How Much Does It Cost To Fit Kitchen Cupboard Doors?

So you have decided on
what you want. We aren’t going to attempt to include the prices of new doors and handles, but the following prices do include all the brackets, hinges and fixings that will be necessary.

Also we have assumed everything is “on site” and the fitter doesn’t have to drive round collecting everything before hand and also that you, are dumping the old stuff.

If you want 10 cupboard doors fitted using the existing hinges, assuming he has to cut new recesses for them and fit new handles. He is likely to charge a day for this…

If you want new kick boards as well…. another half day…..

If you want three, new, mitred corner, solid wood work surfaces, with the old sink and hob re fitted and then two coats of oil……Call this one man two days….

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?
