How can I find a reliable kitchen fitter?

Buying a new kitchen can be both a stressful and an enjoyable process. But however hard you work on choosing the kitchen range and getting the design right, the end result can be ruined by a poor fit. So how do you go about finding a fitter who will ensure your finished kitchen looks amazing?

Here are our top 5 tips to finding a fitter:

1. Ask for personal recommendations – contact family, friends, colleagues, friends-of-friends, anyone you can think of. Use social media to reach a wide range of people.

2. Check out a range of sources – look out for local fitters advertising in community magazines and leaflets.  Find out about local networking groups.  Go online and look for kitchen forums where you can advertise and have a look at the Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installers – www.ikbbi.org.uk.

3. Check out references – if you haven’t had a personal recommendation (and even if you have) ask to see pictures of previous projects and speak to a couple of previous customers. If the fitter can’t or won’t give you access to someone who can vouch for the quality of their work think twice about using them.

4. Ask the right questions – when you find a potential fitter meet with them face-to-face and find out about their availability, experience, area they cover, working arrangements and project costs.

5. Do your homework – be aware of what fitting a new kitchen involves.  For example, it will almost certainly involve plumbing, gas and electric work, and if your fitter is not qualified to do this you will need to employer others who are.
