If you’re buying a new kitchen, which are you going to go for — the cheapest or the highest quality? Ideally, most of us want both, of course, and we usually end up trying to find the best balance between the two. Mackintosh Kitchens are sold mainly by independent kitchen showrooms, so how do they compare in price and quality to other kitchens?
How do Mackintosh Kitchens compare to the high street chains & trade only suppliers?
When looking for a kitchen, It’s likely that your first thought will be the major high street chains, who are constantly telling us they’re the best. Or maybe you’ll consider going through a local builder to one of the trade-only suppliers. Compared with these, however, Mackintosh Kitchens offer much higher quality and kitchens that will last a lot longer.
For example, the chipboard they use to construct their units is high-density and will support the heaviest worktops without bowing. This contrasts with the chains and trade suppliers, who tend to use cheaper, low-density chipboard that soon starts to bow. The first sign of this is usually seen on the backs of the units. Once the backs start to bow, It won’t be long before they start coming away completely, exposing whatever’s behind them.
In the same way, Mackintosh Kitchens mainly feature high-quality painted or lacquered doors that will never peel. On the other hand, a large percentage of the doors supplied by the chains are low-quality wrapped-type doors. While these might look OK when new, it won’t be long before they start peeling.
As you might expect, the higher quality of Mackintosh Kitchens is reflected in their price. Compared with the chains and trade-only suppliers, their kitchens will generally sell at about 25% more.
How do Mackintosh Kitchens compare to other brands sold by Independent kitchen showrooms?
Quality wise, the quality of the kitchens sold by Independent kitchen showrooms vary. Some are higher quality than Mackintosh, some similar quality & some lower quality.
The same is true for prices. Some of the brands Independents sell cost more than Mackintosh, some similar & some less. Of the brands that cost less than Mackintosh, some cost substantially less. Plus, in our opinion, many of them are just as good quality as a Mackintosh kitchen.
How do you find these brands?
