Renovating your home is a great way to add your personal touch, modernise and add value to your property. For many families, the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. It’s where you spend quality time, cook, laugh, and eat together. It is the heart of your home.
So, when it comes to renovating your home, many homeowners typically prioritise renovating their kitchen to add the most value to their property and to their lifestyle.

How much does a kitchen renovation cost in Australia?
The cost of a kitchen renovation will depend on several different factors. This includes the size of your kitchen, the materials you want to use, the complexity of the space, condition, and how much you want to change. The more complex your plans are for your kitchen renovations, the more your renovations are going to cost you.
Full vs partial renovation
When you decide to renovate your kitchen, you can completely overhauling your existing kitchen and changing everything or opting for a less invasive partial renovation.
A complete renovation can seem daunting, but ultimately, you will be able to tailor your entire kitchen to your tastes and needs. There are many kitchen designs you can choose from. You will have a say over the layout, colours, materials, appliances, and design, just to name a few. The space you have available may be your only constraint.
A partial renovation, on the other hand, will likely be a lot easier on your wallet. However, since you will probably only be giving your kitchen an aesthetic facelift, you won’t have as much say over the finished product.
Partial renovations can include a new paint job, a new tile splashback, and maybe installing a new benchtop or cupboard. These are relatively easy and cost-effective ways to spruce up your kitchen, but the general layout of your kitchen will not change.
Appliances are generally considered extra expenses. The costs will depend on whether you reuse your existing appliances or decide to buy all new kitchen appliances. Premium European brands are going to set you back more than cost-friendly budget appliances.
How long will a kitchen renovation take?
A kitchen renovation will generally take 8 to 10 weeks as a minimum. If more complex jobs such as moving plumbing or electrical points to different locations are necessary, you may need to extend this time frame.
As a general rule of thumb, it’s always a good idea to allow yourself a little bit of extra time for the renovations if something goes wrong during the renovation. Some extra time allocated in your planning stages can account for any potential delays.
