Classic kitchens direct

Has any purchased a kitchen from CKD? Looking for feedback regarding the pricing (compared to it's rivals!) and quality of the kitchen. One of the difference, i found was the HMKOC use tulipwood and CKD used an oak plywood (please correct me if I'm wrong!). Is one type of wood better than the other, in terms of longevity? Any other hidden gems that you suggest to get a quote from? I basically was a top notch kitchen with a knock down price (like everyone else!). Thank you soooo much in advance!

Hi just asking if you went with CKD in the end and how you found them?

I didn't in the end, as it was a bit over my budget. They were very good at responding to queries. They offer an option to assemble the units yourself, which is great if you are on a budget. I would recommend that you visit their showroom, they are located in Christchurch and London.

Yes have used them - quality is great - very happy with whole process and have recommended them a lot to others
they have a new website with all prices clearly visible now which is great

So classic kitchens cabinets are made from plywood as opposed to DIYkitchens which are made of mdf, so classic is more durable, is it? How do they compare price wise to other hardwood kitchens...

Plywood is way more durable, stronger and water resistant, it costs around 3 times the price of MDF - that’s why lots don’t use it. Technically the kitchens from classic kitchens are amazing, and they also look great

CKD do two ranges of inframe kitchens. The premium (cheaper, not bespoke, made in China) is partly made of plywood. Their classic bespoke range is partly made of oak veneered MDF, manufactured in the UK. There is a significant price difference between the two, which makes sense, as the second option is bespoke and manufactured in the UK. That's not to say that there is anything wrong with the premium range. It would be best to go and look at their kitchens in the showroom and compare to other similar companies.
