Managing Director

Simon at Pittville Bathroom & Kitchens

Simon opened his first showroom, Pittville Bathrooms, in Cheltenham in 2007, followed by a separate kitchen showroom in 2010. In 2016 he expanded the business further to offer a premium range of design solutions for bedrooms, living spaces and home offices, all supported by a holistic interior design service.  His most recent addition to the business sees an expansion from indoors to outside, with the launch of a luxury spas showroom in 2017.
Simon has a BSc Hons in Landscape Architecture and is a trained bathroom, bedroom and living space designer. In his life before Pittville, Simon worked as a carpenter, both domestically and in the television and music industries as a set builder.
In 2016 Simon successfully graduated as a retained firefighter and now splits his time between Pittville and the Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service.
On the rare occasions he isn’t working, Simon enjoys training for ironman triathlons and just about anything that involves running, cycling or swimming! He completed the London Marathon in 2014 & 2016 in aid of the charity Children in Crisis. Simon also enjoys spending time with his family and cooking up delicious food in his kitchen.
Simon in three words: confident, undaunted, smart.

‘It is a privilege to be welcomed into someone’s home or property to create a space that they will get to enjoy for many years. We are very lucky to work in some fabulous places and meet some wonderful people.’

Simon’s top tips for planning a new kitchen or bathroom:

I always advise clients to think carefully about their budget before they set out, as it needs to include not only the products, but also the installation, building work and finishing touches.

Simon’s top design tips:

  1. Gold is back!
  2. Slimline and minimalist designs continue to be popular – sometimes a case of design over practicality unfortunately!
  3. The shower as a central feature in the bathroom space, the bigger the better!
  4. Matt and lacquer finishes are big in bedrooms, combined with plenty of storage to hide everything away and clever lighting to complete the look.
