Overall Kitchen Renovation Process

1. Planning and Design

  • Assessment and Planning: get hyper clear on your goals and vision for your new kitchen, and establish a budget.
  • Design Phase: Work with a designer or architect to create a layout, select materials, fixtures, appliances, and finalise the overall design concept.

2. Permits and Approvals

  • Council Permits: Depending on the extent of the renovation, you might need council permits for structural changes or major alterations. It’s crucial to comply with local building codes and regulations.

3. Demolition and Preparation

  • Demolition: Clearing out the existing kitchen, removing old cabinets, appliances, flooring, and fixtures to prepare the space for the renovation.
  • Structural Changes: If any structural alterations or modifications are required, such as moving walls or changing plumbing/electrical layouts, this is the stage for it.

4. Installation of Fixtures and Fittings

  • Cabinetry and Bench tops: Installing new cabinets, counter tops, and kitchen islands according to the approved design.
  • Appliances and Fixtures: Fitting and connecting new appliances, sinks, faucets, lighting fixtures, and ventilation systems.

5. Flooring and Finishing

  • Flooring Installation: Laying down new flooring materials, such as tiles, hardwood, laminate, or vinyl, based on the design and homeowner preferences.
  • Painting and Finishing Touches: Applying paint, wallpaper, or other finishes to walls, ceilings, and cabinetry.

6. Clean-up and Inspection

  • Clean-up: Removing debris, cleaning surfaces, and ensuring the renovation area is ready for use.
  • Inspections: Conducting a final inspection to ensure compliance with building codes and safety standards.

Factors Influencing Costs in a Perth Kitchen Renovation

1. Size and Scope of the Project

  • The size of the kitchen and the extent of renovations significantly impact costs. A complete overhaul with structural changes will cost more compared to a partial renovation.

2. Materials and Finishes

  • Quality and type of materials chosen for cabinetry, counter tops, flooring, and fixtures influence costs. Premium materials will incur higher expenses.

3. Labour Costs

  • Labour costs depend on the complexity of the work, including demolition, installation, plumbing, electrical, and finishing.

4. Appliances and Fixtures

  • The choice of appliances and fixtures, such as ovens, refrigerators, sinks, and faucets, varies widely in price and can significantly affect the overall budget.
