Kitchen Fitters Bridgend Wales

If, like a lot of homeowners in Bridgend, you're intending to buy your kitchen from a big chain like Wickes, Homebase or B&Q, you'll discover that they offer a kitchen installation service. This is obviously an extra cost which is added to the price for the kitchen units and appliances. There could well be a sharp intake of breath when you are presented with the price for this, because it will probably be more than twice as much as you were hoping to pay. This is because they'll give approximately half of this to the actual installers and keep the other 50 percent as profit for themselves.

There are naturally certain benefits from using these (contracted out) installation services. They save you having to waste time your own fitter, there are specific guarantees provided, and any serious problems occurring will be compensated for or resolved. Having said that, because local kitchen fitters from the Bridgend area will most likely be used by a concern like Wickes, there is no rationale why you cannot save yourself half of the money and arrange such services directly. Moreover, any reputable Bridgend kitchen fitter will provide some sort of after care service in the event that any issues occur, and they are likely to be more approachable than battling through a company's complaints process which can be notoriously "clunky" and snail-paced.

It also pays to be aware that various issues quite often crop up when purchasing new kitchens from some of these larger DIY chains. Things such as not including everything you have ordered, delivering incorrect products and having parts, fittings and fixtures missing from individual cartons, are what they're most renowned for. Virtually all DIY store kitchens come flat-packed, so they have to be assembled on-site. You'll have to carefully check all the packages on delivery (no easy feat), and rigorously follow up on any omissions, given that the installation process can be delayed for ages when stuff is omitted, and that could be costly and inconvenient.

It has been widely reported that due to the concerns with these kitchens, many kitchen fitters in Bridgend prefer not to work for these chains. In which case have a potential kitchen fitter arranged before you order. With that said, if installed correctly, some of the kitchen cabinets from these companies will last for a fair few years, and are value for money and of reasonable quality.

Therefore, if you have friends or family who've recently had a kitchen fitted, and were happy with the outcome you could ask if they are prepared to recommend them. Word of mouth is recognised as the most trusted sort of endorsement, and around 80 percent of householders in Bridgend would prefer this sort of recommendation above any other.

If you are confident about measuring yourself, you can draw up your own layout and take it into the nearest Magnet or Wickes, where they'll figure everything out on a software program, if that's the route you prefer to take.

Whilst it isn't essential for a kitchen fitter to have completed an apprenticeship, many of the most capable ones will have done this, and their experience will likely be in carpentry and joinery, where they will have picked up all the necessary skills for installing a kitchen. They will be adept in the use of a wide variety of power and hand tools, and will correctly use these to take out your old kitchen and replace it with a brand new one that you and your family can use and enjoy for many years to come.

Kitchen Worktops

Kitchen Worktop Fitters Bridgend (01656)

One thing that certainly finishes off your kitchen is the countertop. If your new kitchen is going to look perfect, it's essential that the worktops are cut and fitted in the correct way. The functionality and look of your fitted kitchen can be significantly reduced if the kitchen worktops are fitted in a shoddy fashion.

Ensure that your chosen Bridgend kitchen fitter is up to the task before he starts, ask to see photos, especially close-ups of the worktop joints. Kitchen countertops can be made out of many different materials and are available in a massive choice of designs and colours. The most popular materials used in kitchen worktops are: solid timber, granite, copper, quartz, resin, marble and laminates (chipboard or MDF).

Everything but the Kitchen Sink!

As maybe the most practical element of any kitchen in Bridgend, you may feel that the 'style and design' of your kitchen sink is basically immaterial. Surely all you require is an average stainless steel basin for washing the dishes, correct? Wrong! Actually, sinks come in an array of materials, sizes and shapes, and your selection of sink could have huge practical and aesthetic ramifications for your kitchen. But, what are the different sorts of kitchen sinks available, and how will they impact on the way that you use your kitchen? Here's a summarization of the sinks on the market right now:

Kitchen Sinks Bridgend

Styles: Whilst one-bowl sinks are almost ubiquitous in most domestic kitchens in Bridgend, there's much to be said for some of the alternatives. Two-bowl sinks, for example, provide ample space washing-up and food preparation at the same time, without the risk of dropping your potatoes into soapy water. Nonetheless, they do occupy a lot of space, which means they may not be suited to smaller kitchens in Bridgend where space is tight.

One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer a decent compromise, providing an additional area that doesn't eat up too much of your available surface space. There is still much to be said for large one bowl sinks, particularly if you've got a dishwasher. A large single sink permits you to soak larger dishes and pans that won't fit in the machine.

Materials: Stainless steel is the most popular sink material on the market and with good reason. Hard-wearing, cost-effective and easy to maintain, its sleek metallic appearance fits seamlessly into just about any kitchen. If, however, you are looking for something different for your own kitchen in Bridgend, you may want to think about granite, which is exceptionally resistant to scuffs and scrapes, and offers a contemporary aesthetic that is both understated and imposing.

If you are unable to afford granite, though, you might be drawn to composite sinks, which are made from a blend of natural materials and fillers. Available at a marginally lower price, they offer some of the best qualities of granite, which makes them a great choice. Alternatively, you might opt for the classic tones of ceramic sinks, which combine a brilliant white material with a high-gloss finish to create an impressive focal point in your kitchen.

Mounting Options: In relation to the options for mounting, you can opt for set-in, under-mount or surface sinks. Surface-mounted sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the surface of the worktop, and offer a good all-round mounting option for many different kinds of worktop material. For a subtler touch, you could consider an under-mount sink, which is fitted below the worktop and creates no rim between sink and worktop surface. This makes the area around the sink easier to clean. Last of all, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made of the same material, which offers a seamless look which works perfectly with granite.

And that's it. A more or less limitless range of available choices, meaning that you are certain to find a sink that complements your home in Bridgend.

Hinge Adjustments to Cabinet Doors

Doors getting loose or becoming misaligned is a really widespread issue with existing kitchens in Bridgend. With time, the hinges will move around, get sloppy, or even get detached altogether, irrespective of how expertly the kitchen was fitted originally. It's probably a wise idea to figure out how to adjust these hinges for yourself, as it will save you having to call in a carpenter or kitchen fitter to do this for you. The procedure is essentially quite simple, as soon as you know which of the adjustment screws to turn and in which direction to rotate them. When the hinges and doors have all been correctly adjusted, you'll be surprised by the difference in the overall appearance of your kitchen. With a bit of practice you'll soon have the perfect spacing around your unit doors, and stop them from slamming into each other and causing damage. The YouTube video on this page plainly explains the procedure and in a much clearer way that I possibly could express it with text. So, please make time to view the video and you will soon be adjusting your own cabinet hinges and making your kitchen look fantastic.

Kitchen Island Installation Bridgend

An increasingly popular feature in contemporary kitchens is the installation of a kitchen island. It provides extra worktop space for meal preparation and can also serve as a gathering spot for family and guests.

Kitchen Island Installation Bridgend

A competent kitchen installation company can help with the design and installation of a custom kitchen island that fits the specific needs of the householder. The kitchen fitter will take into account the kitchen's layout and size, as well as the island's desired appearance and functionality.

Among the commonly sought features of kitchen islands are built-in appliances such as a sink or hob, ample storage space in cabinets or drawers, and seating areas for dining or entertaining. The services of a professional kitchen installation company may extend to electrical work and plumbing, which is necessary to ensure the proper installation of integrated appliances on the kitchen island. What's more, the kitchen installers can advise on how to maintain and care for the island, including cleaning and repairs, to ensure it remains in excellent condition for many years.

To summarise, with the help of professional kitchen fitters, homeowners can enjoy a custom-designed and installed kitchen island complete with integrated appliances, seating areas and storage space, as well as electrical and plumbing services and advice on care and upkeep.
