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"

Malton Mussel

Mat from Doncaster "I am extremely pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of the kitchen. Being a bit of a perfectionist I do have annoyingly high standards and DIY Kitchen ticked all the boxes at every stage. From the helpful and experienced staff in the showroom to the build quality of the kitchen, I was impressed with the service and am even more impressed with my final result in the kitchen. Now it is time to enjoy it : )

Many thanks all at DIY Kitchens."

Janet from Oakham "We've been very impressed by diy-kitchens. Spent a long time planning our refit; started off down the Ikea route but didn't like their new styles, had a couple of quotes from 'proper' showrooms and was both appalled at the price and disappointed with their design ideas, rejected Howdens because I don't like their sales methods, and then stumbled across diy-kitchens via a Google search. Seemed to be just what we were looking for - wide variety of styles, comprehensive range of units and sizes, and the ability to select everything ourselves thereby ensuring that we actually got what we wanted. Oh, and very reasonably priced ! Visited the showroom and was equally impressed; more displays than any other showroom I'd been to, the opportunity to see the construction and fittings, and staff who were both friendly and knowledgeable.

Went home, did the final plan, had a few queries which were answered by a quick phone call, did another showroom visit just to be sure, and then placed the order. Bit tedious but easy enough to do, and loved the fact that I could order some units to bespoke depths at very little extra cost. We only ordered kitchen units from diy as we were sourcing our worktops and appliances elsewhere.

Kitchen arrived when promised, and was everything we were hoping it would be. Our fitter was very happy with it, including the fact that some units were dry assembled to make fitting them easier. Lots of things about diy-kitchens that are good, but two in particular are the fact that the carcases can be same colour as the doors so that you don't need end panels, and that you can order cabinets to be made to a bespoke depth at very little extra cost. We did this with the wall microwave unit and the cabinet next to it so that our Ikea microwave would fit. "

Nicola from Leeds "Hi, this is my kitchen from DIY kitchens! Malton sage. Kitchen sink, tap, extractor fan and hob also from DIY kitchens. Thank you! "

Altino Alabaster

Martyn from Essex "The overall design was our own (mainly my wife). The island design was due to a mistake when ordering our previous kitchen a few years ago. But we liked it so much, we incorporated it into the new kitchen.

We love the colour (Dakar) and the use of drawer cabinets either side of the cooker.

4th time using DIY - always so happy with our choice."

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. "

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!"

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. "

Paul from Derbyshire "Please see attached photos and details of our kitchen we had from you

We found you via your website and were very impressed with your prices. But were unsure what quality your kitchens would be ,so we decided to drive up to your show room and were very impressed with the range of kitchens on display. We were also impressed with the quality of all the units, doors and work tops. We took away some samples on the day to help make our final decision.

Once our decision was made we started ordering online and were very impressed with the ease of ordering and any questions we had were answered very quickly.

I fitted the kitchen myself - never done anything like this before so was glad the units came fully assembled which made the whole job easier."

Richard from Bedfordshire "Really pleased with the overall quality - solid oak doors with perfect match to panels, trims etc. The ability to have custom sized solutions at very competitive prices with quick delivery was a huge bonus, as there was no compromise with our design. And when a mistake was made, there was no excuse - just fantastic customer service to ensure that this was rectified as quickly as possible and with minimum inconvenience.

The whole rip-out/replacement took just 10 days and has been installed for 6 months now - everything is as tight and fresh as the 1st unveiling. I would 100% recommend DIY-Kitchens to anyone :-)

We heard about DIY-Kitchens from our fitter when I asked for an install price. The difference to the best Magnet was huge - much better - so we visited the DIY-Kitchen to see if there was a compromise. Absolutely not - the showroom gave huge choices of designs and features that I would not have known about.

The ordering process was easy and the staff helpful. We changed colour at the last minute when we could - this did not affect pricing or delivery - and the install was as easy as our excellent installer indicated. The Yorkshire tea and biscuits was a very nice touch."

Nichola from Swindon " Please find attached pictures of our completed kitchen. I cannot put into words how pleased we are with the end result. My husband and I got several quotes from high street retailers for our new kitchen but they were more then double the price of what we ended up paying and for an inferior quality product.

Ordering our kitchen from diy-kitchens meant I had complete control of the design and I ended up with so may extras I didnt expect to get such as soft close doors, pan drawers and pull out cabinets. The cupboards are beautiful inside and out and we have had so many positive comments from friends and family.

The sample ordering service also helped us select the right style and colour. Thank you for all your help and for such a beautiful kitchen."

Malcolm from Upton "Please see below some images of our kitchen."

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. "
