A common question asked is ‘How much will a kitchen renovation cost me in Canberra?’. Generally a full kitchen renovation will range from $14,000 to $26,000 plus appliances. This will include removal of the old kitchen, the new cabinetry, hardware, doors & benchtops and will also include the trades required to do the work. This is just the average kitchen renovation, kitchen renovations can realistically range from $8,000 to $90,000+. Kitchen size is obviously a big variable when it comes to price but other variables will be: Benchtop choice – Generally Stone vs Laminate (laminate is at least half the cost of stone). Door choices – most basic is melamine then vacuum formed or vinyl wrapped and then the most expensive door options are 2pac painted, veneer or solid timber.

Other costs to consider:
  • Are there walls being moved or adjusted?
  • Can services like electrical, but mainly plumbing stay where they are?
  • How much pull-out hardware will be used in the kitchen?
  • Will the door finish be texture, matt or gloss?
  • Is there Asbestos in the lagging around the hot water pipes or in the fibre cement sheeting?


The contractors chosen to do the renovation can make or break the job. We believe that we use some of the best contractors available in Canberra. A good contractor is much more than someone who has a qualification in their trade. Obviously choosing someone with the right certificate for what they are doing is a must, but that’s just the start. A good contractor is not only good at their trade, they are also reliable, easy to talk too, will treat your home with respect and will look at the renovation as a whole to make it easier for everyone involved not just for themselves (if you are a trades person with these attributes, please get in touch with us and we will add you to our contractor database). Sometimes the most expensive trade’s people are not always the best, in saying that it is never a good idea to choose the contractor based only on price. Word of mouth is generally the best, a friend or family member who has used them and would recommend them. You will be amazed at how many recommendations you will get if you reached out to friends on social media.
