“I’m so grateful to Tamar Trading for helping me plan my new kitchen… Sally was so patient with me and her attention to detail was superb” – Mrs Linda Fuller

Tamar Trading prides itself on providing a personal service. They endeavor to really get to know their customers which enables them to provide outstanding kitchens and bathrooms tailored specifically to the customer’s needs. Many of the company’s kitchens and bathrooms come pre-assembled making them quicker and easier to install, or customers can request that Tamar Trading arrange fitting for them.  There is also the option of having a flat packed kitchen delivered, catering for all tastes and budgets. 

Sally Millergiill, the showroom manager in the Bodmin branch tells us: “I have been in the building trade for over 15 years and during this time have visited multiple sites, some of which I felt were lacking imagination when it came to kitchen design, motivating me to develop a personal and inspiring kitchen design service at Tamar Trading.” 

She alludes to the problems that can arise when businesses don’t take the time to fully understand and take on board your design needs, explaining that just by sitting down with an expert and going through each idea step by step can be a really good approach to take when planning new projects.

Sally believes the best way to create the perfect kitchen is by communicating closely with you to achieve results, both in terms of the materials used and the design implemented. Sally continues: “Nothing is more exciting than working alongside our customers, getting to know them and understanding their lifestyles. This is what ultimately gives me the inspiration to design their kitchen, not only to match their needs but also to strive to exceed their expectations.” Sally is incredibly passionate about kitchen design and is there to talk you through all the decisions, no matter how big or small, because often the fine touches have a big impact on the overall finish.

A new kitchen and bathroom showroom has recently been completed in the Bodmin branch of Tamar Trading, incorporating some of the latest design features and products to enable you to explore the quality of materials and different kitchen and bathroom design options. Sally explains: “Thanks to our new showroom, we’re now able to offer a better design service including detailed plans and drawings, and ensuring that the items you select best match your needs.”
