How do I make the most from a Kitchen Shack Kitchen?

Our DIY kitchens have been developed to suit anyone, home renovators, small home builders, holiday house owners, investment property owners and anyone wanting to update their kitchen on a budget.

 

Kitchen Shack designs and supplies complete Kitchens, Laundries and Home Office, we do not sell one off cabinets.  We have recommended installers and trades who can assist with your renovation.  Our unique point of difference is fully assembled with no cabinet assembly required – quicker and easier to install!

Kitchen Shack is a design and supply company only. We do have recommended installers and trades who are experienced with our product to help you out.

Every kitchen has a different design and shape and will therefore vary on the number of cabinets.  The price will also alter according to the style and benchtop materials chosen.  We find at Kitchen Shack a small Kitchen can start anywhere between $8,000 and a large Kitchen Shack Kitchen may cost anywhere up to $25,000, the average kitchen cost is around $9,000-$10,000.

Definitely not! Our quality systems ensure quality products and in fact, may embarrass the more expensive competitors. When comparing kitchen quotes be sure to compare kitchens of equal quality, design and style.

  • The state of the art manufacturing supplier systems ensures production costs are kept to a minimum so we can pass this onto you.
  • Because we are supplying so many kitchens it provides strong buying power with suppliers.

  • Kitchen Shack is superior to other DIY Kitchen providers on a number of levels:

    • Fully Assembled Quality –  materials and workmanship are fully assembled for an easier renovation and all produced using high quality.
    • Price -*Lowest prices guaranteed – we will beat any written price for the same design, product and service by 5%.

    • Recommended installers and trades.

This totally depends on the products and benchtops you choose as well as the demand on kitchen renovations at time of purchase.  A Kitchen Renovation can take between 6 – 8 weeks but once again depending on the seasonality demand at the time of the year.

That’s easy.  Our kitchen designers will design your kitchen in the showroom for FREE to be both functional and stylish. All you need do is bring your plan or measurements into the showroom and spend 2 hours with our Designers to discuss and view your design.

One of the keys is storage, flow and preparation space within the kitchen.  Working with an experienced Designer will assist to make the best use of your current space to achieve a fully functional, well flowing kitchen with loads of storage!

Kitchen Shack kitchens come fully assembled making them easy for any person to install.  We supply a step-by-step instruction manual and an instructional video.  We find that 98% of our customers use a recommended installer and trade of their choice making the kitchen project easier and quicker.

Of course, you can.  Alternatively, a recommended professional can install much quicker and cause less disruption to the home. It is important to remember a kitchen or laundry renovation can cause lots of stress so our customers prefer recommended professionals to install.  Should you choose to install Kitchen Shack will provide an Installation Guide and a video for you to watch to ensure you install the kitchen correctly.

Definitely – we back our product with a 10-year guarantee and a lifetime warranty on hinges.  Many other suppliers have a 7 year Warranty so we are serious about backing our quality product.

Yes.  The cabinets can easily be adapted to use in the laundry and other areas of the home.  We often find customers do both their kitchen and laundry at the same time to save costs and time hassles with renovations.

This is a very important question.  By visiting showrooms and viewing the products you can then visualise what you like and most importantly what would suit your home.  We have 5 showroom locations in Nunawading, Preston, Kilsyth and Maribyrnong and Moorabbin.

First we would suggest you Download the Design Guide which is an excellent source of information.  This Guide provides step by step information including a checklist that is perfect for explaining how to measure your kitchen space including window, fridge, appliance spaces etc.  All that is required is a rough drawing with all measurements so the Designer can design your kitchen or laundry to your needs and provide an on the spot quote.  Of course there is the option for you to organise a final check measure following your order.  Bookings are essential.  Our kitchen showrooms are busy and we don’t want you sitting around if we are designing someone else’s kitchen. You can book a design online or telephone the kitchen showroom closest to you.
