There’s lots more expressions like that. ‘You only get what you pay for’, ‘The pleasure of a bargain never lasts as long as the regret’. The trouble is that all of these old expressions have been hard won and are as true today as they were eons ago.
Times are tough for a lot of people and so the temptation is to go to one of those cheap D-I-Y sheds or even one of those “Trade Counters” who purport to only sell to trade but in reality, will sell to anyone who walks through the door.
And, what about those companies with big advertising budgets and fancy showrooms? How much kitchen are you really buying? Once you take off the cost of advertising, the showroom overheads, staff wages, commissions, bonuses. How much is left for the kitchen itself?
If times are tough, you would be better off postponing your new kitchen until things improve to ensure that you kitchen is of good quality, is guaranteed and is well fitted.
GOD BLESS OUR LOVELY QUEEN AND MAY SHE REST IN PEACE
