Hi, I’m Lloyd Feldman
For many years, I worked for the company that supplied most of the kitchen showrooms around the country. Therefore, I know which showrooms sell what kitchen ranges and how the price and quality of all the ranges compare.
I’m passionate about helping people find the best value kitchens – however large or small their budget.
Why is it so hard to find the best value kitchen?
Too much information
Buying a kitchen can seem like a minefield. With so much information to take in, ensuring you get the best kitchen for your money can seem like an impossible task.
Sales tricks & presure selling
The buying process is made harder by the chains who’ll try to mislead you into thinking you’re getting a bargain by inflating their prices so they can then knock 50% off. They then try & pressurise you into making a quick decision by telling you their sale ends in a few days. Unfortunately, rather than getting a bargain, all you’ll end up getting from the chains is an overpriced, low quality kitchen.
Then there’s the builders. They’ll tell you they’ll save you a fortune on a kitchen because of the 75% discounts they get off places like Howdens & Benchmarx. Unfortunately, this is the same trick the chains use – designed to mislead you into thinking you’re getting a bargain. Howdens & Benchmarx inflate their prices so builders can then tell consumers they get 75% off. So, once again, rather than getting a bargain, all you’ll end up getting from places like Howdens & benchmarx is an overpriced, low quality kitchen.
Buy cheap, buy twice
Finding the best value kitchen isn’t as simple as just finding the cheapest. kitchens vary in quality & buying the cheapest is usually a false economy. The cheapest kitchens tend to be made from low quality components that simply don’t last. Therefore, if you buy the cheapest kitchen, don’t be surprised if it starts to look tired & worn out after just 2 or 3 years.
Gaurantees that aren’t worth the paper they’re written on
To find the best value kitchen, you first need to first identify which kitchens are built to last a mimimum of 10 years. You then buy the least expensive one of these. However, this is easier said than done. Don’t assume that because units come with a 10 or 15 year gaurantee, they’ll actually last 10 or 15 years. unfortunately this isn’t the case. If you do get a problem & try claiming under the gaurantee, you’ll most likely be told the problem is caused by wear & tear which isn’t covered.
What’s worse is when you buy a kitchen with no gaurantee. This is what you effectivley get when you buy a Howdens or Benchmarx kitchen. This is beacuse your contract is with the builder & not with Howdens or Benchmarx. Therefore, if you do go back to Howdens or Benchmarx with a problem, they’ll be unable to help & will advise you to go back to your builder. However, when you go back to your builder, they usually tell you there’s nothing they can do & recommend you go back to Howdens or Benchmarx.
We’ll find you the best value budget kitchen
I started Kitchenfindr to help consumers get a better deal. I do this by putting them in touch with local showrooms whose kitchens cost similar to places like Howdens, Benchmarx, Wickes & Wren, but are higher quality & will last much longer. Plus, unlike the chains & builders, they won’t inflate their prices so they can then knock 50% off. Instead, they’ll just quote you their best price first.
We’ll even find you a Designer German kitchen for a similar price to places like Howdens, Wickes & Wren, or just a fraction more. Plus, some of the showrooms will also throw in up to £2,500 worth of FREE worktops & appliances when you buy the units.
We’ll find you the best value luxury kitchen
Although quality isn’t usually an issue when buying a luxury kitchen, paying over the odds can be. Our service will find you a luxury kitchen with everything you’d expect from a luxury kitchen, except for the luxury price tag.
Is there a catch?
No – using us is just like using a mortgage broker to find the best deal on a mortgage. The only difference is, we’ll find you the best deal on a kitchen rather than a mortgage.
Like a mortgage broker, our service is FREE to consumers. If you buy a kitchen from a showroom we recommend, the showroom pays us a commission. This cost has no effect on the price you pay as showrooms do not pass it on.
