Typical cost of a Granite & TREND Transformations kitchen makeover?
Posted on 14th June 2019
It’s the question on everyone’s lips.
Indeed, it’s one of the most asked questions to our franchisee network – and the hot topic on the questions that come in via our HQ Facebook Page.
When planning a new kitchen, regardless of the size of the kitchen, or the materials – we know that we’re in for some major disruption – not only to our living environment, but to our finances too.
The average cost of a UK kitchen
It’s not a simple task to find out the cost of the average kitchen – but according to the 2018 Kitchen Trends report from Houzz, the average budget and spend for kitchen renovations in UK homes is between £10,001 and £25,000. With 22% of homeowners spending between £25,000 – £50,000 and 10% spending over a whopping £50,000!
The average time to fit a UK kitchen?
Well, this is even more tricky to nail down. Taking to the trusty Google search will reveal a number of reports showcasing anything from six days to six weeks to sixteen weeks! All dependent upon the scale of the project.
For any readers that have had their kitchen refurbished and have had to wash their dishes in the bath – even six days of disruption becomes seriously painful. And the reality is, most refurbishments tend to go on much longer than six days, due to weather, work force issues and a whole number of other eventualities.
So, enter our innovative solution… Granite &TREND Transformations, a cost-effective way to get a brand new kitchen look and feel, without the hefty costs and huge disruption.
Whilst it’s not a perfect science to advise on the exact cost of one of our ‘makeover’ kitchen transformations – we ran some numbers and the costs and timings look as follows:
- Approximately £3,000* for Granite worktop replacement with timescales, one day.
- Approximately £3,000* for full doors and drawer replacements and with timescales of one to two days.
So, for an average size kitchen, a full kitchen makeover (replacement worktops and doors) the timescale is approximately one to three days and the cost, approximately £6,000.
Of course, as cited above, these are approximates based on averages taken from a large sample of customer makeovers. The individual actual cost will depend on the complexity of the project and the size of your kitchen and the materials you choose – (and your consultant will tailor your proposal specifically for your needs), but at least the average costs and timings give you an idea to start from.
And, considering the cost of an average brand-new kitchen and just as importantly, the pain of the weeks and weeks of disruption – the fact that you can effectively get the same effect, in just one to three days, is incredible.
You can view the range of kitchen tops and doors available – and also take some time to hear for yourself the reviews about what our customers say about their Granite & TREND Transformation kitchen makeovers.
Your kitchen transformation really is simple, quick and cost effective if you simply… #gooverthetop!
