The kitchen is the undisputed heart of the home, a space that serves as a hub for creativity, experimentation, gatherings, and everyday moments.

First things first, what does a fitted kitchen include?
Our kitchen specialists will work alongside you to install the kitchen you’ve been dreaming of. We have long-standing partnerships with Wren Kitchens and Howdens who can supply your kitchen if required. This means that all the materials and products used for your fitted kitchen will be of the highest possible standards. Alternatively, if you have already sourced your kitchen, call on us to install it! But if you’re wondering what a fitted kitchen includes, here’s everything you can include in your brand new, bespoke kitchen…
- Layout & Style
A brand-new fitted kitchen is much more than upgrading your cabinets and white goods. Renovating your kitchen means that you can assess the layout and style to design a space that best works for you and your family. The specific dimensions and layout of your space are tailored to your bespoke requirements, so whether you need a child-friendly kitchen or enjoy dining with friends, everything is unique to you.
- Worktops, Cabinets & Cupboards
Fitted kitchens feature bespoke worktops, cabinets and cupboards that are tailored to fit the available space and boost storage. Whether you need tons of storage or more worktop space, a fitted kitchen delivers all options. We have long-standing partnerships with Wren Kitchens and Howdens which means that you can choose from an extensive range of worktop, cabinet and cupboard options for your bespoke fitted kitchen.
Fitted kitchens often include appliances that can either be built-in or integrated to achieve a seamless and cohesive look. Such appliances may include a refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher. If you want to add sophistication and convenience to your fitted kitchen, you may also choose to include a wine cooler or steam oven in your new bespoke kitchen.
- Plumbing, Electrics, Gas & Waste
Your new kitchen wouldn’t be complete without full plumbing, electric, gas and waste installations. These key features of a new kitchen installation ensure that your space is equipped with running water, electrical power, a gas supply for cooking appliances, and proper waste disposal. Professional installation of plumbing, electrics, gas, and waste systems is vital to ensure safety, functionality, and compliance with building codes and regulations.
- Painting, Decorating & Flooring
Aside from the layout and style, painting, decorating and flooring are key to putting your stamp on your new kitchen. Whether you need easy-wipe tiling to clean up messy spills, want to make a statement with a colourful splashback or like the rustic look of wood flooring, the way you finish your kitchen is as important as the layout you choose. Make your kitchen your own with painting, decorating and flooring options.
These are just a few common features in a fitted kitchen. The exact features will vary depending on individual preference, budget and space constraints. As your professional kitchen designer, we at Lexon Building Services can help you create a tailored and functional kitchen that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.
What are the benefits of a new kitchen?
Investing in a new kitchen welcomes myriad benefits to your home and life. Here are some of the many advantages we’ve seen our clients enjoy by installing a brand-new fitted kitchen…
- Increases Property Value
Did you know that a brand-new fitted kitchen could add as much as 15% to the value of your property? Feedback shows that kitchens are one of the most important homes for potential buyers, so a well-designed kitchen is a major selling point for many homebuyers. What’s more, renovating your kitchen yields a high return on investment, so when you sell your property you will recoup a large portion of your renovation costs. Whether you’re selling soon or may do so in the future, a new kitchen is a smart investment to make.
- Enhanced Function & Performance
Upgrading your kitchen to higher specifications equals elevated performance. A new kitchen provides you with the opportunity to reimagine the layout, storage and appliances within your kitchen. This means you can upgrade these features to work for your lifestyle and property, facilitating productivity and simplifying those everyday tasks. What’s more, by incorporating innovative storage solutions, and installing energy-efficient appliances, you can make cooking, cleaning, and more enjoyable and efficient.
- Energy Efficiency
A new kitchen brings the chance to upgrade your appliances to more energy-efficient options. By updating to modern appliances, energy-efficient lighting, and more, a new kitchen can help homeowners reduce their energy consumption and lower utility bills. What’s more, with environmental sustainability at the forefront of how our homes run, investing in a more energy-efficient kitchen not only enhances comfort and functionality but also contributes to a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.
- Improved Aesthetics
New kitchens are available in an extensive choice of styles, colours, finishes and configurations, all of which go a long way in improving the overall appeal of a kitchen. You can design and implement a kitchen that is tailored around your style and design preferences, meaning that you can replace outdated cabinets, upgrade worn worktops and refresh the aesthetics of your space. With these updates, you can breathe stylish aesthetics and new life into your kitchen.
- Make It Work For You
Whether you value entertainment and dining or comfort and safety, a new kitchen lets you decide how your kitchen works for you. From implementing smart storage solutions to make your life run more smoothly to creating contemporary dining spaces to socialise with friends and family, you get to decide how your kitchen functions. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or enjoying breakfast with your family, a well-designed kitchen creates the perfect backdrop for memorable moments.
- Pride & Satisfaction
Ultimately, a new kitchen brings with it a sense of personal satisfaction and pride, creating a space that you’ll be proud to call a part of your home. A well-appointed kitchen that has been custom-made to your requirements will enhance your life and reflect your tastes, personality, and lifestyle.
