About Us

We have been installing kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms in all parts of the North East of England including County Durham, Northumberland, Sunderland, Newcastle, Consett, Stanley and Craghead for many years. We are a family run business situated in the Durham area in a unique refurbished old church hall.


Our specialist team have many years and knowledge and experience. Led by Stephen Scott who created the business over 30 years ago. With bespoke designs our speciality. Planning, designing and installation has never been easier. 


At the heart of the company we have our very own qualified design team who can turn your thoughts of a new bathroom, kitchen or bedroom into reality. We also have a sister company J’s Kitchens who manufacture all our cabinetry exactly to our specifications. All our cabinets are made in our factory and are delivered fully assembled.


We know how important and stressful renovating can be, that’s why we have our qualified design team personally assign themselves to each individual client. A free home survey is conducted to get all measurements required for design and an informal discussion of client requirements. This is a no obligation friendly service. We tailor make everything to our client’s style and budget and with finance options available at fixed price quotations and no hidden costs.


By using the latest CAD design system, we can create a 3D computer generated image of how the renovated room will appear, giving the client the opportunity to see it from all angles and discuss further ideas.


At James Cornwell Interiors we have our own team of highly skilled specialist installers, who have been with us since the early stages. But not only that, Stephen Scott the Company proprietor and managing director personally visits client’s home on a pre-installation survey to verify all measurements and technical aspects of the job are precise. Each job is project managed from start to finish, with the client’s designer on hand throughout for any further enquiries. We will arrange, organise and plan every aspect of the job eliminating all the stress that comes with renovating.
