How Much Does It Cost To Fit Kitchen Door Handles?

As soon as the old ones are taken off you will have holes…….. dozens of them! So when you’re choosing new handles, they have to be fitted into these same holes. Hadn’t thought about that had you? Cut down the choice a bit hasn’t it?

Don’t imagine that the new handles will fit the old holes. They may do of course but what if you’ve ordered them over the internet? Can you send them back?

Anyway, assuming you can get ones that fit, a chap will charge half a day to just turn up, remove the old ones and fit the new. You will have to organise all the ordering though!

A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Replacing Kitchen Cupboard Doors

Good idea, get a new kitchen for half the price of, well…… a new kitchen! Have a good look around on the internet, the local DIY stores, timber yards and the dentist’s (all those Country Life magazines)! There are a lot of new designs around. Or, if you fancy being a bit clever you could get a joiner in who will certainly make new doors to your own design, he might struggle with worktops though.

All kitchen cupboards, both floor standing and wall hung are made to the same sizes. There are lots of
different sizes of course but it doesn’t matter if they were made in Lithuania or Luton, they are all interchangeable, so you can go to “WickesbaseandQ”, buy a load of new doors and they will fit your existing old “carcases”.

One last thing, think about the old kick boards. Are you really going to leave the old ones in, with all that new swish stuff being fitted above them?
