Replacement kitchen door sales skyrocket as recession hit home-owners look for easy and inexpensive DIY projects Over recent months sales of DIY products have remained strong whilst sales of more expensive home improvement products such as expensive fitted kitchens and designer bathrooms have seen a dramatic slowdown. This was highlighted by the recent announcement by bathroom manufacturer Ideal Standard with announced it was planning to close some of its factories with the loss of 560 jobs. "We've seen a massive increase in the number of people looking to replace their kitchen doors, rather than buying a whole new kitchen" said Robert Clark, MD of replacement kitchen door specialists Kitchen Door Workshop Limited. "Enquiries for fitted kitchens, which typically cost in the region of £5,000 - £10,000 have literally nose dived since last autumn as home-owners switched to cheaper alternatives and especially DIY replacement kitchen doors which typically cost £300-£400" "We've seen our online sales of replacement kitchen doors double on what they were 12 months ago" said Robert Clark. "people are thinking twice before spending on 'large ticket' items and seem very keen to tackle more jobs themselves rather than paying other people to do the work for them" "As a result of the increase in enquiries from DIY'ers we've added a whole collection of videos to our website www.kitchendoorworkshop.co.uk which show you, step by step, just how easy it is to replace your own kitchen doors" "It's hardly rocket science" said Robert Clark "with a few basic tools, even a novice DIY'er can give their kitchen a total makeover in just a day or so and save themselves thousands of pounds at the same time" You can see the complete range of kitchen door styles and colours online at www.KitchenDoorWorkshop.co.uk where you can also; - Get Free colour samples - Download Kitchen and Bedroom Door Brochures - Find video guides on how to measure and fit replacement kitchen doors - Get handy kitchen door care and maintenance tips - Get an online quote in minutes To find out more, visit www.kitchendoorworkshop.co.uk, or e-mail sales at [email protected].
