Meet the Expert – Graham Hooper

“I am extremely grateful for Graham’s excellent design work and help in giving us a lovely new kitchen. We get a lot of compliments from friends who admire it and we are always happy to recommend Lacewood Designs.”

About Graham

I am the founder and owner of Lacewood Designs, a husband to Sarah, a father to 3 grown-up children and a VERY proud grandad to 3 (so far!) lovely grandchildren.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and being actively involved with the church my wife and I have been part of for almost 30 years.

I have been designing and making kitchens since I was made redundant from my job in agriculture in 1987. With a young family to provide for and at a crossroads in my life, I pursued my former hobby and started making furniture to sell locally. This soon progressed to designing and making kitchen cabinets and, as they say, the rest is history!

Lacewood Designs was initially run from my home, but following 5 successful years of trading, our showroom was opened in-store at Salisbury Gas Centre. To this day we continue to design and install beautiful bespoke kitchens.

Our Ethos

I am very passionate about the fact that we do not mass produce our designs. Our service is bespoke and based entirely on your needs and vision. When I meet with you, my aim is to gain as clear a picture of your ideal kitchen as I can, by discussing with you in detail and clearly listening to what you want. I am always happy to offer suggestions as to how your objectives may be achieved and great attention will be paid to the layout of the room and how the space may be used best. The result will be a unique kitchen that reflects your style and personality and a kitchen that works for YOU. Whether your budget is £5000 or £50,000 we will endeavour to meet your requirements in a way that does not merely fit “boxes” into a room.

Project Management

We aim to provide a complete service for our customers. Over the years I have worked with many reliable tradespeople and have drawn together a “team” that includes architects, builders, electricians, plumbers, tilers, floor layers and decorators. We can organise and co-ordinate the involvement of all of these traders as required, making the installation and fitting of your kitchen as hassle-free as possible.
