Dream Doors Newport are Re-opening

June 18th, 2020


As we prepare to return to work, we are proud to be re-opening for business in a safe and responsible manner. We have spent many weeks preparing ourselves, our staff and our showroom for when the time is right. Our customers safety is our primary consideration. From the 1st June we are starting to fit again in customers’ homes. We can also provide you with a free quotation at home from this date.

Our showroom will not re-open on 1st June as the current government guidelines do not allow it, however we can bring samples of items such as kitchen doors to your home in different styles and colours. We will re-open our showroom as soon as possible.

We will keep our showroom window posted with updates, as well as our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
