I'm thinking of installing a band new kitchen.
Can anyone tell me who offers the best prices for base & wall units. (Either
online or otherwise)
I intend doing all of the installation myself.
I did this by using a simple spreadsheet - types of unit across the top,
suppliers down the side. Enter the prices from your selected suppliers and
see who is the best value. I found that many places have one or two units
pow priced to grab your attention, but add on pelments etc and the prices
Having fitted a few kitchens myself found that IKEA was one of the cheapest
I found, their website has a good program that you can design your kitchen
and it gives u a list of all the items you need. Worth a look esp. as they
are sooooo easy to install.
Howdens are the cheapest, but not the best, that said, they do come already
assembled (the carcasses) and shrink wrapped, their website is crap (there's
nothing there but a logo) but there's a list of outlets here, there's quite
a few in Scotland:
We did our kitchen a couple of years ago. After costing it up we decided the
one we wanted was in MFI and by miracle timing they had a big sale and we
got them for much less than we'd expected.
A local trader showed us the Howden brochure and although MFI used to use
Howden (they may still), they looked a bit plain. I thought I read somewhere
that MFI had sold Howden and that you could now buy direct from them.
My biggest regret was buying the cheapest cooker hood which looks a bit
clunky - although it works well.
Needless to say I fitted it all myself but used a local electrician for the
MFI _always_ have a sale. The sale prices are the real prices. Never
buy at more than "50% off" there. On second thoughts never buy from
MFI at all - they are usually incapable of fulfilling an order
