complete kitchen refit help needed

Postby watsahammer » Tue Nov 29, 2011 11:41 pm

firstly apologies if this is in the wrong forum - if so please tell me and i will repost.

Ok, so I intend on undertaking a full kitchen replacement in the new year ---- where do I start??

I need everything replacing from the floor (currently laminate - which goes under the units --god only knows what horros are beneath it!) - to sockets being moved and added, plumbing replaced, radiators moved and pipes being chased into walls (therefore walls being plastered!)

I had a quote in june for £2950 (inc was removing old kitchen, removing coving, plastering walls and ceiling, reloacting electrical points, fit new kitchen, lay 16sq mtrs of floor tiles)
Since then the design has changed slightly - will probably replace the floor with laminate not tiles but will also need extra electrical sockets and some extra units to be fitted

So - where do I start - ceiling? electrical points - rip out kitchen?
Thanks for any help!!
