Kitchen Fitting – is it worth paying for?

Well, I certainly think professional kitchen installation is so.

Having seen literally thousands of kitchen installations it doesn’t take long to see which ones were professionally fitted.

It doesn’t matter how much you pay for the Cabinets, Worktops, and Appliances … if they are fitted badly your new kitchen will look awful.

Are you confident you have the correct knowledge and tools to do the job correctly?

So, do I fit it myself, or pay a professional to do my Kitchen Fitting …

Well, let’s look at the types of work this will entail.

Kitchen Fitting is multi-tasked work … including these tasks:

  • Strip out of the existing kitchen
  • Rubbish removal/disposal
  • Wall/Floor Tile removal
  • Re-Plastering
  • New floor covering (Tiles/Wood/Laminate etc.)
  • Plumbing (Sink/Tap)
  • Electrics (including Part P preparation works)
  • Gas Works (Hob etc.)
  • Carpentry (Cabinets/Trims etc.)
  • New Wallcoverings (Tiles/Glass etc.)
  • Worktop (Cutting/Mitring)

As you can see, this is not as simple as it looks!

Kitchen Fitting requires a great deal of experience … do you have it?

Want to know how much your kitchen installation is likely to cost? … expect to pay between £2,000 and £4,000 depending upon the extent of the work.

For more detailed costing please check out the free Kitchen Installation cost calculator on my website … Kitchen Fitting Cost Calculator

However, always check the references of any Kitchen Installer before employing them … and don’t pay all the bill until the job is finished to your complete satisfaction.
