Christy & Jon from Birmingham "The quality of the kitchen is fantastic especially for the price. We are especially pleased with the worktops as they look amazing with the units. Very happy with our new kitchen and very easy to fit."

Becca from London "We absolutely love our new kitchen from DIY. Since having it installed we've hosted several dinner parties and all our guests have been amazed by the transformation.

The island makes it a really sociable space to entertain while cooking and the guides on the DIY kitchen website helped us make this work in the space. We were really impressed with the quality of all the components, from the carcasses to the doors and worktop. Our carpenter who has been installing kitchens for 3 decades said he's never seen better.

The customer service was very good with the delivery arriving complete and on time and the men taking good care when moving the boxes into our house. What drew us to DIY kitchens was the bespoke colour offering which we couldn't find anywhere on the high street.

The colour was exactly what we wanted. And on top of all this the total price of the kitchen came in under any other quote we were given! Brilliant value for money and two very satisfied customers, thanks DIY kitchens!

Worktops are Lagoon quartz 30mm."

Judy & Richard from Morpeth "Please find the pictures of our lovely new kitchen. Linwood Bespoke.

We were told about DIY kitchens from friends who highly recommended you for a great quality product and great value for money.

Our overall impression is that you provide an excellent service and were very helpful when we needed assistance with our order. We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen, the units are solidly made, the fixtures and fittings are robust, the oak worktops are fantastic and set off the lovely blue colour of the doors. In fact, it's completely changed the way we live because we just love being in the kitchen now, and have even started entertaining more, so that we can show off our lovely new space!!!

The tiles are a Spanish make called Gayafores, Taco Heritage mix, and we bought them from 'Wall and floor tiles Ltd' in Newcastle - think they make a lovely feature wall!"

Mariel from Edinburgh "We were very impressed with the overall quality of the kitchen. It seemed well made when we unpacked it and the joiners that fit the kitchen were very pleased with the quality especially considering the price. They thought it was a very good deal and have gone on to recommend diy-kitchens to their other customers. We are very happy with the doors and the units. The insides are very well made and we particularly liked how solid they feel. "

Sarah from Surrey "Please find attached some images of our recently fitted kitchen. I have been really pleased with the quality of the kitchen in relation to the price. It looks great and everyone that has seen it thinks it cost twice the price I paid for it! The solid nickel handles bought from the US help to make it look amazing too! I heard about DIY-kitchens from my architect who had a client that had one fitted.

Worktop: Lagoon quartz 30mm Worktop"

Patricia from Edinburgh "This is my Linwood kitchen. I love it and everyone is asking me where I got it from. I was nervous about buying from DIY kitchens but won't go anywhere else. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. I heard about the company online. I now have a very expensive LOOKING kitchen!"

Charlotte from Hampshire "I thought I was looking for the impossible when we started looking for kitchens. It needed to be competitive on price, the right colour (which seemed to be impossible to find) ready made and good quality. When we found this website, through the use of Instagram I couldn't believe that we were able to not only chose the exact colours we wanted but to have exceptional quality of solid wood doors, soft close hinges and please our builder with them all being pre built. As a result our builder is now buying his from Diy-kitchens, as he was so impressed and the fitter said it was one of the best quality kitchens around. Overall we are more than happy with how our kitchen has turned out it looks amazing. Thank you!! "

Wendy from Wetherby "A friend recommended DIY kitchens to me. I made several visits to the showroom and took my time to choose my units and adjust the layout; each time the staff were very helpful.

I chose Linwood Painted. I had already chosen the granite worktop and was struggling to find units in the right colour to compliment the worktop so it was great to be able to have a bespoke colour. I used extra tall wall units to fit round my new boiler and throughout the kitchen to match, including the dresser units. I chose curved base units for the ends of the dresser to create extra space and character.

The curved base units are made up of two cupboards which I think is a good design both visually and makes the cupboard contents much more accessible than in a single cupboard, especially as mine are 300mm. I have pull out wire baskets in two my other 300mm base units and I find these work really well. Initially I had an angled cornice but changed this to use more of the straight pelmet as I think this gives a more contemporary finish to my kitchen.

I ordered samples of the handles after the units were installed and found it easier to choose when I could see the various handles with my units. I also bought my lovely sink through DIY.

I am delighted with the quality, value for money and look of my new kitchen from DIY. Thank you!!"

David from Anglesey "We did a lot of shopping around before we chose DIY Kitchens, because we wanted high end designer style and durability for our holiday rental cottage, but at a realistic price. We even visited the Pontefract showroom before making our decision, to be sure we were making the right choice. This confirmed that the hardware, fit and finish were as good as anything we’d seen, and we were able to get a bespoke painted oak kitchen for the same money as a budget flat-pack kitchen from one of the warehouse sellers - amazing value! Our kitchen fitter (who didn’t know the cost or DIY Kitchens brand) was very complementary about the quality too, and we had no problems at all with installation."

Langham Painted

Robin from South Cerney "Langham bespoke painted. We turned to DIY Kitchens based on a fair amount of online research. We needed a new kitchen having re-modelled the downstairs of our holiday home in the Cotswolds ( and we weren't disappointed! Great customer service from pre to post order. Our builder was very impressed by the quality of the units and doors and feedback from our guests so far has been excellent. Thank you!"

Louise from Cheshire "I have sent in details of our new kitchen fitted by T B Electrics & Home Improvements in Northwich."

Angela from London "I love my new Broadoak Painted kitchen. I was having a kitchen-diner extension and knew I wanted something a little different than the typical kitchen colour/design. The ability to choose a completely bespoke colour, along with the Second Nature Broadoak quality door led me to choose DIY-Kitchens.

I had previously used DIY-Kitchens in my last property so was confident in the quality of the units and the ease of ordering and delivery, and I was not disappointed this time.

I love the range of unit sizes and designs available too and found it much greater than other highstreet kitchen suppliers. I wanted a long run of tall cabinets with built-in oven, microwave and double larder unit and found DIY-Kitchens had the best options to fit my space perfectly.

The units came ready-built with the doors all pre-fitted, which my installation team were very grateful for. Do not underestimate the amount of space needed to store it all when it arrives though! I had a couple of units dry-assembled to enable my fitters to customise them to the space (I.e. boiler cupboard). The units themselves were very well built and the soft-close hinges and door runners work perfectly.

DIY-Kitchens were great in allowing me to customise the shelf unit to the ideal width required for my space, with only a small surcharge, and it now looks great framed between two wall-mounted wine units.

The worktop is solid walnut (bought separately from a local supplier) and the floor is engineered oak.

I found the 2D graph-paper planner very helpful to plan exactly where everything was going to go and, critically, to work out where the visible sides would be so I knew how many end panels to order. I particularly love the tongue and groove end panels used around the island and think they add that extra bit of class to an already classy kitchen.

In conclusion, I am very pleased with my new kitchen and the customer service at DIY-Kitchens is great – always on hand to answer any questions or help out with that forgotten item.


Broadoak Painted

Colin from Dorset "We're over the moon with our new Broadoak Painted kitchen. The wide range of units available allowed us to maximise the storage space in our relatively small kitchen. We ordered a couple of the units as Dry Assembled so that we could customise them - one example was to utilise the space above the hob extractor.

Coming back to the kitchen after a holiday where the cottage had a Wickes kitchen made us realise that we had definitely made a good decision. So glad that we included the soft close option for all drawers and doors.

Delivery went without a hitch. The delivery driver kept us informed of their ETA and, despite the fact that they arrived at 10 o'clock at night, it all went without a hitch. The only parts missing were some handle screws and, after a 'phone call, these arrived the next day."

Berit from Sydenham "Our finished kitchen from you."

Louis from Storrington " I have left it more than 10 months after ordering to write this review to ensure that I give a fair and informed review. Like many, I was somewhat concerned about ordering 'Unseen' but having ordered a door and reading independent reviews we took advantage of one of the 10% off deals to order.

Planning was the hard bit, ordering was easy with everything going smoothly. I had a call within a day of ordering to talk through the order to make sure that I had everything. I ordered the platinum service with a small van supplement as I live down a single track lane - all the units came extremely well packed and on unpacking a few weeks later, there were no problems.

Installation was very quick using my own tradesmen and they commented on the quality of the kitchen - I would echo it. After 9 months of use, everything is still working perfectly and the finish has stood the test of three dogs and teenage children. All hinges, opening, soft closes etc still operate flawlessly. I made a mistake on the order (not enough kick-board to avoid a join) and it took a few weeks to come though as it was a bespoke painted finish.

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend the kitchen and supplier - excellent product, excellent service and excellent price."

Helen from Bramhall "We bought our kitchen last September and are delighted with the results. The quality and bespoke colour of the kitchen is wonderful. I had to order a couple of extra things which were my mistake that day kitchens hurried through."
