How much would a new kitchen cost?

It’s impossible to answer a question like ‘how much does a new kitchen cost?’ without knowing more detail about the project first. There are many variables to take into consideration, such as kitchen size and shape, the price of your chosen unit range, how many internal mechanisms and drawers needed, appliances required, how extensive your renovations are going to be, etc.

Perhaps a better way of tackling the cost question is, to begin with, your total budget and design your new kitchen around what you can afford.

If your current kitchen is outdated or damaged, then you may want to consider installing a new kitchen. A newly fitted kitchen usually consists of new cabinets, kitchen worktops, appliances like a fridge, freezer and stove, wall decoration and tiles.

Considering Kitchen Costs

It’s hugely important to bear in mind that even if you have a small budget, you don’t have to compromise on quality. To give you an idea of basic starting costs of our ranges, the Nobilia range starts from £7,000; for the Schüller C Range, it’s £9,000; and for our premium Schüller Next 125 range, it’s £11,000. These costs include the price of the units and manufacturer’s laminate worktops, plus a sink and taps, a full site survey and delivery of the kitchen.

The average cost of a new kitchen depends on the kitchen unit costs and laminate worktops you decide to invest in, size of the room and the quality of materials you choose. For a medium-sized kitchen with average materials, you should expect it to cost between £6000 and £9000.

The Nobilia and C Range kitchens are comparable in cost to the kitchens you can buy from the major DIY stores, but they offer better quality units and mechanisms you’d expect from renowned German manufacturers. This means they are more durable long term, look great for longer, ultimately giving you better value for money. And all of our kitchen ranges are made from sustainable timber.

Adding in the details

If you’re trying to keep the costs down there are a few things you can do to help, firstly still choose good brand appliances but the basic models without all the optional, often unused extras that push the price up. Secondly, avoid adding into your design too many drawers and internal mechanisms, these too will push the price up.

Moreover, when factoring in your kitchen appliances cost, you must look to your existing kitchen and the appliances you can use from your old, in your new. For example, your washing machine, kitchen sink, fridge, freezer and electrical appliances are often transferrable from one kitchen to another and can save you money.

Average Cost of Kitchen Units

All our ranges offer additional storage accessories which will help you keep your kitchen organised and ensure you can always easily find the utensils you want. Accessories range from cutlery/pan drawer dividers, splashback rail organisers, le-mans mechanisms for corner units, to integrated scales, retractable pull-out shelves, and recycling units. You can even add tablet holders and pop up sockets so you can keep your technology out of harm’s way as you follow the recipe.

Other factors to take into account when budgeting for your new kitchen are whether or not you need to retile the floor or walls, add splashbacks, install new lighting, rewire the electrics, replace water pipes, etc.

New Kitchen Costs & Considerations

Before you can set a budget for your bespoke kitchen cost, there’s one thing you need to know: just how much does a new bespoke kitchen cost? Ask the question upfront at a kitchen showroom, and you may not get a concrete answer — it of course depends on the size, style, finish and any work required to fit your new kitchen. However, for someone just starting out on their kitchen design journey, some ballpark figures can really help in organising your budget.

According to a recent report by Rated People, 68% of Brits set out to tackle a kitchen renovation with a budget of under £4,000 — proving you don’t need a huge budget to start thinking about changing your space — while 11% have over £8,000 saved for their new kitchen. We take a look at the average costs of a range of different kitchens, from budget to bespoke and everything in between, to see how far you can stretch your budget for your renovation project.

Is a Flat-Packed Kitchen Cheaper?

Well potentially, yes. For example, Schuller Kitchens’ budget C range has good quality kitchen units. These units are the same quality of cabinetry as its fully assembled range, but costs 25% less, estimated at between £1,425 for a small kitchen to £3,275 for an extra large kitchen. However, you’ll need to take into account any extra costs associated with fitting the kitchen, as a flat-packed design will take longer to install on site. We highly recommend investing in good quality units, as when it comes to kitchen cabinets, the poor man pays twice and you want quality over quantity.

You will also have to pay for kitchen fitters to come and install your new flat packed kitchen. Kitchen installation prices vary but ensure that you factor this cost into your budgeting. You can save money on your kitchen installation by using a local kitchen fitter and supplier like KDCUK.
