Looking for guidance on affordable kitchens in the UK.


Wasn't sure whether to put this in Home Improvement or in here.
I have stumbled upon a nice little kitchen to do this week and was wondering if anyone from the UK knew of any places that do nice, affordable kitchens.

Lemme see if I read this right.
You're going to hire yourself out to redo someone's kitchen... but you want to hire a third party to come in and do it for you. That about right?

I gotta say... you Brits sure seem to do DIY a lot differently than we do here in The Colonies.

Woah way to jump the gun. I'm planning the refit, ripping out the old kitchen and completing the new floor as well.
I just wondered if there was anywhere with decent prices to get base units and doors.

Why not ask another local contractor? I'm sure they know where to purchase good stuff at discount.

A guy in the UK is contracting to demo a kitchen but doesn't know where to get cabinets so is asking guys in the US on where to get cabinets in the UK....?

It's about par to me asking a bloke in the UK where the best place is to get gears for my jeep.

I don't see this going well.

Yeah I think that's best if I am looking for National enquiries.

I haven't but I shall.

I'm going to stick on the forums since I'm looking for education as well as just Q&A.
