Norton Light Grey

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."

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!"

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."

Linwood Dove Grey

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! "

Sarah from Cleckheaton "Here is my new kitchen completed. Malton in grey we absolutely love it. "

Malton Light Grey

Louise from Nantwich "The process of designing, ordering, delivery and fitting of our DIY kitchen was brilliant. I used the online planner extensively, and had a few checks done which was great and the team were really helpful in pointing things out I may have missed. This gave me much more confidence when we ordered the kitchen, and it goes without saying that the price was incredibly competitive and just what we wanted! When it came to delivery, the lads were fantastic and helpful, and apart from one door missing, everything was tip top.

My uncle and partner (who is a joiner and they have fitted many kitchens together) fitted it for us, and couldn’t believe the quality for the price we paid. The fact they came assembled meant it was fitted in just under 2 days! They both said they’d recommend DIY Kitchens to friends and customers! I’m so pleased with it. In the end I went with the standard Light Grey, and it’s just what I wanted. So chuffed!! "

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."

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."
