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 in quality?
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.
How do Mackintosh Kitchens compare in price?
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 30% more.
This is similar to many of the high-quality brands sold in the independent showrooms. A few brands, however, offer much the same quality as Mackintosh Kitchens, but for a price close to the chains. Mackintosh will certainly give you an excellent kitchen that will last for years, but you can still get a much better value kitchen if you know where to look.
There’s a problem, however. Only a few brands, sold in a few independent showrooms, offer this kind of value. So, how do you find them?
That’s where we come in. Having spent years supplying kitchen showrooms all over the country, I have a good understanding of which showrooms sell what kitchen ranges and how the price and quality of those ranges compare to each other & to the chains & trade only suppliers.
So, get in touch & I’ll point you in the direction of local showrooms who’ll offer you a kitchen that’s comparable in quality to Mackintosh, but costs up to 30% less. To put this into context, for a good sized Mackintosh kitchen comprising say 25 units, a 30% saving on the units should equate to a saving of about £4,000.
