Customer Testimonials

This is a Heading

We are absolutely thrilled with our new kitchen and the whole experience of working with Elisa was seamless. Our appointments were never rushed and always plentiful; she quickly tuned in to our vision, adding practical elements and additional design features which made such an impact to the finished result. She was professional, reliable, stuck to our budget and we felt truly listened to. Genuinely- we could not be happier!


Mrs B, Finchley Central N3

Elisa worked with us on our ground floor extension and renovation works, in particular this included a kitchen and separate utility / laundry room and put simply she was superb and a pleasure to work with. We had initially contacted the usual “high street” and trade suppliers but it was obvious once we had met Elisa that her attitude and attention to detail  went way, way beyond that of the companies we had spoken with. What they told us could not be achieved was made possible by Elisa and her fitter Piotr without fuss or any issues. They made the planning, supply and installation of our new kitchen and laundry room a stress and hassle free experience, if only we could have had ten Elisa Cooks to carry out the rest of our renovation and building works…! We would recommend Elisa without any hesitation at all…her attitude, attention to detail, desire to get everything just right for her clients, quality of goods supplied, after sales communication and overall involvement all add up to a service and experience that we could not find anywhere else! Excellent from start to finish and into the future. Thank you Elisa!

- Mr and Mrs M (Barnet)

We recently had the pleasure of working with Elisa and cannot recommend her highly enough. From the very beginning, Elisa provided us with practical and elegant solutions for a project we thought might never be completed. Her professionalism was evident in every interaction, consistently delivering on promises and maintaining transparency throughout the entire process. Working with Elisa was a delightful experience. She is not only incredibly skilled and knowledgeable but also genuinely lovely to work with. Her honesty and integrity shone through, making it easy to trust her advice and decisions. Elisa was always available, whether it was discussing the project over the phone or coming to our house to review plans. We always felt heard, and she guided us through every decision with patience and insight. Thanks to Elisa, our kitchen project was completed successfully, within our budget, and to a standard that exceeded our expectations. If you are looking for a kitchen designer who is talented, professional, and a true pleasure to collaborate with, we wholeheartedly recommend Elisa.

- Dr G (Finchley Central)

Within a day of receiving a query about my new kitchen, Elisa had completely re-imagined it.  Now, just a few months later, I am cooking and entertaining in the kitchen I always dreamed of having!  From dealing with the various vendors, to recommending appliances and instructing my builders, Elisa took charge and was helpful and available.  She was even able to source products and services in the height of the Covid supply chain chaos. 

- Ms P (Cricklewood)

Elisa was fantastic to work with. She made what seemed to be impossible, possible. We had tried using larger companies but couldn’t achieve exactly what we wanted. We had very particular requests and Elisa went above and beyond to make everything happen. We can’t thank her enough and would highly recommend to anyone asking. Best around!

- Mr R (Highgate)
We are happy to have worked with Elisa for our kitchen renovation. She listened to us, understood our needs and designed the perfect kitchen for us. They were very professional, working very carefully and rigorously. She was always organised and very helpful. When something did not turn out as we anticipated, she found solutions and supported us every way she can. We are so happy to have worked with Elisa and we are in love with our dream kitchen. Thank you so much!

- Mr M (East Finchley)

Elisa designed a beautiful new kitchen for us when we opened out our downstairs to make a large kitchen-diner. She was patient and helpful throughout (including helping us think through other aspects of our renovation) and we are delighted with the result. Everything is in exactly the right place to make using the kitchen easy, we have loads of storage, and it looks gorgeous. Her pricing was good too, better value than Wren, and her fitter was also great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Elisa.

- Mrs G (Whetstone)
Elisa was absolutely fantastic to work with. From our initial meeting to the installation, Elisa was there every step of the way to ensure we got our dream kitchen. We couldn't be happier with it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

- Ms P (Finchley Central)

Couldn’t be more thrilled with my new kitchen! Elisa really turned my dream kitchen into a reality and as a chef this was a tall order! Elisa was incredibly helpful and always at hand to answer any question both pre and post installation! A very happy customer.

- Mrs L (Hampstead Garden Suburb)
Elisa was committed to getting us the kitchen we wanted, willing to listen to our ideas and offering her own insights and experience. She remained patient and unflappable throughout our complicated build, and was hands on in making sure the finished product was as promised. We now have a beautiful kitchen, which is so much easier to use than our old one, is elegant and full of wow factor, but at the same time has some wonderful practical features, great and varied storage options, a brilliant larder with pull out drawers, plus a pantry cupboard, and we were able to dictate just what would work for us, in terms of drawers, shelves, open/glazed and closed units, etc. Would definitely recommend for an almost entirely bespoke kitchen that was reasonably priced and expertly fitted (with a lot of attention to detail).

- Mrs S (Muswell Hill) 
We are very happy we found and chose Elisa for our kitchen renovation project. At first we thought we would ask her to help with space planning for our new kitchen, then realised there are so many decisions to make around fixtures, cabinets, finish, functionality and she supported us with all of those. We are very glad that we opted to get her support with the build as well because it is so difficult to find quality builders at the moment. From start to finish she was great to work with, so friendly and invested and interested in our design and the finished product. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Thank you! 

- A & M (Hammersmith)
Elisa provided me with a five-star service from start to finish! Her patience and creativity were reassuring and motivating from the word go. She quickly understood the brief, incorporated my ideas into a fantastic design and remained available and involved until the kitchen was completely finished. The range of units (which I was so pleased are produced in the UK) had various design innovations that made them incredibly functional. This, along with the appliances that Elisa suggested and sourced meant that I have a kitchen that is not only a pleasure to look at but is also a delight to work in. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elisa completely to family and friends. 

- Mrs C (Finchley Central) 

We have worked with Elisa on the design of 5 kitchens for new houses that Yellow Door has recently built. Elisa not only showed a great understanding of the style we were looking for on each but also, through her detailed knowledge of the manufacturer we chose, she was able to offer practical advice as to what would actually work. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to both end users and contractors. She is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to collaborating with her again. 

- Paul Ashley, Yellow Door Property Services 

It was a pleasure to work with Elisa to design the kitchen for our new house; right from our first meeting through to standing together to admire the final result. I had not designed a kitchen before and Elisa lead me through the process with her wealth of knowledge. Although I had an idea of how I wanted the kitchen to look, I had no idea about the practical details required to create a successful kitchen design. There were so many important questions; how much space should the bins have? How far from the oven does the hob need to be? One sink versus two sinks? All questions she could answer clearly with experience and confidence. Elisa always offered her thoughts on the design but was never prescriptive and let me make the decisions. Any ideas I had, she looked at from a practical perspective and if she thought something would work she would help make it happen. She was also incredibly helpful in recommending products and talking through possible options. Elisa gave me a very personal service. I felt she put an incredible amount of time and effort into the design and planning. She was even on site every day during the installation. I’m delighted with the quality of the kitchen, which is fabulous. All the cabinetry is perfect, the finish to the paintwork is excellent and every drawer and cupboard work perfectly. I would highly recommend working with Elisa on a kitchen design. I’m sure it will be a success!

- Mrs N (East Finchley) 

Working with Elisa was an absolute delight. We felt comfortable with her from the start, and she really helped us create our dream kitchen. She was also always quick to respond to our queries along the way and even went out of her way to advise us on more general aspects of our extension when we weren’t sure about colour schemes and floorplans. We absolutely love our kitchen. The design, the colours, the quality of the materials and the functionality are all great, and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve had many compliments on it, and would wholeheartedly recommend Elisa to friends and family. 

- Mrs G (High Barnet)  

Elisa’s service was impeccable. She held our hand from the design stage, to the fitting stage and beyond. Her design ideas were unique and very much aligned with our vision – she understood the brief perfectly! We are extremely happy with our finished kitchen, for which we have already received many compliments! We would recommend Elisa every time. 

- Mrs P (Hampstead Garden Suburb) 
The entire experience working with Elisa was great. She internalised our vision and guided us through the whole design process and ensured her design matched our requirements. Great communication throughout the project, nothing was too much trouble. Elisa has been super supportive from start to finish, and a real pleasure to work with. The quality of the kitchen and the fitting is exceptional. We are so lucky to have found her. I cannot recommend ECKD highly enough. 

- Mrs K (Alexandra Palace) 
We love our new kitchen which was designed very creatively by Elisa. The quality of all the materials is excellent and Elisa worked with us throughout the project from the design stage all the way through to completion and went over and beyond her remit by managing part of the building project. We are very grateful to her for that. Elisa was always on hand to answer all of our questions and tweak the designs whenever we changed our mind and we would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone looking for a new kitchen. 

- Mr O (Enfield) 
Working with Elisa made a huge difference to our kitchen renovation and the final result, which we love! Her innovative solutions in the design phase allowed us to overcome some difficult constraints we had with the space that other high street kitchen companies were not able to solve. Elisa’s attention to detail, expertise and experience and her focus on both functionality and appearance added so much value to the process and helped us create the kitchen we were after. She oversaw the ordering and installation and everything was delivered and installed as planned and at the highest standard. It was a delight to collaborate with Elisa and we would recommend her to anyone looking to do a kitchen renovation. 

- Mrs H (Muswell Hill) 
Thank you for your brilliant design and eye for detail! 

- Mrs W (Waltham Abbey) 
I am so thrilled with the kitchen, I can’t thank you enough. Your patience, advice and good humour have seen me through (as well as counselling services of course!). I can’t wait for everyone to see it! 

- Mrs C (Finchley) 
Elisa was a real pleasure to work with throughout the entire project. She was engaging, enthusiastic and always contactable which was key given the project was done during the difficult global pandemic where most contact had to be done in a virtual environment.
Elisa’s attitude was always positive and focused on what could be incorporated successfully within the available space. She had fantastic and original ideas and brought them to life through the use of clever computer technology to help us visualise the end result. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she was more than willing to adapt the design as many times as required to ensure we were satisfied with the end product. The result was a truly fabulous kitchen, maximising the space with the creation of a double island giving fantastic storage and changing the way in which my family and I utilise the kitchen. It also created a unique feature to a traditional kitchen style and one that is commented upon by all that see it. Further, she also planned our utility room, creating a design which was practical and affordable yet incredibly spacious. She really did turn our dream plans and ideas into reality and I can't thank her enough! Highly recommend! 

- Mrs M (Tadworth, Surrey) 

From the beginning to end of the project, Elisa was really super helpful and managed to get what was in my head into the perfect kitchen. We all love our new space and Elisa was instrumental in creating and project managing our new space – thank you so much!  

- Mrs B (Friern Barnet) 

Elisa was a complete godsend for us when we had lost our way with our own kitchen design. From our first meeting, she put us at ease with her calm and friendly manner and individualised way of working.  She has a wonderfully empathetic way of keeping in tune with her clients, quickly understanding what it is they want and almost magically coming up with the perfect bespoke design for them. Elisa has been extremely generous with her time, happy to go on tweaking our design, playing with different ideas and images on her computer programme until we were completely satisfied. She had a solution to all the problems we had encountered, finding ingenious ways to maximise the space we had to best effect. She helped to guide us through the many decisions of colour and unit choices, countertop and sink materials, taps, handles, appliances etc with the same patience and enthusiasm and creative flair. It’s obvious that Elisa loves her job as well as being so talented at what she does. She is a perfectionist in her attention to detail and comprehensive approach. During the installation of the kitchen she came every day to make sure everything was going smoothly and was as attentive to this process as she was the initial designing. Elisa gives 110% and we thank our lucky stars we found her. We could not be more delighted with our kitchen. 

- Dr C (East Finchley) 
A friend of ours recently had her kitchen done.  It was so nice we asked who had done it and she recommended Elisa.  She was brilliant throughout the process.  We have never done a kitchen before and she took all the stress out of it.  She gave hugely helpful advice on where to place items and now we really do have our dream kitchen!  Elisa was very patient with us and gave us lots of helpful tips. She is a pleasure to work with and really did make project kitchen much more manageable. 

- Dr H (West Ealing) 
From our first call with Elisa she demonstrated a depth of knowledge and enthusiasm we found very reassuring.  She was prompt in replying to our queries and came up with further helpful suggestions throughout the design process.  She was also patient with the changes required as the build progressed.  Elisa was able to speak knowledgeably to the builders about the practical requirements of the kitchen installation and provided detailed documentation to assist with this.  We are delighted with our new kitchen and would highly recommend Elisa’s kitchen design service. 

- Mrs M (Streatham Hill) 

Elisa was recommended to me by a friend whose kitchen I loved!  Right from my first visit to her studio, I was impressed with her knowledge, enthusiasm and warm manner. She had many ideas but listened carefully to my requirements. Once I had decided, she kept me informed at every stage and was on hand to sort out any issues.  The end result is exactly what I wanted; so thank you Elisa. 

- Mrs A (East Finchley) 

Elisa was a joy to work with. She was patient and easy to work with; meticulous in her planning and had an endless stream of great ideas and creative solutions for every aspect of the project. She worked brilliantly with our builder and made herself available throughout the project to answer his and our questions. We are absolutely delighted with our finished kitchen and cannot recommend her highly enough.

- Mrs P (Mill Hill) 

We have just renovated our home and now that the kitchen is complete, I wanted to give praise to Elisa was who was instrumental in helping me design my kitchen.  I am delighted with the end result and highly recommend her.  Elisa understood my needs really well and this was great when it came to planning.  I had been to deVOL and their planning wasn’t anywhere near as intuitive.  Elisa was excellent, way more helpful and her product is just as good as theirs.

- Mrs S (Finchley) 

The design stage was a delight. We had some basic ideas and Elisa was sympathetic to them, then offered ways to create and improve on them. She had practical suggestions, created 3D plans and a host of samples so we could visualise what it would look like. What we wanted was someone to be helpful, supportive, offer advice and positive suggestions and alternatives when required, without forcing us into anything. That’s exactly what Elisa provided. The result is a kitchen we are totally happy with. The materials we settled on – with Elisa’s guidance – look great. The layout is practical and ergonomically first class. 

- Mr S (Arsenal) 

Elisa is great to work with, always very responsive to queries and quick to produce new CAD drawings following changes to the design. Her garden showroom is a relaxing environment in which to discuss ideas and view samples of colours & materials. She is also on the ball with technical advice about appliances and in-unit storage devices (eg corner optimisation shelves). When it comes to installation, detailed plans are produced and Elisa ensures the plans are implemented correctly. The finished kitchen design evolved as a collaboration. We incorporated a full-stave walnut worktop with painted contemporary handleless units. I would not have considered the high-end coloured glass splashbacks which really set the design off beautifully. On top of all that Elisa is very easy to get along with. It looks great, Thanks Elisa!

- Mr C (Southgate) 

It has been a great experience working with Elisa on our new kitchen. Elisa is a good designer, and she brought lots of expertise, ideas and technical know-how to the kitchen design, as well as listening and accommodating our requirements in ways that made sense. She recommended and sourced appliances and other suppliers where needed. Elisa was available throughout the design and build, including site visits, and she worked with our builder, explaining the design and helping to hold them to it. Most of all she is nice to work with. My wife and I enjoyed the experience. 

- Dr E (Haringey) 

Working with Elisa was fantastic. Her ability to listen, brainstorm together and come up with ideas we hadn’t thought of was really valuable.  And I really appreciated her guidance and knowledge to steer us in a good direction when planning our kitchen. It was great to have someone on this journey who is calm, trustworthy and reliable.  Thank you! 

- Mr M (North Greenwich) 

I would highly recommend Elisa for helping to design your kitchen project. She worked tirelessly to ensure that we got what we wanted and nothing was too much trouble. She is extremely friendly, dedicated to her work and nothing was too much trouble. in addition to the pure design of the kitchen which was excellent and very practical she also offered very helpful ideas on where to source all the goods we needed (e.g. bar stools, work tops, appliances, the kitchen). It was unbelievably helpful and saved us a lot of time. The service is extremely bespoke, and is nothing like the kind of service you would get from a big designer / supplier. Everybody should use Elisa to help with their kitchen project – it will make your life much easier and you will end up with a great product and also at reasonable prices! 

- Mr S (Arsenal) 
I was lucky enough to hear about Elisa from a friend. Elisa had designed a gorgeous kitchen for her. I wasn’t quite sure where to start with our own project but Elisa was fabulous. Great ideas, inclusive of our ideas and wishes, responsive and an absolute pleasure to work with. The kitchen is finished and I couldn’t be happier. 

- Mrs P (Dulwich) 

When redoing our house we viewed many kitchens from many suppliers. We were overwhelmed and probably even more confused then when we started. On recommendation we found Elisa and we didn’t look back. I can honestly say that Elisa’s enthusiasm, energy and vision was like a breath of fresh air. She was so patient as she discussed possibilities and ideas to build a functional, family friendly kitchen to fit around my needs as well as in the space we had. She has an extensive range of materials and colours which also made it easier to visualise the final result. As we worked through options, and changed the design multiple times, her patience was unwavering. When the units arrived for installation, I was blown away. The quality of the drawers, woodwork, structure was outstanding, comparable to your high-end designs, but at a substantially more affordable price mark. Our builders installed the units, with Elisa on hand to provide support. She didn’t let her eye of the project through to the end. The kitchen are of premium quality, the craftsmanship, from door to drawer. I can highly recommend Elisa’s designs, and the quality of kitchens you get with her. After over 4 years post instillation, the kitchen still looks like new. Thank you Elisa. 

- Mrs A (North Finchley) 

Elisa was extremely professional from start to finish. We are really happy with her kitchen design and she gave us practical ideas which we would never have come up with! I have continued to recommend her to our friends and family as she was a delight to work with and we are very happy with her work, 

- Dr T (Whetstone) 

Elisa is and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the first meeting to the last she was always professional, patient, realistic and reliable. She has great understanding of the different equipment, layouts and designs available but she also listened to my ideas and needs to ensure that our kitchen was suited for our family and life. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elisa to my friends, in fact I have already! 

- Mrs S (Muswell Hill) 

All my adult life I dreamed that one day I would have my dream kitchen. Elisa helped us make our dreams come true. The finished product is better than we ever imagined. Elisa was wonderful to work with as she designed and guided us beautifully to this wonderful traditional but modern finish. 

- Mrs N (Whetstone) 

We are very pleased with our new kitchen, it’s just the look and more that we were looking for. Elisa listened and understood our design priorities and was instrumental in working out how to combine our colour scheme and tiles together as well as using her design research knowledge to come up with an alternative design for the extractor hood. The kitchen itself is solid and any of the minor number of defects have been replaced with no hesitation. 

- Mrs B (Finchley Central) 

I used Elisa to design and supply my kitchen. From our first meeting I was so impressed with her enthusiasm and knowledge of all things kitchen. She was endlessly patient and good humoured as I moved from one colour scheme to another. Her advice on layout was incredibly practical whilst still being aesthetically pleasing. When we came to delivery and installation she went above and beyond in making sure things went smoothly. I cannot recommend her highly enough and am very happy to speak to anyone who would like a verbal confirmation of this recommendation.
