The furniture workmanship is perfect

We have used Great British Kitchens & Interiors before and knew who to go to for fitted furniture in our new property. From start to finish the staff are professional, making sure everything was designed to our requirements. The company fitted some bedroom furniture, a contemporary unit for our lounge and an island for our kitchen. It all looks stunning!!

The furniture workmanship is perfect, they even matched the colour of the island to my kitchen cabinets. We would like to thank Vince, Stephen and Chris and the two guys who fitted the furniture. An excellent job and service from start to finish. Will definitely recommend and use them again, however as their furniture lasts forever it might be a while!

We cannot recommend them highly enough

We were delighted with the excellent face lift to our 18 year old Great British Kitchen. Very high quality work from long serving and experienced fitters (including the original fitter), all very pleasant and friendly; they left everything very clear and tidy at the end of the day.

Their work could not be faulted 18 years ago, nor could it today. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Great service from start to finish

Great service from start to finish and extremely pleased with our new kitchen. The few problems that arose (as expected for such a big project) were dealt with quickly, quietly and professionally.

We particularly liked the fact that all the various workmen involved (and there were many) were professional and as unobtrusive as possible.

We would definitely recommend this company.

Rebecca Teather

We recommend this company highly

Very positive experience. Jack and his team have meticulous attention to detail.

Everything went smoothly from beginning to end and the finish was fantastic.

We recommend this company highly.

Great kitchen and wonderful aftercare

Great kitchen and wonderful aftercare.

We’ve had the kitchen for 5 years and had a slight issue with a handle. There was no fuss and within 24 hours we were booked to have it replaced that week.

Very professional and would highly recommend GBK&I from start to finish.

Absolutely delighted with the service that we have received

We first approached Great British Kitchens & Interiors on the recommendation of a friend when we were planning the comprehensive refurbishment of our house, which included the creation of a new kitchen area. We met Vince Hone at his showroom and he spent considerable time with us demonstrating the range of units and appliances available. He then visited our property and provided us with a suggested layout for the for the new kitchen area together with an indication of costs.

Having satisfied ourselves that Vince was the best person to guide us through the design process due to his extensive knowledge of the kitchen industry we then worked closely together to refine the layout and select the most appropriate style of units, colour scheme and electrical appliances to suit our requirements. At the end of this exercise Vince provided us with a firm quotation, which he honoured to the end notwithstanding several minor variations along the way.

Once we had placed the order with Vince he worked closely with our builder to ensure that everything was correctly coordinated in preparation for the kitchen installation. The installation itself was carried out to a very high standard with very close attention to detail. Once the kitchen was fully installed Vince’s son, Jack (a qualified chef), invited us to a cooking demonstration to familiarise us with the appliances that we had purchased. This was particularly helpful and the resulting meal that we were served matched the excellence of the service that we have received throughout.

You will see from the above that Great British Kitchens & Interiors acted with great professionalism throughout the entire process and we are absolutely delighted with the service that we have received and the quality of our new kitchen, which has been the subject of many highly complementary comments from visitors to our house.

A fabulous experience

Having had GBK&I fit a bespoke kitchen at a previous house over 10 years ago and been overjoyed with the service and end result, when we recently moved and needed a similar re-fit we had absolutely no hesitation in contacting them and asking for their input.

From the planning phase right through to completion and after-sales, the service remains first class. Planning was done at the showroom and on-site and the designer’s proactive insight was invaluable in making the most of space and coming up with a layout which focussed on convenience. The visual mock-ups from multiple angles gave us a clear idea of how things would look and allowed us to assess some of our choices with confidence.

The fitting was carried out to the customary high standard and within agreed timeframes and all aspects of redecoration where lighting etc. was moved was handled without fuss. To the extent there were any minor snags, these were immediately addressed and we are left with a perfect result.

After sales has continued to the same vein, even to the extent that a demonstration was arranged to acquaint us with the leaps forward in technology and increased functionality of the new appliances.

All in all, a fabulous experience with a company which we would have absolutely no hesitate in recommending to others.

BRILLIANT! is an understatement

We have been considering having our very small kitchen replaced for many years. We were concerned that having this done would require new wiring, plumbing, removal of an internal wall and pulling down a lathe and plaster ceiling not to mention a complete new floor and a new consumer unit for the electrics which meant having the hall floor uprooted. So with all these “mountains” to overcome we have dithered for quite a few years worrying who to contact from good electricians, carpenters, plumbers, plasterers and decent builders you can see why it has taken so long.

We visited the showrooms at GBK&I and met Jack Hone and his father Vincent and told him of our dilemma the magic words that made us decide to go ahead was “WE PROJECT MANAGE THE WHOLE JOB”.

Well six weeks later after starting and hardly any mess we have a hand built kitchen with quartz worktops, new ovens, dishwasher, washing machine, man fridge and massive American double door fridge and a lovely AMTICO floor all without lifting a finger. BRILLIANT! is an understatement.

I would recommend this company and the service they offer is good old fashioned, honest, superbly executed workmanship.

If anyone would like to see this result for themselves my wife and I have no problem having them visit to see the excellent kitchen that has been put in.

Fully installed on time and on budget

It really is a pleasure to review a company when you have had such a good experience with them, not once but twice! We have recently had our new kitchen installed and had no hesitation of returning to GBK&I who had fitted a kitchen, bathroom and wardrobes for us previously. This time around the contemporary scheme was drawn up meticulously by Jack and Vince taking into account our wishes and cost constraints and the scheme was fully installed on time and on budget.

The process was seamless which just shows what a professional organisation with a wealth of experience GBK&I are. I cannot speak more highly of Bill the fitter who was calm and always considerate of our family life still going on around the kitchen fit.

The kitchen has had many compliments from friends and family and it has been everything we hoped of the upgrade. I have no hesitation in recommending the team at GBK&I. They take the ordinary to the extraordinary and are always a pleasure to deal with.

The workmen we had around were so respectful, tidy and friendly

We had used GBK&I to install a new kitchen in our old house 11 years ago so we knew that their work is of a high quality, they are easy to do business with and they deliver to plan and budget. For this reason, we engaged Vince and Jack to build our new kitchen in our new house. Vince and Jack were very responsive to spec requirements, flexible and came up with some great ideas.

They are both very professional and friendly so engender trust which is important when you are going to spend a lot of money. As before, we are delighted with our new kitchen and the service provided by GBK&I. There are invariably a few minor snagging issues after such a big job but Jack and Vince sorted these out very quickly, no problem. The workmen we had around were so respectful, tidy and friendly so no problem with them being in your home at all.

I would happily recommend GBK&I as they take care of everything making it as stress free for you the buyer as possible.

The service they provide is excellent and the quality of the kitchen is great.

Even better than I imagined and I am delighted

Hi Vince,

Now that the kitchen is finished and paid for I thought I’d write to say thank you! Every one has been lovely and did a great job so please pass on my thanks to all the boys, especially Gary who had to put up with my endless squeaks of excitement for weeks. The kitchen itself is fantastic; I knew it was going to be lovely but it’s even better than I imagined and I am delighted … and still squeaking.

So once again, thank you!

I know I’ve still got the bookcase to be done but it’s dawned on me that as I’m away when it’s being built, I probably won’t have an excuse to see you…I wish that wasn’t the case.

Take care,

Renz

Thank you for the efficient and friendly way John refurbished our kitchen

Dear Vince,

Just a note to thank you for the efficient and friendly way John refurbished our kitchen last week. I like to think none of us have changed in the twenty one years since our kitchen was installed, but sadly it’s probably the kitchen that shows the least signs of wear! With its new hinges and drawer fixings facelift our kitchen looks very smart and I continue to be extremely pleased that we chose your company back in 1995!

Very best wishes,

Elaine

We are very pleased with the outcome

Dear Stephen,

We would just like to drop you a line to send you our appreciation on the completion of our new kitchen. We are very pleased with the outcome thank you for the design work. Please pass on our thanks to Barry whose workmanship was very professional.

Although we still have a little bit of work to do to finish the floor, hopefully we will complete that this weekend.

Our thanks are also for the fix and the spare lid!

Kind regards,

Eric and Pam

The wow factor

To anyone considering a new kitchen.

The whole Great British Kitchens experience has been very professional and to a high standard, from John’s initial home visit and design, to Vince’s final check and inspection. The process is thorough and efficient and at no point did we feel pressurised.

The complete kitchen arrived in one delivery. Our fitter, Jeremy was always punctual, friendly and a conscientious and tidy worker.

We are extremely pleased with our new kitchen which definitely has the wow factor! We would higly recommend Great British Kitchens to anybody contemplating a new kitchen.

Thank you all very much for your input.

Regards,

Andrew Knapp

Really great people who are really professional and do a good job

I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my new kitchen!

It looks really great!

I’d also like to say how brilliant Jeremy, Ben etc have been. Really great people who are really professional and do a good job!

Thank you for organising it all for me!

I have to pinch myself

Hi Vince,

I am so absolutely thrilled and delighted with my new kitchen – everything about it works perfectly and it looks fantastic too – I have to pinch myself every time I walk into it! So I really want to ask you to thank everyone at GBK who had a hand in making it all happen (which I think was pretty much your entire team in the end”) and I also want to thank you for your advice, help and attention to detail along the way, as well as for recommending Ben the decorator who was great.

[…] it would be lovely if you could call in sometime and see the finished product. It has received much admiration from friends.

Many thanks again.

Best wishes,

Gill
