Getting to know each other

As we'll be working with you for a while as we design, then install, your new kitchen, bedroom or bathroom we like to get to know our customers. And so we thought you might like to know a little bit about us too.

At its heart Lifestyle Designs is a family business, started 15 years ago by Michael Telford. Michael started in Consett, steadily growing the business from being to just him to now having a team of staff, a stunning showroom and the most advanced factory in the Durham area.

We are still proud to based in Consett and welcome enquiries from Hexham, Gateshead, Newcastle and beyond.

With a choice of kitchens from Second Nature and Burbidge, bedrooms from Kindred and the widest range of appliance names including NEFF. Franke and Belling we can work with you to design a truly individual kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.

Our Process

Take your time

At Lifestyle Designs NE, we understand that choosing a new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom is a big decision and we don’t want you to feel rushed or pressurised in any way.

You’re more than welcome to call into our Consett showroom at any time.

And to keep coming back as inspiration hits you!

Come and chat with us

We can also arrange exclusive no-obligation appointments with you at our showroom in Consett.

This will give you the opportunity to discuss your requirements with our talented designers, view our ranges of kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms and see the quality of our work up close.

If you are coming from further afield, maybe Hexham or Newcastle, please do not hesitate to call ahead to book an appointment.

Designing your room

After your visit to us we will visit you at home to start the design process.

We will get a feel for the space, listen to what you want to achieve in terms of design and functionality and ask about how you will use your room.

We will provide you with a design that will become, we very much hope, your dream kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
