New Dream Doors showroom brings low cost kitchen makeovers to Belfast


A new Dream Doors showroom has opened on the Lisburn Road, bringing low cost and high quality kitchen makeovers to Belfast and the surrounding area.  Dream Doors, is the UK’s largest kitchen makeover retailer and the Belfast showroom is its first in Ireland.


The new store will be run by Belfast resident Jon O’Hara and his partner Sarah. Jon will also hold the Dream Doors master licence in Ireland, with a remit to find additional franchisees in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.




The new showroom was opened today (10 September) in a gala champagne ceremony by Dream Doors MD, Troy Tappenden. The Dream Doors kitchen retail franchise has a presence in almost 60 UK towns and provides a kitchen makeover service at a fraction of the cost of a full re-fit, by replacing cupboard doors and work surfaces to create a completely fresh look.



 “Dream Doors has been hugely popular all over Scotland, England and Wales and I think the people of Belfast are going to relish the chance to get a kitchen makeover without weeks of hassle and disruption and at a far more affordable price,” said Jon O’ Hara, Dream Doors Belfast, showroom owner. “Lisburn Road is a wonderful location for the first Dream Doors showroom in Ireland, but Belfast really is just the start – in a few years there will be Dream Doors franchises all over Northern Ireland and the Republic.”



Jon O’Hara joins Dream Doors after a long career in retail, working for brands such as Dream Beds and Currys. At Dream Beds he was an area manager with responsibility for all aspects of operations, so he is excited about not only being the first Dream Doors franchisee in Northern Ireland, but also the holder of the Dream Doors master license for the whole of Ireland.


As well as its kitchen makeover service, Dream Doors will also design and fit an entire new kitchen, as well as offering a host of integrated appliances. All its doors are made-to-measure and of the highest quality, coming in a variety of different styles and colours to suit all tastes.

“Dream Doors is a simple concept that works brilliantly well. Everyone loves their kitchen – it’s the most important room in the house for many people – but not everyone can afford the price of a full re-fit,” continued Jon O’Hara. “By offering a kitchen makeover we can transform the appearance of someone’s kitchen in less than 48 hours. We’ve already had fantastic feedback from our pre-showroom customers and look forward to delivering an even better service now our new showroom is open.”



Headquartered in Hampshire, Dream Doors has won a number of industry awards in 2015. It became an 8-time award winner in the Franchise Marketing Awards (FMAs), and also won the ‘Franchise Recruitment’ award in the 2015 bfa (British Franchise Association) HSBC Franchisor of the Year Awards that recognise the UK’s most exceptional franchisors.



“With so many stores across England, Scotland and Wales, expanding to Ireland was the logical next step for Dream Doors,” said Troy Tappenden, MD, Dream Doors. “Ireland is a potentially massive market for us, both North and South of the border. Lisburn Road is a great spot for our first showroom here and I think Jon is absolutely the right person to help with our expansion.”
