I don't know what area you are in.......but I can design, supply and fit your kitchen for you! My kitchens are of better quality than B&Q,, Howdens, Moben and Magnet!

I have over 25years experience in suppling and fitting kitchens. There are plenty of manufactures to choose from depending on your budjet.
Regarding the labour, make sure you recieve electrical and gas certificates.
Also view their work or contact previous customers. Making sure your fitted kitchen is installed by an experianced fitter.
Hope you found this useful.

Like the previous reply, I would recommend finding a local kitchen specialist whose previous clients would be happy to recommend them. I have used computer aided design software since 1988, and supplied quality kitchens at trade prices since 1984. The majority of my work comes from word of mouth recommendations, and my showroom is my previous customers homes. I am Gas Safe registered, my electrician is NICEIC registered, and I have access to a plasterer, decorator and tiler, who I can recommend and trust to do a good job. The biggest cause of distress in kitchen fitting, I have found, is using too many different contractors who don't seem to co-ordinate their timing. I have been called in to complete kitchen installations that had been ongoing for over a year.

I supply kitchens and install them and have never been beaten on cost by any of the larger companies like B&Q and the likes. I would be interested to know how many units you were looking for and if the 6m in length is part of the whole kitchen or is it a kitchen dinner, but just quoted a kitchen dinner were the there was 2 runs one on window wall and one with breakfast bar on to dining area and a custom larder unit for £3900 but granted this was without F/F and cooker

I agree with the other guys but for a 6 x 3 m kitchen your going to struggle on 4k.

If you want good units that will last you need to check out the thickness of the backs, Howdens and b&Q are rubbish they are so thin and are tacked on over time they could push out and look unsightly. Benchmarx, Magnet use Gower units (16mm thick backs) and give you a good gurantee, you need to check what the gurantee for the doors is as these are shorter than the units.

As for labour you could go into any Benchmarx etc. and ask for recomendations, insist on seeing some of there work and a copy of their public liability first, if you don't see both don't use them. (Like these other tradesmen that have answered I fit kitchens although most of mine are hand made in my workshop and wont come close to your budget) If they do a good job their customers will only be to pleased to show it off and prase the company.

Lastly, any of the people that have spent the time in answering this questing would be a good bet, they have proved to be helpful to you.

Good luck with your kitchen.
