The Kitchen Surgeon (John Baker) first started offering its unique services over 10 years ago, when John decided to take his 30 years of industry knowledge, industrial design experience and AutoCAD training, along with a passion and fresh ideas to set up his own business. Since then, The Kitchen Surgeon has thrived in providing expert kitchen makeovers and new kitchens with quality products across the North East and is fully qualified to design your dream kitchen.
John started his career in joinery and his passion quickly became his livelihood. With many years of experience in the trade, from working in shop fitting, to a line of kitchen firms, and finally taking this experience to form his own part of the industry; The Kitchen Surgeon.
“Working for kitchen firms over the years, it was clear to me that there was a gap in the industry that no one was filling. In most situations, I could see that people didn’t need a new kitchen, they needed a makeover of their current one. I decided to take the years of experience I’d gained, and the passion I had for restoring kitchens, to begin The Kitchen Surgeon.
It’s incredible how much of a difference a kitchen restoration can make. The Kitchen Surgeon is all about giving the client that great feeling of owning a brand-new kitchen, in a more affordable way.
I’m an old-fashioned joiner, with the mindset of if you are going to do something, then do it the best you can and you are only as good as your last job.
I have nothing but respect whilst being in someone’s home and always aim to achieve a professional service. Even the simple things like leaving peoples homes tidy at the end of a day is important to me.”
