Unraveling the mystery of Kitchen Costs...

It’s a scenario that plays out all too often – consumers, in their quest for a new kitchen, end up making poor buying decisions by opting for the seemingly “cheapest” products and services available. However, this choice is not solely driven by a desire for low prices; rather, it often stems from a lack of knowledge about better alternatives. We understand how overwhelming the kitchen-buying process can be, with countless suppliers, brands, and costs to consider. But fret not! We are here to equip you with the information you need to make informed choices and find the perfect kitchen that meets both your budget and quality expectations.

Searching for the perfect kitchen can indeed be an overwhelming task. It’s crucial to find a reliable kitchen supplier, understand the distinctions between various brands, and accurately estimate the comprehensive costs of your kitchen project. These costs include cabinetry, door styles, worktop materials, appliance brands, installation, building work, electrics, and more. The prices associated with different kitchen ranges can significantly impact your overall budget. With so many factors to consider, budgeting for a new kitchen becomes a challenging endeavor, hindering your confidence in decision-making.

To assist you in making a well-informed purchasing decision, our team has broken-down the costs involved in buying a new kitchen. Our comprehensive ‘Range Specific’ price guides allow you to estimate the approximate expenses for a kitchen of a similar size to yours. These guides serve as invaluable resources, enabling you to gain clarity on the overall cost of your project and budget more effectively.

When it comes to sinks, taps, appliances, and worktop upgrades, we understand that personal preference plays a significant role, and the costs remain relatively consistent across different suppliers. Our price guides include mid-range appliances and other expenses to consider, giving you a holistic view of the total investment required for your kitchen project. Unless you are fitting the kitchen yourself, we’ve also included an estimate of what to expect a professional kitchen fitter would charge for installing your new kitchen.  

If you’re new to the kitchen-buying process, we highly recommend our free Buyer’s Guide. This helpful PDF resource provides valuable insights and tips to navigate your journey effectively. Make sure to give it a read, especially before your initial kitchen design appointment, to maximise your understanding.

If you have already received a quote from a National Retail Chain or Trade Supplier, let your local independent kitchen retailer demonstrate their commitment to providing the best value for your money. A professionally designed, bespoke, made-to-order, color-coordinated kitchen might just surprise you with its affordability and unmatched quality. Discover the possibilities without any financial commitment by requesting a price comparison.

Save time and effort in your search for the perfect kitchen quote. We understand how daunting it can be to navigate through the multitude of kitchen suppliers and DIY chains. That’s why we’ve taken the initiative to simplify the process for you. We submitted an identical medium-sized U-shaped kitchen plan to the top five renowned kitchen brands as a ‘Mystery Shopper,’ requesting quotations for a popular “J Pull White Gloss” door style.

We recognise that the quality and specifications of cabinets and doors can vary significantly between suppliers. To help you assess these options, we’ve also prepared a comprehensive ‘Need-to-Know’ specification checklist for each supplier who has provided a quote. The results speak for themselves, highlighting how independent kitchen retailers can excel in both price and quality compared to mainstream, mass-produced kitchen brands.
