Shopping for a new kitchens

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Shopping for a new kitchen can sometimes be a daunting task.? What kitchen style do I like, what is the best layout, how much will I need to spend and which supplier will I choose.

Well in this article, I want to focus on the last two points, cost and supplier.

When listening to people as the look for their dream kitchen and a supplier, the one thing I hear the most is:? “I got a quote off one supplier that was ?6,000 and a quote off another that was ?10,000.”? Most people then assume that the quote for ?6,000 is the best one to go with, but this isn’t always the case.? I would bet anything that both quotes were for different quality of kitchens.

Now I am not saying that both kitchens would not be of good quality.? But lets just say that you are pricing for a painted kitchen.? One quote could be for an MDF door painted and the other quote could be for solid wood painted.? The key here is to always ask each supplier what they are quoting for.

You obviously have to keep budget in mind when pricing around.? But here are a few pointers:

1. Ask each supplier what materials they are quoting for.

2. When you have your quotes together, consider them all while keeping in mind what has been quoted for.

3.? If you are unsure what a particular kitchen supplier has quoted for, contact them and ask them to clarify.? They will be happy to do this.

There are always going to be variations in the cost from one kitchen supplier to another, but the key when shopping around is to make sure you are compairing like-with-like.? That way you will be sure that you are getting the best deal and the best quality for your budget.

AGA launch limited edition in Duck Egg Blue

Friday, June 25th, 2010

AGA Limited Edition

AGA, the worldwide famous oven brand, have launched a new?limited edition 3 oven AGA in duck egg blue.

The limited edition product launch, to celebrate AGA?s 300th anniversary, features a hand enamelled AGA logo and data plate to distinguish the limited edition version from the rest.? It is available with or without a module.

To complement the duck egg blue oven, AGA have also launched a limited production cast iron cookware set.

I personally think this new colour would work wonderfully well with an off white painted kitchen or a warm timber like oak.? Either way, I think AGA are on to a winner with this one.

What do you think?? We always love to hear from you.
