We are a family owned business in Ripon, North Yorkshire. We have been trading as Kitchen Warehouse UK LTD for around 14 years now. We are a kitchen manufacturer and have been supplying high-quality kitchens to the trade since we started. Our main business is supplying luxury kitchens for high street showrooms up and down the country. No matter where you are based you can take advantage of our range of kitchen styles.
When Britain was in a recession, we decided to diversify our business and looked at why we were only selling our product to high street kitchen showrooms, high-end designer kitchen studios, property developers, builders and kitchen fitters. We thought to ourselves what difference does it make to us as a business if we sell to the general public, rather than just companies who are putting a large mark up on the products we supply?
After much deliberation we decided if somebody has kitchen design ideas in mind and they know what kitchen units, kitchen doors, side panels, plinths, cornice, etc. they require for their home, then why should they not be able to deal direct with the manufacturer of the product. This would save themselves the kitchen showrooms mark up and allow them to deal with the experts directly - us!
This was a real turning point for us as a company, we built a simple-to-use website that was clearly priced with no hidden extras. That made it easy for anyone to price up all the kitchen products they needed in style of kitchen they wanted. Whether you need a modern kitchen or a classic kitchen we have something for you.
We then decided that if a customer was not able to visit our showroom to see the quality of the kitchens we offered, the easiest way for a customer to have a look at the quality of our kitchen doors was to offer a cheap sample service. If you purchase a sample and then go on to buy a kitchen or replacement kitchen doors you will be refunded cost of the sample.
A lot of the kitchen showrooms and designer kitchen studios you will find on your local high street and in your town or city centre are only a design service. They will all have beautiful kitchen displays and well-groomed sales staff and designers that will offer you a free design service. They will come to your home and design you a stunning looking kitchen that is pleasing to the eye as well as practical, hopefully taking on your ideas and desires with throwing in their experience and inspiration.
After they have measured your kitchen and designed you a beautiful plan, they will give you a price for the supplying and installation of your fantastic new kitchen, you then agree on a price for the new kitchen design to be supplied and all the work involved in the installation of your new kitchen design to be carried out. Upon agreeing to the work been carried out and paying your deposit payment, the kitchen showroom will then get in touch with a kitchen manufacturing company such as ours to make the required kitchen cabinets for your new kitchen design. As most kitchen showrooms are just a design service and don’t have the facilities or knowledge to manufacture the kitchen cabinets themselves, this makes them the middleman as most companies like ours will not deal directly with the public.
We have no doubt that you will be able to buy cheap kitchens from some places cheaper than you can from us as we are not in the market of selling low-quality budget kitchens, but one thing is for sure you won’t buy the same quality of kitchen we sell for the same price or cheaper anywhere else. That is a fact.
We believe in selling high-quality, contemporary kitchens and traditional kitchens at an affordable price. We only use the highest of quality components. All of our units are made from egger board which is one of the leading board manufacturers in the world. All of our drawers and doors use soft closing hinges made by one of the leading manufactures in the world, a German company called Hettich. You will find these hinges and drawers in most top end German manufactured kitchens; they are a high-quality product that are designed to stand the test of time.
The soft closing drawers have a 25kg weight capacity per drawer. The hinges have a built-in soft-closing piston inside the hinge that is designed to slow the door down for the final 30 degrees as well as self-close the doors for the final 30 degrees. This prevent the doors and drawers slamming. It also gives you peace of mind that your fingers will not get trapped, so they are perfect for households with small children.
Visit Our Showroom
We would always recommend visiting our kitchen showroom to see the quality of the units we offer and the finish and colour of our kitchen cabinet doors. This is particularly true if you are unsure what design you would like. You can view our painted kitchens, shakers kitchens, solid wood kitchens and more! Our staff can also help you best decide between a gloss or matt kitchen.
We would also always recommend ringing ahead to let us know you are coming to see us although this is not essential. We always aim to have one of our extremely knowledgeable showroom staff available to help customers with their requirements and so if we are expecting you, we will ensure they available at the time of arrival. Contact us on 01765 640 000 or via our email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most of our showroom staff our kitchen fitters by trade, which means they will be able to look at your plan from a fitting point of view and advise you if it works for the space. More importantly they will be able to see any errors in the proposed kitchen plan.
We are more than happy to share our knowledge and expertise with you and advise you of the advantages to the different ranges of kitchens we offer. If you have had a design done for your new kitchen please bring it with you, we would also recommend bringing with you a sketch of the room dimensions.
We don’t believe in having pushy salespeople. It is not something we have ever done or will ever do. We believe in the fact that our kitchens sell themselves. We offer good quality kitchen cabinets and high-quality kitchen doors at reasonable prices. We class our showroom staff as product advisors rather than salespeople, they are there to explain the differences between the different products we offer, offer advice if you need any, and process your order if you like what you see.
Our showroom is open Monday to Friday 9:30 till 5:30 and Saturdays 10:00 till 3:30. On Saturdays we operate a first come first served policy due to the high number of visitors we get come to the showroom. We are normally busy at around dinner time.
If you require us to go through your plans and give you some guidance and help with your design, we would always recommend coming Monday to Friday as Saturdays can be extremely busy. But don’t be put off if you can only come on a Saturday, we will offer you the best service any day of the week!
