If you’re looking for a new kitchen, you’re likely to want to get the best balance of price and quality. The trouble is, there are so many kitchen brands available that comparison can be difficult. So, how do Symphony Kitchens compare in price & quality to all the other brands & is it possible to get a better kitchen for your money?
How do Symphony Kitchens compare in price?
The most obvious comparison to make in price is with the big high street chains and trade only suppliers. These generally sell on the strength of low price. However, Symphony Kitchens compare fairly well to them and sell for very similar prices.
How do Symphony Kitchens compare in quality?
In terms of quality, Symphony Kitchens are a little better than what you’ll find in the high street chains and trade only suppliers. So, for example, the chipboard used to construct a Symphony Kitchen will be better quality than the chipboard used by the chains & trade only suppliers. This means, their cabinets will be more durable & will last longer. The doors they use will also tend to be higher quality than those used by the chains & trade only suppliers.
However, they’re by no means the best you can get for the price. Their are a number of kitchen brands sold by independent kitchen showrooms that cost similar to Symphony, but are higher quality & will last much longer. Some of these are even luxury German kitchen brands. The problem is that there are hundreds of kitchen brands and hundreds of different showrooms, so where do you start looking? That’s where we come in. We’ll recommend the nearest showrooms that offer these brands.
How do Symphony Kitchens compare in specifications?
Symphony Kitchens have use a cam and dowel assembley system. This is the type you’ll find on all flat-pack kitchens. The only difference between a Symphony kitchen & a flat pack kitchen is that a Symphony kitchen is assembled in the factory where as a flat pack kitchen is asembled on site. In contrast. The brands I mentioned earlier sold that cost similar to Symphony, but are higher quality, are also much higher specification than Symphony. So, instead of using a cam & dowel assembley system, they use a glue & dowel system. This is the type you’ll find on proper rigid kitchens.
A glue & dowel system has two major advantages over a cam & dowel system. firstly, you don’t see the exposed metal cams on the underside of the wall units which can look unsightly. Secondly, a glue & dowel kitchen doesn’t have all the holes in the inner sides of the units that you’ll find on a cam & dowel kitchen. Again, all these holes can look unsightly.
In summary, Symphony Kitchens represent reasonable value for money & are certainly better than what you’ll get from the high street chains or trade only suppliers. However, if you know the right showrooms to visit, it’s possible to get a kitchen that costs similar to a Symphony Kitchen, but is much higher quality & will last longer.
