Rachel from Leicestershire "We absolutely love the kitchen. The quality of the units and worktops are fantastic. The price is not a reflection of the quality but that of a very good kitchen at an affordable price.

We did our research and had quotes from some of DIY kitchens competitors and had one quote that came back double for a much less spec kitchen.

Ordering was easy, we did use the DIY Kitchens online planner, which helped. Delivery was when specified and when a part was missing they organised a re delivery quickly.

The sink, over mantle and cooker are my favourite parts. Everyone comments on how amazing it looks and I would recommend their kitchens and service again. "

Clare from London "Heard about DIY Kitchens looking at many other people's kitchens through their photo's on Instagram. Realised how good the selection and price was, and how positive everyone was about them.

I'm delighted with my new kitchen. The units (Linwood Light Grey) are top quality and look wonderful. My builders were impressed with the quality and ease of installation, in fact, co-coincidentally, my lead builder had already used DIY kitchens in his own house!

I really enjoyed being able to have such control over designing my own kitchen. The measuring up was simple, and things that I had missed were brought to my attention by the excellent customer service team, of whom I can't speak highly enough.

The range of choice is unrivaled, and the price amazing. I would recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone (in fact I already have to anyone who will listen!). You will not be disappointed, and will draw lots of admiration from others at how good your kitchen looks! "

Seb and Liz from Brighton "We are really thrilled with our new kitchen! It was quite daunting designing our own layout but in the end it's meant we've ended up with a space that works perfectly for our family. There was such an enormous range of furniture sizes to choose from that it meant anything was possible!

We made the trip to Sheffield and were glad we did as it was really helpful to see some of the options in person, particularly the corner wall cupboard and various larder and corner options (we opted for one swing out larder, one larder with drawers and a Le Mans corner unit.

We are really pleased with the quality and value of our kitchen, as was our kitchen fitter. Any minor issues were resolved quite quickly. We were also particularly impressed with the pre-sales support.

We ordered some extra paint and enjoyed making our own DIY play kitchen too!

Zoe from Farnham "Here are some pictures of my new kitchen. Overall impression of the kitchen is... absolutely amazing. The ordering process was really easy, the delivery men friendly and so fast getting everything in and it genuinely looks like a really expensive kitchen.

I heard about DIY Kitchens through my builder Paul, he’s used you before and recommended me to use them. We designed the kitchen together then ordered away. Simples!"

Jackie from Plymouth "Please find attached some photos of our new NORTON light grey kitchen for you to add to your website.

This is our lovely new Norton kitchen and utility room. We found DIY Kitchens whilst searching online and were immediately impressed by the website, selection of kitchen styles and value for money.

After drawing up our ideas and several inquiries we thought a visit to the showroom was in order! We made the long journey up from Devon, but it was well worth the effort to see the kitchens 'for real' and the staff were full of useful advise.

Delivery went as planned and the units were well made, making installation much easier. We also adapted a double base unit to make a 'bed/sleeping' area for our dog Daisy!

We would certainly recommend DIY kitchens to others......maybe a showroom in the South would be useful!"

Riyaz from Orpington "I think the kitchen is superb. The builders who put the kitchen in commented that in the 10 years that they have been fitted kitchens, there is only one that's been better - and that was a german kitchen which cost over £20k!

I spent £4k on a kitchen that looks 3 times the price, and the build quality is truly brilliant. Was a bit dubious about the reviews, so went up to the showroom in person to order - and it was so simple and the guys there helped me loads in getting all the right bits in.

It does take a bit more effort than popping down to your local kitchen showroom, but for the price saving (over £3k compared to a local retailer!) and the better quality - its a no brainer. I have recommended DIY Kitchens to a fair few friends already, and my builder said he would be recommending these kitchens solely going forward."

Norton Bespoke

Iona from North London "We are so pleased with our DIY Kitchen. After changing from a major high street brand at the last minute as we had concerns over their customer service we could not be happier. We were nervous about buying a kitchen online but DIY Kitchen’s customer service was impeccable and gave me the confidence that we had made the right decision.

The kitchen units are beautiful, and the quality of the timber shaker doors with the colour matched paint has given us the kitchen that we really wanted. The units look and feel like a premium kitchen but happily they came with a much more affordable price tag.

We heard about DIY Kitchens after desperately researching alternatives to the traditional high street kitchen shops online. DIY Kitchens came with glowing reviews from people in the same predicament we were in."

Richard and Julie from Llandegfan "We took a trip up to Leeds to have a look at the DIY Kitchens showroom, as it is a lot of money to spend on something that you haven't seen and we were very impressed with not only the quality and range of kitchens there but of the showroom as well.

After checking in, you are left alone to wander round and look at all the different styles. There are plenty of staff on hand to answer any questions but nobody hassles you.

When we decided on a kitchen, the ordering process was pretty straightforward (apart from the delivery map not acknowledging the existence of Anglesey!) and the kitchen was hand delivered, ready assembled exactly when they said it would be and for less money than we had been quoted elsewhere, for MDF and Laminate worktops.

We upgraded to solid oak cabinet doors, 2 x Electrolux Pyrolytic Ovens, a bottle fridge and quartz worktop. I would recommend going for the 2 man delivery as they will bring it all into the house and stack it for you (some of the units are very heavy).

Despite never having fitted a kitchen before, I managed to do it all myself. It is just a case of measuring everything twice. The DIY Kitchens website has lots of helpful How-tos and videos.

Once the kitchen was fitted, they sent someone round to laser measure the kitchen for the granite worktop to be fitted. 6 days later, a couple of guys came round and expertly fitted the stone worktop.

It took me a few weeks to finally get round to completing the tiling but we are very pleased with the final result and would definitely recommend this firm to anyone looking for a good quality kitchen from a reliable firm.

Very pleased with our new kitchen. Thanks for a pain-free process!"

Vanessa from Leicester "Here’s some pictures of our newly fitted kitchen from you. Have recommended to friends. "

Jackie from Cheshire "Loving my new kitchen from DIY kitchens. The doors look and feel really really good, handles are good quality and half the price of most. Also had solid oak worktops from them which I am really pleased with.

I had originally ordered a kitchen from another well known supplier the week before but had read quite a lot of bad review's on the Which? website and that is where I heard about DIY kitchens, so we went to the showroom, the staff were very helpful and the choice was amazing! So glad we went."

Ellie from London "We couldn't be happier with it. Everything has a place, we can finally store everything away with no clutter! The units are solid and great quality - the doors are thick and all the internal components are solid - our previous kitchen had bendy shelves and there's none of that now! The pan drawers particularly are really sturdy and make it super easy to access all our pans and crockery.

I found the planning process less difficult than I thought it would be, and the team were really helpful (and patient!) with all my questions.

We've had nothing but compliments on it since it was installed and lots of people have asked where we got it from! "

Lewis from Berkhamsted "I attach some pictures of our kitchen all finished. We are very happy with the quality and look, and the customer support was fantastic. Have recommended your company to two of my friends who have both placed orders/in the process of placing an order with you. I'm sure they will be just as pleased with their kitchens as we are."

Norton Bespoke

Katie from Kenilworth "Just thought I'd send you some photos of our newly finished kitchen we bought from you. We were very impressed with the service you provided and are thrilled with the finished product. The fitters were also very impressed by the superior quality of the units. We would not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Kitchen is Norton Bespoke painted colour matched to F&B Skimming Stone with Hafele Somerset cabinet knobs, Istria Quartz and solid oak worktops and Dijon brushed limestone floor tiles. Walls painted in F&B Wimbourne White.

A few tips I learnt:

1. Visit the showroom! I made a 5 hour return trip to the showroom and it was definitely worth it, lots of inspiration and helpful staff and good to see and feel the actual units. After the visit I ended up ordering completely different units and colour to the one I had planned, so definitely worth the trip!

2. Tall wall units look great but make sure the room height is adequate to allow them (include thickness of floor tiles + adhesive in your calculation!).

3. If your kitchen is delivered without a box of fittings, check inside the other boxed units. Our box of fittings (unit legs, wall brackets etc) was hidden inside the integrated fridge freezer carcass! We initially didn't realise this and led to a lot of worry that our builders (who were arriving in the morning) wouldn't be able to actually fit the kitchen! A quick phone call to you that morning sorted this out... but maybe you should make this more clear."
