We also work closely with Stone Solutions, who offer a 7mm engineered stone overlay, meaning your benchtop can also have a makeover. Generally, kitchen makeovers are cost effective and can be completed with minimal disruption to your home.

An average kitchen is 4-6 weeks for production. This does not mean that you are without your kitchen for this amount of time. Depending on the work required prior to your new kitchen being installed, your old kitchen is removed a few days prior to new cabinets being installed. Installation of your cabinets is normally 1-2 days. If you have chosen Engineered Stone benchtops these are site checked and installed normally within 7-10 working days. Once your benchtops have been installed the Trades can reconnect for plumbing and electrical and splashbacks can be completed.
Kitchen Essence can also supply custom wardrobes, vanities, entertainment units, office furniture and laundries. Please see our custom gallery for inspiration.
Kitchen Essence takes pride in the whole process from design through to installation and treats every job and customer very personally. We hope that every customer is happy and satisfied although with any renovation, things can happen. Supply of some items may be delayed, small maintenance items may need to be ordered. We value and welcome customer feedback and endeavour to rectify any issues as quickly as possible.
