Staffordshire Kitchens expands as stay at home residents triggers demand for home improvements

A kitchen design company has been so busy since lockdown lifted that the owner has taken on a second designer.

Staffordshire Kitchens opened its first showroom in North Walls, Stafford, in mid-March, only to close it again as the UK locked down to fight coronavirus. But owner, Sandra Johnson, an interior designer, continued to provide support to clients during lockdown and has seen trade surge since reopening on an appointment only basis.

“There’s been high demand and people are looking to transform their home interiors this summer,” said Sandra. “I have now taken on a second experienced designer and we’re both extremely busy.”

Sandra added: “Many people were forced to stay at home during lockdown and a lot of people are still working from home and this is driving demand. They are looking at their surroundings and wondering how improvements can be made. Some may even have some spare money available which they saved up for a foreign holiday that’s no longer on the cards.”

Staffordshire Kitchens has also joined the KBSA, a specialist organisation for independent kitchen, bedroom and bathroom design companies. Explained Sandra: “The KBSA has a code of conduct and members are monitored, which offers customers peace of mind. It also means we can offer accredited finance for home improvements through Phoenix, a company registered through the Financial Conduct Authority.

“Our new designer, Kevin Lewis (pictured), has years of experience working on kitchen and bedroom designs and will be working at Staffordshire Kitchens full time. Due to social-distancing precautions, we are operating an appointments only service. Customers are welcomed at our Stafford showroom, where they can see a selection of the kitchens we offer. A home appointment can follow and we use the latest 3D design technology to help people visualise how a new kitchen will look in a home.

Staffordshire Kitchens specialises in high quality, mid-priced German-designed kitchens and is backed by a team of experienced kitchen fitters.

Sandra added: “I also run a successful interior design business and the addition of kitchens means we can help home owners create their dream home, providing design ideas for every room.

The Staffordshire Kitchens showroom, at North Walls, Stafford,  also showcases interior design by Sandra’s award winning company FunkyWunkyDooDahs.
