Total kitchen makeover cost may range from $10,000 (small and budget kitchen) to $50,000 (high end kitchens). The total expenses largely depend on the following:
- Size of your kitchen
- Customisations (custom-built pieces are usually more expensive)
- Labour costs and timeline (the longer the project duration, the more expensive it will be)
How long to completely remodel a kitchen?
It may take 1 to 2 months depending on the complexity of the project. It’s especially true when you request for heavy customisations for the kitchen cabinets, shelves, benchtop, table, chairs and other wooden pieces. It will take extra time to build these custom pieces according to your specifications.
For instance, ordering custom cabinetry may also take 1 to 2 months. The wood materials may need to be imported or purchased first (which adds to the waiting time). In addition, all the other tasks may depend heavily on the cabinet installation (a few aspects of the project may not progress until the cabinets are installed).
Also take note the movement of plumbing and electrical components. This task may require up to a week and another week to place them in their new locations. The structural repairs may also take a few days up to a week until completion.
There are also those unforeseen events that may further prolong the time frame such as bad weather, discovery of asbestos and delay of materials delivery. These events may double the length of the timeline and even blow up your budget.
Hiring expert craftsmen & the right tradies
To mitigate the risks and stick closer to the deadline, many homeowners only hire experienced craftsmen and tradies to do the job. For instance, the craftsmen may speed up the project progress because they already have the wood materials required for custom cabinetry. Experienced tradies will work efficiently to prevent delays and minimise rework and rebuild in the kitchen.
