Before we begin; it’s important to understand that a kitchen renovation will be one of the most expensive areas in your home to remodel. The total cost of your new kitchen will depend on things like your chosen style, level of inclusions and any custom elements that you have selected for your kitchen design.

The Housing Industry Association (HIA) places the average cost of a kitchen renovation in Western Australia at approximately $34,000 in their latest 2021/22 Kitchens & Bathrooms Report. This figure represents only kitchen specific costs and not other additional major works that may be required, including external trades such as:


  • – Demolition and removal of your existing kitchen
  • – Construction works such as new walls, window replacement or ceiling bulkheads
  • – Plumbing
  • – Electrical
  • – Tiling
  • – Flooring

When renovating your kitchen with us this includes the complete design, local manufacture, and installation of your custom cabinetry and stone benchtops. Kitchen appliances such as the oven, cooktop, rangehood, fridges, and additional custom extras come at an additional cost, but add value to your kitchen. 

Transform the elements of your kitchen

A bespoke kitchen is custom made to fit your space perfectly, and allows for you to give it your own personalised touch. The more custom your kitchen and the more inclusions you choose to have; the higher the cost will be. 

Here are some of the bespoke elements which will affect the overall cost of your new kitchen renovation:

  • – Profiled or painted cabinetry
  • – The thickness of your stone benchtops
  • – Stone splashbacks
  • – Upgraded stone benchtop selections or natural stone benchtops
  • – Inclusion of internal hardware accessories like integrated corner units and pantries
  • – LED lighting designs
  • – Smart technology like Point Pods or docking stations
  • – White goods and appliance selections
  • – Custom cabinetry elements like feature shelving or wine racks

The size of a kitchen doesn’t always necessarily determine the scope of a budget. A small kitchen with luxury inclusions like natural stone can still cost more than a large kitchen that has been completed with modern flat-panel cabinetry, 20mm engineered stone benchtops, and integrated appliances.
