Quality Kitchens

Everything we do is focused on delivering quality kitchens – from the materials we use, to the manufacturing process, through to design, fitting and after-sales service.

Quality is the theme that runs through every element of the Nicholas Hythe Kitchens business – and that inevitably means using only the finest furniture available to ensure the very best outcome for clients every time.

Quality materials and suppliers

At Nicholas Hythe, we pride ourselves on an uncompromising commitment to quality. Our expert buyers are perpetually on the lookout for the finest materials and suppliers. This allows us to guarantee that our custom-built furniture not only exudes superior quality but is also competitively priced.

Unlike many competitors, we take pride in being transparent about our quality standards. So much so, that we’re happy to publish the full furniture specifications we adhere to. This enables our clients to compare standards with other providers, ensuring they understand the top-tier quality they’re receiving.

Our philosophy is built on the belief that a top-quality kitchen should be a long-term investment – ‘buy once, buy well’. Achieving longevity requires manufacturing and fitting to the very highest standards. Here’s what sets Nicholas Hythe apart:


  1. Thickness & Durability: We use 18mm melamine-faced chipboard, compared to the 15mm used by many competitors, adding sturdiness to our designs.
  2. Construction Integrity: Our cabinets are glued and dowelled, increasing rigidity and providing a substantial advantage over flat-packed and screwed options.
  3. Chipping Resistance: Additional full-width edging minimizes the risk of chipping, ensuring the elegance of the product lasts as long as its functionality.
4.   High-Quality Hinges & Drawers: All cabinets and drawers are equipped with soft-close steel hinges, providing a seamless and quiet operation.
5.  Tailor-Made Designs: Unlike the ‘off-the-shelf’ convenience that might restrict creativity, we manufacture to fit your specific requirements, allowing for truly personalised spaces.
6.  Pre-Assembled Units: Our units are supplied fully assembled, saving you time and ensuring professional quality.
7.  Colour Matching: Cabinets inside and out are colour-matched as closely as possible to the finish of the doors you choose, creating visual harmony and aesthetic appeal.
8.  Guaranteed Satisfaction: Our confidence in the quality of our furniture extends to our commitment to customer satisfaction. Should any concern arise, our responsive team is always on hand to assist you.

Our quality-focused approach is not merely about selecting the best materials; it’s about a cohesive process that combines expertise, craftsmanship, innovation, and a genuine understanding of our clients’ needs and tastes.


Quality of workmanship and finish

It doesn’t stop with our products and workmanship…

We want all clients to enjoy a quality experience from the moment they either inquire or visit our showroom or in their dealings with our Operations team once the project’s been confirmed. Attention to detail is fundamental to the success of Nicholas Hythe Kitchens and we only deal with quality suppliers and local contractors.
