Hi, just purchased house, don't like the kitchen, Which is a waste as its brand new.

I don't like the cupboards, but do like the worktop and Tiles.
How easy is it to change the cupboards but not worktop?

Replacing the doors and drawer fronts would be an easy job.

Just check measurements carefully as sizes can vary.

Sorry meant to say sizes vary between brands

Can I suggest that when you change the doors, you sell the 'old' ones on ebay or gumtree, if they are still quite new you will probably make a good amount back on them.

Thats fine, the kitchen is currently a light brown veneer and i wanted a ligh grey shaker style, but the problem is the bottom panels and side panels so what would you do with them?

Thanks for advice so far and yeah to sell on Ebay is great idea!

Agree with KnockMeDown. If you google second hand kitchens you can see that there are places where you can sell your kitchen. If it's brand new, you might be able to get a decent price for it. It's not just ebay.

Bottom panels are called plimths. Side panels are called ... Side panels.

You can paint panels to match (you could even get doors which are primed ready for painting so you paint everything and it all matches). Or just buy new ones when you buy the doors.

(Sorry, misread and thought you were asking what panels were called confused. But you weren't! Didn't mean to tell you what to call things.)
