"Delighted with our new kitchen. Work was done on schedule and to budget and looks great. Michael was really helpful in designing the kitchen, as we weren't really sure exactly what we wanted. Michael listened to our requirements - suggested a design which works really well, making great use of the space. He guided us on materials, explained options and was very patient when we kept changing our mind." - Peter Vetch (Buckden)




"I found The Skipton Kitchen Company online and was immediately drawn to them as not only were they very local to me, they had some very positive client reviews, they had already installed the style of kitchen I was looking for and they could take on a wide range of tasks, from the initial kitchen design and the ordering of all cabinetry, materials and appliances all the way through to installation, plumbing, bespoke joinery, flooring installation and liaison with their own trusted worktop and cabinet suppliers.
The Skipton Kitchen Company work from their home-based design studio (so there are no high overheads of having a large showroom, meaning their fitting fees are competitive). Despite not having a showroom they have a wide range of door, worktop, cabinet handle and floor samples for you to see in the flesh at their studio - which also gave me peace of mind before making some of the most important decisions.
We considered other local companies / kitchen fitters but quickly realized we needed someone experienced, who could guide us through the process from start to finish and with a creative "can do" attitude to problem solving. The Skipton Kitchen Company fit the bill.
Michael is an experienced kitchen fitter but also has an engineering background - meaning he was able to turn some of the challenges in our kitchen renovation into imaginative solutions. Michael is also a careful and talented joiner and takes great pride in his work - he is keen to ensure we were 100% happy with everything before he completed the job - which we were. We are very happy with the final look and feel of our kitchen - everything has been installed to a very high quality and very soon we will forget that we spent slightly more than our initial budget, because we will enjoy our dream kitchen for many years to come!"

"I was impressed with Michael on our first meeting. He has a relaxed yet professional can-do attitude. Over a couple of planning sessions at Michael's studio my dream kitchen started to take shape. The quote was so affordable that I did not even trouble to obtain alternative prices. I had complete confidence in Michael and my trust was not misplaced. Work commenced with a builder and electrician who work closely with Michael. They both did excellent work at a reasonable price.
The precision of Michael's work is plain to see and my kitchen is perfect. He translated all of my ideas into reality and added many flourishes of his own that made the space work even better than I would have imagined. I would not change a single thing. I would like to thank Michael for his brilliant work."

"We are absolutely thrilled with our new kitchen. Michael was friendly, helpful, professional and efficient. he guided us through the planning stages, giving us some excellent ideas but being totally flexible in his approach (especially with regard to the fitting date). The actual fitting of this high quality kitchen was seamless and it was very nice to have someone leave a tidy environment when they left. We would without hesitation recommend The Skipton Kitchen Company." -Stephen & Cathy (Grassington)



"Michael and his team designed a kitchen that worked around our needs and, at times, awkward space. They were relaxed and personable, but professional throughout and flexible when there were unexpected snags. The finished kitchen is of a very high standard and the fitting was done with care and attention rarely seen in this business. The space is now a pleasure to work and relax in. We would highly recommend them." - Mr & Mrs Evans (Skipton)




 "After a long search looking for our new kitchen, we came across The Skipton Kitchen Company's website. It offered everything we were looking for and after contacting Michael to arrange a survey, we never looked back. Michael's professionalism is second to none, he gave us lots of advise and also listened to what we wanted.  Michael not only designed the kitchen but also did all the installation himself, his workmanship and attention to detail is of the highest quality and our kitchen in stunning. We cannot recommend The Skipton Kitchen Company highly enough, the service you get is first class from the first visit to the last." - Paul Hillman (Clitheroe)



 "Right from the design & quotation stage through to final completion we were very impressed with Michaels' enthusiasm and creativity! He transformed what was a pretty bland and dysfunctional kitchen into two dynamic, complimentary areas...a kitchen and a dining area...which flow into each other seamlessly. The previously remote Aga was also fully integrated into the kitchen area through the use of cleverly designed units... 

Combined with new tiled and oak flooring, both with underfloor heating, and built-in high quality appliances, we have a much admired and very practical kitchen and dining area. An excellent job !!  Thanks Michael, Jolanda, and John."

- Tony & Janet (Grassington)



"A thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience...
I hear so many stories from friends and colleagues of the trauma they go through when having relatively major work done. My experience was quite the opposite. Michael at Skipton Kitchen Company provided an excellent customer centric service, friendly, approachable, and communicative. More over, the standard of work from building (walls knocking down and ceilings etc.) to the fitting and completion of the kitchen and dining room, is of the highest quality. Importantly, we came in on budget.
I strongly recommend Skipton Kitchen Company (Michael Ogden) for anyone considering having the job done properly."

"From concept to realisation, Michael's work has been outstanding. His ability to guide us through the process of choosing the best quality products and fittings for our new kitchen whilst keeping within budget and adding flourishes that make the kitchen really ours is remarkable. His ability to attend to not only the fitting, but also the adapting of electrical, lighting and plumbing services has made the whole job far less complex than dealing with individual contractors.

The quality of his work, attention to detail and his innovation, have been a source of great satisfaction. He has turned a gloomy, dysfunctional kitchen into one that's filled with light and a delight to work and be in. " - Ian & Sheila (Horton in Ribblesdale)




"In early 2015 we decided to have a new kitchen and did some research. After visiting most of the 'big brands' it became
obvious that quality was patchy, sales staff were inexperienced, on commission and knew nothing about installation, plumbing and electrics. Amazingly, several came up with a price without even visiting our home. Eventually we went local and met Michael from The Skipton Kitchen Company. He was enthusiastic, experienced, had a 'can do' attitude and a good relationship with a local plasterer and an electrician. Surprisingly, his estimate was the same and in some cases less than the big brands yet the quality of the cabinets, worktops, cupboards and installation etc was much better.
We now have a super modern, integrated kitchen which is much admired and all at a fair price. Job done!
Many Thanks." - Malcolm & Lillian (Skipton)




"Michael Ogden is The Skipton Kitchen Company, and this is one of the company's great strengths. With a degree in engineering, Michael is a highly organised and skilled kitchen designer and fitter with an extremely accurate eye for detail and an extensive knowledge of kitchen products available. He was quick to pick up on our particular budget, needs and preferences and, when a problem arose with a chosen work surface during the fitting, Michael quickly sourced us a beautiful alternative worktop at a very reasonable price. His advice on taps, sink, storage gadgets and white goods was invaluable and we have a lovely kitchen at a reasonable price. With an ability to work to deadlines and to keep you informed of the budget implications of changing decisions along the way, Michael is a pleasure to have in the house and we couldn't recommend him highly enough."

- Lawri & Christina Robinson (Grassington)




"We are absolutely delighted with our kitchen from The Skipton Kitchen Company.

Their ability to produce a kitchen design that looks beautiful but is also incredibly practical, is outstanding. MIchael listened carefully to our wishes, our needs and our budget; he used his knowledge and experience to suggest great ideas and solutions to ensure the result was a stunning, hand crafted kitchen that we are genuinely delighted with. We were impressed with the fantastic attention to detail, nothing ever too much trouble. It is clear they take great pride in their work, as they should. A very approachable and friendly company which is extremely professional and perhaps a little unique...just like my kitchen.
Many thanks." - Sam & Clare (Skipton)

 "Great workmanship, all to timescales promised, a good price quoted and all round we are very happy customers. We liked Michael's work so much we worked with him again on our new house in Cumbria where he fitted two more kitchens for us. Many thanks!" - Graham & Karen (York and Cumbria)
    
 "Thank you for your excellent service, from the personal design and innovative ideas, through to a truly professional fit performed with precision and care taken throughout the installation. The kitchen turned our house into a home, making the space really work for us." - Dave & Louise (Skipton)

 "We have lived in our present home for nearly 40 years and after 30+ years our Kitchen was looking dated. The installation of a contemporary painted Kitchen with granite worktops has made the room once again the focal point of the house. The new appliances and gadgets have really made life a lot easier and brought the fun back into cooking. The installation of a built in coffee machine gives us a bit of luxury any day of the week! We are really glad that we took the plunge to invest in a new Kitchen from
The Skipton Kitchen Company and would certainly recommend them to friends and family." - Mr & Mrs Irlam (Fence, Lancashire)

 "Dear Michael. Just a note to say how pleased we are with our new Kitchen. Robert especially likes the 'very clever' corner unit
and I'm over the moon with my new cupboard and workspace next to the AGA. All in all a huge success and much admired
over Christmas. We'll definitely spread the word." - Robert & Anne (County Brook, Foulridge)

"I bought a house in Chelsea and needed a Kitchen that was fitting for the area. Working with The Skipton Kitchen Company was a delight! I had a fabulous designer Stainless Steel Kitchen fitted at a fraction of the price within a very short time frame. It was an impeccable design and the service was wonderful and everything was installed so smoothly. I would recommend the company and service to anyone and everyone." - Aisha Maria (Chelsea, London)

 "The Skipton Kitchen Company did a super job creating a new open plan kitchen / dining room from what was a small kitchen and seperate dark dining room. We are very pleased with the speed and efficiency the work was carried out, Michael organised everything from knocking the wall through to getting the boiler moved. Thanks to The Skipton Kitchen Company this is now our favourite room in the house!" - Helen (Skipton)
   
 "In Bucks was a Kitchen so sad
an update it had never had
so along came the man (Michael)
with it all in his van
and this lady was ever so glad.................and still is 10 years on!!!" - Gill (Beaconsfield, Bucks)

 "We had our new Kitchen installed by The Skipton Kitchen Company in 2003. The installation of a maple fronted Kitchen totally transformed the kitchen into a modern bright functional space. The units and worktops were of such a good quality that they
looked as good as they did after fitting 8 years later and after preparing 1000s of meals and snacks. The appliances were
lovely and of excellent quality. The installation ran to schedule and was totally hassle free." - Mark & Sarah (Skipton)

 "Michael fitted a new Kitchen for us in 2010. We are very happy with it. Michael is friendly and efficient and I felt quite at easy with him and was happy to leave him in the house if I needed to go out. He is a perfectionist in his work and cleans up thoroughly at the end of each day. He even vacuumed the patio after sawing worktops! I would highly recommend him to anyone." - Jenny (Silsden)
