Top 5 reasons people are scared of changing a kitchen they don’t like

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s not just where we cook food, it’s also a hub for entertainment and socialising. So, given its value in our daily lives, why are some people scared of changing a kitchen they don’t like?

“Updating an outdated or undesirable design/style is the top issue addressed in kitchens by renovating homeowners”. UK Houzz Report 2017

1. It’s too expensive

A new kitchen can start at around £7,000[1]. And that’s before adding labour costs and all those little extras. So it’s no wonder that people can be put off.

But giving your outdated kitchen a new lease of life doesn’t have to come with a huge price tag. For example, wall tiles can be easily removed and replaced, usually with just a little skimming required. Likewise, kitchen doors can be replaced or repainted with minimum fuss or cost. In fact, in most cases, there are some simple, affordable steps you can take to make your kitchen look better (including upgrading to a show-stopping granite or quartz kitchen worktop).

Of course, you don’t want any nasty surprises! So make sure any kitchen suppliers offer clear, precise, and easy to read fixed-price quotes that break down exactly what’s included.

2.We are moving in the next few years and don’t want to spend the money as we won’t get it back

Wrong! A modern kitchen can add over £12,000 to the value of the average home; making it an investment rather than an expense. What’s more, if your kitchen is unappealing, buyers can be put off at the thought of having to upgrade themselves. Particularly as buying a new house is expensive enough as it is!

“72% of upgraded kitchens hadn’t previously been updated for over a decade”. UK Houzz Report 2017

3.I can never find tradespeople to do small jobs / they never call back to quote

Finding quality tradespeople can be frustrating. And the price difference between quotes can be even more confusing. Not only does our team hear this a lot from customers, but we’ve also experienced it ourselves! That’s why we offer a one-stop-shop when fitting granite or quartz worktops in your home; covering everything from joinery work to plumbing and gas, and even interior design. And we’ll project management everything for you, coordinating the various suppliers, so everything just happens.

4.I can’t face the disruption/mess to my home!

Sure, installing a whole new kitchen can be disruptive, and can take up to three weeks; leaving you without cooking facilities (and reliant on the bathroom to wash up!). What’s more, if you are using more than one company/installer to do the job, the time needed can creep up even further. But in the grand scheme of things, the results are almost always worth it!

However, a new kitchen worktop can be fitted in less than five working days; giving you an instant lift without the disruption! And, as far as the mess goes, we tidy up after ourselves, so you don’t have to!

5.I don’t know where to start?

Not everyone is a design expert. So it can be difficult to know how to match the colours of your worktops, doors, and flooring.

At Cheshire Granite Worktops we offer a free design consolation service which starts with a visit to our showroom in Knutsford. From there, we’ll guide you through the design options, with honest, down-to-earth advice. We spend time with you to get an understanding of the kitchen style you want to achieve and then advise on what will work best for your tastes and budget. We can also arrange to visit your home to give advice on how your new worktop will fit with our free at home measuring service.

Book your free design consultation today.

Helping you to choose wisely when making an investment in a granite or quartz kitchen worktop that will change the appearance of your kitchen, at Cheshire Granite Worktops we take care of the whole process for you.

With a small change going along way, if you would like to have a chat with us to find out how updating your worktops will add value to your kitchen and home, please do not hesitate to call us on 01565 300065 or email us at
