What our clients say
Just a few of our happy customers
We simply love our new kitchen. John and his team were amazingly patient in working and re-working the design until we had something with which we were completely happy. They made many suggestions that we would never have thought of (such as built-in bins and crockery drawers instead of cupboards) and persuaded us to think boldly at times. But they also listened very carefully to what we wanted and incorporated our ideas such as rounded corners and cornices and a herb drawer.
The standard of materials used, the workmanship and project management were outstanding. The result is a stunning kitchen which is a delight to be in and the envy of our friends and family. All in all we can very highly recommend John and the team at Dovetail.
Stephen and Kate Wilson
We were delighted with the kitchen that Dovetail built for us. It was a difficult space with some very strange angled walls but John Kirby came up with some creative solutions and managed to incorporate everything that we wanted. We wanted the kitchen to have a contemporary feel, but not to stray away from traditional materials. We were very pleased with the result. The kitchen was also built on time and within budget.
First of all you gently made us think out of the box, and you were quite right. Then you designed a kitchen which precisely met our requirements. And then you produced and installed a product of the very highest quality. The process was enjoyable and the result provides endless pleasure.
Anthony and Rosemary Thorne
When we set on the road to upgrade our kitchen we initially approached four kitchen companies. We met with all four and explained that, whilst one of the clients was an architect and a plan form had been decided, we were looking for an innovative approach, high quality design and workmanship, not a standard fit-out from a brochure and we were offering a blank canvas.
Dovetail was recommended to us by close friends and John Kirby and his team met the brief, they were alone in this. The design was innovative and we enjoyed the relationship of working up the design, selecting materials and details with them. The attention to detail was fantastic and the finished product, recently featured in Beautiful Kitchens magazine, is testament to a fabulous job.
From the very start to the final fitting the service and quality was faultless and with the architect client background we were naturally going to be demanding the best and that is exactly what we got.
John and Rita Cooper
Our Dovetail kitchen continues to delight us on a daily basis – we live in it! There is nothing I want to change and this is down to John’s design skills and his patience in divining our needs and coming up with a practical and good-looking solution. Nothing was too much trouble. He even took me to choose the slabs of granite to be used for the worktops.
Our kitchen was ready on time and not a penny over budget. The installation went very smoothly and, if any problems did crop up, they were overcome without us hearing about them. When I think of Dovetail the word ‘solid’ comes to mind. Their furniture is solid and so is their service .
Dovetail designed and fitted my kitchen nine years ago. John Kirby was great to work with through the whole process from the ideas stage through to completion. I feel my kitchen has stood the test of time and it looks as good now as it did when it was installed.
