What kitchen renovation ideas are currently popular in Timaru/Ashburton?

Here in Timaru and Ashburton we love a good barbeque so it’s no surprise that a popular kitchen renovation idea looks at a kitchen design that encourages open plan dining and indoor-outdoor flow to a home’s outdoor entertaining area.

These modern kitchen designs usually encompass a central island, which acts as both a meal prep area, drinks bar, buffet service or, when not entertaining, school homework zone! Homeowners can put their own signature style on these central islands with a choice of benchtops, central sinks, surrounding storage, and overhanging lights.

Another popular kitchen renovation idea is the extension of storage within the space through the installation of a scullery. This may encroach on a home’s laundry but having an area in the home where pantry supplies can be out of sight, or an extra dish drawer can be added, can certainly help keep the heart of the home pumping!

How much does a kitchen renovation cost in Timaru/Ashburton?

If you’re embarking on a modern kitchen design or you have small kitchen ideas you want to consider, cost is certainly a factor for most Timaru and Ashburton homeowners. And that’s where your local Renovation Consultant can help. By first understanding what it is you want to achieve from your kitchen renovation, they can put together a fixed quote accurate to your project.

While your quote will depend on the size, scale, and complexity of kitchen renovation you’re embarking on, it does help to look at other projects that have been completed.

Polished finishings added to this kitchen revival in Riccarton, Christchurch, which also included patterned tile flooring and double glazing throughout. The seven-week project, which did have a few challenges due to delays in supply chain issues, cost the homeowners $129,000.

Another kitchen renovation in Burwood, Christchurch was a priority for these homeowners, who opted for a bespoke kitchen which they complemented with new flooring. The $112,000 project focused on details such as under-cabinet LED lighting, engineered stone benchtops, and a sophisticated tile look splashback. 

*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.

Do you need consent to renovate a kitchen?

Plumbing and electricity are two key components of most kitchen renovations so consent is usually required. However, your local Renovation Consultant will take care of any council application required and the paperwork and documentation needed to ensure your project progresses smoothly.
