We pick up our new kitchen on sat, tomorrow I'm going to look at tiles then to buy a new oven on Sunday !!! Yah!!
Congrats. We have an ikea kitchen now 1yr old. Love it!!!
Benchtop was not ikea.
What colours did u decide on?
The high gloss gray with a black bench top & high gloss red tiles for back splash !!
My kitchen so far
Can I ask a rude question? Those that installed bunnings & Ikea kitchens, approximately how much did they cost? Our last kitchen was done by a kitchen company, it cost a lot, I'm wondering if next time it would be better to do it ourselves. Is the quality okay? Is there any guarantees?
You kitchen is looking great, what colour kick boards are you going to use? Splash back? Very exciting.
We have a bunnings kitchen, it cost is about 6k, that's with upgraded timber bench tops. Quality is awesome and they come with a 5 or 10 year warranty (can't remember which). I love my kitchen.

We put a new kitchen into our house when we moved in. It's a medium size kitchen and from memory cost $11k for them to rip out and remove the existing kitchen and fully install the new kitchen. This didn't include plumbing and electrical expenses or appliances. It included a large pantry, broom cupboard, 6 drawers around the oven, overhead cupboards over the stove, fridge space cabinet with overhead cupboard, central island comprising 4 drawers, microwave space and 3 drawers for crockery, double cupboard for kitchen sink and one more cupboard, door handles, kickboards and all bench tops. It also costs more if you choose drawers over cupboards.
Something I saw in my friend's home in Germany, the kickboards were long flat cupboards that you kicked gently to open. They were perfect for oven trays.
ETA: We bought our kitchen from a specialist kitchen manufacturer that could make cupboards and units to your exact specifications so if you wanted a cupboard 30.82 cm wide they could make it that wide unlike places like Ikea, Bunnings and Freedom who only make the units in certain widths and heights. This suited us as we had to fit the units into non-standard spaces.

Thanks, we have always had a specialist company do them (we have done 4 renovations now), but thinking if the quality is good we should look at these alternatives.
My hubby installed it himself! What u can see so far is only 3k worth, we doing a red tile back splash pick them up next week!
