Modern Homes was formed in 1982, by Michael and Elaine Burns, retailing kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms from a rented property on South Watt Street, Workington, now a child care centre.
In 1985 the present property was purchased which covers 3 floors, which was converted into a kitchen and bedroom showroom.
Joanna, their daughter, joined the business in 2004 after gaining her university degree, and through her enthusiasm brings the latest products and design to this part of West Cumbria
Modern Homes traded from a showroom in Puerto Banus, Marbella until 2009, when the recession
hit hard on the Costa del Sol. After closing the showroom, Modern Homes still supplies kitchens and bedrooms to Marbella through Halcyon Properties, which is located in the Cristimar Centre, Puerto Banus.
At Modern Homes, which has have been trading for 36 years, it has been imperative to keep up with the latest trends in the furniture and appliance industry.
