Zara from Bury St Edmunds 'We had undertaken an extension and renovation project and had a tight budget for our kitchen. As my birthday was in May, it was my request to travel to the DIY showroom as my birthday treat! I had taken a look at the online website and planner and was very impressed with what I had seen online. Thankfully my husband agreed and we made the 4 hour journey to the show room which was absolutely worth it. We were blown away by the price, selection of finishes, colour choice and the quality. We ordered shortly after our visit and we were kept informed regarding expected delivery.
The quality of the kitchen is top class. Our independent kitchen fitters passed comment on how well made the doors and units were. We are delighted with our Norton kitchen (Dakar). I now have more space than I could ever need with regards to both worktop and storage.
I would not hesitate to recommend DIY kitchens. They simply cannot be beaten when it comes to quality, affordability and ease of ordering. '
Samantha from Sheffield 'Here are some before and after pictures of our house extension and kitchen.'
Darren from Rotherham 'It was us who appeared on Dream Kitchen and Bathrooms with Mark Millar. Series 2, episode 1.
The overall impression was good, heavy kitchen units. Well made mechanisms such as closers, hinges and storage solutions. In love with our larder unit and gin cupboard! You were recommended by the fitter, who is a friend. Found no reason to go anywhere else. Great web support.'
Steve from Hempstead 'The kitchen looks great and easy to fit as already prebuilt, soft close is great.'
Nathan from Suffolk 'We knew about you from a Google search and your good reviews. Great service and a kitchen I am very happy with. Will definitely use again.'
Shelly from Hertfordshire 'Here are some photos of our kitchen once it was installed, we went for the Norton bespoke painted we absolutely LOVE it and are so so happy, we’ve recommended you to many of our friends who we know are looking at new kitchens.
I’ve included a before shot too. Our carpenter used the remaining end panels to make a bespoke unit on top of the fridge and blocked in above the units. '
Sally form Bognor Regis '
I had had visits from two of your high street competitors and for one reason or another I didn’t feel happy with their advice. I was adamant that I wanted a corner hob as it was really the best placement and I was continually being told that this wasn’t possible, so I took to the internet and did copious amounts or research ( I’m afraid to say I’m a bit of a research nerd).
It was at this point I discovered DIY Kitchens. I contacted you and I started a lovely email relationship with a person called, if my memory serves me well, Louise, I explained my problem and straight away she advised me of different ways I could approach the situation. For me one of the best parts was having continuity, being able to correspond with the same person every time gave me a great deal of confidence that I was being looked after and I had chosen the best company to provide my kitchen.
When I told my kitchen fitter that I was having DIY Kitchens he was very pleased and reassured me that I would not be disappointed.
Well to cut a very long story short it turned out I wasn’t disappointed, far from it, the quality is excellent, all the units fitted perfectly and the finish is beyond my expectation. Having a rather unusual shaped kitchen meant that I needed a diagonal corner unit and also angled end units. The work tops had to be cut to match the end units and this was done perfectly.
My kitchen has since been admired by many people and I’m always happy to say who provided it... '
Heather from West Sussex 'We chose Linwood Cobham Blue with Natural Lancaster Oak cabinets for our bar area, and are really enjoying using it. We are very impressed with the quality of the cabinets and doors, and love how the antique copper bar handles tone in with the Iroko worktop.'
Rebecca from York 'I am absolutely thrilled with my Stanbury Dove Grey kitchen from DIY kitchens. After looking for sometime at other kitchen companies I felt DIY offered the quality, style and functionality I was looking for in a kitchen. Sturdy and stylish the quality of the units was what stood out for me the most and I would not hesitate to choose DIY kitchen products again. The process of designing the kitchen was easy, with fantastic online customer support, to the smooth stress free delivery service I enjoyed every step of the way. Thank you DIY kitchens, I now have the kitchen of my dreams!'
Elizabeth from Yarm 'Overall the quality of the kitchen is excellent, the service and help was also excellent, which I knew from hearing about DIY kitchens from my sister. '
David from Leeds 'We have been satisfied with the quality and the price of the kitchen units we ordered last year and with their use over the past six months. We are particularly impressed with the pull-out larder unit and the swing out base corner unit in both finish and practicality.
We heard about DIY Kitchens from my niece, who ad already ordered a kitchen from you. We made about six trips to the show room and received a lot of helpful advice from friendly staff.'
Gary & Tracey from Chatburn 'DIY kitchens were recommended to us by a friend. We couldn't be more delighted with our Norton Dove Grey kitchen. I have always fitted my own kitchens and used different well known suppliers, this is the best quality kitchen l have fitted. Excellent quality, well built and backed up with great customer service. Would highly recommend. '
Darren & Danielle from Staffordshire 'The kitchen quality is absolutely superb, the units are solid, well made, sturdy legs and everything coming ready built was a massive help. I was particularly impressed with the swing out larder and pull out bin units.
The best thing however was the customer service (especially an assistant named Dan) helping me out with what I needed to build a bespoke set of secret doors into our utility room and also our corner larder pull out coffee station!
The doors are fantastic quality and we were really happy with how the bespoke colour turned out on the island.
We heard about DIY kitchens purely through Instagram (building ribbons) after a competitor quoted us a silly price. Everyone on Instagram who used DIY had nothing but great things to say and the price was such good value and allowed us to stick within our renovation budget.'
Anna from Warrington 'We ordered a Stanbury Cashmere kitchen aand couldn't be more happy with the kitchen. The delivery went extremely smoothly and on time and the delivery team were fantastic, very polite, fast and friendly.
We didn't have any problem with the installation - all the units were in perfect condition and the packaging was great. The worktop was installed in 7 days. I've been using my kitchen now for several months and I'm very happy with it. The quality is amazing and it looks expensive.
I have lots of compliments for the kitchen and my friends can't believe the price. My favourite part is my integrated cupboards - it was easy to compose beautiful fitted wall of cabinets like it belonged to the house from the very beginning. They are spacious and overall really useful.
All in all, 10 out of 10 and I can't recommend DIY Kitchens highly enough. '
Irene from Hampshire 'I changed a room that was a storage utility room that was originally a garage into my superb kitchen in Malton Dove Grey.
I used to work in interior design and have designed and help order 3 previous kitchens for friends and family. It took me 9 months to finalise the design on my own.
I used DIY Kitchens because I used to live in West Yorkshire and love the quality and superb selection if units. All kitchen fitters love fitting your kitchens!'
Alice & Pete from Bedfordshire 'We were really impressed with the quality of the kitchen we received. The units and worktop are sturdy and very reasonably priced compared to other competitors.
The units come pre-assembled, so we were able to install the kitchen ourselves, even as DIY novices (without getting divorced!).
Overall we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new kitchen!'
Christine from Cambridge 'Everything I wanted in a kitchen, the colour and quality of the units are beautiful. I live in an old house and need a style that fitted in with the age of the house, but still looked stylish. I had a budget to work with to refit the whole kitchen, which I was able to keep to and still have good quality units.
I had many virtual kitchen designs from different companies, DIY kitchens offered the best price for the quality of their kitchens. I booked a show room visit which helped a lot in deciding which styles I liked, I then ordered a few samples to make my final decision on style and colour, everyone was helpful and polite (even when I made a mistake).
I enjoy spending time in my new kitchen, it's my chill out place in the house. '
Natasha from Sutton Coldfield 'This is the second kitchen I have purchased from DIY kitchens and would do so again. After initially finding the company online around 2012, I checked out the quality by visiting the factory. High quality doors and units at a fraction of the price; this time I used the online design planner and had my design checked before going ahead. I made a couple of mistakes on the first kitchen but these were resolved within a couple of days. This time a couple of items were lightly damaged but no quibbles about exchanging. Thank you for another beautiful kitchen.'
Rebecca from Halifax 'I absolutely love my shaker styler kitchen from you. It complements my parquet floor perfectly. The worktops, units and doors are of such high quality - so easy to clean and hardwearing, especially with a 2 year old who likes to wipe paint and food all over them! I love the space-saving cupboard space and the integrated design of the doors resulting in a sleek look. '
Sue & Steve from Lancashire 'We renovated our bungalow last year and the kitchen was fitted in September. Quality is amazing, we love the colours. Visited the showroom first which was huge but used online planner. Very easy to use and the help and advice given from Briony was terrific. Customer service and delivery perfect. Wouldn’t go anywhere else. '
Ian from Leeds 'Absolutely superb quality. The 22mm doors make all the difference compared to other suppliers like Howdens. This is our dream kitchen for our forever home so we went for the Linwood bespoke painted range as my wife wanted a very particular green. We are really pleased with the outcome - not had one issue since installed and only hear wonderful comments from visitors.'
Olivia from West Yorkshire 'Here are our kitchen and utility photos We are very happy with the quality of the kitchen. We heard about you through a friend who had also bought a kitchen from you and was also very impressed with the quality and value for money of the kitchen.'
Christine from Notts 'Our kitchen was installed into our new kitchen/diner last year. It's only small but we love it.
We heard about DIY kitchens from our daughter who bought one in 2020. The showroom is the best we'd ever been to.....tidy, organised, clear and comprehensive.
We're delighted with the quality of our kitchen. I especially like the large drawers which make access to items do easy. The after sales service was excellent. Staff were very helpful even though I'd made a couple of errors when ordering. All in all a great choice.'
Jay from Liverpool 'I went for Linwood and love the quality and grain effect. The units are rock solid, which made fitting the kitchen a doddle (I'm an amateur DIYer and did it myself).The price we saved by ordering through DIY-Kitchens enabled us to buy quartz worktops and a range cooker.
The huge range of sizes for units and doors was also a big factor - we've made maximum use of our space, fully tailored to our needs.'
David Heather from Inverness 'We absolutely love our new kitchen. The ordering was straightforward and it was comforting to know that our order was checked as we had forgotten to add a couple of bits. The delivery was quick and the men very friendly. Thank you so much.'
Sarah and Darren from Warwick 'We chose the Norton range, with units in carbon and dove grey. We also chose the white sparkle quartz work surface which is so elegant.
We’d been recommended to DIY kitchens by a friend and we were hugely impressed, from our initial visit to your showroom, through the design and ordering process and to delivery and after care. The installation was so simple and the quality of the units is just outstanding. We have received so many compliments about our beautiful kitchen and been told by many friends they have kitchen envy so we make sure we recommend DIY kitchens to them all!!
The kitchen has transformed our home. Previously it was a narrow galley style kitchen so we knocked through the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to create an open space then installed glass doors that open fully to create a stunning dining kitchen, great for entertaining. '
Mrs Harris from Buckinghamshire 'Our builder recommended DIY Kitchens because of the superior build quality saying it was better than most on the market. We were particularly thrilled with the good value of the worktop. '
Lou from Harpenden 'We had been on the lookout for a kitchen for a couple of years and constantly inspired by what we saw ans they were nearly always DIY Kitchens, so when it came to investigating further, they were our first go to company.
From the start, we were very impressed with their website, ease of using and information that could be gleaned to give us a good indication of costs. When we decided to progress further, customer services were very knowledgeable and helpful. We didn’t use the online planning services as we had already got on board a kitchen designer as we were changing plumbing, electrics etc around a lot.
We ordered several samples (refundable upon ordering) and were immediately impressed with the quality (and colour.) Based on all of the above we decided to place the order.
We couldn’t be happier. The quality of the cupboards are fantastic, we love the two colours together. With so many different cupboards available we have exactly the kitchen we had dreamed if, a bespoke kitchen for a fraction of the cost. We are six months in since finishing it and we are thrilled with how it works, looks and stands up to family life. Couldn’t recommend DIY more. '
Dave from Tyne & Wear 'I heard about DIY Kitchens on an online forum. Being quite particular about what we wanted from the kitchen and needing to maximise space, while keeping to a tight budget, the range of units available and the ability to pick exactly what we needed for ourselves worked really well.
A lot of time went into the design, but it was well worth it in the end, and we're really happy with the finished kitchen (though there are still a few little jobs that need finishing!). The quality of the units and fittings is excellent. '
Sasha from Keyingham 'I had seen DIY kitchens on a YouTube video by a guy called Nick Morris who used yourselves for property developing and he states that the quality and price of you’re kitchens is far superior to other companies. I myself have to agree, the price we paid and the quality we received is far superior to what we looked at in other well known companies in the area.
The door quality’s is 22mm thick mdf which is a lot thicker and sturdier then everywhere else we had looked at, and it’s all quality including the units and the hinges. My boyfriend Rees is a joiner and we fitted the kitchen together which was actually very easy! Rees is quiet picky with the quality of the products we used in the house, but he loves the kitchen and it met his very high standards! (Even the hinges).
Even down to visiting the showroom was a dream, all the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful and there were plenty of refreshments on hand!
We also purchased a solid oak butchers block worktop from yourselves which we believe takes the kitchen to another level, it makes you feel as though you’re in a posh cottage in the country side! All of our friends and family are jealous of the kitchen and they say the wood worktops even make it smell good! I have since recommended yourselves to anyone that has spoke to me about a kitchen. '
Jude from Manchester 'We were just about to order a replacement for our kitchen when Covid struck and the first lockdown started. We had to rethink our plans, and searching online brought me to the DIY Kitchens website.
I used the online planning tool to choose the best layout for our kitchen - a very narrow galley. We were able to make the most of our space with a mixture of under-counter units, wall units and a huge larder cupboard.
The kitchen fitters hadn't fitted a kitchen from DIY Kitchens before but they were very impressed with the quality of the units and it didn't take them long to transform the room. I've sent a few photos of before and after.
We found there are lots of photos of larger kitchens out there, but not as much to show what can be done in a smaller galley space. I hope this is helpful!'
Sarah from Formby 'We had taken on a huge refurbishment of a small dated 50s bungalow, turning it into a beautiful modern family home. Whilst every aspect of the build was financially tight looking for a kitchen within our ever-decreasing budget was proving difficult, that was until we found DIY kitchens online.
I didn’t go to view the showroom only relied on the excellent reviews from previous customers. From start to finish DIY kitchens were amazing.
Part of our kitchen was a solid oak door, ordered in an unprimed unsanded finish, our joiner was very dubious, saying for the price quoted the doors would not be solid oak, so we sent for a sample. Knowing we had to alter one the doors to fit a difficult space we decided to reduce to size of the sample door to see if it was solid oak and yes it was !!!
The planning & ordering process for the kitchen was made very easy with the help of the online planner, excellent customer service staff with a full knowledge of all products. I would highly recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone who wants to have a quality kitchen, supplied and delivered on time, full customer support and above all to save money compared to any high street kitchen company.
Thank you DIY Kitchens we will be ordering from you again for the walk-in pantry and utility. '
Polly from Bristol 'We have been renovating our beautiful Victoria family home for the last 18 months! We have been documenting our journey on our Instagram page.
We were so pleased with every aspect of working with DIY kitchens from the support the to helping order, to the delivery and beautiful quality of our kitchen. We chose a bespoke colour and it is just perfect. We miss ordered a couple of things and the support team sent them out so quickly, meaning it didn’t delay our install.
I have recommended diy kitchens to literally anyone who will listen. We get so many amazing comments and compliments about our kitchen and it really is perfect. We heard about diy kitchens from a friend that used you guys and got a beautiful kitchen too!
We are so pleased with our kitchen and how it turned out. It will be amazing to see our children grow and play in this space. So happy we found you guys. Thank you 😊. '
Gary from Trowbridge 'Here are a few photos of my kitchen. Great design and quality. I heard about DIY-Kitchens from a friend who had previously bought a kitchen from you.'
Laura from Glasgow 'Very happy with the quality and just love the Dakar colour. Have had lots of compliments. Initially heard of you via Instagram, when I asked a blogger about her kitchen and colour! '
Nick from London 'Here are some photos of my kitchen renovation and utility room. So pleased with how it looks, thank you! '
Pam from Pontefract 'Here are some photos of our beautiful kitchen for your use. Before & after.'
Gary from Widnes 'You were recommended by a friend whose kitchen we were really impressed with.
We have guests often and they are always impressed with the kitchen. So pleased with quality, it's as good as other recognised brands of kitchens but a lot less money!Many thanks!'
Frankie from Surrey 'Thank you! We are delighted with our new kitchen. It is a Linwood Shaker style with a combination of Cobham Blue and Tern White units. It looks fantastic with bar handles in stainless steel effect. We especially love the curved units in the corner, the deep drawers for easy storage of pans and plates and the island.
We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend and after visiting to see their new kitchen, we were happy to go ahead with our order. Our own new kitchen has been admired by several friends, some of whom have subsequently decided to buy their new kitchen from you too!
Well done for providing a great product and a great after-sales service.'
Rachel from Shropshire 'Great quality, love the colour selection. Family had their kitchen from DIY kitchens so was recommended.'
Emma from Durham 'Loved the concept of designing my own kitchen without any sales pressures and cutting out the middle person. I loved that I could add as many or as little extras to my kitchen. Choices were amazing! Easy to work out the cost too. Contacting for advice was easy via mail too and additional orders after were accepted and arrived quickly. Very impressed.
Was easy to plan, I used the scaled squares and printed this and the unit patterns out. Arranged until I was satisfied with the line up of units and then made my purchase.
I heard about DIY kitchens when looking in forums discussing quality of kitchens from Wrens/ Magnet/ Howdons. Many people kept mentioning DIY kitchens, so I googled your site and the rest is history!
Great quality units with strong backs, ready made, painted flawlessly, beautiful oak worktops. I’m utterly delighted with the high quality and finish. Everyone who has visited and admired my kitchen and asked where we purchased. Your site has been shared to a lot of family and friends! '
Sophie from Newcastle Upon Tyne 'Overall the kitchen is amazing! The quality of everything is great. It was so easy to fit ourselves which is a bonus and also came in good time. The in cupboard storage is fab to as we’re utilising the empty spaces which had before. We knocked through the wall, down into the back room, to extend the kitchen. We also changed the french doors to 3 meter bifolds, which allow so much natural light in!'
Colin from Retford 'I'm very pleased that I chose Diy Kitchens to supply My new kitchen. I was impressed with the free design tool and support team who assisted with the design prior to order.
Ordering online was a simple process. Although we had a slight delay with delivery. I was kept updated by the customer support team.
I was further impressed when the kitchen was delivered. The quality of the doors and cabinets were second to non. Far superior the the previous kitchens I have had supplied by other manufacturers. Fitting was made made easier due to the cabinets being pre-assembled. I would definitely recommend Diy Kitchens.'
Elizabeth from South Lanarkshire 'Our kitchen was installed in August 2021 and we love it. We heard about diy kitchens via family and were initially worried about ordering online without seeing the kitchen itself. After seeing a sample door the quality seemed good and we went ahead. The customer service was great, helping to make sure we ordered all the components we needed, but also making sure we didn't over order items we didn't need.
Compared to other kitchens the price was excellent and we couldn't match the oak doors anywhere else close to the price. Delivery was easy and returns of any flawed product was also straightforward. Thanks diy kitchens, we're really happy with the end result.'
Jane from Wirral 'We love the quality of our Norton white kitchen. The doors are really solid and all the drawer mechanisms and soft closers make it look and feel like a much more expensive kitchen! Also had great customer service when needing to change parts of my order and delivery was very professional.'
Mike & Donna from Gloucester 'It took us a long time deciding on the style of our new kitchen and we had looked at other companies but kept coming back to DIY Kitchens. We had some sample door fronts sent us and we were impressed with the quality and price.
The website was very easy to use and the planning tool to design the layout of the kitchen and be able to visualise before buying was really helpful. It was very simple to order and we always had a prompt and helpful response to any questions we had.
We fitted the kitchen ourself and with the units coming fully assembled it made the job so much easier. Your team did a wonderful job fitting the worktops for us.
We love the new look of the kitchen, it was exactly what we had wanted. We also bought some of the little extras for the interior of the cupboards and upgraded the worktop as the price was well within our budget. Something we had not be able to do with the other companies. Thoroughly recommend to others. Thank you so much. '
Rachel & Martin from Pontefract 'We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend we had visited after her kitchen installation. She told us that the price and quality would not be beaten and she was highly delighted with her kitchen. We could see it was great quality so we decided to use DIY kitchens for our up coming renovation.
We visited the showroom which luckily for us was under 5 miles away. However, when we got there we were amazed to find there were people who had travelled hours from all areas of the uk, including Liverpool, Wales and Hampshire! Apparently DIY kitchens' reputation had travelled far and wide. The showroom was beautiful.
We wanted a traditional kitchen with a modern twist. After a bit of advice from the local team on site we ordered the Stanbury Heron Grey. The order process was a bit lengthy but very precise and luckily we had our fitter help us out with the sizes etc.
All the units arrived on time, with really robust packaging and a quality delivery team. We unpacked them all and found they were all top quality and in perfect condition. The reviews had proven to be correct. The best in the UK.
We absolutely love our new kitchen and would recommend DIY kitchens to anyone. '
Rebecca & Shaun from Derby 'We are delighted with our gorgeous diy kitchen. The units came fully built and are solid and great quality. We are very pleased with the overall finish it is what we expected and more after visiting your fantastic show room. '
Lynda & Derek from Kent 'After researching all the big named kitchen companies we came across diy kitchens as highly recommended by various sources, so decided to take a look. The transparency of pricing was something we really appreciated, along with the ability to play around with your planning tool to design a kitchen that perfectly suited our requirements and budget. The choice of unit sizes and types is vast and so helpful when planning. After using your excellent sample service we opted for the solid wood Linwood range in cashmere.
We are over the moon with the finished kitchen. The planning stage took a while but it was well worth it as we now have a fantastic kitchen that not only looks high end, but one that works perfectly for us.
Our kitchen work was carried out in October 2021, knocking through a supporting wall to make a kitchen diner to replace our 30 year old galley kitchen and lounge diner. This was our kitchen fitters first experience of a diy kitchen kitchen. He was extremely impressed with the quality of the units and just how much we got for our money, which included lots of pull out units, drawers and a Le Mans corner unit.
We found your website very user friendly with lots of great advice and guidance. Any queries which we had that weren’t answered on the website were dealt with promptly and efficiently under your support ticket system. We felt confident and fully informed by the time we placed the order, safe in the knowledge that someone at diy kitchens would check it over and raise any obvious mistakes with us.
Our delivery was made late on the Sunday evening, at the end of the week scheduled, and the drivers were very thorough and efficient. We opted to check everything the following day. There was some minor damage to a couple of the doors but, using the ticket system to raise this issues was very straightforward and items were exchanged in a matter of days without question.
It was wonderful to see our careful planning pay off when everything fitted perfectly and we have ended up with the dream kitchen that we had envisaged. Everyone who sees it has been extremely impressed with the quality and the look. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend diy kitchens to anyone and in fact we have already done so. '
John from Stafford 'We are highly delighted with this kitchen as it looks fantastic and the quality of everything is exceptional. We were recommended to try yourselves by a friend and are glad we did.'
Jade From Northampton 'We love our new kitchen! The quality of the cabinetry and hardware surpassed all our expectations and we have been able to create our desired look on a fraction of the budget. We recommend DIY Kitchens to everyone!'
Sharon from Derbyshire 'I am absolutely thrilled with my kitchen, I can honestly say it's the best kitchens I have ever had fitted, this is the eighth kitchen I've had over the years.
The quality is top notch, and the worktops are great, unbelievable for the price. DIY kitchens was recommended to me by the fitter I used he couldn't praise them highly enough. As it's his job you can imagine how many kitchens he's fitted. '
Ken from Herefordshire 'We chose DIY Kitchens after getting several quotes from national kitchen suppliers & also some local ones that supplied & fitted German units, we then received samples of your doors & this confirmed our choice as they were better quality at a lower price.
One other factor was your large selection of the unit sizes plus the interior colours matched the doors etc, something none of the national suppliers did. Once we got the hang of the planner we were able to get a kitchen that suited us & not just one easy to design as we needed to house our existing washing machine & tumble dryer, we found that the decorative side panels & individual doors were perfect for this. We did have a few issues with some damaged units but this was easily sorted & the replacement units delivered quickly.
All in all very happy with the finished result, especially as I was able to fit it myself making a considerable saving on some of the other quotes. '
David from Berkhamsted 'The build quality of the units, doors and all fitting accessories is first class. The service and advice we received from DIYKitchens before finally ordering was excellent and they have been efficient and helpful all follow-up communication.'
Lucy from Suffolk '
My overall impression of our DIY kitchen is that I’m thrilled to bits; the quality is superb, the bespoke paint colour is a perfect match. Our fitter said it was one of the best quality kitchens he’s ever installed, and lots of our trades people commented on what good quality it was during the course of the whole renovation.
I also purchased my quartz worktop via yourselves because it worked out the best value for money of any quote I had, and made the difference between being able to afford quartz, or having to use laminate. I was really impressed from start to finish with the whole experience of buying from DIY Kitchens; we never visited the showroom but felt comfortable ordering having ordered various sample doors and reading many positive reviews of the quality of the cabinets.
The only hair-raising experience was the kitchen being delivered in the last slot of the week; meaning it arrived on Sunday teatime - with the fitter due at 8am the following day! But the customer service team were good at reassuring us it was on the van, and would arrive in time - and the delivery guys were meticulous at ensuring everything was present and correct in time for the fitting to start. Without DIY Kitchens I would have had to compromise on lots of aspects of the kitchen, and wouldn’t now have the kitchen of my dreams, so thank you DIY!'
Julie from Lancashire 'I saw and advert on the motorway and looked on your website, reviews were good, visited the showroom and ordered. I had a joiner visit to hang doors and he said what a fantastic quality kitchen it was. I absolutely love it, easy to order and no issues. I recommend DIY Kitchens! '
Jo from Pontefract 'I was very pleased with the kitchen I received from DIY Kitchens and I have recommended them to many of my work colleagues.'
Anna from Leeds 'We bought a kitchen from DIY last year (2021) and we LOVE it (and so does everyone else that sees it!) it’s transformed our home and we love spending time in there now.
We love the quality of the kitchen, it feels very sturdy and the colour is exactly what we wanted. We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We heard about DIY as my sister and partner had a DIY kitchen fitted and after seeing their’s, it made us want a new kitchen even more, and we couldn’t resist! '
Brian of Castleford 'I was so impressed by this very high quality product, comprising clean lines and a super finish. The ordering process was just so simple and made things very easy. I was extremely impressed just how easy it was to install the units and the thought put into the design elements of the product. Above all the technical support and backup customer service re any changes etc was just absolutely outstanding. Well done and thank you DIY !! '
Jo & Ryan from Warwick 'We are overall very happy with our new DIY Kitchen. The kitchen units are really good quality, they do not feel at all flimsy, and everything appears to be a really good build quality. Everything arrived as ordered. A mistake that we made with the order was resolved quickly and helpfully by the DIY team. We are really happy with the DIY Kitchens units and would recommend them to anyone.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through a recommendation from a work colleague. I spent a lot of time in the 3d planner, which we found really useful. '
Helen from Saffron Walden 'I was very pleased with the kitchen when it arrived - I used my joiners that fitted a Howden’s kitchen in a previous house for us and they were also impressed with the quality and pleased that the doors and drawers were already fitted as it shortened their labour time. They thought the quality was on par with the Howden’s better quality range. They added some bespoke oak features to the kitchen for me as well which I think warms up the back and white feel of the kitchen.
After some delays with the delivery date due to covid, When it did arrive, the delivery guys who bought the kitchen were extremely organised and were very careful of my new door frame! They ticked off every part as it came in and one missing kickboard was sent shortly afterwards. I had missed off one cupboard from my order - when I rang up, they kindly put it on a fast track order and it was here before the joiners arrived to fit the kitchen.
The quartz was also ordered through DIY kitchens and the company were very efficient in ringing me to organise times etc to come. As were the templater and fitters. Overall I am happy to recommend DIY kitchens to anyone who asks me where I got it from! '
Joanne from Manchester 'Our completed diy kitchen, our kitchen fitter could not get over the quality. Thank you so much we love it!'
Emily & Stuart from Norfolk 'So pleased with our DIY Kitchens kitchen! We opted for solid wood for durability. So far it’s certainly impressed. Especially with 2 small children and their toys!
Extremely pleased with the colour. I wanted an off white but not cream, this colour is perfect. I was beginning to lose hope as I couldn’t find what I wanted without paying for a bespoke colour, then I stumbled upon Diy Kitchens through Instagram. It was ideal being able to order samples to my home as we live over 3 hours away plus it was during a lockdown. We settled on mussel which is a Diy Kitchens standard colour. I’m very indecisive, it took me a while to commit to a colour, but this is spot on and I love it!
Value for money, its brilliant. We had quotes from competitors for the same specification kitchen and they were coming in a few thousand pounds more.
The delivery was very efficient, stress free, and friendly. As was any contact with customer service, they were really helpful in making sure we’d considered everything we needed.
I’m a very happy customer and would recommend, and do recommend, Diy Kitchens to anyone thinking of a new kitchen.'
Mat & Tom from Surrey 'Here are some pictures of our recently completed ground floor extension and renovation. We absolutely love our cabinets. Great value for money, and one of the few places you can find customisable wood front cabinets and doors with so many different cabinet sizes and configurations. Really happy with the finish of the doors, everything looks and feels hi-quality.'
Matt & Jenna from Oxfordshire 'Absolutely over the moon with the quality and look of the kitchen and all for a very reasonable price. Would 100% recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Kara from Hertfordshire 'We are so please with the quality of the kitchen. We love everything about it. We love the space saving cupboards such as the pull our corner unit, the pull out bin and also the pantry with the pull out drawers.
We found the process of designing and ordering the kitchen using the online planner very straight forward, your team were on hand to help with any questions. The after service care was also brilliant. We have since ordered our utility room with you too - although we haven’t fitted it yet. Three friends have also ordered with you since seeing our kitchen! '
Pam from Norwich 'We were very impressed with our kitchen and so were the kitchen fitters who fitted it. They said it was very good quality and very good to work with. Everyone who has seen it has said how lovely it looks and how well made it is with a lively finish. We were very pleased indeed with the finished result. We had excellent guidance and help with the planning. The worktops are amazing, very well fitted and finished and look fantastic.
We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend who had bought their kitchen from you and they were very pleased with the quality.
We would recommend your kitchens to anyone looking to build one. We have eventually built our dream kitchen with your help and are very pleased with the end result- it’s fantastic and I LOVE bring in it.'
Laura from Maidstone 'Here are some pictures of my amazing DIY Kitchen, which I am very proud of. I had googled kitchen comparisons and DIY Kitchens came up with excellent reviews.
I designed the kitchen during lockdown. All the regular kitchen suppliers were closed, so I couldn’t see any kitchens. DIY Kitchens was the perfect solution. I booked a video call with the warehouse in Pontefract and had an online tour of things I wanted to see and could ask any questions.
Having reviewed the website I ordered a selection of door styles and colours, handles and quartz and wooden samples.
I used the CAD system to design the kitchen myself. This was a bit scary as the dimensions had to be perfect but I used the ‘how to do videos’ which helped a lot. I had looked at lots of pictures of kitchens on websites so knew what I wanted and set out to copy!
This was one of the best bits of using DIY Kitchens, I could design it myself, in my own time and could change it as many times as I wanted. My kitchen has been designed perfectly for me. I knew where I wanted the spice rack, the recycled bin, I put in an extra under counter freezer because I always run out of freezer space. I chose pull put drawers and pan drawers. I chose a double sink as I was always so irritated by my 1.5 sink in my last kitchen. I copied the dresser effect of beautiful Neptune Kitchen. I had imagined myself living in the kitchen, preparing meals, washing dishes etc so everything about it is practical.
The CAD stopped me making mistakes by sending error messages! When I had come up with my draft design I sent it off to DIY Kitchens to be checked (several times as I was very nervous!). The staff were so helpful and patient, it gave me confidence that my design would work before I placed an order.
I chose Norton Muscle. The colour was just perfect. I didn’t want white or grey, Muscle is a pale green grey and feels very ‘farrow and ball’!
The after sales service was excellent. During the installation we discovered a stop cock in the utility room so had to delay the template for the quartz. This was not a problem, DIY Kitchens were so helpful.
6 months on and my kitchen is still looking brand new, the feel and quality is great and it looks very expensive yet was a fraction of the price of a high end kitchen. We are about to do another kitchen renovation and I am sticking with DIY Kitchens - no need to look anywhere else !'
John & Jenny from Liverpool 'Here are some pictures of a kitchen that we had installed last Autumn. It took a long time to plan (it was to go into a newly built kitchen diner extension) and we’re really pleased with how the project turned out and the overall quality of the units.'
Lindsey from Hampshire 'The kitchen is the Stanbury in dove grey, we were very pleased with the quality of the units, the delivery is great! The fact they are built already makes the installation much easier.
The vast range of different cupboards and drawers sizes enabled us to get exactly what we wanted within our kitchen layout and we took advantage of the versatility of the range by using different cupboards for different functions, we have created 2 x 1000mm larder cupboards from using tall floor cupboard units on top of 1000mm pan drawer units they are amazing hide everything off the worktops! Exactly what we wanted.'
Suzanne from Surrey 'Pleased with the quality and it appears to be hard wearing. Video tours very useful during Covid. Customer service very prompt and efficient to respond to order queries and missing parts.'
Mr & Mrs Lee from Walsall 'Upon doing some research on the web and viewing YouTube videos I found the name ‘DIY Kitchens’ as builders were commenting on the quality of their units and easy fitment.
After visiting the market leaders and shocked at their prices, we decided to take a look at DIY Kitchens. Upon viewing their website I liked the look of their Linwood range, mainly due to the door construction was made of wood - our previous kitchen was foil wrapped MDF and the foil was peeling away on the edges of the doors.
Once we decided on the Linwood, I used DIY Kitchens cad designer tool to layout the design of our kitchen. The cad tool is really user-friendly and by measuring the overall room dimensions, it was easy to select the cabinets and place them in their required positions to ensure correct fitment.
Once we decided on the design, we arranged to visit their showroom to view their cabinets colours & quality of construction. I must say after visiting other well-known kitchen suppliers the quality was superior in construction & aesthetics. After walking around the showroom with no sales pressure we were instantly impressed & decided to go for the Linwood in Cornflower Blue with Natural Lancaster Oak carcase.
The next day I placed my order and awaited the delivery which promptly arrived on the given date. The units were carefully unloaded and checked. Upon inspection some of the doors were slightly marked, however on reporting this DIY Kitchens support team arranged replacements so all good to go.
Upon being let down by our kitchen fitter I decided to fit the kitchen myself. Upon going out and purchasing some necessary tools such as a laser lever and fine circular saw blades, I started work. Being fully constructed cabinets, the units fit like a dream. It was just a matter of making sure they were square and level; the laser lever made this very easy and was well worth the expense.
The project in all took a few weeks to complete. The only issue I had was cutting down wall stowaway unit so that it fit behind the main kitchen door, as the clearance was only 150mm. I needed to made a good job of this as this was going to be my wife’s gin cabinet!
Having lived with the kitchen for over 10 months we are delighted with the outcome, all our friends have commented on what a beautiful kitchen we have and want to know who supplied and fitted it, especially after telling them the cost, having solid wooden painted doors with soft closed hinges and drawer runners together with a solid oak worktops. Other kitchen suppliers quoted us over £15,000 for the same design but with lesser quality.
Take my word, if you are thinking of buying a new kitchen take your time and do your research, and then visit the DIY kitchen showroom, you’d be totally surprised how much you can save compared with the other market leaders, also you will have a far superior and constructed kitchen, which will last. '
Samantha from North Yorkshire 'Here are some pictures from when we brought the property through to the final photo today.
We absolutely love the kitchen, the quality is amazing even our joiner was a little concerned at first as he had never heard of you guys but when he came and saw the units he couldn't believe the quality either. We got the Norton range with Oak worktops and absolutely love it!
We heard about DIY kitchens from some friends who have also used yourselves before and again, the comments where the same fantastic quality and so handy they come fully built! '
Nina From London 'We absolutely love our new kitchen! It has completely transformed our home. It was easy to plan the kitchen of our dreams as there was so much choice and the pre-sales phone and email advice/ support was excellent. We were unable to visit the showroom due to lockdown restrictions but we managed fine just with the website and phone advice.
My husband is a carpenter and ordered from DIY as he had heard of your excellent reputation. The kitchen was easy to fit and was superb value for money. We have had so many lovely comments from family and friends who cannot believe how much it cost us.
The great thing about the Clayton range is that it is paintable. My husband designed our island around a few of the units in the Heron Grey colour to contrast with the Tern white of the rest of the units. In future if we fancied a change, we can easily repaint in a different colour. We already know the quality of the DIY Kitchens primer and paint is excellent as my husband used this to finish off the bespoke island and hob mantle he made.
Overall we are extremely happy with our kitchen and would recommend DIY kitchens to anyone who is looking for a good quality kitchen that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is! The customer service is excellent too- we had a few damage units in transit, which were replaced quickly. This I think sets DIY Kitchens above its rivals!'
Steph from North Wales 'The space was exceptionally hard to plan for, it was tiny, had a step, was in the eaves and the stairs came up in the middle of it! But, we had to utilise every mm because it was due to serve 12 people as the retreat's kitchen.
The other major problem was it was derelict when I was designing it so had to guess a lot! I had many meetings with other kitchen providers and DIY won hands down in every aspect. I used the kitchen builder and as things changed and unfolded they helped me adapt the design, they were so, so patient with every request or problem I came with. They were honestly incredible, I would have sent them a thank you card if I wasn't up to my eyes in the build!
The options for units surpassed the others and the quality really is incredible, everyone comments on them. Even the delivery chaps were the most helpful delivery people I've ever met!! I couldn't fault DIY kitchens and when we can do our own we will be using them again. And I tell everyone to use them. '
Sophie from Leeds 'Kitchen was great value and is of superior quality. I was pleased with the delivery times and the ease of putting the kitchen together. The showroom was ideal as had everything easily available to view. I have recommended DIY kitchens to several friends since. My life has changed since renovating my kitchen and is now a lovely, calm family space. '
Rebecca from Whittlesey 'Here are some pictures of our new kitchen and also some before the transformation. We have had a wall knocked down and it made into an open plan kitchen/diner which we love.
We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen! It was a very easy process from ordering to having it delivered. The cupboards are of very good quality, arrived fully assembled and all labelled accordingly which helped speed up the installation of it with only needing to attach the legs and door handles.
We have had many comments on our kitchen saying how stunning it looks and we couldn't agree more! We love the colour of the doors against the white tiles and worktops. My husband had used DIY kitchens previously for a small kitchen in another property so we knew we had to use them again when we wanted to replace the kitchen in our house as the kitchens are very well priced for the quality and service you get.'
Katie from Barnsley 'Absolutely love our kitchen! Our kitchen fitters also said it was a pleasure to fit too! Moving into a new home and being able to have our bespoke kitchen at an affordable price was excellent! We found yourselves online and family have also used yourselves. '
Marianne & Steve from Surrey 'Here are some pictures of our new kitchen, which was installed in September into our new build bungalow last year (which used to be my parent’s back garden of 50 years!). We heard about DIY Kitchens a few years ago and used them when we renovated our home in Haslemere in 2014.
We absolutely love our kitchen from DIY Kitchens - the base units are Norton in Cobham Blue, and the corner units are bespoke. The worktop is in Ariel quartz.
For a complete novice, I found the process quite easy and enjoyable (the virtual 3D planner was a revelation). The quality of the kitchen is fantastic - all solid wood; our builder was very impressed and asked for the details to give to his other clients. For a fraction of the price, we have ended up with a beautiful, bespoke kitchen that looks like it came with a much higher price tag!'
Hannah from Bridlington 'Here are some photos of our finished kitchen. Norton Shaker units in Cobham Blue with oak worktops. I could not be happier with it, beautiful quality and always complemented on the colour. '
Linda from Knaresborough 'I had heard about DIY Kitchens from Which? The main reason I wanted to go with yourselves for our kitchen, in addition to the quality, was because of the bespoke colour service you offer. I knew I wanted dark greens (it is a north facing room so wanted to embrace that and make sure it felt warm and cosy). I love my kitchen and it gets compliments from whoever sees it and i'm so pleased with how it turned out. I feel I got a much more expensive looking kitchen for the price.
There are also a few pictures of the room to show what it looked like before. It was a very dark rear lounge room. The room is now brighter due to opening up the area beyond the kitchen you can see, taking down a wall and putting in larger windows and a roof lantern. This area (not shown on my photos since not the kitchen) is now the living and dining area.'
David & Helen from Cheshire 'We are absolutely delighted with our kitchen. We heard about diy-kitchens from friends who have had one for several years and have been really pleased.
The quality of build and finish is fantastic, with a huge range of unit types at a great price. Our builder was also really impressed with the quality and value for money compared to those he normally uses.
Although we placed the order during COVID-19 lockdown, so couldn’t visit the showroom, we were confident to buy and had no problems. We designed the layout ourselves and had some great support and advice from the sales team.'
Allan & Pauline from Attleborough 'Two work friends recommend using DIY Kitchens after purchasing kitchens from your company, as they we both pattern makers, I thought their recommendations worth while, I wasn't disappointed.
Well made products, well packed, good delivery. We liked having an option of the carcass colour also having solid wood doors on the units. Door hinges are easy to remove when required to unlatch doors. Good thick carcass case 19mm.'
Karen & Paul from North Wales 'Here are some pictures of our kitchen, that my husband put in himself! So proud of it, really excellent value cabinets and worktops. Site was easy to navigate to plan our kitchen, we picked everything on line.
We moved into our home in March last year, our kitchen was the first project to tackle, with a fairly tight budget, we shopped around on line for kitchens, as at the time the world was in Covid! We looked at reviews on Trustpilot, plus the quality and price offers, DIY kitchens met our needs and budget, surpassing our expectations when the kitchen was finished.
Although this is a DIY kitchen, the cabinets arrive assembled, so no messy flatpacks to deal with, really impressive solid doors were our choice, soft close hinges,integrated appliance doors, pelmets and kick boards,contemporary, but in keeping with our old cottage. We did not want ultra high shine modern, more modern country, this range fits the bill and looks far more expensive than it was.
We chose the Norton Dakar range in a beautiful grey green colour. It was easy to accessorise with reclaimed scaffold board shelving and retro appliances.
Once completed, the company DIY kitchens organised templating our kitchen for solid granite worktops, a short while later, fitted worktops. Again all chosen online from a really good variety of kitchen work surfaces.
Overall, we would recommend DIY kitchens for the best quality, customer service and price, we had no issues at all.'
Sharon from Sheffield 'We completed our DIY kitchen last year in Heron Grey/Malton Range. As you can see the kitchen was in an old cottage, on the small size and difficult because it had 2 doors and a recess with over lintal where an old range used to be.
What I loved about DIY kitchen was the range of different unit sizes and shapes which allowed us the make the best use of the limited space. It is also great that the units are the same colour as doors, so no end panels needed. I found my kitchen to be really good quality, no plywood backs and great that it arrives assembled.
We moved house shortly after and I'm sure it was a selling point. I loved it so much I'm going to repeat in my new home!'
Sherron & Bob from Solihull 'Although being septuagenarians we designed and fitted the new layout ourselves using Linwood Cobham Blue for the base units and Linwood Tern White for the wall units.
We were very pleased with the quality of all the doors, units and fittings. The worktops in quartz Calacatta, were supplied and fitted separately.
We originally discovered DIY Kitchens on-line whilst looking for kitchen ideas and were impressed by the range of styles and options available.
Everything was delivered on time and any questions we had were always answered and dealt with promptly using the web site email system. Given the Covid lockdown issues at the time, customer service was very good. We have no hesitation in recommending DIY Kitchens.'
Jess & Jonathan from Manchester 'This is our second kitchen from DIY kitchens. We knew before we moved into our new house that we wanted another, as we were so pleased with the last one. The doors are amazing quality, everything comes assembled and the customer service when you need something is brilliant. We LOVE the kitchen planner tool too; don’t know what we’d have done without it!'
Ellin from London 'Very happy with quality of units, especially with quality of hinges (although a bit disconcerted to see that one of the kitchens currently featuring in EastEnders has the same cabinets in the same color with the same knobs!)'
Toby from Cornwall 'DIY kitchens whole process from design to delivery was amazing, being able to design the kitchen using there own software was the best part, even when getting stuck the response time was so quick and helpful.
We ordered samples before making any final decisions and I’m glad we did as some of the colours do look slightly different in person and with different lighting.
The quality of the units are great, very solidly built, coming already built made fitting them fairly straightforward. We have had our kitchen in place for 7 months now and it’s still looking great with no issues, very happy customer. '
Lindsey from Worcester 'We love the style, quality and finish of the fantastic new kitchen and utility room spaces we have created by using DIY Kitchens for all our units, doors, splashbacks, worktops and the fabulous sink! It was great to be able to visit the factory to see the components being made and knowing they are produced in the UK, to very high standards, was one of the important reasons for our choice of DIY Kitchens.
There is such a fantastic choice from the wonderful showroom and we were made really welcome during our visits, with staff happy to advise and answer questions but never with any feeling of being rushed or pressured in any way and the onsite refreshments were a wonderful bonus!
Also the online/telephone services were brilliant and enabled us to quickly and easily to place any additional orders, seek advice or check information. Ordering and delivery were easy and everything was delivered very professionally, exactly to the schedule and in great condition. Best quality and value for money of any kitchen we found on the market.'
Bob from Cornwall 'We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen supplied by yourselves. Our kitchen fitters commented on the outstanding quality and said that in future they would be ordering their kitchens from DIY. Everything was delivered on time, exactly as ordered and beautifully packed. The price was outstanding value for money. Once again many thanks for your great service.'
Mary from Hertforshire 'We ordered and received our kitchen back in June last year and we love our kitchen! It’s perfect for our small terraced house. I’ve sent some before and after pictures.
The quality of the units is better than any of the high st brands our fitter initially recommended and we’ve suggested to all our friends renovating that they should do the same thing. The oak worktop is great, we had some left over so made a chopping board and also a couple of desks by adding cheap legs from Amazon!'
Kevin from London 'I found the kitchen really well designed and so pleased I went for factory assembled units. I do all my own DIY building work and would say anyone with basic skills should have no issues carrying out their own fitting.
I had the worktops professionally fitted, and the fitter said that the quality of the doors was some of the best he had seen. He could also not believe the price, especially the larder unit which would normally alone be much more from any of the other big suppliers. I could also not fault the customer service experience, with polite and speedy replies. Overall a first class company and would not hesitate in using again.
I'm pleased I made the visit from London to the showroom, as it allowed me to really see the details and finalise my choice. At the time you could not supply the appliances.'
Adrian from Norfolk 'We were surprised at the great quality but so we’re our kitchen fitters! This was confirmation that we had made the right choice! The value was amazing, saving around 40% on a lesser kitchen from Howdens!
Everyone loves our new kitchen, we never even considered you until a friend of a friend mentioned how great you were. I was very worried about getting the order right but I uploaded the Howdens plan and a day later you came back with everything I needed. Still being sceptical, I drove the 4 hours to your showroom and after seeing your product firsthand, I was convinced enough to place the order, which saving me thousands of pounds and gave us the kitchen we wanted! What’s not to like.'
Toni from Liverpool 'Love the whole kitchen and the colours amazing, the pull out larder is my favourite part of the kitchen as it stores so many things! The quality is lovely and the Matt finish is perfect.
I heard of DIY kitchens from seeing it on Instagram and chose it as it was a cheaper option compared to other big kitchen brands. '
Manfred from Carmarthenshire 'Finally managed to get around to taking pictures of my new kitchen, which I purchased in the Summer of 2020 from yourselves. I still have minor details to finish but I am very pleased with it, so thought you may want to show it on your site along with the other customer kitchens?
I chose Malton with Carbon base units and Cashmere wall units, as well as a utility corner of Cashmere base units with an Oak worktop and a white sparkle worktop on the carbon units.'
Rob & Gill from Manchester 'We decided to change our kitchen during lockdown and spent hours online browsing traditional kitchen suppliers. We could not speak to a kitchen designer, visit showrooms or estimate costs and we thought it was not going to be possible. That changed when we discovered DIY Kitchens online.
The online planner was so easy to use and calculated all the “extras” and spacing required. We printed out the various views in 3D and were able to stand in our kitchen and discuss it. We altered the plan until we had a final version. The planner calculated the approximate costs and we experimented with different styles until we found the style we liked within our budget. Because we could buy individual components, we adapted existing cupboards by replacing/adding doors which saved on the cost of a complete cabinet.
We ordered several door samples, and we booked an online video tour of the showroom with a helpful assistant answering our questions. After ordering, which was easy thanks to the online planner, the kitchen was manufactured and delivered on time and well packaged.
The delivery team was careful and very helpful. Due to lockdown, we planned to install it ourselves but were a little daunted when seeing the enormity of the task ahead. However, the rigid, ready assembled units were easy to install, and there were plenty of helpful articles online from DIY Kitchens. The after sales service was also excellent considering the lockdown restrictions.
We are really delighted with the results and are truly amazed that we were able to source, plan, cost, buy and install such a high-quality kitchen without visiting a showroom, using a kitchen designer, or paying for installation. Buying online from DIY Kitchens meant we were able to do more within our budget. Although we know the kitchen is the same size, it now feels spacious, lighter, easier to use and the worktop space feels enormous.
We highly recommend DIY Kitchens for your next kitchen, and suggest you try out their kitchen planner. As we found out, nobody knows how you use your kitchen better than you!'
Ross from Wales 'Here are some before and after pictures of my Clayton Shaker Cobham Blue / Dove Grey with white quartz worktops. Walls are painted in Dulux Egyptian cotton and the tiles are concrete effect 600x600. This was delivered and fitted in May 2021. Very pleased with the finish of the kitchen and quality.'
Mr & Mrs Kelly from Yorkshire 'Here are some pics of our DIY kitchen install, finished Nov last year. Very happy with quality of units. Sage green tall fridge unit opposite oven, microwave tower, integrated washer & under counter freezer.'
Bev from Essex 'The process of planning/ordering a kitchen from DIY kitchens was so easy from start to finish. If we were unsure about something we just emailed or phoned and our questions/advice was very quick.
We absolutely love our kitchen and friends/family do too. It definitely has the wow factor and Everybody who walks through the door is taken aback. The quality is superb. We had one small paint spray fault but the part was sent with no hassle at all. I have already recommended DIY Kitchens to lots of friends who in turn have thought the same once they had received their order. Fab company, amazing products and great service. Thank you.'
Graham from Leicestershire 'Very pleased with service, delivery and product quality. A couple of additional requirements were dealt with efficiently. Would recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Jennie from Romford 'Partner installed these with a friend and they found them straight forward to work with. The quality and look are great and modern.
DIY Kitchens was recommended to us by a friend, who’s builder said they were the best units they had ever seen and worked with.
We used wall units as base units for the return in our extension and this works really well whilst saving space but giving the additional storage. We also went for higher wall units in the kitchen for additional storage too.
Extras from DIY Kitchens were lighting, handles and sink. '
Oksana from West Midlands 'The overall impressions and quality are excellent, one year on still looks like new. My husband installed the kitchen himself, he is not a professional installer, but a confident DIYer. Communication with the company was great, delivery on time despite lockdowns. Would use again and highly recommend to anyone.'
Chris from Burgess Hill 'We had a huge amount of fun designing our Kitchen using the online tool and also the support of DIY Kitchens when we needed it, even during lockdowns, etc.
Because we couldn’t travel to the showroom at the time, we had a virtual walk around with a lovely assistant (Sorry, we have forgotten her name) and were able to ask the same stupid questions as we would have done in person, and also see some great ideas in terms of integration with other kitchen essentials/equipment.
The fact that most companies send their units flat-packed I’m afraid would have driven me over the edge. These units came fully assembled (even with the doors and soft closers installed) and any adjustment needed was due more to the fact that a 170 year-old house will never have a straight horizontal or vertical face or 90 degree angle.
This was an opportunity to have a kitchen and Utility Room which looks good and works perfectly in terms of ergonomics and the extra vigorous testing given by a riotous six year-old daughter and a young crazy female pup (who loves her bed in the Utility Room).
Although I am a Marine Engineer, I had zero previous experience with the installation of kitchens but, I found the whole process a really valuable experience which turned out really well (even my wife agrees!!). From initial planning, through ordering, a couple of last-minute changes, delivery and final installation it was really smooth.
Yes, I could have found someone to install the kitchen and saved some time but, being in lockdown, time wasn’t really a factor, I even managed to keep a workable sink going whilst the floor was re-tiled. We also saved thousands of pounds on the installation and the initial cost of the Kitchen. Always remember; Google, YouTube, DIY forums and the internet in general are your friends and are the single-most important places for information on ‘how to do’ stuff.
We can’t thank the guys at DIY enough for what was and is a fantastic change to our way of living. We had a whole raft of recommendations for DIY Kitchens from both trusted friends and family. We did go to other well-known suppliers and found that, even those who claimed to be the cheapest kitchens, really never understood what we wanted when they sat down to do some designs with us, their prices were markedly higher too and we were nervous of paying a high cost for something which wasn’t quite right. Now we have perfection (in our opinion) at a very reasonable price.'
Jill & Michael from Edinburgh 'We absolutely love our new kitchen. Ordering from DIY Kitchens has been one of the easiest experiences during a full house renovation. The online design tool meant we could choose exactly what we wanted for the space, the units and worktops are great quality and the customer service couldn’t have been better. '
Cassie from Kent 'Very impressed with the quality of the kitchen, really well made and solid construction. Good service, couldn’t fault the whole experience.'
Rob & Hannah from Hertfordshire 'Here are some pictures showing the transformation of our kitchen. It’s taken a while but we did it all ourselves (with the exception of the gas) with our lockdown baby in tow.
We’re really pleased with the quality of the cabinets and loved the fact that we could choose our own colours. The variety of units and online planner ensured that we made the most of the space. '
Liz from Coventry 'The kitchen has been finished for over 6 months now and we absolutely love it. Especially love the corner larder unit which is so spacious and handy. Quality of doors is fantastic and I love the bespoke colour that I chose. I heared of DIY Kitchens through Instagram and by watching other people’s renovations.'
Charlotte from Northampton 'Amazing service from DIY kitchens. There were no discrepancies on the delivery. Everything was in perfect condition and we were kept informed at every step of the way. I had to add on a couple of things which was no problem at all and customer services were happy to help. (Thanks Bridie).
My mum had kitted out her office with DIY units and recommended them to me. They were head and shoulders above the other companies we looked at. Our kitchen fitter said it was the easiest kitchen he’d ever done and would now recommend them to his customers. Would 100% use and recommend DIY again.'
Gregg & Kerry from Carlisle 'The doors and units we received from DIY Kitchens are of the highest quality. The overall impression is extremely sophisticated. We love the silky feel of the doors, the smooth action of the soft close mechanism and the variety of units that allowed us to create a kitchen that functions exactly as we wanted.'
Chris & Vicky from Surrey 'When we began our kitchen extension project we were in one of the UK lockdowns and kitchen showrooms were mostly closed. This led us to begin looking online. We were really impressed with DIY Kitchens range, service offered, the online design planner and of course the price! As first time kitchen planners we had a number of questions. The customer service team were really helpful and gave us lots of guidance.
We had imagined that we would go for a mid grey kitchen, but at the very last minute decided on the Cobham Blue for the wall units and the Dove Grey for the island. We are delighted that we did. The dove grey in the centre of the room helps to make the room feel bigger and the dark blue wall units bring a sense of drama to the room whilst feeling in keeping with our Victorian property.
We fitted it ourselves with a little help from some handy friends who had some experience. The units were well built and installed much easier than we had imagined. We had one small item missing when the delivery arrived but the customer service were quick to remedy this.
The kitchen has been in about 8 months in our busy household. 3 small kids and lots of visitors. It’s still looking good thanks to the small touch up paint pots that were sent with the order that were used once to touch up a couple of small scratches.
We love to entertain and everyone who visits is wowed by the kitchen and we’ve recommend DIY Kitchens to many people since.
Thanks for our amazing kitchen DIY Kitchens. We love it! '
Jane from York 'Here are the completed pictures of my kitchen, I absolutely love it! I have loads more units and worktop space than previously but it still feels more spacious than before. The fitter Paul @eden_jbs did an amazing job of fitting it, he did the flooring and bench seating too. He was recommended to me by my neighbour.'
Jacqueline from Cardiff 'Thank you so much. Your help with our order has been invaluable providing excellent customer service with a quite difficult set of circumstances. It is clear that you and DIY Kitchens have a culture of excellence, high quality and customer satisfaction. We have recommended DiY kitchens to many people we know and will continue to do so. We thought you might wish to see some photos of the kitchen installed. We are delighted with the quality.'
Deb from Essex 'Everything has now arrived and our kitchen & utility are finally finished, both rooms look gorgeous! I'd also just like to say again a big thank you for all the help and support you've given us with the few issues.'
Katie from Oxford 'In love with my kitchen, the finish and quality is excellent and the white is exactly what I was looking for. Also love how easy they are to install.
I heard about DIY Kitchen’s through a friend and was not disappointed. The quote was thousands of pounds cheaper than other kitchen suppliers.'
Rob from Sheffield 'Here are some pictures of my new kitchen from yourselves, i've also added 3 before pictures as well. A great quality kitchen and customer service too. You were recommended to me by a couple of friends.'
Lisa from Hertfordshire 'Here are some photos from our extension with a new kitchen and utility room with units from DIY kitchens.
Both are the Stanbury range. The kitchen is Heron Grey and White and the utility room is Cornflower Blue with an oak worktop. The worktop for the kitchen was sourced independently.
We love the units and found DIY KITCHENS to be extremely helpful in the planning phase. '
Joan from Essex 'Thank you. We are so happy to have our DIY Kitchen finished in time for Christmas.'
Victoria from Southampton 'Images of my completed kitchen. We heard about DIY kitchen through a tradesperson.'
Loz and Andy from Sunderland 'We ordered our kitchen earlier this year and couldn’t be happier with it. We went for your Clayton range in Cobham blue.
The overall experience was nothing but positive. From even before placing our actual order our questions and queries were answered quickly and efficiently.
There was a slight issue with the quality of a drawer front and an end panel upon delivery but this was dealt with super quickly and rectified with no issue at all.
Our joiner who fitted the kitchen was as equally impressed as us at the quality of the supplied kitchen with doors already attached. This made the installation so much quicker.
I had seen a few accounts on Instagram with DIY kitchens so decided to take a look and we’re so pleased we did. Not only is the quality second to none, we also found the kitchen to be competitively priced too.
We are already planning our utility room and will be back again to order from you, thinking this time your Malton range in Cashmere.'
Lea from Leicester 'We had an extension built in late 2020 to extend our kitchen which was very old and tired. Fitted my own kitchen, first time that I have ever attempted anything like this.
Would consider myself an average DIYer and the units coming already assembled made the job as easy as it could have been.
Quality was above what I was expecting. Absolutely love the grey carcasses and the doors and hinges are top quality too. Absolutely love my new DIY Kitchens kitchen.
I heard about you from extensive web trawling over many weeks.'
Paul from Staffordshire 'We are delighted with the finished product. Throughout the process from visiting the showroom, planning, ordering, and delivery, the quality of service and product has been 10/10'
Kirsty from Kent '
DIY kicthens was a great help when it came to ordering our new kitchen. We relocated where the kitchen would be, as we had a new extension. I did everything from scratch using their website.
I ordered a few sample doors, and some of the worktop too! The whole process was pain free. The samples went back when the order arrived and I got a refund on those straight away. When I made the order I added one unit taller than the others and this was picked up right away. The service with DIY was brilliant. I couldn’t believe I got the order all correct, we had 2 colours so this did make things a bit difficult when it came to ordering.
The results speak for themselves, our fitter said it was easy to fit and he himself would be recommending DIY kitchens. The guys who came to fit the worktop were helpful too, we got to choose some amendments when they were here.
We’re really pleased with the overall result and the quality. Our dog Rio approves of the new look too.'
Claire from Wirral 'We’ve recommended DIY Kitchens to many of our friends and family, and have used them multiple times in various properties. The units are excellent quality and very well built, various tradesmen have been very impressed with their quality and ease of fitting. Plus they look really good! Overall, a really good product for a great price.'
Elena from Leeds 'A year ago we moved to the new house and I was looking for a kitchen supplier who can offer narrow based cabinets. I was juggling between Ikea and DIY kitchen but after visiting the showroom I had no doubt anymore. In my opinion, they have the best range of cabinets and colour and the quality is outstanding.
My builder who installed it also agreed with the good quality cabinets, drawers and worktop. We have had this kitchen for one year and never regret it. We love it every minute!'
Arron & Victoria from Liverpool 'We are really pleased with our Linwood Carbon kitchen! Since we have an L-shaped kitchen we initially found it difficult to find ways to optimise our storage, however, we needn’t have worried as with DIY Kitchen’s many options for units, we found that with their corners units, pan drawers and larder with built-in drawers we had plenty of choice!
The fact that the units arrive already built it was super easy to put everything into place before the final fit to visualise how it would all come together. The customer service team were really helpful with our order, especially with the finer details such as they kindly suggested ordering a profile that would go around our basket unit that would frame it nicely along with the units neighbouring it. Would definitely recommend!'
Keith & Lesley from Lincs 'Superb quality painted doors with excellent assembled units and ‘top notch’ ironmongery and furniture.
First class service throughout. Exceptional delivery service with virtually fully recyclable packaging-Not one blemish on the entire kitchen.
Retained some existing units and was able to match to new units by just purchasing new doors. Cannot fault the whole experience in dealing with DIY Kitchens.
Found DIY Kitchens on-line and then went to visit their extensive showroom. Unbeatable range of styles and colours all at super competitive prices. Huge savings on some previous quotes by other companies.'
Sally from Howden 'The service offered by DIY Kitchens was fabulous. Delivery was super - everything came wrapped and labelled so it was easy to sort. The quality of the kitchen is second to none. We have received lots of positive comments from friends and family who have seen it. Thank you very much. We literally found DIY Kitchens from surfing the net. '
Ali & Tom from London 'We love our dove grey cabinets, the colour is soothing, stylish and looks great with our black and bronze fixtures. The units are really well made, neat and sturdy and the butcher’s block provides a great prep space-come-dining table. Great quality for a great price and we love our new kitchen! '
Jenny & Ian from Coventry 'We love our new kitchen and utility room, the cupboards are brilliant quality, the online planning tool was really easy to use and the customer support has been excellent.'
Jennifer from Gloucestershire 'I am not a professional builder or kitchen installer, but a keen DIYer. To date I have installed 5 kitchens over the past 6 years in ours and our daughter’s homes. The latest kitchen was for the family holiday home in France.
My daughter who purchased the kitchen as her contribution ot the home, was told about DIY kitchens by a friend. I looked them up and also found a very useful review on YouTube, we hired a professional kitchen fitter, compared 10 major suppliers including the major usual ‘high street’ suppliers. DIY kitchens scored the highest for quality of construction, range and choice of colours. So we took the plunge and purchased from them.
So the good points: the carcasses come ready assembled and are rigid, the cabinets are 18mm thick, they are very well made and as one would expect from an automated ‘high end’ assembly line. The hinge and drawer runners are Blum and very high quality.
The range of styles and colours (the basic range offers 16 colours for doors, drawer fronts end panels etc. and 4 basic colours of carcass at no extra cost).
Additionally, the range of sizes is very useful with carcases increasing in 50mm increments from 300 to 500mm, this offers far greater flexibility when designing a kitchen.
The base units are available in 560, 460 and 360mm depths. This is better than almost any other supplier we have come across. Finally, the customer service was exemplary, with the staff being both helpful and incredibly patient with all our enquiries. They also offered very useful advice and signposting for additional hints and information on planning and installation.
The prices for the kitchen worked out at about the middle price range of typical ‘high street’ suppliers, but with far better quality of product and greater flexibility.
If you are a moderately competent DIYer of know a competent kitchen installer, I would highly recommend DIY kitchens.
My only specific word of advice: you do need to do your own measuring and planning, currently there is no online CAD / Drawing / planning service available. If you are unsure how to do this, then ask someone who is capable of doing this for you. DIY kitchens do not offer this service.
However, even if you need a little help with DIY Kitchens you can achieve the quality kitchen of your dreams at an affordable price.'
Steve from Leeds 'Fantastic quality - much better than the competition - and Excellent value for money. Well made carcasses and not flimsy. Superb finish quality to the doors and a really wide range of styles and finishes. Bespoke kitchen at off the peg price. Thanks.'
Ben & Emma from Birmingham 'Here are some photos of our kitchen. We extended our kitchen, so had a complete remodel and 11 months in we are still delighted with it! The transformation from our old kitchen is huge. I have attached a few before photos with the brown doors.
Door quality is excellent, we love the tall pullout larder as it makes use of our high ceilings without having loads of high units. Our builders were really impressed with the carcass quality and how easy it was to put in. We heard about DIY kitchens from a friend and have since recommended you to a few people.'
Peter & Valerie from Kent 'We are over the moon with our new DIY kitchen. The dated kitchen in our new house was a depressing eye sore. We had received a couple of quotes from high-street kitchen retailers when we happened on DIY kitchen and started to build our dream kitchen online out of curiosity. The final quote was extremely competitive and based on the good reviews we decided to take the plunge.
The whole process from start to finish was a breeze. The lead-time to delivery was good and the delivery was on time. We were a bit nervous about the worktop installation, but this too was executed to perfection by DIY Kitchen vendor Natural Stone Surfaces. The quality of the units lived-up to expectations. We always get compliments on our new kitchen and happily recommend DIY kitchen to our friends. Thank you for the excellent experience and quality kitchen!'
Bernie & Hil from Derbyshire 'After nearly 12 months with our new kitchen we’re really pleased. The units have good quality fittings and are well built. The service we received was excellent and the process for having the worktop’s measured, delivered and fitted was painless.
We found DIY Kitchens from an online search for tall curved corner units; we were then fortunate to be able to visit the showroom, view the units and discuss some of the details with the staff.'
Rhys & Cassie from Crewe 'Here are the photographs of our Shaker Kitchen from DIY Kitchens.
We absolutely love the shaker kitchen from DIY kitchens. The dark green lower units complimented by the white upper units helps add a feeling of height to the room, and the shaker style suits our 1930s home perfectly. We chose oak worktops to help add to the traditional theme of the room, and felt it worked well with the Belfast sink and brass hardware.
We heard about DIY kitchens from a close friend who showed us her kitchen, and we were very impressed by the quality and price.'
Jim from Chesterfield 'Here are a few photos of my completed kitchen. The quality is second to none and I am really impressed with the service I received, I have recommended you to a friend and will have no hesitation to doing so in the future.
I found DIY Kitchens on the internet by searching for Kitchens that I could install myself and the units were already constructed and the name speaks for itself. '
Harry from Durham 'Here are some pictures of my kitchen which you will no doubt recognise as being very similar to one of your showroom kitchens. It was perfect to see the style and design that we felt suited our situation in your showroom and so we adapted it for our use. Hope you like the pictures as much as we love our kitchen. The quality of the cabinets and doors is very good; we are very impressed. '
Alex & Tim from Leicestershire 'We love our new kitchen. When we first moved into our cottage many years ago, my kitchen budget was eaten up with structural issues we weren't prepared for and so we made do.
The quality of DIY Kitchens is far superior to anything we have had before but they are still affordable. I spent ages planning and re-planning to try and fit something special into our very small kitchen space and the DIY Kitchens planner really helped me to visualise each change as I played with different styles and layouts.
Cabinets come already assembled with doors and are very solid and well made. The range of colours, finishes and styles was amazing and the range of sizes for base and wall cabinets allows for all styles, spaces and designs. We ended up with the Norton painted, using Cobham Blue base units and White wall units to keep the space as light as possible. Easy to fit, with good quality hangers for wall units which made positioning them fairly easy, as we fitted the kitchen ourselves during lockdown. '
Chris & Juliana from Wiltshire '
Our DIY Kitchen in our new Self Build home. We are delighted with our kitchen - and in fact with our entire house. In fact our utility room is also fitted with more Luca units in Cornflower Blue
This is the third DIY Kitchens kitchen we have fitted and we are very happy with the wide range of units, the overall quality and the fact they are ready assembled. Pre- sales were really great and flexible and delivery was excellent. Sadly there were a few damaged doors that took a while to get replaced but now they are fine. We have the worktops from a local supplier to match all the window cills.
We designed the entire kitchen in from the very start of the design process and the slot window above the sink was a key design element. The stepped units above it were a great innovation and together with the colour contrast of Chobam and Cornflower really frame the window and allow the worktop to flow seamlessly into the window. On the other side of the kitchen. Even though the run of units have a flat front, they have two different depths to allow extra space into the cloakroom behind, while the tambours are full depth and allow small kitchen appliances to be hidden away and not spoil the clean lines of the open plan space. In line with the self build ethos, we designed and fitted the kitchen ourselves. '
John from Norfolk 'Great value for money, easy to install as ready built, easy to adjust, delivery on time, best quality compared to like competitors.'
Hannah fom Leeds 'Really impressed with the quality our kitchen from DIY kitchens, easy to install as we fit it all ourselves. Absolutely love it and we get so many compliments. Would definitely recommend!'
Hari from Surrey 'Please find attached the pictures to my kitchen from DIY Kitchens.'
Sarah from East Yorkshire 'Here are some photos of my almost completed Stanbury bespoke kitchen. The quality is excellent and I love the oak carcass, which goes great with my chosen colour. Service was absolutely spot on throughout the stressful process!!'
Andy from Devon 'We love the kitchen, the quality is great and having the units pre-assembled made the installation so much quicker. We heard about DIY Kitchens from a friend who recommended you.'
Sarah from Manchester 'I am so pleased with the quality and look of the kitchen. Easy to install as said by my kitchen fitters who had never worked with DIY kitchen but was suitably impressed when compared to Wickes and B&Q.'
Holly from Cheshire 'We love our Clayton kitchen and utility; the quality of the units is amazing and it was easy to install ourselves. I had lots of fun designing it myself too. I first heard about DIY Kitchens on Instagram.'
Gail from Cornwall 'Our new home after spending 7 years living on a boat then in a 5th wheel van is a static park home which needed complete refurbishment. Selecting a kitchen during a Covid pandemic lockdown was initially frustrating but then on finding the DIY Kitchens website via a web search, which is designed to choose and purchase on-line made the process enjoyable. The choice of unit sizes, types and door finishes and being able to mix and match made the DIY kitchen purchase much easier. Using the "save your basket" function numerous times I was able to tweak my choices until I reached my final decision without having to start over each time I changed my mind about door choices or unit styles.
Although my new kitchen area is much bigger than I was used to in a galley or caravan, it is still a small space and I wanted to utilise as much as possible. We chose to locate our washing machine in the bathroom, a top loader, to give us more cupboard space and opted for cream coloured wall units with darker base units for a contemporary look while not making the space look too crowded.
My partner was going to be fitting the kitchen units and worktops himself so the fact the cupboards came pre-built with the feet, doors/drawers on made this even easier. We were more than impressed with the quality of the built units. In fact the whole process; ordering of sample doors (and being able to return them), the support and advice from the customer services team, the professionalism of the delivery drivers and the after delivery care was impressive.
I have been recommending DIY-Kitchens to anyone who mentions replacing their kitchen.'
Ben & Hannah from Hersham '
I am a professional interiors photographer so was always excited to get some photos of our new finished kitchen. We ordered it at the end of 2020 and had it installed just before Christmas. We are just approaching a year with our lovely new kitchen. It was a relatively simple affair being a galley kitchen, but needed a lot of planning out to make the most of the space available and to work effectively with the structural work.
From beginning to end of planning and ordering to now living with our kitchen, we have both been very happy with the process. Using the online 3D planner was good fun and felt rewarding as it slowly took shape. As we were able to log in to consider the design and layout whenever we wanted we were able to make as many changes and modifications as we wanted. This meant that as our ideas evolved the design could adapt to suit.
I had been recommended DIY Kitchens by our builder and kitchen fitter Jamie at NorthSouthBuilders in Cobham. I trusted his judgement as he came highly recommended and I am very pleased that we did. The kitchen that arrived was solidly built and in perfect condition (except for missing one large item, but this was quickly rectified and in the long run saved us trouble having to store it while the builders finished the structural work!).
The doors are a smooth finish that clean easily. The drawers all soft close flawlessly and I’m very pleased that we went with 1m wide drawers where we could - we’ve got everything in them! I would recommend going with the wood effect cabinet internals, it looks great. Worktops were sourced elsewhere but went on just fine. Door handles are just what we wanted and good quality considering the price. Overall, very impressed with the kitchen and the whole process.'
David & Laura from Cambridgeshire 'We love everything about the kitchen and think it looks stunning. The units are sturdy and arriving already assembled made fitting them a breeze for our installer. The worktops look fantastic. In fact, we loved it so much we ordered more units in the same range to fit out the utility room.
We heard about diy-kitchens on an internet forum when reading about other people's experiences using Wren kitchens, thought we'd take a look at your website and the rest is history! I've included some before shots although it was part of some major remodelling work so it's hard to compare but they are worlds apart! I've also included a shot of our new puppy, Molly, who also loves the kitchen.'
Ben from Porthcawl 'Heard about DIY Kitchens through Google and recommended through a friend. Really pleased with Kitchen quality and service provided by DIY Kitchens.'
Ffion & Tom from Stroud 'We are over the moon with our kitchen. This is our second home renovation and the quality of this kitchen is beyond what we’ve found elsewhere and at such a reasonable price.
The carcasses are strong and the doors are very sturdy and so easy to adjust. We built our kitchen ourselves in 2 days, as it comes ready built it makes the whole process so much quicker and easier!
We cannot rate it highly enough! If you’re looking for a kitchen DIY Kitchens is the place to go. '
Mark from Leatherhead 'We are very impressed with the quality of the Kitchen. It is excellent value and compares very favourably with the other suppliers we considered (Wickes, Howdens, Benchmark, Magnet, Wren, Ikea). When comparing costs with flat-pack suppliers, the assembly costs from the installers must be added. Pre-assembled cabinets were very popular with our builders.'
Kathryn from Chester 'I am so pleased with my kitchen from DIY kitchens. I was able to get real oak doors at an affordable price and I love the colour (there were so many to choose from).
The units are so sturdy and the fact they came preassembled was just amazing. My husband and I actually installed it ourselves which saved us a fortune, though because they are so well made and preassembled, having a carpenter fit the kitchen wouldn't have actually been that expensive I don't think.
I loved the way you could put your design together yourself and have exactly what you want from layout to the insides of the cupboards, shelves etc and the transparency of pricing really helped in deciding which units were best. I recommend DIY kitchens to everyone and would love to do another one!'
Kevin from Kent 'We are very pleased with our kitchen which was installed in March/April of this year. The quality and finish of the units are excellent and the support service was equally impressive.
I discovered DIY Kitchens in 2018 when WHICH? rated the company as number 1 for DIY kitchens.'
Agnieszka from Birmingham 'Great quality for the price we paid. I was getting quotes double the amount from other kitchen providers. Design tool was easy to use and there was plenty of tips/videos on the website. Also love the colour. We had lots of compliments from friends and family. I would definitely recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone. '
Mr & Mrs Scott from Mansfield 'We love our kitchen The quality is excellent and although the idea of planning and ordering the kitchen ourselves seemed daunting it was quite simple and the customer service team were a great help. The kitchen delivery service is also great and guys were very professional and cheery. After sales team were fantastic and cannot fault the company one bit.'
Jo & Mark from Worksop 'We have had our kitchen fitted for almost a year now. DIY Kitchens was recommended to us by a builder who quoted for our extension. We visited the showroom and immediately knew that this is where we wanted to purchase our kitchen from. We actually used a different builder who had never heard of DIY Kitchens and he did his best to put us on to another kitchen company, as he felt that the word "DIY" suggested cheap. It really doesn't.
We were involved in every part of planning, re-planning, designing, re designing, choosing, re-choosing. We looked at two or three of the the other showrooms that the builder signposted us to and one of the designers at a more high end one of them was quite clear....she said "if you have already had a quote from DIY kitchens then I can match the quality but not the quote".
Our kitchen has been designed around our life and our preferences. We didn't have to compromise on quality because the prices are already competitive. We didn't want to be talked out of putting our sink in the island or having curves near the double doors. This is our kitchen, our way.
The photos were taken this week (just over a year since delivery) and the kitchen still looks fabulous. The quality is excellent. The little paint pots that come with delivery and are from the same batch as the units are a great little extra especially for busy families with lots of little hands and feet!
All of our guests ask "where did you purchase the kitchen from?" Thank you DIY Kitchens. Our new space has made such a difference to our lives!'
Nykkie from Croston 'The kitchen is extremely good quality for a mid-range kitchen and the service was exceptional, any issues (which were minor) were resolved.
We had a bespoke colour that was spot on - a stunning olive green - as I wanted a Meditteranean vibe that brought the garden inside. I loved having complete control of my design and transparent pricing. I found DIY Kitchens on Google and researched them thoroughly. We visited competitors - Wren, Howdens, Bench, B&Q, Ikea and Wickes - and DIY came out top for price, value and quality. I am member of a number of interior forums and have highly recommended your product and service. '
Jackie from Dorset 'We fitted it in January this year and we are delighted with it. We chose the colour scheme to match our beautiful dresser. I particularly love the peninsula We get many compliments!'
Charlotte from Bedfordshire 'I have been so impressed by our DIY kitchen, the overall quality was a real treat. It’s always a worry making a large purchase online when you haven’t been able to feel or see the quality of something before hitting the order button, but I hadn’t heard any bad reviews so decided to go for it and I certainly wasn’t disappointed!
I have been absolutely blown away with how great the customer service is, such in depth help when ordering to make sure everything is correct. The whole process from design to delivery has been second to none and I have recommended DIY-Kitchens to everyone I know. '
Tristan from Poole 'I heard about DIY kitchens because I've used them before. I especially like that the units come pre built so it's very easy to install, there were a few minor issues which were delt with quickly and professionally even under the constraints placed on DIY kitchens from the covid 19 pandemic.'
Emma from Hampshire 'Here are some photos of our recently installed DIY kitchen. I have also attached a few 'before' pictures at different stages.
I love the paint colour and contrast with the brass handles. It delivers everything I need in a kitchen. The quality is great, it's easy to clean and it's all perfectly functional.
I heard about DIY kitchens through a friend who loved her DIY kitchen. I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I do using the kitchen itself. '
Genie from West Yorkshire 'I absolutely love my DIY kitchen. I work with joiners who make bespoke kitchens, but after my research and visiting the showroom I was blown away by the choice and quality available. After seeing what I could choose I knew I didn’t need the additional expense and wait time for a bespoke kitchen.
I was able to order shorter depth base units to make my dining area more spacious, I absolutely love and recommend for small areas. I was able to make use of every single bit of space, using the narrow 150mm cupboards for storage of chopping boards, oils and spices. The ordering was easy and everything arrived so well packaged without a single fault.
The joiners who installed the kitchen were amazed by how easy it was to fit. I ordered the Carrara Marble worktop with square edges, and everybody thinks it is real marble! Truly beautiful! Thankyou DIY kitchens.'
Katrina from London 'I used DIY kitchens for a private new build in 2001 and came back again using your design tool. Brilliant! Love the designs, colour options, quality, ease of planning it myself and the fact it comes fully assembled. Recommended highly and left reviews online. '
Mark from Amble 'The kitchen units are great quality and have an authentic shaker look. They work really well in this restored coal merchant’s house by the sea. We have used DIY Kitchens on other projects and will definitely use them again.'
Josie from Lancashire 'I've long since wanted to change my kitchen but didnt think I could afford to. I didnt want to get a kitchen on finance, so just kept looking & saving, looking at the usual suppliers, looking at used kitchens ,and trawled the internet. I started to buy little things to put aside that I knew would match my kitchen that I had in my mind but just hadnt found yet..pale pastels, a little bit of seaside.
One day I came across DIY-K & I knew Id found what I wanted at a price I could afford. As an ICU nurse Id never worked so hard & I bought a little bit of holiday into the house. I'd got a plan from a local company that I used as a guide to what I needed to order but I changed a few things. I was nervous about getting a tape measure out and calculating what I needed but we more or less used the same footprint so it was very easy. I made a few mistakes but nothing that a couple of extra orders that came quickly couldnt sort out. I had to get each stage done like plastering & the electrics by sourcing contractors but it meant we had time after each step to clean up and prep for the installation so it was a nice clean thorough process and we were able to check the quality as we went along.
My neighbour joiner was impressed with my efforts and the quality of the units. Everyone loves my bespoke colour...its all just what I wanted...thank you for giving me alot to smile about...Ive realised the look I wanted. I had already bought my handles, sink, tap and worktop from other on line sites when I'd seen them in sales etc over the last few years in anticipation of one day getting a kitchen of my choosing, so already had those but DIY-K appear to have those styles anyway. It won't be the sleek modern look that some people like but you cater for all styles. Hope you like it.'
Paulina from Bristol 'Great quality, lovely colours, fits well with the rest of the house. Our builder recommended you.'
Ashleigh from Cornwall 'Excellent quality cupboards and doors, better that we had expected! We also made an error on ordering and they where so helpful with everything! Very pleased and would definitely recommend. Found DIY Kitchens online, after having a quote for more than double the price from elsewhere.'
Peter from Hampshire 'The kitchen is absolutely stunning! The quality of the units are fantastic with our fitters giving them high praise. They were very easy to install and the quality of the finish is as good if not better than other premium brands. The quartz worktop is utterly amazing with the fitting spot on and the finish better than what we could have hoped for giving such a high end spec.
The finished kitchen was well worth the effort put in to design it and we are now finding we are spending so much more time in the kitchen as we just want to be in there more because it's so nice. The customer service has been excellent with prompt responses to all questions and the willingness to help.
We heard about DIY Kitchens through a friend at work who recommended them after they had used them for their kitchen. We already have and will continue to recommend DIY Kitchens to everyone else we know. '
Stuart from West Midlands 'Here are some images of the kitchen we have just completed. Stanbury Dakar style. Many thanks, Stuart - Elite Property Renovations'
Ross from Cambridgeshire 'Just a note to thank you for being brilliant! Finished our new pantry a few months ago and we are very pleased with it - I thought you might appreciate a few photos. The online ordering system is great, the quality of the units is fantastic and it all worked out according to plan!'
Peter from Lincs 'My kitchen was fitted by myself in December 2020. Really pleased with the quality and looks perfect. Would recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Thomas & Beryl from North Wales 'Fitted the kitchen myself (Not the work surfaces) and thrilled with the finished result. Glad we found you.'
Ray & Cheryl from Bedfordshire 'Thank you for supplying us with a wonderful kitchen. Here are a selection of photographs of our kitchen for use on your website. Overall impression, great quality, Great look, fantastic finish and great customer experience. We heard about DIY kitchens through our builder.'
Steve & Jill from West Yorkshire 'Here are photos of our recently fitted kitchen brought from yourselves. We don't have a pet to photo, but we do have a very cuddly and enthusiastic monkey named suarez. He wanted to be on one of the photos!
Ours is only a small and compact kitchen, but we love its new look and style, and the quality of the doors, units and worktops is excellent.
We were recommended by a friend who had also bought their kitchen from you. Your service was superb. We loved your showroom facility and advice given, and we loved the final cost. We saved several hundred pounds, which we otherwise put into good quality appliances and fittings.'
Sarah from Tadcaster 'I was very apprehensive to purchase a kitchen online but wouldn’t hesitate to do it again as the service at all points of the process was fantastic, very helpful and clear. And the best part is you save a fortune! I would and have happily recommended DIY kitchens to family friends.'
Georgina from Essex 'Here is our real customer kitchen. We are over the moon with our DIY Kitchens kitchen. We get so many compliments and love the flexibility of the cupboard range. The old pictures are the old kitchen but we've actually room swapped. The lounge photo is the kitchen now.'
Amanda from Preston 'Here are some of our photos from our kitchen we got from yourselves along with some before and during work photos.'
Darren from London 'Really great quality with solid wooden doors and absolutely amazing for the price. We especially love the big double-doored larder cupboard, and the wide Belfast sink. We got the kitchen for a newly built extension and it really makes the space stand out. Customer service was also super for getting new handles and replacing an item damaged in transport.'
Andrea from Chinley 'I’ve had several kitchens from DIY Kitchens since they were recommended to me by a client. They are always delivered on time and in good order. Love the fact they are fully assembled. Colour choice is great.'
Lisa from Hampshire 'We were really impressed with both the quality of kitchens units but also the choice of units available. We were able to create a really functional kitchen that made the most of the dimensions of the room. We have recommended DIY Kitchens to friends because of this. DIY Kitchens we’re recommended to us by our Kitchen fitter and here are some pictures before as well (we knocked the wall down between our kitchen and dining room).'
Emma & Dirk from Somerset 'We absolutely love it and are always asked where it is from. We also got our handles knobs and latches from a different supplier, for a really bespoke look.'
Kaye from Trawden 'The kitchen is beautiful. Really high quality and durable. Customer service was first class and delivery very efficient. Have highly recommended you ever since I received it. £1500 less than same spec Howdens kitchen.'
Jacob from Dartford 'Decided to go with DIY Kitchens for our first kitchen in our first house. I must say with no previous experience of designing a kitchen, that the Diy kitchens website was a knowledge powerhouse, with answers to any doubt we had.
Delivery turned up on time and there was no bits missing/back order from the items we ordered. The quality of the cabinets and the worktop were excellent and up to par or even better than the premium alternatives sold for 3 times the price of high street kitchen retailers. Even the carpenter who put together the kitchen for us commented positively on the quality of the rigidity of the cabinets.
All in all I would say if you want something bespoke and unique and have the time to deisgn one yourself, you should definitely invest on Diy kitchens for your future kitchen.'
Tracey & Jon from Leicestershire '
The online planner was by far the easiest of about 5 I tried and we took our time trying out different configurations. We got samples in the post but we also went to the showroom and made a weekend away of it. The kitchens were beautiful, solid and we'll finished. The hinges etc were great quality. What a fantastic showroom it is! We found staff very helpful, in person, online and by phone.
The fitters were very impressed with the quality of the units. They are very sturdy and the paint finish is beautiful. What a bonus that they arrive made up, with doors fitted too! We had a quartz work top via DIY kitchens and it really finishes the units off beautifully.
There's still some faffing to be done decor wise, but we cannot tell you just how much we really do love our kitchen. It's made such a big difference to us and we are planning on getting some units for our utility next....!
I did lots of research online about various kitchen companies and DIY Kitchens' name kept coming up - I kept reading about how great they were. They were consistently highly praised. Mumsnet contributors seemed very pro DIY Kitchens - and we all know mum knows best!'
Anne from Stirling 'We have been absolutely delighted with the whole process from choosing, designing and ordering our kitchen.
The quality has been superb, especially with the pre-built, solid cabinets. And the wide variety of cabinet sizes allowed us to design the kitchen exactly to our needs.
My son had bought his kitchen from you a few years ago and was very impressed and so that is the main reason we decided to use you also.
My son also fully fitted our kitchen including the worktop and tiling and the process of delivery was excellent.'
Fahad & Husna from Leeds 'Here are some pictures of our kitchen, which was installed late last year. We absolutely love it.
We are incredibly happy with the quality of our kitchen. The units are of a very high standard and we have recommended DIY Kitchens to family and friends since we have had ours delivered and installed. A work colleague recommended DIY Kitchens to us.'
Christopher from Dorset 'Here are some before and after pics of my kitchen we purchased from you.'
Clair & Darren from Anglesey 'Just wanted to share some pictures with you of our new Malton white kitchen that we had from you earlier this year!
We are so happy with it, it’s really brightened up the room especially as it has no outside windows. The units are so well made and using the online planner was fantastic! Customer service was also amazing! Thank you very much. '
Elaine from Essex 'I would like to thank you all for supplying my stunning new kitchen. To say I’m pleased is an understatement. Thank you.'
Julie from Flintshire 'Here are some pictures of my finished kitchen and utility room - I delighted with both!
I heard about DIY kitchens from a 25 Beautiful Homes magazine. I visited your showroom, 3 times in all but it was worth the 5 hour round trip each time. Your staff were so helpful - thank you.
I was impressed with the range of styles, types and sizes of units on offer and the colours available. I finally selected the Linwood in Dove Grey and the mid grey (can’t remember the name sorry). The best bit was the price difference; I saved thousands by going with DIY Kitchens.
My kitchen arrived when scheduled, after the initial postponement due to the first lockdown and the after sales team were brilliant at sorting out anything that was wrong or missing. My kitchen fitter was also very impressed with the quality and how it all came together - much better than Howdens and Wren in his opinion.
I have recommended you to all my friends and family and anyone else who mentions that they’re looking for a new kitchen!
As you can probably tell, I’m chuffed with my kitchen and utility room. They’ve been the best bits of a complete renovation project and caused me the least amount of hassle or stress!
A huge thank you to all of the team. '
Angie & Chris from Pontypridd 'A great quality kitchen, so easy with the majority of it coming pre-assembled, totally customisable to your own design and very reasonably priced. We get so many comments on the kitchen, it's our favourite room in the whole house. We have recommended you to others and at least two others have ordered from you once seeing ours.
We heared about DIY Kitchens from a friend of mine who ordered one of your kitchens, she was very impressed, as were we when we saw it.
Here is a picture of Rosie and Lottie. Lottie waits patiently, to see if Rosie leaves any of her dinner for her 😊'
Angie from Wolverhampton 'I would highly recommend DIY kitchens and I happened to come across your website by chance. The kitchen was delivered when promised. Communication from the start was excellent. They were packaged well with no damage. The quality is fantastic and on par with some of the more expensive kitchens out there but at a fraction of the cost. So yes, I’m super pleased and wouldn’t hesitate to buy from you again.'
Gemma form York 'So impressed with our kitchen. The quality is fantastic and the price even better. We will absolutely be recommending to anyone and everyone who wants to hear. Fabulous customer service too.'
Ashley from Birmingham 'A friend recommended DIY kitchens really pleased with quality of doors love it.'
Alia & Ben from Welling 'We were initially going to order Wren kitchen but found the design process very frustrating. Howdens was too expensive. We discovered DIY kitchens through Google. Sadly we never had a chance to visit the showroom due to Covid.
We had our new kitchen installed last year. Very happy with the quality, colour selection and timeless shaker style. The doors not only look but feel solid too. 10/10
We also went with quartz worktop from your partner Natural Stone Surfaces and we couldn't be happier. Beautiful marble effect quartz. Our open plan kitchen has completely transformed our lifestyle - we love it!
Sadly we had some frustrations with our order process due to Covid but I cannot fault the quality. Overall very happy with the result and would most certainly recommend DIY kitchens to friends. '
Antonia from Yorkshire 'Absolutely love the kitchen. The units are sturdy and hard wearing. Love the worktop which is ghost white. Fantastic to make bread on. I cannot fault the service and after sales. My fitter says they are a quality kitchen and he’s fitted loads of different ones. Saves so much time that they arrive ready assembled.
Have recommended DIY Kitchens to loads of people and had a recent trip to the showroom with my friend who was very impressed. I heard about diy kitchens when goggling for a new kitchen for our new extension.'
Paula & John from St. Helens 'Here are some photos of our kitchen, which I would be delighted to have on your site especially as my husband did it all on his own except the worktops during lockdown.
We were absolutely delighted with it and the service from DIY kitchen was second to none during the lockdown. The delivery lads were excellent, they kept us informed of the eta. The contact centre, even when we had a problem with the colour difference on our wall units, sent out a technician and replaced the doors without question. We would 100% recommend DIY Kitchens.'
Charlotte from Altrincham 'We had a fantastic experience with DIY Kitchens and were able to use their expert guidance and professional services, to allow us to fit our own kitchen.
From the showroom viewing, which they handled expertly through the pandemic, to help with the design on a virtual planner, the planning process was made seamless and we really felt we were able to design our dream kitchen.
The delivery time frame was excellent and the delivery team were incredibly helpful, bringing all the units, assembled and with doors attached, right into the room for us.
The help and advice videos available on their website and social media platforms made it a simple process to learn how to fit our own kitchen, despite having no experience of this before.
The overall communication from the whole team was excellent and it felt like they were as invested in our new kitchen as we were! We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.'
Trevor from Barnsley 'I designed my kitchen using the DIY Kitchens app and fitting it myself aa Covid made a fitter hard to find. We are more than very pleased with our Kitchen. No building them up as they came already built, so the job was straight forward.
The units are very well made in the good old fashioned way with none of these stupid metal fittings and connectors you find on many of the "buy off the shelf" units and they are as solid as you can get. The worktop is brilliant and was worth the extra money for the granite and the fitters were brilliant too. It is everything we wanted and more.
We chose up and over wall cupboard doors which are brilliant. No more walking into open doors when stacking cupboards. We chose to have all drawers in the units. No more have to clamber to back of cupboards to get items that get pushed to the back. As we are elderly, these choices have made life more of a luxury than a chore. The curved cupboards set it off a treat and even though we opted for diagonal angles on corner base units they look good so mix and match.
The sink sits nicely within the worktop as I chose a Belfast sink. The tall cupboard fills a dead space on a brick built stone, which houses the meter and stuck out in the kitchen/dining area. What more can I say. The back up was good also when I did have a problem.
When trying to buy a kitchen in March 2020, just as Covid came in I decided to try Local. Tried e-mailing several local Kitchen showrooms and actually got 0% replies even e-mails which business people would or should answer from home. I then went on internet and spotted DIY Kitchens and mailed them getting a response almost immediately. For me it ended up good, as I realised they were local to me and when lockdown lifted I organised a showroom visit (July by appointment). Unfortunately with the restrictions the staff could not help as they would have liked but they did help as much as they could.
The only problem was choosing, as their showroom range was vast and actually everything you wanted was there to see. I have mention the DIY Kitchens to everybody. Price is on a par with Ikea but not flat packed, which is worth about a weeks worth of time and effort and delivered to your home, so no organising transport etc and the back up is very good. Felt like a real customer and not just another sale in the till. '
Robert from Surrey 'We are very pleased with the quality of the doors and units, also the paint colour and finish. They work well in practice particularly the soft close doors and drawers.
We had very good message support throughout and particularly from Jake in the early stages. Delivery was on time, carefully handled, and with no damage or missing items. We heard about DIY Kitchens from our builder who had previously installed them and recommended them.'
Katie from Southampton 'Here is my finished Stanbury white painted kitchen. I’m thrilled with it. '
Ottilie & Myles from Shropshire 'We just wanted to send some pictures in of our kitchen now it is finally finished! We've included 2 of before, and a few during and after.
We were first time buyers, so we’d come to accept that we wouldn’t get our dream kitchen because all the high street companies were quoting £9000+ for what we wanted. When we found DIY Kitchens we were over the moon. The guys at the showroom were extremely helpful and gave us some great ideas, like glass-sided drawers and magic pull out corner units.
We are so impressed with the quality and finish of the units. We loved that DIY kitchens offered a different carcass colour to door colour as standard. We chose the oak effect and this makes the kitchen look very premium when you open the drawers/cupboards. We also love how the kitchen comes prebuilt (which saves loads of time and money) and is very sturdy in comparison to other brands.
Overall, we can't recommend DIY Kitchens enough, the little details make the kitchen feel far more premium than the price tag - we really do have our dream kitchen.'
Debbie from Bingley 'Love the kitchen, joiners enjoyed fitting it. This was a new extension and redesign. We are thrilled with the end product.'
Troy from Pembrokeshire 'Here are some photos of our kitchen. The kitchen was installed by myself in Pembrokeshire (worktops were sourced elsewhere).'
Lee from Yorkshire 'Here are some pictures of my recent DIY Kitchens transformation.'
Anna from Yorkshire 'Couldn’t be happier! Just had to send you our pictures and say how absolutely thrilled we are
with our DIY kitchen!. We planned and installed ourselves and I think you will agree looks amazing!!!!!!
We couldn't have dream't of a kitchen like this - a local company quoted us 28k for the same design!!!!! Plus an extra 5k fitting. Yours was for approx 6.5k and the quality is far superior!
You wouldn't believe the before pictures! We had an old 1950s kitchen that we just kept repainting as we thought the cost for a new one was beyond our budget! '
Becky from Chester 'I just wanted to show you our finished kitchen supplied by yourselves! We are over the moon with it.'
Carrie from Surrey 'We are so thrilled with the end result. The quality of the kitchen is phenomenal and we were able to achieve exactly what we needed thanks to the flexibility with the range, paint colours and just all the wonderful but so important details you offered. Blossom our Australian Labradoodle loves it more, as she’s gave birth in the new kitchen'
Kelly from Northallerton 'Here are some pictures of our DIY kitchen. We have recommended your company many times and know of at least 3 people who have ordered as a result of seeing the quality of our kitchen. We ordered the shaker in cashmere and graphite for the island.'
Michael from Liverpool 'This is our perfect kitchen. The fitter we got let us down, so the wife & I, did it ourselves!'
Lizz from Newark 'After to the pictures I sent below! They were taken in winter so I might try to take some summer ones but that relies on me cleaning my kitchen.'
Abi from Manchester 'Easy to order and fit, good quality, good price and good customer service. I found DIY kitchens on a web forum while looking for a quality well priced kitchen.'
Rosielee from Leeds 'Couldn’t be happier with my new kitchen everything is perfect, my auntie ordered a kitchen and recommended you so I ended up ordering one too! Thank you very much.'
Kelly from Yorkshire 'Thank you for my kitchen. We are extremely happy with it. Here’s some pictures of before.'
Sharon from Hants 'I thought you might like to see the finished kitchen. We love it and would highly recommended your company. The product is well priced and well made. Your after sales service was exemplary.'
Martin & Marianne from Hertfordshire 'We are really pleased with our new kitchen. We had Clayton in dakar for the base units and Clayton in mussel for the wall cupboards with dakar end panels and pelmet and cornice. The pelmet and cornice were from the Carrera range which has the same finish as Clayton. This was something we learned on a trip to the showroom - well worth the 2 hour drive. The delivery arrived on time but there were quite a few issues with missing bits, mainly on the special order units. These were eventually sorted out but our fitter had to come back to finish off once everything had arrived. A few months on the kitchen looks amazing and has been much admired by everyone who has seen it.'
Wendy from Kent 'I'm absolutely blown away by the quality of this kitchen. Your customer service is brilliant too. The planner was so easy to use and everything fitted perfectly. The kitchen arrived on time and with no problems whatsoever. I've recommended you to friends and family, who will definitely be placing an order too.'
Tulsi & Amit from Hertfordshire 'We are completely in love with our kitchen! The overall look is exactly what we envisioned and this was only possible by having the independence to design and customise the kitchen ourselves. The quality of the doors is incredible, it's not easy to find veneered doors in a lot of kitchen showrooms at a price like that, most places only tend to have a vinyl finish.
My husband (Amit) found DIY kitchens online and after reading the impressive reviews, seeing the competitive prices, as well as discovering the huge range DIY kitchens had to offer, we were sold!'
Aimee From Evesham 'Excellent quality of cabinets, doors and handles. Wide range of cabinets and drawer options that suited our needs as a family with the space available- especially the huge 1 metre larder cupboard that houses everything!
Love the soft close drawer and door features alongside the added height to the side of the larger pan drawers
Easy to install and delivery with numbered boxes made it all the more simpler. Would highly recommend to others as we were recommended by someone too.'
Abbie from Manningtree 'What can I say about my DIY kitchen... Wow, just wow. I absolutely love it! Superb quality, the tongue and groove ends and the grain finish make it look like an incredibly high end kitchen. Attached are a few snaps, including a homemade breakfast of champions, and a before picture. '
Emmanuel and Andrea from Maidenhead 'The kitchen was for a new extension on a house that previously had a very small kitchen (which is now the utility room!). Before ordering the kitchen, I considered a few main kitchen firms until I considered DIY kitchens, after recommendations by friends. We followed up by a visit to their showroom in Yorkshire, we were sold!
The planning tool was really user-friendly and enabled me to keep revising the plan to fit in as much storage and as many useful layout features as possible, with a finish I was happy with and within budget. It gives you freedom to modify the kitchen according to your taste and the 3D rendering was extremely useful to me. Planning was so easy, that we ended up ordering a few Cento Dakar cabinets for the utility room.
Ordering to delivery was fairly straight forward and DIY kitchen was always an email away to help sort out a few issues that we had (nothing major!). The joiner was impressed with the build quality, the doors feel sturdy and all of the specialist units work smoothly and feel very robust. According to our joiner, the magic corner is one of the sturdiest he has ever installed!
Overall, we could not be happier with the final result. Thank you DIY Kitchen!'
Mr & Mrs R from Lincolnshire 'Our kitchen has been installed for nearly a year now and we are still in love with it! We went for a Norton Dove Grey and Heron Grey kitchen and we are so pleased with the quality overall. We did have a few damaged units on arrival but the customer service was brilliant and every query we had was answered and dealt with efficiently. We have just ordered an extra unit to add a home beer pump, which will hopefully be a nice addition to our beautiful kitchen. We were recommended by a member of our family and pleased we were. Thank you very much! '
Deborah & Gearoid from Derby 'I thought i’d send some pics of our recently completed kitchen. We chose the Linwood kitchen in Dove Grey and Carbon and also used Natural stone surfaces for our ‘White Marble’ Quartz.
We love our new kitchen and are very happy with the quality and the service we received. '
Isabelle from Kent 'Really pleased with the quality and feel of both the cupboards and worktops. Ordering was quick and easy and staff always on hand to answer questions. '
Beccy from Northumberland 'Kitchen was for a new extension on a house that previously had a very small, dark kitchen. I had the units priced up by two major kitchen firms before a friend recommended DIY Kitchens for quality and value.
The planning tool was really user-friendly and enabled me to keep revising the plan to fit in as much storage and as many useful layout features as possible, with a finish I was happy with and within budget.
I found the real customer kitchen section of the website really useful in choosing style and colour, particularly as Dakar looks very different in different lights. The joiner was impressed with the build quality, the doors feel sturdy and all of the specialist units (the larder cassette units, bin, oil and spice pull-outs and the corner unit) work smoothly and feel very robust.
Important to say that though we really needed the joiner for the fiddly bits (the island and the larder unit), otherwise installation was straight-forward enough for us to undertake most of the fitting ourselves, which undoubtedly saved us money. Really happy with the final result: the kitchen is a pure joy to be in. '
Peter from Weymouth 'Please find attached 3 photos of the kitchen you supplied. My impression of the kitchen are that it is very high quality, the doors and soft close hinges are very good and my kitchen fitter was so impressed that he recommended you to another client.'
Georgina from Blackpool 'These are the images of my complete kitchen. From pictures before, during and after.
A kitchen does not have to be a big room in the largest house to be beautiful. I saved for four years and planned every detail of this kitchen down to the rose gold handles and rose gold cooker hood, plinth lights and copper switches. The tiled flooring, the mirrored radiator to reflect back the length and light of the spots. I hated my old one with a passion but I wanted my new one to be just perfect and it is! '
Allan from Brentwood 'I attach photos of my recently completed kitchen. Although ordered in July 2020, I was unable get my builder to start installation until April due to successive Covid-related delays. It was therefore in storage for almost six months after delivery. However, my wife and I are pleased with the end result!'
Mr & Mrs Ali from Leeds 'We have finished our kitchen and wanted to leave some feedback.
We are very happy with the finish on our kitchen. Looks very highend for a small price. We wanted to thank everyone from planning, delivery and the accounts team.
From start to finish you have comunicated well, Even after a small delay in delivery, you put everything right. Thank you DIY team.'
Nick from East Sussex 'Here are the kitchen pictures and BTW, we love the finished kitchen!'
Linda from Norfolk 'We are absolutely over the moon with our kitchen, it’s everything we wanted and more! I was worried about having a Belfast sink, whether it was practical and also would it give us backache! But it’s amazing! We didn’t choose to have grooves cut into the worktop and I’m so glad we didn’t, we drain anything we do wash up into the second half and, well, the dishwasher does everything else!
Our kitchen sat in the garage for 2 months as our fitter wasn’t ready, but everything was there and there was no damage. He was impressed with the quality of the units, as are we! We have already recommended DIY Kitchens to lots of people and we would definitely use you again!
I got inspiration for ideas from Instagram and it would be lovely to help others if our kitchen has elements they are looking for. '
Amy from Cheshire 'I love my kitchen. This is my second DIY kitchen (I moved house) and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Fantastic quality and excellent customer service. My parents bought their kitchen you DIY, so they came highly recommended!'
Reuben from Gloucestershire 'After going to the mainstream high street kitchen retailers and being disappointed by the price and quality, we were delighted to discover diy-kitchens. We made the long trip up to the showroom but it was totally worth it – this company is the real deal: massive choice of styles and sizes, and super high quality everything. They delivered on time and we fitted the kitchen ourselves having designed it on TapGlance. Doing it ourselves meant that we got pretty intimate with the quality and construction and I now recommend diy-kitchens to everyone I know. We have used it since for fitting out a utility room and garage. The kitchen in these pictures is now 5 years old and still look like new. And to think that a popular kitchen company beginning with ‘W’ said we would never fit an island in the space!!'
Angela from Widnes 'Here are some before and after pictures of our completed kitchen.
The Kitchen is excellent quality and was a great price. It turned our rental property from no interest, to potential tenants queuing at the door.
We run our own business and all our family have used DIY kitchens and our customers love the kitchen. '
Clare from Manchester 'I love the kitchen and the doors are beautiful, worktops are also stunning. Sturdy drawers and doors and super impressed with magic cupboard, wire cupboard sliding shelves and 4 section bin.
Our builder recommended diy kitchens. I was very nervous about designing my own kitchen buy your planner tool online was very useful, once i got the hang of it.'
Susan from Cambridge 'We have just almost completed a new build, large house and wanted to do most things ourselves to save money but also for the satisfaction of doing so.
The kitchen in our new build is much admired and we have inspired many others to use your company. They can’t comprehend why the quality is so amazing yet the price is unbelievable. People have said it looks like a £20,000 kitchen. Albeit my husband fitted it but even if we had used a professional fitter, I am sure the price would still be competitive.
You can see it is Linwood Oak. It was very easy to plan ourselves. Each door piece was so well wrapped and the plus is also that the carcass is already assembled. You just need a good space to store if you aren’t going to fit straight away. People were also surprised that the carcasses were not white inside and that the edges matched the doors.
Another tip is that we used shallow wall cupboards on the back of the island so that we can store mugs and glasses etc without having to climb to the back to reach them. We only had one problem! We ordered the canopy after we saw what we felt we needed and it was so heavy that we had to invent a lifting system with breeze blocks. ( I should say that we are both approaching 80, so not as strong as we used to be.) It is so solid and well made with no skimping on the wood.
I am delighted with all the drawers because they are so easy to access and they look good too. They are also easy to clean. I used to hate reaching into the back of cupboards
. The worktops are granite - Baltic brown. We have had granite before and there has never been any issues with it. We break all the rules, the best is that you can put hot things on it. Because it is a natural material it will shed a few bits but that is the beauty of it.
We are very happy with our kitchen. It ‘works’ very well and needs little maintenance.'
Simon & Maureen from Lincolnshire 'We purchased our kitchen in July 2020 and installed this ourself. All items were delivered on time by a very friendly team.
The kitchen and worktops are lovely and built to a high quality, we are very very pleased.'
Linda from Milton Keynes 'Really delighted with our DIY kitchen. Everything was easy to follow, well packaged and protected. The kitchen fitter was really impressed which is always good.'
Naomi & Chuck from Walthamstow 'We ordered a new kitchen that we fitted ourselves as a lockdown project. We have a tiny flat and a tiny kitchen so we didn't think it would make much difference but a friend recommended DIY kitchens, so that we could have the bespoke colour we wanted, and having revamped it has completely changed our lives; we actually spend time in there now. DIY kitchens matched the green doors for us and everyone who sees it comments on the colour. I'm delighted with it.'
Aaron from Essex 'I just wanted to share our before and after pictures of our kitchen. We are so happy with it! Even more so that we had to plan and design the kitchen dimensions and layout before the kitchen was even a room!
Due to lockdown there was a lot of phone calls and tickets between me and your team, who are fantastic by the way!, just so we could get it right. '
Joe from Lanarkshire 'Just completed the kitchen yesterday, looks good. Very pleased with the service from yourselves & the quality of the units.'
Martin from Herts 'Thought you may wish to see some photos of our completed kitchen. We absolutely love it! Top quality units and great service. Definitely recommended.'
Olga from London 'Thank you for an amazing kitchen and excellent service from start to finish. Here are some before and after photos. The kitchen is Norton Alabaster.'
Georgine from Bradford 'Amazing quality kitchen! I was extremely impressed with the price and the service. The design tool online is also incredible, so easy to use and the whole process of designing, to a showroom visit, and excellent customer service! Would 100% recommend!'
Melanie from York 'I love my new kitchen the quality is excellent and the transformation as you can see is for-nominal. This is my second DIY kitchen, I originally found there site while surfing the net. I loved it so much I recommended it to my brother and he bought one too!'
Mari from Essex 'Here are some phots of my mums' kitchen that I designed for her.
We heard about DIY kitchens through my Instagram renovating account. Lots of people I followed over last year had been using your product and we were impressed with the price point and quality of your units. '
Ashley from Hertfordshire 'Here is our carbon shaker style. We are moving house but we have loved our kitchen! High quality units and as they were delivered complete, the kitchen was easy to install. We’ll be needing a new kitchen in the new place & I know where I’ll be shopping!'
Diane from Durham 'Here are some pictures of our refurbished kitchen and some before pictures too.
Your cabinets are great quality and were so easy to work with. Great price point and the customer service was fab.'
Tony from Devon 'Love the kitchen, just what we were looking for. Great value for money. Highly recommended.'
Alice from Lincolnshire 'Just thought I would send you some pics for our finally finished kitchen. Kitchen and worktop are from you, Malton cashmere and carbon.
We love our DIY kitchen and are even recommending to my mum for her next kitchen. The quality is excellent and the worktop was also great quality with efficient and friendly fitting. The kids loved your showroom cakes!'
Alison from Cambs '
I have now completed my kitchen refurbishment and would like to thank all the team for their help and support over the last few weeks. I will definitely recommend DIY kitchens for the value and quality of the product to the excellent support during the ordering stage through to delivery and after.
I purchased the Stanbury Shaker design in Cobham Blue and Dove Grey, with all new wall units and some base units and doors to go on existing base units. With hindsight it would have been a better option cost wise to have just ordered the whole lot new, rather than the kitchen fitter having to drill the holes in the doors and match the hinges up.
From ordering to delivery it was an easy process I had one unit with a scratch on one door and it was replaced immediately no fuss. Kirsty and Beth were extremely helpful with a few queries I had and I now have a lovely up to date kitchen.'
Lauren from Cambridgeshire 'Here are some before pictures and after pictures of our kitchen. We ordered the Clayton cashmere kitchen and we absolutely love it! Thank you so much. It has totally transformed our kitchen.'
Lindsay from Yorkshire 'Well I am pleased to report the kitchen is all finished and we are delighted with the quality of the units. '
Stuart from Berkshire 'We have been really pleased with OUR DIY kitchen. We installed it just over 2 years ago and we are very impressed by the build quality.'
Dan from Northampton 'Completed kitchen install pictures of the Malton shaker kitchen in Cobham Blue & Dove Grey'
Robin from Buckinghamshire 'When we were looking for a replacement for our tired old kitchen, we considered all the "usual suspects" on the High Street and in the retail parks for turnkey solutions. We narrowed our search down on the basis of the quality of the units, the unit types available and the available ranges of styles and colours.
Then a work colleague of mine mentioned DIY Kitchens: he believes that the build quality is equal to any off-the-shelf supplier. We investigated and found that the wide range of styles and colours, plus the available unit types, made them perfect for us.
We were looking for a simple, classic style in a neutral colour. We needed something that wouldn't look outdated in 5 years: some current design trends look stunning, but they won't after a few years... The Shaker-style simplicity of the Linwood painted range, in Mussel, was the ideal solution.
Delivery was as scheduled and was carried out very well. We were impressed by the quality of the units. I don't think I've seen anything better in off-the-peg kitchens, and the fact that all the units arrived ready-assembled with pre-hung doors saved days of our fitter's time: the whole fit (without worktops) was completed in three days.
One particular issue was how to incorporate a powerful, full-width extractor over our 1100 mm range cooker; we didn't want a cumbersome full mantel and the standard topbox dimensions didn't fit. The wide range of filler panels and doors available in the DIY Kitchens range made it easy to design a custom extractor housing that our fitter could build in a morning, with the front panel made of two doors biscuit-jointed together that I could then fill and overspray. This turned out perfectly, as can be seen in our attached photos.'
Mr & Mrs Hawley from Wakefield 'After doing lots of research and visiting many different showrooms from bespoke cabinet makers to high street retailers, offering a broard range products and services in terms of quality and price, we chatted with a neighbour who had recently used DIY Kitchens for their refurbishment.
They recommended we visit the showroom to see what was on offer. Right away we were impressed with the choice of styles from modern to classic, the quality of the doors and cabinets, being far superior to those from well known high street retailers and on par with some bespoke designs we'd looked at. Also, the fact that the cabinets came fully assembled with the doors installed was an advantage.
We made a few visits to the showroom and took our time to finally decide on the style we wanted. The staff in the showroom were really helpful offering help and advice when creating our design. We loved the fact that we could use the online planner and we could change the style, layout, colour and cabinet choice until we were completely happy that we had the kitchen we'd always wanted.
Ordering was really easy, and we were confident that we'd included everything as the plan and order was checked by the customer service team before we placed the final order. We were also able to ask questions and make requests for bespoke pieces via the support ticket tool online. We placed the order and was given an approximate delivery date there and then.
Shortly after our kitchen arrived, unfortunately during lockdown, so we had to wait a while before our fitter could start the installation. We checked the order, the only hiccup was we'd ordered cup and pull handles and the cup handles were the wrong colour, but after raising a query the problem was sorted out quickly and efficiently, as special thank you goes to one of the cutomer service advisors who delivered the handles personally to save time.
The installation finally began and we were thrilled with the finished. The bespoke colour we chose for the island is beautiful. Our kitchen fitter, who installs for well known house builders was also very impressed with the quality and commented on how easy the kitchen was to install.
We were the third household in our cul-de-sac to install a DIY Kitchen and we would thoroughly recommend DIY Kitchens to all of our friends and family.'
Alison from Hampshire 'We are really pleased with the kitchen, especially the great accessible storage
I know when we were looking at the photos of actual kitchens, they were one of the most useful things to us as we couldn’t justify a trip to your showroom, without being pretty sure about things. Also, the ability to design using the app was the deal breaker, which made us choose you over a couple of other companies that we were considering.'
Emma from Yorkshire 'We recently bought a kitchen from you, Clayton cashmere & clayton dakar for the island with the Crema Venato worktop. I just thought we would send you some before and after pictures. We knocked a wall through, to make it all open plan.'
Charlotte From Yorkshire 'We absolutely love our kitchen & can’t recommend it enough! Here are some images for you of the kitchen, before and now! You can read more on their renovation here.'
Luke & Rebecca From Bristol 'We were blown away with the quality of the whole kitchen and worktops at what was a really competitive price.
The DIY kitchen team were extremely helpful and we have already recommended them to family and friends.
A carpenter friend waxed lyrical on the quality of the units. There are a number of photographs. You will note we extended the rear of our house and have included a few photos of the old 1970's kitchen. '
Annie From Yorkshire 'Here are images of the completed kitchen. Really love how it all came together!'
Craig from Hampshire 'Pictures of my kitchen, completed over multiple lockdowns. The kitchen is Linwood White with oak effect laminate worktops.'
Andy & Lesley From Leeds 'Very happy with the quality and build of your units. A real good range of styles and unit choice! Noticed that a lot of other companies had a limited range of both. '
Kat from Nottingham 'Kitchen finally finished, please see attached pics before and after. The DIY kitchens team were magnificent throughout the whole process. Thank you.'
Helen From Devon 'We are so happy with the quality of our kitchen from DIY kitchens; as well as it looking wonderful, the units are very sturdy and around £2,000 cheaper than comparable ones from other outlets. I love my kitchen! We heard about DIY kitchens through Money Saving Expert.
I especially love the pantry style cupboard shown in the picture - such a great storage idea! I’ve included a before picture as well, ours was a new build - during lockdown!'
Aimee & Matt From Birmingham 'I have attached images of our finished kitchen in Dove Grey & Cobham Blue.'
Claire From Bristol 'I was recommended DIY kitchens by a friend who had completed a large project to a really high standard, so I trusted their judgement completely.
Overall, I’m really pleased with the quality of the kitchen, everything is sturdy and completed to a nice finish. We had to remove a window to get the big cabinet in! But it was 100% worth the effort (even though I wish I’d checked the door measurements beforehand).
I chose a modern, clean look as we are planning on selling or letting the property, so we needed it to look good and appeal to lots of tastes. The space works so much better now with only a couple of small changes to the layout. '
