Q4, Do handles come with the doors and drawers?
A4. No, handles have to be bought separately. However, if you would like to purchase the handle that’s featured with your chosen door in the corresponding photography, then the relevant product code is featured in the product contents section that accompanies it.
Q1. What finishing touches do I need to consider?
A1. Once you have bought your cabinets, doors, drawers, worktops and handles you need to consider whether you also require any panels, plinths and cornices. We also stock wirework for storage solutions, lighting and other kitchen accessories. These additions can give your kitchen the ‘wow’-factor’, as well as making your space more practical.
Q2. What are panels used for?
A2. These are used to finish off exposed cabinet ends or fill a gap where cabinets don’t fit. They can also be used to create cavities too – such as an area to house a fridge or a dishwasher.
Q3. What are plinths used for?
A3. Plinths fit to the bottom outer-edge of your base cabinets for the perfect finishing touch.
Q4, What are cornices/pelmets used for?
A4. For a seamless finish, fix cornices or pelmets to the outer edge on the bottom/top of your wall cabinets.
Q2. How can I update my kitchen on a budget?
A2. If your budget won’t stretch as far as an entirely new kitchen – don’t forget that new doors and handles can transform an old kitchen and bring it bang up-to-date at a fraction of the full kitchen cost.
Q3. How do I measure up for my kitchen?
A3. First of all map out your current kitchen layout (or empty kitchen if you plan to start from scratch) on graph paper recording your measurements in mms. Add the overall wall lengths of each wall and the ceiling height for the wall elevations. Then highlight the precise positioning of fixed items such as windows, doors and chimneybreasts (if applicable) and highlight where the radiators, electric sockets, gas supply points and plumbing are.
Q4. How do I order my chosen kitchen?
A4. Ordering your new kitchen from Screwfix couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is follow the following three simple steps:
Step 1 – Order your cabinets
Step 2 – Order your doors and drawers
Step 3 – Order your finishing touches and accessories
