Hi,

We are getting a kitchen ordered very soon.

Please can you let me know what are your experiences and recommendations for a kitchen company that lasts longest in terms of quality of parts and materials etc.... I would like a long lasting kitchen, not just something that looks good for a few years.

Thanks in advance.

Mostly they are much of a muchness.. the likes of wickes/B & Q tend to be the bottom end of the market.. Wren/Magnet slightly better

Regardless of the quality of the cabinets doors.. more important is the quality of the fitter/s.

The most expensive cabinets badly fitted will last less time than a cheap kitchen fitted well......

We had our kitchen fitted as part of a extension and we bought ours from;http://www.diy-kitchens.com/ and were very pleased with the result.
As others have said it is all down to getting good kitchen fitters but choosing the right finish for your cabinets is just as important. We chose a painted finish for our kitchen as the last one lasted 20 years!,
Personally I would not choose a gloss finish cabinet as many people I know have had the finish delaminate from the surface of the doors.

Mike
