How much are your kitchens?
As you can imagine, this isn’t a straightforward question to answer. Every kitchen we supply is different – from its design, size and layout, to the type of cabinets, worktops and appliances installed. And, because every kitchen is unique, it is priced up individually.
However, to give you some idea on costs, our kitchens, (including worktops, appliances, fitting and VAT) start from around £7k and go up to over £40k, with most of our kitchens falling into the £12k to £25k price bracket. What we supply is good quality. Our German kitchen furniture is well made and well priced. It comes from leading brands Nobilia and Nolte, and every kitchen is made to order. Our Shaker style furniture is also made to order and can be painted in almost any colour you like.
What things affect the cost of a new kitchen?
The price of a new kitchen (the furniture, appliances and worktops) is affected by lots of variables including:-
- The number of cabinets you have and whether they have any internal accessories such as pull out shelving, or cutlery trays.
- The type of cabinet. A glass fronted wall cabinet for example comes with a higher price tag than one with a standard door front.
- Drawers or cupboards? A standard cupboard has a lower price tag than a drawer unit.
- Which door front you choose. These fall into different price groups according to the style and material of the door front.
- Whether you opt for a handleless kitchen or one with handles. In general, a handleless kitchen carries a slight premium.
- Whether you want any lighting – eg along the plinths or under the cabinets.
- The appliances you want in your kitchen, along with the brand and model. Appliance costs can vary enormously. For example, a new Sub-Zero tall fridge costs several thousand pounds to buy, whilst a Hotpoint model falls into the hundreds. Although there are differences between the two, they are both fridges and will keep your food and drink chilled.
- What material you choose for your worktops. A laminate worktop for example will have a lower price per metre than a granite one.
On top of this, there is the installation cost to take into consideration, along with any additional work you may want done such as flooring, tiling, decorating and any structural work. We can do as much or as little of a kitchen project as you want, including supply only.
What can you do if my budget doesn’t match my kitchen wish list?
We know that it doesn’t always follow that a budget will stretch to everything on a wish list. We work closely with you on the design of your new kitchen and if costs need to be trimmed, we can review the design and come up with alternatives without changing the overall look of the kitchen.
Nolte, in particular, are very good at producing door fronts that look similar but fall into 2 different price groups. For example, this beautiful door (below left) in “Corten Steel” from Nolte’s Ferro range has real metal in it (the door fronts are magnetic). A similar look can be achieved by using Nolte’s “Copper Oxide” door front (below right). This isn’t magnetic but it does look stunning and it falls into a lower price band than the Corten Steel.
