Reasons To Hire A Professional Kitchen Fitter

An attractive kitchen can add a real wow factor to your home, but choosing the right kitchen interior can be time consuming and expensive. Make sure you get the job done right first time round by hiring a professional kitchen fitter. Whether you’re looking for fitted Kitchens Glasgow, Aberdeen or York, be sure to visit kitchen showrooms before placing an order and discuss with staff the fitting process; they will further explain to you the following benefits of hiring a professional kitchen fitter:

Installing a kitchen is strenuous; you need to uninstall current worktops, measure up and then re-hang wall fittings and countertops with absolute precision – not something that should be attempted by an amateur. Professional kitchen fitters will make the installation easy, taking it completely out of your hands and allowing you to get on with your day whilst they do the hard work. A professional fitter will have all the tools and skills required including an eye for detail to ensure that everything is perfectly aligned. Professional fitters will be able to provide a high quality finish that’s just not achievable when you DIY.


You might be tempted to enlist the help of a friend or family member to install your kitchen, but don’t count on the extra pair of hands making the job any less stressful. With a professional fitter you will get the added bonus of professional customer service, which makes having your kitchen temporarily in tatters more bearable. If you hire someone who doesn’t know what they are doing, you also run the risk of damage to your property (including your gas and water pipes) and could be left with a huge mess to clean up after installation.

Then there is the invaluable aftercare advice that a professional kitchen fitter will be able to provide on completion of the fitting process. Knowing how to maintain your stone worktops, or who to call should you have any issues with the final fit, will enable you to focus on enjoying your new kitchen without working about correcting a DIY ‘bodge job’.


So how do you find a reputable kitchen fitter to complete your renovation? Firstly, choose a professional that only fits kitchens, meaning they have many hours of experience on the job at hand and a specialist eye. Next, make sure you do your research and look out for quality recommendations and positive reviews. It’s also worth checking the company history, if they are a newly established firm they may not have yet proved themselves, which makes them a risky choice.

Finally, discuss your kitchen with a professional fitter in your home before you place an order. A friendly chat about the process and your requirements will help you gauge their attitude and level of customer service. The right fitter for the job should have no problem answering any questions, willingness to spend time discussing any concerns or queries shows that they will get the job done right.
