If you’re looking for a new kitchen, the chances are you want the highest quality for the lowest price. It’s not an easy riddle to solve, but with all the brands out there, can you find the right one? For instance, how do Mereway Kitchens compare to all the other kitchen brands out there?
How do Mereway Kitchens compare in quality?
Most people’s first thoughts when looking for a kitchen are the major high street chains or the trade only suppliers. These are convenient and very visible, but Mereway Kitchens are actually higher quality and consequently last much longer.
For example, there’s a big difference in the density of the chipboard used to make the unit carcasses. Mereway Kitchens use high-density chipboard that will easily support even heavy worktops for a long long time. By contrast, the much lower-density chipboard used by the chains will soon start to bow, especially at the backs. You won’t have this problem with Mereway Kitchens.
Similarly, the superior edging on the units used by Mereway, of thick PVC or ABS, offers effective impact resistance against accidental knocks. The chains, on the other hand, normally use cheap, iron-on melamine edging, which offers the edges very little protection.
The better-quality brands can usually be found in the independent showrooms, rather than the chains. On the whole, Mereway Kitchens compare reasonably well in quality to these. Their quality is about average for these brands, and considerably superior to the budget flat-packs.
How do they compare in price?
The higher quality of Mereway Kitchens over the high street chains & trade only suppliers is reflected in their prices. In general, a Mereway kitchen is likely to cost you about 30% more than the chains or trade only suppliers. This is similar to many of the other high quality brands sold by independent showrooms.
But not all. There are brands sold by the independents that sell for up to 40% less than this. That’s a kitchen of comparable quality to Mereway Kitchens for around what you’d pay for a kitchen from the one of the high street chains or trade only suppliers. To put this into context, for a good sized Mereway kitchen comprising say 25 units, a 40% saving on the units should equate to a saving of about £5,000.
Needless to say, these are few and far between, and only a small percentage of independent showrooms sell them. So how to you tracks them down among the countless showrooms out there?
Well, that’s where we come in. The many years I spent supplying showrooms all over the country gives me a unique insight into what brands they sell & how they compare in price. While Mereway are very good quality, I can recommend showrooms that will offer you a kitchen that’s just as good quality for much less money.
And that answers your wish of the highest quality kitchen at the lowest possible price.
