Kitchen Fitting

How long does it take to design and fit a new kitchen?

Moved into the new house and need to remodel the kitchen, nothing too fancy - just decent fittings (the kitchen is about 15 square metres) - no island or anything like that. Will need to fit a work-top, two sinks; cupboards, fridge, dishwasher and new washing machine.

How much time do I need to allow from initial kitchen choice (will need help with that) to full kitchen install?

There is a lot to consider, kitchens and the installation add up to a considerable amount of money, you need to make a choice of kitchen door (shaker, handless, gloss, Matt), style/colour of worktop, taps,sink etc.
Then there’s the tiling to consider or the panelling between the units, colour for walls and type of flooring, LVT, laminate, vinyl etc, once you’ve made all your choices a site survey will be necessary to talk you through the process of installation followed by a detailed quote to carry out the necessary work prior to installation of the kitchen, electrical,plastering, plumbing, gas etc
A full refurb from start to finish inclusive of all of the above and decorated to finish will take approximately 10 days.

It takes a week or so to design and agree all options 3 weeks to manufacture and a few days to fit

Impossible to put an accurate time scale without knowing the full extent of the refurbishment, liaise with your chosen kitchen designers and installer who have seen the job for an actual time scale, people giving you a timescale based on no real information are potentially setting you and your kitchen installer at odds before the job even starts.

A great kitchen isn't necessary the most expensive. It's about good design that includes lighting, floor and wall finishing. Tightly controlled, planned and managed first fix electrics, plumbing and plastering if required. Installation should be done with pride and care. Whatever your budget, you should consider all these factors. Ensure the process from start to finish is not starved of time. Money will be saved by getting it right - first time.
