When I bought my house last year it had carpet in the bathrooms, a disgusting whirlpool bath that you recommended I didn’t use and an ensuite where it felt like I was peeing in a corridor.
I was actually exhausted from the whole move and unable to have a vision about how I could transform those two rooms, but with your suggestions and ideas a vision was created and you have designed the most wonderful spaces for me and my boys.
Not only is the design genius, but you and your team work tirelessly to get the job done, even finding time to give my son advice on how he could build a desk from old floorboards!
I cannot tell you how much I love my home now and would not hesitate to recommend you to others…the real testimony is that I have asked you to do the kitchen next!

I set Simon a challenge to design a state of the art kitchen for a very small space. His attention to detail, the quality of the products, and his design recommendations resulted in the perfect space for us to cook, entertain and to simply enjoy. A major kitchen renovation is daunting but Simon ensured that the whole project was completely hassle free for us and also importantly for our ancient cat!! However, I know that behind the scenes, Simon was busy coordinating, ironing out any blips due to suppliers and ensuring that everything went smoothly from start to finish.
The Inside Outside team are completely trustworthy, professional and courteous and the “pre & post” care and support provided is outstanding. Simon is a perfectionist - there were a couple of doors to the units that had almost imperceptible imperfections that he somehow spotted with his eagle eyes and arranged to replace.
Simon is a great designer and craftsman and what was important to me was that he truly cared about my kitchen project and he cares about his clients.
At last count, over the years Simon has helped us with 5 bathrooms and a cloakroom across three houses. I know with Simon that I will get great quality work, reliable and respectful workmen, practical advice, a high degree of professionalism and the occasional entertaining story. I’m currently planning an ensuite and I’m sure Simon will do a great job with that one too.
When we were looking to convert our dining room and kitchen into a modern open plan area, we could not seem to find the design that we were looking for despite talking to a number of designers - then we found Simon Brind. What was refreshing about him was that because he listened carefully to what we were asking for, he was able to offer alternative solutions that would work more effectively to deliver exactly what we wanted.
We now have a high quality kitchen that has impressed everyone that has seen it. Right from the start of the project, through to its completion, it was a real pleasure to deal with Simon and all his team.
We got Simon back to project manage an extension and some fairly major work internally. It's not really the sort of thing he does, but we cajoled him into doing it because we wanted the reassurance that everything would be fine. What I neglected to say in my first testimonial was we chose Simon for reassurance; we just had a good feeling that he knew what he was doing and that it would be done well. And it all was; we've now got a great kitchen, new entry room, office and laundry room, and in a couple of weeks time Simon and the boys will be back to sort out our bathroom.
I have mentioned this elsewhere, but do be prepared to be chatted to within an inch of your life! That's really not a downside though. If you're thinking of having this type of work done, just get Simon; you really won't regret it.
Simon and his team have now completed 2 jobs for us replacing a whole bathroom and refitting a laundry room. In both cases the work was completed to a high standard within both budget and the time frames given. In addition at the planning stage Simon really listened to my ideas (even though he does chat a lot) and then worked through with me to ensure that every stage was agreed.
They sorted out any little issues they found and best of all everything was left clean and tidy and all rubbish removed and disposed of. We would use them again in the blink of an eye and recommend to others without hesitation.

Inside Outside have done a couple of jobs for us; on both occasions we found the standard of work to be excellent. Simon was very helpful in suggesting different ways to tackle the jobs and worked well with us to find a mutually acceptable plan.
Furthermore Simon and his team are completely trustworthy and we were happy to go away leaving Simon with a key; we felt certain that the work would be completed correctly and on time. We have no hesitation in recommending Inside Outside.

Simon was recommended to us after several false starts with other contractors. He was professional from the outset, providing a detailed quotation for the work and keeping me up to date with progress throughout the job. Although he encountered various unexpected problems as the work progressed he was able to find solutions to all of them and always took the time to explain the issues to me. Simon has a great eye for detail and strives to achieve the finish that the client will be delighted with.

Simon and his team fitted a kitchen for me last year. The job was pretty complicated as it meant moving electrics and generally fitting a gallon into a pint pot - but they did it. What impressed me most, in addition to their great skills and workmanship, was the attitude of the whole team. Always cheerful, tidied up after themselves, turned up when they said they would and also completely trustworthy.
I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Having previously used Simon for our family bathroom refurb he was our first port of call when we wanted to knock through and create a kitchen diner with bi-fold windows across the back of the house.
The project was more than just a kitchen or bathroom refit but Simon was prepared to take it on and was invaluable as the project manager of the whole set of works. He helped us make the most of the ideas we originally had and then managed his team, as well as all the other trades and suppliers, to ensure it all came together. It was essential to us that there was someone we trusted implicitly to organise this project as we both work and didn't have the time or more importantly the experience to ensure it would be a success. We're absolutely thrilled with the final results and can't thank Simon and his team enough.
Having recommended Simon and his team to two friends they have both used him for their kitchen and bathrooms after careful comparison to other companies, what more can we say!

We live in a house that is 100 years old, and we asked Simon to design two new bathrooms plus the creation of a new cloakroom. Simon came up with an excellent plan and worked hard with his team to the highest standards over many weeks. We had an issue with water pressure coming into the house, but Simon worked with our heating engineer to solve that with a new megaflow system. Simon was always on top of everything during the whole project - friendly, tidy and punctual.
One year on, it's been an immense upgrade for our house, and the shower experience in both bathrooms is fabulous.
