A good experience from start to finish!
My designer, Caroline was very patient, with great attention to detail. I changed my mind several times before achieving the final design and she readily accommodated me here whilst offered valuable advice on both the aesthetics and functionality. The end product was only marginally outside budget and considering it included a whole range of appliances plus over 8 metres of units and worktop - I believe it represents reasonable value for money.
As we were carrying out an extensive building project to house the new kitchen, I decided to utilise my own builder for the fitting. We did have a few hitches here and initially he found the installation quite challenging. If you do use your own builder, just be aware that the German kitchens have their own unique quirks and unless you are familiar with them, are perhaps not as straightforward as other products. We also had a few items delivered that were incorrect sizes etc. and these had to be replaced. That said, I must say that LWK did provide some very good technical assistance and liaised directly with my builder on several occasions to assist him. They also replaced the incorrect items efficiently and relatively quickly, so there were really no delays to the installation. Deborah on the project coordination team was fantastic and followed up everything very thoroughly, constantly ensuring that all was going to plan. So, certainly not a company to 'take your money and run' - their after sales care is good.
Overall, I am very happy with my new kitchen supplied by LWK. They provide a very professional service right through from design to completion and the end product is both practical and stylish. I really enjoy cooking and the kitchen is such a pleasure to work with. The design flows well and the appliances all function efficiently. Having always cooked with gas the switch to induction has worked well and now I would never consider using anything else. Like everything, it is worth putting a lot of thought into the design and ensuring that every unit is utilised to its best capacity. This is something that they are good at and will give you the time and assistance to achieve.
I'm delighted with my new (and very stylish) kitchen. Thank you LWK!
