We are so happy that we put our trust in Joanne and Roman Kitchens. We felt that we were in safe and creative hands right from when we first set foot in the shop. We wanted to knock through the wall between the kitchen and garage and our first idea was to move the kitchen into the garage area. It was one of those light bulb moments and we have never looked back. Thank you so much for helping us realise our dream kitchen!
Honestly, we can’t say a bad word about roman kitchens. They’re professional, courteous and have innovative and modern ideas.
A Big thank you to everyone involved in our new kitchen – from design to the finishing touches – we are really pleased with the outcome. I’m now a woman of the 21st Century!
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.
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.
We would like to thank you all at Roman Kitchens for the excellent service you have provided for us. From your ideas at the design stage, the quality of the equipment and fittings provided to the actual fitting and after sales service you have all been exceptionally efficient and helpful. We are delighted with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend you to future customers. Many Thanks to you all. Best Regards…
From my initial telephone enquiry to after-sales care, the service I have received from Roman Kitchens is second to none.
The team came up with fantastic ideas and Joanne and Jo really understand the practicalities needed in a working kitchen. The whole process from design to installation was smooth, efficient and within budget.
Thoroughly recommend this wonderful independant company to anyone who needs kitchen inspiration ⭐️
To Jo & George,
Many thanks for the completion of our kitchen. We are absolutely thrilled with it! A total transformation! Thank you to you both and to everyone involved for all their hard work. With regards…
How best to describe Roman Kitchens, quality, value and service, this company has all 3 of these. They are absolutely one of the best kitchen companies in essex & we have had the best experience & kitchen to prove it.
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.
Dear Jo, George & all at Roman Kitchens,
Just a short note to say thank you so much for our lovely kitchen. The attention to detail from planning to installation was superb throughout. Thank you again for such a first class job, with special thanks to Geoff on the fitting, he fitted the kitchen in our house as if he was fitting it in his own property. Nothing was too much trouble, his craftsmanship was second to none. Thank you all again…
Dear Joanne & all at Roman Kitchens,
We would like to say a very big thank you to all involved in transforming our kitchen, we are so pleased with everything, especially how quickly and tidy our fitter John did his job. Thank you…
To Roman Kitchens,
Just wanted to say thank you for my lovely new kitchen. Great service from everyone especially my lovely fitter! Thanks again…
From the moment you walk into Roman Kitchens you can tell it is a family run business, the service is personal, friendly & welcoming.
The team asked me what I required from my kitchen and then came up with some great ideas. Some options I would not have thought of myself but when mentioned knew would save me time, effort and look stylish. I had no problems with the installation and was very happy with the finished results.
I would definitely recommend this lovely family ow…ned business.
Thank you very much.
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.
To Roman Kitchens,
Thank you so much for the wonderful new kitchen you designed & fitted for me – “I LOVE IT”. Big thank you to Jo for your design & great ideas & also to Geoff for your excellent workmanship. We will be sure to recommend you to our friends & family. I just need to learn how to cook! Best regards…
If you want a beautiful kitchen planed by a very talented designer and installed by an amazing team, I can definitely recommend Roman Kitchens. Joanne has always been so welcoming and full of great ideas. We absolutely love our new kitchen. Thank you all at Roman Kitchens.
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…
To Roman Kitchens,
Just a short note to say a very big “thank you” for our lovely kitchen. You made everything so easy for us. Our sincere thanks go to Geoff also. He worked very hard & done an excellent job. We will definitely recommend Roman Kitchens to anyone. Thank you all…
Dear Jo, George & all your team,
Thank you so much for our lovely kitchen. We have enjoyed our journey from designing right through to the completion. We have had efficient support all the way with sound advice. Graham has been an amazing fitter. Worked so hard & cleanly, always caring about us.
Thank you all. We are so pleased we chose Roman Kitchens to install our kitchen. Best wishes for continued success…
Shortly after moving to Rayleigh I went round to a friend’s house and she had a beautiful kitchen. It was from Roman Kitchens. I walked past the shop every day when I took my kids to school. It was 20 years later before we did some “minor” work to our house to have our dream family kitchen and Roman Kitchens was one of many companies that quoted for it.
The extension itself did not go according to plan by any means. And to say it was a stressful experience would be putt…ing it mildly. I was studying for post grad exams and on top of that we had personal tragedy in the family which meant me travelling 600 miles every other week.
Joanne and the rest of the staff at Roman Kitchens could not have been more helpful, supportive and patient with me. She was one of a few contractors involved in our build that I trusted to do exactly what they said they would do. But she did more than that. I cannot tell you how much support and reassurance she gave me and how many times she got the samples out for me to decide wall colours, floorings etc. She was spot on with her advice and I trusted her judgement implicitly.
We have an amazing family space and a beautiful kitchen and I would most definitely recommend her and the company.
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…
Dear Jo & George,
Thank you so much for a first class service from start to finish. The kitchen looks fantastic! It’s so easy to keep clean & makes cooking a pleasure again. Your help & experience went a long way to ensure the end result was just what we wanted. Thanks again – Happy New Year to you both & your family. With best wished…
Dear Jo & George,
We would like to thank you very much indeed for all your expertise and hard work in helping us to achieve a magnificent kitchen we can enjoy for many years to come. Our thanks also to Geoff who bore the brunt of the work and also to Graham who kindly tied up the loose ends. Thank you all…
What a relief when we met with Joanne, after being recommended by our neighbours. She really listened to what we wanted, worked with the space and came up with a design, that with only a few minor tweaks was what we wanted. The fitter and trades she used were great, all done on time and in budget. We have had our kitchen over a year and I still walk in and smile at how good it looks and how easy it is to work in. Thoroughly recommended for personal, friendly and professional service.
Having spent some time trawling round Essex for a new kitchen and having had a stack of quotes, we came across Rotpunkt kitchens in another shop. That didn’t work out so we found another supplier in Roman Kitchens.
From the minute we walked into the shop we were impressed by the whole professionalism and overall attitude of the outfit. Nothing was too much effort and there was no hard sell. The kitchen quality was well above average and the quote was very competitive.
Joann…e, the designer, really does know what she’s talking about. I would recommend you listen to her and follow her advice. Our layout really works.
We had our kitchen installed November 2017. The guys were totally professional and respected our home throughout.
As in all jobs like this, there were a few unforeseen issues. These were dealt with with no quibble and no fuss.
I would have no hesitation in fully recommending this company. It has been a pleasure to have them.
To all at Roman Kitchens,
Just to say thank you for all your help, support and advice in creating our new kitchen. It’s absolutely beautiful and all your plans and ideas have worked out marvellously. Thank you again for a job so well done…
Dear Joanne, Jo, George & Geoff,
Thank you all so much for such a wonderful kitchen and for the friendly and supportive service throughout. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to all our friends. A special “thank-you” to Joanne who helped us so much and made choosing everything painless. Thank you all once again! With love from…
Dear Jo & George,
Just to say thank you so much for our kitchen. We are really pleased with the new look. Many Thanks, with love from…
Many Thanks for all your help. We think John did a very good job and we are very pleased with the result. Best Wishes…
Dear Mr & Mrs Burgess & Jo,
We love the kitchen and so does everyone who comes in. Special thanks to Geoff for the perfect job he did fitting it. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter whether it is an expensive or inexpensive kitchen – it is the fitting that really makes the job. Hope you keep going for many years ( for when I move house!) Regards…
Thank you ever so much for my lovely kitchen! It’s even better than I imagined it would be..You have given me excellent customer service from start to finish & I’m already recommending you to my customers…!! Thank you once again from…
We would like to say thank you for your designed with my kitchen, we are very pleased with the new style & colour. Thank you again for helping us to decide & choose the kitchens appliances and costs. Kind Regards…
To Roman Kitchens,
Thank you all so very much for making our kitchen look so beautiful. Joanne has done a fantastic job with her design & we would recommend you to everyone! Best wishes…
To Joanne & Team,
Just a note to say thank you for the amazing job that you have done for our kitchen. Wish you all the best! Regards…
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for a wonderful kitchen.
Great service lovely people really helpful & considerate. When after only 18 months of having our kitchen fitted we were flooded out Jo & the team went all out helping us to get back to where we were, cannot think of them more highly thanks for everything once again.
To Roman Kitchens,
For your help & patience in designing our new kitchen – it works! After only 2 days we can all find everything. Also for the lovely surprise gift, it is much appreciated. Kind Regards…
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.
Dear Joanne & everyone at Roman Kitchens. Have you ever known an extension so fraught with problems as ours?! Well hopefully no-one will go through the pain, disappointment & frustration of dealing with trades alongside personal tragedy of losing a loved one of cancer. However I felt that I could trust you & Roman Kitchens to bring the final bits of this nightmare together and make something beautiful & functional. So I would like to thank you, Joanne, for your support, guidance & patience designing & installing our lovely new kitchen. It has made our house back into a home again.Without fail, throughout this whole process you have contacted me back when I had a query, turned up when arranged & dealt with every question I raised.
I would not hesitate to recommend you or Roman Kitchens to anyone else.
Thank you so much for everything.
Gill & Phil & Family.
Please pass on my heartfelt gratitude to Dean (carpenter) Brián (electrician)
It is six months on since Roman Kitchens completed the installation of our kitchen and we could not be happier. From start to finish we have been thrilled at the care and attention we have received from the Roman Kitchens team.
We believe the success of our project began at the planning stage. Joanne took great care to understand our needs and the limitations of the available space. From this analysis she suggested several possible solutions going far beyond the ideas we had come up with. Indeed her suggestion of removing a partition wall to make a family room was inspired.
Joanne spent hours at this planning stage and her 3D visual presentations really helped us ‘vision’ the finished product.
All proposals were fully costed throughout and any changes were ‘priced in’ immediately. We did not expect, nor did we want, a cheap kitchen, but were surprised how affordable things were. So much so that we took advantage of Joanne’s price matching policy to source all appliances from her.
Due to the nature of the project we needed extensive works beyond the fitting of the fitting of the kitchen.
We took advantage of Joanne’s contact list to get quotes from trades people she recommended. However I felt it prudent to obtain comparative quotes from elsewhere and as pleasantly surprised to find how competitive the Roman Kitchen’s team were.
It was our bad luck that during the completion of the project we suffered the worst spring weather imaginable (the beast from the east). To make things worse we caught the flu! We will be forever grateful to the Roman Kitchens team for their support and attention during this challenging time. All their attention given at the design stage bore fruit, as the trades worked tirelessly and independently to achieve our vison.
We feel the quality and accuracy of work at this stage did much to facilitate the work of the kitchen fitter and to the success of the project.
As installation progressed we were more and more pleased with the quality of the ‘Roc Punkt’ product, often it was the small things that impressed. All the things you don’t see, fittings, connectors, etc. were superb.
Completion was exactly to time, remarkable given the weather conditions and the difficulties getting around and we were most pleased with the excellence of the finished product. More so as time has passed, the project, cabinets and appliances have far excelled our expectations and we could not be happier.
I would unreservedly recommend Roman Kitchens. I would strongly advise taking time to get things right at the planning stage. Listen to Joanne, she knows her stuff. All things being equal I would recommend using trades people as suggested, so much so that I am using these contacts for future projects.
We have recently completed a large home renovation project which included the construction of a full width rear extension and the full replacement and redesign of our kitchen in its entirety. We engaged with Joanne at Roman Kitchens early on in the process having received positive recommendations about this long established local business. We found Joanne to be very positive and excited about working with us on this project and upon visiting us she provided some fantastic insight and experience of the art of the possible within our space.
After measuring up the space, Joanne from Roman went about creating some designs and invited us back to the showroom for a consultation. We were very impressed with Joanne’s practical knowledge and industry experience and she was able to suggest a variety of innovations and ideas that otherwise we would not have considered. We worked with Joanne over a number of months to finalise our kitchen design and plan and despite our constantly changing requirements and ideas, Joanne did not complain but instead helped to shape our thinking, so we could get to a design which was perfect in meeting our needs.
Joanne at Roman provided us with sample doors, work surfaces and specific product information relating to appliances and all this was done without fuss. This was particularly useful as we were able to take sample doors and finishes into other stores to select tiles and other furnishings.
Joanne at Roman recommended electricians, builders, plasterers and even flooring teams who work in conjunction with her business and to be fair all of them worked as a solid team to deliver a remarkable kitchen finish.
The installation process which arguably can be the most stressful period of the entire project was managed with minimal fuss and as the home owners we did not feel any stress or burden whatsoever. The whole Roman installation team were brilliant, the old kitchen was removed simply, the new kitchen was constructed and the finished product is nothing short of amazing. We found the craftsmanship was superb and the kitchen has a showroom perfect finish, the Roman kitchens fitter (Dean) was a true master craftsman and it is evident he knows the trade intimately.
On a couple of occasions we encountered some unforeseen challenges in the build process. These are the sorts of moments where you really test a company when you are spending a vast some on big ticket purchases like Kitchens, and I am pleased to say Roman Kitchens delivered 100%. On these few occasions, they confidentely assessed the challenge and came up with best practice solutions before we could even start to think about panicking. When you have a busy job and other things to focus on this is a priceless element of the overall service. George from Roman has over 40 years experience in this industry and he worked with our fitter and delivered seamless solutions to complex problems.
We are totally satisfied with our new kitchen and are so pleased we chose Roman for this purchase. We bought new furniture, new appliances and accessories and everything that Joanne at Roman recommended works perfectly, just as she said it would. Upon embarking on the selection of a kitchen company, we visited most of the local firms and assessed them on there relative merits. Many others in the Essex and surrounding areas will talk about being one stop shop’s, being experts in the trade and talk about the various industry accreditations they hold – my advice is don’t believe the sales pitch – ask questions and test the claims. In summary, Roman Kitchens are a business that have been established in a small High Street position for 40 years, they have numerous satisfied clients (us being one of them) and I have no hesitation to give this business the highest recommendation.
“Our kitchen project wasn’t straightforward, it involved construction and building works before we even got to the exciting stage of choosing a kitchen. We did our homework and investigated various options and visited other kitchen designers before choosing Roman kitchens. Our first visit to the showroom made our decision easy, Joanne is intuitive, helpful, professional and friendly. She put us totally at ease, we had drawings of the space we had, and discussed what we were hoping to achieve. Joanne has great knowledge and vision, enabling us to utilise the space we created to maximum effect. We had total confidence in Joanne and her team, with what felt like a very daunting project, nothing was too much trouble. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. We have a wonderful family space that is the hub of the house. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Joanne and her team. “
"Roman designed and fitted the kitchen in our previous house. We have since recommended them to friends and family who have also been pleased with their finished kitchen project. We recently completed a renovation to our current house and decided to go back to Roman to design and install our new kitchen. Joanne is one of the best designers around. She asked us to complete a detailed questionnaire which gave her a good understanding of our requirements. (The only company who did this).We had a wide variety of finishes to choose from but Joanne was not afraid to give her opinion or recommendation as to what would work well. In fact the doors on the island were a brave decision colour wise but we were so glad we listened to her as they are our favourite! She made sure she liaised with our architect and builder before foundations had even been laid. This made the project run more smoothly and she didn’t have to bother us with any queries she had regarding walls and electrics. I would recommend getting in touch as early as possible as the kitchen design was fundamental to the layout of the ground floor. We are over the moon with our finished project and we would definitely continue to recommend Roman kitchens as a great local family run company who are easy to work with and have really great staff who have worked for them for a long time which says it all."
"We had our kitchen designed and fitted by Roman kitchens in 2011. They worked closely with us to get the right kitchen we wanted within our budget. We didn’t want an off the shelf kitchen so we spent time with Joanne and team and they worked tirelessly to achieve the look we wanted using innovative ideas and recommendations. 8 years on it still looks as good as new, amazing quality and timeless design."
Roman kitchens have one of the best design services in our local area of Essex.
And to compliment there design they supply 1st class kitchens that will cater for everyone’s needs.
With an amazing team that will fit the kitchen in and around your desired time scale.
We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again, and have recommend them to our friends on many occasions.
Joanne and her team designed and fitted our kitchen nearly 10 years ago and it still looks like new! Fabulous personal service from start to finish. Have recommended and am still recommending to friends and family. If you want the kitchen of your dreams- this is the place to go!!
From start to finish Joanne and her team were fantastic. When designing our kitchen she took into account our needs as a family and even made our island and worktops extra high to accommodate our height! Their after sales have been very good too - even 18 months after the kitchen was fitted Roman Kitchens have been great at sorting out a minor issue. Throughly recommend.
From our first meeting to our kitchen being finished Joanne and her team were excellent. Joanne's design was spot on to what we needed as a family. I now have dream kitchen I have always wanted.
Chris the fitter went the extra mile ensuring any problems we had with the fit were sorted and a solution found.
Cant recommend Roman Kitchens enough.
Joanne created a beautiful design for our kitchen and utility room, maximising the space whilst increasing the light in the room. She suggested ideas we had not thought of, after asking how we used our kitchen. The whole team worked brilliantly, from the builder to kitchen fitter and electrician - very professional and quickly came up with solutions when snags occurred. I would highly recommend Roman Kitchens.
Fantastic customer service from the whole team, nothing is ever too much.
In fact one problem we had before we even had a chance to raise it with Jo she was on the phone saying I know that's not correct we will sort it!! All work men involved were excellent crafts men, tidy and considerate of our family. Our kitchen is absolutely brillant and has opened up our house so much more.
We had a great experience with Jo and Roman Kitchens and highly recommend their service and product. Jo's design of the kitchen was excellent, modern and stylish, just what we were looking for. Install and fitting also excellent service, top tradesmen. We highly recommend.
We have completed two large building projects now and we have used Roman Kitchens on both occasions and we are very pleased with the outcome and the quality of the service and communication throughout. If you want a personal, dedicated approach to kitchen design with support throughout the building process, I would happily recommend Joanne and her team.
