We spend a whopping £3 billion a year on kitchen furniture and equipment – not surprising, given that a kitchen re-fit can easily soak up £10,000.

With so much time and money invested into your kitchen, it is important to protect your new fixtures, fittings and equipment by ensuring they are covered within your home insurance policy. That said, we all want value for money, so here’s a look on how to squeeze maximum value from your spend when you remodel your kitchen.
