Stanbury Bespoke

Gisela from Surrey "Gisela from Surrey talks to DIY Kitchens about her new Innova Stanbury bespoke painted shaker kitchen that she purchased from us."

Clayton Dove Grey

Nigel from North Yorkshire "This is the 4th Kitchen we have bought from here and simply love dealing with you, the showroom is very welcoming and the products amazing – I actually enjoy moving house as it gives us a good reason to buy another kitchen! The unit thicknesses are better than most as is the finish and the aftercare support – ordering is very easy and website intuitive, I simply cannot fault DIY Kitchens."

Linwood Cobham Blue

Helen & Damian from Leeds "DIY Kitchens were recommended by several satisfied customers on my local Facebook community page. We love the look and feel of the doors, especially the dark blue colour (Cobham Blue). It was especially reassuring to see the reaction of our kitchen fitter and plumber to the quality of the product; it was clear to see that they were both impressed."

Jayn from Doncaster "We thought the kitchen was of excellent quality and great value for money. In fact we wished we had heard about you a couple of years ago when we did our kitchen in the home we live in now.

We ordered a bespoke kitchen from Germany, which cost us over £20000, and we feel the kitchen we got from you was of superior quality to this at a fraction of the price.

Although we live relatively close by to your showroom we had never heard of you before one of our relatives recommended you as he’d purchased his kitchen from your company. We looked at your website, then visited your premises to check you out in person. We were blown away by your creative and immaculate showroom and the service we received was great.

We ordered our kitchen online and everything we ordered was delivered on time as promised. We even needed a couple of extra bits which you fast tracked for us. We couldn’t be more happy with the results.

Over the years we’ve done many home renovations and the quality of your company’s products have been far and away the best and we would recommend you any day of the week. In fact my brother in law will be visiting you when he does his kitchen! By the way loved the cookies and hot chocolate!"

Linwood Bespoke

Toni from Northumberland "These are some before during and after shots of our kitchen transformation. We chose a bespoke colour as the main colour as it really stood out and was just a bit different from the blue and pale grey currently on trend and we like to be slightly different!

Your service was brilliant, you got our kitchen to us just lockdown took hold. The guys who came and fitted the worktops were great and said they hadn’t seen a kitchen our colour in the 3 years they’d fitted tops for you. The white tops really lift the look and they sparkle in the sun! I absolutely love everything about it, the island, the colour the quality, everything."

Stanbury Cobham Blue

Heather from Dorset "I absolutely love my new kitchen - unfortunately it is also my office at the moment due to home working and my desk is currently my kitchen table!

The quality of the kitchen excellent - even the fitter commented it was one of the best he had fitted. He made a few adjustments to make it more bespoke, like bringing the tall double cupboard out from the wall to hide the boiler and washing machine. It makes the perfect utility cupboard.

He also built a matching corner larder unit where the space was too small to fit a standard cupboard. It houses all the bulky appliances like the microwave, air fryer and food processors.

I deliberately designed the hob to fit on a shorter unit as I am not very tall and l think it makes a feature of it. I hope you like what we have done with your units. "

Stanbury Cobham Blue

Paul & Jenna from Blackpool "We originally found out about yourselves via your social media presence, Instagram to be exact, we started following the various hash tags associated with yourselves and after receiving a quote from another retailer, we decided to make the trip to the Pontefract showroom for a look.

We originally set out to buy a shaker style kitchen in a sage/mint colour however we soon fell in love with the Cobham Blue and Lancaster Oak combination. After comparing the quality in the showroom with other brands and being impressed with the service we received there we saved the order with help of your staff and completed the order as soon as we got home.

The delivery process was just as smooth as the ordering one, I had to delay the order due to unforeseen circumstances however nothing was too much trouble and was all easily handled via the online ticket system.

Overall we are very happy with the quality, our fitter was also impressed and as you can see, the final result certainly makes a statement, we have had nothing but positive feedback from friends who have seen it and also via our own social media channels. "

Helmsley Cobham Blue

Francesca from Norfolk " I am over the moon with my Helmsley kitchen. The process was very easy from ordering samples, purchasing online and delivery. The customer service is next to none with an advisor replying to my queries very promptly.

The overall result is a million times more perfect than I had ever hoped for. I can't recommend DIY kitchens enough, so much so I am currently in the process of designing one for a friend.

I heard about DIY kitchens through Instagram after starting my own account for home inspiration under the name sterling_house_reno

I am in the process of launching my Interior Design business and hope to incorporate your kitchens for my clients, so I hope to be ordering from you very soon."

Norton Bespoke

Anna & Robert from Surrey "We were recommended DIY kitchens by a number of friends and we were thrilled with our decision to go with you for our new extension. The quality of the doors and cabinets is excellent, and it was so great that we could choose from a choice of different coloured carcases, and ANY colour we wanted for the fronts! Everyone has been really impressed by the standard, including our kitchen fitters and builders who said it was one of the best they've seen.

We LOVE the worktop, and think it goes perfectly with the colour of the cabinets. Magazine worthy!

I also found your call centre staff incredibly helpful and they were so patient with the endless questions I had, and gave great advice when planning. Thank you, we love it."

Linwood Cobham Blue

Gemma & Stephen from Milton Keynes "From planning to fruition, we are so impressed. DIY was recommended to us by a friend initially, so we took a road trip one weekend up to DIY headquarters in Pontefract to their amazing showroom - who helped us run though our plans initially.

We had been to over 4 retailers - all of which were at least double the price quoted to us by DIY for a timber door. I was also amazed we could chose our own colour through the bespoke option.

Once we were ready to order the process was incredibly simple online. The units arrived on time and fully assembled, making the builders life easy. One happy customer - thank you!"

Linwood Bespoke

Tanya from Cheshire "I thought I’d send some before and after pictures of our new kitchen. We love it so much and are so please with the quality of the kitchen so thank you. Great service from DIY kitchens and highly recommend to all our friends and family. "

Linwood Cobham Blue

Catherine from Brighton "We are so happy with our kitchen – it looks amazing and far more expensive than it actually cost.

The units are really solid and robust and look very high quality. The worktop has finished it all off beautifully – and the fitter was brilliant – friendly, professional, and all measured with lasers for absolute accuracy. We couldn’t be more delighted.

We were recommended DIY Kitchens by a friend who had used them a couple of years ago – and so glad he mentioned it to us."

Stanbury Bespoke

Jayne from Doncaster "Please see attached pictures of our kitchen with a couple before the renovation. We were really pleased with the quality of the kitchen and the joiner who fitted it is now recommending DIY kitchens to his other clients. In particular the customer service we received from Kirstie, Carla, Alice and Dawn was exceptional. I chose DIY kitchens after my mum used you for her kitchen."

Clayton Cornflower Blue

Sarah from Surrey "Attached are photos of my recently renovated kitchen. It is Clayton cornflower blue. We were very impressed with the quality of the manufacture and the finish of the work surfaces. It was incredibly easy to install! I heard about DIY kitchens as my parents and a friend has used them."

Stanbury Bespoke

Justin & Mandy from Nottingham "We fitted the kitchen ourselves in January of this year and are really pleased with it. We have purchased other kitchens previously from other manufacturers and what stood out for us was the quality of the carcasses. Also, whilst we had a few “teething issues” with some of the doors being damaged, we cannot fault the efficiency and speed with which the replacements were arranged. Many thanks!"

Norton Cobham Blue

John from Bracknell "Very good quality, and extremely sturdy, great selection of handles and features. Heard about diy kitchens after a Google search!"

Malton Bespoke

Jennifer from Lancashire "Our kitchen was fitted a year ago, it’s only just had the finishing touches added. We went for a bespoke colour and a grey island in the Malton shaker style, with a quartz worktop."

Stanbury Cobham Blue

James from London "My client was super-happy with it, really pleased with the outcome. "

Stanbury Cobham Blue

Jo from Maidstone "Pictures of our completed kitchen."

Malton Cornflower Blue

Christina & Paul from Norfolk "Here are some pictures of our kitchen, including a couple of before shots. Before fitting the kitchen, we had some building work done, replacing the small window with a large patio door, to maximise the view of the garden.

We are thrilled with our new kitchen. We fitted it ourselves (when I say we, it was really my husband with me as his assistant.) As you will see from the photographs, we had to ‘tweak’ a few of the units, especially around the sink area where there is an RSJ support jutting out. This was originally the external wall but an extension had been built before we bought the property.

With the help of one of your team we saw that the best way to fit the sink unit in was to use a corner unit, which we cut to size. Originally we were going to put a filler panel in between it and the bin unit, but realised that the bin unit plus the space was just the right size for a 500 door, so we ordered a door, removed the drawer and added some shelves to make use of the space (the photos should make this clearer).

The other problem we had was our ceiling is very low so we had to jack up the tall units to fit the legs on! We chose to have the breakfast area in cream with an oak worktop, to make it different to the rest of the kitchen, then my husband made a radiator cover which I painted to match, and used an offcut from the worktop to make a shelf. Another worktop offcut was used to make the shelf above the sink. The kick board lighting was my husband’s idea!

We found the quality of the units to be excellent, and we have now got a bespoke kitchen at a fraction of the price we were quoted by other companies.



It was my sister who recommended you as she had a kitchen from you a few years ago. "
