  • Complete new kitchen!

    10Verified Review

    After Peter installed my own kitchen earlier this year I recommended him to my mother as she needed a complete kitchen renewal, and it's been another brilliant project! Peter organised the new design, the electricians and plasterer, ripped out the old kitchen and then fitted a whole new kitchen, worktops and appliances, all on time, on budget and with complete expertise. The kitchen is in a retirement property were there were certain access restrictions but nothing was too much trouble. Peter made it all so easy, another fantastic experience!

  • Replaced kitchen and utility room

    10Verified Review

    We can highly recommend Peter if you are looking for a skilled tradesman. Peter was a cabinet maker by trade and you could see this in his workmanship and eye for detail. Peter sourced his own electricians, plasterers and worktop specialists, who all worked to his schedule. Peter always kept us advised of progress and made sure we had the least disruption throughput the project. It was a pleasure having Peter in our house, he was totally reliable, friendly and respectful.

  • Fitted new kitchen

    10Verified Review

    Peter took out my old kitchen and fitted a new one. Peter is super friendly and professional, and the quality of his work is top notch! He coordinated the other trades, was really easy to work with, and I completely trusted him. I was very happy with my new kitchen, and would definitely recommend Principle Kitchens!

  • Kitchen fitting

    10Verified Review

    Peter did an fantastic job fitting our new kitchen. He was organised and managed the plasterer, electrician and flooring company so that the work was completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Communication was good and any complications were dealt with the minimum of fuss. The workmanship was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend Principle Kitchens to anyone looking for a kitchen fitter.

  • Kitchen renovation

    10Verified Review

    I contacted Peter after reading some great reviews here, and I was not disappointed. We were renovating our kitchen with a mixture of requirements. We had the cabinetry designed but needed an expert to install them; refurbing the kitchen island with new doors and panels; relocating the old cupboards; needed new worktops and then tiling the entire kitchen floor. His own work was excellent, carried out with great care and attention to detail and his extra recommendations were fantastic. Peter was brilliant and handled the entire project with ease. Totally recommended, and I already have!

    We're thrilled with our kitchen from Principle Kitchens. Peter offered great advice and solutions to problems quickly, adapting to any curveballs. He's got a great network of people he brings in for various jobs that he's clearly got strong relationships with. Attention to detail and quality of work was fab, and reliability and courtesy also faultless. He really wanted to make sure we were happy before wrapping up the job. I would highly recommend Principle Kitchens.
