As, as time goes by, a great many amazing memories are going to be created there, it is essential that the kitchen is a room where everyone can feel relaxed, in addition to looking great and being functional. Updating your kitchen into a place that everybody loves and wants to hang out in can improve your family life and provide a meeting place for both friends and loved ones.
So as to wind up with the kitchen of your dreams, and also one that is appealing to the rest of your family, make sure you use an experienced and trustworthy kitchen fitter in Aldershot to undertake the work.
If, like many householders in Aldershot, you are planning to buy your fitted kitchen from a big chain such as Wickes, Homebase or B&Q, you will discover that they offer a kitchen fitting service as well. This is obviously an additional cost that will be tagged onto the price for the kitchen. If you previously have a price in your head for installation, you may find that the price they give you is close to twice as much as you envisioned, and that may not even include electrical work and plumbing. The installers will only be paid approximately 50% of this money and the remainder will be added to the profits of the company in question.
There are obviously some advantages to using these (contracted out) fitting services. They save you having to find your own installation specialist, there are a set of guarantees provided, and any issues occurring with the installation should be resolved or compensated for. On the other hand, as a company like Magnet will likely be using local kitchen fitters from the Aldershot area, there is no reason why you can't book these services directly, and cut the bill by half. Additionally, any genuine Aldershot kitchen installer will provide some sort of after care service in the event that any problems occur, and they are likely to be more approachable than trudging through a large DIY company's complaints procedure which can be alarmingly "clunky" and slow.
When purchasing new kitchens from some of these large DIY chains, you should keep in mind that several problems are likely to occur, and some firms are well known for this. They are renowned for not supplying everything in your order, delivering the wrong products and having fittings, parts and fixtures missing from individual cartons. Most DIY chain kitchens arrive in a flat-pack, so they'll need to be assembled in-situ. You will have to meticulously check all the boxes on delivery (no easy feat), and rigorously follow up on any omissions, given that the installation process can be held up for weeks when items are absent, and that may be costly and inconvenient.
Many kitchen fitters in Aldershot avoid working for such companies, or even get involved with installing their products, because of these types of problems, so it's wise to check first. In spite of all this, these kitchens will continue to be very popular, since they are great value and of acceptable quality (provided that all of the components arrive!), when fitted correctly they'll just as durable as any comparable (chipboard or composite) kitchen.
Testimonials for kitchen fitters can be obtained from a number of sources, but if a friend or family member has recently had a kitchen fitted, that's one of the most trustworthy endorsements you can get. Word of mouth is usually a good indication, and should be considered as a decent starting position when you are hunting for a kitchen fitter. To get an idea of prices you'll want to obtain at least three different estimates from your list of potential kitchen fitters.
A competent Aldershot kitchen fitter will draw up a plan of your new kitchen after carrying out a survey and precisely measuring your space. They will explain cabinet designs, colour schemes, materials and room layouts, in order to prepare the most comprehensive plan possible. In accordance with the choices you make, and working from this plan, they will be in a position to supply you with a precise estimate for your kitchen. You can of course jot down your own rough plan, if you are capable of doing the measurements by yourself, then take it to Magnet or B&Q, where a software program will calculate the layout and tell you where all the units will fit.
With an abundance of woodworking expertise and experience behind them, most professional kitchen installers in Aldershot will have done some sort of apprenticeship scheme through their employer, to provide them with the necessary capabilities for this work. Skilled in using both hand and power tools, they will be able to rip out your old kitchen in Aldershot and install your new layout swiftly, professionally and correctly.
When your existing kitchen units are being taken down there's a pretty decent chance that some extra work will come to light which wasn't noticed in the design and planning phase. On account of the time that has gone by since the original kitchen was fitted the floors and walls behind the units will have been mostly forgotten and neglected. A few of these trouble spots might be damaged and need to be refurbished in order for your new kitchen to fit perfectly in position, and your kitchen fitter will have to deal with this if the work is to progress without issues.
Sometimes it will be the case that your kitchen installer is Gas Safe Registered, this means he can repair or swap gas cooking appliances and gas ovens, but if not he will bring in a registered Gas Safe plumbing engineer to do that task for you. You may also be planning to exchange existing floor coverings in your kitchen area which is often the case when new kitchens are fitted. Although you may opt to use a flooring specialist for this work, your Aldershot kitchen installer will be quite able to replace laminate, engineered wood, natural stone, solid wood, vinyl or tiles flooring as an element of the entire installation.

Kitchen Floor Levelling Aldershot
It might be vital to get the floor levelled before fixing the cabinets when you are doing a new kitchen installation, in particular if you are demolishing walls (pantry, broom cupboard, etc) to increase the size of the available space.

A regular self-levelling screed will be adequate in most cases, and the kitchen fitter will include this within the price (if the need for it was clear from the start), and when necessary he will call in a screeding specialist, or complete the work himself.
