What is Kitchen Fitting & Remodelling?

Whether you’re thinking about upgrading your kitchen benchtops or considering a complete kitchen refit, hiring a kitchen fitter will help to ensure that your new kitchen is installed to the highest standards.

When you hire a kitchen fitter, you’ll need to supply your kitchen cabinets, fixtures and fittings. Your kitchen fitter will then complete a dry fit, involving building and fitting your kitchen cabinets, sink, taps, appliances and any other fittings.

Many kitchen fitters will also remove your old kitchen as well as plastering and re-tiling your walls and floors or painting your kitchen for an additional cost.

It’s worth noting that a kitchen fitter will not connect your appliances to mains supplies or set them up, so you may also need to hire a gas plumber, electrician or plumber to connect your new appliances up.

What changes the price of Kitchen Fitting & Remodelling?  

The price of kitchen fitting and remodelling will depend on several different factors including:

  • Kitchen size

  • Services required

  • Location

Kitchen size

The cost of your kitchen installation will depend largely on the size of the kitchen being fitted and how many cabinets are being installed. A small and compact galley kitchen will be significantly cheaper to install than a large family kitchen. This is due to the amount of time that it will take to fit a large kitchen.

Services required

The price of your kitchen installation will also be influenced by any further services that you decide to add on. This could include removal of your old kitchen, plastering, painting or tiling. Any additional services that you require will increase the cost of your kitchen installation.


You’ll also need to factor your location into the price of your kitchen installation. The price of hiring an independent kitchen fitter tends to be higher in cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, whilst prices in more rural areas are typically lower.

Is it worth paying for independent Kitchen Installation & Remodelling?

Choosing to hire an independent kitchen fitter gives you increased control over every aspect of your kitchen design. You can choose exactly how you want it to be designed and fitted and communicate your wishes directly to your kitchen fitter.

When you hire an independent kitchen fitter, they will be contracted directly to you, rather than being sub-contracted through a retailer. This means that that they are accountable to you and will work to your standards.

The benefits of choosing to hire an independent kitchen fitter are endless, but finding the right one for your project is often difficult.
