Budgeting is integral to any successful renovation project. That's why we provide tailored advice and options to suit your budget. Prices may vary depending on the design, materials, and hardware you choose. We understand that budgeting can be a tricky subject, but it's important for us to have an understanding of your ideal budget. That way, we can ensure the best possible outcome for your renovation.
The duration of a kitchen renovation can vary significantly based on several factors, including the scope of the project, size of the kitchen, materials used, and the availability of contractors. On average, a kitchen renovation may take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks to complete. However, more extensive remodels or custom designs can extend the timeline to several months. To get a precise estimate for your specific project, you can contact us for a more accurate timeline.
Most homes that are in need of a renovation usually have small, enclosed non-functional rooms. Our job is to take a holistic approach and discuss the different options with you that could potentially improve your home. We can help you decide if it's worth spending more money on a complete redesign that would involve moving plumbing, removing walls, etc., or if some high-end appliances, hardware, and materials would be a better use of your budget. Whatever the decision, we will be there to guide you every step of the way, ensuring that you understand the impact of each change.
Yes, we can create you a designer bathroom, laundry, walk in wardrobe whatever your heart desires. Our designs are created so you can pass them on to a builder of your choice. They are precise to the exact measurements, taking into account plumbing and electricity, so anyone in the industry will be able to follow them. Our renovation side of the business specialises in kitchens only. Call us to discuss your requirements.
The initial consultation for your renovation project is $200 and will last for around 1.5 hours. During this meeting, we will discuss your requirements, family needs, and way of living. We will review the location of existing structures, such as non-load bearing walls and dropped ceilings, and provide suggestions for possible removal or build if necessary. We will also discuss plumbing, electrical, and plastering work, and how the new design will impact these services and the cost thereof, so that you can make an informed decision. We will make sure to answer all your questions and ensure that you feel confident to take the next step of your renovation.
Before your consultation, we ask that you have pictures or pieces of inspiration ready to discuss your renovation project. This will give us a clear understanding of the dream home you envision. It's also important to consider the layout of each room and how they will all work together to create a design that meets your aesthetic and functionality needs.
Once the initial consultation is completed, we will provide an in-depth design proposal tailored to your needs. The cost of the proposal will depend on the complexity of the renovation, but if you decide to hire KSW Design and Renovation for your kitchen build, the cost of the design will be deducted from the kitchen installation.
We are based on the Gold Coast, and offer renovation services for Gold Coast, Hinterland, South Brisbane and Redlands. If you are located outside of this region, we can still provide the design and support you to find an appropriate renovator for your project. Travel charges may apply.
At KSW Design, we bring our showroom to you. Our mobile showroom makes it more convenient for our clients to meet us in the comfort of their own homes, where they can get a better sense of the colour and material selection. We've seen too many cases where the colour changed between our office and the client's home, so we believe it is important to make the selection at home.
We put the time and effort in because we love what we do and we know that it’s often hard to visualise the end result just by looking at a sketch.
