Making an old kitchen look nice and modern

Would like to do up the my 9ft by 9ft kitchen before I rent it out. I am on a very tight budget and would like to find out how much it would cost to put in new units, surfaces and to take out the old ones etc. Where is the best place to source units? thanks

  • B&Q, Wickes, Cheapestkitchensintheworld are a few names. I would estimate the cost at around £2000. I recently fitted my own kitchen and that is what it cost me. I took out gross limed oak units from the 80's style era, and I put in white gloss. It sold my house quickly as cheaper houses don't need expensive kitchens.

  • If you are on a really tight budget, can leave the units in place and just replace the doors and work surfaces? You should be able to do it all for hundreds rather than thousands.

  • For the rental market you only need do the minimum. You want things in good working order, but it isn't worth spending money on a new kitchen unless the current one is in beyond help. As above, spend a few hundred on a spruce up, rather than re-fit.
