Finding a tradesman for IKEA kitchen fitting
IKEA kitchens are a good low cost alternative to more expensive brands. The Swedish company is the largest furniture retailer in the world, but that does not mean that everything it makes is easy to assemble.

What do you need to know about IKEA kitchen fittings?
When looking for a fitter, it is important to look over their past projects. Your ideal candidate will have completed several IKEA kitchen fitting jobs, and will have a number of positive customer reviews. Do not simply go for the cheapest option available; while IKEA furniture can be fantastic when it is professionally put together, an amateur job is guaranteed to look awful.
The cost of an IKEA kitchen fitting will vary depending on the kitchen’s size and makeup. How many units are being put together? Are there any fitted appliances that will need to be secured in the framework? You could usually expect to pay between £1400 and £2000, depending on the amount of work involved. To make sure you know what you are paying for, do your best to get an approximate quote rather than an hourly rate.
You must remember to check if your tradesman is qualified to work with your utilities. A kitchen fitter or handyman may not necessarily be qualified to connect your new kitchen to the electricity, water and gas mains. It may be that they need to bring on other tradesmen, such as a plumber or gas safety engineer, in order to complete your project. Discuss all aspects of the the project beforehand so that each and every end is covered. If you do need to bring on additional Pros, you will want to know well in advance. Remember, there should be no hidden fees for your service!
