Is it just the carcass, right?

Despite the myth 'a carcass is just a carcass', why compromise on the quality of the kitchen cabinets? Here at Riley James Kitchens, we believe that when making your choice in a replacement kitchen you should also make the choice to have a carcass that will also stand the test of time. If the kitchen cabinet is mediocre in quality, how can you expect the kitchen to last?

All of our kitchens come to our customers complete. So they come pre-built, doors & drawers hung and with wireworks fitted. You wont find many that offer this service. In addition, if logistics are a problem, we can send the carcasses flat packed for the times where it is not possible to get the units to site pre-built. At Riley James we are very flexible when selling our products.

When customers purchase from Riley James they can expect first class service. From the initial consultation and design process, right through to delivery and support with installation. We are always approachable and here to help, regardless of the problem. We are not a national company which is only interested in the sale. Therefore with Riley James, customers are real and not just a monthly target. So please feel free to contact us to discuss your project in more detail.
