We were talked into buying a kitchen from space kitchens and also having a window fitted.the kitchen was duly fitted and i had to chase round Britian for two months to find my window.it was fitted by Weatherseal. When the guarantee came it was a little piece of paper and our name and address was handwritten by a two year old and probably just as useless. (read more)

bought a kitchen in 2005 and am very happy with my kitchen-design is exactly how I wanted it.The sales person knew what I was looking for in the kitchen. I exchanged some of the standard appliances which the company offers for top of the range appliances from different companies ( took some time to shop around but was worth every single minute) I wanted a kitchen that lasts for ever .Every visitor I get admires my kitchen. The fitters were absolutely fantastic and I can still call them to... (read more)

I've just had the built in gas oven removed and found the shelf it sat on had burnt an enormous hole in it. How my house wasn't burned down god only knows. The heat that must have been generated turned most of the shelf into charcoal. How the gas pipe didn't melt and explode is a miracle. Also they had not fed the plug and lead through a hole. Which now I'll have to do to fit my new oven. The wiring was found to be dangerous and they had just fitted the unit with it trapped behind. I've had... (read more)

I was pressured into having a space kitchen installed 5yrs ago and had very similar experiences that all the other customers wrote about in their reviews. I replaced the built in fridge-freezer and dishwasher 2yrs after installation and now the cupboard fronts are all worn and warped and the kickboards are the same. I paid £8000 for this kitchen and expected it to look good for much longer than 5yrs. I am now trying to make a claim but have been asked to fill out a claim form and forward... (read more)

I have had neumerous calls over the years offering another new kitchen but never been able to obtain a guaranteecfor the rubbish I have already got, now the cupboard doors are begining to crumble and fall...

My sister ordered a kitchen from Space Kitchens. They did a very good job of selling it to her but that was where the quality ended. She had a fully tiled kitchen already but the new installation meant that some of the existing tiles would have to be replaced. The salesmen insisted that he could source the original tiles and that it would be no problem. When the fitter eventually started work (a week late) he informed my sister that he didn't have the tiles and that the salesman who assured... (read more)

Ok, so we had a visit from Space at the end of Feb, the rep took his time, about 3 and a half hours, but as he explained from the off its not something you do in half an hour, so we gave him the time. He was clearly experienced at the job, so when going through the standard presentation, we told him simply we werent interested in finance, or the never ending presentation; luckily he had enough wits about him to stop reading from his sales script and get on with it. Standard sales stuff,... (read more)

We were looking for a new kitchen and had a look at lots of places B&Q, Homebase, etc ffor showrooms but did not feel that we could afford these as had appointment at Homebase £14000+ quoted. We also tried Space Kitchens and Kitchens Direct for non-showrooms and after problems with Direct made appointment with Space.
I agree with the tactics used, 2 hours of non-kitchen talk and then 2 hours of drawing and discussing our kitchen. Also felt a bit underpressure when told 'now or never' for... (read more)

I received a design visit from Space kitchens only a few days ago. And after reading all these reviews, i am very glad we didn't go ahead.
Our designer arrived at 7:30, and didnt leave until 11:30!!! the only reason i had asked them to come out, was because they were offering 50% off and £1000 worth of appliances if you booked a visit - that then became an old promotion - the website hadn't been updated!!
Our designer gave us several quotes. the first being £14,000, then £8,800, then... (read more)

Space, dont touch with a big stick unless you want to get pestered & abused.
Never written a review before and only after my recent experience with Space Kitchens, wanted to write one. Have always read reviews on everything before purchase and being offered cheap kitchen from company I'd not heard of before was no different.
The reviews here were quite against Space as a company but I was willing to give benefit of the doubt as someone was booked to come and see us anyway and as we were... (read more)
