Has anyone got the Wickes Heritage Bone kitchen?

I'm currently in the process of designing a new kitchen & am thinking of getting the Heritage Bone kitchen from Wickes but I was just wondering if anyone here has it? Are the cabinets good quality? I'm worried that because it's (off) white it will be quite high maintenance! Also, what worktop did you go for? Any advice would be much appreciated!!

I've got those kitchen units but in sage, with emerald pearl granite counter

I'll try to add a picture to this message, was taken when kitchen just fitted

Had the units in for 6 months and no issues (touch wood), I found the best thing with kitchens is the fitter- a quality fitter installs the kitchen correctly and that helps it to last

As for the bone colour, I was split between that and sage and only went for sage as there is a lot of brown or cream in the house already

Thanks so much for your response Dadsussex. Love the emerald pearl granite worktop - is it high maintenance? I heard that dark granite worktops show water marks very easily! Also, how is the maintenance of the cupboards? I'm worried with the bone colour, I'll have to clean it lots & it will start to discolour / paint will fade! Thanks again

For granite not really a big issue, just buff it with a microfibre cloth when a mark shows, go for a dark pattern granite rather than solid black will help

Don't order granite via wickes, go to worktops.org

It's roughly half price via the above, they are the inline suppliers for Sheridan (spell check) whom supply wickes!! Great service and excellent quality. They send a chap around with a laser measuring device in order to get perfect measurement, see photo

As for cupboards and cleaning, 2 kids and a springer spaniel here and just wipe the units as and when and had no issues at all

Dadsussex your kitchen looks really nice.
Do wickes provide fitters also?

Yes they can but again double the price of you finding someone to do it for you

Get some recommendations locally and get a fitter to fit its so much cheaper

Basically buy cabinets from wickes and maybe handles, get any granite or solid wood tops from elsewhere and arrange your own fitter and tiler

My fitter was also a tiler, off top of head to have units fitted and tiling fitted including decent adhesive was under £500

Worktops fitter by granite company in their price

I bought tiles and grout myself

I also did a big bathroom project at same time too, in total from wickes and bathroom company all in prices I was able to save £10k from buying bits seperately and arranging my own fitters!

If your in Somerset or Sussex I can recommend people

But tbh it's easy to get tradesmen on recommendation

It was our second choice kitchen in the end (the forerunner for a long while until I saw their Glencoe Larch show kitchen which just photographed craply in the brochures but looked so nice in reality that I fell for it) - we've had our Wickes kitchen in a year and it's holding up nicely, but we didn't get their fitting service.
