Malton Oak

Sara from York "I would like to send you some photos of our wonderful new kitchen.

We love the quality of the wood veneer. It has a lovely feel and is really pleasing to the eye. So much more than the wooden effect laminate kitchens sold by your competitors! It is extremely sturdy and the soft close features are really effective. The range of unit sizes meant we could have exactly the kitchen we wanted. We are over the moon with it, thank you."

Malton Oak

Dr Bartoli from Harrow "We are extremely happy with the final result. The new kitchen, a sort of galley kitchen (4m long and 2.5m wide) is in sage green, pinewood knobs and a very low maintenance laminate worktop in oak colour that goes perfectly with the cabinets. The old kitchen now family room has the same style of furniture but in oak finish and antique bronze knobs. We also turned the lower part of one of the pantry units into a little wardrobe for daily use. The utility room was a big problem because the external wall is at an angle: we needed to have it covered with cupboards which needed to be made to measure. A carpenter made the carcass and we bought the same sage green doors of the kitchen with soft hinges and look perfect, while on the other side we fitted some extra cabinets (wall and base cabinets), a sink and the same oak worktop. We also managed to put two old chests of drawers that give a more elegant touch to it all. Its wonderful for storing all the things that were hanging around the house and with an easy-care worktop and sink we have space for hobbies and gardening without having to interfere with the kitchen itself. Its tidy and much more elegant than a normal utility room; with some strategic trompe-loeil we managed to make it look wider too.

The furniture looks very good and everyone who comes compliments us. It is also solid and so easy to clean and maintain. We particularly like the way the drawers close: with just a little touch they go all the way in by themselves, even the large ones with heavy saucepans inside. We also appreciated very much the flexibility and versatility of the options that allowed us to create three different rooms with very different purposes and looks, while maintaining a harmonic continuity. And of course: the price! Especially thinking of the products we saw in some shops, which looked so-so and for which they asked a fortune, we are very aware we made the right choice. We also need to thank the staff who was very patient and kind; they helped us with the many questions we had, because we were not familiar with the process."

Donna from Essex "Having received a quote from a local (not overly-expensive) company that took up our entire budget just for the units, leaving us nothing for installation or equipment, we scoured the internet and found DIY Kitchens. Overall, we are absolutely delighted with our kitchen, the quality is excellent, with a huge range of options, and the builders were extremely impressed that the units arrived already constructed. A few niggles and careless omissions which were a pain at the time (especially coming at the end of a long re-build), but they were quickly rectified. We would certainly use DIY Kitchens again."

Mike from Farnborough "We are very pleased with our kitchen, the quality and finishing of the cabinets and doors is equitable to many kitchens we viewed at twice and three time the price.

The ordering, processing, manufacture and the worktop fitting services were all as described and very quick and professionally completed."

Jon from Herts "Overall a fantastic product. The units were already assembled and easy to install. The quality of both the carcass and doors are superb. Drawer fittings are all absolutely fine, and the kitchen as a whole is by far the best value we have been able to find. The box of tea bags was a particularly nice touch!! We couldn't be happier with our purchase! "

Malton Oak

Ann from Glasgow "Please find attached the photos of my new kitchen as I noticed that your customer area currently only has 2 Malton Oak kitchens available to view.

The quality of the units and doors was excellent and them arriving built with doors already on made them so easy to fit it took half the time my fitter quoted for, he was so impressed with the quality of the build he has since ordered a new kitchen from diy kitchens himself. No one can believe how much the project cost given the quality.

I found the planning tools on the website very helpful allowing me to design a kitchen which fitted my needs and looked great to.
I had a few little scratches on the doors but your team had that sorted out in no time and it didn't hold up the installation, in fact all of the support tickets were dealt with quickly and efficiently.

My Worktops were Duropal laminate crystal black, the quality was high and they completed the look of the kitchen.

I couldn't be happier with the end result and love my new kitchen, I wouldn't go anywhere else now and have recommended Diy kitchens to friends and colleagues as the overall experience from start to finish was second to none.

Thank you for making a high stress project as easy as possible. "

Emma from Hampshire "The quality of the kitchen is excellent, even the guys who installed it were very impressed! It looks great and functions perfectly and everyone who has seen it loves it. I compared it to DIY store kitchens and the price like for like was about 2000 cheaper without compromising on quality in any way.

I hear about DIY kitchens through a friend who had just installed one of your kitchens otherwise I would never have known about you. You should advertise more! "

Hayley from Lancs "We was really impressed with the overall customer service and quality of our kitchen from DIY kitchens. Upon ordering the kitchen I had problems with my computer which messed up the order and DIY kitchens where extremely helpful in helping me rectify the issues. The kitchen arrived on time and the delivery people were also very friendly.

We ordered the Milbourne Alabaster shaker and upon looking at the kitchen we was very impressed with the quality of the units, solid doors and carcasses. It definitely fitted in with everything the website had promised. The fitter even complimented this and told me that he was sure to recommend DIY kitchens within his line of work for future use.

As you can by the photo it has turned out perfectly. Everything down to the smallest details we are extremely happy with. Its my dream kitchen!

I was recommended DIY kitchens via a friend and ill be sure to have these friends over for a dinner party in my swanky new kitchen!! "
