We would always recommend getting a professional kitchen fitter to fit your kitchen, there are hundreds of talented good quality kitchen fitters up and down the country. There is a big difference between a kitchen fitter who fits kitchens every week of the year and a joiner who does 3 or 4 a year, and an even bigger difference between a professional kitchen fitter and a builder, so imagine the difference between a professional kitchen fitter who specialises in kitchen installations and an office worker having a go at fitting his own kitchen.
A professional kitchen fitter will have all the correct tools to do the job properly. Generally, kitchen fitters are top of their game and perfectionists with their work, they will have lots of little tricks of the trade they will have picked up over the years as well. We would always try to get a professional kitchen fitter to install your kitchen. Be prepared to wait for them though as most good kitchen fitters will be fully booked up for 5-6 weeks minimum.
We do offer a fitting service but we will only do kitchen installations within a 60-mile radius of Ripon. The areas we will install your kitchen are as follows; Ripon, Harrogate, York, Leeds, Wetherby, Ilkley, Yeadon, Otley, Skipton, Bedale, Catterick, Northallerton, Darlington and all the areas in-between. We have 8 teams of professional kitchen fitters that subcontract to us on a regular basis.
Both directors came from a fitting background, so they do know the job pretty well. Plus, all the fitters who work for us also know that we know what we are talking about, so they always work to a fantastically high standard.
If we are doing your kitchen installation we will only supply your kitchen as rigid kitchen cabinets, not flat-packed.
The difference between an expensive looking kitchen and a cheap looking kitchen is the quality of the fitting of the kitchen itself. It is all down to the attention to detail the finishing of it and the final few touches that make all the difference. So, in my opinion, we would always say get a professional to install your new kitchen, but that is obviously completely your choice.
