If you do buy from B&Q>, carefully examine all parts for damage before signing for it, my daughter had to have three kitchen worktops before receiving one that was undamaged. Robbie

I've fitted two IKEA kitchens and found them very good. Everything lined up perfectly and although all the doors do have adjusters to make the doors line up, I've never needed to touch any of them. Not had any problems with damaged stock either, but they don't let the public in to their stock area. One thing to be aware of -- there's no gap behind IKEA cupboards. That's not a problem if you're rerunning services -- just make sure they are run no higher than 16cm, but it might be if you aren't redoing services too.
I helped a friend finish off a B&Q kitchen, and that didn't seem to be as accurately made and doors did need adjustment, etc. That could have been a reflection on his assembly skills although there was nothing obviously wrong with the way he put the things together. I gave up trying to buy a sink from B&Q, as they were all damaged (bent/dented), and that's where IKEA scored well.
I bought worktops from Wickes, and had to lift off about 5 of them before I found one which wasn't damaged. In this case, damage was done by driving the forklift into the pile, and had wrecked the front edge of nearly every one they had.

I also recommend Ikea, you can use pva glue on all joints when assembling cabinets - makes for even stronger job :-))

I have both B&Q and Ikea kitchens, and they are masses better than the likes of MFI. I find the worktops expensive, so make my own, and buy handles and the like from an online supplier. They must make their money on the extras as the main uinits & doors are good value
