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.

Linwood Mussel - Mr R Brown from Wymondham
We needed to replace our aging kitchen, and after several horrendous local quotes I quite fancied the idea of fitting it myself, so then set about looking for a good supplier. The usual local big stores had expensive items and low end shoddy units so I was looking for quality but at a reasonable price, and this is when we found DIY-Kitchens. We found them being recommended on moneysavingexpert.com website. The units are of a high quality and easy to fit. They arrived well packaged and the whole order was complete with nothing missing, something I found incredible considering the amount in the order. See the pics for yourself and see the transformation, thanks DIY-kitchens!
Linwood Mussel - Lynn from Runcorn
Just like to say thank you for all your help you have all been fantastic, we both love our new kitchen and everyone who has seen it has said how beautiful and well made it is, we would highly recommend diy kitchen's to anyone thinking of getting a new kitchen.
Linwood Mussel - Claire from Lincolnshire
My new kitchen which I bought from you is now finished & I thought I could upload some photos of it. I'm really pleased with the quality of the units & finish.

Linwood Mussel - Phil from Stanley
Linwood Colour mussel with oak work tops. Very good quality doors and carcasses visited several local showrooms but no ware near diy kitchens quality.
Linwood Mussel - Neil from Northampton
I first found DIY kitchens whilst searching on the internet for kitchen companies. I found their website very informative and easy to navigate. I was encouraged by the vast range of units available, door handles and other components required for installing a new kitchen. My wife and I decided to visit the showroom which is next door to where the units are manufactured and this was well worth the visit. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone was so helpful and there is no hard sell as the kitchens sell themselves.

As a carpenter/joiner I was very impressed with how well the kitchens are made and the quality of the finished product.

We wanted a painted shaker style kitchen and fell in love with the Linwood range which offered a good range of colours. Although we could have had any colour mixed for our kitchen units we chose two that matched our chalk painted vintage furniture that would also be in the same room. The colour was a very important factor and we are extremely pleased with the paint finish on the units. It was helpful to view the Linwood range in the showroom to see the quality of the finished product and how well the drawers/units work. It also helped us to decide on a full stave rustic worktop to complete the look we wanted to achieve. We also found the advice regarding manufacturing the components for our larder unit invaluable and it is now one of our favourite pieces in our new kitchen.

We were helped with the layout of our kitchen and the units/components that we would require and the staff were on hand to help us to do this. This was done on the in-house computers available in the showroom which creates a unique customer number that you can then access at home. This made placing the final order so easy and allowed me to make changes prior to this time. Nothing was too much trouble when we were in store and when we were at home if we had any questions or queries. The delivery of the kitchen was on time and everything was well packaged which meant that there was no damage to any of the items ordered. The kitchen carcasses come assembled ready to hang the doors which results in a very strong/well made unit. The kitchen was easy to install and a nice touch was the tea and biscuits that were included in one of the boxes.

We are delighted with our new kitchen and would not hesitate in recommending DIY kitchens.

Please see above our kitchen photos. We are absolutely delighted with the finished look. A very good company to work with, thank you. :)
Linwood Mussel - Terry from Morecambe
Here are some photos of my kitchen in Linwood Mussel painted oak. I am very happy with whole package service, delivery and quality. I would and have recommended diy Kitchens to others, I didn't use tradesmen to fit the kitchen I fit it myself and if I can do it anybody can.

Thank you diy Kitchens.
Linwood Mussel - Theresa from Essex
Loved the way the carcasses come fully assembled. So easy to fit. Superb quality, fantastic amount of colours, so many kitchen choices so I ordered many samples before I chose.

I heard about DIY Kitchens from my brother who buys and refurbishes houses. He used to use a well-known brand for his houses but not anymore.
Linwood Mussel - Jannette from Gornal Wood
Here are photos of my completed kitchen which is fabulous. We used your company after my husband was told about you by a work colleague.

The units are fantastic quality, we had Linwood in Mussel, the quality is so much better than other brands we saw (and believe me, we spent two years going round looking at them!), the quality of the wood on the doors is so much better as it's made from hardwood rather than MDF.

We looked online and used the brilliant 360 degree tour then took a trip up to the showroom (I would recommend doing this if you are uncertain because not only are the staff very helpful and friendly, you can see the great quality in person (and there are free refreshments too!).

We then planned it out at home and although we could have done it online at home, decided to go back to the showroom to do place the order in case we got any problems and again, the staff, especially Brian, were excellent. We had to use customer services a couple of times, and they were very helpful, special mention and thanks to Alice and Jonathan.

They gave us a delivery date, and keep in touch with you, and delivered exactly when they promised. Everything comes ready assembled so you only have to fit them, it couldn't be easier!

As you can see from the photos, I have the most beautiful kitchen I could have hoped for and for a fraction of the price it would have cost me anywhere else. My friends have been round and commented on how lovely it is, and one of them has just had hers done, in an identical design, but as she commented, hers isn't hardwood, and it cost three times as much as what we paid, so that reconfirmed our faith not only in the quality but the fantastic value for money.

Thank you DIY Kitchens
Linwood Mussel - Phil & Joy from Basingstoke
Hi, first of all, just a few words and thanks for the opportunity.

I had seen very positive comments about DIY Kitchens in a forum and decided to do a little research. This led me to the excellent web site with the virtual tour. We were very impressed so decided to drive up and make a weekend of the stay. We were glad we did and were to then make two further journeys to finalise everything.

Designing our kitchen took time and careful consideration, and three visits to Yorkshire to the fantastic showroom. The design stage was made all the more easy due to the available downloadable templates which really helped. Above all though, special thanks to the support team who were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. Response to support tickets was usually pretty much instant, and a wait of more than an hour extremely rare.

The delivery of the kitchen was a little late in the day, but the drivers were very apologetic and despite the late hour worked tirelessly to bring in the various boxes which quickly filled our double garage. It was only after that I realised the enormity of the task ahead to fit it all. However, everything went together just as planned. There was one small issue with a curved door, but a quick email to support resulted in a replacement ordered which arrived in three days. This was not an issue as doors are last to be fitted. The quality of the cabinets and hardware is excellent, and we are really pleased with the finished kitchen. I am also very proud of the results I achieved and the standard of finish, which is ultimately what the quality of the kitchen deserved.
Linwood Mussel - Kathryn & Simon from South Devon
Moving into our ‘Forever’ Home, (fingers crossed) ,the existing kitchen was very 90s and dated. We needed a kitchen that was both contemporary, but classic and would last many years, both practically and aesthetically.

We began the long process of redesigning the original kitchen. We approached local and chain kitchen companies, unfortunately their vision and ours were very different. Most seemed interested in using their stock units and there was no place for anything that did not seem to fit their rather rigid layouts. For what we wanted the price was becoming astronomical, and way out of our budget.

We looked online and found DIY kitchens, with an excellent website and a wide range of unit sizes. We were a little wary at first, because we are way down in the south and Pontefract is a long way away. However, we began the process of planning. Finally after many attempts we felt we had the kitchen design as we wished. We ordered originally way back in 2016. When we were finally ready to accept delivery, I had a little melt down, and much to my husband’s horror decided to change all the kitchen colours and add some oak. Once he had recovered from the shock, I contacted DIY by their ticket system, and they couldn't be more helpful. I ordered a further selection of samples and re ordered the kitchen from scratch.

There wasn't a kitchen fitter in site. My husband took on the challenge, and we project managed the trades, electrician, plasterer and floor fitter. I did the decorating!

We did a road trip to Pontefract to look around the display which was excellent, and took some time to discuss the worktop finish with another very helpful staff member. We could have done this all on line but we visited family en-route.

The kitchen arrived on a truck and filled the kitchen with boxes, and slowly but surely the kitchen took shape. The worktop surveyor arrived and took measurements and the worktop arrived and looks fabulous, this for us was a major investment.

We are very delighted with the look of the kitchen. It works just as we envisaged and we have already entertained family here. DIY kitchens were always helpful and polite.

What was a daunting prospect for us at the beginning has blossomed into our dream kitchen, and within our budget.
Linwood Mussel - Martin from Northumberland
We are delighted with the kitchen and extremely grateful to Matthew, Anouska and the team.

The kitchen is installed in Northumberland (this room was not previously our kitchen !!!!)
