This project was done in Greenhithe by Superior Renovations. Our client wanted to expand the kitchen. Hence we pulled down the wall between the dining room and the kitchen in order to make the kitchen more wide. We also replaced the counters, and built new cupboards to give the kitchen and spacious and airy look.

3. Cost of a Custom/Designer Kitchen Renovation

You could tear down a load-bearing wall in order to expand and reconfigure the entire kitchen footprint and add an island. This might also include the option to refinish adjacent areas like the hard-wood floors, update the fireplace surround, add recessed lighting, update the powder room, etc. This type of renovation may cost between $20K-$30K (Custom based, to designer kitchens)

This project we completed in Takapuna needed 5 walls pulled down. The dining area, lounge and kitchen were three separate rooms. Each of them was a tiny room with hardly any room to walk around. In the end we pulled down the walls to create a spacious living space.
