Things to know before Choosing your Kitchen Fitter

When planning any new kitchen, there are important choices that should be made. These include things such as the layout, the style, the functionality and the cost. However, you should also put some serious thought into choosing your kitchen fitter.

Having a professional kitchen company can prove the difference between a smooth installation and a stressful one. Without a reliable team of kitchen design experts, you risk a stressful fitting with the possibility of many errors.

Choosing your Kitchen Fitter: Experience

When we use the word “experience”, we are not talking about how many years a business has been running. What we really mean is a kitchen design company that is experienced in fitting the same brand of kitchen you want to purchase.

A kitchen design company will use the same installers each week. This means they will be quite familiar with the product. There are plenty of kitchen cabinetry manufacturers available. There may be a commonality of good installation principles and recognition. However, there can be significant differences between manufacturers. You may struggle with figuring out how to do it if you are unfamiliar.

This lack of experience can have a knock-on effect on the rest of your kitchen as well. So, if a kitchen fitter were to install base units that aren’t level. This can prevent a correct worktop alignment. As a result, you will soon discover that this is both difficult and costly for correcting.

Working to Agreed Standards

A kitchen fitter who is part of a professional kitchen design team will be working in line with the ethos and methods of that business. We can assure you that the team at Euan Begg Kitchens and Bedrooms all follow a shared method. We make it our mission to deliver a proven kitchen design approach that will ensure a smooth installation.

You are only Dealing with one Business

By dealing with only one business, the whole process from the moment of planning is sped up. This means that everything is likely to run a lot more smoothly. With one business, you don’t need to make multiple calls or send emails to relay information between businesses.

Disputes can be Avoided

If the same company supplies everything you need, and damage was to occur, you need not become a part of the equation. Instead, the issues will lie purely between the kitchen design company and the suppliers. There is nothing on your shoulders as the kitchen design company can take the reins. The only thing you need to think about is how you want your kitchen to look and function.

You are better Protected against disputes

Under the Consumer Rights Act, you have more legal protection. When you deal with a retailer for a supply and installation contract, there is more on your side than with two separate entities.

Avoid Delays

If you are working with an individual and their previous job overruns, what happens to you? What if they become ill or have to put things on hold due to unforeseen circumstances? From breakdowns to sickness, Euan Begg Kitchens and Bedrooms are prepared. Due to having a well-sized team, we can keep any potential delays short. Life happens, delays happen, but what’s important is having the ability to respond and adapt.

Avoid Day Rate Fees

An installation bought via a kitchen company will be all-inclusive. This means you can avoid costly day rates if work runs over. While you may get some total prices from independent kitchen fitters, some may charge a day rate. This means the price can escalate if the work over-runs. If you were to buy through a kitchen design company, however, your agreed price will be all-inclusive.

Peace of Mind

The benefits of an experienced kitchen design team can bring you peace of mind. It will also provide you with more time to focus on the things that are more important to you. Carrying out any major home improvements can be quite disruptive and stressful for any family. Knowing you have the previously mentioned benefits of having a kitchen design team can ease your worries.
