 B&Q kitchens review: units, costs, and installation B&Q sells a wide range of contemporary, shaker and traditional kitchens under its GoodHome brand.

There are nine different kitchens in B&Q's range, each of which comes in a choice of at least two colours. Some include integrated handles or a 'push-to-open' mechanism.

You can choose between gloss and matt finishes, some of which B&Q says 'don't reflect light, meaning fingerprints aren't as visible'.

It has designers to help you plan your kitchen and offers a fitting service. You can buy its fitted kitchens in-store or order them online.  

To help you decide whether a B&Q kitchen is right for your home, we sent its kitchen units to the lab to be assessed and asked 3,848 Which? members about their kitchens, including those from B&Q.

B&Q kitchens: installation

B&Q offers a kitchen fitting service, or you can buy from B&Q and hire a different installer, or fit it yourself. 

We asked people who used B&Q's kitchen fitters about the installation service. Plus our lab assembled B&Q's unit so we have some insight into how easy it is to fit them yourself. Log in or join Which? to access this.
