A 21 year old Magnet Minster Oak kitchen was due for replacing in a typical 4 bedroomed detached house in Surrey. The large kitchen measured 4.6m long by 3m wide. The requirement was for a complete new kitchen in high gloss cream with absolute black solid granite worktops. The latest up-to-date style with maximum 'Wow factor' at the lowest cost was the goal. The budget was £8000 but with two existing quotes in excess of £3000 for the granite worktops alone and installation quoted at £1700 it didn't leave a lot of room.

DIY Homefit supplied and fully installed a complete new kitchen in Bella Venice design, high gloss cream including new carcasses, doors and drawers, granite worktops with upstands all round, double butler undermounted sink, 5 burner hob plus new microwave. All delivered and installed on time and within budget.

Broken down the approximate prices are as follows:

  • Carcasses £1500
  • Doors and drawer fronts £1800
  • Microwave plus built-in kit £178
  • Double butler sink, tap and 5-burner gas hob £820
  • Granite worktops £2200
  • Fitting cost £1500
  • Total cost £7998

I thought it was going to be impossible to get the quality of kitchen I wanted at a price I could afford. Local quotes had ranged from £11000 to £18000. My new kitchen is just outstanding and exudes quality. I did not think I could achieve this class of kitchen and 'wow factor' anywhere within or even close to my budget. I am delighted with the results.

However, having spent my budget I still had to redecorate and tile so I put my old kitchen units on ebay and they sold for £220! As the tiles and paint cost £150 I've ended up well within my budget. Now I'm off shopping for accessories and drapes. I think cream and duck egg blue will be nice....

A new look kitchen in a small rented flat for less than £1300, fully fitted

Before The owner of the flat needed to completely update the 1970's original kitchen. She wanted, of course, a top quality fitted kitchen for the lowest cost.

AfterIt was important that she could be sure of a long and trouble free life. For this reason the premier quality worktops from Bushboard's Prima range were considered to be ideal as the Formica decorative laminate top is wrapped around the top and bottom of the front edge and is finished underneath, about 25mm in, with a waterproof seal. This design ensures that any water from the sink or condensation from a dishwasher never makes contact with the base board thereby eliminating the possibility for the board to absorb water and swell.  

Before After 


DIY Homefit Ltd. supplied the new worktops, sink, tap, doors, drawer and drawer front, all complete with new handles and hinges. The installation was completed in 2 man days.



The Owner, K R writes...

I wanted to replace the kitchen in the flat which I rent out. Obviously I was keen to keep the cost down but mindful of the fact that cheap options don't survive in a rental property. The solution that DIY Homefit offered enabled me to put in a sturdy, practical but modern kitchen that looked brand new at a quarter of the price I thought I would have to spend. Minimum disruption was a real plus as my tenants had full use of the kitchen whilst the refurbishment was taking place. All-in-all a very good option for £1285.00, fully installed.
