Replacing Your Kitchen Cabinet Doors vs a Full Kitchen Refit

The kitchen is the heart of our home.

According to a recent study by “The Sun”, the average adult in the UK spends an hour each day cooking, but the kitchen is so much more than a functional cooking space, it’s where we spend much of our time with family and friends, relaxing over a meal and maybe a glass or two of wine.

For many who are fed up looking at their tired, old kitchen, getting a new look kitchen is their home improvement dream. However, it remains a pipe-dream for a great many people who believe the cost to be beyond their budget.

Renovating a kitchen can require a big budget. Householdquotes.co.uk estimates that in 2020 the average price of a new kitchen installation in the UK costs around £8000 and that doesn’t include appliances or the cost of ripping out and disposing of the old kitchen, plastering, tiling, painting etc.

So, what’s the alternative?

It is now possible to have your dream kitchen at a fraction of the cost of a full kitchen refit... simply by replacing your old doors and drawer fronts. There is no point in throwing away perfectly good kitchen cupboards and cabinets. Where it makes sense, the visible frames and end panels are covered with matching materials to fit the theme of your new kitchen doors and drawers. A large range of matching kitchen accessories is also readily available including plinths, cornice, end panels and handles.

You can have your kitchen doors and drawer fronts made to measure. Doors can be pre-drilled for hinges should you wish. It’s never been simpler to create a stunning new kitchen at an affordable price!
