Just days after re-launching its handy click-and-collect service, Wilko has introduced another new service that is sure to leave customers happy - its first ever kitchen collection, featuring a selection of affordable designs you can install yourself.

In a move set to rival other homeware stores, like Ikea and B&Q, DIY store Wilko is now offering six different kitchen collection styles, all of which are fully customisable, and aim to help cost-conscious homeowners design and install their dream kitchen, without breaking the bank.

With the collection including everything from worktops and units, to lighting and splashbacks, the low-cost store hopes it will provide a quick, easy, and affordable way to upgrading the kitchen - with the entire collection now available to shop at wilko.com.

The starting prices for the Wilko kitchen units are £2,051 for the Matt Shaker style and up to £2,874 starting price for the J Pull Matt.

The kitchen collection also includes pre-inserted cams and dowels which removes the need to hire a fitter, while each cabinet uses 18mm melamine-faced chipboard to ensure "durability and longevity", reports The Sun.

Not only that but between now and May 25, Wilko is offering up to 15 per cent off its kitchen furniture, worktops, sinks, and taps. The move will rival big-name brands also known for kitchen collections, such as Ikea, B&Q and Wickes.

The new range comes as Wilko has been building out its DIY categories. Last month it saw the introduction of a tool and equipment hire service called wilkohire.

The retailer has also recently re-launched its free, click-and-collect service. It means shoppers can choose from over 30,000 products, and pick up their wilko.com orders from over 200 locations - including Plymouth's Armada Way Wilko, and all three The Range stores in the city.

Items ordered through the service will be available to collect with as little as two hours notice. Customers will be able to collect their shopping from the ever-growing number of reopened Wilko stores, and from over 200 collection points at The Range.

Having successfully completed concept store trials in Exeter, Plymouth, and Luton, Wilko has continued its store roll-out programme with recent launches in St Albans and Rotherham. More store openings are planned throughout the remainder of 2024.
