Get Your Dream Kitchen Now

A beautiful kitchen makes for a very happy cook. That saying is very true. Having your very own custom designed kitchen can make for an easier, more productive cooking environment. There are many things in life that we all regret, but owning a kitchen that makes you happy doesn’t have to be one of these regrets. You can have your ultimate kitchen now and make yourself a very happy cook. Let’s face it; cooking is fun, so why not get the best kitchen right now. Spoil yourself. You are worth it!

You want a kitchen that has the wow factor involved, but as well as that wow factor you need the kitchen to be fully functional with every gadget that you need to cook up a storm. Having the right amount of bench space is important to having space on your bench for food processors and blenders to sit on the bench ready to use every day. Choosing the right company to build your kitchen is an important decision and not one to be made in haste.

Whether you are putting in a new kitchen or renovating an old one, you still need to choose the right company with years of experience and a top notch reputation for quality and excellence. Kitchens are the one thing that all real estate companies agree are worthy of the financial investment in a home. They add much needed value to your home so that if you ever decide to sell up you can be guaranteed of getting a fantastic price for your home based on your kitchen alone. If you love cooking or even if you are just renovating a house for profit, kitchens are the best selling point and are well worth the cost.

We also understand that kitchen renovations can be a stressful event for some. With this in mind, we work quickly to have new kitchens installed so there is not much downtime but there are other factors too that can feel daunting.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you are planning your new kitchen that may help everything fall into place easier.


Preparation is everything. You will need to empty out your existing kitchen and put things out of the way. Life will be a lot easier for you if you label boxes such as ‘appliances’ and ‘cutlery’. This will help if you don’t have time to unpack everything in the same day but you need to quickly access something.

Decide what you will be keeping in your new kitchen and what you want to discard. This way, you won’t create extra work by packing things you will then throw away. If you are not keeping that old chipped dinner set then don’t pack it. Remove it from your home and avoid unnecessary clutter.


Work out your budget for this and have a clear intention of what you will choose. Then when it comes time to select what will go into your kitchen you will make a realistic decision.


If along with getting Craftbuilt Kitchens to design your kitchen you will be getting new flooring, consider something durable that won’t become slippery if there are spills. A safe and practical floor will complement a new kitchen perfectly.

Power Points

If possible, organise an electrician to add extra power points. With so many extra appliances that we can now buy, you will need them. You may well be excited about adding a coffee machine to your new kitchen or blenders, food processors and more.

Having enough power points to accommodate these will make sure you are not constantly juggling power chords and changing them about.

We are here to listen and provide you with the kitchen you have always dreamed about. Our experienced designers can offer fantastic advice and great suggestions for your new kitchen. Don’t hesitate to talk to our Craftbuilt Kitchens designers to see what we can do for you.


Home owners looking to increase the value of their homes do well to first look at the outstanding rooms in the house. The kitchen is one of these rooms.

The kitchen, being the ‘face’ of the home, is the first place that investors or property hunters look for when entering the home. This is why it makes perfect sense that this should be the place to begin when looking to boost value.

There are a few things to take into consideration when planning a new kitchen and the absolute best way to end with a perfect result is to contact our professional kitchen designers. At Craftbuilt Kitchens we proudly employ the top kitchen designers around.

With over 40 years of experience, our clients enjoy a highly professional service teamed with outstanding design concepts to provide them with the kitchen they are hoping for, or even more. When our qualified designers meet with you they will discuss the kind of kitchen you have in mind and do their best to work this in with the space available and incorporate it into matching the theme of your home.

When you are gathering ideas of your own before contacting us at Craftbuilt Kitchens, keep in mind the following, but don’t let it deter you from your own taste or sense of style.


Open floor plan kitchens offer a great sense of space. When your kitchen leads out into a dining room or living room it greatly improves the feel of the area by allowing a natural flow or progression from each area. There is also more natural light to enjoy.

It also means that with the absence of walls there is less of a feeling of being cut off from the rest of the family if you are in the kitchen. The value is added here because many buyers are looking for open plan homes, including the kitchen.

Colour Scheme

The colour scheme can make or break a sale regardless of whether you intend it to be in the near future, or a few years down the track. Trends and fads can come and go with colours but it is not always advisable to go with what is in at the time if this is something bold or flamboyant.

Instead, try to stick with neutral or light colours as these will not only provide long-term value, they will make the kitchen appear larger.

Choosing Appliances For Your New Kitchen

New kitchens add a breath of fresh air and excitement to homes. The joy of cooking in a newly refurbished well-planned kitchen is hard to beat; at Craftbuilt Kitchens we are always proud to see how impressed our customers are with the final result.

When planning  the new kitchen some people like to include the cost of new appliances other than just the oven, for example. There are so many amazing kitchen appliances available now to make food preparation easier and when you are getting a new kitchen why not treat yourself to some new and very handy tools to use.

When you talk to our designers at Craftbuilt Kitchens we will discuss with you the appliances such as ovens and cook tops available. Other appliances such as toasters, blenders and food processors are also things you can consider replacing. These appliances can also boost the value of your home if selling at a furnished state.

Whichever appliances you will be choosing, here’s a brief guide to selecting the best.

Choosing A Brand

When it comes to the big appliances such as range hoods, it’s a good idea to choose the same brand. This way the set is ‘matching’, adding to the overall appeal of your new kitchen. When it comes to buying appliances, the quality is higher the more you pay.

Safety Standards

Always choose appliances for your kitchen that comply with Australia’s very stringent safety standards. Buying from overseas sellers may be cheaper but they are not required to comply with the safety standards the same way products sold in Australia are required to.


Reputable brands will offer a warranty on their products and often the option to pay extra to extend this. Generally, the extension is between three years to five years. Depending on the appliance, it is sometimes a good idea to pay for the warranty extension for peace of mind.

Energy Efficiency

We now understand the importance of energy efficient appliances for our own benefit as well as the environment. Always check the star ratings on appliances and make an informed decision regarding the appliances you decide and choose, as well as how they impact on our world.

When you buy all of your smaller appliance items from the same company, it doesn’t hurt to ask for a discount because you are buying so much. In some cases the seller will happily agree. Shop around and do some investigating into the best deal.

Either way, at the end you are guaranteed a stunning kitchen from our team at Craftbuilt Kitchens that suits your budget and needs.

There are many studies that have shown that clutter can affect your mood. For this reason it is a great idea to make sure that your home is clutter free.

Is it that time of the year already? Spring cleaning is a very popular and useful way to get rid of what you don’t need. Having a clean out allows for a more spacious and organised feel in the home.

One of the best rooms in your home, to start your clutter free journey, is your kitchen. Lots of hours are spent by the family and residents of the home in the kitchen so it makes sense to have this area spacious and fresh.

If you are about to have a new kitchen installed by our amazing team at Craftbuilt Kitchens, then you will definitely want to start the path to make it clutter free. In preparation for your new kitchen, and to start with less to avoid disorder, here are some tips for going clutter free.

Be Brutal

When you are clearing away items for your new kitchen and in order to go clutter free, don’t be afraid to throw out items. Nearly every kitchen cupboard and drawer harbors items that are hardly used. Think about those plastic containers without lids.

Unused containers, jars you planned on using, utensils that were used once and never again—you can get rid of them. When you free up more space in your cupboards and shelves, you can then make more bench top space by storing appliances behind closed doors.

Create A Hideaway For Odds and Ends

Bills, batteries, pens and more are generally stored in kitchen areas. These odds and ends can often be piled up on the corner of the table top but making a space for them out of sight will soon sort your clutter.

Incorporate a good sized drawer into your new kitchen and make this the drawer for storing these items. You will be surprised what a difference this drawer can make to keeping clutter at bay.

Storage Ideas

Utensils, amongst others, all need to be kept neat and tidy even if they are out of view. Every little bit of storage space makes a difference to your new kitchen and makes it more organised. Our highly qualified designer will have some fantastic ideas about storage in your kitchen.
