Client Testimonials


Delighted with the end result

"Moving to Tauranga in 2019 we went to the Home Show and from there it was all on for a new kitchen. Rachel (designer) was/is a delight and when the design had to change, due to an unexpected supporting pillar, the new design was soon processed. The end result has turned out to be the better of the two designs. We are delighted with the end result with heaps of storage. The installers were pleasant to deal with and we would have them back again."

Solid oak kitchen for the same price as MDF

"I had envisaged a black kitchen with oak accents and didn’t want imitation MDF oak. Thankfully we visited the Bay of Plenty Homeshow in 2019 and came across the BespOak stand. I knew I had finally found the team who could produce the look I wanted. Better still we could have a solid oak kitchen for the same price as MDF.  We also took full advantage of their Homeshow special that year -a free Belling CookCentre! A beautiful oven in looks and function. From design to installation Chris and the team were very hands-on and went out of their way to make our vision a reality. Every detail was listened to. One example, I sent an image of a set of hooks I liked and found a complimentary duplicate set left by my front door!  This new kitchen was also part of a bigger renovation and BespOak worked in with our builders to deliver the kitchen on schedule. We couldn’t be happier with the results and we are certainly reaping the full benefits of every detail during this lockdown time as we cook breakfast, lunch and tea from scratch! Thanks so much, BespOak."

"On my first visit to your showroom, Russell was very knowledgeable with all the kitchen components and offered advice on cabinets and the best placement for them.  Rachel fitted in with my work schedule for measuring and quoting-she did this throughout the renovation.  Chris is brilliant at finding ways to deal with any arising problems and getting all the HEAVY cabinetry up the stairs, and taking away all the packaging.  Stephanie was always very helpful with any questions on the phone. Now that my Impressive BespOak kitchen is complete I am Very Happy with it. Thanks to all the crew for their excellent customer service and advice throughout the renovation. I would highly recommend you. 5 STARS!"

Very solid and very well made

"I really love all the kitchen units and I believe that all the items on the snagging list were dealt with promptly professionally and properly and that's really important because on a project this size there are always going to be snags so it's great to know they will be sorted to your satisfaction. The kitchen is practical and beautiful.  I love the large sink, the beautiful oak corner shelves and the efficient pantry.  The Juno Insinkerator multitap is brilliant, I haven't boiled a jug since it was fitted.  I definitely recommend keeping to light colours for walls and benchtops.  The black benchtop shows every single wipe mark, I am constantly having to wipe it over. The fitting of the units was really easy as all the units are delivered already made up.  They are very solid and very well made which made fixing easy."

The yellow kitchen just had to go!

"After purchasing our dream home, a 1930s weatherboard, we have been slowly renovating it over the years and finally decided the yellow kitchen just had to go.  After visiting the Tauranga Home Show and seeing the BespOak Kitchen stand we knew instantly that was the kitchen for us.  It had everything we wanted in a kitchen, character, beautiful solid oak timber units which could be painted and with a modern touch of having soft close drawers. We visited the BespOak showroom more than once to view the kitchens on display and we were always warmly welcomed by Russell.  Nothing was ever an issue; a decision was required on what to do with our wooden floorboards and Chris arranged for Russell to drop off a unit to us so we could see how the Oak would look against the floors.  I found the tap I loved, and Chris went to work sourcing it, he found the last one in the country thankfully as the wait would have been over six weeks if we had to order one.  Chris arranged the installer who had the right skills required to fit the kitchen into an old house with uneven floors, the workmanship and finish is amazing. Chris was brilliant to deal with; he understood our vision and what we were trying to achieve, and we so appreciated his patience as we decided on which way to go with our kitchen. Instead of having a dining table in the kitchen area we went with a separate large island, best decision ever, it is our gathering point, it gives us extra storage and workspace and the flow all around the kitchen area is fantastic.  We are just so glad we went with BespOak Kitchens as we now have a kitchen that is the perfect design for our house and ourselves and at a price that we could afford, all thanks to Chris and the team at BespOak Kitchens."

Love the warmth of the natural wood

"We are so pleased with our BespOak kitchen, and love the warmth of the natural wood.  From design through to installation the service from all the team was excellent. Chris took a personal interest to ensure we were happy with the final design, and that installation was completed to a high standard, including custom made frosted glass cupboard doors!  The kitchen layout works perfectly and the style complements the character of our home beautifully. This is a quality kitchen that is a pleasure to spend time in."

Heart of the house

"We recently fitted a Bespoak kitchen in our newly built house and it gave us the wow factor that we were looking for. It has instantly become the heart of the house and we couldn’t be happier! Amazing quality, beautiful looking and an incredible price for the finished product. Chris and the team worked with us to get the design absolutely perfect. The personal service was outstanding! They were patient, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We couldn’t recommend Bespoak highly enough! Will definitely be buying more of their beautiful furniture in the future."

Builders who installed the kitchen were amazed at the quality and value...

"My husband and I first came across BespOak Kitchens at the ASB home show a couple of years ago. We loved the units but they looked too expensive for us and our kitchen didn't need replacing. However, two years later when we decided to build our own house we decided to check out their kitchens just in case we could find a way to afford one.  We were very pleasantly surprised at the quote we received from Chris after one of their professional planners drew up a plan for us. We decided to go for it and haven't looked back. The BespOak staff worked well with our builders who installed our kitchen and were very quick to respond and fix a minor problem we had with a drawer after moving in. The units are of high quality and look great. Our builders who installed the kitchen were amazed at the quality and value...and so were we."

"The installed kitchen is epic and exactly what we wanted, thank you. We love the quality of the product, its construction and more importantly, the quality of the support we have been given by BespOak throughout every stage of the design and re-design process, Jessica is a real asset too. Please let her know we really appreciated her un-flappable support of this part of our project as we had to amend our design as other parts of our restoration project ballooned out of budgetary control. Restoring 110 year old 2.0m tall Kauri sash windows is an expensive and very protracted process (we have been without windows for 7 weeks, up until last Friday)! We love the whole concept of BespOak, its products and now its exemplary service, thank you again. We will be recommending BespOak to anyone who will listen to us."

"Jessica, I know David has already written but I wanted to email and say a massive thank you to you, and to BespOak for such a beautifully crafted kitchen. Shaun is a genius and has installed the kitchen to the same degree of beauty that it is crafted with. It looks fantastic and we are very, very pleased. The larder issue has been solved to our perfect satisfaction and again, Shaun did an amazing job; he didn't leave us until nearly 9pm on day two! Such dedication. The whole procedure was made seamless due to your experience and exceptional customer service. We are delighted that we stumbled upon your website all those months ago and we are not disappointed. My thanks go to you, Chris and Russell and Shaun for everything. We will have no hesitation in recommending BespOak to anyone who needs a new kitchen. It's been a pleasure dealing with such consummate professionals."
