"About two years ago I badly needed a new kitchen and in my dreams imagined what it might be like. Alas I felt it most probably would never happen in real life!!
That was until a friend recommended me to try Naturewood Kitchens!!
Accordingly I did and contacted Mr. Alun Tomlin. So glad I did as within a few days he visited, looked, measured, listened, advised and encouraged. His enthusiasm, expertise, friendliness and attention to detail was infectious and in no time at all my dream became a reality.
As I am disabled I had some specific needs and unlike most firms which have a 'take it or leave it' attitude, Naturewood were able to alter and adapt things to meet my needs perfectly.!!
Plans soon arrived by email, were discussed and amended as required- nothing was any trouble. First rate attention to all details and the job was soon underway. It was a huge undertaking involving the removal of a whole wall, altering and replacing another wall with new windows and doors and a complete gutting of the present kitchen and dining room.
From the outset nothing was too much trouble for Alun and his wonderful team. From builders, plumbers,fitters, painters, plasterers etc all carried out their work efficiently with attention to detail second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was very friendly and personal.
The work was carried out very quickly and professionally with great attention to quality, detail,and accuracy. My dream was not a dream - it had become a reality - not only did I have a superb quality kitchen which suited my every need I had a new set of 'friends' to boot.
I can heartily recommend Naturewood Kitchens to anyone needing that 'Special Touch' to design and fit their new kitchen. Two years down the line my Naturewood kitchen is still my pride and joy. Visitors almost always comment on how super it is and marvel at the beauty of it and the many facilities I have.
Try them - you will not be disappointed!!!!"
"I am delighted with my new kitchen, which included building works - the transformation is remarkable. Naturewood handled my project end to end and were highly collaborative throughout, from initial design ideas through to execution across multiple trades. I found all their staff to be expert, professional and respectful, and I couldn’t have worked with nicer people."
"We are very pleased with our kitchen. Naturewood were very professional throughout and the workmanship was excellent."
Roy & Anna
"We would like to say a BIG thank you to Alun and his team for all their hard work, designing and fitting our wonderful new kitchen. Their attention to detail in all aspects were second to none. We receive many lovely compliments from our family and friends and we would not hesitate to recommend you.

The professional level of service has far exceed expectation and I have not one single reservation that would stop me recommending them. Alun has supported our project 100% along the way ensuring it came together at the most crucial time, We will recommend to others and use again in the future."
"When considering a new kitchen we were twice recommended to try Naturewood. Alun spent a lot of time to understand our needs, the planning was very detailed. Andy our fitter was meticulous and lovely to have around. His wood working skills were amazing. The kitchen was competed to time and within the price quotation. We are thrilled with our kitchen and wouldn't change a thing."
Ron & Vivien Smith
"We used Naturewood to install our first kitchen some years ago. We decided to install a new one at the beginning of 2015 and had no hesitation in utilising the service of Naturewood again. From the planning to the installation it went without a hitch. Alun and Alan were a pleasure to deal with and Andy and Tony fitted everything with flair and perfection and were a delight to have in the house. AND the price was good!
We would have no hesitation in recommending them but be sure to have plenty of tea, milk and biscuits in the house!!"
Andrew & Stella Dutton
"We are delighted with the transformation to our house achieved by Naturewood. The kitchen layout and design really work well and the few extras they suggested, such as the plinth lighting creates a 'wow' factor.
We set out wanting space and light, and an Aga. We worked with Naturewood who helped us with the design, the units and extras. They managed the whole project for us, which involved knocking down a wall and taking down ceilings, rewiring, replastering and painting, screeding and laying the new tiles as well as fitting the kitchen.
The project was completed on time and within budget. The various workmen used by Naturewood worked hard and kept mess to an absolute minimum.
Many thanks again for your hard work and input in bringing our fantastic new kitchen to fruition; we would have no hesitation in recommending Naturewood."
Mick & Sam Bell
"Would highly recommend Naturewood Kitchens; a friendly, professional service from Alun and the team.
Workmanship was excellent and whole experience from initial enquiry to completion was second to none.
This was the third time we have used Naturewood and standards remain very high with care and attention applied throughout the project."
Brenda & Tony Weiss
"I am writing to express my appreciation for the excellent service we received from yourself and the team during the design, selection and installation process of our new kitchen. Having you involved throughout the whole process was one of the real advantages of choosing Nature wood Kitchens.
You took care of all the details and complexities, ensuring all I had to do was choose the fittings.
Thank you so much for your help and advice during the design and selection stage. Your suggestions and recommendations were very helpful, and I’m very glad that I followed your advice. Also, thank you for being so patient while I took my time choosing the colour scheme, units, worktops and appliances.
Please pass on our thanks to Alan, Craig and Tony I am absolutely delighted with the finished article.
The kitchen has been totally transformed from a very dated dark environment, to a beautiful light modern kitchen. I am extremely pleased with the high quality of the kitchen supplied, and the fitting of all units, flooring, appliances and worktops is exceptional.
Although the fitting of any new kitchen is always going to be disruptive, I was particularly impressed at how you and your team managed to keep the disruption to a minimum. The fact you cleaned away any mess and tidied at the end of each day was an added bonus, and yet again, one less job for me to worry about! I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Naturewood to anyone , we absolutely love our new kitchen and the whole experience was excellent from start to finish. Thanks again.”
Laura & Mark
"This is the second kitchen that Naturewood have installed for us, a house move has prompted us to use them again after being totally satisfied with their work on our previous home.
I cannot recommend them enough. Alun listens attentively to his Clients’ ideas and with his experience and expertise begins designing with you the kitchen in this case of my dreams! This kitchen was particularly important as the house is now open plan and needed to fit in with the design of the rest of the house.
Andy the fitter was just brilliant! I can guarantee even the pipework behind all appliances are a work of art!
Thanks Naturewood for such a brilliant job, it felt like we were working with very good friends."
Alison & Clive Down
"Naturewood were fantastic and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a complete solution and project management for their new kitchen. From quality cupboards, top end appliances and bespoke made fittings, to assistance in matching up final colour-ways, Alun always took care to listen to our needs so that every inch of our new kitchen was utilised effectively and no space wasted - with a few mutually agreeable tweaks he still managed to meet our budget! During the 9 week installation process everything was handled professionally and each specialist on site treated our house like it was their own home and as if this was their own personal kitchen that was being installed. Andy was on site every day and with his excellent workmanship, attention to detail and pride in every task at hand, we were actually sad to see him leave and our lovely new kitchen finished!"

Naturewood Kitchens was recommended to us by a Builder whom we were using as part of our Home Renovation work. Upon visiting their new Offices in Chesham, we were immediately drawn into the variety of Kitchens they had on display in their Showroom. There lay-out is all very cool with a serious of rooms with different Kitchens in each of them. All very different to what you expect to see! Anyhow this is when we met Alun Thomlin who would be our primary contact with from start to finish. From my own personal perspective I found Alun very approachable, likeable, and certainly the person who helped us achieve our Dream Kitchen!
From the visit to their Offices, we arranged a Measure Visit which then lead us to the Presentation of the Kitchen. Please bear in mind at this point Alun did not have a lot to work with as part of our Kitchen renovation work was to knock through the Wall between the Kitchen and Garage to create a huge Family area. From his initial visit this knock-through had not taken place yet, so it was a case of him listening to what we wanted and using his experience in designing a kitchen that would best meet our requirements.
Upon seeing the Presentation we both immediately fell in love with the Kitchen design, and from this point it was just a case of the numbers matching in terms of what we had allocated for the Kitchen. Once this was agreed and finalised it was case of keeping communication from this point with Alun and then Tony as to when the renovation work would be completed , and for Naturewood to start work on the Kitchen Install.
From this point to finish I cannot fault the service and product supplied by Alun and Naturewood from the install by Andy the Kitchen Fitter, to the stunning quartz worktop and Neff appliances. As with all renovation work they are always challenges and problems that occur and every time this potentially impacted our Schedule, not only were Naturewood understanding with our situation but they even manage to move their jobs around to work around us to meet our timelines. Truly impressive considering how little notice on some occasions we gave them. A true credit to them all!
I am not going to recommend you all go out and buy a Kitchen from Naturewood based on my testimonial as this may not be for everyone, but I will certainly recommend that you ought to give Naturewood a visit a the very least, if you are considering looking to buy or upgrade your existing Kitchen. You have nothing to lose and maybe everything to gain!
Adrian & Emma Hau
The whole process from first approaching Naturewood to the final meeting after it had all been fitted was straightforward and stressless (yes really - even though the kitchen was fitted mid winter!). From the beginning we felt listened to and offered options to consider that felt right for us and our budget. The kitchen planning was well thought through, and provided a design that optimised the space in a way we would never have been able to create ourselves. The whole team were friendly, and the kitchen fitter was respectful and tidy. We have had absolutely no snagging issues, the quality of the kitchen is amazing and we are really enjoying the end product. I would highly recommend the company and the staff.

I was passed Alun's number at Naturewood through friends that had just had their kitchen fitted. From the very first visit I was impressed with Alun and was confident I'd found the company I wanted to design / fit our kitchen. Unlike other companies that produced very generic designs Alun spent time getting to know us as a couple and understood how the space needed to work for us. The kitchen was in a dire state and was poorly laid out. Alun came up with a design that maximised the space and was within our budget. The kitchen has transformed our house, especially with the arrival of our little girl! Everyone that visits comments on the kitchen and is very complimentary. Thank you to Al and all of the team at Naturewood, I cannot recommend highly enough!
Sam, Matt & Alma Hills
We needed a new kitchen and had a few ideas. We had no concept of how to proceed. Naturewood listened, measured, photographed and came up with a design that improved the traffic flow and work spaces, made our regular implements more easily available, and looks really, really good. The recommended appliances work well and are easy to clean. They worked out how to design the variations we required. They encouraged us to choose colours carefully and smiled when we refused to use the ‘popular’ colours or one like someone else just chose. The time the build took was carefully scheduled and allowed the work to be done without rushing. Unexpected hitches were fixed. The people involved couldn’t have been nicer or cared more that we were pleased with the results. Thank you Alun, Tony, Andy, Jason and everyone else involved.
Mermie & Colin Karger
This is to say what excellent service we received from Naturewood who fitted our dream kitchen. Alun’s design together with Andy’s excellent workmanship have produced superb results meeting all my needs. They had already completed a kitchen for my sister which was beautifully crafted and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to everybody!
Josy & Brian Lofthouse
Our initial meeting with Naturewood in our home was filled with questions so Alun could build a clear picture of how we use the space and what our future plans were for our kitchen. I had ideas on what I wanted, but in talking to Alun and his team, my ideas and needs were understood and they used their experience to help bring my ideas to life on their design software. The team is very friendly and professional and from the first point of contact we always felt looked after. Naturewood staff always made us feel that our needs were the most important thing and that they were working for us. Their years of experience and superb product knowledge have ensured that our new kitchen is not only stunning aesthetically, but also very functional and easy to use and maintain. The functionality of the kitchen was extremely important to us as i suffer with health issues the main reason for deciding to renovate our kitchen was to help me cook for my large family with ease. They were meticulous in their planning and execution, they take the utmost pride in their work and they gave us a timeline and budget which they stuck to. I cannot recommend Naturewood highly enough. They have helped us to build a home we are truly proud of.

Having used Naturewood many years ago to fit our kitchen, we didn't hesitate in choosing them again, to fit out our newly extended kitchen. Once again, we were not disappointed, we approached them and said what we were planning and the lovely Alun went away and came up with designs, which were virtually what we wanted....a few tweaks here and there and they were ideal and we went ahead with the project. Alun was a delight to work with friendly and listened intently to all our needs, nothing was ever too much trouble for him and we communicated regularly, as it was quite a large project. They leased with our builders and gave us a detailed fitting schedule, which worked like a dream. They helped us with the flooring and arranged a painter for us and all their employees, were really friendly and helpful. Andy the kitchen fitter was amazing, he takes a real pride in his work and is very skilled especially working with wood... also, making us a bespoke window sill out of offcuts from the worktop, which really was a work of art. The finished kitchen result was exactly as we envisaged and the work was completed to a really high standard, we are so happy with the kitchen, we spend most of our time in it now. Anyone who is looking for a new kitchen, should head to Naturewood and have a look and meet Alun, we can't rate them highly enough!
