  • How Much Does a Kitchen Renovation Cost?

Australian kitchen renovations generally cost between $15,000 and $100,000. This price range includes the full range of kitchen renovations from facelifts to high-end custom-designed kitchens with all the trimmings. Architects will often allow around 10% of the total home building costs for the kitchen. Some are starting to allow more because the kitchen is perceived as such an important room.

Smith & Smith is committed to producing quality made-to-measure kitchens at friendly prices.

The following articles shed more light on what a variety of budgets will provide in your kitchen renovation.

A quick search on the web usually brings up the following cost categories. Smith & Smith only offer complete kitchen renovations rather than facelifts. While these levels of expenditure are a good guide, there are always exceptions that fall outside of these ranges – either to the lower or higher end.

  1. Budget $10,000 – $25,000 (generally includes face-lifts and basic upgrades)
  2. Standard $20,000 – $45,000 (complete new kitchen and some upgrades to the kitchen shell – such as a new window or flooring)
  3. Premium $45,000 – $75,000+ (larger scale and perhaps a new layout with luxury materials)

Domain suggests similar pricing levels and states that “kitchen pricing can vary dramatically” stating that the materials chosen play a big part in the budget, as does location. The more remote the location the more limited the choice – DIY options become more prevalent.

  • Budget kitchens start at about $10,000 and go up to $25,000
  • Mid-range or standard kitchens range between $20,000 and $45,000
  • Luxury kitchens start at $45,000 and can go up to $100,000 or more

A great way of working out what price range a kitchen falls into is to look at kitchen award finalists and winners. Have a look at our award winners here.
