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.
Take a look at all our kitchen ranges...
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!"
