Silsden Carbon

Mark & Annie from Lincolnshire "I have attached photos of our finished kitchen, one includes our 2 year old Labrador, Bo ( I managed to get him to sit still just long enough ! ) and also 1 photo at the beginning of doing the room, taken a week or so after having the roof replaced.

I have had your website in my Ďfavouritesí for 5 or 6 years Ė I think I found it on a google search when I was looking around the web and I kept it because of the choice you offer in styles/colours Ė donít think I have ever come across anyone that offers so much !

Once we had decided on the lay-out and the choice of doors and finish (Silsdon Carbon) we had you send us a sample door, then followed that up with a trip to your showroom so that I could check out the kitchens in the flesh as it were.... We were really impressed on our visit both by the kitchens on show , and your very friendly and helpful people. We arrived home in the early afternoon and I ordered our kitchen online that evening.

What really sold us on this particular kitchen was the over mantle, it really sets off a range cooker and we think it looks brilliant.

As to the units, they arrived well packaged and in perfect condition, and with them being fully built complete with magic corners and pull outs installed it was the easiest kitchen I have ever fitted (this being the 4th so far) I managed to fit all the units except the sink and over mantle in two afternoons ! The sink unit was done the following Sunday (you delivered on a Wednesday) but I had to wait until my friend was available to lift the over mantle into place.

A T&G panel had been missed on the delivery, but was sorted out quickly and easily by yourselves and didínt impact on the installation at all.

Overall we are chuffed to bits with the finished kitchen, and we are so pleased that we bought our units from you. Loved the tea and choccy biscuits included, thatís a nice touch that you wouldínt get anywhere else, and from a practical point of view it was well built, very nicely finished, and very easy to install. Also found your staff a pleasure to deal with both face to face and via email Ė they are a credit to you."

Bedale Cashmere

Louise from Surrey "Our builder recommended DIY Kitchens after fitting numerous kitchens and being impressed with the quality and service from DIY Kitchens.

We have been extremely impressed with DIY Kitchens, the kitchen is of the highest quality and the customer service before and after sale was fantastic. They are extremely reasonably priced, yet this does not impact the quality of the kitchen, they are very well designed and crafted. We have recommended DIY Kitchens to anyone who will listen! "

Silsden Grey

John & Jackie from Scotland "Here are the pictures of our lovely new DIY Kitchen.

From start to finish we were thoroughly impressed by all aspets of obtaining our kitchen from DIY Kitchens. Firstly the web site was excellent. It is logically laid out and with all of tools like visualisers, planners, guides, videos, technical specifications etc it made designing and selecting our kitchen very easy.

Once we had our initial plan we set off from Scotland to the showroom and sat with one of DIY's technicians who tweaked our design and provided invaluable guidance and tips on how we could improve our soultion and make the installation easier. We were really impressed with the time they took with us and their knowledge and experience of the products. We chose a Traditional Silsden Painted Grey kitchen with Star Galaxy Granite with Pewter effect knobs and handles.

Then whilst we waited on the units being built we removed our old kitchen and prepared it for the arrival of he new units.

From this point on the communication from DIY kitchens was excellent and we were kept advised at each stage of the process by emails. Then we were contacted on schedule to confirm th delivery and the team arrived and delivered all of the fully built units (with the exception of the Walk In Larder which had to be assembled on site by us). There were was one item missing but we simply raise a ticket on the online system and it was there within days.

Then the DIY granite contractor arrived and templated our kitchen. This was done using a laser scanner which made a laser image of our kitchen which was then emailed to the workshop where they could start cutting the garite - amazing use of technology and brillaint service. Once again the team arrived within a wekk with the granite worktops and installed them to a high standard.

Overall we were very pleased with the quality of our units and the excellent support and service from DIY Kitchens and thir suncontractors. We would highly recommend them to anyone. In addition they were very competitively priced for th high quality of materials and fittings that they use."

Silsden Mussel

Sally from High Peak "The kitchen is lovely I'm very happy with it. Thanks Sally."

Silsden Cashmere

Michelle from Sutton Coldfield "I absolutely love my new kitchen, I wasn't sure about having an island but it all works so well and I'm extremely pleased with the quality feel of the units and doors. I chose granite worktops, which do cost a bit more but they finish it off so well."

Silsden Bespoke

Anne from Derbyshire "I was very impressed with the quality of the kitchen. It all arrived on time and with only slight damage to the worktops, which we managed to work around.

The units and doors were very solid, making the kitchen easy to assemble ourselves, despite it being our first one.

As it is an older house we chose the more traditional Silsden style for the doors and had them bespoke painted, which we love, as it really brightens up the room."

Tockwith Dove Grey

Brian from Conwy "Our new kitchen is finally complete. We love the quality of the inframe Tockwith units in dove grey. The worktop is Mistral Aria which was purchased elsewhere. Thank you to all at DIY Kitchens. "

Michelle from Camberwell "High Quality kitchen. I absolutely love it! "

Carl From Hartburn "Excellent pre sales service and advice. Really good quality of units and doors. A few missing items on delivery but they sorted it. Very pleased with the finished kitchen. Just need to fit dryer."

Silsden Grey

Tony from the Wirral "Chose a solid wood painted door (Silsden) in Lamp Room Grey with graphite carcases and Light Grey wall cupboards with light grey carcases. Very impressed with the quality of the kitchen units, particularly the doors which clearly show the wood grain through the painted finish and have a quality look and feel to them.

Although I purchased laminate worktops from DIY Kitchens for my Utility Room (installed early in 2018) I used quartz worktops in the kitchen obtained and fitted by a small company based in Denbigh North Wales.

I fitted the kitchen units myself which is why I made two orders, the wall cupboards being fitted after the worktops had been installed. The kitchen units were mostly very easy to fit, the only real problem I had was with the kitchen mantle unit. I would recommend that you consider dispatching the mantle unit as a flat pack, to be assembled on site, if not being fitted by a kitchen fitter.

I was recommended to DIY Kitchens by a friend in Nantwich who had already fitted one of your kitchens. Visited your show room, which was very helpful in deciding doors to order and gave me some useful ideas for designing our kitchen. Spent a long time using your online design software (beta version) and made a number of different designs before finally deciding on what to order. This software was excellent.

In summary I am extremely pleased with our new kitchen and would recommend DIY Kitchens to anyone looking to fit a new kitchen or replace an existing one."

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. "
