Cost of a New Kitchen

If you looking into the cost of a new kitchen, here is a selection of real figures from our kitchen renovations over the past 14 years.

Whilst a kitchen showroom might tell you the price for the units, appliances and possibly the worktop, it is important for you to know the full cost; that means the lighting, electrics, heating, flooring, finishes and any building work.

here we offer guidance on the cost of a new kitchen using examples from our own projects over the past 12 years

Some of the prices below show the total project cost, of which the kitchen formed a part. Others show just the cost of the kitchen items.

The prices are exclusive of VAT, so you will need to add this at the prevailing rate. Project management is also excluded. Older figures have been uplifted to approximate 2016 figures assuming an average inflation rate of 3.5% per year.
