Buying a fitted kitchen can seem like a relatively simple process; measure your kitchen dimensions, choose your new kitchen, have kitchen delivered and then installed in your home. However in reality there are a number of pitfalls that you want to avoid lest you end up with a cheap, hashed-together looking kitchen.
Particularly when buying fitted kitchens, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when choosing the ideal fitted kitchen for your home, and this short guide may help you to avoid getting caught up the creek without a paddle, so to speak!
Check that what you see is what you get
In some cases when you buy a unit, the sales representative does not include the cost of the door, the hinges, the drawer boxes, etc. etc. Make sure that what you see is what you get for your money and be wary of hidden extra charges.
Go for Quality
It is also important to bear in mind that if you buy cheap with fitted kitchens, cheap is what you are going to get. Sub-standard materials and bad alignment is prevalent in cheap fitted kitchens, meaning you’re going to get a bad finish that needs renovating in 5 years without fail. Better to spend a little extra.
Don’t Get Bullied!
Sales reps are very charming when they come to visit you; do not be enticed by them! If you are unsure, ask them to come back another time. Even if they appear to be doing you a special ‘one time only’ deal, this is only a sales tactic and often the price they quote is far more than what you would actually end up paying. Take time to think it over before you leap to any decision making!
And as always, get advice from a professional if you’re unsure. Price Kitchens have extensive experience in all areas of kitchen design, so why not hear from the experts?
