I’m Steve Root and thank you for the clicking on the google advert for my small business Roots Kitchens Bedrooms Bathrooms.

I’ll guess you’re looking to find out how much a kitchen will cost if you need to knock down a wall? We regularly do this so here’s a quick crib sheet to help.

Cost of a regular kitchen

Now it would be easy to say “it depends” here, but as we design, supply and fit Kitchens Bedrooms and Bathrooms every week in East Kent I can say confidently the total cost of a kitchen, including furniture, worktops, appliances, floor and all installation (removing the old kitchen, plastering, electrics, plumbing, carpentry and decorating) are regularly between:

£25,000 – £60,000

That’s a wide range but if you visit our showroom you can what that difference in cost means to your room, for example the tap can vary from £200 (simple) to £3,000 (boiling water + chilled sparking water).

The cost of removing a wall

Now if you need to take down a wall the cost varies depending on it’s construction and if it’s load bearing (does it hold the rest of your house up).

adds £1,200 – £12,000

Removing a simple stud partition wall that’s not load bearing adds around £2,000 to the cost. If this sounds low, remember that we’ve already covered plastering and other work as part of the kitchen at this point.

A brick built load bearing wall will need steel supports and structural engineers calculations. We arrange all of this and the more complicated rooms have cost up to £12,000 to remove.

In summary, the cost of a kitchen including removing a wall is typically £26,200 – £72,000 but it depends a great deal on what you need and the products you choose.

Perhaps best of all

We’re a small business. There are no sales, no finance offers and no fancy marketing. If we have the right products and service for you (and I hope we do) then I’d like you to know that we’re here to help with the products we’ve supplied throughout their working life. Here’s an example of helping a customer with an oven door that inspired a youtube video that has now helped over 100,000 people. At Roots we work really hard to make your room perfect.
