Lili Prais Testimonial

by Dev Direct on October 15, 2013

I fear my words alone may fail to convey adequately my level of enthusiasm for Colin and all the team at Development Direct. If I could do a dance to show you, then I would!
What can I say – they were whole-heartedly beyond brilliant. From the start, Colin and his team undertook my project with a level of detail and skill that was startling. The space they had to work with in my kitchen required a considered approach and a keen design eye. I got so much more than I wished for.
The design Colin came up with is absolutely perfect and just so special. It is cutting edge, clever and oh so individual. I am more than pleased. I am delighted. Our friends originally recommended that we speak to Colin but as they were based in Edinburgh and not local to us, I was a little hesitant but within 15minutes of meeting Colin, I knew I had found the right company.
I just knew he would come up with an amazing design and he certainly didn’t disappoint. Michael my partner who is usually so difficult to please loved the design so much, he didn’t want to change a thing! We trusted everything they suggested from there on and this trust really paid off as the design detailing was magnificent.
From the drawing table through to completion – every stage was carried out with the utmost professionalism and artistry.

I would like to personally congratulate Colin and his team on their latest string of awards which are very justly deserved.
We have been using Development Direct for almost 10 years now to supply and fit kitchens for the majority of our development projects.
During this time we have always had our expectations exceeded with genuine cutting-edge design ideas, backed up with a knowledgeable and experienced team that always deliver an exceptional end product and service that we demand for all our property investment clients.
When we need to take our investment properties to another level, we always know we can rely on Development Direct to design kitchens and bathrooms that are that bit more special yet at a competitive price to increase the value of the properties for our clients.
Well done guys, very impressed with your achievements. It’s genuinely reassuring to know that not only are we working with the best local company but also the best nationally

Mike Stoane Testimonial

Dear Mr Kitchen,
It was a great experience working with you all and the result is brilliant, (if a little girlie for me) Jo loves it and that’s what matters. She no longer moans about cooking my tea day after day. It’s a really practical kitchen, especially the quartz work surface with under slung sink, which shrugs off water, hot pans and Friday night curry stains. It’s a joy to clean. It’s well laid out of course, with everything being close at hand, despite it being a big room. Visually, you’ve struck a balance between simple functionality and swishy bling. Even the touch latches have stopped annoying me!
You have done a superb job of assessing what we as a fairly confusing family unit want and then steering us in the right direction. Telling us we don’t want a washing machine in the kitchen and leaving it at that would have earned you the tag of ‘precious designer’ but suggesting the genius solution that became the laundry pod is way beyond the call of duty as kitchen designer. It works magnificently and wish I came up with the idea myself!
With her new kitchen in place, a new living room where the dining room used to be and two new bathrooms, my hi-fi den living room is no longer a sore point. And compared to the overall cost of this renovation, I can spend as much as I like on a new stylus without it even registering. Some would say it has been a very convoluted and expensive way of improving my hi-fi, but that’s a selfish way of looking at it. I get my tea on the table every night too. Strangely my cooking, which used to be quite good on a Saturday night, has dived in quality, and the only place I can cook well is in my airstream; as long as nobody else is there and it’s not raining.
Many thanks to you, to Jenny, Sean, Andrew and co for your first rate attention, customer service and for a great result at a no nonsense price. You are by a long way the best kitchen company I have ever experienced and as you know as a designer it was always going to be difficult for me to find a designer that I knew was going to do the right thing. I dreaded doing the whole thing but actually really enjoyed it in the end!
Thanks again.
You’re quite a special bunch.
Mike Stoane
