We count the day that we decided to act on an advert we’d seen a local magazine and ask SSK to quote for a bespoke fitted desk as one of our very best in terms of that difficult area of “finding reliable people to do good work in the house”.
Since then, they have not only fitted a beautiful desk with a local ash work surface, but also helped us when we were let down terribly by a joiner working on a wall of wardrobes and drawers in a bedroom. SSK rescued us, finally producing a set of wardrobes and drawers with an integral dressing table which is really lovely, especially given what they had to work with at the beginning!!
We are now starting a similar project in another bedroom, but this time SSK will start from scratch!
We cannot speak highly enough of their professional approach to every job. The workmanship by all their people - both directly employed and contracted - and the customer care throughout are all excellent. They are adaptable too - if you, or they, suddenly realise some change might be better, they will do everything they can to accommodate it if at all possible and nothing is too much trouble either during the project or afterwards. They are always happy to follow up.
In addition to all the above, you have the security, confidence and satisfaction of knowing that you are (1) working with a really nice, friendly, helpful set of people; (2) everything they do is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible and they will accommodate all sorts of requests or suggestions you may have in those respects; (3) the work is to a very high standard and if you aren’t happy with something, it will be sorted out; and (4) the company is run in an ethical way in terms of the work they do and the way they treat their staff, their suppliers and their customers. The quote is always completely transparent and fair and they can do a range of options to accommodate your budget. They try to do the right thing at every level of their business and it shows. More companies should operate this way.
We have been delighted with SSK and we feel sure that anyone choosing to use them for any project will not be disappointed.
A kitchen that is a joy to work in and that I confidently expect to last me for many, many years
Rob of Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens offered a highly individualised planning and fitting service; he worked with my original thoughts and ideas and used his creative skills and experience to design a kitchen that was aesthetic, highly functional and ensured best use of the space available.
His careful planning, reliability and excellent communication skills ensured that the fitting process went smoothly and was a stress-free experience. The workmanship and attention to detail was exemplary.
I was delighted with my new kitchen from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens, not just the end result, but also the entire process.
The planning was thorough and attractively presented, all the work was carried out quickly, neatly and to a high standard, and everyone I dealt with was friendly, approachable, and willing to go the extra mile to help. I would wholeheartedly recommend the company to any of my friends.
I now have a lovely kitchen thanks to SSK. The standard of the work, quality of the finish and attention to detail are excellent. Everyone I had contact with was courteous, professional, friendly and caring and it was a pleasure to have them in my house.
We are really pleased with our new kitchen, the quality is terrific. It feels solid and well made. The recycled glass worktops took a bit longer than we first thought but they are amazing.
All the various people working on it were polite and nothing was too much trouble. It's a joy to work in and there is so much more useable space. Couldn't recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens more highly.
From start to finish Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens made the process of renovating our kitchen hassle free. Nothing was too much trouble even when we changed some of the details. They communicated well and kept us updated when there were minor hiccups.
We have a beautiful kitchen just as we had imagined and planned for. A top quality service in terms of the finished product and also the professionalism of the staff and tradesmen.
There was a wait for the work to begin but this is a reflection of their services being in high demand. Work started and finished within the timescales we were given and came in on budget.
We would like to say thanks for all your help with the splashback, once again you and your teams professionalism has shone through. Pat says she has got a new kitchen again. Thanks to Nicola for her help and Fabio for his hard work
Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens staff have just completed a full refurbishment of our kitchen. We asked them to refurbish some existing solid pine cabinets and create new items such as a larder and an island unit. They also installed new electrical equipment.
From start to finish we were delighted with their work. Beginning with the initial design advice to the care and attention they took in building, fitting and painting the units, we were very impressed with the professionalism of the whole Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens team. We now have a great kitchen. Many thanks
We can wholeheartedly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. Rob’s design works brilliantly, and his team did an excellent job.
We are delighted with the new kitchen and have lots of complimentary comments from our friends!
The communication throughout the installation work was very good so we knew what to expect and when. Also the work was done in an orderly manner without any frustrating delays.
We would be happy to give a positive reference to any potential customers.
Thank you for my kitchen – it is fantastic. You have no idea of the difference such a great design makes. It all looks great.; the room works really well and flows beautifully into work/cooking/relaxing space. It has been described as “inspirational”! Nobody can resist stroking the work surface and opening and closing drawers! Excellent workmanship and quality – thank you.
I couldn’t have been more delighted with the whole process from design to installation.
I shopped around a lot before I contacted Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens and it was worth it. The quality of craftsmanship, the attention to detail, the good communication and absolute reliability of Rob and his team combined to make the experience of having a new kitchen as painless and rewarding as it can be. My kitchen is a pleasure to cook in and visitors love its imaginative but unobtrusive design features, its light and warm feel, and the way it makes best use of the available space.
I wholeheartedly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
We have never had a new kitchen before and really invested in this one in terms of thought and care. We felt that Rob and his team were with us all the way, giving us time to talk, and change our minds, and look at samples umpteen times before deciding. All the advice given was impeccable, and nothing was too much trouble. The workmanship is outstanding. All the workers who came into our house were great.
The outcome is stunning – a really beautiful room, which also seems incredibly robust. That is where we now live our lives. Enough said. Thank you.
Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens was recommended to me and I was very impressed with the ethics of the company and with Rob’s friendly, knowledgeable and helpful approach. He listened to what I hoped to achieve and, together, we arrived at a design that fitted an amazing number of units and appliances into a small space. Rob was happy to project manage all the trades – including plastering, tiling and decorating, which took a weight off my mind.
Kate in the office and all the tradespeople were great and I now have a kitchen that I enjoy working in and that I am proud to show to visitors. Thank you Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens!
We highly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. Rob helped us design a wonderfully functional kitchen. He project-managed major structural works and had an excellent team of tradespeople to carry out the different jobs. He listened to our ideas and thoughts on how things could be and suggested clever solutions including worktops at various heights to suit us and to take accessibility issues into consideration. Rob has incorporated traditional features that we wanted to save and helped maximise our storage space. He helped us to choose the right appliances for our requirements and eco friendly units and work-tops. We were pleased with his suggestion to use recycled glass worktops and the latest energy efficient lighting.
We wanted to express our gratitude to the way you and your marvelous team put our kitchen back together.
We were so downhearted when we went back to bare bricks and mortar, but your team of professionals were so good at allaying our fears and made that awful experience bearable. The kitchen was up and running in three weeks. I never thought it would have been possible.
We wish to thank you for your wonderful planning and a big thank you to Kate who was always there at the end of the phone to answer any questions (and there were many). It was always nice to have a friendly person to talk to. Once again, thanks to Luke, Stuart, Kyle, Brent, Martin and Ian, yourself and Kate – it has been a pleasure to have met you all.
Thank you… Many thanks to your fitters for who nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. I am very happy with our kitchen and utility. It still looks like new, easy to keep clean and very practical to use.
About the now two-year-old kitchen:
I like everything about the kitchen. It's easy to keep clean, which was a priority for me and it looks good. I love the larder cupboard in the utility, it's so useful and a space saver when I think how many cupboards I'd need for the stuff I keep in there. The kitchen is a joy to cook in and I'm always looking for gadgets and bits to complement it. There was a solution to every problem and I always felt included in the process.
Although I looked to Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens for their expertise, it was important to me that I could add my thoughts; after all, it's my kitchen. This may seem obvious, but past experiences when I've had improvements done have sometimes left me feeling out of control.
I would definitely recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens
We are very happy with our kitchen, it wasn't re-designed too much so we can't talk about that but the things we did ask for work really well. I think the final design worked because of the whole consultation process. We felt we were listened to and when we were hesitating and changing our minds not rushed through it. We were made to feel it was alright and not any trouble.
We are very happy with our new kitchen - I love it. Everyone who has worked on it for us has been wonderful. Thanks to you all.
Sheffield Sustainable Kitchen’s have given us the most beautiful, health enhancing cooking, dining and entertaining space. We would like to say how stress free we have found the whole process. Thanks to all your team. We truly love it... to be fair I try hard never to leave it!.
More than a year on, I am still delighted with my kitchen. Most of all, I just love how the kitchen actually fits the space - having the bespoke design makes such a difference. I love the cupboards up to the ceiling, it looks really smart, and also the narrower cupboards and worktop on the wall where previously we had nothing, makes a huge difference.
I would definitely recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. I felt that Rob was very responsive to our needs, and patient when we were making all our choices. We couldn't fault the team who came out and did the work - we felt we were in capable hands.
For us this was the biggest house job we've ever had done (and certainly the most expensive) so it was potentially quite scary, especially when everything was first ripped out and the room looked awful. However we felt we had full confidence in the team, they just got on with it with a friendly can-do attitude, and were a pleasure to have around the house
The team at Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens have created a brilliant combination - a kitchen that looks and feels wonderful, is sustainable, and is a joy to cook in. The attention to detail is what makes it special. Its design is elegant and Rob has made use of every scrap of space. Rob, Stuart and Luke went out of their way to make the process as painless as possible and to accommodate all our needs. Every time I walk through the door it brings a smile to my face.
Rob and all the team from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens did an absolutely fantastic job with designing and fitting our kitchen into our new extension. Rob's approach to design was extremely professional especially when he initially only had our building plans to go on. He listened to and incorporated our own requirements and brought some great ideas of his own which all work now the design has been realised. The design even accommodated the reuse of many of the cabinets from our existing kitchen which was an added bonus cost wise.
The quality of the workmanship is of the highest quality and, if the banter was anything to go by, Rob, Stuart and the rest of the guys worked really well with our builders and were very accommodating given some of the unavoidable design changes and logistic difficulties faced at the time.
The finished kitchen looks stunning but more importantly it all works. The curved oak breakfast bar being a particular highlight and a credit to Rob's design. We now have a room that is more than just a kitchen, its a great space to be in.
Oh, almost forgot, Rob and the team also did a great job on our bathroom too! Thanks guys, thoroughly recommended.
My kitchen looks absolutely great and lives up to my expectation, it even seems a lot bigger, and is way more functional than it was before. I wanted something that suited my house, was a bit quirky as well as making the best use of the space.
When Rob came round he really listened to me. He was happy to talk through various design solutions and for me to take my time making decisions. He gave lots of useful advice, brought lots of samples to look at, and arranged to go and look at a kitchen he’d fitted for someone else.
It’s had a lot of admiration from friends and neighbours and I couldn’t be more pleased.
We used Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens to redesign and install our kitchen. From the beginning they were helpful and respectful of our wishes and budget. They were extremely helpful in the design stage and used their experience to suggest workable and pleasing solutions. They were happy to work around the appliances we wanted to keep. The building work was done by their usual team and they minimised disruption very effectively. When they came across unanticipated difficulties with the foundations they worked to remedy this immediately and the quality of their work was excellent. The installation team were brilliant, as were the flooring installers.
Throughout the whole process the project manager kept in regular contact and was easily contactable. It was obvious the whole team were aware of the project whenever we phoned the office.
We are delighted with our kitchen and we would wholeheartedly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
We very happy with our kitchen. From the design process through to completion Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens were really helpful and flexible. When on site they made suggestions and kept me informed and involved all the way through. All of the team and their contractors are great, professional and friendly. Would highly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens for a personable and creative approach to kitchen design.
Many thanks for the lovely kitchen you and your team provided.
May I say I found it refreshing to meet such conscientious, hard-working individuals over the course of the installation. I found you trustworthy, honest and your level of communication was exceptional. You went above and beyond what was necessary, both during and after the build, which is a rare quality these days. Aside from the seamless finish, excellent quality in workmanship and attention to detail, I found your approach and manner very professional.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you in future. Thanks again. Warm regards.
A really worthwhile job… Thanks to Rob we’ve managed to reuse our existing units, modifying and adding to them, creating a remodelled kitchen that fixes all those little annoyances we have lived with for 25 years, and it looks really nice too.
Thanks to everyone at Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens – it’s been a pleasure having them around.
I'm delighted with my new kitchen from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. From start to finish, they showed a great eye for design, a perfectionist attention to detail, a genuine pride in doing excellent work. The whole team was a pleasure to work with, and they installed the kitchen quickly and skilfully. I'd strongly recommend them.
We were very pleased with the work that Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens did for us.
It was a trouble-free, hassle-free experience throughout, from the initial planning where Rob made a tremendous job of translating our loose thoughts into a firm specifications, through dealing with our building challenges in a calm and confident matter. All the members of the team were extremely skilled, hard-working and tidy.
We would recommend them without reservation.
About her two-and-half year old kitchen:
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give my kitchen a 12. There is nothing I would do again differently.
I love my kitchen. All of it. It’s very lovely. I would, and do recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
I now have a lovely kitchen thanks to Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. The standard of the work, quality of the finish and attention to detail are excellent. Everyone I had contact with was courteous, professional, friendly and caring and it was a pleasure to have them in my house.
We fully recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens to anyone who is looking not only to change their kitchen, but who is also looking for both quality and innovation together with excellent service from start to finish.
We are very happy with the kitchen. Pretty much every day I think how good the kitchen is, and this is largely due to the work of Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
Most of all, I like the bespoke units that make fantastic use of the space available and the quality finish.
The process took a little longer than anticipated but we were kept quite well informed, so we managed. I would recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens without hesitation.
I had been wanting to make a number of changes to my kitchen for some time, but wanted to keep most of my existing cupboards. Rob and Olly listened carefully to what I wanted and made very helpful suggestions about worktops, appliances and lighting, and also made additional shelving to match my existing cupboards. I was given a clear timetable showing what would happen when and who would be involved and the process was well managed and responsive.
What we love most about our kitchen is that it is so unobtrusive. Rob did a great job on a design that really suits the room and enables us to cook, eat and live in the same space. It is very simple and yet it has the wow factor. The reclaimed worktop is a real eye-catcher. Everyone loves it!
The kitchen was installed in stages whilst we were still building an extension and was a life-saver; the Sheffield Sustainable Ktichens team worked really well with our builders. Proper teamwork and a great result all round.
Heartfelt thanks as the kitchen really works well for us - I keep forgetting it's a kitchen!
We are very happy with our kitchen and would certainly recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens to other people. We don't think we would have done anything differently: the detailed discussions with Rob clarified what we wanted. We like the recycled glass worktops most, because they are easy to look after and look stunning.
Absolutely delighted with the service and the product from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
The design phase did take a couple of weeks but it was 100% worth the wait. "A kitchen should last 20 years and is the most expensive room in your house, so why the rush?" This was sage advice from SSK and just what we needed as an antidote to the pressure to 'act now' and 'buy cheap' that we got everywhere else we went to.
Indeed their personalised guidance and expertise on materials, colours and layout were very welcome and the company patiently took time to understand our desire for something 'on-trend' that nevertheless had enduring appeal and made use of natural and eco-friendly materials. Also unlike most, our requests for bespoke bits of design such as curves and custom shelving did not phase them. However, the superb quality of their designers really shone through when the detailed full colour renders (far better than we got from another provider) of how the finished kitchen would look, came through.
Their vision was absolutely spot on. From that moment on, there was no going back. In fact it was plain sailing - pricing was clear and all phases from ordering to delivery were well managed and executed on time. The kitchen is a delight to use and guests are constantly being wowed by the look of it. We are so glad we chose the right provider and would encourage others looking for something a bit special, a bit different, or just for a more ethical and personable approach, to give them a try..
I am very happy with the kitchen. It's very attractive to look at, with units well-sited, so ergonomic. All in all, I am very satisfied with the end result and after care, and would be happy to recommend Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens to anyone wanting their dream kitchen.
