How to Find a Kitchen Fitter

Finding a kitchen fitter

Installing new units is a great way to revitalise your kitchen and add value to your property. To make sure they are fitted correctly, you will need a top quality local kitchen fitter: not only will they be able to install your new units quickly and efficiently, but they will also be used to dealing with common problems that arise. If you want to make sure your kitchen units are installed perfectly, get a kitchen fitter in for the job!

The Plentific website is dedicated to helping you find the best local tradesmen for your job. As one of the fastest growing home improvement service marketplaces around, Plentific can quickly (and freely) generate a bespoke list of kitchen fitters in your local area that offer the skills you need for your project. By hiring a ‘verified’ Pro, you can also gain protection from the Plentific Guarantee, an industry-unique insurance policy that helps to ensure that customers have their projects completed to a high standard.

What does a kitchen fitter do?

A kitchen fitter is a tradesman that can make sure your new kitchen units are correctly sized and fitted. They will be able to create and follow technical drawings relating to the structure of your new kitchen and will be able to overcome potential problems, such as inconveniently placed pipes or cables. Kitchen fitters will also have a good enough knowledge of building regulations to advise you if you ever require planning permission or an additional specialist.
Another useful service that kitchen fitters can provide is ripping out and disposing of your old units for you. While they should be happy to do this, you may well be able to save money on your quote by getting rid of the old units yourself, so be sure to ask!

What do you need to think about when finding a kitchen fitter?

It is important to check the experience and qualifications of your local kitchen fitter candidates. Your tradesman may have worked on similar kitchens in the past, or they may specialise in the type of designs or fittings you are looking for. They should also have pictures of finished jobs for you to inspect, along with details for their previous clientele.
Ensure that you take the time to ask your potential hires for proof of their qualifications. Your local kitchen fitter may have undertaken an apprenticeship or industry course, or may be part of a national tradesmen’s organisation, such as the British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI).

Certain tradesmen may be willing to offer a free home assessment for their prospective clients, so take advantage of this if you can. An assessment will also highlight any additional tasks that need to be done. Speaking of additional tasks, ensure that you ask for a price breakdown when your potential hire gives you a quote: you may spot a job that you can do yourself in order to save money!

When choosing a kitchen fitter you should make sure they are adequately covered for accidental damage and liabilities. After investing in a new kitchen, you do not want to have to pay to cover anything broken by an unprotected kitchen fitter. You should also make sure that they have a policy in place for if you are unsatisfied with their finished work. For certain appliances, such as gas cookers, the kitchen fitter fitting it may also offer a warranty for repairs.

How much does a kitchen fitter cost?

Your quotes will depend on the size of the kitchen and how simple it will be to fit. Certain designs may need someone to tile or remove tiles from your wall, replace worktops or fit gas appliances. Before choosing your tradesman, you can ask to get a free assessment of your kitchen, which can let you know how much work is necessary on top of the fitting or installation. You may be able to find certain jobs that you can do yourself to save money.
Remember when discussing price that you should never hire a tradesman based on a verbal estimate. Ask them to give you your quote in writing: if you cannot or are simply unwilling to, it may be that they are planning to do a poor job and then simply leave with the money.

I have a solid wood, Ikea-type counter top in the kitchen at my property in N16. It has degraded and needs replacement. It has an under-fixed steel sink, the mixer tap is clamped through a separate adjacent recess. There is also a gas hob inset to the worktop, with integrated electric oven beneath. I would like to retain all these. Pipework rises to a boiler through a separate plate at one end and the rest of the worktop is set over units (that I think are basically sound) - and a washing machine. I think it is a like for like worktop replacement. Total length is 3.2 m approx. Can you inspect and quote for this next Thursday or Friday (14/15th Jan)? (PS: You may have a separate request concerning bathroom floor tiles at the same property)

We have a limited budget for various projects within our new home and are calculating whether what we can do in terms of a new kitchen. The current kitchen and second reception room will be turned into one room (see floor plan) and we aim to create a kitchen-diner and living area, so being economical and intelligent with design is important. We imagine that the left-hand wall (looking at the plans with the front door at the bottom) is likely to accommodate most of the kitchen equipment, with a possible island opposite it, so that most of the right-hand side of the room remains free. However, we welcome better solutions! We have attached an example of the style of kitchen that we like, as well as the reception room that the existing kitchen will be combined with.

What a fantastic pair of guys! Very rare to find tradesmen with such professional in their conduct as well as doing everything with the greatest of care, absolute attention to detail and the total satisfaction of their client being paramount to them. They would not do anything without my agreement and always came up with options. I've read the other reviews on here which said they'd gone the extra mile and have to say they really do go all out to do what it takes to do the job right, ensure all works perfectly as it should and achieve the best finish. They do not cut corners or use low grade cheap materials. I'm a difficult person to please, but they found the way to make everything work in my tiny 1.7m x 1.8m bathroom and it looks absolutely gorgeous, far exceeding my greatest expectations with a beautiful finish to boot. Their workmanship is of the highest standard and they are total gems who'll i'll come back to over and over and over again in the future.
