Kitchen Fitters Looe Cornwall

If, like a lot of homeowners in Looe, you're intending to purchase your kitchen from a large chain such as Wickes, Homebase or B&Q, you will find that they offer a kitchen installation service. This is obviously an extra cost which is added to the price of the kitchen. If you already have a price in your head, you may find that the charges they present you with is roughly double what you envisioned. The reason for this is that they will give roughly 50% of this to the installers and keep half as profit for themselves.

So, there are certain benefits from using these fitting services, the primary one being there are some guarantees included, and you can contact the original company for compensation if there are any serious issues. Having said that, because local fitters from the Looe area will most likely be used by someone like Magnet, there is no reason why you can't save yourself half of the money and book such services directly. Furthermore, should any issues occur during or after the installation process, any reliable Looe kitchen fitter will provide some sort of aftercare service, and they are likely to be much more easily approachable than going through the infamously "clunky" and sluggish complaints system of a massive national company.

You should also bear in mind that when purchasing fitted kitchens from some of these large DIY companies, problems can quite often occur. Amongst the most common complaints are for not including everything in your order, having parts, fittings and fixtures missing from individual packs and delivering incorrect goods. In almost all fitted kitchens from DIY stores, the cupboards will come flat-packed, so they will need to be put together in-situ, it's crucial that all the boxes are meticulously checked on delivery, because missing items can lead to significant delays to the installation.

Because of all of these concerns, and others I won't mention at this point, lots of kitchen fitters in Looe aren't keen to work for such diy chains, and are not even keen to fit kitchens which have been supplied by them. So, before going too far ask around and see what the feedback is. While acknowledging that, some of the kitchen cabinets from these sources are of reasonable quality and usually really good value, and when installed properly should last for a good many years.

Kitchen Fitter Looe (PL13)

There are a number of ways to find reliable tradesmen, and a good place to begin is with family and friends. If anybody you know has had kitchen installation or remodelling work done in the past, you could ask if the fitter was trustworthy and did a decent job. Somewhere around eighty percent of people in Looe would prefer word of mouth recommendations over any other form of endorsement or review, therefore you should put this to good use whenever this opportunity presents itself. Even if a particular kitchen installer has been recommended by someone, you still ought to get at least 2 or 3 estimates from different companies locally, to give you an idea of prices.

Many kitchen fitters in Looe will offer you a free on-site survey where they'll accurately measure your space, discuss cabinet designs, room layouts, materials and colour schemes, and draw up a detailed plan of your new kitchen. By working from this plan and according to the choices that you've made, they'll be able to give you an exact quote for your kitchen, and a time scale for the completion of the work. If you're confident about measuring the kitchen yourself, you can jot down your own layout and pop along to the nearest Magnet or B&Q, where they'll figure everything out on their kitchen software program, if that's the route you want to take.

For a kitchen to be installed correctly it is essential that the tradesman doing it has lots of joinery experience and skills, and the background for most seasoned kitchen fitters in Looe is that they'll likely have completed an apprenticeship of some sort. Skillful in the use of both electric and hand tools, they should be able to take out your existing kitchen in Looe and replace it with your new design swiftly, professionally and skillfully.

When your old kitchen cabinets are being removed there is a very good likelihood that some supplemental work will emerge which wasn't observed at the design and planning stage. Because of the time that has passed since your original kitchen was installed the floors and walls behind and under the cabinets will have been essentially neglected and forgotten. A few of these areas may be damaged and will need to be mended in order for your new kitchen to fit neatly in position, and your kitchen fitter will need to deal with this if the work is to progress without issues.

You might find that your kitchen installer is a member of the Gas Safe Register, which means he may mend or replace gas ovens and other gas cooking appliances, but if not then he will bring in a Gas Safe registered tradesman to carry out that work for you. When a new fitted kitchen is being installed it's also quite common to replace all the flooring, because in many instances the existing flooring will be damaged or unsuitable. Although you might prefer to use a flooring specialist for this task, your Looe kitchen fitter will likely be quite able to replace solid wood, laminate, ceramic tiles, natural stone, vinyl plank or engineered wood flooring as an element of the installation.

It's usually advisable to use a professional electrician for all your electrical tasks in a new kitchen, and it's pretty much certain that some sort of electrical work will be necessary, unless you're just replacing "like-for-like" cabinets. Occasionally you will come across a kitchen installer in Looe who is Part-P qualified for electrics, mostly they will "try their hand" at elementary electrical jobs, which should definitely set the alarm bells ringing.

Since most Looe kitchen fitters have their qualifications in either carpentry or carpentry and joinery, they will often be incapable of doing this type of work, and though some will have dabbled in electrics and plumbing to broaden their skills, they will generally have a "sparky" on board to do electrical work when it's required.

You'll have to ask potential kitchen fitters about the electrical side of things in the early phases, preferably when you're gathering quotations and choosing the best installer. Extra funds could be needed for the electrics, if this isn't included in the quote, and one thing is certain - electricians don't come cheap, so count on a pretty big bill.

Depending on the layout and design of your new kitchen you might need a substantial amount of electrical work doing, and this is now covered by part P of the building regs. Electrical work could maybe include lights, light switches, isolation switches, extra plug sockets and heating.

Choosing The Right Style Of Kitchen Sink

As perhaps the most functional part of any kitchen in Looe, you might imagine that the 'style and design' of the sink in your kitchen is mostly irrelevant. Surely all you require is an average stainless steel sink for washing the dishes, correct? Wrong! Actually, sinks come in a whole host of shapes, sizes and materials, and your choice of sink can have big practical and aesthetic ramifications for your kitchen. But, what are the different sorts of kitchen sinks that are available, and how could they affect the way in which your kitchen is used? Here's an outline of the sinks on the market right now:

Kitchen Sinks Looe

Styles: While one-bowl sinks are standard in domestic kitchens in Looe, there's much to be said for a couple of the alternatives. Two-bowl sinks, for instance, offer ample space washing-up and food preparation at the same time, without any risk of dropping your carrots into soapy water. Nevertheless, they do take up a fair bit of space, which means they might not be suitable for smaller kitchens in Looe where space is tight.

One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer an excellent compromise, providing an extra area that doesn't use too much of your available surface space. There's still a lot to be said, though, for large one bowl sinks, especially if you have a dishwasher. A large single sink enables you to soak bigger pans and dishes that won't easily fit into the machine.

Mounting Options: With regards to the options for mounting, you can go for surface, set-in or under-mount sinks. Surface-mounted sinks are dropped into a pre-cut hole in the worktop surface, and provide a decent all-round mounting option for many different kinds of worktop material. For a more subtle touch, you could think about an under-mount sink, which is fitted below the worktop and generates no rim between sink and worktop surface. This makes the area around the sink much easier to clean. Finally, set-in sinks are built into the worktop and are made out of the same material, which offers a seamless aesthetic that works perfectly with granite.

Materials: Stainless steel is the most popular sink material around and with good reason. Cost-effective, hard-wearing and easy to maintain, its sleek metallic appearance fits seamlessly into virtually any kitchen. If, however, you are looking for something a touch different for your own kitchen in Looe, you might want to consider granite, which is incredibly resistant to scraping and scuffing, and offers a contemporary aesthetic which is both understated and imposing.

If you cannot afford granite, though, you might be attracted to composite sinks, which are made from a blend of natural materials and fillers. Coming in at a marginally lower price, they provide some of granite's best qualities, making them a good choice. Alternatively, you might go for the classic tones of a ceramic sink, which combines a brilliant white material with a high-gloss finish to produce a stunning focal point in the kitchen.

And there it is. A virtually endless selection of choices available, meaning that you are sure to find a sink that's a good fit for your kitchen in Looe.

Cabinet Door Hinge Adjustments

Unit doors becoming misaligned or loose is an extremely common problem with existing kitchens in Looe. In time, the cupboard hinges will get rocky, move about, or even get detached altogether, no matter how professionally the kitchen was installed in the first place. To save you having to call in a handyman or kitchen specialist to do this job for you, it might be a good idea to learn how to re-adjust these hinges yourself. If you start fiddling around with your screwdriver without knowing what you're up to, it will seem a hopeless task, but as soon as you know the correct process and understand which screws to rotate and in which direction, it can actually be quite easy. When the doors and hinges have all been adjusted correctly, you will be surprised by the difference in the overall appearance of your kitchen. You'll be able to perfectly space out your doors and make sure that all of the unit doors close properly and without bashing into one another, once you have the hang of it. I have included a YouTube video on the right, which plainly describes the hinge adjustment process in pictures rather than in words, which I'm sure you will find simpler to follow. So, take a look at the video and learn the technique for adjusting your own kitchen cabinet hinges.

Skip Hire Looe

Many local councils also stipulate that the disposal of any garden or building materials must be done in a managed and environmentally safe way. This means that you might be obligated to transport your waste products to an approved recycling and disposal facility, if you're to keep on the right side of the law. Instead of going through the hassle of constant journeys to the nearest council site, you could look at renting a skip, and throw your rubbish in there.

Based on what waste products are going to be generated by your kitchen project, you can have a discussion with your kitchen fitter and the skip hire service that this is alright.

Hazardous waste disposal comes under stringent guidelines, and managing it's best left for the experts. Your kitchen fitter and the skip hire company will work together to make sure that all the rules and guidelines are complied with.

An ideal scenario is if you have an area when a skip can be positioned in your garden or drive. If however you've only got parking on the main road or no suitable area in your garden you could talk to your nearest neighbours and ask whether they could leave you some space close to the work area.
