How to tell if your kitchen needs a renovation

For many homeowners, a kitchen that allows for the basics is good enough. If you live off takeout, outdated appliances might not frustrate you, but maybe the decades-old backsplash is an eyesore when you have company. For those more culinarily inclined, inadequate counter or storage space can limit creativity and access. Other reasons for a kitchen renovation in Brisbane can include:

What you can expect to spend on a kitchen renovation

Kitchens are often the most expensive space in a home to update. A wide variety of materials and fixtures can immediately stretch budgets. Your total price all depends on what level of renovation you’re after and how high-end your finishes are. If you’re keeping an existing layout and making smaller updates as part of a refresh, you can spend between $4,000 and $5,000. For complete kitchen renovations in Brisbane, you can expect to spend anywhere between $12,000 and $35,000. Factors that push these projects toward the high-end of the budget spectrum are high-end appliance brands, the use of luxury tiles and countertops, and the overall size of the space.

How long do kitchen renovations take?

With proper planning, an experienced contractor should be able to provide an estimate based on your specific project needs. Larger kitchens and those that require a lot of demolition and material removal will take longer than smaller projects more akin to a refresh. A quick upgrade to countertops and fixtures can take just a few days. However, electrical and plumbing work along with wait times for any ordered supplies or custom materials can also add to the time. Typically, a kitchen renovation will take between 2-5 months to complete from start to finish.

Steps for successful home kitchen renovations

The better the planning, the better the result. Start by asking yourself what you love about your current space and what you wish you could change. Save examples of dream kitchens you see online and bring your ideas to your contractor. From there, they’ll walk you through the next steps which look like:

Frequently Asked Questions About Kitchen Renovations Brisbane

Can I move the sink or oven, or do I have to keep the same layout?

You can absolutely change the layout and move plumbing fixtures to a new location. Bear in mind that this can drive up costs since a plumber may need to repipe the space. But if your oven is in an awkward corner or you’d love a second sink on a new kitchen island, we can design your kitchen renovation with this in mind.

Are there any kitchen renovations that don’t add value to a home?

This can be hard to predict since markets change and it can also depend on how long you stay in the home before you look to sell. Traditionally, luxury or high-end fixtures and appliances do not get a high return on investment. An upgrade to a full size refrigerator certainly will, but a double-wide commercial fridge might not wow buyers enough for them to pay what it cost you in the first place.

Can I use my kitchen while you are renovating it?

No one wants to eat out for 3 months straight while they are having their kitchen redone. Depending on the work being done on the kitchen at the time, certain areas may not be usable as a functional kitchen during your renovation. For example, appliances or plumbing may be temporarily disconnected to install new flooring or rearrange the layout. We keep our clients updated on progress and next steps so you can work around the schedule and strive to keep things as accessible as possible.

Do I have to choose a design that includes the kitchen triangle?

No, but think about why the triangle exists in the first place. The top three items that most cooks move between are the oven, refrigerator, and sink. If you spread these out too far, or have to walk around an island to get to one, you are adding extra work for yourself. There are other ways to design a kitchen so that these are still in close proximity, and we’ll work with you to create a plan that meets your design goals while keeping you efficient.

I just saw an amazing photo online and want to change the design. Can I do that?

Almost anything is possible. A better way to look at this is how far you are into your project, how big the change is, and what the change will cost you. Small tweaks are usually not much of a problem, especially if supplies have not been purchased yet. But the bigger the change, the bigger the potential for issues. For example, if your cabinets haven’t been ordered yet and you want a different door panel design, that can probably be changed and a new estimate for the new materials can be provided. But if they’re already on their way, you have to weigh whether it’s worth it to stick to the plan or reorder new materials and possibly overspend on your budget.
