Important information on ordering a painted kitchen.

When placing an order for a painted kitchen please be aware of the following:-

  • Newly painted Innova doors have a sheen that is 20% above their natural levels. This sheen reduces to it's natural matt finish over time.
  • Due to the bespoke nature of a painted product, it is not possible to cancel or return orders once they have entered the production stage or have been delivered.
  • Although we strive to maintain consistency, for painted product there will be batch to batch variances and we cannot guarantee an exact colour match between orders.
  • We have invested in state of the art spray lines in order to achieve a high quality, furniture finish on all our painted doors. We quality check our doors to ensure consistently high standards. Doors are inspected for defects by holding at arm's length. This is an industry standard method for checking painted timber and timber derived materials such as MDF. The reason doors are checked at arm's length and not scrutinised close-up is that the nature of this type of product means that sometimes very small particles may be present in the lacquered surface. These tiny inclusions are normal and won't affect the overall look of the kitchen or the durability of the door when in use. This information is also listed in point 15.6 in our terms & conditions.
  • We will hold the paint batch for your kitchen for 1 month from the kitchen going into production and we highly recommend you double check your order before completing to avoid any part orders or additional extras. After 1 month all batches of paint are disposed with, if you require us to order more for additional extras there will be a charge for this and again we cannot guarantee the batch variances.
  • Painted items aren't held in stock so production lead times apply to ordering additional extras.
  • The paint colours on our sample doors are indicative of the colours in our painted range but may not be exact due to batch variances mentioned above.

Recommended unit colour

We have carefully chosen a range of unit colours that best match your door/drawer fascias. Unit samples can be ordered below FOC.


Customer reviews - Linwood Dakar

Linwood Dakar - Neil from East Yorkshire
We are extremely please with every aspect of the new kitchen, from the friendly assistance at the splendid showroom, the ease of ordering, the promptness of dealing with a query and the timely delivery.

The overall quality is really high and with the units being pre-assembled, they were an absolute doddle to install. With the exception of enlisting the help of a local kitchen fitter to assist with the worktops (primarily due to the weight), the whole kitchen was fitted single handed by myself.

I would strongly recommend visiting the showroom - it helped us tremendously, even causing us to make a change as fundamental as the unit type. All the fittings for the swing-outs and slide-outs are superb quality and work faultlessly.
Where we heard about DIY Kitchens
We initially discovered DIY Kitchens via a Google search and we would wholeheartedly recommend them to any prospective new customer.
Linwood Dakar - Alan from Peterborough
The quality of this kitchen was very good and easy to order and install. Have been recommending to others.
Linwood Dakar - Mark from Whitby
We did a lot of research before deciding where to buy our kitchen. Despite access to a Howdens trade account, we chose Diy-Kitchens based on positive reviews, feel of the company from the web site and choice of units available.

We actually visited the showroom in Yorkshire, but didn't need to. The quality of the units and painted oak doors is at least as good, if not better than all the other major suppliers.

The Blum hardware, colour matched units and availability of angle cupboards (which we used extensively to maximise the open feel of quite a narrow kitchen) sealed the decision.

Everything arrived well packaged on the day promised and the delivery driver was very helpful. Installation was straightforward and touch up paint and friendly telephone support were a bonus. Most importantly, we are delighted with the finished kitchen which looks great and feels more expensive than it was.
Linwood Dakar - Louise from Hampshire
Here are our photos of our kitchen!

We were absolutely amazed with the quality of the kitchen and the prices that came with it. There are so many colours and cupboard sizes/styles to choose from. We extended the cupboards into our dining area to keep the theme going and it makes such a beautiful living space.

We were told about DIY kitchens from a friend who had used yourselves before.

Attached are our photos including one with our staffie Shadow having a nose!! You can also see in the third photo a dog bowl stand my husband made out of an end panel
Linwood Dakar - Julie from Herts
We stumbled across DIY Kitchens online after scouring the high street manufacturers and finding them lacking in quality. After reviewing the customer comments, we visited the Pontefract showroom and weren't disappointed (if anyone's in doubt about the quality and choice, I'd highly recommend a visit - we were there about four hours and were amazed at the choice, options, and knowledgeable and friendly staff). We liked what we saw so much (especially the chance to put different worktop, cupboard and floor samples together in one place, and the fact that everything comes fully assembled for less than the price of a decent high street retailer's flat pack kitchen) that we decided to order through the company (we had help in designing ours from a few high street retailers...).

The DIY Kitchens staff were great throughout - the kitchen arrived exactly when they said it would, and the quality is brilliant; our carpenter managed to get it all installed in a single weekend without any hitches, apart from the dog getting in the way! We started with a 1960s kitchen on moving in, and now have a 21st century beauty. Cannot recommend this company enough!
Linwood Dakar - Cassie from Wakefield
Hi though I would send you pictures of the transformation of our kitchen extension. We love the kitchen itís amazing and was at an affordable price I think it looks more expensive that it actual was so itís a bonus!
Linwood Dakar - Andy from Coalville
First of all let me say that we are in love with our new kitchen! After a bit of googling we came across DIY kitchens and they had the best prices I could find and Iím somewhat of a bargain hunter.

The units are such fantastic quality and they come ready assembled which is a brilliant, it saves you so much time and they come glued so they are even stronger. The finish is fantastic, far better than I ever imagined it would be.

The customer service was flawless. The ladies in the office couldnít do enough to help us when we needed an extra unit. I even visited the warehouse to collect an item and they were so friendly and helpful, all busy making kitchens to order.

Overall a fantastic experience I recommend DIY Kithens to everyone that visits!
