Customer Reviews

Thank you so much for our fabulous new kitchen which we absolutely love - it has transformed our daily lives.  From the initial design stage and Rona's invaluable tips through to Anthony's recommendation on materials and attention to detail during building works and installation, everything was covered and went smoothly. 

We felt we received a more personal service from you than if we had chosen a high street retailer, indeed you accommodated one or two extra quirks that we wanted but were unable to secure elsewhere. We had a limited budget which you were able to work with and beyond, as we were surprised and delighted that we were able to include granite work tops! 

If we were to require a new kitchen elsewhere in the future, we would not even bother going anywhere else, we would just come straight to you. I would recommend you to anyone who is thinking of getting a new kitchen.

Kind regards

Ginny and John Staddon

From the moment I met Anthony and Rona I knew they would be the perfect collaborators in designing my kitchen.  I had a strong idea of what I wanted and within minutes Rona had picked up the vibe and was on board!  They were thorough and perfectionist in every aspect of the design and took time to consider all elements of the kitchen design, not just the fitted units.  Anthony is almost as obsessive as I am about line and we had many a discussion about the aesthetic and the best possible materials to use.  

I cannot recommend them more highly and cannot fault any part of their service from design to installation, and their ability to deliver the best possible solution whatever your budget.

My kitchen is still much admired by all who visit and I can only thank Antrona for their fabulous service and attention to detail which has made it so wonderful.  Even now, two years later, it still looks as good as new!

I have always tried to support small local businesses and when my wife and I decided to replace our kitchen of 23 years, we noticed an advert in the Horsley Directory for Antrona Kitchen Design. We sought quotes from Antrona and another local firm.  We chose Antrona as the cost of the units was significantly lower without any apparent loss of quality. The kitchen is now complete and our decision has been entirely vindicated. We are thrilled with it. Anthony and Rona have provided a personalised service throughout, participating in site meetings with builder, plumber and electrician, visiting tile shops, ordering appliances and always turning up at the house on the right day and at the right time!

The standard of workmanship is very high and Anthony’s attention to detail is meticulous. Anthony’s and Rona’s advice with regards to the  design of the kitchen, the types of units and cupboards, and colours has proved exemplary and the overall effect is outstanding. If the project has taken a little longer than predicted, this is not down to Antrona but rather to the building work and floor tiling being somewhat more complicated then envisaged.

In summary we are very pleased we went with our original intuitive decision in choosing Antrona and we wish Anthony and Rona every success in building their business.

Our decision to redo our kitchen was not planned and therefore not really budgeted for. We had gone to a number of well known kitchen companies to get quotes but we were never completely happy with the choice, quality or hidden costs that appeared in their final quotes. 

We knew of Antrona, having heard some very positive feedback on them. We decided to ask them to quote, it was the best decision we could have made!  Their quotes were similar in price to what we already had but the quality and value was far superior.

Anthony and Rona make a great team and their attention to detail and workmanship is exemplary.  From the minute we agreed to go ahead with them, we knew we would be delighted with the final result.  They really picked up on what we wanted, advising on the design and materials to achieve our perfect kitchen.  

In short they take a huge amount of pride in what they do and they care.  

We wish them every success in their future business and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Antrona came to us highly recommended from friends who were previous clients.  Anthony and Rona were an absolute delight to work with, so friendly and enthusiastic, and they sensed immediately what we were after and came up with creative design solutions to all our practical queries. We are delighted with our new kitchen and it was incredibly good value considering the level of design detail and personal attention involved.

Martin & Janet O’Hara, East Lane, West Horsley

Dear Rona and Anthony,

We want to say a huge ‘Thank You’ for our beautiful kitchen.  We are delighted with it - just so perfect for our new home.  Having had our house built for us, we knew from the start of the building that we would need a kitchen which would have the ‘wow’ factor and ours certainly has!

Many thanks Anthony for your excellent craftsmanship and for Rona’s beautiful painting.  Such a pleasure to have you both working here as well.

Our kitchen is always much admired - once again, our thanks.

Yours sincerely,

Rosemary and Laurie Tribe

Antrona has built us the kitchen of our dreams.  Even before we decided to place an order Rona and Anthony helped us design the whole space including the colour scheme.  Anthony loves his job and it shows in his high standard of workmanship, particularly with our oak worktops which are fabulous.  Above all, Anthony kept us in touch with everything that was going on so there were no surprises other than the realisation that the final job exceeded our expectations.

Design specification and build were on time and within budget and last minute changes due to structural problems were handled smoothly and professionally.  I have no hesitation in recommending Antrona to anyone wishing to have a rather special kitchen.

Attention to detail is second to none.  Creative thinking.  Adaptability.  Punctuality.  Excellent communication.  Masterful craftsmanship.  Lovely people.  Almost too good to be true but no... Anthony and Rona are living proof that perfection does exist!!  It’s just a shame that we only had room for the one kitchen as we would have happily used them again elsewhere in the house!


Anon,  East Horsley

We couldn’t be more delighted with our Antrona Kitchen! We have lived in our home for 30 years without doing anything to it other than add things!  So deciding to create a new and larger kitchen was massive for us, finally having saved some money to do so!  Antrona were amazing from the start, working completely within our budget (almost to the penny), creating designs that worked both practically and aesthetically.  Their communication with us was excellent and we felt in control of the whole venture, whilst also being in the hands of experts.  We were able to tweak their suggestions and add our own quirkiness.

When it came to installation, Antrona were extremely efficient and on the first day, between my leaving for work in the morning and returning in the evening, most of it was already in place.  It was an incredible transformation.  Their attention to detail is superb and we could not be more thrilled with the end product.

Every time I go into our new kitchen, I am delighted and say “I just love my kitchen”, much to the increasing annoyance of my family!

And on top of all that, Anthony and Rona are fabulous people to work with, mixing informality with laughter and many fascinating conversations along the way!  They will be our first dinner guests in our new kitchen!

Alex and James Chislett, Downside

We are absolutely delighted with our Antrona supplied kitchen.  After seeking out several quotes from a range of kitchen suppliers we felt that Anthony and Rona were the right choice to provide us with the kind of customer service we wanted and fortunately they proved us right.  Not only were they very cost competitive, they paid such care and attention to our requirements, from the design through to installation.  They guided us towards a lovely quality and practical kitchen, which met our budget requirements and blew us away at the same time.  The pressure was completely taken off us in the delivery process as they ensured all units supplied were faultless.  What really made the difference was the invaluable advice they gave us as our extension was being built.  The fitting and the finishing is such a high standard, which is regularly commented on by our visitors.

Michelle and Colin Rosen, Effingham Junction

Dear Antrona,

We are writing to say thank you for the professionalism and thoroughness shown in the design and fitting of our kitchen.  Of all the stages of the building work the kitchen build was the least traumatic by a long way.

In addition, the quality of materials is very good, the layout is well designed, and the cost was much more competitive than that of one of the very well known high street kitchen designers.

We would therefore highly recommend Antrona.


Tom and Nicola Stewart

Together Rona and Anthony have created a fantastic kitchen for us.  They understood what we wanted and showed us how to achieve it, working hard to help us stay within our budget.  Stylish and beautifully executed, we now have a truly lovely kitchen which is a great space in which to work.  Efficient, friendly service from start to finish!

Louise Thompson,  West Horsley

Antrona are a friendly and down-to-earth team who worked tirelessly and within budget to give us the kitchen we wanted.  We would highly recommend them.

Sarah Dougherty, Effingham

Originally recommended to me by a friend.  From start to finish, Anthony and Rona (Antrona) provided outstanding service.  They are very passionate about what they do and their attention to detail is second to none.  Rona provided great design advice and Anthony fitted the kitchen himself (apart from the worktops when he brought in specialist contractors).  We have ended up with a high quality kitchen which I'm thrilled with! Thank you Antrona!

Alex Bailey, West Horsley

Helped by them just being down the road from me, Anthony and Rona made the whole experience of getting a new kitchen a very easy and enjoyable process.  I was combining getting a new kitchen with an extension and they worked incredibly well with my builders to ensure everything fitted and was available on time.  Rona came up with a couple of different designs to start off the whole process of what it could look like and was incredibly patient and helpful with my slow decision making over the colour of the kitchen.  They were able to suggest adaptations to help everything fit into budget and were very attentive to every last detail to ensure the kitchen was perfect.

Highly recommended.

Katy Berry, West Horsley

We know a number of friends who used Antrona Kitchen Design, all of whom said that Antrona cared about the kitchen, almost like they were fitting their own kitchen.  We were having our whole house rebuilt, so everything was being done against set budgets and Antrona listened and understood what we were looking for and helped us arrive at an elegant and beautiful kitchen that is also clearly functional.  We initially  steered away from the main high street kitchen companies because of the horror stories around some fittings.  I have to say that Anthony cares deeply about how the kitchen is fitted and undertakes all the installation himself except the specialism of stone counter fitting, but he still manages and contracts this service to ensure it meets with his own exacting standards.  I would say to anyone thinking about using Antrona, pick up the phone and meet with them, you won't be disappointed!

Gideon and Vicky Davenport, West Horsley

Attention to detail, creative design and craftsmanship are the watchwords for this company. Having had a new space created for a large open plan kitchen diner we were keen to maximise its potential and create a new welcoming hub for all the family.  Anthony and Rona provided us with detailed plans and images for several designs until we decided on which one suited our needs.  The choice of cabinetry and colour options was fantastic.  There was also a wide variety of work surface and door/drawer handle options to choose from.  The end result is a beautiful ash kitchen in pale grey and dark slate blue colours, with quartz work surfaces in a contemporary shaker design.  We couldn't recommend them more highly!

Helen and Anthony Hughes, East Horsley

Antrona worked with us from the very start to design our kitchen and really helped to make the best use of the space we had. They were brilliant at recommending styles and materials to suit our budget - and were always on tap to answer any questions we had.  We have been really pleased with both the design and workmanship that went into our kitchen- and their aftercare service has been exceptional.
