Let’s assume you’re looking for a ‘modern look’ kitchen, rather than something more traditional or rustic. Contour, who specialise in Leicht cabinetry, should be top of your list of studios to visit.

We offered 6 suppliers the chance to win our business, having visited and considered many more, but Contour bested the others by some distance.

Their design was creative. They listened to our ideas; took into account our preferences; but they were prepared to challenge our thinking and propose alternatives.

We’re very particular (some might say overly fussy!) and we’d have forgiven the Contour team had they lost patience with our frequent changes and protracted indecision. They didn’t. Not a hint of any frustration or irritation - consummately professional.

The whole process felt collaborative - Contour were working with us throughout. Everyone at the studio David, Rachael, Jon, Alex, and Sarah (who’s now left Contour - we’ve been reassured we weren’t the cause!) all ‘knew their onions’. The depth and breadth of product knowledge of course inspires confidence, but it also saved time and (even more) agonising. The consequences of some of our decisions were anticipated, explained, and quickly addressed. We always felt we were in safe hands.

All the time and effort that went into finalising the design would have counted for little had the installation not also been first class. We’ve had a lot of work done on our house with many trades involved. We’ve been fortunate enough to choose talented people who, for the main part, completed their jobs to a high standard and also respected our property and our neighbours. However, nobody has been as careful or as precise as Richard was when installing our kitchen. The scribing he did to fit panels around awkward beams has to be seen to be believed - a true craftsman.

Without qualification or reservation, I’d recommend Contour to anyone considering a kitchen upgrade who values both quality products and the ‘personal touch’. If you’re still vacillating then try to time things so your installation is close to Christmas. Contour will invite you to a seasonal celebration in their studio, and Alex’s mince pies are ‘to die for’!

With a big-ticket item such as a kitchen, it was important to get the right agents/designers as well as the right brand. After an extensive search, we immediately warmed to the team at Contour. At no time did we feel that we were being sold to. We were coached and guided into choosing a kitchen to our tastes. When we asked for an opinion we were given it but otherwise, we found the team at Contour to be very patient and encouraging. Ultimately we ended up with a kitchen we love and still can’t believe it’s ours. A great kitchen, on time and within budget....we would thoroughly recommend Contour.

We were looking for a kitchen supplier who would work with us to develop a design that fitted our live style needs perfectly as well as solving some difficult design issues that came from creating a modern kitchen within the limitations of an old house. We found the staff at Contour extremely helpful, imaginative and very patient. Their designer was willing to spend a lot of time with us perfecting the design until we were totally happy with it, making the whole design experience a pleasure.
The installation process was efficient and of an excellent quality involving the removal of the old kitchen, making good walls and ceiling, seamlessly patching up an oak floor and renewing all the plumbing and electrics. All their recommended work men did an excellent job and were a pleasure to have working in our home. Their kitchen fitter was particularly highly skilled and his perfectionist approach ensured a very high quality finished job.
The end product lives up to all our expectations in terms of both quality and design.

The planning of our new kitchen was a couple of years in the making as we embarked on a self build project. The team at Contour supported us throughout the project and gave excellent advice and guidance to make sure we achieved what we wanted. We had many on site discussions as well as visits to the showroom fine tuning the design. They were always on hand to help with any issue big or small, the service was always professional and friendly and we built a good rapport with the whole team. We needed a fair amount of flexibility on the installation as other trades were on site during the finishing process and the fitters worked around everything brilliantly. The kitchen, utility and study are fantastic and we get so many compliments thanks to the excellent team at Contour!

Contour were extremely helpful from the first visit through to the actual build and to completion. We were fully involved in the design process - good advice was given, the CAD images were very helpful and allowed us to see what the completed kitchen would look like.
The Contour team were very professional from showroom, design, installation. No hesitation in recommending their services. The kitchen is now being used and we love it! No issues.

We are delighted with our kitchen from Contour. The design team listened to exactly what we wanted but also suggested other ideas and possibilities which was great because they came up with things we hadn’t even considered. They also allowed us to make decisions as and when we needed to. We weren’t clear exactly how the central island would look as it was dependent on a pillar being placed. Contour allowed us to keep the plans very flexible until we knew exactly how the island would look. We are also delighted with our appliances. We had never considered a Gaggenau oven or a Quooker tap but I absolutely love them and I’m so glad Contour explained their benefits to us.

The whole team at Contour were outstanding from start to finish. Sarah took our ideas and made them into a stunning kitchen; she just thought of everything. They were very accommodating when our builder delayed proceedings and did everything they said they would and more. It wasn’t a cheap kichen but the pricing was very transparent and we felt in control of the budget throughout.
Contour were everything you hope for when you go to an independant company to provide a bespoke service, but so rarely get. Thank you David, Rachael and the whole Contour team. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting the perfect kitchen.

Contour designed and installed a Leicht kitchen into an extension to our modest Victorian semi in Cheltenham. We’d considered cheaper alternatives but decided to go for one that we both liked as soon as we saw it in Contour’s design store. We’re extremely glad we did: the kitchen is great, we love it, the design work was meticulous, the budgeting/invoicing was clear and went well - no nasty surprises; Contour were accommodating as to timing, which had to be adjusted to suit the vagaries of construction elsewhere in the house - and the installer (Adrian) was unfailingly calm, professional and pleasant: all in welcome and stark contrast to the builder, which is another story...

We chose Contour to supply and install our kitchen because David was so knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Plus the price was right!!! Good communication throughout the order process and, although we messed them around with the delivery date, they bent over backwards to fit us into the installation diary. David was very happy for us to chose the appliances we wanted and not go with their suggestions. The fitting went very smoothly and they did an excellent job. We are thrilled with our kitchen - it does exactly what we wanted it to do and I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Contour to anyone looking to install a new kitchen.

Our kitchen was part of a complete renovation of a grade 2 listed Regency town house
Contour had to work both within the Planning constraints and the inevitable delays and unexpected problems that come with such a project. Their work from initial concept through to execution and fitting was always professional and considerate
Communication was excellent and at every stage we knew exactly what was happening and when
The Liecht product is excellent and performing very well and together with the team at Contour a great product and service combination
The kitchen is exactly in line with the original concept despite the aforementioned project issues which is illustrative of the teams experience and creativity
We would thoroughly recommend Contour

Contour guided us through the design process from start to finish and managed to translate our ideas into a finished kitchen that sits at the heart of the extension project. This included some of our slightly more off the wall ideas like the Dekton bar. The project is really beautifully shown off by the photographs on Houzz. We are very proud of the project. Thanks very much to the team at Contour for making it happen.

We had our kitchen designed and fitted by Contour over the summer. From our first visit to the showroom until project completion everyone we dealt with was friendly and professional. We chose Contour due to their ability to manage the entire project and produce an upfront quote that covered all the costs involved. Further to that, the initial designs captured our requirements well and through a process of discussions they produced a design we were very happy with.

The fitting process went well and any issues that arose were handled swiftly. Special mention is in order for the kitchen fitter who’s attention to detail and skill had a really positive effect on the final result.

Throughout the whole process no request was too much trouble and various design changes were incorporated without any fuss. The result is a kitchen that has totally exceeded our expectations and that we are thrilled with.

I would absolutely recommend Contour.

We felt comfortable from when we first visited Contour as David was knowledgeable about Leicht kitchens but without being pushy to make a sale; in fact, we had to volunteer our details before we left! The two key things that stood out with their proposed layout were the simple but effective idea to box in above the units to create a clean wall run and to have a table extension to the island with just a central support. They were initially intrigued by our bold colour choice but, having visited our house, could see how it would fit in. The project ran smoothly and all of the contractors were first class. We would recommend being on site for the work as there are always things that need on the spot decisions. Contour kept to their timetable of getting us a working kitchen in four weeks.

We are incredibly happy with our LEICHT kitchen - I had set ideas about what I wanted; the design team were friendly, professional, listened to my requests; and also came up with great ideas along with a good looking/well laid out design. The LEICHT kitchen is of the up most quality, and Contour’s after sales customer service is first class. We have, and will; continue to recommend Contour.

From the start to completion, changing our kitchen has been a pleasure. Contour was so patient with my changes of ideas and made suggestions and accommodated all my requests. We are so happy with the result! The workmen were very skilful and there was no such thing as a problem -only a solution. I am pleased to recommend Contour highly.

I spent a lot of time looking for a kitchen company to work with. I chose Contour because I felt I’d get a good product but also good customer service. My hopes were exceeded on both counts. Contour designed and installed the kitchen, pantry and laundry room for our new build project. They were incredibly patient with my constant changes during the design process and came up with lots of ideas that have made all three rooms look and function brilliantly. All staff - in the showroom and installers - were a pleasure to work with. I really can’t recommended this company highly enough.
