Melbourne is an amazing place to live.  Every suburb has a distinctive character and spirit that sets it apart—albeit sometimes only slightly—from its neighbours.

From the leafy coolness of Glen Iris, to the beach side beauty of St Kilda, to the beloved swamps of Werribee, you could almost imagine that some giant celestial kid had created our city as a diorama project for Show And Tell.  Then there are special cases like Flemington which, just like Santa, most people only care about for one day of the year.

The one thing that unites all these places however, apart from the very heart of the city and some of the newer suburbs that have been springing up lately, is that most suburbs have old-style housing.  And whether we are talking about the grand old terrace houses at Albert Park or those awful old pre-War council flats at Newmarket, the kitchens of Melbourne have been neglected for far too long.

It really is a great idea to get stuck into renovating them.  You can do it and it doesn’t necessarily have to be difficult or expensive.  In fact, it’s one of those things where whatever you spend (as long as it is done sensibly), you will come out on top in the end.

To ensure you get the best results from your renovations, the smartest thing to do is consult with professional kitchen designers in Melbourne who can give you expert advice and assistance.  You can’t go wrong if you do this, unless you have the misfortune to choose a less than honourable company.

The chances of that are pretty slim, since there are all kinds of regulations in place these days to protect consumers, and nobody will stay in business for long if they’re not dealing from the top of the deck, so to speak.  Nonetheless, you don’t want to trust just anybody.  You should look for a reputable firm to get you on track.  We’ll give our own recommendation at the end of the article.

By working with an expert team of designers and builders, your project is assured of success.  Normally it will be completed in much less time than a DIY renovation, and contrary to what many people think, it will probably work out to be less expensive.

In our opinion, you can find the best kitchen builders in Melbourne at Ultimate Kitchens.  To find out more, visit the website or call 03 9882 4103.  They have a great kitchen showroom in Melbourne where you can have a browse and talk with their consultants.  This is the best way to get an idea of what you can expect, and we strongly recommend that you do take that opportunity.  We’re sure you’ll be glad that you did.
