Carol Ellinas

“Funktional kitchens were terrific from start to finish, I’m really delighted with my new kitchen. Best of all was their after sales service. They really went the extra mile to make sure I was completely satisfied.”

Gail Goss and Luke Warren

“We knew we wanted a streamlined look with lots of storage – with three children, we can’t always legislate for the state of their bedrooms, but we can make order in the living space.”

Helen Goumal

“Vicky & Emma at Functional Kitchens were able to create the perfect kitchen we wanted, that other retailers seemed unable to do. Vicky @ Functional was able to take all the ideas we had and create the space that gave us the ‘wow’ factor we really wanted. The service of Functional Kitchens has been outstanding throughout our entire project. Our initial consultation was relaxed, we had time to browse the extensive ranges on offer and Vicky and Emma were on hand to answer questions, give lots of options and ideas we hadn’t thought of. Vicky and her team visited our build several times to ensure measurements were correct and to make sure we had the best use of space. We felt like we were part of the design process. I even had the opportunity to go and pick the actual piece of granite we wanted for our island unit. Everything happened on schedule. The Functional fitters were great and able to adapt units to fit exactly into the space. They were very friendly and professional and were able to work around other contractors we had on site. The after-sales service has been great too. We think our kitchen is amazing and we are so proud of it! Everything we wanted – Functional found a way to make it possible.”

“You and your staff were always friendly, informed, patient and attentive. Visiting your office the first time will remain a high point for me, as at the end of a long series of interviewing kitchen designers across London, including Poggenpohl and Baulthaup (with their unhelpful technical support) we finally entered your office in Islington and found you interested, equipped with IT graphics and diligently applied to working out over two solid hours the best kitchen we could dream of having. I remember walking out of your office incredulously relieved and amazed. We had no problem putting our money down for the kitchen you had helped us design.”

Jane Owen

“Thanks to Emma at Funktional Kitchens and Simon at www.sharedarchitecture.com for their collective brilliance. We are so happy with our new kitchen!”

Jenny Collins

“Emma had so much patience while we worked through different layouts and colour schemes to get our dream kitchen. She balanced a keen sense of design with a practical focus on functionality. A process which I had been dreading was actually enjoyable and I ended up consulting her about other design elements of the new room. There was also great practical help from Alison during the process. We are delighted with the end result and although I hate that hackneyed phrase the wow factor, it’s the first word spoken by anyone who comes into our new kitchen!”

Jenny Hearn

“The kitchen is brilliant – I can’t think of anything I’d change, so thank you to Emma from Funktional Kitchens, for the effort you took over the design. The shallow cupboards are actually great for heavy stuff like the Magimix so I don’t have to heave it out of the back of a full depth one!”

Kate Simmons

“I’d like to thank you both so much for all your help and guidance, I’m very pleased I chose Funktional Kitchens! Love the kitchen and it really does work ‘functionally’.”

Keith & Theresa Rutter

“We are very happy with the quality, design and appearance of our kitchen. Our specification was met in terms of price, real attention was given to what we wanted, and there were lots of useful ideas and suggestions. What was formerly a workable space is now a real joy to cook in! The process was efficient throughout and Emma and Alison were a pleasure to work with.”

L Jury

“We are delighted with the results of our kitchen from Functional. We found the whole process smooth, creative, and reliable. It was very well managed, and each step of the way was made clear, and we were given dates that were kept to. The creative design of the kitchen was undertaken by Vicky…we found her experience and vision invaluable. She also understands the mechanics of things as well as aesthetics, and we found the rest of the team attentive and eager to make sure the end result met with our expectations. In summary a very much appreciated positive experience of home refurbishment.”

Lindsey Mead

“Amazing transformation, everything I could have wished for and more. Just wish I had done it years ago! Many thanks Funktional Kitchens for your tip top service from design to completion.”

Lucy Whitehead

“Thanks again to you and all the team at Funktional for helping us to make our dream kitchen a reality!”

Margo Wickens

“It is two and a half years ago that my kitchen was installed and we are as thrilled as ever with it. Emma, who designed it for us was the very essence of patience – she really wanted us to be happy with the result. Well, the test of time can be a harsh one, but Functional Kitchens has passed it with flying colours. Thanks all.”

Mark Johansen

“I came to your showroom and was immediately impressed with your positive attitude. I gave you my architect plans and a brief outline of what I wanted from my kitchen and was amazed to find that you had put together a first draft plan and quotation within two hours! I had visited another local competitor earlier that day giving them the plans and exactly the same brief and never got so much as a follow up call. Choosing you over your competitors was simple, but there’s always an element of doubt when one invests this much in a kitchen, but I needn’t of worried at all, you were there throughout the whole process. Nothing was too much trouble and the end result is a kitchen that has totally surpassed my expectations. I’d have no hesitation in using your services again and would happily recommend you to anyone looking for an exceptional product delivered with an attention to service and detail that is sadly lacking in this day and age.”

Mike and Nicky Smith

“From start to finish we found Funktional Kitchens to be very personable and friendly in offering a high quality service. Nothing was too much trouble, their experience and ideas in creating a workable and stylish kitchen were invaluable. They were able to design the kitchen around our needs despite some awkward dimensions. The end product is fantastic and a great space to spend time in. We love it.”

Mr & Mrs Baker

“We could not have been more delighted with our whole experience with Funktional Kitchens. From planning stage to installation, it was a pleasure to work with and be guided by the team. We really felt that our needs and wishes were paramount, the result being that we now have a kitchen that is perfect for us.”

Mr & Mrs Field

2 years on and we completely love our kitchen. It still looks brand new and has the wow factor, we would not change a thing!! Funktional Kitchens created the best design for our space and family requirements.

Mr & Mrs Gibbs

“My husband I I had no idea what we wanted our new kitchen to look like. All we knew was that we had friends with a ‘Funktional Kitchen’ and we loved it. Vicky and Alison at Funktional managed to interpret our vague ideas and produce a beautiful design which exceeds everything that we could have imagined. The team gave us helpful advice along the way-great technical drawings for our builders to work from. They even gave me advice on striping our old kitchen by ourselves. I’m proud to say that I… read more managed this with just 4 tips to the trip in a small car. Mac and his team (their fitters) were wonderful and took such pride in their work, making tiny adaptions to the plan as required to get the look exactly right. Our kitchen fits so beautifully with our Victorian house whilst still being modern. It is a world away from the ‘high street’ kitchen that we had before. We even had the worktops made higher to save my back (I’m super tall), and a fridge freezer with extra freezer space because I love making ice cream. We are so, so glad that we chose Funktional Kitchens. Great work team!”

Mr & Mrs Hunt

“We had been contemplating a new kitchen for some years but couldn’t face it until a friend recommended Funktional Kitchens in Crouch End. After meeting Emma and Alison and running through my wish list the plans took shape! They were absolutely fantastic offering ideas and solutions and showing me the design in 3D. The advantage of working with a smaller company was that any query was answered almost immediately and I always felt nothing was too much trouble. The kitchen was delivered on schedule and the after sale service has been superb too! The quality and design of the kitchen is excellent and better than I could have dreamed of. I have no hesitation in recommending Emma and Alison – a dream team! Thank you.”

Mr & Mrs Llompart

“We had our kitchen designed and supplied recently by Functional Kitchens. We had approached four other suppliers for designs and quotes, but FK design and care in its response stood out straightaway. Emma worked really hard to produce a very beautiful and uniform design, which was not easy as the layout of our kitchen has a few columns against the wall. She had fantastic design ideas and a very clever way to make the best use of space without compromising the overall look and working within our budget. However, she never imposed her ideas and was happy to listen and review the design several times until we were totally happy with it. Alison was incredibly efficient in dealing with the administrative side, sourcing the information we needed to make decisions, adjusting delivery times to fit the building work and keeping us informed all the way though. Delivery was impeccable, and their promises about customer care were 100% accurate as they were very responsive if we needed to talk about or resolve any issues. They are professional, efficient and genuinely nice to deal with. We are very happy with the result. Time will tell but the product (Hacker) seems solid and well-built and the look of the kitchen has exactly the feel we were seeking. A very positive experience.”

Mr & Mrs Shell

“The team at Funktional Kitchens combine creative flair with technical efficiency; they really care about getting things right, and went the extra mile and more for us. We love our new kitchen!”

Nicky Smith

“Emma at Funktional Kitchens designed our kitchen, providing advice and support throughout the whole process. As we changed our minds, Emma responded with patience, advice and support. As we added to the brief, remembered things long forgotten and even post installation Funktional Kitchens still responding positively. The customer care went beyond expectations and lasted long after the job was finished. The kitchen itself is superb. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Funktional Kitchens to others.”

Sarah Miller

“I would highly recommend Funktional Kitchens to anyone wanting a sleek, modern, functional kitchen. I adore my kitchen and Vicky’s years of experience with planning and design means it doesn’t just look good, it works! The team (both Crouch End and Islington showrooms) all work as one unit so the customer service was exceptional too. The whole process from design to installation was faultless and even enjoyable!”

The Franklins

“I wanted a white kitchen and chose Funktional as I liked the subtle drawer cut outs of one of their DOCA kitchens. I am an interior decorator and knew exactly what I wanted. I went to Vicky with all my plans and she was excellent at working with me to make sure everything we needed was fitted in – no detail was too much. DOCA custom made our island, a small low shelving unit with larder and a broom cupboard. These pieces were not inexpensive but worth it. Funktional worked well with our builders who made all the display shelving above the DOCA units. I would recommend Vicky and her team without hesitation. Thank you Funktional!”
