    Fitting a full Kitchen

    Kitchen Fitters

    I am looking to buy a new kitchen suite and would like to know where the best place to buy a full kitchen would be? I want to buy it and get it installed ideally unless it would be better to buy it separately?

    I'm after the full kitchen with units, worktops and built in appliances. Any advice on the best place to buy them from without getting ripped off would be greatly appreciated.

    "Yours is a very difficult question to answer, my advice would always to speak to some local installers first and talk it through with them first,ideally set yourself a sensible budget with a decent figure iro £2000 for installation.
    You may find your installer would have a relationship with a large trade kitchen supplier who will come to your house on his behalf and do a design but ask your installer to come up with his/her own design first.
    Wren Kitchens are very good but their service can be questionable if you use a decent pro installer he would most likely be able to navigate his way through any problems though
    I would stay away from any internet based companies as whoever you choose to supply the kitchen their are likely to be the odd shortage ,damage etc keeping it local is generally favourite to resolve any issues quickly.
    Hope this helps"

    "Hi Steve.

    To answer your question in brief, it depends on your budget. If you wanted a bespoke kitchen with and high end appliances then you would be better off buying separately.

    If you are on a tight budget than buy a complete low cost kitchen from B&Q or similar.

    If you wanted to buy a good quality kitchen with reliable appliances at a reasonable price I would highly recommend using Howdens. They will send out a representative to survey and design your kitchen free of charge.

    You would however need to be a trade customer and also employ your own tradesmen to install your kitchen once purchased."

    "Hi Steve!
    Quality ways I would definitely recommend Wren. I had fitted couple of this kitchens before, and they the best out of the high-street brands.
    They do a load of things different, some of it amused me in a good way...
    The price to get the kitchen installed is a horror....But they units worktops appliances reasonable priced and as I said good quality.
    Kid regards

    "It Varies massively I dislike howdens as a company as they try to allow the trade to rip off the end client. I am an independent kitchen fitter I rate wren and symphony kitchens, I fit a lot of both the feedback is wrens installers are chaotic and don’t do a lot of the extras like appliances installation and plumbing and they are usually about 50% more expensive than me too. Symphony is mostly franchised and there resellers differ massively but the kitchens are well built."

    "Hi Steve.

    Purchasing a kitchen is a minefield, however it is best to use an independent person such as myself or another, as the quality and service is much better and you get all of the guarantees that you would get from the ,bigger companies. .

    I am not allowed to recommend or suggest any companies on here. but independents are your best way forward.

    All the best.

    "Hi Steve

    In terms of quality and value you’ll not get better then a local supplier. If your in the north east I could point you to a few. plus the added benefit of supporting your local community, alternatively I’d Say that Wren are the best quality. Howdens, Wickes, Homebase and b&q aren’t the best. I’d always source the fitter yourself as the big diy Chains charge crazy amounts for fitting and the fitter would be lucky to get 50% of that.

    "Hi Steve a good place to start is B&Q or wickes as they do a free design service and are upfront with all their prices. Another option would be Howdens Joinery. The only issue would be they are trade only but they will design it for free but you won't know the price until they find a tradespersons account to put the order through."

    "It depends on your budget and timescale.
    A bespoke kitchen made by a specialist cabinet maker would be expensive and take time to make.
    A cheaper and quicker option would be to buy one "off the shelf", pre-made unit sizes to fit the room. KBB or Howdens for example.
    You could then arrange for a fitter to install it."
