Kitchen Makeovers and Custom Renovations

Which one is right for me?

Here at Waratah, we offer both makeovers and full, custom kitchen renovations. So which option is right for you? It comes down these considerations:

Budget and Time – A kitchen makeover is a super cost-effective solution to giving your outdated kitchen a facelift. With a makeover versus a full-fledged kitchen renovation, we keep the basic structure of your existing kitchen which means big money and time savings.

Condition – If your cabinets are less than 20 years old and in good shape structurally, they’re good candidates for a makeover. 

Scope – If your current kitchen layout is working for you and you don’t see any obvious ways in which a new kitchen would be an improvement, then a kitchen makeover may be a good option for you. However if you’re looking to reconfigure the layout, expand the footprint or move the electrical and plumbing components around, you should consider a custom kitchen renovation.

    A kitchen bench makeover involves resurfacing or replacing your existing countertops and often the splashbacks as well. This is actually one of our specialties! 

    We specialise in Granite Transformations kitchen bench makeovers

    Waratah Kitchens specialise in resurfacing kitchen benchtops using genuine Granite Transformations engineered stone via an unique process that involves applying a layer of the stone over your existing benchtop. Here’s how the process typically works:

    1. Assessment: We will visit your home to assess the condition of your existing benchtop and take measurements.

    2. Design: You’ll work with a designer to choose the color and pattern for your kitchen bench makeover from the stone or marble range.

    3. Preparation: The team will prepare your existing benchtop by cleaning it and making any necessary repairs.

    4. Installation: The team will install the new surface by applying a layer of beautiful engineered over the existing benchtop. They’ll also install new sinks, taps, and other accessories as needed.

    The entire process typically takes just 1 to 2 days, and because we’re applying the new surface over the existing benchtop, there’s no need for messy demolition or removal of the old benchtop.

    Granite Transformations offers a variety of colors and patterns to choose from, and the surfaces are resistant to stains, scratches, and heat.
    A kitchen bench makeover can be a great way to refresh the look of your kitchen without having to undergo a full renovation, learn more here.

    In most cases, you don’t need council approval for a kitchen makeover that involves updating countertops, cabinets, or other cosmetic changes. However, if you’re planning on making structural changes to your kitchen, such as moving walls or changing the layout, you may need council approval. A good first step is to book a free design consultation with our helpful and knowledgeable kitchens designers.

    Regulations can vary a bit from council to council, so if you’re unsure, it’s always a good idea to check with your local council to see if any permits or approvals are required for your specific renovation project.

    One of the best things about our kitchen makeovers is that the completion time is greatly reduced compared to a full kitchen renovation.

    In a majority of cases we can start demo and preparation on a Monday and have you back in your beautiful new kitchen by Friday, so that you can get back to enjoying your home as soon as possible.

    We understand that a kitchen renovation can be a disruptive and time-consuming process. We have a team of tried and true professionals who are dedicated to delivering high-quality results in a timely manner.
