"After showing a close friend our new extension and kitchen design that my husband and I had been working on for 9 months, she simply said, 'I'll send you to Diane Berry, I think she can do better!' As soon as we stepped into the showroom, the process began. We were welcomed, encouraged to browse, ask questions, and explain all the requirements of our new dream kitchen extension. The whole Diane Berry team were extremely professional and as my friend suspected within a week Diane had come up with a perfect design for the whole extension, that we couldn't believe we hadn't thought of. Once our budget had been decided, the design was made achievable, work began and the whole experience was painless, even enjoyable. Communication with ourselves, our builders, other tradesmen was excellent, friendly and always helpful. The fitters worked to an extremely high standard, nothing was too much trouble for them and they were precise and efficient. Our kitchen installation was finished on time and was better than we had imagined, we were so delighted.....just in time for the Christmas festivities.
That was in 2012, and our kitchen still continues to be the hub of the house and delivers the same pleasure and excitement as the day it was completed. We absolutely love it, wouldn't change a thing and would highly recommend Diane Berry kitchens to anyone. A very impressive, personal service that continues long after the work is finished. Thank you to all the team for a wonderful job."

Best wishes,
Gill and Graham

Dear Diane
Thank you for your letter and email. I am very sorry that it has taken so long to reply. Since the kitchen has been finished we have been busy decorating the rest of the house and taking a few short holidays.
It was absolutely fantastic to receive a copy of “Lancashire Life” last week and to see our kitchen featured. This was the icing on the cake for our friends who said our kitchen was like something you would see in a magazine. Now it really is!
We would thoroughly recommend Diane Berry Kitchens to anyone who is about to embark on a new kitchen project. Before coming to Diane Berry, we had been to a number of kitchen companies but they all seem to be average, run of the mill kitchens. None of them seemed to have a wow factor that would significantly upgrade a cooking area into a central social hub of the house.
From the initial design work to the finished kitchen the whole Diane Berry team was a professional joy to work with. Nothing that we asked for was too much trouble. Some of our tradesmen said that the working drawings that Diane provided were the clearest and best that they had ever worked from. This enabled them to complete their work with absolutely no problems. Ensuring a smooth and hassle free environment for us while they progressed to the finished kitchen.
As a practical working kitchen, Diane’s design is a harmonious bliss to work in. From fridge to hob, cupboard to oven, sink to dishwasher, everything is just in the right place to make the whole experience of preparing a family meal an experience to savour. Incorporating a utility room into the available space was sheer genius on Diane’s part as it eliminates the washday untidiness from the cooking/social area that our kitchen has become. No need to scurry off to other rooms if friends arrive unexpectedly.
All in all we would thoroughly recommend Diane Berry Kitchens to anyone on the lookout for a kitchen that is beyond the average. A kitchen that would add more than value for money to any house.
Diane I would be grateful if you put this on your website and use “The Corrigan Family from Stockport” as in Lancashire Life.

Yours sincerely

The Corrigans

When we decided to get our kitchen redesigned, we were recommend two different companies. Upon having an initial meeting with Diane, I knew Diane Berry Kitchens would be the one we’d go with; I was right!  From the very first meeting I had with Diane, I was so impressed. It is incredibly rare you happen upon somebody who knows their stuff like this lady does and I really enjoyed spending time with her, working to get the space just right for us. Diane really took the time to get to know us and how we lived, what we wanted from the kitchen both now and in the future, to make sure it stood the test of time. The designs Diane came back with blew us away, she’d reworked the space in a much better way than we imagined possible. Diane’s enthusiasm, knowledge, dedication and passion is clearly the driving force in, what has to be, one of the most professional companies I have had the pleasure to work with. The kitchen fitter was incredible too. I never thought I’d be sad to see a work man leave, but I was. He was a real pleasure to have in the house; his work was meticulous and he left the space immaculate every day. All the staff at Diane Berry Kitchens have been a pleasure to deal with and so efficient. Needless to say, I was thrilled with the end result and have recommended Diane to many of my friends and family. 

A big thank you to all at Diane Berry Kitchens, we couldn’t be happier. 

Best wishes

Dear Diane, Team, Plasterers & Electricians

When we decided to have a new kitchen, we still wanted a free standing gas cooker and no gadgets in cupboards. ………… most of the Kitchen Showrooms we looked around, the assistants looked amazed and tried to change our minds.

Diane listens to what you want, and goes out of her way to design a kitchen to suit you.

There was just one problem we had with the kitchen itself …….. but we give Diane and her team 10/10 for their speed and efficiency for sorting our problem out, thanks to Michael who was working nearby, it was soon sorted.

We couldn’t ask for anything more …… Thank you

In the 46 years we have lived in our house, we felt ..……. Diane you are so passionate about your work, and it shows in the people who work for you, as mentioned below.

They have been the most excellent, tidy, courteous workmen, we have had in our house, they all cared, and took a pride in their work, to get the end result which we have now …..… which is Absolutely Fabulous.

We just want to thank you all …….

Diane, Stephen, Michael, Martin, John, Hazel, David, Vickie & Douglas.

Plasterers  …… Sandy, Rob, Wesley ….  & Electricians.

for being involved in making our little kitchen a pleasure to work in.

Thank you, again.

At our initial meeting with Diane Berry, we made it clear that for us, whatever else it might be, the kitchen was a practical work space. Yes of course, we wanted a kitchen that looked great as well as being a place we could both eat and relax. But these things must, we emphasised, not come at the expense of what we saw as the kitchen’s primary functions: somewhere food was prepared and cooked. Additionally, as we didn’t have space for a separate utility room, the kitchen also had to be the place we could do our laundry.
Prior to approaching Diane Berry Kitchens, we had met with a number of other kitchen companies in the Manchester area. However, none of them seemed to properly understand our brief. In one particular case we were urged to forget kitchen functionality and go simply for what was described as the ‘wow’ factor.
By contrast, Diane understood our requirements from the start; and after a few meetings with her, the design of the kitchen began to take shape. The outcome is a kitchen that is both practical and beautiful. It is a room we enjoy spending time in.
We can honestly say that there is nothing in the kitchen we don’t like, or that doesn’t work for us in the way we’d hoped. Of the things we like, however, the following especially stand out.
The ‘utility cupboard’ is certainly pretty special. What from the outside looks like a double-door kitchen cupboard, once opened reveals a space into which one can walk, with a washing machine and a tumble dryer on one side, and on the other, a microwave oven and shelving for various household products. It is a very neat and clever piece of design.
The island, which mimics the shape of the kitchen, has an almost two metre run of unbroken work-top on one side, providing a very easy to use work area; while on the other side of the island is an oak breakfast bar that gives the kitchen a really warm feel.
One of the other things we really love about the kitchen is that it is so easy to keep tidy and clean. There is a place for everything, but the kitchen doesn’t look at all crammed with cabinets and has a really spacious feel; while the glass doors on the cabinets, the glass splash-back, as well as the induction hob  not only look amazing, they make cleaning very easy.

Everyone who sees our kitchen is impressed and it continues to impress us. We are more than happy with it. Indeed, the kitchen has exceeded all our expectations.

Many thanks
Mike and Carol

We moved into our self build home at the end of June 2015.  Just after we bought the plot of land in early 2014 we met with our future neighbours & we were bowled over by their 'wow' kitchen, & that is how we were introduced to Diane.  When we met Diane we were still designing the house & our brief to Diane was a ground floor centred around a 'wow' kitchen.  She produced sketches & met with us & our architect to design the layout.  Diane did not stop at the ground floor but also helped with the layout on the remainder of the house.

Diane helped us with design ideas, material choices, material & furniture suppliers for the whole house.  This took considerable time & effort.

Diane not only gave us an amazing kitchen, which everyone comments on, but also played a major role in helping us to design & build our dream home.

Diane & her team are experts in design, not limited to kitchens.
