Paul & Becky from Norwich "We had a small dark kitchen with a separate dining room and wanted to open it up to create a more spacious, brighter work area. After receiving quotes from builders and a well known high street kitchen manufacturer that were almost as much as the price we paid for the house (albeit 25 years ago), we decided to tackle the job ourselves. We checked out several suppliers and the big DIY warehouses but, after doing a Google search for kitchen suppliers, chose DIY kitchens because of the positive reviews and good choice of styles and colours.

After experimenting with several layouts on the computer (the unit dimensions on the DIY Kitchens website made it easy to create them in Google Sketchup), we ordered all the units and worktops, which arrived just before the lockdown. Not being able to get materials, or specialist trades people like electricians or flooring layers, meant the job took far longer than it would normally have done but we are finally finished (bar a few paint touch-ups etc.).

The odd damaged or missing item on the order was quickly replaced by DIY Kitchens without any quibble, and the fact that the units came ready assembled saved quite a bit of time. An offset of the worktop was used to make a small matching cafe-style table with the addition of a cast metal base - a lovely place to sit and have a coffee while the cakes are baking. The new kitchen has totally transformed our house, and has received ‘Wows’ from all who have seen in. Strangely, one of the most commented on features are the copper effect handles, which are really set off by the anthracite doors and drawer fronts, and were very reasonably priced.

If you are a reasonably competent DIYer we would have no hesitation in recommending that you go to DIY Kitchens. If you’re not comfortable taking the job on yourself, buy the units from DIY Kitchens and get a local fitter/builder in to fit them. Either way you will save a packet and end up with a kitchen to be proud of."

Anthea from Nottingham "We started our plans for a new kitchen around a year ago when we needed to replace our boiler, our then kitchen had been fitted in 2000 and was in need of an uplift, we were keen to involve family in ideas and designs and did a lot of research and we were very inspired about the diy kitchen concept.

We visited the showroom, where the displays and very helpfully staff answered any queries, allowing us to follow our dream of a much improved kitchen but also a wonderful entertaining space, resulting in a stunning sleek and stylish, impactful and very spacious space, where quality stands out.

We made one 20 year old kitchen and a separate playroom into a fabulous space and when lockdown is over, we will be able to hold a party to celebrate its special quality.

Thanks DIY Kitchens for a fabulous service and even if we had minor issues, they were dealt with very quickly and professionally."

Craig & Lisa from Cheshire " We are really happy with our new kitchen! We love it! The quality of the ready made units and the finish of the doors is fantastic and overall it's given us the look of the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge we were after (we had a wall knocked down for this!) We certainly felt like we made a decent saving by using an online kitchen company opposed to a high street giant.

We were told about DIY kitchens by two seperate sets of friends, both had their kitchens from you, they thoroughly recommended them, so we thought we would give it a try and we are so glad we did!

The grid you sent with the pack helped us to work out what we could comfortably fit into our space and this was definitely the bit we were most daunted by! But our builder helped check and double check our choices so that really helped.

We've had loads of nice comments from family and friends and it's completely transformed the way our whole family live (That's Hugo in the pic 2.5 yrs) So a happy family :)"

Lisa from Bristol "We love our kitchen, the colour is amazing and the quality of the doors are really good. The customer service has been fantastic and would highly recommend DIY Kitchens. We heard about DIY Kitchens from our kitchen fitter when we were planning our kitchen. The whole process was very smooth, easy to plan and saved us a significant amount of money compared to others. "

Luca Carbon

Brent & Tina from Tamworth "We were very impressed with the value for money of diy kitchens units and doors taking into account the quality of them which is better than the majority of the competition.

We found the units to be very sturdy with good quality fittings for doors, drawers and drawer runners. Having carried out our kitchen refurbishment entirely by ourselves we found the amount of different adjustments available for door, drawer and unit alignment was excellent.

As can be seen from the before and after photos, we were after a very specific look for our new kitchen and the amount of colours and styles available meant that we got exactly what we wanted. Overall very very pleased with our new kitchen."

Yvonne from Elsenham "We have built a new house and I had been arranging quotes for a complete kitchen with all new appliances. It was a friend who told me about you and I followed you on Instagram and decided to give you a chance at quoting. I was amazed at the saving compared to other companies and I found the whole process very easy. The staff are very helpful and made me feel confident about buying from you.

When it arrived I was so pleased with the quality. Everything we ordered fitted too.

Here are some pics of the finished kitchen. We chose the Stanbury in Grey & Carbon. Everyone compliments us when they see it so thank you very much!"

Rachel from London "Here are photos of my finshed kitchen, pre starting and during the building work as well. The new kitchen was fitted into our brand new extension.

I love our new kitchen. The variety and options available - tailorable - meant that I could order the right kitchen for us without having the flex to a limited range.

The quality of the product is fantastic. I love the finish inside and out. It looks fantastic and is really practical to use. The set up hides the details with built in bins etc and enables us to maximise the space through use of racks and a magic corner."

Robbie from Sunderland "Pictures of the completed Luca matt carbon kitchen. Many Thanks."

Charles & Dean from London "We are over the moon about our DIY Kitchen - Great customer service and fantastic quality. We enjoyed being fully in charge of the design and being able to choose every last detail to suit our needs."

Marta from Sussex "We came to DIY Kitchens following friends’ recommendations and we could not be happier. Delivery was prompt, the quality of the kitchen is impeccable and the after-sales support was great too. We wanted a bespoke colour originally but after seeing the set colours in the showroom, we managed to find a combination that matched our preferences perfectly. Would highly recommend. "

Mary from Bingley "Here are some photos of the kitchen we bought from you last year. It isn't finished but looking pretty good. It was fitted as part of our new build which again isn't finished yet!

Having used the kitchen for nearly a year now I am generally very pleased with it. I really like the big deep draws and the smaller concealed drawers for the cutlery. I am also a big fan of the large larder unit with drawers, we fit so much food in there and it is really easy to access.

The Le Mans corner units are also great storage solutions, I have all my big pans and frying pans stashed neatly away and can get at them in an instant! All the cupboards arrived built which was a great time saver , we had a couple of issues with marked doors but they were resolved quickly by customer services. The doors have withstood a year of family life with no major marks or scuffs and I am confident they will continue to do so, the paint seems to be pretty hard-wearing and easy to clean.

I chose matt, handleless doors because I liked the streamlined look of them and thought they would be easy to keep clean. In retrospect I think I would have chosen handles or knobs, it seems every family member has to open/close the doors in a different place and the big doors especially have continual hand marks on them no matter how much I clean! At least with a knob or handle everyone is touching the same bit. That said, it is a minor gripe. Everyone who has visited has admired the kitchen and says it certainly has the wow factor. We have recommended DIY kitchens to several people since purchasing ours, for quality, choice and great value for money! Thank you."
