Thinking of Fitting a New Kitchen?

With the property market in such an unpredictable state at the moment more and more people seem to be applying the mantra - don't move, improve. If this phrase applies to you then I'm sure that you have cast an eye over that much used room - the kitchen - and thought, but where do I start? The process of choosing who to work with when updating or replacing your kitchen can seem a daunting one, but if you keep the principle that, 'quality will out' in mind, you shouldn't go far wrong.
Good advice is of course what's required and when looking for a new or improved kitchen then expertise will be invaluable to you and will, in the long term, save you time and money. If the thought of trawling round the myriad warehouse type showrooms, trying to wade through the overwhelming multitude of information about finance deals, free gimmicks and sales on sales fills you with gloom and trepidation then don't despair. You are not alone! Listen to your instincts and look for an independent kitchen company with a solid reputation and proven experience that can advise you impartially, without pressure. An independent supplier of kitchens should be able to offer unbiased advice on the best way to approach your project. They should be able to show you a range of options from various suppliers and talk with authority on the pros and cons for each as far as your particular project is concerned.
There is no doubt that improving, updating or even replacing your kitchen, if done in the correct way should add value to your property and provide a return on your investment. But how do you know whether to update, whether to completely replace or whether to opt for something between the two. Independent kitchen suppliers should be able to help you with all the decisions necessary - from worktops to appliances, from style of doors to selection of tiles. A professional who can demonstrate experience and expertise in all areas involved should be able to help you project manage especially when different trades such as electricians and gas fitters are involved. You should be offered guidance not only in kitchen planning and layout but also in the most appropriate options for your situation. Do you actually need a whole new kitchen or would replacement doors and work surfaces be sufficient? If it's all going to be new, how will it fit - can you see a design and most importantly a detailed quotation?
Whatever your requirements and budget you are making an investment and should seek advice that recognises the importance of the decisions you make. An independent kitchen supplier can offer guidance on the different types of kitchens available and how the quality varies. A quality kitchen will pay for itself over and over again given time, the investment in good, professional, impartial advice is as important as the investment in quality manufactured carcasses, hand painted cupboards, bespoke worksurfaces, high specification appliances etc etc.
In short it is the whole project that is important, don't be tempted to skip on any aspect - consult an experienced professional and you will have the additional security that they should be members of appropriate Trade Associations and be able to offer guarantees and references.
