Kitchen Fitters Melton Mowbray Leicestershire (LE13): It's perfectly possible that, as for lots of others in Melton Mowbray, your favourite room in the whole house is the kitchen. When all is said and done, it's the room where you and your loved ones interact and gather together. Given that, over the years, countless incredible memories are going to be created there, it's vital that the kitchen is a place where the whole family can feel comfortable and at ease, in addition to being functional and looking great. You could dramatically improve your day-to-day family life by deciding to update your kitchen into a place that everybody enjoys and wants to hang out in, and at the same time provide both friends and loved ones with a cheerful meeting place.
Installing a newis not one of those tasks that you need to carry out on a regular basis, so when the time eventually arrives to upgrade your weary old kitchen perhaps you should employ a skilled Melton Mowbray to make certain your new units look great and are fitted correctly.
If you are purchasing your kitchen from a company such as Homebase, B&Q or Wickes, you'll probably be offered a fitting service, and of course at an extra cost. This can often be a bit of a surprise (especially if you already had a price in mind), because there is a large mark-up on this type of service, and it will probably be twice as much as you were envisioning. The installers will only be paid roughly fifty percent of this fee and the rest will be extra profit of the company in question.
So, there are certain benefits to be gained from using these pre-booked installation services, the primary one being that guarantees are included, and you are able to go back to the company for compensation if there are any problems. Having said that, you can cut your bill in half by arranging these services yourself, and there is a fair chance that you might even finish up using the same installation service because a concern like Wickes commonly use local fitters from around Melton Mowbray in any case. Also, any reputable Melton Mowbray kitchen installer will provide some form of aftercare service in the event that any issues occur, and they are likely to be more approachable than trudging through a large company's complaints process which is often painfuly "clunky" and slow.
When purchasing fitted kitchens from some of these big DIY companies, it pays to be be aware that certain problems are very likely to crop up, and some firms are notorious for this. Amongst the most common occurrences are not delivering everything you've ordered, having fixtures, parts and fittings missing from individual packs and delivering the wrong stuff. In almost all fitted kitchens from DIY stores, the cabinets will come in flat-pack cartons, so they will need to be assembled in-situ, it is vital that everything is carefully checked on delivery, as any missing items can lead to massive delays to the installation process.
Because of all of these issues, and others I won't mention here, lots of kitchen fitters in Melton Mowbray won't work for such diy chains, and are not even keen to fit kitchens supplied by them. Therefore, ask around first and get some feedback. That being said, if installed professionally and cared for, some of the kitchens from these companies should last for a fair few years, and are good value and of acceptable quality.
A recommendation by friends or acquaintances is a great place to start when you are searching for a kitchen fitter, but this needn't be the sole factor affecting your choice. After all, word of mouth recommendations are more widely accepted, and this will come as no great surprise, as we all like to chat about services and products with our friends and relatives. You should prepare a shortlist of a minimum of three different tradesmen and obtain an estimate from each of them.
Most kitchen fitters in Melton Mowbray will provide a free home survey where they will precisely measure your space, discuss colour schemes, layouts, materials and cabinet designs, and then draft a detailed plan of your kitchen. From this carefully designed plan, they'll be in a position to give you a definitive quotation, according to your choice of kitchen. You could of course sketch out your own rough plan, if you're comfortable with doing the measurements by yourself, then pop along to to Homebase or B&Q, where a software program will calculate the layout and tell you where everything will fit.
To give them the necessary capabilities for this type of work, most professional kitchen fitters in Melton Mowbray will have done some type of apprenticeship scheme with their employers, and will as a rule have loads of carpentry and joinery experience and know-how to draw on. They'll be confident and adept in the use of a whole host of hand and electric tools, and will appropriately use these to remove your dreary old kitchen and exchange it for a brand new one that you can enjoy for many years to come.
When your existing kitchen cabinets are being taken out there is a fairly good chance that some extra work will emerge that was not noticed during the planning stage. Owing to the years that have passed since your existing kitchen was put in the floors and walls under and behind the units will have been largely forgotten and neglected. There may be parts that your kitchen fitter ought to correct to make certain your new kitchen will endure until you wish to alter the design once again.
If your lovely new kitchen design has gas appliances included you'll have to be sure that either your kitchen installer is Gas Safe registered or can call in someone who is. It is extremely likely that you'll also be updating the flooring when you install your new kitchen. Whether the new floor surface is going to be tiles, engineered wood, solid wood, laminated, stone or vinyl plank, your Melton Mowbray kitchen fitter should be able to also do that task for you, although you may prefer to use a flooring specialist.
There will be not many kitchen installation jobs in Melton Mowbray that won't call for extra electrical work, and although a few kitchen fitters will "have a crack" at basic electrics, and even fewer are Part-P certified, it is probably better to bring in an experienced electrician for this type of work.
Because most Melton Mowbray kitchen installers will have their qualifications in either woodwork or carpentry & joinery, they will sometimes be unable to do this sort of work, and though some of them might have dabbled in electrics and plumbing to expand their capabilities, they'll usually have an electrician at the end of the phone to do electrical work when it's needed.
Ask questions about this during the quotation stage, since you will have to set aside extra funds for the electrics, and "sparkys" certainly don't come cheap!
Dependant upon the layout and design of your kitchen you could very well need quite a bit of electrical work doing, and for some time now this has come under part P of the building regulations. Things like heating, new sockets, isolation switches, lights and light switches, may be the kind of electrical installations that you'll need.
