A brand new kitchen showroom in Southport is now open!
Birkdale Kitchen Co opened in the former Laura Ashley premises in the heart of picturesque Birkdale Village on Monday, 12 April.
During lockdown, the innovative firm has already been inundated with orders for both homes and developers.
Birkdale Kitchen Co designs and fits luxury, bespoke kitchens designed individually for people – exactly the way they want it.
The firm offers a huge range of traditional designs in a wide range of styles as well as the very latest modern designs, with all the latest features and mod-cons you could wish for.
Home owners will be able to ask an Amazon Alexa to open their oven door, or turn the oven on, while settings can be made for ceiling lights to flash when the right temperature has been reached. Wireless charging technology will mean you can put your mobile phone down on the worktop and it will charge.
The company also offers a wide range of kitchen accessories.
The business is owned by Stephen Dunne, who has over 35 years experience designing kitchens, and Neil Gokcen, who has a background in technology.
Stephen said: “We offer beautifully designed German and British kitchens, fitted to perfection.
“At Birkdale Kitchen Co, our specialist design team is dedicated to helping you create your dream kitchen, no matter your space or budget.
“We are looking forward to people being able to visit our brand new showroom to view our many styles and options available for you to choose from.”
Birkdale Kitchen Co expects to operate mainly in the Birkdale, Southport, Formby and surrounding areas, but will also create kitchens for anywhere in the UK.
Neil said: “We offer the full range of kitchens, from designing and creating to fitting and installing them. If a client needs a home extension building then we can do that too.
“We provide a full design service, providing clients with a full 3D image of what their new kitchen or new space will look like. They can download the image onto their phone or and walk around their home with it to give them an idea of exactly what their new kitchen will look like.”
The new venture features some great surprises for visitors, including a secret room showcasing all the latest technology which is transforming how we use kitchens.
Dad-of-two Neil, 45, has 20 years experience as an executive in the technology sector.
He said: “Our kitchens are designed to not only be stunningly beautiful, they’re created to be ultra-functional with innovative technology for the ultimate convenience and practicality.

“In the middle of our new showroom in Birkdale we have a secret ‘connected-room’, containing all the latest technology.
“When you walk in you’ll be able to ask an Amazon Alexa to open the oven door, turn the oven on and the lights ceiling lights will even flash when your temperature has been reached!
“Wireless charging technology will mean you can put your mobile phone down on the worktop and it will charge, without the hassle of having to find a phone charger and plug it in.
“There is lots of great kitchen technology available now which we can include within our designs which will make everyday life easier for people.
“We want people to be intrigued when they walk into what we think will be the most unique kitchen showroom in the UK.
“There is a real gap in the market for something like Birkdale Kitchen Co.”
Father-of-three Stephen Dunne, 55, has huge experience in the kitchen industry.
He said: “I have been installing kitchens for people since I left school.
“I was fitting kitchens for 20 years, before moving into designing them. My previous showroom was in Longton, and I am looking forward to opening our brand new showroom in Birkdale.
“Our kitchens are conveniently designed, and extremely practical – exactly the way you want.
“They are not only designed to offer an impressive space for entertaining, they are also designed to be practical, functional and convenient. We have carefully selected a unique range of incredible kitchen accessories that suit all styles.”
