    Kitchen outfitters with a quick turnaround time? 9th Jul 18 at 6:34 AM
    Is there a way that we could have a kitchen delivered and fitted within three weeks? Or is that not remotely possible?

    Off shelf units , find a skilled carpenter to fit possibly

    But unlikely, it's summer holiday season

    Bah yeah I am probably dreaming...looks like I will be getting a kitchen fitted (and re tiled) after we move. I wanted to avoid the circus that will be managing three dogs at the same time

    Don't rush into this and make hasty decisions that you will regret later. Live in the house for a while.

    That would depend on how much plumbing and/or electrics is required along with plastering, tiling, flooring, and any remedial work needed once the old kitchen has been removed. There is the chance that damp problems are found behind the existing units or that the floor needs to be completely removed - All will take time.

    Three weeks from start to finish with the expectation of a quality job is probably asking too much - I'm assuming you are wanting to start the job now as apposed to six months time - The reputable fitters will have their order books full, and many of them will be wanting to take time out for a holiday.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.

    I fit kitchens for a living. I don't advertise. I am normally 3 -4 months ahead.
    The guys that are available now, by and large are the ones to avoid. Occasionally we'll get a cancellation and can do something short notice but very rare.


    Investment in a kitchen is something you want to do at your leisure. Not a forced decision. I've had kitchens where its taken 6 weeks just to get the design right.


    If you mess it up, you'll live with it for a long, long time.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.

    6 weeks? I always think about it for years before doing anything! It's lucky I don't have to make a living at it.
