Kitchen Fitters Stonehaven Scotland (AB39): For most families in Stonehaven the most natural room in which they can gather and interact with one another is the kitchen. As, as time goes by, many glorious memories will be made there, it's vital that the kitchen is a space where every member of the family can feel relaxed, as well as looking good and being functional. Although, naturally it will depend on how much space is available, updating your kitchen into a space that everyone loves and wants to be in could improve your day-to-day life.
In order to wind up with the kitchen you've always dreamed about, and also one that is appealing to the rest of your family, make certain to use an experienced and reliable kitchen fitter in Stonehaven to carry out the project.
If, like a lot of homeowners in Stonehaven, you are planning to purchase your fitted kitchen from a big chain such as Wickes, B&Q or Homebase, you'll discover that they offer a kitchen installation service as well. This is naturally an extra cost which is added to the price of the kitchen. This can often come as something of a surprise (particularly if you'd already got a price in your head), as there's a substantial mark-up on this service, and it is likely to be double what you were envisioning. The fitters will only receive about half of this fee and the remainder will be added to the profits of the company in question.
Now, these contracted out installation services do have a few benefits, but not sufficient to explain such a mark-up. They are massive companies, so you'll probably be compensated if there are any problems, and the installation does come with certain guarantees. Nonetheless, you can reduce your installation bill by fifty per cent by arranging such services yourself, and there is a fair chance that you may even finish up using the exact same installation service because a concern like Magnet frequently use local fitters from around Stonehaven anyway. Moreover, in the event that any issues arise during or after the installation, any respectable Stonehaven kitchen fitter will provide some sort of after care service, and they are likely to be much more easily approachable than going through the alarmingly snail-paced and "clunky" complaints system of a huge national organisation.
It also pays to bear in mind that when buying fitted kitchens from some of these big companies, problems quite commonly occur. They are renowned for having fittings, fixtures and parts missing from individual cartons, delivering the wrong packages and not supplying everything you've ordered. Virtually all DIY store kitchens arrive in flat pack format, so they'll need to be assembled in-situ. You will want to check all the packages on delivery (no easy feat), and rigorously follow up on any missing items, given that the installation process can be held up for weeks when goods are missing, and that can be inconvenient and costly.
Due to all of these issues, and others I won't mention at this point, lots of kitchen fitters in Stonehaven don't like to work for such chains, and are not even that happy about installing kitchens supplied by them. Therefore, before progressing too far ask around and get some feedback on these kitchens. Having said that, some of the fitted kitchens from these suppliers are of reasonable quality and very good value, and if installed properly will last for a fair few years.
A recommendation from friends and family is always a great way of finding a suitable tradesman, so that should be your first port of call when searching for a kitchen fitter. Word of mouth normally tells if a task was well done, and will come from a person who you trust to be honest and truthful. When you've prepared a list of possible contractors you can then ask them to price up the job - you'll need at least 3 different job quotes.
A free on-site survey will usually be provided by most kitchen fitters in Stonehaven, during the course of which they'll precisely measure the available space, go over layouts, colour schemes, materials and cabinet designs. They will then prepare a plan of your new kitchen, in keeping with what has been discussed. From this carefully prepared plan, they'll be able to supply you with you an itemised price quote, according to your kitchen choices. If you're confident about measuring the kitchen by yourself, you can sketch out your own design and take it into the nearest Wickes or B&Q, where they'll work everything out on a software program, if you wish to go down that route.
With plenty of joinery experience and expertise to help them, most professional kitchen installers in Stonehaven will have done some sort of apprenticeship scheme with their employer, to give them the required skills for this work. Skillful in in the use of both hand and power tools, they will be able to remove your existing kitchen in Stonehaven and install your new layout professionally, quickly and correctly.
When your old kitchen cupboards are being taken down there is a very good likelihood that some supplemental work will come to light that was not found during the design and planning stage. Forgotten floors and walls under and behind the kitchen cabinets will have been covered up for a number of years because of the time that's elapsed since they were first installed. Some of these trouble spots could be damaged and will have to be repaired for your new kitchen to fit snugly in position, and your kitchen installer will have to deal with this if the work is going to move forward effectively.
If gas appliances or a gas oven need to be installed in your new fitted kitchen in Stonehaven you will need to ensure that a Gas Safe engineer undertakes this element of the work for you. Sometimes, but very rarely, a kitchen fitter will be Gas Safe registered - if not he or she will know somebody who is. It is quite likely that you'll also be upgrading the flooring when you get your new kitchen put in. This should be a project which a seasoned kitchen installer in Stonehaven can take on very easily and should also be able to work with whatever materials you are wanting; vinyl, laminated, solid wood, tiles, engineered wood or natural stone.
It is usually advisable to use an experienced electrician for all your electrical tasks in a new kitchen, and it's very rare if some form of electrical work isn't necessary, unless you're just replacing like-for-like cupboards. Occasionally you'll come across a kitchen fitter in Stonehaven who is Part-P qualified, more often still they will "have a go" at basic electrical work, which should definitely set the alarm bells ringing.
In most cases, kitchen fitters or kitchen installation companies in Stonehaven will have an electrician who works with them, when electrical work is required, seeing as kitchen fitters have usually trained as carpenters and joiners, and will have only dabbled in plumbing and electrics to broaden their capabilities.
You will need to ask potential kitchen fitters about the electrical side of things at the beginning, preferably when you're getting quotes and selecting the ideal installer. Extra money will probably be needed for the electrical work, if this is not itemised in the estimate, and one thing is definite - "sparkys" don't come cheap, so count on a pretty big bill.
Electrical work in kitchens is now covered by part P of the building regs, and dependant upon the layout and design of your new kitchen you may need a heck of a lot of electrical work doing. Necessary electrical tasks could include such things as light fittings, extra sockets, light switches, isolation switches and underfloor heating.
