Testimonials

To Roman Kitchens,

Honestly, we can’t say a bad word about roman kitchens. They’re professional, courteous and have innovative and modern ideas.

They are very reasonably priced,
they have it all – quality value service!

Mr & Mrs Priest

Dear Everyone at Roman Kitchens,

We used Roman kitchens for design and installation of new kitchen. Expert honest advice from start, even some tips to save money and some handy advice on design.

The kitchen installation was on time, with no mess and excellent quality – we still have comments on how good it looks nearly 5 years since being installed!

We couldn’t recommend this kitchen company enough; we would definitely use again.

Rob & Kate

Dear All,

Joanne at Roman kitchens was excellent. She was able to provide some excellent ideas re: the design to suit our needs as a family, pointing out good things that work well from experience and also highlighting any issues we may have with ideas we came up with. Her design was the only one I didn’t want to change!

She was very accommodating re: borrowing samples but also didn’t put any pressure on, which was nice!

Once we decided to go ahead the dates were made to suit us taking into consideration that we had young children. All issues were dealt with quickly and hassle free. Would definitely recommend.

Mr & Mrs Grigg

Dear Roman Kitchens,

The quality of the furniture is superb & the installation team were extremely tidy and professional.

A great company to work with and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new kitchen.

Mr & Mrs Duggan

Dear Joanne,

When my partner and I decided to have our kitchen and utility room refitted we had a reasonable idea of how we wanted it to be laid out and the style we were looking for. Joanne at Roman Kitchens helped us to refine our ideas and pointed out, with clear knowledge and experience of other designs she had worked on, what would work and what would not. Having computer generated graphics was a major help in being able to visualise what the finished kitchen would look like – and it is just like the graphics illustrated it would be! 


Joanne also assisted us in choosing our new appliances. I see that our oven is used in the Great British Bake-off but I doubt it will really help me produce better cakes, though. 


Throughout the project Joanne kept us informed; the breakdown and refit was completed within 3 weeks, bar some minor snags (you have to expect some snags), which have been thoroughly resolved promptly and efficiently. The disruption to our household was kept to a minimum and the standard of work is high. 

Our kitchen is now complete and dressed and we are thrilled with it. 


We would certainly recommend Roman Kitchens for their quality, design and professionalism.

Angela McMillan

Dear Roman Kitchens,

Very professional yet friendly service. Jo really listened to my ideas and designed and supplied a kitchen that matched our needs and budget.

Although we actually employed a builder to fit the kitchen, the team at Roman Kitchens maintained a real interest in the project until it was complete. George visited us on a number of occasions to advise our builder (with no additional cost to us).

Everything supplied was of the highest quality and a year later my kitchen still looks fantastic. We would thoroughly recommend this company.

Janet Mansbridge

Dear Joanne,

Wow we are so pleased with our new kitchen, in fact it is fabulous. Joanne, it was a pleasure coming in to see you and plan our kitchen. You came up with lots of great ideas that work brilliantly. We will miss popping in for a chat and cup of tea. Josh & Kira loved using your pens for drawing. Geoff is an absolute asset, he was always polite and extremely hard working and it was great to see someone taking such pride in their work. Thank you…

Sarah, Pete, Josh & Kira

To Roman Kitchens,

We are thrilled with our new kitchen. It is absolutely fab! The whole process from planning through to installation was painless, totally professional and faultless. Thank you…
