Buying a kitchen today is not easy with so many ranges, styles and companies to choose from. Below we have outlined a brief buying guide to help you look at some of the more glaring points to consider when purchasing a new fitted kitchen.
- See what your buying
- Check out the services offered
- Finance & Deposit
- Never pay in full
- Don’t sign until you’re sure
1. See what you’re buying
A fitted kitchen can cost as much as an expensive holiday or new car, because of the cost that can be involved make sure you see what you buying, look at the descriptions and brochures, and if possible visit a show room.
KitchensForSale.com operates a strict viewing policy for clients; we don’t just turn up with fittings and fixtures. We provide full colour brochures and have access to online showrooms which allow you to view your design as a finished product.
2. Check out the kitchen services offered
One of the most important questions to ask any designer is the level of skill they hold not just in kitchen fitting but also structural alterations. When installing your new kitchen you might find structural work that needs doing to the floor for instance, make sure your fitters can cater for these unforeseen problems so you’re not left to have to get in other builders in.
3. Finance & Deposit
When it comes to paying for your design most kitchen designers can offer finance options to help with the cost. Ensure you can afford the payments and pay attention to the interest charged, although most finance options available are good deals; be careful you’re not spending more than you have to. When it comes to the deposit of your new kitchen try not to pay more than a 25%.
4. Never pay in full
Unless absolutely confident and sure of the company you are dealing with never pay the full amount up front, wait till you have received the goods and service prior to settling up.
5. Don’t sign until you’re sure
Sign on the dotted line only when you are absolutely sure you have selected the right design, you are happy with the company you are dealing with.
