How Much Does It Cost to Install a Kitchen? If you are planning to buy a new kitchen, you might be wondering how much the installation will cost. The answer depends on several factors, such as the style, brand and size of your kitchen, the type of space you have and who you hire to do the job. In this blog post, we will focus on the installation costs and how they vary depending on these factors. We will also give you some tips on choosing the best option for your budget and needs. The Style and Brand of Your Kitchen The style and brand of your kitchen can have a big impact on the installation costs. This is because different types of kitchens require different levels of skill, time and tools to install. For example, a pre-assembled modular kitchen that fits into a new space with all the necessary services (such as plumbing and electricity) will be easier and cheaper to install than a bespoke kitchen that needs to be customised and fitted into an existing space where services need to be re-routed. The Size of Your Kitchen The size of your kitchen also affects the installation costs. The bigger your kitchen, the more materials, labour and time you need to complete the project. The average size of a kitchen in the UK is about 12 square metres. Based on this size, we will give you some estimates of the installation costs for different types of kitchens below. Who Will Install Your Kitchen? Another important factor to consider is who will install your kitchen. You have three main options: a local tradesman or builder, a large kitchen company or a professional kitchen installer. Each option has its pros and cons, so let’s compare them: – A local tradesman or builder: This may be the cheapest option next to doing it yourself. You can expect to pay between £1,500 and £3,000 for this service. One of the benefits of using the Builder is cooperation. If the builder uses a regular fitter and is organised then the multiple trades needed can all cooperate to install your kitchen. However, this option may have some drawbacks. A local tradesman or builder may not specialise in kitchen installation and may not have the same level of skill, speed, skill, experience and tools required when compared to a professional installer. They may also not offer a guarantee for their work. – Nationwide kitchen company: This may be the most common and also expensive option and on average costs between £5,000 and £8,000. This option offers some benefits, such as long guarantees (if they are honoured), finance options and the biggest ranges. However, this option may also have some disadvantages. Large kitchen companies usually subcontract their work to a list of local installers on a price-per-job basis where the enthuses is on speed not quality. Therefore not offer the same level of personalisation, flexibility or customer service as a smaller company or an individual installer that offers a more bespoke service. – A professional Kitchen installer: This may be the best option for quality, value and peace of mind. You can expect to pay between £2,500 and £6,000 for this service. A professional kitchen installer will have the right expertise, experience and equipment to install your kitchen to a high standard. A local installer will usually have all of the required trades organised to carry out a seamless installation. They will also guarantee their work and provide you with personalised advice and support throughout the process. However, the drawbacks of using a local kitchen installer are the ranges available. They may not have the extensive ranges available that the major suppliers have. They also may not offer the same level of guarantees but will likely honour it as they rely heavily on reputation. How to Choose the Best Option for You As you can see, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to how much it costs to install a kitchen. The best option for you will depend on your budget, preferences and expectations. To help you make an informed decision, here are some questions you should ask yourself before choosing who will install your kitchen: – What is my budget for the installation? – What style and brand of kitchen do I want? – How big is my kitchen space? – Do I need any preparation work done before installing the new kitchen? – How much time do I have for the installation? – How important are quality and guarantee for me? – How much personalisation and flexibility do I want in my kitchen design? – How much customer service and support do I expect from my installer? By answering these questions, you will be able to narrow down your options and find the best fit for you.
