Kitchen wrap vs Reface vs New Kitchen

If you’re looking at ways to renovate your kitchen then you have most likely come across these 3 options.

So, how much will these options be?

New kitchen

On average a new kitchen can be £8000+ this is before you take the cost of removing the old kitchen, removing tiles/wallpaper and plastering walls etc.

If this is still for you then we recommend checking out blog post “How much are new kitchens?” they go into much more detail on what’s involved and costings.

Reface Kitchen

A reface kitchen is when we replace your old doors with new doors keeping the cabinets. This can cost between £35 – £45 per minus fitting charge. The hardest part about this will be choosing a style of door to match your existing kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen wrapping

Kitchen wrapping by far is the most cost-effective way to update your kitchen with an average size kitchen wrap coming in at under £1000 with fitting.
