B&Q kitchen installation
We weren't able to rate B&Q's kitchen installation, as not enough people in our survey had their kitchen installed by B&Q - 25% of people who bought a B&Q kitchen fitted it themselves, while only 9% of people overall fitted their own kitchen.
See how other kitchen brands, including Homebase and Wickes, were rated for installation by visiting our kitchen installation page.
