Barnes of Ashburton – Testimonial
I have never had a new kitchen and always ‘made do’ with what I inherited so when I decided to take the plunge in my riverside Devon cottage I was pretty nervous.
I spent over two years ‘dithering’ and was terrified of making the wrong decision; of making a large investment and having regrets.
We had so many let-downs from potential suppliers that we met one way or another.
I knew I wanted an AGA so went to Darts Farm and purchased a Classic Cream AGA. They were happy to store it for up to a year so I now knew I had to get my finger out! The lovely lady at Darts Farm recommended Barnes of Ashburton, ‘I’ve heard they are very good’.
We went to Ashburton to look at The Barnes Kitchen Showroom and immediately I LOVED everything I saw. We met a lovely lady called Debbie and were actually treated like potential customers; the feeling was good and I KNEW instinctively we were in the right place.
Debbie travelled for an hour all the way to our home the following week, was very positive and shortly afterwards showed us her ideas. They were PERFECT in every way, practically and aesthetically. Our brief was not an easy one but Debbie incorporated EVERYTHING, even an island on wheels that we had requested and all within budget.
We now have the most beautiful kitchen I have ever seen, attention to detail is faultless and every single member of the Barnes Team are a credit to the company. There was zero mess, never a wrong word, always smiley and polite – I didn’t think companies like this existed anymore. Nothing was too much trouble and the boys worked hard and long hours – all incredibly skilled. The timing was spot on and everyone was offsite on the agreed date.
I now have my dream kitchen which is admired by everyone, totally unique and wonderfully crafted. Looking back I don’t have one single regret and I can honestly say Barnes went above and beyond, lots of little tweaks with no extras added to the bill.
I cannot recommend Barnes highly enough – I’m sure we’ll remain friends, they are just lovely to deal with in every single way.
