Kitchen Fitters Bishop's Waltham Hampshire (SO32): For a lot of families in Bishop's Waltham the most obvious place in which to interact and gather together is the kitchen. Given that, as life moves on, a great many magical memories are going to be experienced there, it is crucial that the kitchen is a space where everyone can feel at ease, as well as looking good and being practical. Converting your kitchen into a room that everyone enjoys and wants to be in can reinvent your day-to-day life and provide a meeting place for both loved ones and friends.
Installing a newisn't a task that you have to undertake all that often, therefore when the time comes to exchange your old kitchen you should use a qualified Bishop's Waltham to make certain your new kitchen units look nice and are correctly mounted.
If you're purchasing your fitted kitchen from a company such as Homebase, B&Q or Wickes, you will probably be offered an installation service, and obviously at an additional cost. There may very well be a sharp intake of breath when you're given the price for this service, because it will probably be roughly double what you were expecting to pay. There is a logical reason behind this, and that is because the actual installers will receive 50% of this money, whilst the company stick the other 50% into their already bulging bank account.
There are of course certain benefits from using these (sub-contracted) fitting services. It saves you going through the effort of finding your own fitter, there are specified guarantees included, and any problems occurring should be resolved or compensated for. However, you can cut your bill in half by arranging those services yourself, and there is a fair chance that you might even finish up using the exact same fitting service because someone like Homebase commonly use local fitters from the Bishop's Waltham area anyway. Furthermore, any reputable Bishop's Waltham kitchen fitter will offer some sort of aftercare service in the event that any problems occur, and they will likely be more approachable than trudging through a company's complaints procedure which is often alarmingly snail-paced and "clunky".
It also pays to bear in mind that when buying new kitchens from some of these large chains, problems quite commonly crop up. They are renowned for having fixtures, fittings and parts missing from individual cartons, not delivering everything in your order and delivering incorrect products. It is quite normal for fitted kitchens to arrive in a flat-pack, especially when bought from DIY stores, and to save inconvenient and costly delays to the installation process, you'll want to check that everything is delivered correctly, and that all the packages are there and complete with the right components (easier said than done).
Thanks to all these issues, and others I won't mention here, lots of kitchen installers in Bishop's Waltham will not work for such diy chains, and are not even that happy about fitting kitchens supplied by them. Therefore, before going too far ask around and get some feedback on these kitchens. With all that said, these kitchens will remain extremely popular, since they are good value for money and of reasonable quality (providing that all of the components arrive!), when fitted properly they'll just as durable as any comparable (chipboard or composite) kitchen.
Testimonials for kitchen fitters can be gathered from a number of sources, however if a friend or member of their family has recently had a kitchen fitted, that is one of the most dependable endorsements you can get. A word of mouth recommendation is preferred above any other kind of review or endorsement by around eighty per cent of homeowners in Bishop's Waltham, so where possible, you should make the most of this fact. From the potential kitchen fitters, make an effort to get at least two or three price quotes.
A free home survey will be offered by some kitchen fitters in Bishop's Waltham, during which they'll accurately measure the available space, go over cabinet designs, colour schemes, materials and room layouts. They'll then prepare a detailed plan of your kitchen, in line with what has been agreed. From this carefully crafted plan, they will be in a position to supply you with you a precise quote, according to your choice of kitchen. If you want to take the DIY store route, you can pop along to Homebase or B&Q with your own dimensions and measurements, and they will enter them into a software package, that will come up with a detailed plan.
To provide them with the essential capabilities for this sort of work, most experienced kitchen installers in Bishop's Waltham will have accomplished some form of apprenticeship scheme with their employer, and will normally have a wealth of joinery and carpentry experience and expertise behind them. They'll be adept and confident in the use of a whole host of power and hand tools, and will appropriately employ these to dismantle your tired and dreary old kitchen and replace it with a brand new one that you and your family can use and enjoy for many years to come.
Throughout the dismantling of your old cabinets and other units, the kitchen fitter might possibly find spots which need additional work. Long forgotten walls and floors under and behind the existing kitchen cabinets will have been concealed for a number of years on account of the time that's passed since they were first installed. Some of these trouble spots might be damaged and need to be repaired if your new kitchen is going to fit perfectly in position, and your kitchen installer will have to deal with this if the work is going to progress smoothly.
You might find that your kitchen fitter is Gas Safe Registered, this means he can repair or replace gas cooking appliances and gas ovens, but if he isn't he will bring in a registered Gas Safe plumbing technician to carry out that task for you. It is quite likely that you will also be updating the flooring when you install your new kitchen. Whether the new flooring is going to be natural stone, wood block, engineered wood, laminate, vinyl or tiles, your Bishop's Waltham kitchen fitter should be able to do that task for you, however you may opt to use a flooring specialist in this instance.
It's always recommended that you use a fully qualified and experienced electrician for all your electrical installations in a new kitchen, and it is unusual if some form of electrical work isn't required, unless you're simply upgrading "like-for-like" cupboards. On occasion you'll find a kitchen installer in Bishop's Waltham who's Part-P qualified, mostly they'll "try their hand" at elementary electrical tasks, which should certainly set off the alarm bells.
Since most Bishop's Waltham kitchen fitters have a grounding in either carpentry or carpentry and joinery, they will frequently be incapable of doing this type of work, and although some of them will have dabbled in basic electrics and plumbing to broaden their capabilities, they will usually have a "sparky" at the end of the phone to do electrical work when it's needed.
You'll have to ask the kitchen fitter about the electrics at the beginning, preferably when you are collecting quotations and selecting the ideal installer. Extra cash will likely be needed for the electrical work, if this isn't built into the quote, and one thing is certain - "sparkys" do not come cheap, so expect to see a fairly large bill.
Kitchen electrics now comes under part P of the building regulations, and dependent on the design and layout of your kitchen you could very well need a substantial amount of electrical work doing. Things like new plug sockets, light switches, in-plinth heating, lighting and isolation switches, may be the sort of electrical work that you will require.

Floor Levelling Bishop's Waltham
It may be essential to get the floor levelled before fixing the base units when you're doing a new kitchen installation, in particular if you're demolishing any walls (pantry, broom cupboard, etc) to expand the kitchen area.
