Kitchen Fitting

The difference between fine and fabulous

As calm as a kitchen seems, there’s a lot going on behind its smooth surfaces. That’s why there are benefits to engaging a team of specialists and skilled kitchen fitting professionals to carry out the work. Mistakes and poor DIY workmanship not only can spoil the look of your new kitchen, they can also cause major structural problems in the future which are costly to fix and generally not covered under product warranties. A quality kitchen designer, cabinetmaker or supplier can advise you on the latest technology, trends, fixtures, fittings, finishes and accessories – helping you bring your vision to life in the best way possible.


You might only be committed to your kitchen supplier or suppliers for a matter of weeks, but you’re committed to their work for years, so deciding which one to go with is an important consideration.

We’ve included some questions to ask your prospective suppliers.If the answer to any of these questions is no, you should consider what risks you are willing to take on to ensure you get the results you want.


■ Have the correct licence or are you registered to carry out the work you are doing?
■ D you use contracts that offer me warranty? and if so, for how long and under what circumstances?
■ Do you a Adhere to a code of ethics and practice Worksafe standards?
■ Carry the correct insurances to safeguard your building work?
■ Can you provide photos of your previous work and referrals?


If you’ve chosen to engage a team of specialists rather than doing it yourself, this is where you can let them do what they do best and watch as all your planning and ideas become a real life kitchen. Obviously it can’t happen instantly, so be prepared to wait for a number of weeks. Your kitchen supplier may have given you a specific end date or an approximate time frame.

With your measurements done you’re all set for the next step!
