If you are buying your fitted kitchen from a company like Homebase, B&Q or Wickes, you'll almost certainly be offered an installation service, and naturally at an additional cost. This can often come as something of a shock (especially if you'd already got a price in your head), because there is a considerable mark-up on this service, and it will probably be double what you were expecting. The actual installers will only get roughly 50 percent of this and the remainder will be added to the profits of the company in question.

So, these contracted out installation services do carry a few benefits, although not sufficient to warrant such a price hike. They are big companies, therefore you will probably be recompensed if there are any issues, and the installation does come with certain guarantees. Nevertheless, as a company like B&Q will probably be using local kitchen fitters from close to Bathgate anyway, there's no real reason why you can't simply book such services directly, and cut the bill by half.

You will need to carefully check all the boxes on delivery (no easy feat), and follow up on any omissions, since the installation process can be delayed for weeks when stuff is missing, and that can be costly and inconvenient.

Many kitchen fitters in Bathgate do not really like to work for such chains, or even install their kitchens, due to these kinds of concerns, so it might be a good idea to check first. In spite of all this, these kitchens will remain extremely popular, because they're excellent value and of decent quality (provided that all of the parts arrive!), when fitted correctly they should just as durable as any comparable (chipboard or MDF) kitchen.

Choosing a Kitchen Sink

As possibly the most functional part of any kitchen in Bathgate, you might feel that the 'style and design' of the sink in your kitchen is pretty much irrelevant. Surely all that is needed is an ordinary stainless steel sink for doing the dishes, correct? Wrong! In fact, sinks come in an array of sizes, shapes and materials, and your choice of sink could have large aesthetic and practical ramifications for your kitchen in Bathgate. But, what are the different sorts of kitchen sinks available, and how will they impact on the way that your kitchen is used? Here is a rundown of the kitchen sinks on offer right now:

Kitchen Sinks Bathgate

Styles: Whilst one-bowl sinks are almost ubiquitous in domestic kitchens in Bathgate, there's much to be said for a couple of the alternatives. Two-bowl sinks, for example, provide ample space for you to do food preparation and washing-up simultaneously, without any risk of dropping your carrots into soapy water. Nevertheless, they do occupy a lot of space, which means they might not be suited to smaller kitchens in Bathgate where space is limited.

One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer a good compromise, providing you with an extra area that doesn't eat up too much of your available surface space. There's still a lot to be said for large one bowl sinks, particularly if you've got a dishwasher. One big single sink allows you to soak bigger pans and dishes that won't easily fit into the machine.

Materials: Stainless steel is the most popular sink material available and with good reason. Durable, cost-effective and easy to maintain, its sleek metallic appearance fits seamlessly into almost any kitchen area. If, however, you're looking for something a touch different for your own kitchen in Bathgate, you might wish to think about granite, which is exceptionally resistant to scuffing and scraping, and offers a contemporary aesthetic which is both understated and imposing.

If you cannot afford granite, though, you might be attracted to composite sinks, which are made from a mix of fillers and natural materials. Coming in at a slightly lower price, they offer some of granite's best qualities, making them a great choice. Alternatively, you could go with the classic tones of ceramic sinks, which combine a high-gloss finish with a brilliant white material to produce an impressive focal point in the kitchen.

Mounting Options: When it comes to mounting options, you can go with under-mount, surface or set-in sinks. Surface-mounted sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the worktop surface, and offer a good all-round mounting option for many different types of worktop material. For a subtler touch, you might think about an under-mount sink, which is fitted below the worktop and creates no rim between worktop surface and the sink. This makes the area around the sink a lot easier to clean. Lastly, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made from the same material, which offers a seamless aesthetic which works perfectly with granite.

And there you have it. An almost endless variety of available choices, meaning that you're certain to find a sink that complements your property in Bathgate.
