Knowledgeable and very professional
My sister recommended HB kitchens as she had her kitchen fitted by Julien a couple of years ago. As with previous reviews we found Julien to be very helpful on our first visit, he suggested things that we had not thought about, he is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and very professional, nothing was too much trouble, he was always at the other end of the phone or he would call around at the drop of a hat.
Julien was also very helpful in recommending contractors for appliance’s, flooring and lighting, providing contact details.
The workmanship from his team was fantastic, we would highly recommend HB Kitchens for anyone looking for a bespoke kitchen.

Design and expertise
Many thanks to Julien for his design and expertise in guiding me through the options available on my transformation in the kitchen / dining area. It has exceeded all of my expectations. Would recommend Julien and HB Kitchens.
Julien, and the team are a first class company
HB Kitchens installed our new kitchen, and fitted wardrobes in 2 bedrooms. He was recommended by my builder Ultra Developments. We are very pleased with the standard of workmanship, and the units used. Julien, and the team are a first class company.
From the initial meeting, to the completion of the job. I have recently used him again at a relative’s property, to fit a new kitchen.

Our kitchen will be two years old next month – so I’m not writing this review in the first flushes of delight of a new fitted kitchen. Our kitchen looks as amazing today – as the day Julien and his team at HB kitchens completed it.
Julien’s obvious vast knowledge and experience in the industry made the whole planning process considerably easier than it could have been. His exacting eye for detail highlighted so many little flaws in my imaginary plan for my kitchen. The fitting of the kitchen was of the same exacting standard – which I feel contributes to how the kitchen feels it will “last a lifetime”.
Finally – I feel Julien and his team offer kitchens at exceptionally good value for money. There are a lot of retailers with glittering showrooms -they charge a lot more – for less service and a lot less quality. HB Kitchens offer Excellent service. Excellent workmanship. Excellent quality product. I could not give a higher recommendation!
Helpful & Reassuring
One of the things that sets Hand Built Kitchens apart from other firms is the personal touch that Julien brings. No matter how many times I rang, texted, emailed or asked him to ‘pop in’ to chat about an idea I’d had, he was always patient, helpful and reassuring.
Julien’s knowledge, experience and attention to detail ensured that we got a kitchen that was even better than we’d hoped for. Thank you so much!
Gail & Gareth
A friend recommended Julien but we considered other kitchen fitters, both national and local, before giving him the job. We are very glad that we did. Julien has an eye for detail and was able to give us excellent advice on the design and layout of the kitchen.
Once the work started Julien and his team were exemplary, working quickly and tidily and within the deadline. Even during the fitting stage, Julien suggested and incorporated an adjustment to the original plans. What really impresses us is the obvious pride he takes in his workmanship.
We’re delighted with the end result and have already recommended Julien to friends and colleagues.
Thanks for everything. We love our kitchen and are looking forward to entertaining in it once the floor is refitted.

A Kitchen Dining Space That We Love
We had a space 6.5m by 6.5m with four distinct areas with walls and arches and wasted space. We knew we wanted to change but it was a challenge to visualise just how to make one special homely kitchen diner out of the space we had. There was much discussion with Julien about what was best and his input was invaluable in altering our thinking. Julien’s attention to detail is impressive, his willingness to make changes to accommodate is helpful, his patience when we were dithering is commendable, his ability to hide pillars is magical and his determination to see through our fuzziness to get the right finished product a real talent. We have ended up with a kitchen dining space that we love, a space that suits all situations and a finish that I don’t believe we would have got elsewhere.
Fantastic new kitchen
Julien was recommended to me by friends and he didn’t disappoint. From the start he was patient and provided me with sound advice about what would work in the kitchen, matching colors, (though now its mainly white!), styles and was happy to work with my ideas as well. I received a quotation, based upon what I had chosen and he kept to budget., worked commenced at the agreed start date, he provided me with excellent contacts for flooring and other aspects of works required and project managed the work from start to finish. I now have a fantastic, new modern kitchen, well finished and everything working as it should. I am very pleased with the end result, with Julien and HB kitchens. Thank you.
A First Class Service
Several people had recommended Julien to us when we had spoken about getting a new kitchen. I had assumed that he would be out of our price range, this was not the case his costings were cheaper than Wren and comparable to the other two quotes we had. Julien provided a first class service from start to finish, I trusted his judgment and took his advice when I had been so indecisive on so many aspects. The overall result is just perfect for us as a family. Thank you once again.
Julie & Robin Wright
We had our kitchen completely refitted by Julien and his team in June, 2015, and are delighted with the results. His professional advice regarding the design, with practical suggestions we had not considered previously, meant that we were able to make full use of the kitchen space.
The fact that the size of the units could be adapted where necessary is a service that many other kitchen suppliers do not offer, and was of paramount importance to us. Julien is a perfectionist who takes great pride in his work to ensure that the finished product is of the highest standard. The units are robust and of a superior quality, yet at a reasonable price. The team were friendly and efficient, with everything completed on time. I should have no hesitation in recommending Julien to friends and family, and we are very pleased that we chose him.
Mr & Mrs Wilson
Many thanks to Julien and his fitters for the excellent service that they provided from the start through to the completion of my much admired kitchen. From the first visit to discuss the design and finish and throughout the process his advice and knowledge of his products was very impressive, the kitchen was completed on time in an organised way and to a very high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend hbkitchens to anyone wanting quality with a personal touch.
Carol Wakefield – Wigan
We have been absolutely delighted with our Tomba kitchen, designed, supplied and expertly fitted, by Julien and his team. Julien was very patient and supportive with our challenging layout and demanding requirements, such as intricate aluminium detailing and shark nose corian worktop, but the resulting kitchen is truly fantastic, unique to us, and everything we had hoped and wished for… Thank you Julien!

Julien Is One Of The Very Best
Living in an old house we are continually making improvements and have come across many different workmen over the years. Julien is one of the very best. From the planning stage (knowing his product and what looks ‘right’, creative thinking and endless patience) to choosing appliances (meeting us at the shop to guide us through the complexities of different appliances) to execution (meticulous workmanship, speed in completion and a clean and tidy work environment), Julien never let us down and created a beautiful kitchen. If we had another kitchen to renovate, there would be absolutely no hesitation in knowing who to ask.

Professional & Efficient
We had a new kitchen fitted by Hand Built Kitchens last year.
Our kitchen is very small so there wasn’t much we could do to change the layout but with Julien’s experience and clever ideas we now have much more storage space and a much more efficient use of the layout. We found Julien and every one of his team of workers to be extremely professional and efficient, making the whole process as painless as possible for us. Also we were pleased that Julien could get us good deals on the appliances we chose. We have ended up with a high quality kitchen that looks great and works well. We couldn’t be more pleased with the finished result and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future or to recommend them to others.
Extremely Happy With The Results
Handbuilt kitchens were recommended to us by a friend and from the first meeting, we found the company to be extremely professional with a wealth of experience behind them.
Julien came out initially to discuss our ideas for the kitchen. We found his advice to be very honest and he wanted to know what we wanted from our kitchen to understand how it would work best for our family. Julien advised what would work best and came up with brilliant suggestions to make our space work the best for us. As our house is quite traditional we wanted to keep the kitchen in fitting with this. Some of the initial ideas we had would not have worked and Julien discussed this with us, resulting in the kitchen working out best both financially and aesthetically.
Due to the age of our property we required quite a lot of prep work before the Kitchen could be fitted this included a rewire, walls to be stripped of old plaster due to damp issues and a re-plaster on the walls and ceiling. Julien recommended workers to come in and complete this work and project managed this for us, he planned what needed to be done and when and managed the workmen coming in to do their jobs. This relieved the stress from us and the prep work went smoothly. Once this was all complete Julien was able to start with the Kitchen fitting, before this began he finalised the plans and ensured we were happy with the plan of the kitchen, the cupboards we have chosen and the work tops, alongside all the accessories. At this point we decided to change the work surfaces and this was not a problem.
Overall, I found the service we received from Handbuilt Kitchens to be excellent and we are extremely happy with the results, the kitchen fits in with the rest of the house and works well for our family and will no doubt add value to our property.
As Good As New After 12 Years!
Our kitchen is still looking fabulous and as good as new after 12 years! We still get many compliments about the great design and workmanship and the clever use of storage. We will definitely ask HBKitchens to design and install our next kitchen.
