“I need custom worktops for my kitchen. Is your bespoke service cheaper than a kitchen fitter?” Question of the Week 03.06.17
“I need custom worktops for my kitchen. Is your bespoke service cheaper than a kitchen fitter?”
Every week we publish a question from customers who have recently got in contact with us. Our latest ‘Question of the Week’ comes from Jason in Ledbury, who wants to know whether it’s cheaper to buy custom worktops via our bespoke service than to hire a kitchen fitter.
“We’re currently planning our kitchen and I wanted to do as much of the fitting myself as possible. Is it cheaper to order custom worktops from you rather than hire a fitter to cut the surfaces to size?”
It is perfectly possible to fit your own kitchen these days, even if you only have relatively limited DIY experience. Creating perfect kitchen worktops most certainly requires careful handling of the right equipment, and so we would usually recommend that someone with the right skills and experience is tasked with this job.
Finding a trusted kitchen fitter can be a difficult task, so if you decide to go down this route, we would recommend asking friends and family for a recommendation, to ensure that you employ someone with a proven track record. Also check whether they are familiar with handling the type of material you are going to choose for your kitchen worktops – not all fitters may be experienced in fitting solid wood worktops. To fit kitchen worktops, you will need to allow at least a day’s labour, depending on the size of your kitchen.
If you are happy to fit the worktops yourself, then I would recommend you take advantage of our bespoke kitchen worktops service. This is available for both solid wood and laminate worktops, and is not only highly-affordable, but guarantees a precise finish, too.
All of our custom worktops are cut using the latest CNC machinery, which means that our worktops are made to very fine tolerances, based upon a confirmed diagram devised by our skilled fabrication team.
If you require solid wood worktops with relatively straightforward customisations, these can be ordered directly on our website using the Online Bespoke Worktop Tool. Any bespoke customisations ordered via this tool are subject to a 10% discount, making our service great value for money.
All worktops created by our fabrication team also come pre-oiled, meaning they are instantly ready to install as soon as they are delivered.

All the best,
