If you’re after a new kitchen, you’ll be looking for a model combining the best quality with the lowest price. The problem is that there are so many brands to choose from and compare against one another. How, for example, do Optiplan Kitchens compare to other kitchen brands?
How do Optiplan Kitchens compare in quality to the chains and trade-only suppliers?
When searching for a new kitchen, many people start with the big high street chains. Alternatively, they may go through their local builder and use the trade-only suppliers.
Optiplan Kitchens are higher quality than these, meaning they should last longer. So, for example, the chains and trade-only suppliers construct their units from cheap, low-density chipboard. The problem with low density chipboard is it bows under the weight of the worktops. In contrast, Optiplan Kitchens use higher-density chipboard. High density chipboard will support the weight of the heaviest worktops & never bow.
Similarly, the chains and trade-only suppliers tend to edge their units with paper thin melamine edging. The problem with melamine edging is it offers little or no protection for the units. However, Optiplan Kitchens edge their units with thick ABS or PVC edging. ABS & PVC edging protects the delicate front edges from chips & damage and resists water ingress.
How do Optiplan Kitchens compare in price to the chains and trade-only suppliers?
Where the chains and trade-only suppliers do score over Optiplan is on price — Optiplan kitchens are more expensive. However, since they’ll last considerably longer, you won’t have to replace your kitchen so frequently.
How do Optiplan Kitchens compare to the kitchens sold by independent kitchen showrooms?
If you look instead at the many independent kitchen showrooms, you’ll find a wide range of kitchen brands available that vary in quality. So, some are higher quality than Optiplan, some similar quality & some lower quality.
The same applies to price too. So, some of these brands are more expensive than Optiplan, some similar in price & some cheaper. Of the ones that are cheaper than Optiplan, some are as much as 30% cheaper. Plus, in our opinion, some of these are just as good quality as Optiplan.
So, what does a 30% saving on the units equate to in pounds and pence? Well, if you went for a large kitchen with 25 units, a 30% saving on the units should translate into a saving of about £4,000 – £5,000.
How do you find these brands?
Unfortunately, it isn’t easy finding these brands. This is because there lots of brands sold by independent showrooms. So, identifying the best value ones could take a very long time.
