Our Kitchens

  • Overall the experience was amazing
    Richard was so helpful with coming up different ideas. Nothing was too much when we kept changing the type of worktop. His eye for detail was impeccable with making sure everything lined up. Overall the experience was amazing we now have a beautiful kitchen that you can see the quality compared to others.
    - Mr Naylor
  • The quality of workmanship was excellent
    From our first meeting until the completion of the installation we experienced professionalism, with practical alternatives suggested, but never any pressure on final decisions. We would not hesitate to recommend Richard and his team for their knowledge and professionalism throughout the entire project.
    - Mrs Smith

In 2024 we decided to replace our kitchen, which was serviceable but showing its age and in a 1980s style. We were looking for a local company who would manage the whole project from supply to installation, finishing, flooring, decorating and disposal of waste for us and chose Benchmark in preference to outlets that appeared to be part of larger groups. We were very pleased with the results. Benchmark helped us chose our units and appliances, visited us, designed a kitchen and illustrated it with computer-produced drawings. Richard was very patient as we explored whether various ideas would “fit”, responded promptly to e-mails and was happy to make changes as we and they suggested improvements. We were very pleased to work with the fitter Paul and other tradesmen employed by Benchmark. This was a large project and took 4 weeks across Easter 2024 to complete, although we were confident things moved as fast as was possible. We had a plan and people nearly always turned up when promised. We would be very happy to recommend Benchmark to our friends.

Richard's team have done a great job with our kitchen. Electricians, plasterers, tilers and decorators were all efficient, friendly people who left everything as tidy as possible when they had finished their part of the job. Special mention to Paul who installed the bulk of it himself. We are very happy with the finished kitchen and would recommend Benchmark to anyone.

Richard at Benchmark was very patient to ensure that we were happy with the final design spec. He coordinated the various elements of the on site work so that the electrician, plasterers and painter all arrived at the appropriate times, and they were all very professional.Paul, who fitted the cabinets and flooring, connected the plumbing and slotted in tandem with the other workers, was brilliant!We are delighted with the finished kitchen, utility room and pantry, which is modern and brighter and tidier!

Great service from the design to the installation. I was 100% satisfied with the team. Paul was a perfectionist when it came to fitting and the result is superb. Timely, professional and excellent quality.

We used Richard at Benchmark Kitchens in Kidlington (PLEASE dont confuse with Benchmarx with an X at the end) to design and replace the whole of our kitchen. Richard is excellent at listening to your requirements, coming up with suitable designs which can subsequently be quickly modified as the design progresses. He also comes up with excellent suggestions and options for the various kitchen appliances.Once a firm design has been agreed, Richard managed the whole of the installation using multiple trades as required. All of the trademen used were prompt, reliable, efficient and personable. The main kitchen fitter was Paul who is superb - nothing was too big a challenge for him. Just needs coffee and biscuits :-).We are very pleased with our new kitchen and would have no hesitation on recommending Benchmark kitchens.

We are so delighted with our new kitchen designed and fitted by Benchmark. From the start Richard listened and discussed ideas, and using his experience helped to create our ideal kitchen. It is now the centre of our family home and has helped us to become more social as we talk across the new island rather than shout through doorways! Once the order was placed, delivery and fitting went to plan and the quality is outstanding. Thank you to Richard and his team for all the help and advice they gave us.

Echoing my partner Chrissie Martin's review of the way Benchmark transformed our kitchen. The process went surprisingly smoothly after we had a few headaches visiting other kitchen suppliers/fitters - we were a bit lost with it all at the time. Richard designed and the fellas fitted the kitchen brilliantly. We're really happy with the outcome, take a look... Thanks Benchmark! Thoroughly recommend Benchmark 👌

We wanted a full kitchen refit, including a knock-through kitchen-diner. Richard came up with a lovely design that accommodated all of our needs. We really appreciated the project management that Benchmark supplied too, from arranging fitters, plasterers and rubbish disposal. A great job at a good price.

We asked Richard and the team to completely change our kitchen and are delighted with the results. Richard's creativity was a godsend and his suggestions when we couldn't make a decision were just what we needed. The installation team were all lovely. The whole process was 100% stress free - quite a feat!!I love the finished product, can't wait to cook for friends and family in there again!

I had a kitchen fitted by Benchmark Kitchens and Interiors 2.5 years ago. After getting multiple quotes and designs from different companies, it was clear that the design that Richard created was the best use of the space. He provided full and detailed costings and took into account my preferences for specific items which were then incorporated into the design. The kitchen was fitted on time (within 2 weeks, in my case) and at the pre-specified budget and there were no snagging issues afterwards. 2.5 years on and I still get compliments on just how well laid out and beautiful my kitchen is. With such a great sense of how best to use a space and such a great eye for design, I wish that Benchmark Kitchens and Interiors did bathrooms as well!

We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen provided by Richard at Benchmark Kitchens. The quality and design exceeded our expectations. Richard was a pleasure to work with and very patient during our decision-making, nothing was too much trouble. The fitter, Paul, was also excellent. Perfect and very highly recommended.

We got 4 quotes for our kitchen refit and were pleasantly surprised that Benchmark were able to give a competitive quote. Glad we went with them due to the extra support with design that you get compared to other companies. We felt we were in safe hands, with the added bonus that Richard was able to source the whole lot-appliances, worktop and units for us and at quite short notice. Great email communication and support on hand to iron out any minor issues during the fit. LOVE the finished result!

I am truly delighted with the new kitchen. It has achieved the desired effect of making the kitchen feel both lighter and bigger.I am so glad that Richard suggested getting rid of the corner units, and pulling the floor units forward along that wall to provide deeper work surfaces. It all looks lovely and is working well, and it was that creative leap that led to this really effective new layout. And I love having drawers at the lower level all round. So much easier!Can I also say how pleased I was with the installation team, who executed the work with care and attention to detail, and were reliable and professional throughout.I am happy to recommend Benchmark, throughout the process, from design to installation!

We used Benchmark Kitchens for our new kitchen and cannot recommend them highly enough. We went to several high street names but weren't happy with the generic designs produced. Despite our limited budget, Richard produced an exceptional kitchen for us - combining a couple of bespoke cupboards with off-the shelf items to really make it look beautiful and function perfectly for our needs. Benchmark kitchens were extremely prompt and easy to work with throughout the process and I cannot recommend the highly enough.
