Norton Dove Grey

Jo from Bucks "Love the kitchen looks much more expensive than it was. Particular favourites are the recycling/bin storage and the bench seat which we made out of top box units (upside down -suggested by your super helpful staff) and added oak legs from eBay."

Linwood Grey

Sarah from Somerset "I heard about diy kitchens when looking online. I was having an extension built & needed to find a good quality, reasonably priced kitchen.

The results are just what I was hoping for, we now have a family friendly kitchen-diner with plenty of space to entertain.

We were very impressed with the company that you teamed up with to provide the stunning quartz worktop that we chose, it gives a feel of absolute quality.

Here’s a shot of the new room being built, followed by 3 pictures of the finished product."

Linwood Heron Grey

Sharon from Bury St Edmunds "We purchased Linwood in Heron Grey for our kitchen and utility room. Thank you for all your help, support and advice while we were planning our renovations. First class service."

Linwood Dove Grey

Debbie from Pontefract "My kitchen is stunning, really well made and the choice of colours is fantastic. I modelled my island exactly to what we saw in the showroom, as loved it!

The service I received from DIY kitchens was second to none, the staff who work there go over and above and I found this to be the case from beginning to end. My kitchen fitter also commented on the quality, stating is was really good!

I live in the same village where the showroom is, so had already heard a lot about it... All good and all true. "

Linwood Carbon

Rachel from York "Very good quality. We visited the showroom and the comparison v other kitchen retailers was very good. Love the colour, love the choice. Got exactly what we wanted. So happy.

How did you hear about DIY Kitchens? My father in law fitted a DIY kitchen about 3 years ago, he was impressed but the quality and it still looks fantastic now.

We ordered 6 sample doors, only ordered Carbon as a bit of a wild card as we knew we could get a full refund on the samples. Fell in love with it. Thanks!"

Linwood Dove Grey

Anand from Essex "Excellent quality and better then finest brand in high street."

Norton Cobham Blue

Andrea from London "Our new kitchen is a delight as you can see, everything was as perfect as we hoped, we had seen a kitchen of this style in a magazine and when we were recommended DIY by a friend we realised we could afford our dream kitchen.

The doors close softly, the cupboards and drawers are outstanding and the service was brilliant. Yogi the dog likes it too!"

Linwood Carbon

Kelly from Tyne and Wear "Completed kitchen pictures"

Norton Bespoke

Luke from Berkhamsted "Here are some shots of our kitchen and rather serious looking dog, Rollo!

We are over the moon with our kitchen, the quality of the units is superb and the solid wooden doors and drawer boxes really set it above other retailers. All at an unbeatable price! The overall experience with DIY kitchens was excellent, I cant recommend them highly enough."

Linwood Cornflower Blue

Max from Colchester "We found DIY Kitchens quite by chance on the internet whilst browsing for a new kitchen.

Impressed with the range of units and sizes available we were able to design a kitchen to fit around some awkward structural features.

As we weren't quite sure which style to go for we decided to visit the showroom to narrow down our choices We were delighted with the quality of the kitchens and the value for money compared to other kitchens we had looked at - these units are built to last!

We also ordered a spare door and extra worktop to create a pantry with matching door from an existing cupboard and to add a breakfast bar.

The order checker piked up on these non-standard items and called to confirm the order was correct. The kitchen was delivered on time and in perfect order. With the ready assembled units it took no time at all to fit.

We are delighted with the finished kitchen, it looks much more expensive than it was and have no doubt it will serve us well for many years.

The blue wouldn't have been our instinctive choice but we really liked it in the showroom and are pleased with the decision as the depth of colour changes in different lights.

Over all we are really pleased and would have no qualms with recommending DIY Kitchens to others"

Linwood White

Karen from Wakefield "Fantastic quality solid wood units. Excellent value and so easy to fit as all made up. Recommended by a friend and recommended to lots of people since."

Linwood Dakar

Toby from Bucks "Finished kitchen photos"

Linwood Carbon

Michael from Merseyside "Photos of the completed kitchen"

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!"

Linwood Grey

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."
