In our last blog, How to make your kitchen budget go further (Part 1), we shared some essential money saving tips. Now it’s time for Part 2 with more budget advice for your new kitchen. Experience has shown us that the trick is to allocated your budget in a way so that every penny goes towards the right things to give you the kitchen you need and want.
Look out for special discounts
You may have your heart set on a particular kitchen collection, but it often pays to be a bit flexible. Look out for promotional offers on ex-display kitchens, special discounts on end-of-line kitchen ranges, and seasonal sale prices. You might be pleasantly surprised how much money you can save on a kitchen when the timing is right. The same goes for appliances – with a bit of shopping around you may find special deals and clearance offers all year round.
Minimise expensive alterations
Building works can substantially add to the cost of your kitchen, so if the space can be reused without making any structural alterations, you’re bound to save money. The same goes for utility meters and services. Moving gas and electricity meters is an expensive business and best avoided. Relocating the position of the sink, dishwasher, washing machine and cooker will also add to the cost. Think carefully about any extra electrical, gas and plumbing work needed to realise your new design.
Fit the kitchen yourself
While Price Kitchens can arrange a kitchen installation for you, or get our fitters to deal with you direct, we can also work on a ‘supply only’ basis. That way, you can make your own arrangements and save money on installing the kitchen. Do you have any contact in the trades or are a skilled tradesman or enthusiastic DIYer yourself? From fitting ready-made carcases to tiling and flooring jobs, there may be many jobs where you might be able to make savings.
Choose a great supplier
Last but by no means least, choose your kitchen supplier wisely. Finding the right company to deal with not only saves money but also provides peace of mind. Remember, the cheapest prices are not always the best solution if your needs aren’t met. At Price Kitchens, we have a wealth of experience in designing, manufacturing and fitting a vast range of kitchens in London, Surrey and beyond. And with more than 30 years in the business, you can depend on us as a valuable source of information an advice. We are proud to offer a truly personal service to help you get the best for your new kitchen, and at the best possible price.
