Why Choose Us?

We know that buying a new kitchen is a big decision and investment. For some this will be a ‘once in a lifetime’ purchase. With so much to think about and so many decisions to make the company you trust with the job of designing and installing your new kitchen has got to be the right one. There are many reasons why we feel that you should consider giving that responsibility to The Kitchen Workshop.

Why Buy from an Independent Retailer?

Everybody is on the lookout for a good deal, and it’s easy to be seduced by the eye-catching discounts of the big DIY centres. But is a good price the same as a good deal? And if you overlook your local independent kitchen specialist, what exactly will you miss out on?

As an independent company we have the choice and freedom to select the brands that we use and are associated with.  We pride ourselves in having friendly and knowledge designers, with no targets to meet so there will be no pushy sales.  For us it’s about selling a quality product, at an affordable price that is right for you.  With over 30 years’ experience we feel we know what it takes to create your vision

Good advice that you can trust is a vital ingredient to creating the perfect Kitchen. Our designers will listen to your needs, use their knowledge and expertise, and give advice and guidance where needed. Whether you want to know about layout ideas, appliances, worktops, or the latest on-trend colours then our designers are here to help.

Purchasing a new Kitchen is not a five-minute process. To get it right it’s important that we work with you to evolve the design and various aspects of the kitchen and the items that you choose. You are always welcome to come in and see us – some customers may choose to visit a couple of times, for others they may want to come in many more times to ensure they get it right. We encourage you to come in as often as you feel it is necessary to get it completely perfect!

They will translate your ideas and those of their own into designs that will work in your home and to your budget. Their extensive experience, product knowledge and passion, coupled with the breadth of choice available will ensure you will end up with a kitchen that is individual to you and your home.

We have many years of experience in working within all kinds of properties and we understand the pitfalls to avoid, and what makes a project run successfully.  Having Designers that are heavily involved with the manufacture and installation process, gives them the knowledge to be able to better understand the practicalities of a design to ensure that it is both functional and visually stunning.

If not booked already why not give us a call to arrange a visit to our showroom and a no-obligation site survey.  Alternatively, if you prefer you can bring us your measurements.

All the cabinetry is manufactured here on the Island in our workshop.  Using components that we have selected based on their quality and affordability, we are confident that the quality of our cabinetry will match or surpass that of all other retailers on the island

All our cabinets go to site rigid, so if you are having supply only there will be no flat pack arriving.

Manufacturing our own cabinetry allows us to offer more choice and customisation, creating a product that is designed and tailor-made specifically for you and your property.  So, whether you want the oven higher, or lower, or you want an additional shelve in that wall cabinet then we can plan this in create a product just for you.

It’s rare to have a room where everything fits perfectly.  Many rooms will have obstacles that have to be worked around, such as odd size rooms, low windows, pipes, boilers or maybe just an odd size alcove.  Instead of the kitchen fitter having to chop and change the cabinet at point of fitting we can manufacturer it to the required specification.

Got angled ceilings in the bedroom?  Not a problem, we can make a cabinet for this to maximise the space you have available.

The installation process is one of the most important stages in bringing out the best of your new kitchen or bedroom.  For those that opt to take advantage of our installation service, you will be safe in the knowledge that our skilled installation team members are employed by us – and not subcontractors.

Our Installation teams on average fit a combined total of over 100 kitchens and bedrooms a year.  This in-depth knowledge and expertise of our products allows us to offer the highest quality of fitting.  Our Installation Manger oversees all the fitting, and each project is checked upon completion, and nothing will get signed-off that has not met the companies set standards.

Unforeseen problems can occur – but with such a high level of knowledge and experience we will be able to overcome it with minimal fuss and interruption.  And all work carried out by our installation team is covered by our guarantee.

Finding, organising, and dealing with the various trades can be a bit of a nightmare – at The Kitchen Workshop we are happy to take away this hassle by organising the trades for you.  Whether you need an electrician, gas engineer, plasterer, tiler, decorator, or some minor building works, we have trusted trade people that we work with all year round who are available to carry out this work for you.  And don’t worry about having to organise them – leave it to your dedicated Designer/Project Manager who will organise the quote, book them in and oversee the associated works to ensure that it runs smoothly from start to finish.

Our Installation teams on average fit a combined total of over 100 kitchens and If you are planning to have a new flooring then why not visit our neighbours, Long Lane Carpets & Flooring, who will be able to offer you a first-class service and product.  We will liaise with them to plan in the preparation and installation of the floor around the fitting of the new kitchen or bedroom.

Have your own preferred trades? No problem! we will happily work with them to ensure the installation runs as smooth as possible.

We know that the prospect of having a new kitchen fitted can seem daunting– with all the various trades involved and having to ensure that they turn up when they are meant to can be problematic.  The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house and being without one can be frustrating and an inconvenience –suddenly a simple task of making a cup of tea is suddenly a lot harder.

To ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible, each installation we carry out has its own dedicated designer who will project manage the installation.  Having an in-depth knowledge of the design and a close working relationship with the fitting team and the various trades they can ensure that the process keeps to the planned schedule – and should an issue arise then they will be there to address it in the most efficient manner.

We are confident that once you engage with one of our designers you will find the level of service, product knowledge, and design skills unrivalled.  Our Designers, Martin, and Elizabeth will work with you every step of way, from your very first visit to our showroom – right through to the final completion of your new kitchen – and not forgetting the years to follow should you ever need to call upon us for any aftercare.  As a company, we don’t believe in any form of pushy sales, it’s about spending the time and getting it right.

When it comes to choice we are confident that our extensive range of frontals, worktops, interior colours, cabinetry options, appliances, and accessories will be one of the largest you will find on the island.  Whether you are looking for something from budget to breathtaking, classic to contemporary, then we have options to suit.

Proudly working with some of the leading suppliers to the industry we are confident that the products we offer are not only affordable, but quality.

Our showroom features over 20 displays, with working appliances, hot tap, accessories, and a broad range of designs to inspire.

We are confident that when compared like-for-like you will find that the cost of our kitchens is comparable to others.  Every kitchen is different, and every client has different wants & needs so until we have a better understanding of those it’s very hard to be able to put a price to a design.

For most of our customers our kitchens generally fall within the £10k – £20k* price range, with larger projects costing upwards of £20,000. As your kitchen will be tailored to your lifestyle and home, the overall price of a project will vary depending on its size and the materials chosen.

We do not believe in trying to entice a quick sale by some form of so-called ‘Sale’.  We will not double the price and then offer it you for halve.  We believe that whatever month you purchase the price should always be competitive.

Unlike some retailers it is not just about selling volume.  For us we are about selling the right product for you – and if that means advising you to opt for something that will lower the value of your order – then that is what we will do.

*Pricing refers to the cost of kitchen doors, cabinets and fitting of the kitchen, appliances, worktops, sinks and taps, handles and unit lighting but not flooring or building work.
