We are absolutely delighted with the kitchen and the furniture that the Piqu team have provided for us. From the very beginning the experience has been excellent and its remained consistent throughout the whole process. Adrian invests time in his customers from the initial consultation phase to really understand your requirements and then remains available and present throughout the whole duration of the kitchen fitting. Everything is about delivering a great service as well as high quality products. I felt we really worked in partnership and it was a joy to have them all in our home. So much so we have continued to work further on other joinery furniture requirements which have been great additions and we are now looking at a 2nd project in another property. 5 star recommendation very well deserved!
Our experience with Piqu was fantastic from start to finish. Adrian was so friendly and helpful, he is an expert in kitchen design and he was so patient with us all the way through the process. All the tradesman that came to our house were such friendly and respectful people and extremely good workers! The personal approach that we got from Adrian and his team was exactly what we was looking for. Our new kitchen is everything we wished for and more, we cannot thank you enough!
When looking for our designer, we stumbled across Piqu amongst the mass of options. We looked at the portfolio and immediately decided that we couldn’t afford it (obviously guessing on price). We continued the search,
but kept coming to Piqu. Eventually we thought that an initial consultation couldn’t hurt and at least it would give us some additional ideas. From the moment we met Adrian (over a Zoom call), we found his deep
expertise, coupled with a real desire to understand our needs a breath of fresh air amongst his peers. Adrian was very quickly able to internalise our vision and carefully (but resolutely) guide us towards a detailed
kitchen design that was almost perfect from the first draft. His knowledge of the products that he works with (in this case a Ballerina kitchen), was exceptional - coming up with extremely clever solutions to challenges
with our specific situation.
In the period following the creation of the detailed design but before installation, we experienced a large number of hiccups. Our builders experienced delays, the steels ended up in a slightly different place from the original design and the glazing suppliers threw in a few curveballs too. In each instance, Adrian was able to juggle and manage these external dependencies with his trademark calm and understanding approach.
The fitting of the kitchen was an exciting culmination of all the hard work. Due to various factors, the house was still very much a building site but Adrian’s installation team (who were extremely skilful, knowledgable and friendly) worked around the mess and were able to put in the kitchen in a beautiful way. Their craftsmanship shone through as they integrated the “standard” elements of the kitchen to fit around the mechanical and electrical elements.
After installation, Adrian was incredibly proactive on fixing snagging, including helping with elements that were actually nothing to do with him, but nonetheless needed to be corrected for us to enjoy the space.
The finished product speaks for itself. The pictures really don’t do it justice and we are so happy with the finished product. It has proven durability and quality in the first 5months of usage and we always feel that Adrian is there if we need anything. The layout is frankly perfect and all of Adrian’s wisdom shines through each day when we use the spaces.
We have already recommended Piqu to several friends, with one of them starting works imminently. We will continue to do so and recommend everyone here to reach out to him and schedule an initial chat. Thanks to Adrian, Karen and all the team at Piqu for their hard work in getting us our dream kitchens (until the next house ;-) )
We have loved working with Adrian and the team at Piqu from start to finish. The design that Adrian came up with was different to all the other designs we had seen and we instantly fell in love with it. Adrian took a long time to understand our family and how we used our kitchen and we think the end result works really well for us. Adrian was also very conscious of our budget at all times and would always offer several options for us to consider which allowed us to splurge in some areas and save in others. We are really happy with our finished kitchen and would not hesitate to recommend working with Piqu.
Thank you, Adrian and Piqu for helping us create our dream kitchen in our forever home. You helped us shape our initial and rather vague ideas into something truly beautiful. Adrian’s eye for design and the little details are unbelievably good. He helps you see and then realise the art of the impossible and you won’t be able to stop yourself falling in love with what he creates. The team who installed the kitchen are also someone of the best craftspeople we have worked with after many years of house renovations. They were the nicest people to have in our home during lockdown and were so considerate, friendly and thoughtful. Their attention to detail is extraordinary, measuring in millimetres to ensure absolutely everything was perfect and just as it should be. We really can’t recommend @piqu enough if you are considering designing your dream kitchen. Adrian really does make dreams come true! Thank you!
We were looking for a kitchen in a space that hadn't been built so couldn't be measured and spent a long time speaking to kitchen designers. Then we met Adrian and the team at Piqu who made what we wanted rather than what we were told was possible. Throughout Adrian and the team were fantastic, coming up with great new ideas, adapting to the changes we needed to make and ensuring our kitchen is the centerpiece if our house. We couldn't recommend highly enough! And a extra thank you to Lee who fitted it for us. He had an incredible attention to detail and ensured everything was perfect!.
Adrian has been a pleasure to work with. I'm an Architect and he has completed 2 kitchens for projects that we have work on - one modern and one traditional. His design knowledge helped create the perfect layout and his studio has a wide selection of materials to choose from - this is great to take clients to so they can see and feel the materials they are choosing. As with many projects there were a few issues to resolve on site but Adrian was very prompt to deal with these quickly and efficiently. I'd certainly work with Adrian again with my future clients.
I can highly recommend Adrian at Piqu. I went to him with a firm idea of what I wanted but not a huge budget, prob the worst combination! He was amazing - went through every single tiny detail, advised on lighting, answered my endless questions, and made sure I was spending the money where I needed to and reducing costs where it didn't matter so much. He came up with so many original ideas even going as far as recreating one idea we had out of cardboard on one visit to the showroom. He was great fun to work with too which made the whole thing so much more enjoyable.
When it came to the build, even though my builders were installing the kitchen, Adrian turned up on the day of delivery and helped sort out all the boxes. He discussed every detail with my builder to make sure he knew where to find everything and as a result there were absolutely no issues.
I now have a fabulous kitchen and I am so delighted with it. Thank you so much!
We looked at a number of alternatives before deciding to use Piqu to design and instal our new kitchen. We were having major building work carried out on our house which resulted in a slightly awkward L-shape room for our kitchen and we were struggling with how best to design the layout. Adrian came up with a number of fresh ideas including an imaginative angular hob area (which helped to separate the cooking and eating areas in the kitchen) and a clever use of tall units to help mask the load-bearing pillars in the room. Adrian was patience personified when it came to the minutiae of the design and the choosing of the various appliances and we are extremely happy with the quality (of the workmanship, the units and the appliances) and the overall look of the end product. In fact we are so pleased that we are seeking Piqu's services for some further work.
Adrian was really responsive and attentive during the design phase and extremely patient whilst we changed our minds over fundamental principles. Following that, he and the team have been brilliant in the delivery and fitting and even after-sales care has been great. We are really happy with the end result, both from a design and usability perspective.
Adrian and his team were absolutely brilliant. We had a basic schematic idea of what we wanted in our kitchen and dining room and Adrian helped us turn our ideas into an amazingly practical and beautiful set of rooms, helping us choose materials and finishes and sourcing the appliances we wanted.
His workers were easy to get on with, very skilled with a really good eye for detail and always cleaned up after themselves each day.
Best of all, the eight week project came in on time and on budget.
I cannot recommend Piqu highly enough! From the very beginning they went the extra mile, their inspirational ideas, the professionalism, and the support during the whole process could not have gone any better. This was a challenging design and the just got it, understood exactly what we were trying to achieve and delivered above and beyond expectations! They made a difficult time smoother and I am so happy with the results, it’s breathtaking! Thank you especially to Adrian and Louis for their never ending patience and support.
If you are looking for an extremely professional team to take care of your every need for your Kitchen Project then Piqu is the company for you!!
Right from the absolute start of planning Adrian was so knowledgeable and helpful. He was able to take our initial ideas and add so much more that we hadn’t even thought of. As soon as the plans were finalised his communication with us was faultless keeping us updated of delivery times. Due to the complexity of our build we had a couple of delays, this was no trouble to Adrian and his team. He was able to rearrange delivery and installation ensuring that we still had a working kitchen for Christmas celebrations. Tim the project manager was amazing! Again nothing was too much trouble, so polite, so helpful and kept in contact at all times.
I would not hesitate in recommending Piqu to anyone that is looking for a kitchen that has the WOW factor.
We were delighted with the products and service Adrian provided. He was proactive, professional, focused on providing the best service and experience possible and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Piqu.
It has been a real pleasure to work with Adrian and indeed the whole team at Piqu. From the very start when we stumbled across Adrian’s showroom at Micron Home Improvements when researching glazing for our sliding doors, we knew we were in good hands. Having tried several different independent kitchen designers before meeting Adrian, we were getting a bit fed up and beginning to think it was impossible to get a kitchen layout in the space we were creating that would actually work!
The kitchen has now been installed for a couple of months and not only does it look absolutely stunning and is everything we could have wished for and more – it really works from a design point of view and is brilliant for us to spend time in as a family and when we are entertaining. There is nothing that we would change and that is a testament to Adrian’s great skill as a designer and immense patience when dealing with my numerous questions and long emails! His attention to detail certainly matched my own and nothing was overlooked nor too much trouble throughout the whole process (from his initial visit before the builders had even started to his last visit – supervising the installation of our beautiful painted glass splashback) – Adrian and indeed Tim were always attentive to our needs and really cared about the end result. During the process he was always available for advice and suggestions (and even helped with other aspects of the build such the lighting).
Would wholeheartedly recommend if you are looking for an extremely high quality kitchen with a bespoke service at a really reasonable price. Thanks Piqu for delivering our dream kitchen and for the wonderful first rate service – we absolutely love it!
Our entire kitchen project was a one of knocking down walls, installing RSJ's, implementing soundproofing and a bunch of other stuff we'd not exactly signed up for at the start. When it came to choosing the actual kitchen (the fun bit) our decision making had been worn quite low.
Luckily Adrian at Piqu was amazing and patient at guiding us through the whole process. From kickstarting things at his showroom where he spent the afternoon taking us through all the fittings and finishes, through to helping us find the right appliances and genuinely sourcing the most cost effective solution where we needed it.
He’s such a nice guy and it’s actually quite amazing that he managed to see the whole thing through as everything our side took about 5 times longer that it was meant too. But he did and stayed committed right to the very end liaising with our builder on the phone to discuss the fitting.
Now that it’s all in, the kitchen itself is exactly what we wanted. A beautiful bespoke German kitchen - very simple but also feels like a work of art. It’s been worth the wait and it’s great to know that we’re going to have this now for years and years. Very happy customers.
Our experience with Piqu, Adrian and Steve, was first rate. Despite providing a top bespoke service there was none of the sales pressure or arrogance that we experienced with other similar services. We took our time making our decision, for a number of reasons, and the relaxed approach from Adrian really made the difference.
They also provided a much higher quality product with a number of additional benefits and a bespoke service at a really reasonable price. We looked at a number of high street stores and the price differential was minimal with a noticeable upgrade in quality. Adrian and Steve were attentive to our needs without trying to push a particular product or outcome. They were also able to help us source a great stone for our worktops at a really reasonable price.
The fitting was smooth and Adrian has been on call ever since able to answer any questions for us. The whole experience has been first rate we would really recommend Piqu
We could not have been happier with the quality of kitchen installed and the service provided from Adrian Graves and Piqu kitchens.
From start to end Adrian has worked with such enthusiasm and skill to design and provide us with exactly what we wanted. At the beginning, Adrian worked really hard designing a space and a kitchen which would work for us. During the process he was always available for advice and suggestions. He even helped with other aspects of our build when we needed advice. The installation process was excellent. And the result .... we have a wonderful kitchen which has been brilliantly designed. We are delighted with every aspect of the kitchen.
Throughout the process Adrian has shown immense patience with our hopeless indecision, he is extremely funny but of course of greater importance he is a very skilled and dedicated professional.
Thank you, we are delighted!
I am very pleased to recommend Adrian Graves, Piqu and the kitchens they design and install.
We selected Adrian's company after visiting his showroom and those of a number of London's bespoke kitchen designers. What impressed us most about Adrian was his level of enthusiasm and customer service during our initial meeting. I am pleased to say this high level of customer service remained reassuringly constant throughout design, installation and also where we have required after sales service
As relative novices to kitchen planning, our kitchen design took three meetings to finalise. During this phase Adrian built upon our requirements and helped realise a kitchen that delivered far more than we had envisaged and has now become a stunning family centre to our home.
As we approached installation, Adrian liaised and coordinated the activities our our builder, plumber and electrician to ensure these met the requirements of his fitters and the agreed schedule.
A superb kitchen, planned and installed with the customer’s needs always put first. We will definitely use your services again.
Piqu had been recommended to me by a friend who’s kitchen I had admired. From my first contact to the completion of the kitchen I have been so pleased with the wonderful service, nothing was too much trouble. I had looked at a few other companies and what impressed me about Piqu was the attention to detail. I would not have thought of the design that they came up with and although I wanted high spec appliances the prices I paid were cheaper than internet prices. I cannot thank Piqu enough for my beautiful kitchen.
Adrian and the team did a splendid job to design and create our kitchen.
We came to Adrian with a number of ideas about how to use the space, things we liked, and didn't. He very quickly came up with the right design, based on his extensive experience and skills to understand his clients.
We worked together on how each area would be used, colours, materials, appliances, which Adrian translated into clear 3D drawings and detailed specifications for regular and custom-built elements.
The room was later featured in Beautiful Kitchen Magazine.
As an Interior Design company, we are always striving to seek and work with the most highly professional, personable, reliable and creative companies we possibly can as, by association, they will represent our company brand and ultimately our reputation with our clients.
I was delighted to come across Adrian Graves and the team at Piqu as they have certainly ticked all of those boxes.
Since then we have worked extremely successfully together on a number of client projects and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Piqu to other designers and property owners.
The quality of the collections they offer are excellent and there's a range to suit most budgets, which is very helpful to those of us working on varied and multiple projects. Adrian's knowledge is also very extensive.
The service offered by Adrian and the team is extremely friendly, responsive and professional. Piqu have been a joy to work with and we're currently discussing future projects.
I have worked with Adrian over the last 7 years on a number of kitchen projects as part of full interior design projects. I have always found his designs match, both the budget and great designs, which add a little something different. His approach is thoughtful, businesslike, but also very approachable and happy for him to deal with and meet clients. He always adds something to the mix. I would always recommend Adrian for any kitchen requirements.
I have used Adrian / Piqu on a number of projects (Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms). Adrian has incredible vision and delivers amazing ideas. His workers are first class and deliver incredible attention to detail. Adrian's first class service does not finish at the completion of the job. He is always available to resolve any issues that may arise. I would not hesitate in recommending Adrian for your project.
