There are many builders out there who will say that they can construct a new kitchen for you, but if you want specialist Designers who know kitchens inside out, and project managers who live and breathe kitchen construction, then why not call us at Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms?
Planning kitchen makeovers involves several steps. The first is to decide on a look or style that you like. With so many options available it can be quite daunting and overwhelming, but a kitchen Designer can help greatly with this, coming to your home to see how the kitchen can flow nicely with the rest of the house, and advising on colours and finishes (for floors, cabinetry, benchtops and splashbacks), lighting options, storage solutions, and the crucial matter of the layout of the kitchen.
It’s important early on to select the appliances that you want to incorporate, as the detailed plans for your new kitchen are drawn around these
Once your personalised cabinetry is manufactured from these plans, the work can begin – the demolition of your old kitchen, roughing in the electricals and plumbing, possibly some carpentry, plastering, installation of the joinery (cabinetry), the installation of your benchtops, electrical and plumbing fit-offs, and of course the final touch – the splashbacks, which are generally either tiles or glass.
Kitchen makeovers involve a number of different trades, and having an experienced Construction Manager who can coordinate these makes the whole process a lot less stressful for you as the homeowner.
So visit our display showroom or call us at Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms for a kitchen makeover that will change your life!
Are you sick and tired of your kitchen? Have you been dreaming of ripping it out and installing a brand new one? Are you planning to remodel your house to create an open-plan area where you can all socialise together?
If so, get in touch with Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms in Melbourne; we’re experts in kitchen makeovers. Whether you simply want to update your kitchen area, or you’re planning a big renovation project, our team of specialist designers and tradesmen have all the skills necessary to turn your ideas for your dream kitchen into reality.
Putting together a detailed wish list for your new kitchen should be your number one priority. This allows you to see what’s possible and what’s not, given the size and layout of your existing space and your budget. Think about the things that annoy you about your current kitchen.
Do you hate the way you have to close the door before you can open the oven door safely? Is the sink too far away from the preparation area? Do you struggle to plate up more than four plates of food simultaneously due to the lack of workspace? These are just some of the problems that can be remedied with proper design during a kitchen makeover.
Once you’ve decided what you do need in your kitchen, you can move onto the style. Perhaps you love the simplicity of Shaker kitchens. Maybe you prefer the sleek look of minimalistic high gloss units. Perhaps your idea of a perfect kitchen is countrified and rustic with a butler’s sinks and ornate handles.
If you’re finding it hard to narrow down your choice, an experienced kitchen designer can help. Their knowledge extends from choosing the best colours and finishes to creating enough storage and organising a good workflow within the space.
When you’ve made a decision about the layout and style, detailed 3D plans can be drawn up to help you to envisage how your finished kitchen will look. This gives you chance to make any alterations before you go ahead with the project.
Once finalised, the work begins – your custom cabinets are manufactured, your old kitchen is removed, new wiring and plumbing installed, and then your cabinets, benchtops and the finishing touches, such as splashbacks, lighting and flooring, are fixed in place. An experienced project manager oversees all the work, so that your kitchen is finished to the highest standard, on budget and on time.
