What is the cost of a new kitchen in Australia? If your kitchen is stuck in the 70s or 80s, it might be time to think about doing a kitchen renovation or even installing a new kitchen from scratch, but you might be thinking the average cost for a new kitchen will be unaffordable. With so much time spent in the kitchen each day, it’s worthwhile taking the time to do some kitchen home improvement to create a warm and inviting room that you and your family will enjoy spending time in. From walk-in pantries, spacious cabinets, enclosed rubbish and recycling bins, a multifunctional island bench, energy-saving lighting, the options for a functional yet stylish modern kitchen are endless. So it follows that the renovation costs for a kitchen can really start to add up!
Thankfully, there are home improvement loans available that can help you start your kitchen project sooner than you might think. MoneyMe offers personal loans from $2,100 up to $50,000 that can be used for a variety of purposes, including remodelling a kitchen.
Before thinking about the best way to get access to finance, you’ll need to work out the cost of a new kitchen. There are several new kitchen costs to factor in, and every kitchen is different, so the price between kitchen upgrade projects can vary significantly. Firstly, there’s the cost of the kitchen components and accessories such as cabinets, doors, flooring, lighting, electrical appliances and more. You’ll also need to decide on the quality and type of materials you use – Do you want laminate or granite benchtops? Timber or tiled floors? Top of the range fridges, dishwashers, stoves and ovens or standard appliances? All of these decisions will impact the cost of a new kitchen. You’ll also need to budget for labour costs such as plumbers, electricians and other tradies, and if you are going to be without a kitchen for a while, you may also need to factor in the cost of takeaway meals. If, after gathering up some quotes and doing your budget, you find that a fully fitted kitchen costs too much for you at the moment, you can always opt for a smaller kitchen renovation. Even just replacing the cabinet doors, adding a splashback or giving your kitchen a fresh coat of paint can brighten up your kitchen, and the kitchen makeover costs will be a lot less than full kitchen installation costs.
So you’ve decided you want to renovate your kitchen and you’ve made a budget to give you a better idea about the cost of a new kitchen, what now? If you’ve got enough cash saved up and want to pay for your new kitchen upfront, that’s great. But if you are like a lot of people, you’ll need to take out a loan or another form of financing. From refinancing your mortgage or using equity in your home to personal loans or home renovation loans, there are several options available, so you’ll need to decide which one works best for your financial circumstances.
