Mat from Lichfield 'The kitchen is extremely good quality and I will definitely be ordering again when we move to onto to the next house. I fitted it myself and I'm a carpenter. The general quality of the finish is also very good. Worktops were very easy to work with and there was next to no chipping when cutting.
I Googled kitchen units and have used better kitchens before. Your units are definitely of a higher quality and actually came out with a great saving. Using DIY Kitchens saved me around £2000 overall. A lot of the money was saved on worktops, as they're a great price.'
Nigel from Berkshire 'After looking at many kitchen suppliers, styles and colours and being a Carpenter, I’ve come across many including DIY Kitchens. We chose DIY Kitchens (Malton Range in sage green and mussel) because of price, style, colour and the variations of unit sizes and accessories. Fortunately I was able to design the kitchen myself with the help of the superb website. The whole process was made very simple. We couldn’t be more pleased with the end result and the quality is superb. '
Nicole from Kent 'Really pleased with our DIY kitchen - it's exceeded our expectations. Wasn't aware of you until a salesperson at a well known high end retailer of bespoke furniture, kitchen and home decor mentioned your name on the sly during a casual conversation! I compared your prices to kitchen designs from Wren, IKEA, Howdens and a local bespoke manufacturer, and you offered the best value for money by far. The craftsmanship, customer service and style of our kitchen has been second to none, and we'll be getting another DIY Kitchen if an when we move in the future!'
Sharon from Nottingham 'I love the style and quality of my new kitchen. Saved thousands on like for like quotes.'
Stephanie from London 'Absolutely in love with my DIY Kitchen, after going to several other kitchen providers I wasn't getting the final look that I wanted to achieve within my budget. I was doing a big renovation and had big ideas! I got a custom colour and can say that it was absolutely worth it, I got a few door samples and went with the Stanbury, the quality is great and matches that of all of the other kitchen places that I went to.
I loved that I could customise my cupboards, the sizes, the fittings, the internals and the pull out bin is a game changer! Everything is high spec & quality, soft close, finish is all great and I'm super happy.
For the specification and deciding to have a bespoke colour I made substantial saving v other suppliers & my builder found it easy to fit as has gone on to recommend to his other customers.
I actually heard about DIY Kitchens after seeing their delivery lorry at a neighbour, so took a look! Will definitely use you again if I do another kitchen.'
Stu and Michelle from Teesside 'We heard about DIY Kitchens through social media, so we had a look and we’re really impressed with the range available. We had quotations done from some of the larger kitchen companies but were not impressed with the service we received or the prices they quoted, so decided we could do a better job ourselves.
DIY kitchens means you can plan exactly what you want for your kitchen. We visited the showrooms and were really impressed with the quality of the units and worktops. We found the shaker style we wanted in the exact dark blue. Having decided on the style we planned it out and we’re very surprised with the cost.
We saved so much on the cost of the other kitchen quotes that we could upgrade to quartz worktops and oak workbench for the breakfast bar and still had money left over to upgrade appliances. We also built a shoe bench in the hall using the same units and oak worktop.
We used the help team on a few occasions during the planning process for advice and they were quick to respond and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great experience and have recommended to friends who are at the start of their kitchen renovations. We cannot fault this company and if you don’t believe us then go visit their showroom.
Stu was really impressed with the free drinks and biscuits available and it meant we could browse the range for longer as he was fed.'
Kerri from Coventry 'I ordered my kitchen in October last year and my partner fitted it. He said it was super easy and really enjoyed fitting it! I love the pantry in particular, there is just so much space and with a baby on the way we really need it! We heard about DIY from a friend who has bought his kitchen from there. Overall using DIY saved me £1,000, compared to using a Howdens type kitchen, which was not as good quality or design, as the kitchen we purchased! '
Rachel & Nick from Somerset 'We have installed two DIY kitchens this year! The first was a small Luca White Gloss kitchen which we installed in an outbuilding to use whilst renovation building work was carried out for our main kitchen. We originally heard about DIY kitchens from a niece who could not praise them enough.
We decided that buying the small kitchen first served two purposes - the price was so reasonable that it meant we didn't have to go without a kitchen whilst our work was being done and we could try DIY Kitchens for quality and customer service before committing to buying our main kitchen.
We were very pleased with our lovely little kitchen, the quality was excellent and the customer service team was very helpful so we didn't hesitate to then start planning our main kitchen.
Whilst it took us a long time to reach our final plan, we really enjoyed designing it. Originally we had gone to other kitchen companies but were put off not only by prices but also the pressure to design and agree a kitchen in just a few hours. It was much better to be able to try things out and move them about in our own time, and the 3d images were really helpful.
We also loved the extras that weren't available elsewhere such as the wicker basket unit (which everyone comments on) and curved doors.
The icing on the cake was the amazing prices which meant we could afford wooden doors (Norton Cobham blue and and Dove Grey) and buy ourselves a bespoke fridge freezer that we originally thought would push us over our budget. We still ended up spending less than our other kitchen quotes.
It was quite a big kitchen but we only had one minor issue which was sorted immediately by the Customer service team. Everybody who has seen our kitchens can't believe the quality and the price we paid.'
Tracy from Sheffield 'I heard about DIY Kitchens by word of mouth. This was a kitchen refresh, so, new doors, sink, tap, corner unit were from DIY kitchens. I had a couple of issues which was rectified quickly amd the quality of the units are very good and sturdy.'
Tessa from Cambridgeshire 'I was recommended DIY kitchens from a family member. I had recently had an extension to my kitchen/dining area and was looking to get some storage cupboards with a small worktop area.
What I found really useful was the online planner where I could put in the dimensions and then add in the units that I wanted, selecting the relevant widths to fit the space, then moving things around until I was happy. I am so pleased with the overall look, quality and price that I've sinced used DIY kitchens again for the replacement doors needed for the rest of my kitchen area, and so they will match my new units perfectly!'
Emily from Cambridgeshire 'Brilliant quality kitchen units. Had exactly the colour green we were after - and we were picky! Just couldn’t understand why we would pay more for other kitchens where the quality was either comparable or poorer. Support from customer services has been great from start to finish! Have recommended DIY Kitchens to everyone!
We got the units from DIY Kitchens, the handles and worktop from elsewhere. Really helped to make it our own and no pressure to take everything from DIY Kitchens. My sister and my in laws have DIY Kitchens - plus they live just down the road from the Pontefract showroom!
Definitely made a saving! Our units were at least 50% less than the competitors (Wren) for our kitchen and our utility.'
Daniela from Ealing 'One of my builders recommended DIY Kitchens, as he bought one himself and was very happy with it, so I opted for a shaker style for my Victorian home.
The previous kitchen was a lot smaller and the room layout was completely different. As we are not designers, we were a bit nervous about this, however being able to see the room on the 3D planner really helped to see how the space could be used. We spent a long time trying different layouts and envisaging using the space to make sure the layout would be practical and homely. Because we could so easily play around on the 3D planner, and also save and compare various layouts. In the end we were able to come up with a layout that we liked better than previous designs we had been given from other companies and it worked out a lot cheaper.
We wanted wood because the previous kitchen was also wood it lasted forever and could easily be painted to update the look. The doors feel very solid and high quality. We had a lot of feedback on the kitchen and the quality. Really glad we spent extra to get as many drawers as possible because they are super useful and easier to access.
When the kitchen was finished it looked much better than we could have ever imagined and the look and feel of the wood and quartz gives it a sturdiness and elegance. The carpenter who made the built-in cupboard above the washing machine was amazed at the quality. Wish we had done it sooner!'
Gavin from Solihull 'We are extremely happy with our kitchen; the quality is very high. We selected a shaker kitchen with Clayton sage doors. Our kitchen is in a dark spot of our house with limited natural light and yet because the kitchen units are so light and fresh, it gives the kitchen a lighter, brighter feel.
We particularly like that the insides of the kitchen units, they are a high quality wood effect, which fits into our overall design given our flooring and table are also wood effect. Our kitchen fitter commented that the quality was excellent and how he had no concerns or issues when fitting it.
We purchased a Belfast sink, to compliment the shaker kitchen, the tap and the door handles from DIY kitchens, all of which we are extremely happy with and feel they look great with the kitchen. When purchasing the kitchen we found the online help very useful, everyone we conversed with were happy and helpful, from the initial design through to the delivery drivers. We subsequently had to purchase additional door handles and did this with ease and without additional unnecessary delivery costs.
We were also very pleased with the wait time for the kitchen which was only 5 weeks including the Christmas break in that time period. Most other kitchen suppliers had given us considerably longer wait periods.
The kitchen is perfect for our family. We have a 21 month old daughter who loves to run around the island with different push along toys (a shopping trolley, a pram etc) and she has been unable to damage any of the units despite several crashes and bashes. This has given us confidence that the kitchen will last without any damage for years to come. Now we have the perfect kitchen we are happy to host get togethers and we get nothing but compliments from family and friends who visit.
I am so happy with the kitchen that is it my favourite room in my house and is the perfect family room for us. I would highly recommend DIY kitchens to anyone who is looking to purchase a new kitchen.
A friend of ours had recently bought from DIY Kitchens and highly recommended them. Our friend invited us to her house to look around their kitchen and we were impressed with the quality and look of her kitchen.
The kitchen was considerably cheaper than our quotes from other kitchen suppliers. DIY Kitchens don’t have lots of show rooms full of salespeople so have considerably lower overheads which makes them cheaper without compromising on quality.'
Rachel from Surrey 'Here are the photos of my amazing kitchen!! We chose Stanbury Mussel with Calacatta Dusk Quartz worktops and splashbacks. The worktops picked up the colours in the doors and the floor beautifully, we have had many comments on how stunning it looks!!
Wow!!!! what a transformation, we are totally delighted with it!!! The quality is amazing and due to your astoundingly reasonable prices, we were able to have quartz worktops, which we never ever dreamt we could have!!
The support we got from the planning stage right through to ordering was just great. We have already recommended you to many of our friends.
Thank you so much for making it possible to have the kitchen of our dreams, totally thrilled !!!'
Jacqueline from Doncaster 'I found your company online and decided to visit your showroom. This was a big mistake as after looking round, I had to buy. I went straight home and measured and planned my kitchen, I've never done this before, so I was very nervous but I checked and checked again.
I didn't realise that I could fit as many units and drawers that I did, as my kitchen is only a galley kitchen and I didn't want any wall cupboards, to make it look bigger. I used every bit of space that I could. There is a vast choice of designs and colours but I went for the Malton range in alabaster colour with the walnut sangha wenge - worktop, and cup handles and knobs in polished nickel.
The whole kitchen cost me around £2700 including delivery plus an extra £100 for a smaller vehicle because of where I live. The day the kitchen arrived, the units and drawers were already built, wow. I would never have believed that all these units and drawers would fit into my kitchen, but they did. They are of very good quality and even my joiner said these are a good quality, and the colour was perfect.
I love everything about my kitchen, it is exactly how I wanted it to be. The customer service team were amazing helping me with any questions I had.
On in all I'm very happy with my purchase great quality looks amazing and easy to install and would highly recommend this company as I already have done to friends and family.'
Nicki from Stoke on Trent 'Here are some photos of my finished project, in a Welsh Miner's cottage. Very happy with the end result and would definitely recommend.'
Catherine from London '"Very happy with the quality of the kitchen for the price. I Heard about DIY Kitchens from a family member. We didn't make a saving as such but we were able to get a solid wood kitchen in the colour we wanted for the same price we were quoted for the basic mdf range at another brand which only came in very limited colours."'
Michelle from Barnsley '"I had a comparison quote from Magnet of £25k reduced to 12k by them. Paid less than £4 from DIY Kitchens. Asked friends on Facebook who to use due to above silly quote & was recommended to you by a work colleague. Thrilled with the overall finish, easy to fit & have had many complements! I love my kitchen."'
Alex from Orpington '"I'm really pleased with the whole process from design, ordering, help and guidance from the DIY Kitchens team, right through to delivery. The quality of the cabinets, worktop down to the handles and hinges are great, the options that were available to suit the needs of what I was after, were brilliant. I am so pleased with how my kitchen renovation went and the transformation that was made! I ended up saving around £5000 on my kitchen thanks to DIY Kitchens." '
Carly from Chester '"The quality of the kitchen is super, I am so happy with the finished look. I heard about DIY Kitchens after seeing a kitchen transformation in a home inspiration magazine, and I knew it was the exact look I was hoping to achieve. The doors have already taken a few knocks (due to having children at home) but still look as good as the day they were installed! I did take a look at other kitchen brands, but nothing came close to the quality and price of DIY Kitchens. I was actually quite dubious about the quality when I looked at the price, figuring ‘you get what you pay for’. Happy to repot that’s not the case here!"'
Heather from Swansea '"Here are some pictures of our recently installed shaker kitchen. We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen. As you can see, we had some interesting spaces to contend with, and the way DIY Kitchens allows you to order separate doors and cupboards, allowed us to create a very intricate corner unit, which would’ve cost us a fortune otherwise. We were particularly delighted with the bin cupboard, as that is now taking away all the mess in the kitchen. The kitchen is small but we managed to create an open plan space with an island that could provide additional storage space underneath. The quality of the kitchen is excellent and will hopefully last for many years."'
Mathew from North Wales '"The kitchen is really well built and easy to fit. Well impressed with the quality, simplicity and ease of fitment. Top top quality for a really good price. I heard about DIY kitchen from a family member. The delivery team were really good and helpful. All in all, a really good product, support and delivery team. Will defiantly use again."'
Lynda from East Yorkshire 'Here is my DIY kitchen, which I love. It is a very tiny galley kitchen, but I have maximised the space as best as I could, and have incorporated, drawers, pull out storage, and slide out bins. I even managed to get a larder unit and a broom cupboard in, after removing a door frame and a section of wall.
The range of sizes and styles was amazing. I found your 300mm base units ideal, as I have cupboard space both sides, which none of the other houses in the terrace have. My builder/kitchen fitter was very impressed with quality and build of the units, he even got his boss to come and have a look at them.
I have found your customer service team very helpful, before and after delivery. I would highly recommend your company.'
Andrew from South Lanarkshire 'Here are some images of my kitchen that I bought from you. I saved about 60% from another quote given to me. I heard of you via a friend who works in the building trade. The kitchen I now have is excellent quality and very good value for money.'
Jenny and Richard from Kent 'Our daughter has a DIY Kitchen in Gloucestershire, which we like, so after getting a quote from a local company, which was too high on top of the building work, we made the decision to go with your Norton bespoke range, and chose two bespoke colours. We’re thrilled with the results - a high quality, functional and practical kitchen at a good price. It has been much admired by friends who have seen it, even though we haven’t yet put up blinds and pictures!
We like wide pull out drawers, and have gone for the glass sides - all our crockery fits in one of these - and also the narrow pullouts, which are great for all the herbs and spices. The pull out larder unit and integrated fridge, and dishwasher make everything look streamlined. '
Tanya from Woking 'I was first introduced to DIY Kitchens by a friend and then it dominated my Instagram searches. I loved the cashmere colour units and am so happy with the final finish. It came in at a fraction of the cost of other brands, and with the DIY planner, I was able to adapt the plans to get exactly what I wanted, including my little pull out condiment unit, built in bin, pan cupboard and corner units. I love it. '
Mick & Elaine from Wakefield 'We first heard about DIY Kitchens through recommendations from friends. In fact our kitchen fitter preferred fitting them and recommended them for build quality and finish. The prices beat the competition from Wrens and Howdens and we loved the heron grey/dove grey combination in the showroom.
The online planning tool was great and the support with our queries was excellent. We are very pleased with the finished result.'
Kemi from Northamptonshire 'We heard about DIY Kitchens from our kitchen fitter who spoke highly of the quality and the great customer service. We visited the showroom and we weren't disappointed. The designing, ordering and delivery went smoothly and our kitchen looks fabulous. Thank you. '
Andrea from Pontefract 'Our original kitchen was small, we had this knocked through into the dining room and opened it up into the conservatory to make a huge family space, I absolutely love it.
Amazing kitchen, my joiner said it was fabulous quality and a pleasure to fit. Easy to order as the online service won’t let you get it wrong, we did have one door that had a mark on, no issue replaced straightaway.
Cost, let’s just say my other quotes were £5,000, £10,300 and £8,000 dearer. I have recommended DIY Kitchens to all my friends, just as they were recommended to me. I choose the quartz worktops through DIY kitchens, again fabulous service.'
Emma & Chris from Shropshire 'Here are our finished kitchen photos. We chose Dalby in Knightsbridge blue. We absolutely love it.'
Jack & Anna from Essex 'Good finish on the doors, strong base units, easy to install, delivery was really good with really nice friendly team. Damaged unit replaced quickly. Good points and communication when designing the kitchen. Would definitely use again! I heard about DIY kitchens online and saved compared to other kitchen quotes.'
Jodie from Tadcaster 'Here are the photos of my DIY Kitchen. We heard about DIY Kitchens as I know a few people that had used them and recommended them. It was cheaper than other companies and it was very helpful to be able to come and look around the showroom (5/6 times). Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The added bonus of complimentary refreshments meant that our two children enjoyed coming too! We love our kitchen and feel it’s as good a quality as the more expensive ones. '
Dud from Hitchin 'Very impressed with build of units and painted doors as opposed to laminate. Units well constructed and easy to put in & worktop excellent quality. Overall, 10/10, having saved £1,100 on similar ready built units. You were recommended by professional kitchen fitter. '
Helen from Manchester 'We get so may compliments on our kitchen, we would recommend DIY to anyone looking for a new kitchen. We heard about DIY Kitchens from our Builder, Cornfield Construction, Elliott Travis. We had quotes from Wren kitchens and DIY was much better.'
Jane from Bristol 'I love my new Dove Grey shaker style kitchen. It’s incredible quality and it brings a light and fresh feel to my kitchen. I can’t believe how well made this is and all my friends love it and think I spent twice the price! I saved so much money and yet the workmanship on these is 100% quality. The whole process was incredibly easy, I would definitely recommend DIY kitchens to anyone. '
Annabelle from Scotland 'This kitchen is in our "upside down" cottage in Scotland. The house was derelict, we moved the kitchen from the back downstairs to the first floor front. We LOVE it sitting at the breakfast bar watching the view! We ALSO put a DIY micro kitchen in the hall on the ground floor as a tea/coffee making area with a fridge and sink. '
Daniel from Southampton 'The kitchen cupboards are amazingly well built, every trade we’ve had in has commented on their sturdiness and the high quality thick back panels. The hinges and drawer sliders used are all great quality too. The solid cupboard doors and matching end panels are beautifully made and the paint is good quality and a lovey finish. Overall we couldn’t have been happier with the whole service including the helpful design and delivery teams. We heard about DIY Kitchens through property renovators on YouTube and our kitchen was significantly cheaper than other quotes, approximately 50% cheaper.'
Nigel from Hampshire 'I researched kitchen suppliers on the internet and found very favourable reviews. Your prices beat all our local suppliers Wren. Magnet ,Howden and B&Q on quality and price also unit options as we specifically wanted a walk-in larder cupboard. All units very well made and were easy to install. We love the pull-out drawers and cutlery storage trays.'
Natalie & Ricky from Chester 'We have found the quality of the kitchen fantastic. It is holding up to family life perfectly! I heard about DIY through other people's Instagram accounts when I was researching kitchen suppliers. I didn' get any other quotes as I was so convinced I wanted a DIY kitchen. '
Jordan from Lancashire 'The quality of the kitchen was the best I've experienced. I work in construction and use all the large kitchen suppliers, i.e. Moores, Howdens, Magnet, Symphony, Rixonway and most ranges. I heard great things about DIY so we decided to visit your showroom before we ordered from one of the above. We were so please we did and placed an order the very next week!
Delivery was great, all the kitchen units really well packaged and fully assembled. Cabinets really well built even the cabinet legs are a high end product and not the cheap ones seen with other suppliers. A fantastic experience!! Thank you! '
Fiona & Lee from Warrington 'My overall impression of the kitchen is that it looks stunning and several friends and neighbours have been round to admire it and have gone onto purchase from you. The units are excellent at saving space and making best use of the area available. The finish is excellent and made to a fantastic standard.
I heard about you from our son-in-law who fitted the kitchen. He's a kitchen fitter by trade and preferred to install yours over any competitors' products. We were delighted to get such quality at a great price - it was excellent value. We saved more than enough on the Howden's quote to buy a splashback that really complemented the kitchen. '
Alan and Amanda from Gloucestershire 'We absolutely love our new DIY kitchen! We couldn’t decide between the Malton Sage or Grey so we ordered some samples and had them up in the old kitchen space for a while to see what the colour looked like in different lighting. In the end we opted for the sage with copper handles which is a beautiful combination. The copper really pops against the green.
The solid oak worktops really complement the country cottage look we were looking for. The kitchen feels really solid and the quality for the price is remarkable. We ended up with a much higher spec kitchen and still paid £5k less than a well-known high street kitchen company we also had a quote from.
We discovered DIY kitchens through Google and read up on customer reviews, which were impressive. The whole process was so simple and the customer service was outstanding, as per other people’s reviews. We have been waxing lyrical about DIY kitchens to anyone who will listen! We wouldn’t go anywhere else now. '
Bev from Swindon 'The room wasn’t a kitchen to start with and quite a narrow room, but the DIY Kitchen units transformed it and I love it now.
The kitchen units are excellent quality and the kitchen fitter likened them to a high end kitchen company that he fits for, no issues with fitting them. The cost was lower than anywhere else. The worktop is from elsewhere.
The ordering seemed daunting at first but was fairly straight forward once I got the hang of it. It’s definitely worth getting a professional to check over measurements before ordering. I would definitely recommend and I would use again without doubt if I move house.'
Andrea from Yorkshire 'Our original kitchen was small so we had this knocked through into dining room and opened back up into the conservatory, to make a huge family space. I absolutely love it.
The kitchen is amazing, my joiner said it was fabulous quality and a pleasure to fit. It was also Easy to order, as the online service won’t let you get it wrong, we did have one door that had a mark on but no issue replaced straightaway.
Cost wise, let’s just say my other quotes were £5,000, £10,300, and £8,000 dearer. I have recommended DIY Kitchens to everyone and they were recommended to me. I choose the quartz worktops through DIY kitchens, again, fabulous service'
Danielle from Cheshire 'We absolutely love our kitchen. Really impressed with the quality and value for money. Our builder and kitchen fitter were gobsmacked at the price and said they’d recommend you to clients going forwards! '
Howard from Bretby 'We enjoyed working with DIY Kitchens, always friendly and helpful. The finished kitchen looks great and for sure would have cost a lot more from elsewhere, although this is tricky to quantify as we bought a bigger kitchen from you than otherwise we would have done. Worktops are a dream!
We heard about you from a friend who also fitted on of your kitchens.'
Sophie from Lincolnshire 'Fantastic and quick responses from the team, the quality of the kitchen is exceptional and much better than other companies I had looked at. The colour choices are amazing and being sent samples helps you check the lighting in the actual kitchen, so you can be sure on your choice. Exceptional! '
Billy from Surrey 'We heard about DIY-kitchens through a friend and i'm impressed with the range of units, quality of the doors, worktops and customer service of DIY Kitchens and have been recommending them to friends who have been remodelling their kitchens lately.
We made a huge saving enabling us to build our dream kitchen for half the price of what was quoted locally. Over all we're really happy with our new kitchen.'
Alan From Gloucester 'I had used DIY Kitchens before so took a trip to the show room to get a better idea of what we wanted in terms of tyre of styles and colours. Armed with this we then used the planner to create our new kitchen and I must say the staff were quick to respond to any queries.
The quality is in my opinion excellent, good build quality of the units, fittings and doors and best of all they come built, plus, I had the oven unit dry assembled to enable the oven and microwave to be lowered and the lower draw front utilised as an upper door. Whilst there were some issues with a couple of parts, this was rectified very quickly, with all the staff being extremely helpful and friendly.
Finally, the quartz worktops were sourced though DIY Kitchens and again, an excellent service and they certainly set of the overall look of the kitchen. I would certainly recommend DIY kitchens to both the trade and those with the diy skills to do it themselves'
William from Edinburgh 'Here are some photos of my Norton Dove Gray kitchen. The beauty of DIY Kitchens was that apart from some electrical work, I was able to do the rest, from design using the excellent online tool to completion by myself as a competent d-i-yer.
The quality was top notch. I had found you on the internet and checked out the reviews, liked what I saw and read and went for it without bothering about other kitchen suppliers and I am more than happy that I did.'
Tony from Yorkshire 'Here are some pictures of my kitchen that I bought from you, I hope you like them as much as I love my kitchen!
The quality and finish of the units are excellent and they were delivered on time with friendly staff who were very helpful. My brother had previously bought his kitchen from you and was singing your praises (and he is a perfectionist), so we thought if it’s good enough for him it will be good enough for us - and it certainly exceeded our expectations!
The total cost of our kitchen worked out far cheaper than most of the other suppliers, but this did not mean that we compromised on the quality. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at DIY kitchens for your excellent service.'
Chris from Barnsley 'I am so impressed with the high quality and value of this beautiful kitchen, it looks amazing. People cannot believe the price I paid for this stunning kitchen. They guessed at a price 2 or 3 times what I paid.
The quality and value and customer service is second to none. I was originally recommended DIY Kitchens and was then hooked and have made several orders since. I don't even look anywhere else, as there is nowhere that comes close to your quality and value.'
David from Buckinghamshire 'Genuinely super delighted with the product and the service we received.'
Paul from Cambridge 'We were blown away with the whole process from DIY Kitchens. The online help with our order was efficient and extremely helpful. Everything was delivered with zero problems and the quality of the doors and units is excellent.
We heard about DIY Kitchens from a friend, who had been a previous customer and had also been full of praise. We made a substantial saving from other kitchen quotes for the same style and would not hesitate to use DIY Kitchens again in the future and would recommend to friends and family. '
Eva from Glasgow 'Here are some photos of my fantastic kitchen!! I was blown away with the quality and look of my worktops and kitchen cupboard units. Both look much more expensive than the actual cost and the range of styles, colours and grain textures available really impressed me. I also found the service to be very personal and loved the special touch of a gift box with tea and biscuits - much needed when moving into my first flat! I made an approximate saving of £1,500 compared to average quotes from other companies.'
Keith from Stafford 'My wife and I decided to have a utility fitted first and we were so pleased with the quality and style of all the units received. Also choosing on line, ordering, delivery and the whole process for us was stress free and straightforward.
We immediately decided to have a whole new kitchen exactly the same and we were not disappointed. It is absolutely beautiful. Our friends and neighbours have all said how lovely our home is now. Thank you for everything.'
Vivienne from Surrey 'Here are some photos of my new kitchen which I purchased in September last year following a visit to your showroom with my partner Jason and our dog Dexter who was a big hit with the girls in the showroom who made us all feel extremely welcome.
Jason is a kitchen fitter by trade and had fitted one of your kitchens for a customer and thought it was a very good quality, so when I needed a new kitchen, we came up to see you.
I was also very impressed with the quality and price of the kitchens. I decided to order a Norton kitchen in sage green. Now it has been installed, I am very happy with the finish and how nice it has made my kitchen look. The natural oak carcasses go really well with the green and the oak worktops and upstands look amazing. The secret is to make sure they are well oiled, you can tell that my partner is a kitchen fitter!, he is also a perfectionist, so I am really lucky that he was able to fit it for me to such a high standard, the only drawback was I had to wait until March, as he was so busy fitting kitchens for his customers.
At the time I bought my new kitchen, you were unable to supply any white goods, so I purchased these online from other suppliers, however, overall taking everything into account, I managed to save approximately £4000 on the quote I received from Howdens. The overall finish is far superior to any other kitchens I had looked at, so the saving was an even bigger bonus.
I hope you like the photos, Dexter has made an appearance and sends his love to you all. I have also attached some photos of my old kitchen so you can see the transformation. I would also like to say thank you for the welcome gift of flapjacks and Yorkshire tea bags, it was a nice touch to an overall excellent service.'
Shauna from Bournemouth 'I cannot rate DIY Kitchens enough. The planning tool was just incredible. I wanted a lot from my space however after receiving a quotation of £75k to extend the property out 1.8m before flooring etc I needed to work clever.
I had two kitchens designed by different companies and they lacked something special. Having the units fully assembled with soft close doors was fantastic! We went for Norton doors in cashmere and for bench seating, we used reduced height drawers with the Carrera doors in the cashmere. The tongue and groove end panels add that high end look with a huge saving compared to the three other companies we initially looked into.
I had seen rave reviews on Instagram, so I felt confident in ordering. Delivery was terrific and the units were flawless. The top up paint however was very useful. Having a baby walker crash into the island area does take its toll. We are just so happy, it’s given our growing family a beautiful kitchen diner. '
Pete from Market Harborough 'Great quality and competitive prices and I found DIY kitchens on Google. I had a quote from Howdens, who I have a trade account with but your kitchen worked out cheaper and I also thought the quality of yours was better. I used to design and fit kitchens and can thoroughly recommend you.'
Sophie & Mike from from Leicestershire 'We are extremely impressed with the quality and craftsmanship that went into building our dream kitchen. The finish on the doors and cupboards is excellent, and our quartz worktop is impeccable - size cut to perfection!
We loved looking around the showroom to get a feel for how it would really look and work for us, and it made our minds up about which wood finish to choose.
We had excellent customer service throughout with our many changes and alterations. We are absolutely in love with our completed kitchen and have recommended DIY Kitchens to friends and family! We were recommended by 3 friends and we saved £3k by choosing DIY Kitchens over Wren.'
Richard & Julie from Lincs 'Absolutely delighted with the kitchen, the quality the build the choice and the after sales support was way and above what we expected.
We were not able to fit the kitchen for 6 months after delivery and had a couple of issues with a cupboard and shelving unit on installation. These were replaced, no questions asked and were with us two days later, now that’s customer service!!
We heard of DIY kitchens from a relative who had also purchased from yourselves. We were able to have lots more additional features ie round cupboard's and ends etc, which were out of reach with other quotes.'
Vicki from Yorkshire 'We love the quality and everyone comments on how lovely it is and your service was second to none. We were both so impressed.'
Natalia from Stockport 'The kitchen is great! Quality is great! We had so many questions during the planning stage and the diy-kitchens support team were always there quickly replying. We chose the worktop from here too as we were so impressed by the fact that its not real stone, but had the smooth texture as if it were.
The range of units were also impressive and we managed to fit everything in that we wanted including 2 pull out larder units! We preferred having the control to design it ourselves and what stood out was the quick lead time on delivery. As soon as were able to measure the space properly we ordered and so it meant the whole kitchen could be renovated and re-fit at once rather than having a gap between.'
Meriel from Surrey 'Having been very impressed with my daughter's new kitchen, purchased from DIY Kitchens; the quality of the units, the colour of the door and drawer fronts, the variety of units available and the overall look of the finished kitchen, we did not hesitate to choose to go with DIY Kitchens when we moved in to a new bungalow recently.
The existing kitchen units were old and worn and there was a dead area at one end. By incorporating a corner larder cupboard, we were able to make excellent use of the said space. Our new kitchen has considerably more storage space and by choosing integrated appliances and including a variety of units and accessories, we now have a very attractive and highly efficient kitchen.
I was pleased I opted for “soft close” too. To add the final touch, we chose a quartz worktop surface, with matching upstands, window sill, and cooker and sink splash-backs. The final cost came in considerably lower than the quote we had received from a High Street kitchen supplier.'
Natalie from York 'We absolutely love our DIY Kitchen. From start to finish it's been a fantastic experience. There's no pushy sales tactics, the design tool is really straightforward and simple to use. It was also reassuring to know that a member of staf then double checks your order as well to make sure there's nothing obvious missing!
The delivery people were so friendly and a massive help. The kitchen itself is a quality kitchen. I love how it looks, I love how big the cupboards are and the amount of space. The colours are great. I couldn't recommend them enough! (I also tell everyone about the amount of snacks & drinks in the showroom, that won me over straight away!!!)
Both my plasterer and my door and window fitter recommended you. We saved roughly £2000 by using DIY Kitchens over Wren and the process was so much nicer with DIY kitchens. I feel really strongly about my dislike of Wren's pushy sales tactics. '
Lydia from Cambridgeshire '"Here’s my kitchen that I fitted myself. I am so happy with the quality and attention to detail that your products provide. Nothing was too much trouble from yourselves with any minor issues. We heard about your company from a family member and now have recommended you to lots of our friends and work colleagues. Thank you once again for your great service."'
Richard from Whittlesey 'I found DIY Kitchens via an online video by someone comparing different kitchen manufacturers. I then looked at your website and then visited your showroom with my brother and sister in law to view your range of kitchens. We have since visited the showroom a further two or three times as after my brother and sister in law saw my kitchen they decided against a Howdens kitchen, by the way we both have an account at Howdens, and have ordered and received one of your kitchens which I am now fitting.
We are impressed by the quality of everything including the ordering process and customer services, for instance your units have more substantial legs and big diameter feet plus on the 1000mm units you have an extra leg and any queries/questions have been replied to promptly. I have fitted kitchens from Magnet, Wickes and several of the diy sheds and can say that DIY's kitchen has been the best I've fitted.
I didn't get a quote from any other manufacturers because I was more than happy with the price, my brother's kitchen would have been £8000 to £9000 from Howdens and was less than £5000 from DIY, Howdens said they would match your price but when they were sent the product list of your kitchen they didn't respond I think that says it all. Again many thanks from a very happy customer.'
Paul & Lydia from Yorkshire 'Very happy with the quality of the cabinets and doors. Love the Malton range and the colour. Heard about DIY Kitchens from our Joiner and saved almost half of other kitchen quotes:)'
Warren from Southampton 'Having previously bought a cream wooden kitchen from DIY Kitchens when we first renovated our 1910 period home 15 years ago, we have been very happy with the kitchen in every respect. Therefore, when we decided to update the look of our kitchen in late 2022, we didn’t hesitate to check out their new range of kitchens. We were delighted to find that they were still significantly cheaper than any other quote we had for a similar solid wood shaker style kitchen, and ordered our new kitchen confident in the high quality for a fantastic price, with great advice and customer service too.
Now the new kitchen is fitted, we couldn’t be happier with the results. We had a couple of hiccups with a unit that had gotten damaged during delivery and a handle that had a damaged thread. However, the team at DIY Kitchens swiftly resolved the issue and sent out new ones without question within a couple of days.
The photos show our transformation from one DIY kitchen to another up to date one. Would have no hesitation in returning to the company should we want to update again in the future.'
Kerry & Drew from Aberdeenshire 'We are over the moon with the transformation of our kitchen thanks to DIY Kitchens, so glad we found out about you on an online forum, it is a little scary designing the kitchen yourself on the planner but good fun if you are similar to me and like to tweak away at the little details (also help is only a click away on the planner if you have any problems).
The quality of the units is really impressive very sturdy and well made, we went for the square edge laminate worktop and are super impressed much cheaper than real oak and with a young family a lot less worry!! The worktop seems like it will take all we can throw at it.
The unit doors look brilliant and we ended up going for Dakar, which was a bit of a surprise for both of us, but it was the colour we both liked most in the samples we were sent. We were given quotes from 2 other companies and we definitely saved thousands by going with our gut and getting our new family kitchen through DIY Kitchens.'
Will from North Yorkshire 'Excellent quality units and doors & fantastic delivery service. Very helpful and efficient customer service and kept up to date throughout the entire process. I would, and have, highly recommend you to friends and family (and anyone else for that matter). I heard about you on YouTube and from Google searches and saved around £1100 over a similar spec kitchen from Wren (and no pushy sales people!)'
Chris from London 'Our lovely shaker kitchen, in a bespoke colour. We love it! Thank you DIY Kitchens.'
Amy from Oxfordshire 'We’re really pleased with the look of the kitchen and quality of the units. The online planning tool was great and there were so many different options of cupboards and units for all sorts of widths and depths. It was under 1/3 of the price of the equivalent Magnet kitchen and we have a better kitchen than they could offer!
We especially love the walk in larder. We know 4 sets of friends with DIY Kitchens, so rather than visiting the showroom, we got a good idea of the different styles and quality from visiting their homes and finding out how their kitchen works day-to-day. The customer service was great online too and we would definitely recommend DIY kitchens to our friends.'
Eric from Tamworth 'Quality was very good. No marks, dents, scuffs of any kind after delivery. One year on and the cabinets ate holding up well with no issues of any kind. Kitchen was £1000 cheaper than a big name kitchen supplier and ours with a much better spec. The kitchen was £4000 cheaper than a local company for a very similar spec.
I was told about DIY Kitchens from a friend's father who has been a kitchen installer for over 30 years. He said I should definitely check out DIY Kitchens. Very glad he told me about them. '
Alex from Manchester 'We’re happy with the quality of the units, even the kitchen fitter was surprised with the quality and ease of installing the kitchen. (Only took 2 days to fit the kitchen cupboards and they usually allow approx 4 days). Nothing was missing on the delivery however a unit arrived damaged which was promptly replaced.
The online planning tool was helpful when pre ordering and the pre sales support was excellent - they helped with a few queries I had.
On the units only, we saved around £5000 (we bought appliances and the worktop elsewhere) when comparing to another well known brand.'
Anthony from Chepstow 'Love my 'DIY Kitchens' Kitchen. I ordered the 'Norton' in Dove Grey and Cobham Blue. Despite being told by a leading kitchen retailer that, for my budget, I would not be able to get solid wooden unit doors or Quartz worktops I managed to get both and be within budget by ordering from DIY Kitchens.
The online planner was great, allowing me to tweak the design which then updated in real time, the costs of the kitchen, making the whole process totally transparent.'
Andrew from Cheshire 'Excellent quality kitchens and great customer service. Would buy again and recommend. We decided upon Sage and Heritage Green to compliment each other.
I found the kitchen to be well made, good quality and easy to fit. Customer service pre and post delivery has been excellent. I would recommend this company.'
Steve & Family from The Wirral 'DIY Kitchens is the place to go if your looking for a quality built and stunning kitchen. From ordering to delivery the process was hassle free, with an easy to navigate website, and an extensive showroom with pleasant and knowledgeable staff.
Very competitive pricing on high standard units,resulted in a significant saving on a dream kitchen. Would highly recommend to anyone. The kitchen is uplifting and a pleasure to use.'
Emma from Chester 'I lived with some friends for a while that had a DIY Kitchen and I was always impressed with the quality, style and value. So when I got my new place, I knew DIY Kitchens would be my go to. I ordered some samples, which were big enough to give you a real feel for what the cupboards would look like and they helped enormously in matching to a worktop.
DIY Kitchens were really helpful during the planning and proactive in dealing with some items that were not ready for the main delivery date. They ensured I had everything before my kitchen fitting.
My kitchen fitter commented on the high quality of the cupboards and ease of assembly. My little island is my favourite feature. I can chop and scoop waste directly into the bin. It’s also the leaning post and place where people gather with a glass of wine whilst preparing food.'
Charlie from Oxfordshire 'Please find photos of our amazing new kitchen from you. We have been so impressed with the quality, incredible customer service and choice available, so much so we have completed our utility room with your units too!
The price was a LOT more reasonable than other places we looked at and saved us a large amount of money. We have been so impressed that we have recommended DIY Kitchens many times to others, who have gone on to use you. Many thanks again, you have made our family kitchen complete!'
Jayne from Lancashire 'We are loving our DIY kitchen. We were recommended to use DIY as our son had ordered his kitchen from you a couple of years ago; after much research he regarded you as the best.
We visited the showroom & were impressed with the welcome we received & the quality of the products. Ordering was straight forward - with a little help from our son with the design! We did not even look at other company quotes as we were so impressed with the product quality.
We ordered extra end panels & our fitter was able to make a kitchen bench which has turned out fantastic. Our daughter has also ordered her kitchen from DIY so we are now a whole family having a DIY kitchen! Testimony in itself. '
Rebecca & James from Barnsley 'We made great use of the online planner, it was really easy to use and helped us to visualise our project. We received great customer service and support with our order. The kitchen units are really well made and we were able to fit these ourselves, without prior experience. We’re also really pleased with our Quarts worktop, it fits our space perfectly.
We were recommended by a family member as well as a colleague. We have been so pleased with the quality of our kitchen, as well as the price. DIY Kitchens excelled when compared to the cost and quality of other kitchen suppliers and we will be sure to recommend the company to others.'
Sue from Lincolnshire 'Here are the photos of my kitchen, we ordered the Malton Cashmere.'
Nicola & Dan from Yorkshire 'The quality of the cabinets and doors is so much better than any other kitchen we have had. We heard about DIY kitchens mainly through social media and DIY Kitchens was the most competitive price out of the quotes we had.'
Kate & Hai from Wolverhampton 'We'd heard about DIY Kitchens through the vast amount of recommendations we'd seen on social media, we loved the online design tool, which gave us the freedom to tweak and perfect our design. The process has been fantastic and the quality is superb, we couldn't have been happier with the finished result especially when we've saved ourselves between £10K to £15K based on other quotes.'
Katie from London 'Here are photos of our new DIY Kitchen! We were recommended online by Alex Steadman of The Frugality. Great quality of drawers and we ordered it in white, so we could paint it. Really love the pull out larder and the planning tool was really intuitive and great customer service. So much cheaper than any other quotes we received (almost half).'
John from Selby 'Here are some photos of our kitchen from DIY Kitchens. It's lovely quality with a good finish and attention to detail. We heard about you from my son, who has a DIY kitchen and we liked the quality. We only got a quote from DIY Kitchens.'
Chris from Canterbury 'It’s not the first time I bought from DIY Kitchens. As before, very helpful aftersales team who make sure you've got all your bits & pieces. Delivery team is fantastic and very careful too. On top of all that, you save a lot on high quality kitchen. I would recommend to everyone and will buy again for the next project.'
Laura from Strathdon '
I heard about DIY kitchen from a friend whose daughter had bought a kitchen from you. She and her daughter were very complimentary about the quality and service from DIY kitchens.
We designed the kitchen ourselves, which was probably a mistake. It would have been far easier to let DIY kitchens' planner do it for us. Anyway, we did manage eventually ....and DIY kitchens were brilliant about adding on various items at a later date because we had got it a bit wrong sometimes!!
Our joiner was very complimentary about the quality of the units and could not believe how inexpensive they were. We love the colour and the finish of the doors and especially the soft close hinges!
We had got 2 quotes from local kitchen suppliers and they were £7,000 and £8,000 MORE expensive than DIY kitchens. We got our kitchen and then added in our whole utility, since it was then affordable to do it too.
From start to finish, DIY Kitchens has been brilliant. Any queries and you can talk to someone on a phone or drop and email and they always get back quickly with an answer. Which was such a boost.
The delivery drivers also went above and beyond and delivered in drifting snow when loads of roads were closed they did a 200 mile detour to get to us. Absolutely phenomenal! My local postman didn't bother!!'
Craig from Jersey 'My wife and I are renovating our house, and it was our builder who recommended DIY Kitchens to us having fitted many kitchens from you before. We were cautious but trusted him, and we are very happy with the end result.
The price was far lower than anything else that we could have sourced from local suppliers but we ordered samples and it was the quality that really impressed us - the great price was a bonus. All the units were delivered already built rather than being flat packed, and they were all very well packaged so despite having been trans-shipped after the initial delivery and enduring a sea crossing to Jersey there was no damage at all - plus everything that was ordered was exactly what was delivered too. That's how it should be of course, but too often isn't the case. The units felt really solid and well-built, plus the painted finish on our kitchen is superb and durable. It looks like it should cost a lot more than it did.
As you can see we have a lot of drawers and the runner mechanisms are very smooth and feel like they will last forever, and they are all soft close which makes them feel very plush.
The worktops are not from DIY, sorry. We sourced those locally due to needing speciality fitting, but we did order some engineered oak worktops from you, which our builder skilfully crafted into a bespoke breakfast bar and floating shelves above the hob. He says that the quality of these oak tops is very good, and unbeatable value too. We certainly love the look and feel of the oak, it brings a lovely natural warmth to the kitchen and looks fab.
By the way, I found the beta 3d planning tool very useful by the way. It took some getting used to but having a background in IT helped. Sure it has limitations but it was great to visualize our kitchen and we made many tweaks and changes after having seen the 3d model which was immeasurably helpful to us, so Thank you for making that available.'
Diana from Durham 'We were recommend by my brother who also purchased his kitchen from you. The build quality is good and the soft hinges are fabulous. Our kitchen is small but your wide variety of sizes and configuration options, allowed us to best utilise the limited space. The price point is also well matched or even better than other companies. This is the second kitchen we have done, as we did our sons first and we would always use DIY kitchens.'
Michael from Hull 'Here are some photos of my recently completed kitchen, which I LOVE!
I heard about DIY kitchens from loads of home accounts on Instagram, so considering how popular they are, I thought I’d give them a go!
I was not disappointed! The showroom has so much choice and the staff are SO helpful and friendly! The online planner tool is also the only one of its kind that I’ve used and is perfect if you’re a control freak like me, who needs to see every configuration possible in 3D before committing!
With the prices being so reasonable I was able to ‘upgrade’ to frosted glass panels on the drawers, hidden cutlery drawers, pull out pantry storage, timber door fronts and quartz tops! All of these ‘upgrades’ just make the kitchen feel so much more special and next level when compared to some of my friends new kitchens, which they’ve paid over twice the price for elsewhere!
I have already recommended DIY kitchens to many of my customers, who are just happy as I am! Thanks so much, will definitely always use you in the future! '
Vicky & Matt from Cambridgeshire 'Just an email to say how impressed we were with DIY kitchens from start to finish. You could not have been more helpful, with the added bonus of no pushy salespeople!
We completed our extension, that we have built ourselves, and we think you would agree that the new kitchen is a million times. Better than what we had before! Thanks again DIY KITCHENS. I have been recommending you to everyone!'
Helen from Sidcup 'Fantastic quality, exceptional customer service, and good delivery time, once our design was checked and completed by their team. So refreshing to have the time and freedom to design our own kitchen - changing our plan several times, with the aide of the 3D visualiser. Delivered ready to install!'
John & Gill from Durham 'Excellent quality kitchen and worktop. Previous kitchen was Howdens. DIY is better quality and the price was very competitive, even against flatpack. The showroom was excellent. I fitted the kitchen myself, apart from the electrics. If anyone wants to fit their own kitchen then I highly recommend it!'
Annah & Alex from York 'When we started to look for a new kitchen my father in law suggested that we go to the DIY Kitchens showroom and that it would inspire us, and it did just that.
Using the software to build and place the order was easy and actually really enjoyable. We got to take our time, making sure everything was right and looked how we wanted it to.
We love the colour and quality of the kitchen, it came pre built and the internal cupboards are all a wood look finish, which when shopping around, we found most kitchen companies charged extra for.
The value for money is amazing and the customer service has been exceptional. Everyone who comes to our home comments on the kitchen and asks where it’s from and we love telling everyone we’ve planned it all by ourselves using DIY Kitchens!'
Helen from Kent 'Having spent hours in my local showroom trying to get them to design a kitchen to my specifications and failing, my brother recommended I try diy-kitchens. He had previously fitted two of these with great results and I am so glad I took his advice!
My brother-in-law helped me to use your planner and I sent off our first design. Sophie from the webbot team was absolutely brilliant in suggesting tweeks and revising the plan, so that it included all I wanted and looked more symmetrical. Her speed in getting back to me and her patience in answering all my queries were second-to-none! The 3D planner meant that I could see exactly what the finished result would be, which was so helpful.
I sent off for samples of the doors and colours as wanted to see the quality of the units, not being able to visit the showroom. I was very pleased with the sturdiness and finish and chose the Shaker Stanbury design in White. Being a pensioner on a small budget and wanting to future-proof my kitchen, I chose mainly drawers, so as to be able to get to the back of the units, and am especially pleased with my tall larder with the pull-out drawers.
My washing-machine and boiler are now neatly hidden behind matching doors which were supplied with the units, The large range of different-sized cupboards and drawers enabled me to put everything away in their own space, and re-cycling bins are no longer visible either!
Delivery was as scheduled, and they even checked that their lorry would be able to access the narrow entrance to my mews property by sending a smaller vehicle.
There are some photos of my new kitchen with some before shots as well, and have already recommended diy-kitchens to friends, who are very impressed with the results of mine. '
Laurie from Penzance 'We live in a Victorian townhouse and we wanted our new kitchen to reflect the character of the house. We switched kitchen and dining spaces so we could have a bigger kitchen. It was a lot of work, and cost is always a consideration.
We had used DIY Kitchens for our kitchen in London several years ago, so we knew the quality and service was great. Aside from an end panel which needed to be exchanged, it went pretty smoothly, especially considering we are all the way down in Penzance!
We also got the oak worktops and the Belfast sink from DIY Kitchens. We particularly like the worktops, they are beautiful. The last picture is a before shot, the dining room is where the kitchen is now.'
Mike & Mel from Kent 'Small but perfectly formed. We had hopped to build a much bigger kitchen in a new extension. However by the time we came to do our new kitchen this was beyond our budget.
We found DIY kitchens by accident after many Internet searches. After a lot of hard work fitting a new kitchen plan and a downstairs washroom in the space of the old kitchen, we ended up with a really good layout.
This was only possible because of the fantastic range of units. Lots of units in lots sizes, all easily accessible online, and not behind the barrier of a design service.
The website was easy to use and the order went through without any hitches. Everything arrived built and ready to fit. Well packaged and hand delivered by a good team. To keep the budget down, I had to do most of the work installing the kitchen from plastering to flooring. Installing the cupboards was probably the smoothest part.
We love our new kitchen and it’s probably better than had we gone for in our original much grander plan. '
Simon Truscott 'Here are some pictures, including a 'before'shot. I bought a Linton Dove Grey Shaker Kitchen.'
Philip from Middlesbrough 'We love our new kitchen, the quality of the units and doors are very good. I especially liked the fact that they were all delivered assembled and the units are colour matched to the doors. This makes them look really high end and we have had many compliments from friends and family.
The fitting instructions were very comprehensive and all parts and accessories well packed. I especially liked the quality of the base unit feet, very solid, robust and easy to adjust.
We did have an issue with 2 missing cupboard doors which unfortunately took 5 months to be resolved. The customer service was very good and responsive, it was just an issue with stock availability which was quite frustrating.
If it wasn't for that issue, I'd happily give 5 star for service and quality, never the less I still recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone who asks.
The process of purchasing is easy with the online kitchen planner, showroom, help pages and communication.
When compared to other kitchen companies the price was very competitive in some cases half the price for a like for like product. '
Julie & Rick Hill from Cleethorpes 'I chose DIY kitchens as I was recommended by several friends. By far the best showroom, quality, price and service. Can't fault in any of these categories. '
Elaine from Northumberland 'Here are some pictures of our kitchen. I’ve included the view from our sitting room as we’ve bought and installed wall cupboards and shelves and painted them to match the kitchen units. My clever husband installed the units although he’s a metal fabricator by trade! '
Leanne from South Wales 'I'm really pleased with our new kitchen! The quality and wide variety of unit/drawer options available from DIY Kitchens means we have been able to completely change the layout and has transformed how we use this space.'
Claire from Norfolk 'We went for Stanbury Dove Grey and Stanbury Carbon. I highly recommend this supplier and kitchen. From start to finish. There was always someone to ask if needed help with measurements etc. I was a bit dubious but I can honestly say that all our worries were taken away when we saw the quality of the kitchen, how well it was packed and the final product when all together. Thanks DIY kitchens I now don’t have to wash up in the bath 🥰
The worktop is gorgeous too. Fitters very friendly and did a first class job . An amazing kitchen at half the price of one from know retailers!'
Phil from North Yorkshire 'Overall impression is Excellent. Dekton worktop is superb and can withstand anything!'
Jill from Windsor 'My DIY kitchen has recently been finished and I am delighted with it. Quality of the units is excellent. The oak worktops finish the look of the Shaker kitchen perfectly and it suits my Grade II listed cottage.
The service from start to finish has been exemplary and the webbot help throughout the process was brilliant! I ordered the Belfast sink, taps and door handles which look very good in the antiqued pewter finish. My kitchen fitter remarked on the quality of the products too. One item was damaged and sent back with absolutely no problem or query and a replacement speedily replaced.
I would highly recommend DIY kitchens, value for money is without question amazing.'
Natasha from Buckinghamshire 'We absolutely Love Love Love our kitchen! For me it’s a dream come true and ha our first Christmas in our new kitchen was just such an incredible feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. The quality of the kitchen is fabulous, with the solid wood painted doors I was very protective of them at the start but we are 9 months in and I’ve learnt that they are actually far more robust that I had imagined.
We are so pleased with our DIY kitchen that we have just ordered a Linwood Utility room too. I would not hesitate to recommend DIY and personally would not go anywhere else in the future. '
Simon from Cheshire 'Excellent build quality and finish at a very competitive price. The solid oak worktop is amazing value for money. I fitted the entire kitchen myself, which highlights how easy they are to install, as I’m no expert!'
Jonathan from Leeds 'We ordered our kitchen early last year, it arrived in April, but despite the promises of our builders to have the kitchen area ready for April they ended up running 4 months over and I wasn't able to fit the kitchen until the autumn (6 months of living around the boxes! not DIY kitchen's fault, but we were so pleased to finally get it installed!).
The kitchen is great and we are really pleased with it and the transformation of the space. From arranging visits to look at your showroom (during COVID), to the helpful team who were able to check my kitchen plans before ordering, our interactions with DIY kitchens were all really positive. The Kitchen planner tool was brilliant, and being able to visualise the finished kitchen was really helpful.
We are really impressed with how solid, functional, and well designed the cabinets all are. The fitting guides you provided were really helpful for a first time DIY fitter! And the variety of cabinet styles we were able to choose from have meant that we now have a kitchen that really works for us.
We heard about DIY kitchens through researching where to get the best quality fitted kitchen from, and we are not disappointed. For the cost, the quality is so much better than all the competitors we looked at.'
Samantha from Cambridge 'The kitchen is of wonderful quality and was really easy and enjoyable to design. The customer care team have been super helpful. I heard about DIY kitchens through a friend - their kitchen looked amazing.'
Kieran from Sheffield 'Very pleased with the quality - everyone always says how good it looks, and the builder said it was good quality also. The free flapjack and tea was a bonus!'
Leanne from Huddersfield 'The kitchen is fantastic quality, we loved that we were able to choose any bespoke colour and went with the Clayton Cashmere for the main run of cupboards and Clayton in bespoke painted for the island.
We fitted the kitchen ourselves and couldn’t be happier. The worktop is also a Calacatta quartz from DIY kitchens. I’ve included a before picture too. It’s unrecognisable now!'
Ellie from East Sussex 'Here are some photos of our kitchen, as well as some before photos of the space. '
Viki from Hertfordshire 'Our Norton bespoke painted DIY kitchevnhas now been installed! We had our kitchen, utility and entrance hall fitted with DIY units and we are so pleased with the quality and value that next we are exploring a bookcase wall using wall cupboards and end panels to make shelves. The bespoke colours are a perfect match.'
Tom & Samantha from Norfolk 'We are really impressed with the quality of the kitchen, the units look amazing and feel high quality. Found the website and support staff great for ordering online and would recommend to friends and family. We heard about DIY from recommendations on a home improvement Facebook page.'
Lisa from North Yorkshire 'We are so thrilled with our fabulous kitchen we just had to share! '
Alex from Leamington Spa 'The kitchen has a good quality feel, units robust and well put together, nice looking result. '
Jonathan from Dartford 'We love this kitchen, and it turned out so well. Nick Morris You Tuber gave a good oversight on lots of kitchen manufactures and basically said he would always use DIY Kitchens. I then went from there.
Designing the kitchen on the DIY Kitchen website meant you could play around with designs. So many sizes of units. Ordered and delivery in around 7 weeks. Top quality units, doors, draws and hardware. Fully built with doors and draws. Top it off with quartz worktops. Laser measure to fit perfectly. Could not recommend enough.'
Pat from Pontefract 'Attractive units & great quality. DIY kitchens were recommended.'
Gary & Nicola from Nottingham 'We would like to thank you for the excellent service we received from you.
From our first visit to your showroom we were bowled over with the quality of the units, and our new kitchen has surpassed our expectations. We had a couple of minor issues which were dealt with quickly by your after sales team.
We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family.'
Chris from Aylesbury 'Some pictures of our finished kitchen, fitted by myself.
We were recommended DIY kitchens by our builder who was completing an extension for us. He had a few clients who had used them before. We were incredibly impressed with DIY kitchens. From ordering, to deliver to after sales support, the care and attention taken by the team was fantastic.
Designing the kitchen on the website was very easy and ordering easier still. Delivery was on time and the gents delivering the order were helpful and very careful. Fitting was very straightforward. When I did make a couple of errors, getting replacement parts was simple and straightforward.
The quality of the units and doors is amazing. We visited a lot of renowned showrooms and I would say that the quality of the units and accessories is as good if not better than all of those when particularly considering those places wanted over double the price. Our builder who had recommended DIY kitchens to use, was equally impressed as were our worktop suppliers and fitters. '
Stella from Conwy 'Here are the pictures of the DIY kitchen we installed in July/August. Really pleased with the quality and the service we received, which was exceptional.'
Denis from Derbyshire 'Completed kitchen pictures. I heard about you by word of mouth from a building inspector. '
Nicky from Cornwall 'The whole process with DIY Kitchens was perfection from start to finish. I came across the company through a search on the internet.
The designing online was fun and easy with great support throughout the stages. All questions were answered fully and sometimes with additional useful suggestions.
The delivery was faultless, despite our narrow lane and entrance to our property. Our builders were very impressed, having never fitted a DIY kitchen before, they felt the quality was better than several well known kitchen makers. I made a recommendation to our electrician and he was so grateful for the saving he made that he did part of his work for free!!
Despite having a slight dent or scratch on a couple of doors there was no quibble or problem to replace them very quickly. Since having the kitchen installed and living with it for a while we have been impressed by how easy it is to keep the doors clean in comparison to previous kitchens we have had.
We have had so many compliments on the sage colour and beautiful wooden worktops. Another touch friends love is the matching tongue and groove panels with those on our walls. The kitchen is the heart of the home and my DIY kitchen has certainly stolen my heart. I am so glad I chose them.'
Sefora from Cambridge 'We chose a Norton Dove Grey and Cobham blue. We heard from DIY Kitchen through social media, mainly by home renovations accounts who had one of your kitchens. When it was time to buy our kitchen, we visited a few big retailers and got some quotes, but prices were quite high and the unit quality wasn't that impressive.
I started to use the Online DIY Planner to get an understanding of what kitchen we could get for our budget and the price was very competitive to say the least! Despite the distance, we eventually decided to visit the showroom, which was absolutely worth it as we got to feel the units and their quality. I absolutely loved using the Online Kitchen Planner, I found it very easy to use and gave me complete freedom to customize every single piece to our needs.
I found big kitchen retailers designs quite cramped, as they just want to sell you as many units as possible without taking in consideration how you would actually use that space. Choosing the worktop was a bit more tricky because for some reason I struggled to find online reviews about it. I saw that most of the people who got a DIY Kitchen bought the worktop from local suppliers. We wanted quartz worktop and we got some quotes from local suppliers which were all very expensive and didn't even include a downturn.
We ordered a few quartz samples from DIY website, tested them with multiple stains and eventually decided to go for it as the price was very good, nearly half of what local suppliers quoted us. We chose White Carrara quartz worktop and we could have not been happier with it! Choosing a worktop from a 10x10 samples wasn't easy and again, I was quite nervous about the whole template and installation, but the people for Natural Stones have been absolutely perfect and professional from start to finish. The White Carrara worktop is exactly how I wanted it to be, with very subtle but very elegant marble veins, I think it's one my favorite feature.
Kitchen delivery went pretty well too, there was no damage at all. My husband fitted the kitchen, which he never done before, but these type of kitchens are pretty easy to install if you have the right tools and are used to DIY jobs. We honestly could not be happier with our kitchen, the whole process was easy and smooth.
We got a solid wood kitchen with quartz worktop for the best price and we now have a very social space to share with our guests. '
Carly from Essex 'Here are some pictures of our DIY kitchen we installed in a self build last year. All looking good and very happy with the results. '
Nabil from Manchester 'Here are some photos of my kitchen from DIY Kitchens. Also a photo of the previous kitchen. We did do some structural changes to make it a galley kitchen rather than a 'U'.
My wife and I are in love with this kitchen. It looks super modern and doesn't feel cheap and brittle at all. The cabinets and doors are all extremely high quality with a painted finish rather than a laminate wrap, giving a high end look to your kitchen. The handles give a slick finish to the kitchen and the colour compliments the Cobham Blue. I'd highly recommend DIY Kitchens for anyone looking for a high quality personalisable kitchen.
My wife was researching kitchens and came across the goldmine that is DIY Kitchens. Painted units, high quality finishes, all at trade prices! It was almost too good to believe at the time. Highly recommend DIY Kitchens for affordable yet extremely high end kitchens.'
Simon from Cambridge 'We heard of DIY Kitchens through our contractor who had previous experience of fitting their product. The design tool was easy to use and the feedback and tips from the design team was invaluable in finalising our dream kitchen.
A few items were damaged in transit, but these were replaced swiftly and without issue. Once fitted, we were thrilled with our new kitchen. The sleek, matte finish of the Cobham Blue has been admired by workmen and visitors alike, and the solid oak worktops look and feel like they will last us for many years to come.
We have also recommended the website to family who are about to embark on their own kitchen renovation and who have been coveting ours for several months now!'
Charles from Lincolnshire 'Here are some photos of my kitchen, supplied by yourselves. I love the quality of the doors and units, especially the ability to custom colour the units to go best with the doors. I love the colour and the service is amazing. '
John & Debbie from Northumberland 'Having trawled several high street suppliers and been disappointed (by range, colour choice and price) we visited DIY Kitchens showroom and were very impressed. Great range, good colours and highly competitive prices. Expert help at hand with absolutely no sales pressure. Well worth a visit (even if you have to travel a fair distance). We brought home some colour samples and ordered sample doors to see what they would look like at home. The quality of cabinets, door fronts and end panels are superb. The cabinets are robust and well put together. Fronts and panels are well designed, with properly finished joints. All in all, excellent throughout.
Following our own design, we went for the Linwood option with two-tone grey finish (Heron Grey for wall cupboards and Carbon for floor and tall units). We chose tongue-and-groove effect end panels and are delighted with the result. DIY Kitchens gave us everything we wanted in style, colour and unit choice. They gave us better quality than other suppliers’ top of range at a very competitive and affordable price – in fact for less than a popular high street brand’s basic range.
The ordering process was straightforward, with options easy to understand and select. Delivery was when stated and the delivery team were very helpful and efficient. Each item was very well packed in sturdy cardboard, with edge protection where needed. All arrived in excellent condition ready to unpack and install. The delivery team took our sample doors away and we were refunded quite quickly. After-sales communication was professional and efficient. We ordered extra touch up paint (just in case) and a small item we were missing was delivered speedily.
Installation of the kitchen units was straightforward; we were particularly impressed by the sturdy legs on floor units, which were easy to adjust. We used full length hanging rails for the wall units and had the solid surface worktops made and installed by professionals.
We love our kitchen, it’s exactly what we wanted at a great price. It has been admired by friends and family and we would not hesitate to recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone. We will definitely use them again ourselves, whenever we need a new kitchen in the future.'
Sue & Brian from Burton on Trent 'We think your kitchens are fabulous, excellent value for money and quite frankly they outshine all the others we considered. Also, your customer service is second to none. We installed it ourselves and despite a few hiccups, I’d definitely do it again - you learn by your mistakes! We found you on the internet but after that a friend recommended you. Thanks for all your help.'
Katie & Martin from South Devon 'We absolutely LOVE our new kitchen from DIY kitchens. We heard about your company from an online forum that my husband was on during our build/renovation. We reached out online to see if there was anyone local to us who had a diy kitchen that we could visit to see the quality etc, which we did.
We enjoyed the design process and my husband spent many an hour reconfiguring our plans and wishes. However, after delivery we soon realised there had been an error with our order. The whole kitchen had been painted in in the blue when it was only meant to be the island that was blue and the rest white. The mistake was eventually corrected after another few mishaps along the way, but we were very happy with the service we received, and after all the stress, dust and chaos of living through a fairly substantial build and renovation with two young children, we couldn't be more thrilled with the final outcome.
The quality is amazing. I couldn't fault it at all and I wouldn't change a thing! I think you'll agree, this kitchen has a major WOW factor. Every visitor has been blown away. We're so proud of our home and we would absolutely love to win this competition.'
Wesley & Rachel from Doncaster 'Love our kitchen everything is high quality and looks great. It's the Clayton with walnut worktops. We were recommended DIY kitchens by a friend and glad we listened.'
Rebecca from Surrey 'Here’s some pics of our kitchen. We love this kitchen, especially the colour. The drawer quality is excellent. Service has been great from DIY Kitchens. Thank you! '
Nicola from Edinburgh 'We are very impressed with the quality of the kitchen and have had so many compliments on it. We had great fun designing it and found it very useful, having so many types of units to choose from. I first heard about DIY Kitchens on a popular parenting forum and couldn't believe how much of a better kitchen you get for less money than the ones we had been looking at in traditional kitchen shops.'
Bianca from London 'I was so impressed by how customisable DIY kitchens was. We were able to choose a bespoke colour as well as units perfectly sized for our requirements, so we could use every inch of space available to us. The result is a kitchen that works hard (my partner is a chef!) and looks great. The quality is great and the price is unbeatable!'
Dionne & Rob from Norfolk 'DIY Kitchens allowed us to replace our large kitchen on a budget. We did the whole kitchen ourselves except the worktops, which were ordered and fitted by DIY kitchens. Really impressed with the whole process from ordering to delivery, to the organising and fitting of the worktops. The quality is as good, if not better than other kitchens we visited at high street stores.'
Andy from Hampshire 'Our builder recommended DIY Kitchens as he has fitted many in various housing developments. I was able to design the kitchen myself using the "DIY Kitchens online Planner"
We are very happy with the quality of finish and the carcasses seem very robust. We also purchased the quartz worktop through DIY Kitchens and I am very impressed with the whole process from survey to fitting. The kitchen looks amazing.'
Ellie from Lincolnshire 'We came to the Pontefract showroom to have a look at your kitchens and as soon as we got home we sent our order off super early being too excited, there was so many styles and types we wanted but we love our warm and cream colours well, also staying at a budget as we are renovating our full house. I love all my space, as well as the breakfast bar in the morning for a quick eat and go.
Ordering was super easy and being able to get the visual option to really make you see what your kitchen would look like before ordering, is a brilliant tool to use!
I definitely recommend DIY kitchens and even after ordering they have always helped us out with questions and support.'
Julie from Cheshire 'We waited a long time to get rid of our 25 year old orange pine MFI kitchen and then Covid got in the way delaying us further. It was worth the wait though. Our kitchen is only small but we have had a lot of people contacting us about it.'
Deb from Essex 'Overall impression, excellent. We were very impressed with not only the product, but the after care of the service too. Quick delivery and good support. Our kitchen fitter was impressed with the quality of the units.'
Ian from Worcestershire 'Here are some pictures of my kitchen, i'm really pleased with it. After sales service was superb with a damaged door and one mistake I made fitting handle. Couldn't fault the service. I've recommended you to several people.'
Nicky from Warwickshire 'We have been absolutely delighted with our kitchen from you, its the look I was looking for and the cornflower blue is lovely.
The quality is fantastic, we have had no problems with it. I found the website brilliant and the customer care was faultless.'
Rob from Leicestershire 'The kitchen has given an impression of increased room size and light factor. The quality of units and accessories are exceptional and can be kept clean and fresh as new at all times. We heard of DIY kitchens from a friend who had also ordered units etc.'
Juliet from Gloucestershire 'I absolutely LOVE my kitchen. Getting it done probably saved my having to move again. The quality of the units is punching way above its weight, pricewise. In other words, it is a fantastic deal for the money. Even my kitchen fitter, who even to the last, was trying to get me to order from Howdens (because that’s what he usually fitted) gave in with good grace and was astonished that it all arrived with everything built and fitted inside et cetera et cetera. It made his job a lot easier. He praised the quality, the fitments and the ease of fitting and I think his praise carries much more weight than mine, because it was hard won.
I love the styling, the weight of everything (the doors feel like a quality item because they have a solidity to them) even the weight of the brass door handles as cheaper fitments feel much lighter. It was completely up to specification and even better in reality than I had anticipated. The worktops are a delight; again, top quality, beautifully fitted, look stunning, easy to clean and the person who came to measure them was such a help to me. I still had a decision to be made with regards to the end of the worktop near the sink and he totally knew what I was talking about and assisted me to make exactly the right decision.
I had crawled all over your showroom when you reopened after lockdown (yes! I came all that way) so I knew that the product was good, but the end result far exceeded my expectations – and everyone elses. My partner (who doesn't live with me) didn’t believe that I would actually get it all together (it took me nearly 2 years in total!) and I made him shut his eyes as he came into the room so I could watch his expression – which was stunned.
As I say, I could go on and on and if you decide to use my pictures (lovely if I won the money but I don’t care, you can use them anyway, as I’m so grateful to you) I can give you more stories to go with them if you like - quality of your sales staff, post sales help, use of website et cetera. And if I (grey haired OAP) can manage your website, anybody can - tho I do have feedback if you want it.
I just have one complaint – when are you going to start doing wardrobes? I need some!!!'
John from Shropshire '
My wife and I found our current Bungalow in December 2020 and moved in at the end of April 2021 following a lengthy conveyance process. From the initial viewing, we knew that the aged kitchen would need to be totally redesigned as it was a kitchen-diner with ancient kitchen units, a hideous, red tiled floor and a miniscule dining area. I have provided a link to “before” images to illustrate what we were up against.
During the months between offer and completion, and with the help of your excellent on-line kitchen planner package, I designed a replacement kitchen to fully utilise the space available, dispensing with the impractical dining area. The resulting design was ready to go even before we moved in!
For peace of mind, we invited a number of local and national contactors to measure up and quote for the job and were stunned by the huge amount of money they wanted for the units and fittings compared with your prices. After a trip to Pontefract to assess the quality and finish of your product we were 100% sure that the new kitchen would be ordered from DIY Kitchens. We loved your Stanbury Range finished in Alabaster, and with help from your excellent planning support team, soon finalised the full list of units and fittings that would be needed to complete the job.
We started the kitchen project in January 2022. The order was shipped from your factory two weeks ahead of schedule and everything we ordered arrived safely and in perfect condition.
Apart from first-fix electrical work and some of the plumbing, I carried out the assembly and fitting work myself during evenings and weekends. Some 7 weeks later the job was complete, and we absolutely love it.
The quality of the product is top notch. All the fittings are well made and every cupboard and drawer closes softly with a touch. I cannot speak highly enough of the way we were looked after by your team throughout the process. Top marks for service standards and knowledgeable staff. The product is of the highest quality, and nobody should have any concerns about ordering their dream kitchen on-line from DIY Kitchens because they can be assured that it will exceed their expectations.
The total cost involved was virtually half of that quoted by the well-known national providers and, in all instances, your quality exceeds that offered by them too. Well done and many thanks DIY Kitchens.'
Rachel & Mike from Cambridge 'We are so pleased with the Kitchen. We couldn’t decide on colours so went for two! Doors are great quality and we also love the worktop from natural stone surfaces.
We heard about DIY Kitchens as my husband has fitted one for a customer and thought the quality was great and very reasonably priced. '
Sarah from Derbyshire 'Very impressed with quality of units and handles. Our installer also commented on the quality of the workmanship. We were recommended DIY kitchens by my sister, after she had her kitchen units from yourselves.'
Darren from East Yorkshire 'Here are some before and after pictures of our kitchen. We heard about DIY kitchens from a family member who got their kitchen from DIY kitchens and recommended you to us.
The kitchen is great quality, good value and looks brilliant.We have recommended DIY kitchens to other people who are thinking of getting a new kitchen.'
Kate from London 'Totally in love with our new kitchen. I looked at a few other kitchen companies but loved that I could have a bespoke colour with DIY kitchens. Also loved that I could plan the kitchen myself using the easy to navigate planner. I’d never done anything like this before but still found it simple to use. I made use of a few of the blog posts that DIY kitchens have done on things like ‘how to build a butler's pantry’ which helped loads. And the butler's pantry is what i get loads of comments on!
I also felt comfortable knowing I could have exactly what I wanted and not thinking that a kitchen designer might be upselling me extras I didn’t need. I had a few queries throughout the planning stages and the customer service team were always really quick to respond.
We’ve also rented it out for photoshoots meaning that we are getting money back on the cost of our kitchen.
We’ve had our kitchen for about 4 months now and can’t imagine life before. It's going to be a really tough year ahead financially, but we're happy knowing that we now have this amazing space to relax in now that we can't afford to go out as much! '
Polly & Chris from Hertfordshire 'We are so in love with our new space. The DIY kitchen planner was easy to use and the support available online made the process quick, fun and painless. We actually ended up visiting the fantastic showroom in Pontefract but really there was no need. The quality of the doors and units is above all that we saw with the competitors. The price tag was also considerably lower. Couldn't be happier!'
Jacqui from St Leonards on Sea 'I was originally going to choose a Howden’s Kitchen because I understand that the builders pref clients/customers to use them for ease if they need to replace kitchen parts; however, over Christmas I had the time to investigate other options. Time well spent. Thankfully, I was able to purchase a better quality kitchen from DIY Kitchens; making sufficient savings, which in-turn allowed me to pay for the majority of the White Goods. Win, Win.
The Builders were concerned; as was I, if things had to be replaced for any reason; because you can’t just pop to DIY Kitchens and change parts as they do with a Howdens Kitchen. DIY Kitchens dealt with replacements swiftly; but it did disrupt the build to a certain extent; some were down to DIY Kitchens and some down to the Kitchen Fitter’s mistake. However, I believe that the Kitchen Fitter was impressed with the quality of DIY Kitchen Units. '
Tracy & Peter from The Peak District 'We are absolutely delighted with our kitchen. It was really easy to plan and we had great help from the customer services team. Our builders were very impressed with the quality of the kitchen and the ease of installation. Our kitchen is fantastic and is admired by all our friends and family. Our son has recently had his new kitchen from DIY kitchens having seen ours.'
Annie from Derby 'Very pleased with our new DIY Kitchens kitchen units & worktops. High quality and looks very impressive.
I heard about DIY Kitchens from my daughter who also had DIY Kitchens kitchen units installed. Loved how they looked so went on her recommendation. You can see from the photos just how amazing it looks. '
Mark from Derbyshire 'A local carpenter told us about you, kitchen quality is superb and the doors are solid. Beautiful finish, best bit was all pre built, only put handles on and everything closes and opens perfectly.'
Glyn from Dorset 'Here are some pictures of my newly installed kitchen. Really happy with the build quality and ease of planning as designed the layout myself on the web planner saving a lot of money compare to other suppliers.
Installed by my carpenter onsite during the extension, which has increased my kitchen size by four. Was 3m x 4m but now 6m x 5.5m.
The delivery was quick, efficient and without issue. So would highly recommend DIY-Kitchens to anyone and have been. Everyone who’s seen the kitchen has commented on the quality of the products.'
Kevin from Louth 'The kitchen is excellent, very impressed with the quality, ease of installation, overall look, ability to customise perfectly to make the most of this very compact kitchen in our Louth AirBnB. '
Tammy from Shropshire 'Excellent quality cabinets. We were able to design a unique and personalised kitchen from DIY kitchens' extensive range of units and colours for our small kitchen extension. We wanted a 2 tone colour kitchen with a colour block for different walls. The cabinets extended into the old kitchen which is now the utility room, housing the washing machine, dryer, ironing board and pantry. Loved the option of the warm wooden interior of the cabinets which look lovely when the cabinet lights come on.
I came across DIY kitchens from a blog. I tried other kitchen suppliers and feel the DIY kitchens model of supporting the customer create their dream kitchen themselves is a very empowering and rewarding process. I have recommended you to everyone I know. Thank you DIY! '
David & Geraldine from Anglesey 'We first heard about DIY Kitchens from a member of staff at a local builders merchant who had already fitted one of your kitchens and he highly recommend that we have a look at them. So we booked an appointment and a hotel for the night and headed over to view the showroom display. We were not disappointed, in fact we were spellbound and the advice/information about the construction, paint finishes and worktops was outstanding.
Upon returning home I set about fine tuning the design of the new kitchen. I wanted to future proof the design by incorporating as many drawers, swing out carousels etc along with built in appliances as we are not getting any younger and arthritis is already taking hold of hips and knees.
DIY Kitchens had all the necessary solutions with drawer packs behind doors, pull out vegetable storage in wire racks along with the full height integrated larder unit.
I have included some photographs of the before, during construction and of course the finished kitchen. I did all the work myself apart from the worktops which was done by Natural Stone Surfaces.
The kitchen units arrived on time and the guys that delivered them were really courteous and careful in bringing them into the bungalow through the patio door.
The units are solidly constructed and the whole kitchen assembly was straight forward and what impressed me the most was, you even supply a small bottle of touch up paint which meant that I could touch up the cut edges of the plinth and the ceiling light that I constructed from the surplus plinth that I ordered.
Everyone who has seen the kitchen says I has a wow factor and are so impressed with the quality of the units, colour combinations etc. which is a credit to DIY Kitchens and their product.
Thanks must also go to the staff who kept us fully informed at every stage from the initial order to the final delivery with regular updates via the support ticket service. Well done and a massive thanks to everyone at DIY Kitchens.'
Will from Buckinghamshire 'Here are some pictures of your Clayton Cashmere kitchen that I fitted.
Kitchen units are excellent quality and I had no issues with fitting. I ordered everything from handles to the worktops and all was very easy to do. Choice of unit sizes and styles were great. Worktops fitted within 6 days after template taken and are also excellent.
Only had an issue with a damaged shelf and creeky draw runner. All were resolved between Christmas and New Year. Can’t fault that! Showroom was the best I’d seen and is worth the drive. All in all very happy. '
Mrs Bridget from West Yorkshire 'We ordered from DIY-Kitchens and we are very pleased with the overall quality of all the units, doors etc (the worktop, handles and appliances were ordered elsewhere). We heard about DIY-Kitchens from a friend who had used the business.'
Andrew from Wigan 'The kitchen is high quality, easy to assemble, with everything you need. Customer service is also great with friendly staff.'
Richard from Doncaster 'Last year I built an extension on my house and when the time came to start looking at kitchens for it I did a lot of searching for recommendations for kitchen companies. I asked builders, kitchen fitters and people I knew who have had new kitchens and nearly everyone said go to DIY kitchens for quality and price, so I did and I’m extremely happy with it.
I couldn’t be happier with the kitchen itself and DIY kitchens as a company.
The quality of finish, materials and fixtures and fittings is 10 out of 10! From the 1st visit to the amazing showroom, order process, delivery to the final fitting was great. I highly recommend DIY kitchens! '
Darren from Bedfordshire 'Here are photos of our kitchen. Very happy with the final outcome. Pleasure doing business.'
Tracey from Conwy 'I heard of DIY Kitchens through my Brother who lives in Dorset. Myself and my husband visited the showroom and were very impressed. Our home is a Welsh Longhouse dating back to 1709 with no straight walls and was a total refurbishment. The kitchen installed by my husband has finally been done. '
Stephanie from Sussex 'Firstly I would like to thank DIY-Kitchens for helping our kitchen dream become reality!
Fantastic prices, great choice, amazing quality and superb service all round!
I have sent standard pictures and also pictures with feature lights on to so show you guys our true transformation and have also uploaded a couple of before pictures (not renovated since the 1960s). My husband tiled our floor and my husband and father fitted our kitchen.
I found you guys online, however since found out about other friends and colleagues who have also gone through you and recommended you myself to many people. '
Richard from Somerset 'Here are some before and after photos. Many thanks - absolutely fantastic.'
Steve from Hampshire 'I originally found DIY kitchens website by searching for kitchens on the internet, and DIY kitchens was subsequently recommended by a local builder.
We were very happy with our old kitchen layout, but we wanted to modernise it with lighter colours, but we didn't want to have to strip it back to a shell. DIY kitchens suited us perfectly as they have an extensive range of cabinets and drawers in a variety of sizes, colours and styles and their solid wood doors are available at sensible prices. We were able to select modern pan drawers to replace many of our old base units while retaining the overall layout of our kitchen, which allowed me to remove and replace existing runs of cabinets and wall units in phases. This enabled us to continue using the kitchen while we were modernising it.
We are extremely pleased with the quality of the carcasses, the drawers and the doors and the fact that everything arrives fully assembled, even with doors attached, makes installation very quick and simple.
My wife is thrilled with the lovely Linwood Sage Green solid wood doors and drawer fronts and I was extremely pleased with the way in which I was able to build up and submit my order on-line, without having to commit to a deposit before final planning.
DIY kitchen support team were very helpful both on-line and when contacted by telephone. I have already recommended DIY Kitchens to a number of people who are considering kitchen renovations.'
Debbie from Derbyshire 'We love our Stanbury Cobham Blue kitchen! Thank you, great quality and service.'
Julie from Norfolk 'The units arrived at the time stipulated with a really helpful delivery crew. We fitted this ourselves having done diy installations before. There were a couple of issues with items delivered but these were resolved really quickly with the after sales team. The quality of both the carcasses and doors are excellent. Therefore I would wholeheartedly recommend diy-kitchens.'
Ludmila from Monmouthshire 'Here are some pics of my fabulous new kitchen...I love it!!
The units are well made, solid and nicely finished. I have a first-class kitchen at a fraction of the price I would have paid elsewhere. My builders were impressed with the quality and ease of installation and I'm sure they will be recommending DIY Kitchens to other customers.
I found DIY Kitchens purely by chance through searching for kitchen ideas online. Definitely a great find and a great service. Thank you.'
Craig from Oxfordshire 'Here are some pictures of our new DIY kitchen installation. Best quality kitchen we have fitted and we have fitted quite a few in other properties over the years. First heard about you on Instagram @my_best_laid_plans'
Kevin & Sharon from Lancs 'Very impressed with the service we received right from the planning stage through to delivery.
Having selected online we then wanted to check out the units in real life, so had a day at the showroom, very professional set up and we'll worth it.
High praise from our own fitter who was really impressed with the quality of the cabinets and the internal fixings. We had one slight issue which was resolved immediately and without question.
We initial intended getting our worktops locally bit were let down at the last minute, we then sourced them through DIY and they were brilliant, fast and professional. The kitchen has been in 6 months now and we smile every day. '
Nick from Rochester 'Receiving fully assembled units with doors on made the job so much easier. The units are great quality with Blum hardware all round. Customer service and quality control were excellent too.'
Mark & Denise from Kent 'Here are some photos of my new kitchen, completed in December 2021.'
Andrea from Hertfordshire 'We love our kitchen from you, the quality and finish is excellent and we have recommended you to many of our friends.
We chose the shaker style kitchen in cashmere colour which is a lovely soft grey. We think it is very versatile and will last for years.
We found your company online whilst looking for kitchen companies but we also had heard from another friend that your kitchens were very good.'
Mel from Leeds 'DIY Kitchens was recommended to us by a work colleague. The showroom was a great help to us in deciding on our final choices. The quality of all items and worktops was unbeatable. All staff from sales to delivery and after sales were knowledgeable and helpful at every instance. Well done.'
Arwel & Anne from North Wales '
After many weeks trying to get local kitchen suppliers to finalise a price for our kitchen design, my wife resorted to the internet and found DIY-Kitchens.
We were impressed by all of the useful and helpful information on the website, together the wonderful reviews from customers.
The kitchen planner was downloaded and within a few hours, we had our new kitchen planned out and we could see from the planner that we were within our budget, as the price totalled up as we added our cabinets.
DIY-Kitchens offered a far wider choice of cabinets, worktops and fittings than many of our local suppliers.
Contact with DIY-Kitchens during the planning stage was helpful and friendly and gave us the confidence to proceed. They checked our design, and we went ahead, very pleased with ourselves on the ease of the whole process.
The kitchen arrived on time, and we were delighted with the robust well-made units that we found easy to install ourselves. It just oozed quality.
The end result was a kitchen beyond our dreams and when friends and family call round they are equally impressed with DIY-Kitchens. We have recommended DIY-Kitchens to all our friends and family if they are looking for a new kitchen….and even if they are not! Thank You to all of the helpful staff at DIY-Kitchens.'
Chris from Dorset '
I found DIY kitchens from searching online and after exploring options for my new kitchen. I worked in architecture and so had a good idea of what I wanted.
What I found really easy was the online visualiser, I was able to quickly put together what I wanted and get a price. I actually only bought the kitchen units from DIY kitchens as I had already sourced worktops from a local fitter.
It was this flexibility that actually makes DIY kitchens a great supplier. I had explored other kitchen suppliers but diy came out the most cost effective.
When it came to fitting the kitchen, the units came preassembled, which made things really easy. I had help from a family member, who was a carpenter and had fitted hundreds of kitchens from various main kitchen suppliers (the ones I had actually got prices from) but he was so impressed with the quality, he now always looks to recommend DIY kitchens to his customers.
I opted for many of the upgrades such as soft close hinges, drawer sides etc., which were all good value for money. Everything was easy to install and no issues when fitting. '
Sarah from Bristol 'Here are some photos of our kitchen. A Norton Bespoke. I absolutely love this timeless classic style, which I think looks very fresh with the white worktops.
The kitchen is a split level galley so not huge. My goal was to future proof the layout with lots of drawers, incorporate new built-in appliances eg, microwave and wine fridge, and achieve maximum possible worksurfaces. Your reduced depth cabinets also enabled us to maximise storage under the breakfast bar.
We’re very pleased with the results. As is Dudley our dachshund! Thank you so much to your staff who spent a lot of time helping my husband at the design stage! '
Laura from The Wirral 'Excellent quality and I love my new kitchen. Heard about DIY from our builder and friends'
Dawn from Essex 'I'm extremely pleased with my new kitchen. I have the Dove Grey Malton shaker. Love the choice of doors in both colours and style and also the colour of interior units. I chose a matching light grey colour. '
Kumail from Harrow 'The quality feels great. We were very pleased with the order. We had a couple of damaged doors but this was resolved by the support team. '
Greg & Hilary from Warwick 'Excellent kitchen in our newly, extended living area. Very pleased with design, quality, use ability, ease of assembly, cost and help and advice by DIY kitchen personnel.
We love the whole kitchen but especially the larder and the tower storage unit. These 2 units have allowed us to move all small appliances and foodstuffs into the kitchen area providing ease of access. Surfaces and splash backs are quartz. Flooring is Ambiance washed oak. Definitely recommend.'
Edward from Redditch 'I have self-fitted 5 kitchens over the years, all from major high street suppliers and this kitchen was the easiest and most straightforward to fit.
The units are top rate and as they are self-coloured, there was no need for expensive and awkward end panels. The units are solid, well-made and sturdy. The worktops are superb and were fitted by a pair of great guys. We were recommended to you by a friend of my daughter in London, we have also passed on your details to others since fitting the kitchen.'
Paul from Dorset 'We are extremely pleased with the quality and build quality of the kitchen. The real oak doors are beautifully made and the natural finish provides a real warmth to the kitchen.
We are particularly pleased with the curved storage cupboards which provides a really special touch to the kitchen and always attached attention when we show people are kitchen. Another feature of the unit that particularly impressed us, was the supplied draw units which feel very robust and store all matters of items for years to come.'
Kay from Sheffield 'I was recommended your company by a relative. The quality and finish of the units and doors is great, and the kitchen fitters we used were very impressed. '
Jackie from Norfolk 'Not a big kitchen but now a gorgeous kitchen - Love the neutral Mussel colour and style of the Mussel Linwood range - husband has fitted Howdens, Kestral and John Lewis to name a few and was very impressed with the build quality of the units - matched with Natural Stone Surface worktop. Highly recommend DIY Kitchens ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you DIY Kitchen, you’ve made me very happy 😊 '
Les from Dorset 'The kitchen was fitted by Weeks Kitchen Installations and they (Father and Son) were really impressed and will be recommending your kitchens in the future. We are really happy we chose to buy from your goodselves. We liked the idea of sample doors and handles, which was very useful in our decision making.
The quality is amazing, in fact the fitter said it was as good, if not better than some other kitchen manufactures. The price saving I think was about £3,000, against other suppliers. Any problems and there were only few, were handle quickly and professionally.'
Samuel & Stephanie from Hampshire 'We brought our first home in March 2021, which required a full renovation. Samuel is a carpenter and has carried out all the works on our home, including designing and fitting the kitchen. Within his job, he’s fitted numerous kitchens from various manufacturers and has always felt particularly impressed with the quality of DIY kitchen units, and especially for the reasonable prices.
The kitchen came preassembled, making the fit easier and less time consuming. The customer service team were friendly, efficient and quick to resolve any issues (though of which were limited compared to experiences with other suppliers).
We plan to fit new kitchens into future renovation projects and will not hesitate to use DIY Kitchens again. Similarly, we’ve already had the pleasure of recommending them to neighbours and customers and look forward to seeing their end projects too.'
Sally from Cambridge 'The quality of the units is excellent. My kitchen fitted said the quality and make of the units is far superior to some German expensive makes of kitchen he has used before, for half the price. I am very pleased with my new kitchen and would recommend DIY Kitchens without a doubt to anyone.'
Kimberley from Oxfordshire 'We have been so impressed with the kitchen we ordered, it was a fraction of the cost of other kitchen sellers so we were a little dubious about the quality and whether we would receive the same level of customer service, also we were a little nervous about ordering the wrong thing but we had absolutely no reason to be concerned at all, the customer service was fantastic, they checked through our order and let us know if they had any recommendations for changes, they were very prompt with updates on the production of our kitchen.
All the cupboards came preassembled, so we just needed to be unwrapped and slot them into place!! Our kitchen is not the biggest (about 2.5m square) but the range of cupboards and accessories available made it so easy to make the best use of the space we have!
The kitchen, once fitted, has had no problems at all. The doors all have soft close catches and the draws run so smoothly. So many people don't believe the worktop is not real wood, it's such good quality. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone!! '
Lucie from West London 'We absolutely love our DIY kitchen, we heard about them online so didn’t hesitate to order some door samples. We were very impressed with the quality so next step was to plan the kitchen using their excellent ‘online kitchen planner’. This was great fun, playing around with different kitchen layouts and once we were happy with our final design we got the kitchen priced up - which was a significant amount cheaper than the other kitchen companies we had gone to. I recommend them to all my family and friends and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. It also feel greats buying from a family run British company.'
Keith from Hampshire 'The kitchen was high quality for the price and other than wrongly fitted runners on one unit (replaced in a week) and minor touch up work there were no real issues. The office and visiting technician were all terrific and quick to handle everything. Thanks DIY, we would use again. '
Annelise from Leeds 'We were recommended DIY kitchens by our joiner and were more than pleased with the quality of the kitchen and service we received. It was great to be able to look around the showroom to see the different styles and quality in person.
We decided to choose a shaker kitchen and wanted a navy colour. The standard colour choices were great and the quality of the units are brilliant. Our delivery arrived as planned and helpfully all the units are pre-built making the kitchen install even easier! We needed to speak with after sales a couple of times and the staff were more than helpful. We would definitely recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Hayley from Hertfordshire 'Sizing, colour, pattern and price of the kitchen is amazing. Any questions I had were answered swiftly by the knowledgeable customer service team, which was very helpful as measuring up was quite nerve wracking!
The delivery was on time and came with everything required including spare drawer holders. '
Faye from Bedfordshire 'I wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my heron great Malton kitchen. Fantastic service and quality!'
Zara from Bury St Edmunds 'We had undertaken an extension and renovation project and had a tight budget for our kitchen. As my birthday was in May, it was my request to travel to the DIY showroom as my birthday treat! I had taken a look at the online website and planner and was very impressed with what I had seen online. Thankfully my husband agreed and we made the 4 hour journey to the show room which was absolutely worth it. We were blown away by the price, selection of finishes, colour choice and the quality. We ordered shortly after our visit and we were kept informed regarding expected delivery.
The quality of the kitchen is top class. Our independent kitchen fitters passed comment on how well made the doors and units were. We are delighted with our Norton kitchen (Dakar). I now have more space than I could ever need with regards to both worktop and storage.
I would not hesitate to recommend DIY kitchens. They simply cannot be beaten when it comes to quality, affordability and ease of ordering. '
Samantha from Sheffield 'Here are some before and after pictures of our house extension and kitchen.'
Darren from Rotherham 'It was us who appeared on Dream Kitchen and Bathrooms with Mark Millar. Series 2, episode 1.
The overall impression was good, heavy kitchen units. Well made mechanisms such as closers, hinges and storage solutions. In love with our larder unit and gin cupboard! You were recommended by the fitter, who is a friend. Found no reason to go anywhere else. Great web support.'
Steve from Hempstead 'The kitchen looks great and easy to fit as already prebuilt, soft close is great.'
Nathan from Suffolk 'We knew about you from a Google search and your good reviews. Great service and a kitchen I am very happy with. Will definitely use again.'
Shelly from Hertfordshire 'Here are some photos of our kitchen once it was installed, we went for the Norton bespoke painted we absolutely LOVE it and are so so happy, we’ve recommended you to many of our friends who we know are looking at new kitchens.
I’ve included a before shot too. Our carpenter used the remaining end panels to make a bespoke unit on top of the fridge and blocked in above the units. '
Sally form Bognor Regis '
I had had visits from two of your high street competitors and for one reason or another I didn’t feel happy with their advice. I was adamant that I wanted a corner hob as it was really the best placement and I was continually being told that this wasn’t possible, so I took to the internet and did copious amounts or research ( I’m afraid to say I’m a bit of a research nerd).
It was at this point I discovered DIY Kitchens. I contacted you and I started a lovely email relationship with a person called, if my memory serves me well, Louise, I explained my problem and straight away she advised me of different ways I could approach the situation. For me one of the best parts was having continuity, being able to correspond with the same person every time gave me a great deal of confidence that I was being looked after and I had chosen the best company to provide my kitchen.
When I told my kitchen fitter that I was having DIY Kitchens he was very pleased and reassured me that I would not be disappointed.
Well to cut a very long story short it turned out I wasn’t disappointed, far from it, the quality is excellent, all the units fitted perfectly and the finish is beyond my expectation. Having a rather unusual shaped kitchen meant that I needed a diagonal corner unit and also angled end units. The work tops had to be cut to match the end units and this was done perfectly.
My kitchen has since been admired by many people and I’m always happy to say who provided it... '
Heather from West Sussex 'We chose Linwood Cobham Blue with Natural Lancaster Oak cabinets for our bar area, and are really enjoying using it. We are very impressed with the quality of the cabinets and doors, and love how the antique copper bar handles tone in with the Iroko worktop.'
Rebecca from York 'I am absolutely thrilled with my Stanbury Dove Grey kitchen from DIY kitchens. After looking for sometime at other kitchen companies I felt DIY offered the quality, style and functionality I was looking for in a kitchen. Sturdy and stylish the quality of the units was what stood out for me the most and I would not hesitate to choose DIY kitchen products again. The process of designing the kitchen was easy, with fantastic online customer support, to the smooth stress free delivery service I enjoyed every step of the way. Thank you DIY kitchens, I now have the kitchen of my dreams!'
Elizabeth from Yarm 'Overall the quality of the kitchen is excellent, the service and help was also excellent, which I knew from hearing about DIY kitchens from my sister. '
David from Leeds 'We have been satisfied with the quality and the price of the kitchen units we ordered last year and with their use over the past six months. We are particularly impressed with the pull-out larder unit and the swing out base corner unit in both finish and practicality.
We heard about DIY Kitchens from my niece, who ad already ordered a kitchen from you. We made about six trips to the show room and received a lot of helpful advice from friendly staff.'
Gary & Tracey from Chatburn 'DIY kitchens were recommended to us by a friend. We couldn't be more delighted with our Norton Dove Grey kitchen. I have always fitted my own kitchens and used different well known suppliers, this is the best quality kitchen l have fitted. Excellent quality, well built and backed up with great customer service. Would highly recommend. '
Darren & Danielle from Staffordshire 'The kitchen quality is absolutely superb, the units are solid, well made, sturdy legs and everything coming ready built was a massive help. I was particularly impressed with the swing out larder and pull out bin units.
The best thing however was the customer service (especially an assistant named Dan) helping me out with what I needed to build a bespoke set of secret doors into our utility room and also our corner larder pull out coffee station!
The doors are fantastic quality and we were really happy with how the bespoke colour turned out on the island.
We heard about DIY kitchens purely through Instagram (building ribbons) after a competitor quoted us a silly price. Everyone on Instagram who used DIY had nothing but great things to say and the price was such good value and allowed us to stick within our renovation budget.'
Anna from Warrington 'We ordered a Stanbury Cashmere kitchen aand couldn't be more happy with the kitchen. The delivery went extremely smoothly and on time and the delivery team were fantastic, very polite, fast and friendly.
We didn't have any problem with the installation - all the units were in perfect condition and the packaging was great. The worktop was installed in 7 days. I've been using my kitchen now for several months and I'm very happy with it. The quality is amazing and it looks expensive.
I have lots of compliments for the kitchen and my friends can't believe the price. My favourite part is my integrated cupboards - it was easy to compose beautiful fitted wall of cabinets like it belonged to the house from the very beginning. They are spacious and overall really useful.
All in all, 10 out of 10 and I can't recommend DIY Kitchens highly enough. '
Irene from Hampshire 'I changed a room that was a storage utility room that was originally a garage into my superb kitchen in Malton Dove Grey.
I used to work in interior design and have designed and help order 3 previous kitchens for friends and family. It took me 9 months to finalise the design on my own.
I used DIY Kitchens because I used to live in West Yorkshire and love the quality and superb selection if units. All kitchen fitters love fitting your kitchens!'
Alice & Pete from Bedfordshire 'We were really impressed with the quality of the kitchen we received. The units and worktop are sturdy and very reasonably priced compared to other competitors.
The units come pre-assembled, so we were able to install the kitchen ourselves, even as DIY novices (without getting divorced!).
Overall we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new kitchen!'
Christine from Cambridge 'Everything I wanted in a kitchen, the colour and quality of the units are beautiful. I live in an old house and need a style that fitted in with the age of the house, but still looked stylish. I had a budget to work with to refit the whole kitchen, which I was able to keep to and still have good quality units.
I had many virtual kitchen designs from different companies, DIY kitchens offered the best price for the quality of their kitchens. I booked a show room visit which helped a lot in deciding which styles I liked, I then ordered a few samples to make my final decision on style and colour, everyone was helpful and polite (even when I made a mistake).
I enjoy spending time in my new kitchen, it's my chill out place in the house. '
Natasha from Sutton Coldfield 'This is the second kitchen I have purchased from DIY kitchens and would do so again. After initially finding the company online around 2012, I checked out the quality by visiting the factory. High quality doors and units at a fraction of the price; this time I used the online design planner and had my design checked before going ahead. I made a couple of mistakes on the first kitchen but these were resolved within a couple of days. This time a couple of items were lightly damaged but no quibbles about exchanging. Thank you for another beautiful kitchen.'
Rebecca from Halifax 'I absolutely love my shaker styler kitchen from you. It complements my parquet floor perfectly. The worktops, units and doors are of such high quality - so easy to clean and hardwearing, especially with a 2 year old who likes to wipe paint and food all over them! I love the space-saving cupboard space and the integrated design of the doors resulting in a sleek look. '
Sue & Steve from Lancashire 'We renovated our bungalow last year and the kitchen was fitted in September. Quality is amazing, we love the colours. Visited the showroom first which was huge but used online planner. Very easy to use and the help and advice given from Briony was terrific. Customer service and delivery perfect. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. '
Ian from Leeds 'Absolutely superb quality. The 22mm doors make all the difference compared to other suppliers like Howdens. This is our dream kitchen for our forever home so we went for the Linwood bespoke painted range as my wife wanted a very particular green. We are really pleased with the outcome - not had one issue since installed and only hear wonderful comments from visitors.'
Olivia from West Yorkshire 'Here are our kitchen and utility photos We are very happy with the quality of the kitchen. We heard about you through a friend who had also bought a kitchen from you and was also very impressed with the quality and value for money of the kitchen.'
Christine from Notts 'Our kitchen was installed into our new kitchen/diner last year. It's only small but we love it.
We heard about DIY kitchens from our daughter who bought one in 2020. The showroom is the best we'd ever been to.....tidy, organised, clear and comprehensive.
We're delighted with the quality of our kitchen. I especially like the large drawers which make access to items do easy. The after sales service was excellent. Staff were very helpful even though I'd made a couple of errors when ordering. All in all a great choice.'
Jay from Liverpool 'I went for Linwood and love the quality and grain effect. The units are rock solid, which made fitting the kitchen a doddle (I'm an amateur DIYer and did it myself).The price we saved by ordering through DIY-Kitchens enabled us to buy quartz worktops and a range cooker.
The huge range of sizes for units and doors was also a big factor - we've made maximum use of our space, fully tailored to our needs.'
David Heather from Inverness 'We absolutely love our new kitchen. The ordering was straightforward and it was comforting to know that our order was checked as we had forgotten to add a couple of bits. The delivery was quick and the men very friendly. Thank you so much.'
Sarah and Darren from Warwick 'We chose the Norton range, with units in carbon and dove grey. We also chose the white sparkle quartz work surface which is so elegant.
We’d been recommended to DIY kitchens by a friend and we were hugely impressed, from our initial visit to your showroom, through the design and ordering process and to delivery and after care. The installation was so simple and the quality of the units is just outstanding. We have received so many compliments about our beautiful kitchen and been told by many friends they have kitchen envy so we make sure we recommend DIY kitchens to them all!!
The kitchen has transformed our home. Previously it was a narrow galley style kitchen so we knocked through the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to create an open space then installed glass doors that open fully to create a stunning dining kitchen, great for entertaining. '
Mrs Harris from Buckinghamshire 'Our builder recommended DIY Kitchens because of the superior build quality saying it was better than most on the market. We were particularly thrilled with the good value of the worktop. '
Lou from Harpenden 'We had been on the lookout for a kitchen for a couple of years and constantly inspired by what we saw ans they were nearly always DIY Kitchens, so when it came to investigating further, they were our first go to company.
From the start, we were very impressed with their website, ease of using and information that could be gleaned to give us a good indication of costs. When we decided to progress further, customer services were very knowledgeable and helpful. We didn’t use the online planning services as we had already got on board a kitchen designer as we were changing plumbing, electrics etc around a lot.
We ordered several samples (refundable upon ordering) and were immediately impressed with the quality (and colour.) Based on all of the above we decided to place the order.
We couldn’t be happier. The quality of the cupboards are fantastic, we love the two colours together. With so many different cupboards available we have exactly the kitchen we had dreamed if, a bespoke kitchen for a fraction of the cost. We are six months in since finishing it and we are thrilled with how it works, looks and stands up to family life. Couldn’t recommend DIY more. '
Dave from Tyne & Wear 'I heard about DIY Kitchens on an online forum. Being quite particular about what we wanted from the kitchen and needing to maximise space, while keeping to a tight budget, the range of units available and the ability to pick exactly what we needed for ourselves worked really well.
A lot of time went into the design, but it was well worth it in the end, and we're really happy with the finished kitchen (though there are still a few little jobs that need finishing!). The quality of the units and fittings is excellent. '
Sasha from Keyingham 'I had seen DIY kitchens on a YouTube video by a guy called Nick Morris who used yourselves for property developing and he states that the quality and price of you’re kitchens is far superior to other companies. I myself have to agree, the price we paid and the quality we received is far superior to what we looked at in other well known companies in the area.
The door quality’s is 22mm thick mdf which is a lot thicker and sturdier then everywhere else we had looked at, and it’s all quality including the units and the hinges. My boyfriend Rees is a joiner and we fitted the kitchen together which was actually very easy! Rees is quiet picky with the quality of the products we used in the house, but he loves the kitchen and it met his very high standards! (Even the hinges).
Even down to visiting the showroom was a dream, all the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful and there were plenty of refreshments on hand!
We also purchased a solid oak butchers block worktop from yourselves which we believe takes the kitchen to another level, it makes you feel as though you’re in a posh cottage in the country side! All of our friends and family are jealous of the kitchen and they say the wood worktops even make it smell good! I have since recommended yourselves to anyone that has spoke to me about a kitchen. '
Jude from Manchester 'We were just about to order a replacement for our kitchen when Covid struck and the first lockdown started. We had to rethink our plans, and searching online brought me to the DIY Kitchens website.
I used the online planning tool to choose the best layout for our kitchen - a very narrow galley. We were able to make the most of our space with a mixture of under-counter units, wall units and a huge larder cupboard.
The kitchen fitters hadn't fitted a kitchen from DIY Kitchens before but they were very impressed with the quality of the units and it didn't take them long to transform the room. I've sent a few photos of before and after.
We found there are lots of photos of larger kitchens out there, but not as much to show what can be done in a smaller galley space. I hope this is helpful!'
Sarah from Formby 'We had taken on a huge refurbishment of a small dated 50s bungalow, turning it into a beautiful modern family home. Whilst every aspect of the build was financially tight looking for a kitchen within our ever-decreasing budget was proving difficult, that was until we found DIY kitchens online.
I didn’t go to view the showroom only relied on the excellent reviews from previous customers. From start to finish DIY kitchens were amazing.
Part of our kitchen was a solid oak door, ordered in an unprimed unsanded finish, our joiner was very dubious, saying for the price quoted the doors would not be solid oak, so we sent for a sample. Knowing we had to alter one the doors to fit a difficult space we decided to reduce to size of the sample door to see if it was solid oak and yes it was !!!
The planning & ordering process for the kitchen was made very easy with the help of the online planner, excellent customer service staff with a full knowledge of all products. I would highly recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone who wants to have a quality kitchen, supplied and delivered on time, full customer support and above all to save money compared to any high street kitchen company.
Thank you DIY Kitchens we will be ordering from you again for the walk-in pantry and utility. '
Polly from Bristol 'We have been renovating our beautiful Victoria family home for the last 18 months! We have been documenting our journey on our Instagram page.
We were so pleased with every aspect of working with DIY kitchens from the support the to helping order, to the delivery and beautiful quality of our kitchen. We chose a bespoke colour and it is just perfect. We miss ordered a couple of things and the support team sent them out so quickly, meaning it didn’t delay our install.
I have recommended diy kitchens to literally anyone who will listen. We get so many amazing comments and compliments about our kitchen and it really is perfect. We heard about diy kitchens from a friend that used you guys and got a beautiful kitchen too!
We are so pleased with our kitchen and how it turned out. It will be amazing to see our children grow and play in this space. So happy we found you guys. Thank you 😊. '
Gary from Trowbridge 'Here are a few photos of my kitchen. Great design and quality. I heard about DIY-Kitchens from a friend who had previously bought a kitchen from you.'
Laura from Glasgow 'Very happy with the quality and just love the Dakar colour. Have had lots of compliments. Initially heard of you via Instagram, when I asked a blogger about her kitchen and colour! '
Nick from London 'Here are some photos of my kitchen renovation and utility room. So pleased with how it looks, thank you! '
Pam from Pontefract 'Here are some photos of our beautiful kitchen for your use. Before & after.'
Gary from Widnes 'You were recommended by a friend whose kitchen we were really impressed with.
We have guests often and they are always impressed with the kitchen. So pleased with quality, it's as good as other recognised brands of kitchens but a lot less money!Many thanks!'
Frankie from Surrey 'Thank you! We are delighted with our new kitchen. It is a Linwood Shaker style with a combination of Cobham Blue and Tern White units. It looks fantastic with bar handles in stainless steel effect. We especially love the curved units in the corner, the deep drawers for easy storage of pans and plates and the island.
We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend and after visiting to see their new kitchen, we were happy to go ahead with our order. Our own new kitchen has been admired by several friends, some of whom have subsequently decided to buy their new kitchen from you too!
Well done for providing a great product and a great after-sales service.'
Rachel from Shropshire 'Great quality, love the colour selection. Family had their kitchen from DIY kitchens so was recommended.'
Emma from Durham 'Loved the concept of designing my own kitchen without any sales pressures and cutting out the middle person. I loved that I could add as many or as little extras to my kitchen. Choices were amazing! Easy to work out the cost too. Contacting for advice was easy via mail too and additional orders after were accepted and arrived quickly. Very impressed.
Was easy to plan, I used the scaled squares and printed this and the unit patterns out. Arranged until I was satisfied with the line up of units and then made my purchase.
I heard about DIY kitchens when looking in forums discussing quality of kitchens from Wrens/ Magnet/ Howdons. Many people kept mentioning DIY kitchens, so I googled your site and the rest is history!
Great quality units with strong backs, ready made, painted flawlessly, beautiful oak worktops. I’m utterly delighted with the high quality and finish. Everyone who has visited and admired my kitchen and asked where we purchased. Your site has been shared to a lot of family and friends! '
Sophie from Newcastle Upon Tyne 'Overall the kitchen is amazing! The quality of everything is great. It was so easy to fit ourselves which is a bonus and also came in good time. The in cupboard storage is fab to as we’re utilising the empty spaces which had before. We knocked through the wall, down into the back room, to extend the kitchen. We also changed the french doors to 3 meter bifolds, which allow so much natural light in!'
Colin from Retford 'I'm very pleased that I chose Diy Kitchens to supply My new kitchen. I was impressed with the free design tool and support team who assisted with the design prior to order.
Ordering online was a simple process. Although we had a slight delay with delivery. I was kept updated by the customer support team.
I was further impressed when the kitchen was delivered. The quality of the doors and cabinets were second to non. Far superior the the previous kitchens I have had supplied by other manufacturers. Fitting was made made easier due to the cabinets being pre-assembled. I would definitely recommend Diy Kitchens.'
Elizabeth from South Lanarkshire 'Our kitchen was installed in August 2021 and we love it. We heard about diy kitchens via family and were initially worried about ordering online without seeing the kitchen itself. After seeing a sample door the quality seemed good and we went ahead. The customer service was great, helping to make sure we ordered all the components we needed, but also making sure we didn't over order items we didn't need.
Compared to other kitchens the price was excellent and we couldn't match the oak doors anywhere else close to the price. Delivery was easy and returns of any flawed product was also straightforward. Thanks diy kitchens, we're really happy with the end result.'
Jane from Wirral 'We love the quality of our Norton white kitchen. The doors are really solid and all the drawer mechanisms and soft closers make it look and feel like a much more expensive kitchen! Also had great customer service when needing to change parts of my order and delivery was very professional.'
Mike & Donna from Gloucester 'It took us a long time deciding on the style of our new kitchen and we had looked at other companies but kept coming back to DIY Kitchens. We had some sample door fronts sent us and we were impressed with the quality and price.
The website was very easy to use and the planning tool to design the layout of the kitchen and be able to visualise before buying was really helpful. It was very simple to order and we always had a prompt and helpful response to any questions we had.
We fitted the kitchen ourself and with the units coming fully assembled it made the job so much easier. Your team did a wonderful job fitting the worktops for us.
We love the new look of the kitchen, it was exactly what we had wanted. We also bought some of the little extras for the interior of the cupboards and upgraded the worktop as the price was well within our budget. Something we had not be able to do with the other companies. Thoroughly recommend to others. Thank you so much. '
Rachel & Martin from Pontefract 'We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend we had visited after her kitchen installation. She told us that the price and quality would not be beaten and she was highly delighted with her kitchen. We could see it was great quality so we decided to use DIY kitchens for our up coming renovation.
We visited the showroom which luckily for us was under 5 miles away. However, when we got there we were amazed to find there were people who had travelled hours from all areas of the uk, including Liverpool, Wales and Hampshire! Apparently DIY kitchens' reputation had travelled far and wide. The showroom was beautiful.
We wanted a traditional kitchen with a modern twist. After a bit of advice from the local team on site we ordered the Stanbury Heron Grey. The order process was a bit lengthy but very precise and luckily we had our fitter help us out with the sizes etc.
All the units arrived on time, with really robust packaging and a quality delivery team. We unpacked them all and found they were all top quality and in perfect condition. The reviews had proven to be correct. The best in the UK.
We absolutely love our new kitchen and would recommend DIY kitchens to anyone. '
Rebecca & Shaun from Derby 'We are delighted with our gorgeous diy kitchen. The units came fully built and are solid and great quality. We are very pleased with the overall finish it is what we expected and more after visiting your fantastic show room. '
Lynda & Derek from Kent 'After researching all the big named kitchen companies we came across diy kitchens as highly recommended by various sources, so decided to take a look. The transparency of pricing was something we really appreciated, along with the ability to play around with your planning tool to design a kitchen that perfectly suited our requirements and budget. The choice of unit sizes and types is vast and so helpful when planning. After using your excellent sample service we opted for the solid wood Linwood range in cashmere.
We are over the moon with the finished kitchen. The planning stage took a while but it was well worth it as we now have a fantastic kitchen that not only looks high end, but one that works perfectly for us.
Our kitchen work was carried out in October 2021, knocking through a supporting wall to make a kitchen diner to replace our 30 year old galley kitchen and lounge diner. This was our kitchen fitters first experience of a diy kitchen kitchen. He was extremely impressed with the quality of the units and just how much we got for our money, which included lots of pull out units, drawers and a Le Mans corner unit.
We found your website very user friendly with lots of great advice and guidance. Any queries which we had that weren’t answered on the website were dealt with promptly and efficiently under your support ticket system. We felt confident and fully informed by the time we placed the order, safe in the knowledge that someone at diy kitchens would check it over and raise any obvious mistakes with us.
Our delivery was made late on the Sunday evening, at the end of the week scheduled, and the drivers were very thorough and efficient. We opted to check everything the following day. There was some minor damage to a couple of the doors but, using the ticket system to raise this issues was very straightforward and items were exchanged in a matter of days without question.
It was wonderful to see our careful planning pay off when everything fitted perfectly and we have ended up with the dream kitchen that we had envisaged. Everyone who sees it has been extremely impressed with the quality and the look. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend diy kitchens to anyone and in fact we have already done so. '
John from Stafford 'We are highly delighted with this kitchen as it looks fantastic and the quality of everything is exceptional. We were recommended to try yourselves by a friend and are glad we did.'
Jade From Northampton 'We love our new kitchen! The quality of the cabinetry and hardware surpassed all our expectations and we have been able to create our desired look on a fraction of the budget. We recommend DIY Kitchens to everyone!'
Sharon from Derbyshire 'I am absolutely thrilled with my kitchen, I can honestly say it's the best kitchens I have ever had fitted, this is the eighth kitchen I've had over the years.
The quality is top notch, and the worktops are great, unbelievable for the price. DIY kitchens was recommended to me by the fitter I used he couldn't praise them highly enough. As it's his job you can imagine how many kitchens he's fitted. '
Ken from Herefordshire 'We chose DIY Kitchens after getting several quotes from national kitchen suppliers & also some local ones that supplied & fitted German units, we then received samples of your doors & this confirmed our choice as they were better quality at a lower price.
One other factor was your large selection of the unit sizes plus the interior colours matched the doors etc, something none of the national suppliers did. Once we got the hang of the planner we were able to get a kitchen that suited us & not just one easy to design as we needed to house our existing washing machine & tumble dryer, we found that the decorative side panels & individual doors were perfect for this. We did have a few issues with some damaged units but this was easily sorted & the replacement units delivered quickly.
All in all very happy with the finished result, especially as I was able to fit it myself making a considerable saving on some of the other quotes. '
David from Berkhamsted 'The build quality of the units, doors and all fitting accessories is first class. The service and advice we received from DIYKitchens before finally ordering was excellent and they have been efficient and helpful all follow-up communication.'
Lucy from Suffolk '
My overall impression of our DIY kitchen is that I’m thrilled to bits; the quality is superb, the bespoke paint colour is a perfect match. Our fitter said it was one of the best quality kitchens he’s ever installed, and lots of our trades people commented on what good quality it was during the course of the whole renovation.
I also purchased my quartz worktop via yourselves because it worked out the best value for money of any quote I had, and made the difference between being able to afford quartz, or having to use laminate. I was really impressed from start to finish with the whole experience of buying from DIY Kitchens; we never visited the showroom but felt comfortable ordering having ordered various sample doors and reading many positive reviews of the quality of the cabinets.
The only hair-raising experience was the kitchen being delivered in the last slot of the week; meaning it arrived on Sunday teatime - with the fitter due at 8am the following day! But the customer service team were good at reassuring us it was on the van, and would arrive in time - and the delivery guys were meticulous at ensuring everything was present and correct in time for the fitting to start. Without DIY Kitchens I would have had to compromise on lots of aspects of the kitchen, and wouldn’t now have the kitchen of my dreams, so thank you DIY!'
Julie from Lancashire 'I saw and advert on the motorway and looked on your website, reviews were good, visited the showroom and ordered. I had a joiner visit to hang doors and he said what a fantastic quality kitchen it was. I absolutely love it, easy to order and no issues. I recommend DIY Kitchens! '
Jo from Pontefract 'I was very pleased with the kitchen I received from DIY Kitchens and I have recommended them to many of my work colleagues.'
Anna from Leeds 'We bought a kitchen from DIY last year (2021) and we LOVE it (and so does everyone else that sees it!) it’s transformed our home and we love spending time in there now.
We love the quality of the kitchen, it feels very sturdy and the colour is exactly what we wanted. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We heard about DIY as my sister and partner had a DIY kitchen fitted and after seeing their’s, it made us want a new kitchen even more, and we couldn’t resist! '
Brian of Castleford 'I was so impressed by this very high quality product, comprising clean lines and a super finish. The ordering process was just so simple and made things very easy. I was extremely impressed just how easy it was to install the units and the thought put into the design elements of the product. Above all the technical support and backup customer service re any changes etc was just absolutely outstanding. Well done and thank you DIY !! '
Jo & Ryan from Warwick 'We are overall very happy with our new DIY Kitchen. The kitchen units are really good quality, they do not feel at all flimsy, and everything appears to be a really good build quality. Everything arrived as ordered. A mistake that we made with the order was resolved quickly and helpfully by the DIY team. We are really happy with the DIY Kitchens units and would recommend them to anyone.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through a recommendation from a work colleague. I spent a lot of time in the 3d planner, which we found really useful. '
Helen from Saffron Walden 'I was very pleased with the kitchen when it arrived - I used my joiners that fitted a Howden’s kitchen in a previous house for us and they were also impressed with the quality and pleased that the doors and drawers were already fitted as it shortened their labour time. They thought the quality was on par with the Howden’s better quality range. They added some bespoke oak features to the kitchen for me as well which I think warms up the back and white feel of the kitchen.
After some delays with the delivery date due to covid, When it did arrive, the delivery guys who bought the kitchen were extremely organised and were very careful of my new door frame! They ticked off every part as it came in and one missing kickboard was sent shortly afterwards. I had missed off one cupboard from my order - when I rang up, they kindly put it on a fast track order and it was here before the joiners arrived to fit the kitchen.
The quartz was also ordered through DIY kitchens and the company were very efficient in ringing me to organise times etc to come. As were the templater and fitters. Overall I am happy to recommend DIY kitchens to anyone who asks me where I got it from! '
Joanne from Manchester 'Our completed diy kitchen, our kitchen fitter could not get over the quality. Thank you so much we love it!'
Emily & Stuart from Norfolk 'So pleased with our DIY Kitchens kitchen! We opted for solid wood for durability. So far it’s certainly impressed. Especially with 2 small children and their toys!
Extremely pleased with the colour. I wanted an off white but not cream, this colour is perfect. I was beginning to lose hope as I couldn’t find what I wanted without paying for a bespoke colour, then I stumbled upon Diy Kitchens through Instagram. It was ideal being able to order samples to my home as we live over 3 hours away plus it was during a lockdown. We settled on mussel which is a Diy Kitchens standard colour. I’m very indecisive, it took me a while to commit to a colour, but this is spot on and I love it!
Value for money, its brilliant. We had quotes from competitors for the same specification kitchen and they were coming in a few thousand pounds more.
The delivery was very efficient, stress free, and friendly. As was any contact with customer service, they were really helpful in making sure we’d considered everything we needed.
I’m a very happy customer and would recommend, and do recommend, Diy Kitchens to anyone thinking of a new kitchen.'
Mat & Tom from Surrey 'Here are some pictures of our recently completed ground floor extension and renovation. We absolutely love our cabinets. Great value for money, and one of the few places you can find customisable wood front cabinets and doors with so many different cabinet sizes and configurations. Really happy with the finish of the doors, everything looks and feels hi-quality.'
Matt & Jenna from Oxfordshire 'Absolutely over the moon with the quality and look of the kitchen and all for a very reasonable price. Would 100% recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Kara from Hertfordshire 'We are so please with the quality of the kitchen. We love everything about it. We love the space saving cupboards such as the pull our corner unit, the pull out bin and also the pantry with the pull out drawers.
We found the process of designing and ordering the kitchen using the online planner very straight forward, your team were on hand to help with any questions. The after service care was also brilliant. We have since ordered our utility room with you too - although we haven’t fitted it yet. Three friends have also ordered with you since seeing our kitchen! '
Pam from Norwich 'We were very impressed with our kitchen and so were the kitchen fitters who fitted it. They said it was very good quality and very good to work with. Everyone who has seen it has said how lovely it looks and how well made it is with a lively finish. We were very pleased indeed with the finished result. We had excellent guidance and help with the planning. The worktops are amazing, very well fitted and finished and look fantastic.
We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend who had bought their kitchen from you and they were very pleased with the quality.
We would recommend your kitchens to anyone looking to build one. We have eventually built our dream kitchen with your help and are very pleased with the end result- it’s fantastic and I LOVE bring in it.'
Laura from Maidstone 'Here are some pictures of my amazing DIY Kitchen, which I am very proud of. I had googled kitchen comparisons and DIY Kitchens came up with excellent reviews.
I designed the kitchen during lockdown. All the regular kitchen suppliers were closed, so I couldn’t see any kitchens. DIY Kitchens was the perfect solution. I booked a video call with the warehouse in Pontefract and had an online tour of things I wanted to see and could ask any questions.
Having reviewed the website I ordered a selection of door styles and colours, handles and quartz and wooden samples.
I used the CAD system to design the kitchen myself. This was a bit scary as the dimensions had to be perfect but I used the ‘how to do videos’ which helped a lot. I had looked at lots of pictures of kitchens on websites so knew what I wanted and set out to copy!
This was one of the best bits of using DIY Kitchens, I could design it myself, in my own time and could change it as many times as I wanted. My kitchen has been designed perfectly for me. I knew where I wanted the spice rack, the recycled bin, I put in an extra under counter freezer because I always run out of freezer space. I chose pull put drawers and pan drawers. I chose a double sink as I was always so irritated by my 1.5 sink in my last kitchen. I copied the dresser effect of beautiful Neptune Kitchen. I had imagined myself living in the kitchen, preparing meals, washing dishes etc so everything about it is practical.
The CAD stopped me making mistakes by sending error messages! When I had come up with my draft design I sent it off to DIY Kitchens to be checked (several times as I was very nervous!). The staff were so helpful and patient, it gave me confidence that my design would work before I placed an order.
I chose Norton Muscle. The colour was just perfect. I didn’t want white or grey, Muscle is a pale green grey and feels very ‘farrow and ball’!
The after sales service was excellent. During the installation we discovered a stop cock in the utility room so had to delay the template for the quartz. This was not a problem, DIY Kitchens were so helpful.
6 months on and my kitchen is still looking brand new, the feel and quality is great and it looks very expensive yet was a fraction of the price of a high end kitchen. We are about to do another kitchen renovation and I am sticking with DIY Kitchens - no need to look anywhere else !'
John & Jenny from Liverpool 'Here are some pictures of a kitchen that we had installed last Autumn. It took a long time to plan (it was to go into a newly built kitchen diner extension) and we’re really pleased with how the project turned out and the overall quality of the units.'
Lindsey from Hampshire 'The kitchen is the Stanbury in dove grey, we were very pleased with the quality of the units, the delivery is great! The fact they are built already makes the installation much easier.
The vast range of different cupboards and drawers sizes enabled us to get exactly what we wanted within our kitchen layout and we took advantage of the versatility of the range by using different cupboards for different functions, we have created 2 x 1000mm larder cupboards from using tall floor cupboard units on top of 1000mm pan drawer units they are amazing hide everything off the worktops! Exactly what we wanted.'
Suzanne from Surrey 'Pleased with the quality and it appears to be hard wearing. Video tours very useful during Covid. Customer service very prompt and efficient to respond to order queries and missing parts.'
Mr & Mrs Lee from Walsall 'Upon doing some research on the web and viewing YouTube videos I found the name ‘DIY Kitchens’ as builders were commenting on the quality of their units and easy fitment.
After visiting the market leaders and shocked at their prices, we decided to take a look at DIY Kitchens. Upon viewing their website I liked the look of their Linwood range, mainly due to the door construction was made of wood - our previous kitchen was foil wrapped MDF and the foil was peeling away on the edges of the doors.
Once we decided on the Linwood, I used DIY Kitchens cad designer tool to layout the design of our kitchen. The cad tool is really user-friendly and by measuring the overall room dimensions, it was easy to select the cabinets and place them in their required positions to ensure correct fitment.
Once we decided on the design, we arranged to visit their showroom to view their cabinets colours & quality of construction. I must say after visiting other well-known kitchen suppliers the quality was superior in construction & aesthetics. After walking around the showroom with no sales pressure we were instantly impressed & decided to go for the Linwood in Cornflower Blue with Natural Lancaster Oak carcase.
The next day I placed my order and awaited the delivery which promptly arrived on the given date. The units were carefully unloaded and checked. Upon inspection some of the doors were slightly marked, however on reporting this DIY Kitchens support team arranged replacements so all good to go.
Upon being let down by our kitchen fitter I decided to fit the kitchen myself. Upon going out and purchasing some necessary tools such as a laser lever and fine circular saw blades, I started work. Being fully constructed cabinets, the units fit like a dream. It was just a matter of making sure they were square and level; the laser lever made this very easy and was well worth the expense.
The project in all took a few weeks to complete. The only issue I had was cutting down wall stowaway unit so that it fit behind the main kitchen door, as the clearance was only 150mm. I needed to made a good job of this as this was going to be my wife’s gin cabinet!
Having lived with the kitchen for over 10 months we are delighted with the outcome, all our friends have commented on what a beautiful kitchen we have and want to know who supplied and fitted it, especially after telling them the cost, having solid wooden painted doors with soft closed hinges and drawer runners together with a solid oak worktops. Other kitchen suppliers quoted us over £15,000 for the same design but with lesser quality.
Take my word, if you are thinking of buying a new kitchen take your time and do your research, and then visit the DIY kitchen showroom, you’d be totally surprised how much you can save compared with the other market leaders, also you will have a far superior and constructed kitchen, which will last. '
Samantha from North Yorkshire 'Here are some pictures from when we brought the property through to the final photo today.
We absolutely love the kitchen, the quality is amazing even our joiner was a little concerned at first as he had never heard of you guys but when he came and saw the units he couldn't believe the quality either. We got the Norton range with Oak worktops and absolutely love it!
We heard about DIY kitchens from some friends who have also used yourselves before and again, the comments where the same fantastic quality and so handy they come fully built! '
Nina From London 'We absolutely love our new kitchen! It has completely transformed our home. It was easy to plan the kitchen of our dreams as there was so much choice and the pre-sales phone and email advice/ support was excellent. We were unable to visit the showroom due to lockdown restrictions but we managed fine just with the website and phone advice.
My husband is a carpenter and ordered from DIY as he had heard of your excellent reputation. The kitchen was easy to fit and was superb value for money. We have had so many lovely comments from family and friends who cannot believe how much it cost us.
The great thing about the Clayton range is that it is paintable. My husband designed our island around a few of the units in the Heron Grey colour to contrast with the Tern white of the rest of the units. In future if we fancied a change, we can easily repaint in a different colour. We already know the quality of the DIY Kitchens primer and paint is excellent as my husband used this to finish off the bespoke island and hob mantle he made.
Overall we are extremely happy with our kitchen and would recommend DIY kitchens to anyone who is looking for a good quality kitchen that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is! The customer service is excellent too- we had a few damage units in transit, which were replaced quickly. This I think sets DIY Kitchens above its rivals!'
Steph from North Wales 'The space was exceptionally hard to plan for, it was tiny, had a step, was in the eaves and the stairs came up in the middle of it! But, we had to utilise every mm because it was due to serve 12 people as the retreat's kitchen.
The other major problem was it was derelict when I was designing it so had to guess a lot! I had many meetings with other kitchen providers and DIY won hands down in every aspect. I used the kitchen builder and as things changed and unfolded they helped me adapt the design, they were so, so patient with every request or problem I came with. They were honestly incredible, I would have sent them a thank you card if I wasn't up to my eyes in the build!
The options for units surpassed the others and the quality really is incredible, everyone comments on them. Even the delivery chaps were the most helpful delivery people I've ever met!! I couldn't fault DIY kitchens and when we can do our own we will be using them again. And I tell everyone to use them. '
Sophie from Leeds 'Kitchen was great value and is of superior quality. I was pleased with the delivery times and the ease of putting the kitchen together. The showroom was ideal as had everything easily available to view. I have recommended DIY kitchens to several friends since. My life has changed since renovating my kitchen and is now a lovely, calm family space. '
Rebecca from Whittlesey 'Here are some pictures of our new kitchen and also some before the transformation. We have had a wall knocked down and it made into an open plan kitchen/diner which we love.
We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen! It was a very easy process from ordering to having it delivered. The cupboards are of very good quality, arrived fully assembled and all labelled accordingly which helped speed up the installation of it with only needing to attach the legs and door handles.
We have had many comments on our kitchen saying how stunning it looks and we couldn't agree more! We love the colour of the doors against the white tiles and worktops. My husband had used DIY kitchens previously for a small kitchen in another property so we knew we had to use them again when we wanted to replace the kitchen in our house as the kitchens are very well priced for the quality and service you get.'
Katie from Barnsley 'Absolutely love our kitchen! Our kitchen fitters also said it was a pleasure to fit too! Moving into a new home and being able to have our bespoke kitchen at an affordable price was excellent! We found yourselves online and family have also used yourselves. '
Marianne & Steve from Surrey 'Here are some pictures of our new kitchen, which was installed in September into our new build bungalow last year (which used to be my parent’s back garden of 50 years!). We heard about DIY Kitchens a few years ago and used them when we renovated our home in Haslemere in 2014.
We absolutely love our kitchen from DIY Kitchens - the base units are Norton in Cobham Blue, and the corner units are bespoke. The worktop is in Ariel quartz.
For a complete novice, I found the process quite easy and enjoyable (the virtual 3D planner was a revelation). The quality of the kitchen is fantastic - all solid wood; our builder was very impressed and asked for the details to give to his other clients. For a fraction of the price, we have ended up with a beautiful, bespoke kitchen that looks like it came with a much higher price tag!'
