What is a Kitchen Makeover?
A kitchen makeover refers to the process of renovating or transforming an existing kitchen space to improve its appearance, functionality, and overall appeal. It involves making significant changes to various elements of the kitchen, such as the cabinets, kitchen benches, flooring, appliances, lighting, and overall layout.
The usual goal of a kitchen makeover is to create a more updated and aesthetically pleasing kitchen that better suits the homeowner’s preferences and needs. Sometimes, it’s done to fix parts of the kitchen that are in dire need of repair. There are also times when such a project is planned to help increase the overall value of a home before a resale.
During the rework, the existing kitchen may undergo a series of changes to enhance its functionality and visual appeal. This usually includes replacing old cabinets and kitchen benches with new ones as well as installing modern and energy-efficient appliances. It can also include updating the lighting fixtures for better illumination and selecting new flooring materials that are both durable and visually appealing.
The makeover process can also involve reconfiguring the kitchen layout to optimise the use of space and improve workflow. By considering the homeowner’s style preferences and incorporating contemporary design trends, a kitchen makeover can transform an outdated or inefficient kitchen into a beautiful and functional space that adds value to the home.
How much does a kitchen makeover cost?
What accounts for the total cost of such an endeavour? There are many factors that will influence your budget like the size of your kitchen, materials, finishes, inclusions, kitchen cabinets, and appliances of your choice.
Your kitchen renovation cost can also vary from state to state. As of early 2023, the national averages for kitchen renovations are between $10,000 for the smallest, budget-style kitchen makeover and larger, higher-quality kitchens of $35,000+. The very highest-quality kitchen renovations can total $100,000+.
The industry standard for redoing a kitchen is around 10% of your home’s overall value. So, if you have a home that’s valued at $700,000, a makeover that costs around $70,000 is pretty reasonable. Remember, however, that this cost is still dependent on what you plan to do and what materials as well as appliances you use.

Kitchen Design Ideas – Finding Inspiration for Your Kitchen Makeover
Need help with selecting the best kitchen design for your home in Brisbane? Craftbuilt is here to help!
Besides being that part of the house where people prepare meals, the kitchen is also where they gather together to have a good time and enjoy each other’s company. This is why most kitchen designers agree that a modern kitchen should be designed not just for functionality but also for maximising social interactions.
If your kitchen isn’t a place that fits this definition, then a kitchen makeover should be considered! Aside from turning it into an ideal space for hobnobbing, there are many other benefits associated with a kitchen makeover. These include the following:
Finding inspiration for kitchen designs can be an exciting and creative process. There are various sources individuals can use to seek inspiration and to help them envision their ideal kitchen. One popular avenue is home improvement and interior design magazines.
These publications feature stunning kitchen layouts, different styles, colour schemes, and innovative design ideas. They can also provide you with a wealth of inspiration. These can also help you visualise how certain elements can be combined to create a cohesive and visually appealing kitchen design.
Another great source of inspiration for kitchen makeover designs is the internet. Online platforms, such as home design websites, blogs, and social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram, offer an extensive range of kitchen design ideas for you to browse through. Users can look through countless photos and articles that showcase diverse kitchen styles, materials, and layouts.
One thing you can do is save or pin your favourite images to create mood boards and collages that capture the essence of your dream kitchen. Some online platforms also provide access to virtual design tools and 3D renderings. These tools allow those who are adept at using them to experiment with different elements and to visualise how they would look in their own space.

Why hire an expert for a kitchen makeover?
While a DIY kitchen reno may seem like an option you can take to save on costs, more often than not, this choice ends up costing you more. Remember that a kitchen makeover project will require major installation tasks – new cabinets, lighting fixtures, electricals, appliances, plumbing, etc.
Hiring an experienced professional like the experts at Craftbuilt will help you speed up such a project and reduce the chances of remodelling errors. These experts can also advise you on cost-effective measures for your kitchen plans and which options work best with your kitchen design and size.

Book an Appointment
One of our experienced Brisbane-based kitchen designers will listen to your specific wants and needs and will discuss design options that focus on the practicality and functionality of your living space with your vision in mind.
A modern kitchen design has all the elements of a sophisticated, stylish, and functional kitchen that can accommodate all modern kitchen functions. To get a clearer view of how yours will look, you can opt to view your Craftbuilt Kitchen in our 3D design graphic software – a technology made available to you before the actual building even starts. Through this process, our kitchen designers in Brisbane will walk you through the start to end stages of your kitchen reno project.
A multitude of different benchtops, storage solutions and kitchen finishes are offered to select from, of course with the assistance of our team. Craftbuilt will not offer second-rate materials, so you can rest assured you will only see the best suppliers available on the market.
Fully Project Managed
Once final selections have been made your kitchen will be constructed from scratch in our local factory. You will be introduced to our Project Manager who will discuss installation timeframes and schedule all of our highly skilled tradesmen who are fully licensed and skilled in all fronts of a successful kitchen renovation project.
The 5 Stages of our Project Management Process
At Craftbuilt Kitchens, we’ve developed a streamlined process to help our clients experience a hassle-free kitchen makeover. This includes the following 5 simple stages:
1. The Showroom Visit
Our modern showroom is the ideal place for your project to begin. Located in Stones Corner and open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, our showroom will give you access to the latest kitchen design trends, including finishes and storage solutions. Visiting our showroom will give you confidence that what you see is what you’ll actually get. If you’re ready to take the next step, our design team can then book you an in-home consultation.
2. The In-home Consultation
The in-home consultation allows our skilled designers to fully understand and assess your kitchen needs. They can then offer expert design solutions that are customised to suit the needs of your family. Our helpful consultants will also answer all of your questions, confirm the exact project scope of work (i.e., what you want to be included), and measure the space for a detailed and accurate written quote.
3. The Selection Process
Once you’re ready to proceed, we can book an appointment for you to meet with our experienced colour consultant. They specialise in guiding clients through the process of choosing finishes, ensuring that the final selection is an ideal match for your style and budget. Because it’s often difficult to visualise a completed kitchen design, we use the latest 3D software to create a realistic impression of your finished project. This makes it easier to feel confident about your final product choices.
4. The Project Gets Underway
Once the design is finalised and you’ve chosen your finishes, the project is now ready to get started. Your project manager will handle all the preliminary tasks, which include scheduling the work, ordering materials, and booking tradespeople. Your project manager is also responsible for keeping the project running on time and on budget, so they’ll handle everything while also ensuring you’re kept in the loop.
5. Mission Complete!
Our experienced and licensed tradespeople will work hard to deliver you a kitchen that looks fantastic and is of the highest quality (while also being careful to stick to the schedule). Once the project is complete, you’ll have a fully functional kitchen that’s custom-built to your exact specifications.
