Buying a kitchen at anytime is exciting! Choose the designs, pick the perfect worktop, ask the right questions, imagine yourself entertaining in the perfect space—from start to finish it should be a positive experience. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The financial investment that is required often means people look to cut corners and save money where they can. Before you fall into an open trap door, take the time to weigh up the benefits of paying a professional kitchen fitter to fit your kitchen.
Have Your Kitchen Professionally Fitted
#1 No Hidden Surprises – A Fixed Price
Once you’ve locked in a price with a professional fitted kitchen company, that’s it. All the materials and labour should be included, so you’re unlikely to get any nasty surprises halfway through the project. This enables you to budget more effectively and keep on track with your finances.
#2 Experience – it is worth paying for?
If you needed a tooth removed, you’d go to the dentist (well at least we hope you would). So, if you need a new fully-fitted kitchen, you should go to a company that has bags of experience, a portfolio of well built installed kitchens and a ton of great reviews by happy customers. Fly-by-night kitchen fitters are quite common, proceed with caution. While they might offer you a price that you can’t refuse, the workmanship and quality of materials will almost certainly leave you disappointed.
#3 Finance options could be available with a professional kitchen fitter
Many people put off a big kitchen makeover because their ‘kitchen saving pot’ keeps getting emptied by the expense of everyday living. If you are in a position where you need to get cracking, but the dream kitchen is just out of reach—then you could opt for a finance package to help you get underway. A professional company will be able to offer you a secure finance package, that many smaller, less professional companies can’t.
4# Professional kitchen fitters may offer storage
If you don’t have the luxury of vacating your home while the kitchen refit is being carried out, then you may benefit from asking the kitchen fitter to store some of your appliances/units securely. This means that there is less disruption to your everyday routine – particularly if your house is already tight for living space. Professional kitchen installation companies should easily be able to accommodate this in the short term, by comparison, the cheaper less professional fitter is less likely to be able to include this service.
5# Using a professional kitchen fitter means less disruption.
The benefit of using a professional kitchen fitting company means they are likely to have a team they regularly use to execute each build task efficiently. The tried and tested working process means less timely delays and disruption. In most cases they will be able to finish the job more quickly, resulting in less disruption for you and your family.
6# Peace of mind with a professional kitchen fitter
NICEIC (electrical), WRAS (plumbing) and Corgis(gas) and a few other bits and pieces. You need all of these trades and more to fit a kitchen. Remember to ask for certificates on completion, or it could cause issues when selling your house. If you commission a professional company to install and fit your dream kitchen, you are also paying for peace of mind. Look after your mental well-being, having your kitchen renovated can be a stressful time, especially if you use the wrong kitchen fitter.
