We are delighted to introduce Norman Jamieson who has recently joined the Doors and Floors family.  When we say “family”, that’s exactly what we mean.

Norman has worked in retail all of his working life  – Branch Manager of Arcadia until their closure in 2021.

I have known Norman since the first year at comprehensive school, he was best man at my wedding in 2000 and I was his in 2003 when he married Amanda.

Norman’s sister Tina is also married to my older brother Malcolm.

You can meet Norman at our Benton showroom.

I would also like to introduce Shaun McCaffery who also recently joined our Blaydon store.  Shaun is responsible for organising and keeping our warehouse in order, and we can’t wait for him to work his magic!

With his partner Sammie they have a young son called Oliver.  Sammie is also the Goddaughter of one of Sam’s friends, Claire.

It great when we can make such positive and experienced additions to Doors & Floors, adding to our already dedicated and knowledgeable staff.



We have followed the COVID-19 guidelines to the letter and are so excited to be back to work properly and able to welcome our customers back into our showrooms. It has been a difficult time for everyone, particularly for small businesses but we have come out of the other side and are primed and ready to go.

During our imposed lockdown, we have refurbished our Blaydon showroom whilst still providing our first class service over the telephone. We thank all of our customers who have ordered from us during this time.

So we can’t wait to see you all, and show you the amazing products we have in our showrooms and much more besides.

Get in touch or come and see us and as usual, no gimmicks, no silly sales, just the best prices we can offer you at all times.

See you soon.


February 2021

We want to clarify that we have checked, double checked oh and triple checked with the local councils whether we are permitted to open our showrooms to the public at the current time.  Whilst we feel that we are an essential business, the lockdown rules say different, so unfortunately, we cannot accept appointments.  Believe us, if we could, we would.

We are still able to offer as much help and assistance as we can over the telephone, we can give you a live WhatsApp video call to show you the range of products we have and to help you choose.  We can still arrange for the fitters to come out and measure up and can deliver or you can collect your products to be fitted.

After the most recent Government announcement, we are hopeful that we can reopen our doors on 12 April.  We will have any safety measure required, in place and will be ready and raring to go.

We would like to thank our extremely loyal customers for sticking with us.  We have still managed to help a considerable number of homes be transformed with our products, despite the lockdowns, tier systems and anything else that has been thrown at us.  Of course, we couldn’t do any of this without our fantastic and hardworking staff.

So, let us all continue to be positive.  There is light at the end of the tunnel, we will have a newly refitted showroom at Blaydon to show off and we can’t wait.


You might not be able to come to us but we can help you shop at our Benton or Blaydon stores. Here is a video of our Blaydon showroom, take a look at the huge range of products we have on display. If you would like to arrange a virtual shop with us, just contact us and we will take you around the showroom on WhatsApp. We can talk you through the different ranges we have and show you in real time the selection of colours and styles. Make transforming your home easy without leaving the warmth and comfort of your sofa. Contact us today……….
