A guide on buying the UK fitted kitchens and prices in London
As a thumb rule, it’s safe to say that your fitted kitchen is the most used space in your house. Consequently, a typical kitchen also wears down much faster than other areas of the house and therefore, is likely to require a redo say, once every five years. Of course, this figure can differ from person to person or rather, house to house. Either way, the more important question is how much would a new fitted kitchen cost you?
Before we get into the numbers, it’s important to realise that the eventual cost greatly depends on your preferences. The cost can escalate quickly if you opt for shiny appliances, designer brands, flashy accessories and intricate decorative touches.
Steps to buy fitted kitchens for your home
Therefore, it is a good idea to start by hiring a fitted kitchen designer in the UK as they will help you to design the kitchen keeping in mind your needs, preferences but also your budget.
Next up is rewiring the kitchen. A qualified electrician costs you £300-£900 depending on the work to be done and the number of appliances you own. DIY is best avoided here.
Storage cabinets, appliances, and worktops are pretty much the essence of your fitted kitchen. For cabinets, a golden rule you can follow is that the simpler the design, the lower the cost. So a standard unit won’t be as expensive as one with glass inlays or even rounded corners. All said, expect to shell out around £3,000 for a quality range of cabinets.
As with cabinets, appliances corner a big piece of any fitted kitchen budget. The best way to approach this is to decide on the appliances you need and the manner in which you’ll use them. This helps avoid buying oversized, and thus pricey, appliances. A complete set of modern appliances is likely to set you back by around £2,000.
The same applies to worktops too as laminate ones can be bought for roughly £100 while those made of granite, marble, and wood generally retail for over £1,000.
So how much will the fitted kitchen costs you in the UK?
To sum it up, you can get yourself a new fitted kitchen for around £7,000 to £10,000. The variation is again down to your preferences and ensuring some leeway in your budget never hurts.
