Testimonials

When we started our journey, we thought we knew what we wanted, we had our ideas and images for what we thought would look nice. Abbeywood completely opened our minds to newer more exciting designs that exceeded our wildest dreams. The out come was of the highest finish, expertly crafted and designed.

The vision of Abbey woods dared us to dream of something more and we were not disappointed. It may have been just a built in wardrobe, transforming our obsolete en-suite into a lavish and stylish piece of art work that helped transform our bedroom into something more.
The finishes were excellent and flawless. The manner and professionalism of the on site workers was excellent and I would recommend them whole heartily.

“We have just built a new house and Abbeywood furniture designed and handcrafted our kitchen. Through the many contractors I had to deal with and the amount of decisions to be made I found Donal and Maire to be such a pleasure to deal with. They were always at the end of the phone when i needed them, they called up when they said they would, and the kitchen was delivered on time without any problems. I wish I could say the rest of the build was as smooth!
I wanted something different and Donal really came up trumps creating my dream kitchen. Actually it is beyond my dreams as I am now working in the kitchen making dinner I can really appreciate the detailed and thought out design Donal created. We can unload the dishwasher without moving from one spot. I can cook on the hob, prep and wash the vegetables, get drinks and snacks ready without ever taking my eye off the kids as they play. The kids and I can all bake together without getting in each others way. The design of our kitchen certainly has enhanced our life and I have Donal to thank for that. But is not only the practicality but also the look of the kitchen. Donal designed an amazing modern dining table that is so beautiful. The wooden shelves and the wooden counter are a real wow factor. And all within our budget. I couldn’t recommend Abbeywood enough.”

Recently, I undertook the project of completing a house extension. As part this project, the kitchen was the most important aspect to me. I had my dream kitchen in mind and had contacted and visited numerous kitchen designers. I had almost lost faith in finding my dream kitchen, when I was highly recommended to meet and visit Abbeywood Kitchens. As soon as I met with Donal & Maire, I knew I met the kitchen designers I had craved to work with.
From the initial meeting, Donal insisted in calling to the house for site meeting, with the engineer and architect, before he would consider any design. While I had previously met with many other kitchen designers, Abbeywood Kitchens were the only kitchen designers that took this approach. The other kitchen designers just took the architect drawings, and every single other kitchen designers, designed exactly the same designs.
Abbeywood totally took control of the project, working closely with, architect, engineer and builder. Every single detail was considered with the end result being this beautiful inframe kitchen.
I would highly recommend Abbeywood Kitchen designers, for their professional, attention to detail, and personal touch to every kitchen.
Thank you so much for my dream kitchen.

I recently recommended Abbey wood to a both a neighbour and a very good friend. Why? Abbey wood are professionals and master craftsmen who delivered on time and budget, and with a smile. After an initial meeting at their showroom Donal paid his first visit. He cast a fresh eye over our kitchen which dates from the 1970’s. His initial suggestions were to remove a suspended ceiling, repaint the room, sand the floor and basically let the light in. It hit the budget but what a difference this made. Donal’s vision and eye for detail is amazing. He then looked at the fitted kitchen, admired the craftsmanship and told us we would be crazy to take it out. He told us how we could rework the existing units, replace the worktop and add new appliances. This remodelling actually created extra space by simply moving a few units and repositioning the appliances. It also mean that traffic moves in the right direction and freely while there is a logic to where all items are stored. We need extra storage so Donal suggested one of his double larder unit which solved this problem.
The removal of the ceiling, electrics and plumbing, and removal of units had to be co-ordinated in order to complete the jobs as quickly as possible as we were not in a position to move out. Abbey wood arrived on site at 7am and late evening to facilitate the other contractor and were available to discuss all aspect of the job. All visits were preceded by contact calls and all agreed times adhered to. The workmanship and materials on the new units matches the old and all were fitted to the highest standards. As a bonus the redundant units and material were reworked and recycled are now fitted in our utility. Again thanks to Donal’s vision. I have no hesitation in recommending Abbey wood. They transformed our old dark poorly designed kitchen into a bright highly functional one on budget and on time.

We love our Abbeywood kitchen and as cooks and foodies enjoy it to the full. Both Donal and Maire gave us time and advice with the result it is both beautiful and practical. It replaced our old kitchen taking up less space, and at the same time providing more storage. Magic! Donal has a very clever way with design and several years on we are benefitting from his expertise. It is a solid wood kitchen using different woods, and the timber has deepened with time making it a warm and colourful space in which to work.

Donal is a gifted visionary who has been able to turn a dark, drab and dated kitchen and dining room into a light and spacious living area that combines style with practicality. He focused how how we like to live and this was the centre of his designs. Donal suggestion of completely rearranging the layout has enabled us to have a larger fridge freezer then planned, a large island for daily use and lots of storage which is essential to a busy household. We knocked a wall between the kitchen and dining room which created great space. Our previous dark rooms is now flooded with light. Marie provided great time and patience in helping pick wall colours and encouraged us to have an original classic kitchen colour which fitted with our home. As a family with young children this kitchen is now the centre of our home. It’s looks fabulous but functions superbly.

Abbeywood provided a bedroom slide robe, bedside unit with bookshelves and shoe shelves behind doors in the unit. I’m extremely satisfied with the quality and all round service from Abbeywood. Will definitely use them again in future for any similar projects I will have.

Right from the first meeting, dealing with Abbeywood was a pleasure. Donal has an excellent way of predicting away into the future how your kitchen will need to function. The quality of their units is exceptional and attention to detail is to the fore. Yes there are cheaper options out there but with Abbeywood you get fantastic service and excellent quality that will last a lifetime.
