Carrera Carbon

Craig & Lisa from Cheshire " We are really happy with our new kitchen! We love it! The quality of the ready made units and the finish of the doors is fantastic and overall it's given us the look of the open plan kitchen/diner/lounge we were after (we had a wall knocked down for this!) We certainly felt like we made a decent saving by using an online kitchen company opposed to a high street giant.

We were told about DIY kitchens by two seperate sets of friends, both had their kitchens from you, they thoroughly recommended them, so we thought we would give it a try and we are so glad we did!

The grid you sent with the pack helped us to work out what we could comfortably fit into our space and this was definitely the bit we were most daunted by! But our builder helped check and double check our choices so that really helped.

We've had loads of nice comments from family and friends and it's completely transformed the way our whole family live (That's Hugo in the pic 2.5 yrs) So a happy family :)"

Silsden Carbon

Mark & Annie from Lincolnshire "I have attached photos of our finished kitchen, one includes our 2 year old Labrador, Bo ( I managed to get him to sit still just long enough ! ) and also 1 photo at the beginning of doing the room, taken a week or so after having the roof replaced.

I have had your website in my ‘favourites’ for 5 or 6 years – I think I found it on a google search when I was looking around the web and I kept it because of the choice you offer in styles/colours – don’t think I have ever come across anyone that offers so much !

Once we had decided on the lay-out and the choice of doors and finish (Silsdon Carbon) we had you send us a sample door, then followed that up with a trip to your showroom so that I could check out the kitchens in the flesh as it were.... We were really impressed on our visit both by the kitchens on show , and your very friendly and helpful people. We arrived home in the early afternoon and I ordered our kitchen online that evening.

What really sold us on this particular kitchen was the over mantle, it really sets off a range cooker and we think it looks brilliant.

As to the units, they arrived well packaged and in perfect condition, and with them being fully built complete with magic corners and pull outs installed it was the easiest kitchen I have ever fitted (this being the 4th so far) I managed to fit all the units except the sink and over mantle in two afternoons ! The sink unit was done the following Sunday (you delivered on a Wednesday) but I had to wait until my friend was available to lift the over mantle into place.

A T&G panel had been missed on the delivery, but was sorted out quickly and easily by yourselves and did’nt impact on the installation at all.

Overall we are chuffed to bits with the finished kitchen, and we are so pleased that we bought our units from you. Loved the tea and choccy biscuits included, that’s a nice touch that you would’nt get anywhere else, and from a practical point of view it was well built, very nicely finished, and very easy to install. Also found your staff a pleasure to deal with both face to face and via email – they are a credit to you."

Malton Carbon

David from Scarborough "Having spent some considerable time planning our new kitchen gaining designs style and prices for the more popular well know suppliers we where more than delighted when we found DIY Kitchens after being recommended by a friend.

The whole set up at their showroom was most impressive compared to what we had previously experienced. From the reception staff to planning consultants, the whole process felt uncomplicated, relaxed, modern and yet very professional. The showroom itself is well designed on 2 levels, with places throughout to take some time out and consider the options without any sales hassle.

The choice of units & work surfaces was exceptional but we fell on the style of kitchen almost immediately (Malton in Carbon). We had a clear idea of what we wanted but where offered some great advice by the consultants on site that would make most of the space we had. DIY Kitchens where the 1st of 6 companies we contacted / visited who got the design and quote correct and as an added bonus where the most competitively priced. There is absolutely no sales pressure whatsoever, which adds to the relaxed feel of the place.

Ordering was straight forward on-line and a delivery date was agreed communications by e-mail was perfect and the delivery was made on the due date. Always a relief when you have trades people booked.

Our kitchen fitter was most impressed with the quality of the product and admitted that it was unusual not have any issues during installation, nothing missing, no damage and all perfectly delivered.

The transformation is quite remarkable, it’s changed from a functional kitchen to a modern open spaced living area – it’s not only added value to our property buts it made our time at home more sociable

DIY Kitchens comes highly recommended and I would advise anyone looking to renew or upgrade to visit the showroom. The whole experience was nothing less than 5 star / 100% "

Luca Carbon

Lisa from Bristol "We love our kitchen, the colour is amazing and the quality of the doors are really good. The customer service has been fantastic and would highly recommend DIY Kitchens. We heard about DIY Kitchens from our kitchen fitter when we were planning our kitchen. The whole process was very smooth, easy to plan and saved us a significant amount of money compared to others. "

Luca Carbon

Brent & Tina from Tamworth "We were very impressed with the value for money of diy kitchens units and doors taking into account the quality of them which is better than the majority of the competition.

We found the units to be very sturdy with good quality fittings for doors, drawers and drawer runners. Having carried out our kitchen refurbishment entirely by ourselves we found the amount of different adjustments available for door, drawer and unit alignment was excellent.

As can be seen from the before and after photos, we were after a very specific look for our new kitchen and the amount of colours and styles available meant that we got exactly what we wanted. Overall very very pleased with our new kitchen."

Lewis From Nuneaton "Nice quality units pre built which saves a lot of time and hassle assembling. Definitely seemed to be good value for money compared to wickes and b&q. Heard about you from friends and forum recommendations."

Ben & Ruth from Leicester "The kitchen is done and we love it!! Glass provided by belgrave glass leicester, fitted by L&t glazing. Photo bomber is Cilla the labradoodle! "

Stanbury Carbon

Yvonne from Elsenham "We have built a new house and I had been arranging quotes for a complete kitchen with all new appliances. It was a friend who told me about you and I followed you on Instagram and decided to give you a chance at quoting. I was amazed at the saving compared to other companies and I found the whole process very easy. The staff are very helpful and made me feel confident about buying from you.

When it arrived I was so pleased with the quality. Everything we ordered fitted too.

Here are some pics of the finished kitchen. We chose the Stanbury in Grey & Carbon. Everyone compliments us when they see it so thank you very much!"

Luca Carbon

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."

Luca Carbon

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

Luca Carbon

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."

Linwood Carbon

Chris & Hannah from Kenilworth "Here are photos of my Linwood Carbon kitchen with quartz worktop and antique brass handles.

Kitchen quality is great, units being delivered complete means assembly is quick and easy. Where there were issues your customer service team were very helpful. "

Luca Carbon

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. "

Norton Carbon

James from Lancashire "Found DIY on the internet. Top quality and value. Old kitchen removed. New doorway put in, one wall taken out another blocked up opening kitchen and dining room up. Everything else done by myself. Thank you "

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."
