    What does a kitchen renovation include?

    Every kitchen renovation project starts with planning and design - making sure you know what elements you want to change, remove, and update, and how much it’ll likely cost. Because you may not need to do a complete gut and rebuild. If some parts are still in good condition and fit with the new design, you may be able to keep them as-is and save your budget for other features. After planning your reno (and relocating all the food and crockery), the next steps will depend on what you’ve included in your plans:

    Demolishing your existing kitchen

    Usually, the first step your kitchen renovator will take is to rid of your existing kitchen or any parts in it that you won’t be keeping. They’ll start by removing the existing cabinet doors and cabinet bases, followed by doorway and window trims. Then they’ll shut your power off and remove built-in appliances and light fixtures. If you’re replacing the wall panels and flooring, they’ll be removed last. You’ll need to safely store anything you want to salvage and you may need to organise rubbish removal to clear your space for the installation.

    Installing new appliances

    Once you’ve bought your new appliances, such as ovens, stovetops, fans, and lights, they’ll usually need to be installed by a qualified electrician. They’ll start by turning off the power, water, and gas. Then they’ll install your new appliance, check that it is safe, secure, and level, and then test that it’s working properly. Once your appliance installer is done, they’ll turn the power back on.

    Installing cabinets 

    Cabinets are the centrepiece of your kitchen, so it’s worth investing in a professional installation. Usually a cabinet maker, carpenter, or cabinet installer will review your kitchen layout, check that they’ve got all the right pieces, and then start assembling your cabinets. They’ll secure each cabinet to the one next to it, as well as the walls. They’ll use a spirit level to check that each cabinet is plumb and level, so they’re ready for the benchtops, crown moulding, and scribe moulding. 

    Installing new countertops

    Once your cabinets are in place, your kitchen renovator can collaborate with a benchtop installer to add your new countertop. Depending on your kitchen layout, you may be able to purchase an off-the-shelf kitchen benchtop. Otherwise, you’ll need to customise an existing benchtop or commission a custom one to fit your space. Countertop installation involves mounting the countertop to your cabinets and walls, before securing it in place with glue, screws, and brackets. Finally, your countertop installer will seal any edges and clear up any waste. 

    Installing new flooring

    When installing new kitchen flooring, most people choose easy to clean, hardwearing options, such as tiles, slate, or linoleum. Once your existing flooring is removed, your flooring contractor will clear dust and debris from the area. If they notice any height or level issues with the floor, your kitchen renovator may attempt to level your flooring out, then prepare the surface with soundproofing, moisture barriers, and underlay. Your floor installer will use adhesives (like glue or cement) to secure your new flooring down. Once all the flooring is installed, they’ll check again to ensure everything is level and all edges are sealed, before installing mouldings and finishings so there’s no gaps between your flooring and cabinetry.

    Kitchen renovation using existing cabinets


    Box Hill North VIC 3129, Australia

    27th Oct 2018

    My kitchen installer has gone walkabout three days before commencing so I urgently need someone to help first week of November. I'm keeping the existing cabinets but putting new doors and panels on. You can measure up yourself or we can reuse the measurements done by my missing installer. Old doors and stone benchtop need to be removed. 3 drawers to be installed in one cabinet. The sink and dishwasher need to be swapped around, so minor plumbing required. Slide out rangehood needs to be replaced. A substrate needs to be laid for a stone benchtop. Existing tiles removed, wall prepared for new splashback tiling on 2 walls (approx 3sqm). Aluminium kickboards. It's a small L shaped kitchen and I can go into more detail when the job has been allocated.

    Michael helped me at short notice and did a fantastic job. He is a hard worker and happily helped with a few other unexpected things. His communication is top as well as attention to detail. Thank you Michael!
