Independent comparison website Kitchen Compare has just shared its annual analysis of the DIY kitchen market. And we can reveal that B&Q is officially the Lowest Priced National DIY Retailer of Kitchens, for the third year running!

Not only is it the cheapest place to buy a new kitchen – the furniture you'll be getting is the best value for money, too.

Kitchen Compare has been tracking and comparing the prices, quality, installation services and finance deals on like-for-like kitchens across all 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.

‘It’s our mission to make it as easy and transparent as possible for shoppers to purchase their dream kitchen,’ explains Steve Collinge, Managing Director at Kitchen Compare.

‘Every day we monitor the activity of the UK’s leading kitchen retailers, including tracking the individual component prices of comparable kitchen styles. As a result, we have the most robust possible data which allows us to confirm with certainty that B&Q are consistently outperforming competitors, including Homebase, and Wickes, to offer the lowest priced kitchens.’

‘We’re thrilled to be independently recognised for offering customers the best value kitchens for the third year in a row,’ says Iain McColgan, Director of Showrooms at B&Q. ‘The news follows the recent launch of a new range of GoodHome kitchens – the first for over 10 years.’

Good work B&Q!
