Buying a new kitchen is a major investment. That’s why it’s important to find a kitchen brand that offers a combination of quality and a reasonable price. So, how, for example, do Trend Kitchens stack up against the competition?
How do Trend Kitchens compare for quality?
The first places most people think of for buying a new kitchen are the big high street chains. After all, we’re always seeing their advertisements telling us how cheap they are. If we’re being a little more adventurous, we might ask a local builder to try the trade-only suppliers.
However, Trend Kitchens are much higher quality than any of these, meaning they last longer. For example, the chipboard they use to make their units is much denser than the chipboard that the chains & trade only suppliers use. This means they’ll never bow under the weight of the worktops like the units from the chains and trade suppliers will.
Another significant advantage is that they use thick PVC or ABS edging on their carcasses, giving protection against damage and water ingress. The chains & trade only suppliers, on the other hand, use cheap iron-on melamine edging, which offers the units very little protection.
Trend are one of many brands sold by specialist independent kitchen showrooms. In general, they’re much higher quality than what the chains and trade only suppliers sell. However, Trend Kitchens are very similar in quality to many other brands sold by independent kitchen showrooms.
How do they compare for price?
We’re used to the idea that higher quality costs more, and Trend Kitchens are no exception. Compared with the high street chains and trade suppliers, you’re likely to pay around 20% more for their units.
This might seem fair enough, but surprisingly it’s not the best deal you can get. While some of the brands independent kitchen showrooms sell cost more than Trend, some are cheaper. In fact, there are brands available that are comparable in quality to Trend Kitchens, but cost about 20% less. Also, being about 20% cheaper than Trend Kitchens means these ranges are similar in price to the chains & trade only suppliers.
The problem, needless to say, is knowing where to find them. There are vast numbers of showrooms up and down the country, and only a few offer these very good value ranges.
And that’s where I come in. I spent many years supplying independent kitchen showrooms, putting me in an ideal position to know what they offer. I’ll find a showroom convenient to you where you can buy a kitchen thats’s comparable in quality to a Trend Kitchen, but costs about 20% less.
