A colour for every kitchen

With the largest colour choice of any range, Vard comes in 17 rich and noteworthy finishes. Keep your kitchen classic with a crisp clean Chalk, an earthy Clay or luscious green Eden. Liven things up with modern blue Spring or Juniper. Or go wild with Doll pink.

In addition, we now have a new colour-matching service that allows us to create custom colours for a truly personalised colour. All you need to do is give us a reference, such as a paint reference or a RAL code, and we will help you create your perfect shade.

A sophisticated style

Vard - meaning care in Swedish - is all about loving design and attention to detail. Solid shaker-style timber doors combine with slim rails and a narrow frame to create a contemporary look that’s rooted in traditional elegance.

Luxury painted timber

Taking care to use only the highest quality materials, these solid, painted timber doors are built to stand the test of time. When it’s time for a refresh, the luxury finish can be easily repainted and handles simply swapped out to create a new look and feel.

Space you never knew you had

Storage solutions

Cooking in your kitchen should feel natural and intuitive, with every inch of space used as efficiently as possible. Our integrated storage solutions pull corners out, tilt shelves down and help minimise food waste. Find what you need quicker and only buy what you need.

Shhh...

Soft close as standard

Ditch the bangs, clatters and slams in favour of effortless silence, with soft closing doors and drawers as standard across our range. Enjoy peace, quiet and added longevity with hinges safe from bumps, jolts and misalignment.

The finishing touches

These are the accessory ranges we recommend for this kitchen.

How we work

Connect with our expert designers from the comfort of your home and bring your dream kitchen vision to life.

Planning your kitchen

Browse our site and explore our kitchens, then book a consultation with our designers. They will ask about the scope of your project and share inspiration, ideas, and ways to optimise your space.

Creating your design

Your designer will present your design with a 3D walkthrough and a full breakdown of costs. We'll make amendments until the design aligns perfectly with your vision, and we'll also send you samples of doors, handles, and worktops.

Placing your order

When you are 100% happy with the design, we'll send out a design pack for your fitter to double-check. Once everything is finalised, lets arrange a call to run through every detail and place your order.

FAQ's

What’s included in the design service?

What isn’t included?! You’ll have your very own 1-on-1 dedicated kitchen designer who will listen to your needs, get to know you, and offer expert design advice throughout your project. Your designer will send free samples, tweak your design as many times as you need, and provide high-quality renders of your design alongside a video walkthrough. We’ll provide a fully itemised transparent quote as well as technical elevations for your fitter to check. Plus, you’ll receive access to our brand partner’s discount codes! If you decide to order your kitchen with us, the initial £25 payment for your design consultation is taken off the cost of your kitchen PLUS we give you another £100 off.

How long does my design consultation last?

We book 1 hour for your online design consultation – plenty of time to discuss your project and chat with your personal designer.

Does your service include free samples?

Yes! After your design consultation, your designer will send you free samples including door colours, cabinet internals, worktops, and handles. The only chargeable sample is for the bespoke colour match service, where there will be a fee of £30 per door sample which is refundable upon ordering.

Do I have to buy my kitchen from you?

There’s absolutely no obligation to buy a kitchen from us after having a design! We’re a team of designers, not salespeople, so you’ll never be pressured into buying anything here. We always recommend getting quotes from different suppliers before purchasing, so you can feel confident in your decision. We’re committed to keeping our prices low all year round, and we’re with you throughout your project.

What are the next steps after my design consultation?

Following your design consultation, your designer will take your brief and start designing. They will arrange a time that suits you for a design presentation, ideally the following week, where they will present the design to you and talk you through the quote breakdown. After this meeting, you will receive the design, 3D walkthrough, floor plan, and a fully itemised quote. You can share the link to your 3D walkthrough with your friends and family for feedback!

Do you supply and fit kitchens?

Yes and no. We supply all the kitchen furniture you need to transform your room – from cupboards and handles to worktops, sinks and taps. We then work with your chosen fitters – any trusted local installer you’d like  – sharing everything they need, all the small details to support your fit every step of the way. We deliver your new kitchen, then work hand in hand with your fitter to make sure everything goes super smoothly.

What range of worktops do you offer?

The real question here is “what type of worktop would you like?” We stock a huge range of worktops in a laminate and Minerva but if you love a super sleek Quartz top or a rustic wooden counter, we’ve got great supply partners to bring you any type of worktop you’d like.

Where do your names come from for your kitchen ranges?

If you hadn’t guessed yet, we absolutely love the concept of Hygge and the Danish approach to warm, cozy living. So we draw on all those Scandavian influences to name our kitchen ranges. Don’t worry, we still don’t really know how to pronounce Hygge (Higgy? Huggy? Hyoo-guh?), so we’re happy to go with whatever you call our range – we’ve heard every variation (and every one sounds wonderful!)

Do your units come supplied rigid or flat packed?

A great question, because you’ll be wondering how much space you need to make for the delivery (and how much work your fitter might need to do). Almost all our units are supplied rigid and ready to fit. You’ll need a good amount of space ready for the units. We have a small number of units that have to be flat-packed due to their size however we’ll be sure to let you know in your quote if this is the case.

Do you offer bespoke sized units/doors?

We’ve got such an extensive range of kitchens that we can always try to accommodate your space. When we design your kitchen, we make sure everything fits snug as a bug.

Do you supply appliances?

We don’t currently supply appliances, and there’s a really good reason why. We’re brilliant at designing kitchens, but not so good at manufacturing washing machines and fridges. So let’s leave that to the appliance experts. Our designers will help you create the perfect appliance-shaped gaps in your custom kitchen design, and our partners at AO.com will happily fill them. And because we work closely together, you’ll get a lovely 10% discount off any appliances you fancy.

How do I know my new/existing appliances will fit into my kitchen design?

Easy! We’ll tell you. We’ll check for you. And then we’ll double check. We’ve been doing this a long time, and we know how the vast majority of appliances are sized (they’re actually all fairly standard). But just to be certain – send us the measurements of your appliances (or just the model number and we’ll go Googling to get the details) – and we’ll make sure they fit snugly into your new kitchen designs.

How long are your kitchen quotes valid for?

Our price quotes are valid for 30 days from the date of quotation. Should your design change as part of the amendment process, we will provide an updated quote and honour the prices provided at the time of original quote as long as it is within the original 30 day quotation period.

Why do you charge for your design service?

The honest answer to this is that we think it’s more than worth it! Your design consultation is with a qualified designer, not a salesperson. The quality of service you will receive from your designer – their care and attention to detail in creating your design and the high-quality renders of your designed space plus a 3D walkthrough and fully itemised easy to understand quote are worth paying for. Plus if you’re not 100% happy with it, we’ll refund you the design service fee.

Do you offer an at home measuring service?

We don’t currently have a home measuring service, but we do have wonderful designers who help walk you through the whole process to measure your kitchen yourself. And then we’ll ask your fitters to double check and verify all those measurements themselves too, just to make sure. Any professional fitter will want to take their own measurements so we verify every inch. Only when you’re happy, your fitter’s happy and we’re happy, do we move ahead with the order process.

What if I have measured wrong?

We’ll be double and triple checking every measurement, so don’t worry. Your chosen fitter will want to measure everything themselves too (if they don’t, we’ll give them a nudge), and then any measurements that were a bit skew-whiff, we’ll rejig the designs and update the quote. No worries at all.

Why do I need an online design consultation?

So you can design your dream kitchen in your pyjamas? So you can browse brilliant new kitchens without leaving your current one (and sneak whatever snacks you like)? So you can get to know our amazing designers one on one? All great reasons why we like to have a design consultation with you. Most importantly, a video call helps us get to know each other and clearly understand your vision for a new kitchen. And it means we can share our screens and walk through a 3D visualisation of your transformed room together.

How much is the deposit?

We don’t ask for a deposit on any of our kitchens – you don’t have to pay for your kitchen until it’s delivered in full and you are 100% happy! We’ve never had a customer not pay for their kitchen we’ve delivered!

What method of payment can I use?

We have a secure online payment system for you to pay for your new kitchen when it’s delivered. We accept the following payments:

  • Visa credit and debit
  • MasterCard credit and debit
  • American Express
  • Bank transfer

Do you have a fitting service?

We don’t have a fitting service, so you’re free to choose any local trusted fitter you like. Many of our customers like to get a few different quotes from fitters, and we’re more than happy to sense-check any quotes for you, helping you find the right fitter for the right value.

Do you provide instructions for installation?

Absolutely. We might not have a fitting service, but we send out a comprehensive fitting pack for your installers. It’ll have all the instructions and drawings they need, but just in case that isn’t enough, we’ll be sure to have a chat with them too. And we’re always here to answer any questions or help in any way we can during the fit too.

How long have you been open?

We opened the doors to our new way of designing and supplying kitchens in 2020 (though we’d been putting the groundwork in a long time before that). Our team has decades of experience in kitchen design, and our founder has been working with kitchens for so long, he’s become a permanent fixture.

Where do you deliver?

We deliver to the mainland UK. Please note this excludes Northern Ireland.

Where are you based?

Our designers work from home, so you might be chatting to them in Newcastle or Newquay, Kent or Kendal. Our HQ is in Greater Manchester.

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.

The Smile designer has been terrific

I began my kitchen renovation project about 2 years ago and had been directed to Smile by an architectural company. The Smile designer has been terrific keeping to my budget, has listened carefully to me, and above all interpreted, and improved, my initial ideas into a viable kitchen design.

She listened to what we wanted and came up with a wonderful design for us.

Jane was so helpful and lovely. We were on a tight timeframe and she got samples out to us incredibly quickly. She listened to what we wanted and came up with a wonderful design for us. She also wasn't uncomfortably pushy like other companies we dealt with. It was a pleasure dealing with her.

Jane kept all the features we loved and helped us think about the space in a new way.

Jane was fantastic. We had seen another (well known) kitchen designer before Smile Kitchens but we didn't go with them because after only 15 mins Jane came up with an even better design than the previous people did after a number of hours! Jane kept all the features we loved and helped us think about the space in a new way. She also sent samples ahead of time, which helped to see the options in real life. Thanks Jane & Smile Kitchens!

Exceptionally engaging, without pressure!

What a breath of fresh air our designer Corinne has been helping us working towards our dream kitchen. From planning, to door / quartz samples being sent out. It’s felt exciting without any pressure put on us. Also any final tweaks that are necessary to achieve exactly what we’re looking for. Thank you to Corinne & team!

Couldn't recommend more! The whole design process has been amazing.

I haven't ordered my kitchen yet but the whole design process has been amazing. Jane my designer has put up with my millions of changes and blown me away with solutions to any problems I may have. The fact that there are no pushy sales techniques is a breath of fresh air. I can't wait to see my kitchen come to life! I'd highly recommend Smile Kitchens.

Great experience from start to finish

Design service was the best we encountered during our early investigations for a kitchen supplier. As we moved from design to installation phase, communications were excellent. Delivery of kitchen was on time. Our delivery was missing an item but one call to the installations team at Smile and it was all sorted. Our Kitchen fitter who had not encountered the Smile kitchen before commented on the good quality of the cabinets and the kitchen itself was easy to install.

Kitchen planned by a designer and not pushy salespeople.

Happy to talk through options and alter things until you're satisfied. The samples they send through the post give you reassurance about their quality. Would definitely recommend and grateful we found them too!

The process and service was fantastic from start to finish.

I really can’t give enough praise to Smile Kitchens. Corinne was professional and patient, as I made quite a few changes along the way! I did a lot of research and I knew what I wanted but couldn’t achieve it in budget until I found Smile, I actually think the online process was far superior to going through the regular showroom experience and way less hassle doing it all on zoom. Value for money really is unbeatable if you want to create a bespoke looking kitchen on a tight budget and spend on the finishing touches.

Why look elsewhere?

I just had a good feeling about Smile right from the start and I wasn't disappointed. Jane our designer was patient and so helpful. Natalie was brilliant and always kept us informed. The delivery driver (sorry didn't get his name) was a star as well. All of this wouldn't have meant much if the kitchen wasn't good. But it was all great. And at half the price of other suppliers and at better quality too. Why look anywhere else. I have complete faith in recommending Smile Kitchens to anyone, We feel really smug when we show our Vard kitchen to friends. Thanks to everyone at Smile. They certainly put a smile on our face.

- Richard

Excellent service and value for money

Smile made everything really easy, from booking the initial design appointment to ordering samples and deciding on the final design. We didn’t ever feel pressured or like we were being sold to. Corinne listened to our preferences and was patient in making the last few final tweaks to the design. I would recommend Smile to anyone wanting a fuss free and value for money service.

- Louise

No pressure process and beautiful result

Friendly and professional team with excellent customer service. Martyn worked with us to design our kitchen and was helpful with all our questions along the way. Much better service than other companies we spoke with, less sales pressure and cheaper cabinets than competitors, but they don't look cheap at all. Cannot comment on durability yet, though, as they've only been installed for 3 weeks.

So impressed with the service I received as well as the quality offered

I worked with Corinne to design our new kitchen for our renovation and she was fantastic! She was so patient throughout the whole process of changing the design multiple times due to changes in the build and the space. I was so impressed with the service I received as well as the quality offered for the price that they have! We are so excited to get our new kitchen and couldn't recommend Smile Kitchens more!

- Sophia

Fantastic design process

Fantastic process - Izzy was extremely helpful and thoughtful in planning our kitchen, and we went through lots of iterations of the design together. The price seems very reasonable, and all of the information and design pack supplied are extremely clear. Haven't had the final kitchen installed yet, but the design process was great.
