    Where is the best place to get kitchens from?

    Kitchen Fitters

    Where can I go to get the best kitchen? I have a recently bought a property which needs a new kitchen fitting. Is it better to find somewhere to supply the kitchen and then hire a tradesmen to fit it, or have a tradesman supply and fit the kitchen alone?

    "Wren kitchens are expensive ish but lovely. I charged £1700 to turn blank room, all plumbing, electrics, painting, tiling,masticing that wren wanted to charge £3000 for.
    If you get a tradesman in to do it, then get a precise breakdown of every single little task itemised so that no magical “extras” can materialise.
    Price the kitchen yourself thru internet and local suppliers then get man in to do it."

    "Best buy kitchen yourself, shop around selco, wicked, when or magnet. Look for deal sometimes they do 50% off. Then hire the trades man. Don't get fixed from supplier as they will almost charge double for fixing."

    "Hi there, Generally, I would recommend to find any small local kitchen fitters in your area – ideally someone who specialises in kitchens. They usually get the best prices for kitchens as they buy them the most. You could always look online or ordering direct from the manufacturer, which can be cheaper if you know what kitchen parts you are looking for specifically.
    The quality likely isn’t any better using the big brands, as most of them can still be fairly cheap chipboard. Amongst the big brands; B&Q tend to be okay with 18mm chipboard, but aren’t moisture resistant at all. Wickes are cheap and poor quality. Howdens are decent materials, but are often expensive, especially with their extras."

    "Always best to buy the kitchen then find an indispensable installer. The best are self employed and usually massively cheaper."

    "If your buying the kitchen yourself Howdens or magnet are decent and cost effective then find a decent fitter. It can sometimes be better to use the services of a ‘kitchen shop’ as they would have the ability to manage the whole install from start to finish but you will end up paying a bit more for this so depends on how much work you want to do yourself in sourcing the kitchen and fitter."

    "Hi if your buying the units yourself I would agree Howdens do a good quality kitchen at affordable prices compared to b&q etc but you would probably get a good fitter to supply and fit the kitchen complete for less than you would do hiring separately"

    I would recommend HOWDENS have a good quality piece at good prices, B & Q is cheaper but not much, the quality leaves it desirable.
