The Word on the Street

We recently worked with Craig and the team at Burley Kitchens who installed a new kitchen for us and we would thoroughly recommend them to any potential clients.

From the outset, Craig and his team were really great to work with and we found him to be very knowledgeable with an excellent approachable manner.  Craig listened to our brief and also suggested ideas as well and together we designed a great kitchen.  What impressed me was Craig’s sound knowledge of his trade and as an Advanced Trade Qualified Builder, I did have some technical questions which were all answered by Craig.  Craig’s quote was competitive and throughout the whole process, the entire team at Burley Kitchens has been extremely professional and pleasant to deal with.  Craig worked to the time frames and nothing was a problem for him and his team.

Our sincere thanks to Craig and the team for an amazing result which we are very happy with.

I was first recommended to Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry in 2009 to design the kitchen in a house we were building for ourselves. From concept through to installation the process was seamless and hassle-free. What's more, the colour and  interior design consultant I use for all my building projects was able to coordinate with Craig and the team to get the job done.

After Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry put in our own kitchen we decided to engage with them further on some of the new builds we were doing commercially, and we haven't looked back. In fact, I'd go so far to say they're now permanently front-of-mind when we need kitchens designed, built and installed in the homes we build. They're most definitely our joiners of choice.

And it's not only domestic builds we've worked with Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry on. A more recent project involved a local dental surgery where the challenge was to put together complex cabinetry for the dentists with multiple drawers and cupboards sized specifically for the equipment and supplies they use. Three large units were designed and built in an efficient and timely manner and on budget, which is always pleasing for our customers.

I guess the key point-of-difference for us is that we know every time we approach them we know what we're going to get. They're a small and efficient team where everyone knows the details of any given project. And it's great having Craig being hands-on as we know he'll be personally responsible and on the job from concept to completion.

Very many thanks for our beautiful kitchen. It's working extremely well and the colour choice is amazing. We love the window box and laundry, they are great. We are very pleased with our experience of working with you to realize our dream.

We can thoroughly recommended Craig and the team at Burley Kitchens. We were first-time renovators with big ideas but no experience!  They were  incredibility patient with us, taking time to understand what we were hoping to achieve and how we use our kitchen. As someone who has far too many kitchen gadgets Craig's storage suggestions were very helpful. They were also able to work around any 'pet peeves' we had - like avoiding useless high cupboards or wasted corners.

Craig and Patrick worked tirelessly to find exactly the products and finish to meet our brief - even when that meant hunting high and low for just the right solution. We were especially impressed with the effort they went to source our kitchen island. I'm sure at first our plan for a curved stone monolith must have sounded mad - but the end result is beautiful, and exactly what we had hoped for. They pay great attention to detail and take (well-justified) pride in their work - as a result we now have a kitchen that is the centre-point of our home and a joy to use - thank you Burley Kitchens!

If you are thinking of getting your kitchen redone then look no further. If you want excellent service, quality, responsiveness, attention to detail and value for money, then Burley kitchens are the place to go.

We went through the process of obtaining alternative quotes, but the decision was easy, as Craig's customer service left the opposition for dead. Craig listened to our ideas, built an understanding of what we wanted and needed before producing a draft plan. He spent a lot of time with us going through all the finer details, refining the initial plans to make sure we got exactly what we wanted and something that met his own high standards. He is a perfectionist, and this is true of the whole team.

Watching the installation crew was a pleasure. Their attention to detail and the quality of their workmanship is outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. The work was completed totally on time and to budget, and we are delighted with the result.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Craig and his team.

We have had a very pleasant experience dealing with Burley Kitchens and Cabinetry Ltd who provided all fixed joinery in our new townhouse.

Right from the beginning through the gestation of ideas to delivery the relationship with Craig has been seamless, positive and respectful.

Craig listened to our requirements, offered options and solutions to various interfaces and treated multiple changes imposed by us with a can do attitude.

The cabinetry is robustly constructed to a high standard and finish. It was provided to the building in its completed form on the day Burley's were given access by the builder. The installation team work smoothly around other trades and completed the cabinetry fitting in an efficient manner.

All told, our experience with Craig's team has been enjoyable and we can strongly recommend Burley Kitchens and Cabinetry Ltd.

In 2010 we approached Craig at Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry to design and build the kitchen in our new home. Throughout we always knew where the design and build was right through to the installation. We've since used Craig and the team for several other projects.

We had Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry work on two wardrobes for us. One was a redesign of an existing walk-in wardrobe while another was the conversion of a small bedroom office into a wardrobe with drawers and cupboards. They also designed a sideboard for our entranceway. Craig was able to model the styling for the sideboard on the design of an existing drinks cabinet we had so this new piece of furniture fitted in with the rest of our home's interior styling.

An inbuilt entertainment unit was also created, along with additional open shelving in our home office and laundry. All the work Craig and the team have carried out for us has been to the highest standard and we readily refer them to our friends and colleagues. Right from the beginning the general feeling was nothing was going to be any trouble, and that's exactly how it was.

Inez & I would like to convey to you and your staff our sincere thanks for the magnificent new kitchen you have designed, built and installed into our home over the past few weeks.

Throughout the process we have appreciated your professionalism, from listening to our thoughts on what we thought we wanted to coming up with a concept design, to guiding us through the decision making process and finally producing for us the dream kitchen.

Craig you and your staff are to be complimented on your attention to detail, your willingness to listen to us and make minor changes when suggested. Nothing was ever too much to ask and for us dealing with you was a great pleasure.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any potential customers and would be pleased to show our kitchen off to anyone wanting to view the quality of the workmanship produced by you & your team. Please feel free to refer any potential customer to us for comment.

Thank you

Burley Kitchen’s designed a well thought-out base kitchen plan to fit our budget and allocated footprint.  Craig listened to our list of “must haves” and “would likes” and was able to integrate these into the perfect end result.  He guided us through the process seamlessly, communicating with us on a friendly but professional level and giving good sound advice when we needed it.

The kitchen installation and precision fit were flawless and millimeter perfect the first time; which placed this company well above others we have previously dealt with.  The finish is faultless, the layout and functionality of the work space is superb. The company and employee’s workmanship is outstanding.

We love the result and do not have any hesitation in recommending Burley’s to anyone who asks.

We first heard about Craig and the team at Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry after some associates told us about the great kitchens they'd been designing and building. So we decided to use them for the kitchen build in our new home in Havelock North, which went off without a hitch.

Since 2002 we've engaged with the Burley team many times for kitchens' in both new spec homes and custom client builds. We've also had them carry out joinery and cabinetry work for laundries, open shelving and entertainment units. 

They've never missed a beat so it goes without saying we have every intention of continuing to use them going forward.

Probably the best thing about working with Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry is that we're able to send our clients directly to them to have their kitchen designed and built. What's more, we can be 100% confident that when Craig and the team turn up to do the install, their joinery will be spot-on, and fit straight into the build without any problems.

I first started dealing with Craig at Garry Nugent Joinery in the late 90s. Since then we've worked together on well over a dozen kitchens for the new high-end homes I've built. If there's one thing I would say about Craig and the team at Burley Kitchens and Cabinetry, it's that when it comes to anything that needs to be made of wood for the interior of a house, there's pretty much nothing they can't do.

Due to the nature of the homes I build, I usually work with only a handful of clients in any given year. And the benefit of having worked with Craig for so long means I'm now more than comfortable with having my clients deal direct with him when it comes to working through the finer details of a kitchen design and build. Whether the kitchen for a new home I'm building is cookie-cutter off plans or bespoke, I know Craig and his team will get the job right, on time and on budget.

And it's not just kitchens, Craig and the team have built for me. I've had them design and build inbuilt and open shelving for books, wine, entertainment systems and so on. As I've said, I don't think there's anything made of wood for the interior of any kind of house that they couldn't build. In fact, I wouldn't even hesitate to ask Craig and the team to design and build me a rimu spiral staircase for a new build in the future!

The successful outcome of any project is to ensure you have the best people & craftsman’s on the team. As we previously had a kitchen built by Nugent Joinery it was a no brainer to engage Craig and his team at Burley Kitchens & Cabinetry. From concept to design and to the finish product Craig and his team delivered an outstanding kitchen. Their flexibility, attention to detail and customer service is their point of difference. We asked for the wow factor for our kitchen and that is exactly what we got. Huge thanks to Craig, Pat and the rest of the team.
