Malton Painted Dakar

Charlotte from Oxon "Charlotte from Oxon talks to DIY Kitchens about her new Innova Malton painted kitchen that she purchased from us."

Linwood Sage

Rose & John from Cheshire "We started our new kitchen nearly 12 months ago when we decided to partially remove a supporting wall between the kitchen and lounge. There was however a planned “time out” between May and November and apart from the building work and connection of the gas hob, everything else has been a DIY project.

After a number of internet searches we were impressed by the positive reviews of diykitchens and planned our showroom visit. We have to say that we were impressed by both the showroom and support that we were given. The area where the “internal functions” of units was on display was particularly helpful. We then placed our 2 orders which were split into separate deliveries for logistical reasons (a lot of space is needed to store ready assembled units especially when the garage also has to function as a workshop!)

The deliveries arrived on time, (communication at all times was excellent) and the protection/packaging was impressive. The number of fitting accessories, touch up paint etc was faultless and the tea and biscuits for the kitchen fitter (me!!!) was a lovely touch.

We have to say that we are delighted with the finished result. The finish on the units is excellent and the quality of the internal components is of a very high standard (Corner units carry cast iron casseroles with no problem whatsoever and the larder units hold an enormous amount!). We are particularly impressed with the 600mm highline pull out bin unit which is ideal for both waste disposal and recycling. We would have no hesitation in recommending diykitchens to anyone!

Please find attached photos of the finished project, including one of our cockapoo Jennings who is also happy to spend his time in there! "

Benedict from Warwickshire "Here are a number of photos of the final kitchen installation. Thank you for all your help back in July. "

Helmsley Mussel

Yvette from Mansfield "Here are photographs of my finished 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."

Bedale Mussel

Catriona from Edinburgh "I've attached 3 photos of my kitchen."

Clayton Mussel

Tracy from Selby "Here are some photos of the completed kitchen."

Stanbury Mussel

Ruth from Norfolk "Stanbury Mussel kitchen with oak worktop. We're so pleased with your kitchen and have had many compliments on it. We chose diy-kitchens because:

  • They are high quality kitchens at a fantastic prices
  • There is a huge range of colours and styles
  • You can design the kitchen yourself and see the price of each of the units, putting us in control of the overall price.
I found the real kitchen photos on the website great for getting ideas. We did briefly pop in to the showroom whilst passing on the A1 but still would have ordered without this visit because of the samples service and great reviews."

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."

Harewood Dakar

David from Wolviston "(Harewood Dakar and Oak) - Would we use DIY Kitchens again? A definite yes. We found DIY Kitchens whilst searching online for alternatives to the usual high Street retailers.

Having had a few quotes, and then comparing against DIY Kitchens, it was obvious that their prices were very competitive. What we liked was being able to price alternative kitchen styles and designs to see how these fitted our budget, without having to spend hours in kitchen showrooms!

We visited their showroom twice. If you can get there, I would recommend it. We used the sample door service which was great for checking colours, they can look quite different in different lighting.

Ordering was very straightforward. Being able to amend the order upto the cutoff time was really useful as we added some additional units just before the cutoff without a problem.

Delivery was via the two man delivery and everything was very well packaged. I would recommend the two man delivery unless you have a few strong people to hand.

With being fully assembled the units can be heavy. We used the online support both before and after ordering and this was very straightforward.

We are really pleased with the final kitchen and quality of all the units. Being fully assembled saves a lot of time and really adds to quality of the final installation, especially if to you choose to fit yourself as we did. "

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!

Luca Sage

Sue from Bolton "My new diy kitchen. Bought the units back in April. Bought the handleless Luca sage green. Work top quartz brilliant white (bought and installed locally). Flooring from Harvey Maria "

Clayton Mussel

Becci & Ben from Leeds "We are really pleased with the quality and service from diy-kitchens. Visiting the showroom was very helpful. Online ordering was simple and the final product looks amazing. Thank you. "

Clayton Mussel

Maureen from Tywyn "We were very impressed with our kitchen. Delivery was on time and all items were very well protected. The quality of the units, worktops, doors and fittings was excellent. We only had one problem which was the length of the door handle screws which were too short. However, replacements arrived the following day.

We enjoyed the tea and biscuits, what a nice touch. They came in very handy when installing our kitchen.

It appears that a lot of time and effort has gone into the product and service that you offer and I would have no qualms with recommending you to others.

We found out about you on line. You were the only company that we found that manufactures the 300 deep tall larder cupboards and the angled cupboard which solved a big problem for us. "

Linwood Mussel

Jannette from Gornal Wood "Here are photos of my completed kitchen which is fabulous. We used your company after my husband was told about you by a work colleague.

The units are fantastic quality, we had Linwood in Mussel, the quality is so much better than other brands we saw (and believe me, we spent two years going round looking at them!), the quality of the wood on the doors is so much better as it's made from hardwood rather than MDF.

We looked online and used the brilliant 360 degree tour then took a trip up to the showroom (I would recommend doing this if you are uncertain because not only are the staff very helpful and friendly, you can see the great quality in person (and there are free refreshments too!).

We then planned it out at home and although we could have done it online at home, decided to go back to the showroom to do place the order in case we got any problems and again, the staff, especially Brian, were excellent. We had to use customer services a couple of times, and they were very helpful, special mention and thanks to Alice and Jonathan.

They gave us a delivery date, and keep in touch with you, and delivered exactly when they promised. Everything comes ready assembled so you only have to fit them, it couldn't be easier!

As you can see from the photos, I have the most beautiful kitchen I could have hoped for and for a fraction of the price it would have cost me anywhere else. My friends have been round and commented on how lovely it is, and one of them has just had hers done, in an identical design, but as she commented, hers isn't hardwood, and it cost three times as much as what we paid, so that reconfirmed our faith not only in the quality but the fantastic value for money.

Thank you DIY Kitchens"

Luca Mussel

Helen from Halkirk "I have now bought 3 kitchens from you and they have all been designed by myself and fitted by my husband and myself as keen DIY enthusiasts.

I'm absolutely delighted once again with the standard of goods and service received. These units were used in a utility room this time and I would highly recommend them.

Beautiful finished and it's so reassuring that I can get exactly what I order and it makes a renovation project so much easier. I love refurbishing kitchens and I’m looking for another project so that I can submit the pictures for 'Kitchen 4'!"

Silsden Mussel

Keith from Cumbria "Units are nice and sturdy. Appreciated the flexibility of your ordering system that allowed us, for example, to keep our old cabinet handles and worktop. Kitchen looks as though it cost four times the price. "

Stanbury Dakar

Sarah from Gosport "This is my 2nd kitchen from you. My husband is a builder and highly recommends your kitchens to everyone. He rates them high above Howdens and Magnet, all of which he's fitted. Also your customer service is brilliant. "

Malton Mussel

Mat from Doncaster "I am extremely pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of the kitchen. Being a bit of a perfectionist I do have annoyingly high standards and DIY Kitchen ticked all the boxes at every stage. From the helpful and experienced staff in the showroom to the build quality of the kitchen, I was impressed with the service and am even more impressed with my final result in the kitchen. Now it is time to enjoy it : )

Many thanks all at DIY Kitchens."
