Setting a Budget

Kitchen Renovation Costs in Perth

The cost of a kitchen renovation in Perth can vary greatly, depending on several factors. At QN Kitchens, we provide a comprehensive service that includes design, manufacturing, and installation. Our kitchen renovations typically range from $30,000 to $80,000, with the average cost around $45,000 to $60,000.

Whether investing in a luxury or mid-range kitchen renovation, we recommend basing your budget range on your current home value estimate. As Perth’s trusted kitchen renovation experts since 2005, we suggest dedicating 6-8% of your total property value towards achieving your dream kitchen space.

To guide you, for a home valued around:

$500,000 – Allocate $30,000-$40,000

$750,000 – Plan around $45,000-$60,000

$1,000,000 – Budget approx. $60,000-$80,000

This budget will cover essentially the whole cost of your kitchen renovation, including the manufacture, supply and installation of cabinetry, benchtops, splashbacks, and appliances as well as the work of trade people (e.g. plumber, electrician). If you are willing to allocate 6-8% of your house value to your new kitchen, you can count on the QN Kitchens team to deliver a full renovation at no additional cost.

Remember, this is just a general estimate. Exact kitchen renovation costs in Perth depend on factors like size, layout changes, finishes selected, structural modifications, and labour costs. Our team is transparent every step of the way, providing detailed quotes outlining what’s included so you know where your investment is going. We also offer payment plans to help make dream renovations affordable.

Let us take your budget goals and craft a contemporary kitchen that becomes the heart of your home for years to enjoy.

Understanding the Value of a Kitchen Renovation

Upgrade Your Lifestyle and Property

If you’re looking to increase your property value, renovating your kitchen is a great place to start. As an appealing long-term asset, kitchens provide an excellent return on investment by increasing the value of your home.

However, the value of a kitchen renovation isn’t purely monetary. It can also make a huge difference in your family’s lifestyle. By transforming outdated, dysfunctional spaces into contemporary hubs tailored to your needs, you are investing in your daily quality of life. You don’t have to opt for the most luxurious kitchen materials to start reaping the benefits of an upgrade.

Even a mid-range kitchen renovation with improved storage and an optimised layout can help shape your kitchen into an enjoyable space for intimate meals, hosting lively gatherings, or bonding with family over dinner prep.

With clever custom storage, bench space optimised for your family’s workflow and high-quality finishes selected to stand the test of time, you’ll love and use this space for years to come.

Insights & Advice

Factors That Increase Your Kitchen Renovation Costs

Achieving your ideal kitchen likely requires upgrading multiple elements of your current space, but some aspects have more impact on the budget than others. As you consider renovations, be aware of these key factors that tend to increase overall project costs so that you can plan and budget accordingly.

Kitchen Size

It should come as no surprise that larger and more complex kitchen layouts translate to significantly higher kitchen renovation costs. Your kitchen size directly correlates to the materials and labour required to complete your renovation project. A larger footprint means you need to buy more flooring, cabinetry, countertops, and appliances to fill the space.

Working with intricate room shapes like narrow galley styles can also drive up costs, as this means you’ll likely need custom-made cabinetry and clever space-saving solutions. Incorporating islands and multiple countertops can be a fantastic way to improve the functionality of your kitchen, but ultimately, this also comes with a larger price tag.

Structural Changes

Making any structural changes to the layout or footprint of your kitchen can add significant cost to your renovation project. Structural changes include removing or adding walls, changing door or window positions, and potentially extending into another room or outdoor area. If you’re making structural changes, you’ll likely need to update the whole flow and fittings of your kitchen.

This additional work needs to be conducted by trade specialists like builders, plumbers and electricians, so you can expect an overall greater renovation cost.

Tiles and design choices for a kitchen renovation

Selection of Materials & Style

The materials, finishes, and style you choose will have a direct impact on your overall kitchen renovation costs. Opting for natural stone surfaces, high-tech integrated appliances, and designer fixtures cost more than laminates, medium-density fibreboards and standard freestanding household appliances. The extent of luxury materials and appliances included in your makeover sets the per-unit costs across the project.

If you’re looking to achieve a more complex, high-end aesthetic like a minimalist or industrial-style kitchen, be prepared to shell out more money on feature materials and skilled fabrication from our tradespeople. The more luxurious and on-trend the look, the pricier it gets.

Trade Contractors

The tradespeople you hire represent a sizable portion of your total kitchen renovation costs. While bringing in expensive specialists like architects and interior designers adds to the fee tally, their involvement can ultimately save you money through better project efficiency. Similarly, licensed tilers or carpenters with decades of experience will reasonably charge higher prices, but they also guarantee superior results and can better handle more complex designs.

While some companies may quote 30% less than reputable competitors, they lack the skills and experience, leading to costly adjustments down the track. Evaluating price and quality trade-offs is key. Although top professionals demand premium rates, you tend to get what you pay for – peace of mind and quality kitchen renovations.

Understanding Kitchen Renovation Costs

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to common questions about the cost of kitchen renovations in Perth. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Why do kitchen renovation costs vary so much between quotes from different builders and tradespeople in Perth?

There are major differences in rates based on experience levels, material markups, and project management effectiveness. Highly skilled specialists charge a bit more but deliver exceptional service and long-lasting results. Cost differences also come from whether you are undertaking a small kitchen renovation, or have a larger space to work with. Even aspects like the types of cabinet doors used can affect the overall cost.

What inexpensive changes can I make to my kitchen for the most visual impact?

A kitchen facelift is a good option if you are looking for a new look without a big financial investment. In a kitchen facelift, an updated exterior is added to the existing internal structure of your kitchen cabinets. This includes a new benchtop, cabinet doors and finishing panels and can be extended to new appliances, sinks or taps.

However, before investing in a facelift, consider whether your current kitchen truly meets all your needs – both now and in the foreseeable future. If you opt for a kitchen makeover, you might still wish for additional storage or a different layout. But once completed, it’s unlikely you will go through a full-scale kitchen renovation anytime soon. Splitting a complete renovation into smaller projects might save you money in the short term but will cost you much more in the long term.

That’s why we recommend consulting with our professional kitchen designers before committing to your kitchen renovation in Perth. They can assess your needs, guide you on how best to use your space and provide flexible payment options.

Can I do any DIY to reduce the total renovation investment?

Yes, if you’re on a tight budget, demolishing old cabinets, removing flooring or tiles and painting trim yourself can cut costs – if done properly. Whether or not you do these yourself will depend on how much of your leisure time you are willing to invest into your kitchen renovation project as well as your experience level. If you’re not confident about the quality of work you can deliver, it might be best to leave these tasks to the professionals to avoid a costly do-over.

You should always leave structural, electrical and installation of new items to qualified tradespeople.
