Great Kitchens, Great Prices, Great Staff – What more can I say, very pleased we found you and used you.

L Dupree

We are so glad we were recommended to Classic Kitchens Direct – we were just about to buy from one of their competitors and just happened to find them by chance.

I can only thank god we did, the kitchen is great, cabinets are great and the whole design process and getting what we wanted was relatively easy.

We just love our kitchen, we cant thank you and your team enough, we had a few hiccups with our builder installing it, but you guys were amazing and sorted the extra bits and replacements we needed really quickly, which is very much appreciated. We have already recommended you to our friends, relatives, postman, and anyone else that will listen to me. Thank you.

We originally sent out quote requests to a few companies, Classic Kitchens Direct was the first to get back to us with a plan and quote, They also turned out to be the most friendly and helpful, and also were one of the cheapest, for what is also a superior product. I am not sure how you do it, but glad you do, Thank you we love our kitchen.

We had quotes from probably five different places we found on Google. On the face of it they all seemed to offer very similar products for very similar prices, but we took the time to go and visit them all and see the showrooms.
I am really glad we did, the difference in quality was just astounding.

I had a kitchen from Classic Kitchens Direct for my new extension, the kitchen is lovely and everyone that see’s it is just bowled over.
We had a few problems on site, mainly due to us using our “builder” to fit the kitchen, CKD had done a quote for their guys to fit for us, but it was a few hundred pounds more than the builder quoted, so I went with the builder, This as I found out to my cost was a mistake.
He “fitted” it but we weren’t happy so I spoke to CKD and agreed that they would send their guys to look for me, within 5 minutes of them arriving I wished I had gone down this route the first time. They rectified all the issues within a few hours, and made the kitchen look so much better – Levelled doors that had been fitted incorrectly, aligned drawers, etc. If we move in the future I will definitely buy another kitchen and definitely use their recommended fitters.

Excellent service from Classic Kitchens Direct from bespoke design through manufacture and delivery. The product build quality is superb and the attention to detail excellent. You may pay a bit more than other mainstream kitchen suppliers but it worth it. Would highly recommend using this company.

I used Classic Kitchens for my new kitchen, as I wanted lots of bespoke features I had found on different websites.
I struggled to find anyone to do this, but CKD took it all in their stride and did everything I wanted and more.
The reaction of people that come into my kitchen is always the same now - they just stop and say Wow.....
I love it

We want to thank Alan and Martin for their support in making our dream kitchen a reality. Martin has been very patient in supporting us from very beginning with design element and product selection through multiple iterations. Unlike major Kitchen retailers, we always felt valued and listened to as we discussed our ideas and plans, even after the order was placed. We were very specific about our requirements and brought a lot of different design ideas together. Their attention to details and pride they take in ensuring they deliver exactly what we, as customer, wanted was instrumental in our decision to go with their service. Finally, when we had the kitchen delivered, any teething issue was dealt with by Alan promptly and to our full satisfaction. Thank you both.

I am getting my house ready to be sold on the open market and desperately needed my kitchen updated. Contacted classic kitchens who were very speedy and efficient.

Installation was all done with all the right covid measures in place too.

Highly recommended!

Steven H

Delighted with our Classic Kitchens Direct kitchen. The design and planning stage was very straightforward with no pressure. Passing layouts back and forth till we were 100% happy. And the units themselves are top quality. Recommended

CKD are a great option if you are looking for an inexpensive hand build kitchen.
We are very pleased with ours and it looks much more expensive than it was.
The people we dealt with during the process were very helpful and very flexible - I would definitely recommend.

Matthew A

I had a boiler case made by Classic Kitchens Direct for our kitchen-dining room. It is cleverly designed, disguised as a wine rack (and can be used as a wine rack so very useful too), and very beautifully made. The staff are very kind and helpful throughout the process, from the stage of consultation, quotation, and also especially helpful when I had an issue with the delivery I arranged myself to pick it up. Highly recommended.

Daisuke Y

We love our kitchen from classic kitchens direct. It is much admired by all our friends. Particularly pleased with our bespoke larder cupboard that fits in perfectly.

We had a few quotes from other companies, some of which were part finished (Not painted or lacquered), and although these were a bit cheaper, we really didn’t relish the thought of having to finish the kitchen painting ourselves. We then found these guys and had a quote from them.
The cost was really competitive when we worked out what it would cost for us to paint ourselves, so we ordered and I have to say we are delighted.
The cabinets are stunning, the finish is excellent and way better than we could have achieved ourselves.

Joshua N

Absolutely delighted with the kitchen. Looks fantastic and feels really solid. Alan was incredibly patient with us during the design phase as well.

We recently bought some cabinets from Classic Kitchens Direct. Everything was easy to understand, went smoothly and was delivered on time.The products are great quality, and everyone that sees them asks where we got them. I would recommend them to all, I found their products and services were wonderful.

Having recently moved into a period house one of our key requirements was to install a good quality kitchen that complimented the look and feel of our house. We looked at numerous kitchens but couldn't quite decide that they were worth pursuing as they didn't seem to be worth the money (given it was pretty much chip board from China). Having convinced my husband to miss his weekly game of rugby to attend the showroom in Bournemouth was a challenge in itself! But as soon as we walked into the showroom we knew that it was the right decision to have made. We ordered a kitchen from there later that week, they even pushed delivery through for us to receive it before Christmas. The quality of the kitchen is outstanding, we absolutely love it and get lots of compliments from friends and family. I also loved that you could pick any colour and it arrives freshly painted in the colour of your choosing. Alan was great to deal with too, he was extremely helpful and very accommodating. I'd recommend buying a kitchen from CKD they are truly one of the best kitchen companies on the market.

Ellen L

Absolutely delighted with both the product and service. The cabinets are superb quality and built exceptionally well. The showroom consultant, who was immensely helpful, went through an number of kitchen layout ideas with us and made suggestions as to style and finish that would complement our home. We also needed some bespoke cabinetry made which was not a problem at all. Delivery went smoothly and the cabinets look and fit superbly in our kitchen. We had looked at "off-the-shelf" kitchens by big name companies but the quality was no match compared to CKD. You obviously pay more for solid wood and hand-made but you get a premium product for your money, so it's actually much better value for money than the big high street brands. Really could not be more pleased.
