“It really is an essential tool for me and for all my designers. And, with the 360° panoramas, my clients actually feel like they are in the room looking at it from every angle. So not only is it a great design tool, it’s also a great selling tool!”—Sarah McCrossan
Sarah has been a kitchen designer nearly 20 years, learning the ropes early on from her father who was a builder. She bought her first property at the age of 21, a derelict house in the heart of the New Forest National Park, which was in such a poor state of repair she couldn’t get a mortgage until she persuaded her local bank manager to go and see it.
She joined Hardleys in Hythe as a trainee, where she stayed for 8 years, and then after a year out, she set up Herbert William in 2007. The business, which is named after Sarah’s two grandfathers, started from home but very soon grew and moved to its current location, a former cowshed, in 2009. She now runs the business in partnership, with John Breaker and Lee Snelgrove heading up the installation side of the business.
