Standard kitchen prices typically range from €8,000 to €15,000.
Appliances can vary and can cost from €1,000 to €3,000, depending on the model and brand you choose.

What type of worktops do you supply?
We supply both laminate and solid wood worktops. We work with a reputable company to supply quartz and granite worktops.
Which is the best worktop?
Quartz would be the best worktop for durability and colour options and it is stain resistant.
Solid wood can be an attractive addition in the kitchen, however, it is not recommended in the food preparation area. Also, solid woods can be high maintenance.

No, our fitters do not carry out plumbing or electrical services, as these are specialist skills. However, Rattigan Kitchens can recommend both a reputable plumber and electrician to carry out this work for you.
