How much does a kitchen renovation cost?
This is one of the most common questions we get asked – and the answer is difficult to define, because it varies! No kitchen renovation is the same, and the cost is heavily dependent several factors;
Is the renovation a small galley in a unit? Or a large open plan L-shape with island and butler’s pantry?
Is there major building work involved, like removing walls, or moving doorways or windows? Is there a layout change needing services like plumbing and electrical to be relocated?
Are the finishes of benchtops, cabinets, appliances, and hardware standard or premium?
What does stay the same with every kitchen renovation is the process, which involves measure, design, selections, manufacture, installation, project management, and trade work.
