Kitchen door wrapping cost guide
by
Checkatrade

Whether you’re looking to transform the entire room or just your cupboards and drawers, these kitchen door wrapping costs will help you price up your project.

Door wrapping is an easy and cost-effective way to upgrade your kitchen without replacing all the units. On average, we open and close our kitchen cupboards and drawers at least six times a day, which is why they tend to be the first furnishings to suffer from obvious signs of wear and tear. When this happens, you might consider a quick upgrade or total refresh.

We spoke to the online estimators at My Build Estimate – a professional estimating company monitored by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Here are some estimated, average costs from them for kitchen door wrapping costs.

Types of kitchen door wraps

Kitchen door vinyl wrap costKitchen door wraps are predominantly made from vinyl. Not only is vinyl an economical choice, it’s a practical one.

This is because vinyl is a durable and versatile material. It keeps out moisture, is easy to clean, never needs repainting, and is scratch and chip resistant.

Vinyl wraps come in various finishes, such as:

  • High Gloss
  • Matte
  • Wood Effect
  • Patterned
  • Textured
  • Carbon Fibre
  • Metallic
  • Pearlescent
  • Glitter

The chosen coating is secured onto MDF doors, drawers and units to create the final aesthetic. They’re then re-installed and cleaned, ready for your enjoyment.

The full cost of kitchen door wrapping depends on the materials, chosen finish, number of units and the full area size. However, you can expect a single door to cost between £30 – £100. Labour on top will cost between £100 and £250 for the day.

This means that, on average, a full kitchen wrapping project can range from £1000 to £10,000. That’s why it’s worth shopping around for a few quotes before agreeing to a job.

Kitchen door vinyl wrapping service cost

Most kitchen wrapping projects will take around 1 – 3 days, which means you’ll probably pay the tradesperson’s day rate for this type of work. As previously mentioned, this can sit anywhere between £100 – £250 per day, so be sure to get at least 3 quotes before you agree to any work.

Yes. In fact, this is one of the most popular kitchen refurbishment options on the market. This is due to vinyl’s durability, longevity and ease of care.
