Harewood Bespoke

Angela from Ripley "Angela from Ripley talks to DIY Kitchens about her new Innova Harewood bespoke painted kitchen that she purchased from us."

Helmsley Bespoke

Teresa from London "Many thanks for the kitchen cabinets, which I love and are even better quality than I had hoped (and my builders have also said they are much better quality than Wickes, Howdens etc). "

Luca Bespoke

Ken from London "Some photos of the kitchen you supplied. Luca Bespoke (F&B - Charleston Gray No. 243)"

Luca Bespoke

Haley from Woking "I'm happy to send you photos of my new kitchen, which I love so much!

The kitchen is a beautiful, rich, Farrow and Ball Hague Blue colour. The quality of the units is excellent, the customer service was also excellent. The soft close give the doors and drawers that extra high quality feel.

The larder is the best decision we made when choosing the units, although the drawers make life so much easier too! Our Hague Blue kitchen is a joy to live in, the whole family is in love with it, even Maggie the Cat! "

Stanbury Bespoke

Ralph from Lymm "I have sent you some before and after photos of our Stanbury kitchen."

Luca Bespoke

Paul from Milton Keynes "Luca Bespoke (F&B Lichen) - Wanted to replace 14 year old units but keeping the Corian work surface. Wickes would not look at the job and Wren tried hard and would price match. Wren does not offer a range of surfaces for the units – the choice was white. I would then have to purchase expensive end panels.

The units were supplied ready assembled by DIY kitchens are of very good quality. The customer service was excellent. A number of queries, mainly concerning corner units, were dealt with quickly.

I went for custom painted handle-less doors, which were a good choice as I managed to pinch a few mm in the corners to overcame a previous problem with the units being too close to a cooker. I did decide to pay for a sample door and received a refund when the door was returned.

Delivery went well with the units arriving in a smaller vehicle enabling the units to be delivered to the front door via a narrow drive. Have no hesitation in recommending DIY Kitchens."

Helmsley Bespoke

Rosie from Tottenham "Here is an image of my newly fitted kitchen purchased from DIY kitchens in June. It's a shaker Innova Helmsley Bespoke painted kitchen. Painted in Amsterdam green by Annie Sloane with antique handles. "

Silsden Bespoke

Milan & Antonia from Northants "Silsden Bespooke Painted (Lichen) - We are very pleased with our new kitchen, pictures attached. A big thank you to the staff at the showrooms, which we visited twice, for helping us to order the units we required, and then helping us re-order when we changed our minds!

All the units are very robust and were easy to fit. Of particular note is the new Dekton worktop which is so unusual and attractive and has drawn admiration from all visitors.

We have recommended DIY Kitchens to anyone who has asked as we are so delighted with the result."

Luca Bespoke

Mark & Eleanor from Milngavie "Here are some photos of our lovely new kitchen for your customer kitchen section.

We are delighted with our Luca Bespoke units. They are of very high quality and the painted finish is beautiful. There was a huge selection of units to choose from on the site so we were able to plan just what we needed. They arrived on time and the builders found them easy to install.

Our bar stools are the 'Nordic' bar stools from Cult Furniture. They're very comfy and in fact we spend almost all of our time sitting on them! "

Harewood Bespoke

Angela from Ripley "Just a quick email to say a big thank you for all the help and support you have provided in enabling us to achieve our dream kitchen. It's been a long process for us having suffered build problems at the beginning of our kitchen extension but now the build is complete it looks simply stunning.

I have attached before and after photographs for your use on your website if you so wish and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend DIY Kitchens to other people and have already done so!

The kitchen we bought was the Harewood Light Grey for the main walls and a bespoke Harewood F&B Colour no.26 Downpipe for the island. The quartz which we purchased through DIY Kitchens was the Blanco Stellar and may I add the company who supplied the quartz also provided an excellent and efficient service."

Linwood Bespoke

Wendy from Wetherby "Linwood Painted (FARROW AND BALL DOVE TALE NO 267). A friend recommended DIY kitchens to me. I made several visits to the showroom and took my time to choose my units and adjust the layout; each time the staff were very helpful.

I chose Linwood Painted in F&B Dove Tale. I had already chosen the granite worktop and was struggling to find units in the right colour to compliment the worktop so it was great to be able to have a bespoke colour. I used extra tall wall units to fit round my new boiler and throughout the kitchen to match, including the dresser units. I chose curved base units for the ends of the dresser to create extra space and character.

The curved base units are made up of two cupboards which I think is a good design both visually and makes the cupboard contents much more accessible than in a single cupboard, especially as mine are 300mm. I have pull out wire baskets in two my other 300mm base units and I find these work really well. Initially I had an angled cornice but changed this to use more of the straight pelmet as I think this gives a more contemporary finish to my kitchen.

I ordered samples of the handles after the units were installed and found it easier to choose when I could see the various handles with my units. I also bought my lovely sink through DIY.

I am delighted with the quality, value for money and look of my new kitchen from DIY. Thank you!!"

Norton Bespoke

David from Anglesey "We did a lot of shopping around before we chose DIY Kitchens, because we wanted high end designer style and durability for our holiday rental cottage, but at a realistic price. We even visited the Pontefract showroom before making our decision, to be sure we were making the right choice. This confirmed that the hardware, fit and finish were as good as anything we’d seen, and we were able to get a bespoke Farrow & Ball painted oak kitchen for the same money as a budget flat-pack kitchen from one of the warehouse sellers - amazing value! Our kitchen fitter (who didn’t know the cost or DIY Kitchens brand) was very complementary about the quality too, and we had no problems at all with installation."

Luca Bespoke

Jane from Stockport "(F&B - Dove Tale No. 267 & Graphite). Really delighted with the kitchen. It is sleek and modern and painted to exactly the colours we were looking for. The planning was straightforward and the customer service staff were a great help."

Langham Painted

Robin from South Cerney "(Langham Painted (F+B GREEN SMOKE NO 47)). We turned to DIY Kitchens based on a fair amount of online research. We needed a new kitchen having re-modelled the downstairs of our holiday home in the Cotswolds ( and we weren't disappointed! Great customer service from pre to post order. Our builder was very impressed by the quality of the units and doors and feedback from our guests so far has been excellent. Thank you!"

Linwood Bespoke

Louise from Cheshire "I have sent in details of our new kitchen fitted by T B Electrics & Home Improvements in Northwich."

Linwood Bespoke

Angela from London "Broadoak Painted (F&B - Elephant's Breath) I love my new Broadoak Painted (F&B Elephant’s Breath No. 229) kitchen. I was having a kitchen-diner extension and knew I wanted something a little different than the typical kitchen colour/design. The ability to choose a completely bespoke colour from the Farrow and Ball range, along with the Second Nature Broadoak quality door led me to choose DIY-Kitchens.

I had previously used DIY-Kitchens in my last property so was confident in the quality of the units and the ease of ordering and delivery, and I was not disappointed this time.

I love the range of unit sizes and designs available too and found it much greater than other highstreet kitchen suppliers. I wanted a long run of tall cabinets with built-in oven, microwave and double larder unit and found DIY-Kitchens had the best options to fit my space perfectly.

The units came ready-built with the doors all pre-fitted, which my installation team were very grateful for. Do not underestimate the amount of space needed to store it all when it arrives though! I had a couple of units dry-assembled to enable my fitters to customise them to the space (I.e. boiler cupboard). The units themselves were very well built and the soft-close hinges and door runners work perfectly.

DIY-Kitchens were great in allowing me to customise the shelf unit to the ideal width required for my space, with only a small surcharge, and it now looks great framed between two wall-mounted wine units.

The worktop is solid walnut (bought separately from a local supplier) and the floor is engineered oak.

I found the 2D graph-paper planner very helpful to plan exactly where everything was going to go and, critically, to work out where the visible sides would be so I knew how many end panels to order. I particularly love the tongue and groove end panels used around the island and think they add that extra bit of class to an already classy kitchen.

In conclusion, I am very pleased with my new kitchen and the customer service at DIY-Kitchens is great – always on hand to answer any questions or help out with that forgotten item.


Broadoak Painted

Colin from Dorset "We're over the moon with our new Broadoak Painted kitchen (Bone). The wide range of units available allowed us to maximise the storage space in our relatively small kitchen. We ordered a couple of the units as Dry Assembled so that we could customise them - one example was to utilise the space above the hob extractor.

Coming back to the kitchen after a holiday where the cottage had a Wickes kitchen made us realise that we had definitely made a good decision. So glad that we included the soft close option for all drawers and doors.

Delivery went without a hitch. The delivery driver kept us informed of their ETA and, despite the fact that they arrived at 10 o'clock at night, it all went without a hitch. The only parts missing were some handle screws and, after a 'phone call, these arrived the next day."

Cornell Painted

Bill from East Sussex " Hello guys, I've just finished fitting the kitchen that I bought from you earlier in the year in my new house in France. I just wanted to tell you how delighted I am with every aspect of your product and service. I'm not a total novice, neither am I a kitchen fitter.... but the kitchen looks absolutely fantastic! The only professional help that I needed was the fitting of the worktops. I've attached a few photos of the kitchen for you to see. "
