chris and Heather
Alongside gratitude for such feedback, we're also happy to say that Chris and Heather are not alone, being amongst many previous clients who frequently return to George. These customers, often having moved house or purchased a second home while dreaming of planning another one-of-a-kind kitchen or bespoke furniture piece, know that we are always ready to help them put a unique and cherished stamp on their latest interior project.
Throughout these interactions, George strives to create—and we all get to enjoy—a family atmosphere amongst clients old and new, forging an ever-expanding community of continued supporters and fuelling the immense pride that we collectively take in our work.
So, as we all raise a glass to 21 years of shared adventure and many more yet to be seen, we hope that you will join the celebration and continue alongside us. Perhaps these exciting shots from behind the scenes at GRK will inspire you, for we are certain that the best is yet to come!
