The Devil Is In The Quotation Detail
To prepare for your kitchen renovation and control its costs, source competitive quotes from at least three kitchen renovation firms. Make sure they provide you with an accurate floor plan and submit a detailed written contract including a list of inclusions and exclusions.
Watch out for contractors who submit a low ballpark estimate without taking the time to carry out a thorough inspection. They may be counting later changes to increase the price.

Here are our top 5 all-too-common kitchen renovation mistakes
Avoid making them and you’ll find your kitchen renovation will move smoothly forward to completion.
- . Retain Your Existing Floor Plan
If you stick to your current floor plan, your existing plumbing can stay in place. Relocating your kitchen sink could involve ripping up your kitchen floor to move the drain and drilling fresh holes for your water supply. The same rule of thumb applies to electricity and gas appliances. Moving major appliances can add a day or so of labour to your renovation budget.
- Simple Wins
If you’re fitting new cupboards and drawers opt for stock models or ready-to-assemble kits rather than a custom design. Resist the temptation of dropping in countertop garages and drawer dividers. Fabulous as these options are, they add to your costs when you’re trying to stick to a budget.
Similarly, when renewing your appliances, look for mass-market products rather than the top of the line professional-grade alternatives. Try seconds or discount outlets rather than speciality appliance stores.
- Do Some Heavy Lifting
If you have the knowledge, tools, time and energy you can do some aspects of your kitchen renovation yourself. This can help trim your costs. Handle the removal of those old appliances, countertops or cabinets to slim your labour and removal costs.
Pick up materials yourself rather than incurring delivery fees. Paint your kitchen door, walls and window frames yourself rather than bringing in contractors.
Ensure you share your DIY assumptions with potential contractors to ensure they are comfortable leaving some elements of the renovation to you.
