    Hi, wife is hounding me for new kitchen
    I fitted a mixture of bits previously when focus DIY shutdown down years ago and mixed with Cooke and Lewis doorsfdoors b&q.

    Want to upgrade to a shaker style but to save a bit will consider keeping most the carcasses. Can anyone recommend a half decent supplier where I can buy doors and panels. Havent got any trade account with Howdens. grey or blue colour. Thanks..

    A couple of years ago, when considering doing something similar I found a company in Sawbridgeworth, that has a small showroom you can visit;
    https://www.hotdoors.co.uk/
    In the end I didn't use them as we did go for a complete refit on the kitchen in question, but I'd visited the showroom and they had a decent selection, and If I remember correctly they will also make to size, and have a pre-drilling option for hinges.
    And the prices were decent as well, top end and budget end available.
    Good luck,
    Cando

    I was impressed with DIY Kitchens

    Thanks, must admit my internet research this afternoon seems to have led me to diykitchens,
    I’d prefer an over the counter solution really in case I needed any extra bits etc but think I could get a bit better value with their products, Will have a look at some samples

    Sigma 3 kitchens are quite good, fitted a couple over the years, prefer them to the usual suspects like Howdens, Wren, B&Q etc.

    Yes that’s my issue at the moment as I’m not confident buying. They have a planner but again it’s a £350 min.

    Plus one for Hotdoors: have had 2 kitchens doored by them: great choice and value and very helpful.

    Fitted to B&Q carcasses both times

    I looked at b&q's new range of cabinets and the reviews are terrible.

    I think the new improved joint screws are a retrograde step though they are quicker to put together. That said they are a Contiboard box at the end of the day.

    Have a look at IKEA kitchens.
    Considering purchasing one myself as the price beats everyone else I got quotes from. They have a good online design tool which helps price up your kitchen.
    Not sure of the quality hence why I not purchased so far.

    Beware IKEA - no service void and plinth is much lower than UK standard, means you can't fit a kickspace heater in there.

    Also, the Germans say IKEA stands for Idioten Kaufen Eben Alles, which loosely translates to Idiots will buy anything.

    kitchendoorworkshop AFAIK use ba components doors which I have used before and are decent vynil or acrylic covered doors. They will make in any size so are a good option for a refit. I get mine from https://www.discountkitchenfactory.co.uk/

    I have also used DIY kitchens for a painted timber shaker style door and were nice quality with a tough paint finish.
