I needed some cupboards to go in my new hallway to hold coats and shoes. I couldn’t find anything off the shelf that would work. After a short internet search I came across Cloisters Design and arranged to call into the showroom. Mike Bolton chatted to us about the possibilities with bespoke cabinets and we agreed a design. Shortly afterwards Mike came to see us to do the final measuring up. A few weeks later the cabinets and fitters arrived and suddenly we had our new cupboards. I had never thought about bespoke furniture before and Cloisters Design were an excellent choice because they have enthusiastic staff, good ideas and a local joinery. As a result the whole process from initial ideas to fitted cupboards was easy. I thoroughly recommend them.

Chris Forster – Milton Keynes

There were so many decisions to make during our house renovation, just finding time to do the research on which kitchen company to use felt like a huge challenge That concern dissolved when I found Cloisters and particularly Mike Bolton. I had a good idea if the design layout and knew I wanted Oak. Mike sorted pretty much everything else. When there was so much chaos going on with the build, and a builder who didn’t exactly embrace the fundamental tenets of customer service, Mike was the antidote. To me Cloisters represents exceptional customer service, encyclopaedic knowledge of kitchen design, and warm and welcome attitude. Would (and will) definitely recommend.

Alexandra Rice – Buckinghamshire

Dear Mike The installation of our new kitchen is just about complete and Chris and I would like to say a big thank you for all your help with the design and supply, the finished job looks great and has exceeded our expectations. When we first met with you at the Olympia show we were initially impressed with ranges of cabinets you offered, your highlighting the differences served to give us a good base knowledge when looking around and we soon realised you get what you pay for. Hence our visit to you at your Hemel office where your attention to detail produced the kitchen plan far superior to any other which facilitated our decision to go ahead and place the order with you. Once delivered there seemed to be a lot of cabinets and numerous panels etc and our carpenter/kitchen fitter was very pleased to see your diagram which showed your product codes that were marked on all the items delivered. He did comment that in most cases he is not provided with such detail and how this simplified the installation process, you will also be pleased to hear he also commented on the good build quality of your cabinets. All was installed to plan with no problems, Algarve Granite did an excellent job of installing the worktops and the finished job looks superb. Once again, many thanks.

Barry & Christine Hack – Thame

We met Cloisters at a show in London. We travelled down to their showroom to have an initial conversation. It was a really nice experience. Toby was really great at helping us to get the design right. But just in case we looked at a couple of other options as well. I expected Cloisters to be much more expensive than some of the more obvious alternatives; but I was wrong.

So the choice was easy we ordered a Cloisters kitchen. We did the entire fit out ourselves and even though the kitchen was delivered in several lots…….they came faster than we could use them.

The result is an amazing kitchen that is actually better than we could have hoped for.

Thank you Cloisters.

Mr & Mrs Bodley-Scott – Oxford

We met the cloisters team at the home builders and renovation show at the NEC, right at start of our house project journey. Following an invite to a cook and experience Saturday, which was an amazing way to at first hand see and try various AEG appliances, we soon realised the huge value in Cloisters and Mike. Having compared with many of the national kitchen suppliers,  DIY chains and specialists it was clear to us Mike and the team cared most about us the customer and getting our kitchen right. Never an issue on design or a cupboard, whatever the option they could accommodate, unlike many of the high street brands. The fact they were exceptionally priced made the decision already made on service, an even easier one. Having installed the kitchen myself, the detail on labelling Cloisters make on each part and the scale drawing meant a logical build. I can say the finished look is better than we dreamt- even if I may say so fitting it myself!. We will always recommend Cloisters and we are currently looking to start the next project with Cloisters. Great team, great service, wide choice and offering. Not forgetting a seriously competitive price. We considered the rest, but the rest were surpassed by the best- Cloisters!

Kevin Durrant – Berkshire

I find it difficult to fault this company.  It was 18 months from when we first visited them and actually ordered a kitchen.  (We even got through two kitchen designers!)  On each visit, they were welcoming and helpful. When we finally ordered our kitchen my husband decided he would fit it himself.  Again, they were always on the end of a phone with help and advice.  They even went the extra mile in making a special piece for a particularly awkward corner.  Coupled with the fact that the product is excellent and the price is very competitive, I am delighted and would recommend this company very highly.

Mr & Mrs Harrison – Penn, High Wycombe

We bought our first kitchen from Mike and the team 5 years ago and were so impressed we’re back for another. Our new house and requirements are very different from the first but we were very pleased to find that Mike and the team offering the same high level of service and quality. As the house was built around the kitchen we made numerous changes to the initial design all of which Mike happily and skillfully incorporated into the final order. Best of all we paid the same price as we did 5 years ago! Thanks, we’ll be back again.

Simon & Zoe Gale – Surrey

To say I am delighted with my new Cloisters Direct kitchen would be an understatement. The quality of the doors; the range available and the excellent planning suggestions contributed by Mike all add up to an unbeatable package. The beauty of a new kitchen is in the detail: little things make the difference like cream interiors for cream cupboards instead of maple which was on offer everywhere else. Added to which the knowledge that they can source pretty well anything you need. My builders are so impressed with the new kitchen that they have all now got the Cloisters CD – quality speaks for itself.

Tracy Reeve – Maidenhead

It is unusual to receive first class service with top quality products together with outstanding value for money but Cloisters have achieved this. From intitial design through to aftersales we and our customers have been impressed with the products and the service given to us by Mike and his team.

Builders Property Developers – Kent & Sussex

It is unusual to receive first class service with top quality products together with outstanding value for money but Cloisters have achieved this. From intitial design through to aftersales we and our customers have been impressed with the products and the service given to us by Mike and his team.

Builders Property Developers – Kent & Sussex

It is a year since we first visited Cloisters after reading an ad in The Telegraph. From the moment we phoned to arrange a visit to the time the kitchen was delivered through all stages of advice and planning we have been completely satisfied with the service provided. After discussions with and adice from Mike Bolton we feel we have the kitchen design and style we wanted and the one that best suits the house. During the fitting we decided to add extra units and are about to add more and both times Cloisters have been extremely accommodating. Although we had to wait some time for the units to be delivered the wait was worth while for the sheer quality and workmanship of the units. Choosing and buying our kitchen was a pleasurable experience and we have been completely satisfied with the result thanks to the professionalism of all at Cloisters. We would have no problem reccommending this company to anyone looking for a good quality kitchen and a bit of personal service.

Mr & Mrs Everett – Surrey

The guys at Cloisters have been fantastic in giving a personalised service right through from design, implementation and after sales service. The have also been instrumental in offering excellent ideas for our kitchen given our requirements. I would definitely do business again with them.

Imran & Ayesha Ahmad – Surrey

My wife and I recently purchased a Sheraton kitchen from Cloisters Design Ltd. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mike Bolton for his excellent design and for all the help and support he gave us throughout the project.

I can whole heartedly recommend Cloisters Design Ltd. They gave us truly professional advice, first class service and a product that could not be beaten for price. Thank you Cloisters Design Ltd.

Mr & Mrs Warburton – Prestwood, Buckinghamshire

What really differentiated Cloisters though was their enthusiasm in delivering a product that fitted our requirements so well and also the personal customer service we received.

They were also able to supply all the appliances at a much lower cost than we could source anywhere. All in all, a good find.

Matt & Clare – Iver, Bucks

Thanks to the excellent help we received from Mike, we think our recently installed kitchen is brilliant. The overall design advice and the style of kitchen is exactly what we were looking for. One drawback was the “Provence” sink which needed 2 replacements before satisfactory installation could be achieved, but now installed it is a great feature. Good support was received during installation from Cloisters by our installer, who commented favourably on the quality of the kitchen units. Please pass on our thamks to all concerned at Cloisters – we will certainly recommend you.

Maureen and Bill Ashurst – Crowborough, East Sussex

Having scoured the internet looking for a quality kitchen company, I stumbled across Cloisters.

The range of kitchen options available is superb and the design service – not to mention the friendly staff – is spot on!

I was not disappointed by the quality of my chosen units – I went for a oak painted shaker finished in a gorgeous Farrow and Ball pointing.

It contrasts well with my black range cooker and American fridge freezer and belfast sink and I have to say, it all looks much more expensive than I actually paid, so I would definately recommend Cloisters to anyone – provided you can find them tucked away in a neat unit in an industrial estate in Hemel Hempstead! Dont worry, their website takes care of that problem!

Mr & Mrs Ryan – Surrey

We are very pleased by the service we have received from Cloisters and from Mickey the fitter. Occasionally small problems have occurred when we have had to make decisions on the hoof. Mickey has been helpful, flexible, a good problem solver and patient with us. He was philosophical about problems that have caused him extra work, showed initiative and was very capable.

Mrs. Stark – Oxford

From the moment we first visited, Cloisters gave us an excellent service. The advice and subsequent support from design to delivery was faultless. Thank you Mike for your patience!

We now have an attractive kitchen of high quality and appearance.

Kevin & Christine – Weybridge, Surrey

From the initial fax to the final delivery I was very impressed with the service of Mike and the team at Cloisters. Having looked at high street brands and been unimpressed, I decided to give The Telegraphs recommendation a go, and couldn’t have done better. I drove up to the shop in Hemel Hempstead to meet up with Mike to discuss the plans and found him to be well informed and incredibly helpful. No detail was too small and nothing too much trouble. I’m delighted with the end result and only sorry that I lived too far away to use the fitting service as well. Many thanks for all your help.

Mr & Mrs Lynne – Hampshire

I would just like to say how pleased i am with my new kitchen. The quality is excellent, our kitchen fitter liked the fact that everything was numbered to coincide with the kitchen plan, it worked perfectly. We were impressed from day one, the showroom, staff and their professionalism. Whenever i called with a query i got a response straight away. Thanks Mike for all your help.

Mr & Mrs Marsh – Oxford

Thank you for all your help over the last few months, you’ve done a great job in helping me choose & getting everything co-ordinated – as a result I’ve spent an extra £3k from Cloisters. Its refreshing to deal with someone who isn’t a pushy salesman & listens to what the customer wants!! I’m really pleased with the end result & the worktops in particular are fantastic. Mrs Keable

Mrs Keable – Surrey

We would like to say how thrilled we are with our kitchen and thank Mike for all his help and advice on making our new ‘Live in Kitchen’ into the contemporary and comfortable room that we hoped it would be. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cloister Designs. Kind regards Hilary Mitchell

Hilary Mitchell – Surrey

We chose Cloisters after seeing them featured in the Daily Telegraph – and we are very glad that we did. The small showroom belies the huge range of kitchens, worktops and accessories available. From the start to the end of the process Nick was very helpful in helping us refine our design and select the best complementary mix of units, handles, lighting and worktops. He was always attentive to our needs – for example being able to supply our range cooker and other ancillaries at competitively, so that we were able to obtain everything from one supplier. He also chased down a couple of minor problems with bits of “trim” and it was great to know we had his support throughout. . In our view, Cloisters represents outstanding value for money – high quality units and worktops which are built to last, backed up by friendly, effective service, and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone embarking on a kitchen project.

I took a gamble with Cloisters, I had not been recommended by anybody but I figured they would not be in business as long as they have if they didn’t offer a good service & I was not disappointed. They listened & interpreted my ideas & designed me a kitchen that is FABULOUS, nothing was ever too trivial & I felt completely at ease with Karen From beginning to end it has been plain sailing all the way, a couple of things were damaged on arrival, they were replaced before I even knew about it. Would I recommend Cloisters – Totally 100%, I have a bespoke British built kitchen that looks AMAZING. THANK YOU Cloisters

Sharon Collins – Edgware

Cloisters Design were the 4th company we approached for a quote – I came across them whilst trying to source appliances on the internet as the 3 kitchen suppliers I had approached for a quote suggested it was cheaper if I sourced them myself. Having been disappointed in the lack of clear design and full breakdown of costs from the other companies, it was so refreshing to deal with Mike who gave us a ball park figure on the spot (based on an existing design) when we visited the showroom and within days he had surveyed our kitchen and given us a full costing on a much improved design. Cloisters were able to supply everything – furniture, appliances, accessories – so stress levels plummeted as we only had to deal with one supplier – and the cost of the appliances was cheaper than from internet suppliers I had looked at. The different tradesmen who worked on the kitchen at various stages were all extremely polite and worked efficiently and cleanly. Keith did a fantastic job fitting the units and the appliances – and offered some good advice. All in all, I am extremely pleased with my new kitchen – I wanted a kitchen with ‘Wow factor’ and got it! Cloisters are a professional company with excellent customer service – it’s been an absolute pleasure doing business with them and I have no hesitation in recommending them – in fact, I’ve already done so!

Margret Bradley – Mill Hill, London

Thanks for the great service, and the kitchen itself, it looks anything but inexpensive! It fitted in with our high standard Grand Designs exhibition stand beautifully.

Tom Brown – London

We have now bought and installed 2 kitchens from Cloisters. I was very pleased with the time that Mike spent with us while selecting our kitchens, we were not rushed or pressured into making a decision. The kitchens both arrived and were of a very high quality and look great. They were also a very competitive price. There was a little confusion over the delivery with missing items although this was soon sorted out and we are now very happy with our kitchens.

Mark Brodie – London

Nick and I purchased a kitchen from Cloisters Direct because we felt that they offered an excellent variety of good quality kitchens to choose from. We did lots of research before we made our decision and found they offered the best value for money in comparison to other kitchen companies. A new kitchen is an important decision and the staff at Cloisters were friendly and flexible towards our requirements, offering extremely practical and useful advice when planning the kitchen itself. We had our kitchen installed in November last year and since then all our friends and family have paid compliments! We would therefore have no hesitation in recommending Cloisters to anyone who is considering buying a new kitchen.

Emma Wood & Nick Carlino – Kingston

What a fantastic, young, dynamic company! We went to Cloisters with a wish list which we had been told by other companies wasn’t possible. Cloisters incorporated everything we wanted into a very stylish kitchen at an affordable price. All snags were dealt with promptly, efficiently and politely. Special thanks to Mike for his wonderful design and patience and to Christine for dealing with our telephone enquiries professionally. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.

Dorothy and Brian Cassidy – Surbiton

Our tired old kitchen was replaced by a wonderfully smart new one with help from the very patient team at Cloisters – particularly gratifying as it is a small room and we needed lots of help with planning to maximise space and still be able to work properly. The service was seamless and always responsive. If I ever have the chance (and the energy) I would certainly use Cloisters again, and will be recommending them to anyone who asks. They made what could have been a very difficult job into a relatively easy one.

Andrea & Ken – North London

We would like to express our sincere thanks to Mike Bolton and the team at Cloisters. Mike designed the kitchen we wanted within our budget. The product is of a great quality and looks absolutely amazing! Thanks again Mike.

Jake & Louise Sweeney – Kingston Upon Thames

After a huge amount of research into bespoke kitchens, we found that Cloisters could give us a very high spec, high quality made to measure kitchen for considerably less than the competition. We bought a shaker kitchen with oak worktop. The quality of service was fantastic – Mike was very helpful with adapting our design to the dimensions of our kitchen and the workmanship is completed to a very high standard. I would recommend a kitchen from Cloisters unequivocally.

Rob & Kate Balch – Battersea, London

What a fantastic local kitchen company. They offered Mike who planned the kitchen taking account of our needs and preferences. They were agreeable to a supply only service and Mike organised everthing from start to finish. Gave great advice and now have a fabulous quality kitchen to be proud of. Thank you Cloisters and thank you Mike!

Georgina and Ross Fitzgerald – London

After weeks of hunting for a new kitchen without success, we followed the recommendation in the Daily Telegraph and contacted Cloisters, and were are very glad we did.

They were able to accommodate our specific requests and offered some very valuable advice with particular aspects of the kitchen. The follow-up service provided by Mike was second to none and we are now the very happy of owners of a fantastic kitchen.

Kathryn and Jim – London

Having received estimates from a well known company who came to my house, expected me to chose everything including appliances from a brochure and sign up there and then and a high street company who at least allowed me time to make decisions but had a limited range, I was feeling rather unenthusiastic about the idea of kitchen renovation. I then saw Cloisters on the TV programme “Grand Designs” and decided to see what they could offer.

I was amazed by the difference in approach. My initial consultation lasted well over 2 hours even though, by then, I had a reasonable idea as to what I wanted. There was no pressure to make instant decisions but Mike made many very helpful suggestions for improvement and was happy to redraw the design several times until I felt it was exactly what I wanted. The choice of doors and worktops was vast, rather than limited to a narrow range from one company. I also bought all my appliances from Cloisters as, despite having searched the internet extensively, I could not find them at a lower price anywhere.

I managed to achieve a high quality kitchen with a granite worktop and top of the range appliances for the same price as I was quoted by the high street companies for a far inferior version. The personal attention, delivery and after sales service was second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend Cloisters.

Daphne – Shepherds Bush

I am very pleased with the new kitchen which is well-designed and quality-built. The team at Cloisters have been very helpful from start to finish and have dealt with my other contractors in a professional way, which made the entire project easy to manage. Accordingly, I have no hesitation in highly recommending Cloisters. Bram van der Velden, London N7

Van Der Velden – N7, London

I’m so pleased with my beautiful new kitchen (and appliances) from Cloisters, and I would very happily recommend the company to others. I thought that they offered excellent value for money, but above all, I really valued the excellent customer service. Nick spent a great deal of time with me guiding me through my decision making process, and I felt I could phone him at any time (from start to finish) for advice and assistance. It was the excellent customer service I had from the first consultation that was the deciding factor for me in choosing Cloisters, and I don’t have any regrets in the least.

Mr & Mrs Estall – Richmond

If you would like to leave your testimonial, click here.

Mike was very approachable and guided us through numerous design options, challenging where appropriate; giving us the confidence that we were dealing with a local company who could work with us to design and build “our” kitchen. Mike recommended Dom (Kiwi Contractors) as the project manager / builder / kitchen installer who was fantastic too, very professional and friendly. Dom worked very closely with Mike to deliver a superb finished result. A post-installation problem was resolved without question by both Mike and Dom, the only issue in the twelve week project. Based on our experience, we have no hesitation in recommending Cloisters Design for a complete kitchen solution.

John & Kari Evans – Hemel Hempstead

From the outset Mike made us feel secure that we were dealing with the right company. He is both approachable and extremely knowledgeable and we even managed to get our kitchen under-budget!! We are delighted with our new kitchen and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the company.

Michele and Tony Reeves – Watford

A BIG THANK YOU to Mike Bolton, the creative director of CLOISTERS DESIGN for his fantastic input in the design of our new kitchen and all your practical advice. We have to say we love our kitchen. The whole space makes us both feel contented & relaxed. We are looking forward to many happy & memorable years cooking, entertaining & just enjoying it. Thank you. We did indulge & purchase a granite worktop which we think was so worth it. We almost caress it every morning. When I review why I chose ‘Cloisters’ – which I am frequently asked by friends thinking about updating their kitchens; I always say because of Mike. He is a really professional kitchen designer, being quite assertive when we were being indecisive; offering a genuine opinion when we did not know, being honest about the dynamics & workings of the kitchen and answering some simple questions & worries without making us feel totally clueless. THANK YOU. Cloisters are very privileged to have Mike in their team. Geoff & Mark, the kitchen installers were fantastic too, so professional, friendly & genuinely did a great job. ‘Algarve Granite’ who supplied the work surface were also very professional installing the granite & giving us the ‘icing on the cake’ as it were. Cloisters has a great team of people. We always felt happy & inspired when in any of their company & confident that everyone would (and did!) do a great job! Thank you. We were recommended to your company & we will do the same too. We are very happy to show our kitchen in St Albans for your future clients to give some advice & tips. We love it and I am 100% confident that anybody having a Cloisters kitchen will be thrilled. Wishing you and the company much success for the future.

Giles & Jacqueline Thomas – St Albans

We found Mike easy to talk to and very helpful in designing our new kitchen. There were a few issues during installation but Cloisters were happy to sort out without question and did so efficiently. We are very happy with the final outcome and based on our experience we would recommend them.

Tony & Gillian Potter – Rickmansworth

Thank you to Mike from Cloisters for designing our fabulous kitchen, from start to finish it all ran very smoothly. Mike had great input, ideas and vision of what it would look like. We are really pleased with the quality and design. We will definitely recommend Cloisters to friends and family. Thank you.

Lisa & Matthews Penn – Hemel Hempstead

Dear Mike, Shirley and I would like to express our sincere thanks to you and the team for the great design perfectly executed by Adam, Jake and Andy. We approached the replacement of our kitchen with some trepidation as we were uncertain as to what we wanted.  You were very patient with us finding out how we used the kitchen and suggesting various possibilities before coming up with a beautiful design which met all our needs and requests.  Your explanation of the latest kitchen equipment was instrumental in us selecting a range of appliances that have proved to deliver excellent food.  I’ve had pizza three times!!!  Seriously, more like Master Chef. Having the island with the integrated hob makes cooking a real pleasure with us being able to cook and have a conversation facing our guests.  Everyone remarks on your excellent design and quality of the kitchen units and the granite worktops. The team were easy to talk to and always explained what they were doing and when at each stage.  They were also very tidy and cleaned up every day so that the kitchen and utility rooms were the only areas which were impacted. The quality of the workmanship was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We were recommended to yourselves and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and indeed have already done so.

Mr & Mrs Whilyman – Berkhamstead

We met Cloisters at an Exhibition and went along to the showroom to discuss our requirements. Really enjoyed the planning process which included a radical rethink on layout suggested by Colin, and we are delighted with the end result. Highly recommended.

Mark And Gilly Webb – Hertfordshire

Hi, Mike. We would like to say how delighted we are with the new kitchen.   We thank you for your planning and advice.  The cupboards and quartz work well together and the utility part is a lot smarter. The kitchen is still small!  But now it is beautifully formed!   This is due to Paul’s considerable skills and his meticulous attention to detail.  His heart must have sunk when he saw what needed to be done. Please pass on to him our thanks.   We hope you treasure him! Also, please pass on our thanks to Colin. We hope you enjoy your break this month. Best wishes, Marilyn and Derek Saunders

Marilyn and Derek Saunders – Boxmoor

Kitchen shopping…..can be hugely exciting or majorly overwhelming. I wanted to walk in to a shop and say, “Here’s my space, create something amazing with it!” Even before pen was put to the proverbial graph paper, I was extensively quizzed about how MY family used a kitchen, and what we got was more than I thought was possible. The staff at Cloisters know exactly what their talking about.  What works and what doesn’t. Service, and even after sales service has been excellent.

Kirra Moser – Watford

How to achieve a beautiful new kitchen: first phone Cloisters and speak to Mike.  Before you know it you will have a set of drawings in front of you that make your hopes and tentative suggestions look achievable.  As a person who never finds choosing easy, I was amazed how painlessly I had made multiple decisions with Mike prompting me.  I even chose all the electrical appliances for the kitchen in one session.  Now I have this lovely ivory kitchen with fantastic cosmic black worktops and mirrored splashback.  Everyone who comes in admires the kitchen and says, “I would never have thought of using mirror like that”.  So thank you Cloisters and especially Mike who made it all happen. Marion Pearce

Marion Pearce – St. Albans

Would I have Cloisters Design again if I needed a new kitchen in the future? You bet I would They have all the patience in the world. Work hard and are always obliging. Having your old kitchen gutted and starting again is quite an upheaval. Colins cheery optimism eases the way and I am enjoying the splendid result. Thank you all. Maria and Gerald

Maria Ford – Aylesbury

Just a quick note to thank you all for your help in the design and construction of Julie’s playroom at our new house. The space at one end of the house has been filled with all sorts of gadgets that I do not understand, but the result seems to be plates of splendid food, which is  extremely satisfactory.   I know that Julie is very happy with the kitchen, and so am I. It was good to go through the whole process of design through to installation, and watch the whole thing come together. Even when the inevitable couple of small glitches occurred, your prompt attention meant that drams did grow into crisis’s!   I will be more than happy to recommend Cloisters Design to anyone who is considering the purchase of a new kitchen, and will be happy to extend an invitation to any members of BNI Chilterns to come into our house to see what your work looks like.   Once again, thanks!   Mike Lupton.

Mike Lupton – Croxley Green

We would definitely recommend Cloisters to any potential customer. We did a lot of research on various company’s  on all types of kitchens from the bottom of the range to the top we chose Cloisters mainly  for Toby’s attention to detail and nothing was too much trouble Don’t be put off by them not having a computer drawing of your project. The cad drawing worked for our kitchen fitter his comments were the best kitchen he had ever fitted. We are over the moon with the final result.

Clive & Debbie Hill – Leverstock Green

We commenced construction of an extension to provide a larger kitchen and utility room and had approached a local branch of a National DIY chain for advice and design of these rooms. This did not leave a good customer experience and an exorbitant price even when discounted was the result.  I had read an article in the  Telegraph about Cloisters and decided to visit for a consultation which was set up with Mike. The initial meeting was indeed  much more informative with sectioned cabinets of each model type shown and discussed with an initial design already prepared through drawings sent. The order was placed with various appliances and we are now enjoying the new kitchen. I have no hesitation in recommending Cloisters and their team for providing an excellent product at a competitive price and giving a great customer experience. Thanks to Mike and the team.

Daniel Wynne – Borehamwood

Hi Colin – just a quick email to say thank you for all your hard work and patience on sorting out our kitchen – we’re getting used to the layout and it’s a joy to work in. (Terri loves it and is spending a lot of time just admiring it).  Would you like to come and have a look and maybe take some photos?  We will pop in with tap and knobs and to say thank you properly. Thanks once again – Richard and Terri

Richard & Terri Badrick – Hemel Hempstead

We are so pleased with our new kitchen – it really has the wow factor and exceeded our expectations. We felt in safe hands with Mike who used his creative flair and experience to design our dream kitchen. We would certainly recommend Cloisters.

Mr & Mrs McCarthy – Harpenden

Our kitchen is now installed and we just wanted to give some feedback to say how happy we are with our beautiful kitchen from Cloisters. The units were extremely well built and constructed, and if you are thinking of going to one of the ‘big sheds’, give cloisters a call and you will be pleasantly surprised. The builders who installed our kitchen also commented on how well built the units were. What a pleasure it was to receive such fantastic, prompt customer service from Mike and his team. Mike was very knowledgeable and extremely patient with our huge number of questions, and the constant changing of our minds. Oh, and the appliances where also priced competitively too. Well done Cloisters. Thanks, from a very satisfied customer.

Mr & Mrs Howie – Hemel Hempstead

After many months of careful planning our kitchen is finally installed and finished and looking better than I could have imagined. Cloisters, and in paritcular Mike, were exceptional in their ability to source all of the items that I desired, many of which were not from existing suppliers, and at a competitive price. Everything was delivered correct and on time, and the cabinets are of a fantastic quality, far better than any ‘high street’ supplier. Superb quality and superb service. If you are thinking of buying a new kitchen give Cloisters a call.

Joanne Ashgrove – Hemel Hempstead

We can’t speak highly enough about our experience with Cloisters: From the first meeting with Mike who interpreted our wish list into the design we dreamed of, right through to the installation by Keith (who is a real craftsman), nothing seemed to be too much trouble. In fact if there was any trouble at all, it was from us being demanding customers and constantly changing our minds about appliances and the small details, but Cloisters met the challenge of us and passed with flying colours! Very happy to recommend them to anyone.

Mr & Mrs Welberry – Hemel Hempstead

I love, love, love my new kitchen. The excellent customer service from Mike, from the detailed plans to the completed item has made the project really enjoyable. Mike has been patient, responsive and 100% reliable on seeing the whole project through. He has leased with our kitchen fitter to sort every querry we have had. We have been singing your praises to everyone ! Thank you for giving us the sleek contempary kitchen/ living space that is 100% functional as well. Ruth Westwood

Ruth Westwood – Pampisford, Cambridge

After an initial hick-up over the delivery, which was dealt with promptly and efficiently by Mike, I have finally had my kitchen installed. The finished result has easily exceeded my expectations. The quality of the units and the overall design, both in terms of aesthetics and practicality could only be matched by a far more expensive product. For sheer quality, Cloister kitchens are in a class of their own!

Jaimie Stevens – Dunstable

Having spent aver a month looking for our dream kitchen we came across cloisters direct on the net. Just another kitchen company I thought. I was very surprised and impressed when I rang up and spoke to Mike, in fact I spoke to Mike on many occasions as did my very demanding wife. Well fairs fair it is her kitchen. The service and advice was great and consistent and when the deal was done, the kitchen was delivered and we are all very pleased.

David Evans – Watford

Having built many homes and commercial buildings im always on the look out for another kitchen company. I think I’ve found the one now. Cloisters product is both in-expensive and high quality. Thanks to Colin and Mike for the help they gave me.

Building Developer – Tring

I have recently fitted one of your supply only kitchens and would like to congratulate you on your professionalism and service. It was a breath of fresh air to fit a kitchen supplied by a third party which not only fitted but was un-damaged and was of a good quality at a low price.

Kitchen Fitter – St. Albans

I would just like to say that the service I received from Colin and his team was second to none. The kitchen has been fitted and looks like it cost ten times the price it did. I would recommend the service to everybody. Thanks.

Barry Holmes – Hemel Hempstead

Thank you for a fast and efficient service. my new kitchen was ordered and delivered with speed and ease. now it’s fitted it looks great. all this and it was cheap!! thank you.

Lesley Bennet – St. Albans

The service I received was fantastic. From their planning ideas and suggestions in our first conversation, I knew my project was in good hands! I was extremely impressed with the quality of the product!! My kitchen looks like £12,000 not £2,000. Well done guys.

Stephanie Harris – St. Albans

I am delighted with the quality, appearance and most of all the price of my new kitchen. A really professional job that looks a million dollars.I would unhesitatingly recommend the product.

Tim Harvey – Hertfordshire

I used to use Howdens kitchens and im so glad i found an alternative. Cloisters are much better quality and cheaper. Thanks to the guys there for there imput in design. I’ve bought a few now and the service is always great.

James Burrows – Hemel Hempstead

I have to say when i bought myself a new kitchen, i didn’t realise how much pleasure a kitchen could bring me. I have countless hours staring at the beauteous craftsmanship, delicious curves and wooden goodness. In fact i might actually buy another kitchen for upstairs so i can sleep nearer my cloisters kitchen. Cloisters has made me feel one with nature and brought timber alive for me. Also the chrome finishes on some of the appliances are quite simply exsquisite, i haven’t used the taps yet as i want to always be able to see my magnified face in the platinum decadence for years to come. Thank you cloisters and i look forward to your return

Ivan Icekitchen – Hertfordshire

As a professional fitters we have been fitting cloisters direct kitchens for number of years, the quality I am sure cannot be beaten . With the added backup of mike at cloisters on the design side of things I would nave no hesitation in recommending to any of my clients to buy a cloisters direct kitchen. Thanks guys.

Abrams Installations – Herts

I have just had my kitchen fitted by Cloisters and am very impressed with the quality of the kitchen units given how much we paid. The unit doors are very thick and solid – you cannot tell the difference from Magnet. And they were going to charge me three times as much!

Erika Reid – Hemel Hempstead

We wanted a hand painted kitchen with the appearance of a hand-built kitchen without paying a small fortune quoted by the likes of smallbones. Searching the internet for a local company Cloisters provided exactly what we wanted. They designed units to fit, provided low depth wall units as required and advised re fitting which we wanted to do ourselves.The units arrived primed and were easy to paint the colour we wanted. A great service and we now have a fantastic looking, quality kitchen at about 1/3 of the cost quoted by other firms.

Richard Davies – Abbots Langley

My kitchen was a self install but I got excellent advice and guidance on the choice of units. The delivery was prompt, including the extra unit I had forgotten to order. Some queries on technical points regarding the assembly were handled promptly and accurately be e-mail. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cloisters both for the quality of service and the range of units available.

Frank Bryne – Little Staughton

Delivered on time and in perfect condition. Very happy with everything really. The quality of the kitchen is very high and the design and layout was perfect for our requirements. Mike was extremely helpful and provided an excellent service.

Jeff and Tricia Woodall – Dunstable

Many thanks to Colin at Cloisters for his help – and willingness to spend a considerable amount of time – designing our kitchen. His ideas led to us modifying the architect’s design for window sizes and locations, ensuring that the units fitted in perfectly. We are also delighted with the units and would strongly recommend the company.

Rob – St Albans

Cloisters really are a hidden jem. We visited many kitchen companies before we were recommended to go see Mike at Cloisters. Mike’s ideas were by far the best suggestions we had and at every stage that we changed it, Mike changed the designs without a moan or groan in sight. Good quality, good price. They have a great service that is pitched perfectly. Use them!

Tony Chamberlain – Wheathampstead

We were delighted our new kitchen – it’s sylish, practical, robust and very reasonably priced. The planning advice we received was excellent; Mike and Colin were very approachable and really listened to our ideas. They gave as sound advice based on their wide experience. The extensive range of kitchens and accessories available was superb. Our fitter was most impressed with the quality of the units. We have already been recommending Cloisters to all our friends!

Dave & Chris Luddington – Croxley Green

We are delighted with our kitchen. Right from the start when Mike Bolton came to design it we felt confident that we were being considered as individual customers, and his ideas were just right for our needs – without sales pressure. And when we tweaked the design during installation, he dealt with things with no fuss and met all our needs. Mike’s ideas and the quality of the units has transformed our kitchen.

John and June Sweetman – Hemel Hempstead

A great find – will be back to use them again. A refreshing approach to business with a ‘here / how can I help / how can we sort that out attitude’ combined with a true undersatnding of the product that they offer – need I say more!

Chris – Hertfordshire

I would like to thank Mike @ Cloisters Design for his great design & service with my new kitchen. The kitchen looks amazing and everyone is commenting on the quality of the units. I really shopped around when it came to buying my kitchen and Cloisters Design were definately the most competitively priced on the market . The kitchen was delivered on time and with very helpful staff. Thank you once again for an excellent job.

Mrs Clements – Chorleywood

Cloisters were very helpful with the planning and design of our new kitchen and made lots of good suggestions which improved the overall project. They answered questions promptly, were flexible with the supply dates, delivered when they said they would and everything was complete. Our fitters had no problems installing what had been supplied or following the plan. We also got excellent value for money.

Full marks Cloisters – we will certainly use you again.

J Smith & L Hook – Taverham, Norfolk

I recently purchased a kitchen from Cloister’s, I believe for our budget we manged to get a great quality kitchen with a fantastic design thanks to Mike. I realised after shopping around that not only is Cloister’s good quality you also get flexibility with design as they offer bespoke carcases with a good selection of door’s.

I have no hesitation in recomending this organisation and am grateful that they acheived the look that I aimed for. We got the look!

Many Thanks, Maria Carillo & Richard Lowe.

Maria Carillo & Richard Lowe – Kings Langley

We bought some kitchen furniture from you and it has proved to be every bit as good and useful as we had hoped.

Michael & Suzanne Watkins – Hertfordshire

Really impressed by the quality of the kitchen. It is exactly what we wanted and significantly cheaper than anywhere else we found.

It was great to be able to design the kitchen it to fit in with what we needed, there were so many options available to us and ideas given to us.

Catherine Spitzer – St. Albans

Hurrah it’s all finished and looks fantastic. Having spent months looking at competitors brochures but not liking what we saw in the showrooms we were so lucky to pop in and visit Colin one wet Sunday morning. His kitchens were exactly what we had imagined for our new extension- real wood,great craftmanship and a quality product.

The service was excellent – nothing was too much trouble and we are busy passing on your details to all of our friends, thank you again for all of your help.

Nikki & Simon – Kings Langley, Herts

We would like to offer our thanks to Cloisters for turning our desired kitchen into reality. From our very first discussion Mike not only understood what we wanted but also delivered within budget. Any issues were dealt with professionally and quickly and our kitchen fitter (not connected with Cloisters) stated that build quality was as good as he had fitted. Mike, Colin and everyone connected have been helpful and professional and I would have no hesitation in offering a recommendation to any prospective customers.

Ron Deprez – Hemel Hempstead

Having recently had an extension we spent a considerable amount of time choosing a new kitchen. We settled on Cloisters and were very pleased with the end result. Mike spent time and care to advise the options available and there was no pressure to buy. We would recommend the company for those looking for a quality bespoke kitchen at an affordable price.

Simon Wills – Chelmsford, Essex

Fantastic design, you were so patient with us (we had no idea what we wanted to do) The kitchen looks amazing ! Thanks Mike and Keith

Sue & Paul Russell – Flaunden

We have been delighted with every aspect of our new kitchen. There has been excellent attention to detail throughout the entire process, from initial meetings with Mike the designer through to the final installation undertaken by Paul. We would recommend Cloisters highly. The quality is very high and the cost has been competitive.” Thank you very much again for your excellent work. Looking forward to receiving the vouchers. Paola and Matt Bond

Paola & Matt Bond – St. Albans

Mr & Mrs Field from Hemel Hempstead want everyone to know how thrilled they are with their new kitchen. Mike was there every step of the way & was always on hand with ideas, inspiration and knowledge. In our words “our kitchen may not of been the kitchen it is today without Mike” “We would recommend you every time and we also want everyone to know that we have also received fantastic after care.” Their testimonial was sent very thoughtfully on a printed card.

Mr & Mrs Field – Hemel Hempstead

From start to finish Mike and the team made the process very easy; providing great technical advice and suggestions on improving our design. The quality of our kitchen is excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend them. Kylie and Matt, Berkhamsted

Kylie and Matt – Berkhamsted

We have been bowled over by our amazing kitchen, designed and supplied by Nick Merriman at Cloisters. He covered every angle so that it not just looks incredible but functions easily. Our builders said it was the easiest kitchen to install yet with no problems. Our black appliances have all been great too. Thank you for all your prompt responses from start to finish, and delivering some items in person! I shall and have been recommending you to friends. Thanks again Catherine Smith

Catherine Smith – Harpenden

From concept to installation the service from Cloisters was excellent. Working with Mike we came up with a design which met our expectations and has added the ‘wow’ factor to our house. Family and friends have remarked at the quality of the units. I would recommend Cloisters to anyone considering a quality kitchen.

Mr and Mrs Truelove – Chelmsford, Essex

After many months of careful planning our kitchen is finally installed and finished and looking better than I could have imagined. Cloisters, and in paritcular Mike, were exceptional in their ability to source all of the items that I desired, many of which were not from existing suppliers, and at a competitive price. Everything was delivered correct and on time, and the cabinets are of a fantastic quality, far better than any ‘high street’ supplier. Superb quality and superb service. If you are thinking of buying a new kitchen give Cloisters a call.

Joanne Ashgrove – Hemel Hempstead

We are so pleased with our beautiful new kitchen, installed and designed by Cloisters. All the workmen they use are totally trustworthy and skilled. We gave them a spare key and let them get on with it! The units are solid, well built and look fantastic. The time and care spent on fitting the kitchen is well worth it. I can’t imagine what one of the large DIY stores’ kitchens would be like, if they only take a few days to fit! We would not hesitate to recommend Cloisters to anyone.

Mrs E Haywood – Hemel Hempstead

Thank you so much for all your help. You provide both the value for money with the furniture and first class customer services. We quite simply would not have got both of these from a high street kitchen provider. We have no hesitations in recommending you.

Mr & Mrs Cormican – Watford

The service we got to help design the right kitchen was really helpful and we love the outcome. We did fit it ourselves and I would recommend you make sure that you have taken accurate measuerements etc for this to go ok. Now it is done we love the kitchen and the the design of it works well for us

Edita Pancic – Watford

After looking as far afield as Ingatestone in Essex and Epsom in Surrey, we happened upon Cloisters in nearby Hemel Hempstead.  We are very pleased with the appearance and quality of the kitchen units, the service and especially with the kitchen plan prepared by Mike which managed to deliver all of the requirements on our wish list.  We very much appreciated his helpful and enthusiastic approach.  We would certainly recommend Cloisters to anyone looking for a good quality kitchen.

Saw the advert in the “Telegraph” and decided to get more information. From start to finish we were very happy with the service provided and you even managed to deliver all the way to us in the very North of Scotland. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to all.

Stuart & Jo Geekie – Caithness

I can thoroughly endorse Cloisters Design. At every stage of development for my kitchen I have been impressed and pleased with their care and attention they have focused on ensuring that I received the right kitchen. While the price ended up at being more than I was initially expecting the overall effect is excellent and I am thrilled with the result. There are many kitchen providers in the market place – however the team at Cloisters offer a brilliant all round service and I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

We first came across Cloisters on the internet and requested their brochure.  Having liked what we saw we got in touch with Toby and arranged to meet at the Home renovation and Building Exhibition later in the year.  This we did, and very quickly decided to go ahead and work with Toby to design a kitchen from Cloisters for our new build.  A year later and many exchanges of emails, telephone calls and two visits to their design HQ in Hemel Hempstead we now have a beautiful, fully functioning kitchen just waiting for us to move in.  We cannot recommend Cloisters too highly and particularly Toby for his endless patience with us and the ongoing design process.

Mike & Maureen Walsby – Stratford on Avon

We heard about Cloisters through an Alison Cork article in the Telegraph newspaper ~ planning a large extension, it was important that we created a fantastic kitchen/family room but at a realistic price. Cloisters delivered all this and much, much more!!!

The company deserves all the rich praise it receives! Colin & Mike took complete control of the whole kitchen planning process and guided us expertly from design stage through to final delivery and granite installation.

The Company guarantees complete customer care and we weren’t disappointed! The whole process has been seamless, from our first meeting, when we received a very warm and welcoming reception, through to professional and expert kitchen design! Always at the end of the phone to answer any queries and with customer care that extends to their wider team ~ thanks to Stuart who delivered the kitchen and John and his team who travelled from Bridlington to template and then fit our granite work-surfaces.

Cloisters scores maximum points all round ~ a quality product and fantastic customer care but importantly it succeeds where other companies fall down ~ the vital little things such as continuous telephone contact to advise us of delivery times. We thoroughly recommend Cloisters to anyone contemplating a stylish new kitchen. We have not found a kitchen anywhere locally that matches the quality or finish that we’ve achieved through Cloisters.

Our new kitchen is absolutely stunning! Thank you all so much.

In Autumn last year I visited the Home Building and Renovating show at Earl’s Court/Olympia specifically to look for a new kitchen. After looking around, it was obvious that Cloisters was the only choice for me as I knew instantly that I could work with them. They were the only company which showed an intelligent interest in and enthusiasm for my brief which, was, to say the least for a modest and ‘compact’ kitchen. This made no difference to their approach. Details of their designs, colours, materials, tiles and appliances and costs were explained to me. I had considered other kitchen suppliers having researched on line and visited several kitchen designers in my home town of Cheltenham and it took me no time at all to decide on Cloisters. This was just the beginning of a positive and enjoyable relationship. The high quality of my new kitchen is exactly as I had imagine and the after sales service, advice, on-time deliveries have been impeccable. Toby also visited my home and suggested some excellent ideas and several amendments. My thanks to Toby and his team at Cloisters for their ideas and professional guidance throughout an almost fraught-free project and I am very happy with my beautiful new kitchen and would recommend Cloisters with no hesitation.

Miggy Loraine – Cheltenham

The kitchen we ordered arrived on time and we are delighted with the result. The design, which I wanted to keep fairly simple, was enhanced by a couple of small additions that transformed it into an expensive looking kitchen. I would have no hesitation in using Cloisters again. Thank you.

Susannah – Wiltshire

We thought it might not be feasible to commission a kitchen design from a business based 300 miles away but, in fact, we now have a beautiful, high quality kitchen, exactly to our own specifcation at very reasonable cost and we are delighted with it. It really was as easy as 123 – at least the design and supply was – we took rather longer than expected to get our new-build ready, but this did not phase you and our kitchen was made ready within just a few weeks of our asking for it. Many thanks to the whole team for your quick responses and professional expertise.

Cloisters Design has transformed my small pokey kitchen into an exquisite and workable space. It wasn’t easy to fit everything I wanted into such a small area but the completed design has exceeded the brief and Mike worked very hard to achieve exactly what I wanted. It proves that Cloisters Design is not just for big expensive kitchens but works perfectly in transforming small spaces. I love it! The work has been done to a very high standard with a minimum of disruption to the rest of the house and the finish is perfect. The whole team has a very professional attitude to work with a meticulous attention to detail. The kitchen now looks bigger and brighter and is a delight to work in. I have no hesitation in using his company again and in recommending Cloisters Design to others.

The kitchen looks great thank you all so much. Just waiting for the cupboard doors. I battle on with the rest of the house and now feel I could build another one without making so many mistakes! Please could you send an itemised bill to the joiner showing the V.A.T where applicable. Thank you again for all your help – I’ll send a photo when its all done.

Having searched fruitlessly in France for a kitchen that offered the design, quality and price we were looking for we were delighted to read about Cloisters Kitchens. They certainly deserve the positive comments made by others. We found Mike extremely helpful and had no trouble ordering from France (even the error we made was easily rectified!). The kitchen looks fabulous in our stone manor and our visitors, both English and French, are very impressed. We have now bought a second kitchen from Cloisters for ‘la maison du gardien’. Many thanks.

Bonne soiree
