Kitchen Renovation recommendations? (another reno thread)

By DawnDrifter 12 October 2010 26

Hi all
I know this has been done before but…
We are about to to a rip and replace for our kitchen and would like to hear recommendations from fellow Rioters who have gone thru a Kitchen reno lately(or are doing one currently).
– Which company is best?
– Which company is worst?
– What to look out for?

Not looking for flat pack or anything like that, we want a custom job with efficient use of space(internal draw and cabinet inclusions) and a good finish.

Any advice would be great. Currently have got a measure, design quote booked in with one of the ‘big name’ companies in Canberra next week but im thinking of getting about 4-5 of these before deciding on who to pick.

Thanks in advance
DD

Hi DawnDrifter,

We recently got our kitchen renovated and were in the same boat as you. We did the quotes with the big gun and also with the local mob.

We ended up using a mob in Mitchell, I have also bookmarked them as they also did our bathroom reno.
http://www.vibrantkitchens.com.au is their website.

Good mob and they take pride in their work.

I realise that this is an older post but I wanted to relay my experiences for anyone who is still looking for kitchen renovation recommendations.
I recently had a complete kitchen renovation. After “shopping” around, I decided to go with a smaller company as I felt that with the larger companies I was just an “address” not a real person who had ideas of my own. I went with Brad from Purr-fect Kitchens 0409986436. Brad provided me with a free quote as well as giving me some good design ideas to visually maximise my kitchen and also improve its serviceability. From some photos cut from magazines, etc. he was able to incorporate my ideas into a beautiful kitchen with made to measure cabinets, some glass, stone bench tops and glass splash backs. His quality to detail is exceptional, good time frame and good price, though I will state he is not the cheapest.
I could not be happier with the end result and highly recommend him for any kitchen and cabinetry needs including laundry renovations and wardrobe installations.

Can’t recommend Image Kitchens and Bathrooms highly enough – fantastic operators, very personalised service – the lady that answers all the calls is very professional and extremely helpful and Stuart and Paul are the main tradesmen that oversee everything – they are on site every day to make sure everything runs smoothly and carry out most of the work themselves. Bit hard to find in the phone book, they advertise under 1300REVAMP which is their telephone number as well 1300738267

I had my kitchen done about 2 months ago from the kitchen company and I couldn’t recommend them higher! My designer so lovely and let me change my mind a million times before I finally a decided on all my finishes. The project manager Adam met with us 3 times during the process to make sure we were happy and he picked up on tiny things that we didn’t even see! The thing I found best about this company was that everything was custom designed and was basically the same price as the companies who had set designs. Very happy customer!

Get a quote from Robert Sigismundi. He and his brother do awesome kitchens at a great price. And good design sense. They will actively spot problems and identify solutions.
