It is advisable to seek out a competent professional when you are having a kitchen installed, and unless you are a carpenter/joiner, or are an excellent DIYer, it isn't likely that you will be able to install your own kitchen. A skilled kitchen fitter in Bishopstoke will be doing this work on a daily basis, and will have encountered every possible issue or situation that could be involved with the task.

If you're buying your new kitchen from a company such as B&Q, Homebase or Wickes, you will likely be offered an installation service, and of course at an added cost. There might be a sharp intake of breath when you're given the price for this, as it will probably be around double what you were hoping to pay. There is a logical reason for this, and that's because the installers themselves will be given 50 percent of this fee, whilst the company in question will bung the other fifty percent into their already overflowing coffers.

Now, there are a couple of benefits from using these pre-booked installation services, the main one being there are some guarantees included, and you can contact the company for recompense if there are any problems. However, as someone like Wickes will probably be using local installers from the Bishopstoke area, there's no real reason why you can't simply book such services directly, and basically half the bill. Moreover, any professional Bishopstoke kitchen fitter will offer some sort of after care service in the event that any problems crop up, and they are likely to be easier to deal with than wading through a large DIY company's complaints system which is often excruciatingly snail-paced and "clunky".

You should also keep in mind that various issues are very likely to crop up when buying fitted kitchens from some of the large companies. They're renowned for not including everything listed in your order, having parts, fittings and fixtures missing from individual packs and delivering incorrect stuff. Virtually all DIY store kitchens come in flat pack form, so they have to be assembled on-site. You will need to check all the boxes on delivery (easier said than done), and rigorously chase up any missing items, given that installation can be held up for weeks when items are missing, and that can be inconvenient and costly.

Due to all these issues, and others I won't mention at this point, some kitchen fitters in Bishopstoke aren't keen to work for such diy chains, and are not even that keen to fit kitchens supplied by them. Therefore, ask around first and get some feedback on these kitchens. With that said, if fitted professionally, some of the kitchen units from such sources will last for many years, and are good value and of acceptable quality.

An endorsement by family or friends is a good place to start when you're hunting for a kitchen fitter, but do not let this be the only factor affecting your choice. At the end of the day, word of mouth testimonials are more likely to be accepted, and this comes as no great surprise, as we all love to talk about goods and services to our family and friends. Even if a specific kitchen fitter has been recommended by someone, you should still get at least three or four quotations from other tradesmen locally, to provide you with a broad range of what you should be paying.

A free home survey will be offered by many kitchen fitters in Bishopstoke, during which they will accurately measure your space, go through cabinet designs, materials, colour schemes and room layouts. They will then draw up a plan of your kitchen, in line with what was agreed. In line with the choices you make, and working from this plan, they'll be able to supply you with an exact price quote for your new kitchen. If you're comfortable about measuring the kitchen by yourself, you can draw up your own plan and take it into a nearby B&Q or Homebase, where they'll figure everything out on a software program, if that's the route you prefer to take.

With plenty of carpentry expertise and experience to draw on, most competent kitchen installers in Bishopstoke will have accomplished some type of apprenticeship scheme with their employer, to furnish them with the essential skills for this work. Employing their abilities in using both power and hand tools they will rip out your existing kitchen in Bishopstoke and professionally, correctly and swiftly exchange it for your new one.

Your chosen kitchen fitter could easily discover areas that need extra work during the removal of your existing kitchen cabinets. Long neglected floors and walls under and behind the original kitchen units will have been hidden away for quite a few years because of the time that has gone by since they were first put in. There are almost certain to be problems that have to be rectified and sections that need attention if your kitchen is to last for as many years as you want it to.

If a gas oven or gas appliances are included in your new kitchen in Bishopstoke you'll need to make certain that a Gas Safe registered engineer undertakes this aspect of the work for you. Occasionally, but very rarely, a long established kitchen installer will have made the effort to be Gas Safe registered - if not he will be able to call on someone who is. You may also be asking to change old floor surfaces in the kitchen area which is typical whenever new kitchens are installed. Although you might prefer to use a flooring specialist for this task, your Bishopstoke kitchen installer will probably be quite able to replace engineered wood, laminated, stone, tiles, vinyl plank or wood block flooring as an element of the whole installation.

A certain amount of electrical work will be necessary in the majority of new kitchen installation projects in Bishopstoke. You may be fortunate and find a kitchen fitter who is Part-P certified for electrics, while others will "take a shot" at basic electrics, however in most instances you will need a fully qualified electrician.

Since most Bishopstoke kitchen fitters will have a background in either woodwork or carpentry and joinery, they'll often be incapable of doing this type of work, and though some may have dabbled in basic plumbing and electrics to widen their abilities, they'll most often have a "sparky" on board to do electrical work when needed.

You will have to ask the kitchen fitter about the electrical part of the job at the beginning, ideally when you are obtaining quotations and deciding on the ideal installer. Extra funds may be needed for the electrics, if this is not included in the estimate, and one thing is definite - "sparkys" do not come cheap, so expect to see a fairly large bill.

Electrical work in kitchens is governed by part P of the building regulations, and dependent on the design and layout of your kitchen you might need a substantial amount of electrical work to be done. Electrical installations may perhaps include extra power outlets, light switches, in-plinth heating, isolation switches and lights.

By using a properly trained and experienced kitchen installer in Bishopstoke you will be certain to receive all the relevant advice and guidance with regards to how you can best use the available space, and the different ways to transform the look of your existing kitchen through the use of the latest kitchen innovations and industry developments. You can fully expect to finish up with an ultra-modern, space-saving kitchen that will be the envy of your friends and neighbours. The response that you'll be hoping for is that they won't believe it's the same room that you started out with.

Floor Levelling

It might be necessary to get the floor levelled before installing the base units when you are doing a new kitchen installation, in particular if you are demolishing any walls (pantry, broom cupboard, etc) to enlarge the kitchen area. A bit of work on the floor will likely also be required if you're installing underfloor heating, less so with electric than water. A floor levelling screed will be satisfactory for this job more often than not, and the kitchen fitter will have included this in the original quote (if the need for it was obvious from the start), and where necessary he'll bring in a flooring specialist, or complete the work himself.

Kitchen Cabinet Door Hinge Adjustments

Among the most commonplace problems that you will run across with an existing kitchen in Bishopstoke is the doors getting wobbly or becoming misaligned. It matters not who fitted the kitchen in the first place, or how competently it was done, with prolonged use, the hinges will get sloppy, move about, or even get completely detached. It's always a wise idea to figure out how to adjust these door hinges yourself, because it will save you bringing in a kitchen fitter or carpenter to do the job for you. If you choose to start messing around with a screwdriver with no knowledge of what you are doing, it can seem like a hopeless task, but once you know the right process and understand which of the adjustment screws to turn and which way, it can actually be fairly easy. Once all the hinges and doors have been carefully adjusted, it can make a tremendous improvement to the look of your kitchen. With a bit of practice you will quickly have the perfect spacing around your cupboard doors, and prevent them from banging into each other and causing damage. I've included a YouTube video on the right, which plainly explains the hinge adjustment procedure in pictures instead of words. So, have a look at the video and learn the technique for adjusting your own cabinet hinges.
