House Renovation

We are considering buying a house which will need renovation in the Zuerich area and I have a couple of questions:

1. Does anyone know of a UK kitchen company who will supply and fit in Zuerich?
2. Failing that, any suggestions of Swiss kitchen companies who offer more traditional style kitchens rather than the ultra modern ones?

Finally, any recommendations of electricians, plumbers, general builders etc preferably with some English gratefully received!

Thanks.

Search the forum and read the thread re. the chap who recently brought his new UK cooker to Switzerland to install and how he couldn't get it to work, then you may want to reconsider this request.

Re: House Renovation

Take a drive along the border on the German side around Waldshut- there are plenty of kitchen suppliers offering much more variety and they cost half as much.

Re: House Renovation

Why not ask Ikea or Fust?...they are really active in the market. You might show them a photo of what you want, let them tell you where to get it.

If you are planning to stay in the house 10+ years, build any kitchen you want, but if you are here for 5 years and will sell your house, you might consider "who" will find your traditional UK(?) kitchen attractive. I can imagine a new kitchen will run 50 to 150K?
