Hello

We live in a 1 bedroom flat which we love, expecting our first baby in October and aware we will have to move in the future, just looking at different options for now,

We are currently having new windows installed And in the next 2/3 months will be having a new kitchen put in, we already have the kitchen purchased and it's currently in boxes in our lounge

we are now thinking of getting a quote to move the kitchen into the back of the lounge and making the old kitchen a bedroom, we know it's possible as lots of flats similar to ours have already done this

Just wondered how much roughly it will cost? Lots of pulling up floorboards etc,


The lounge is at the front of flat then it's a hallway/ bedroom, small set of stairs, hallway then bathroom and kitchen at back,

Trying to upload pic of floor plan but it won't let me

Thanks

Hi, and :welcomeuhm:

You have already given your self the answer :wink:

Why not ask them? :scratch: since They have done what you propose, They have the same layout as you have, They live in the same part of the country as you do, (They live in the same block of flats too :lol: ) They will have had the problems you may encounter, They have more experience than us. :salute:

Also if a forum member (on any forum you ask on) said it will be £x and when the job is done you are told it £X + Y you can't really say "A person I do not know, that has no idea what is actually involved said it will only be £x"

Hence my suggestion of "ask those near you how they got on / how much" :thumbleft:

Drains would be a major problem , unless you have a connection point at the front of the property.

As the others have said, there are too many variables to give a reasonable estimate. It'd really need a site visit as it depends on the location of the drains, the current location of the boiler and whether it will need to be moved, possibly moving radiators, the desired layout of the kitchen (for some people, a "kitchen" is a sink a washing machine, a cooker and 3 or 4 double sockets -- for others, it might include plinth lighting, an island unit, under-cupboard lighting, W/M, dishwasher, tumble drier, double elecric oven, gas hob, plumbed-in fridge/freezer, instant water boiler, ceiling spotlights, etc)

As a very rough "finger in the air" price... I was involved in a fairly standard-ish one recently, moving the kitchen from the very front of the house to the back, digging up a concrete floor to lay drainage, plumbed-in american-style fridge and the usual appliances. I was told the customer was paying £35K for it (including the units, appliances and tiling and decorating). It did look bloody great when it was done (especially the pipework, obviously :lol:)

I did this - have a look at this thread: advice-needed-in-moving-a-kitchen-t84102.html

I installed a simple modular ikea kitchen:

Allowing me to convert the old kitchen into a second bedroom:

All in it cost about £1,000 but I did most of the work myself (just paid an electrician to move a few sockets). Price will depend on where your waste pipes and water feeds are. If its a flat don't forget to get permission from the freeholder.
