Three reasons to find your own kitchen installation company

Posted on

Do your kitchen units look tired and in need of replacement? New kitchen units could brighten up your home and potentially add significant value to your property when you come to sell. If you do plan on buying a new kitchen you might be thinking of using the company you buy the units from to install them but there are good reasons not to do that. Here are three reasons why it often makes sense to employ a separate company to install your new kitchen.

Kitchen installations can be charged separately

If you purchase a new kitchen from your retailer you should always check whether installation of the units is included in the price. Sometimes the full cost of installation is included in the price you are quoted but often you will find that you are expected to pay extra to install your new kitchen units. Unexpectedly discovering you must pay for installation can turn your great value kitchen into an expensive nightmare. Enquiring in advance and budgeting for installation from the start will give you a more accurate understanding of the true cost of your new kitchen.

You can employ someone with the right experience

If you leave the installation arrangements to your retailer then you may have no clear idea who will actually be fitting your kitchen. Many retailers contract kitchen installations out to third parties without making this clear to customers. By using a company of your own choice that specialises in kitchen installations you can have confidence that your new kitchen will be fitted by someone with the right experience and skills to create the great looking kitchen that you are expecting.

You don't have to risk fitting the kitchen yourself

If you have some experience of DIY it can sometimes be tempting to think that you can save money by fitting the new kitchen yourself. It's true that given enough time a competent handyman could probably fit a kitchen, but it's not usually a good idea to try it. If you have a full-time job you will be coming home from work already tired and find that instead of being able to prepare a nourishing meal before relaxing you must now struggle to assemble your kitchen. Most kitchens will take a handyman weeks to install if they can only work on them in the evenings or at weekends. Why waste your time in this way when a company that specialises in kitchen installations can quickly and efficiently do the job for you?
