So the likelihood is that you haven’t got a clue where to begin or even how to initiate the all-important design phase of your new kitchen, so firstly you will want to follow the next point to find yourself a decent kitchen renovation company or interior designer to help you through this part of the process.

Reputation

A tradesman is only as trustworthy as the rating that the last clients they served give them and in many different kinds of construction work this remains true. And with the advent of the internet and online directories’ easy to find who the previous clients of a contractor were and what these past customers and clients are saying about them, their craft and skill and also their professionalism in how they do business. And obviously someone who had a bad experience with an individual firm will be very motivated to let others know about exactly why they were disappointed and let down by their work, the severity of the problems and whether they think people should avoid them this is so important that various contractors over the years have even been completely shamed out of their industry in their local area due to repeated bad reviews from unhappy customers.

So it’s down to you to be sure, before agreeing to any work or accepting any form of written quotation that you take enough time to take a look at the contractor’s previous reputation when it comes to this a particular kind of work. Their reputation should always run parallel to what to your expectation of the work is and proceed from there. They may “past clients” who you can call to confirm their good work, however you can only trust these so far as in reality anybody could be on the other end of that receiver and you have little way of confirming the authenticity of these reviews.
