Kitchen Fitters Bridgend Wales

When purchasing a fitted kitchen from a big DIY chain like Wickes, B&Q or Homebase, it is generally possible to get an installation price straight from them. This can sometimes come as a bit of a shock (particularly if you'd already got a price in your head), since there is a big mark-up on this service, and it will probably be twice as much as you were expecting. There's 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 put the other 50% into their already bulging bank account.

Now, these sub-contracted fitting services do carry a few benefits, although not sufficient to explain such a mark-up. These are huge companies, so you will probably be recompensed if there are any serious problems, and the installation does certainly come with certain guarantees. On the other hand, you can reduce your installation bill by 50 per cent by booking such services yourself, and you could even wind up using the same installation service because a company like B&Q generally use local fitters from around Bridgend anyway. Locally based Bridgend kitchen installers still have to maintain their reputations, and will usually be happy to remedy any issues, so you can not only save yourself some cash, but in addition avoid the requirement to go through the woefully "clunky" and sluggish complaints system of a massive national DIY chain!

When buying kitchens from some of these large DIY companies, it pays to be bear in mind that certain issues quite often crop up, and some firms are well known for this. Things like not including everything you have ordered, delivering incorrect packages and having parts, fixtures and fittings missing from individual packs, are what they're most renowned for. Almost all DIY store kitchens arrive in flat pack format, so they'll need to be put together in-situ. You will want to meticulously check all the boxes on delivery (not as easy as it sounds), and rigorously follow up on any missing items, since the installation process can be held up for weeks when stuff is missing, and that may be costly and inconvenient.

Because of all these concerns, and others I won't mention here, a lot of kitchen installers in Bridgend are not keen to work for such diy chains, and are not even that keen to fit kitchens supplied by them. So, before going too far ask around and see what the feedback is. Having said that, some of the kitchens from such companies are of acceptable quality and usually incredibly good value, and if they are installed correctly should last for a good many years.

Kitchen Fitter Bridgend (CF31)

Whenever you're looking for a good kitchen fitter you could consider asking friends, family or neighbours for a recommendation, especially if any of them have had kitchen installation or remodelling work done recently. Studies have shown that approximately eighty per cent of people in Bridgend who are looking for a tradesman or service, favour word of mouth recommendations over any form of endorsement. It's still advisable to obtain at least two or three estimates from other tradesmen in the area, even though somebody you know has recommended a particular kitchen fitter.

Many kitchen fitters in Bridgend will offer a free on-site survey where they'll accurately measure the available space, discuss colour schemes, room layouts, materials and cabinet designs, and then draw up a plan for your new kitchen. In accordance with the decisions you've made, and referring to this plan, they'll be able to give you a detailed quote for your new kitchen. If you feel comfortable about measuring the kitchen yourself, you can sketch out your own layout and take it into the nearest B&Q or Magnet, where they'll work everything out on a software program, if that's the route you prefer to take.

To furnish them with the necessary capabilities for this sort of work, most experienced kitchen installers in Bridgend will have undertaken some form of apprenticeship scheme through their employers, and will ordinarily have loads of carpentry knowledge and experience to help them. Making use of their abilities in using both hand and electric tools they will carefully dismantle your existing kitchen in Bridgend and swiftly, professionally and efficiently exchange it for your brand new one.

When your old kitchen cabinets are being taken out there's a pretty good likelihood that some additional work will be highlighted that wasn't included in the design and planning phase. Neglected walls and floors under and behind the original kitchen cabinets will have been hidden away for quite a few years because of the time that's elapsed since they were installed. Some of these problem areas may be damaged and need to be repaired if your new kitchen is going to fit neatly in position, and your kitchen installer will have to take care of this if the work is going to progress without issues.

If your new kitchen layout has gas appliances incorporated you will need to ensure either your kitchen fitter is Gas Safe registered or can call on somebody who is, for this work. When a new fitted kitchen is being put in it's also quite common to swap all the flooring, because in most situations the existing flooring will be damaged or unsuitable. This is a task which a professional kitchen installer in Bridgend can handle without any difficulty and should be able to work with whichever materials you prefer; timber, vinyl plank, engineered wood, ceramic tiles, laminate or stone.

It's always wise to use a professional electrician for all electrical installations in your new kitchen, and it's almost certain that some type of electrical work will be needed, unless you are simply exchanging "like-for-like" cabinets. On occasion you'll find a kitchen installer in Bridgend who is Part-P qualified, more often still they'll "take a shot" at basic electrical tasks, which should definitely set off the alarm bells.

Nearly all kitchen installers in Bridgend have a background in carpentry and joinery, and some of them may have dabbled in plumbing and electrics to get them by, but even if they are incapable of doing this electrical work, they'll likely have an electrican on standby that they use for the majority of this work.

You'll need to ask the kitchen fitter about the electrical part of the job in the early stages, preferably when you are collecting quotations and deciding on the ideal installer. Additional money will likely be needed for the electrics, if this isn't built into the quote, and one thing is definite - "sparkys" do not come cheap, so expect to see a pretty big bill.

Electrical work in kitchens is governed by part P of the building regulations, and depending on the design and layout of your new kitchen you could very well need quite a lot of electrical work doing. Required electrical tasks may include such things as lights, isolation switches, new plug sockets, light switches and in-plinth heating.

A knowledgeable kitchen installer in Bridgend is going to have a thorough understanding of how best to use the space that you have and will be clued up on all of the most current kitchen innovations and design features to make certain you totally transform the appearance of your old kitchen, to get the very best outcome. Even if your existing kitchen is outdated and drab a talented installer will make certain that you finish up with an ultra-modern, space-saving kitchen that is certain to make your neighbours and friends green with envy. They will most likely have problems believing that it's even the same room that you started off with.

Kitchen Floor Levelling Bridgend

With most kitchen installations it could be necessary to level the floor before fitting any cabinets, particularly if you're knocking down any walls to expand the kitchen area (broom cupboard or pantry for instance). A bit of additional work on your kitchen floor will also be required if you're putting in underfloor heating, more so with water than electric. In most cases a self-levelling screed will be sufficient, and if the requirement for this was evident from the beginning, your kitchen fitter will have included this in the price, and either do it himself or bring in a flooring specialist for the project.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink!

As perhaps the most practical element of any kitchen in Bridgend, you might think that the 'style' of your kitchen sink is largely irrelevant. Surely all you need is a standard stainless steel sink for doing the dishes, right? Wrong. In fact, sinks come in a huge range of shapes, sizes and materials, and your choice of sink will have big practical and aesthetic ramifications for your kitchen in Bridgend. But what are the different types of sinks available, and how will they impact on the way that you use your kitchen? Here's a rundown of the sinks on offer:

Kitchen Sinks Bridgend

Mounting Options: In terms of mounting options, you can opt for surface, under-mount 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 consider an under-mount sink, which is installed below the counter and creates no rim between sink and worktop surface. This makes the area around the sink easier to clean. Finally, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made of the same material, which offers a seamless aesthetic that works perfectly with granite.

Materials: Stainless steel is the most popular sink material out there and with good reason. Durable, easy-to-maintain and very cost-effective, the sleek metallic effect fits seamlessly into almost any kitchen. If, however, you're looking for something different for your kitchen in Bridgend, you might want to consider granite, which is incredibly resistant to scuffs and scrapes, and offers a contemporary aesthetic that is both understated and imposing.

If you can't stretch your budget to high-quality granite, though, you might be attracted to composite sinks, which are made from a mixture of natural materials and fillers. Coming in at a slightly lower price, they offer some of granite's best qualities, which makes them a great choice. Alternatively, you could opt for the classic tones of ceramic sinks, which combine a brilliant white material with a high-gloss finish to create a dramatic focal point in the kitchen.

Styles: While one-bowl sinks are almost ubiquitous in domestic kitchens in Bridgend, there's a lot to be said for some of the alternatives. Two-bowl sinks, for example, offer enough space for you to do food preparation and washing-up at the same time, without the risk of dropping your carrots into soapy water. However, they do take up a lot of space, which means they might not be suited to smaller kitchens in Bridgend where space is tight.

One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer a good compromise, giving you an extra area that doesn't eat up too much surface space. There's still a lot to be said, though, for large one bowl sinks, especially if you have a dishwasher. A big single sink allows you to soak larger pans and dishes that won't fit in the machine.

And there you have it. An almost endless range of options available, meaning that you're sure to find a sink that is a great fit for your home in Bridgend.

Kitchen Design Bridgend

In regards to actually designing your new kitchen and purchasing the units there are really two or three ways that you can accomplish this. Firstly you could go to your local Bridgend kitchen suppliers or builders merchants and get them to plan and design your kitchen on software applications using measurements you have provided, or you can contact a kitchen fitter, who'll likely have similar software, but will also measure up and plan the kitchen for you. You might discover that your local kitchen fitter will be able to strike up a good deal with his supplier and obtain your kitchen at a good price. Kitchen fitters are without doubt the experts and are typically in a better position to appreciate what kind of kitchen and what design of cabinets will best fit your circumstances.
