News, offers and promotions at Nordstrom Timber
We have some fantastic news…
Our sales lines will be reopening from Monday 4th May at 8am. During this stage of reopening we are making deliveries only and our premises aren’t open to the trade or public.
We will continue with the same strict procedures we established before lockdown to protect our staff, following the government guidelines. This includes PPE and adhering to the 2m social distancing rules.
Finally, until further notice we have revised business opening times:
Open Monday to Friday: 8am to 4.30pm only.

Following Government guidelines, we believe the responsible approach is to temporarily close our company for the next three weeks. This situation is unprecedented, and these measures have not been taken lightly.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused during this period but will take all measures to fight the spread of this virus and to support the Government.
We will keep you updated on any further developments as when they are announced by the government regarding re-opening.
We would like to thank all our valued customers for their support and words of encouragement at this time.
Any updates will be posted accordingly both on Facebook and our website.
Please stay safe and well.

Whenever homeowners are faced with choosing new window frames, whether updating your existing set or starting a self-build project, one of the questions that inevitably crops up is what material to use. At Nordstrom Timber, we specialise in designing and manufacturing bespoke wooden window frames that can completely transform the look of your home and potentially add thousands of pounds to the overall value. Here are just some of the advantages of choosing wooden window frames.
Nothing can beat the warm and elegant look of wooden windows in the home. You also get the added flexibility of being able to tailor your frames by choosing from a wide selection of woods including mahogany, oak or maple. Wooden window frames can also be carved, stained or painted to seamlessly blend in with your current style or even help you create a whole new look. Traditional homes in particular tend to benefit the most from wood frames, but they can also be modified to create a sleek contemporary look for newer homes.
Compared to their PVC-u counterparts, timber windows are the much more environmentally friendly choice. We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and ensure all of our wood is sourced from well managed and sustainable forests. All of the timber we use meets the policies and guidelines set out by the C.P.E.T. (Central Point of Expertise in Timber) and we also recycle at every possible stage to ensure our carbon footprint is reduced.
Despite the initial outlay being higher, quality wooden windows tend to provide much better value for money for several reasons. The first is that the lifespan of timber far outweighs that of other materials and can easily last a lifetime with the right care, meaning you won’t have to spend money every few years to replace them. They also have incredible insulation properties, providing 400 times more than steel and 1800 times more than aluminium framed windows which results in huge savings on energy bills.
Nowhere in the North East offers a better service than ourselves when it comes to designing and manufacturing wooden window frames. We have over six decades of experience in the business and have recently moved to a brand new, purpose designed premises which has helped us increase our manufacturing capabilities.
We also designed a show home in the new building which gives you the chance to see our work in a real-life setting as well as browse our on-site Joiner’s Shop. Alternatively, you can contact us here for more information on any of our products.
Whether you want a completely new kitchen designed to your exact specifications or some new kitchen worktops, Nordstrom has everything you need all under one roof. We have over six decades of experience in the business and have helped people all over the North East design their dream kitchens. We work with our associate industry partners to ensure you get both high quality and great value kitchens whatever your budget.
Below, you’ll find three of the most popular styles of kitchen:
Defined by on-trend colours, high gloss frontals and integrated appliances, modern kitchens come in a huge variety of styles perfect for contemporary homes. Handleless kitchens in particular are growing in popularity and are ideal for streamlining the room to create a sleek and stylish finish. Ovens and hobs are often integrated to help compliment the style and you can also choose from a wide range of extra touches such as pop-up TVs and SERVO-DRIVE technology.
A style that effortlessly blends traditional and contemporary design, shaker kitchens were originally created in the 18th century and remain as popular today as they ever has been. The shaker style is characterised by elegant lines and strong proportions, often using wood as the main material, with period colours such as creams, greys, blues and greens the most popular choices. You can also add a more contemporary touch by using more modern materials such as granite or quartz and by adding glass panels or modern door handles.
From rustic farmhouse designs to classic Edwardian styling, the traditional kitchen has rightly remained a popular choice for homeowners all over the UK. The foundation of a great traditional kitchen lies in using the best materials such as solid oak to create a warm and comforting look. Many also use decorative elements such as glass inserts, hand crafted canopies and pilasters to further enhance the rustic feel. A traditional kitchen doesn’t mean you have to go without the latest amenities and appliances though, with range cookers in particular being a great addition while being technologically advanced enough to cater for even the most demanding chefs.

Nothing can transform your home quite like a magnificent wooden staircase, whether you are looking for a contemporary design with floating glass or a grandiose Tudor oak staircase complete with authentic spindles and panellings. However ambitious your plans, Nordstrom draw on over 60 years of experience in the trade and have the skill to bring even the most ambitious plans to life. We’ve done everything from designing bespoke wooden staircases for listed buildings to creating modern masterpieces for brand new homes.
In this blog, we’re going to take a closer look at a few of the most popular types of staircase.
Straight Staircases – An ever popular design, the beauty of straight staircases is in the simplicity but many different features can be added to make them unique. They are usually the easiest to manufacture, therefore the most cost effective, and work best in minimalist homes. No landing is required if the number of risers is less than 16 or if the overall vertical height is less than 12 feet.
Quarter Turn Staircases (or “L-Shaped”) – Similar to straight stairs, but with a 90 degree bend built into some portion of the stair which is often achieved by adding a landing at the bend transition point. Quarter turn staircases can be more visually interesting and also add some privacy and soundproofing between floors. They are also considered to be safer as the landing reduces the number of treads one could potentially fall.
Winder Staircases – Another variation of the l-shaped staircase, winder stairs differ by having a pie shaped or triangular steps at the corner transition. Visually, winder staircases seem to create a more seamless transition as they meander around corners making them a popular choice for contemporary homes. The compactness of the design also makes them a great space saving solution making them attractive in sustainable home designs.
