Our Story

Sanctuary Kitchens & Bathrooms owned and managed by design duo Emily Hyde and Kate Diss. It operates from a stunning showroom on Shepperton High Street.

Established in 2005, Sanctuary has grown from being a small bathroom supplier to becoming one of the best-loved kitchen and bathroom companies serving Surrey and the surrounding areas.

Sanctuary Kitchens & Bathrooms designs, supplies and installs kitchens and bathrooms for rooms of virtually any size from a compact ensuite through to a huge, open-plan kitchen or multi-room projects.


Emily Hyde – Bathroom Design Director

“I co-founded Sanctuary Bathrooms with my husband because we saw a need for an independent bathroom design, supply and installation company in the Shepperton area that was centred entirely around the customer.

I had a background in business and marketing, but always wanted to use my design flair and interior design skills. I’m realistic and I know that great rooms don’t just happen, so I act as project manager, paying attention to the details that will take our clients’ bathrooms from ‘good’ to ‘WOW!’

My big thing is to always be pushing limitations: if your room is small, we’ll make it look bigger; if it’s dark, we’ll bring in light; if you have particular needs after an accident or illness, we can make the room easier to use, or if you have a busy family, we’ll make sure it’s practical and simple to keep clean as well as beautiful. We design, supply and fit bathrooms around your lifestyle – for one family I had to take into account the needs of three labradors!”

Kate Diss, Kitchen Design Director

“I’ve been designing kitchens for 30 years and just can’t imagine doing anything else. I originally studied 3-dimensional design at Berkshire College of Art & Design, which included product design, exhibition design and interior design.

I love being really creative with designs, whether they’re for small flats or huge houses. I often throw all the balls up in the air to see what it takes to come up with a better use of space and a more innovative design. Just because most people put a sink under the window doesn’t mean that’s the best place for it! I look at how the room works, listen to what you want, and come up with a unique, creative solution that will make your kitchen the heart of your home. Our in-house team of expert installers then make sure that your kitchen is everything you dreamed of.”
