    "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. Doug and Karen Khandallah, Wellington

    "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."
