Second Nature Cornell

I couldn’t be more delighted with my newrooms kitchen, utility room and bathroom, although I have to say, because the project was for me, a massive undertaking, I was really concerned at the outset that the whole thing would run away from me.
I needn’t have worried.  It soon became clear that Jamie and his talented team were more than capable of dealing with every eventuality, including liaising with other contractors, seamlessly adapting the kitchen design when I “slipped in” an AGA, helping select appliances, colour schemes – the whole package!
I honestly couldn’t fault the quality of the craftsmanship of his team of plumbers, electricians and carpenters, they were a pleasure to have in my home and did excellent work.
Common sense, attention to detail and a meticulous approach have resulted in a fabulous area in my home with a real WOW! factor which I know I couldn’t have got anywhere else and of course, the customer service was superb.  Jamie has the patience of a saint, is unflappable and has the “can do” attitude that meant I ended up with exactly the kitchen, utility room and bathroom that I wanted.
I have no hesitation in recommending newrooms and will definitely be using Jamie and his team again in future.

Layout & Design

A painted kitchen in solid timber for a barn conversion in Hockwold. Built in Second Nature Cornell Almond with painted raised panelled doors and illuminated curved glazed cabinets.

The client, with a stunning barn conversion, was after an equally stunning kitchen in a classic design that would stand the test of time but with all the advantages of modern technology and with a quality and bespoke aspect not available from the high street.

The beauty of the design is completed with Galaxy Black composite stone central island, worktops and a polished marble floor.

The design maximises the limited space and complements the old style building by highlighting natural features such as beams whilst making the most of modern technology.

The soft lines and the illuminated units ensure that the area works well as a social space as well as being a serious kitchen for cooking and the central island creates extra storage and valuable preparation space but also makes it a perfect kitchen for entertaining.
