I'd be really interested to know too. I went to Ikea to see the new kitchens and they are disappointingly 'veneery'. I adore the JL ones.

I've never heard of Mereway - there is a showroom really near us so I will go and do some investigating

I haven't had an official quote, but did speak to one of their advisors about 3 weeks ago. If you are able to go to JL, depending on the branch, they have kitchen examples and a rough price estimate for a standard number of cabinets shown. The chap in there said it would be about �11k for what I wanted, which was basically a fairly long row of units for a galley kitchen. IIRC that didn't include appliances or worktop.

You should be able to download a catalogue and price list here:

JL continental range is a mereway kitchen which is available from many independents.

You will be able to get a much better German product for similar or less money than anything from Mereway. IMO Mereway is at best a mediocre product.

I agree with kmdesign based on my experience.

I had a kitchen priced up by JLP, don't remember the range but mid priced. No quartz or anything fancy.

Bought a German kitchen, Hacker Systemat, instead and quartz worktops and top of the range Siemens appliances from an independent for +£3k over the JLP bog standard one.

So my advice is don't be put off by swanky looking independent showrooms, give them a go. You might be surprised as I was. In fact I couldn't even find my appliances cheaper online.

We were quoted £26k from JL. A Pronorm German kitchen from a local independent came in about £10k less - including granite.

Thanks for your inputs.

Give the German brands a go. They offer fabulous quality at very competitive prices.

Pistachio I went to JL this morning and she gave me a cost comparison leaflet. Their classic collection range is stunning.

Can anyone recommend a good independent in London who would stock a shaker style german kitchen?
