Kitchen Fitters Newport-on-Tay Scotland

When purchasing a new kitchen from a big DIY chain such as Wickes, B&Q or Homebase, it's commonly possible to get a price for installation straight from them. This can sometimes come as a bit of a shock (particularly if you'd already got a price in your head), since there is a substantial mark-up on this kind of service, and it is likely to be twice as much as you were envisioning. There's a very good reason behind this, and that's because the actual fitters will receive 50 percent of this fee, while the company in question will put the other 50 percent into their already bulging bank account.

There are obviously a few benefits to be gained from using these (contracted out) fitting services. They save you having to spend time your own installation specialist, there are some guarantees included, and any issues occurring will be compensated for or resolved. Nevertheless, as a company like Magnet will likely be using local kitchen fitters from the Newport-on-Tay area, there is no reason why you can't book these services directly, and basically half the bill. Locally based Newport-on-Tay kitchen installers will still have their good reputations to uphold, and will usually be perfectly happy to resolve any issues, so you won't only save money, but you'll in addition avoid the requirement to wade through the notoriously "clunky" and sluggish complaints system of a massive national DIY chain!

When buying fitted kitchens from some of these large DIY companies, it pays to be bear in mind that several problems quite frequently crop up, and some are notorious for it. Amongst the most common mishaps are delivering incorrect stuff, having parts, fixtures and fittings missing from individual packs and not delivering everything you have ordered. In virtually all fitted kitchens from DIY companies, the units will arrive flat-packed, so they will need to be put together in-situ, it is important that everything is checked on delivery, since any missing items can result in big delays to the installation.

Thanks to all these problems, and others I won't mention at this point, some kitchen installers in Newport-on-Tay are not keen to work for such companies, and are not even keen to fit kitchens that have been supplied by them. Therefore, ask around first and get some feedback. In spite of all this, these kitchens will continue to be extremely popular, as they're good value for money and of decent quality (if all the components show up!), when installed properly they'll last for as long as any equivalent (chipboard or composite) kitchen.

While doing the dismantling of your old cabinets and other units, the kitchen installer could uncover spots which require additional work.

What About the Kitchen Sink?

As perhaps the most functional part of any kitchen in Newport-on-Tay, you may feel that the 'design' of your kitchen sink is largely irrelevant. Surely all that's required is an ordinary stainless steel sink for doing the dishes, correct? Wrong! In fact, sinks come in a whole host of sizes, materials and shapes, and your selection of sink could have large aesthetic and practical ramifications for your kitchen. But, what are the different types of kitchen sinks that are available, and how will they impact on the way in which your kitchen is used? Here's an outline of the kitchen sinks on the market right now:

Kitchen Sinks Newport-on-Tay

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

Materials: Stainless steel is the most popular sink material out there and it's good reputation is justifiable. Cost-effective, hard-wearing and easy to maintain, the sleek metallic effect fits seamlessly into virtually any kitchen. If, however, you are searching for something a touch different for your own kitchen in Newport-on-Tay, you might wish to consider granite, which is exceptionally resistant to scrapes and scuffs, and offers a modern look that's both understated and imposing.

If you can't stretch your budget to granite, though, you might be drawn to composite sinks, which are made from a mix of natural materials and fillers. Available at a marginally lower price, they offer some of granite's best qualities, making them an excellent choice. On the other hand, you could go for the classic tones of ceramic sinks, which combine a high-gloss finish with a brilliant white material to produce an impressive focal point in your kitchen.

Styles: Whilst one-bowl sinks are standard in most domestic kitchens in Newport-on-Tay, there's a lot to be said for some of the alternatives. Two-bowl sinks, for example, offer enough space for food preparation and washing-up at the same time, without the risk of dropping your carrots into soapy water. Nevertheless, they do take up a fair bit of space, which means they might not be suited to smaller kitchens in Newport-on-Tay where space is limited.

One-and-a-half-bowl sinks offer a decent compromise, providing you with an extra area that doesn't use too much surface space. There's still much to be said, though, for large one bowl sinks, particularly if you have a dishwasher. One large single sink enables you to soak bigger dishes and pans that won't fit in that appliance.

And there it is. An almost endless range of choices available, meaning that you are certain to find a sink that complements your home in Newport-on-Tay.

Kitchen Design Newport-on-Tay

With regards to actually planning and designing your kitchen and buying the units there are two or three main ways that you are able to accomplish this. First of all you can pay a visit to your local builders merchants or kitchen suppliers and have them plan your kitchen on computer programs using measurements that you have provided, or you can call in a kitchen fitter, who will have access to equivalent software, but will also be willing to measure up and plan the kitchen for you within a couple of days. You might find that your local kitchen installer can get a great deal through his regular supplier and obtain your new kitchen at a bargain basement price. Of course, kitchen fitters are the experts (sometimes more so than suppliers), and they will know exactly what goes where, and which kind of kitchen units will be most suitable for your space and specifications.

A perfect scenario is when you've got an area on your garden or driveway when a skip could be placed.
