11 Tips For Buying a New Kitchen

  1. When buying a new kitchen the first thing we recommend is that you visit a showroom and discuss your needs with the experts. Don’t buy straight away no matter what type of deal you are being offered. Go home and think about it. The special offers will still be there in a day or two.
  2. Look at at least two different kitchen designs at different budget levels. It might surprise you what you can afford and by doing this you will get a better picture of what is right for you and what your new kitchen budget will be.
  3. Find out about the kitchen company and how long they have been in operation. What type of guarantee do they offer?
  4. Does the company have their own kitchen fitters or are they sub-contractors? Who do you actually pay for doing the job?
  5. Always ask for references and ask to see an actual installation. Most quality kitchen companies will be happy to show you.
  6. Spend time thinking about your new kitchen plans. The kitchen showroom experts should be able to show you a visual representation of your new kitchen in the style and finish you’ve chosen before you make your purchase.
  7. When you go looking at new kitchens, they appeal to your visual senses, but it is also important to look at the cupboards themselves as well to see the quality of them. You should look at the thickness, the types of drawers and drawer runners used, the type of hinges, and so on too.
  8. Get a realistic time frame for your new kitchen. The amount of time it will take to supply and fit your new kitchen will depend on its size and the products you choose, but watch out for those who offer a very fast or indeed a very slow turnaround.
  9. Remember when buying a new kitchen, it’s not just the cost of the units, worktops, and appliances. You also have to make allowances in your budget for your floors, wall tiles, lighting, and painting and decorating.
