"I’ve read some of the other replies you’ve had to this question.
Yes fitting the kitchen cabinets is more than possible with basic skills the plumbing would require more thought and at least a working knowledge however basic knowledge of any electrical work when it comes to a kitchen is best left to a qualified person
Best of luck"

"Anything is possible, but to what level of finish and being able to deal with problems and having the tools and knowledge to cope with them to at least an acceptable level is what you can only answer yourself."

you would need joinery skills and pluming skills and basic electrical skills
Also dependent on your design of kitchen type also tiling skills and basic plastering skill
Also depends on how good you are as a DIY leave it to the professional tradespeople"

"Hi, it is possible yes, if you are DIY-minded. The most important aspect is making sure that you start off the first cabinet-level and square. Skills and knowledge only come with experience. Take your time and abs most importantly, measure two or three times and cut only once.

Hope this helps"
