Initial contact is always important to me, and Ash and the team from Summit Kitchens did not disappoint. Everything ran smoothly and on time. The level of professionalism from all the tradesmen were brilliant. They were all polite, respectful of each other. The quality of my new kitchen is magnificent. I would not change anything about it. Very clever use of space has been applied. It was a very pleasant experience seeing the the kitchen unfold. I would recommend this company highly, nothing was a problem, I did change my mind on a couple of things and it was worked out straight away. The 5 star rating was easy to give. If you're searching for a new kitchen, this is the company to go with.

Summit Kitchens were integral in providing me with my dream kitchen! I had very exacting requirements for my kitchen and Ashley and his team delivered in spades. I really enjoyed working with Ashley because he performed so well on many levels:1.Ashley was very encouraging and respectful of my, at times, fussy requirements and he added value by translating those requirements to very practical solutions to come up with the final detailed specifications for the kitchen;2.He had endless patience in adjusting, re-inventing and researching the options available and was more than happy to delve into features that he had not come across before eg. the charging station for all our devices which cluttered the bench in our old kitchen (beware of clients who scour the web and come up with obscure ideas that they want implemented!);3.The complexity of the job was such that we had countless numbers of tradesmen crawling over our kitchen. Ashley was able to work well with the builders who I engaged separately beforehand and he virtually “project managed” all the other tradesmen so that I did not have to worry about every pesky detail that needed to be sorted out;4.Most importantly, Ashley and his team had a keen eye for detail and were meticulous in their construction of the kitchen. For example, due to cost considerations, we decided to keep our original terracotta flooring. When installing the kickboards, no effort was spared by Ashley’s team to ensure they fitted seamlessly with the seriously uneven floor;5.Finally Ashley and his team provided us with a quality product that will serve us well for many years.The transformation has been amazing. Friends have commented that my kitchen is a work of art. I am really pleased that even as a work of art, functionality has NOT been compromised. My original vision of the kitchen design has been more than realised. Many thanks to everyone at Summit Kitchens!Charlotte

This was the second time we have worked with Ash and the team since our beautiful kitchen two years ago. Again nothing was too much bother in a job our builder at the time had said was impossible. Great care and attention to detail. Thanks again. Mal & Letina.

Customer service is considered old fashioned these days but not with Summit Kitchens. Ash, Lisa and their team have put together a beautiful kitchen for us. Right through from the design stage to the installation we were fully confident that the end product was going be stunning, and it is. Well done Ash and Lisa and a big thank you from us.

A big shout out for Summit Kitchens, Ash, Lisa and their team. They transformed our empty space into a happy place. Right from the get-go Ash was there to guide us through the design with his ideas and implementing ours. Love the soft closing drawers, so easy to be organised and see things at a glance, the over bench top lighting, the roll top appliance cupboard and the sensor lighting in the pantry. All the workers on the job were respectful and did precision work. A big thank you to Richard for being so particular in the final touches. You can have confidence of a first class job with Summit Kitchens. Thanks Ash and Lisa.

From our first meeting with designer Jess and Managing Partners Ash and Lisa, we instantly knew we would be in good hands. Their level of professionalism and expertise was balanced with warmth and excellent communication skills. Jess was a great listener who helped us develop our ideas for a French country kitchen, then won us over with her clever layout. All throughout the construction process, Ash oversaw each step and ensured we were fully informed with the building process. Different tradespeople were involved in the construction and everyone who walked through our door was polite, respectful and skilled in their area. We are thrilled with our dream kitchen and would highly recommend Summit Kitchens.

I had been searching for a quality kitchen builder for months that would work with me and my wife to produce a kitchen that matched our vision for our home. Summit kitchens delivered just that! Ash was fantastic to deal with, he kept in regular contact with us ensuring our timelines were adheared to. They had a very old style customer service, the type your grandparents talked about as if it were a fond memory of times gone by (a rarity these days with most companies not wanting to even give you the time of day without something in it for them!). I had been to many other kitchen places before speaking with Ash's team and decided he was the right fit for us. The volume kitchen makers make you feel like you're just a number and take no care with your product nor with what you want constantly charging along the way and giving you a out of the box, flat pack kitchen.Summit kitchens were clear with costs and no hidden adjenda. We always get positive comments on our kitchen and all the credit should be given to Summit Kitchens. Well worth the money and should i ever need a new kitchen in the future or ever get asked for a recommendation Summit Kitchens is who i would recommend.One of a kind kitchen fitting from a one of a kind business.

Awesome experience with true professionals... Most of us only renovate a kitchen once in a lifetime, and while doing so can be a stressful and formidable task, it can be made much easier with professional and friendly experts to guide you along the way. And, I have to say, I can't recommend Summit Kitchens highly enough. The whole team was professional and fantastic from day one all the way through to final completion. Their advice was always welcomed, and their expert opinions made this a dream renovation for us. Thanks to Ash and the whole team. We love our new kitchen...it's changed the house in ways we never dreamt possible.

Summit Kitchens did an excellent job remodelling our kitchen. Our cramped, flat-pack nightmare is now a quality, custom-built kitchen and euro laundry that flows really well. We’re very happy with the result which has improved the value of our property. A big thanks to the whole team, especially Ash and Karl who were helpful and approachable along the way. We certainly recommend Summit Kitchens if you’re looking for a stress-free, quality kitchen renovation at a competitive price.

Summit Kitchens were great from the start, my difficult brief... a second kitchen upstairs at my beach house. A hidden kitchen behind a large barn siding door. I was impressed with Ash and his professional insight into making this super long kitchen work for my needs. The black accessories, were part of my brief. I choose the hexagonal tiles and designed the pattern myself taking a bold step using two tones, and I think it has paid off with the excellent workmanship of Summit Kitchens, every thing fitted perfectly. I love it.

The service we received from Summit Kitchens from the initial consultation through to completion of our new kitchen was excellent.Ash designed a kitchen that would work for our family and allow us to finally have a proper meals area and create a study.All the team at Summit including Ash, Karl, Richard and all their sub-contractors were professional, reliable and nothing was ever too much trouble. We have so much storage now that we haven't even filled all the drawers! We absolutely love our kitchen.As we moved walls and installed a new larger kitchen window, Summit needed to be able to coordinate with our builder which was done with ease. The quality of workmanship from Summit is outstanding.We have, and will continue to recommend Ash and the Summit team to anyone that asks about our beautiful new kitchen renovation!

His design was far better than what we had imagined. The installers we friendly and thoughtful. They respected us and our home- taking shoes off and cleaning up after themselves.We honestly could not recommend them more highly. Thank you so much for being such a pleasure to deal with. We absolutely made the right choice in working with you.

Summit Kitchens were amazing! Ash was so approachable and willingly took onboard all our concerns and considerations. When meeting Ash we instantly felt at ease, that our kitchen renovation was going to be in his good and expertise hands. Actually, he was probably fussier than we were concerning the layout of the kitchen and he was passionate and pedantic about every aspect of our new kitchen. Then over five weeks Karl, Richard and Adrienne worked methodically at demolishing and removing the old kitchen and then installing our new kitchen. They were punctual, reliable and nothing was ever too much trouble. During the renovation, we loved coming home each night to see how the kitchen had progressed during the day. Also, previously we had the worst pantry in the world…a deep corner with no lighting and groceries that just had disappeared into the “pantry nowhere mansland”. However, now, with our new kitchen we know exactly where everything is, in its own special place. This has just made life sooooo much easier from a cooking or shopping point of view!We think it was well worth the money spent and thanks again to the Summit Kitchens staff, for all of your assistance and proficiency at creating our everlasting, stylish and practical kitchen.

From beginning to end it as an absolute pleasure to work with Ash and the team at Summit Kitchens. I had a few unusual requests and these were listened to and embraced. Ash went to no end of trouble to make my dream kitchen come to life. Every single person arrived on time, worked efficiently and was clean and tidy. What a rarity these days! After a less than successful kitchen Reno years ago Ash and the Summit team have restored my faith in good workmanship, and I truly believe they take pride in there work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them in every way. In fact I have already to many people.Thanks for making my dream a reality Summit Kitchens.

We are thrilled that we decided to go with Ash and the team at Summit Kitchens – our new kitchen is beautiful, functional and exactly what was envisioned when we sat down with Ash. Ash brought some great ideas to the table – I LOVE my appliance cupboard – and the result is an amazing kitchen. The entire team at Summit Kitchens were wonderful, always on time and very accommodating, not to mention skilled at what they do. In addition, every trade that came in and out of the house were a delight – there was not a time where we had to wait – people arrived on time and each and every person did a great job. We have had no hesitation in recommending Summit Kitchens to anyone who has asked about how our kitchen renovation has gone – we cannot speak highly enough of you all. We wish Ash and all the team at Summit Kitchens continued success. Beth & Paul

When we started looking around to get a new kitchen, we never thought we would end up with such an amazing kitchen. It is more than we ever could have wished for. We went to all the showrooms and after a while, knew what we wanted to some extent. We called out a couple of the large kitchen places and a couple of designers came out to quote our job. Not sure why they are called “designers”, as they had no wish to care about what our needs were. Some companies wanted us to build a standard kitchen and we wanted something different. One of them even came up with the 3d image of what SHE wanted NOT what we asked for. IT was basically the same design as we currently had. So we went to Summit Cabinets and from the first meeting with Ash, we knew we had to go with them. Ash has an amazing eye for detail and started to ask us questions about what we value in a kitchen. We entertain a lot, so we needed a kitchen that would be extremely functional, huge pantry and more than enough storage space, and at the same time be very modern and look fantastic. There was nothing that we asked for that was too hard. Summit Cabinets spent time ensuring every inch was covered and thought about. When they started to put it all together, we met Richard and Carl, who came out on site and were fantastic. They were friendly, helpful and perfectionists. Nothing was rushed and no surprises. It went in like a dream. Ash came to ensure we were happy more than we expected. When the job was finally finished we were extremely pleased with it. Summit Cabinets provide a service second to none. The question is not why should you chose to go with Summit Cabinets?, but rather Why Would you NOT? This would have to be one of the most exciting and smooth projects we have ever gone through and we have spent the last 30 years renovating houses. There “Can-Do” friendly and family oriented business is a little treasure that they should be very proud off. They make a difference to people’s lives and bring joy to what is typically a horrible and messy experience. We were so pleased that we invited them for dinner to show them how well it functioned and they are now our newly found friends. You can’t ask for more than that. Thank you Summit Cabinets for making our home so much better.With our warmest regards,Andrew, Penny, Rebecca, Kristy and Cassandra

IMPECCABLE QUALITY

We know quality is a term that is thrown around a lot, and everyone says it. We don’t just care about it, we obsess about it!

The kitchens we design and build are impeccable. We will not put our name to any kitchen that is not perfect in all aspects. All of our kitchens and cabinetry are carefully manufactured in our Melbourne based factory under strict quality assurance procedures.

From the initial kitchen design stage through to the installation process, we work closely with you, bringing a fresh and dynamic approach to ensure our customers really do receive the kitchen they dream of. The happiness of our customers is our highest priority. Our staff are carefully chosen to ensure that all employees of Summit Kitchens imbue Ashley’s standard of perfection and superb customer interactions.

We can manage all trade work that is required to complete your kitchen. This means, that there is nothing you need to do yourself. We will schedule plumbing, electrical, plastering, the stone mason and splashback suppliers so that the complete installation of your new kitchen is managed for you. All the trade people we use are fully qualified and licensed. Of course, you are very welcome to use your own trades people if you prefer.

IN A SUMMIT KITCHEN, THE MAIN INGREDIENT IS YOU

No two kitchens that we produce are the same. Ever. To be truly functional, your kitchen must be inspired by you – your needs, habits, lifestyle and, of course, your taste. So let’s dream up your ultimate kitchen, together. You can bring the flavour!
