Why to buy kitchens direct from the suppliers

Many home and garden stores sell fitted kitchens with work surfaces, units and appliances as part of the package. A full kitchen with no hassle of shopping around for the various components can seem like a great idea to save time and hassle. However as appealing as this may seem there are a number of reasons that cutting cost on time may mean compromising on the quality of a kitchen. For each individual component of a kitchen there are specialists, who know their individual fields inside out. These specialists have contacts in the industry and can usually advise on the best choices for individual projects as well as source the very best material for purpose.

Kitchen units can be custom built by specialists to fit a specific space, giving a unique and tailor made finish to the room. By using custom fittings over off the shelf cabinets, you can ensure a perfect fit that looks and feels superior. This need not cost as much as you might think and by getting a few quotes you may find this is better value for money than a full fitted kitchen. Appliances are also usually best sourced separately also to ensure you get the correct machine for your needs. These too can actually save money when sourced separately. There are always offers on domestic appliances and shopping around often means big discounts on the same machine.

One of the most important and expensive parts of a new kitchen are the work surfaces. There are many choices of material and in order to maximise the longevity it is important to choose the one that best suits purpose. The differences between the materials have a lot to do with the functionality as well as they styling required, and it is often best to consult an expert in the field for the best advice. Specialists in stone will have contacts in the industry that can ensure you get the best quality stone for your money. When buying from a stone dealer you can be sure that what you are buying is 100% stone. When buying from DIY and general home stores however you often get stone clad surfaces that are not as high quality. There is often not a huge amount of difference in the price you pay for pure stone from a specialist than the clad alternative offered by many big retailers, and the value for money is certainly in the favour of the solid slabs.

There is still an argument for buying a fitted kitchen as one, but this is purely a time saving one. For higher quality, the best advice and a perfect fit the advantages of going straight to the supplier are evident.
