    "Zenith Kitchens Onehunga changed their name on 04 Dec 2012

    They are currently trading as LIFESTYLE KITCHENS - and DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

    Our kitchen was ordered in October 2014 and it has been a hard slog getting anything done. IT IS STILL NOT COMPLETE (23/07/15) and we expect it would take years for them to complete the job.. but only if you make it your life's work to stay in communication.
    And the communication from them is terrible! Most of it is excuses (or lies) and scheduling is non-existent here (unless you call notifying you the day before, a 'plan')

    Whenever Peter says "I've got that at the painters" or it's "in the warehouse" or "it'll be ready next week" etc... ask for their name and CALL THEM or visit the warehouse.. truly you will be impressed at the volume of BS from this outfit.

    He made our kitchen with NO CUTLERY DRAWER!!! (It was in the plan).


    What kitchen maker who's apparently been making kitchens and joinery for years... skips details like this.

    It would be like a bathroom designer forgetting to leave space in the bathroom, for THE TOILET.

    Other things that have lacked are;

    1.the brand new dishwasher drawer doesn't fit,

    2. the extractor fan unit was made not to fit our purchased extractor fan (we gave him the model), AND He installed it too low to the stove top (the plan shows the correct height),

    3. there was no drawer under the oven AS PLANNED,

    4. we were promised full installation by the end of november - come January we had only carcasses installed - meaning we had NO KITCHEN for months,

    5. multiple cupboard doors were made the wrong size and door and end panels for made without the correct detailing as prescribed in the plan.

    plus way more... but that would be boring for you.

    This guy has been in to measure again and again and again. During work hours.

    We've had to take so much unpaid time off work thanks to their DIS-organisation and often ... get this... NOBODY TURNS UP.

    When they do, it's late. And IF they do, you better keep your eye on them. One time, after keeping me from getting to work on time - an employee arrived late at 8:30am and when I returned at 1pm - he had hinged two doors together (four screws in total)... yup. that was the extent of his four hours in my home up to that point. What had he done until then? Your guess is as good as mine. But if they promise that something will be done - you can bet that not even half of it will. (underline that last sentance.)

    Trust me, if you speak with the CORRECT references, you'll hear plenty about manufacturing and installation issues with many (here I want to say ALL) customers.

    make no mistake, use this company and prepare to go to WAR for what you paid for.

    "I had my kitchen renovation done and worked closely with Peter on design and programme. I have to say I am glad I did, Zenith went out of their way to assist and help in every aspect and offer advice where needed. Their workmanship is top notch and Lance their installer is an old school tradesman who takes pride in what he does.

    I would strongly recommend Zenith to potential people looking for a new kitchen.

    Thanks Zenith

    Mark "

    "Good company to work with. Peter listened to what we were after, and Finau did a great job with installation (a perfectionist if ever i saw one!). Slight delay with kitchen installation, though Saturdays were worked to get us functional and completed. A bit of following up, but emails and phone calls were always replied to. Love our kitchen, thanks Zenith!"

    "Very easy Company to work with that actually did what they said they would. They were on time, kept me up to date with the job and suggested improvements mid stream. Very reasonably priced, flexible and a pleasure to work with. "

    "Thanks Glenn and the Zenith team. I had my kitchen installed early this year and am so pleased. I was a bit nervous at the thought of having my house pulled apart getting ready for the new kitchen but Glenn arranged it all and it was stress free.

    Excelent job, Thanks

    "We used Zenith to design, manufacture and install our new kitchen. The design was exactly what we were looking for, right down to the finer detail that we would have never thought of. The end product is better than we ever imagined and was exactly as promised.

    Pete and his team worked in well with our buildiers ensuring that the kitchen was installed when planned. We were on a tight deadline so we could be in by Xmas. The team ensured that there were no hold ups or stress involved.

    Great value for money!"

    "Can\'t rate this company highly enough. I was pretty apprehensive about installing a new kitchen mainly because of our family\'s busy lifestyle. Peter and his team took this into account from day one and fitted in appointments to suit us. Thanks so much Peter for turning (what I thought) a stressful experience into a \'walk in the park\'. I have a beautiful kitchen as a end result and am over the moon. Would definately be recommending you, all the very best."

    "A one day job to install a kitchen took 5 months. Initially poor workmanship, very poor communication and time to complete the job entirely unacceptable. Just Dont Use Them. Hopeless company."

    "We had to chase everything up the whole way which was very frustrating considering Zenith Kitchens were the project managers. We have had to fix up the final product ourselves and at our expense."
