These are just guide prices based on a selection of kitchen units - the price would change depending on the size of your kitchen, materials used and labour costs. Please be aware that the guide prices for Homebase are based on a half price offer if you bought eight units or more (running in February 2015 when we published). If this offer wasn't in place, Homebase prices above would be double.

Prices correct as of February 2015 and are based on the cost for a sink and base unit, two base units with a drawer and shelf, a base unit with four drawers each, two wall units with a door and two shelves each, a housing unit for an oven, all including handles, hinges and fixings, and a 40mm worktop. All sizes varied as prices were based on each brand’s standard sizes and ranges. Top, mid-range and lower-price kitchens in the gallery above were selected by Homebase.
