Another factor that has an effect on the price is the sheer volume of material you will need to complete the job. From the three most popular kitchen shape layouts, the 'C' Shape kitchen will on balance be the most expensive.

This is because it will generally need more jointing, more upstands and cover more area in a room the same size but only requiring an 'L' shape.

There are four main shapes of kitchen as follows:

The 'I' Shape

This shape is generally referred to as the 'I' shape because it has work surface along one wall only.

The 'C' Shape

This shape is generally referred to as the 'C' shape because it has work surface along three walls thereby creating an angular but 'C' shaped room. All sides don't necessarily need to be equal lengths.

The 'L' Shape

This shape is generally referred to as the 'L' shape because it has work surface along two adjoining walls..

The 'P' Shape

This shape is generally referred to as the 'P' shape because it has work surface along at least one wall and has a Peninsular section that requires finishing on three sides and not just two as in an 'L' shaped layout.

The 'G' Shape

This shape is generally referred to as the 'G' shape because it has work surface along at least two walls but has other sections that continue at right angles creating a large G shaped area. 

The 'II' Shape

The double 'I' or 'II' shape is often found in a Galley kitchen, when there are parallel work surfaces along two walls.

So how do we calculate the cost..?

The easiest way to calculate the cost is to request a visit from an experienced worktop surveyor. This service is generally free to private home-owners but the insight help and advice would be invaluable.

Trying to guess without first selecting the right material of having the correct sizes is a little like asking the length of string?

There are also all the hidden costs that most people will only tell you about once you have committed to them, and possibly paid a deposit that will now be at risk!

You need to think about the implications of: A new sink, will it be inset or under-mount? Will it be single, double or triple bowled? Will it be stainless steel or can I fit a ceramic sink into quartz worktops?

And it doesn't stop there...invariably you may need a new hob top or at the very least re-fit your existing one. The cost will vary greatly between gas and electricity. 

You may also need to consider what may happen to the tiling or other wall covering that you have. Will tiles get damaged? will plaster be affected?

The list goes on..
