Before you fork out on a Benchmarx kitchen, find out what its customers think of its fitted kitchens, and how they stood up to our lab assessments.
We've surveyed thousands of kitchen company customers to reveal how Benchmarx kitchens compare with rival brands such as Howdens Joinery, John Lewis and Magnet.

Alongside our survey, we've assessed kitchen units in lab conditions to see whether they're worthy of a Best Buy logo.
When these were combined with ratings from our survey, brands need to score more than 70% overall to be in with the chance of a Best Buy award.

In our survey, we asked people how satisfied they are with the brand and whether they would recommend it to a friend. We then combine these to create an overall customer score.
We also ask customers to rate specific elements, including value for money and durability, on a seven-point scale from very poor to excellent.
Visit our page on the best and worst kitchen brands to see how Benchmarx kitchens compare with other brands for each area.
We also asked people to rate the durability of different components of the kitchen they bought, as well as quality of worktops and doors.
Out page on units, doors and worktops reveals how people rated different materials for doors, worktops and units, as well as the what we discovered in our lab about unit thickness and construction.
We don't have customer ratings for Benchmarx's kitchen installation because it's a trade company and doesn't have its own installers.
See how other kitchen brands, including Wickes and Wren Kitchens, were rated for installation, by visiting our kitchen installation page.
As well as rating the brands, we asked customers to give us more details about their experiences.

Although Benchmarx only sells directly to tradespeople, meaning you'll need to find an installer yourself, you can still view the kitchens online or in store and receive design advice (see details below).
Benchmarx has more than 10 types of kitchen, both traditional and modern designs, many of which are available in a choice of three or more colours and finishes.
Planning/design service: Free design service at home where the designer will come to measure up and advise on what will suit your needs, as well as coordinating joinery items such as flooring. You can also go in store for advice and planning. Kitchen design software isn't offered.
Installation: As Benchmarx is a trade kitchen supplier and doesn't recommend installers, you'll need to find one yourself, although Benchmarx can guide you through the process. Benchmarx kitchens come pre-assembled.
Kitchen appliances, flooring and tiles: Large kitchen appliances from a range of brands and specialist kitchen flooring, all fitted at extra cost - visit our home appliances page to find the best appliances for you. Benchmarx doesn't supply floor or wall tiles.
