Re-use appliances

Kitchen appliances are often the most costly elements of designing a new kitchen. If your old ones are in good shape, consider re-installing them in the new design, or only replacing the ones that are on display, such as the hob.

If you do need to buy appliances, make sure you scour the internet and the high street for the best bargains. It’s often cheaper to source the appliances yourself, rather than let the kitchen design company do it for you.

And if you are buying new appliances, make sure you invest in energy-efficient models that will save you money on running costs in the future. The Energy Saving Trust has a full list of appliances and their energy ratings to help you choose.
