ec1 Design

Founded by Eve Turner and Chris McGovern; ec1 brings a combined experience of 50 years kitchen industry knowledge.

With our expert knowledge; award winning design skills, attention to detail and project management capabilities, we create beautiful bespoke kitchens in both contemporary and traditional styles. We believe in uniting exciting and innovative designs with absolute functionality and our overall aim is to realise the vision our clients have for their ideal kitchen.

The dictionary definition of kitchen is “a room or place equipped for cooking” but we believe a kitchen is so much more than this. A kitchen is the heart of the home; it’s where people congregate and socialise. A kitchen is where we spend a great deal of our time, and where memories are made.

A kitchen needs to be both practical and stylish and because of this we don’t just design beautiful kitchens, we ensure they ‘work’ in every sense. From effective and appropriate storage solutions, to practical placement of appliances, we consider every aspect to ensure that our kitchens work perfectly.

Every kitchen we design is as unique as our clients and their needs. We recognise the importance of truly understanding our clients’ wishes, and draw inspiration from this to create perfect kitchens that not only look amazing but are a pleasure to spend time in, whether preparing a meal or socialising.

We offer a personal service and strive to build professional relationships with everyone we work with. Our clients trust us, they rely on our advice and feel confident throughout the whole process. Ultimately the result is a kitchen that surpasses all expectations.

Our clients include architects, developers, commercial property owners and individual residential customers, and we are able to accommodate a wide range of budgets. Whatever you’re looking for in a kitchen, we’d welcome a conversation with you to discuss your requirements.

We are thrilled with the kitchen that was designed for us by ec1 Design. We now have a modern streamlined and very efficient kitchen which has replaced our 25 year old wooden one. The space has been maximised and our new Miele appliances are fantastic.

It was a pleasure working with them – they are genuinely nice people.

ec1 Design project managed our kitchen in military fashion and we love it. The installation went smoothly with everything arriving on time and as scheduled. Chris and Eve helped us choose the finishes that would work well in our Art Deco house and we are so happy with the final design.

My husband and I found the thought of renovating our kitchen pretty daunting until we found ec1 Design. Chris and Eve were extremely helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. They ensured that all the details were carefully considered. We love our new kitchen, it’s perfect!
