WHAT TRADIES WILL I NEED FOR MY KITCHEN RENOVATION?

When it comes to selecting tradies for your kitchen renovation, you have a few options to choose.

The first is to hire a licensed kitchen renovation company who can design and manage the entire process, so you will not have to worry about hiring or managing each tradesperson.

This is the option to go if you are looking for a custom kitchen built to your space and are not concerned with budget, time-poor and or not experienced. It also makes sense if you are ripping out your existing kitchen and changing everything.

The second option is to find the individual tradies yourself, this can be feasible and what many people do, it just takes a little bit more time and effort. If you are only considering cosmetic kitchen facelift, you may only have to hire a few trades, which is manageable.

In terms of what tradespeople to consider for a kitchen renovation, depending on the size of your project expect to hire a:

• Cabinet manufacturer or joiner to make or install kitchen cabinets, which cost from $60+/hour
• Electrician to disconnect, wire and connect all the appliances, powerpoints and lighting, which cost from $80+/hour
• Plumber to disconnect and re-connect sink, taps, dishwasher, water filters and gas appliances, which cost from $90+/hour
• Tiler to lay flooring and or tile the splashback, which cost from $60+/hour
• Plasterer to replace the plasterboard on the walls from the removal of the old splashback and other trades like the plumber and electrician required to access within the wall cavity, who cost from $60+/hour

The first thing to do when you find any tradesmen you’re interested in hiring is check with your state or local government authority. For example, in New South Wales, you can use Service NSW to check a tradesperson’s license.

In NSW, it is the law that when undertaking any trade work, the contractor is required to be appropriately licensed. To renovate a kitchen in NSW, only two license classes are allowed to undertake complete kitchen renovations they are Kitchen, Bathroom & Laundry renovator or Builder.
