Trevor Pearson

Trevor Pearson


Trevor has been designing kitchens for over 35 years and has worked for Ashgrove for 14 of them. He finds it difficult to decide which of his kitchen designs has been his best as “each year, with innovations in the industry, they just get better”.

One of his most prestigious kitchens, however, was for a London-based surgeon. Used to the highest standards in his workplace, the customer wanted the absolute best in all materials used to construct his kitchen: “So it made suggesting options a complete delight”.

In his leisure time he enjoys the age-old simplicity of fly fishing, as well as cooking at home and eating out.

An outstanding service from beginning to end. A high quality kitchen which meets our needs and exceeds our expectations. Grateful thanks to all the team.
