We highly recommend Janice and Joe to anyone wanting to renovate their kitchen.  We had never done this before and Janice's advice was wonderful as she really understood what we wanted and needed.  We got several quotes from different companies and Kiwi was competitively priced but what sold them to us was the great help and advice and the way Janice gave us her time to help us make the right decisions.  The installation was great and both Joe and Janice went the extra mile to work around our painter and to add and change things that we only thought of as it was happening.  They are both helpful, friendly, genuine and reliable, as well as being very professional and competent.  The finished kitchen is fabulous and even better than we hoped for. Thank you so much Kiwi Kitchens!


We found Kiwi Kitchens via an internet search after visiting other showrooms where we had been ignored, had to deal with pushy sales people, or, unhelpful advice and promises such as "you can have anything you want".  Immediately the difference was obvious - although we didn't have an appointment, Janice spent an hour or so guiding us through various products and ideas, helping us to decide to ask Kiwi Kitchens to design our new kitchen.

Designer Debbie took time to understand us and our requirements and was able to product the stunning design we had hoped for.  Throughout the design process, we always received timely and intelligent advice, and always felt that everyone at Kiwi Kitchens had time to spend with us and respond to our questions.  We were very impressed with the attention to detail, making sure we were aware of the implications of our choices, and making suggestions to change the design slightly to improve the overall look and feel of the kitchen.

We also needed one person to coordinate all the tradies and we were very happy with the contractors recommended and how they all worked together at exactly the right time.  Joe installed the kitchen with the same care, professionalism and attention to detail that we had enjoyed from Debbie and Janice. 

In summary, we wanted top quality, and expected perfection, and that's exactly what Kiwi Kitchens delivered.


I just want to thank you and your team so very much for my simply beautiful kitchen and laundry ... I love them!  Your plan and installation was everything I wished for, without any problems.  The whole procedure, since walking into your showroom, was an absolute pleasure.  Everybody I dealt with were so helpful and caring.  They listened to everything I asked for, and you delivered, plus more!

I would also like to especially thank you Janice, Joe and Debbie ... you all helped to make this a very painless procedure!  All the best for your company's future - I will strongly recommend you.

"I'd wanted a new kitchen since we bought our first home 10 years ago! We decided that seeing as we were getting EQC repairs done we'd go for it.

I can't fault the service from start to finish.  The consultant/designer asked easy and practical questions which helped her understand not just what I needed but also what I wanted.  Choosing colours, finishes and work bench options I felt fully supported, informed and listened to.  The fitter was amazing at working around our EQC work (which was running late) and never made it seem like anything was a problem.

During the entire process I felt like I was their only customer and their aim was my happiness.  The finished product is amazing. I am so happy in my kitchen and love showing it off to my friends. Our kitchen is the hub of our home.  It is a truly happy place.

I couldn't recommend Kiwi Kitchens enough"      


"Kiwi Kitchens did a wonderful job helping us to design and build our new kitchen which was required after the devastating Christchurch earthquakes.  They were a great pleasure to work with, and went the extra mile to help us get a fairer settlement from our insurance company. They came back months later to fix something and then cheerfully cleaned all the outside top cupboards which another tradesman had marked with silicone!  They were friendly, approachable and helpful at all times.  I would strongly recommend their services to others."


"This was the first new kitchen I had ever had.  Kiwi Kitchens were so helpful from original concept to project completion. They LISTENED to my needs (and budget), talked me through options, and adjusted the original design to meet my requirements.  I was hugely appreciative of this flexibility.  The kitchen was built on time and to budget.  My friends think its great.  It suits the house.  It works extremely well and looks lovely.  The workmanship is excellent.  My kitchen is an absolute delight!"


Joe and Janice have done an excellent renovation of our dated kitchen. From the very start we found them to be very knowledgeable and very approachable.  They met our expectations admirably.  Our new kitchen is very workable and a pleasure to work in."


"It was time to replace our old kitchen.  We shopped around Christchurch and settled on Kiwi Kitchens.  It proved to be a wise choice.  They are wonderful people to work with.  

The resulting high quality kitchen is fantastic and exactly what we wanted.  They listened to our needs/wants and delivered in a most friendly and professional manner.  We wholeheartedly recommend Kiwi Kitchens to anyone wanting a new kitchen."


"Kiwi Kitchens built our replacement kitchen and also cupboards and shelving for the study area in the lounge.  In all aspects of both these projects, the Kiwi Kitchen people listened to what was important to us and then guided us as to what would look and work best.  We were very impressed with the attention to detail displayed when the kitchen and study units were installed.  Drawers and cupboard doors were meticulously adjusted so that all the vertical and horizontal edges lined up perfectly."


" We used Kiwi Kitchens to design, make and install our kitchen.  They did an amazing job and we would highly recommend them, in fact we have already done so to 2 seperate friends whom have gone on and subsequently used Kiwi Kitchens as well.  We are all pleased with the service, cost and timeframes that they provided - thank you!"


"Deb at Kiwi Kitchens helped us redesign our kitchen.  Great ideas with practical and creative approach ... very professional ... nothing seemed a bother!  Meticulous installation on time for a fantastic result.  Couldn't ask for more!"


"With no comparison in the service level between Kiwi Kitchens and other providers I visited, it was a no brainer to choose Kiwi.  Janice and Joe did an outstanding job in a dimensionally difficult space with a picky purchaser and the kitchen delivered is of excellent quality.  The space, previously very awkward, now works perfectly.  They made changes at the last minute without a quibble or questions, and worked around my nosy dog, for which I was very grateful. I recommend them frequently!"


"Kiwi Kitchens supplied and installed our kitchen, working from the blank canvas of an empty room.  They were recommended to us by another tradesperson.  We are very satisfied with the excellent service we received at every stage in the process.  We found everyone we dealt with to be friendly, knowledgeable, adaptable and professional from the initial design stage, through the modifications and right through to production and installation."


I totally recommend Kiwi Kitchens.  Right from day one this family based team were a delight to work with and as a result we now have a kitchen that looks fabulous, is really functional, well-constructed, withon our budget and best of all, just what we wanted.  They were able to help us navigate through negotiations with our insurance company (our home was undergoing repair following the Christchurch earthquake) and were easily able to fit in with other trades working on our home during a rather challenging repair.  A great experience all round at a difficult time.  This will be my first port of call in the future, should we need to put in a new kitchen.  Many thanks to a great team.


I am delighted with my new kitchen and the service provided by the Kiwi Kitchens team.  I upgraded my existing kitchen, approx 30 years old, and now have a much more functional and user friendly space to cook in.  The quality of finishes, both joinery and bench top, is first class.  From Michelle at the design stage, to Janice and Joe at the installation stage, everything went smoothly and their recommendations were all spot on.  I also used their trade team - builder, plumber, electrician and painter and found them all to be very professional, worked in well together and did a great job.  There's nothing I would change in my kitchen design and I have no hesitation in recommending Kiwi Kitchens to anyone looking for a quality kitchen supplied by a friendly helpful team.
