Silsden Alabaster

Sushma from Middlesex "Finished Silsden alabaster kitchen pictures."

Silsden Alabaster

Steve & Anna from Telford "Hi, some pictures of the kitchen we designed and installed ourselves as part of a full refurbishment which included wall insulation, bricking up a window, unblocking a chimney recess and a new floor. All work was done by myself except the template and supply of the mirror quartz work surfaces.

The wide range of quality units available allowed us to plan and install the units with a minimum of cutting allowing us to save money on paying for installation. "

Garry from Aberdeenshire "I honestly cannot put into words how much you have impressed me with your friendly, systemised, and down to earth service. I had serious misgivings about ordering a kitchen online but have been telling everyone about you ever since!

Thank you very much for helping us with our project."

Scott & Jennie from Witham "Please find attached some photos of our recently completed kitchen that we're delighted with.

We're really happy with the kitchen and super friendly and helpful service. Our fitter was extremely impressed with the quality of the units. He hadn't heard of DIY kitchens, however, was so impressed that he will now recommend them going forward."

Linwood Alabaster

Nick from Cornwall " Here are some pictures of my kitchen you may wish to use.

We are delighted with the kitchen we now have. It looks superb. The units/doors are of the highest quality, we never imagined our kitchen would look so good and so expensive. We considered other high street kitchen companies, and believe by choosing DIY Kitchens we have saved well over 9000.

The after service care provided by DIY Kitchens is again fantastic and the support team were only to happy to help. "

Linwood Alabaster

Chris from Stockport " I am sending some pictures and feedback for our new Linwood Alabaster painted oak kitchen which was completed earlier this week.

We knew about DIY Kitchens already from our son who had ordered his kitchen from them last year, and was impressed.

We are delighted with our new kitchen supplied by DIY Kitchens and have received many favourable comments already. The quality of the units is excellent, especially the top-end Blum drawers. We visited the DIY Kitchens showroom in Yorkshire and were very impressed with the quality of all the products, and the help and advice available there. We used our own team of joiner, electrician, plumber and plasterer. Yes, you do have to take care at the planning stage, and you will have to do more project management compared to getting a kitchen company in, but we have saved ourselves thousands of pounds using DIY Kitchens-supplied units and our own team, and I believe we have ended up with a far superior kitchen. Thanks "

Linwood Alabaster

Emma from Leicestershire "We just wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with our new Linwood kitchen. We went with colour Alabaster predominately but also added a "dresser" in Cornflower blue.

The quality of the doors, carcasses, handles etc have been excellent - our kitchen fitter was very dubious prior to us taking delivery, as he doesn't advocate online shopping but he was thrilled to bits with it too! He kept commenting how well built it was and how easy it was to put together.

Ordering and planning was easy once I'd printed off your online sheets and any help we needed was readily supplied by your staff - they were stars!

Our builder has since recommended you to a number of his clients - our kitchen is now somewhat of a showroom! "

Susan from Wilts "The attached are photos of our Linwood Alabaster kitchen with solid oak worktops."

Eden Classic

Susanne and Lucas from Cambridge " In short, we are absolutely delighted with our kitchen. We believe that we could not find a cheaper kitchen of such a very high quality.

We actually enjoyed the process which we went through with DIY Kitchens, which is different from what is offered in retail parks up and down the land.

The DIY Kitchen show-room sits only in South Yorkshire. We found it difficult to complete our project without visiting the show-room twice. This involved 5-hour round-trips for us, but we're very glad we did it. This highlights that managing your "kitchen project" will take some effort. We found it rewarding and enjoyable enough to bother, but it may not be everyone's "cup-of-tea".

We chose a solid wood Eden Classic (vanilla) style, complete with Iroko wooden worktops. There are plenty of other style-choices to be made... built-in appliances (at very competitive prices), sinks, handles, etc. and we loved it all!

Due to the outstanding value on offer, we allowed ourselves the luxury of going for flashy mechanisms in base corner units and some variety to door finishes, such as "braided steel" and "woven glass". This all contributed to our satisfaction with the end result, but it does take a bit of planning, spatial awareness (accurate measuring) and visualisation.

It is important to emphasise that one does need to be very careful about measuring spaces for the units so that things fit into the kitchen area. Our visit to the show-room was a good learning experience in regard to this because otherwise we would not have realised the importance of allowing spaces between units, and making sure things like oven doors can open properly, etc. There are pitfalls to learn about when fitting kitchens - and beware that expensive mistakes are possible.

We were really lucky because we got some fabulous advice and customer service from a nice young man called Oliver, but we are aware that DIY Kitchens may not be able to promise this in all cases. This was why our visits to the show-room were well-and-truly worth it.

We decided to save our budget by removing our old kitchen units and tiles, etc. ourselves. This stretched our DIY skills to the limit, but we got it done - just! A valuable thing which we also got from our show-room visit was to be put in touch with a fantastic pair of kitchen fitters who were familiar with the products. The units are very popular with kitchen fitters because they are delivered ready-assembled, so it saves them a lot of time and fiddling about.

Also note, however, that you need to be prepared to take delivery of bulky, heavy units (solid wooden quality is heavy) when the large lorry arrives with your fantastic new units. Again, it's only fair to highlight that one has to be prepared to project-plan. Another important part of this is to check delivery because we did find one error, although this was rectified quite quickly by customer services.

A word on our kitchen fitters. Mark Mallender and his willing accomplice, Lee did a first class job. They worked really hard to fit our medium-sized kitchen in 3 days. What we really appreciated was the way that they would listen carefully to what we wanted, and really cared about meeting our requirements -even when it made their work more difficult. Lee went to great lengths to deliver a bespoke piece of joinery, and we saw the perfectionist in him. Mark is a very experienced builder and he was calm and highly competent throughout. Nothing fazed him.

In conclusion, we are so pleased with our new kitchen and found it so rewarding to play a more active role in the project, than just accepting an "off-the-shelf" solution, which could easily cost twice the price and have half the quality. "
