When considering getting a new kitchen, one of the most significant considerations is the cost. And really, how much does a new kitchen cost? The answer depends on what it is you want and need. Explore our guide to find exactly what you can expect to pay and where you can save money to start your kitchen renovation journey with confidence.

The average cost of a kitchen

It’s important to remember that every kitchen renovation project has unique factors that can impact the overall cost. You’ll want to consider things like the scope of the renovation, the size of your kitchen, the design you’re after, the units you’ll need, and the kitchen installation – all considerations that can significantly impact the final price tag.

Estimates suggest that, on average, kitchen renovations range between £5,250 and £14,000 in the UK, with minor projects retailing for around £7,000-£9,000 for a small kitchen, including fitting.

Our Leende range starts from £1,738.

At Smile Kitchens, however, we are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality kitchen designs at the best value, with costs starting at as little as £1,738.

What factors do I need to consider?

Our Quooker sink and tap in gold use 50% less energy than a kitchen boiler but comes at a premium price point.

Firstly, a kitchen is an investment, both personally and financially. The average lifetime of a good quality kitchen is made to last at least 15 years. It takes us through many of life’s special moments, from family dinners to joyous celebrations and gatherings with loved ones.

A practical and well-designed kitchen is also a financial investment that can save costs and increase the worth of your home. Thanks to technology, new appliances are becoming more energy-efficient, reducing our electricity bills, but most importantly and can also add value to your property. Therefore, it is essential to carefully consider the plan and features of your kitchen to ensure that it meets your needs and enhances the overall functionality of your home.

Some technical questions that significantly affect your price are elements like:

  • Any necessary building work – are you extending the space?
  • Can you reuse any of your current kitchen/appliances?
  • Is any rewiring or plumbing work needed?
