    "All depends on how big it is, how much work is to be done.

    Should be around 5/7 working days."

    "That depends on how far everything has to be carried in and out of the flat. How much space is there to work? How big is the kitchen? How many units?
    An average fit will be maybe a day to rip out and alter any service supplies. 2 day for units. 2 days for machine fitting worktops. 1 day for light rail, cornice and plinths. How may appliances need fitting? Are they integral or freestanding?
    Too many variables to answer. Do the units need assembling? You could spend a day or more doing that."

    "This should take 2 days max. The biggest job will be getting the items into the flat if it’s upstairs. If your cabinets are rigid then a good tradesman will take 1-2 days max,"

    "It really depends on the job i.e is the job just to fit the kitchen or does the job involve more than just the initial fitting. Say the walls need addressing, or electrics or plumbing needs to be moved or amended.

    Now normally a full kitchen refurbishment takes approximately 2 weeks start to finish, however if say all the above is ok and it's a straight and easy sway like for like with no issues, 5 days we can normally install a kitchen and again like I said it really does depend on the particular job specification as kitchen installs do vary depending on the complexity of the fit-out and worktops, etc.

    Hope this helps

    "Depending on the exsiting pumbing and electrics it can vary.
    But if no variation from the origanal set up then 7-10 days is normal"

    "How long is a piece of string? The timeframe to install a kitchen in a flat depends on how big the kitchen is. If you want a better idea you would need to give more information."

    "Depends on the size and what extra work is needed to be completed before the kitchen fit starts. Normally it takes two days for a full kitchen installation."
