2 inexpensive kitchen cost examples

When you start looking into choosing a new kitchen one of the biggest considerations is how much will it cost?


Let’s take a look at an example layout applied to two of our popular ranges and get an idea of the costs involved.

How choices affect the price

There are many choices that will determine the final cost of a new kitchen. Variations that greatly affect the price are typically:

  • Size and layout (drawers vs cupboards)
  • Finish choice
  • Handles
  • Appliances
  • Tap & sink
  • Storage Solutions (pullout corners, for example)
  • Worktop (this is a big one – laminate will be considerably different to the cost of quartz, for example)
  • Fitting (including removal of old kitchen)
  • Additional work (electrical, plastering, tiling, flooring etc)

All this, of course, makes it hard to give guide prices – but in an effort to give you an idea we have put together an example layout. Then using two of our most popular ranges we’ll show you how you can get a modern clean look or a slightly more traditional shaker style for similar costs.

A typical kitchen layout

Here is our layout. This is is a typical arrangement without appliances or worktop as these choices can be so varied in cost. For this exercise, let’s stick to the basics.

This layout includes housing for two eye level ovens, wall units, pelmets, housing for an integral extractor, wide drawers and standard cupboards.

Metro – Cost for this layout £2780.00

Our Metro range gives you a modern, sleek look and comes in an impressive range of matt paint effect vinyl colours. The finish is superb and for this example costing I’ve used wide trim handles – these are mid priced at £12 and are currently our most popular for our customers looking for a contemporary modern kitchen.

Solent – Cost for this layout £2790.00

The solent range is a best seller for us – it has the inset panel giving you a more classic Shaker feel . It still feels modern because it has no fuss – the whole Shaker aesthetic is simplicity – but it looks like it has some history to its design. For this example I chose a brushed nickel round handle at £6 (that the Shaker’s would have approved of).

This is another example layout showing the Solent range using the handles I chose for the cost example. The colour illustrated here is Grey Mist.

This example layout goes some way to showing how the costing of a kitchen works – but the best way to find out what you need to spend, or better yet, what we can design to fit your budget, is to get in touch and have us put together a free design and costing for you.
