If you're looking for a bespoke kitchen design that meets your unique needs and exceeds your expectations, look no further.

From the very beginning, Corinne was professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. She took the time to understand our needs, preferences, and lifestyle, which allowed her to create a truly tailored design that met our unique requirements. The design process was seamless, with Corinne keeping us informed every step of the way. She was always available to answer questions, make changes, and provide guidance when needed.

The whole process of installing a new kitchen was incredibly easy and friendly with the Smile team.

Martyn was very helpful, and gave good advice on on getting the most our relatively small space. The kitchen arrived on time and communication was always good through out. Our fitters were also very impressed with bottle quality of the units and the reliability of the delivery.

We went to several different companies and they were by far the best.

The service smile provide is amazing! Izzy our designer really listened and got our vision. She prepped before the initial call which saved time - unlike all the other companies we went to. Izzy added value and offered suggestions, which again none of the other companies really did. Nothing was too much trouble and multiple edits to the design were accommodated with no issues at all. Communication was excellent - Izzy kept us up to date but was never pushy. We would definitely recommend.

As the design is 3D it really brings it to life. No pushy selling.

A really straightforward experience. Online planning appointment, that lasts about a hour, where you can set out all your must haves and would likes. Jane went through various styles including the hardware and worktops so she could put samples in the post. The design follows shortly after with another appointment to review and make any changes. As the design is 3D it really brings it to life. No pushy selling.

Great designs at a great price

We did extensive research when planning our new kitchen, getting design appointments and quotes at all of the well known mid-range suppliers, as well as various online suppliers and local specialists. Smile were the last option we came across and were the most impressive. Our designer, Huse, spotted several potential issues and solutions in our design that none of the others had spotted across months of planning, and the Zoom call was helpful and personable. When the quote came through it was 15-50% lower than our quotes for Wren, Magnet, Howdens and Benchmarx which were the same design and similar spec.

A lovely experience

Jane and the team at Smile Kitchens were a breath of fresh air after a disappointing experience elsewhere. From initial enquiry to design, Jane made everything straightforward, truly listening to my preferences without making me feel like I was being fussy. The samples brought to my home simplified decision-making immensely. Despite a major flood post-installation, the after-sales team handled issues with ease. With the cabinets unaffected by water damage, I'm eagerly awaiting my new cabinet doors and can't wait to see my dream kitchen come to life. Highly recommend :)

Corinne was very fast to understand my vision and make it reality.

We are moving the whole kitchen to a different room and it's been a long and painful process but I have to say the easiest part of it has been the actual kitchen planning. We're expecting delivery for our new kitchen end of next month and can't wait! We decided to go with Linje Groove & Doll. The whole planning process has been relatively easy and Corinne has been very responsive to all our enquiries and changes and overall lovely person to deal with. I have anything but traditional personal taste and also had quite a clear idea how I want my kitchen to look and practicality of it.

The consultancy and planning process is very efficient and non pressured.

Sian our designer was very friendly and helpful throughout the planning stage and was so patient at dealing with our many changes of mind. She offered good support and ideas for planning our small kitchen, making the best of the space available but within budget. Smile also offer an excellent free sample service. Our samples arrived within 2 days and it was so good to be able to really scrutinise them in our own time at home before making our decision.

Martyn and the whole team have been amazing to deal with.

I am expecting delivery of my kitchen at the end of March. It has been a far better experience than my mum has had dealing with Wren in person so far! The quality of the samples looks and feels great and I am excited to see the final product.

Amazing experience!

Our experience from start to finish with Natalie was fantastic. So much easier than previous kitchen companies we've worked with and being able to do the calls via video call, really does help speed the process along.

FAQs

What are the benefits of choosing a black kitchen colour scheme?

Choosing a black kitchen colour scheme has numerous benefits. Black is associated with elegance and sophistication, which can instantly enhance the visual appeal of any space. It is a timeless backdrop that blends seamlessly with different design styles, from sleek modern to rustic chic. Additionally, black surfaces and cabinetry are known for their versatility, allowing you to create striking contrasts or subtle harmonies with other elements in your kitchen design.

What finishes are available for black kitchen cabinetry?

Our black kitchens are available in a range of different styles and finishes. We have two different tones – Coal and Onyx. If you’re looking for a painted wood grain finish, you can choose from our shaker ranges Vard and Jenson, our in-frame range Hampton, or our true handleless range Linje. We also have smooth vinyl-wrapped ranges Hambleton and Fnissa which provide a slim shaker or a slab option. Our Jasper range is available in shade Onyx too, which is a smooth matt painted j-pull door.

Which accessories pair well with a black kitchen?

When it comes to selecting handles and worktops for your black kitchen, attention to detail is paramount. Choose handles that complement the sleek sophistication of your black cabinetry, opting for finishes like brushed brass, chrome or matte black to create a cohesive look.

With worktops, consider materials that not only complement the boldness of your black cabinetry but also provide durability and functionality. Quartz worktops in shades of grey or white offer a striking contrast to black cabinetry while providing resilience against stains and scratches. Alternatively, solid wood worktops can create a more rustic look by adding texture and depth to the space

Are there any challenges specific to designing and maintaining a black kitchen?

Black kitchens offer unparalleled elegance and sophistication, but there are some things to keep in mind during the design and maintenance process. To prevent a black kitchen from feeling too dark, incorporating ample lighting and contrasting elements is essential. Black surfaces may require regular cleaning to maintain their sleek appearance and minimise the visibility of fingerprints and smudges. However, with careful planning and attention to detail, these considerations can be easily addressed, ensuring that your black kitchen remains a timeless centerpiece of your home
