Frequently Asked Questions
“We believe custom means a space designed especially for you.” A custom kitchen is a fully functional space that takes your lifestyle into account. Much like getting a bespoke suit from a tailor, a custom kitchen is designed and built with you and your family’s needs in mind. Best of all you get to choose all the materials and appliances that get installed in your custom kitchen, from the benchtop to the custom cabinetry, to the lighting, and details like taps and joinery.
When it comes to renovating your kitchen, custom designed kitchens have many benefits and are a valuable investment. Look at the advantages of choosing a custom designed kitchen.
- Build to fit your space
- Personalize your storage
- Match your kitchen style
- Higher quality craftsmanship
Not necessary, you get what you pay for. Quality of material, hardware, and workmanship determine the true price of your new kitchen. You will receive personalized cabinetry that is suited to your storage, space, style, and usage in return for the money you will spend on your dream kitchen. All our custom-made kitchens are made with Australian made moisture resistant boards and high-quality Blum hardware which gives you peace of mind for the rest of your life.
A kitchen is the hub and heart of a home and holds a huge number of products. A rough guide is 250kg of items will be held in your kitchen at any one time and you will walk over 2000 kilometers over fifteen years of use. This means your kitchen needs to be built to withstand constant use.
We always consider the following for a kitchen renovation:
- Style and design
- Usage and lifestyle
- Spatial flow
- Best lead times for your renovation
- Product and workmanship guarantee
If you are looking to save money on labor and carry out the installation yourself, this can be done.
An option we provide is to assist you with the design of your new kitchen. However, we would recommend having someone with knowledge in the industry to assist you with your design to ensure you are utilizing all available space. Also, if the cabinetry is not installed properly, it will not provide a good finish and potentially may not last.
We would recommend purchasing any flatpack cabinetry from an Australian manufacturer as they will use Australian Standards materials, which are of better quality and long lasting. We can offer pricing on flatpack cabinetry should you prefer to carry out the works yourself.
AJB Kitchens only carries out full kitchen renovations as we feel the alternative is not cost-effective for our customers. Your existing cupboards (carcasses) will not last as long as your new doors and drawer fronts, resulting in the need to fully replace your kitchen sooner, effectively meaning you are spending more money.
Not at all, all our board materials and hardware are Australian made and all cabinets are manufactured in our factory at Kings Park.
