Client Testimonials

We pride ourselves on our high-quality workmanship and reliable service, but don’t just take our word for it…
See below a selection of testimonials from some of our satisfied customers.
“Our kitchen has always been the gathering place for family and friends. When we were recommended to Hamilton Stone Design we hoped they could give us something special and different, and they’ve certainly succeeded. We now have a much more open and usable space with an amazing amount of storage. Every last detail was thought through and nothing was too much trouble to accommodate in the design. Thank you to Claire and all the team, the end result speaks for itself.”
“We’re both thrilled with our new kitchen being the delightful centre of our home. Importantly for us, we are equally happy with the end to end experience: insightful design consultations with Claire, a value for money solution, timely high-quality installation and overall positive can-do approach throughout.”
“Every time we walk into our kitchen we smile. We spoke to various companies when looking to design our new kitchen but Claire and Danny were the only ones who understood what we wanted and worked out a way to fit everything in. The space that has been created is beautiful and fits in perfectly with the rest of our house. The main feature being our range cooker and with the handmade surround it really stands out. Alongside with our accompanying utility room, with its open shelving and laundry rack, the kitchen not only looks stunning but has been designed with practicality in mind too. It really has become the feature room of our home.”
“We are very pleased with our new kitchen. It looks amazing, the quality is brilliant and everything is in the right place. Claire and the team offer a fantastic service from design to fitting and they were all so dedicated to making sure we had our dream kitchen. We feel we have that now and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. We highly recommend Hamilton Stone Designs.”
“Bang on trend. I feel Hamilton Stone has created my dream space that wouldn’t be out of place in any high end glossy magazine. Having the ability to have any colour for the units has really allowed us to create a real bespoke look! We are so very pleased and cannot wait to start entertaining!”
“Whenever I enter my stunning new kitchen I get a sense of peace and it has a real understated elegance to it. The soft tones and light quartz really makes the space feel so much bigger! I feel Hamilton Stone Design has made the most of every inch of space useable to give me a real functional and aesthetically pleasing kitchen. Everything is very solid, and it feels like it will last a lifetime.”
“Right from the beginning, when visiting Hamilton Stone Designs beautiful showroom and meeting Claire, we knew we were going to get a stunning, stylish kitchen that made the most of the space. Although small, our kitchen delivers so much storage due to Claire’s clever design; the quality and workmanship is beautiful and we couldn’t be happier.
Claire and her team are brilliant and make the whole process, from design to installation, stress free and enjoyable. We highly recommend them.”
“We are delighted with our new kitchen and with Claire and the Hamilton Stone team right through from the planning to the fitting; Claire and Danny with their ideas and suggestions, Marco with the fitting and the rest of the team in the background. We would not hesitate in recommending Hamilton Stone Design”
We bought a new build property with a Hamilton Stone Design kitchen installed in 2017. The kitchen was one of the key attractions to us purchasing the property. Everyone that has visited the house since then have commented on how great the kitchen looks and the service we have received couldn’t have been better. Two years later and after a lot of use the kitchen still looks and feels brand new which is a testament to the quality of the workmanship involved. We look forward to many more years of service and when the time comes for a replacement Hamilton Stone Design will be the first company we will look to. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
We built an extension, which meant we had plenty of time to plan our new kitchen.  We had a design in mind, but were struggling to find a kitchen company that we were fully happy with.  After a recommendation, we talked to Hamilton Stone who stood out immediately.  Everyone in the team was helpful and friendly.  Nothing was too much trouble.

Claire’s expertise together with the visuals produced by her team helped us build on our initial design to create a kitchen we love. Claire went that extra mile to help us choose what we wanted.  She listened, gave ideas and when we had formulated our thoughts provided solutions. We love the corner cupboard she suggested.  It is so practical and much better than that we had previously and combined with the pull-out cupboard makes excellent larder space.

Claire made our breakfast bar a real feature by working with Earthy Timber and found us a very large piece of granite for our Island, which other kitchen companies said couldn’t be done.

Even now, a year later, when we enter our kitchen each morning we pinch ourselves and think how lucky we are.  Thank you Hamilton Stone!

“The Hamilton Stone Design experience has been a pleasure from planning to completion. As part of a large building project, with the inevitable issues that arise when coordinating with various contractors, Claire was unflappable. Claire, Danny, Sam and Will and his fitting team all communicated brilliantly and provided great suggestions for our requests/alterations. It makes me smile every time I walk into our new kitchen and I’ve already recommended Hamilton Stone Design to a number of friends.”
“After going through 3 or 4 local Kitchen companies we were still unsure about the design for our dream Kitchen, we were then recommended to Hamilton Stone Design by a local builder. Me and my partner met Claire at her showroom on Morehouse Farm and straight away had a good vibe as the showroom was stunning and full of incredible Kitchens. We explained to Claire what we wanted from our Kitchen and described the experiences we have had with other companies. It was at this point we knew we had found the right company as her design ideas and the products she had on offer are first class and a league above similar local companies. This professionalism was carried out right through to the end, and the completion of the installation. We are now enjoying our dream Kitchen and wouldn’t hesitate to return to Hamilton Stone Design when we take on our next project in a few years time.”

“Working with Claire was so easy and straightforward. She really understood what we wanted to achieve and turned our dream into reality! She managed to accommodate all our requests, even the tricky ones, and has turned our kitchen from a boring functional space into one with real wow factor which perfectly suits us and our lifestyle.”
“We love our kitchen. It has plenty of cupboard space and worktop space which was a priority for us. Claire managed to incorporate into our kitchen everything on our wish list (and it was a long list). She also advised us on things we didn’t know we wanted but that have been invaluable. We are so pleased with our spacious, modern yet classic/contemporary kitchen and love the wooden breakfast bar which was all her idea!
We upgraded to Quartz worktop in the utility room and are so pleased we did as our utility room looks as stylish and is as hardworking as our kitchen.”
“I still have to pinch myself when I walk into my beautiful kitchen! Claire completely understood the brief and created an elegant, timeless kitchen which is more “country house” than “farm house”. Our old awkward corners and problem areas have now become beautiful, light-filled spaces. A huge corner larder cupboard replaces our old pantry, a bespoke dresser invisibly incorporates the fridge and freezer and the magnificent chimney breast over the AGA presides over the room. The utility room is the perfect partner to the kitchen, with the same elegant look, creating a seamless flow between the two rooms. We could not be happier.”
We’re delighted with our new kitchen. It’s large, integrated with a dining area and is the very high quality we expected. Having visited Hamilton Stone largely due to strong word-of-mouth recommendations, our initial perception was confirmed from the outset and in subsequent contacts with Claire and her colleagues through design, confirmation and installation. Part of a four-month extension and reconfiguration project, the two-week kitchen installation came towards the end, exactly as agreed. Kevin’s 30 years of experience proved a godsend and the inevitable bits of snagging have been undertaken promptly and professionally. So, we had the kitchen ‘of our dreams’ ready for our family Christmas meal, with the ten courses shared between our three children and their partners (plus a six-month granddaughter who will, eventually, perhaps make her own contribution!). They all loved it, as have various visitors – a view entirely uninfluenced by the new wine chiller and a large red wine rack! Very many thanks to Claire and all at Hamilton Stone.

From start to finish Hamilton Stone Design were totally amazing. Claire was excellent, we had a small issue with the builder and a pipe which Claire solved by being very strong but polite, needless to say the issue solved straight away. The kitchen fitter arrived on time every morning and again was great and very polite. We hope to never have a need for a new kitchen again but if we ever do Hamilton Stone would be doing it! Please keep up the fantastic work Claire and team, we are totally chuffed to bits with our super slick smart kitchen. Thank again!

I love…love…love my new kitchen. Every day it gives me pleasure and I delight in the comments it receives.

I knew the very second that I walked into Hamilton Stone’s showroom I would find the kitchen I had been looking for. The added bonus was to meet and talk to the creative team who so expertly interpreted what I had in my head…and then enhance my wish list.

From taps to door knobs…to the sink, to the most beautiful worktop. They are very clever at Hamilton Stone…from start to finish.

“We had an interesting space to fill and Claire was able to meet our brief brilliantly, coming up with the perfect design for us. From start to finish nothing was too much trouble for Claire as we changed and altered the plan for the kitchen until we both got it absolutely perfect for our needs. Whenever I phoned Claire or turned up at the showroom Claire was always very welcoming and extremely helpful with ideas and amendments, she came up with ideas we hadn’t thought of and worked with us until the kitchen had been expertly installed by Will. Claire’s team are all extremely friendly, professional and they really do go the extra mile for their customers and I can’t recommend Hamilton Stone Design and Claire highly enough.”
“Claire and the team at Hamilton did a wonderful job from the initial design consultations to the above and beyond finishing touches to our wonderful new kitchen. Two rooms became one fantastic bright space that we love to spend time in, not just cooking. Nothing was too much trouble for Claire and the team and they were happy to respond to our last minute changes.”
“After visiting other show rooms and being given designs identical to our current layout we were about to forget the idea of having a new kitchen. Claire at Hamilton Stone Designs made the whole kitchen design, ordering and installation service a pleasurable experience. Claire understood the brief and created the perfect kitchen for us. She came up with some amazing ideas and solutions and I can honestly say that having two dishwashers has changed my life.”
“We absolutely love our new kitchen and spend a lot more time as a family in it. Claire somehow managed to transform the vision I had in my head into reality. Nothing was too much trouble and she willingly incorporated my many changes along with way. Her and all her team were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much trouble and the whole process was handled beautifully. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
“Our kitchen before wasn’t old, and most people couldn’t understand why I wanted to change it. But whilst it looked ok, it wasn’t functional. Claire has changed all that and designed a kitchen that everyday I love but more importantly – it works! Right from the beginning, she listened to what I wanted, suggested things she thought would work and came up with a kitchen that for me, is pretty perfect. Then each and everyone of the team at Hamilton Stone Design made the experience stress free.
The island has become a place where the family gather and where we socialise with our friends. If a kitchen can change and improve how a family lives then this kitchen certainly fits that description.
It’s silly things which I appreciate, like my induction hob which is so easy to keep clean, the large pull out bins that I can put recycling in, and the eye level slide and hide oven which is user friendly, the large drawers where utensils and cutlery fit in perfectly, the pull out larder where I can reach everything, the list goes on!
I have no hesitation in recommending them and if I ever move home, then I know they will be fitting my next kitchen!”
From our first call at all your showroom onwards we found the people at Hamilton Stone Design to be very friendly, helpful and collaborative; we appreciated lots of helpful advice but no hard sell. Meanwhile, all the contractors involved with the project were both very professional and a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hamilton Stone Design to anyone looking for design and installation of a quality kitchen at a fair price
Chris and Ann
Thank you so much to all the Hamilton Stone team. We absolutely love our new kitchen. The design works perfectly and it’s a joy to work in. It really is our dream kitchen. Claire’s design advice and experience was invaluable. The communication with the builders and the installation was great and went very smoothly. The support with any snags or queries has also been fantastic. We are extremely pleased we chose Hamilton Stone and very highly recommend them. The new kitchen has already received many compliments and it’s wonderful enjoying the new space with family and friends.
Vanessa and Neil
From the moment we saw a Hamilton Stone Design kitchen we knew we had to have one.  We loved the designs and the colour palette  they offered.  We thought we had a good idea on what we wanted from the kitchen, however this was not the case and we had many revisions.  Claire and her team accommodated all our changes with a smile and patience and we now have the kitchen we have always wanted.

Claire and her team were professional and gave guidance through out the design, offering great advice on the selection of storage types, materials and appliances.

We are particularly pleased, Claire convinced us to have an Induction hob over gas, as cooking is fast and the cleaning is simple : no more scrubbing!

The kitchen has transformed our life as a family and now is truly the heart of the home, as Claire promised.
