Stanbury Alabaster

Kim from Horsham "We love our kitchen - using units to make a fitted cupboard around the fridge freezer is our absolute favourite!

We had seen a DIY kitchen in our son and daughter-in-laws house which looked fab and was amazed at the quality for the price "

Shelagh from Devon "I absolutely love the kitchen and would recommend you to anyone. A neighbour here in Devon has a son living in Leeds and I know he is visiting your showroom, as a result of my kitchen. Can't praise you all enough. Hope the photos are OK."

Michelle from Derbyshire "Hi, Iíd just like to say a huge thank you for your amazing service, we ordered our kitchen that I had designed myself... your staff at the showroom were so helpful with the couple of questions I had.

Once the kitchen arrived delivered by a very polite and friendly team, we checked the order and found two items damaged. After completing a ticket request these were ordered and replaced within a week... easily with no hassle or stress...

The finished product is truly amazing and my dream kitchen is now a reality. I will be recommending your company to anyone I know looking for a new kitchen."

Lorna from Norfolk "Hi, We have finally finished our kitchen which we ordered from you in August 2016! We have attached photos that you may like to use on your website.

We were extremely pleased with the quality of the units and the overall high specification of the handles, finishes etc. The fact that they came ready assembled was an added bonus! Your customer service was excellent as we came back a few times to add extras and amend sizes to accomodate our boiler.

We will definitely continue to recommend you to our family and friends. Thanks, Lorna "

George & Mandy from Shetland "Our kitchen is fabulous, all the units were from yourselves, we had to source the bespoke solid oak worktops from elsewhere due to the size/spec and no join on the island top, all appliances sourced by ourselves too. Looks amazing and we get so many 'wow' comments from our friends/guests. "

Malton Alabaster

Chris from Middlesex "The kitchen was ordered following a successful trip to the showroom at South Kirkby where the styles and finishes were readily available for view. More importantly, we gained inspiration for our own design which has translated into a "wow factor" for just about everyone who sees the new kitchen for the first time. Your showroom is without doubt the best we visited during our planning phase.

We were fortunate to source a great supplier of granite worktops and chose "Angola Blue in the Night" a black, mottled granite with small, piercing blue highlights that change with the light as one walks around the kitchen. It is stunning and sets off the Alabaster units perfectly.

The floor is a vinyl click product which is durable and easy to clean! Our experience with DIY Kitchens was very positive with help from Olivia, Rachel, Kristie and Lizzie, guiding us along our journey.

The kitchen is nearly finished . . . there being the inevitable end-game changes and mods that crop-up when remodelling an old house that doesn't conform to modern building standards. "

Angela from Cumbria "Hello there, Thanks to you all for my brilliant quality, stylish kitchen. My favourite things are the integrated fridge freezer, pull out larder and perhaps surprisingly, the pull out waste bin and recycling with the concealed drawer inside! It is really spacious, solid and well designed.

I saw one of your kitchens in Period Living magazine once but it took me ages to work out what I wanted and how to achieve it in my quite modest wall space.

I designed the layout myself, with your help checking my plans. I am a complete novice and a bit of a dunce with maths but it all worked well. It's a complete joy and about half the cost I was quoted by a local up-market kitchen company. Plus, you had a better choice of sizes and unit fittings. Thank you all so much."

Linwood Alabaster

Alex from Gloucestershire "My new kitchen is of a solid construction, well built and accurately sized. The online design tool was really useful for working out the best layout. Online installation guides were brilliant for fitting tips.

The doors are of good quality and consistent colour throughout. The support team were excellent and quick to respond. Superb quality kitchen.

Found website through Internet searches and have recommended to multiple friends. "

Linwood Alabaster

Steve & Helen from Oxted "We love our new kitchen, the quality and sturdiness of the units, and especially the colour. The Blum hinges, pan drawer sides and soft closers make all the difference, adding that extra special finish. We are very happy, as is Mia the dog!"

Clayton Alabaster

Thomas from Lincs "Hi I just wanted to say I am very impressed with the quality of my Clayton alabaster kitchen Iíve fitted from yourselves. I even used the left over worktop to make some floating shelves.

The customer service from DIY Kitchens from start to finish is exceptional. I even busted the show room on a busy weekend and had excellent customer service. Iíve attached a couple of photos if youíd like to use them at all please feel free."

Malton Alabaster

Nick from Poole "Just wanted to say I've just finished the renovation of my home which has been a huge job.

I've learnt a lot along the way but one of the real positives was finding your site. Thank you for supplying such a great kitchen for such a fantastic price.

I went for the Malton Alabaster. I went to six high street retailers before finding you. Everyone who comes in is amazed. I attach a few pictures - you are welcome to video it for your site if you wish."

Linwood Alabaster

William from Rochdale "Hi, I thought Iíd share a few pics of my new kitchen, truly DIY as I fitted it myself, wired/plumbed it, tiled it, painted it & fitted the flooring. We love it and have had lovely comments about it and it has made a fantastic family space."

Linwood Alabaster

Julia from Wilmslow "I love my new kitchen. The painted wooden doors and drawer fronts give me exactly the look and quality I was searching for. I particularly like my two sets of pan drawers and the pull out drawers in one of my tall larder cupboards Ė they hold so much and itís far easier to find what you need than with conventional shelves.

One of the things I was particularly impressed by with DIY-Kitchens is the huge choice of cabinet sizes: something that other kitchen retailers were not able to match and something which meant I didnít have to compromise on getting the layout I wanted.

I took the opportunity to visit the showroom to decide exactly which of the huge choice of door fronts was for me and found the staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Ordering was easy, with staff available over the phone to answer any queries. My kitchen fitter was also very impressed with the quality of the units. "

Malton Alabaster

Jon & Claire from Wistow "We spent a lot of time trawling all of the usual the kitchen showrooms and online website and I have to say that the standard and quality offered by DIY Kitchens was second to none with amazing prices that made our decision very easy.

The showroom was fantastic and everyone was very welcoming. The upstairs kitchen offering lovely free snacks and drinks was a brilliant touch. Our order arrived on time, complete and in excellent condition, and the fact that everything was pre-built meant that fitting the kitchen was easy and dare I say, quite relaxing.

We absolutely love our kitchen, its made a massive difference to our home. With 5 children and a crazy dog, we now have the space we always wanted and our new kitchen has definitely become the heart of the home.

Attached is a picture of Squid our crazy Jack Russel who enjoyed sitting in the cardboard packaging every time we opened a new unit."

Deborah from Bristol "We wanted to write to you to let you know how pleased we are with our new kitchen. The process was easy from ordering online to deliver and fitting. Our kitchen fitter hadnít used your kitchens before and was very impressed. Iíve enclosed a few photos. The kitchen is 20 by 10 ft and was originally fitted as a U shaped kitchen with dark wall and ceiling cabinets on all the wall. We wanted the kitchen to be opened up and lighter. Your cabinets have exceeded our expectations.Thank you again and we enjoyed the tea and biscuits. "

Malton Alabaster

Haitham & Denise from Llandovery "Totally delighted by our new kitchen and utility units from DIY Kitchens. Super quality units that arrived well packaged and pre assembled in a dedicated van. Saved us around 40% on the price quoted by a few high street companies. We had the kitchen fitted by a local carpenter who commented on the quality of the units. Saving and great quality, would highly recommend DIY Kitchens."

Malton Alabaster

Doug from Isle Of Wight "Weíd just like to say a big thank you for supplying the kitchen we are now very happy with installed... Our Innova Malton Alabaster Shaker kitchen goes great with the oak worktops. Thanks again, Doug & Emma Palmer from the Isle of Wight!"

Helen from Bideford "Great website with helpful videos to lead me through the design. We are a long way from the showroom so did it all from the pictures and samples. Very impressed with the build quality and helpfulness of the customer services team. (Loved the little touch of including the yorkshire tea with the delivery.) Ready built made such a difference to the installation time. And it all went together without looking like a DIY project.

We used slate worktops, from a local company here in Devon. We have a lot of slate in the house, which is Georgian with a Delabole slate roof. And we used a steel splash back, made bespoke to fill the full height of the wall units with a top, so that we solved the issue of how to cope with installing an extractor fan with 3.4 m ceilings.

If I had any suggestions of extras Iíd have liked, it would have been a few more options in the wall units. Benchmarx does 350mm deep to fit bigger dinner plates, and now we are installed, that might have been handy. Also would have chosen glass doors either side of my hob, except that i needed 450 mm, and that wasnít available in my range. But I was working to quite a budget, so no complaints.

I have learned a lot about how to use the side panels, pelmets and so on, and perhaps a few more tutorials in this area might have made ordering and planning a bit more efficient. I didnít think, for example to add side panels either side of every appliance, but my joiner suggested adding to end off the plinth, rather than returning it. Luckily I have 8 more kitchens to build in my other holiday lettings apartments, so my learning will be carried forwards, and I will definitely be using DIY kitchens again. Soon.

I heard about you because I was comparing Benchmarx and Howdens (we went trade supplier because of having a group of apartments to renovate) and googled some reviews online (benchmark vs Howdens), where one reviewer offered the option that he would choose neither, but instead go with DIY kitchens. I looked you up and put together my quote and you were about 30% cheaper with great customer feedback and no apparent disadvantages. "
