Kitchen Fitters Thornaby North Yorkshire (TS17): It's perfectly possible that, like for many other people in Thornaby, your favourite room in the house is the kitchen. After all, it is the room where you and your family most often gather together and interact. It is crucial that the kitchen is a place where everyone can feel relaxed, because through the years a great many fabulous memories are going to be experienced there. You can actually reinvent your day-to-day family life by opting to change your kitchen into a room that everyone enjoys and wants to hang out in, while at the same time providing both friends and loved ones with a vibrant meeting place.
Putting in a new kitchen is not one of those tasks you will have to carry out all that frequently, so when the moment comes to exchange your weary old kitchen you may want to employ the services of a professional Thornaby kitchen fitter to make certain your new kitchen units look good and are put in properly.
When buying a new kitchen from a big DIY chain like B&Q, Homebase or Wickes, it is normally possible to get a price for installation directly from them. There may be a sudden intake of breath when you're presented with a price for this service, as it will likely be more than twice as much as you were expecting to pay. There's a logical reason for this, and that's because the actual fitters will receive 50% of this fee, while the company in question will bung the other half into their already overflowing coffers.
There are naturally some advantages to using these (sub-contracted) fitting services. They save you having to spend time your own fitter, there are specified guarantees provided, and any problems occurring should be compensated for or resolved. Nevertheless, because local kitchen fitters from the Thornaby area will most likely be used by someone like B&Q, there's no rationale why you can't save yourself half of the money and book those services directly. Local Thornaby kitchen installers will still have their reputations to maintain, and will usually be perfectly happy to remedy any problems, so not only can you save money, but additionally avoid the need to wade through the excruciatingly snail-paced and "clunky" complaints procedure of a massive national DIY chain!
It also pays to bear in mind that when buying kitchens from some of these big DIY chains, problems quite commonly occur. Amongst the most common complaints are for not delivering everything you have ordered, having fixtures, parts and fittings missing from individual cartons and delivering incorrect packages. It is quite normal for fitted kitchens to come in flat-pack cartons, especially when purchased from DIY stores, and to save costly and inconvenient hold-ups to the installation process, you'll want to meticulously check that everything is there on delivery, and that all the boxes are present and containing the appropriate components.
It's been quite widely reported that because of the concerns with these kitchens, a lot of kitchen installers in Thornaby don't even like to work for these chains. In which case have a kitchen fitter lined up before you order. While acknowledging that, some of the kitchens from these companies are of acceptable quality and incredibly good value, and if they are fitted professionally should last for a fair few years.
If you're aware of friends and family who have used the services of a local Thornaby kitchen fitter in the past, they might be able to provide recommendations. Word of mouth is usually considered to be much better than commercial advertising and reviews, since it gives a better idea of quality, and comes straight from the mouth of someone who you trust. When you've prepared a list of prospective tradesmen you can then ask them to give you a quote - you'll want at least three or four job quotes.
A free on-site survey will usually be provided by most kitchen fitters in Thornaby, during which they will precisely measure the available space, go over cabinet designs, room layouts, colour schemes and materials. They will then draw up a detailed plan of your kitchen, based on what has been discussed. From this diligently designed plan, they will be in a position to supply you with you an itemised price quote, based on your kitchen choices. You could of course jot down a rough plan of your own, if you are capable of doing the measurements on your own, then head to to Magnet or B&Q, where their purpose built software program will work out the perfect configuration and tell you where all the cabinets will fit neatly.
Skilled kitchen fitters as a rule have years of joinery know-how and experience to draw on and may have completed some kind of an apprenticeship scheme with their employers. Skilled in using both power and hand tools, they are able to take apart your old kitchen in Thornaby and replace it with your new units swiftly, efficiently and professionally.
When your old kitchen cupboards are being taken down there's a pretty decent chance that some additional work will come to light which was not seen in the design and planning phase. Owing to the time that has elapsed since your existing kitchen was installed the floors and walls behind the cabinets will have been mostly neglected and forgotten. There are almost certain to be problems which need to be corrected and areas that require particular attention if your new kitchen is going to last for as long as you'd like it to.
If your brand new kitchen design has a gas cooker included you'll need to ensure that either your kitchen installer is Gas Safe registered or can call in someone who is, for this work. When a new fitted kitchen is being put in it is also pretty common to change all the flooring, since in most cases the old flooring will no longer be suitable. This will be a job that a seasoned kitchen installer in Thornaby can undertake without any problem and should be able to work with whatever materials you prefer; ceramic tiles, natural stone, engineered wood, timber, vinyl or laminate.
Some electrics will be necessary for virtually all new kitchen installation jobs in Thornaby. You may be fortunate and find a kitchen fitter who's Part-P certified, while others will "have a go" at basic electrics, but in most instances you will need a qualified electrician.
In most cases, kitchen fitters or kitchen installation companies in Thornaby will have an electrician who works with them, when electrical work is needed, seeing that kitchen fitters have typically trained as carpenters & joiners, and will simply have dabbled in basic plumbing and electrics to widen their capabilities.
You should ask about the electrical side of things when the on-site survey and quotation is being prepared, since "sparkys" don't come cheap and you will need to allocate extra cash for the electrics.
You may need a fair amount of electrical work doing, dependent on the design and layout of your new kitchen and this is now covered by part P of the building regulations, and is required to be done by an ELECSA or NICEIC electrician. Things such as heating, extra plug sockets, isolation switches, lighting and light switches, may be the type of electrical installations that you'll need.
By hiring a properly trained professional kitchen fitter in Thornaby you will be certain to receive all the appropriate help and advice with regards to how to make the best use of the available space, and the different ways to rework the look of your weary old kitchen by making use of the latest kitchen innovations and industry developments. Even if your existing kitchen is outdated and drab a talented installer will make certain that you finish up with a space-saving, ultra modern kitchen that is sure to make your neighbours and friends jealous. They'll most likely have trouble believing that it is the same room you began with.

Kitchen Disposal Thornaby
It is advisable to ask whether the disposing of the old kitchen cabinets is going to be included in the quote when you have the initial consultation. As you'll possibly be aware, most council waste tips nowadays are very strict on the type and quantity of waste products that can be tipped in one visit, and could even charge a fee for doing it. Your kitchen fitter needs to be able to take away your old units and dump them according to laws and regulations so you don't need to worry or stress about it.

Floor Levelling Thornaby
With some new kitchen installations it could be necessary to get the floor level before fitting any cabinets, particularly if any walls have been knocked down to enlarge the available area (broom cupboard or larder for example). If you're fitting underfloor heating (either water or electric), a bit of additional work on your kitchen floor will likely also be needed. If the need for this is clear from the get-go, the price will be included in your quotation. Your kitchen fitter may carry out the task himself or else call in a screeding specialist to spread a layer of floor levelling compound.
Hinge Adjustments to Cabinet Doors
Doors getting loose or becoming misaligned is an extremely common issue with existing kitchens in Thornaby. It does not matter who installed the kitchen in the first place, or how expertly it was done, with frequent use, the hinges will get sloppy, move about, or even become detached altogether. It is always a wise idea to figure out how to adjust these door hinges for yourself, as it will save you having to bring in a handyman or kitchen specialist to do this for you. If you choose to start playing around with a screwdriver without knowing what you're up to, it will seem an impossible task, but when you learn the right process and learn which of the screws to rotate and which way, it can actually be quite easy. As soon as all the doors have been correctly adjusted, it can make an enormous difference to the look of your kitchen. You will be able to get perfect spacings on your doors and make certain that all of the unit doors close perfectly and don't bang into and damaging the neighbouring doors, once you have the hang of it. We've provided a YouTube video to the right, which plainly shows the adjustment procedure with pictures rather than in words. So, take a look at the video and learn how to adjust and fine-tune your own kitchen cabinet hinges.
