Putting in a new kitchen can be pretty costly – as a rule, experts say to spend between 10 and 20% of the value of the property. Sound scary? Well, if you shop smart you can get a quality kitchen at a fraction of the price.
When you want an up market look without the cost, try an auction showroom. As well as hundreds of kitchens at knockdown prices, they sell a wide variety of bench tops and white goods. You can get an entire kitchen for a 1/3rd of the normal price.
Then there’s the DIY option and that means flatpack. You can buy standard size cabinets and make them fit into your space.
Or for a top end look, get a custom made flatpack. These are made to measure and will take about 6 weeks for delivery. They are the same designs and finishes as your high street supplier, with high quality bench tops and doors, giving you a luxury kitchen without breaking the bank.
Another way to save you money is not to change the layout of the kitchen. That way your saving money on labour costs for plumbing and electrics and also you won’t need a new floor.
And to make sure your new kitchen has the wow factor, spend some of the money you’ve saved on an upmarket splashback, great quality taps and lighting.
