Some people will tell you that buying a new kitchen is a complicated and time-consuming task. Of course, it can be, but the truth is that it certainly needn’t be.

So, where does buying a new kitchen online fit into the equation? How does buying online compare with your other options? What are the advantages of buying online? What are the disadvantages, if there are any? And is it safe to buy your new kitchen online?
There are lots of questions. Fortunately, we have all the answers right here for you!
New kitchen online: To buy or not to buy
Generally speaking, you have three main options when it comes to buying a new kitchen. You can buy from one of the major DIY outlets, or buy from a kitchen showroom (this usually involves a salesman visiting your house). Last but not least, you can buy a new kitchen online.
Buying a kitchen at the big DIY outlets can be a time-consuming business and can sometimes feel like a bit of an ordeal. Similarly, more and more people have a genuine mistrust of anything that involves salesmen. Their reputation might be a little unfair, but the stereotype of the pushy salesman that won’t leave your house until he’s got a sale remains. The other disadvantage of either of these first two options is that you are likely to have to wait, on average, 5-6 weeks for your kitchen to be delivered. This is understandable if you having bespoke units custom made. However, you can often wait several weeks even for off-the-shelf items.
Buying online: Saving the best til last?
Which leaves us with the final of your three options – to buy your new kitchen online.
Even before the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdowns forced the issue, we have moving much of our shopping online in recent years. Tales of woe from the High Street have rarely been out of the news, with big retailers dropping like flies. Of course, many people still like the experience of physically shopping in bricks and mortar buildings. Increasingly, more and people are being converted to the convenience of online retail. There’s something slightly decadent about the prospect of ordering your weekly grocery shop in your pyjamas. There’s something gratifying about updating your wardrobe from the comfort of your sofa.
However, buying a new kitchen online isn’t probably the first thing that springs to mind when you think of online shopping – but it’s definitely a real thing…
And it’s remarkably easy too!
