We went to look at B&Q kitchens today and I am interested to know your experiences.

Good or bad.

Thanks in advance :-)

ghost come back?

they are fine once they have been delivered. getting the right parts delivered is another matter.

Hello mutley :)

There are not many good kitchen reviews out there lol

they normally deliver with missing parts which means you will have to wait for a week to get the missing part so you will need a fitter that will come back to finish the job when the missing part arrives or get B&Q fitter as then they deal with B&Q direct.

Yes very as they come pre built so saving plenty of time when fitting the kitchen ..

we went for a quote with B@Q Magents and Howden ( your need a mate in the trade!!)

after some serious haggling we ended up at Howdens .. but my advice is haggle hard and your sure to get a good deal .. ours started out at over £5000 and eventually down to £3000

This was our problem with the bedroom furniture. It's fantastic quality when I'd put it all together but I seemed to spend more time speaking to B&Q to get the right parts delivered than I did actually making the stuff up.

20 years is that all, shows what a throw away society we live in, replace only when unusuable/knackered oO

I sell kitchens for a living at B&Q just being honest not biased the Cooke & Lewis range is as good as any other brand and at a fraction of others prices so you can't go wrong there but there is nothing wrong with the basic IT range either. I always tell my customers that does not really matter if you go for an expensive or a cheap kitchen all boils down to the fit and how well you look after it

We have the money so we might as well have a nice home if we can Sassie.

We both work hard and have no children and I am a little bit house proud.

Ive never been impressed with a B&Q kitchen and I wouldnt have one given to me really. Taking a look at one of their displays in store thats been there for a while normally says it all. Wonky cupboards, falling to peices and generally knackered.

If you do go there what ever you do DONT get the fitting done by B&Q and that goes for all the others too, homebase, wickes, magnet, ikea. They will rob you blind and its subcontracted out anyway.

I used work for a made to measure kitchen company and ive seen it all before. I know what a good quality kitchen looks like and they dont come from B&Q. But if I wanted a flat pack id go to Howdens as already mentioned, I'd save the rest till last.

why are all kitchen packers have half a brain and can't put together all the items on the list or the kitchen planner having the other half of the brain and can't order all the necessary parts from the plan?

if only they could put their two halves together, we could have someone who is competent enough to put together a correct list. oO

i had the same problem with parts missing from delivery and order when i ordered a kitchen from MFI.

We just had ours done by Tesco (provided by Mark 2).

I must say we are very very please with ours.

We have no idea Tesco even did kitchens, but throughout the whole process we were very pleased.

decent quality, only thing id say is becarful of the "extras" they put in there. i paid £1200 for mine (fitted myself) and found all sorts of extras i didnt ask for.

one in particular was a corner shelf thing which slid out of the cupboard. i never asked for it and found that it cost £180! went straight back along with a bunch of other stuff.
