From some of our many satisfied customers

Thanks Barretts for our stunning kitchen. We would especially like to thank Aimee, the talented Designer. She was attentive to our needs and created a kitchen beyond our expectations (and thankfully still within our budget)! We so appreciated Aimee’s care and attention for our project and this was throughout the entire process … she was an absolute pleasure to work with!

Thanks also to Mike for his care and attention when fitting our kitchen. Congratulations to the entire Barrett team on an excellent example of quality craftsmanship and an enjoyable and personable experience.

To all the people at Barrett’s who were responsible for my really cool kitchen, thank you very much. I love it and take every opportunity to encourage anyone thinking of building or renovating not to be afraid to use colour and to use Barretts.

- Jo Gregan

Wonderful service from the first point of call. Very accommodating. I was offered more information and service above what was required. Very helpful and pleasant. Warm and professional staff.

- Mystery shopper for the Business Excellence Awards

My client did a final site visit today and commented on the high quality of the joinery and the care and attention shown by the guys who did the installation. Please pass these comments onto the guys involved.

Thank you for the lovely cake thanking us for our support of the S.C. Hospice Walk. It was most unexpected and a lovely surprise. Paul and I are only too happy to support you all at Barrett Joinery at any time and in any way we can. It is little touches like this that go a long way.

- Jenny & Paul

Grateful thanks for your Designer for his expertise and contribution into creating a beautiful kitchen, pantry and bathroom. We are delighted with the design, joinery and functionalism of these areas.

- Donna & Graeme Bryce

Dear Sir, we are really thrilled with the alterations done and the workmanship is first class. Many thanks to your joiner and he did a wonderful cleanup as well.

- Gail Parker

We love our new kitchen and so does everyone who sees it!! People are immediately drawn to it. There isn't one thing we can fault it on and the benchtop is stunning. The glass is in the kitchen just gives the whole kitchen a real kick. Being textured makes it really stand out. 

- Kyla

I am over the moon with my new kitchen and install. I am having family to stay for the weekend and can't wait to show it off. I still haven't cooked in the oven yet and I am waiting for my family to take photos first!

- Mrs Kimble

I am absolutely entralled with my new kitchen. No one can believe it is painted and I wonder why people would get a new kitchen when they can just spray the old one like I have. My installer was a real gentleman and an absolute credit to the company. I would never normally leave tradesmen at my home alone but I felt comfortable enough with him to leave him on a number of times. Many people have seen my new kitchen and they all say how beautiful it is. I strongly recommend Barrett Joinery to them all!

- Jenny Crozier

We are thrilled with our kitchen renovation. Sean is amazing, he has done work for us before and we would recommend him to everyone. His detail and precise measurements were astounding. We had a vision and ideas and Sean could do exactly that and then add more on to make it even more amazing. We won't be moving for a while now - we just love it!!

- Mrs Sheddan

To the team at Barrett joinery, you are all so amazing! We cannot express our thanks enough for our dream kitchen. From start to finish you made it such a great experience! Special thanks to our Designer for her expertise and patience with us and our fitter was such a pleasure to have installing our kitchen. Barrett's are lucky to have them both! Thank you all so much.

- Lyn & Alyson McLauchlan

I just want to say thank you to Nadine for all your work on our kitchen. I know you thought I was a bit bonkers with my choices at times but you have made it work and it looks fabulous. We are thrilled to bits and the usual comment from our visitors has been something like WOW. 

- Linda Hogan

Just a quick note to say I have been up to the lake and viewed the new kitchen for the first time. I am absolutely delighted with it, it couldn't be better. Everything works so beautifully, a place for everything and so much easier to use. So thank you so much to all the staff for making such a professional job of our new kitchen.

- Jean Lewis

I would like to compliment staff at Barrett Joinery for my new kitchen. I would like to stress it is not just the Designer but all staff I would like to thank - factory staff, delivery man, installer etc. I am thrilled with my new kitchen!

- Sharon May

Barrett Joinery and our Designer were given a specific brief for our new kitchen. We wanted a modern design with clean lines and inventive use of space while at the same time ensuring that it remained a warm environment that all the family would enjoy using. I think the end result is more than we could have hoped for. It is a fantastic kitchen which is beautiful and yet extremely functional as well. I particularly like the use of different textures, combining the cleanliness of our white stone benchtops with the natural warmth of the wood tones that are found throughout the kitchen. There are also numerous hidden cupboards that keep everything out of sight but close to hand when you need them. A special mention must also be made of the desk which provides a lovely place for the children to do homework or art projects whilst remaining part of the hub of the home.

- Thomas Gough

Barrett Joinery have just completed my lovely new kitchen. It is so user friendly and ticks all the boxes as far as superb joinery and finish. I would especially like to give many thanks to Aimee for her professional manner and great ideas - she just seemed to know what would suit me. I will be singing Barrett Joinery's praises!

- Lynda Robertson

Kate and I would like to express our appreciation for the fine job and professionalism exhibited during the design and installation by everyone at Barrett Joinery. From our first encounter to the very end of the project our Designer had a keen eye for detail and the ability to match products with our vision for the design that met our aspirations for what is definitely the heart of our new home. It is has been a pleasure to work with Barrett Joinery and we have no hesitation to recommend them for future projects, not only for myself but clients from our Architectural Practice Newlove Browning Architects. The fitter paid enormous attention to the "fit and finish" of their work. The quality of the joinery and the installation was fantastic. Again we wish to thank you for making a difficult project go smoother than we could expect. The finished project is extraordinary!  

- Joshua Newlove & Kate Perry

Nadine, I was very pleased to read the article regarding your design winning the "Best Kitchen Design" award. You deserve the recognition as you are a very pleasant person to deal with, you are very talented and the designs you produce are excellent. We love our kitchen. 

- Kay & Graeme

I just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for the doors. They look fantastic in the house. Your fitter was amazing. What a great, careful, hard worker he is. Thank him again so much from me.

- Deborah Still

Firstly thank you for the warm welcome I always received from Jo on arrival. Nothing was ever a bother to Barretts plus you are super efficient. My Designer was a star, I even got my favourite colour. A kitchen is oh so important as I seem to spend a large percentage of my time in there. It needed to be special and to have you delivered - pretty & practical = perfect. A big thank you for being a good listener and making me happy.

- Margaret

My husband Tony and I have been lucky enough to have Nadine Hill as our kitchen design consultant. I have been just amazed with how nothing is a problem, how she goes out of her way to help, making sure we are well informed. Just how she has taken something I wasn't really looking forward to doing and making it a wonderful experience! Nadine has also taken small ideas of ours and with her creative thinking made them even better! Without being pushy, always letting us make a more informed choice because of her input. I could go on and on. I just wanted everyone to know what a treasure Barrett Joinery have as an Employee.

- Debbie Templeton-Page

Thank you once again to our Designer for all her help with our kitchen. It was much appreciated and we would like to let you all know that with all the companies we have dealt with over the months when our house was being built, Barretts was high on the list for helpful, fuss free and quality workmanship and service. It certainly makes a big difference over those stressful months. I am very much enjoying working in my new kitchen. Once again, thank you to all the team.

- Rachel Brodie

Barrett Joinery provided us with superb function and aesthetic beauty in the new kitchen of our 1930s rural home. We decided not to alter the construction of any part of the existing space which had been added to in the 1970s and which had resulted in different ceiling heights, a variety of materials used and additional challenges for the Barretts team! We chose half Spanish white painted cabinets, rimu benchtops, stainless steel appliances and partially tiled walls and managed to achieve the beautiful and efficient kitchen we wanted, within a very difficult space. The display of our collection of vintage kitchenware adds a quirky element which softens the sophistication of the room. I still get a thrill each time I show my kitchen off to visitors and particularly love the corner drawers!

- Joanna van Sprang

We are really pleased with our LouvreTec as now we can utilize our outdoor area more often due to the fact of being able to open and close the roof; allowing us that option of an outdoor area we can use all year around. Thanks Barretts for a great job.

- Pauline & Archie Caird

We recently got new LouvreTec roofing over the terrace on our new home. What a difference, the roof was installed on time with no problems. This has made a real feature to our home, the colour matches the rest of the home perfectly. It has extended our living areas bringing the outdoors indoors. It makes the terrace so much more livable in all weather as it is waterproof, with the adjustable louvres it can also be closed in cold winds so we can use this space almost every day. Thank you Barretts for a job well done we are very pleased.

- Sue & John Boulton

I found working with our Designer inspiring. She was very professional, keeping me on track and listening to my ideas. Our meetings were stimulating, professional and productive with an attention to detail. Her use of materials and colour knowledge was amazing and with only a few samples she would show me just the ideal product to meet my vision. Her design skills and specialist advice saw our collaboration achieve a contemporary kitchen that is a warm and inviting space in the centre of my new home that is a pleasure to cook and entertain in. Thank you so much.

- Sheryl Starkey

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your company for the wonderful work they did on our kitchen joinery in our new home in Temuka.  We found Nadine absolutely amazing in her professional friendly approach in designing our kitchen.  She thought of things that we hadn’t even considered; listened and interpreted our wishes with expertise.  She had lots of suggestions but was never pushy with her ideas. Her attention to detail and the workmanship of your joinery team has made us very proud of our working kitchen. We would highly recommend your company.

Many thanks

- Delwyn and Neil Ritchie

It was an absolute pleasure to sit with you Nadine and discuss all of this. By changing those cupboards, it opened up some great possibilities that we clearly had no idea about! Your experience in this industry is gold for people like us who have no clue! We have already discussed coming back to you for our next build so we hope you stick around...lets get this one done first! And Geoff needs to get some cake decorating practice in 😊

Looking forward to signing it all off next week - and how accurate is that pricing!
