Most people tend to get a couple of quotes before choosing a kitchen builder. When choosing a kitchen builder, it is essential that you compare apples with apples. Not all quotes are the same. Whilst one may appear cheaper, it may be because it uses less expensive, lower quality materials and hardware. It is important that you get each kitchen builder to quote the same design, materials and hardware, then you can truly compare and make an educated decision.
To ensure that a quote meets your expectations, it helps to have a clear idea on your budget and what look you are trying to achieve. Like most things, kitchens come in all shapes and sizes and can be less or more expensive depending on the selections you make. If the quote does not meet your initial expectations, have a discussion with the kitchen builder about what adjustments that can be made. It may be easily rectified by something as simple as selecting a different stone colour, for example.
