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.

Wickes has 37 kitchens which are split across into two categories: contemporary and classic/traditional. Its kitchens come with matt or gloss finishes and in a range of muted colours.
Its Ready to Fit range contains eight kitchens, some from the other ranges, that are flat-pack, and ready to take home and assemble, either yourself or by your chosen installer.
Wickes says its cabinet edges are reinforced to provide extra protection and that its Blum hinges and drawer systems mean they close softly and are guaranteed for a lifetime.
