This family business has it roots in the kitchen industry spanning back to the 1950s, when current Moore By Design Director Maurice Moore began distributing kitchen appliances throughout the UK to major house builders. His company, ABK, rapidly became the market leader in its field, with warehouses throughout the UK.
Moore By Design Ltd was founded by Maurice’s son David Moore in 1997 and we now operate from showrooms in Hersham, Surrey. In 2002, David’s wife joined the business and now looks after the accounts. Fellow Director Mark Butler joined the business in 2014, bringing with him a wealth of experience with over twenty five years in the industry, most of which running his own successful business. In 2016, the team were joined by Ann Battensby who brings ten years experience from positions in central London and Esher of managing kitchen projects and ensuring goods are where they need to be, when they need to be there. Between us, we have over sixty years experience and we are all still passionate about and thrive on what we do. A crucial point to note is that the designer you commence the process with, David or Mark, will remain your point of contact from the very beginning until final completion giving you a continuous relationship throughout.
We operate on an exclusive basis with our German partner, Beckermann Kuechens. Beckermann offer an unrivalled range of classic and contemporary kitchens which are manufactured to order in their factory in Cappeln, Northern Germany. Beckermann are possibly the most flexible German manufacturer there is; we can offer over 300 laminate colours, over 20 solid or veneer woods and any lacquer colour you require either high gloss or matt. Although German kitchens have a reputation of being rather costly, we deal directly with the factory in Germany—there is no expensive sales office or showroom in the UK to maintain, which is reflected in the prices.
As our name implies, we offer a full bespoke kitchen design, supply and installation service for the discerning client. We focus on the design of your kitchen. Kitchens are no longer a place just to store and prepare food – they are now the hub of the home and increasingly are forming part of a larger open plan living area, and thus placing more and more emphasis on the design and the materials used. However, every kitchen is a balance between three crucial factors: the aesthetics, the practicality and the cost. We aim, through listening and talking to you, to arrive at the ideal balance between these factors.
We offer our initial consultation, design and quotation without obligation or charge so please contact us to see the different approach we can bring to ensure your kitchen is designed exactly how you want it, and installed exactly how you want it, within the agreed time frame and within the agreed cost.
