What is the average price of a fitted kitchen?
We all dream of having a great kitchen at home. Even if you don’t cook much! It is indeed an unequalled added value. But many people think that this is a totally unattainable project, as the price can be so high. Let’s find out what the reality is.
An idea of the price of a kitchen
When you want to renovate your kitchen or install a new kitchen in your new home, you think about everything you need, the layout of the room, the furniture, the appliances. You also have to decide whether to do everything yourself, from assembling the kit furniture to installing it, or to leave the project to experienced kitchen designers and simply enjoy your kitchen once it is in place. Then it’s time to focus on the budget.
By simply listing what you need, you can easily see that the bill can be high. And this is even more true with a fitted kitchen, which includes all the elements of a kitchen, the furniture, the appliances and why not the installation of these. You therefore have a turnkey kitchen, ready to be used.
The price will depend on various criteria. First of all, what you want. Top brand furniture or top of the range appliances will naturally increase the price. You will also have to take into account the various works required to transform the room into a kitchen: plumbing, electricity, installation, etc.
The price will also vary depending on the kitchen designer you choose. They may offer entry-level or very high-end kitchens.
Depending on these different criteria, the price of a kitchen will therefore be completely different.
Find out more about the budget for your kitchen
Let’s see how much your fitted kitchen can cost you depending on its range.
For small budgets, the entry-level fittings will cost you around 3000 euros without the electrical appliances (a minimum of 1000 euros is required for quality equipment). You will also have to assemble and install your furniture yourself and, if necessary, carry out the necessary work to ensure that everything works properly.
If you can afford to spend more, you can choose a mid-range kitchen, which generally comes with a maximum 10-year warranty. Appliances are then included in the price. The price ranges from 4,000 to 12,000 euros, depending on your choices. This range allows you to choose the finishes and materials. Some kitchen designers also offer interesting options, such as resistant opening mechanisms. Some kitchen designers offer basic appliances (refrigerator, hob) for this price.
Finally the top-of-the-range equipped kitchen will cost you at least 12,000 euros. The price can go up to 100,000 euros depending on the elements chosen and the work to be done. This level of the range very often includes appliances, as well as the delivery and installation of the elements.
How much to expect for a fully equipped kitchen?
As you can see, the price of the fitted kitchen will be higher as it is delivered with the appliance and ready to use.
But don’t think that this type of kitchen is just a utopia. It is indeed possible to acquire a fitted kitchen even if your budget is reasonable. You will have to consider the quality of the furniture and the quantity of appliances. You should also know that the more you personalise your space, the higher the price will be.
The minimum price for a fitted kitchen is 5000 euros. It can be found in supermarkets. But at this price, you will not have all the advantages of a “kitchen from a kitchen designer”. The furniture will be of basic quality and the appliances will not be state-of-the-art. It is a perfect choice for those who do not cook much. If, on the other hand, you spend long hours preparing good food, a kitchen from a kitchen designer’s catalogue will give you more satisfaction in the long term.
The furniture will be of a superior quality and will accompany you for many years. The furniture will be made to measure and you will be able to make optimal use of your space without having to run to the other end of the room to get your pan out. You also get a fully customised room, including appliances. The standard price is around €10,000. The more you opt for big brand appliances or the more equipment you have, the more you will have to pay. But 10,000 euros is a good idea if you want to have a beautiful, easy-to-use and functional kitchen. You can ask your kitchen designer for more information. They can offer you very interesting special offers from time to time.
