Having my kitchen redone was likely the most stressful thing I've had to do in quite some time. I could hardly think about having a non-functioning kitchen for a few days with work to get to, and children to take care of. When the same cabinet door came off of its hinges for the third time in one week, I figured I should probably do something. That's when I first began looking up kitchen fitters in Hastings.
It took me ages to find out exactly what it was I wanted to do with my kitchen. From deciding on the cabinet designs I could install, to how best to display them so I can get the most of my small space, there was a lot to figure out. Not to mention figuring out which finishes would work in my small space!
My kitchen is really small, and I didn't know how much thought would have to be put into how it would be renovated. Of course, I wanted something that would give me as much open space as possible, but I also had to consider my appliances would be replaced. Needless to say, there were thousands of different thoughts going on in my mind, and none of them were productive.
So, I searched "Kitchen Fitters Hastings", to find inspiration in the work of fitters in my area, and noted the companies with the designs I really liked. Mostly, it just made me realise how desperately I needed a bigger kitchen, but that's something I'll have to deal with another time.
It only took a few calls and visits for me to become an expert at weeding out quality kitchen fitters. I was amazed at the amount of people who showed up at my home looking confused, or who were unable to give me a quote based on my kitchen size, and design ideas!
There was some good to come out of this whole ordeal, though. Between all of the bad were a few rays of sunshine, with people who were attentive, took the time to listen to my concerns and expectations, and gave me great advice. Once I had the chance to deal with these types of people, the process was less draining, and the only bit of stress I had was from my indecisiveness.
If you're in the position of remodelling your kitchen it's a good idea to have an idea about what you want, but the right kitchen fitter will be patient in the decision making process. Go with your gut if you find one that seems to understand your vision, is within your budget, and you'll have a kitchen that looks and functions amazingly.
Using an established kitchen fitter can get you the kitchen you need, with the service you deserve. As a self diagnosed worry wart, finding a proper kitchen fitter was the best thing I've done. What used to be nervous anxiety ended up being pure excitement at a job well done.
