Rob Mascari
Rob MascariFounder and Managing Director
Our founder, Rob Mascari formed Kitchens by Mascari in 2008 and opened our Ruddington showroom a year later.

Upon leaving school, Rob initially intended to follow a career in architecture but soon discovered he was more at home on site than in the office. After studying construction and project management, his focus turned to design and build and subsequently, furniture design. These skills combined to give him a thorough knowledge of an entire construction project from concept to the interior fit out. Rob has designed and managed many exclusive projects and pays meticulous attention to the small details.

As well as running the business, Rob’s has multiple other interests. He is a tutor at Bucks New University for the foundation degree in Kitchen Design and a qualified NVQ assessor of kitchen and bathroom installers. He is the author of the ‘Kitchen Buyer’s Guide’ and also the founder of the Kitchen & Bathroom Forum.

Rob was included in the Designer magazine ‘D List’ in 2015 and 2019 and was honoured to have been asked to join the judging panel of the KBSA awards in 2018.

Sam Mascari
Sam MascariStudio Manager
Sam joined the family business in 2015 and completed a foundation degree in Kitchen Design in 2018, achieving a distinction.

Sam’s studies have given her a very broad understanding of how to combine and include peripheral aspects of design to achieve success in a living space. Attention to lighting, people interaction, material finishes and the wider interior design of the project are always considered in her concepts.

As studio manager, Sam is expertly trained and knowledgeable in all the products and materials we specify and is responsible for hosting our initial design consultations.

Achievements to date have seen Sam nominated as a finalist in the ‘Concept Kitchen’ category of the KBSA awards in 2018.

Never too far from Sam will be Nancy, her Yorkshire Terrier… And yes, Nancy accompanies Sam into the studio on a daily basis!

Independent Kitchen Installation Assessors

Would you like your professional skills officially qualifying by way of an On-site assessment?

There is a wealth of experienced and skilled kitchen and bedroom fitters within the KBB industry, often going unnoticed without an official qualification. If you fall into the category of being a skilled, but unqualified bedroom or kitchen installer, you can gain official recognition without the need to take time out from your work.

To gain access to sites you will need a CSCS card, this qualification will enable you to do so. An on-site assessment will offer you the chance to qualify for the NVQ by demonstrating your skills to the assessor, in your working environment.
We are fully qualified assessors of the Cskills NVQ Level 2 in Fitted Interiors.
