Our Story

George Burgess started as a bespoke cabinet maker in 1975 creating interiors for kitchens, bedrooms and offices. To showcase their furniture they also had studios in Leigh-on-Sea and Woodford Green. Mary Burgess joined the business at this time where she managed the studios.

In 1985  they  opened a Studio in Rayleigh. In 1999 Joanne McQuillan, their daughter, joined the expanding design team. They now import kitchens direct from Germany, where they visit regularly, also supplying quality English furniture.

Their bespoke furniture is managed by George and they use local craftsmen who assist them.  Having been in business now for some 40 years there is nothing that Roman Kitchens can’t achieve from the design stage through to completion. Each project is managed individually.

Testimonials

To Roman Kitchens,

Honestly, we can’t say a bad word about roman kitchens. They’re professional, courteous and have innovative and modern ideas.

They are very reasonably priced,
they have it all – quality value service!

Mr & Mrs Priest

We are so happy that we put our trust in Joanne and Roman Kitchens. We felt that we were in safe and creative hands right from when we first set foot in the shop. We wanted to knock through the wall between the kitchen and garage and our first idea was to keep the kitchen in the same room. Joanne listened to our ideas and our wish list but then suggested that we move the kitchen into the garage area. It was one of those light bulb moments and we have never looked back. Thank you so much for helping us realise our dream kitchen!

Andrea Mason

From my initial telephone enquiry to after-sales care, the service I have received from Roman Kitchens is second to none.
The team came up with fantastic ideas and Joanne and Jo really understand the practicalities needed in a working kitchen. The whole process from design to installation was smooth, efficient and within budget.
Thoroughly recommend this wonderful independant company to anyone who needs kitchen inspiration ⭐️

Becky Travers

How best to describe Roman Kitchens, quality, value and service, this company has all 3 of these. They are absolutely one of the best kitchen companies in essex & we have had the best experience & kitchen to prove it.

Lee Priest-Pearlman

Roman Kitchens put in my kitchen almost 9 years ago and I have had no problems whatsoever. We still love it! I also have the peace of mind if I need to update it or change anything one of their team will be there in an instant. After job service is just as important and I really value that. It shows the quality of their kitchens and the success of their business when measured against their longevity.

Debbie Dewhurst

From the moment you walk into Roman Kitchens you can tell it is a family run business, the service is personal, friendly & welcoming.

The team asked me what I required from my kitchen and then came up with some great ideas. Some options I would not have thought of myself but when mentioned knew would save me time, effort and look stylish. I had no problems with the installation and was very happy with the finished results.

I would definitely recommend this lovely family owned business.

Thank you very much.

Lindsay Davis

Shortly after moving to Rayleigh I went round to a friend’s house and she had a beautiful kitchen. It was from Roman Kitchens. I walked past the shop every day when I took my kids to school. It was 20 years later before we did some “minor” work to our house to have our dream family kitchen and Roman Kitchens was one of many companies that quoted for it.

The extension itself did not go according to plan by any means. And to say it was a stressful experience would be putting it mildly. I was studying for post grad exams and on top of that we had personal tragedy in the family which meant me travelling 600 miles every other week.

Joanne and the rest of the staff at Roman Kitchens could not have been more helpful, supportive and patient with me. She was one of a few contractors involved in our build that I trusted to do exactly what they said they would do. But she did more than that. I cannot tell you how much support and reassurance she gave me and how many times she got the samples out for me to decide wall colours, floorings etc. She was spot on with her advice and I trusted her judgement implicitly.

We have an amazing family space and a beautiful kitchen and I would most definitely recommend her and the company.
