You don’t have to pay over the odds for a beautiful well made kitchen. How it is fitted and styled is very important too. All our friends and family think our kitchen is bespoke.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through Instagram and doing lots of research. We visited the showroom twice to make sure we were happy with what we were ordering. Staff were very helpful and none of our many questions were too much trouble. We couldn’t be happier with our choice. '
Helen from Buckinghamshire 'Here is our finished DIY kitchen and utility room which we love ❤️
Overall impression, we love our DIY Kitchen. The quality is great and it looks like a bespoke kitchen but at the fraction of the price.'
Emily from Bridgend 'We are so incredibly happy with our kitchen! The quality of everything is amazing, everyone has commented saying how high quality it looks and is. I loved that we could design it ourselves, which was so easy to do! We went for standard white and oak insides, which look great against quartz worktops. We couldn’t be happier with how the kitchen has turned out.'
Sharron from Hull 'Units ordered from DIY kitchens. Island was added to a new build kitchen. Helmsley in-frame in Cobham Blue '
Anna from North Yorkshire 'After recently completing our kitchen using the DIY kitchen Helmsley range I wanted to send pictures in. We are so impressed with our kitchen from DIY Kitchens. The quality is fantastic. We went for Helmsley in Dove Grey. The comments we receive about the kitchen are very complimentary. We are currently planning our utility room which we will order from DIY kitchens as well. I recommend DIY kitchens to everyone!!

Emma from Surrey 'I had the Helmsley kitchen in Mussel, with a bespoke Olive colour on the island and for my utility room I had Norton in Mussel.
We’re thrilled with the quality, style, ease of using the planning tool (quite fun!), and I absolutely love my butler’s pantry.
My husband was doing some kitchen research and read some great reviews. At exactly the same time, a local friend told us they’d just had a DIY kitchen fitted and were really pleased. It was great timing as the showroom was closed due to covid, so we managed to see hers! We’ve recommended DIY kitchens to so many people now.'
Louise from Tooting 'I absolutely LOVE my DIY Kitchen. We were really keen to have a bespoke kitchen painted and were blown away with the quality, look and ease of buying a DIY Kitchen. It was so easy to design my own kitchen on their website, and then the customer service team were super-helpful at answering all my questions to ensure I got my order completely right and finally the delivery team were so lovely and communicative about their delivery schedule.
When the kitchen arrived, my builders told me the units were really well made which made their life easier. I feel I have a show kitchen in my very own house. It makes me smile every morning.'
Philippa from Rutland 'Thank you so much for our amazing kitchen - the product and support from DIY kitchens has been amazing throughout the process. Here are a few pictures of the final outcome.'
Terrie from Manchester 'I heard about DIY kitchens on Instagram. I am so happy with my Kitchen. The way it looks the way it came delivered already assembled. So glad I went with DIY Kitchens.'
Oliver & Lesley from Cumbria 'We are over the moon with our kitchen and utility room, I enjoyed having the freedom to design the layout myself, adding bits in like the pantry cupboard and pull out trays unit. We wanted an in frame kitchen so chose the Helmsley range, the value for money was great.
We still have some decor bits to add but the units and worktop are all amazing quality, we are very happy with it all. '
Vicky from Tyne And Wear 'I heard about DIY kitchens from recommendations on Instagram I then stalked the hashtag #diykitchenshelmsley for a while so I could see what the kitchens were like and see real peoples' opinions.
Everyone seem suitably impressed so I ordered a sample door. The door appeared extremely well made and good quality. It passed the test of being stood up in my kitchen with 3 children and a dog running past for a few months before I finally took the plunge.
I didn’t have time to go to the showroom so I just went for it. DIY Kitchens were great. There were lots of delays with builders etc so they pushed my date back a few times. It was worth the wait. I’m ecstatic with it.
The finish is fantastic. So lovely to have the soft close option with a busy family. All of the unit are well made and stand up to comings and goings of family life. The paint is extremely hard wearing. I’m especially impressed with the pull out unit. So handy and strong. '
Catherine from Kendal 'We have fitted the kitchen in our cottage and are over the moon with the finished look. They were easy to fit, great quality, fantastic value and an excellent choice for our kitchen style. It’s Chester’s (our pooch) favourite place to chill!!'
Lou & James from Bristol 'We absolutely love our DIY kitchens kitchen. It’s solid wood and the inframe design is beautiful, my personal favourite part is the butlers pantry & our huge fridge and freezer. The whole process was great, from the online design planner to the delivery and after service.
We were recommended DIY kitchens by our carpenter who had installed one with another client. Our dog Willow, also spends 90% of her day in the kitchen by the aga.'
Amanda from Wirral 'We’re really impressed with the quality and finish of the kitchen and are delighted with the final look. '
Gillian from York 'Here is our fantastic kitchen from yourselves! With a few added extras from our joiner. It was the Helmsley range where we painted what colour we wanted.'
Becky from Worcester 'Here is my finished Helmsley kitchen. We absolutely love it. The quality is fantastic and the fact it came ready assembled was great. The quartz worktops are also beautiful and the ordering and fitting service was seamless.
I found out about DIY Kitchens after seeing other kitchens on Instagram. I did a lot of research and spent a lot of time perfecting my designs before ordering but we think we saved around 50% on the cost we were quoted from Magnet. We are thrilled with the final result.'
Joy from Wallington 'We are so happy with our new kitchen. The units are fantastic quality, much better than any of the other kitchen brands (who were also much more expensive!).
We are really pleased with the in-frame look and the colours that we chose. Everything from ordering to installation was really easy and we have already recommended DIY kitchens to our friends.'
Nathan & Emma from Bicester 'Love the in-frame and quality, we upgraded to the glasses pan drawers and like the sturdiness of them. Whilst we didn't get the worktop from yourselves, it's the same material I believe just from a different supplier.'
Michael from West Yorkshire 'Really pleased with the kitchen units with paying that bit extra for solid wood makes all the difference. Fitting it was also straightforward and the tolerances of the finishes/doors were acceptable. I ended up sourcing the worktops locally which I'm also pleased about the end result which makes it look like a £30K kitchen but paid £12K. Saw DIY advertised on the internet on a search engine, would certainly use again.'
Keely from Monmouthshire 'Here are some photos of our favourite part of the house! We installed September 2021, I have also included some before pictures. We love the quality of the cabinets and the customer service was second to none, I recommend to everyone I know!'
Allison from Nottingham 'After visiting other kitchen stores and then visiting DIY kitchens we were very impressed with the quality of the units and the wide variety of colours. We were made to feel welcome and view all of the kitchens at our own pace no pushy salesmen and even a free help yourself coffee. Such a pleasant experience to other showrooms. We even got free colour samples to take home of the units.
I loved the 3d planner and actually spent a good couple of weeks designing different kitchen layouts. I opted for the layout I was told by other design companies that I couldn’t have…. A mantle over my range cooker and I think it looks great. The staff were very helpful when I phoned for advice and overall I chose the right company. I would definitely buy again and recommend to family and friends to buy from diy kitchens.'
Sheila from Arden 'We found ordering very simple online and when they arrived, the units were found to be excellent quality. Our builder was very impressed and found them a dream to fit! We used you because we had had a previous kitchen from you which we’d been equally impressed with.'
Kate & Rob from Staffordshire 'Here are some photos of our beautiful kitchen from you guys. Without a doubt the best decision choosing DIY kitchens. The service and support were 5 star. No pushy sales just very knowledgeable staff. The kitchen is of such quality and the colour match was spot on.
We absolutely love our kitchen. I have had so many compliments on the quality of it. After doing lots of online research, DIY Kitchens were by far the best priced for an ‘inframe’ I could find. We enjoyed using the DIY Planner, we were able to take our time and played around with many different designs without the pressure of someone wanting us to make a final decision. Thank you DIY kitchens!! '
Kari from Dorset 'We absolutely love our new Helmsley Kitchen, its beautiful with good quality kitchen, we get so many compliments!!'
Tracy from Wiltshire '
I ordered the kitchen during Lockdown, having not visited the showroom, all I went by was a sample door and a virtual tour, along with numerous recommendation on Instagram, following accounts that were going through the same process.
So pleased with the quality, I knew from the website spec that units were better than Howdens (which my builder/kitchen fitter recommended). Kitchen fitters were really impressed too with the quality and ease to fit. Everyone comments on the kitchen and are shocked when I say Diy-kitchens.com!
The kitchen looks so bespoke, as I was able to purchase the dovetail drawers, cutlery inserts (which my carpentry cut to fit inframes), extra paint which was used as I’d added skirting to create that bespoke look.
I heard about DIY Kitchens when looking at kitchen inspiration on Instagram. And then to discover individuals accounts with step by step advice was invaluable. @Distractions_from_grief Instagram page is amazing.'
Lucy from North Yorkshire 'We are pleased to send you some beautiful photos of our DIY Kitchens kitchen. I have included photos of before and after. We are very impressed with the quality and finish of the kitchen, even the joiner commented on the quality.
I found my inspiration on Instagram which is where I first heard about DIY kitchens. I have already recommended DIY kitchens to many friends for their kitchen renovations.'
Abi from Poole 'I absolutely love my Helmsley range kitchen. I have had so many compliments on the quality of it. The inframe style elevates the whole room and I think it looks contemporary but still traditional. The doors and drawers are fantastic quality and after doing lots of online research, DIY Kitchens were by far the cheapest I could find. I also enjoyed using the DIY Planner as I took my time and played around with many different designs without the pressure of someone wanting me to make a final decision.'
Martine from Cardiff 'We were so impressed by DIY Kitchens from start to finish. We looked at other suppliers and for the same quality we were looking at twice the price.
Everything was checked before delivery and when it arrived it was all correct. Easy to fit and the results are really high end. I have recommended to everyone! Great choice of cabinets and colours.'
Natasha from Suffolk 'This is our beautiful Helmsley DIY kitchen. We love the quality of the cabinets and the dove grey colour. Many people have commented how lovely calming kitchen is. '
Georgina from Leeds 'Absolutely love my new bespoke kitchen and the quality is amazing. I get so many compliments from friends. I loved using the planner to design my dream kitchen.'
Tom from Cheshire 'We can’t express enough how much we love our kitchen. It’s stunning and of such great quality. The units and doors were all delivered perfectly and clearly well quality controlled. On top of that your customer service both during planning and after sales was outstanding, Sophie was so helpful and can’t thank her enough for all the assistance she gave. '
Mel from Cumbria 'Here are some photos of our gorgeous family kitchen thanks to your super units.
We absolutely love our new kitchen the quality of the units is fantastic even our kitchen fitters were totally amazed by the quality of them. Everything was packaged really well, we did have 2 units that had slight defects but these were replaced without any hassle promptly. I recommend DIY kitchens to all my friends and love that our kitchen is so family-friendly. A kitchen I truly enjoy cleaning!'
Faye from Norfolk 'I love my Cobham Blue kitchen the quality is fabulous the soft close doors are a dream!. My designer used diy kitchens for her own and sorted mine out amazingly through the whole renovation. I cannot find my order number? '
Louise from Isle of Anglesey 'The overall impression was good, I was delighted with the quality of the doors, the solid units and the worktop. The ordering process and delivery service was fantastic. A picking error with a panel was rectified quickly. I have recommended DIY Kitchens to lots of people - the quality is superb and the price is good value for money.'
Rob from Manchester 'Kitchen quality is superb, we now spend more time in the kitchen than any other room in the house. A close friend used DIY Kitchens and advised me to do the same.'
Kev from Essex 'After receiving quotes from kitchen companies we decided it might be worth doing it ourselves. My wife came across you whilst searching for companies that could provide cabinet for the diyer.
We started with our utility room to determine whether a) we could do a kitchen and b) the quality of diy-kitchen's cabinets - we were in lockdown so couldn't visit the showroom. We were very happy with the quality of the cabinets and our handiwork, so we embarked on the kitchen. As you can see, this entailed a lot of work as we merged the dining area into the kitchen.
It took some planning and a great deal of time but having designed it ourselves, it fits our needs perfectly. '
Karin from Middlesbrough 'Quality of kitchen units fantastic, very sturdy. Had a few issues with finish on paintwork (I think from packing) but promptly sorted and sent replacements without fuss. Thank you! I love it!'
Rob from Edinburgh 'Delighted with the quality and craftsmanship of the kitchen. We spent a lot of time researching kitchens to feature in our new extension before deciding on a custom painted In-frame kitchen. The equivalent was tens of thousands more than we paid but it looks and feels exactly the same. Would definitely recommend to others (as we were).'
Jennifer from Isle of Man 'The quality of the Hardwood kitchen is excellent, I love the wood grain finish and the dove grey suited my colour scheme for the house, inspired by the sea and shore of the nearby beach.
I found DIY kitchens online and used the design tool to work out our kitchen design. We also bought enough units to fit out the utility to match. I've found the storage space within the tall units is excellent and the support, when I didn't allow for the side panels on the island when ordering the end panel, was so helpful.
Our kitchen fitter had no problem with fitting the units because they were so strong and well made.
Can't thank you enough and have recommended you to others albeit they may not be brave enough to measure and order there own units despite the savings they could make.'
Alex from Bath 'We were really impressed with the quality and rigidity of the units, and so were the fitters. The aesthetics of the finished project have far exceeded our expectations and we’ve received many compliments on our beautiful new kitchen.
DIY-Kitchens came highly recommended by a friend as a great way to save money compared to the high street shops, and they were absolutely right! I really enjoyed the self-design process and learning creative ways to use different sizes of units. I also found the customer service to be very helpful.
I’m pleased to attach photos of our new kitchen, including some before & afters and our pet cat Brian! '
Claire from Kendal 'I absolutely love my kitchen. Such amazing quality for such a great price. The cabinets are so well made and the worktop finishes it off perfectly. I have recommended DIY kitchens to all of my friends and family.'
Brian from Felixstowe 'Here is our wonderful kitchen which you supplied in March this year. My husband was a kitchen designer and we intended to source units from one of the large sheds as we had used them before but our son in law (who took these pics) recommended your company. He had previously used you to fit out his beach hut and was so impressed with the quality.
We had moved into an apartment which hadn’t been lived in for 3 years and the kitchen hadn’t been updated for more than 20 years so we had to start from scratch. The whole process through order, delivery and aftercare was immensely smooth and we have no hesitation in recommending you. The quality of all the units and worktop were splendid. Thanks so much.'
Livia & Adam from Newcastle 'We found out about DIY kitchens via an Instagram home renovation account and Adam also went to visit your store.
We've been really impressed with the quality of the kitchen and for an in frame kitchen the high street kitchen providers were just completely unaffordable in comparison! Adam fitted the kitchen himself with no prior experience and I couldn't be more proud of him - it looks fantastic. '
Rebecca from Sheffield 'Exceptional quality units, doors and door furniture. It is my dream kitchen and i'm so pleased with it! The customer service throughout was flawless.'
Louise from East Yorkshire 'Here are some photos of our completed DIY Kitchen. We first heard about DIY Kitchens via my brother who has also purchased a DIY Kitchen online for his new home. We decided to give the online designer a go and ended up creating both our kitchen and utility room online. The online designer was simple to use and the video tutorials helped too. It was good to know that a DIY Kitchen expert would check over our design before we completed the final order.
We have been delighted with both the quality and the overall finish of our DIY Kitchen. We opted for the Helmsley Painted Kitchen in Dove Grey which offered a timeless look with a sophisticated appeal. Delivery was easy to arrange and our after sales queries were dealt with incredibly swiftly and with no hassle. We also chose our Dusk worktop through DIY Kitchens which receives endless compliments. We were able to request a bespoke jumbo sized island which we just love! We will definitely recommend DIY kitchens to our friends and family. '
Laurie from Kent 'Loved everything about my project but especially DIY-Kitchens. From ordering to confirmation to delivery, everything ran to plan. So much so, I used the same units in my coffee lounge. Recommended by friends, I’ve since recommended to family and friends.'
Paul & Jane from Huddersfield 'Superb quality kitchens, my son also bought his kitchen from you.'
Mioko from Cardiff 'I want to share the pictures of kitchen we ordered from you. It is Harewood Heritage Green. '
Jay from Kent 'I found out about DIY Kitchens online via Instagram when I was searching for kitchen inspiration. I was finding that every photo I was liking and saving were from the same range from the same company - the Helmsley kitchen range from DIY kitchens. I knew straight away that this would be the kitchen for me and that if my kitchen could look half as stunning as theirs, I would be very happy.
I ordered some sample doors, although never went to the showroom, for me though I had read so many great reviews and was so happy with the sample doors that I didn’t need to see it in person. The doors are excellent quality, the units arrived ready made and were very sturdy and solid. I love the grain in the wood and the colour. We get so many compliments on this kitchen - from the builders who fit our kitchen through to family and friends when they come round to our house. Everyone has only good things to say and we couldn’t be happier! It’s a high end looking kitchen for a fraction of the cost!'
Heather from Hertfordshire 'We are absolutely thrilled with it and currently fitting the utility room to match! '
Michael from Bedfordshire 'I'm delighted with the overall layout of the kitchen, the light colour of the units and the quality of the in-frame cabinets, which add a touch of class, complement the quartz worktop and range cooker. Makes cooking a pleasure again!'
Mandy from London 'Very impressed, even our kitchen fitter was complimentary! Also the kitchen planner was the initial attraction to using DIY-kitchens as we wanted to play around with layouts.'
Katie from Suffolk 'We ordered the Helmsley kitchen in Dove Grey for our units and Cobham Blue for our island. We adapted the base of the units by fitting skirting and painting it the same colour to match the units. We used the paint provided by DIY Kitchens. We have been really pleased with the units and quality of service from DIY kitchens, thank you.'
Rebecca from Oxfordshire 'and beautiful. We are beyond happy with the quality, service and look of the DIY Kitchens. The whole process was easy and we feel so lucky to have got such a wonderful kitchen at such a low price. We’ve recommended them to a few people already.'
Siiri from Sidcup 'Just before Christmas we purchased a diy Helmsley kitchen in carbon and tern white. We are now ready to share some photos with you. We absolutely love the kitchen!'
Alice from Edinburgh 'Absolutely thrilled with everything. Colour is beautiful, quality is excellent, arrived in a great condition, very easy to fit, and look absolutely gorgeous. It's my favourite room in the house, could sit and stare at it all day!'
Rachel from Lancashire 'We’re so thrilled with it. The seating bench is made from your Helmsley inframe top boxes! I’ll be doing the same in the conservatory further along the line for a window seat too. The worktop is Silestone Yukon Suede.'
Craig & Hannah from Derbyshire 'Here are a few photos our our knew fantastic Hensley kitchen. Many thanks for the fantastic service provided from DIY kitchens, from start to finish.'
Zarah from the Wirral 'Absolutely love my kitchen, great quality, and very straight forward to fit. '
Linsey from London 'Here are some images of my completed kitchen extension, which started in March 2020 and was just completed at the end of last year. The process took much longer than anticipated due to Covid.
I am really pleased with the results and am excited to share the images with you. I have also attached some images of what the kitchen looked like before and during the extension.
I chose the Helmsley Bespoke range, opting for bespoke paited cabinets. I found the process on the whole very positive, as I felt quite nervous at the outset about designing the kitchen myself. The support staff were excellent, particularly Laura. She really explained everything and helped to compile the shopping basket correctly.'
Gruff & Kathy from Gwynedd 'Here are some before and after photos of our new kitchen and utility, which arrived in Feb 2020, just before lock down! As a result of the lock down, we had to install the kitchen and utility ourselves except for the worktops, electrics, plumbing and floor tiles. But, at least we had plenty of time to do the work during 2020 and are very impressed with our work, in view of the fact that we were novices.
The easy to follow instructions and pre assembled units were a massive help!! We were very impressed with the quality of the kitchen and the service we received from DIY Kitchens with deliveries on the promised dates and quick replacement of two slightly blemished doors and an AEG cooker, which was damaged at AEG before delivery to DIY Kitchens.
We were also very impressed with the quality of the Silestone Stellar worktops and fitting by Natural Stone Surfaces.
We chose the kitchen after our son and daughter in law had received a similar kitchen from DIY in 2019 and were very pleased with the quality and we were similarly impressed with our new kitchen and utility and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Thanks again to all the staff for the service and support which has resulted in a transformation of our 30 years old drab kitchen into a modern and bright cooking eating and living area.'
Isabelle From London 'We are so happy with it and it’s doing really well, 3.5 years on. It functions so well and we think we have a great value-for-money kitchen. We’ve recommended you guys to so many people. The carpenter who installed the kitchen was really impressed with the quality!'
Ashley From Essex 'Here is another kitchen project we have completed :) We are so pleased yet to have another quality kitchen!!!!! '

Cheryl from South Yorkshire 'Before, during and after pictures of our Helmsley inframe kitchen, in mussel with plain black quartz.'
Sarah from Sevenoaks 'We have been really happy with our decision to use DIY kitchens. It was an easy process and the quality of the cabinets is excellent. I love the fact we could customise the colour we wanted to make our dream kitchen. We found DIY online while searching for affordable kitchen options. '
Rosie & Mark From Brighton 'Having lived for far too long with a galley kitchen that was self-destructing, we were so excited to renew the whole space with the classic Helmsley in-frame kitchen.
Our experience with DIY kitchens has been fantastic. Our newly extended kitchen was a blank slate when we started. Still small in size, we knew we needed to make use of every square inch of space and found the array of shapes and sizes that the units came in allowed us to do so. The shallow 300mm cupboards allowed us to make excellent use of otherwise wasted space and our little kitchen bench was made by adapting a strengthened top-box unit on legs.
We wanted a bespoke kitchen and DIY Kitchens allowed us to get the look we wanted for a fraction of the cost. We requested that the cabinets came finished with just a primer coat so that we could hand-paint them in-situ for a more handmade look to match our colourful terrazzo floor.
The cabinets are incredibly solid and easy to fit and we're confident that they're going to last us for years to come. When we get bored or the paint begins to look tired, we can refresh the whole look of the kitchen with just a new lick of paint.
Our incredibly fussy cat loves the new space too. If only he would keep off the worktops and stick to the bench!
The whole interaction with DIY kitchens was a delight and our builder has already recommended the site to his latest clients. Thank you!
We heard about DIY kitchens from a google search for in-frame wooden kitchens.
Our wooden worktops are reclaimed school science desks The rest are Corian. A carpenter made the doors for our Hotpoint drawer fridges to match the DIY Kitchens cabinets. The tall broom cupboard and extractor box are also custom.'
Chris & June From Walton-on-Thames '
This has been very much a DIY project in a new-build house, as I have done all the installation myself. We discovered DIY Kitchens from a web search and were impressed with how the ordering process gives you a very large range of options to customise your kitchen just as you want it.
We chose a paler grey for the units around two walls, and a darker grey for the island. We placed the order just as the covid pandemic was starting, despite which delivery was only slightly delayed and I was able to progress the work steadily.
The units and accessories were well packed and straightforward to assemble. The quality was good and I have been particularly impressed with the toughness of the paint finish – it has withstood various minor knocks, and although you provided some touch up paint I have not so far had to use it.'
James & Sophie From Sutton Coldfield 'Helmsley Dove Grey & Norton Carbon. Very happy with our kitchen. The quality is excellent, and the service was brilliant, especially given the circumstances. I have recommended to a number of people since. We heard about DIY from a friend, who was also very pleased.
We opted for the in-frame shaker but wanted to create feature end panels and and the under island. So purchased the standard shaker doors and installed as per the pictures. Hope you enjoy the transformation!'
Laura from Yorkshire 'Here are my kitchen pictures. I have also included one during shot! I am an interior designer (Brick and Stone Interiors).'
Michelle from Chorley 'I wanted to share some updated pictures of out kitchen. We have had it installed 3 months now and still love it. '

Our furry friends, Toby and Annie, certainly think so too!!!'
Roz from Glasgow 'Here are see completed pictures of my kitchen. Apologies for taking so long to send photos of it. We were held back with a couple of things, which held back the completion. '
Vicky from London 'Finally got round to downloading pictures of the wonderful kitchen I bought from you last December. Finally got it done in January. It is a DIY Hemsley Kitchen and bespoke painted. So happy with it. I made the decision to buy from you!'
Rakesh & Mandy from Essex 'We are so pleased with our 2nd kitchen from you guys. Thank you so much for the help and support. The after sales support was fantastic too. I needed to order a couple of panels for the dishwasher and bin either side of the sink and extra paint. You were very helpful.
We first had the brown kitchen. We ripped this out and had a Malton sage green one put in. Once our extension plans were approved, we had the Helmsley Inframe kitchen installed in dove grey and bespoke for the island. '
Nichole & Ian From Dorset 'We just wanted to say how pleased we are with our finished kitchen. Pretty much everyone who's seen has asked for your details!'
Natalie from Essex 'Here are some kitchen pics of our beautiful kitchen. You really are a 5* company. I’ve told so many people about you! The online design tool is amazing too. I used it to plan the room, then photo-shopped the bits and pieces I wanted over the top, it was brilliant!'
Simon from Tring 'The units were easy to install due to the units already built. We discovered DIY kitchens on Google search engine.'
Michelle from Lancashire 'Hi please see pictures of completed kitchen. It looks amazing.'

Emily & Shea from Northamptionshire 'My boyfriend and I could not be happier with the service we have received from you from start to finish. You have made our kitchen journey such an easy and enjoyable experience and can’t thank or recommend you enough!
After my original order number, we have had additional orders since where your after sales team could not have been more helpful! Our house renovations Instagram account is @rlittlehouseproject
Thanks again for all your help! '
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.'
Shaun from Sheffield 'The kitchen units are very good quality, we struggled to find an inframe kitchen from other “high street” kitchen suppliers, DIY Kitchens had loads of different styles of inframe doors and a good choice of colours.
We chose to have tongue and groove end panels which added a touch of class to the finished design. We would highly recommend and the delivery was on time. We had 2 visits to the showroom, which is great, the cakes and free drinks was a great perk too.
We heard about DIY Kitchens initially from Google, but also searched Instagram for keywords such as Helmsley to get inspiration from other people’s kitchens.'
Katie & Gary from Northampton 'I’m just writing to say a huge thank you for helping us achieve our dream kitchen. From the first visit to your show room through to delivery and help with exchanges during fitting you have been nothing short of amazing and we are delighted with the finished results!
We’ve recommended you to lots of people and our neighbours having seen ours have also just ordered from you for their extension.
I’ve attached some pictures of the finished results of our Helmsley Dove Grey/bespoke painted kitchen of dreams.'
Lee from Shropshire 'I have attached images of our kitchen supplied by DIY Kitchens for use on you Facebook and Internet site if you wish.
I've also attached few images of the extension we had built for the new kitchen during the transition.
We ordered a fair amount of units for our island in a bespoke colour with the run in DIY kitchens' Dove Grey. All units are the inframe Harewood range. '
Steve from Cornwall 'Please find attached pictures of our completed kitchen and utility. Really pleased and definitely recommend.'

Francesca from Hampshire 'This is our kitchen transformation which was part of a larger renovation project to update our barn conversion home. We vaulted the ceiling of our former lounge which has now become our kitchen/diner.'
Claire from Essex 'Really pleased with quality of kitchen. We run a construction company and have worked with most of industry leaders and find the quality of our Helmsley kitchen to be superior to those within the same price bracket. Value for money is fantastic. It enabled me to get my dream inframe kitchen at an affordable price. '
Charlotte from Buckinghamshire 'We love our Helmsley kitchen
I heard about DIY kitchens on social media and was sceptical of the quality because of the price difference compared to other companies. We made the decision to visit the showroom, and could not have been more pleased with what we found.
The planning process was so enjoyable and I used the FAQ’s on the website to answer so may of my questions. For the bits I just could figure out, the customer service team were so helpful.
The kitchen was delivered on time and we were kept fully updated with delivery.
Our kitchen fitters were impressed with the quality and the ease to install.
Overall we will definitely be using DIY kitchen for the next one we do in a few years time!'
Stefania from London 'I love the colour, the feel, and quality of the cabinets and the worktops are devine. The team from DIY kitchens were very helpful and I must have called 30 odd times with different questions or checking something or other. I am so pleased with my kitchen, it is truly my dream kitchen. I went to visit their site and this helped me make my mind up - They also helped me make some vital changed to my planes which were invaluable. '
Cat from london 'I’m over the moon with our lovely kitchen. All the little details make it feel so luxurious. The corner pull out is amazing quality and the ordering process was smooth and straightforward. '
Aaron from Southport 'Here are some pictures of my Helmsley in-frame kitchen in cashmere.'
Hannah from Havant 'We found the ordering process easy and someone was always on the phone ready to help if we had a query. The delivery process was smooth and we were really pleased with the quality of the kitchen for the price.
Being able to customise the design with our own touches and painting it ourselves really added to the 'bespoke look' that we achieved. We have recommended DIY Kitchens to friends.'
Myra from Sussex 'We are over the moon with our Dove Grey inframe Harewood kitchen. Our friend and carpenter had used DIY kitchens for his own kitchen that looked amazing, and he recommended DIY kitchens to us.
Your website is very user friendly, your staff were very helpful and the quality of the cupboards etc is excellent. You have so much choice of style and colours.'
Sophie from Cheshire 'Here are some photos of our recently completed DIY Kitchens kitchen, we’re so pleased with it and have had so many comments from people who follow my Instagram account about how much they love it. If you’re able to tag me that would be great.'

This is the second house we have built and the second time we have used DIY Kitchens. Overall quality, robustness and aesthetics are second to none. '
Lauren from Eltham 'We love the way we’ve been able to create the period look that we were hoping to achieve. The kitchen units are of excellent quality and have received many complements from visitors, including the kitchen fitter. Meanwhile our builder thought the granite worktop was the best he’d ever seen and wants one for himself!'
Dave from Stockport 'Really impressed with the solid quality and colour finish of the units. Our kitchen fitter commented on how good the product was and how easy it was to fit. '
Gareth and Rachel from Hexham 'We absolutely love our kitchen, the quality is fantastic for the price we paid. We love the overall look we have been able to achieve and were able to do this with the easy to use website, beautiful showroom for ideas and assistance from staff via email to create the best look possible. The quality of the doors and units are fantastic and of very high end quality. We have recommended DIY kitchens to many of our friends and family.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through a family friend who had recently transformed her kitchen and spoke very highly of the company and we couldn’t agree more!'
Tina from Brentwood 'We wanted a bespoke look, and we were able to achieve this with Helmsley units. We opted for Welton units in the utility room, as these were less expensive, and the look is also exactly what we had hoped for.
The quality of all units is great, and the fact that we were able to buy extra paint (which was a perfect match) we were able to modify cabinets to meet our requirements. We used skirtings rather than plinths and built a shelf above the AGA, which added to the bespoke look.'
Vivienne from Leeds 'The kitchen looks amazing, I had my joiner build a plinth around it and it works really well its just perfect.'
Rachel & Ian from North Yorkshire 'Hello! Just to let you know that we have finally finished our DIYkitchen! We went with Helmsley Mussel. Here is our before and after pictures.'

We heard about DIY through the trade, my husband is a carpenter. '
Claire and Brian from Broadway 'Here are a few snaps of our new kitchen thanks to DIY kitchens! We got the Harewood Bespoke kitchen. The overall quality of the kitchen was very good and we were impressed with the high standard. We shopped around a ‘lot’ for our kitchen but DIY prices couldn’t be beaten! We would highly recommend to anyone who wants a bespoke kitchen at reasonable prices.'
Bonnie from Argyll 'I am sharing with you some photos of my AMAZING new kitchen in our new extension.
We didn’t think that we could afford our dream kitchen on such a tight budget and DIY kitchens has made it possible. The colour match meant we could create our own island from an upcycled dresser.
We live in the Islay of Islay and had the kitchen delivered to a mainland courier before being brought over. A friend also on Islay has one of your kitchens and recommended you.
The quality is excellent and we feel very lucky to have such a stunning kitchen. Our dog Mossy loves it too. '
Wayne From Croydon 'The overall quality of our kitchen was extremely good and we are happy that we found DIY kitchens . The customer service all through the buying & after sales process was excellent & we hence also went on to buy our utility room units from them.
We heard about DIY kitchens through a builder friend who had used DIY kitchens previously.'
Hazel from Bucks 'Just attaching a few photos of my new Helmsley kitchen, which I’m delighted with.'
Helena from Hertforshire 'I thought I will share a few pictures of our new kitchen with you. We are delighted with the quality and how easy and straightforward it was to fit it.'
David & Mary from Cambridge 'We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen. The bespoke painted units provide the designer look we envisioned at a fraction of the price. The units are well made and provide great storage for all our cooking needs.
The worktop is very hard wearing and seems impossible to scratch. The customer service we received was excellent with several emails and phone calls back and forth to ensure we were happy with our finished design before ordering - we would highly recommend DIY kitchens to anyone.
We heard about DIY kitchens via a family friend and were convinced by Which? magazine best buy reviews. '
Helen from Bristol 'Excellent quality of finish on doors and worktop. Absolutely love all of it. Particularly like the ‘le mans’ unit which works effortlessly. Sink unit and taps are superb quality and quartz worktop is a dream to use (and clean)
I found DIY kitchens online and decided to visit the showroom in Pontefract after reading customer testimonials. I honestly wasn’t expecting the testimonials to be true (!) but they were completely as described. We never expected to be able to design the kitchen ourselves and our builder was sceptical but quickly changed his mind once he’d started fitting the kitchen.
Our whole experience has been positive, we contacted customer support SO many times and each time our query or concern was resolved very quickly. It’s rare to find such a good company that really does deliver on its promises. The price was incredibly competitive considering the quality of the kitchen. I have no hesitation in using the firm again and have recommended the company to so many friends and family.'
Ben from Kwent 'Photos of our new kitchen.
We are extremely happy with the kitchen and the build quality and finish of the cabinets. For the price, they are far superior to other suppliers out there.
We heard about DIY Kitchen through my parents who purchased their kitchen from DIY about 4 years ago. '
Rachelle from Market Harborough 'We were doing a huge renovation and extension to our home and looking for a new kitchen. I had my heart set on a bespoke solid wood creation but we were recommended to consider DIY kitchens by my builder who had just installed one at another customer’s. They said were impressed by the weight and construction.
We visited the showroom and were impressed by the kitchens and prices. We are really pleased with the kitchen, I have everything I wanted, it’s really well made and it looks amazing. I would definitely recommend them. '
Chris from Southsea 'We found DIY kitchens online and it was the competitive price that made us buy from you. It was the right choice, the quality of the units and detailed finish is just outstanding. The online ordering tool helped but then the phone call from your expert suggesting that we perhaps need a few little bits was really appreciated.
All the units come pre assembled so it really speeds up the whole installation. Delivery team was very good and nice too. And the pack of biscuits and Yorkshire tea hidden inside one of the boxes was just perfect (just what you need in the middle of the job).
It was the first time we bought kitchen online but we’ll definitely do it again and definitely DIY kitchens.
Thank you DIY kitchens'
Steve from Northampton 'Here are some photos of the finished kitchen in our self build house in Northamptonshire. I found DIY Kitchens whilst searching online for possible suppliers and over the next couple of years found them to be incredibly helpful, answering my many queries as I honed our design.
We visited the showroom and were impressed with the quality of the units on display and are very pleased with the units now they are fitted. The pan drawers are sturdy and easily accommodated all of our paraphernalia. We particularly like the tall fridge, which easily holds a weekly shop with space to spare. The granite worktop (Star Galaxy granite 30mm) is practical and sets the tone for the room. Overall, we are delighted.'
Gina & James from Fulham '
I am emailing to share some photos of our kitchen that we recently had renovated. We recently purchased our first house in Fulham, London. As you can see from the photos, the kitchen was very dated and definitely needed opening up and renovating.
We were recommended to purchase our kitchen from yourselves by our builders, and I’m so glad that we did. The service that we received from yourselves throughout was fantastic. We visited your showroom in Yorkshire, and found our dream kitchen. We chose to put our own stamp on our kitchen by having it bespoke painted.
With the help of your team, we were able to design and order our dream kitchen! Our kitchen arrived on time with no delays, and everything was in perfect condition. Our builders were able to fit the kitchen for us totally hassle free in less than two days.
The quality of our kitchen is superb, the doors are nice and thick, and everything feels very substantial. Having looked at other manufacturers, we can truly say that the quality of your kitchens far outshone your competitors, in our opinion.
I hope that you enjoy looking at our photos, and thank you for making our dreams come true. '
David from France 'We are very pleased indeed with our kitchen. Your service was excellent and everything was as described by you and your website.
The ordering process was hassle free and you could not have been more helpful.
We live in France and our friends can't believe how we got to get such a brilliant deal and the service from a DIY kitchen site online. Not possible, they said!!
Here are the pictures. I hope you will appreciate the quality of our installation, albeit small.'
Naomi from Shoreham-by-sea 'I would just like to say a huge thank you to you all for all the assistance you've provided to help us finally achieve our dream kitchen. We are so pleased with not only how it looks but also how well made every piece is - our builders were particularly impressed with how sturdy the legs are and how solid each unit is.
My family love our new larder unit that now houses all their snacks and my baking supplies. I was inspired with the design after a visit to your showroom, where staff were so helpful and accommodating of us all (I think we - myself, partner & 3 young children - were in the showroom for over 3 hours).
You're staff we're so helpful on the phone and email responses we're also prompt. Designing the kitchen was quite an enjoyable experience too. Having never bought, let alone design, a new kitchen before, the 3D planner was an excellent way for me to experiment and visualise what units I wanted and where to put them.
Olivia, in particular who helped me check my final design was amazing! She helped me sort out all my technical issues and work out what I needed to include and fulfil the image I had in my head. I have had numerous friends ask where we got our kitchen from and I have not hesitated to recommend DIY kitchens to everyone.
I think my own parents are planning a trip from the West Country to Yorkshire just to visit the showroom as they are so impressed with the quality, which really is saying something!'
Matt & Rhea from North Boarhunt 'We love the kitchen. Great quality for a great price! Would definitely use again and we recommend to all our friends. Great customer service assisting us with the design.'
Grahame & Sue from Norfolk 'Please find attached pictures of the new kitchen in our new house which I have just built. The kitchen has taken me some time to install but we weren’t in a hurry.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through a search of the internet and visited the showroom a couple of times. We were very impressed by what we saw on our visits hence our order.
As a property developer building 2 or 3 properties a year, I have dealt with several kitchen companies both good and poor and was, therefore, somewhat nervous about what we were ordering. However, the design/order process was all good and we have been very pleased with the quality of the product and the service we received. Indeed I will very likely return to DIY Kitchens for my current development project. '
Mark from West Sussex 'Absolutely love our kitchen, the units and really good quality and everything comes pre assembled, even the draws! We heard about you online. '
Judy from Northumberland 'I'm attaching some photos of my kitchen. We have very high ceilings and so used the tall units as wall units to fill the space. I love it.'
Jason From Cambridgeshire 'I was recommended using DIY Kitchens by a friend of mine who had not purchased from you himself but had heard great things from a friend. As this recommendation was 3rd hand I was skeptical and hesitant to purchase from a website.
I decided to Visit your showroom and all my concerns soon disappeared as the build quality of the kitchens, support and choices you had to offer soon became clear.
We went on and purchased our kitchen from you along with the units for a utility room. I found the process easy and very transparent with no hidden charges, whenever I had a question the online support team were quick to respond. We had a few issues with delivered items ie one broken and one on back order but again customer services were quick to respond and the items were delivered within that week and did not hold up my fitting.
Overall I have enjoyed purchasing from DIY Kitchens. Great Products and Great customer support to back it up. '
Laura from Somerset 'We were recommended DIY Kitchens by a friend, as we wanted a high quality painted kitchen and their recommendation was spot on!
We were blown away by every aspect of DIY Kitchens. The kitchen itself is a real statement and is the centre of conversation when people visit.... most can’t believe it is an internet kitchen. It was really easy to design using the planning tool and the service at every stage was fantastic.
We absolutely love the final result. After a long extension building process, I now finally have my dream kitchen! '
Jack from Essex 'Please find attached three pictures of our kitchen. I’m a floor layer, and regularly pass your details on since having this lovely kitchen! We’re super chuffed! Thanks.'
Athena from Kent 'We just wanted to pop you a note to tell you how thrilled we are with our kitchen units. The process has been easy, delivery service fantastic, missing items sorted very quickly and the quality is brilliant.
We looked at a lot of options. From high end to low end. After reading so many positive reviews we decided DIY was the right way to go. We just couldn't justify spending anything more and your price point was appropriate for our needs and we were happy we could still create exactly the look and layout we were after.
The builder said it was so easy to fit. A big plus coming full assembled including the drawers and doors all in and on.
Hugely excited to be cooking our FIRST breakfast in it today!
Thank you. You are brilliant and we can't wait to order our island (the wooden box on the floor in the photo is hiding electrics for the island) to finish it off. '
Allister & Tracy from Somerset 'Our Helmsley bespoke painted kitchen. We have been delighted by the quality of the units and how we were able to customise the colour of the doors and carcasses.
We have a separate utility which was completed at the same time and which we are equally as delighted with.
The kitchen was installed by my husband and the quality of the pre built units was excellent and made this so much easier than if we’d chosen a flat pack kitchen from a competitor.
Comments from friends and family have been very positive and they have been surprised at the competitive price. We believe we have achieved a designer kitchen but at a fraction of the cost. '
Simon from Buckinghamshire 'The kitchen has now been installed and we are very pleased with it, '
Laura from Harrogate 'I am sending three shots of the kitchen we put in from you in Harrogate.
I love that your units come in so many sizes and can be painted in whatever colour you want. The inframe doors look like very high end designer kitchens without the enormous price tag. A joiner recommended you. '
Aaisha from London 'These are the pictures of my Helmsley kitchen for your website. The cupboards are in White and Grey on the island. Thanks '
Lee & Vicki from Kent 'Here is our new Helmsley kitchen, we are obviously very happy how it turned out! '
Tom from Isle of Wight 'Great Quality solid units, great value too! Exactly what I ordered and delivered early too. Nice that it all comes put together, get the impression that the kitchen is going to last a very long time. thumbs up team. '
Emma from London 'My husband and I ordered the Helmsley Bespoke kitchen from you guys earlier this year and I'm sharing photos of it for your Customer Kitchens gallery.
The bricks are real. The kitchen is a new extension that we had built this year and they are the original bricks from the back of the house. My hubby made up a 50/50 emulsion/water mix to white wash them and then used a damp cloth to dabb off and reveal the brick texture. It took him ages ;-).
We are so pleased with the quality of them and have had so many nice comments from friends. Our builder was very impressed with them too. Thank you! '
Rachael and Liam from Cottingham 'We are absolutely in love with our Helmsley bespoke kitchen! The quality is brilliant and we have received so many complements from our friends and family. Being able to choose from such a range of colours has allowed us to really make it individual to us.
We were recommended from a friend who is a kitchen fitter - he stated some of the best kitchens he has fitted have been from DIY kitchens - which is great as he did ours!
The showroom was amazing, bigger than many we’ve been to and the staff really helpful. As we ordered it ourselves we were able to build our own island and put all the touches in that we wanted. We definitely recommend.'
Sabiha from Newcastle 'Just wanted to share my finished kitchen. Lovely quality and service!love how it has turned out! Thanks!'
Alison from Wells 'Completed kitchen using Harewood in graphite and grey. These are a selection of photos taken of our recently completed kitchen. We are delighted with the end result!'
Paul from Whetstone 'The completed Helmsley Bespoke Painted kitchen with Quartz tops '
Yvonne & Phil from Abingdon 'Pictures of our wonderful kitchen. Great quality & really helpful sales and aftersales.'
Victoria from Essex 'Hi, here is one of your kitchens - Helmsley in light grey with bespoke colour island. Feel free to share on your insta feed ..... Have recommended to everyone I know - I wanted Tom Howley and I achieved the same look for just 20k including everything - fitting, high end appliances and the whole kitchen and worktop - this would have cost me about 40-50k with them.'
Shweta from London 'Please find attached the pics of our kitchen that we recently got done.
We are indeed very happy with the overall quality and look of our kitchen and are very happy that we chose DIY kitchens. We had come across your company via reviews on the internet and then our kitchen fitter further added to our decision of selecting you guys as he only had good things to say about your kitchens.
I have also attached my daughter's kitchen which is at one corner of the kitchen'
Gabrielle & Adrian from Tain 'We had our kitchen delivered last August for our self build house and have wanted to send you pictures to say how pleased we are with all of it. Unfortunately our home is not yet complete but I will forward more pics to you.
We loved the service we received from you and would certainly recommend you all. Thank you. '
Sharon from Surrey 'Please find attached some pics of our new Harewood kitchen. I hope you can use them. I found the real kitchens section of the website very helpful.
I wasn’t very confident about planning my new kitchen so I hired an independent kitchen designer. He had designed a couple of diy kitchens for other customers and was able to reassure me about the quality. He measured up and created the plan on software so that I could get several views of the kitchen and created a list for me to place my order!
The kitchen was going into a new room and I wanted proper plans for our builders to get all the electrics and waste etc in the right place. Having been through the process I probably could have done it myself quite easily but for the price of a cupboard I think it was worth the peace of mind.
I’m very pleased with the finished results it looks good and works well.
Worktop: Silestone eternal statuario. Handles: hafele mulberry
Bruno the cat enjoys the filtered water tap!'
Nikki from Scarborough 'We are blown away with the quality and workmanship of the cabinets and worktop. There were so many colours to choose from. The grain and colour of the doors are so tactile and the granite worktop brings the whole kitchen together and complements its surroundings.'
Julie & Keith from Worcestershire 'Delighted with the kitchen, quality of the units, style, colour range and the overall service, we fitted it ourselves no need for professionals. DIY Kitchens was recommended to us by our son who had purchased some units previously.'
Rob from Newcastle Upon Tyne 'Hello in addition to the photos we had your company recommended by my friend who is a cabinetmaker and he said how the quality was good and how nice they were to fit.
He wasn't wrong and we had good customer service throughout even correcting an oven housing size which I had wrongly ordered.
Very pleased with the kitchen as a whole. '
Emma from Surrey 'We absolutely love our new kitchen. The quality and finish are excellent and the colour match is superb. It has transformed our space and created a bright family room for living and entertaining - couldn’t ask for more. Everyone comments on how lovely it is! '
Mel from Camberley 'We love our new space and spend so much time in it now. I love to cook so I probably appreciate it the most. When I first started out looking at kitchen design I was dis-heartened because the look I wanted to achieve in all the Kitchen Design outlets was totally out of my budget.
I was recommended to you by a friend of a friend and was nervous initially to take responsibility for the design. However, with the help of your graph paper and cut-out unit stencils, and with A LOT of help from your Customer Service team, I DID IT…
So, thank you! You have made my dream kitchen come true. '
Teresa from London 'Many thanks for the kitchen cabinets, which I love and are even better quality than I had hoped (and my builders have also said they are much better quality than Wickes, Howdens etc). '
Chancelle from London 'I am so excited about the kitchen. It looks absolutely fabulous.'
Rosie from Tottenham 'Here is an image of my newly fitted kitchen purchased from DIY kitchens in June. It's a shaker Innova Helmsley Bespoke painted kitchen. '
Jane from Grimsby 'I'd like to share pictures of my diy kitchens kitchen with you. I'm so in love with it and it has truly made cooking a joy - even the drudgery of everyday family teatime seems better and easier with my new kitchen! Everyone who visits says "WOW" when they enter the room!
I am a 44 year old female with a little diy experience and apart from needing help with lifting the wall units and mantle and having a professional cut and fit the worktops I fitted the kitchen myself - including the fridge and freezer! That's how easy it is that they come ready built! The fact I 'built' it makes me even more proud of it. The quality of the units, doors and worktop is incredible - the joiner who fitted the worktop couldn't believe how solid they were and he fits kitchens!
I was very impressed with the online help when ordering too - your team were invaluable - and I asked a lot of questions and even ordered a bespoke unit! I love all of my integrated appliances - especially the washing machine! My freezer is hidden in the oak units and all of the others are hidden in the cream units. I am just thrilled to bits with my kitchen!'
David from Wolviston '(Harewood Dakar and Oak) -
Would we use DIY Kitchens again? A definite yes. We found DIY Kitchens whilst searching online for alternatives to the usual high Street retailers.
Having had a few quotes, and then comparing against DIY Kitchens, it was obvious that their prices were very competitive. What we liked was being able to price alternative kitchen styles and designs to see how these fitted our budget, without having to spend hours in kitchen showrooms!
We visited their showroom twice. If you can get there, I would recommend it. We used the sample door service which was great for checking colours, they can look quite different in different lighting.
Ordering was very straightforward. Being able to amend the order upto the cutoff time was really useful as we added some additional units just before the cutoff without a problem.
Delivery was via the two man delivery and everything was very well packaged. I would recommend the two man delivery unless you have a few strong people to hand.
With being fully assembled the units can be heavy. We used the online support both before and after ordering and this was very straightforward.
We are really pleased with the final kitchen and quality of all the units. Being fully assembled saves a lot of time and really adds to quality of the final installation, especially if to you choose to fit yourself as we did. '
Olive from Great Houghton 'Harewood cashmere inframe kitchen. All designed and installed by S.R kitchens '
Sylvia from Kent 'I love my new kitchen and am very proud of it. The mix of natural Harewood oak base units and painted top units works very well together.
The quality of the units and finish outshone other high street kitchens that we looked at. Value for money I suggest it can’t be beaten. The soft close hinges and the large pan drawer give me great pleasure. I looked high and low for handles that I liked as unfortunately the handles on your display kitchen had been discontinued. I found what I wanted on the internet but they were very expensive. I then looked back through your selection and you had the exact model a great deal cheaper.
I have had several comments from men as well as ladies on the handles. I have recommended your kitchens to anyone who wants to know and when I tell them how much the units cost, they are amazed.
I had to ring several times when the kitchen was being fitted as I had overlooked some items that were necessary, this being due to the fact I had never designed my own kitchen before, all the items I requested were speedily forwarded so no delay for the fitter. A big thank you to everyone for being so understanding and efficient.'
Sandra from Criccieth 'The inspiration for our kitchen colour scheme was the environment around our 13th century cottage.
Being in Wales there is a lot of slate and the woodland surrounding us so we opted for a two tone look to compliment the oak wall cupboards we already had. We love it and think it looks stunning. Our fitter was so impressed with the quality of the build he took your details to order his kitchen and we were recommended by our son who had one of your kitchens and is just about to order another.
If I ever need another kitchen I will definitely be buying it from you again.'
Catherine from Cardiff 'Hi DIY-Kitchens, I thought I would send you the picture of our Harewood Cashmere Kitchen. We haven't finished our kitchen yet as you can see but we couldn't be happier with the quality and style of it. Many thanks'
Ross from Crackington Haven 'Really impressed with the the kitchen construction, especially small details like the carcass feet, that are high quality. Being able to choose our own colour made it that little bit more special. We wanted a framed kitchen at a reasonable cost and got it through DIY Kitchens.'
Chris from Wokingham 'Dear Diy Kitchens, these pictures are for your my kitchens section, to say thanks. We are very impressed with the quality of the kitchen and after 6 months of family use it is holding up well. No chips in the paint or issues with the doors or carcasses.
I am very please with the soft close draws, and high sides for the pan draws which are a great feature.
The ability to specify custom colours was a great bonus.
I have attached several photos, no cute pet unfortunately. (The rabbits are not going on the worktop!)'
Ceri from South Wales 'Please find attached some picture of our new kitchen,
We’re incredibly happy with the build quality and also the finish, we had quotes from other companies for similar units and we were quoted approx. £25k for completed kitchen, our Kitchens DIY kitchen was half the price with no compromise on the quality, this included the appliances and also the cost of the wall and floor tiles which we sourced online. Managed to get a butchers block from Next in the sale which matched perfectly and also had some built in seating made which we painted to match, kitchen looks amazing and we are absolutely over the moon with it. '
Jodi from London 'I was incredibly impressed (and relieved!) when the kitchen units arrived. I bought online without a visit to the showroom, although I had trawled the internet high and low for reviews and photos of customers experiences of DIY Kitchens. I ordered the Helmsley Bespoke Painted Kitchen in 2 different colours. Having opted for platinum service delivery, the units arrived on the nominated day and were extremely well packaged. Even my kitchen fitters commented that they had never seen kitchen units so well protected before. As soon as the units were unwrapped I knew that I had made the right choice. The quality of the cabinets is amazing and I now feel like I have a kitchen that competes with (or is better than!) some of those overpriced high street kitchen retailers.
Putting the kitchen together on paper was all consuming....but I loved it. We wanted to retain our hob, sink and 2 existing worktops, which meant that I needed numerous unit sizing options to ensure I could put together an attractive yet practical run of units that would fit perfectly under our existing worktop measurements. This is really where DIY Kitchens comes into its own. So many size and range choices. Even better was the ability to play around with different configurations and having transparent pricing. I could know within an instant whether a particular configuration was going to cost too much money, rather than waiting for a kitchen planner to come up with a "magic number" that I would have no idea how it was arrived at or what to do about it if it was too expensive for our budget.
I also wanted a particular type of cornicing and square chamfered pilasters that aren't widely available (and were not available from DIY Kitchens at the time of ordering either). I sourced those items elsewhere and had them sprayed in my bespoke colours to match. Easy. It all came together seamlessly.
We are delighted with our kitchen which has been operational for the last 3 months. Now all I have to do is stop bragging about how "cheap" it was!'
Annika from Eastbourne 'We had a few high street kitchen retailers round for quotes for our new kitchen and were shocked at the various quotes we received.
So after a quick search on the internet we found DIY kitchens, and after reading the amazing reviews on trust pilot we decided to make the leap and order online. We were a bit worried about what items to order but after a couple of telephone calls it was very straight forward.Delivery was quick and on time.
Our carpenter noted that this was one of the best made kitchens he has installed and even told us that he was going to use DIY kitchens in his house.
All in all delighted with our kitchen - We used DIY kitchens for the worktop as well, ice chips quartz- (from order to installation was approx 2 weeks and the installers were great)
Thank you for a professional service and a great product'
Owen from Buckinghamshire 'I have now attached three pictures of the hand painted cupboards - which look really good.'
Lynn & Kevin from Colchester 'After looking at a Second Nature Kitchen in a local showroom I went on line and discovered DIY Kitchens.com. I was really pleased to see that I could afford the kitchen that I wanted, if it came directly from you. We travelled to Yorkshire to visit your showroom which was really useful, so much to see. We had intended to buy a painted kitchen but fell in love with Harewood Oak. If you travel to Yorkshire try and avoid a Saturday as it is very busy. The staff were very helpful both in the showroom and later over the phone. With their help we were able to customise our kitchen.
We had to delay delivery twice but this was not a problem. Upon delivery we had a couple of damaged /incorrect items and I also returned two panels that I had bought in error. All were replaced/refunded.
We are really pleased with the quality and build of our kitchen and it was amazing value for money. I love the radius feature ends, the 300mm deep cupboards on the island and the large drawers. We were able to fit it all ourselves. We bought the granite locally as we could not find what we wanted in Yorkshire.
We bought enough units to do our kitchen, utility room and to build a cupboard over the boiler in the cloakroom. This included doors and a side panel to build an extra deep laundry cupboard for the utility room. This has allowed me to stack the washing machine and tumble drier and still have room on top for the laundry basket and the ironing board at the side (sorry I could not get a good picture of this).
We love the finished kitchen and will return to DIY Kitchens.com to buy cupboards for other parts of our house.'
Emma from Cheshire 'I heard about diy kitchens from a friend that used them.
After much research I ordered the bespoke Harewood inFrame range.
Ordering from diy kitchens was very easy The support team were very helpful and the website was very informative.
The kitchen Unites arrived with no issues.
Fitters I used said the units were very well built and the quality of the doors was very good.
I could not of been happier with how my kitchen turned out and would definitely use diy kitchens again( but I'm not planning on changing my kitchen any time soon.) '
Chris from Burwell 'Good quality units, excellent customer support, very competitive pricing and a bit of fun along the way.’
Following a new kitchen extension and some ‘issues’ with the build we needed to re-visit our proposed new kitchen project.
We had the ridiculous quotes from some prestige kitchen companies and also visited numerous local manufacturers and the main DIY chain stores.
Several conversations with your very helpful pre-sales staff, a lot of playing using your planning tools convinced us to pursue what we wanted with DIY – and we are pleased we did.
We did make a couple of visits to your showroom to assess your units and colours in ‘real life’. Staff were most helpful and we even got an impromptu tour of the manufacturing facility.
Finally we ordered and although found the website ordering a bit cumbersome when repeating the same unit it all went without a hitch and the total price was very acceptable.
We did have a few issues as we had requested a specific colour for some of the units and there was some confusion over the supply of a solid vs glazed door of a particular size. This was picked up by your customer support/post sales staff who contacted us and helped to resolve without issue.
We were kept informed of progress throughout your manufacturing and delivery process which was great. Your delivery team were brilliant – they were 15 minutes (yes minutes) early and were very efficient on getting the units into our premises even in the dark and the rain.
The packaging was very good – (wish I had shares in card and bubble wrap) – although there were a couple of small manufacturing marks on two units. Mentioned this to your customer support (who had called us to check all was OK) and they sent out replacements – no question.
Your customer support ticketing system works very well although might seem a little alien to those not used to that sort of system.However, it works well, questions were resolved promptly and accurately.So we are impressed with the company, now onto the kitchen…
The fitting was actually quite enjoyable and went together well and easily. Units all fitted as we had planned although we subsequently did order some additional shelves and brackets once it was all in place.
Absolutely no issue with any of the units although as this is all ‘diy’ there were a few concerns when fitting appliances and even though you are ‘on your own’ your customer support were always able to offer advice.
Continually ‘showing off’ the new kitchen to the extent that friends are now re-fitting their own and are,( if have not already done so), going to use DIY-Kitchens.
Been in 6 months now and still very pleases we used DIY-Kitchens, If I had another house I would be using you again and looking forward to fitting it.'
Trevor from Wotton Under Edge '
The kitchen is well constructed very accurately made with no oversized or undersized units.
The door construction was very good quality and the soft close mechanisms worked a treat. The in-frame design required very little final adjustment.
We chose Corian work tops from CJEM in Fishponds Bristol. The variations and range of units was considerable and enabled us to design our perfect kitchen. We could not achieve this with the other high street kitchen suppliers, particularly the internal curved door units.
From knocking down a dividing wall and installing a new oak beam we have doubled the size of our kitchen and made it more practicable. The underfloor heating radiates a very comfortable even heat. It has taken a lot of thought, hard work and time, but now we have a great kitchen.
It all started from a detailed scale drawing and many views of the DIY Kitchen web site to select the correct units. I paid a visit to the factory before placing the order which was worth while. People may think that just because it's called DIY kitchens that you are getting a cheap substandard kitchen. This is far from the case and you are getting a VERY high quality kitchen, which if you are bold enough will save you tons of money. Our initial design drawings as in the photo. '
Ashley from Essex 'We are so pleased with the Inframe Bespoke painted kitchen. Its just amazing!
We will always be ordering from you guys in future! The colours are matched to Bespoke White.
Island and Bespoke Grey on the main back cabinets. '
Chris from Essex 'Hello DIY Kitchens, please see some pics attached. We had a great experience and are very happy with our final product. Thank you again. '
Joanna from Surrey 'We chose an in-frame kitchen (Harewood Painted Alabaster and Grey) as we live in a character country house and wanted it to be in keeping.
The kitchen has lots of character of its own (stone wall, vaulted ceiling, beams) so wanted to keep it clean and neutral with mainly Harewood alabaster. I added some units in grey which I think work really well as break up the alabaster.
I wanted tall units rather than lots of wall units to help keep it as uncluttered looking as possible (a hard task in our household!).
I also chose one lone unit in Harewood Oak as we have oak beams and an oak table so this helped bring it together.
My favourite parts of the kitchen (apart from the quality) is the pull out larder, pull out bin, large pan drawers and that nearly all the cupboard handles go horizontally (which helps it look less cluttered, more stream lined and appeases me immensely!)
We used a grey quartz for the work top.
I have since recommended you to several people. My sister has since placed an order and I am ordering Luca Gloss Dove Grey for our rental apartment in London. I also think that will look fabulous.
We are very pleased with our kitchen and I hope you enjoy the photos! And as it happened, I really enjoying designing the layout and learning about end panels, corner posts and magic corner spacing! '
Anna from Hertfordshire 'Please find our Harewood Grey kitchen images attached. Upper cabinets are white. Everyone from the builder, electrician, glass installation people and plumber have taken your details as they were so impressed by the quality. Thank you. '
Kara from Berkshire 'We're absolutely delighted with our new kitchen. It's the real hub of the house! I can't keep my husband out now!
We heard about DIY Kitchens online, and when mentioning them to friends and family we got great feedback. '
Marie from Chatham 'Pictures of my Harewood Alabaster kitchen.
I bought the lights from John Lewis and the large tiles are from Tile and Stone Medway. '
Janet from Fairburn '
Please see attached photographs of our kitchen which we purchased from DIY-Kitchens.
We are more than happy with the quality and service provided by yourselves and would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family - which we already have! '
Chris from Milton Keynes 'The units were excellent and a great saving on cost. (Fitted my own worktops.) My kitchen fitter was very impressed.'
Roger from Nottingham 'Here are pictures of our lovely new kitchen. We are so happy with the overall results. I'd never have thought ordering something as complicated as a kitchen 'on line' would be so easy.
DIY Kitchens customer service was so professional, friendly and reassuring. Not a single piece was missing!
Our kitchen fitter was amazed at the quality of the pre-built units. (Which I may add, meant the kitchen was fitted much more quickly as he didn't need to build the cabinets himself)
I have already recommended DIY Kitchens to many of our friends.
In short, we got a better quality, higher spec kitchen for less money than a lower spec kitchen from the high street!
Rachel and Patrick from West Yorkshire 'Hi DIY kitchens, here is our lovely kitchen using harewood grey on island units and mussel on main units. We live in Holmfirth West Yorkshire and discovered diy kitchens searching online for quality but reasonable prices. We love our kitchen and fitting was easy with pre assembled units. Thanks. '
Linda from Essex 'We are really pleased with our kitchen. It was so easy to install. Would never order flat pack again. Everyone who visits wants to know where we got it.'
Geoff & Diane from Shropshire 'Further to you email last week asking for pictures, I have attached three above. It looks much better in real life and we are very pleased with it. '
Adam from Leigh on sea 'Very satisfied with quality of kitchen delivery was excellent kitchen all packaged well Two cupboard doors missing due to quality control but arrived 1 week later Would recommend this kitchen company very happy '
Tom from Sevenoaks 'We love the overall look of the kitchen. We liked the inframe style that the Milton provided and the fact that you can see the wood grain through the paint. We really wanted two different colours for the base and wall units so were really impressed with the fact we could get them sprayed any colour that we wanted. We are really happy with the way it turned out!'
Lisa from Lincolnshire 'Hi we are thrilled with our new kitchen which was completed Christmas week! My kitchen is from the Harewood range in Alabaster. The appliances are mostly AEG. I found the whole experience with Diy kitchens a pleasure in what can be a stressful time (choosing a new kitchen) your staff were very helpful in advising and a couple of visits to the showroom were so worthwhile.'
David And Leesa from Birstall 'We are overjoyed with high build quality of these units....... A view we share with the professional joiners that fit it.They say DIY kitchen units are the best made units they know!! (However they did eat the complimentary Fox's biscuits that was delivered!!) Many thanks '
Emma from Surrrey 'I am pleased to share my fabulous new kitchen with you, photos attached.
The finished result is stunning and the cabinets are solid and beautiful. We are also very pleased with the sink and tap that we ordered from you. The whole kitchen went together so quickly, it really sped up the painful renovations. Would not hesitate to recommend or use again. '
Martine from West Sussex 'Please find a few pictures of our recently fitted Harewood Cornflower Blue In-frame Kitchen - we are extremely pleased and very Happy with the final result - the finish, colour and construction of these Units and Doors are top quality and the service received from your Staff was equal to that - extremely helpful from start to finish - my husband is a Builder and would have no hesitation in recommending yourselves to Family, Friends and Clients in the future.'
Martyn from Brecon 'Great kitchen. Amazing value for money. Wife happy as can be!'
Craig from Sheffield 'Please find attached photos of Harewood Mussel kitchen purchased last year. Excellent quality kitchen, easy ordering process, great customer service and showroom helped massively with our choice. '
Will from Derby 'My overall impression of the kitchen is one of premium quality, but at a much lower than premium price.
I installed it myself and it was easy due to the pre-built units, adjustable legs and supplied joining screws/bolts.
The drawer runners and door hinges are also of premium quality enabling adjustment of the fronts in all directions for a perfect fit!
I would highly recommend DIY kitchens to anyone!'
Mike from Lincoln 'I enclose pictures of our finished kitchen supplied by you earlier this year. As we have made some major alterations to our house it has taken a lot longer than expected to take the pictures. We are delighted with the end results. Please feel free to use any photo you wish for your website. '
Graham from Devon 'We ordered a kitchen through DIY-Kitchens.com who proved to be very good. '
Ann from Wrexham 'We heard about kitchens on Internet, and were extremely pleased with the quality. Our kitchen fitter who is very experienced and is known locally as Jimmy Kitchen said the were very good quality as good as ones costing a lot more.
We added Taurus skirting board instead of a plinth and used tongue and grooved for end panels.
Everyone has admired the kitchen and can't believe how cheap it was, top quality. '
Catherine from Reading 'The Harewood Painted kitchen is a heavy, good quality build, which gives the impression that it will stand up to the kitchen demands of 3 children, 2 cats and 2 dubious cooks! Being able to order different colours meant I was able to get a unique look, off the shelf. '
