So it’s time for a new kitchen? Whether you are building or renovating, getting the kitchen of your dreams isn’t as simple as looking around a kitchen showroom or flicking through a magazine and picking one. There are a number of considerations required to plan the kitchen of your dreams.
When it comes to kitchens, every household will find their needs differ in terms of what they want and need within their kitchen and how it is to function.

How much should you spend on a kitchen renovation?
The cost of a new kitchen will depend on a range of factors, including your kitchen’s size, condition, design complexity, the materials you want to use and your vision for the space.
The 2017/18 Housing Industry Association (HIA) Kitchens and Bathrooms survey found the average cost to renovate a kitchen in Australia was $21,132. However, my experience is a kitchen makeover can be a low as 10,000 and generally go upwards of $25,000 for a full renovation depending on the scope of work and design required.
You will need to consider the materials you use as they will influence your budget significantly. You also need to budget for the type of kitchen appliances you want, they too range from basic to top of the range European brands. The size of the job, the type of tradespeople you hire, and your location will impact the cost. A small kitchen is going to cost less to redesign and refit than a big one.
You want to make sure that your kitchen renovation is going to work for you and will add value to your home.
