"We have worked with Vernon for some time now as we progress through our house renovations. Not only was Vernon able to come up with some great ideas within our budget, but he was patient and accommodating as we spent time making up our minds. Vernon was always available to answer questions and give updates. The installation went without a hitch and we are thoroughly happy."

"I have recently had a new kitchen grace my 1950's bungalow which was designed and installed by Forge Kitchens. The entire process from the initial email contact to full completion was a seamless experience. I would be pleased to recommend Vernon, the owner of Forge Kitchens, for his quality workmanship, fine attention to detail and professionalism."

"We have just undertaken our kitchen renovation and we made a decision at the outset to retain the general layout and functionality of the space. We chose to replace all doors and drawers with new material to retain colour uniformity throughout. All doors and drawers were replaced with soft-closing mechanisms. We also required modules to be built to provide additional storage space and close off open space above the existing units where dust collected. This introduced a dimension of complexity to the installer because retaining the general functionality of the space meant that we were retaining the existing cabinet carcases. The kitchen had to remain functional throughout the renovation process. We engaged the services of Vernon Rubie of Forge Kitchens and have been very impressed with the final result and the very obvious skills that he brought to the job. With the exception of the new cupboards and multi-drawer unit, all the installation work was carried out on-site under what must have been less than ideal conditions but all went ahead without a hitch. Vernon suggested functional improvements that have proved correct and useful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Vernon Rubie, owner of Forge Kitchens, to carry out the most complex of jobs with excellent results."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Vernon to firstly achieve a kitchen that I love working in and secondly create living room cabinets to house technical devices and other bits and pieces. He helped bring my ideas to life. His attention to detail and practical knowledge of cabinet making and componentry have given me a kitchen which is easy to use and care for. He worked diligently with other trades to keep the quality high and visited as many times as needed to add the next piece in the kitchen process. I love my kitchen."
