Choose less feature rich appliances
One of the easiest ways to save a lot of money when buying your kitchen is to choose basic appliances. The only differences between a basic £350 Neff or AEG single oven & a top of the range £1,000 Neff or AEG single oven will be the features, the build quality & reliability will be identical as 95% of the parts used will be identical. This also generally applies to the rest of the appliances in your kitchen if chosen from the same brand.
Combine a glass splashback with matching upstand
Another clever way to save money is to have a full height glass splashback behind the hob & to have a shallower matching upstand running along the rest of the worktops. This option works out much cheaper than having a full height glass splashback everywhere and can still look very effective.
An example of a full height glass splashback with a matching upstand can be seen below:
Opt for 2 x 50/50 fridge freezers instead of a separate larder fridge & freezer
A separate tall integrated larder fridge & tall integrated freezer (which is pictured below) offers the ultimate in storage capacity. However, it comes at a price. The most basic separate larder fridge & freezer from Neff costs around £2,000. An alternative to this is to have 2 x 50/50 fridge freezers. these will have an almost identical cooling & freezing capacity but will only cost you around £1,200.
