If you've wanted to take advantage of the B&Q kitchen planning service but were interrupted by Covid-19, there's some pretty good news: B&Q are resuming in-person kitchen planning appointments, with safety measures in place.
From this week, selected B&Q stores will once again accept customers who are planning a bespoke kitchen; appointments will include a 3D planning service using B&Q's room visualiser software, a quote giving you a full price breakdown of the different components for the job, and a chance to apply for finance if you choose to go ahead with the project.
Strict social distancing and hygiene rules have been implemented to make the process as safe as possible, with all staff members asked to wear masks. There is one other crucial change to how appointments are conducted: you will be asked to submit all measurements and plans via email ahead of the appointment, rather than bringing paper plans with you. This will help avoid unnecessary contact, while giving you the same level of personalised service as before.
You can book a free planning appointment online via the B&Q website.
Not sure if B&Q have the kitchen you want? You can play around with their kitchen visualiser without needing to book an appointment. Alternatively, take a look at the fitted kitchens service from John Lewis.
