Hi All,

As per title, Looking for some kitchen supplier recommendations that do supply only?

Thanks in advance,

Callum

Plenty of suggestions for decent quality kitchen but define high-end, it means different things to different people.

It really comes down to budget. 5,10,20,30K+?

I fully agree with wine~o, after doing a fair amount of searching for handle less white cabinets that were not a gloss finish and had the option of 900 high wall cabinets and various other options , we are going to go with DIY kitchens . Com.
Initially my wife was sceptical because she wanted to go to a showroom and see the products first hand and many people visit their showroom at the factory and talk with the sales people. Whilst I was up for a lengthy drive to see the kitchens and discuss what we wanted , my good lady wife decided it was too far to go.
We have only just moved house and our planned extension won't be built until next year so I can't tell you about our experience with the company yet , but I feel certain that the quality of their units will be a whole lot better than some that are available from the big stores.

The web site and reviews are pretty good so have a look and whatever you decide, at least it is another option to consider.

Good luck
Mike

I ended up going with DIY Kitchens. I got Howdens in to quote for a 16 unit kitchen. Took them 9 days from getting the measurements to making a plan, 20 seconds to reply that they were then working ona quote, 7 days for the quote to finally appear and 2 days before they were asking if I wanted it or not.

Oh, and it was a "This is our normal trade price, this is our sale price and this is our early bird price".

Priced it all up myself on DIY Kitchens in a couple of days with the room planner, they were running a 10% discount and they have a wider choice of door colours so they won in the end.

Not being delivered till the end of November though. Only got the units from them, worktop will come from Worktop Express as again they've got 10% off this month.

Just a small follow up.

The DIY Kitchens stuff arrived on Friday and I'm well pleased I paid the extra for the 2 man delivery. It was p*ssing with rain and dark and they got it all in (5 wall units, 3 tall units and 7 base units + end panels, plinths, handles etc) without any issues. Most of my base units have 3 or 5 drawers in so since it all arrives already built they were HEAVY.

All excellently packaged, only damage was to one corner on all 4 wall cabinet end panels where they look like they were all bounced together somehow. The panels come too long and too deep as standard so its not actually an issue, but they are refunding me some money anyway.

Very very pleased with the cabinets and everything. The doors were painted in one of Farrow & Balls colours and look great too.

Only issues we've had with them were 4 small drawer fronts were out of stock despite ordering 6 weeks before the delivery date I'd picked. They contacted me to say it would be a further 9 weeks for them, that they were sorry and that they felt just as put out as I did. I jumped up and down and explained that it would be ME with a hole in my kitchen and that 9 weeks wasn't close to good enough and that I wanted the cabinet that's 100mm wider (about £10 dearer I think) gratis instead of waiting 9 weeks. Stunningly they came back and will have the drawer fronts with us within 2 weeks of the original delivery! Much better.

Also while opening everything I noticed one of the 800mm drawer fronts was missing. By Monday when I went to contact them about it all they'd emailed me and apologised saying it split when they were assembling and they'd have a new one here in a week.

Took ages to get it all unwrapped and the dining room, already full of worktop and appliances, was then covered in cardboard and bubble wrap.

Should do a build thread/review thing I suppose.

Delivered
