I found Johns details online, from the first conversation i felt comfortable and confident. We already ordered the kitchen we wanted, but after John’s first visit he managed to find us another supplier saving us £100’s! He managed to fit our kitchen within a few days. His work is professional, clean and above all he is a nice guy! Would highly recommend John to anyone. Thanks again John!! From the Astound Team”

“Exceptionally happy with John’s workmanship. I Would highly recommend using him. Not just because he’s clearly very experienced at fitting kitchens but also because he’s a bloody lovely bloke who was incredibly considerate and respectful towards our home and my family.”

“We are absolutely thrilled with our new kitchen! John was excellent – his communication was fantastic and we received lots of update photos whilst he was working as we were abroad at the time, so we could rest assured all was going to plan. We would definitely recommend him to others wishing to have a new kitchen!”

“We are so happy we used John & Urban Refurb on our recent kitchen refurbishment. He removed our existing kitchen, fully fitted a new kitchen, plumbed, tiled, plastered and painted, with every aspect finished to perfection. His work is is exemplary with an excellent eye for detail and finish. John is very professional and respectful of the living space, leaving it clean and tidy at the end of each day. John is very friendly and personable and has a wealth of knowledge. We really appreciated his advice and suggestions throughout the job. We look forward to working with John again on future projects.”

“We would highly recommend John. He was professional, friendly and efficient, no job was ever too much for him. His colleagues were also very helpful and hardworking. They made a hard job appear easy! We’re very pleased with our new kitchen, it has more than fulfilled our original expectations.”


Claire Anderson ★★★★★

“John made what could have been a distruptive process easy and pain free. He, and all the people he works with were professional, quality tradesman and a pleasure to have around. John always looked for solutions for us and was very concious of keeping costs down. We have a young toddler and another baby on the way so he was really sensitive to this, making sure we had things up and running as soon as possible. We are delighted with the results. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.”


Rose Heatley ★★★★★

“I’m very pleased with the new kitchen fitted for me by John and his skilled colleagues. He made a couple of useful suggestions which were very helpful, and was interested, committed and reliable. It’s great to meet such a pleasant ‘can-do’ attitude, with all the skills to deliver.”


Charlotte Collins ★★★★★

I would definitely recommend John. I was extremely pleased with how his work on my kitchen and bathroom turned out. From the onset, he was enthusiastic about the project and confident that he could deal with the challenges it presented. He came up with several ingenious ideas that saved considerable time and money. He was honest, realistic, really keen and very helpful indeed.

“We found John of Urban Refurb by sheer luck after a search online for local kitchen fitters. He gave us a great quote to refurb the kitchen in our top floor flat – and we’ve been super impressed with him and our resulting new kitchen. He’s done an amazing job, working around various problems as they arose, always suggesting solutions with a minimum of drama. As well as his own kitchen fitting skills, John’s got a portfolio of brilliant trade contacts meaning any plumbing, gas work, electrics and anything else that needs doing is done by fellow local professionals to exacting specs as and when required. And here’s the thing – John isn’t simply a great kitchen fitter but a pleasure to have around – he’s considerate, tidy (he’d clean up and hoover before leaving at the end of a working day) and totally trustworthy. We wouldn’t hesitate to get him to do more work around our flat. In short, my wife and I can’t recommend him highly (or thank him) enough.”

Sonia Panchal ★★★★★

“John did an amazing job fitting a new IKEA kitchen for me. He provided helpful guidance and some top tips throughout the process. It was a challenging job (1930s building, small kitchen, uneven surfaces + flooring) but he was very resourceful and thought problems through and provided practical solutions. It was a collaborative experience. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family + friends.”


Charli Scouller ★★★★★

“John has been brilliant to work with and I absolutely love my new kitchen. John helped me when I was in a bind (I needed the kitchen doing at last minute with virtually no time to plan it) and even though he was about to go on holiday he took on the job and did everything he could to get it completed as soon as possible. John is friendly, reliable and trustworthy. I would highly recommend him and would absolutely use him again in the future.”

“We are so pleased with our new Kitchen! It’s a beautiful modern white gloss Benchmarx kitchen which John installed carefully and professionally. He has years of experience and is very skilled. He was friendly to work with, tidy and considerate. He even worked out a way to add a spice cupboard in an otherwise useless corner area. When we had a problem with our induction hob he came back to take care of it. Many thanks John.”


Stephen Doel ★★★★★

“John is simply a star. Not only were the works completed to a very high standard but he has the ability to deal with any problem that comes along. He has a great understanding of whatever medium he is working in and responds quickly to any requests.

He kept in touch with me on a regular basis and worked around our holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”


J Paterson ★★★★★

John was a real pleasure to deal with. His quote to fit our kitchen was the cheapest, and the end result was brilliant. John’s experience and expertise meant that we were able to overcome some unforeseen issues thrown up by the unusual shape of our property. John kept us informed every step of the way and left the place looking great. We’ve already found a number of other projects we’d like John to help us with!


Aldo Furlano ★★★★★

John rescued me from an uneasy situation just before Christmas.
I bought a cooker hood and paid for installation from one of the most prestigious UK retailer. Eventually they didn’t do the installation saying that some extra work was needed (cutting metal parts and so on) and they were not able to do the job as being out of the standard procedure. I contacted John and he was able to do the job with very short notice and in a such busy period of the year. Job was perfect and quote was fully respected. I strongly recommend him and will use his services again.

William Rains★★★★★

John was very easy to work with and did an excellent job on my kitchen refit. The ripped-out materials were neatly organised in the corridor on tarps to protect the carpet. He organised the removal and cleaned the corridor & stair once it was gone. My neighbours even commented how appreciative they were of this. He spent time fitting the new components into the kitchen, including modifying cabinets to fit my sloped walls and creating additional shelves from the excess wood. John sanded and oiled the wood worktops at least 3 times so that it had a perfect & durable finish. Many other little touches that made the job a real success. I could not be more happy with the his work and my new kitchen.

John came over at the last minute to fix my displaced dishwasher. Work was done quickly and to a high standard. And very friendly service. :)
