The kitchen tends to be the centre point of the home; particularly for social gatherings, family chats or homework supervision while meals are being prepared. Therefore, it should be a room that is designed for functionality, easy-maintenance and enjoyment. Refresh’s bespoke design and build process is an ideal solution for homeowners who would like to upgrade their kitchen within a set budget and style.
Because Refresh offers bespoke design solutions, we can create a kitchen design that perfectly suits you and your family. Our services include:
- New kitchen layouts

Refresh offers a 5-step renovation process which includes design, build and project management. This allows us to design your kitchen to your budget and then manage your design throughout the build, ensuring your project stays in-line with your specifications through every stage. While every project differs in cost, most fall within three price ranges. Kitchen designs which keep the original layout are the most affordable option; costs usually start from around $30,000+. If you would like to make adjustments to your kitchen layout, prices usually start from around $55,000+. Kitchen extensions which include high-end makeovers are difficult to put a price on, however, Refresh has carried out kitchen extensions which exceed $200,000. Your local renovation specialist will be able to provide you with a cost estimate accurate to your specific project.
Please note: these costs are rough estimates only and are subject to change.
Changes to your kitchen’s plumbing, electrical points or structure will most likely require council permission. Your Refresh Manukau specialist will be able to advise you on whether or not this applies to your kitchen design and can take care of the application process for you.
Modern kitchens are the style of choice in the vast majority of newly renovated Manukau homes, and this probably comes down to the functionality and low-maintenance features of modern design. Kitchen islands are a must, with engineered stone benchtops being a common and easy-to-clean choice. Neutral colours and efficient storage are other key considerations when it comes to making your kitchen feel spacious and tidy. A standout design feature in Manukau kitchens is that many homeowners are choosing to create a benchtop preparation zone with built-in storage both above and below.
