Thank You Card
to say a big thank you for all you did in updating our bathroom so nicely recently. We love it now and wish we had asked
you to do it sooner. We are still very happy with our kitchen too.
Thanks also for sorting out the cold water
problem so promptly, it's fine now, you were right in saying it was probably caused by the electrics being turned off
for a short time, just enough to throw out the digital timer.
So thanks for everything, we will certainly
give your number to anyone who wants any jobs done in kitchens or bathrooms. You are a very good worker.
good wishes for the future and may IKD continue with plenty of work until you retire (some years yet....sorry!), unless of
course you come up with the lottery. We will remember you if we get the big win.
Best regards and thanks
again for everything.
Mr & Mrs Denny, Kettering
Dear Ian and
knowing you for nearly 20 years, and numerous projects undertaken in our home, we were once again delighted with your care
and attention to detail. We are over the moon with our shower room refurbishment; you've done us proud again, and
it's great and refreshing to know that your standards haven't changed.
It was lovely to see you again
Ian, and we will be touch when we have saved the pennies for a new kitchen refurb'.
Many thanks once again.
Mr & Mrs Wright, Rushden
thanks, the handles have arrived safely and we are very pleased as they match very closely to the existing handles.
I would also like to say thank you for the excellent service, I would certainly use your company again and be
pleased to recommend it to others.

Facebook Wall Post Just
been to see a very good client of mine with Ian from IKD Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms, I was most impressed with how
he interacted with the client, approaches it in exactly the same way I do!!!! Courteous, respectful and no waffle.

Thank You Card
Ian & Karan,
Thank you for my lovely new kitchen.
I am pleased with the appliances which Ian chose;
even the "Jingle Bells" singing washing machine!
Only one problem. I used to blame the old kitchen
when my cakes did not turn out like on the front of this card, I now have to admit it was the cook all along!
you once again from a very pleased customer.
Mr & Mrs Tubb, Rothwell
We had our
kitchen fitted by IKD, and are very pleased with it.
The old kitchen was efficiently manouvered (with the minimum
of mess) and the old stuff taken away. The skilled fitters were pleasant, well-mannered and cleared up each day
as far as possible. There was no smoking, no tramping through the house, and a radio so quiet I hardly knew it was there.
Although not the dearest, the units are of a good standard and have been meticulously fitted. From the
start IKD has listened to what we wanted and has provided it with no hard sell or hidden extras.
Mr Richardson, Kettering
Dear Ian &
May I say how pleased we are with the quality of workmanship and standard of service provided by your
company, and we shall have no hesitation in recommending you, should the opportunity arise.
Mr Bethel, Kettering
I am definately a happy bunny - the kitchen looks fantastic, especially with the extra lighting.
It will be so nice not to have to repaint the cupboard doors, and Tim loves the soft-close doors and drawers; apparently
I used to bang the doors shut, which would go right through him!
Ian, and the team, have done a great job once
again, and any time I can recommend you I do and will. Many people [other kitchen companies]
would not do a refurbishment, so we are pleased that you guys can.
Miss Cooper, Irthlingborough
I would just like to thank you for the excellent job Ian and his team made of my parent's kitchen. They
are thrilled with it, and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Once again thank you for the professional
service and workmanship we received.

both worked very hard when they fitted my new kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, they are both very dedicated to their business.
We have reccommended them to several friends, who have also used their services, they also have been delighted with the craftmanship,
knowledge and expertise Ian and Karan showed. In our opinion they are a company that truly deserves this award

Ian and Karen have
now become firm friends through our contact with them while Ian helped us with our fabulous kitchen. We have called upon them
for several things since our initial contact and they have always come up trumps and dealt with every situation in a professional
and courteous way. We would recommend their services to anyone and have done so our daughter was extending her house and Ian
provided plans for her new kitchen which has served her very well and to this day is extremely up to date.

We have worked
closely with IKD as they launched their new Kitchen showroom and have found Ian and Karan to be professional, friendly and
working to their own exacting standards. We were stunned during the launch as we spoke to their customers and discovered they
had built real relationships so much so that their customers are friends as much as clients.

Quality of the
finished job is always excellent. IKD are both knowledgeable and expert. They've carried out three jobs for me, all to
the same high standard. Advice is always offered and usually proves to be invaluableI felt that I should drop you a line to
say how pleased we are with our new bathroom.
Mr & Mrs Bull,
I felt that I should drop you a line
to say how pleased we are with our new bathroom.
Considering the very limited space, you have done very well to
install a bath, wash basin, WC and bidet and so much storage space, and the tiling looks great.
The bathroom is
now the smartest room in the house!
We will not hesitate to recommend you.

Good Luck Card (Upon Kitchen Showroom Opening Event)
Ian & Karan,
Congratulations on the growth of a great family business. We are pleased to say we have
had great work carried out by you in our past and present house. We have passed your name onto many people with confidence.
Well done, wishing you many more years of great success.
Mr & Mrs
this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "Ian was
recommended to us by a friend to undertake a total replacement of our kitchen on a renovation project. His initial approach
to us was extremely professional yet very personable, and he made numerous suggestions as to the design taking our preferences
into full account.
Having got estimates from a number of 'national' companies I expected a bespoke solution
to be much more expensive. However IKD was extremely competative and the product was of a very high standard. Being customised
by a professional carpenter meant that all the units and appliances fitted into the available space beautifully.
I have NEVER come across such a meticulous, consistent and tidy worker as Ian - at the end of each day every scrap of wood,
shavings and materials was tidied and the workspace left immaculate - he even washed down the floors on more than one occasion.
The work was carried out in a timely fashion and everything finished to the highest standards. Ian himself is a very likeable
person who built a great relationship with us, but is not at all a pushy type - just quietly gets on with the job in hand.
We cannot recommend Ian and IKD highly enough."

Top Qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity
Mrs Banks, Mears Ashby
I'm delighted to recommend IKD Kitchens, who have designed and installed us the
most beautiful kitchen. From our first appointment with Ian it was clear that he knew exactly what he was
talking about, and he gave us some surprising and delightful design choices for our kitchen.
had so many choices, but Ian took the time to learn what we wanted and talked us through all of the options, so we ended up
getting the most value for our money.
The kitchen installation went without a hitch and with the
minimum of fuss or disruption, and all of the plumbing, electrics and tiling was taken care of for us, which was great.
The finished result still takes my breath away, it's beautiful and our friends will be contacting IKD themselves very
Please do not hesitate to have IKD Kitchens install your kitchen - they are masters at what
Mrs Donnelly, Kettering
Without hesitation I would recommend this company with regard to excellent work, with particular
attention to detail.
I had my bathroom totally refurbished. Computer designs were available before the work
commenced. The bathroom is now a showpiece, with many friends/neighbours commenting on the quality of the workmanship.
There was a minimum of disruption, and care was taken to ensure the area was cleaned daily.
this was quality material/work at competitive prices.
Mr Sweeney, Corby
We could not praise Ian's craftmanship and attention to detail enough.
Ian has installed a kitchen and built a walk in wardrobe for us. The ideas he suggested for our kitchen gave it a lovely
individual feel. Our wardrobe is to die for (places for all my shoes and boots!!). Ian gave a lot of thought to the layout
of the wardrobe to maximise every inch for hanging space and shelving. He is very considerate within your home and keeps disruption
to a minimum.
We have recommended Ian to other members of our family, who have been thrilled with his work.
CAN'T RECOMMEND IAN AND KAREN HIGHLY ENOUGH.
Mrs Rogers, Corby
I don't usually feel compelled to write letters like this, but I have to say how delighted
I am with my new kitchen.
From the first time we met Ian he was very professional yet friendly, and he was very
patient with me when I kept changing my mind on the design I wanted.
The work was carried out with the minimum
of fuss and mess, and we are very pleased with the finished result.
Recently I had a kitchen refurbishment carried out by IKD. The work was completed on time
in a craftsman-like manner, quietly, efficiently and tidily. I am delighted with the result and have no hesitation in
recommending IKD to anyone.
Mr Fletcher, Corby
It gives me great pleasure to write
a few words on behalf of IKD, I have the tiniest bathroom ever and never thought it could be better until I was introduced
to Ian. Ian designed me a lovely bathroom, showed me pictures of what it was going to look like and everything before
work even started and now I have a gorgeous bathroom with a corner loo that gives me so much more space.
Mrs Barnes, Little Harrowden
Very happy to recommend IKD Kitchens
they did a great job at a great price.
You'll be safe in their hands
Mr Coles, Market Harborough
Via The Best of Kettering website
We only had a kitchen makeover but it has transformed our kitchen for us. Would definitely contact Ian & Karan when we
get round to redoing the whole kitchen. Ian & Simon were extremely efficient & conscientious & even cleared up
after themselves at the end of the day-most appreciated but not expected. I don't know of any other workmen that do this!!!
Can't praise you all enough & would certainly recommend you to anyone.
Miss Cooper, Irthlingborough
Re: Replacement Dishwasher
Just a quick thank you for your prompt and efficient service with the provision and installation
of my new dishwasher.
It is much appreciated and I'll continue to keep in touch for further requirements.
With thanks once again.
Ms Butt, Bedford
Re: Replacement Fridge Freezer
I am writing to express my gratitude for your prompt action in replacing my integrated
fridge freezer. After a tentative initial inquiry I was pleased to receive a competitive quotation by return.
Your attention to detail regarding sizes and proportions and installation, avoided any problems later on.
To find someone able to supply and install an integrated
appliance at such short
notice a week before Christmas was a Godsend. I found your knowledge and understanding
reassuring and we will have no hesitation in recommending your services to all our friends in the future.
Mr & Mrs Clutton, Kettering
Re: My Beautiful New Kitchen
I have been wandering around my new kitchen and I can't
begin to tell you how happy I am with your work, you really are the best. Bryan recommended me to you in such glowing
terms I thought it was impossible for you to live up to what he'd said about you, but it's all true.
How you have designed such a beautiful kitchen in such an awkward shaped - and unsquare!!! - room I'll never know.
And you were right, the magic corner has made all the difference, I don't get lost in the back of the cupboard
Your workmanship and reliability is second to none - you're actually there when you say you're
going to be there and the cleaning up after yourselves every day was wonderful - thanks for that mate. Please let me
know if you'd like me to write a letter of recommendation - and don't forget to post off the Guild of Master
Craftsman questionnaire, I'll be more than happy to fill it in for you.
Thanks for a great job Ian, I'll
be in touch for a new bathroom soon.
Re: Online tap sale
When I needed an Astracast Agena tap that no one else could supply,
I contacted Karan at IKD who sourced and supplied exactly what I wanted in a matter of hours rather than the weeks I
was quoted elsewhere, and at an unbeatable price!
It was refreshing to find a company with true "customer
care" even down to a follow up email asking if all was OK.
Many thanks for all your help.
Mr Plumb, Dorset: www.winch-it.com
We are absolutely delighted with the work you have carried out for us in the refit of our downstairs cloakroom.
The advice you have given and your attention to detail at every stage, from the initial design and quotation to completed
project has been excellent.
impressive has been your quality of workmanship which we can only describe as "first class". This is not an
accolade we give lightly but in your case is well deserved.
has been a pleasure to have you do work on our home and we thank you for the excellent job you have done.
Mr & Mrs Gooda, Peterborough
I am particularly pleased to write this letter on behalf of Ian Dennis.
Over the past few years, he has built a new kitchen and bathroom at my home. In addition
he constructed a loft area and the furniture for a home office.
Without exception, I have been gratified by the care and attention Ian devotes to each project and the
fact that he completes them on budget.
It is particularly worth noting that he makes effort to minimise
disruption and clean up after every working day. Ian is conscientious, flexible and helpful. From first hand experience, I am happy to recommend
Mr Folley, Stamford
Just wanted to put on record how pleased we are with all the work you have now completed in the house. We are
delighted with the fitting of the two bathrooms, the cloakroom and the upgrading of the kitchen.
and attention to detail is of the highest quality. We
realise that our quirky house presented the odd problem, but you took each of these in your stride and with good humour.
We have no hesitation in recommending
your craftsmanship to any prospective clients, and we wish you and your family all the best for the future.
