Tips & Recommendations For When You Purchase Your Next Kitchen
1) Take your time, Buying a new Kitchen is probably going to be most people’s third biggest expense after buying a house or car. Don’t be rushed or pressured into going for the first plan and quote for your Kitchen. Take your time to properly go over every detail and never be worried about asking for the plan to be altered. If price is an issue don’t be scared off by your first quote and go elsewhere. At KBS we will always work with you and look at alternatives to bring the cost of your Kitchen down. For example, your first quote might be for a painted rigid Kitchen to reduce costs by several 100s of pounds you could go for a rigid non-painted kitchen or to reduce the price further you could go for a flat packed kitchen.
2) Don’t compromise your dream Kitchen by getting it badly installed. Ensure you find an experienced professional Kitchen fitter. Ask friends, family or speak to your local Independent Kitchen Showroom for recommendation’s. As a long-established Builders Merchants in Kington Herefordshire with a Showroom, we have fantastic relationships with many local fitters.
3) Don’t be fooled by Kitchen Sales from the big chains. If you’re looking for a new Kitchen, you are sure to of seen the major chains offering 50% off sales. How could you resist that? Sales like this just seem to be too good to be true. Of course, as the old saying goes, if something looks too good to be true it probably is, and that’s certainly the case with these types of sales. The truth is that the big chain stores mislead you by doubling the retail price of their units for the sale period so that they can then give you 50% off. At KBS we believe in fair prices all year round. So don’t be fooled by the big discounts the most important thing is the total price you pay for your Kitchen not how much you get off.
4) Look inside the cabinets and don’t be fooled by how a Kitchen looks from the outside. Good quality cabinets are generally 18mm thick, come with solid back panels, void spaces for pipe work/electrics and will come with branded hinges and drawer runners from leading European manufactures such as Grass and Kessebohmer. Many big chains will make big savings here meaning bigger profits for them by using budget 15mm cabinets often only available in just white with thin flimsy back panels along with budget hinges and drawer runners. So don’t be frighted to open up the units and have a good look and ask lots of questions which any experienced Kitchen designer will be more than happy to answer.
5) Like with the cabinets also take a close look at the doors and how they are made. There are many different types and styles of doors ranging from simple melamine faced chipboard doors, PVC foil wrapped MDF doors, Painted MDF doors, solid timber doors and painted solid timber doors. When getting a Kitchen quoted from different retailers remember to compare genuine like for like. It can be very easy to think you have been quoted for a painted timber or MDF door when in fact it is just a PVC foil wrapped MDF door and then getting a comparative quote from another retailer which is a genuine timber painted door which can be several hundreds of pounds more.
Mackintosh True Rigid Kitchens
Mackintosh Kitchens are proudly designed and manufactured in the UK. Mackintosh offer a range of traditional and modern kitchen designs. Mackintosh cabinets are truly rigid unlike many other kitchens sold as rigid which are just pre-assembled flat packed kitchens.
What do we mean by truly rigid? Truly rigid kitchen cabinets are made to order using precision glue and dowel construction creating a true rigid cabinet, with squarer, stronger units with no visible screws or fixings.
Mackintosh kitchens come with hinges, drawer boxes and pull outs from leading European manufactures Grass and Kessebohmer.
