Helen from Bideford "Great website with helpful videos to lead me through the design. We are a long way from the showroom so did it all from the pictures and samples. Very impressed with the build quality and helpfulness of the customer services team. (Loved the little touch of including the yorkshire tea with the delivery.) Ready built made such a difference to the installation time. And it all went together without looking like a DIY project.

We used slate worktops, from a local company here in Devon. We have a lot of slate in the house, which is Georgian with a Delabole slate roof. And we used a steel splash back, made bespoke to fill the full height of the wall units with a top, so that we solved the issue of how to cope with installing an extractor fan with 3.4 m ceilings.

If I had any suggestions of extras Iíd have liked, it would have been a few more options in the wall units. Benchmarx does 350mm deep to fit bigger dinner plates, and now we are installed, that might have been handy. Also would have chosen glass doors either side of my hob, except that i needed 450 mm, and that wasnít available in my range. But I was working to quite a budget, so no complaints.

I have learned a lot about how to use the side panels, pelmets and so on, and perhaps a few more tutorials in this area might have made ordering and planning a bit more efficient. I didnít think, for example to add side panels either side of every appliance, but my joiner suggested adding to end off the plinth, rather than returning it. Luckily I have 8 more kitchens to build in my other holiday lettings apartments, so my learning will be carried forwards, and I will definitely be using DIY kitchens again. Soon.

I heard about you because I was comparing Benchmarx and Howdens (we went trade supplier because of having a group of apartments to renovate) and googled some reviews online (benchmark vs Howdens), where one reviewer offered the option that he would choose neither, but instead go with DIY kitchens. I looked you up and put together my quote and you were about 30% cheaper with great customer feedback and no apparent disadvantages. "

Charles from London "Here are photos of our new kitchen. "

Stanbury Alabaster

Carolyn from Dunstable "I love my DIY Kitchen!! After reading rave reviews on Mumsnet, it sounded like they were a great company and I wasn't disappointed. The range of styles, colours, prices and cupboard configurations was excellent and placing the order was straight forward enough. When I'd missed a few things, I phoned customer service and they were super helpful. They also helped me work out how I could hide my washing machine and tumble dryer :-) The quality of the kitchen is superb and my builder really appreciated the tea bags and biscuits which came with the delivery!!!"

Scott & Jennie from Witham "Please find attached some photos of our recently completed kitchen that we're delighted with.

We're really happy with the kitchen and super friendly and helpful service. Our fitter was extremely impressed with the quality of the units. He hadn't heard of DIY kitchens, however, was so impressed that he will now recommend them going forward."

Anne & Bill from Suffolk "We bought a DIY Kitchen last October and have finally got it installed.

We have been really pleased with our new kitchen, it is beautifully built, very robust and was so easy to build into our lovely kitchen. We love the painted wood doors and the huge range of units we had to choose from Ė it was easy to find just what we wanted.

Hope you like our pictures as much as we love our kitchen!"

Luca Gloss Alabaster

Phill from Wales "We love our new kitchen. We were impressed by the quality, could not ask for better.

We came across diy kitchens on the internet. We made time to travel down to the showroom and when we got there we were spoilt for choice. The staff were lovely and very helpful.

We made the right choice in using diy kitchens"

Helmsley Bespoke

Rob from Newcastle Upon Tyne "Hello in addition to the photos we had your company recommended by my friend who is a cabinetmaker and he said how the quality was good and how nice they were to fit. He wasn't wrong and we had good customer service throughout even correcting an oven housing size which I had wrongly ordered.

Very pleased with the kitchen as a whole. "
