    Leekes Kitchens 17th Jul 17 at 9:51 AM
    Hello

    My and wife and I went into Leekes in Coventry at the weekend and we really liked the Sheraton range and the option of 0% finance. The problem is there are not that many reviews for them that I can find. Those that I can find either very positive or very negative.

    Has anybody on this forum used Leekes for their new kitchen? What was the whole process like? How were the fitters and did they do a good job?

    Any comments would very much be appreciated.

    Regards
    Paul

    I went to Leekes to quote for my new kitchen but found them to be hideously expensive for what are, essentially, bog-standard kitchen units.

    The carcasses are of cheap construction and the doors are laminated, which I was trying to avoid.

    Their installation costs are astronomical too.

    I went with Ikea in the end and could not be happier with my kitchen. Everyone who sees it thinks I spent £20k on it and I'm happy in the knowledge it cost me under £10k, fitted, and has a 25 year guarantee

    I considered a Sheraton kitchen for my home around 2012. I thought the product was acceptable. The fitter I was using thought likewise. I have no recent knowledge to update this.

    However there are two areas to be aware of. First, kitchens vary little from one brand to another - so it is a matter of drawing up what your requirements are. The Sheraton was being sold as a superior product, which it was, but only by a small margin. Second, a Sheraton could be purchased from many sources, so why use Leekes? I am not in your part of the world, but the website suggests large overheads and high prices.

    Put my thoughts another way. Why do you believe Leekes is a suitable source, and why are you not looking elsewhere?

    We have, we have been to Wickes, Wren, Magnet, In-toto and a local independent. We had quotes from Wickes, In-toto and the independent.

    Wickes have been by far the cheapest to quote however we just couldn't decide on the colour we wanted. We wanted an off-white but the closest they have is a cream colour which we just didn't like. We did think about a pale grey (Milton) but thought it might date in a few years. Wickes problem for us was the lack of colour palette in their ranges. This explains why they are able to keep prices so low. which is great if you like one of their colours but not if you don't.

    The in-toto quote was horrendously expensive even with a discount. Nice product with a colour we liked but too much money.

    The independent again had everything we wanted but the payment structure meant we would struggle to pay everything in time.

    Leekes have everything we want appliances included) and a 25% discount on Sheraton, plus 10% off Neff and 0% finance.

    I was just intrigued as to why their were not many reviews on Leekes.
