All our recent customers shown below have agreed to allow photographs of the completed project to be used on our web site
and give a short, honest quote about the service and quality of our work.
Mrs T. from Gosforth was bored with her old kitchen.
There was nothing wrong with the layout and the cabinets were in excellent condition.
Rather than replace the kitchen at huge expense she decided to completely change the ‘look’ by having the doors, cornice, light pelmets, wine rack, end panels and fillers sprayed in a long lasting durable finish. Using Farrow & Ball Manor House Grey and Moles Breath as a contrast with new antique brass handles, the existing worktop which looked rather tied against the dark wood, now shines and the whole room has been transformed into a light bright and contemporary new kitchen.
"The whole team is courteous, hardworking and professional.
Our kitchen has been transformed and a new landing library created where once there was just wasted space.
Thanks to all at NOOKdesign."
Mrs T, Gosforth
Mr & Mrs J from Ponteland spent 18 months sympathetically restoring their beautiful family home to it’s original glory.
With period fittings and simple decoration relying on the authentic cornices, skirting boards and fireplaces to give character and style. They had two requests, firstly to design and install two built in alcove units in the family room, either side of the fireplace to house books, a small fish tank and large TV, with access to electrical connections using precisely matched skirting and picture rails.
Secondly, they wanted his and hers wardrobes recessed into alcoves in the master bedroom, bespoke fitted internally to suit each of them individually and painted in Farrow and Ball Green Smoke with solid pewter handles.
‘Nook design have done a wonderful job with our alcoves and fitted bedroom wardrobes.
Throughout the design phase they listened to our wishes particularly our desire to ensure the alcoves and wardrobes complemented the Edwardian features of our house.
They brought that design to life with both craftsmanship and attention to detail during the installation phase.
The team are perfectionists.
On top of all that at the end of each day you wouldn’t know they’d been working as
they left everything incredibly tidy. Delighted.’

Mrs E from Gosforth had several projects for NOOK design to complete the transformation of her family house.
She wanted cupboards built into the eves of her converted loft, creating much needed storage space,
along with library book shelves in the study. And to complete the entrance hall, shoe and coat storage in a small alcove off the hallway with a hall seat, bespoke wicker baskets with oak display shelves all painted in Purbeck Grey from Farrow & Ball
to compliment the newly decorated and carpeted home.
"Nook design were completely professional from the beginning to the end of the job.
They listened to me and then designed exactly what I was after!
I now have fabulous looking fitted furniture in what was unused awkward areas.
Looks brilliant and I just wish I had done it years ago!
And I got daily updates on what work had been done & what to expect the next day.
Never had that before!
They come highly recommended!"
Bespoke solid Oak Fireplace with matched grain oiled and polished in tung oil, crafted and installed in the home of an Under Staircase client in Jesmond.
Mr & Mrs C. From Prudhoe were quite happy with the layout of they're existing kitchen, but it was dated and tired having been fitted almost twenty years previously. The cabinets and doors were solid timber and whilst being dark and rather old fashioned they were in excellent condition.
Rather than rip out the existing kitchen and start again, in consultation with NOOK Design our clients decided to up-grade the whole room based on the original units.
The old artex ceiling was re-boarded and skimmed, the tiles and old worktops removed and the walls re-plastered and the whole kitchen rewired with new inset spot lights and under cabinet lighting.
The cabinet doors and panels were removed and along with new cornice, light pelmets and plinths were prepared and then spray painted in Farrow & Ball Inchyra Blue and Light Blue No.22.
The wasted space under the staircase was open up, and new matching angled doors install with extra deep matching drawers installed to exact clients requirements.
The wall were decorated in Farrow & Ball estate emulsion Pavilion Blue and the new ceiling and wood work bright white.
New solid laminate 12mm worktops and back splash was fitted along with a Franke sink and solid oak breakfast bar area, a new Range and hood from Stoves completed the transformation.

"I found you on Google!
Then a close examination of your website and reading reviews and comments.
I think it was the picture on your site of the jigsaw drawer with the jigsaw piece cut-out opener that made me think we would work well together!
And, I think, we have - despite the less than ideal circumstances during the ‘
I’ve found it an easy and even enjoyable process and have been impressed with everyone’s professionalism."
