meet the team

Our philosophy is to provide the best quality and service at the best possible price for all budgets and we couldn’t do that without the newrooms team.

the managing director

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 fitters

We couldn’t provide the high level of fitting and service without their expert level of craftmanship, attention to detail and commitment to newrooms.

Darren has been fitting for Jamie since he started the business as a sole trader. He has a keen eye for detail and a no-nonsense approach to solve any problems encountered along the way.

We also work with a team of trusted sub-contractors for our wider project works, such as electrics, plumbing, construction and decorating. If you would like further details about the full renovation services we can offer alongside your project, please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss these further.

the designers

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.

Karyn joined the newrooms team in 2020, with 4 years of kitchen design experience at a cabinetry manufacturer in North Norfolk. She studied Product Design at Edinburgh Napier University, gaining investor interest in her final degree piece; ‘Retreat’, a compact, multi-purpose office design. This accomplishment has driven her strong passion for kitchen and interior design.

the office team

Customer service and administrative support keeps both our customers and the team happy. We pride ourselves on our after sales service and are always happy to help.

Julie joined the newrooms team in 2021, with a background in furniture manufacturing, and looks after all of our ordering and day-to-day operations. Julie will often be your main point of contact during your project and will assist you with any after-sale queries.

As one of our longest standing team members, Lynda came from a consultant background in business analysis and project management. Here at newrooms, she now looks after all things accounting and HR.

Lottie looks after all of our marketing and PR activities here at newrooms. With a degree in Business and Marketing from Oxford Brookes University, she is the best point of contact for all press and advertising enquiries.
