Kitchen Renovation FAQs
Kitchen renovations can understandably be expensive and the price will vary depending on the amount of work you require, as well as the size of your kitchen and the materials you want to use.
You will also have to consider whether you want a bespoke renovation or a budget renovation. Bespoke kitchen renovations involve the joiner renovating your kitchen from scratch, with bespoke materials and finishes applied, A budget renovation is where you pick the kitchen design you require from a supplier and have it fitted.
A bespoke kitchen renovation averages between £20,000 – £50,000.
A budget kitchen renovation will cost between £6,000 – £15,000.
A typical kitchen renovation can take anywhere from four to eight weeks from the start of demolition to the completion of the final finishes.
It's important to note that a kitchen renovation involves several stages, such as planning, design, demolition, installation, and finishing. Each of these stages has its own timeline, which will vary depending on the type of work requested and the size of the kitchen being worked on.
Kitchens can come in a variety of different styles. Some of the most popular kitchen styles in 2023 include:
- Modern – A sleek design, horizontal lines, smooth cabinets and countertops, and open spaces help create the increasingly popular modern kitchen design.
- Minimalist – Open plan kitchens lend themselves well to the minimalist style. You’ll only want to add the most necessary features to create this look, whilst using a monochrome palette to enhance the sleek and modern design.
- Country – Think warm and cosy farmhouse kitchens. Heavy use of rustic woods with a mix of personal touches to add a homely, country feel
- Rustic – Heavy use of wood and stone helps create a rustic style, which is also known for being warm, inviting and charming.
- Industrial – Increasingly trendy, industrial kitchens use neutral colours and tend to show off exposed structures, such as brick walls, pipes and beams. Use of concrete flooring and wooden features are also common. Industrial kitchens are not overly cosy or warm but are stylish and in-vouge.
- Eclectic – A blend of styles that come together to create a modern and personal design
- Scandinavian – Clean, sleek, modern and cheerfully minimalistic
We recommend holding off on buying appliances until you have either decided on your kitchen style or your kitchen renovation is fully complete.
Make a list of appliances that you need for your lifestyle and then buy them in a style and colour that matches your new kitchen. This way, you will only purchase items that you truly need and you will be able to add to the overall look of your kitchen without detracting from the specific style.
The type of flooring you choose will depend heavily on the style of kitchen you are looking to achieve. Some common types of flooring include
- Hard wood floors
- Stone tiles
- Vinyl Flooring
- Engineered wooden flooring
- Laminate flooring
- Polished concrete
In most cases, you will not need a permit to remodel your kitchen. However, if you plan to make structural changes (I.e. tear down or put up a new wall), you will need to obtain a building permit.
In addition, if you plan to move or add plumbing or electrics, you will also need to obtain the relevant permit for the type of work you plan to have done.
Many people choose to remodel their kitchens in Spring and early summer time as many suppliers offer great sales at this time of year. However, you’ll often find more availability and cheaper costs for hiring traders if you remodel your kitchen at the beginning of the year, as work can be slow for contractors around this time.
The best time to remodel a kitchen will be different for everyone. We recommend considering factors such as; school holidays, work commitments, and family commitments, as well as monitoring seasonal sales, to find the time that works best for you.
Having an up-to-date kitchen that is attractive in its design and has been properly and professionally installed will almost certainly add value to your home.
The only way your kitchen renovation will not add value to your home is if it is badly done or very poorly designed.
There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your recently remodeled kitchen stays looking new for longer:
- Clean your kitchen regularly!
- Remove stains quickly
- Install blinds to prevent sunlight from discouloring surfaces
- Always use a chopping board to avoid marking your new countertops
- Use pot stands and avoid placing hot pots and pans directly on countertops
- If your countertops are wooden, make sure you re-oil them reguarly
- Do not place your kettle under wall units and cabinets as rising steam can cause materials to warp and swell.
It is certainly possible to live in your home during a kitchen renovation, although you will need to make some adjustments to your daily routines. We recommend moving the fridge, freezer, microwave and over to another part of the house where they can still be used (if possible) as this will allow you to continue cooking at home.
If you are able to move out of your home during the renovation, even if it’s for a few weeks, work may be completed much faster, so it is worth considering if this is manageable before moving forward with your renovation.
What Our Clients Say
Don't normally do reviews like this but I feel I must on this occasion after having several companies in at my elderly mother's house to convert a stair so we could get her a chairlift to assist her with her mobility we were met with comments like "waste of time" and "impossible". We were lucky to have met Dave and his approach and attitude of yep I can make and alter that for you. Thank you will never be enough from me, a great guy and a great job.
Just want to thank Davie for a lovely conversion to our summer house, to allow us to use it for an additional workspace, always dubious about what some contractors say to me in the past, but no worries here whatsoever. Can't thank them enough for this...we have used them after this for other works in our house and will continue to do so.
A big thanks to David and his son Brian first class service from them both made a great job of fitting a new insulated loft hatch and loft ladder for us to give us additional space in the the house maybe just as small job for them but a massive improvement for us did exactly what the said they would do great job clean and tidy at a very reasonable price.
Big thanks to David for my new bathroom window great to find a joiner that can actually make something from wood to match what we already have in place just a plain wooden window with a small top opening made exact to match the other window good price good service and on time very happy and will use again later this year for our wooden deck.
