Benchmarx kitchens review: units, costs, and installation

Before you invest in a Benchmarx kitchen, find out what its customers think of its fitted kitchens, and how they stood up to our lab assessments.

Benchmarx kitchens review: units, costs, and installation Benchmarx calls itself the kitchen and joinery specialist and sells more than 10 types of kitchen, including traditional and modern designs in a choice of colours and finishes.

Benchmarx only sells directly to tradespeople. But you can view its kitchens online or in-store and have a design consultation. Then you'll need to find an installer yourself.

Benchmarx says that working directly with traders means customers can get competitive trade prices. 

Set up in 2006, Benchmarx has around 140 branches across the country. 

We've surveyed thousands of kitchen owners about their kitchens and assessed Benchmarx's kitchens in our lab to help you decide whether a Benchmarx kitchen is best for your home.

Benchmarx kitchens: installation

Benchmarx is a trade supplier and doesn't have its own installers. So we don't have customer ratings for Benchmarx's kitchen installation. You'll need to choose your own kitchen fitter if you buy from Benchmarx.

Use our Which? Trusted Trader search tool to find reliable kitchen fitters near you. 

If you're keen to buy from a company that will also install your kitchen, see if other kitchen brands, including Wickes and Wren Kitchens, were rated among the Best kitchen fitters: which brand provides the best kitchen installation?.

Benchmarx kitchens and services

Does Benchmarx have a kitchen planner/design service?

There's a free design service with online or in-store appointments. A kitchen designer will create a 3D plan of your kitchen, discuss different options and talk you through the process.

Benchmarx will also carry out an in-home survey to check the measurements for your kitchen, if you are comfortable with this.  

Does Benchmarx install kitchens?

As Benchmarx is a trade kitchen supplier and doesn't recommend installers, you will need to find one yourself, although Benchmarx can guide you through the process. Find kitchen fitters using our free Which? Trusted Traders service.

Does Benchmarx sell kitchen appliances, flooring and tiles?

Yes. It sells large kitchen appliances from a range of brands, and specialist kitchen flooring, all fitted at extra cost. Visit our home appliances page to find the best kitchen appliances for you. Benchmarx doesn't supply floor or wall tiles.
