Kitchen Fitters Kidlington Oxfordshire

If you are purchasing your fitted kitchen from a company like Homebase, B&Q or Wickes, you will probably be offered a fitting service, and obviously at an extra cost. If you previously have a price in your head, you may find that the charges they give you is about twice as much as you envisioned, and that might not even include plumbing and electrics. The actual installers will only be paid roughly fifty percent of this fee and the remainder will be added to the profits of the company in question.

Now, there are some benefits to be gained from using these (contracted out) installation services, the main one being there are some guarantees included, and you are able to go back to the company if there are problems. Nonetheless, because local fitters from the Kidlington area will probably be used by a company like B&Q, there is no rationale why you can't cut fifty per cent off the bill and book those services directly. Additionally, should any issues arise during the installation process, any reliable Kidlington kitchen installer will provide some form of aftercare service, and they will probably be more easily approachable than trying to deal with the painfuly snail-paced and "clunky" complaints system of a huge national company.

You should also bear in mind that when buying fitted kitchens from some of these big DIY companies, issues are very likely to crop up. Among the most common complaints are for having parts, fixtures and fittings missing from individual cartons, not delivering everything in your order and delivering the wrong packages. Most DIY chain kitchens arrive in a flat-pack, so they have to be assembled on-site. You'll want to check all the packages on delivery (not as easy as it sounds), and rigorously follow up on any omissions, as the installation process can be held up for weeks when stuff is omitted, and that could be inconvenient and costly.

It's been widely reported that owing to the concerns with these products, some kitchen installers in Kidlington prefer not to work for these chains. In which case you should have a kitchen fitter lined up before you order. While acknowledging that, some of the kitchen cabinets from such companies are of reasonable quality and usually extremely good value, and when they are fitted professionally and looked after should last for a fair few years.

A free on-site survey will be offered by most kitchen fitters in Kidlington, during the course of which they will precisely measure your space, go over colour schemes, cabinet designs, materials and room layouts. They will then draw up a plan of your kitchen, in keeping with what was discussed. By working from this plan and heeding the choices that you have made, they'll be able to give you an exact quotation for your kitchen, and a time scale for the completion of the work. You could of course set out your own rough layout, if you are confident about doing the measuring up by yourself, then pop along to to B&Q or Homebase, where a software program will work out the perfect configuration and tell you where all the units will fit.

With a great deal of joinery and carpentry know-how and experience behind them, most competent kitchen fitters in Kidlington will have completed some sort of apprenticeship scheme through their employer, to give them the essential skills for this work. They will be confident in the use of a wide selection of hand and electric tools, and will correctly employ these to remove your dreary old kitchen and replace it with a fresh new one that you can enjoy for years to come.

During the removal of your unwanted cabinets and other units, your kitchen fitter could come across spots that need additional work. Neglected floors and walls under and behind the original kitchen cabinets will have been hidden for quite a few years due to the time that has passed since they were fitted. There may be areas which your kitchen fitter has to put right to ensure your new kitchen will endure until you wish to change the design once more.

In most cases, kitchen installation contractors or kitchen fitters in Kidlington will have a "sparky" who works with them, when electrical work is necessary, because kitchen fitters have normally trained as carpenters and joiners, and will only have dabbled in basic electrics and plumbing to widen their skills.

Find out about this at the quotation phase, because you will have to allow additional money for the electrics, and "sparkys" don't come cheap!

Hinge Adjustments to Cabinet Doors

Cabinet doors becoming wobbly or misaligned is an extremely common problem with existing kitchens in Kidlington. It matters not who originally installed the kitchen, or how competently it was done, with continual use, the door hinges will move around, get sloppy, or even get detached altogether.

As soon as you know which of the screws to turn and which way to rotate them, the procedure is actually quite simple. When the hinges and doors have all been correctly adjusted, you'll be astonished at the difference in the look and appearance of your kitchen. With a bit of practice you will quickly have the correct spacing around your cabinet doors, and stop them knocking into one another and causing damage. I've provided a YouTube video to the right, which gives a good explanation of the process with pictures rather than in words, which I'm sure you will find easier to understand. So, please make time to watch the video and you'll soon be adjusting your own hinges and making your kitchen look amazing.

Kitchen Floor Levelling Kidlington

If you are pulling down walls to increase the size of your available space (you could be removing a broom cupboard or larder for example), it may be required to carry out some floor levelling before putting in any units.

In most instances a floor levelling compound will be adequate for this job, and if the requirement for this was clear from the beginning, your kitchen fitter will have included this in the original quote, and either undertake it himself or call in a flooring specialist for the project.
