Ms Butler, Steyning

“Thank you so much for helping provide us with our lovely new kitchen. We absolutely love it. We will certainly recommend The Kitchen Store and we found your customer service across the team exceptional. Thanks again and please pass on our extended thanks to the rest of the team.”
Mrs Sweeney, Brighton

“We have a fantastic modern kitchen. This is in no small way down to the support and guidance of the team at Kitchen Store, most notably Jan, but also Kevin, Kat and Dave. Your patience was much appreciated, communication was clear and timely, delivery was on time and complete, and the fitter worked efficiently and in a clean, tidy way. Aftercare has been good, with the speedy resolution to one problem hinge. A really good experience and the service was fantastic.”
Ms Smith, Brighton

“An all round excellent service was received – thank you. In-store service was very welcoming and attentive. The amount of time spent with us, including several appointments and early planning, made the whole experience a pleasant one and meant we ended up with our dream kitchen. Many thanks for guiding us through this significant investment and delivering a kitchen that blends perfectly with the new extension. We highly recommend the Kitchen Store!”
Mr Pearcey, Hove

“I am very happy with the kitchen. The design is excellent, the units are exceptionally well made and the fitters were very good. The whole process, from design to completion, was smooth and I felt I was being looked after by people who genuinely cared about quality and service. When friends come to my flat they always comment on how great the kitchen looks. I have already recommended The Kitchen Store to others and I will continue to do so.”
Mr Carter, Hove

“If you want a new kitchen then you MUST go the the kitchen store in Hove. They had been recommended to me by two separate friends, who both said they had Kevin do there design. So off I went, asking for Kevin and the rest is history. I got a few different quotes and designs , and from the start I found Kevin by far the most professional and accommodating. And all I can say is that I am so happy I went with the kitchen store. From start to finish they have made the whole process much more bearable. Kevin came up with a great design with some fantastic ideas that I hadn’t thought about. He was always available to talk to me, and more than helpful when I wanted to change something yet again! We were having a lot of renovations done at the same time, and thanks to Kevin, the kitchen was probably the less stressful part of it all. From start to finish I was impressed with the company. Design, manufacture, fitting and finish all done to the highest standard. When you are spending a large chunk of money, you want to have faith in where it is going. I can tell you, you won’t go wrong if you choose the kitchen store. Thank you guys”

“We love our new kitchen! From design discussions to installation the whole team at The Kitchen Store were professional and proficient at their roles within the project. Kerry was able to deliver all of our requirements in the final design and the fitting team were a delight to have in our home. Everything has been finished to a high standard and all minor issues fixed immediately. Definitely a five star experience”.
Kathy J, Hove

“We are delighted with our new kitchen. We approached three kitchen companies and Jan’s design was by far the most attractive, practical and functional. It met all our needs and more. We have twice as much storage and the kitchen actually looks bigger than before! Harry (lead fitter) and his team are really competent and courteous. They stuck to the schedule so no time was wasted and within two weeks we went from no kitchen to completion. Sian kept us regularly updated on the progress which was also much appreciated. The Kitchen Store is a really professional team and we could not recommend them highly enough.”
Diana R, Hove

“Our new kitchen is finally finished. It all looks amazing and is great to use. Initially we got quotes from three different companies. There seemed little price difference between them, but the Kitchen Store’s flexible approach to design and their ability to customise standard units to fit our space made us choose them. We liked the fact it’s a local company. Kevin from the Kitchen Store did a great job designing it all. Not only did he make some really clever suggestions, he also took our own wishes and ideas on board and tried to find the best solution for fitting the kitchen into a rather small and tricky space. Kevin looked after us throughout the build process and Graham did a good job coordinating the timing of all the different deliveries and services. Harry, the kitchen fitter, and his team of builders did a fantastic job. They are excellent craftsmen with an eye for detail and a high standard of finish. They are nice people to have around, very polite and thoughtful and they cleaned up meticulously at the end of each working day. What more do you want? The whole Kitchen Store team have done a great job. Thank you”
Karla N, Hove

“We wanted to thank you for the excellent kitchen you installed at our home. Cat’s organisation and regular communication was excellent, and Marc the lead fitter was superb, always on time, courteous and the quality of his work is very high. We are very pleased, many thanks”
Simon A, Hove

“In March 2016, Trish B said about The Kitchen Store – Hove Showroom
Just had to send you a message to say the kitchen is already looking fantastic, absolutely thrilled with it and we have the worktop and splash back to go! What a brilliant team Harry and co are, all of them have been great and so helpful”

“More than happy to provide some feedback on The Kitchen Store! In-store Service: The service received from you from the outset was very welcoming and attentive, not pushy and revealed a great number of ideas and suggestions we’d have otherwise probably not have considered. The amount of time spent with us, to include the several appointments and early planning made the whole experience a pleasant one and meant we ended up with our dream kitchen. The plans and assurances around site surveys and levels of detail down to consideration of plaster thickness and drying time made us feel very confident in your ability to deliver precisely as per specification. An all-round excellent service was received – thank you. The Installation: Dave is a very friendly and accommodating installer and did in the most a very good job. I felt though perhaps a little more attention to detail could have been achieved with areas like cupboard alignment and the flagging of manufacturing defects before installation. The Product: Very Good – it does feel like a premium kitchen, although perhaps slightly expensive. Really though, it’s the worktop and splashback that make it stand out from the crowd. Post-installation Service: Excellent. Both you and Charlotte have continued to be attentive and ensure we are happy all issues have been addressed – that is very much appreciated (please pass on our thanks to Charlotte). Many thanks for guiding us through this significant investment and delivering the kitchen which blends perfectly with the new extension. We highly recommend the Kitchen Store!”

“I am very happy with the kitchen. The design is excellent; the units are exceptionally well made and the fitters were very good. The whole process, from design to completion, was smooth and I felt I was being looked after by people who genuinely cared about quality and service. When friends come to my flat they always comment on how great the kitchen looks. I have already recommended The Kitchen Store to others and I will continue to do so”
Mike C, Hove

“Dear Mark, Charlotte and the big cheese. I have not had the chance to thank you for the beautiful kitchen that I now have. It was with great trepidation and reluctance that we plunged into kitchen design and model selection. But Mark made it so easy and simple! The goods arrived on time, and the fitter Harry that I will honour forever. Turned up when you said they would, it was all going according to plan. How could it be ? Where was the nightmare that we were expecting? Charlotte smoothed things along the way, soothed my anxieties, and generally kept things going to plan. The work top was fitted when you said it would be. It’s beautiful by the way. And the fitters were great. I know it wasn’t a big project for you, but for us it was an enormous deal. We cannot praise you or “the team” enough. We are very happy to recommend Manhattan kitchens to any of our friends. My friend recommended you to me. This says a lot these days. Thank you again”
Ian & Nicky G, Hove

“Just wanted to thank you and your colleagues so very much for everything you have done for me in the making of my new kitchen. The service I have received from everyone from start to finish could not have been better and I am absolutely thrilled with it as it is now and it’s not finished yet! Dave has just left and he really has done a superb job, he took great pride in his work and it shows in the end product. It’s been a pleasure having him here this week. Thanks again Dan and Dave for everything, have a great Easter”
J H, Hove

“From the moment we walked into your showroom we have been most impressed with the courteous and professional way in which we have been treated, and this has continued throughout the whole process with all the tradesmen that have been involved in the process. It has been a pleasure to deal with the Kitchen Store and I would have no hesitation in using your company again (should the need arise!) or recommending you to others”
Joanna R, Hove

“Thank you for supplying extra shelf supports so promptly. Your service and customer care just add to the best kitchen ever”
Maggie O, Hove

“Hi Jan, Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the kitchen. It looks great. Dave was a pleasure, professional and his workmanship was spot on. The whole process from start to finish has been great. We just have one small teething problem, the sink isn’t draining very well. Can Dave possibly pop back to have a look. Thanks again, and we will recommend you at every opportunity”
Rachel S, Hove

“Dear Jan, Dave came this morning, on the dot as always, and completed all the finishing work in the kitchen. I want to say, the experience of working with you, Dave and your colleagues has been a true pleasure. You deliver beyond promise. Manhattan’s product quality is superb. The Kitchen Store’s service levels are of the highest. Dave’s workmanship and professionalism is impeccable. Nothing has been too much trouble. Your original design has come beautifully to life. The result is something we can all take pride in. Thank you Jan, to you, Dave and everyone from both of us”
Nick, Hove

“We just wanted to tell you how thrilled we are with our new kitchen, which we achieved with the help and support of Daniel Redfern. Our kitchen is quite small and we wanted a lot in it! Daniel helped us to achieve what we needed, whilst also achieving a sleek streamlined look and a kitchen that works. We are very pleased with the Paula Rosa units that look really good. We received good customer service with any problems being quickly solved by Daniel (and Sara when Dan was unavailable.) We will have no hesitation in recommending your company to family and friends”
Graham & Jenny H, Hove

“I can highly recommend the Kitchen Store Horsham. Cat was fantastic with her designs and ensured the whole process ran very smoothly from start to finish. Marc the fitter was excellent with great attention to detail. Our new kitchen looks amazing!”
