    "Wright Kitchens have been a pleasure to deal with. Mel transformed my ideas and added her own thoughts and suggestions to make our new kitchen nothing less than stunning. We are so proud of it. All our other tradespeople have been super impressed and even taken photos of the kitchen to show their other clients. Our builder commented on the high quality of cabinetry compared to other options he had dealt with. Mel's installation crew were always articulate and professional and in particular I enjoyed the cheery disposition of Tony who always had a song or tune to hum :-)

    As with all projects tweaks were required and Wright Kitchens have been fantastic in accommodating my preferences. Nothing was too much trouble and I appreciated their attention to detail on the smallest things.

    Thank you Mel and Wright Kitchens for our beautiful kitchen and the positive experience we have had working with you all.

    "The whole process of renovating my kitchen was undertaken by Wright Kitchens & Cabinetry Limited. Mel Wright organised all the trades people and I didn't have to worry about anything. My renovation involved builders, electricians, plumbers, flooring, and of course the amazing team from Wrights Kitchens. My new kitchen and pantry turned out exactly like I imagined and I would highly recommend this company. They also renovated my laundry, and did a fabulous job."

    "Mel and the team at Wright's Kitchens were wonderful!

    Our job was reasonably small- a scullery off a kitchen, but Mel was very helpful and offered great advice. The planning was stress-free and all the details taken care of. Communication was good and people turned up when they were meant to! The tradie that installed the joinery was friendly, professional, tidy and did a great job.

    All in all, a great experience!"

    "We engaged the services of Wright Kitchens to do a refurbishment on our tired, dated kitchen. From the start Mel was very helpful and gave us some great advice. Installation was done on time and Mel and the team went above and beyond to ensure that the kitchen was installed correctly after they discovered the previous kitchen was slightly out. They did some long hours including a Saturday to have the kitchen finished before Christmas. Mel also arranged all the tradies required and organised for them to be on site when required, which was a huge help so we didn't need to take time off work. The team were very clean and tidied up each day when they had finished. We have been so thrilled with the huge change that the refurb has made to our kitchen and our home, people that see it can't believe that it is not a new kitchen. It is certainly better than we imagined and great value for money compared to a new kitchen. We would have no hesitation in recommending Wright Kitchens."

    "Mel and her team are the best! Professional yet extremely personable. From first contact to completion I knew we had made the right choice with Wright Kitchens! They went above and beyond when we had to reschedule installation due to complications from our end and the end result is so much better than I ever imagined. The tradies that Mel organised were also incredible. It can be hard to organise trades when you don't know who is trustworthy so Mel taking care of this took all the stress out.

    If you want a top quality, beautiful and affordable kitchen then I would highly recommend Wright Kitchens any day.

    "We were really impressed with the care and attention to detail from the Wright Kitchen team from the moment we asked for a quote and suggestions for our kitchen refurbishment. Mel is a patient attentive listener, backed by professionals who really understand their craft. Tony created a wider bench to blend and join invisibly our original bench. Brady's eye for detail and work ethic ensured that we were not only satisfied but went well and truly above the standard we had expected. We are absolutely delighted with our soft close drawers and Mels suggested warm white laminate which positively has lifted our kitchen appearance to timeless elegance. We would have no hesitation in recommending Wrights Kitchen and Cabinetry and have further work to be completed in our home in the new year by this company."

    "We would happily recommend Wright Kitchens and Cabinetry to anyone.

    Our project was to replace an early 1990s U-shaped kitchen to better utilise the small space available and bring it into the 21st century.

    We chose Wright Kitchens from a shortlist of 4 kitchen designers / installers. Our selection process was based on the following criteria:
    a) the ability to listen and understand what our needs were.
    b) the quality of ideas put forward to solve the specific issues we raised e.g. how best to utilise corner spaces.

    c) awareness of different product options and flexibility and willingness to work through design variations.

    d) price and delivery timing.

    Two of the shortlisted firms were close (2 way behind) but Wright Kitchens scored highest on each and every one of our criteria.

    Having chosen Wright Kitchens we were not disappointed.

    Mel worked with us to finalise the design, including a site visit with Stu to talk through the details. Through this process we recognised the depth of knowledge and experience that comes from a firm that not only designs, but also manufactures the kitchen cabinetry in house and installs the kitchens with their own team.

    Ripping out and installing a new kitchen is not for the faint hearted – it is a major undertaking and is inevitably disruptive.

    The Wright Kitchens on site team of installers were all professional and polite in their manner and clearly took pride in their work. They worked around other tradies (builder, electrician and plumber) without problem and simply got on with the work required while trying to minimise disruption to us.

    With any major project a few problems can be expected (e.g. walls not being square or late response by stone benchtop supplier) but all were addressed calmly by Mel who kept us informed and the team maintained the momentum to get the kitchen completed as quickly as possible.

    The end result exceeds all our expectations.

    - The kitchen design is working for us and we would not change any aspect of it.

    - The quality of the kitchen cabinetry and finish is excellent (our other tradies all commented on this).

    - The overall price was as per the quote with no disputes.

    Thank you Mel, Stu and the Wright Kitchens Team.

    "My 28 year old kitchen was well past its best but I wasn't wanting a complete refit. Mel was more than happy at advising for a reface. Her suggestions were perfect and I found Brady and his team to have a great work ethic and finished the instal to a high standard. I am very happy with my updated kitchen and highly recommend Wright Kitchens. Thank you Mel, Stu and the team."

    "We employed Wright Kitchens to design, make and install a new kitchen with full project management of the process � never again! They advertise custom made kitchens that you don�t have to stress or worry about as �Stu and Mel Wright offer a complete project management service to ensure your job runs smoothly throughout the whole process�. They also state in their quote �if it�s not good enough to be in our house it won�t be in yours�. After 10 very long weeks of limited progress we were getting pretty fed up. It has now been 14 weeks since our old kitchen was removed and Wright Kitchens have still not completed the job. We haven�t heard from them in almost two weeks so can only assume they have walked off the job again, leaving us in a position where we have had to organise completion of the kitchen ourselves. Outlined below are the main issues we encountered

    * Plans - with hindsight, we realise that there should have been a process where Wright Kitchens went through the plans with us, explaining the design and measurements of every component to ensure we understood and were happy with what they had designed for our home. This never happened and caused us endless stress. We had to ask for a copy of the plans and only received these on the day they removed our original kitchen. We never had accurate or complete plans throughout the process with Mel Wright claiming the errors were due to the computer and not to worry. It didn�t inspire confidence and we had no idea just what we were going to get!

    * Payment - we paid 50% deposit then an additional 45% for delivery of the new cabinetry to our property, as per their contract. Mel Wright advised they were delivering half the cabinets but she got very nasty when we said we�d pay half of the 45% with the balance paid when we have all the cabinets onsite. She even stated they would dump the cabinets in our lounge! She knew this was our living area and temporary kitchen and that we have young children. We had no choice but to pay the full 45% to continue. We only received the remaining cabinetry 11 � weeks in. We feel that a 95% payment before anything is installed is absurd and left us in a position where we were at the mercy of Wright Kitchens and they had complete control of our kitchen.

    * Intimidating, aggressive and threatening communication � due to the lack of agreed plans, Wright Kitchens originally installed our overhead cabinets at 172cm from the floor, above our head height! Stu and Mel Wright claimed this was their �standard height� and when they came onsite they went berserk at my wife, calling her names, claiming they don�t offer a project management service and stating that they are doing us a favour by doing our kitchen. They had all sorts of excuses for the issues we had encountered up to that point, blaming us for these. Not once have they acknowledged or apologised for the way they spoke to us or for any of the ongoing issues we have encountered. Since then, they walked off the job as they didn�t like us (they liked us enough to take $22,500 of our money!) then agreed to come back if we weren�t at our property. Mel Wright sent us emails stating that we had to be offsite and if we were at home they would not stay and would only return when we weren�t at home. Mel Wright also stated that they only wanted us to contact them with positive comments.

    * Mel Wright recommended we use Seratone as a splashback behind our hobs as glass would be very expensive (according to her). After looking into Seratone colour options we checked with Wright Kitchens several times that they would have enough clearance from the Seratone to the hobs and Mel Wright assured us every time that all would be fine. Wright Kitchens were going to install the Seratone with insufficient clearance and against Seratone compliance! This would have left us in a position where an insurance claim could have been declined due to their incompetence and lack of care. Seratone compliance is a minimum of 100mm from the edge of the nearest element to the Seratone � they were going to install at 75mm.

    * Design/installation flaws � cupboard doors banging each other and the wall, several shelves that wobble and don�t sit level on the shelf supports, a shelf in the pantry cupboard has been cut too small and moves, drawers and cupboard doors don�t line up, the upper cupboards were meant to be the same size on both sides of the room but there are huge size differences, damage to a shelf that has been painted over, insufficient space above the fridge with it being a very tight fit, scratches on the front of a cupboard door, cupboard doors opening the wrong direction.

    * There has been no level of care as we had to point out what needs done/fixed in our kitchen. For example, as part of the demolition process a skirting board was removed. This had to be replaced before the flooring could go down. Mel Wright stated in an email that it would be done but three weeks later we were told we had to arrange a builder to do it. We had to get a plasterer three separate times due to building work being incomplete. We had to organise our own plasterer for 2 of these occasions as the plasterer Wright Kitchens uses didn�t like my wife, despite the fact she never spoke to him!

    In summary, Wright Kitchens created a great deal of stress. Mel Wright was consistently unreliable stating that she would send plans/information later that day/tomorrow - we were still waiting over a week later on a few occasions despite chasing up and she frequently contradicted herself in email communications. We would never recommend them or wish for the stress and worry we suffered on anyone else. We don�t feel they fulfilled their obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act. We have no doubt Mel Wright will respond but we have been bullied, threatened and intimidated for long enough and don�t want anyone else to go through what we did.

    "Mel, Stu and their team of professional workers have made the renovation of our kitchen a pleasure. The advice, and workmanship has been excellent from start to finish. We’ve changed our plans as the work evolved, everything we wanted has been incorporated, with some lovely finishing touches. The co-ordination of tradesmen was perfect, the plumber and electrician both completed high standard work. All the workers in and out of our home over this time were a pleasure to deal with. They all impressed us with their high standards of work and the way they fitted in to suit us, and cleaned up any mess at the end of every day. On two occasions they picked up a small flaw in some woodwork, which we wouldn’t have noticed, and refused to install it until it was perfect.I couldnt recommend this firm highly enough, from design to completion the whole process was of the highest standards, they exceeded our expectations."

    "Stu, Mel and the rest of the Wright team did a wonderful job on our kitchen. From Stu & Mel's first visit, I already felt that they treated our kitchen as their own. They were both friendly, had a lot of creative and practical ideas, and found solutions to challenges we had along the way. They made things easier for me by finding me a builder to do the initial work on our kitchen, just when I can't find one who can do the work immediately. With my numerous questions, suggestions and changes in mind, Mel, her staff Nikita and their tradesman Tony were always there to answer my texts, emails or discuss them with me on the phone. Mel made sure I understood our timetable well so I can plan work with other tradies. She made sure that the kitchen was delivered on time as we agreed --- and they did; even earlier! The cabinets they made were absolutely fabulous, perfectly installed and used high quality materials. I have put a lot of research in planning our kitchen and I know great workmanship when I see one. What still amazes me is that they gave me one of the lowest quotes for almost the same design and materials among other kitchen renovation specialists I talked with. And that includes a couple of quotes from Mitre10! Friends have been asking me about the makers of our beautiful kitchen and I only have good words to tell them. Thanks Wright Kitchens! Keep up the good work."

    "“An uncompromising commitment to quality”
    Wright Kitchens designed, built and installed the kitchen of our dreams. Everyone who has subsequently seen it has been blown away by the innovative aspects embodied in its design and construction. This did not happen by accident.
    The design process started with a picture from House and Garden magazine. Mel took that and through an iterative consultative process and lots of patience, produced a plan that met our demanding standards.
    Stu and his team at the factory, using computer driven cutting processes, built and assembled the kitchen in the factory so we could see it and make and adjustments before it went to the paint shop. Again this gave us, as the client, the assurance that all was on track.

    Stu and his team’s focus on precision during the installation had to be seen to be believed. The combined use of lasers, visual inspection and endless tweaking produced a kitchen that exceeded our already high expectations.

    Stu and Mel left no stone unturned in their efforts to deliver us the highest quality kitchen. We can’t speak highly enough of them. They are so professional, yet down to earth nice people.

    "I engaged the services of Wright Kitchens based on the excellent reviews I had seen on the "No Cowboys" website. The job involved a full renovation of my kitchen and small laundry area off the kitchen, as well as painting of the dining/lounge area and the dark wooden ceiling beams in all these areas. In addition, Wright Kitchens agreed to organise a company to repaint all the internal doors in my home. My first contact was with Mel Wright in January 2017. I explained that I was looking for a full project management service, with Wright Kitchens coordinating the contractors, as I believed the whole process would run more smoothly this way. Based on the excellent reviews this company has received from past clients, I had no reason to be concerned that they would engage the services of tradesmen who would let them down. I was sadly mistaken. The builder, who engaged the services of a painting company, was my biggest problem throughout the renovation process which commenced in May 2017 and was finally completed in November 2017. Whilst I have no complaints about the smooth process of the actual kitchen installation and the quality of the cabinetry, the work being carried-out by both the builder and the painting company was absolutely key to the finished product and this was where the whole process fell down. The builder was completely unreliable, never turned-up when he said he was going to and would leave work unfinished, taking an unacceptable length of time to come back and complete. The painting company he engaged were completely unprofessional, the quality of their work was average at very best and, on two occasions, they did not secure my property by leaving windows wide open when finishing for the day. Whilst these people were not employees of Wright Kitchens, nethertheless, their services were engaged directly or indirectly by Wrights as project managers and were therefore their responsibility. I was in constant contact with Mel as issue after issue arose but unfortunately problems continued to arise throughout the process. For this reason I have to take my entire experience into consideration when arriving at my ratings. On the plus side, communication with Mel Wright was excellent and I have absolutely no complaints in that area. However, in view of problems that continued to arise throughout the renovation, the length of time the renovation took to complete (6 months) and the stress I endured throughout the entire process, regrettably I would not be able to recommend Wright Kitchens to anyone undertaking a complete kitchen renovation and looking for a full project management service."
    Mel Wright responded:
    "Hi Shirley, I am sorry that you feel we have not provided you with the best service. As you mentioned above, the builder and the builder's painter were unreliable and unprofessional. Unfortunately they were not communicating honestly with me either, as you are aware, so you can rest assured we are not using them anymore! We feel the team at Wright Kitchens went out of our way to remedy the situation as best that I could, and provide you with excellent service on our part, so we are saddened to have received such a low rating. I have already contacted you directly about this issue as you know, however if there is anything else we can do for you, please let us know. Kind regards, Mel Wright. "

    "Wow what can I say - we asked Wright Kitchens for a quote based on their outstanding feedback on No Cowboys as we had been mucked around by other builders. I teach full time and was unable to get time off to be home to meet Mel regarding our 13 kitchen drawers & pantry door which were in a sorry state with several drawer fronts that had fallen or were loose and the pantry door needed to be re hung. Nikita took my details and we arranged a meeting outside my teaching hours however Mel wasn't able to make it. Nikita arranged for Mel to come out to meet us again after hours which was fantastic for us! Mel made it all seem easily do-able and provided us with a very reasonable quote soon after - we took the option to upgrade to soft close drawers - love love love them! We booked in a day that I was home - Brady was running a bit late however the courtesy call from Nikita was great which meant I knew exactly what was happening. Brady arrived and set about transform our drawers as well as checking out the pantry door. The hinges needed replacing so he took it back to get new heavy duty ones fitted for us (we were very happy to pay the small extra charge). I was kept updated the whole time, he cleaned up everything afterwards (including vacuuming) and did an outstanding job in a very timely way. One of the drawers needed an adjustment so he came back the next day to fit it then checked our other cupboard doors to make sure the hinges were adjusted correctly as well as putting little plastic dots inside the doors to stop them banging. We are thrilled with the result - we feel as though we have a new kitchen and it inspired me to so a spring clean of the contents before putting anything back in the new drawers. Everyone I dealt with or spoke to from Wright Kitchens went above and beyond the call of duty - no job is too small for them. Their excellent rating on this website is well deserved - thank you once again for the wonderful job you did :-)"

    "Melanie and her team are a first rate business who delivers a good product at a very competitive price. They had a job in installing some bedroom joinery for us, didn't get it quite right the first time so returned with a modified panel straightaway and did an excellent job. I have already recommended them to a friend who has had a visit already from Mel. "

    "‘Passion for their craftsmanship’
    Wright Kitchens Ltd were recommended to us by Quality NZ Homes who were building our home for us in Silverstream.

    We found the process of styling our kitchen with Stu and Mel a good experience. They are easy to deal with, they listen to what your requirements are, and invite you to view examples of products and processes in their factory so you can make your choices. Choosing finishes for the cabinetry, types of drawers/cupboards, even handles, can be daunting to start with, but Stu was able to discuss at length and provide options. They also arrange visits to granite/caesarstone showrooms for benchtops/islands and accompany you there if required.

    We had a strong concept from the start on what we wanted for our kitchen, and being able to work smoothly with Stu and Mel meant the end result is fabulous. What we really valued from Wright Kitchens was their absolute commitment to quality – they really take pride in their workmanship and it shows in the finished product. We have had numerous compliments on the kitchen.

    "I found Wright kitchens on No Cowboys. I think my email told them, having spoken to three other places (1 of whom never got back to us, 1 of whom didn't listen to a single word we said, and 1 of whom told us about all the things we couldn't have) that we were contacting them as a last resort, before giving up entirely on having a new kitchen. And we weren't actually joking!!

    Stu came over quick smart and listened to our requirements. He had some great ideas and we now have a beautiful (beautiful!!) kitchen. Thanks too to Dale for his attention to detail and quality workmanship.  

    I am beginning to think they may actually be vampires because I don't think Mel actually sleeps!!! She was always super responsive and uber helpful around any email or text I sent. We did have some issues around sourcing our benchtop but we got there in the end, and the top we have now is lovely.

    Really really happy with Wright Kitchens, who we can highly recommend - and have done to many already. Cheers guys :)

    "If my wife and I could give more than 100% we would. The service was absolutely amazing. Stu learnt a lot from his dad in terms of quality of work. Stu is so passionate about what he does and you see this in the communication but most importantly in the quality of work him and his men completed. Customer service A++++ The wardrobe in our building is fantastic and beautiful! They also did the design and worked with us to get what we wanted. Everyone we've shown pictures to are very impressed and a little envious. Stu delivers what he promises. Mel was so patient with us and always responded to our emails or calls - she managed things like clockwork. We are the type of people that always think twice before recommending someone, but we have no qualms in recommending Wright Kitchens & Cabinetry to everyone. Thanks Stu and Mel for the best service we've received....ever."

    "I can't recommend Wright Kitchens enough. We have a small kitchen and didn't have a very big budget and I had intended to get a kitchen from Mitre 10 or Bunnings. However I stumbled across the positive reviews on the No Cowboys website and I decided to get a quote. The quote for a installed custom made kitchen was not much more than we would have paid at Mitre 10 or Bunnings so we decided to go ahead.

    Wright Kitchens build your kitchen in their factory - and we were able to visit the factory in Upper Hutt to see it - and then they installed the vast majority of the kitchen within a day so you don't have to be without a kitchen for an extended period of time. They also organised the plumber and electrician and the whole process was so easy and stress free. Also, Stu Wright did a great job designing our kitchen. He had some great ideas - things we would have never thought of - and the kitchen just 'flows' so much better. Even though we have loads more storage in our kitchen everyone comments about how much bigger our kitchen looks now - which is all thanks to Stu's design. We also got the bench tops a couple of inches higher than standard for my tall husband at no extra cost.

    However the best bit about Wright Kitchens is their amazing customer service. Mel and Stu Wright were a delight to deal with. I remember that at 8:45am on the morning of the installation I got a call from Mel. My first thought was that she was calling to tell me that they were postponing the installation. However she was calling to apologise because Stu and his team were running 15 minutes late. You really feel that Mel and Stu want to do the best possible job that they can.

    We absolutely love our new kitchen and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Wright Kitchens to anyone.
