A fitted kitchen includes all your cabinetry and work surfaces, as well as features like kitchen islands, pantry cupboards, sinks, taps, and storage solutions.

A fully fitted kitchen involves more than just the fitting of cabinets, worktops and appliances. There are sinks, taps, pull-out storage, lighting and much more to consider. Preparing the room is a crucial step, ensuring walls are plastered smooth and ready for painting or tiling. Here’s a brief overview of additional elements required for a comprehensive fit:

1. Plastering: This prepares your kitchen walls, making them smooth and ready for decoration or tiling. It’s essential for a neat finish and helps with insulation and fireproofing.

2. Electrical Work:  Updating or installing new electrical outlets and circuits to accommodate appliances, lighting, and gadgets is vital. This might include special features like under-cabinet lighting or USB charging ports.

3. Plumbing: Adjusting or adding new plumbing to fit the layout of your sink, dishwasher, and any other water-dependent appliances. Proper plumbing ensures everything runs smoothly without leaks.

4. Flooring: Choosing durable and easy-to-clean flooring that complements your kitchen’s design. Installation should be done with precision to handle the high traffic and spills typical in kitchens.

5. Tiling: Often used for backsplashes and walls, tiling adds a protective and decorative layer to surfaces exposed to moisture and stains.

6. Painting: A fresh coat of paint not only gives your kitchen a clean, new look but also helps protect walls and ceilings.

7. Ventilation:  Proper ventilation, such as an extractor fan or hood, is necessary to remove cooking odors and moisture, helping to maintain a comfortable environment.

Each of these elements plays a vital role in creating a functional, durable, and aesthetically pleasing kitchen. It’s also important to consider the quality of materials and workmanship at each stage to ensure the best outcome.

The price of a Mastercraft bespoke kitchen varies based on several factors such as the size of your kitchen, the materials you choose for cabinets and worktops, the type and brand of appliances you select, and any custom features like islands, quartz worktops or special storage solutions.

The cost can range from a few thousand pounds for a basic setup to tens of thousands for a high-end, fully customised kitchen.

The price is impossible to determine without a free consultation as our kitchens start from around £15,000 and go up to over £160,000.
