Kitchen renovations recommendations?

By LG - 5 March 2008 22

As I’ve seen a few posts on here seeking advice on Canberra products/services, I thought I’d try my luck and see if anyone on The RiotACT could recommend a good person/company to do our kitchen renovations (planning/drafting –> installation). We’ve finally decided to do away with the standard 1970s stylings..!

Happy to pay a premium for a good experience 🙂

Thank you!!

I would be interested to hear more about Avant Garde kitchens if possible.

Hi Gerry did you use Laminex bench top or stone? Basically what I want to know is water resistant substrate required for bench top only?

Actually – avoid Clockwork Kitchens. We’ve just (today) found out our (Clockwork Kitchen’s)kitchen is not up to code and water resistant substrate was not used in the benchtop. Not very helpful post-sale either.

Thanks for all the replies everyone! You’ve given me a good base to start from!

We used P&K Joinery at Mitchell – very happy with the result.

“RandomGit – yes we’ll probably be looking at granite benches”

I think the granite place on Geelong St in Fyshwick is still there. They’d be worth having a chat to as well.

Kitchen Connection – the sales pitch was slick and everything seemed good – until it came time for installation….three weeks later the job is finally completed – after a stack of phone calls chasing them up. Missing bits, doors fitted on the wrong side, a microwave you needed a step ladder to reach…..

The relationship started well but quickly went down hill.

Claude from Clockwork Kitchens at Mitchell will start installing the kitchen in our new 5.5 star house tomorrow.

He’s been great to work with – pooling ideas with us to solve problems creatively. Lightboxes, LED downlights, pop-out drawers, handle-free, safe, universal access, and easy to maintain.

He’s a bit slack on the paperwork, but everything has come together exactly when needed, and competitively priced too.

EZY-AS Kitchens in Fyshwick are great. Friendly staff and good quality…

Thanks for the advice so far everyone.

Vern – Canberra and Queanbeyan Kitchens. He has done a few for me now, competitve cost, reliable, looks good and gets the job relatively quickly, with constant referral throughout. Usually take two days, o9ne to knock the old out, and a day to rebuild the new one. Freaking good for an old bloke.

If Nigel the dodgasaurus cabinet maker doesn’t work for Simplicity Kitchens anymore, I’ll give them a thumbs up.

If you want granite benches let me know and I’ll look up the mob that did ours.

We’ve had two kitchens (one replacement + one in the new build) done by Kitchen Link…both were excellent jobs, very happy.

Is Melinda Boag still around (I think that was her name)???

Check out the latest display village near you and there’ll probably be a few cards lying around for kitchen places, with the added bonus of seeing a sample of their work at the same time.
