Callum & Jade From Lincoln "Here are the before and after photos of kitchen project!

Our overall opinion of the kitchen is very positive. The quality of the kitchen is exceptional and pound for pound the best on the market available. The worktop supplied by Natural Stone Surfaces is excellent and gets many compliments. Our joiner was a bit sceptical of fitting the kitchen at first as he had not heard of Diy-kitchens before. He was very impressed with the quality overall and couldn't believe the price we paid. He is now happy to recommend Diy-Kitchens to his customers.

I found Diy-Kitchens from a Google search. I then went on to read many reviews on the company and decided to drive down to the showroom to make sure the reviews met our expectations. A couple of weeks later and a few designs later we ordered."

Rachel from London "Here are photos of my finshed kitchen, pre starting and during the building work as well. The new kitchen was fitted into our brand new extension.

I love our new kitchen. The variety and options available - tailorable - meant that I could order the right kitchen for us without having the flex to a limited range.

The quality of the product is fantastic. I love the finish inside and out. It looks fantastic and is really practical to use. The set up hides the details with built in bins etc and enables us to maximise the space through use of racks and a magic corner."

Robbie from Sunderland "Pictures of the completed Luca matt carbon kitchen. Many Thanks."

Katharine from West Harrow "We are thrilled with the kitchen, the build quality is fantastic & great value for money!

Our builder was hugely impressed with the quality and said he would recommend you to others. One unit arrived damaged in transit (which happens), but after some back and forth communication, a new unit was delivered the next day, great service!

Also lovely touch with the tea and biscuits for the fitters, a small thing, but very thoughtful!”

I first heard about DIY kitchens via a group called House talk on Facebook and I was recommended to you by my sister in law. I have since recommended DIY Kitchens to others on another Facebook group. "

Liam from Newcastle "I hope you like our kitchen pictures, we even went to the effort of getting some flowers and a pineapple for the background!"

Jenny from Cornwall "Good solid quality, unit feet reassuringly robust, decent thickness back panels. End panels nicely protected with plastic film for delivery."

Charles & Dean from London "We are over the moon about our DIY Kitchen - Great customer service and fantastic quality. We enjoyed being fully in charge of the design and being able to choose every last detail to suit our needs."

Marta from Sussex "We came to DIY Kitchens following friends’ recommendations and we could not be happier. Delivery was prompt, the quality of the kitchen is impeccable and the after-sales support was great too. We wanted a bespoke colour originally but after seeing the set colours in the showroom, we managed to find a combination that matched our preferences perfectly. Would highly recommend. "

Liz from Goldsborough "Dealt with Jon who was superb – couldn’t have been more helpful. Found DIY Kitchens in 2014 via a Google search for ‘white matt handless kitchens’ which was the only company at the time to sell matt handless kitchens.

This is the second property we have bought this exact kitchen for so already had the comfort of having used DIY Kitchens and it being a very positive exercise and knowing how good the product was.

The quality of the carcasses and doors is far superior to other makes and this was confirmed by our kitchen fitter who told us that the carcasses are thicker and more robust than other kitchen suppliers’ products. My favourite part of the kitchen is the walk in larder unit."

Elaine from Lancashire "We love our kitchen, everything is good quality, looks expensive although was very competitively prices, we love the colour and the wood worktop is striking!

The service we received when looking around the showroom was fantastic and lots of advice when ordering! The after sales was also excellent and any queries answered immediately! We would have and will continue to recommend diy kitchens!

We heard about you via our builder, he also recommended we look around the showroom, we did and it was well worth the couple of hours drive to it."

Brigid from London "Here are some photos of our tiny galley kitchen newly renovated. (I haven't sent a picture of its previous c. 1980s, state because the photo doesn't really show how awful it was!)

Our kitchen's in an early 1950s Listed estate, so we had no chance of tearing down the two built-in cupboards or altering the position of the walls! Basically it's 1.34m wide (with an extra 58cm in front of the hatch to the living room), and 3.38m long. Into this we had to fit a sink, cooker, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. (It's been a nightmare to photograph!)

We're impressed with the substantial quality of your units. We also appreciate that they're made in many sizes - very important since our flat was designed in pre-metric days; the variety of widths available allowed us to squeeze in the appliances and storage we needed.

Overall we're delighted! Congratulations and many thanks!"

Mary from Bingley "Here are some photos of the kitchen we bought from you last year. It isn't finished but looking pretty good. It was fitted as part of our new build which again isn't finished yet!

Having used the kitchen for nearly a year now I am generally very pleased with it. I really like the big deep draws and the smaller concealed drawers for the cutlery. I am also a big fan of the large larder unit with drawers, we fit so much food in there and it is really easy to access.

The Le Mans corner units are also great storage solutions, I have all my big pans and frying pans stashed neatly away and can get at them in an instant! All the cupboards arrived built which was a great time saver , we had a couple of issues with marked doors but they were resolved quickly by customer services. The doors have withstood a year of family life with no major marks or scuffs and I am confident they will continue to do so, the paint seems to be pretty hard-wearing and easy to clean.

I chose matt, handleless doors because I liked the streamlined look of them and thought they would be easy to keep clean. In retrospect I think I would have chosen handles or knobs, it seems every family member has to open/close the doors in a different place and the big doors especially have continual hand marks on them no matter how much I clean! At least with a knob or handle everyone is touching the same bit. That said, it is a minor gripe. Everyone who has visited has admired the kitchen and says it certainly has the wow factor. We have recommended DIY kitchens to several people since purchasing ours, for quality, choice and great value for money! Thank you."

David from Deptford "Quality of doors and units - excellent. Will definitely use again (although I am retired. I installed this kitchen in my daughter's flat.

The before pictures are tagged by date as they were taken on a phone. The after pictures were taken with a fish-eye lens (with some stitching as the kitchen is VERY small). The new kitchen is slightly larger than before as a cloakroom was incorporated.

The sink is mounted on an adapted oven housing to fit in the space and the vertical pull-out was cut down to fit the available width for a spice rack. "

Sue & Mike from Worcestershire " A few pics of the new and old kitchen, We saw your website when looking for kitchen suppliers and decided to come and see at the showroom. The showroom is extremely impressive and inspirational and the staff very helpful. We took a while to organise ourselves for the upheaval of replacing our kitchen and meanwhile recommended our daughter and family to the showroom. They bought their kitchen from you before us!

We chose a simple white Luca Matt as we wanted to have a bright room (and get away from Beige!) and felt we could update and change the accessories regularly to keep the look contemporary.

When we made our planning visit, Kyle was extremely helpful with the design and made several excellent suggestions. He also pointed out items we’d missed out!

The delivery was on time and we had been warned that two appliances were going to be delayed- these were delivered the next week.

We found the build quality was excellent and when we had a couple of queries these were answered promptly and efficiently. My husband Mike installed the units himself- it was relatively straightforward although it obviously took longer than using a professional installer – we learned on the job!

We had grooves cut under the worktop for lighting- we went for colour changeable strips- it makes us laugh.

We are extremely pleased with the finished result- light , bright and obvious quality units. "

Chris from Lancaster "We were delighted with this kitchen which we fitted into one of our rental properties, as a professional property developer I fit many kitchens and I was very impressed with the quality and value this kitchen offered.

The thickness of the panels and quality of the doors and fittings far exceeded our expectations. Having the units ready assembled saved us valuable time and ensured that all the doors fitted perfectly. Worktops were also a decent quality for an excellent price.,

In the future we intend to make DIY kitchens our default supplier."

Mrs Bozena from London "Love the kitchen, very good quality, wow factor. DIY kitchens were recommended to me by a friend."

Kate from London "Pictures of the final kitchen."

Andy from Daisy nook "Please find the enclosed pictures of a recent kitchen installation. The last one was the customers model when we first turned up to design it for him.

The new kitchen is fantastic and love the corner le mans units they give me so much more usable space (no more crawling into the back of the corner units). The pull out bins are also a fantastic buy as they are hidden and easy to empty. Overall delighted with this kitchen. We have used DIY kitchens several times now."

Carrera Sage

Su from East Grinstead "I have attached four photos plus an old one. We had a wall from the dining room to the kitchen removed which opened up the feel of the kitchen completely as well as blocking in the window and door which was in the corner. The floor space is the same but it feels so much more now. The hob, sink and fridge are in the same locations as before, but by moving the oven and getting two ovens located next to the fridge freezer enabled me to have the pan drawers under the hob.

We opted for plain units, as I do not like dust catcher ridges and my husband wanted green, we also chose a lighter interior. We only purchased the units and fridge freezer, from yourselves, we sourced the Corian work tops and other items elsewhere. We are very pleased with the quality of the units. You were recommended to us by a friend who has rental properties and has used you more than once for the refurbishments of the properties. The downside for us is that you have to know exactly what you want so we did not get it all correct first time.

As well as being a lovely kitchen we definitely saved money with you."

Luca Bespoke

Allan and Sarah from Sidcup " Being able to have a bespoke colour kitchen for such a good price was amazing. We visited the showroom and what was impressive was you answered all our questions without hesitation and did not try to sell us anything.

I fitted the kitchen myself and overall even with the usual niggly challenges that arise it was easy to install.

We had the quartz installed using a local company and had quartz splash backs up to the wall units. This was an idea we actually got from your showroom and it’s great look. The boiling hot water tap by Hyco is so useful.

Many people have remarked at how nice it is and I would recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone. The after sales support was excellent too when I had a small issue, a very refreshing change.

The black board was custom made by the chalkboard company and is actually a hidden door hiding a water softener behind it. "
