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 I’d 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 wasn’t 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 didn’t 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. "

Linwood Mussel

Phil & Joy from Basingstoke "Hi, first of all, just a few words and thanks for the opportunity.

I had seen very positive comments about DIY Kitchens in a forum and decided to do a little research. This led me to the excellent web site with the virtual tour. We were very impressed so decided to drive up and make a weekend of the stay. We were glad we did and were to then make two further journeys to finalise everything.

Designing our kitchen took time and careful consideration, and three visits to Yorkshire to the fantastic showroom. The design stage was made all the more easy due to the available downloadable templates which really helped. Above all though, special thanks to the support team who were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. Response to support tickets was usually pretty much instant, and a wait of more than an hour extremely rare.

The delivery of the kitchen was a little late in the day, but the drivers were very apologetic and despite the late hour worked tirelessly to bring in the various boxes which quickly filled our double garage. It was only after that I realised the enormity of the task ahead to fit it all. However, everything went together just as planned. There was one small issue with a curved door, but a quick email to support resulted in a replacement ordered which arrived in three days. This was not an issue as doors are last to be fitted. The quality of the cabinets and hardware is excellent, and we are really pleased with the finished kitchen. I am also very proud of the results I achieved and the standard of finish, which is ultimately what the quality of the kitchen deserved."
