About Us

Our small family business has been successfully running for over 20 years now. Based in Sheffield, we take great pride in our business and the many happy customers we have worked with over the years. We have worked with large German manufacturers and in more recent times, created our own bespoke kitchen ranges.

We take great pride in the level of service we offer each and every customer and nothing thrills us more than seeing a beautifully finished kitchen job . We have managed to marry cutting edge design and kitchen products with good old fashioned customer service.

Online Kitchen Specialist

Direct Online Kitchens has evolved to become one of the leading online kitchen specialists in the UK. From a traditional showroom only approach to the current business, our focus has always been on delivering beautifully designed kitchens at affordable prices. We have evolved an online approach that gives the customer all the benefits of a showroom experience without any of the inconvenience or costs associated with it.

E-Design Service

We have a well thought out, tried and tested online design service that has delivered hundreds of beautiful kitchens across the UK over the last 20 years. Our state of the art design software really puts the customer at the heart of the design via the virtual reality designs we produce. Our prompt samples service means you can lay your hands on your chosen doors without the need to visit a showroom.

Our exciting range of kitchens offer a wide selection of door styles and finishes, with a price bracket to match most pockets. We have become an established German kitchen specialist and act as an authorised dealer for the luxury brand, Rational. Speak to us about our design service and let us take away all the confusion and headaches associated with planning and buying a new kitchen.

We have a wide product range and have experience of everything from starter homes through to large apartment complexes. Sometimes we simply supply cabinets and doors, sometimes we do it all. We offer complete flexibility.

How we work

Step 1 - Contact Us

Contact our Remote Kitchen Design Team and find out how we can help you with your new kitchen.

We have developed a set of unique design tools that mean you don't have to come into the showroom at all (unless you want to!). The process is quick and hopefully painless.

Contact us now to get started

Things to consider:

  • An idea of which kitchen range you prefer
  • An idea of the appliances you intend to keep
  • What new appliances you would like to include

Step 2 - Kitchen Design

Our Kitchen Design Lab is home to a talented team of designers, ready to transform your kitchen space into the heart of your home.

Either way we will work with you to establish exactly what you are trying to achieve. At this stage we are focusing on layout rather than worrying too much about colours and finishes.

Find out more about our design process

Things to consider:

  • You will need to measure your kitchen
  • You will need to have a kitchen wishlist
  • Have you thought about how you use your kitchen

Step 3 - Design Review

Once we have your first kitchen design drawn up we share it with you for review. At this stage we can begin to narrow down your choices including door style and colour. There are bound to be layout changes as well.

We share the designs with you via a web page for live reviews or via email attachments. There is no limit to the number of times this step is repeated to achieve the perfect kitchen.

Things to consider:

  • Door style and finish
  • How does the design measure up to the vision
  • Does the design give you enough practical storage

Step 4 - Technical review

Once you are happy with the design we go through the most important step - the technical check. We scrutinise all aspects of the design to ensure there are no nasty surprises when the kitchen is installed.

We pay particular attention to room measurements, any bespoke furniture and the choices you have made in door style and colours.

Things to consider:

  • Final design choices
  • Measurements - have they been checked
  • Delivery - are you going to be ready
  • Fitting - have you got trades lined up

Step 5 - The buying process

Once we have your design signed off we will give you a final price inclusive of all charges. We will load your kitchen onto our online order processing system. You can then make a secure, online payment.

Once confirmed, we put your kitchen into production and liaise with you about delivery and installation dates.

Things to consider:

  • Timescale - when do you want the kitchen to be delivered
  • Appliances - if ordering your own
  • Worktop - if ordering your own
  • Other kitchen extras you may require

Step 6 - Delivery

We have four different kitchen ranges with varying delivery times as standard. We will confirm your delivery date once the kitchen has gone into production.

Typical delivery timescale for the Jigsaw kitchen range is 3-5 days, the Stil kitchen range is 15 working days. The Mahlzeit and Rational ranges take approximately 6 - 8 weeks to arrive from Germany.

Things to consider:

  • Confirm any pre-delivery work will be finished
  • Line up all trades including your kitchen fitter
  • Check for issues with access before the big day

Manufacturing process

Our production team have been manufacturing and supplying kitchens cabinets for over 25 years. The state of the art factory utilises the latest in computer aided design and programming to produce high quality, robust kitchen cabinets to order.

Our standard offer includes colour matched cabinets, supplied rigid built within 15 days from order. All kitchen cabinets are supplied with BLUM drawer systems and hinges with soft close as standard.

All kitchens are made to order on site. Our production team programme each job into the computerised system ensuring all cabinets are accurately cut prior to assembly. All exposed cabinet edges are PVC edged using tough PVC tape. The components parts are then built using cam/dowel construction.

The final stage is a quality check prior to wrapping and delivery.

Product range

We have four tried and tested product ranges to offer you. Our product range covers all the bases from rigid built, no frills trade kitchens through to stunning German engineered luxury.
