Kitchen Fitting Question

Extending kitchen and moving washing machine/oven


We'd like to remodel our kitchen slightly by extending the kitchen, currently in a long line, into the room to make an L-shape kitchen. This would involve moving an integrated electric oven a couple of feet, and the same for the washing machine. I'm totally clueless about DIY - is this a big job? Would moving the oven and washing machine make this complicated? And around how much should I expect to pay for the work?

Thanks for your help!

This is a relatively easy job, just ensure that the electrician who carries out your work is part p registered and provides you with a compliance certificate upon completion as this is essential to carry out any electrical works to a kitchen under the Building Regulations.
Without seeing the extent of the work, it is difficult to cost.

Hope that helps a little.

As above says, get a tradesman round to take a look at the work required that way he will be able to provide a more accurate quote.
I never quote for work unless I have seen the job. It's not a big job
