It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional company from start to finish.

Thank you very much.

D & IS 2020

My husband, Tony, fitted the kitchen and we both painted it. It turned out to be the perfect Lockdown project!

Tony built the utility cupboards and pantry to complement your units.

Every day that we use the kitchen is a pleasure. We are very pleased with the quality and finish of your units and have had many admiring comments from friends and family.

C & TY 2020

I really am thrilled with the service & units!!

LD-C 2020

I forgot to say……. Andy and I fitted and painted everything ourselves! we aren’t professional decorators, Andy is a mechanical engineer and I’m a mature student, so hopefully the photos we sent you demonstrates anyone can use your cabinets if they can use a tape measure, a spirit level, and can read up on how to paint and with a little know how.

We’re very happy with the cabinets, the quality is fantastic and we now love spending time in our new kitchen, and of course it’s fab to cook and eat in and the soft close drawers are great. I really love the bin drawers! so convenient and out of the way. The TV cabinet and cupboard around the fridge are also great designs. We substituted the plain glass in the cabinets for green crackle glass, which really makes them stand out, and several people have commented how stunning our kitchen is, and they can’t believe we did it all ourselves! 🙂

I’m really delighted with the kitchen, always a worry when you haven’t actually viewed it in a showroom , and the joiners were very impressed with it also. Everything went very smoothly and the delivery drivers were lovely too.

AT 2019

Everyone has been highly complementary and I have given a couple of people your details.

Everyone involved in the fitting – our builder, plumber, electrician and painter – are really experienced chaps and hugely complimentary about the quality of the cabinets. Of particular note were the drawer runners, drawer construction, hinges, screws, catches and door construction; ‘solid’, ‘great’, ‘excellent’ were words used over and over again in relation to style and quality (materials and workmanship).

Hi there 

Please see attached for photos of our gorgeous kitchen – freshly completed a couple of weeks ago and we are totally over the moon with it! 

Thanks to everyone at HMKOC and especially our designer Stephanie who did a great job. 

R&K R 2019

Having explored a number of volume and premium kitchen suppliers, my wife and I had concluded that we wanted a kitchen that was much more than off the peg.  However, having looked at Neptune and similar kitchens, we were put off by the high cost and lack of British content amongst them.  A friend of ours provided the solution to this, showing us her units from Handmade Kitchens of Christchurch, which we saw in their raw (unpainted or fitted) form. 

We did the design ourselves with the aid of the very comprehensive brochure options, but the Christchurch team was very helpful in turning into the detailed final orders, and in advising on how we could adapt units to achieve the bespoke feel that we wanted.  This was invaluable in making the kitchen work really well, as we were able to use very shallow cupboards along the front of our normal depth peninsula units to create valuable and easily accessible storage space.   We were thrilled with the quality and variety of shapes and sizes that we were able to order, and the ability of the Christchurch team to add rebates to the back and sides of units to cope with the vagaries of stairs and other protrusions.  Our kitchen looks and feels wonderful – the quality is amazing, the value for money was truly impressive, with the icing on the cake being that it was made by British craftsmen.

Please find attached photographs of our kitchen. My husband fitted the kitchen and I painted the units. This is our second kitchen purchased from Handmade Kitchens of Christchurch. The first being 13 years ago we cannot fault the quality and craftsmanship and service provided. 
More photos to follow. 
 
Kind regards  

VF 2019

We just wanted to say we are beyond thrilled with our gorgeous kitchen. From start to finish the whole process went smoothly. The quality of our kitchen units is superb. Far superior to the quality offered by your competitors who wanted to charge double the price. We have already recommended your company several time!! Thank you to everyone, first class service.

Hi Keith 

Here are some photos for you. I hope they are okay? We are beyond delighted with your cabinets. Easily up there with Devol and Neptune at a fraction of the cost. 

“Where did you get your kitchen cabinets from” is something we hear a lot!

Dear Penny  

How kind many thanks, I love my kitchen and it’s the second we’ve had from you so I was only too happy to recommend you.

Dear Handmade Kitchens, 

 Just a quick note to say thank you for a seamless delivery yesterday.  The delivery guys were excellent – very careful and helpful.  The kitchen units are beautifully made and met or exceeded our expectations.  We did take a bit of a chance as we’ve not managed to visit your showroom but I’m glad to say your reputation is well-deserved. 

Thanks again. 

Best regards,

Hello there Sally 

 We have finally finished our kitchen! I’m attaching some photos for you as requested. We are utterly delighted and cannot thank you enough for the beautiful cupboards you made for us. We never imagined in such a small, higgledy-piggledy kitchen that we would be able to achieve what we have, and we couldn’t have done it without your flexible ordering system. Your customer service has been second to none and I am already busy recommending you to friends and family! Thank you very much indeed. 

Kind regards

Dear Penny,  


Please pass on my thanks for my recommendation gift, which arrived today. I have posted it on instagram and #handmadekitchensofchristchurch. It is always a pleasure to recommend such an amazing company, fantastic quality and customer service like no other. 

I recommend you all daily.  

Many thanks,

Hi, 
 
A few years ago, we re-designed our kitchen and bought our units etc from yourselves.  They were, and still are, fantastic – we were so pleased with everything, your friendly, prompt, efficient service, the standard of the workmanship, delivery of the product – absolutely everything.  We are now re-decorating the kitchen and need to freshen up the worktops.  We bought the American Walnut which we love but can’t remember the name of the oil we should use on this wood – we really loved the dark, rich colour of this wood.  Please could you let us know the name of the product we should use? 
 
Many thanks for your help with this – much appreciated. 
 
Best wishes

Hi All 
 
Now that we are in, I thought I would send a Huge Thank you for all your efforts in helping us to get our Amazing!! new kitchen completed. 
 
We are totally thrilled and ecstatic with the finished product. 
 
Just so you know, we sought quotes from around 30 kitchen providers of all shapes and sizes, and feel fortunate that a bit of late night googling led us to your company.😀 
 
Finally, I would like to add that all interactions with staff were exemplary,  from Nicola, to Stefanie to Penny and Sally the whole experience seemed to be a lot easier than it should be 😀 
 
Delivery guys and post sales snagging team were also great. 
 
We are EXTREMELY!!  pleased and will be sure to pass on the word… 
 
Here are a couple of pictures as evidence 😀 
 
Thanks

Hi, 

I am attaching some photographs of my kitchen, which to be honest I have been wanting to do for some time. 

I would like to take this chance to say thank you to the whole team. I was a bit apprehensive at first, because I wasn’t sure of the process, not having a “3D design” or the kitchen installed completely finished, was quite daunting, as this is my first kitchen. After viewing your kitchen’s in your showroom and speaking with the sales advisor’s, I decided that it seemed quite straight forward. The ordering process was extremely easy. All the team was extremely helpful at every stage of the process. Even your delivery drivers were the nicest I have ever met! I honestly can’t thank you enough as I now have my dream kitchen, every single person that walks into my house can’t stop complimenting my kitchen. The design and quality of your kitchen’s has exceeded my expectations by far.  

I really hope that my photos help increase your business, as it would be so amazing for more people to know about your kitchen’s so that they too can enjoy it. I keep recommending yourselves to all friends and family. I’m sorry that the quality of the photos are not the best, should you ever want to send someone to take professional photos that would be fine, as these photos don’t do justice of just how lovely it really is.  

Thanks once again and I hereby give you permission to use these photos wherever you like. 

Kindest Regards,

Dear Penny 
 
We moved back into our house in December and I have been meaning to email you to say how pleased I have been with Handmade Kitchens.  The service you and your colleagues gave was fantastic.  You were always all very friendly and helpful on the phone, answering many queries and being patient with decisions etc, all of which is much appreciated and made the whole process so much easier than it could have been.  The process you have in place is very well explained along the way and therefore as a client I knew exactly what was going on at each stage.  I am extremely pleased with the kitchen, it looks really fantastic and is exactly what I’d hoped for. 
 
I would absolutely recommend Handmade Kitchens, it was a very simple and pleasant experience dealing with you and your colleagues and the finished product is really excellent quality.   
 
With kind regards

Dear Julie and Russ

Sadly our kitchen wasn’t finished in time to send photos by 21 November, which is a shame as it is FABULOUS!! We are so happy with the quality, of the units and the helpful members of staff at Handmade kitchens of Christchurch who helped us along the way. We were also lucky to find a great fitter, who among his many skills, was able to customised the plinth of the dishwasher in order to display the laser projection on to the floor. With the help of ‘The Traditional Painter’ Website we found an excellent kitchen unit painter, he painted our kitchen in Farrow & Ball, Haig blue and elephants breath, the inside was oiled in several coats of Osmo which shows up the beautiful oak veneer.

We couldn’t have asked for more.
