Home>About us

A Wood Idea , a corny name admittedly but with a grain of logic to it, was created in 2011 in a small place called Blaydon in Tyne and Wear, home of the Blaydon races and now home to the best flooring and door outlet in the North East.  As the name suggests we sell all things wood: wooden floors, doors and staircases. We also have a team of craftsmen providing a local fitting service second to none.

Too often our homes are built with the emphasis on cost rather than design. Doors, stairs and floors are there for function as opposed to aesthetics. With this in mind and our background in the timber merchant industry A Wood Idea was founded to supply the finest hardwood floors, doors and stairs. We are passionate about interacting with our suppliers and customers, keeping our range creative, innovative and truly wonderful.

Aims of our business:

- To give our customers a super- efficient, sincere, fabulous and overall exceptionally wonderful experience both in store and on line.

- To be thought of the best place to shop either on line or in store for Doors, flooring, staircases and flooring and door accessories

- To provide a family oriented, caring environment for our wonderfully talented staff to work in

Who’s who?

Iain Smith – Managing Director

Many, many years ago, back in the heady times of New Romantics, when hair and fashion was best forgotten, a young Iain turned down an offer for Chelsea and Glasgow schools of art. He was a dab hand with a pencil but the world of work and the lure of timber technology captured his heart and imagination. At the tender age of 17 Iain joined the timber industry, working with a Scottish hardwood timber importer and merchant in Glasgow and spent the rest of his career to date cultivating his passion for all things wood.

Andy Brown – Director

Having fallen fowl of a dodgy knee which cut short his pro-football career Andy fell into the industry because football management wasn’t challenging enough. This opened a new door for him and has certainly been to our advantage. His passion for Newcastle may be his first love but his knowledge of wooden products is most certainly top of the premier league

Lorna Smith – Director

After working for many years in Customer service for the rail industry, managing National Rail Enquiries customer service complaints team, Lorna decided to take the arguably easier route of bringing up kids for a while. Now that they are both teenagers it is easy to see why she is back working with us at A Wood Idea where she manages our purse strings as well as several other things which Iain and Andy chuck her way

Scott Cooper -Sales

A keen biker and mechanical guru, Scott has over 15 years in the industry but would have rather been cruising the Australian outback on a classic motorbike.

Chris Johnson - Sales

Our newest member of staff proving to be an instant hit with staff and customers alike.
