After a stint in management at a local horticultural company, Jamie decided to combine his organisational and design skills with his flair and passion for art. The result was newrooms, a thriving business which has grown quickly since its inception in 2008. Alongside working and running a company, Jamie spent 17 years as a retained fire-fighter eventually retiring when expansion of newrooms reached a point when he needed to be completely focused on the business. This meant that he no longer needed to leave the office mid-conversation and has made life easier, although a little less exciting, for his staff!
Jamie takes responsibility for the day to day running of the company as well as overseeing all the design work; he also manages the projects and looks after all things technical. His passion, flair and expert product knowledge constantly drives the company forward. During his free time Jamie is a keen footballer and is enthusiastic about health and fitness.
The design is the first part of the process and very important to get right. Our friendly, patient designers spend the time looking at all aspects of your wish list and design to make sure that you get the kitchen that you want and that will work for you.
Abigail is an experienced designer with a background in kitchen design and planning for a national kitchen retailer. She was looking for an independent retailer who was quality and service led and believed in a more personal hands-on approach.
Jenny comes from an engineering and art and design background with a keen interest in building and maintaining historical vehicles and traction engines. She is the newrooms technical guru on metal and paint finishes.
