Kitchen Compare has been tracking and comparing the prices, quality, installation services and finance deals on like-for-like kitchens across all the major British retailers throughout the year. And based on its findings, you’ll get a better deal at B&Q than you would at rivals Ikea, Homebase and Magnet.

Other brands taken into account include big names like John Lewis & Partners, Wren and Wickes. Yet B&Q still comes out on top.

Kitchen Compare looks at a mix of contemporary, Shaker and traditional kitchens, and examines prices for galley, L-shaped and U-shaped layouts. In total, it’s monitoring more than 160 kitchens, and identifying the best buys over all styles.
