Founded by Keith and Helena Myers, The Myers Touch Kitchen Design Studio celebrates its 20th Anniversary with award-winning designers and an in-house installation team.
Founded in 2003 by husband-and-wife team, Keith and Helena Myers, The Myers Touch has been creating beautifully designed kitchens across Winchester and beyond for 20 years.
We take a look at where it all started and the accomplishments it has achieved in the past two decades.
How it started
Before starting their careers in kitchen design, Keith and Helena came from electronics and pension administration backgrounds, but during this time they had gained architectural, interior and spatial-design experience from overseeing the completion of three home renovations.
Keith and Helena left their jobs to start their business journey by founding a remodelling consultancy service operated from their home study. They ran the consultancy service from home for three years before taking on premises that would become their new design studio.
In 2015 they moved their growing business into their current showroom, a state-of-the-art architectural building that is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass which you approach through a tranquil bamboo garden.
Masters of design
The Myers Touch is recognised as one of the leading kitchen design studios in the UK. Their pioneering approach to kitchen design has led Keith and Helena to host talks at RIBA, Grand Designs Live and The Homebuilding & Renovating Show.
Over the past 20 years, The Myers Touch has been recognised in industry awards. Highlights of their success include winning the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards Kitchen Retailer of the Year in 2021, KBBFocus Kitchen Retailer of the Year and Kbsa Designer Awards (over £50k) in 2022.
The design philosophy that The Myers Touch has taken focuses on authenticity, integrity, sincerity and excellence. As they respond to the individual needs of each client, the design team ensure that each new kitchen will enrich people’s lives.
Commenting on the milestone, Keith says: "What makes our business stand apart is that we adopt a Life + Design formula to create each new kitchen commission. We combine kitchen components of the highest quality with inspirational architecture and interior design so we can unlock a client’s home potential. Our design approach ensures each of our kitchen designs enriches household relationships and the homeowner’s quality of life through the efficiency, functionality and beauty of their space which we often refer to as ‘creating kitchens with light, space and laughter’."
The Myers Touch and The Kbsa
We’re delighted that The Myers Touch have been members of the Kbsa for 15 years, joining us in 2008.
As a Kbsa kitchen specialist, The Myers Touch benefit from the many perks being a Kbsa member has to offer including consumer protection, free legal, HR and health & safety support just to name a few.
Keith was also voted in as regional chair for South and South East, along with Heath Everett as regional chair for Wales and the South West at the AGM in December 2022. In addition to his role as regional chair, Keith is also an asset in judging the Kbsa Designer Awards. His expertise in planning and design is always welcomed when it comes to selecting winners from the best designers in the industry.
Looking to the future
As part of its 20th-anniversary celebrations, The Myers Touch has re-designed its website which reveals new brands CopatLife and Eggersmann. These new brands will soon be making an appearance in the design studio which is currently being finalised.
The Myers Touch has also recently launched its own-brand kitchen range named Möbelife. This entry-level contemporary German-made kitchen collection offers a range of styles, finishes and material choices with high-quality, functional and beautiful cabinetry.
Keith and fellow designer Chad Cooper will be attending Grand Designs Live in London between Saturday 29th April and Tuesday 2nd May as part of the show’s ‘Ask the Experts’ panel. If you’re attending the show, you can book your free consultation with Keith or Chad by visiting Grand Designs Live.
