Cornell Classic

Delphine from London " I thought I would send you a few pictures of my now finished kitchen. It is a very small space so I had to limit the number of units, which means it is probably not the best example to showcase the Cornell Classic range but I believe the result is different to the more 'standard' kitchens you have on the website - it is quirky and I tried to give it a unique look.

I absolutely love my new kitchen. I had a very reduced space to work with so I wanted to focus on quality materials rather than quantity. I started looking for affordable solid wood kitchen ranges online and stumbled upon DIY kitchens. I chose to have units fitted on only one side of the wall in order to keep the space open and used any space saving solutions as I could - the built in drawer under the oven is a wonderful thing...

I wanted a traditional and quirky feel and the Belfast sink gave me this. The tongue and groove panels on the side of the sink gives that extra traditional finish and so do the antique brass handles. I was equally impressed with the quality of the oak worktop which came as such a competitive price compared to other retailers.

Overall I am really pleased with the service received and the unique look of my kitchen. "

Linwood Vanilla

Elizabeth from Dumfries "Here are some photos of our lovely new kitchen.

You may remember I was your 'nightmare' customer! I had to keep changing the order as I measured up myself and not being well experienced in kitchen installation, got it wrong. My son-in-law - John Baird, who also ordered his kitchen from you and recommended you to me was advising me over the phone and also put the kitchen in for us when it arrived.

As you can see it all fitted in really well.

The units are Linwood Painted and we love the country style.

We are really impressed with the quality and also your customer service. The lady I spoke to (on numerous occasions!) was so friendly and patient with me. Also we enjoyed the tea and bikkies you sent with the delivery.

Thank you so much. "

Marie from Middlesbrough "I am writing to let you know how delighted we are with our kitchen from DIY Kitchens We had seen the Cornell Classic kitchen on display in various showrooms but after getting three quotes from local kitchen suppliers, we never thought we could afford a kitchen from this range.

However after searching the Internet, we came across your company . We visited the showroom with an outline plan and the staff were extremely helpful in placing the order and much to our surprise it turned out to be thousands cheaper than other competitors.

The kitchen is of really good quality and although we had a couple of minor hiccups with the order i.e a missing door and the wrong integrated doors , a quick e mail soon sorted these problems out.

The added bonus was that the kitchen arrived with pull out storage units and carousels already installed which we did not expect and this really impressed our builder as it saved time on installation.

We would not hesitate in recommending your company to our friends and family."

Gail from Tattershall "Hi I was so pleased with my new kitchen I thought I would email some pictures of the end result. The service was excellent from start to finish and the cabinets were of excellent quality. After visiting numerous kitchen providers we could not find a deal to beat yours. We visited your showroom and found all staff to be most helpful. After ordering we were kept informed of delivery schedule and received the goods exactly when you said we would and by two very pleasant and helpful delivery drivers. I would most definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a new kitchen and should we ever have need for another one I would not bother looking anywhere else. "

Stewart from Durham "My completed cornell classic kitchen. "

Fiona from Perth " We were really impressed with the quality of doors and units we bought from DIY Kitchens. The variety of unit sizes available through DIY Kitchens allowed us to build a bespoke seating area (wine drinking area) and fireplace surround for our cooker. The customer service was always exceptional with staff more than happy to help whenever we called. Our joiner loved the fact that the units arrived fully built and itemised and said they were really easy to work with. By using DIY Kitchens we were able to afford doors and worktops at a much higher standard than if we'd settled for high street prices. We love our kitchen and will definitely be recommending DIY kitchens to all odour friends!"

Matt from Iver "The Kitchen units are excellent quality. Well worth the extra cost for the service of pre-built cabinets with Doors, Draws and soft closer's all expertly factory fitted. Saves so much time on installation with only minor adjustments required. Very impressed and have been recommended to friends and family."

Cornell Classic

Helen from Nottingham " We chose Classic Cornell doors, Natural Lancaster Oak carcasses and Oak worktops. The ceramic sink is also from DIY Kitchens.

The units are finished with classic Cornell pelmets and cornices, alabaster plinths and dust strips and the handles are traditional cup style. We wanted a traditional yet bright kitchen for our Victorian semi.

We are very happy with the quality and price. The delivery went smoothly and the fitting went well thanks to the units being fully assembled. There was only a slight problem with one of the work tops being the wrong finish but this was rectified swiftly.

We have been recommending Diy Kitchens to our friend's and family and have had lovely compliments from visitors.

Thanks for an amazing at a fantastic price."

Carron from Wrexham "Here are some pictures of our new kitchen. Thanks"

Mark & Rhian from Cardiff "The kitchen is everything we hoped it would be: ergonomics with class.

On the whole the fitter and we were very happy with the fittings. Only problems were:

(1) we didn't realise the doors would not be pre-drilled for hinges as I misunderstood the question when ordering

(2) the insert to fit between the microwave and the cupboard space in the microwave unit was not the right size we had to come up with something else ourselves.

Clive from Liverpool "Having looked around a number of high street kitchen suppliers I looked on the internet and found DIY kitchens. My wife and I made an appointment and crossed the Pennines to visit the showrooms. These showrooms were far more extensive than we expected and there was plenty of choice of styles to choose from. "

Cornell Classic

Linda from Leicestershire "The fittings are of an extremely high standard with the drawers gliding shut and the soft-close cupboards effortlessly shutting. My sink and tap are fabulous and add to that luxurious feel my new kitchen creates.

I would just like to say a massive 'thank you' to you all at DIY Kitchens for the help, support and advice you provided. I now have a beautiful kitchen which I am really proud of. We have created one fabulous room from 3 to achieve what you now see and I now have to save my money again to get the rest of the units, but unfortunately that will not be for a while. But I will be back in touch."

Mrs Newton - Tyne & Wear "Due to recently receiving emails from you regarding your kitchens, this has prompted me to forward you a picture of our kitchen which we purchased from you in 2010. In the passed I did say I would send you a picture but I wasn't particularly 'IT' experienced!!!!!!

However, I'm delighted to attach my kitchen photo......we were so delighted with our kitchen & I did acknowledge this to you. We have certainly recommended DIY Kitchens for both quality & service to many people and we are aware some have bought from you.

My husband is a DIY perfectionist of 40yrs. He built the kitchen himself and was also delighted with telephone enquiries to your staff (a rare service these days). Also when the kitchen arrive (on time), you had even enclosed a packet of Shortbread & Yorkshire very nice & certainly appreciated.

I love my kitchen and we are always being complimented on it. "

Alison - Dorset "I have just ordered another kitchen from you and thought I would send you a photo of the last one I bought from you, in Cornell Classic.

Many many positive comments from people about it, and very pleased with the quality and service I received from DIY kitchens.

The next one is being delivered in the New Year, so will send you photos of that when it has been installed.

Many thanks for your continued help and support, and look forward to ordering from you again.

Best wishes

Alison "

David - Fife "I was well pleased with both the quality of your product and the service on the net, over the 'phone and during a visit to your showroom and production facility. I had recently purchased a kitchen for another property from an nationwide department store (John Lewis) but a much wider range was available from you and the prices were better. I did obtain quotes from two or three other sources but your only serious competitor was another manufacturer closer to my home who were comparable in cost but by then I had visited your factory when I happened to be in the area and I was impressed with what I saw there and the reception I received. My layout was largely all my own idea but I did tweak it in the light of comments from you and your competitors. "
