Homebase kitchens review: units, costs, and installation

Homebase says its kitchens offer the best styles and brands for the best prices. Find out what customers think of their Homebase kitchens and how well built they are.

Homebase customers can choose from 19 different kitchens, including modern, traditional, handleless and shaker kitchens. 

There are eight kitchens in the Homebase-branded range, which come flat-pack. Finishes include wood and gloss and a range of colours. It is also selling contemporary House Beautiful kitchens and farmhouse-style Country Living kitchens, which both come ready to install.

In some Homebase stores you can also buy Küchenmöbel kitchens – a European kitchen brand.

Homebase has a price-match guarantee, which it says means it's never beaten on value.

To help you decide whether to buy your kitchen from Homebase, we assessed its units in our lab and asked more than 3,000 Which? members about their kitchens, including those from Homebase.

Homebase kitchens: installation

Homebase doesn't have its own installers so we don't have customer ratings for its kitchen installation.

You'll need to find your own kitchen fitter or install your kitchen yourself. Homebase partners with a home installation firm, Homeprojects, to fit some of its kitchens. We'd recommend you use Which? Trusted Traders to find a reliable kitchen fitter near you. 

We assembled Homebase's kitchens in our lab, so if you're planning to install your own kitchen, log in or join Which? to see our thoughts on how easy it is to fit yourself.

Homebase kitchen services

Does Homebase have a kitchen planner/design service? 

There's a free design service in many Homebase stores, for which you'll need to book an appointment. Social distancing measures are in place.

Virtual design appointments are available instead if you would prefer, or if your local store isn't offering in-store appointments. 

Homebase's kitchen designers will create a 3D plan of your kitchen and discuss your preferences and styles.

There's also a kitchen visualiser tool on its website so you can get a feel for different styles and combinations of cupboards and worktops.

Does Homebase install kitchens?

Homebase doesn't employ kitchen fitters but partners with home installation firm Homeprojects to fit some of its kitchens.

Otherwise you'll need to find your own kitchen fitter. Use Which? Trusted Traders to find a reliable kitchen fitter near you. 

Does Homebase sell kitchen appliances, flooring and tiles?

It sells large kitchen appliances from a range of brands, and kitchen flooring and wall tiles. Visit our home appliances page to find the best appliances for you.
