Good morning Keith,

We have just completed fitting the handles to our new kitchen and we’re so pleased with the result. Your team have done a great job and the finish of all the units is fantastic. Kevin was also great at assisting me with the order all the way through the process. Thank you to all.

Would you still like some photos of the kitchen now that it is complete, of do you have enough?

In other news, our daughter was born last week so we have a name for the engraved drawer – not something that you should remember by the way, but I’ll reply to that email shortly.

Happy Christmas to all at Handmade Kitchens.

Hi Karen

We have finally finished the kitchen!  Had a lot to do in the house generally and all the small jobs were left till the last.

I have attached some photos (which my husband has also sent to Keith and Ian).

The paint colour is Little Green Hicks Blue – handles were sourced by ourselves.

Absolutely delighted with the whole kitchen, and especially the quality cabinets

Hi Sally,

I am really sorry but cannot see how to post this review, are you able to?

Having worked in the British furniture industry for 43 years, the materials and construction were important to me when choosing our kitchen. We needed a functional kitchen that a busy family can use everyday without worry. 

Similarly the design and quality had to be in-keeping with the original features of our home built in 1928.

We wanted to maximise the space and HMK had the ability and willingness to provide the units we needed.

We had lived without the kitchen we wanted for a long time so to have exactly what we needed and wanted, has been fantastic for us.

HMK did everything they said, in an efficient manner, therefore we have been happy to recommend HMK to friends and family who have already ordered kitchens.

Just writing to say a massive thank you to you all.

We started planning our kitchen in February 2018 and looked to Handmade of Christchurch for ideas.

After studying their very detailed online site, opted for a Tulipwood kitchen so we could paint it whatever colour we wanted.

There are endless options and you really do think of every tiny detail – which made such a different at the end of the day to us as we were having a whole new extension built.

In brief we are 100% delighted with our new kitchen

Great customer service from planning to delivery.

Excellent attention to detail.

Solid, well made, cabinets.  

With the added bonus, you can choose the exact colour you want for your hand made kitchen (and apply at your leisure!)

Handmade of Christchurch deliver the goods they advertise and more!

J&O S Aug 2018

Easy and stress-free process from beginning to end. Quality product, delivered on time and exactly as we ordered.  Our kitchen looks absolutely fabulous, easily on par with more expensive suppliers.  Absolutely no reason to go anywhere else if we should ever need another kitchen in the future!.  Thank you Hand Made Kitchens of Christchurch.  10 out of 10!

Dear Jacky & Angela,

We are moving into our house and wanted to send you a couple of photos of the kitchen and say a HUGE thank you to you and your team. “My dream kitchen has come true!”

Thank you for all your help and support.

I just wanted to let you know that it was due to the great recommendation of C&K T  that we heard about your fantastic company.

My parents are looking forward to meeting with you , Angela on Tuesday

Kind regards

Good Morning Keith,

Our kitchen has been in use now for nine months and we are still thrilled with the quality and how practical it is. 

I would just like to stress that it does indeed look like the photographs every day. In my last kitchen I had numerous items on the worksurfaces, storage jars, utensil pots, spice jars etc. The joy of my fabulous new kitchen is that everything is put away in the large drawers but so assessable to reach. I no longer have that dread when I carry my shopping bags into the kitchen: before I was crawling on my knees or reaching for the steps to put items into the depths of the old wall units. Now everything goes into my larder and drawers – so easy.

I have enclosed a photograph of the larder that you adapted for us to fit the space plus, we had a small broom cupboard that we wanted to turn into open shelves however with advice from your colleagues the workshop was able to make us a small half size door which fitted perfectly and enabled us to have an extra little cupboard. 

We spend all our time in the kitchen, only retiring to the sitting room in the evening, in truth my dining room has become rather redundant because we just love sitting around the kitchen table.

Wishing you continued success, if we can help in any other way, please let us know.

Kindest Regards to all the folks at Handmade Kitchens.

Just wanted to say that we are very pleased with our kitchen, which was much admired at Christmas and is working very well for us. Thank you for your help and patience during the planning process. The attention to detail certainly paid off in the end.

Dear Penny,

We love our kitchen and get a lot of compliments on it.  We recommended you to some friends who bought with you – and have recently recommended you to JH & AB, who are planning to have some work done.  If they go ahead then almost half our bookgroup will then have Handmade Kitchens, kitchens!

All best

Hi Keith

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the whole team for everything you’ve done in helping us get our kitchen. We have painted it as recommended and as you can see from the pictures looks very nice.

We were nervous at first to buy online and so far away from your shop. Sarina did a lot of research and was so impressed with feedback and the look of your final designs that she was very confident to use you and now we are glad we did. The quality of the hardwood compliments the glass cabinets and sink and fridge units.

We have had many people round to look at the kitchen and they have been very impressed by the look and the design of the kitchen. We think your team were really good in the helping us to get the right look and we are so glad to have used your company and would recommend you to our friends and relatives.

Can I also pass on my thanks to the delivery team, who couldn’t have been nicer. They took the time to talk through the process of painting and sanding the units which really helped get the nice final look. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Overall we are so grateful that your team spent a lot of time with us to discuss the wood type, design, sanding and painting so we could get what we wanted .

We are still delighted with it and always sing your praises.

Dear Myra,

We just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help and patience with us whilst we were choosing our kitchen. It is now fitted and, although not completely painted yet, we’re over the moon with it. The workmanship is fabulous and is just what we wanted…..

We will definitely be recommending you!

Thanks again,

Dear Rachel

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the whole team for everything you’ve done in helping us get our kitchen. It has been installed now and is presently being painted – even in its unfinished state it is beyond what we were daring to hope for. The quality of the cabinets is superb.

Thank you for making the process of ordering so straight forward and stress-less – I was rather nervous at first to buy online and so remotely, living in the north east of England and not really having much confidence in my ability to organise this all, however I would absolutely encourage others to trust you and your team with this and the help and advice you offer. I have recommended you to a number of people already.

Can I also pass on my thanks to the delivery team, who couldn’t have been nicer. They took the time to talk through the delivery and stayed for tea and cake, unlike other delivery teams who seem so rushed and appear inconvenienced. They were an absolute pleasure to meet.

All along the service we have received from you all has been superb, making us feels assured and cared for.

With sincere thanks,

S & JL Aug 2017

Hi Lynne,

Super to meet you this morning. Very many thanks for all your time this morning. That was enormously helpful. Far and away the best kitchen showroom visit we’ve had.

This ALL sounds fabulous to us. The attention to detail with all the aspects of the project is very reassuring too. You’ve made us both very happy and excited about it all.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hi Keith,

I showed my builder, who specialises in kitchens, the units from Handmade Kitchens of Christchurch yesterday, and he was bowled over! He couldn’t believe the quality of manufacturing, and praised your factory and the people that work there. He was particularly impressed by the finish and the construction methods used.

TB July 2017

Hi Keith,

I just wanted to reiterate how exceptional the customer care has been from Handmade Kitchens of Christchurch. We live only a few minutes from the Esher showroom and so I have popped in on many occasions and Lynn and Angela have been outstanding.

They have more kitchen knowledge and willingness to discuss design ideas than in many of the high end showrooms we visited. Kevin has also always had time for queries even though he was not my official sales person.

I’m thoroughly impressed and evangelical so far my first recommendation has already put their deposit down.

Best regards

CL July 2017

Dear Penny,

I contacted Handmade Kitchens in, to be honest, quite a distressed state of mind. I have an unusual shaped kitchen space and another company had designed a kitchen that would incorporate all the items I wanted so I was thrilled. I waited three months for delivery, however, one week before work was due to commence I was  sent a text to tell me that they had measured the dimensions incorrectly and the design they had created wouldn’t fit …. they then walked off the job leaving me with a partially demolished room.  Fortunately for me, a colleague recommended Handmade Kitchens and you saved the day. This was not an easy job to do but your team persevered and continually liaised with my wonderful kitchen fitter David. This afternoon my fabulous kitchen was finally completed with every appliance, odd shaped unit and special recess that I could wish for.  It is not just me that is delighted, I wanted to also let you and the team know that  David has commented that this is the first time that he has worked with you and it has been a very long time since he fitted a kitchen of such quality so he is going to offer you as an option to his clients in future.  I can hardly believe that such a wonderful outcome could arise from a total disaster.  Please thank everyone involved and I will certainly recommend you for years to come.

Kind regards,

Hi Jacky,

I should have said ages ago, I found the whole process painless. You were always incredibly helpful, and the delivery service was faultless.

Above all, the cabinets look brilliant. I will recommend you to lots of people.

We’re really pleased with the kitchen and our entire experience with handmade kitchens.

R&KH Jan 2017

Hope you are well. I have actually been meaning to drop you an email since our kitchen was completed a few months ago but unfortunately work, being a mother and spending time with my family got in the way.

I wanted to thank you for not only the amazing kitchen we purchased from you but also the brilliant service we received.  We have been over the moon with our kitchen, it is everything I hoped it would be and more.  I hunted around for so many months trying to find a company that could give us a product that I had in my head as my dream kitchen but everywhere fell short of offering what I wanted.  Either the product looked nice from outside but inside it was cheap and nasty, they didn’t have the detail that I wanted on the units or they just didn’t offer a colour that I wanted.  So when I found your website I thought it was too good to be true!   

I was very sceptical about spending so much money on a kitchen that I had never looked at but reading reviews and seeing pictures on your site made me decide that I needed to just be brave and place an order.  Well we are so unbelievably happy that we did!  The kitchen is amazing, the quality is incredible and being able to have it painted in the exact colour I wanted was the icing on the cake.  I have recommended you to both friends and family and I know that a couple have already placed orders.  So thank you so much for everything you have done for us.  If we ever move house and need a new kitchen I will be in touch without a seconds thought

Many thanks for all your (the teams) help.

We have bought cabinets off you in the past for our new kitchen and utility room, but are now putting a kitchen into our basement.  If you could give me a quote and some advice for the attached design I would be very grateful.  We are so happy with our own kitchen I also attached a couple of photos for you (the utility is equally as lovely but didn’t look so great with the laundry out!)

Here’s a few photos of our fantastic new kitchen, made by yourselves and fitted by Nathan. Very happy with everything.

Dear everyone at Handmade Kitchens, 

I have finally finished the kitchen in our farmhouse renovation and I just wanted to write to say a massive thank you to you all.  Everyone was amazing through out the whole process.  I think Myra redid my quote about 5 or more times as I changed my mind along the way and fitted everything to my budget! She was very patient and nothing was too much trouble. Any time I had a problem I rang her up and she helped me out,  taking me through the website with her until I found what I was looking for. 

Our build has not been without it’s problems and has been extremely stressful at times but the kitchen was a good experience from start to finish.  I was worried just before it arrived (as everything else was going wrong)that it would not be as good quality as the photos on the web but when it arrived it exceeded my expectations. What I was really impressed with was how solid each unit was and extremely good quality with the wonderful soft closing grass drawers.  They were so beautiful unpainted that I was sorely tempted not to paint them! My larder cupboard is wonderful, I simply love it too. 

I am waxing lyrical but I really was surprised at how brilliant it was.  Friends have come to see the project and they all love the kitchen. One, an interior designer, has just put in an extremely expensive kitchen, 60k for a client and said she thinks thinks this kitchen is a hundred times better quality and is going to put one in her own house. 

I also wanted to big thank you to the brilliant delivery guys, they explained exactly hoe everything worked, fit together and when they saw a mistake I had made on the kick boards and it was not clear which one I had wanted they brought both types free of charge, fantastic service once again.  They were so charming and it was a great conclusion to a fantastic kitchen experience.  

I had had lots of quotes from other companies but I chose handmade kitchens because firstly they looked beautiful but also because your team has the best customer service I have ever received. It was a whole team effort and I am so grateful to you all.  Believe me when i say that it is very rare to get good customer service any where, particularly when dealing with a very expensive and well known kitchen range company which was shocking…! 

Thank you, I have my dream kitchen! 

With very best wishes 

FJ Oct 2015

Dear Julie and Russell, 

You are quite right that I had recommended your work to my neighbour SM and she took delivery of her kitchen a few days earlier. It is being fitted now. 

S is not the first person I have sung your praises so I’m sure she will not be the last customer I will be pleased to send to you.

Dear Penny, Keith and the team at HKD 

Now that our kitchen is almost complete, we wanted to send a note to thank you all for our beautiful kitchen. From our initial discussions over the design and through to the delivery on the day, we cannot fault the service we have received from everyone at HKD. The quality of the product is fantastic, far exceeding our expectations and we are delighted that we have achieved the look we wanted, within budget. A couple of small errors on delivery were quickly rectified and we have the replacement products within two days. Graham, Nathan and Vanessa have also been brilliant at every stage. 

As soon as it’s fully complete we will send over some pictures for the website. 

Many thanks again 

N&J K July 2015

Hi Karen, 

We ordered a kitchen from you a couple of years ago now and have now finally finished! Our renovation was a huge task, the kitchen was such an important part for me and I was determined to do the house justice with a traditional bespoke kitchen. The last thing to do was to put the plinths on and some finishing touches around the kitchen windows which we did a couple of days ago. We have to say how impressed we are and we absolutely love it!  Thank you so much for all of your help. I have attached a couple of photos for you. 

Kind regards

Dear Penny, 

I would like to say how much pleasure my new kitchen gives me everytime I walk into it. I love it and it works so well. It’s totally timeless and my friends mouths literally dropped open when they saw it. The most popular response was that it looked as though it was the pages of a magazine. 

My brother, DS, who has just bought his kitchen from you did so because he fitted mine and was incredibly impressed with the the quality and workmanship. As he is a perfectionist and knows exactly what he is talking about this is high praise indeed.

The kitchen is nearly set up now and looks fab.

Many thanks again for such a lovely product.

Dear Jacky, 

Many apologies for not thanking you sooner, but it was very hectic getting everything ready for xmas! 

We would like to thank you so much for all your help in creating our perfect kitchen. From the first time we visited your showroom, to the day the cabinets were delivered, we couldn’t have been happier with the service. 

You were always polite, extremely helpful and very efficient. You listened carefully to what we wanted to achieve and made several helpful suggestions which ensured that our kitchen is truly wonderful. I will send pictures in a separate email. 

Again, thank you so much, we are just thrilled!
