Linwood Dove Grey

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 with Hafele Somerset cabinet knobs, Istria Quartz and solid oak worktops and Dijon brushed limestone floor tiles.

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."

Stella from Bromley "Loving our new kitchen from DIY Kitchens."

Norton Light Grey

Susan from Northumberland "I've attached photos of my finished kitchen, the kitchen is narrow so it's difficult to fit the whole room into the photos.

The kitchen units and doors are of a good quality and were delivered without any damage on the agreed date. We're very happy with the kitchen and would definitely use DIY kitchens again."

Linwood Dove Grey

Richard from Somerset "Our overall impression of the kitchen we installed was that the units were very sturdy, well assembled and the finish on the doors were excellent. I had a comment from a friend who regularly installs kitchens and said that unlike other competitors in the market, the carcass of the units were thicker and stronger than the majority he had seen.

We thought a lovely touch was when we received our delivery there was a box of tea bags and biscuits included: I also appreciated the fact that during the planning process your customer service and staff who I interacted with were very knowledgable and helped me to make my mind up, and there was no ďhard sellĒ during the process. I will be recommending your kitchens to others without doubt.

I have included in one of my pictures Magnus, one of our cats who has taken to perching on a stool in the kitchen ever since installation!"

Linwood Grey

Katie from Wolverhampton "We were really impressed with the kitchen. My builder was sceptical at first as he has fitted hundreds of kitchens and always used a well known high street supplier. However even he had to admit that it was excellent quality and the the legs on the units were the sturdiest he had ever seen!

In fact I have now become his showroom and a few of his potential clients have come round to be impressed! I love the storage solutions such as the hideaway bins and the huge walk in larder unit, which hides a multitude of things (including me when I need a chocolate pick me up without the kids noticing!) I would definitely order from diykitchens again and have already recommended you to friends. "

Linwood Mussel

Jannette from Gornal Wood "Here are photos of my completed kitchen which is fabulous. We used your company after my husband was told about you by a work colleague.

The units are fantastic quality, we had Linwood in Mussel, the quality is so much better than other brands we saw (and believe me, we spent two years going round looking at them!), the quality of the wood on the doors is so much better as it's made from hardwood rather than MDF.

We looked online and used the brilliant 360 degree tour then took a trip up to the showroom (I would recommend doing this if you are uncertain because not only are the staff very helpful and friendly, you can see the great quality in person (and there are free refreshments too!).

We then planned it out at home and although we could have done it online at home, decided to go back to the showroom to do place the order in case we got any problems and again, the staff, especially Brian, were excellent. We had to use customer services a couple of times, and they were very helpful, special mention and thanks to Alice and Jonathan.

They gave us a delivery date, and keep in touch with you, and delivered exactly when they promised. Everything comes ready assembled so you only have to fit them, it couldn't be easier!

As you can see from the photos, I have the most beautiful kitchen I could have hoped for and for a fraction of the price it would have cost me anywhere else. My friends have been round and commented on how lovely it is, and one of them has just had hers done, in an identical design, but as she commented, hers isn't hardwood, and it cost three times as much as what we paid, so that reconfirmed our faith not only in the quality but the fantastic value for money.

Thank you DIY Kitchens"

Sam from Bath "I am really happy with our DIY kitchen, we were able to design exactly what we needed online and the quality and finish of all aspects of the kitchen is excellent. The units are made to a high standard and are robust enough to deal with everyday family life. I would highly recommend DIY kitchens. "

Norton Grey

Hannah from Lancs "We found DIY kitchens through an online search as we were struggling to find a shaker kitchen in the colour we wanted, and didn't have the budget for a bespoke handmade one! Really impressed with the range of colours available at DIY kitchens and after ordering a sample door decided to come and visit your Yorkshire showroom to make our final decisions on unit types.

Order process was simple, showroom staff answered all our questions and ordering online was straightforward. Our builders fitted the kitchen and were really impressed with the quality of the units and now it's finished we can't believe we're still in the same house. The painted finish is exactly what we wanted, and the kitchen has look of bespoke ranges costing two or three times the price.

The larder cupboard and corner carousel units are our favourite, they give us acres of storage space make it so easy to find things.

We can't recommend DIY kitchens enough for quality, service and value for money."

Rebecca from Sheffeild "Just sending pictures of our finished kitchen, we're so thrilled with it. Thank you for your great customer service. "

Lynn from Southampton "I have attached some photos of our beautiful new kitchen. We are absolutely delighted with the quality of the units and the overall finish. We have the pale grey Linwood. We were very impressed with the efficiency of the company. "

Linwood Light Grey

Nick from Gloucester "I went with DIY Kitchens after a recommendation from family. I am very impressed with both the quality and price, I had several quotes for kitchens of a lower spec which were considerably higher!

The process was simple and staff very helpful on the phone. I bought the Linwood kitchen in light grey and am very pleased. "

Jan from Horncastle "Hi,here is my new kitchen. As you can see it is amazing (well we think it is). I ordered my kitchen from you when you were recommended by my sister and we saw her new kitchen. We were very impressed with not only the quality of the units but the competitive price compared to others we had looked at and had plans for. We visited your showroom several times as I couldn't make my mind up which kitchen to choose. (Another plus amazing choice.)

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly , nothing was too much trouble . Our kitchen fitter, was impressed by the good quality of the units and doors.

Two months on we still walk into our kitchen and say Wow....... Our kitchen was fitted. By Peter Herbert Bespoke Cabinets and Joinery, who did an amazing job.

We have recommended your company to lots of friends and will continue to do so. In fact one couple who are building their new home have already chosen their kitchen from you and have come back to us with nothing but praise for your staff and all of your products.."
