Our Kitchen Remodel Process

Our simple 5 step process will help you understand your kitchen renovation from start to finish.

Step 1: Getting to Know You and Your Kitchen Space

Call or email our creative design team, and we will schedule a time to meet with you at your home. We want to understand the scope of your kitchen renovation project.

Do your remodelling plans include an outdoor kitchen or additional storage spaces, like a pantry area or other custom joinery? Let us know. Innovative Kitchens would be happy to explore options to help you complete all of these projects in one streamlined process.

If no structural modifications are required, we can get started the same day. If walls need to be moved or other structural changes are necessary, we will be happy to work with the builder of your choice or recommend a builder to ensure the safety and viability of the proposed modifications.

Before we visit you at your home, we invite you to visit us in our showroom, based between Port Elliot and Victor Harbor. This way, we can acquaint you with the styles and finishes we have available for your kitchen renovation design.

We appreciate that coming to our kitchen showroom requires effort, but you will be happy you came as it will make the rest of the renovation process that much easier.

Step 2: Design and Estimate

Using the measurements and information gathered during our consultation, we will create 3D renderings of your new kitchen. You will also receive estimates that include the cost of any trades or appliances you asked us to include.

After you get the estimate and 3D design, you are invited to meet with your designer at our showroom. We can show you detailed drawings and answer any questions you have.

Is there something you don’t like or a new idea you want to include? Your designer will be delighted to work with you until both the design and budget of the project are exactly what you want.

Step 3: Sign the Contract and Check Measurements

Once you are happy with your renovation design, we will give you a contract to sign that stipulates the project’s scope, timeline, and budget.

The drawings will be signed off after the final check, measure, and run-through.

Now, the process will begin of renovating your existing kitchen into an appealing, functional space you will enjoy for decades to come.

Step 4: Installation Week

Generally, it will take between 5 – 8 weeks from the day you sign the contract to make your kitchen in our factory.

Now, the exciting installation week has arrived!

You should generally expect the renovation process to take one week.

  • Monday

    Your existing kitchen is removed. Initial electrical, plumbing, and carpentry work is done.

  • Tuesday & Wednesday

    The installation process begins, and your new kitchen starts to take shape.

  • Thursday

    Appliances arrive and are connected. Final touches are applied.

  • Friday

    The splashback is installed.

Stone benchtops add 10 to 15 working days to the process as they must be measured after the kitchen is installed and take a couple of weeks to manufacture.

Glass splashbacks can also add 10 to 15 working days as they are measured after the benchtop installation and then cut to size, painted, and installed.

“When I first met with Innovative Kitchens I had many images of things that I liked and certain looks, but needed lots of help in translating all of these ideas into our final vision. The end result has been spectacular and we are thrilled with the final result; a true reflection of the image that I had in my head from the very beginning.”

Frequently Asked Questions

We have responded to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding kitchen renovations.

If your question is not answered below or you would like more information, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to answer any queries that you have.

A kitchen remodel is often considered one of the most valuable home improvements that can significantly enhance the overall value of a home. Some factors include:

  • Increased Aesthetic Appeal: A well-designed and modernised kitchen can instantly draw potential buyers, making the property more desirable and increasing its perceived value.
  • Improved Functionality: A remodelled kitchen incorporates modern appliances, efficient storage solutions, and a well-thought-out layout. These improvements enhance the functionality of the kitchen, making it more convenient and appealing to homeowners.
  • Upgraded Materials and Finishes: A kitchen remodel often involves using high-quality materials, fixtures, and finishes that are in line with current design trends which appeals to buyers
  1. Determine your ‘why’. What are the motivating factors behind the kitchen remodel, does the space work well but is outdated? Has the family grown and more space is now needed? Does the layout of the room make it unenjoyable to work within? Determining these factors will help to provide a list of non-negotiable changes as well as items that would be nice to include.
  2. Plan the layout. With your ‘why’ in mind, work with your designer to accommodate preparation, cooking and cleaning zones within the kitchen to suit you.
  3. Select appliances and materials. Have fun with this stage! A good designer will guide you towards materials appropriate for your lifestyle and your budget too.

We usually run our kitchen renovations over 5 days.

  • Monday – Rip out and first fix trades as well as delivery of the new cabinets
  • Tuesday and Wednesday – Installation of the new kitchen including laminate benchtops
  • Thursday – Reconnection of plumbing and electrical services to appliances
  • Friday – Splashback tiling

If you’re planning to have Stone benchtops add approximately 2-3 weeks as stone must be measured on site following the cabinet installation & then manufactured and installed to ensure a perfect fit.

Glass splashbacks can also add 2 weeks to the process as again they have to be measured on site after benchtop install and then cut and painted before they can be installed.

If you’re after a kitchen installation in a hurry, benchtop selections of Laminate or Solid Timber & a tiled splashback will enable you to have a complete kitchen within 1 week.

A kitchen renovation includes a complete removal of all existing cabinets & appliances and the installation of a brand-new kitchen. A facelift usually involves retaining the cabinet carcasses and modifying or replacing the benchtops and or doors.

While a facelift can be a good option in some cases, we often find that the extra labour involved to modify an existing kitchen can be almost as expensive as starting from scratch. For this reason and the fact that a full renovation results in a far better quality product, we only quote on full renovation projects.

A small kitchen renovation typically costs between $8K -$20K depending on the selection of materials and the complexity of the design.

Relocating or changing key services like electrical or plumbing can quickly become one of the most expensive parts of a renovation. However sometimes it is absolutely worth the investment to relocate the sink from a dark corner to an island bench or to change from a stove to a hotplate and wall oven for increased accessibility.

Benchtop materials can also drastically impact the budget of a project, changing from laminate benchtops to stone benchtops can add thousands of dollars to the project. A good option is to get a quote for 2 types of benchtop materials from your designer to see the cost difference for your particular project.

To create a stunning kitchen on a tight budget focus on highlighting one feature or investment piece only. Maybe a set of timber open shelves or some standout cabinet hardware or if budget allows include a stone benchtop to the island.

These are all ways to really get a gorgeous kitchen without breaking the bank, but remember you only need to choose one feature to highlight.

The cost of cabinetry varies greatly depending on the materials selected, have a look at our gallery pages which include details of materials used and the price point of the kitchen for an overview. Then talk with your designer about how different materials you’re considering compare economically & remember your designer will be happy to provide estimates for different options in your quote too!

The most popular choice for kitchen benchtops is Engineered Stone, often referred to as Quartz Surfaces. The combination of durability, low maintenance, aesthetic appeal, longevity and design versatility along with it’s competitive price point make engineered stone very popular.

Generally, flooring should be installed after the kitchen. This saves you on materials and makes any future maintenance or repairs uncomplicated.

Many people love the look of hybrid plank floating floors but aren’t too keen on the scotia beading which is required to finish sections where the planks are cut. We offer a service called ‘Kicker Retrofitting’ in which we install the kitchen, without the kickboards allowing for the flooring to be installed with the planks tucked just underneath the cabinets and then we come back and install the kickers after the floor. This gives a sleek finish with no need for scotia beading without wasting materials or having the weight of the kitchen on the planks which can cause issues.

Rushing the process is the biggest mistake people make when starting a kitchen renovation project.

The planning and design phase is the most important time to make sure that adequate storage, good workflow zones, suitable safety clearances and even lighting design are well considered to make sure your new kitchen meets your needs and preferences. Preparing well for your initial design consult and subsequent meetings as well as making selections for appliances, sinks, splashbacks and flooring early and promptly will help your design process to run smoothly and as efficiently as possible.
