Your next step is to carry out an in-depth research about the available choices as there are many different qualities and price ranges. Always try to consider any issue or problem that may arise during the installation of a new kitchen make sure you have the required budget to deal with any type of emergencies or unforeseen repairs. Prepare a list of enhancements you want to make for your kitchen such as sink and tap styles, work tops, appliances etc. and stick to that till the completion of the whole procedure.


The best place to start with any new kitchen renovation are floors and walls as it is often difficult and messy to repair walls or floorings after your kitchen is fitted. You will have plenty of space after removing your old kitchen to alter any electrics or plumbing. You have plenty of choices in floorings, for instance; you can opt for hardwood or laminate flooring as these options are quite durable as well as easy to clean and maintain. Some homeowners choose tiles for their main walls in the kitchen while others opt for plain painted walls with a simple tiled splash back.


The secret of most stunning fitted kitchen decor lies in using creative and innovative ideas at the time of renovation. A reputable company such as Lee Jones Building and Roofing Contractors can offer you the best ideas and advice in order to get the most spectacular fitted kitchen within your budget.

    We’ve just moved into our current house in the last 2 months & while the house itself was a good deal, the kitchen is horrid! The previous owner had a new ceiling put in, but it’s a good half foot lower than it was before. Having this raised will mean the tiles don’t go all the way up, so they’ll need ripping off and the walls re-plastered…but the units are already fitted to the wall, skimming the walls would be a nightmare going up to the units & taking them off to plaster & refit will cause headaches. Nightmare! At this point we’re thinking of just holding out until we can rip the whole thing out & start from scratch!

      It could be possible to re-tile without having to replaster the walls or taking the kitchen units out depending on how well those tiles are stuck!

      How come the ceiling had to be lowered so much?

    New Year, New jobs to get done! How long does it normally take to fit a kitchen in a fairly standard, mid terrace? We’re looking at roughly 7m by 2m, trying go make the most of the space we have available and would like some flooring done at the same time? Thanks bud!

      It could take a week, hard to say without seeing it properly. Does anything else in there need to be altered?

    Very interesting points to cover, mate. Right now we’re saving toward getting both our kitchen and main bathroom done as they’re both way outdated and need a refresh. Any similar tips on bathrooms, wet rooms or en suites?

    Thanks mate!!
