Hi all,

Our kitchen needs some work - the laminate on the doors is coming off and the appliances are slowly dying - our first thought was a new kitchen, but the cost is prohibitive. Many of the elements of the kitchen work - the layout is perfect and the carcass' are in good nick. We were considering new doors, new worktops, new splashbacks and of course, new appliances. (the added bonus of maintaining the existing carcass is that we won't inevitably damage the walls!)

Has anyone undertaken a refurb of their existing kitchen? will it save money? is there anything that we should bear in mind?

Also, we are in Adelaide, anyone recommend a company that we should approach?

Cheers!


I did a part reno and part extension a few years back and saved heaps, but only by doing it myself.

Companies like Polytec will sell your doors and panels cut to your exact sizes.

By way of cost, a door 730x600 you would be looking at about $80 for their top of the line Createc gloss laminates and $50-60 for their more standard matt ranges. You of course then need to put on the hinges and the door handles etc. One trick with that though is you can use the old doors as a template, especially for the hinge holes.

The tricky bit is where filler panels have been used.

There are also 'online' companies like cabinetsondemand.com.au that will make doors and panels for you. Again you must supply the exact dimensions to them, but they will also do hinge holes etc, but again you must be exact locations. I actually used them for my reno, as the extension part of my kitchen needed exact sized cabinets, but have used Polytec to replace doors only at my Aunties place.

One of the last things we had to do inside was the pantry fit out. I mentioned before that we had received a quote from a local kitchen company to supply in flat pack form for a price of $4600. I decided to put the effort in on the "Cabinetsondemand" website and order the stuff online - cost came in a little under $1200 so well worth the effort as the online ordering system was very confusing.

Once I placed the order and paid 25% deposit it was about a 3 week wait for delivery. We opted to pick the order up from the depot here in Newcastle to save a few more $$'s.

Here it is unpacked:

And here is a picture of the empty pantry....a bit hard to get a good photo as it's a small space - 1600 x 1500..
http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg634/lynny-jane/pantryempty.jpg

The three main cabinets were assembled pretty quickly. The hardware they supplied was to the exact number required LOL - no room for errors!!
http://i1247.photobucket.com/albums/gg634/lynny-jane/cabinetsassembled.jpg

We then spent the next few hours positioning the cabinets and benchtop in place. Just have to get the splashback tiled and it's all done. The whole experience of doing this ourselves has been good. Cabinets on Demand were good to deal with and the product they supplied was great.....it's turned out EXACTLY as I had pictured it in my head when designing it....of course now that it's installed I can see areas that I could have designed better but oh well.....it will do us!!

Wow I must admit I've looked at cabinetsondemand but gotten quite confused/overwhelmed by their website/sizes but for that kind of price difference I'm going have to really sit down and nut it out :-)

Totally agree AKB…….plus the chesterfields are really comfy and I'm not having to fuss about worrying about it when kids put their feet up on them (or me too for that matter!!)…

Next job to tackle…..Pantry fit out.

I placed my order last week for the flat pack - after 3 weeks of very confusing online ordering. It's only a fairly small space but I would like to have our microwave, kettle and toaster in there as well as a bar fridge for hubby's beer. I have ordered a bench to match the kitchen, and some open shelving wall/pantry units as there really won't be the room for opening doors etc…..I chose 320mm deep shelves as I have a tendency to lose things at the back of deeper shelving.

I have my fingers crossed that my measurements and understanding of the online ordering will all come together and match the image I have in my head for it!!

I used a site called "Cabinetsondemand" and will follow through with our experience once the delivery arrives.

Just thought to add……..I resorted to designing and online ordering of it myself after I received a quote from a local kitchen company with the word "budget" in their title. Their quote for supply in flat pack form was $4600……….my final cost by ordering online was $1200. The only real change I made was to do away with a drawer unit and replace it with an open cabinet…..crazy difference hey??

I used a web based company called Cabinets on Demand to build custom wardrobe inserts for my place. Any home handman/person should have no problems installing it.

Design wise follow their instructions carefully, and consider things like notching the back of the vertical blades and trimming the bottom of blades against the wall to allow for skirting boards if you are not comfortable removing them.

Cost me about $1100 to do a 1.5x1.5m walk in robe, which had 3 hanging sections (two double 1 singe) and a combo bank of drawers and shelves. I picked up locally in Canberra so no delivery. I believe the whole concept of Cabinets on Demand is they are a group of several cabinet makers around the country so they have more offices than Canberra.

The link below is to their wardrobe page. (They also do kitchen cabinets too)

Good point about loosing the natural light into the Kitchen.

What do you think of this option?

I do have 2 double door cabinets and a single door cabinet, maybe need to change the cabinet door -with the cabinet doors used for coner cabinets and have another cabinet next to the wall with the small bench extention plus 1 overhead cabinet.

Followed by the pantry in the middle

Oven / Cooktop next to the window with a overhead cupboard on top of the rangehood.

Hopling to get the L shape and not loose much space.

Would it look good?

I think I get what you are describing. I'd probably extend the cabinets along the window wall without overheads. Put in a pantry (600 maybe?) and then a cabinet for the stove/oven next. Just keep in mind that you are required to have minimum bench space on either side of the cooktop (I think it's 300mm, but I'm not sure, so you'd have to check).

I'd start from the window and work my way in - this will probably let you know what size cabinets you can fit in.

Alternatively, take out the existing corner cabinets and put a corner pantry in there (like this). You can use the other cabinets next to it, along the window wall

Have posted this in my own thread but thought here would also be quite appropriate. (spelling mistakes now fixed!)

This is a reno of my old kitchen, house built back in 2000 but kitchen was too small. Some parts in the old kitchen were re-used, namly the cupboard above the fridge, under the sink and to the left of the skink, but everything else was new using custom flat packs, with most of the working being done myself.

All that is left is some painting, touch-up, fitting some downlights over the new bench and securing the blades wine rack properly.

Colour wise we have:

Lower cabinets: Polytech Createc Ultra Gloss White
Upper cabinets: Polytech Hazel Strata Matt.
Caesarstone: Ice Snow
Power points: Clipsal Saturn Ocean Mist
Floor and Wall tiles are porcelin, the wall is a 300x300mm tile called Vanilla Rainbow, floor tile is 300x600 called Lumina Ash, both were from Rivoland tiles in Queanbeyan, near Canberra and cost about $35m2
Mosaic tiles are called copper and came from MMM Interiors Fyshwick ACT, cost was $190/m2
Dishwasher: Bosch SMU68M05AUSS, semi integrated
Cooktop: Bosch PPH626B90A
Oven: Bosch HBA63B450A
Cupboards, flat pack from cabinetsondemand.com.au (local Canberra cabinet maker).

Overall I am happy with the finished product. I did most of the work myself, including design (with some advice from here), all that was left to the pros was the fitting of the stone and gas cooktop. Electrical was done by myself and a friend of mine who is a licenced sparky. The only thing I regret doing myself is the tiling. I should have listened to the teacher on the tiling class I did a few years back who said amateurs shouldn't touch anything greater than 200x200, anything that isn't press molded and shouldn't touch mosaics and porcelain. All our tiles match the don't touch list. Having said that I don't think I did too bas a job all things considered, especially with the floor and my mistakes on the wall I can live with.

I made a few design mistakes with cabinet sizing, a couple are a little too shallow, especially the ones under the breakfast bar where I tried to keep the bar width to 800mm so as to not eat space in the dining room. In hindsight I could have gone another 50mm and also cut 50-100mm of overhang on the seat side to give another 50-100mm inside. I also made the return where the drawers are located 550mm deep, could have gone to 600mm here too.

Most important thing is the wife is happy and must admit I am happy too. Total cost has come in at about $19000, being $7000 for the cabinets, $5500 for the stone, $4500 for appliances, plus about $2000 for tiles and bits and pieces.

Sorry if the pics are too small, for some reason the camera has small like this and next size 'up' the file is about 3meg.

Review of the old kitchen: You get an idea of how big the new kitchen is by noting where the window is in relation to old and new.

Now for Caesarstone aficionados here is a look at our two joins. The joins as you can see are on the RHS of the cooktop and opposite in the corner near the half height wall. I reckon they did a good job, the join is an even all the way along, no bumps and put in a place where it is no obvious. Must admit overall pretty happy with the job the stonemasons did.

AJW, I love your use of warm neutrals in your kitchen, looks great :) And congratulations on doing it all yourself, awesome work (you're welcome to come to Melbourne and do my tiling anyday!). I have to ask, where did you source your breakfast bar stools - they're lovely, exactly what I'm after! Chrome and the warmth of timber - perfect!

Overall I am happy with the finished product. I did most of the work myself, including design (with some advice from here), all that was left to the pros was the fitting of the stone and gas cooktop. Electrical was done by myself and a friend of mine who is a licenced sparky. The only thing I regret doing myself is the tiling. I should have listened to the teacher on the tiling class I did a few years back who said amateurs shouldn't touch anything greater than 200x200, anything that isn't press molded and shouldn't touch mosaics and porcelain. All our tiles match the don't touch list. Having said that I don't think I did too bas a job all things considered, especially with the floor and my mistakes on the wall I can live with.

I made a few design mistakes with cabinet sizing, a couple are a little too shallow, especially the ones under the breakfast bar where I tried to keep the bar width to 800mm so as to not eat space in the dining room. In hindsight I could have gone another 50mm and also cut 50-100mm of overhang on the seat side to give another 50-100mm inside. I also made the return where the drawers are located 550mm deep, could have gone to 600mm here too.

Most important thing is the wife is happy and must admit I am happy too. Total cost has come in at about $19000, being $7000 for the cabinets, $5500 for the stone, $4500 for appliances, plus about $2000 for tiles and bits and pieces.

Sorry if the pics are too small, for some reason the camera has small like this and next size 'up' the file is about 3meg.

Review of the old kitchen: You get an idea of how big the new kitchen is by noting where the window is in relation to old and new.

Now for Caesarstone aficionados here is a look at our two joins. The joins as you can see are on the RHS of the cooktop and opposite in the corner near the half height wall. I reckon they did a good job, the join is an even all the way along, no bumps and put in a place where it is no obvious. Must admit overall pretty happy with the job the stonemasons did.

As I mentioned in another thread the new kitchen is almost finished, so have some pics of the almost finished product. All that is left is some painting, touch-up, fitting some downlights over the new bench and securing the blades wine rack properly.

Colour wise we have:

Lower cabinets: Polytech Createc Ultra Gloss White
Upper cabinets: Polytech Hazel Strata Matt.
Caesarstone: Ice Snow
Power points: Clipsal Saturn Ocean Mist
Floor and Wall tiles are porcelin, the wall is a 300x300mm tile called Vanilla Rainbow, floor tile is 300x600 called Lumina Ash, both were from Rivoland tiles in Queanbeyan, near Canberra and cost about $35m2
Mosaic tiles are called copper and came from MMM Interiors Fyshwick ACT, cost was $190/m2
Dishwasher: Bosch PPH626B90A
Cooktop: Bosch SMU68M05AUSS, semi integrated.
Oven: Bosch HBA63B450A
Cupboards, flat pack from cabinetsondemand.com.au (local Canberra cabinet maker).

Dear Forum,

in the process of planning new, custom-design home. Planning on DIY flatpack kitchen to save some money - mainly base cabinets, mostly with drawers (good quality, metal sided). I'd like a country kitchen with timber doors & drawer front and have sufficient woodworking skills to make those myself (most likely from standard size pine & pine lining boards).
My question: which company to buy the flatpacks from, and importantly, which one to stay away from? I've looked at catalogues from Ikea, Bunnings (standard drawers are not great) and Nover. Has anybody done something like this and might be able to offer some comments, opinions or advice?

thanks !!


Have almost finished my own make over of my kitchen using flatpacks. They came from cabinetsondemand.com.au, which is the online arm of a Canberra based kitchen company. They have interstate 'offices' too, I assume these are local businesses associated with Cabinets on demand.

Overall the process was pretty good, the quality of what they deliver was top notch. The hinge and drawer hardware they use is Heitich and the door and panel finish is more or less anthing you like, at a cost though.

The only gotcha's is you need to know everything you plan to order and their exact sizes, this is because for them there is no such thing as a standard size. I used autocad to design my kitchen to the mm, which was handy as I could then easily see what sized fillers etc I needed. My kitchen had a full double axle trailers worth of parts. Only took about 3 days to assemble the cabinets and get them in.

What took more time that I expected are the little finishing touches, such as tiling and plaster work. Also not helped by the long lead time I had for fitting of Ceasarstone bench tops. The company that did that wouldn't work off my plans (which is a good thing), so had to come out once the cabinets were in to measure then it took 4 weeks for fitting due to them being exceptionally busy. Well worth the wait though.

The only issue I had was damage to one door, which I did myself. I emailed the company to see how difficult it would be to replace and received no reply and calling I was told it was not worth their while as they would have to order new board etc. In the end I found out, not through them might I add that Polytech who was my laminate maker sell panels and doors cut to size. So $60 later I had a new door. Only thing I had to do was put on the hinge holes, which was quite easy using the original door as a template. Would still recommend them though provided you know what you are doing and accept if things go wrong there isn't much they can do to help.

Cost wise I think it ended up being a little more expensive than Bunnings, Ikea etc, but for custom fit it was well worth the cost.

I have a thread that I started when I first started planning. Hopefully in the next few days I can post some pics of my almost finished kitchen. Christmas eve is the deadline the missus as demanded, should be ok as all that is left to do is some final painting and touch ups. The link is here:

Shouldn't be much. Check online at places like Bunnings and Ikea as well as other places like cabinetsondemand etc.

Alternatively phone a local cabinet maker. We have a great one here that I know I can phone and get prices over the ph with no issues.

After that, we decided to get a quote on build and fit (to our own design) a complete kitchen and it actually worked out a lot cheaper than getting another ******* flatpack.
There are lots of kitchen mobs around nowadays and the prices have come down considerably.
Hope this helps.



There are also a lot of flatpack kitchen companies that do good packs, at a reasonable price and don't play tricks such as what you encountered. Haven't done a kitchen as yet, but have used the company below for wardrobe inserts and found them to be top notch. Interestingly they talk about hinges etc and leave it up to the customer to decide if they want pre-drilled or left as is. I would only use a company like this if I knew exactly what I was doing though. That is I knew what I wanted and how it would all fit together.

http://www.smartpackkit.com.au/

http://www.cabinetsondemand.com.au/

http://www.kitset.com.au/

http://www.kitcheninabox.com.au/


as i am one of the companies mentioned i feel that i can add input to your question ,you first have to look at your project to decide what type of flat pack kitchen you need to buy ,by that i mean will standard cabinets fit or do you need to get custom built cabinets made and flat packed for you ,will you need tops as well ,most of the imported flat pack kitchens are only available in set sizes and finishes these may suit and then again you may want something a bit different for your project ,most of the australian manufacturers will cut down cabinets for you ,some charge most dont ,with flat pack kitchens by their very nature transport isnt a big issue ,i can get a flat packed kitchen from here (queensland ) to melbourne for about $300 and 2 large kitchens to mt isa for $500 so transport is not an issue , have a look at my site or even email sales@kitcheninabox.com.au or fax me a plan on 07 54609378 and i will give you a quote

We are still working on our renovation and are getting closer to getting things all organised.
I was planning on having a system like this to house oven, microwave, pot drawers and overhead cupboard
http://www.cabinetsondemand.com.au/category1000024_1.htm
however....
I have my heart set on this oven. I already have this oven, just a 15 year old version. I love my oven and would love to have the space of the second smaller oven at the top.
http://www.productreview.com.au/itemimage/101063
Kleenmaid are having a sale at the moment and I need to decide ASAP.

I am just wondering what sort of cabinet construction would take it's place. At the moment I have a small cupboard above and one pot drawer below. There is a really big void between the bottom of our oven and the start of the drawer though. Could it work to still have the microwave there or would it put out the height of the oven too much.

I hope that makes sense, I have two hungry children wanting dinner but wanted to get this posted as quickly as possible.

Thanks
Andrea

Good luck it is tricky with odd cabinets. I have ordered some through a company called cabinets on demand - www.cabinetsondemand.com.au - You can customise height, width and depth and order end panels as well. All prices are on line as well as delivery - they are very reasonable. I live in Brisbane and 400kg of cabinets are costing about $300 to deliver from ACT factory. The online quote for freight was double this amount so it is not accurate as they will source a true price for you before you confirm and pay.

Good Luck
