Do you deliver and install your granite work surfaces to Essex , with a kitchen ?
Hi Lesley, we deliver kitchens all over the UK and our worktop partner, can also fit a Granite worktop, in Essex, once the units are in place. More information on this can be found here.
Is it possible to fit an 800mm pan draw unit (1) within an 800mm larder (2) such that the lower larder doors are removed and the upper set of doors fits flush against the top draw. From the pictures it looks like it would fit and I prefer the look and function of a larder which features lower draws (not hidden) and upper doors.
1) P2D1-8; 800mm Pan Drawer Units
2) LU8TU-30-1425; 800mm Larder Unit – 1425mm Top Door – 2150 High – Split Doors Smallest Door To Bottom – Reduced Depth 300mm – Total Height 2300 including 150 legs
If it is possible, would I have to buy both units dry fitted and do the carpentry myself, or is it possible for DIY kitchens to do the amendments – potentially for a fee?
2) 800mm Double Larder Unit – 1970 High – Split Doors Smallest Door To Bottom – Total Height 2120 including 150 legs
Hi Ali, you would be best speaking with our technical sales team to see if this unit is possible on 01977 608 418.
I’ve just had a ticket to say that my handles won’t be supplied with my order delivery tomorrow. I’ve not been offered an alternative handle and I’m not sure if I can buy different handles or whether the handle holes will be drilled already which will prevent fitting a different style.
Hi Helen, the doors on the units are never drilled for handle holes. This is something your kitchen fitter will do onsite. So, you can still use any handles that you choose. If you need anymore advice, then our sales team will be happy to help on 01977 608 418.
I have the 600MM HIGHLINE PULL OUT BIN UINT
and it comes with long plastic strips inside but I can’t work out where they are supposed to be fitted?
Can anyone help?
Hi Rob, I had the same plastic strips with my bin also, there is no use for them. I think they may be off cuts from the tops of the bins (where the plastic bit of the bin holder meets the metal bit of the drawer) and are left there in case you ever need them.
Is it possible to get a paint pot of spare paint when ordering a painted kitchen? I’m worried the doors may get scratches and it would be useful to have some spare paint to top up rather than being to repaint the entire kitchen
Hi Carina, painted kitchens come with a small pot of touch up paint with the kitchen in the fittings box. We do sell the paint in larger quantities and it is £15 +vat per litre and it can be ordered from our sales team on 01977 608 418.
Hi there, I am a little puzzled by the measurement in the tall single oven unit, it says there is an aperture of 600mm for oven. But the top door of unit is 570mm, the bottom Door is 715mm, and the drawer is 139mm, a total of 1424mm. The unit itself is 1970mm high. 1970mm – 1424mm is 546mm, how does the an oven with 589H fit in? I’m hoping to fit the units myself so I would appreciate the help, many thanks
Hi Alden, the total height of a 1970 unit with feet is 2120mm. The single oven units either come with 1 door at the bottom or 1 or 2 drawers at the bottom. https://www.diy-kitchens.com/kitchen-units/tall/appliance-housing/single-oven/
If you give the sales team a quick call on 01977 608 418 with the product code from the unit that you have the question about then they will be able to answer it for you.
I’d like to know the width of the frame panels on the Malton shaker doors, so that I can judge which length handles to use for a few different width units.
Hi Richard, the width of the panels in the Malton range are 115 mm.
Hi Do you have a CAD blocks or templates for your DIY kitchen range
Hi David, no CAD blocks or unit downloads are available for our kitchen ranges unfortunately.
Do you do instructions for building your walk in corner larder units?
Hi Alan, there are not fitting instructions for the corner unit itself. If you have any questions then our sales team will be able to help on 01977 608 418.
I have just assembled a walk in larder unit. It came with assembly instructions but these contained several errors which I have noted and sent to after sales. It is not difficult but at times you need 3 people to hold the back panels while the top is inserted. Make sure you get an updated version of the instructions and you will be OK.(I had V 1.02).
Hi Ed, thank you for your feedback. We will get the document updated from your support ticket and published on this page, to help others in the future.
We have a pull out base unit, with metal insterts attached to the door. With it came some plastic pots to put inside and some black concertina cardboard things. Are you able to tell us what these black card things are for please and how we use them.
Hi Sharon, these don’t sound very familiar for a pull out base unit. If you create a support ticket here with images of what you have then our aftersales team will be able to look at this for you.
I’m looking at the Livorna tall oven & microwave unit – can you tell me the maximum depth it would allow for a built in oven?
Hi, the depth of our tall units is 56cm, which will accommodate all the integrated ovens out here.
Hi I am just about to fit my kitchen and I was just wondering if the work top needs to come to a particular height please?
Hi Sarah, worktops are usually 910mm from the ground and 40mm thick but different sizes worktops are available and wall units may need to be adjusted if used in line with tall units. This article on worktop gaps between worktop & wall units might be useful.
Do you have any information on how to design a kitchen island? I’m not sure about the combination of base units, door material panels and plinth. If I want a U shaped island with square worktop, giving a recess for stools to push under, do I need door material panel to line the inside of the U shape? Is plinth required around the whole island?
Also, what is the recommended minimum distance around the island to allow comfortable passage between island and wall fitted base units?
We have a few articles here on how to create a kitchen island. If you have a matt finish then you could get away with unit material end panels as the units are matt finished. But, if you have a gloss kitchen then door material panels would look much better. Plinth is required to cover the exposed legs. If using end/back panels, it’s mainly the front of the island that require them, where you have usable units. The recommended distance between an island and units on an ajacent kitchen run is 1 metre.
If you need any additional information then our sales team are available on 01977 608 418.
Hi, I have two questions:
1- I am looking to have a tumble dryer placed on top of a washing machine (both standard width) in my new kitchen. These should be both integrated appliances but I am unsure which unit, if any, I need. The appliances will be placed in between two 600mm tower units but do the appliances themselves need a unit or just appliance doors?
2- If appliance doors are all that is required for the appliances, do you have a small door (for the washing machine at the bottom) and large door (for the tumble dryer at the top), that together make up to the same height as your tall tower units (2150mm)?
Hi Rui, we have no units for stacking integrated appliances on top of each other. Integrated appliances just need an appliance door and fit between the gap of the units either side. We do not recommend stacking units on top of each other as it’s not particularly safe.
If you have a safe way of doing it then all the doors that we sell are on the doors page here(Clayton Alabaster used as an example). The top door for our 1970 tall units would be 1245x597mm and the bottom door would be 715x597mm.
Got a couple of questions.
1. When we order kitchen & subsequently discover we are say, 1 end panel/space short, can we order just 1 end pane for example?
3. we have a plan & design for our kitchen, but the units available to use are not quite same dimensions as yours. can you still use this & adjust for unit sizes? (just 1 in particular)
(if you had a online designer, that would be great.. 🙂 )
Hi Derek, when you place your order with us, you are permitted to make subsequent orders for items that you may have forgotten. Just enter your order number on the order form, if presented with the minimum order dialogue box to proceed with the order.
If you have an existing quote or a plan of your kitchen with units required then the sales team can give you a quote based on that. Just send your plan/quote on a support ticket below as well as the door style that you would like from our website.
Some units would obviously need to be changed to match the units that we sell. If it helps, we have an online kitchen planner, in beta testing at the moment, which may help you change your plan around a little – https://planner.diy-kitchens.com/
I am thinking of putting a run of 2000mm base units along a wall with two ovens either side of them. the centre base unit having a 5 burner gas hob. Can i have a base unit 800mm with drawers rather than hinged doors. If so which base unit do you suggest. if not what base unit can i use
Hi Russel, we have multi drawer units below in many sizes, and the 800mm wide version is available on there too (DP8-5DRW).
I want to hide a control unit for underfloor heating. Can I use a stoway (100mm) base unit to do this, is there any instructions for using/installing this unit, I assume it does not have legs.
Hi Andrew, stowaway units are base units and can be used and are 100mm deep with legs on them. There are no backs to them and will just butt up against a wall. I recently used one as a wall unit to get around a soil pipe and requested that the unit come with no legs or leg bosses (what the legs slot into) on. I then got the stowaway unit battened to the wall and created a back for it (was not needed but just completed the visual for me) from the back of my sink unit that I could not use, as all the water pipes and main water inlet, prevented me from doing so.
do you have a tall units in the Helmsley range with curved doors. I wish to combine these with larder units. only need to be 300 deep, but I could alter full depth units if need be.
p.s. have you an online tool that could ,”copy paste” similar to the cut-out planners you have to download in PDF form.
Hi Bruce, no, the tall curved units aren’t available in the in-frame ranges unfortunately. The base curved units are available 300mm X 300mm and you can get a 260mm wide base unit to sit behind this to create a 560mm depth if needed.
Hi, do you have plans for the wine rack unit?
In the silsden image the wine rack appears to have a cutout strip front and back but the the cutout seems to be too small for the back of a wine bottle.
Hi Andy, if you give our sales team a quick call at 9am when they open on 01977 608 418 then they will be able to advise you on this.
Hi – do you have instructions on fitting the decorative curved corner end posts for the Luca gloss kitchen range? I’m currently fitting my kitchen and I can’t work this out.
Hi Jane, There isn’t a fitting guide but there is an image on the article below that shows how they are fitted:-
You will also need a cut-off to ‘pack’ the back end between the cabinet and the panel.
Is it possible to get a 600 wall unit with 2×300 doors that does not have a piece of wood down the middle of the unit?
Hi, this unit is only available with the wooden middle bar.
I have just put in a Silsden white run of wall units one of which was a 600 wall cabinet 900 tall with double doors and no central column.
HI, this unit is manufactured with the the central column. Did you request it to be modified? –
I note that you assemble the units prior to delivery. I am wanting to install a Kessebohmer Top-Flex pull out table behind a top drawer space. Is this something you could source/provide/include/assemble with the kitchen unit? I see you sell Kessebohmer accessories but not the Top Flex- which is a pity.
Hi, we do supply the pull out table the SKU is PT6 and this is fitted with Kessebohmer KTFTM table.
We have just bought a tall integrated fridge/freezer unit in the handless white gloss with the small door at the top, are you ables to join the doors?
We have the units and noticed there is a gap between the doors, the unit is for a full fridge.
Hi, there will always be a small gap between the doors as they are handle less and would clash if they were larger, we do offer full height door at 1965mm otherwise the doors can be strapped together using flat door bracket plates.
I have purchased some corner unit doors, but I don’t understand how the spider hinges work. Can you explain?
If you have a corner door solution, then it’s a bi folding door, so the spider hinge connects the two doors together from the rear and allows it to bi-fold and close into the corner.
I would like to house an existing non integrated fridge and dishwasher behind unit doors. Is it possible to buy wider doors to allow for this without the door hinges interfering with the appliances?
Hi. if you are looking to hide freestanding appliances then we would advise using 2 x 347 wide doors for each appliance so 700mm for each as freestanding models are wider than our integrated single doors 597mm. Also again if you are using freestanding appliances, you would need to use a deeper worktop over 670mm in depth.
Providing the worktop is laminate or solid wood the panels either side and a baton to the rear would be enough support the worktop. As the appliances are freestanding, a centre panel would be needed between them, to hinge either door from.
Do you have BIM objects (e.g. Revit or IFC) for your kitchen units please?
Hi, unfortunately, we don’t have any unit objects available for download.
Please provide details for fitting a soft closing hinge unit onto a normal hinge.
The piston has to slot into the first gap after the screw as this piece has a clip type prong which needs to clip under the opening and then the rest of the hinge just clips into place at the rear.
I have added a YouTube video link here
What floor housing do you need for a washing machine ?
Hi, an integrated washing machine does not need any kind of unit, just a door for the front of the appliance. This article may help – https://advice.diy-kitchens.com/customer-questions/kitchen-appliances-to-be-placed-in-a-unit/
Do I need a corner post inbetween a L shaped corner unit (90 x 90cm) and a pan drawer unit (100cm wide)? The two units will take up an entire length of wall in my small kitchen.
Hi, L shaped units do not require a corner post as the doors create the corner. Units simply butt up to the unit from either side.
Would it work to place a 60cm wide dresser unit directly on top of a 60cm wide slimline (30cm deep) base unit? Or does the base unit need to be deeper and/or with a worktop in place? The units I’ve chosen are Linwood pained.
Hi, it is possible but usually you would put the worktop in-between them, to make it line up at the top with the other wall/tall units [2120mm].
Trying to cut a bevelled mitre joint for Contemporary Cornice – 3000x76x83mm. to fit the mantle. I have a 10″ Sliding Compound Double Bevel Mitre Saw . Do you have the bevel and mitre angles? The yanks on you tube seem to all have different cornice.
These pictures may help you.
Do you have a template for fixing kitchen door and drawer handles?
Many thanks for any assistance,
Hi, there is no template available, as handles are placed where each customer likes them.
We are now in the process of installing our kitchen and need advice regarding fitting an oak worktop next to a free standing cooker, would we need a heat shield to protect the end grain from drying out and cracking. Would appreciate your advice.
Hi, the only thing you need to do is oil the worktop regularly.
Can you please advise, I have taken delivery of my kitchen and one unit is a tall double oven with warm drawer apperture. The opening is 880 for oven and 140 for warm draw apperture, I have a 115 filler . I don’t know how these go together .?
Hi, The filler goes at the top to fill the space left above the oven, it will need cutting to size on site.
We had our kitchen fitted in December and on one of the bi-folding wall units the doors keep slipping down, how do we tighten it?
Hi, the links below are for the bi-fold mechanism, Aventos, and how to adjust it.
I saw a thread in April 2016 that you were working on an online kitchen planner, but there was no release date at that point. Do you know if/when the kitchen planner might be available?
Hi, it’s not far off now and we will hopefully will be trailing it in our showroom in the next few months with a hopeful roll out by the end of the year.
Hi – is there any progress on an online planner?
Hi, this is currently being tested in our showroom by visitors.
Any update on this, I would be interested, I think I’m there with my design and order but would prefer this as I don’t want to make a complete hash of the ordering.
Hi, the kitchen planner is still being tested in our showroom by our visitors.
any update on when this will be available ?
Hi Sana, we did have an online kitchen planner live for beta testing but it is now offline, so that we can implement changes from all the customers’ feedback. A new version will be live in the near future but it’s not quite ready for general release yet as work needs to be done on the 3D models and usability, to help make the planner as easy as possible to use.
is there at least an approx release date, are we looking a days ,weeks,months? thank you
There is no release date yet.
Does the top panel shown on your tall fridge freezer appliance housings open up or is this just a fixed panel?
Hi, it is just a fixed filler panel.
His, I am having some trouble with a pan drawer that appears to have “dropped” after 6 months of use. I believe the runner may just need to be released fixed but cannot see how to remove the drawers, is there a guide or any advice please how to remove the drawers ?
Hi, the drawer boxes need to be pulled out to full extension and then snapped upwards to release the drawer box from the runners. Let us know how you get on.
Do you manufacture bespoke size units ie a 900mm width oven housing
Hi, we do not manufacture bespoke units or doors but some customers in the past have ordered components and made 900 wide under the counter oven housings on site for example – 900 open base unit, appliance shelf, drawer front (which generally needs cutting down). If you are looking for 900mm wide and a tall unit, then we would not have components for this.
I may just change the exiting doors, can you send me your price list for units and doors only.
Hi, you can buy additional doors with your kitchen units but we don’t just sell doors on their own I’m afraid.
All our units can be seen on the page below.
Have you thought about doing an electronic/online kitchen planner tool? The print out PDF tool is excellent, but online would be even better
Hi, we are currently working on one but there is no release date yet.
Can you measure and fit the kitchen
Hi, I’m sorry but we only supply the kitchen. We don’t offer a measuring and fitting service.
I am in the process of ordering a Harewood graphite kitchen. Part of the design involves a peninsular unit which will need to be of the 460mm deep rather than full depth but with doors both sides. Is this available and as it’s not shown o the website how will I order this unit. Thanks
Hi, if you email us direct (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the size of the unit required and your shopper id, we will create a surcharge item and add it to your cart.
It would be neat if you provided a worktop cutting jig with orders of laminate worktops. These are only about £40 to buy but customers are unlikely to have one already or use it more than once, and you could carve them out of mdf for next to nothing 🙂
Hi, unfortunately we don’t make the worktop cutting jigs. The decent ones cost in the region of £90 that can template a worktop up to around 700mm in depth. I’ll pass your email onto the Sales Manager but I cannot promise anything 🙂
Hi looking to purchase some doors but you have informed me that the doors come without any predrilled hinge holes. I see from your instruction section that you have a guide for a jig, do you sell or hire this,if so how much is it?
The doors can be drilled for you but there is a small charge for doing so. You can contact the sales team though on 01977 608 418 to enquire about hiring a jig.
Have you ever considered opening a showroom in South England. I would expect an exceptional increase in sales if you were to open a showroom not too far from London. I live in south west and the only reason that is stopping me from buying my new kitchen from you is that I should do a 4 hours drive to get to your showroom. I understand you offer the delivery of samples… but that’s not enough if you really want to see all the options.
There are plans to do this within the next 12 months, due to popular demand.
How are you getting on with this? Any progress?
Hi there! Any more news on whether/when this might be happening? We are in Oxfordshire and would love to be able to visit a show room a bit closer to home!
The MD of the business was out and about just last week looking for a new location for a showroom. No location has been bought yet but we are still looking. There is no eta at the moment I’m afraid.
A year ago a reply was that the MD was out looking for a location for a new southern showroom. Have your plans changed and isn’t it now happening?
Hi, we are still looking for the right location, so the showroom is still in scope.
Try Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, we desperately need an affordable Kitchen showroom here!!! There is plenty of room to open a showroom in the industrial areas around MK and also in the “DIY” areas.
I want to install 5 appliance units in a bank. The LHS unit is a 1970 high by 600 wide single fridge to house something like an AEG SKD71800F0 but I want a single door to fit. Do you supply a single appliance door to fit a 1970 high cabinet?
All the size appliance doors that we have available are below.
If you are putting a fridge/freezer into a tall appliance unit then one of the units below should fit your requirements.
Hi, Is there any news on when the interactive kitchen planner will be available on the website?
We would be looking at a release date in the 2nd quarter of 2015 but we have no exact date yet.
Any news on the interactive planner?
do you have an interactive planner yet? if not, can you release your range using sketch up? Thanks
Hi, we don’t have an online planner available yet. The only unit images we have are shown on the website. They are not available in any other form.
Hi, do you cut the wood or laminate worktops to size & also mitre/joint corners for the flush look.
Sorry but we do not cut or mitre worktops. They are supplied complete for you or your kitchen fitter to fit once the units are in place.
Hi, do you have a brochure that states which fascias are available in each range/size ? I just got to the very last curved wall unit and the fascia isn’t available in a 900mm
Unfortunately we don’t have a brochure available. All the accessories available for each kitchen range are visible on the Accessories tab on the website. An example link is below.
Hi I have purchased a walk in corner cupboard but have no instructions to build, am I able to download them?
Hi, unfortunately we don’t have any downloads for these units. If you have any questions about the unit then you can contact our sales team via email (email@example.com) or telephone on (01977 608 418).
Hi. When we visited your showroom recently we were told you would have an interactive Kitchen planner available soon, any idea when this will happen?
We are currently in the process of getting a kitchen planner to suit the needs of our customers, but we don’t have a release date yet.
CAN you show measurement in inches
The measurements on the kitchen planner are all done in millimetres, as this unit of measurement allows for a more precise plan and 1 millimetre is easier to read (see below).
1 millimetre = 0.0393700787 inches, if that is of any help to you in converting the unit of measurement?
It would probably be more helpful to say that 1 inch = 25.4mm exactly! And I agree with Alan Baker – as everything is sized in mm it’s easier to work in mm and avoid the possible errors in converting to inches.
Anyone who can’t understand millimetres should not be attempting to install a kitchen!
It would be really helpful if you were to supply Google Sketch-up models of your product range
I’m sorry but we don’t have the Google Sketch-up models available to publish.
