Malton Dove Grey

Kim from Sussex "After looking at lots of kitchens I was frustrated that companies would not share all the specifications of their units so that I could play with all of the options on fitting units into my small space. I came across DIY Kitchens when looking at Which.co.uk and decided to give the online kitchen planner a try. It was a eureka moment and allowed me to fit the tall unit I wanted along with a small unit and still fit a cooker in...something that the other kitchen suppliers didn't offer. I also found that it came out at the best price!

I don't live close to the showroom so ordered a door sample and could see that the quality was good and it didn't disappoint. The worktop was also ordered through the website. It was so great to be able to spend time trying different options without having a set time with a kitchen planner.

The kitchen has really made such a difference to the room and I would certainly recommend DIY kitchens to anyone!"

Linwood White

Dave from Bedworth "My wife and I first heard about DIY kitchens while we were searching for kitchen ideas online, and found the website a gold mine of good ideas and information.

After pricing up other kitchens within our budget. We found that we could get a much higher spec kitchen, including solid wood worktops, and painted solid wood doors. For a much better price than the other quotes we received.

We also liked the greater choice of colours and cabinet finishes than other stores had. So after a lot of consideration we decided to buy a Linwood kitchen in white.we liked the contrast between the Natural Lancaster Oak units interior, and Linwood white painted doors.

The Quality of the fully assembled units is exceptional, and is the first time we haven't had the pain of build flat pack kitchen units. And the finish of the doors, panels, and trims, feel very solid and sturdy... like they would last a lifetime!"

Sandra & Mike from Dorset "We are delighted with the kitchen and have already recommended DIY kitchens to our neighbours. Hope you like the photos."

Linwood Dove Grey

Margaret from Didcot "This is a high quality kitchen. The cupboards are firm and solid. The doors are well made, have an excellent finish and fit beautifully. The choice of cupboard options made fitting the U shaped kitchen straightforward. All went together easily. The kitchen looks amazing. "

Linwood Dove Grey

Karley from Lincolnshire "This time last year we were planning and ordering our kitchen now finally getting round to sharing.

We chose the Linwood in Dove Grey and Carbon on the island with Quartz worktops and a butler sink! We are thrilled with the finished look. There are some before and after shots too."

Linwood Vanilla

Richard & Mary from Norfolk "We are thrilled with our new kitchen and are very pleased with the quality of the units supplied. We had a number of occasions to contact DIY-Kitchens, and we always found the staff very welcoming and friendly, as well as giving us useful advice and help. Many thanks to all who helped us, from design, through delivery, to telephone and online help.

The original flat-pack oak kitchen was put in completely by myself in 1994/5 (apart from the boiler). But the time had come when it was looking a bit tired, dated and dark. We researched many suppliers and makers of kitchens for nearly six months, before deciding to try DIY-Kitchens on the recommendation of our son who is an experienced builder, and after reading reviews by the "Which" consumer magazine.

I spent several weeks using the kitchen planning online site for DIY-Kitchens, trying different combinations and colours, before arriving at our ideal kitchen design. Rather than just ordering, we stayed near Pontefract for a week and visited DIY-Kitchens to view their showrooms and toured the factory. We then finally decided to sit down with a kitchen planning consultant and finalise the design specifications.

After a week or so, we put in our order, but we were slightly disappointed to learn of a nine-week delivery date because of the paint shop upgrade. It seemed that DIY-Kitchens was getting too popular and had to increase capacity! In the meanwhile, our old kitchen (two open-plan rooms over a split-level) was removed. The ceilings were lowered, the floors given a screed and all the walls were re-plastered. The plumbing and electrics were 90% overhauled, and coving added, everything was painted, and new flooring laid. Both window sills were tiled using oiled and polished terracotta tiles, and new electrical sockets installed.

A few delayed items from DIY-Kitchens finally arrived and the new units were installed over the next few weeks. Prime oak worktops from a different supplier were cut and profiled to fit and given three coats of Danish oil, top and bottom, then three coats of food-grade Osmo Oil to finish. Kitchen sinks were then fitted and the boiler housing was radically cut to size and fitted. Pelmet was used for both underneath and above all wall units, the quadrant pelmet made by myself to fit the rounded corner units. Filler panels and plinth were finally fitted.

All the tiling, grouting and sealants carried out over a couple of weeks. Some in-cabinet and under-cabinet LED lighting was fitted to the glazed display units the first week in January 2020. In all, the whole project from concept to the completed kitchen took about fifteen months, although the installation took about five months. A very long process, but very satisfying to see the final result."

Malton Cashmere

Clare & John from Hove "We first hear about DIY kitchens through Which Magazine which recommended them very highly. We had already looked at various national suppliers and were put off by the lack of choice. We made the journey north to visit the DIY showrooms and were immediately excited by the wide range of styles and colours on offer, We were particularly impressed by the quality of the build, for such a reasonable price.

We opted for a Malton shaker style which suits the age of our house but with a cashmere finish which gives it a lovely modern and airy feel. With the units being such a reasonable price we were able to afford quartz work surfaces which really gives the space the wow factor.

We have been using our kitchen for a few months now and love the wide pan drawers, the timeless shaker style and the gorgeous quartz worktops. We also opted for hidden drawers with oak inserts which are invaluable for storage and add real style.

We have had so many amazing comments from family and friends about how stylish our new space looks. We are so thrilled that we are now in the process of ordering more unity to refurbish our utility room. "

Linwood Carbon

Ian from Leicestershire "Just thought I send some images of our completed kitchen. Before, work in progress and finished kitchen."

Norton Grey

Emily & Matt from Leeds "I have attached photos of our finished kitchen that we purchased from DIY Kitchens – we are so pleased with it and the quality of it! We have now also referred DIY Kitchens on to a number of our friends and family.

There are also some before and during photos, as we turned the old small dining room into our open plan kitchen helped by a big extension."

Helmsley Bespoke

Diana from Fifield "Here are some images showing our kitchen, fitted finally and finished off, but splashback."

Norton Bespoke

Lucy from York "We are pretty chuffed with our new kitchen so I thought I’d send some pictures in. We chose the Norton Bespoke range as we wanted a wood finish but in a colour of our choice. Our joiner recommended you and we have subsequently discovered that lots of our friends have used you too.

We are so pleased with the look with achieved, ‘modern country’ was the style we were going for. We live in a 160 year old Victorian house and felt we needed to remain true to the house and it’s atmosphere but we really needed a functional, modern kitchen to keep up with our busy family of 6 life.

I love my bin cupboard, fitted cutlery drawers, pan drawers and the wall cupboards that we fitted up to the ceiling. Our pull out larder and drawers are brilliant too. I’m a keen baker and created a whole section for baking with wall cupboards and pan drawers big enough for all my equipment.

We had a very positive experience buying with you and the fact that the cupboards arrive assembled is a big bonus. So thank you and we will enjoy our new kitchen for many years to come. "

Silsden White

David from Kent "Completed kitchen."
