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 quality, from one to five stars.
People we surveyed rated the quality and durability of different components of the kitchen they bought, as well as overall.
We also asked kitchen owners about the installation process, including rating the quality, mess made, speed and communication from the installer, to see whether it's worth opting for Wren Kitchens' installation service.

To find out which are the best and worst kitchen brands, in October and November 2017 we asked 3,443 Which? members about the kitchen they had bought in the last 10 years, and their experiences with the brand they bought it from.
In 2018, we assessed three units (a base unit, wall cupboard and a drawer unit) from the kitchen brands that achieved a customer score of 70% or more, as well as four or five star ratings for all five elements we asked people about in our survey.
