Just how much does a new kitchen cost on average to buy and install? This is usually one of the first thoughts to run through the heads of homeowners considering investing in a new culinary space — after all, there is no point designing a kitchen and heading off towards the showrooms, design in hand, with no idea of how much you'll actually need to achieve the space you have been dreaming of. 

Although choosing a new kitchen really is one of the best bits of any self build, renovation or extension, you need to be realistic if you don't want to end up disappointed or with a half-finished kitchen.
