This is just an average estimated cost guide to help you plan before choosing to renovate. Most clients, however, do not fit into these three distinct categories. They often pick various aspects from each category to make a kitchen that is unique to them. 

 

If you wish to keep your kitchen layout the same but want to make a few changes then that will incur an additional cost. The reason that a change in layout means additional costs is because the area needs new plumbing as well as re-wiring which need counsel approval. Any council approval will require architectural drawings, documentation, and inspection. The additional cost for this could lie between $2,070 – $6,210.  

 

Budget-Friendly Tip-  Repair  your kitchen cabinets and doors.  Try polishing and restoring countertops instead of paying for  new materials.

4. How much does it cost to remodel a small kitchen renovation in NZ? – How much does a kitchen renovation cost? 

 

Small Kitchen-  

 

A small kitchen renovation is typically around $5,520 to $27,600 which could mean simply upgrading certain features. In terms of square foot, it would mean a kitchen which is 75 or smaller. It all depends on what’s features that you want to apply. There are a few tips that you may want to consider,  

 

  1. Most homeowners have said that they wish to have more storage than space. You can add additional storage space by installing pull-out baskets, spice drawers, section drawers for cutlery and plates and bowls, or even corner cabinets. Adding such conveniences gives you the storage space you require without having to build new cabinets for storage. 
  2. Installing storage drawers within your existing cabinets will allow you to have extra counterspace for meal preparation.
  3. Extra Countertop- pick a modern single sink rather than a double sink. Maybe have 4 kitchen stoves instead of 8. This will help you have more counter space, and you will also save money which you can then use for other things that you want in your kitchen.

 Expert tip

Renovation Companies

Managing a kitchen renovation means that you will have to coordinate all different trades like carpenters to build cabinets, product suppliers, flooring installers, electricians, plumbers, painters, plasterers, designers, and kitchen installers. You will have to manage the trades, their timelines and resolve any conflict that may arise. However, most people do not have the time to manage a project effectively and they prefer employing a company that can manage the entire project for them. Such renovation companies usually  provide all the labour involved, have designers, supply materials, and provide appliances at trade prices. They have a project manager that coordinates supplier deliveries, manages all trades and ensures that the renovation is running in regards to the timeline.

Kitchen Cabinets 

What is the average cost for Kitchen Cabinets?

When you think about your kitchen, the first thing that pops into your head is the space available to store your dry groceries such as canned items, snacks, pasta bags and rice. The kitchen cabinets make a great impression when family and friends come over due to the various textures, materials and colours used within your kitchen renovation. You can expect to spend between $4,140 – $11,040 on an average. The more cabinets you built the more the cost of your kitchen goes up. If you are building top and bottom cabinets then the cost of your kitchen renovation will be higher than a kitchen with bottom cabinets only. 

  • Basic Kitchen Cabinet cost– keeping your original cabinets. Instead, you can simply replace your cabinet doors or hinges. You can also re-paint them with a fresh coat of paint. This would cost you between $103.50 – $207.00 per linear foot
  • Mid-range Kitchen Cabinets will cost between$138 – $1,242 per linear foot. You can custom built your cabinets through a renovation company with mid-range products. Most of our mid-range kitchens feature custom cabinet carcass and doors with MDF Melteca.

Already have all your own trades and you’re comfortable managing them for your kitchen renovation?

Although we don’t recommend if you haven’t renovated a kitchen before and/or you don’t have trades people you can trust, most renovations if not all comes with it’s own surprises because not all homes are the same – this is where experience/project management plays an important role in minimises risks to maintain costs/delays giving you higher certainty of outcome/quality backed by associated guarantees and warranties.

However, if you do intend to manage the kitchen renovation yourself, it does work out more cost effective to contact a kitchen cabinetry manufacturer directly to get the kitchen cabinets designed, manufactured and installed – leaving you to manage the other trades such as flooring, demolition, painting, plastering, splashback/tiling, electrician, plumber, and sometimes a carpenter/builder.

Mary Stuart’s design brief was to have a kitchen which looked like a Spanish Villa. This meant that we needed hardwood flooring. However, as hardwood floors are very hard to maintain we installed woodgrain tiles instead. These tiles look like wood and feel like wood but are far easier to maintain than hardwood floors.

7. Cost of hiring a designer for your kitchen makeover in NZ. 

Some people might think that getting a designer is not necessary when renovating their kitchen. In some cases, renovation companies recommend getting a designer involved especially if they are going for a mid to luxury kitchen renovation. Designers can advise you on textures, colours, materials, and styles that are popular today. A designer will also create 3D models as well as renderingmodel of your kitchen with all the paint, materials, door handles, countertops, and appliances so you are able to visualise what your kitchen will look like after the renovation. A renovation company often has their own in-house designers that will work with the project managers throughout the renovation, so your drawings are turned into a living reality.

If you are installing tiles on your floors, then you will have to hire a tiler as well as grouter. The labour cost to tile an average kitchen will range from $1000 to $3500 depending on the complexity of the installation. If you are installing larger tiles, then the labour cost will be lower as there will be lesser grout lines. If you are installing smaller tiles, then the labour cost will be higher as there will be more grouting that will have to be done. 

Permits

In New Zealand, Auckland Council looks after your property permits. Permits are required if you are extensively changing the layout of your kitchen. When you change the layout of your kitchen, the plumbers will have to build additional pipes which need permit from the council. You would also need a permit if you were planning on demolishing a load bearing wall in the kitchen. 

What Auckland Council does is that they see what your architect has drawn and see if the remodels of your house can go further. Auckland council reviews the drawings by your architect for either the demolition of your load bearing wall, rewiring, or building additional pipes. Once they have approved the permits, your contractor will begin their work.  Building permits from Auckland Council cost you around $2500 – $6500. However, you must know that it takes about 1 to 5 months to get an approval from the council. Our advice is to send your permits earlier in the year, so the work can begin and finish before Christmas.

9. How to remodel a kitchen on a budget?

 Whatever the reason, budgeting is important when renovating. This is especially true when you are about to invest in something that requires you to spend your hard-earned money. It is good to have a clear idea on what you want to spend so you can set a fixed budget for the renovation. It is good to get a fixed quote from your renovation company before committing to them. 

  We also ask our clients to have some extra money saved as there could be some unforeseen circumstances along the way. This could include finding water damage or rotten timber once the renovation is already underway. This could cost you an additional $1000 – $2000. 

Basic Kitchen on a Budget.

For a basic kitchen, the estimate to renovate your kitchen is around $20,700. You must know that when budgeting for a basic kitchen, you must pick your materials and install for yourself or finding professionals that are suitable to your budget.

Top 4 tips when renovating on a budget

  1. If you wish to save, then try D.I.Y projects. This is a great way to do things yourself as you get to customize and pick whatever materials you want. For instance, you can change cabinetry and do the painting yourself. This way you will save on labour costs as well as project management. However, you might want to consider hiring a professional for plumbing and electrical as these are specialised tasks. 
  2. Try and pick your own cabinetry. Try and decide if you want to reface or refresh your cabinets. Both these options are very affordable choices when for a budget kitchen. For instance, change cabinets doors or just remove old paint and repaint your cabinets. 
  3. Upgrade only essential things in your kitchen rather than what you desire. You might consider changing your cabinet door handles, shelving’s or even a fancy rose gold faucet at a later stage.
  4. Organise your budget well – If you are on a tight budget then chances are that you will have to manage your own project. Hiring a company that provides project management might not suit your budget. If you are managing your renovation, then make sure you are there every step of the way. It is a good idea to renovate in stages.

11. 7 Tips on planning your Kitchen Renovation

Before 

Set a budget! Tell yourself, can you do it on your own, D.I.Y, or willing to hire a renovation company to do it for you. 

  1. See what is best for your kitchen layout! If need help, then you might want to consider a designer to help you with the layout of your kitchen.
  2. Think of your kitchen needs than your personal desires as you can invest on other things at a later day.
  3. Pick the aspects of your kitchen that need more attention and get help restoring them. This will help you reduce your budget; however, additional cost will apply when making changes in the future. 
  4. Renovating a kitchen takes between 6-8 weeks so make sure you are renovating at a time when you do not need your kitchen a lot. You could also consider creating a makeshift kitchen during the renovation process. 
  5. Make sure that you choose a renovation company that has good health and safety practices in place. Speak to your contractor about this and they will sort some things out for you as dust from renovating may cause long-damage to your health when breathing in the dust. Try a vacation! 
  6. Cleaning! Ask you contractor if you wish for a cleaning service and they will do that for you.

  • Lastly, most importantly, enjoy your kitchen!

12. How to choose the right renovation company in Auckland?

9 things to look at before choosing your renovation company

  1. Research– Find at least three renovation companies thatyou can hire to renovate your kitchen. This can be done by asking friends and families. It would also be good to check the company’sprofile by looking at their website. When checking their website, you want to check out the company’s reputation like their testimonials, current projects or google reviews from customers.
  2. Meet the people – It is also good to meet the project manager from the company and have a chat with him/her about similar projects that they have done in the past. Ask them as many questions as you want. This will help you understand how your interaction is going to be with them for the duration of the project.
  3. QuotationDo not accept the first quote you get from a company. Get several quotes and compare them. Make sure that you get a fixed quote with possible variations clearly outlined. The cheapest company is not always the best company so choose carefully.
  4. Trust– It is important to check the companies’suppliers. Normally the renovation company will advertise them on the internet but, make sure you ask them about their suppliers. Choose a company that works with reputed suppliers who provide warranties and guarantees for their products. 
  5. Legitimate company- This is crucial aspect when deciding on the company that you wish to hire for your kitchen. All companies should have a practicing license to operate. Make sure you do some research about the company’s license on: https://companies-register.companiesoffice.govt.nz/
  6. Testimonials – Make sure you ask about their past kitchen remodels before choosing the company. This will help you see what the experience of their clients have been while renovations.
  7. Talk to past clients – You can ask the renovation company to give you a list of their past clients. Have a chat with these clients about their experience with the company. You can ask about the  materials they used for their cabinets, countertop, flooring or even the splashback. Another question to ask past clients would be to see if there were any faults? Were the past clients satisfied with their kitchen or were looking for something else?
  8. Insurance– Make sure that the renovation company has insurance in case of any mishap during the renovation. Another way to see if renovation companies have chosen is the right business is by checking if the company can handle the project as it is willing to finish on time by a date. This shows that the business is a healthy and thriving business with good systems in place. 
  9. The Contract– Get in touch with your bank, accountant, or lawyer with your decision to go to the next step. The kitchen remodels will draw you and contract with the steps, quotes, insurance, or a timeline of the project before signing it. It is recommended to see if both parties agree with the contract and wish to move to the next step. 

In conclusion, the cost of renovating a kitchen depends on various factors. Budget planning also depends on what your needs are and how you interact as a family in the kitchen. If you are renovating to sell or to add value for a better rental yield then you should just do an upgrade like changing cabinets and painting the room for a better return on investment.

If you are renovating to improve functionality and increase your quality of life then make sure that you choose materials that last you a long time and are easy to maintain. A designer will also help you improve the functionality of your kitchen by either changing the layout or maximising storage by incorporating innovate storage etc features.

    Already have all your own trades and you’re comfortable managing them for your kitchen renovation?

    Although we don’t recommend if you haven’t renovated a kitchen before and/or you don’t have trades people you can trust, most renovations if not all comes with it’s own surprises because not all homes are the same – this is where experience/project management plays an important role in minimises risks to maintain costs/delays giving you higher certainty of outcome/quality backed by associated guarantees and warranties.

    However, if you do intend to manage the kitchen renovation yourself, it does work out more cost effective to contact a kitchen cabinetry manufacturer directly to get the kitchen cabinets designed, manufactured and installed – leaving you to manage the other trades such as flooring, demolition, painting, plastering, splashback/tiling, electrician, plumber, and sometimes a carpenter/builder.

    How much does a New Kitchen remodel cost in NZ? – Basic Kitchen 

     

    Firstly, you might want to think about the kitchen layout. For instance, how big do you want your kitchen to be? Are you going to keep your kitchen layout the same, or are you going to make some changes? What style do you want your kitchen to be? Do you want modern, traditional, or contemporary features? These are some good questions to ask yourself before you contact a renovation company.

     


    1. Kitchen Layout for a New Kitchen remodel on a budget

    Most of the time a change in layout is not possible in a basic kitchen renovation. Changing the layout or moving your island, sink or plumbing will increase the cost of your kitchen renovation especially if you are on a budget.

    After Basic makeover in Papatoetoe

    Check out this basic kitchen’s case study:  Papatoetoe

     

    If you are more likely to stay with your original kitchen layout, then in that case your cost will decrease, so you might want to consider staying with your existing layout of your kitchen. It is however possible to create a budget friendly kitchen if you choose your renovation materials carefully. We will now discuss the different elements of your new kitchen when on a budget.


     

     

    2. Cabinetry and Storage for basic kitchen remodel

    The biggest expense in a new kitchen is cabinets. Do some research and get an idea of the kind of look you want for your kitchen cabinets. If you have an overly large kitchen then you might want to think about just changing its doors or changing cabinets that are damaged. This is where we use your standard cabinets and we remove old paint, stain, sanding and repairing the same boxes, and re-apply paint to the same wood of choice.

     

    Building entirely new cabinets is also possible but you will have to use mid-range materials like MDF. Melteca and Goodwood are two of the most popular MDF brands in Auckland. MDF in simple terms is manufactured wood from a factory. It is easier to clean than natural wood and has a better finish compared to acrylic. Melteca and Goodwood carry a budget friendly range for their products which come in various textures and designs.

    See Case Studies:

    Melteca Oak Wood Finish look in Standmore Bay 

     

    Storage is the second most important aspect of a well planned kitchen. Most kitchens in Auckland feature an open plan setting which means that they must have good storage, so the kitchen does not look cluttered.

     

    To create an uncluttered look, think about installing a cutlery drawer, spice racks, pull out bins, magic corners etc. We recommend allocating a substantial part of your budget on your cabinets and storage because you want them to last a long time.

     


    3.What kind of countertop is right for my basic kitchen?

    Countertops are another important feature for your kitchen. It is vital to choose a countertop that will be resistant to water, is durable and hard-wearing. There are many options available for budget friendly kitchens and our recommendations are as follows:

     

    • Laminate countertopsLaminated Countertops is a material that has a lot of different colours and styles. This material is long lasting, stain resistance and has natural heat. Laminate countertops remains one of the top materials in New Zealand when renovating a kitchen. So, why is it one of the top materials? Laminate is a great material for people who wish to renovate their kitchen on a budget as it is $150 per square meter. Laminate does however have its drawbacks as it can be easily stained.
    • Stone EngineeredEngineered Stone is the most popular and common countertop used in Auckland for new kitchens. So what is a stone engineered countertop? A stone engineered countertop simply means that the stone is manufactured in a factory instead of natural stone. The benefits of stone engineered stone is that through technology, manufacturers can manipulate the stone for added benefits like higher durability, better designs and is cost effective. Stone engineered countertops are often made of 90 percent Quartz. This material is a great option for first kitchen renovators as Quarts is affordable and available with a range of variety of textures in New Zealand. Stone engineered is not just durable but comes with 10 years of warranty and is scratch resistant.

    Houzz states that stone engineered countertops can range between $520 to $1200 per square meter.

    4. What appliances can I get for a basic kitchen?

    The first step is to see what appliances you want to upgrade. This can be from stovetop to dishwasher. Here is a tip! However, if your budget does not include high maintenance appliances then do not worry. We have got your back and just think about the existing appliances are working and the other appliances that need more attention. This could help you save a huge amount, and you can use that with other upgrades in your kitchen remodeling.

     

    Appliances are another major factor when thinking about kitchen renovation as they are needed for cooking, baking, warming up, and refrigeration. To stay within your budget, only buy appliances that your really need. If some of your appliances are working well then there is no need to buy new ones.

     

    When picking appliances, see what models have great reviews and only buy good-quality appliances that will last a long time. Having good quality appliances will also increase your house valuation if you do plan to sell your home in the future.

     


    5. Flooring

    Choosing the right type of kitchen flooring is important as kitchens are usually a high traffic area and are prone to food and water spillage. You might want to think about the texture of the material you choose as a good kitchen flooring should be easy to clean, hard-wearing, and water-resistant, (hard for water to get through). There are four  great options for a basic new kitchen in NZ:

     

    • Linoleum FloorsLinoleum flooring is a natural eco-friendly material. It does however need regular maintenance and might not be suitable for families with young children. For instance, Linoleum flooring is likely to get damage because of the moisture in the water and, will wear off with time. Linoleum can also make a home look dated so it might not be a great option for everyone.
    • Luxury VinylAs technology has developed, the properties of vinyl have also improved. Luxury Vinyl is a type of vinyl that is more durable than regular vinyl.

    2. Cabinets, Doors, and handles

    When renovating a mid-range new kitchen remodel cost in NZ , you will have a lot more choice in materials, textures and designs for your cabinets and door handles.

    The material that you would be using at this level would be MDF Melteca. MDF Melteca is surface that most kitchen remodels use in New Zealand. Melteca has various ranges of materials and it is highly popular in NZ as it is affordable, easy to clean and highly durable.

    You could choose a more premium range of MDF for your cabinets. We work with Melteca and Goodwood brands to custom built all cabinets. You can use Melteca’s high gloss premium range for your mid-range kitchen.

    You can also customise your MDF cabinets by wrapping it with Dezignatek Thermoform with any pattern you like to create a traditional, vintage, classic or modern look. For example the cabinets below were wrapped with a Rhonda pattern to give them a vintage look.

    • The front of the drawers and cabinets were wrapped in Dezignatek Thermoform with a ‘Ronda’ pattern to give the cabinets a vintage look.

    If your budget allows then you can also custom-build cabinets made of real wood but they are often very hard to maintain and hence MDF remains a popular choice for kitchen cabinets.


    3. Door handles and Blumotion

    Our mid-range kitchens often feature soft close cabinets and hinges from Blum and Hafelle. Soft close cabinets are drawers from BLUM allow your cabinets to close softly and without any effort even if they are slammed shut. This feature is great for homes with young children or when you have a busy day in the kitchen.

    Hinges from Hefelle and Blum will also last you longer as they are very durable due to their superior technology and will not rust.

    If you are going for a modern or contemporary look then you can also opt for a no-handle set up with LED lights above them. This will give you a seamless and uncluttered look especially if you have a small open plan kitchen.

    If you want a cottage style or traditional style kitchen then you can also install brass handles to give it a more vintage feel. To give it a cleaner and more classic look you can also install matte knobs against white cabinets for contrast.

    4. Storage for a kitchen makeover NZ

    When taking about cabinetry, we talked about the way your cabinet looks and how it feels but now let us talk about the storage inside your kitchen. Having good kitchen storage is an important feature of a functional kitchen.

    Kitchen storage can be useful to store dry foods, small appliances, cutlery, pots, pans, plates etc. Most homeowners like to store their things in places like in the panty, drawers, shelves, or their kitchen island. Check out this link for more comprehensive ways to organise your cabinets

     

    6 ways to maximise storage for your mid-range kitchen

    1.Magic corners
    magic corners can be created for cabinets that are in the corner of your kitchen. They allow you to reach the corner space inside your cabinets which are often hard to reach. Most of our clients prefer using magic corners from BLUM.

    2.Cutlery drawers and spice racks
    due to our busy lifestyles, it is important that our kitchen is always well organised. You can get custom built drawers with compartments for your cutlery and spice racks. Also remember to put your cutlery drawer next to your crockery drawer and as a top drawer. Also ensure that your spice rack is next to the stove, so it is easy to access them when you are cooking.

    3.Custom build condiment drawer
    You can also make a custom built condiment drawer which pulls out. For example, if you see the condiments drawer below, it does not have any cabinet planks on either side which makes it easy to view your condiments when cooking. This saves time and energy when looking for what you have in your shelves.

    4.Pantry with pull out drawers

    it might not be possible to make a walk in pantry for a mid-range kitchen but that does not mean that you cannot have a well organised pantry. This a great feature for homeowners who seek extra storage for their dry foods, carbs, sauces etc. The pull out drawers is located inside the pantry and this feature is very useful when customising your drawers as it helps you to be organised and it helps you find what you are looking easily.

    5.Pull out bins

    Pull out rubbish and recycling bins cab be installed within a cabinet which makes your space more hygienic as there are no extra bins on the floor. It also helps the area look uncluttered and cumbersome. Remember to install your pull out bins near your sink area because, it will be easier for you to throw extra waste or recycle their empty products.

     

    6.Island which doubles as storage 

    Another option for a mid-range kitchen is to add a kitchen island. A kitchen island can be incorporated within layouts like U-shape, L-shape or even a galley, depending, on the space you have left for family entertainment or preparing food. An island can also be used in multiple ways in your kitchen, for instance, you can have extra storage underneath your island with drawers, you can have a stovetop or even a sink in the middle of your island. Another way to customise your kitchen island is to have a waterfall edge for your countertop or have your exposed countertop hanging off the edge, so that can leave space for your bar chairs. In fact, to renovate a kitchen island is going to cost you between $4,000 to $6,000.

    DSC06694, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland


    5.Kitchen Countertops

    In New Zealand, renovation companies recommend homeowners to invest in Engineered stone countertop as they are affordable, durable, resistant to water, anti-bacterial and hard-wearing.

    For a mid-range kitchen, you will be able to afford a stone engineered countertop of a more superior quality and design.

    Luxury Engineered stone countertops are made from crushed marble and granite as it is a popular choice. You can choose a countertop with either sparkles ingrained within it or with ingrained designs or an overhang island for a luxurious look. You also choose to have a thicker countertop with waterfall edges for a contemporary look. If you have a thicker countertop then it will cost, you more than if you choose a less thick countertop.

    Stone Engineered countertops options for kitchen renovation in  NZ 

     

    If your budget allows then you can choose a natural granite countertop which is more expensive than engineered stone. You can also install a real timber countertop, but this will have to be treated before installation. We would not recommend this countertop for people who have busy lives as a timber countertop needs to be maintained regularly.

    Splashbacks

    Splashbacks are important as they catch any splatters made while cooking and also prevents from damaging the paint of your walls. Splashbacks are often installed above the stove top and sink area.

    Tiles, mosaic tiles and glass tiles are three great material options when choosing a backsplash for your kitchen. Ruth from Tile Depot recommends using the Tribecca collection of tiles for splashbacks as it instantly elevates the look of your kitchen. Tribecca tiles look like handmade tiles which look textured but are actually very easy to clean.

    6. Essential Kitchen appliances cost for a mid-range level kitchen renovation in NZ.

    When choosing your kitchen appliances, make sure your appliances are position in a way that is most convenient to you when preparing food or cleaning up. For instance, install your dishwasher next to your sink so your cleaning process will be easy. Another example is having your fridge between your stove and sink as you will be able to grab things much faster. Positioning your oven underneath your stove or place it at a closer distance to your cooktop. This is because when cooking or cleaning, the oven bar can come in your way and it will make it harder for you to move around, cleaning can also be a challenge if the oven is above or below eye level. Instead place your oven at eye-level to make cleaning easier and it can also be convenient when taking things in and out of the oven.

    Choose your appliances well and check their energy star rating before making the purchase. Choose energy star rated products because it helps reduce your energy bill, they have a longer lifespan and come with an extended warranty.  Unlike in a basic kitchen renovation, you will be able to change all your appliances to new ones.

    Our mid-range kitchen renovation clients often use SMEG, Samsung, and Bosch for their appliances as this fit in easily with their budget. A freestanding mid-range oven from SMEG will cost you between $25000 – $4,000 if you are buying through a renovation company. This free standing oven often has a gas top, a warmer and single oven.

     

    IMG_0841, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

      SMEG dishwasher used in a West harbour for a Mid-range kitchen renovation
    • Bosch is another great brand for stovetops, ovens dishwashers, waste disposal, and rangehoods. Bosch is a more cost effective brand compared to SMEG and is very durable. You can expect to spend around $414 for microwaves, $1150 for modern ovens, and $1500 stain steel fridges.
    • SMEG has an extensive range when it comes to price and makes appliances for mid to high range kitchen renovations. SMEG appliances are more suited for people who want a designer element in their kitchen. They come in various designs and styles to suit most tastes.

     

    If you want a seamless and clean look then you can hide your appliances by building cabinet doors on top of them. This can be done by building cabinet doors on top of the appliances. However, only certain brands and appliances will be compatible enough to build cabinet doors on.  We will not recommend you build hideaway ovens and microwaves as they can be a health and safety hazard.

     


    7. Kitchen Flooring

    Your kitchen should ideally be staining free, waterproof, and easy to clean, comfortable and, most importantly, hard-wearing.  You will have a lot more options to choose from for a mid range kitchen as compared to basic kitchens.

    • Tilesare often a popular choice for Kitchen flooring as they are easy to maintain and durable. Ceramic and Porcelain tiles remain popular for kitchen floors as they are versatile and come in various designs and textures.
    • Porcelain tiles are better recommended for kitchens as they are more durable and harder to damage. They are more expensive than ceramic tiles, but you will get a lot more design options for porcelain tiles. Porcelain can be made to mimic stone and wood which can elevate your kitchen design.

    Tiles can however be cold in winter or hard on your feet when you are cooking for long periods of time. To combat this, you can either install underfloor heating or put some soft rugs on your kitchen.

    •  Luxury Laminate Flooring is also another option for kitchen flooring. They are warmer than tiles but are not water resistant which could be an issue with maintenance. If you are installing laminate flooring, then make sure that you wipe away any water spills immediately.
    • Hybrid Neptunehas a new range of kitchen flooring called the stone polymer composite. This hybrid flooring is great for mid-range kitchens as it has all the best properties of stone and laminate. The stone used in Limestone and the Neptune SPC is water resistant, warm, soft on the feet, and muffles the sound of your footstep.

    Ruth from Tile depot says that this is a much better alternative compared to tiles or laminate and does not require any underfloor heating. It is also very durable and comes in many finishes. It will also not get damages due to sun or extreme cold weather.

     


    8. Smart Kitchen features and Lighting

    Good lighting is necessary in a kitchen as it needs to be a bright space as most of the cooking and entertaining happens here. You can use recessed lighting on the ceilings as well as LED lights above splashback, underneath cabinets and door handles which can be dimmed or made brighter in accordance with the mood you want to create.

    You want lights that are low heat emission and longer lifespan. LED lights gives your new kitchen a nice medium tone of light. It is recommended that we should not get lights that are not so bright or dim, just in the middle as the lights have a large impact on us and our guest.

    You can also add sensor lighting and blue tooth lighting which can be switched on and off through the command of your voice. You can also change the colour of these lights with the help of your phone, remote or voice. You can also add pendent lighting above your islands or dining area to create further depth in your kitchen design.

    How much does a New Kitchen remodel cost in NZ – Luxury kitchens

    The kitchen is a best way to give an overall impression for your guests especially in open planned kitchens. To renovate a brand-new luxury kitchen in New Zealand is between $50,000 and up to $173,880. A luxury kitchen has no limitation to cost, and we recommend you still spend your money wisely as you will be spending a lot for a custom-build kitchen.

    In a luxury kitchen you will be spending on a new kitchen layout, custom built kitchen storage, cabinets, high-quality countertops, marble flooring, designer flooring and brand-new appliance.

    The biggest difference in mid-range and luxury kitchens is that in luxury kitchens your budget allows you to incorporate high end and premium materials.

    Do check our table above to see what other things include in a high-end kitchen and, read our pervious article on how much does it cost to renovate a kitchen in NZ in 2021?

     


    1. Hiring a kitchen designer for your layout

    When you are building a high-end kitchen, you have the freedom to customise your kitchen from start to end. This is where you will hire a kitchen designer and they will advise you on what materials, colours and what your style will look like by creating 3D models and renderings.

     

    Picture-2-2, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland Kitchen1-1, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

    Above are a few elevations of 3D rendered drawings that our designer Dorothy created for a client who needed a kitchen renovation.

    The kitchen above is an example of 3D renderings and designs that our designer Cici created for a client that needed a kitchen renovation in Parnell

     

    Layout is very important when it comes to interior designer because they need design accordingly to the plumbing points and electric wiring for cooktops. However, when renovating a luxury kitchen, you have the flexibility or changing your plumbing and rewiring to suit the layout you want.

    Storage and countertop benches are the most essential things when renovating a new kitchen.

    Check out some top 5 crucial tips that Dorothy (our in-house kitchen designer) has recommended:

    1. Plumbing and Electrical Ports If you are trying to keep your kitchen renovation cost at a lower end of your budget then do not move your wiring and plumbing as this will significantly increase costs. Keep your stove and sink in the same position that it is currently in.
    2. Advice on materials– A kitchen designer will also help you understand more about the renovation materials that you can incorporate in your kitchen design. They will help your combine different materials, textures and colours to create a beautiful kitchen. Due to their industry experience they will have knowledge about the innovation in materials and what is more suited for your family’s needs.
    3. Space planning and work triangle – When designing your kitchen layout from scratch, you might want to think about the foot space in your kitchen. Your kitchen designer will design your kitchen layout in accordance to the work triangle.

    Superior article about layouts: https://superiorrenovations.co.nz/kitchen-layout-planning-guide-to-achieving-a-good-kitchen-design/

    A work triangle measures how effectively your kitchen is planned. It makes sure that there is a clear pathway from your stove to the cleaning area and your refrigerator. This triangle should have no other foot traffic in its pathway. You want to be able to comfortably work in your kitchen.

    Weizter-The_work_triangle-2, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation AucklandReference: https://weizter.co.za/magazine/the-work-triangle

     

    1. Appliances should be close by when moving around the kitchen like your sink should be opposite your stove or oven, microwave, or dishwasher.
    2. Storage planningYour kitchen design should include designated areas for storing all your cookware, spices, large appliances, and crockery. This will determine how you built your cabinets throughout your kitchen. For example, if you are storing your large appliance like a bread maker or a mixer in the left side of your kitchen then you have to make sure that the cabinet has the space and height to fit them. If you do not plan your designated storage areas then you might have a kitchen that can either not fit your appliances or have space that is wasted.
    3. Kitchen islands Luxury kitchens often feature kitchen islands in their kitchen designs. If you do not have space for a kitchen island, then you can explore the option of knocking some walls down to expand the space of your kitchen.

    kitchen islands are a great addition for your kitchen as they give you extra counter space for food preparation and are a great entertainment area. You can also add two islands if you have a large kitchen area. Just like mid-range kitchens you can add extra cabinets, put a stove top, and add bar stools.

    To hire a kitchen designer, you will be spending around $6,900 or between $138 to $276 per hour in New Zealand.

    Customised Cabinets, Cabinet features and Joinery

     


    2. Customised Cabinets, Cabinet features and Joinery

    Cabinets

    Luxury kitchen cabinet doors are made from high-end quality materials which start from $2,070 per linear foot. When you are planning to renovate a high-end kitchen renovation, then think about getting materials that will last longer and have design features.

    Depending on what type of style you want for your kitchen, you have the freedom to customise your cabinetry options to either modern, traditional, contemporary, classic, cottage style or industrial.

    • Natural wood  like Timber is a great option for your cabinet doors and drawers. You will have to make sure that it is treated so that it is not easily damaged. They have a natural beauty that gives it a will make your kitchen timeless. Depending on the wood you choose, you will be able to incorporate various hues like oak, maple, pine etc.

     

    Pro tip: If you are using natural wood for your cabinets then make sure that they are treated and polished every 1-2 years to ensure longevity.

     

    • Porcelain tiles on MDF (neolith) can be installed on your MDF cabinet boards to create a feel of luxury on your cabinet and drawer doors. Neolith is one of our preferred suppliers for porcelain tiles as they have an extensive range in textures and colours. Attaching porcelain tiles on MDF boards allows us to create designer kitchens in various styles. For example, you can use porcelain tiles that look and feel of cement to create an industrial style kitchen. Cabinets with Porcelain tiles require very good quality joinery and hinges to support the heavy weight of the porcelain tiles. We will discuss more about joinery a bit later in the article.

     

    Pro tip: Cabinets with porcelain tiles attached on them will last you a long time. They will not be worn out easily and are great for families with kids. They can be heavy so you will have to choose your joinery and hinges carefully.

     

    • Lacquer on MDF

      has been a popular choice for luxury kitchen cabinets because of its extensive range in colours and styles. Lacquer cabinets have 2 coats of paint applied to your cabinets with a high gloss finish. They are an expensive choice because you need a specialised skill set to create these cabinets. While they are waterproof to an extent, they should be regularly maintained as prolonged contact with water can warp them. They are also prone to fading if they are in contact with direct sunlight too often. They might have to be repainted every 5-10 years depending on its wear and tear.

     

    Pro tip: If you have children in your household then we would recommend not using lacquered cabinets as they are prone to superficial scratches which will compound over time.

     

    • Timber Veneer

      is basically manufactured wooden veneers which are attached on your MDF carcass. We often work with Bestwood and Melteca for wooden veneers as our clients can choose from an extensive range in colours, textures, and patterns for their kitchen cabinets. Luxury timber veneers like the woodgrain range from Melteca are a great alternative compared to natural wood as they are made to be more durable and require less maintenance. They emulate wood in how they feel and look but can also be manipulated to the exact look that you require which is often hard with natural wood.

     

    • MDF Vs Plywood Vs Particle board for your carcass

    Plywood and MDF are a better choice compared to particle board for the carcass of your cabinets as they are more water resistant and are much sturdier. We recommend using Plywood for your carcass when creating cabinets under your cleaning or sink area. This is because plywood is more water resistant compared to MDF. You can however use MDF for the rest of the cabinets in your kitchen. MDF and plywood have similar qualities when it comes to aesthetics and durability.

    Details on your cabinets

    You can also add crown moulding on your cabinets if you are going for classic or traditional kitchen design. You can also adorn your panels with wainscoting if you want a classic or cottage style kitchen. We often wrap Dezignatek Thermoform on cabinets to create patterns and designs on kitchen and drawer drawers.

    For more traditional kitchen designs you can also create corbels and crown moulding on your cabinets to give a more furniture like look.

    Joinery

    We use BLUM for all our joinery and hinges because they are one of the best in terms of quality and innovation. Blum also has hinges and joinery in darker and lighter shades so a seamless design can be achieved whether you have dark or lighter shade cabinets.

    Types of joinery we recommend:

    1. Soft close cabinets and drawers: Soft close cabinets are great as no matter how hard you bang your cabinet doors; they will close softly without any sound. This also prevents wear and tear to your cabinets, and this will prolong their lifespan.
    2. Tip on Blumotion: These drawers will open automatically when you press them. In order to close them you just have to push them hard, and they will close softly. No matter the style of kitchen your kitchen, this technology will improve the way you use your kitchen.
    3. Pull out systems: Pull out systems allow you to open your cabinet upwards as opposed to traditionally opening on the sides.
    4. BLUM Legrabox: This type of drawer system is designed so your runners are not visible and gives a sleek look to your drawers which works very well for contemporary, industrial, and modern kitchen designs.
    5. Pull out pantry drawer system: This custom built pantry system boasts a pantry with pull out drawers with clear sides so it is easy to organise your pantry and your pantry items are easily visible.

    Hinges that can support more weight:

    If your kitchen cabinets have porcelain tiles attached on their MDF board then your cabinet doors and drawers will be heavy. To support these heavy doors and drawers, you will have to make sure that the hinges can support them. BLUM makes hinges that can support up to 70kgs which is suitable for heavy cabinetry.

    As discussed above, planning your storage is important before even building your kitchen cabinets. This is because certain cabinets might need runners that can support more weight compared to others. For example, drawers and cabinets with heavy appliances and crockery will need runners that can support more weight compared to ones that will have your cutlery.

     


    3. What are my options to organise my kitchen storage?

    You can get your standard storage like magic corners, cutlery drawers and pull out condiment drawers. However, with a luxury kitchen you have the flexibility to change the layout of your kitchen in a way that you can create a butler’s pantry.

    • Butler’s pantry/ kitchen

    A butler’s pantry is especially good for homes that have an open plan kitchen and for people who love entertaining guests. The butler’s pantry usually is a small room that is connected to the kitchen where you can either prepare your food or make mess in private without making your main kitchen dirty. You can also store your big appliances and dry food or install a sink to wash your dishes at a later stage.

    Picture-5, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

    • Walk in pantry or pull out drawer pantry

    If you do not have a very large kitchen then opt for a small walk in pantry instead. A walk in pantry is just another form of a walk in wardrobe. You can create a large cupboard with shelving where you can install a sensor light to easily view your dry food items. If this is not an option, then you can custom built a pantry with pull out drawers.

    • Natural stones like marble or granite are two popular high-quality materials that designers recommend using on your countertop or kitchen island. Granite will cost you around $4000 to $7000. Marble on the other hand with cost rom $10,000 to $15,000 if you are using it for an island as well as all your countertops.
    • Natural stones are popular because they exude a natural beauty which surpass the beauty of any stone engineered countertops. They have natural patterns that are unique to each slab and hard to engineer.

    2. Concrete

    • Concrete is also an option for islands, but it is a lot harder to work with. As concrete countertops can be very heavy, they pose a set of technical challenges which means that they should be manufactured and installed by renovation companies that have experience working with concrete.
    • If you do want a concrete countertop for your island or countertops your countertops must be supported by steal beams as other materials will not be able to support the weight of concrete. Concrete is usually used in contemporary or industrial style kitchens.

     

    3. Mix different textures, materials, and finishes

    • Dorothy from our design department suggests using a combination of different stones, glass, and other materials with various textures and colours to create some depth in your kitchen design. You can also combine different finishes for different materials to give a truly luxurious feel.

     

     Splashbacks and Feature Walls

    Splashbacks are essential for your cooking and cleaning area. Our designers recommend our clients to not get textured splashbacks as they can be very hard to clean. The good news however is that there is an extensive range for easy to clean splashbacks to choose for a luxury kitchen.

    1. Use a single slab of tile or marble- Cici, our in house designer recommends using one single slab of marble as a splashback for a clean look. Using a custom cut one piece of tile also means that you will have no grout lines which means that clean up will be easy.

    2. Tribeca collection from Tile depot- Ruth from Tile depot said that bright tiles or handmade looking tiles are very popular as splashbacks and feature walls. The 2021 Tribeca collection features premium tiles that look textured and handmade but are in fact manufactured in a way that they have a smooth surface which is easy to clean, making it a perfect choice for splashbacks.

     

    TIP: You can also opt at choosing a glass splashback or any other form of tiles. It is better to choose

     

    Feature walls

    Feature walls are great to add a different dimension and create more interest to your kitchen. There are several ways that you can create a feature wall in your kitchen. You can add a feature wall by painting a wall in a bold contrasting colour, adding tiles or a wall with plant creepers.

    If you are using tiles then you can install either woodgrain tiles, mosaics, or textured tiles on the wall to create more depth to your kitchen. If you do not want a whole wall of tiles then you can also create accents with mosaics like a horizontal strip of mosaics on a plain wall.

    5. Designer appliances to complement your designer kitchen

    As we talked above, getting energy star appliances are better for the environment, they will use less electricity, have a longer warranty and are more durable.

    When purchasing your appliances, think about the overall style of your kitchen and get appliances that complement your overall kitchen design. You can also opt for hiding your appliances inside your cabinetry which is done by attaching the material of your cabinet on the surface of your appliances. This is great if you are going for a clean and sleek look for your kitchen.

    For a modern and contemporary feel, opt for stainless steel rangehood with 6 or 8 gas hobs and stylish hood. You can also buy a smart steel fridge with double doors, a separate freezer, water dispenser and an ice maker. You can also either purchase a wine fridge or custom built a wine storage area.

    1. Style options for kitchen appliances

    SMEG and Bosch are two brands that are often used in designer kitchens because not only are they of superior quality, but you also have a lot of design options to choose from.

    2. Traditional kitchen appliance ideas

    If the overall design of your kitchen is traditional or cottage style, then try and purchase appliances that complement this style. Buy a large standalone gas cooktop with an oven and complement this with a matching hood. If you are going for a retro theme, then you can also use the retro appliances range designed by SMEG

    6. Luxury Flooring options for designer kitchens in New Zealand

    You want a flooring that is soft on your feet, durable, low in maintenance, beautiful and does not echo when you walk on it. The two best type of flooring for your kitchen are tiles and Stone based composite polymer.

    • Stone based composite polymer  is a new hybrid flooring option in New Zealand which is 100% waterproof which makes it a great option for kitchen floors. It is also softer and warmer on the feet as compared to porcelain tiles. They are also a great option for second floor kitchens as they do not echo as much as tiles. They are not as expensive as natural stone tiles and can also be used for mid-range kitchens as well as for designer kitchens.
    • Porcelain Tiles are more durable and waterproof than ceramic tiles but can feel cold in winter. If you are installing porcelain tiles in your kitchen then we do recommend clients to either install underfloor heating or put kitchen rugs during winter. The advantage of porcelain tiles is that they are easy to clean, are durable and have an extensive design range. We recommend using large format tiles 1200 by 900 or 600 by 900 for your kitchen floors for a more continuous and seamless design.

    Porcelain tiles can also be made to look like cement, wood or any other natural stone which makes them a versatile choice for most people.

    • Natural stone Tiles are one of the best and expensive options for kitchen flooring. Natural stone tiles have a natural beauty that really elevates a kitchen design. You can install the same tiles in your living and dining area if you have an open plan kitchen.

    7. What is the best lighting for my Luxury Kitchen?

    A brightly lit kitchen is a must as it is the centre of most of our activities in a home. We prepare our food, have our coffee, and often entertain guests/family in the area. Adding good lighting to your kitchen is not as simple as adding a few light bulbs on the walls or ceilings. Lighting goes beyond just having visibility in the kitchen. A well lit kitchen should make it easier for you to do your prep work with precision, it should be easy for you to stow and retrieve items in shelf and should make your kitchen look welcoming and spacious.

    Incorrect installation of lights can in fact make your affect the appearance of your kitchen negatively.

     

    Plan your kitchen lighting based on 3 distinct layers which serve a separate function.

    1. Lighting to carry out tasks

    • This is the general lighting which is needed to make your overall kitchen visible. This light should make cooking, cleaning, preparing food and navigating easy. One of the aims for this lighting is to make it easier to carry out your tasks.
    • So, think about the areas that you need to carry out these tasks. Install lights above your kitchen island to make preparation work easier. Install LED lights below your top cabinets so it illuminates your countertop, at the top end of your splashback and near the handles of all cabinets and drawers.
    • You should also add either LED ceiling lights or ceiling bulbs, so your entire kitchen is illuminated.

     

    Tips of installing your Task lights

    Tasks lights should be positioned directly above your sink, island, countertop, or other space where you carry out cooking tasks. Install the LED light strips under your upper cabinets and above the handles of your lower cabinets.

       2. Ambience lighting

    • This type of lighting creates a soft mood in your kitchen. This could either be lighting that can be made dimmer, or it could be in the form of pendant lighting on top of your kitchen island.
    • There are several design options available for pendant lighting so you will have plenty of options to choose from depending on the style of your kitchen. If your space allows then you can also install a chandelier. Recessed lighting can be installed on your ceiling or any opening like seen in vaulted ceilings.

     

    Tips on installing ambient lighting

    Ambient lighting should have a direct path to the floor of your kitchen. If you do not have an island, then install a chandelier directly above your floor or directly on top of your island.  If you are installing recessed lights, then position them at half the distance of the distance of your floors and ceilings. Also avoid creating shadows on your countertops by installing the recessed lighting above the countertop and not at the edge of it. The same concept would apply to semi flushed and flushed lighting.

     

    1. Accent Lighting

    • This type of light usually highlights a design feature in your kitchen. This could either be a feature wall or architectural feature in your kitchen. This is great especially in open planned kitchens where your kitchen is visible for the living and dining area. You could also but accent lights in glass cabinets with fine China or crockery.

    If you have a vaulted ceiling or any other ceiling feature that you want to highting then you can install cove lighting which basically means that they light is built into your ceiling. You can also install soft low profile lighting inside your cabinets.

    Tips on installing Accent lighting

    Think art galleries when installing accent lights especially if you are trying to highlight a feature wall. You can also put lights inside your cabinets with the light installed above the crockery or decorative items in the glass cabinets.

     


    8. Electric work and SMART Kitchen features

    If you are renovating your entire kitchen then chances are that you will be rewiring your kitchen. This is especially true if you are changing the layout of your kitchen because then you will have to switch all the plug points around. You can also add smart features to your kitchen that will improve the way you use your kitchen.

    Ideas to incorporate SMART features in your kitchen design

    • SMART appliances like a refrigerator that dispense water of any temperature that you like
    • A hot water tap so you do not have to boil water every time you need boiling water while cooking.
    • SMART home systems can be integrated within the design so you can control the light or the dimness of lights with your phone.
    • SMART lighting controlled by Bluetooth where you can set a time that you come home and it will automatically switch the lights on for the time that you get home.
    • SMART fridge that has cameras inside the fridge which can be connected to your phone. This way you can check what items you have run out of and get them on the way from work.
    • Sensor ovens which can sense that the food or meat is cooked and it will automatically switch off or set off an alarm so you will never burn or overcook a meal.
    • Plug points with a USB port so you can charge your phone while cooking
    • Sensor lighting that will switch the lights on automatically when you enter the kitchen
    • Range hoods that will automatically switch on at a certain fan speed suited to the type of cooking that is taking place.

      这仅仅是一个一般标准估算的费用指南,在您开始装修之前来帮助您在制定一个计划。然而, 大多数的客户可能并不适合这三种不同的类别。客户通常从这三个类别里挑些不同的方面来打造一个专属于他们自己的特别的厨房。

       

      如果您想保持您厨房整体的布局不变,但是又想做出一些改变,那么将会产生一些额外的费用。改变布局就会产生额外花费的原因是因为需要在您改变的区域增加一些新的管道和重新布置线缆,这些是需要委员会许可的。任何委员会的许可是需要建筑师的绘图,准备所需文件和检查。针对这些的额外的支出大概在2070纽币到6210纽币之间。

       

      节省预算小妙招:修复您厨房的橱柜和门。尝试抛光和恢复台面而不是选择买新的材料。

      4. 在新西兰需要花费多少钱来翻新一个小型厨房?

       

      小型厨房

      1. 大多数的房主都说过他们想要更多的空间来存放物品。所以,您可以增加一些额外的储存空间来安装推拉篮,装在香料的抽屉,装餐具和盘子碗的抽屉,甚至墙角柜。添加这些便利性的装置可以为您提供所需要的存储空间,而不必建造新的柜子来存储。
      2. 在您现有的橱柜里安装储物抽屉可以让您有额外的空间来准备饭菜。

       

      1. 额外的台面-挑选一个现代的单水槽而不是双水槽。可以选择有4个厨房炉灶,而不是有8个炉灶的炉具。 这将给您带来更多的柜台空间,而且您也可以用省下来的钱用于厨房里的其他您想要的方面。

       

      16个新西兰小型厨房设计理念指南

      专家提示

      翻新公司

      管理一间厨房的翻新意味着您必须协调所有不同的行业,如木工制作橱柜,产品供应商,地板安装人员,电工,水管工,油漆工,抹灰工,设计师,和厨房安装人员。您必须协调这些行业,比如他们的时间表,并解决任何可能出现的冲突。然而,大多数人没有时间来有效地管理一个项目,他们更愿意雇用一个可以为他们管理整个项目的公司。这样的翻新公司通常提供所有涉及的劳动力,有设计师,提供材料,并以批发价格提供电器。他们有一个项目经理,负责协调供应商的交货,管理所有的行业,并确保装修在所规定的期限之内的进行。

      厨房橱柜

      翻新一个厨房的橱柜的平均花销?

      当您想到您的厨房时,首先出现在您脑海中的可能是可用于储存干货的空间,如罐头、零食、面条和大米。由于您的厨房在装修中使用了各种质地、材料和颜色,当家人和朋友过来时,您厨房的橱柜能够给他们留下深刻的印象。您可以预期平均花费在4,140-11,040纽币之间。

      • 基础厨房的花销-保持您原有的橱柜。相反,您可以简单地更换您的橱柜门或合叶。您也可以给它们重 新刷上一层新的油漆。这将花费您每线性英尺5纽币-207纽币
      • 中档厨房橱柜中档厨房橱柜的价格在每线性英尺138-1,242纽币之间。您可以通过装修公司用中档产品定制橱柜。我们的大多数中档厨房都采用MDF Melteca定制的橱柜构架和门
      • 高档的橱柜您可以为豪华厨房使用更高端的材料,因为预算大多不是问题。这将花费您每线性英尺约2,070纽币。

      给厨房橱柜表面抛光-平均费用

       

      我们都想尽可能多的定制属于我们自己的厨房,但是有些时候并不能负担的起。在这种情况下,您可能会想简单的改动一下您橱柜的们或者把手。这有两种比较经济的方式可以达到您想要的结果。

      1. 表面抛光-除去现有的橱柜中旧的喷漆,并且重新上漆。 然而,要确保找专业的人来做表面抛光,因为他们接受过培训并且能够保证最终有一个理想的效果。这种方式对那些想省钱的房主们来说是非常容易承担起的,不会花费太多。花销将会在$2,070 到 $4,120 之间。
      2. 重修表面-沿用现有的橱柜,但是换一个新的柜门来替换现在的。借这个机会,房主可以选择他们想要的材料,颜色和设计。 记得问一下承包商都有什么推荐的定制的选择。在这个选项下,可能会花费$4,830纽币到$12,420纽币。
      3. 额外的五金零件-这并不是一个选项,但有些房主喜欢通过在定制的厨房中添加不同种类的把手来对他们的橱柜和抽屉进行尝试。较新的把手和旋钮的价格大概$2.76纽币 到 $27.6纽币起

      筹备您的厨房橱柜的主要方法

      Back To The Top 

      厨房电器

      翻新公司建议安装一些新的高质量的电器因为它可以增加您厨房整体的质量和家的质量。您可以预想每一个电器将花费138纽币到414纽币。电器可以是很昂贵的从而使您的预算增加。因为一些屋主倾向用她们旧的和现有的电器来节省花销,尤其是那些还可以正常工作的电器。

      • 基础的电器-如微波炉,垃圾处理,烤箱通常可以持续用很久。如果这些电器还处于一个比较好的工作状态的话,那么您就不需要再买一个新的电器。 如果您依然使用一些旧的家电,那您可以节省大概$276纽币到$1380纽币。
      • 能源之星级别的电器为什么要买能源之星级别的电器呢?这是因为它将减少您的能源花销,增加使用寿命和房屋价值,因为其能使您的房屋更加高效节能。现如今,市场上有很多可使用的能源之星级别的电器产品,说明不管您的预算是所少,这都是一个选择。然而,能源之星等级的电器比基础的电器更昂贵,但从长远来看,您将会节省更多。能源之星等级的电器如微波炉起始价为414纽币,洗碗机为1,200纽币,烤箱为1,150纽币,冰箱为1,500纽币。
      • 高端的电器这类家电拥有很好的使用寿命并且包括能源之星级别的电器。不同的是,这类家电有一些现代化特点,比如蓝牙,感应器或者更多的功能。对于这些额外的功能来说,它的价格将会在$1,380 纽币 到$6,900纽币
      • 您想要定制您的电器吗? 这个选项是最昂贵的因为它们通常需要根据您的厨房设置来固定于您的厨房之中,价格范围大概在2,070纽币到13,800纽币之间。没有什么需要改变您的厨房,但是整体上综合来会使您的厨房变的更加吸引人。

      厨房台面

      一个常见的问题就是经常有客户问我们关于选一个正确的适合他们厨房的台面。这是因为如今市面上有很种各式各样的不同价格的材料可供选择。房主通常寻找一个功能性强,耐磨并且防水的。

       

      DSC06467, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

      定制的石头工程台面用于玛丽的厨房。我们让这种人造石头看起来像有花纹的花岗岩,有光泽。上面选择的图案叫秋叶,就像它的名字一样,有黄色和芥末色的底色,很好地搭配了深色的橱柜。

       

      对于价格比较实惠的台面来说,可以尝试用薄片状或者人造石的台面。 石材工程台面指的是人造石,可以做成大理石或花岗岩。说到成本,它们更可能适用于基本和中档的厨房。至于您台面的最终的费用可能再$2,760到$6,210纽币之间。如果预算不是问题的话,那么您可以选择一个天然石像大理石或者花岗岩。这个的费用大约从4000纽币起,并且可以上升到7000纽币。 如果您正在打造一个豪华的翻新的话,那么您也可以考虑一下获得一个混凝土的台面。混凝土台面很适合现代住宅,但也是一个昂贵的选择,因为它们的价格在9,000纽币至20,000纽币之间。

      下表将向您展示所提供的台面的范围和费用。

      台面材料 每平方米的成本
      瓷砖 $76.70- $153.30

      厨房防溅板

      防溅板是厨房中的一个关键元素,因为它能让厨房清洁变得更加方便。它通常安装在灶台后面的墙上,减少油污的附着。防溅板通常采用易于清洁的材料,如玻璃、有较少灌浆线的大块瓷砖或人造石。

      厨房地板的费用

      地板对于厨房来讲是非常重要的一部分,因为我们花了很多时间在厨房。选择正确的地板类型是很重要的,因为您的厨房地板经历了很多磨损。它必须是一种易于清洁,不沾污和耐液体的材料。在购买地板材料之前,先看看地板是否耐用、耐磨、防水、舒适。

      对于选择一个经济实惠的地板来说,复合木地板是您在奥克兰可以购买的最流行和最便宜的地板。除了复合地板是现在最流行的,明智的做法是向专业人士查询适合您的地板选择类型。

       

      比如说:

      • 复合木地板–复合地板从外观和感觉方面都像真正的木地板,但它是人造的。复合地板的成本大约是2070至5520纽币。在预算紧张的情况下,它也很容易清洁,经久耐用,性价比高。
      • 瓷砖是厨房地板的另一个不错的选择,因为它们很容易维护。今天先进的地板技术使我们能够制造出既看起来像木材,摸起来也像木材的的瓷砖。这就说明您可以得到一个漂亮的木材或橡木的外观,而不需要使用难以维护的天然木材的麻烦。
      • 如果您正在寻找一个更豪华的选择,我们建议房主投资于地板,如来自Tile depot的石基地板。石基地板有终身保修,100%防水,易于维护,地板下加热,对阳光稳定。石材地板的平均成本大约从1,380纽币到4,830纽币不等。

       

      地板选择 平均成本
      瓷砖 $690 – $3,036
      木地板 $3,036- $6,900
      混凝土地板 $2,070- $9,522
      软木地板  $1,104- $2,208
      复合地板  $2,070- $5,520 
      亚麻地板 $1,380- $3,450
      板岩地板 $2,070- $4,830
      石材地板 $1,380- $4,830
      乙烯基地板 $1,656- $2,346
      竹地板 $828- $1,656
      大理石地板 $2070- $6,624

      玛丽·斯图亚特的设计理念是让厨房看起来像西班牙别墅。这意味着我们需要硬木地板。然而,由于硬木地板很难维护,所以我们安装了木纹瓷砖。这些瓷砖看起来像木头,摸起来也像木头,但保养起来比硬木地板容易得多。

      7. 在新西兰,为您的厨房翻新雇一个设计师的花费是多少?

      有些人可能认为,在装修厨房的时候,找一个设计师是没有必要的。然而,在一些情况下,装修公司会建议找一个设计师,特别是对想进行中高档的厨房装修的房主来说。设计师可以就纹理、颜色、材料和当今流行的风格为您提供建议。设计师还将创建3D模型,以及可以展现您的厨房与所有的油漆,材料,门把手,台面,和电器的渲染模型。所以您能够想象您的厨房在装修之后会变成什么样子。一个装修公司往往有自己的内部设计师,他们将在整个装修过程中与项目经理合作,所以您的图纸将会变成一个活生生的现实。

      8. 翻新您的厨房需要人力成本是多少?

      答案:雇佣多名工人的成本大约在2760纽币至10280纽币之间。这将包括水管工、电工、瓦工、灌水工、油漆工、批灰工、安装工、建筑工、项目经理、设计师,为了以防您需要委员会的许可,还可能将包含建筑师。

      管道成本

      这个只针对那些家里可能需要更换或者改变管道的户主。比如, 例如,水槽的新的管道系统,污水管等。然而,每个厨房水龙头都有自己的费用。

      • 对于一个基本的厨房水龙头,它的成本大约为207纽币至414纽币。 然而,厨房水龙头的成本可以根据您选择的品牌或风格而有所不同。某些设计者的水龙头的费用可以达到2000纽币。
      • 安装一个厨房水槽的费用和是345纽币到828纽币。
      • 更换电器也需要水电工,这将花费您大约621至2480纽币。

      厨房里的照明和电力工程需要多少钱?

      回答: 

      电气工程的费用约为每小时69纽币至138纽币。这包括。

      • 安装内嵌式照明
      • 新电器的电缆 – 炉子、微波炉、洗衣机和烤箱。
      • 灯具开关–插头、USB端口、柜内灯等。
      • 橱柜下面的灯。

      更换燃气管道可能是一笔很大的开支,因为您需要由有证书的专业人士来完成。这方面的费用可能在345纽币到2500纽币之间。

      油漆费用

      我们建议客户对厨房进行专业的刷漆。这是因为,与您在家里做DIY工作相比,由专业人员进行的良好的油漆工作总是会给您带来更好和持久的效果。

      专业油漆比普通油漆更昂贵,因为它包括抹灰、GIB填充、涂抹2层底漆和2层面漆。专业人员还将覆盖您的橱柜,帮助把电器搬走,并掩盖电口。

      小厨房的装修费用从1,104纽币起,大厨房的装修费用可高达3,500纽币。

      铺设瓷砖和地板

      如果您正在装修您的整个厨房,那么有可能您也会改变您的地板。如果您要安装复合地板,那么您不得不聘请专业人士来帮助您安装。供应和安装复合地板的平均成本是每平方米80-140纽币之间。要安装复合地板,人工费在每平方米50-80纽币之间。

      如果您要在地板上安装瓷砖,那么您就必须雇用一个瓦工以及灌浆工。铺设普通厨房瓷砖的劳动力成本将从1000纽币到3500纽币不等,取决于安装的复杂性。如果您安装的是较大的瓷砖,那么劳动力成本会更低,因为会有较少的灌浆线。如果您安装的是较小的瓷砖,那么劳动力成本会更高,因为将有更多的灌浆(美缝)工作要做。

      许可

      在新西兰,奥克兰委员会负责管理您的房产许可证。如果您要比较大地改变厨房的布局,就需要许可证。当您改变厨房的布局时,水管工将不得不建立额外的管道,这需要理事会的许可。如果您打算拆除厨房里的承重墙,您也需要许可证。

      奥克兰委员会的做法是,他们看您的建筑师所画的图,看您的房子的改造是否可以进一步进行。奥克兰市议会审查建筑师的图纸,以确定是否可以拆除承重墙、重新布线或增建管道。一旦他们批准了许可证,您的承包商将开始工作。 奥克兰市议会的建筑许可证费用约为2500-6500纽币。然而,有一点您需要知道就是从理事会获得批准大约需要1至5个月。我们的建议是在今年早些时候发送您的许可证,所以工作可以在圣诞节前开始并完成。

      9. 如何在预算范围内改造厨房?

      不管是什么原因,在装修的时候,预算是很重要的。当您准备投资于一些需要您花血汗钱的东西时,这一点尤其正确。对您想花的钱有一个清晰的概念是很好的,这样您就可以为装修设定一个固定的预算。在对装修公司作出承诺之前,最好能从他们那里得到一个固定的报价。

      我们也要求我们的客户有一些额外的钱,因为沿途可能会有一些不可预见的情况。这可能包括在装修过程中发现水渍或腐烂的木材。这可能会让您多花1000-2000纽币。

      基本厨房的预算。

      对于一个基本的厨房,装修厨房的估计费用约为20,700纽币。您必须知道,在制定基本厨房的预算时,您必须自己挑选材料和安装,或寻找适合您预算的专业人士。请看下面的表格,了解适合您的预算制定计划。

      基本、中档、高档厨房的预算。

       

      基本厨房 中档厨房 高档厨房
      最高20,700纽币 32,700-41,400 纽币 > 41,400纽币

      • 新的厨房布局
      • 高端豪华产品
      • 设计师产品

      • 包括所有工种
      • 项目管理

       

      在预算内进行装修的4大技巧

        1. 如果您想省钱,那么尝试一下I.Y的项目。这是可以让您自己定制和选择您想要的材料的一个很好的方式。例如,您可以自行改变橱柜和喷漆。这种方式可以让您节省人工的开销和项目监管的费用。 然而,您可能需要考虑雇一个专业管道工和电工,因为这些属于比较专业的项目。
        2. 尝试和选择您自己的橱柜。尝试和决定您是否想重修表面或者刷新您的橱柜。对于经济型的厨房来说,这两种选择都是非常经济的选项
        3. 在您的厨房里只升级必要的东西,而不是您想要的东西。您可以考虑改变您的橱柜门把手,货架 的,甚至在以后的阶段一个花哨的玫瑰金水龙头。
        4. 组织好您的预算 – 如果您的预算紧张,那么有可能您将不得不管理自己的项目。雇用一家提供项 目管理的公司可能不适合您的预算。如果您要管理您的装修,那么要确保您的每一步都在那里。分阶段进行装修是一个好主意。

      11. 制定翻新厨房之前的计划的7个小妙招

      翻新之前

      设定一个预算! 问问自己可以自己做D.I.Y还是愿意雇用一个装修公司为您做。

      1. 看看什么是最适合您的厨房布局! 如果需要帮助,那么您可能要考虑一个设计师来帮助您的厨房的布局。
      2. 想想您的厨房需求,而不是您的个人欲望,因为您可以在以后的日子里投资其他事情。
      3. 挑选您的厨房中需要更多关注的方面,并得到帮助恢复它们。这将帮助您减少预算;但是,在未来进行修改时,会有额外的费用。
      4. 翻新一个厨房需要6-8周的时间,所以要确保您在不太需要厨房的时候进行翻新。您也可以考虑在装修过程中建一个临时的厨房。
      5. 请确保您选择的装修公司在施工场所有良好的健康和安全做法。跟您的承包商说说这个问题,他们会帮您解决一些问题,因为装修产生的灰尘可能会对您的健康造成长期的损害,当您吸入这些灰尘的时候。试着放个假吧!
      6. 清洁! 问问您的承包商,如果您希望有一个清洁服务,他们会为您做的。

      • 还要检查您的厨房在清理完厨房的灰尘后是否一尘不染。
      • 最好询问您的承包商,一旦您的装修完成,您的电器、材料和工艺的保证。
      • 最后也是最重要的是,享受您的厨房!😊

      12. 如何在奥克兰选择合适的装修公司?

      9件选择装修公司前要看的事

      1.研究–至少找到三家可以雇佣的装修公司来装修您的厨房。这可以通过询问朋友和家人来完成。也可以通过查看公司的网站来检查该公司的情况。当检查他们的网站,您要检查出该公司的声誉,如他们的推荐信,目前的项目或谷歌的客户评论。

      2.与人见面 – 与公司的项目经理见面,并与他/她聊一聊他们过去做过的类似项目也是很好的。尽可能多地问他们问题。这将有助于您了解您在项目期间与他们的互动情况。

      3.报价–不要接受您从一个公司得到的第一个报价。获取几个报价并进行比较。确保您得到一个固定的报价,并明确列出可能的变化。最便宜的公司不一定是最好的公司,所以要谨慎选择。

      4.信任-检查公司的供应商是很重要的。通常情况下,装修公司会在互联网上为他们做广告,但是,请确保您向他们询问他们的供应商。选择一个与知名供应商合作的公司,这些供应商会为他们的产品提供保证和担保。

      5.合法的公司–这是在决定您希望为您的厨房雇用的公司时的关键方面。所有的公司都应该有一个执业许可证来运作。 请确保您对公司的执照做一些研究:https://companies-register.companiesoffice.govt.nz/。

      6.感言 – 确保您问他们过去的厨房改造之前,选择公司。这将有助于您看到他们的客户在装修时的经验。

      7.与过去的客户交谈 – 您可以要求装修公司给您一个他们过去的客户名单。与这些客户聊一聊他们在该公司的经验。您可以询问他们在橱柜、台面、地板甚至是防溅板上使用的材料。另一个问题要问过去的客户,看看是否有任何缺陷?过去的客户对他们的厨房是否满意,还是在寻找别的东西?

      8.保险 – 确保装修公司有保险,以防在装修过程中发生任何意外。另一种方法是检查该公司是否能够处理该项目,因为它愿意在某个日期前按时完成。这表明该企业是一个健康和繁荣的企业,有良好的系统。

      9.合同–与您的银行、会计师或律师取得联系,决定进行下一步的工作。在签署合同之前,厨房改造公司会给您画出合同中的步骤、报价、保险或项目的时间安排。建议看看双方是否同意该合同,并希望进入下一个步骤。

      总之,装修厨房的费用取决于各种因素。预算规划也取决于您的需求是什么,以及您作为一个家庭在厨房的互动方式。如果您是为了出售或增加价值,以获得更好的租金收益,那么您应该只是做一个升级,如改变橱柜和油漆的房间,以获得更好的投资回报。

      如果您是为了改善功能和提高生活质量而装修,那么请确保您选择的材料可以持续很长时间,并且易于维护。设计师还将帮助您改善厨房的功能,通过改变布局或通过纳入创新的存储等功能,最大限度地提高存储。

      像我们这样的装修公司提供全面的服务,包括设计费用、定制台面、橱柜、所有行业,如电工、水管、瓦工、灌浆工、油漆工、建筑商、议会许可证、电器、装置和项目管理。

      常见的问题

      翻新我的厨房需要多少钱?

      在奥克兰,如果您和装修公司一起装修,一个普通的厨房将在22,000-30,000纽币之间。要了解决定厨房装修成本的所有因素,您可以阅读我们的厨房成本指南:https://superiorrenovations.co.nz/kitchenrenovationcostnz。

      我必须要有自己的厨房设计师吗?

      如果您和我们一起装修,我们有内部的设计师,他们会帮助您提供建议,以及在我们开始装修之前创建3D模型和成品厨房的效果图。

      我必须自己找电工、水管工或任何其他工人吗?

      如何在预算紧张的情况下装修我的厨房?
