Luca Cornflower Blue

Victoria from West Sussex "Here are some pictures of my new kitchen and one of how it used to be. We sourced the worktops and appliances elsewhere but the cabinets are from DIY kitchens.

We purchased from you not only because of your extremely competitive price, but also your excellent Which? review (which was where we heard of you), and because once Iíd seen the doors in the colour and style I wanted from you, nothing else matched up.

I designed the kitchen (with the help of a high street provider *ahem*) and you helped me ensure I had all the correct items in my order.

Delivery was excellent, your delivery men were very friendly and helpful bringing all the units in. My husband and I installed the units, plinths, and cornices ourselves. It was surprisingly easy, I would never pay someone to fit a kitchen again.

I love my kitchen, probably more than is healthy. The units and doors are really good quality, they look lovely and they are so roomy. I have more cupboard space than I know what to do with. I couldnít recommend DIY Kitchens highly enough. "

Altino Petrol Blue

Steve from Essex "I ordered and fitted a kitchen from you earlier this summer, Altino Petrol Blue fronts and grey carcasses. I assembled these units into an enlarged kitchen and utility area following building of an extension to my kitchen and dining room. The extension semi-integrated the two rooms with a half wall replacing full wall in the original kitchen area and a combined area with vaulted ceiling in the extension. This gave opportunity to create several distinct sections including areas for cooking, washing up, drink making, breakfasts and food preparation, plus utility.

I have built several kitchens previously but this was the first from DIY Kitchens, having been introduced through a 'Which' report. I was generally very impressed with the wide range of cabinet sizes and options as well as initial ordering system, customer service and overall unit quality.

I used all three depths of floor cabinets and two heights of wall unit as well a s wide variety of other options. General construction is strong, hardware including cabinet feet, hinges and wall unit hangers are excellent quality and easier than many to fit and adjust. The instruction manual is minimal, but excellent -- concise and all that is needed without extraneous content. I needed to customise several units and this also proved quite straightforward. I am very pleased with the final installation which has drawn many admiring comments. "

Sarah from Yorkshire "Finshed kitchen (Luca Matt Bespoke Painted)"

Barney from London "Some pics of our kitchen very happy with the product and service!"

Altino Petrol Blue

Ian and Jane from Oxford "Here are three pictures of our newly installed DIY- Kitchens kitchen. Just loving the Altino Petrol Blue Colour combined with the Lambrate worktop.

We were recommended to look at DIY-Kitchens by close friends of ours.

The quality of the units and the finish impressed both ourselves and our kitchen fitter (and he has put in kitchens from many different suppliers). The customer service from DIY Kitchens was exceptional and we are delighted with the end product (as is George the cat)."

Altino Petrol Blue

Jessica from West Oxfordshire "Please find attached some photos of our new kitchen (installed ourselves) along with the old 1980s kitchen.

One "old kitchen" photo is taken from the original sales brochure when we bought the house, and the other when we knocked the wall down in-between the kitchen and dinning room.

We have been very impressed with our kitchen from DIY kitchens, which we came across online whilst searching for kitchen suppliers. There were so many positive reviews we felt it was the right option for us. The whole process from designing to ordering to installation was straight forward.

The units are of excellent quality, the colour (altino petrol blue) is vibrant and bright, and the installation of the quartz worktop was done professionally and looks just amazing. Our dreary 1980s kitchen has been totally transformed!

I have already recommended DIY Kitchens to several other people.

Our spaniels (Maisy and Barney) are also loving the new kitchen, although they don't actually get to eat their breakfast at the breakfast bar!"

Carrera Bespoke

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. "

Altino Petrol Blue

Paul & Allison from Devon "Hi Diy kitchens, this magnificent kitchen has now been fitted for a year. Paul and Allison down in sunny Devon (and Puddycat the cat) "

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 itís 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. "

Lesley Medley from Bewdley "Just wanted you to see my wonderful kitchen. I am so pleased with the overall finish and itís a brilliant transformation."

Tom from Hampshire "Just thought Iíd send over a few images of our finished kitchen. "

Carrera Bespoke

Peter from London "I was left in no doubt it was solid wood after getting it up three flights of stairs, but you can really tell the difference. Everything is excellent quality, super smooth and feels built to last. My friend got one and we shamelessly copied them."

Luca Cornflower Blue

Jonathan from Yorkshire "Completed kitchen installation"

Luca Cornflower Blue

Nick & Pat from Hampshire "We love this kitchen and were particularly impressed with the range of options available in terms of cabinet types and sizes as well as the mix and match features (wine racks etc) allowing us to design a kitchen which uses every spare centimeter of space.

The high quality units are delivered made up so relatively quick & easy to fit and the worktop templating and fitting service was very straight forward.

We would definitely recommend taking the time to visit the showroom as we found lots of little ideas we hadnít thought about and the knowledgeable staff on hand were very helpful.

The DIY ordering system on the web site is especially easy to use and the service online and on the phone was brilliant. "

Carrera Carbon

Aga from Penarth "So pleased with my Carrera Bespoke kitchen! We were beyond impressed with everything from packaging to quality of carcasses, finish, hinges and overall neatness of the product.

The pre assembled units as standard were a total winner, we have never done it before yet we were able to install everything ourselves in just a few days. Style/finish wise I ordered tonnes of samples before making my decision (unfortunately we live too far away to visit the showroom!) and Iíd recommend the same to all future kitchen owners, it was an eye opener that helped my initial vision of the kitchen crystallise.

Iíve decided to create a minimalistic, modern, floor to ceiling kitchen so I went for bespoke painted, matt finish in 3 different colours, it was a risky move but it worked a treat! ĎGo bold or go homeí they say! ;)

Service wise DIY kitchens' staff were great, very professional, swift at communication, minor problems were easily resolved. Iíve been singing their praises to everyone already which Iím sure is going to generate them more business. And if I ever take on another project Iíll absolutely be coming back for another quality kitchen.

Colours used were Carbon, Light Grey & RAL5009 Azurblau (The blue island)"

Susan from Stafforshire "We finally finished our beautiful new kitchen in November. It's the first time we've fitted our own kitchen and we are really pleased with the results. It certainly gives our home the "Wow!" that we were looking for. Thank you for all your support in getting us to this point. Wishing you a very Happy Christmas"

Luca Bespoke

Lauren & Chris from York "We are incredibly please with our kitchen. We knew whatís we wanted but having received quotes elsewhere, it was outside of our budget and then we found you! A great selection of kitchens in your showroom and ability to choose any colour we wanted. So easy to install as well, even in our old house where nothing is level!,The kitchen itself is really great quality ... very solid. We have the luxury kitchen we wanted but at a fraction of the price of elsewhere! "

Luca Bespoke

Sally from Surrey "Pics of my Luca matt bespoke painted kitchen"

Altino Petrol Blue

Ashley from Lichfield "The kitchen is top class. The ordering process was straightforward in many ways and when we had a problem help was available.

We made two visits to the showroom and the displays and advice were really helpful, especially where we were trying to build on top of a corner unit to complete the run of five full height units.

The versatility of the range enabled us to make the best fit for the space available with different width units and the option of having the units dry built was a great help. Unfortunately one of the appliance doors was scratched but quickly replaced.

The quality of the units, doors, hinges and runners is excellent and far better than some other suppliers. I am a 61 year old DIY person with average DIY skills but lots of patience and time. I also have a very supportive wife.

The units and fillers cut well using a basic plunge saw with fine tooth blade, the levelling process was easy and the units fitted together well. We used specialist tradesmen for electrics, plastering.

The worktops are Grigio Star Quartz sourced locally. New electrical appliances including induction hob which is amazing, sourced locally.

Overall very pleased with the result and would not hesitate to recommend DIY Kitchens, which I came across whilst searching the internet. Savings for the whole project against Magnet price at least 50%. Wickes was poor quality & Benchmarx wouldnít talk to us because we werenít trade! Time for a holiday or two."
