"Katy Baillie Testimonial"

"I am delighted with our new kitchen, as you know it was a bit more than I had intended to spend, but your design was thoughtful and clearly much better use of space than the other designs I had been looking at.

Your advice was invaluable, and I'm definitely pleased you persuaded me to go for the stone rather than the wood.

The installation was great - very good attention to detail and your installation team were very helpful and appeared to take pride in a job well done.

Essentially, the planning stage was great, straightforward and helpful, the installation was precise and careful, and I have been left with a kitchen I love. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to others, and I'm glad I chose to buy my kitchen from you.

Many thanks

"Lili Prais Testimonial"

"I fear my words alone may fail to confer adequately my level of enthusiasm for Colin and all the team at Development Direct. If I could do a dance to show you, then I would!

What can I say - they were whole-heartedly beyond brilliant. From the start, Colin and his team undertook my project with a level of detail and skill that was startling. The space they had to work with in my kitchen required a considered approach and a keen design eye. I got so much more than I wished for.

I just knew he would come up with an amazing design and he certainly didn't disappoint. Michael my partner who is usually so difficult to please loved the design so much, he didn't want to change a thing! We trusted everything they suggested from there on and this trust really paid off as the design detailing was magnificent.

From the drawing table through to completion - every stage was carried out with the utmost professionalism and artistry.

"Testimonial of Silver Storic Director of Argento Property LTD"

"I would like to personally congratulate Colin and his team on their latest string of awards which are very justly deserved.

We have been using Development Direct for almost 10 years now to supply and fit kitchens for the majority of our development projects.

During this time we have always had our expectations exceeded with genuine cutting-edge design ideas, backed up with a knowledgeable and experienced team that always deliver an exceptional end product and service that we demand for all our property investment clients.

When we need to take our investment properties to another level, we always know we can rely on Development Direct to design kitchens and bathrooms that are that bit more special yet at a competitive price to increase the value of the properties for our clients.

It’s genuinely reassuring to know that not only are we working with the best local company but also the best nationally

"Mike Stoane Testimonial"

"Dear Mr Kitchen,

It was a great experience working with you all and the result is brilliant, (if a little girlie for me) Jo loves it and that’s what matters..... It’s a joy to clean. It’s well laid out of course, with everything being close at hand, despite it being a big room. Visually, you’ve struck a balance between simple functionality and swishy bling. Even the touch latches have stopped annoying me!

Many thanks to you, to Jenny, Sean, Andrew and co for your first rate attention, customer service and for a great result at a no nonsense price. You are by a long way the best kitchen company I have ever experienced and as you know as a designer it was always going to be difficult for me to find a designer that I knew was going to do the right thing. I dreaded doing the whole thing but actually really enjoyed it in the end!
Thanks again.

You’re quite a special bunch.
Mike Stoane"
