We're planning a new kitchen and this involves creating a utility room from scratch. The kitchen will be quite large and we are planning on using an independent kitchen designer/installer for this, but we aren't sure what to do about the utility room. Our kitchen budget is about £25,000 max (including new appliances), but we don't want to spend much on the utility, so my question is, is it acceptable to go to somewhere like Homebase/B&Q/Wickes for this? The utility will be approx 2.3m x 4m and I was thinking of saving money with laminate worktops instead of quartz etc. and using cheaper units. Obviously the styles won't match exactly, so is this a mistake and should we use the kitchen people to do the utility too? Thanks.
