Top tips for getting the best deal on a fitted kitchen

The decision to fit a brand new kitchen is a big one. If you get it right, you’ll have the stylish, new kitchen of your dreams, fitted to a highest standards with minimal disruption, that will last you for many years. But get it wrong and you can end up in kitchen nightmare hell, with low quality units that are poorly fitted, take an age to install and look tired and shabby after only a few years.

Getting it right can be a bit of a minefield. But here are three simple steps you can take to ensure you get it right when finding the perfect kitchen for you.

1. Don’t be sucked in by the big names

They do great advertising and they can deliver adequate kitchens, but places like Wickes, Magnet, Howdens and Wren don’t always offer the best value, and can’t always deliver exactly to your requirements.

They are convenient and familiar, but the reality is that you can end up paying over the odds for a lower quality kitchen. For example, backboards may only be 3 or 6mm hardboard that soon starts to bow. Many modern fitted kitchens will come with the low quality foil, PET, PVC or vinyl wrapped type doors which peel and aren’t as durable as better quality alternatives.

It’s easy to think that the half price sales that regularly occur in the larger chains will deliver you excellent savings, but the reality is that you rarely get real money off when build and installation qualities are low.

2. Talk to an independent expert

The alternative is to find a good independent kitchen expert who can help you design and source a quality kitchen, directly to your budget and to your owns specific requirements. By working with you, a kitchen expert can find out what you really need, and then help to build the perfect solutions for you, getting the best value kitchen all the way.

One of the reasons clients love working with us at Euan Begg Cheshire Kitchens is that they can have almost endless choices within their budget. By working closely with them, we can invariably source for them the best quality and value items that will match their needs.

As independent kitchen experts, we are able to offer a very wider choice of products to suit any budget, through our relationships with various factories and workshops and suppliers throughout the UK. No matter what you budget may be, we have the products for your particular bespoke kitchen design.

3. Use an expert kitchen fitter

We work closely with many local builders who are excellent at their job. If you need extensions or a partition wall, they will produce superb results. But most builders are unlikely to be able to fit a kitchen as well as an experienced kitchen fitter. In fact, many local Cheshire builders use our service to assist in new builds and renovations.

At Euan Begg Kitchens, we offer a one stop shop, removing the need for multiple contractors for services such as building and tiling. Not only can we design your kitchen with you, source all your units and white goods, but we will also install your fitted kitchen for around the same price as a builder. The difference being, that we are specialist kitchen fitters. As such, we can usually take considerably less time than a builder. Meaning that not only can you can use your kitchen sooner, you will also see much better results in the build quality and design.

With careful planning your Bespoke Kitchens Cheshire can deliver the perfect balance across all three areas if necessary.
