About KBD Kitchens

KBD was originally founded by Dan Tucker in 2005, who for 12 years worked as a leading designer at one of the UK’s largest kitchen specialists. Dan started KBD with designing and selling kitchens and, due to the success, quickly recognised the need for a kitchen showroom in Southend. For 10 years, the company was grown purely on reputation and recognition for doing exceptionally good quality kitchens – it was then time in 2015 for their first showroom in Southend-on-Sea.

Darren Gold, master stonemason, joined KBD in 2014 and excelled in identifying the meticulous attention to detail in time management and project management, earning him the title of Operational Director at KBD. With a growing team of experts, the team at KBD know exactly how to put a dream kitchen design to life.
