Kitchen Fitters Hythe Hampshire (CT21): For a lot of families in Hythe the most obvious area in which they can gather and communicate with each other is the kitchen. As time passes a great many special memories will be made in the kitchen, therefore it's important that it is a space where everybody feels comfortable. Although, of course it depends on how much space you have available, turning your kitchen into a place that everybody enjoys and wants to be in can improve your family life.
Putting in a newis not a task that you need to do too frequently, therefore when the time comes to replace your existing kitchen why not utilize a skilled Hythe to be sure your new kitchen units look good and are installed safely and correctly.
If you are purchasing your fitted kitchen from a company such as Homebase, B&Q or Wickes, you will most likely be offered an installation service, and of course at an additional cost. There might be a quick intake of breath when you're presented with a price for this service, since it will probably be at least double what you were hoping to pay. The reason for this is that they'll give roughly 50 percent of this to the actual installers and keep half for themselves as profit.
So, these sub-contracted fitting services do carry a few benefits, but not really enough to explain such a price hike. They are big companies, therefore you'll probably be recompensed if there are any issues, and the installation does certainly come with a set of guarantees. Nonetheless, because local kitchen fitters from the Hythe area will probably be used by a concern like Magnet, there is no reason why you can't cut 50 per cent off the bill and arrange these services directly. Local Hythe kitchen installers will still have their reputations to maintain, and will usually be quite happy to resolve any problems, so you won't only save money, but you'll in addition avoid the need to wade through the infamously "clunky" and sluggish complaints process of a massive national DIY chain!
It also pays to bear in mind that when buying kitchens from some of these large DIY companies, issues quite often occur. Amongst the most common complaints are for not including everything you have ordered, having fixtures, fittings and parts missing from individual cartons and delivering incorrect goods. Virtually all DIY chain kitchens come in flat-pack cartons, so they have to be assembled on-site. You'll have to check all the packages on delivery (not as easy as it sounds), and rigorously follow up on any missing items, because the installation process can be delayed for days or even weeks when stuff is omitted, and that may be costly and inconvenient.
It has been quite widely reported that due to the issues with these products, many kitchen installers in Hythe don't even like to work for these companies. In which case have a potential kitchen fitter arranged before ordering. With that said, if installed properly, some of the kitchen units from such suppliers should last for many years, and are good value for money and of decent quality.
Kitchens are installed in Hythe pretty much every day, so it is fairly likely that a person in your social circle will have had a kitchen fitted in the past, so ask family and friends for a recommendation. Word of mouth is frequently regarded as better than commercial advertising and reviews, since it gives a clearer idea of quality, and comes directly from the mouth of somebody who you trust. It is still a good idea to obtain at least three different quotations from other tradesmen locally, even if a particular kitchen fitter has been highly recommended by someone you know.
A competent Hythe kitchen fitter will draw up a plan of your new kitchen after doing an on-site survey and precisely measuring the available space. They'll discuss materials, layouts, cabinet designs and colour schemes, in order to prepare the most comprehensive plan possible. By working from this plan and determined by the choices that you have made, they'll be in a position to give you an approximate quote for your kitchen, and a timeframe for the completion of the work. If you feel confident about measuring yourself, you can sketch out your own plan and take it into the nearest Homebase or Wickes, where they will work everything out on a software program, if that's the route you wish to take.
To furnish them with the required capabilities for this type of work, most professional kitchen fitters in Hythe will have undertaken some form of apprenticeship scheme through their employer, and will typically have plenty of joinery experience and know-how to rely on. Trained in the use of both hand and electric tools, they will strip out your existing kitchen in Hythe and change it for your new layout swiftly, skillfully and professionally.
When your existing kitchen cabinets are being taken out there's a pretty good chance that some additional work will emerge that wasn't included in the design and planning phase. On account of the years that have elapsed since the existing kitchen was put in the walls and floor behind and under the cabinets will have been essentially forgotten and neglected. There might be parts which your kitchen fitter must redress to make sure your brand new kitchen will last you for as long as you like the design.
If a gas oven or gas appliances need to be installed in your new fitted kitchen in Hythe you'll need to be sure that a Gas Safe engineer completes this element of the work for you. Occasionally, but very seldom, a long established kitchen installer will have gone the extra mile to being Gas Safe registered - if not he will be able to bring in somebody who is. It is fairly likely that you will also be upgrading the flooring when you get your new kitchen fitted. This is a challenge that a proficient kitchen installer in Hythe can undertake without any difficulty and should also be capable of working with whatever materials you would like; laminated, engineered wood, timber, vinyl, natural stone or tiles.
There will be not many kitchen installation jobs in Hythe that won't involve additional electrical work, and while a few kitchen fitters will "try their hand" at basic electrics, and some are even Part-P certified, it's probably better to bring in a qualified electrician for this kind of work.
Given that most Hythe kitchen installers have got experience in either woodworking or carpentry & joinery, they will frequently be wary of doing this type of work, and although some will have dabbled in electrics and plumbing to broaden their skills, they'll most often have an electrician at the end of the phone to do this work when required.
You will want to ask potential kitchen fitters about the electrics at the beginning, preferably when you're obtaining quotations and choosing the perfect installer. Extra cash could be needed for the electrical work, if this is not itemised in the estimate, and one thing is certain - "sparkys" don't come cheap, so count on a fairly substantial bill.
You may need quite a bit of electrical work doing, dependant upon the design and layout of your kitchen and this is now covered by part P of the building regs, and needs to be done by an ELECSA or NICEIC authorised contractor. Such things as underfloor heating, light switches, lighting, new power outlets and isolation switches, could be the type of electrical work that you will require.
