Helmsley Bespoke

Ross from Crackington Haven "Helmsley Bespoke (F&B - Pale Powder No. 204 & F&B - Stiffkey Blue No. 281)

Really impressed with the the kitchen construction, especially small details like the carcass feet, that are high quality. Being able to choose our own colour made it that little bit more special. We wanted a framed kitchen at a reasonable cost and got it through DIY Kitchens."

Harewood Bespoke

Chris from Wokingham "Harewood Bespoke (F&B - Brinjal No. 222 & Skimming Stone No. 241)

Dear Diy Kitchens, these pictures are for your my kitchens section, to say thanks. We are very impressed with the quality of the kitchen and after 6 months of family use it is holding up well. No chips in the paint or issues with the doors or carcasses.

I am very please with the soft close draws, and high sides for the pan draws which are a great feature.

The ability to specify custom farrow and ball colours was a great bonus, and allowed us to use their colour pallets to match up the wall paint as well.

I have attached several photos, no cute pet unfortunately. (The rabbits are not going on the worktop!)"

Norton Bespoke

Sarah from Surrey "Norton Bespoke (Farrow & Ball Cornforth White).

Please find attached some images of our recently fitted kitchen. I have been really pleased with the quality of the kitchen in relation to the price. It looks great and everyone that has seen it thinks it cost twice the price I paid for it! The solid nickel handles bought from the US help to make it look amazing too! I heard about DIY-kitchens from my architect who had a client that had one fitted.

Worktop: Lagoon quartz 30mm Worktop"

Helmsley Bespoke

Jodi from London "(Farrow & Ball Hardwick White and Strong White). I was incredibly impressed (and relieved!) when the kitchen units arrived. I bought online without a visit to the showroom, although I had trawled the internet high and low for reviews and photos of customers experiences of DIY Kitchens. I ordered the Helmsley Bespoke Painted Kitchen in 2 different colours- Farrow & Ball Hardwick White and Strong White. Having opted for platinum service delivery, the units arrived on the nominated day and were extremely well packaged. Even my kitchen fitters commented that they had never seen kitchen units so well protected before. As soon as the units were unwrapped I knew that I had made the right choice. The quality of the cabinets is amazing and I now feel like I have a kitchen that competes with (or is better than!) some of those overpriced high street kitchen retailers.

Putting the kitchen together on paper was all consuming....but I loved it. We wanted to retain our hob, sink and 2 existing worktops, which meant that I needed numerous unit sizing options to ensure I could put together an attractive yet practical run of units that would fit perfectly under our existing worktop measurements. This is really where DIY Kitchens comes into its own. So many size and range choices. Even better was the ability to play around with different configurations and having transparent pricing. I could know within an instant whether a particular configuration was going to cost too much money, rather than waiting for a kitchen planner to come up with a "magic number" that I would have no idea how it was arrived at or what to do about it if it was too expensive for our budget.

I also wanted a particular type of cornicing and square chamfered pilasters that aren't widely available (and were not available from DIY Kitchens at the time of ordering either). I sourced those items elsewhere and had them sprayed in my bespoke F&B colours to match. Easy. It all came together seamlessly.

We are delighted with our kitchen which has been operational for the last 3 months. Now all I have to do is stop bragging about how "cheap" it was!"

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

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. "

Cornell Painted

Anna from Surrey "The oak doors have a Gothic arch to reflect our gothic Windows. The whole effect is just how I imagined. The service was superb even making a special door to fit an awkward space. They sent a fitter for this door at no extra cost as our fitter had finished. The original fitter was extremely impressed with the quality of the doors and cupboards and we were also impressed by the cost. I would thoroughly recommend DIY kitchens. "

Broadoak Painted

Berit from Sydenham "Our finished F&B - Manor House Gray No. 265 kitchen from you."

Broadoak Painted

Louis from Storrington "Broadoak Painted (F&B purbeck stone No.275) - I have left it more than 10 months after ordering to write this review to ensure that I give a fair and informed review. Like many, I was somewhat concerned about ordering ?Unseen? but having ordered a door and reading independent reviews we took advantage of one of the 10% off deals to order.

Planning was the hard bit, ordering was easy with everything going smoothly. I had a call within a day of ordering to talk through the order to make sure that I had everything. I ordered the platinum service with a small van supplement as I live down a single track lane - all the units came extremely well packed and on unpacking a few weeks later, there were no problems.

Installation was very quick using my own tradesmen and they commented on the quality of the kitchen - I would echo it. After 9 months of use, everything is still working perfectly and the finish has stood the test of three dogs and teenage children. All hinges, opening, soft closes etc still operate flawlessly. The units colour match (Broadoak Painted in F&B 275 Purbeck Stone) was excellent. I made a mistake on the order (not enough kick-board to avoid a join) and it took a few weeks to come though as it was a bespoke painted finish.

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend the kitchen and supplier - excellent product, excellent service and excellent price."

Langham Painted

David from Grantham "Langham Painted (F&B Skimming Stone No. 241). Here are pictures of my completed kitchen"

Broadoak Painted

Adam from Stortford "(Broadoak Painted F&B Light Blue and F&B All White) We are extremely pleased with the overall quality of the kitchen units and doors. We opted for the Broadoak Bespoke Painted Kitchen in F&B Light Blue and F&B All White. Ordering was easy and it made such a difference having the kitchen arrive fully assembled including all of the drawers, door fronts and pull out larder and corner units installed already.

Langham Painted

Sue from Surrey "Langham Painted (Farrow & Ball Old White No.4)

The units are very well finished and the carcasses are strong. I have kept the integrated doors for when my white goods need replacing which will complete the overall look.

I am very happy with my kitchen that looks good and will last. I wouldn't have been able to afford such a quality of kitchen with bespoke painted wooden doors if I hadn't gone to DIY Kitchens.

The customer service team were excellent and helped out throughout the process of ordering. "

Broadoak Painted

Vanessa from London "Broadoak Painted (Pitch Black) I'm chuffed to bits with my new kitchen and I'm really impressed with the quality of it. Really nice finish on the units, very sturdy and solid, smooth running drawers and soft close hinges - and all works perfectly.

The service was great too; I rang the sales office a few times to ask for advice on various things and they were always extremely helpful. Everything was delivered as promised, without any problems.


Cornell Painted

June from Cheshire "Cornell Painted (Ultima Stone Grey) Here are the photos, hope you like them, we love the kitchen!"

Milton Painted

Steven & Laura from Watlington "Overall impression of the kitchen, quality of doors, units & worktops etc: We were very impressed by the quality and value of the units, but especially loved the flexibility and choice of colours which allowed us to create a two tone effect with the base and wall units, and also the contrasting interior for the glass door wall units"
