Ah great ive been waiting ages for MFI to have another sale they dont seem to have them very often at all :roll::whistling::roll::whistling:
#2
now this is a good deal , believe me. if you was to buy like for like from my company you wouldnt hasve much change out of 5 k . i realy dont know how they can do all that for that price.
but one thing is not to skimp on is getting a decent fitter. there are so many many monkeys out there who claim to be master carpenters/ joiners etc , when they can barely scribe a joint of use a level . in alot of cases the fitting cost is more expensive than the cost of the actual kitchen.
but if you are gonna diy , then buy a decent well written and pictured beginners kitchen fit.
alot of it is common sense , but tips on initial laying out and planning will save lots of time and wasted money and the book will pay foritself when it comes to cutting male and female joints of a worktop ( masons mitre joint) and scribing end panels to out of sqare/level walls .
also will cover basic electrics , plumbing and tiling ......its the finnishing touches that make the kitchen stand out and oooozzzz class
remember- you can have a 20 grand kitchen fitted by a monkey and it will look abysmal , but you could have a 3 grand kithen from b& q fitted by a pro and it will look the dogs bits .
sorry for rambling , but well spotted OP heat added .
#3
Just what we have been looking for....
#4
Dont know about anybody else but my kitchen is only half fitted because i've been waiting for a month for the rest of my units to appear .Out of the last 2 deliveries I have accepted 1 unit from 5 delivered because of damaged goods.Been a nightmare of customer services phonecalls and calls & visits to local store .Worth doing a google search on comments about mfi complaints before considering buying a kitchen from them, or the watchdog page.Wish I had.:-(
#5
How do you order this online ?
#6
Just 'Googled' this offer, and it looks like this is the same offer that was available way back in January 2007. (as per MSE Forum).

Not saying it's not a good offer, but just be careful of the alleged RRP of £1600
#7
Would get it, but my kitchen is too big for this.

Voted hot though
#8
Voted Hot - from what I have seen Hygena don't make ropy kitchens...

Almost wished I needed a new kitchen now! :)
#9
These were £250 a couple of months ago... I know this because I got B&Q to price match them - I brought 4 sets. There was an advert in the paper at the time.
#10
I was talking to a fitter the other day and he was moaning about all the people getting bathrooms/kitchens for £200 and expecting the dozens of man hours and tiling, hardware, plumbing etc. needed to fit them, properly, professionally into the bathroom/kitchen, also for, £200, was quite funny :)
#11
thanks about to get a new kitchen voted hot
here is a link to their price book they have full kitchen's on page 3 but only seven cabinet

Lol, we bought our Schreiber kitchen off them almost 10 years ago and they've had a permanent sale on before and since!

The kitchen we got has been very good. Bizarrely, the only defect we've had with it is one of the plastic shelf support lugs snapping. You wouldn't really expect that in the scale of things.

The main tap we got off them wasn't that great either - which was a surprise as it was a decent brand. The handles of the tap were plastic and kept on breaking with the silver coating flaking off too. Make sure you get a tap with metal handles!

We are desperately looking for a nice kitchen for a property we let. However, i am no DIY expert, does anyone know if this kitchen would fit the properties dimensions:

KITCHEN: [10' 11 x 8' 4] (3.33m x 2.54m)

Also, i read the post about getting a fitter to fit it and the cost involved, anyone know roughly what this would cost to fit?

Hoping someone can help!!

It's obviously not an exact science, but a lot of trades people seem to be charging around the £200 a day mark nowadays.

You could try using the site ratedpeople.com. Just submit the job description for the job you want doing and you'll get appropriate trades people contacting you in your area for quotes. The good thing is there are customer reviews on the site for each trades person. We've just used it to find a painter and decorator and although we haven't had the work done yet, his 100% reviews are very accurate for his great attitude and ease to deal with.

Ensure you have the complete specs of the kitchen to hand and get some quotes done, SHOWING THEM the kitchen you want them to do.
They should give you fair price, especially if you mention you are getting several quotes, be prepared to put down decent deposit for decent work though and ensure they have proper Terms and Conditions you both sign for any work done with the specifics listed.

Don't expect it to just be a few hundred quid though.

[FONT=Arial Unicode MS]I,too let properties and fit mine out with other peoples unwanted kitchens. They usually only want £100-200 for them and often come with many unwanted appliances.[/FONT]

I got a MFI kitchen last year which included £1500 worth of bosch appliances for around £2000 including cabinets sink etc.a tip is to buy only the package on offer, nothing else, they want you to add extra cabinets, appliances and things where they will make some money, but these are available from Howdens for half the MFI price to the trade, so make up your own business or get a friend or your employer to buy any extras you need.

I also fitted mine myself except plumbing, electrical and worktops( which was only around £300), its fairly simple, just take your time and follow the included instructions a bit like adult lego, I have seen some of my families so called professionally fitted kitchens and although they look ok from the outside when you open any cupboard doors the finish isn't too clever looking.Incidentally if you are looking to get all this done by fitters don't expect much change out of £4k

Got this package a couple of years ago but it was a bit cheaper...

Not only cheaper, it came with Dishwasher, Oven and Hob and extractor, along with everything listed.
#19
So you got the £445 package with a Dishwasher, Oven, Hob and extractor?
#20
i cant even find it online, only seperate units which are half price.
#21
another question, does this come with the cupboard doors and handles?! If not, where can i get the same style?!
#22
Please be aware before getting this kitchen that as said before that it will cost around min £1000 for fitting and if you are getting a new kitchen you will want new tiles oven hob etc etc and this will push the price of fitting up not forgetting the price of the new stuff.
#23
Before anyone gets too carried away by this, we were in MFI for a quote last weekend. Got this range quoted along with a more expensive kitchen. For this they wanted nearly 7K for our 10 x 10 kitchen. (The price example they give for that amount of units was £600) That included a ridiculous £3200 for fitting. I will be getting my joiner to quote me after easter and will look at the Howdens idea as suggested in this thread too.
#24
Where are people getting their prices from from, i know many decent kitchen fitters who will fit kitchens for much cheaper. I got my own fitted for £500 when wickes asked for £1300 a few years ago. I fitted my last one myself, bought a few tools, it wasnt that difficult, most of the time is taken by building the units.
Installing each wall unit first is a matter of screwing a couple of brackets to the wall and making sure they are level, then you just hang the unit on and adjust the brackets to make the unit absolutely level. Base units are equally easy requiring only a couple of brackets. To fit the wall and base units you need a drill(£15) and spirit level(£5) and maybe a jigsaw(£15) to cut around pipework for the base unit, thats it!
Worktops are a bit trickier if you are after a professional finish, but if you are happy with using end plates then thats also easy and will require a circular saw(£25) to cut neat straight edges, measure twice cut once. For the sink cutout drill a few holes first then use a jigsaw to cut along a template of the sinks inner position. Any new plumbing can be very easy as you can use compression joints everywhere which only requires a couple of spanner.

Save yourself a packet just by doing the floor and wall units yourself and call someone in to do nice worktop joints and fit the sink. Remember fit the doors to the units at the very end to prevent any damage.
#25
The difficult bit with kitchens is fitting worktop with corners. It's quite simple to put in one of those horrible metal jointing strips, but if you want a nice, fluch, joint, you'll need a big router, some cutters, a worktop jig and some scrap peices to test run on. This is not for the feint hearted. Screw it up and you'll probably need a new length of worktop.

As for MFI? Well, as a regular on shows like WatchDog, I don't think I'll be rushing to go buying anything from them that I can't take directlty away from the store on the day - I don't care how cheap it is.
#26
Well guys Im on a budget, will be renting the place out. Saw the post saying they got this kitchen for £250- now that is a super deal. Yes it all depends on how much the fitting costs and how handy u r urself.

I will be putting the stuff together and then get someone on to do the worktop and sink. Yes tiles and appliances will add to the cost too. But Im hoping to sort the rest of the fitting for £250.

Also looking for a bathroom suite - in fact that was what I actually went shopping for!
#27
whats all this 7k 20k rubbish for a kitchen ? it is flat pack chipboard furniture screwed to the god damm wall.

How thick is the worktop?cant get on the website.
#33
not that good really if you compare prices to a trade outlet like howdens.....

£20+ vat for 1000m hi line base units and £25 for worktops for the think one or £38 for the thick one..

How ever good deal for joe blogs

It used to be just run of the mill plain white 40mm stuff, probably the same
#35
Ramsay Ladders
will look at the Howdens idea as suggested in this thread too.


Think you need to be in the trade or know someone in the trade and guessing if you allowed MFI to even quote you for fitting, you probably dont :roll:
#36
Its black speckled worktop. Looked ok to me. Not sure how thick it was though. Looked pretty standard.

So is Howdens cheaper / better? Will go look.

Oven hob package for £199 sounds good.

EDIT> Just looked at Howdens website - dont see any prices. So hard to compare. Shame.

another question, does this come with the cupboard doors and handles?! If not, where can i get the same style?!


Yes it comes with the doors and handles, what you might find is that you require some extra units, but that depends on your kitchen of course
#38
ivrytwr3
So you got the £445 package with a Dishwasher, Oven, Hob and extractor?


Yes but for less than that along with the above mentioned and worktop albeit plain white and the sink complete with tap.

Was quite a deal it has to be said!

If you want this go in and ask them to plan a kitchen based on the package.They wont like it and I have just read on the mfi staff forum that they are making 5% gross profit on these. Say you understand that the odd cabinet might not fit and that you may have to buy some additonal cabinets to make it fit, again they wont want to plan it, but insist.
Basically they advertise a package and when you go in they plan at full price.
I found out 2 ways, once I went in and got a price (after I had seen the package)
Then I worked there as a sales manager for a year. Have a look on money saving expert for my thread on tips and getting a deal at mfi(I have found and pasted below. No more clubcard points though :( )
http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=172382 :

I[FONT=Arial] used to work as a Sales Manager at MFI and If I was you I would go to the following:[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]Sainsburys Homebase (keep an eye out for 10% off fridays)[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]MFI - keep an eye out for 25% - 30% off all items, I will cover more later.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]B&Q.[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]Get 3 plans done. Pick your best one and then ask them all to price based on that, they wont mind doing it as long as you have a list of what you need. Often refered to as a "Larry List".[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]Play one against the other to get a good price. [/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]With MFI always ask to see what their back pocket deals are. You will see it flash up on the screen, if they tab past it they are not offering them to you. Often they are a free dishwasher or extra 5% off. Some sale people offer you this as an incentive to comit on the day or have finance. Dont take either. You moan about the delivery price and say you will collect from store rather than pay delivery.(obviously you wont but helps them to remove the £30-£60) Also read the charter that they want you to sign and cross out bits you dont agree with. One final thing is if you delivery comes and there are a couple of things missing dont refuse the delivery as they often courier down the missing bits. Also sign boxes look ok but contents unchecked to cover you for damage. Plus dont book your fitter until 3-4 weeks after you have your first delivery or make sure he wont charge you if he has to come back and fit some stuff.[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]Scoobyz[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial]PS dont feel pressured into buying when they say offer ends wednesday as there is always a new offer. Dont buy when its bogof as they double prices and deal isnt as good.[/FONT]
